MYOVOL-ATP™: ADVANCED MULTI-PHASE CREATINE TRANSPORT AND CELL VOLUMIZING MATRIX — This cutting-edge matrix works synergistically to accelerate creatine transport directly into working muscle tissue, along with delivery of vital metabolic co-factors to produce extreme muscle bioenergetics for increased strength and muscle fiber enlargement. MyoVOL-ATP features proven cell volumizing and bio-energetic boosting ingredients, such as Glucose Bound Creatine Gluconate, Creatinol-O-Phosphate, MicroTein sustained release creatine, Glycocyamine, GuaniPro guanidine propionic acid and TMG.
Glucose Bound Creatine Gluconate: This specialized Glucose Bound Creatine Gluconate maximizes the uptake of creatine into the body, facilitates fastest delivery of creatine to muscle cells and optimizes the utilization by muscle fibers. The glucose moiety provides for insulin receptor uptake stimulation to ensure maximum responsiveness by muscle tissues for increasing creatine uptake speed and rapid muscle tissue creatine saturation. This specialized form of glucose bound creatine therefore maximizes creatine’s vital ergogenic role for producing tremendous cell volumizing effects, in addition to boosting anaerobic energy production for generating high-velocity muscle contractions for increased strength.
MicroTein Sustained Release Creatine: To sustain the Dark Rage induced strength power surge and muscle fiber volumizing effects, the specialized MicroTein Sustained Release Creatine helps ensure that a steady supply of creatine is supplied to muscles during workouts and after workouts for optimal ATP production and creatine uptake. The sustained release technology is critical because the body can only utilize 2 to 3 grams of immediate released creatine. This advanced sustained release creatine delivery works synergistically with the faster acting Glucose Bound Creatine Gluconate to help ignite the most incredible muscle pumps, from igniting maximum muscle fiber cell expansion working at the cellular level, while boosting strength producing energy production to produce more muscle building reps and sets.
Creatinol-O-Phosphate (COP): This muscle fiber bioenergetic performance enhancing compound has been the subject of dozens of independently published research studies, which reveals important benefits for athletes. COP research has reported improved strength performance, via increased muscle fiber activation. Greater muscle fiber activation results in increasing the muscle’s ability to generate more force, which is required for strength and athletic performance. Research also reports a reduction in potential fatigue-causing lactic acid levels via improved blood buffering. Research results further indicate about how subjects taking COP as part of their training program were able to experience greater muscle fiber activation, which was sustained for longer periods of time, stimulating greater muscle strength-endurance. This provides important synergistic muscle bioenergetic, performance, growth and recovery with the specialized creatine substances contained in Dark Rage.
BetaEndur™: MUSCLE ENDURANCE BETA ALANINE/pH BUFFERING SYSTEM – A key factor for enhancing muscle strength and stimulating muscle growth is optimizing the anaerobic bio-energetic fast-twitch muscle fiber capacity to contract over and over again during heavy weight training. BetaBLAST contains an advanced muscle pH buffering system that actually enables you to fight off muscle fatigue so you can squeeze out more reps and pump even more anabolic blood into your muscles during your totally outrageous “overload” training sessions. BetaEndure features proven fatigue fighting and anti-catabolic ingredients such as, Beta Alanine, Citrate, Phosphate, Taurine and BCAAs.
Beta-Alanine: A key ingredient that boosts the body’s naturally blood-buffering system via boosting carnosine levels. Carnosine is synthesized in the body from beta-alanine and is reported to have several biological functions including antioxidant activity, activation of myosin ATPase activity, enhance copper uptake and, of particular interest to athletes, buffering the pH of exercising muscle. Research conducted with athletes using beta-alanine have reported a significant increase in total work (exercise capacity) and increase time to exhaustion (muscle endurance) attributed to the increased blood buffering capacity.
Additional research was aimed at determining what performance enhancing effects would occur by combining creatine and beta-alanine. One research study examined the effects of 28 days of beta-alanine, creatine and beta-alanine and creatine supplementation compared to a placebo group. The researchers wanted to measure the effects of the supplements of the onset of neuromuscular fatigue in untrained men. After 28 days the Beta-alanine and Beta-alanine and creatine taking groups exhibited a delay of neuromuscular fatigue using a continuous incremental cycle ergometry test. Keeping in mind that other research reported that creatine loading may delay the onset of fatigue. Another research study examined the effects of creatine and beta-alanine supplementation on performance and endocrine responses in strength athletes, football players. The football players followed a 10-week resistance training program. They were divided into groups who ingested either creatine, creatine and beta-alanine or a placebo. Significant changes in lean body mass were measured in the group of football players taking creatine and beta-alanine together. Football players taking either creatine or creatine and beta-alanine together experienced significant increase in strength performance, and football players taking just creatine also experienced an increase in testosterone levels.
Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs): The BCAAs are the essential amino acids isoleucine, leucine and valine. Together, these three amino acids make up about 35 percent of the amino acid content of muscle tissue. Each of these amino acids is also used by the body for energy, in addition to anabolic processes. Studies confirm that the BCAAs taken before exercise help to delay the onset of fatigue and increase physical and mental endurance and the capacity to endure intensive workouts. Some of the exercise related benefits observed in research studies include increased exercise endurance, reduction of exercise related fatigue, improved mental performance, increased energy levels, stimulation of protein synthesis, improved nitrogen balance, improved immune system function, increased lean body mass and Increased strength.
Taurine: This important amino acid plays vital roles in supporting neuro-muscular functioning. Taurine is found in muscle tissues in high amounts and plays an important role in modulating the force of muscle contractions and electrolyte balance control. Via neural system tissues, taurine plays a vital role in igniting neuronal excitability needed to trigger powerful muscle contractions. An extra benefit of taurine includes its role in protecting muscle and nervous system tissues. Taurine is therefore included in Dark Rage due to its diverse and important functions to ensure adequate tissue levels for bouts of strenuous training.
PsychoRAGE™: EXTREME FOCUS AND ENERGY UP REGULATORS – get ready to experience the most intense, energized workout of your life as exclusive psychotropic factors, neuro-active compounds and energizers found only in Dark Rage ignite extremely powerful neural system impulses. PsychoRAGE triggers an extreme state of euphoria and mental focus while stimulating the release of adrenaline to super-charge your workouts.PsychoRAGE features proven neuro-active ingredients, such as Glucuronolactone, Caffeine, 1-amino-2-phenylethane, Beta Methoxyphenylethylamine, Tyrosine, Hyperzine A, Vinpocetine, Theobromine and Yohimbe.
Beta-Methoxy PEA: Beta-Methoxy Phenethylamine freely enters the brain barrier and triggers a cascading release of norepinephrine, dopamine and serotonin and stimulates the mesolimbic reward pathway, causing euphoria and excitement. Beta-Methoxy PEA works in part by increasing noradrenaline (NA) release from sympathetic nerve terminals. As a sympathomimetic, Beta-Methoxy PEA acts to stimulate the sympathetic nervous system to release norepinephrine, or what is commonly called noradrenaline (NA), into the synaptic space. Beta-Methoxy PEA is the most effective form or PEA by virtue of its long half-life (stays active in the body longer) as well as its affinity to be better absorbed and permeate the blood/brain barrier. The beta “Methoxy” moiety on this compound protects it and allows for increased absorption across the blood brain barrier and deep penetration into the fatty tissues of the brain where it interacts with the adrenergic receptors to better stimulate noradrenaline release and elicit extreme euphoric “feel good’ neuro-sensory effects. An additional noteworthy benefit of Beta-Methoxy PEA includes its ability to reduce body fat by promoting use of stored body fat for energy.
Caffeine: Caffeine plays a role as an important synergistic with Beta-Methoxy PEA in maintaining the elevated release of Noradrenaline, as well as the other variety of positive effects, notably boosting physical and mental performance. Caffeine use is associated with causing increased alertness and enhanced physical performance, and as a countermeasure to the effects of sleep deprivation. Extensive research has been done on each of these effects of caffeine and reported the following benefits related to boosting workout performance: increases alertness by stimulating the nervous system; increases lipolysis (boosting the use of fatty acids for energy); increases physical activity, and it stimulates thermogenic activity to burn more calories thereby increasing energy production and workout endurance.
Glucuronolactone: Scientists investigated the effects of glucuronlolactone, caffeine and taurine (all of which are contained in Dark Rage) on athletes. Researched measured the effects of this combination on plasma catecholamines, endurance time and other performance parameters. The researchers found that the glucoronolactone, caffeine and taurine taken in combination produced a positive effect on hormonal responses which led to a higher level of workout performance, such as increasing the number of repetitions performed and the total volume of exercise.
