Nova3Labs Story

Nova 3 Labs is the evolution of the brainchild created by Mike Kesthely. It all started many years ago with Dynamic Nutrition, well before a supplement was ever created. Mike is a firefighter, paramedic, nutrition coach and fitness enthusiast. As a shift worker in the first responder world, a consistent sleep schedule is virtually impossible. It is not uncommon to fall asleep for an hour when the alarm bell sounds, alerting you to jump into action. Being very passionate about his career as a first responder, Mike paid very close attention to the noticed that others surrounding him, were also struggling with energy due to the inconsistent sleep patterns that were a side effect of shift work. Many sleep supplements were not an option while on-shift since most required a solid night sleep to avoid grogginess.

Terrible sleep quality coupled with common life and training stress leads to a very common issue plaguing todays society: adrenal fatigue. Working unorthodox hours at the fire station, juggling family commitments as a father of two, providing weekly nutrition consulting to over 60 individuals and squeezing in as many training sessions as possible, Mike was completed burnt out. All the time. Using his nutrition and supplementation knowledge, Mike did everything he could to get a good night sleep and feel human again. It didn’t take long before he was fed up with taking so many pills just to get a singular result. It was in that moment that a supplement line was formulated for Dynamic Nutrition, beginning with Mad Adrenal.  Max Adrenal was formulated after a serious amount of research and the intention to create a solution to Adrenal Fatigue. 

Within a few weeks of consistently taking Max Adrenal, Mike noticed the usual grogginess that he felt daily had disappeared. His sleep had also improved tremendously which improved his general overall productivity and mental clarity. Sharing his creation with his fellow firefighters, they also noticed and major shift their overall well being after just a few weeks of taking Max Adrenal. That sealed the fate of what would become Nova 3 Labs. Mike knew there was a problem to solve in the world, and he knew just how to do it – through honest, open label supplements, using the highest quality ingredients. No bullshit. No gimmicks. Just old fashion honesty and integrity.
