Creatine (Creapure® pH10),
Creatine is an organic compound that is highly concentrated in muscle, where it is stored as fuel for the production of ATP energy that powers muscle contractions.
High-energy exercises – including strength training and intense short-burst aerobic and interval training – deplete muscle reserves of creatine and ATP energy.
Supplementation with Performance Lab® Sport Pre-Workout helps by restoring creatine to muscle, where it supports training intensity, muscle growth and recovery by:
- Recharging the ATP energy molecule that powers muscle fibers, enhancing physical performance during high-intensity exercise;
- Stimulating insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), a protein which helps to promote lean muscle mass development;
- Buffering the intracellular hydrogen ions that form lactic acid within muscle, helping to extend time of muscle performance to failure
About Creapure® pH10
Creapure® pH10 is a special 99.5% pure form of creatine monohydrate manufactured by AlzChem AG to superior standards of quality and safety. Creapure® pH10 is pH-balanced to enhance nutrient bioavailability while reducing the bloating and gastric distress that may be associated with other creatine forms. Creapure® pH10’s bioavailability advantages are important because higher creatine uptake has been linked to greater performance benefits.
Research has also shown that BCAAs’ beneficial activities for muscle appear to reduce training-induced soreness in both women (chart A) and men (chart B):
L-Citrulline supplementation has been associated with improvements in time-trial cycling competition in clinical research:
L-Citrulline is an amino acid found in watermelon that complements creatine’s bioactivities with versatile support for muscle performance. L-Citrulline primarily works by raising L-Arginine blood levels. Arginine then promotes muscle growth and function by:
- Enhancing nitric oxide (NO) production, which relaxes blood vessels and improves blood flow to muscles;
- Improving utilization of BCAAs during exercise, which in turn promotes ATP energy production and protein synthesis while countering protein breakdown;
- Supporting greater muscle power output while maintaining VO2 max (maximal oxygen consumption), which may reflect enhanced muscle performance efficiency;
- Helping to clear ammonia from muscle tissue; ammonia buildup occurs during exercise and is associated with muscle failure.
In addition to functioning as a physical performance-enhancer, L-Citrulline has been suggested to reduce soreness and fatigue after intense exercise – reinforcing its role as an important sports nutrient for immediate and long-range training support.
About Performance Lab® Sport Pre-Workout L-Citrulline:
Our L-Citrulline is sourced from a premium global supplier and then subjected to rigorous testing in our own lab to verify purity, potency and superior quality prior to manufacture.
L-Citrulline helps Creatine:
L-Citrulline converts to Arginine, which is a necessary precursor for creatine synthesis – complementing Creapure® pH10’s supplemental creatine with support for natural creatine production.
Cordyceps Super™ (standardized for min. 50% total polysaccharides; 15% 1,3-1,6 beta glucan; and 5% alpha glucan),
Cordyceps is a natural fungus that grows on moth and butterfly larvae in Asia, where it is traditionally used as a revitalizing tonic. Emerging research backs cordyceps’ potential to both enhance exercise capacity and strengthen the body’s resistance to fatigue during both aerobic and anaerobic exercise.
Cordyceps is included in Performance Lab® Sport Pre-Workout for its potential to:
- Stimulate mitochondrial ATP energy generation while protecting mitochondria from free radical damage – dual activities that combine to support muscle power and long-range muscle health;
- Enhance cell oxygen utilization, promoting efficient physical performance that may improve aerobic exercise capacity and extend time to exhaustion
About Cordyceps Super™:
Cordyceps Super™ is made with a patented process that mimics fungal growing conditions in nature – producing a nature-identical, 16:1 potency, micronized cordyceps supplement with superior absorption ability. Cordyceps Super ™ is produced in a lab without the use of larvae, and therefore is free of any safety risks or other concerns associated with traditional larvae-based Cordyceps forms.
L-Glutamine (from Ajinomoto®),
L-Glutamine – the most abundant amino acid in the body – is most highly concentrated in muscle. Here, it plays a key role in protein metabolism while functioning as the primary carrier of nitrogen needed for muscle energy, growth and repair.
L-Glutamine also supplies complementary training and anabolic support to Performance Lab® Sport Pre-Workout, helping to:
- Increase blood levels of bicarbonate, an alkalizing agent that accelerates clearing of lactic acid from muscle tissue, potentially extending time of muscle performance until failure;
- Increase blood levels of growth hormone to make glutathione, a potent antioxidant that fights immune challenges that may accompany overtraining;
- Protect muscle gains. Intense exercise depletes muscle L-glutamine levels; muscles may atrophy without sufficient glutamine present
About L-Glutamine by Ajinomoto®
Established in 1908, Ajinomoto® is the world’s largest amino acid manufacturer, with a long history of innovations including Ferment-A-Pure technology – a patented, eco-friendly process that transforms non-GMO and gluten free vegetable-derived carbohydrates into bioavailable amino acids, including the L-Glutamine found in Performance Lab® Sport Pre-Workout.
L-Glutamine strengthens athletes’ immunity:
Athletes face a higher incidence of immune challenges, in part because intense exercise depletes the glutamine that fuels immune cells and helps regulate immune responses. Glutamine supplementation has been suggested to enhance immune system performance in athletes.
Regular training augments muscle L-Carnosine:
Exercise has been shown to reduce L-Carnosine excretion, thereby helping to maintain optimal muscle carnosine concentrations. L-Carnosine supplementation helps to promote robust exercise performance, which in turn helps to further optimize L-Carnosine levels in muscle tissue.
L-Carnosine is a dipeptide molecule that is most highly concentrated in muscle tissue, especially within fast-twitch muscle fibers. Muscle carnosine levels are higher in anaerobic athletes like bodybuilders and sprinters. L-Carnosine has been suggested to protect muscle with three distinct bioactivities:
- Supplying targeted antioxidant activity to help neutralized cell-damaging oxidative stress in muscle that is generated during intense exercise;
- Inhibiting protein-damaging advanced glycation end-products (AGEs);
- Acting as a muscle-alkalizing intracellular pH regulator, buffering the impact of muscle-damaging acids
L-Carnosine’s natural buffering activity within muscle in particular has been suggested to enhance workout performance by extending tolerance to the lactic acid build-up that precedes muscle failure.
Evidence has shown that L-Carnosine concentration in fast-twitch muscle fibers may be significantly correlated with increased muscle power during high-intensity exercise performance.
