“Reactive hyperemia” describes the increase in muscle blood flow that occurs during high-intensity resistance exercise and produces the “pump” associated with increases in muscle size.
- 1-SCOOP POTENCY: So potent, only 1 scoop (1 serving) is required. Do NOT exceed 1 scoop in a single 24-hour period.
- HIGH CIT:ARG RATIO: Citrulline (Cit) and arginine (Arg) are precursors to nitric oxide (NO), a potent vasodilator. However, Arg stimulates the activity of arginase, an enzyme that destroys Arg. This can lead to lower Arg and NO levels. Research suggests that supplementing with a higher ratio of Cit to Arg may support higher levels of NO by avoiding overstimulation of arginase1. Cit is the body’s “preferred” precursor for Arg for the purpose of synthesizing NO. Studies show that Cit increases Arg levels and markers of NO production.
- CREATINE-FREE: To prevent undesirable water retention, GAT scientists did not add creatine to the formula.
