Leading Sports Supplements
As far as fat loss stacks go, this is my favourite. OxyShred with Acetyl L-Carnitine before workouts to boost energy, fat burning and mental focus and IsoPept Zero with Creatine after workouts for recovery and to maintain muscle mass during a cut. All of these are staples for everyone.
The greatest post workout protein you could ask for, IsoPept Zero. It's super fast-digesting and contains almost zero carbs or fats whilst tasting amazing! (Cookies n Cream is my favourite). I take OxyShred for fat loss to suppress my appetite and give me energy as well as during a muscle gain phase for a clean energy and focus preworkout. I'm guilty of sipping on this daily however. (All of them taste amazing but passionfruit is my number 1).
Mix 1 scoop of IsoPept® Zero with 6-8 ounces of chilled water or non-fat milk in a shaker bottle. Adjust liquid level to suit your taste and level of flavor intensity. Consume within 10 minutes post-workout as a fast absorbing protein source, or anytime of the day as your dietary needs require.
For optimum results take twice daily - Mix 1 scoop with 10 ounces (295 ml) of chilled water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, and on training days, consume 15 minutes prior to exercise.
Avoid eating or consuming a protein shake within 20 minutes after consumption for maximum absorption.
Consume 5 grams of CREA-8 with 8 Ounces (240 ml) of water or mix with OxyWhey Lean Protein post workout. During loading phase (1 week), consume 10 grams of CREA-8 pre and post workout with 8 ounces (240 ml) water.
Mix 1-2 scoops with 10 Ounces (295 ml) of water, juice or beverage of your choice. Do not exceed 5 scoops per day. Acetyl L-Carnitine is 100% stack-safe and can ideally be added to OxyShred to maximize metabolic activity and fat loss.

CAN I ADD OXYSHRED TO MY ISOPEPT® ZERO SHAKE?
We recommend that you do not add OxyShred to your IsoPept® Zero shake. OxyShred is a thermogenic fat burner drink and has a fruity flavor profile. IsoPept® Zero is a protein shake and has more of a milkshake like appearance and texture, even when mixed only with water.
IS ISOPEPT® ZERO GLUTEN AND LACTOSE FREE?
IsoPept® Zero is gluten free. During the ultra filtration process, undesirable components and allergens of whey protein are removed - this includes lactose and fat. There may still be traces of lactose present in IsoPept® Zero and if you have lactose allergies, you should test your tolerance levels prior to consistently consuming IsoPept® Zero.
WHAT IS THE BEST ISOPEPT ZERO FLAVOR?
EHPlabs is renowned in the industry as having the best flavor scientists and formulators. All IsoPept® Zero flavors are delicious, and your choice will depend on your personal taste and flavor inclinations. What we know for sure is that when you’re drinking IsoPept® Zero, you’ll think you’re drinking a delicious, smooth milkshake. Our most popular flavors are; Vanilla Ice Cream, Cookies N Cream and Choc Peanut Butter.
SUMMARY - OXYSHRED AND FAT BURNING
In essence, you have 2 specific types of fat stores - subcutaneous fat, meaning it sits just below your skin; and visceral fat, which sits around your organs to protect them.
Within these fat stores, you have two different types of adipose (fat) tissue; brown and white fat - long story short, brown fat keeps you warm when you’re cold and white fat is the result of excess calories that are stored to be used as energy at a later time.
OxyShred targets your subcutaneous fat stores, leaving your visceral fat stores untouched as these are crucial for safety and health. By targeting your subcutaneous fat stores, OxyShred targets your white fat cells resulting in an increase in thermogenesis and lipolysis.
It does this by working with your mitochondria (core of muscle fibre cells) to help metabolize fat in your body, converting fat cells into energy.
The combination of ingredients also helps to slow down calorie absorption, lower insulin levels and kick start your metabolism for the day. Decreasing insulin levels allows your body to reduce fat storage and calorie absorption, and to curb those evil sugar cravings.
Finally, the stress hormone (and enemy of weight loss) Cortisol is kept under control by the natural boost in energy and immunity boosting ingredients, helping you to stay focused throughout the day.
WHAT SEPARATES OXYSHRED FROM THE OTHERS?
- Optimal dosage of ingredients that work in synergy (instead of huge doses of a single ingredient)
- Uses active sections of ingredient extracts
- Chromium for blood sugar balance
- Not over-caffeinated
- The purpose of a thermogenic is separate to a pre-workout...you don’t want to be sitting there so full of energy, sweating and getting jittery
IS EHPLABS OXYSHRED VEGAN?
While not certified vegan, OxyShred contains no animal-based ingredients. According to vegan certification regulations, none of the EHPlabs products are vegan as they are manufactured in a facility that also processes our whey protein.
IsoPept Zero, OxyWhey, Skin Tight and Skin Firming contain animal-based ingredients and are not vegan.
WILL I DEVELOP A TOLERANCE TOWARDS OXYSHRED?
OxyShred contains caffeine, and for products containing caffeine you should take a 1 week break after consuming the product for a consecutive 4 week period. With OxyShred, we recommend taking a 1 week break each time you finish a tub.
DO I NEED TO TAKE A BREAK FROM USING EHPLABS SUPPLEMENTS?
All EHPlabs products are researched, formulated and carefully manufactured to ensure that they deliver results.
Although there is no rule about when you should start and stop taking supplements, you need to listen to your body. If you feel like you need to take a break, then you should take a rest from using any nutritional supplement products for 3 consecutive days and drink plenty of water to flush out your system.
With OxyShred, we recommend taking a break each time you finish a tub.
WHAT EHPLABS PRODUCTS CAN I MIX TOGETHER WITH OXYSHRED FOR CARDIO?
As suggested in the Directions, Acetyl L-Carnitine is best taken with OxyShred to maximize the breakdown of fat cells.
If you're doing fasted (empty stomach) cardio, the ideal energy and metabolism booster and recovery cocktail is to mix 1 scoop of Beyond BCAA with 1 scoop of OxyShred and 2 scoops of Acetyl L-Carnitine with 20 oz (600ml) of chilled water.
It's fun experimenting with the delicious fruity flavor combinations.
WHAT IS THE BEST FLAVOR FOR OXYSHRED?
If you don't have a sweet tooth, pink grapefruit flavor is fantastic as it has a subtle fresh citrus flavor. Wild Melon and Kiwi Strawberry are well balanced and on the sweeter fruitier side, and Guava is a smooth natural tropical flavor.
Our newest flavors are Passionfruit and Mango, both of which have been very popular. All the OxyShred flavors are delicious, but it really depends on your taste preference.
CAN I USE OXYSHRED AS PRE-WORKOUT?
Yes! OxyShred will give you a natural boost of energy and put you in a positive and focused mindframe to conquer your workout. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned pre-workout consumer, you’ll love the natural positive effects of OxyShred during your workout.
CAN I STACK OXYSHRED WITH OTHER PRODUCTS?
Oxyshred can be stacked with Acetyl L-Carnitine to increase its already potent ultra thermogenic ability. OxyShred can also be stacked with our non-stimulant based pre-workout PSI.
PSI contains optimally dosed ingredients that have been extensively studied and proven to synergistically promote vasodilation, enhance nutrient and oxygen delivery to working muscle, and increase cell hydration for incredible pumps while also helping to improve mental focus.
Combining OxyShred and PSI pre-workout will give you the energy and focus you need to push through your workout while maximizing fat loss.
SWEETENERS IN OXYSHRED
OxyShred uses the sweetener Sucralose, as it's been FDA-approved for 20 years, and shown to be safe and stable. Sucralose has been extensively studied and more than 110 safety studies were reviewed by FDA in approving the use of sucralose as a general purpose sweetener for food.
The combination of L-Tyrosine, Taurine have been shown in EHPlabs studies to provide a mood enhancing effect due to their role with dopamine and antagonist effects on serotonin.
By also including Caffeine and L-Theanine, this helps to provide optimal central nervous system and adrenal gland stimulation to trigger a positive homeostatic energy release, which can also help improve cognitive ability.
WHY ARE THERE NO JITTERS?
Unlike some other thermogenics on the market, you shouldn’t get jitters from OxyShred if used as directed as it’s not over-caffeinated.
The R&D team at EHPlabs has focused on the optimal synergistic dose of ingredients within OxyShred to provide the best effect, so that they interact and complement each other, instead of pumping it full of stimulants - there is no need to add huge amounts of caffeine and other stimulants to make you itchy - this is the purpose of a pre-workout like RP Max.
The caffeine level in OxyShred is slightly higher than a strong cup of coffee.
FIGHTING THE CRAVINGS - MORE ON THIS AND WHY?
OxyShred helps to reduce cravings by a couple of different methods;
1) it helps to suppress your appetite and enhance your mood, which is a large contributor to cravings.
2) it helps to promote blood sugar balance by the addition of chromium which has an effect on regulation of insulin and blood glucose control. Chromium is lacking in most people’s diets, and chromium levels decrease with age - Chromium picolinate is the most efficacious form of chromium supplementation
3) It boosts your metabolism so that you have clean, long-lasting energy from your fat stores, which again helps to reduce cravings as you’re not low on energy
WHAT IS THE SCIENTIFIC ACTION FOR FAT MOBILISATION FUNCTION?
The scientific action behind fat mobilisation and fat utilisation is two-fold;
1) you have to activate the fat from storage
2) you have to then take it from storage and transport into the mitochondria to be burned off as energy.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY THERMOGENIC?
Thermogenic by definition just means to produce heat - however, in terms of a supplement this means increasing heat through an increased metabolic rate, which results in increased amount of fat burning.
By keeping your metabolism elevated for periods of time, this results in more production of heat, and therefore more burning of fat - this means you have more clean natural long-lasting energy from your body so that you have energy throughout the day, even while on a calorie-restricted diet.
WHEN’S THE BEST TIME TO TAKE CREA-8?
There is no scientific research that provides evidence for optimal creatine monohydrate consumption timing. However, it is important to ensure that you consistently consume
CREA-8 on a daily basis to ensure that your muscles are saturated with creatine monohydrate to promote cell volumization, muscle hydration and increased endurance.
WILL CREA-8 CAUSE WATER RETENTION?
The natural biological response by the body from consuming creatine monohydrate is to retain water in the muscle cells. Excessive water retention and bloating is a side effect of poor quality creatine monohydrate. CREA-8 is the best quality German grade creatine monohydrate and will not lead to excessive water retention. However, if you are competing in bodybuilding/fitness show or you want to remain extra dry in appearance (dehydrated), we recommend to hold off using CREA-8.
I HEARD THAT CREATINE IS A CHEMICAL - IS CREA-8 SAFE TO CONSUME?
Creatine monohydrate is a safe supplement that has been used in fitness and bodybuilding for decades. It is a combination of three different amino acids: glycine, arginine and methionine. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. Scientific studies suggest that creatine monohydrate increases fat free mass, anaerobic strength and power.
Aside from transporting free fatty acids, what else does Acetyl L-Carnitine do?
Acetyl L-Carnitine is well known for producing energy, improving brain performance, decreasing stress and depression, and slowing the effects of ageing related diseases including dementia.
What should I feel when I consume Acetyl L-Carnitine?
EHPlabs Acetyl L-Carnitine is pharmaceutical grade and contains no additional stimulants. You will not feel any major high stim effects, however, Acetyl L-Carnitine will work alongside your natural biological processes to utilize fat cells to increase energy (ATP) production and will lead to increased sweating during training. This indicates that your metabolism is speeding up and you’re burning more calories during your training.
What does it taste like?
Acetyl L-Carnitine has a slightly tart/sour taste, but it is subtle enough that you will barely notice the taste when you add it to OxyShred or Beyond BCAA.
