Here is a little info about the Animal Pak, taken from Animalpak.com:

"You’re no couch potato. You’re definitely not casual about training. You are a bodybuilder, a powerlifter. You are serious and committed. That’s why you’re here. Well your nutrition should reflect your lifestyle. Hardcore training requires hardcore supplementation. And Animal Pak is as hardcore as it gets.

In weight training there are the basics, the tried and true exercises that have produced results forever: the squat, the deadlift, the bench press. The fundamentals. The same goes for the weight trainer’s nutrition program. Ample macronutrients are crucial: lean protein, complex carbs and healthy fats. This same basic approach applies to supplements. Ya gotta have your protein powder and your multivitamin. The multi is so essential, that it’s hard to even call it a supplement. Sure, the mutli isn't glamorous or hyped. It's solid, it's steady, and it's absolutely vital for serious lifters.

This nutritional staple comes in many forms. You see them everywhere. But none of them are designed to specifically address the special needs of the intense strength athlete. None, that is, except the Animal Pak. Animal Pak has it all: vitamins, minerals, aminos (like BCAAs), antioxidants, electrolytes, performance optimizers, digestive enzymes and essential fats (EFAs). Yeah, it’s that complete. Think of the Pak as your foundational supplement—the one upon which to build your entire nutritional protocol. Like we said before, you aren’t some lazy son of a bitch, so why use his multivitamin? You are the elite… The dedicated. You are Animal. The one who pays his dues everyday. Your multivitamin should be formulated accordingly. You deserve that much…

When it comes to growing our muscles in a freakish way, Animal Pak provides the right combination and mega-doses of all the good stuff you need. These powerful pharmacological agents and catalysts can exert significant ergogenic/anabolic benefits and function as the spark plugs for activating all the necessary chemical reactions that make training and building muscle possible. Only Animal Pak has everything athletes need. Plus it’s so convenient that you can throw a pack right in your pocket and won’t have to worry about lugging a can around.

The Pak is best when taken on a daily basis because over time vitamin deficiencies can escalate. Especially when eating a restricted, redundant diet. Eventually, the body will stop functioning at its optimum level due to weakened immunity and diminished hormone production. In other words, your development plateaus. Our bodies are so sensitive that if even one key nutrient is missing from the diet, the body could shut down the anabolic drive needed to build muscle so that it can support more critical metabolic processes. When this happens, growth can stop. Plus, so often the optimal effectiveness of one supplement relies on the ideal internal environment, one nourished by the comprehensive formula of a multi as potent as the Animal Pak.

Many of today's supplements need the body to be nutrient dense to work efficiently. Nutritional gaps mean that your supplements may be rendered ineffective. For example, many muscle building products (e.g., nitric oxide boosters and testosterone boosters) rely on enzymes and other substrates in the body to "activate" them. This is especially the case when using Stak 2, Cuts or any of the other more specialized Animal performance packs. You can use the Stak 2 to boost test output, the Cuts to get ripped, Nitro to enhance recovery and anabolism. These are made even more effective when stacked on top of the Pak’s foundation. The bottom line is, poor nutrition means poor conversion and hindered activation of expensive anabolic nutrients. You can think of the Animal Pak as the insurance policy that will prevent nutritional deficiencies and the inefficient utilization of bodybuilding supplementation. Not bad for just having to take a single pack daily.

This leads us to the question of whether or not it is necessary to take 2 packs daily. This is probably one of the most common questions we get. Generally, one pack will do the job for most trainers. If you are taking one Pak, take it first thing in the morning with breakfast, when your muscles are starved for nutrients. Let’s say you use another pre-workout boosting supplement like the M-Stak or Cuts prior to the workout. No matter what time you train--you would take the M-Stak or Cuts prior to the workout. The Animal Pak on the other hand, being an essential nutrient pack, can actually be taken along with any of your large meals throughout the day--with your first meal or postworkout being the most ideal. Meals help in the absorption of the nutrients in the pack so always be sure to take the Pak along with food.

Back to the initial topic, if you are an elite bodybuilder or competitive strength athlete enduring the rigors of contest prep, bumping your intake up to 2 packs a day could make a big difference in your performance and recovery. If you are taking them twice daily try to space them out with 6-8 hrs. between packs allowing for maximal absorption. Your inclusion of the Animal Pak into your nutritional regimen and its profound effects should be obvious almost immediately.

Taking vitamins, minerals and potent muscle building nutrients also may have some innocuous side effects, such as bright yellow piss. When you notice that, there is no need to worry, everything is normal. You’re just pissing out some of the extra B vitamins. B vitamins are called the energy vitamins because they are required for the production of energy. They are growth vitamins, crucial to anabolism. So if you’re pissing them out, it means the Animal Pak is working and your nutritional tanks are full. In fact, we here call it Pak Piss. When we see it, we know all is well. When we don’t see it, we worry…

Hardcore training beats you up, ya gotta have your nutritional bases covered if you are gonna prosper in this arena. If you wanna get jacked… If you wanna be bigger, stronger, better… If you wanna be a freak, Animal Pak was made with you in mind. More energy, improved hormonal output, stronger immune function, optimal recovery, more efficient use of supplements—all in one little pack. Animal Pak is your nutritional insurance policy on the tough road to freakdom. Cuz remember, you ain’t no couch potato… So why use his multi?"

In all seriousness, I use a-paks and like them mainly for the convenience. I dont need all the bottles cluttering up my space. I used to have a freaking bag of bottles I took everywhere with me.

Yup, I can relate to the bag full of bottles scenario... I think all bodybuilders have been there. That is a major positive about the Pak and for that matter, all the products in the Animal line, they combine multiple vitamins, minerals, nutrients or supplements in general, into convenient single serving packs. When you are on the move, that kind of convenience can prove to be essential.

Question for anyone that can help.

For the past few months I have been taking the following pills:

One-a-day
flaxeed oil
fish oil
grape see extract
b-complex


I also just started taking Animal Pump today.

My question is, if I start taking Animal Pak, do I need to still take the 5 pills I normally take or can I did some, if not all of them?

Animal cuts - before breakfast
Animal pak - after breakfast
Animal pump - preworkout
Animal nitro - post workout (precardio for 30 minutes)
PWO shake
ZMA before bed

I have been on this stack for a little over a week and I love the animal products. I am cutting but still trying to add a some lean mass. So far my diet has been in check and my workouts are just as good as when I was on a bulk. Great products at a great price. I have never tried the animal products until now and they are great. Damn, I should have started a log

Animal is a line of bodybuilding "packs"--pills individually packaged in packs. In the Universal line, you can often find "equivalents"--such as Shock Therapy/Storm for Animal Pump, or EAA Stack for Animal Nitro.

Definitely take it with food. Food will help the absorption of the pak and the digestive enzyme complex in the pak will help digest the food.

Absolutely! Most ppl do that (as do I) b/c it is a daily multi and b/c many ppl take PUMP, Cuts or M-stak PREworkout.

Keep taking it after breakfast. As NG said, "Definitely take it with food. Food will help the absorption of the pak and the digestive enzyme complex in the pak will help digest the food."

All it is bro is the excess vitamins and minerals that your body didn't need at the time getting passed. I only get it on none training days usually. On days i train I don;t notice it. I attribute that to my body burning up most of what was in the Pak. It's normal and nothing to worry about. If you see it, that means you have your body saturated good with nutrients and your bases well covered.

the problem with pak (no disrespect) is that all the vitamins are minerals are in unabsorbable formats such as the sulphates and oxides form

e.g. zinc oxide...THE CHEAPEST AND LOWEST QUALITY form of supplemental zinc.

Maybe time for an update?

e.g. zinc oxide swapped for zinc pi****nate

If you ask me it is a hell of problem. And if you ask me again, it is the time for an update.

Add cyanocolabamin to your list of CHEAPEST AND LOWEST QUALITY substance form found in Animal Pak.

Is Universal Nutrition cGMP?

Animal Pak has gone through several updates over the years. If the company updated the forms of vitamins in the Pak I'd be all for it however the Pak has served me well over the years. I don't know if I'd see/feel a difference if they changed the forms of vitamins. I've read the research and am not sure how tangible the benefits would be. I've seen some other companies change their multi's but no one is reporting anything different from the previous forms. I am not saying there aren't benefits to other forms of vitamins I am just skeptical as to how much they would equate to actual results.

FYI.....Animal Pak has coenzyme B-12 in it also.

Yes we've been GMP for some time now.

Pak piss is due to the large amount of b-vitamins in the pak. you'll see simialar results when megadosing a regular b-vitamin supplement. this is why its recommended to take a pak before your workout to make full use of the b-vitamins, and let me tell you, it really does make a difference energy wise.

OK. I am now hearing from some that since the body adapts to certain supplements, it is a good idea to add variety to the vitamins one is taking. i.e. switch vitamins. This really makes no sense to me. Seems like vitamins are vitamins. Furthermore, it has been suggested to take a short break and stop taking them altogether for a time.

At any rate I thought I would try to get the perspective of this board. Any thoughts? Thanks!
