Take a single pack 30-45 minutes before bed. For best results, take on an empty stomach. If you use an evening protein shake allow 30 minutes for digestion before taking Animal PM. Animal PM can be stacked with any other product in the Animal line, including foundational staples like Pak, Flex and Omega and cycled products such as STAK or TEST
Animal PM is a staple supplement that can be taken year round to promote optimum recovery.* To take full advantage, try using it as part of “The Ultimate Recovery Stack.” Pair it up with other staples, Animal Pak and Animal Nitro to maximize your body's ability to recover.* Take Pak with breakfast, Nitro immediately post workout and PM right before bed. Remember to take in the necessary whole food calories and protein to support such a hardcore stack, and be sure to put an emphasis on sleep. Train hard and sleep hard and you'll be on your way to making serious gains in strength, performance and size in no time.
All in all, Animal PM is the most complete sleep product on the market, and the only one tailored specifically to the unique needs of balls-to-the-wall training bodybuilders. It's not a relaxation product. It's not an anti-catabolic supplement. It's not a GH booster. It's not an immune support supplement. It's not a recovery product. It's all of these products, efficaciously dosed and wrapped up into one convenient, pre-dosed pack. It's complete sleep support for the hard training athlete. Add Animal PM to your nighttime repertoire and reap the results. Rest, recover and grow, with Animal PM.
Animal PM contains powerful herbs like valerian root and chamomile which have been used for centuries because of their ability to naturally promote relaxation.* Coupled with L-Theanine, an amino acid that is found naturally in green tea and is known for its ability to support sleep quality and enhanced mental acuity, and humulus lupulus, also known as hops, which has been used traditionally to support sleep quality.
Mucuna pruriens is then added for its ability to promote deep sleep by elevating the production of l-dopa, an amino acid that converts into dopamine. Dopamine is an essential component of our body and it's required for proper functioning of the brain. The blood carries dopamine into the brain, where it naturally increases HGH production from the pituitary gland, important for recovery and well being. What Animal PM works to do is facilitate a calming state of being prior to bed so that you can more easily fall asleep and stay in deep sleep.
Next up in Animal PM is the GH Boosting Complex. This complex consists of specialized natural growth hormone (GH) boosters. What is growth hormone? Growth hormone is a protein-based polypeptide hormone made up 191 amino acids that is synthesized and secreted by cells in the anterior pituitary called somatotropes. GH plays a vital role in several complex physiological processes, including growth and metabolism.
In terms of GH support, Animal PM contains a key support blend of the following amino acids-Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), arginine alpha-ketoglutarate (AKG), ornithine HCl, l-tryptophan-and the phospholipid, alpha glycerylphosphorylcholine (alpha-GPC). GABA is main inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain. It aids in helping the brain to relax as well as balance excitation with inhibition. In addition to GABA's relaxation effects, studies suggest that it also stimulates the natural production of GH.*
Arginine and ornithine are two other well studied and highly touted aminos that can increase the release of GH. Arginine, in particular, also has potent modulating effects on the immune system, supporting immunologic responses and accelerating recovery.* So not only are these ingredients helping to boost natural GH levels, which has its own set of benefits, the secondary anti-catabolic benefits are very helpful to bodybuilders and strength athletes as well.*
Tryptophan is an essential amino acid that has a role in supporting natural GH production and supporting cortisol (stress) levels.* It is a precursor for serotonin, an intermediary to the synthesis of melatonin, which plays a key role in the regulation of mood and sleep patterns. The complex is then rounded out by the patented alpha-GPC, a naturally occurring phospholipid precursor and metabolite derived from lecithin. Alpha-GPC has been shown to potentiate the effects of growth hormone releasing hormone and support growth hormone secretion. Other benefits of alpha-GPC include supporting metal focus and liver health, no doubt functions of value to the bodybuilder set.*
Last but not least is the Immune and Recovery Complex, also bolstered by robust doses of powerful and versatile aminos that may help support a healthy immune system.*
On the recovery side, if your body isn't recovering from the constant stresses being placed on it-weight lifting, dieting, work, etc, you just can't expect your body to progress further. Animal PM takes this into account with its unique Animal Nitro EAA Blend, a combo of the 100%pure uncoupled essential amino acid (EAA) blend found in the popular and effective post-workout amino acid recovery supplement, Animal Nitro. This blend supplies the body with only the purest amino acids needed for recovery-the EAAs. To enhance and maximize recovery, supplementations with the right form of amino acids are a must for hard training athletes. The targeted use of EAAs can heighten the anabolic process and hasten muscular recovery.*
Another highly esteemed critical amino acid, l-glutamine, is added to the mix. L-glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the plasma, constituting over 60% of the total intramuscular amino acids. Glutamine is a precursor to glutathione and has antioxidant effects by increasing intracellular glutathione content. Glutamine is used at a high rate by a number of cells of the immune system-neutrophils, lymphocytes and macrophages-and is essential for the viability and normal functioning of these important cells. Glutamine may also be an important modulator of growth hormone, increases protein synthesis and is highly anti-catabolic amongst other things.*
The final two parts of this complex are two, unique patented compounds-Immunolin® and HumanofortTM. The premium shit that pushes what is already a powerful rest and recovery formula in the stratosphere-but that is what you've come to expect from Animal.* Immunolin® is a purified immunoglobulin isolate that contains beneficial growth factors, immune-regulating cytokines as well as other immuno-proteins. These proteins, or antibodies, are naturally produced by the immune system.* Think of it this way… Immunolin® provides the immune system with more of its own natural resources to defend itself.
Last but not least in this complex is a very unique ingredient called Humanofort™. Humanofort™ is a proprietary embryonic peptide matrix yielding naturally occurring IGF-1, IGF-2, FGF (Fibroblast Growth Factors), NGF (Nerve Growth Factors), EGF (Epidermal Growth Factors) and CTGF (Connective Tissue Growth Factor). Humanofort is a native oligopeptide extract containing naturally occurring growth factors .These oligopeptides (essential amino and short amino acid chains) assist the body in normalizing numerous cellular processes by activating important cellular receptors. When this occurs, healing is accelerated and a variety of cellular processes are stabilized. Humanofort™ may help the body support natural testosterone levels, boost endocrine function, promote adrenal hormone health, decrease recovery time and promote deep sleep.* This single ingredient so clearly touches on several of the core intents behind the Animal PM formulation.
All in all, Animal PM is the most complete sleep product on the market, and the only one tailored specifically to the unique needs of balls-to-the-wall training bodybuilders. It's not a relaxation product. It's not an anti-catabolic supplement. It's not a GH booster. It's not an immune support supplement. It's not a recovery product.
