MIND to MUSCLE:
Any elite performance is an outcome of the melding of your brain, with its synapses, both neuron & chemical, firing synergistically to command your body, with its muscles and everything they attach to, to perform the outcome you demand of it, of yourself.*
A plant based alkaloid extract that has been shown to prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine, a key component of brain function. Not only does it prevent acetylcholine breakdown, but has been shown to increase levels for up to 6 hours post consumption. Huperzine A has also been shown to promote healthy hormone levels, increase memory retention, promote mitochondria and liver health, and even prevent neuron death from toxicity.*
A plant based compound that has been shown to have a: nootropic increase, physical performance increase, but a fat burning increase as well. An underground metabolism and mental booster not just touted in body building communities, but has seen an increase in popularity in gaming and silicon valley for: increased attention span, calorie burning, mood, and productivity. The primary driving mechanism being the link between hordenine and the protection and release of norepinephrine, which in turn stimulates your central nervous system leading to countless benefits.*
Bucked Up™ contains 6 grams of L-Citrulline. L-Citrulline L-Citrulline is a key ingredient to Bucked Up™ pre workout which offers the full clinical dosing of 6 grams bioavailable L-Citrulline. L-ctirulline is an amino acid which actually turns into L-arginine in the kidneys after supplemenation. In fact, because of this, it is more effective at increasing L-arginine levels in your body than L-arginine itself! So, what does that mean for you?
Now a cornerstone in most nutritional arsenals. This amino acid plays a vital role in keeping your PH levels optimal. Beta-Alanine works by cranking up the L-Histidine in your body, and in turn increases the levels of carnosine. Carnosine is important in fighting the build up of hydrogen in your muscles; as well as improving the performance of fast-twitch muscles needed for explosive movements such as: clean & jerks, sprinting, box jumps. When the hydrogen ions build up, we get lactate and acid this is a defense mechanism to protect our body. In other words your body is telling you that you don’t have enough oxygen, enough carnosine, and we need to chill for a bit. By consuming beta-alanine; we increase our ability fight off that lactic acid build up, and push ourselves closer to our goals.*
Alphasize™ Alpha-Glyceryl Phosphoryl Choline (A-GPC)
Alphasize Alpha-Glyceryl Phosphoryl Choline (A-GPC) provides an immediate supply of choline to the bloodstream. AlphaSize® GPC is a clinically proven ingredient and is considered to be one of the most effective brain nutrients in the world. AlphaSize® A-GPC has interesting utility in “mind-to-muscle” sports nutrition formulations, where it acts to optimize muscular power output, sharpen agility, and also delay mental fatigue. This is due to its action involving motor unit activation of muscle fibers and subsequent muscle contraction, as well as due to its mental sharpness benefits. While doing studies for AlphaSize, scientists discovered that it is also a “Growth Hormone Potentiate”. AlphaSize prior to a work out can help you reach your growth hormone potential, and in turn lead to greater results.
AstraGin™ has shown in multiple clinical studies to increase the absorption of L-Citrulline. Using this ingredient in conjunction with the right formulation has proven to increase the bioavailability of the amino acids, arginine & citrulline by up to 66.7% Which in turn means a better bang for your ‘buck’ and insane pump for your lifts.
ActiGin™ is a patent-pending compound and is supported by a 2015 published human clinical study, which delivered the following results: (a) increased glycogen recovery by up to 370 percent, (b) increased high-intensity endurance performance by up to 20 percent, and (c) decreased oxidative inflammation up to 69 percent after high-intensity exercise. ActiGin is unique in that it loads your muscles with more glycogen pre workout and enhances citrate synthase activity during workout.
This remarkable trademarked ingredient is a clinically proven, fast acting, anti-inflammatory that increases glycogen recovery by up to 370%, increases VO2 max by up to 20% & decrease oxidative inflammation by up to 66%. Created by combining specific strains of ginseng and rosehips, this super product has revolutionized training as we know it.
HIMALAYAN ROCK SALT
A secret of professional athletes everywhere, Himalayan Rock Salt plays a vital role in Bucked Up. Extracted from deep in the Himalayas, this ancient salt has been preserved from man’s pollution for thousands of years, and is a pure source of over 80+ trace minerals. Trace minerals are a key factor in the prevention of: cramping, over training, muscle fatigue, injury & recovery.
The geographical location of the mountain range has helped preserve the integrity of these trace minerals, which are made up of: magnesium, calcium, potassium. Iodine and much more. Table salt is usually derived from locations that have usually been over polluted by man, as well as being chemically treated during it’s manufacturing process. Trace minerals play a vital role in muscle performance, the prevention of cramping, fatigue, cognitive function, coordination, focus, thyroid function, electrolyte balance, hydration, blood flow (pump), the removal of body toxins, metabolic rate, and most importantly, crushing your goals. We use the highest quality rock salt because we understand there’s a direct correlation between how you perform day in and day out, and what you put into your body.
Deer Antler Velvet Extract
DAS Labs produces the No. 1 deer antler velvet product on the market. Deer antler velvet can be used for a variety of reasons. DAS Labs deer antler velvet is extracted from healthy red stag deer on farms located in New Zealand. Deer antler velvet is rich in IGF-1 & IGF-2. Proven to elevate blood serum levels, this ingredient has been shown to maximize hormone levels leading to: accelerated recovery, increased strength, faster results, and a healthy sexual libido.
Methyl B-12 scientifically referred to as Methylcobalamin is a much better retained, and more bioavailable than other forms of B-12. Methyl B-12 is a cofactor of methionine synthase, which reduces toxic homocysteine to the essential amino acid methionine. In layman’s terms what this means is that it will convert toxicity into an essential building block of muscle. It will also promote healthy sleep as well as assisting with nerve function in the brain. This will lead to a much better focus, and tenacity in your workouts. A workout is nothing more than synapses and nerve function. When we can get them operating how they should, we have no need for stimulants which increase blood pressure & diminish the pump.
An amino acid found primarily in fish, Taurine has been proven to treat heart failure, high blood pressure, liver disease, high cholesterol, ADHD and much more. Scientists have also discovered applications in performance as well. Japanese researchers discovered that adding Taurine to your regiment will increase your VO2 max. What this means in layman’s terms is that your ability to use and transport oxygen; which plays a huge role in determining your point of failure. A higher VO2 max means more reps, more weight, more distance, faster times, more results
