The origin of this product dates all the way back to the 90's. At a very young age, I was mentored by a brilliant man, and I don't use the word brilliant loosely. This mentor happened to be a bodybuilder who was also pioneering a customized degree program from UConn based around Exercise Science and Chemistry. This gentlemen was the first to preach the importance of the Anabolic Window to me. It is at times argued, but universally understood, that within 60 minutes post-workout, your body becomes a nutritional black hole. Your body is ready to suck up everything like a sponge. While training hard, you burn up all of your glycogen and stored nutrients, and afterwards your blood sugar is low, leaving your body starving for nutrient-rich recovery.
I have dedicated my body to science for years, data collecting, and trying every possible post-workout concoction under the sun because of this theory. I have tried all sorts of carb sources from grape juice, to sports drinks, to pure dextrose, and more recently, highly-branched cyclic dextrin. I have tried every single amino acid product known to man in every single dose possible. After 19 years of trial and error, I came up with a formula that kept my pumps for hours and accelerated my recovery, as well as dramatically reducing soreness. This concoction consisted of 5 key elements that I was buying separately and mixing together. I began passing my findings on to hundreds of clients who were either speechless, or overjoyed at what was happening to their bodies. I had what I called "The ultimate post-workout concoction" and I was always excited to share it. I had this figured out when I first started Blackstone Labs, but it wasn't until 3 years later where a fan, who had gotten some advice from me on periscope, reached out to me via email to tell me "Thank you so much, this concoction has been amazing! When will Blackstone Labs be putting this out?"EUREKA! How could I not put this out? In an industry selling where products with crazy one-word, action-packed names is the norm, I decided to just name the product after the amount of time it took me to discover it... It literally took me 19 years to find this perfect recipe for success and the name has to mean something to me. So to keep it simple, I give you: Formula 19.
