Who we are
Universal Nutrition has been providing cutting edge and staple nutritional supplements to bodybuilders and hard training athletes the world over since 1977. As time passes, certain ideals never go out of style. Honesty. Integrity. Respect. These are the values we uphold and are the bedrock upon which we built our business.
What it is
Regarding nutrition, one thing is perfectly clear: study after study reveals that strength athletes need two things: (1) carbs to fuel intense, anaerobic workouts and (2) protein to build new muscle. The perfect growth food needs to satisfy these two basic requirements. Lava contains a sophisticated yet precise: 1:1 ratio of the highest-quality carbs and proteins available. For starters, Lava has 32 g of super-premium whey per serving. Better quality protein means better results. We're talking the freshest ultra and micro-filtrated whey protein concentrate containing valuable microfractions. Protein is needed after exercise to kick start protein synthesis and rebuild damaged muscles. To that we've added our GlycoCarb Complex which utilizes medium to high glycemic-index (GI) carbs. The high-end GI carbs ensure maximum creatine and protein uptake. The medium-end GI carbs provide long lasting energy. But we didn't leave well enough alone. We've also spiked Lava with 5.5 grams of the purest creatine in the world. Now throw in a scientifically-balanced matrix composed of important amino acids like glutamine and taurine, key mineral, electrolyte and phosphate co-factors such as chromium, magnesium, sodium, potassium and phosphorous and the specialized antioxidant vitamin C and you get the most advanced nutrition formula for helping fuel muscle growth. It's that simple. For explosive gains, nothing compares to Lava.
How we back it up
What is on the label is in the bottle and what is in the bottle will help you reach your goals.
There are many supplement companies out there. Who do you trust? Most of the companies are marketing-only companies who rely on "contract manufacturer's" to make their products. At Universal Nutrition, we are a GMP manufacturer. We don't just market our products, we make them too. We also stand behind every product we make with the best guarantee in the industry. This is our way of standing behind every product we sell. So whether you buy an Animal or Universal product, you can have all the confidence you need to make the right choices.
For maximum benefit, take one serving of Lava immediately after training.

I've began going to the gym for a week before I got this post-workout supplement, so I know the feeling of waking up in the morning feeling all sore and stuff from yesterday's training (I train in the afternoon-evening timeframe). From the first day of using this, the sore feeling is gone. I feel like I recover much faster, and I can feel the gains but not much. Comparing it with the more recent product "Torrent", people say that Torrent is a more up-to-date formula but LAVA still covers the basics. Well, I can say that what they say are true, this still works. I'll be trying Torrent once I empty this one to test it too.
