What Is Maxcatalyst™: What To Know About This Innovative Ingredient

With the launch of 11 innovative supplements in the Kaged Elite Series, we’ve introduced new ingredients to the marketplace.

In our quest to never stop evolving and always improve, we came across an ingredient that is the ultimate team player: MAXCatalyst. You’ll find this ingredient in Pre-Workout Elite, Pre-Workout Elite Stimulant Free, Creatine Monohydrate Elite, and Protein Isolate Elite.

In today’s article, we’ll tell you about this ingredient, what it has been shown to do, and why it’s in our new products that help you train harder, build muscle, and improve your performance.*

What is MAXCatalyst?

MAXCatalyst™ Piper nigrum Fruit Extract is a patented ingredient from black pepper extract.

Of course, you already know what black pepper is. It’s one of the most common spices in the world. However, this isn’t just household pepper.

MAXCatalyst™ uses an innovative technology that alters a specific extract from black pepper. What do these changes allow MAXCatalyst™  to do?

What Does MAXCatalyst Do?

MAXCatalyst has been shown to increase the absorption of other key ingredients.* When it comes to supplements, it’s not just about what you take, it’s what you absorb. Simply ingesting something is no guarantee that all of it will make it to your bloodstream.

This is where MAXCatalystcomes in. Specifically, it has shown the following increased absorption for key ingredients:

L-Citrulline - 64% improvement in plasma amino acid concentration*

Beta-Alanine - 116.23% improvement in plasma amino acid concentration*

Creatine - 40.15% improvement in plasma concentration*

Your Training Gatekeeper

Think of MAXCatalyst™ as a gatekeeper that helps ensure these other key ingredients make it where they need to go. By shielding key ingredients from key metabolizing enzymes, it gives your body more time to absorb them.*

Given its research on these specific key ingredients, we’ve included MAXCatalyst in several of the Kaged Elite Series products.

Which Elite Series Products Have MAXCatalyst? 

You’ll find MAXCatalyst in 4 of the Elite Series products. 

Creatine Monohydrate Elite  

Creatine Monohydrate Elite combines creatine monohydrate with MAXCatalyst, to support creatine absorption.


Protein Isolate Elite

Protein Isolate Elite also has MAXCatalyst™, because it has been shown to improve the absorption of nutrients, including amino acids.* These amino acids are the building blocks of protein.
