The Legendary Post-Workout


Is Stilll Top OF The Class

MHP has a history of bringing innovative products to market, and DARK MATTER® follows that tradition. A lot of people focus on pre-workouts to maximize the intensity of their workouts, but post-workout supplementation is actually more important. MHP led the industry from the get-go by developing an innovative post-workout supplement. While other companies were simply touting their protein or basic BCAA formulas for post-workout, MHP was among the first companies to look at the research and develop a full blown post-workout formula to optimize the critical anabolic window for building size. This is why for many elite athletes, every workout ends with DARK MATTER® – a fully comprehensive post-workout formula backed by research and science.


“Mistakenly, most people focus more on pre-workout supplementation than post workout,” explains Gerard Dente, CEO and founder of MHP. “Pre-workout supplementation is beneficial to help increase your output, but unless you refuel your body properly after your workout you won’t optimize muscle building and recovery. Taking in protein is good, but it’s not enough, and that’s why I formulated DARK MATTER®, as a fully comprehensive post-workout formula to create a very high anabolic environment and stimulate muscle growth and repair.”


The harder you train, the more important your post-workout is to get the best results from the gym – and DARK MATTER® has got you covered. DARK MATTER® contains a clinically tested 6-gram dose of essential amino acids (EAAs). This specific combination of all 9 essential amino acids was shown in a clinical study to boost protein synthesis by an incredible 360%. DARK MATTER® is the only post-workout that contains this clinically tested EAA blend in combination with other synergistic ingredients for optimal post-workout supplementation. Boosting protein synthesis post-workout is critical to trigger muscle building and recovery. As you lift weights, your muscles use up their glycogen stores for fuel. This results in your muscles being partially depleted of glycogen. Some of the proteins in your muscles also get broken down and damaged. After your workout, your body tries to rebuild its glycogen stores and repair and regrow those muscle proteins. Consuming the right nutrients in DARK MATTER® right after you train can help your body get this done faster. The synergistic delivery of essential amino acids, whey protein, carbohydrates and creatine in DARK MATTER® sparks a spike in protein synthesis, insulin and glycogen replenishment to trigger enhanced muscle growth and recovery. Providing your body with the right macronutrients and micronutrients, nutrient-partitioning agents, cell volumizers and just the right amount and blend of essential amino acids is just what you need to truly set the stage for the anabolic environment.

Post-workout carbs are also very important for glycogen replenishment and recovery and to create an anabolic environment – and DARK MATTER® contains 48 grams of carbohydrates from waxy maize, maltodextrin and dextrose. This carb combo is designed to spike insulin to maximize its anabolic effects and also replenish muscle glycogen. MHP uses black rice extract standardized for anthocyanidins to increase insulin sensitivity to make better utilization of the insulin spike. DARK MATTER® also contains creatine plus glycerol to replenish ATP stores and increase muscle cell volume.


Many athletes over the years have relied on DARK MATTER®, and not just MHP athletes. Many pro athletes in bodybuilding, powerlifting, football and strongman have been known to use DARK MATTER®, because they know it works. 


If you want to build serious muscle, in addition to training consistently and getting enough sleep and quality food, don’t neglect post-workout nutrition. And if you’re looking for the best in class, go with DARK MATTER® – a legendary product still going strong.
Before joining MHP, I heard many great things about their products, especially DARK MATTER®. In the powerlifting community DARK MATTER® is used by many of the top guys. Since I’ve been using DARK MATTER® over the past three years, I have seen an improvement in my recovery and better recovery equals bigger and stronger muscles. I highly recommend DARK MATTER.
