The latest product offering from underground sports nutrition company USA Labs PEP is the all-conquering Performance Enhancing Pre-workout.
The team at USA Labs have developed a product that is certainly not for the faint hearted and should be used only as directed.
The PEP pre-workout has been divided into two main protocols to maximise your body's absorption of synergistic ingredients to get the most from your workouts.
Containing 5 ingredients including L-Citrulline, Beta Alanine, Agmatine, Creatinol O Phosphate & Glycine.
Agmatine is used to assist Improve muscle pumps via the inhibition of nitric oxide synthase (NOS) as well as deliver better intra-workout energy. Agmatine is also known as a neurotransmitter or nootropic, aiding with mental clarity (focus), stress management and mental wellbeing.
It is known to help promote healthy insulin sensitivity, promoting leanness and muscle building. Increases in appetite have been shown even when full, making it easier for underweight individuals to gain weight and muscle mass.
L Citrulline. The body converts L-citrulline to L-arginine, another type of amino acid. L-arginine improves blood flow. It does so by creating nitric oxide (NO), a gas that helps dilate blood vessels.
Creatinol O Phosphate. With continued use, COP allows you to subject your muscles to an increased time under tension. This can elicit a much greater anabolic signal for muscle growth to occur.
Beta-Alanine. As the only naturally occurring beta amino acid Beta-Alanine can work to amplify strength and trigger new gains in muscle size and works to increase intracellular concentrations of carnosine in the muscle.
Glycine. This amino acid helps prevent the breakdown of muscles, because it can boost your body's levels of creatine - a compound helping to build muscle mass.
Juglans Regia Extract,
scientifically knows as 2-amino-5-methylheptane, is a naturally occurring source of DHMA (Octodrine), derived from the bark of the English Walnut tree. Known benefits of using Juglans Regia include improved cognitive function, decreased appetite, improved bronchodilation and increased levels of ‘feel good’ hormones.
Juglans Regia Extract has been included in a variety of Pre Workouts and Fat Burners due to its fantastic performance and mood enhancing properties.
Evodiamine raises your body's temperature and also manipulates your metabolism as well as influences the secretion of catecholamines from your adrenal glands. Increased Evodiamine is like having increased adrenaline with your blood pressure, heart rate, and blood glucose levels all increasing after taking evodiamine.
Additionally, evodiamine stimulates the vanilloids in your body and reduces the uptake of fat. In turn, it increases your body's natural rate of burning fat. It's a mild stimulant that has shown to increase positive energy and diuretic characteristics in a body.
is an endogenous biogenic amine originally derived from the glands of the octopus that is closely related to the hormone norepinephrine. Probably the most common use of this supplement is as a fat burner and weight loss agent. Another benefit of Octopamine is it is less likely to lose effectiveness over longer periods of time, which is a significant benefit over many other fat burning products that tend to only work well for a few weeks.
It supports insulin secretion and sensitivity which may lead to reductions in the symptoms of diabetes sufferers. Octopamine also helps to secrete catecholamines which are hormones similar to adrenaline that can help the body adjust to, and deal with stress.
Athletes who are looking to prevent muscle loss while dieting, like body builders and fitness athletes, might benefit significantly from this supplement. This is due to the thinking that Octopamine may prevent the breakdown of protein for energy. This leads to preserving that hard built muscle mass.
As a beta 3 adrenergic agonist, Octopamine is able to potentially play a role in almost all of the body’s metabolic processes. These receptor are very active and may also lead to fat loss. The most effective role of the supplement here is that it seems to ONLY activate these beta 3 receptors, while leaving all the others alone. This effect alone should help to increase the body’s overall ability to burn fat.
