This is a naturally occurring amino acid with malic acid added. Malic acid increases energy production and citrulline produces potent levels of arginine ( a precursor to Nitric Oxide), a powerful vasodilator.
Beta Alanine as BetaO
A non-essential amino acid that has been shown to improve athletic performance in some studies. It delays muscle fatigue and can help build muscle. Imagine that burning feeling on the bike or during those high reps. This can help with that.
A molecule that has been shown to increase ATP (cellular energy) in the body. It is used to improve stamina during workouts and also produce Carnosine, which is a critical protein building block found in the muscles and brain.
This is a trademarked version of Glycerol Powder that is rapidly absorbed by the body and creates a state of ‘oversaturation’ flooding the muscle with fluid creating intense pumps and circulation for nutrient delivery.
A naturally occurring chemical in the body that aids in the normal functioning of the heart, blood, eyes, brain and bones. Its benefits include preventing a build-up of homocysteine. Also, betaine may boost muscle strength and size is by increasing creatine production in the body. Betaine may also have the beneficial effect of supporting healthy homocysteine levels.* High homocysteine levels have been shown to impair insulin signalling, which can interfere with muscle growth and fat loss.
Packing in a whopping 350mg per serving, you will definitely get a kick from this. This form of caffeine will aid absorption and is proven to boost performance.
A stimulant made from a plant extract, that will open airways when training giving an obvious benefit. Furthermore, studies have shown it can increase dopamine and noradrenaline.
Higenamine is a stimulant with cardiovascular properties. It does this via dilating the bronchial tubes giving anti-asthmatic properties. Furthermore, it is used in many fat burners due to it having similar effects as ephedrine (increased heart rate)
Another patented product that uses the entire coffee plant, not just the bean fro energy. It increases BDNF levels ( a brain-boosting protein) as well as the standard boost you would get from caffeine.
