If you often work out with weights you know that muscle fibers are damaged and after a workout, the body begins to repair and replace the damage through a cellular process. This process fuses the muscle fibers to form new muscle strands also known as muscle protein strands or myofibrils which is how mass is achieved. Muscle building happens when the rate of muscle protein is greater than muscle protein breakdown an if you do not have adequate nutrition or rest, you will be defeating the entire workout process and will not see the results that you are working so hard for.
If you are into body building then you most likely know that muscle is built after the workout. Training breaks the muscles down and it is only after your workout that your muscles repair themselves. It is therefore in that process where the muscles become bigger and thicker and having the proper nutrients in your system will maximize these results.
Most people don’t know that 3% of the US adult population of 2014 – equating to about 5.1 million adults were underweight. Where most people struggle to lose weight due to obesity, a lot of people also struggle to gain weight and muscle mass and this is a big problem for people trying to build muscles or lean muscle mass. That’s exactly why the AdvoCare Performance Elite products were created and are used by so many professional athletes.
What are the Main AdvoCare Performance Elite Products?
In general there are twelve products that you will want to work with. It is important to point out that it is not required to have all of them at the same time, mind you. You only need a certain group depending on the type of workout routine you are following.
To get a better look at what’s in store, here’s a guide to the three workout sessions recommended by AdvoCare, the company that produces these products:
1. The Fitness Routine – this routine is for people conducting cardio workouts, low-intensity lifting, or for a fitness class involving a wide range of people. For this type of workout session you will need:
O2 Gold (1 hour before workout) – this supplement has ingredients that work in combination to help you get the most from your activities by optimizing the body’s use of oxygen and boosts your immune system with its antioxidants.
Bio Charge (During workout) – this is an energy booster but its main benefit is that it carries all those vitamins and minerals without caffeine, ensuring you’re active but not in risk of high blood pressure or the eventual “caffeine crash”
Muscle Gain (after workout) – this protein blend ensures that your muscles get the most out of the recent workout, building lean muscle mass
Nighttime Recovery (before sleeping) – this is one of the most important products because it focuses on proper muscle and body repair while you sleep. This eliminates the sores and aches after a heavy day working out
Pro 20 (ongoing) – ongoing products have to be taken between meals. Pro 20 must be taken to promote body agility, lean muscle mass, and muscle endurance
2. The Endurance Routine – this routine is for building endurance, allowing you to work out longer and harder for better results. This is for endurance-centered cardio sessions.
O2 Gold (1 hour before workout)
VO2 Prime (1 hour before workout) – this is a stamina bar (soy-based) and is made to help supply oxygen to the muscles as well as promote better cardiovascular health
Arginine Extreme (30 minutes before workout) – this is one of the pioneering supplements for better heart and lung health
Bio Charge (During workout)
Rehydrate Gel (During workout) – this is an electrolyte-replacement gel which hydrates the body, keeping you energized and stabilizes your metabolism to burn more calories
Post-Workout Recovery (after workout) – this is to be taken right after your workout and is to help muscle recovery, ensuring your muscles grow and strengthen without tears or other permanent and painful damages
Nighttime Recovery (before sleeping)
Muscle Gain (ongoing)
Pro 20 (ongoing)
3. The Power Routine – this routine is for people really pushing the limits with high-intensity strength workouts, conditioning, and heavy lifting.
VO2 Prime (1 hour before workout)
Muscle Strength (1 hour before workout) – this supplement works on muscle recovery and muscle endurance, ensuring your muscles can work out harder and longer
Muscle Fuel (30 minutes before workout) – a fruit punch blend, this supplement carries all of the essential vitamins and minerals
Mass Impact (30 minutes before workout) – for anyone experiencing difficulty to gain muscle mass, either due to age or a lean body type, this is the supplement you’ll need because of its rich amino acids that promote muscle growth
Bio Charge (during workout)
Post-Workout Recovery (after workout)
Nighttime Recovery (before sleeping)
Muscle Gain (ongoing)
Pro 20 (ongoing)

If you have picked the right workout package for your needs and wants you’ll want to know how much it all costs. For non-members you may pay from less than $150 to $300 depending on the routine and the products required but members always get a hefty discount on their purchases.

Phytonutrients can be defined as nutrients that have been scientifically proven to provide health benefits. “Phyto” in Greek means plants, and phytonutrients fall into their own category because they are not related to fats, carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, or minerals. These nutrients allow for optimal cellular function and communication. When our cells are communicating effectively, the proper sequence of enzymatic reactions take place. This all leads to biochemical reactions creating healthier tissues and organ systems, detoxification of foreign substances, a strong immune system, and muscles that will perform when called upon.

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that, when consumed, can help restore your body’s natural balance and wellness of the gut microbiome. Some strains, such as the two present in Probiotic FastMelt™, support immune and digestive health.* Probiotic FastMelt™ provides these beneficial bacteria in a fast-melting, cooling and great tasting berry-flavored powder that you pour directly in your mouth.
- Convenient, fast-melting powder
- Supports a healthy immune system
- Promotes digestive health
Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health, especially your digestive system. We usually think of bacteria as something that causes diseases. But your body is full of bacteria, both good and bad. Probiotics are often called “good” or “helpful” bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy.
Probiotics are naturally found in your body. You can also find them in some foods and supplements.
It’s only been since about the mid-1990s that people have wanted to know more about probiotics and their health benefits. Doctors often suggest them to help with digestive problems. And because of their newfound fame, you can find them in everything from yogurt to chocolate.
Probiotics help move food through your gut. Researchers are still trying to figure out which are best for certain health problems. Some common conditions they treat are:
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
- Infectious diarrhea (caused by viruses, bacteria, or parasites)
- Antibiotic-related diarrhea
There is also some research to show they help with problems in other parts of your body. For example, some people say they have helped with:
- Skin conditions, like eczema
- Urinary and vaginal health
- Preventing allergies and colds
- Oral health

Before AdvoCare I weighed 180 pounds and was a size 14. I was a busy 36 year-old mother of three, helping my husband with his business. I didn’t feel good about myself, but I didn’t have time to do anything about it.
Then one day I was talking to AdvoCare distributor Betty Ryan at our children’s preschool. I told her that I was tired all the time and would love to have more energy. She gave me a sample of AdvoCare Spark® but I didn’t try it right away. A few weeks later on a sleepy afternoon, I took my first Spark and it did the trick.
I contacted Betty and asked about the weight-loss products. She recommended that I start with MNS® Max C and Meal Replacement Shakes. I was skeptical because I had tried to lose weight all my life and nothing worked, but I took Daphne’s word for it and lost 15 pounds!
I looked better, felt better and realized that AdvoCare was for real. But even after achieving these results, I still wasn’t committed. I stopped taking the products and got back in my rut of feeling bad about myself. In August 2007, I was fed up with my size and decided to get serious. I started taking AdvoCare products again and I saw results.
Ten months later, I had lost 60 pounds. I’m now thrilled to be my dream size of 2/4 – a size that people told me I could never be!
Like many people, I’m a snacker and eat when I get bored or stressed. MNS Max C helps take away those cravings. I now walk every morning and take Catalyst™ before I go. I take ThermoPlus™ before meals and drink my Meal Replacement Shakes at lunch. I take Spark when I need an extra boost. I’ve gone through some difficult times in my life and the AdvoCare products help keep my energy up when I feel down.
Whether you’re looking to lose weight, build a business or just feel better, you’ll win when you get on AdvoCare, get serious and consistent, and get results!
