Pro Supps Dr Jekyll - From the training journal of IFBB pro Art Atwood comes Dr. Jekyll: a powerful pump formula that answers the call for a true anabolic pre-workout powder. Unlike it's evil "split-personality" Mr. Hyde, Dr Jekyll supplies intense pumps fueled by agmatine sulfate and citrulline malate. Dr Jekyll combines the effects of a sensory-focused and vein-popping pump formula with added anabolic compounds L-leucine, L-norvaline, creatine hydrochloride.
The Strength Matrix
Creatine hydrochloride is a hydrochloride salt patented in 2009 and marketed as an athletic and bodybuilding supplement. A study suggests creatine hydrochloride to be 59 times more soluble in water than creatine monohydrate. Due to its higher solubility, the recommended dosage for creatine hydrochloride is much lower than that for creatine monohydrate.
The Endurance Complex
Beta-alanine is a non-essential Amino Acid used predominantly by athletes and strength trainers to support lean muscle mass, Increase Strength, Increase Endurance and energy levels and delay muscle fatigue. Unlike many other amino acids, beta-alanine is non-proteinogenic, which means it is not involved in the composition of protein. Beta-alanine is the only naturally occurring beta-amino acid and its most available source is within the dipeptide carnosine, typically found in Protein rich foods such as poultry, beef, pork and fish. Beta-alanine can also be found within the dipeptides anserine and balenine. However, digesting foods rich in Protein to raise beta-alanine levels is not particularly crucial as the liver is able to produce it within the body.
Histidine is an amino acid. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein in our bodies. Histidine is involved in a wide range of metabolic processes in the body. Histidine helps support growth and repair of tissue, as well as the maintenance of the myelin sheaths that act as protector for nerve cells.
The Amino Matrix
Leucine is the only dietary amino acid that has the capacity to stimulate muscle protein synthesis. As a dietary supplement, leucine has been suggested to slow the degradation of muscle tissue by increasing the synthesis of muscle proteins. While once seen as an important part of the three branch chained amino acids in sports supplements, leucine has since earned more attention on its own as a catalyst for muscle growth and muscular insurance.
HMB (B-hydroxy B-methylbutyrate)
HMB is a chemical that is produced when the body breaks down Leucine. Leucine is an amino acid, one of the building blocks of protein. HMB is used for promoting the benefits from weight training and exercise. In combination with the amino acids arginine and glutamine, HMB is also used for supporting weight loss. HMB promotes muscle growth.
Energy and Focus Matrix
Pikatropin is a nootropic compound that supports blood flow to the brain and may help lessen mental fatigue It possesses high cerebrovascular activity promoting cognitive, analytical, and performance function (Hand to eye coordination and reaction times).
Caffeine anhydrous is a stimulant that is used as an energy support to increase athletic performance. It combats fatigue, has a mild diuretic effect and also promotes lipolysis; the breakdown of fatty acids.
The Pump Matrix
Agmatine is naturally produced in the body by the breakdown of arginine. Supplementing with agmatine sulfate does many of the same things that arginine should do, but it seems to be much more effective. Agmatine sulfate has many benefits to the bodybuilder or athlete. The benefits of agmatine sulfate include supporting muscle pumps, nutrient partitioning (calories shuttled towards muscle tissue rather than being stored as fat), and promoting the production of luteinizing hormone and growth hormone. Agmatine sulfate appears to boost muscle pumps in a couple different ways. First, agmatine sulfate may improve nutrient partitioning, leading to more muscle glycogen (carbohydrates stored in muscle tissue) stored and consequently more water retained in the muscle. This can lead to a full look to the muscle and increase muscle pumps. Second, agmatine sulfate may support nitric oxide production by acting as a competitive inhibitor of the enzyme nitric oxide synthase.
Increases blood volume, enhances temperature regulation and improves exercise performance in the heat. Glycerol is proposed to help "hyper hydrate" the body by increasing blood volume levels and helping to delay dehydration which help engorge muscle swelling pumps during exercise.
Citrulline malate supports aerobic performance and capacity by influencing lactic acid metabolism and reducing fatigue. Studies suggest support for mental and physical energy. Citrulline may also assist you in training harder and longer during intense exercise sessions in a similar manner to the energy production of creatine, without any side effects of cramping, bloating or water retention.There has also been some recent suggestions in research studies that Citrulline is even more effective than arginine for promoting plasma arginine levels. This suggests that Citrulline may indeed be more effective at nitric oxide production than supplementing with arginine. Citrulline has also been suggested to be highly effective at supporting growth hormone production.
Research suggests that Norvaline is a strong inhibitor of arginase activity because of its structural similarity to ornithine, which may support feedback regulation on the activity of arginase. When you inhibit arginase, no production is promoted.
Ultimately, what makes Dr. Jekyll so effective is a synergistic infusion of the highest quality ingredients and extracts. Once you try Dr. Jekyll you will feel & understand the power of a true anabolic pre-workout powder.
