Description
BIOACTIVE POST-WORKOUT MUSCLE GROWTH & RECOVERY ACTIVATOR*

SECRET SAUCE is the world's first BIOACTIVE POST-WORKOUT FORMULA enhanced with pharmaceutical grade BSA (Bovine Serum Albumin) for potent anabolic action and fast recovery. BSA is a scientifically documented bioactive protein derived from bovine blood plasma. Researchers have identified BSA to have multiple biological factors that help influence muscle growth. Some of the biological factors and functional properties of BSA include its bioactive peptides and growth factors, high concentrations of leucine and essential muscle building amino acids, high osmolality and its ability to enhance the uptake and transport of nutrients such as creatine, amino acids and glucose into blood plasma and speed delivery to muscle tissue.*

While BSA is the central core to SECRET SAUCE's anabolic action, this unique muscle building formulation contains many other powerful clinically researched ingredients that help make SECRET SAUCE the most advanced post-workout formula on the market.*

The next important step to complete post-workout supplementation is to optimize the anabolic activity of insulin and replenish glycogen. SECRET SAUCE has taken insulin spiking and glycogen replenishment to an advanced level with the inclusion of the insulinotropic amino acids glycine and phenylalanine in combination with MuscleMeds proprietary iSPIKE Insulin-Release-Amplifying Reactive Carbohydrate System. These insulinotropic aminos work in tandem with the iSPIKE reactive carbohydrates and BSA plasma transport to activate a highly anabolic insulin surge and super fast muscle glycogen and ATP saturation. This dynamic trio also enhances the uptake of other key nutrients, peptides and growth factors in BSA to trigger the post-workout growth and repair of muscle tissue.*

If you train hard and want to get the most out of your workouts, SECRET SAUCE is your post-workout recipe for massive gains in muscle mass and super-fast recovery!*

Health Notes

Bitter Orange

Bitter Orange
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Indigestion, Heartburn, and Low Stomach Acidity
Dose: 3 cups of tea daily, prepared with 1 to 2 grams of dried peel
Bitter orange has traditionally been used as a digestive aid.(more)
Insomnia
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Bitter orange has a history of use as a calming agent and to counteract insomnia.(more)
Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Bitter orange contains synephrine, which might promote weight loss. (more)
Indigestion, Heartburn, and Low Stomach Acidity
Dose: 3 cups of tea daily, prepared with 1 to 2 grams of dried peel

Bitter herbs are thought to stimulate digestive function by increasing saliva production and promoting both stomach acid and digestive enzyme production.1 As a result, they are particularly used when there is low stomach acid but not in heartburn (where too much stomach acid could initially exacerbate the situation). These herbs literally taste bitter. Some examples of bitter herbs include greater celandine, wormwood, gentian,dandelion, blessed thistle, yarrow, devil's claw, bitter orange, bitter melon, juniper, andrographis, prickly ash, and centaury.2. Bitters are generally taken either by mixing 1-3 ml tincture into water and sipping slowly 10-30 minutes before eating, or by making tea, which is also sipped slowly before eating.

Very little published research is available on the traditional uses of bitter orange as a digestive aid and sedative. The German Commission E has approved the use of bitter orange for loss of appetite and dyspeptic ailments.3 One test tube study showed bitter orange to potently inhibit rotavirus (a cause of diarrhea in infants and young children).4 Bitter orange, in an herbal combination formula, reportedly normalized stool function and completely eased intestinal pain in 24 people with non-specific colitis and, again in an herbal combination formula, normalized stool function in another 32 people with constipation.5, 6

Insomnia
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Bitter orange has a history of use as a calming agent and to counteract insomnia. There is no clinical trial data to support its efficacy in this regard. The usual amount of tincture used is 2 to 3 ml at bedtime.1, 2

Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructionsAlthough historically used to stimulate appetite, bitter orange is frequently found in modern weight-loss formulas because synephrine is similar to the compound ephedrine, which is known to promote weight loss. In one study of 23 overweight adults, participants taking a daily intake of bitter orange (975 mg) combined with caffeine (525 mg) and St. John's wort (Hypericum perforatum, 900 mg) for six weeks lost significantly more body weight and fat than the control group.1 No adverse effects on heart rate or blood pressure were found. Bitter orange standardized to contain 4 to 6% synephrine had an anti-obesity effect in rats. However, the amount used to achieve this effect was accompanied by cardiovascular toxicity and mortality.2
