INGREDIENTS BREAK DOWN:
Citrulline Malate 2:1 (6g)
Each dose has 6g of Citrulline Malate 2:1 allowing for intense, long lasting muscle pumps
Research has shown that citrulline increases Nitric Oxide (N.O.) and blood arginine levels which can provide an elevation in protein synthesis (lean muscle growth), creatine synthesis, and a greater BCAA utilization by muscles during exercise.
Supplementing with citrulline malate has been shown to directly increase the number of repetitions, reduce fatigue and significantly decrease muscle soreness post excercise.
It is primarily known to delay the onset of fatigue during high-intensity training and a precursor to nitric oxide allowing for better pumps while training. Citrulline Malate actively delays pH buildup in the muscles. By keeping muscle pH levels at a manageable level, Citrulline Malate aids in recovery and helps to alleviate soreness.
Citrulline malate is the amino acid citrulline bound with malic acid.
We chose to use citrulline malate over its often-used counterpart, L-arginine, because it’s better absorbed and results in higher plasma arginine levels than supplementation with L-arginine itself.
Research shows that supplementation with citrulline…
Improves muscle endurance
Relieves muscle soreness
Improves aerobic performance
Creatine Monohydrate (5g)
Creatine is found in the skeletal muscle and provides inorganic phosphate to resynthesize ATP during intense exercise. This means that as your muscles are working in short, intense bursts, the creatine phosphate that your body stores in the muscle cells donate a phosphate to the degraded ATP. Supplementing with creatine monohydrate ensures that your muscle cells are saturated with creatine phosphate and you are able to increase your endurance, strength and muscle mass.
Research has shown that supplementing with creatine monohydrate supports improved muscle performance for muscle growth, strength and power.
Beta Alanine (3.2g)
The body naturally produces a large amount of hydrogen ions during intense training, which creates an acidic environment. This drop in pH inhibits your body from maintaining forceable contractions. Beta Alanine increases muscle carnosine concentrations, which stabilizes muscle pH and soaks up hydrogen ions. This acts as a powerful intracellular buffer which increases strength, power and muscular endurance.
Beta-alanine increases carnosine levels.
Research suggests daily supplementation of beta-alanine, supports more endurance and recovery from longer training sessions.
Beta-alanine delays muscle fatigue to help increase lean mass and enhance strength.
It reduces lactic acid build up while training allowing for more sets and reps throughout the course of a workout.
Beta-alanine is a naturally occurring amino acid that limits the amount of carnosine, a dipeptide, stored in the muscles. As beta-alanine levels increase, so do intramuscular carnosine levels, and this provides various performance benefits.
Research shows that supplementation with beta-alanine…
Reduces exercise-induced fatigue
Improves anaerobic exercise capacity
Increases potential workload, which can lead to an increase in lean mass
It’s worth noting that a common harmless side effect of beta-alanine supplementation is a mild prickling, itching, or tingling of the skin.
Betaine Anhydrous (2.5g)
Betaine acts as a methyl group donor to help reduce homocysteine levels and convert it into methionine. It has been suggested in clinical studies to improve muscle strength and power production. Betaine also increases levels of SAM-e, which have been linked to improved mood and cognitive function.
It may boost your production of vital neurotransmitters and support SAM-e levels in order to promote a positive outlook. It may also support body composition changes due to its effect on energy pathways, and might also decrease homocysteine levels, a marker of oxidative stress.
Betaine, also known as trimethylglycine, is a compound found in plants like beets.
Research shows that supplementation with betaine…
Improves muscle endurance
Increases growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor 1 production in response to acute exercise
Taurine has shown to be effective for promoting endurance, increasing alertness and enhancing recovery.
Supplementing with Taurine has been shown to increase strength levels and decrease muscle soreness.
Increases mental concentration and alertness and can improve your overall sense of well-being. Taurine has proven to regulate oxidative stress, protect against hardening of the arteries, lower blood pressure, support blood sugar levels, and support energy production.
N-Acetyl Tyrosine (1.5g)
Tyrosine is a non-essential amino acid and a precursor for epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine. These chemical primarily produce alertness, increased energy and improved mental focus.
Research has shown this essential amino acid supports brain function including increasing mental focus and alertness, dopamine levels, mood and energy during exercise.
N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine is 20 times more water soluble and better absorbed to raise tyrosine levels in the body.
Benefits include mood enhancement, counteracting negative side effects of stimulants by lowering anxiety, and promoting healthy blood pressure during times of stress.
Agmatine Sulfate (1g)
Agmatine is derived from the amino acid L-Arginine. It is released endogenously in response to stress or inflammation. It acts as a vasodilator and increases blood flow, nutrient delivery, neurotransmitter activity and removes metabolic waste.
It has been shown to greatly increase hyperaemia and help extend pumps to long after your workout is complete.
Caffeine Anhydrous (350mg)
Caffeine stimulates the central nervous system by blocking adenosine, a neurotransmitter that normally causes a calming effect in the body. Ingestion of caffeine prior to exercise has been found to provide extended endurance in moderately strenuous training.
Caffeine is one of the most well-researched performance enhancement ingredients.
Supplementing with Caffeine immediately increases work volume and muscle strength, mental alertness and mood, assists in fat loss and helps you train at a higher intensity level.
Triggers a range of performance-specific benefits including improved focus, elevated alertness, faster reaction time, reduced fatigue, increased endurance and elevated mood.
Caffeine is a useful pre-workout stimulant that can increase muscle endurance and strength.
Black Pepper Extract 95% (5mg)
Research has shown that Black Pepper Extract enhances drug and nutrient absorption in the body which improves the effectiveness of key ingredients.
