VPX Power Shock™ Fruit Punch -- 13 oz

Fruit Punch Flavor. Power Shock Muscle Cell Splitting matrix. Behold the all NEW Power Shock™ -- powered by the worlds most cutting-edge bodybuilding discovery of all time called BCAA Nitrates! You heard it right! VPX has engineered Branched Chain Amino Acids fused to a nitrate moiety! This provides for far greater BCAA stability and transport across intestinal and muscle cell membranes. An exciting property of nitrates is their capability to act as permeation enhancers of intestinal absorption. Consequently nitrate bound compounds effortlessly bypass the intestinal wall to be absorbed intact into the bloodstream. In fact they are so effective that large polypeptides can even be absorbed intact if administered with a nitrate donor. This also greatly improves the absorption of all the ingredients like BCAA Nitrates and Beta-Alanine Nitrate in the Power Shock formula. The nitrate bound amino acids innovation is a novel science far superior to free form amino acids and even other chemical salts. One of the premier advantages of nitrates is rapid and potent vasodilation. This results in increased blood flow to radically enhance the distribution of nutrients to the muscles and other tissues. Myogenic Regulatory Factors are activated when the muscle is engorged with nutrient-dense blood. Further stamina strength and recovery are enhanced. While recent research suggests that arginine supplementation fails to increase blood NO levels nitrates help to induce vasodilation via NO. Nitrates increase blood NO levels by exerting their vasodilating effect by releasing an NO2 or NO3 group. NO3 is reduced to NO2 in the blood vessels epithelial cells where it reacts to yield NO. While highly significant BCAAs are just part of the Power Shock muscle cell splitting matrix. Scientific research has suggested that EAAs (essential amino acids) are the key activators for muscle protein synthesis and are far superior to BCAAs alone. Moreover science has proven that adding non-essential amino acids such as glutamine does nothing to promote muscle mass in healthy well-nourished humans. Despite the promise of higher NO levels six grams per day of arginine supplementation had no effect on NO production lactate and ammonia metabolism and performance in intermittent anaerobic exercise in well-trained male athletes. To further fuel lean muscle mass Power Shock contains Owocs latest mind blowing muscle compounds: Anserine or Beta-Alanyl-1-Methylhistidine along with Beta-Alanine Nitrate and Citrulline Nitrate.
