CVOL™ fits your workout. It’s absolutely delicious, 100% sugar-free with next to no carbs. Want to build your gains faster than you ever thought possible?
- Creatine-Magnesium Chelate: Patented, ionically-bound and highly-stable.
- Creatine Monohydrate: The most studied, most proven of all forms of Creatine.
- Creatine HCl: Over 50x more soluble than typical Creatine.
- Creatine Base: The purest of all forms of Creatine – Also known as Free-Form Creatine it delivers the most Creatine gram for gram.
THE CREATINE ABSORPTION COMPLEX*
- The Creatine Absorption Complex in CVOL has a specific effect on the threshold of cellular nutrient uptake; simply stated, it makes it easier.
- Creatine has a well-known cellular absorption issue.
- While Creatine does not have an issue getting into the blood stream when taken orally, it can have an issue with the absorption into the cells.
- CVOL™ has been built with these 3 best-of-breed mimetics to ensure that Creatine absorption is at optimal levels.*

1.What is CVOL?
CVOL™ is a delicious, convenient and highly effective Post-Workout drink for increasing muscle repair and recovery.
2. How does CVOL work?
The unique CVOL™ formulation taps into the specific mechanism of action that addresses the most critical time for supplementation; right after you train. Creatine saturates muscle with a highly energetic bond that increases muscular explosiveness. Beta-Alanine increases your ability to move heavier weights longer by improving your muscles ability to tolerate fatigue.
L-Carnitine L-Tartrate acts as a shield that protects your muscles from cellular damage during intense training providing up to a 40% reduction in muscle damage. Taurine improves lean body mass, provides energy and increases muscle volume. Betaine has shown to improve the performance of study participants’ squats in as little as two weeks.
CVOL™ adds a critical blend that increases muscle cell nutrient uptake. Normally, this activation takes place in the presence of large amounts of sugar. But by leveraging the power of these three extracts, CVOL™ increases the Creatine uptake by the muscle cells.
This step is most often overlooked and can dramatically reduce the level of Creatine actually stored in your muscles. Without this muscle cell uptake the body must remove the excess Creatine in the bloodstream through the kidneys.
3.What is Creatine-Magnesium Chelate (CMC)?
Creatine-Magnesium Chelate (CMC) is exceptional in that it is a superior chelated molecule. Chelation is the ionic binding of a ligand (Creatine) and an ion substrate (Magnesium). This bonded structure acts to more effectively deliver Creatine by leveraging magnesium and to protect the Creatine by stabilizing it. On its own, with no ionic bond, Creatine is susceptible to rapid breakdown.
CMC is very resistant to “gut cyclization”, or more simply, the Creatine destined for your muscles is not broken down in the highly acidic environment of your stomach. The Magnesium is an essential element that the body needs and recognizes. Binding the Creatine to the Magnesium helps to improve the transport across the gut and into the blood stream.
As an additional, and extremely important benefit, CMC provides an extremely bioavailable source of Magnesium, 1 serving of CVOL™ provides 40% of your recommended daily intake! The typical diet does not contain nearly enough dark leafy greens to provide adequate Magnesium (Mg), in fact studies show that 68% of Americans do not even get their recommended daily intake!
The US Dept. of Agriculture suggested in a 2008 paper that general lack of energy was likely due to low Mg. Athletes are specifically vulnerable as a good deal of Mg is lost through sweat.
Mg provides dramatic performance improvements to athletes who were previously low or deficient in Mg. Mg plays a role in over 300 processes in your body! Look at other products that contain this amazing ingredient. Typically you’ll find that they do not disclose how much Creatine-Magnesium Chelate (CMC) is in their formula because it’s hidden from you in a proprietary blend and you’ll typically see it at the end of that blend.
Don’t be fooled by “label dressing”. If you see it at the end of a blend, there is almost no limit to how small the inclusion of CMC is. Why? It’s roughly 5x the cost of regular Creatine!!!
With CVOL™ we decided that you deserve to know how much you are getting. Our Clean Label policy means we show exactly how much of each Creatine you are getting in CVOL™, take a look and you’ll see that CMC is at the highest inclusion of the blend. ALLMAX is a registered Gold Medallion partner of Albion Minerals; they are the premiere supplier of certified truly chelated minerals. They have a patented 6-stage chelation process that ensures the molecule that they deliver has a strong ionic bond
4. How do I take CVOL?
There are two specific times when your muscle cells are most receptive to absorbing nutrients like Creatine. First thing in the morning and immediately post-workout. Take 1 serving (12.5 g) with 8 to 10 oz of cold water (you can add ice) after your Workout. Or, on non-workout days, take CVOL™ first thing in the morning.
5. Should I do a loading phase with CVOL?
While a loading phase is not a requirement for CVOL™ to work, you can load for a 2 week period. Loading with Creatine takes advantage of your body’s physiology. As you consume a nutrient like Creatine, your body will have the greatest receptiveness when you first start. This is why users of Creatine typically see the most gains when they first start taking it.
By doubling the dosage at the beginning, you increase the likelihood of getting to a point of muscle cell Creatine saturation quickly before the body naturally reduces the rate that it absorbs the Creatine.
A typical loading cycle would be, 2 weeks at 2 Servings per day followed by 4 weeks at 1 Serving per day then 2 weeks of washout. The final two weeks is designed to allow your body to return to allowing Creatine to be absorbed at maximum levels again.
6. Should I use CVOL™ on days that I’m not training?
Yes, CVOL™ has a cumulative effect and should be taken in the AM on non-training days.
7. Can I stack CVOL™ with other ALLMAX supplements?
Absolutely! Many of our Team ALLMAX IFBB professionals consume CVOL™ with HVOL™, CARBION™ and MUSCLEPRIME®.
