5% Nutrition Stage Ready
When Rich Piana won the 1998 Mr. California, it was the result of years of relentless training and dieting. Yet Rich knew the week leading up to contest day would determine where he would ultimately place. Rich understood the importance of shedding excess water weight before a competition. To do this, he would use a special combination of Dandelion Root, Shavegrass, and Uva Ursi Extract. These powerful ingredients were the key to making sure Rich was ripped to the bone and ready to storm the stage.
When 5% Nutrition set out to create the kind of hardcore diuretic Rich would be proud of, we took a good look at all the possible ingredient options. Of course, they only chose the most effective and safest ingredients available. Included in this powerful formula is 600mg of Dandelion Extract, 550mg of Shavegrass, and 450mg of Uva Ursi Extract, and that’s just the beginning. There’s much more in our heavy-hitting Stage Ready formula to help you rapidly shed excess water weight. You’ll find this ‘Sweat It Out Complex’ will increase the body’s core temperature and speed up the flushing process. Finally, we enhance Stage Ready with critical electrolytes to replenish your body from potentially depleted levels.

Stage Ready Supp Facts
- Dandelion Extract – 600mg
This ingredient is also known as “Taraxacum officinale” and helps increase the frequency of urination. Dandelion has a long history of use as a diuretic in Asia, Europe, and the Americas. This impressive plant not only acts as a diuretic, but it also contains vitamins and minerals. One of these is potassium, one of the important electrolyte minerals.
- Shave Grass Powder – 550 mg
Also known as Horsetail, this herb has been used for centuries as a diuretic, among many other uses.
- Uva Ursi Extract – 450 mg
Uva Ursi, a low growing evergreen shrub, is also known as Bearberry (because bears like to eat the fruit). Among many benefits, Uva Ursi is known for its diuretic properties. Of course, diuretics help you get ripped and ready, but they also help you flush out your body.
- Juniper Berry Extract – 200 mg
Like many of the ingredients in the Stage Ready formula, Juniper originates from the evergreen tree. It’s been traditionally used as a spice as well as digestive support.
- Buchu Extract – 150 mg
This is a South African plant that supports digestion and acts as a diuretic. Like Uva Ursi, Buchu acts as a detoxifying agent. Of course, 5% Nutrition creates formulas that contain effective ingredients that work synergistically to create a complete approach.
- Cranberry Powder – 125 mg
Cranberry is a North American evergreen shrub. It’s also believed to be a potent diuretic, among other benefits.
- Green Coffee Bean – 100 mg
This compound is unroasted coffee beans. This means the active ingredient, Chlorogenic Acid, stays intact. What does Chlorogenic Acid do? Preliminary research indicates it can help reduce carbohydrate absorption. Additionally, animal studies have suggested that it improves the function of the hormone adiponectin. This is considered the primary fat-burning hormone in the body. These three ingredients work synergistically to signal your fat-burning hormones to burn stored fat for fuel.
SWEAT OUT COMPLEX
- Capsimax Cayenne Pepper Fruit Extract – 50 mg
This is a patented form of Cayenne that contains an active ingredient known as Capsicum. It stimulates an increase in the core temperature of the body (thermogenesis), which means you burn more calories as energy. Capsimax is designed to prevent the burning sensation that regular cayenne pepper can cause.
- Paradoxine® Grains of Paradise Extract – 30 mg
This plant originates in West Africa and contains an active phenol compound known as 6-paradol. The Paradoxine form of Grains of Paradise is a high quality, stim-free, herbal fat loss ingredient that contains 6-paradol and 6-shogaol. This compound stimulates thermogenesis in B.A.T. or brown adipose tissue and supports mood elevation. It does this by supporting the conversion of stored fat into BAT, which can then be burned as energy by the body.
- Electrolyte Matrix – 1382 mg
Calcium Carbonate, Potassium Citrate, Magnesium Oxide, Coconut Water Concentrate
