DBR Ingredient Summary:
Creapure® Creatine Monohydrate
Qualilty, purity and safety with Creapure®
- Creapure® is the brand name for pure creatine monohydrate exclusively produced by AlzChem Trosberg GMbH in Germany.
Creapure is the most widely studied form of creatine and is proven to be safe and effective. The production of Creapure® is IFS FOOD certified, a quality standard recognized by the “Global Food Safe Initiative.”
Creatine – the body’s own dietary supplement
Creatine, which occurs naturally in the body, plays a crucial role in the body’s energy metabolism. If energy is needed, ATP (adenosine triphosphate = energy currency of the cell) is converted to ADP (adenosine diphosphate). Eventually, the body turns ADP back into ATP using energy derived from food, but this takes time, and muscle cells can store only enough ATP to allow a few seconds of high-intensity work. Therefore, creatine supplementation is substantial to ensure high levels of phosphocreatine.
Everybody needs creatine every day
Adults have around 80 – 130 grams of creatine in their bodies. Every day about 1-2% of this creatine is broken down and excreted, so it has to be replenished. The human body naturally produces some creatine. Intake of significant amounts of creatine from food is possible by eating meat and meat products. However, cooking and food preparation can result in creatine loss in food. Given your daily requirement of creatine, consumption of meat and synthesis of creatine by your own body may only provide maintenance levels of creatine. The body’s need for creatine to maximize your creatine levels may be significantly greater and that is why a Creapure® creatine supplement may be right for you.†
Creatine isn’t just for bodybuilders and fitness athletes. It is the perfect supplement for all sports that require bursts of maximum power – such as soccer, basketball, football, baseball, hockey, swimming, track and field, and many more. To consistently perform at your highest level, you need a sufficient amount of creatine in your body.†
As we age, we can also benefit from taking Creapure® creatine. In combination with moderate resistance training, Creapure® helps to stop the age-related loss of muscle mass, strength and improves mental activity.†
Did you know several scientific studies indicate that creatine has even more beneficial effects, which have been shown in the following categories: brain function, sleep (better quality of sleep and decreased sleep demand), antioxidative property, bone health.†

Plant-Fermented Amino Acids
VitalBody researches each and every ingredient for safety, bioavailability and efficacy. Our carefully chosen plant-fermented essential amino acid blend of Leucine, Iso-leucine, Valine, Phenylalanine, Methionine, Lysine, Threonine, Histidine, Tryptophan and Glutamine are a perfect example of our dedication to quality and transparency
Many manufacturers derive their amino acids from the chemical extraction of hair, fur and duck feathers, or by utilizing harsh chemicals.
In stark contrast, the essential plant-fermented blend utilized in the DBR Define Build Repair come from the natural enzymatic fermentation of plants, providing a cleaner, plant-based and sustainable alternative.

Our Unique Amino Acid Ratio and Plant-Fermentation Process Results in Muscle Protein Synthesis Equivalent to 20 grams of Whey Protein
Define Build Repair provides 3 grams of a unique plant-based amino acid blend – MP9 from Ajinomoto, in every serving.
Studies have shown that 3 grams of MP9 stimulates muscle protein synthesis equivalent to that of 20 grams of Whey Protein.

Albion® Magnesium Glycyl Glutamine Chelate (MGG)(from Albion Laboratories)
In the January 1997 issue of Albion Research Notes (Vol.6, No. 1), the role of magnesium in energy production was reviewed. Magnesium is involved in virtually every energy system of the human body. It is literally the cornerstone of energy metabolism.
‘Albion’s MGG chelate binds magnesium to both glycine and glutamine, enhancing molecule stability and nutritional functionality. Glutamine is the most abundant free amino acid in the body and helps support optimal recovery when the body undergoes physical stresses and challenges.’ www.nutraceuticalbusinessreview.com/news/article_page/Albion
Ashmead, H.D.W.. (2009). The role of magnesium glycyl-glutamine chelate in muscle regeneration. Revista Brasileira de Medicina. 66. 81-86.
- Strenuous physical activity triggers a series of metabolic reactions that can lead to muscle catabolism in order to produce energy.
- Glutamine is an amino acid with anabolic functions, and there is a direct correlation between the rate of protein synthesis and the concentration of extra-muscular glutamine.
- Magnesium is a mineral involved in various metabolic processes, including activation of enzymes that are necessary for muscle contraction and protein synthesis. These two nutrients are interdependent and essential for increasing muscle mass.
- Magnesium glycyl-glutamine chelate provides magnesium and glutamine in a single and stable molecule. Studies show that this compound has high bioavailability and is able to promote muscle anabolism in levels comparable to the anabolic steroid testosterone, with the advantage of not producing side effects.†
Nitrosigine® Inositol Stabilized Bonded Arginine Silicate – Nitrosigine® is a patented complex of bonded arginine silicate with FDA New Dietary Ingredient notification status. It is scientifically engineered to provide the benefits of both arginine and silicon.
Clinical studies show:
- Nitrosigine® has been clinically shown to significantly boost nitric oxide levels, a key factor in increasing blood flow to maximize muscle repair and growth.
- Nitrosigine® has been engineered to take effect in just 30 minutes with benefits lasting up to 3 hours after a single dose.
- Nitrosigine® pre-clinical data demonstrates superiority over Arginine HCl in blood flow markers, with added benefits of silicon absorption. Blood flow was 4x greater than Control and blood vessel relaxation was almost 5x greater than Arginine HCl.
- With continued use of Nitrosigine®, nitric oxide levels build over time.

Albion® Amino Acid Chelated Zinc, Copper and Manganese
Backed by sound science and over 100 patents, Albion is a trusted source for safe, proven, highly bioavailable, organic minerals.
Mineral chelation is a scientific term referring to a very specific molecular reaction that happens between a molecule and a nutritional mineral. Chelation is a natural process that takes place in the gut to facilitate transportation of nutritional minerals across the intestinal wall as a part of digestion. As our body is not very efficient at producing chelated minerals, we look to these mineral forms in nutritional supplements to assure greater efficiencies of absorption.
Albion creates these chelated minerals under very carefully controlled conditions. Albion’s most commonly used molecule to create organic chelated nutritional minerals is glycine. Glycine is an amino acid the body readily identifies and is efficiently absorbed across the intestinal wall. Albion’s glycine amino acid chelates are actually small enough to be transported right into the cell itself.
A vital workout mineral as it is involved in more than 100 enzymatic processes in the body and is a direct constituent of more than 25 enzymes involved in digestion and metabolism. Albion® Amino Acid chelated Zinc is chelated to glycine amino acid molecules for a higher percentage of highly bioavailable organic mineral and may provide a synergistic combination of mineral and glycine, two key nutrients utilized in the building of muscle tissue.
Did you know that the human body is made up of 30 trillion human cells? The human body also supports a thriving environment of over 39 trillion bacterial cells, referred to as our ‘microbiome.’ According to the Microbiome Institute, the human microbiome is deﬁned as the “assemblage of microbes that live in the human body.” Numerous studies have found that our unique microbiome is integral to our overall health. In fact, researchers have discovered that the microbiome can support exercise performance. Recent studies have shown probiotic supplementation may improve endurance, recovery and immunity in athletes.†
VitalBody’s DBR provides 15 strains of microbiome supporting probiotics and the prebiotics necessary for optimum growth.
