CORE Pump 28 serv - Sour Apple Candy
Pre-workoutVasodilator and Performance Optimizer
Physiological Properties and Effects:
· Nitrosigine® to be more biologicallyeffective than arginine hydrochloride (HCl).
· Enhanced blood flow during and afterexercise, helping with muscle growth and recovery.
· Blood vessel relaxation almost 5xgreater than Arginine HCl.
· Higher nitric oxide related maximumblood flow and vessel relaxation.
Thousandsof reactions occur within the body as a result of intense physical training.Many of these cellular reactions form destructive oxygen atoms, known asradical oxygen species – or more commonly, free radicals. The cumulativeeffects of free radicals on human cells are known as oxidative stress, andhence, “anti-oxidants” have become a staple of most supplementation regimens.
Oneof the most potent and widely used anti-oxidants is vitamin C. In an exercisespecific context, Vitamin C has been demonstrated to cleave (get rid of) manyof the destructive radical oxygen species created in human skeletal muscleduring exercise, and in the production of nitric oxide (the very purpose of a “pump”product). In one human trial, seven healthy, exercise-trained males were giveneither placebo, or a mixture of antioxidants containing primarily vitamin C(1500 mg), prior to an acute exercise challenge of 90 minutes. Afterward, the vitamin C groups displayedsignificantly lower levels of exercise-induced radical oxygen species. VitaminC’s radical scavenging effects have also been demonstrated to exert a dose andtime-dependent effect on nitric oxide levels – meaning that the effectincreased, to a point, with the serving provided. Researchers believe thatVitamin C does not directly affect nitric oxide, but rather protects a compoundknown as tetrahydrobiopterin from various radical oxygen species.Tetrahydrobiopterin is, in turn, a critical component in the production of eNOS(endothelial nitric oxide).
Thinkof it like this: tetrahydrobiopterin (and therefore nitric oxide) is the popstar, and vitamin C is the bodyguard. Vitamin C itself does no singing, itsimply prevents the creeps from interrupting the pop star, allowing it to sing.
