Believe it or not, Ryan’s first introduction into sports was on the soccer field. Playing soccer between the ages of 6-13 enabled Ryan to develop the necessary foot speed, quickness and endurance that would transfer directly over to the Gridiron. When Ryan entered high school, he hung up the shin guards and soccer cleats for a pair of shoulder pads and a helmet. As Ryan’s body matured coupled with hours spent in the weight room Ryan, combined with his agility from the soccer days he emerged as one of the counties top linebackers earning him a full scholarship to Appalachian State University. After gaining almost 20 lbs per year he was moved from linebacker to defensive tackle. While still maintaining linebacker speed and tipping the scales at 310 lbs. Ryan earned Team MVP, 1st Team All-Conference and 1st team All-American his senior year getting him signed as a free agent to the Tennessee Titans. After a short stint with the Titans Ryan stuck with the Atlanta Falcons until he was released due to severe neck trauma which resulted in a removal of a spinal tumor and a 5 disc fusion of his neck. After being forced to retire Ryan quickly found a way to feed his competitive juices by trading in his football helmet for a pair of posing trunks and found his new love in Bodybuilding. Ryan has started from the bottom and has now been competing at the National level for the past few years in hopes of earning his pro-card and being one of the only few professional athletes in 2 different sports.

WHAT IS KARBOLIC™?
Karbolic is the NEW advanced formula with faster results; The Next Generation Carbohydrate. It’s what the Pros use! Karbolic has been instantized, so there is no waiting for it to mix! Plain and simple, the best thing you can do before, during and after your workouts is drink high quality Karbolic. Karbolic is designed to get the carbs and nutrients through the stomach and into the muscle, where they belong!
- Contains Taurine and Betaine in clinically validated dosages shown to improve athletic performance in “real athletes”.
- Contains important B vitamin enzyme co-factors scientifically demonstrated to increase athletic performance, aid in post exercise recovery processes, assist with muscle cell glycogenesis and storage & ATP re-synthesis from ADP.
- Contains significant amounts of important electrolytes like Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorous, Potassium & Zinc required to maintain athletic performance, which are rapidly depleted and lost via sweat during intense exercise.
- Only formula infused with a patent pending Pterostilbene extract for a maximum nutrient uptake
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How many grams of carbs are found in Karbolic?
There are 50 grams of 4 different high quality starches in each scoop of Karbolic.
Can Karbolic be used with protein?
Absolutely, we make a Chocolate and Unflavored that mix well with most protein powders.
When should Karbolic be consumed?
Karbolic can be taken before, during or after any workout.
Does Karbolic contain anything else besides starches/carbs?
Yes Karbolic also contains a patented extract called PteroPro which consists of different extracts from various fruits that assist the body in nutrient uptake(Absorption). Also Karbolic contains B-Vitamins and electrolytes for all endurance athletes to use.
How is Karbolic different than Karbolyn?
Karbolic contains 4 different starches compared to Karbolyn which is comprised of 3. Karbolic also contains PteroPro, B Vitamins and Electroyltes in which Karbolyn does not. Karbolyn contains its own special patented “Milling” process and those who have used Karbolyn for years still use nothing else. Our original founder, Art Atwood, created Karbolyn and this is the product he was most known for.
Prior To Exercise: Consume 1/2 serving of Karbolic™ with 16 oz. (473mL) of cold water. Consume 45 minutes before exercise.
Immediately Following Exercise: Consume 1 serving of Karbolic™ to replenish glycogen levels and drastically enhance recovery. If you prefer, you can mix 1 serving of Karbolic™ with your favorite protein powder for an ideal meal replacement shake.

Why Do I Need a Carb Drink?
Understanding why someone would take a carb drink in the first place helps you understand why CARBION+ is vastly superior.
Carbohydrates are the most effective and readily available workout fuel you can take.
Properly supplemented, they provide a highly stable and reliable energy source for optimal performance – shifting to fat metabolism and protein breakdown via gluconeogenesis is dramatically less effective and reduced performance is the result.
Supplementing with carbs is one of the best ways to prevent cortisol levels from rising and subsequently, catabolic muscle tissue breakdown from taking place.
Recovery from intense training and replenishment of glycogen stores.
CARBION+, A Better Way to Power Your Workouts
What CARBION+ has done is to select a broad range of extremely complex and increasingly less complex engineered carbohydrates to provide a combination of absorption rates that deliver reliable, sustained energy.
CARBION+ DELIVERS A RELIABLE, SUSTAINED ENERGY SOURCE TO POWER YOU THROUGH THE TOUGHEST TRAINING.
Starting at the high end, AWM2300™ Waxy Maize is highly-branched and extremely complex and comes in at 200,000 g/mol, next in order of complexity is the Rice and Potato starch, while lower in inclusion rates, they are also very high on the molecular weight scale, and range between 80,000 and 120,000 g/mol, CCD™: Clustered Cyclic Dextrin is derived from Waxy Maize (Amylopectin) and has a molecular weight of60,000 g/mol and finally, DE-5™: Dextrin is the least complex coming in at 45,000g/mol; all far larger and more complex than the monosaccharides Glucose, Dextrose or Fructose which is 180 g/mol.
So, what does all this mean?
The goal of any supplement is to have an effect. In order to have an effect the nutrient (protein, creatine, aminos, carbs etc.) must find its way into the cell; getting into the cell means getting past the gatekeeper, the insulin receptor. The obvious way is to allow insulin to do its job. But higher levels of insulin come at a price. It requires higher levels of blood sugar. The Advanced Carb Utilization Complex within CARBION+ has ingredients that effectively reduce the level at which these nutrient gatekeepers “turn on” and actively take nutrients in.
CARBION+ provides a range of carbohydrate complexity from extremely large, highly branched and complex carb to a simpler complex carb such as DE-5™, an engineered carb with 87% of the polysaccharide lengths of (10) decasaccharide and larger. It also provides 3.2 g of Fibersol-2™, another highly engineered carb that mimics the fiber effect of oats and provides beneficial actions like improved regularity, reduced blood sugar and shuttles triglycerides out of the body.
With its very low osmotic pressure gradient (matches human osmotic pressure between 280 and 300) and high levels of electrolytes, CARBION+ empties rapidly from the stomach, thereby facilitating efficient, sustained uptake and preventing bloating, cramping and indigestion that can occur with simpler carb drinks containing glucose or other sugars, especially when training hard.
More to the point, like consuming oats, CARBION+ has the effect of delivering caloric energy in a manner your body can cope with more easily, eliminating dramatic insulin spikes and sustaining energy delivery. This sustained energy provides a steady supply to working muscles, spares muscle glycogen depletion, staves off muscle catabolism and fuels recovery.
The addition of the electrolytes takes advantage of the delivery channels that share a common membrane with carbohydrate absorption. The Advanced Carb Utilization Complex further facilitates the uptake of the blood sugar by reducing the threshold of the activation of insulin receptors; simply stated, your body will be more efficient at uptake into cells of nutrients while requiring less insulin.
CARBION+: Does it work?
Yeah, yeah, yeah, science, polysaccharide blah, blah, blah, BUT DOES IT WORK in the gym?! We’ve all heard the stories about the theory of why this or that should work, but does the rubber meet the road? The answer is yes.
We have found what we believe to be the absolute best combination of carbohydrates, electrolytes, and insulogenics to provide a highly efficient and consistent energy supply. The mechanism and action of this supply provides truly superior training in many respects.
- Elevated performance intensity and duration result in greater muscle stimulation.
- Increases in blood plasma volume and muscle glycogen provide a profound pump within every training session helping to stretch muscle fiber and fascia.
- The carbohydrate effect of blunting the rise in cortisol levels common to intense training results in a dramatic reduction in muscle tissue breakdown.
After a year in production and testing, test subjects reported dramatically superior workouts, improved recovery and ability to get back into the gym faster than normal. Reports have been coming in with exceptional muscle fullness, great vascularity and stunning pumps.
The ability to remain in the gym training hard for far longer has been one of the most common reports. This really underscores the value of having such a well delivered high-quality source of carbohydrates with efficient delivery; you are effectively fuelled for a greater duration.
This brings a level of intensity to training that simply did not exist before. Being able to maintain a level of intensity at a far greater duration brings results. Train with it once, you will feel the difference the first time. You will not want to train without it again.
