BUT WHAT IS THE PUMP AND HOW DOES IT HELP YOU?
A combination of Citrulline Malate (2:1), Agmatine Sulfate, GLYCERPUMP, N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) and Taurine have been included at high levels to take full advantage of their ability to increase the body’s physiological tendency to flood muscles with blood, nutrients, oxygen and yes, metabolic waste products in response to intense training.
By including Taurine and NAC in the new pre-workout, we’ve ensured that you not only have increased blood volume being delivered to the muscles, but that the quality of that blood is improved. N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) increases the amount of erythropoietin (EPO) in the body, in turn increasing red blood cell production. Red blood cells (RBC) are the oxygen carriers, specifically hemoglobin, and levels of hemoglobin were increased 9% in study participants.
This improves anaerobic performance and overall exercise performance by decreasing exercise induced oxidation. It increases post-exercise glutathione (anti-oxidant status) by over 30%, which means faster recovery. The cherry on top is that it increases the plasma level of EPO by over 20% and haemoglobin by 9%.
This quantity will increase your power output and overall muscle performance. It will also increase Nitric Oxide. (Intracellular calcium determines the activation of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS), with the production of higher quantities of nitric oxide.) There’s also a hike in fat metabolism so you’re getting leaner with every rep.
NOOTROPIC FUELED FOCUS
Staying focused at the gym isn’t always easy but it is essential. Today’s best trainers recognize the performance gains that can be achieved by making that mind-muscle connection. The more you can improve the connection between your brain and your muscles, the more muscle fibers you can recruit into action to perform a lift. IMPACT PUMP’s AlphaMind Advanced Focus blend helps achieve that brain to muscle connection at the neuromuscular junction.
We have included two ingredients that are considered by most cognitive researchers to be two of the best neurocognitive enhancers out there; Alpha-GPC (α-glycerolphosphorylcholine) and Lion’s Mane Extract (Hericium erinaceus). Alpha-GPC is an ingredient that is considered to be the ideal way to deliver choline across the blood-brain-barrier (BBB). The brain needs a steady supply of choline to act as the raw material for acetyl-choline.
Lion’s Mane extract is a type of mushroom that has had an increased level of attention recently for its ability to increase the amount of a brain factor known as NGF, or nerve growth factor. This is extremely important since the connectivity in the brain (essentially the way the brain thinks) is dependent on growth of neurons. Together these work to promote neuro-cognitive function that helps deliver sharp focus and that in-the-zone feeling critical to powering through extreme workouts.
THE HALO EFFECT
We have included two of the most effective nutrients that each have distinct activities within the body to maximize the impact of each ingredient. We have used a black pepper extract called piperine that is over 95% pure and a branded ingredient called Cinnulin PF® that is highly concentrated standardized for Type-A double-stranded polymers.
Piperine increases the bioavailability of a wide range of nutrients by increasing the uptake in your gut, reducing the breakdown of nutrients by enzymes and increasing the uptake by cells. Greater absorption and utilization takes this formula to another level.
