More About The Ingredients We Use:
BCAA - Glutamine - Electrolytes
Promotes Muscle Growth: During high-intensity training, the body utilizes amino acids for fuel. Composed of the essential Branched Chain Amino Acids, Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine, BCAAs facilitates the process of protein synthesis, which helps muscle growth and prevents muscle mass breakdown*
Optimizes Recovery: L-Glutamine is a conditionally essential amino acid, which helps rebuild repair and recover muscle mass after strenuous exercise to reduce muscle breakdown and exercise-induced muscle soreness*
Maximizes Hydration: During high-intensity exercise, alkalizing minerals or electrolytes are utilized to help normalize muscle contraction and function. Without an adequate supply of electrolytes, the inflammatory response of muscles can lead to a lack of recovery and increased pain and soreness. BCAAs delivers fast hydration with sodium, potassium and Vitamin B6, keeping you fueled with electrolytes throughout your workout*
Nitrosigine® is a patented complex of bonded arginine silicate that is scientifically engineered to deliver benefits essential to peak sports performance. Nitrosigine is a powerful and safe non-stimulant ingredient that has been clinically studied for safety and efficacy in 30 studies. The use of Nitrosigine has been shown to promote nitric oxide (NO) production for improved blood flow1, focus, and energy
The unique complex of arginine and silicon in Nitrosigine unlocks powerful synergistic effects that offer enhanced benefits. Arginine contributes to boosting nitric oxide (NO) levels, which has been shown to be a key factor in generating greater blood flow and vasodilation in working muscles. Meanwhile, silicon contributes to blood flow by strengthening and improving the flexibility of arterial walls. Together, these ingredients offer powerful efficacious results compared to each ingredient alone. Nitrosigine increases blood levels of arginine for up to six hours and elevates blood levels of silicon with a single dose.
Size Does Matter: In March of 2020, researchers at The University of Arkansas published an independent study that showed that a single dose of Nitrosigine increases blood flow and vasodilation. In fact, it only took 1.5g of Nitrosigine vs. 8g of Citrulline Malate to achieve the same result.
AstraGin® is a patented, 100% natural compound that increases absorption of many vital nutrients promoting a healthy gut environment
AstraGin® supports increased absorption of a wide range of nutrients from amino acids, to omega-3s, to creatine, to even CBD.
Promotes healthy gut lining and tight junction functioning, ultimately leading to associated effects like reduced inflammation in the intestinal lining.*
AstraGin® can be used in many products, but it’s most useful in:
Popular in many amino-based products such as pre-workouts, BCAA’s, and proteins.
Probiotics and other products that focus on GI health.
VITAMINS & MINERALS
Omega 3, Folate, Glucosamine, and more.
Vasodrive-AP Clinical Trial Results For Better Blood Flow, Circulation, & Lower Blood Pressure
1. Significant Natural Reduction In Blood Pressure
"The reductions demonstrated in a large population could have a profound impact on cardiovascular and cerebrovascular risk. The reduction of blood pressure (BP) was most significant in treatment-naive patients reluctant to begin drug therapy. It is estimated that even a 5-mm Hg reduction in systolic blood pressure results in a 14% reduction in stroke mortality, a 9% reduction in coronary artery disease, and a 7% decline in total mortality."
2. Boosts Blood Flow by Increasing Nitric Oxide Production
"Lowering cardiac stress and muscle damage may be brought about by VPP and IPP, which would be able to induce vasodilation and improve blood flow with increased NO level. Improved blood flow and cardiac muscle stress relief are benefits."
3. Lowers Muscle Soreness
"Supplementation with casein hydrolysate (Vasodrive-AP) that contains standardized lactotripeptides IPP and VPP alleviated muscle soreness and fatigue induced by downhill walking in middle-aged to elderly men."
Creatine HCL does not require a loading phase and calls for a significantly smaller dosage while still delivering the same benefits. Creatine hydrochloride’s main benefit is helping to build muscle faster and easier. This is thought to be due to an increase in the production and supply of ATP to working muscle cells. This also provides more energy to the muscles, helping to avoid lactic acid build-up and allowing for longer and more intense workouts.
Both citicoline and choline serve as a source of choline, a necessary precursor for the production of acetylcholine and phospholipids that aid in neurotransmission and the maintenance of healthy brain cell membranes. Because citicoline is a source of choline, it shares all the benefits that choline delivers. However, Citicoline has additional properties that provide superior brain health benefits compared to choline.
- Citicoline serves as a source of pyrimidines (cytidine and uridine) when choline does not.
- Pyrimidines have been shown to improve mitochondrial function
- The cytidine component of citicoline (converted to uridine in the bod) helps the brain increase endogenous levels of dopamine and norepinephrine.
- Citicoline's ability to increase dopamine corresponds to findings in multiple studies where it has effectively increased focus and attention in healthy subjects.
- Citicoline has demonstrated the ability to increase levels of high energy phosphate, and adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in the frontal cortex of healthy subjects.
- Multiple studies have shown that citicoline has a significant effect on the brain phospholipid metabolism.
Backed by years of research, citicoline provides significant benefits for focus, attention and brain energy in healthy subjects that are not shared with choline.

TeaCrine® is a patented compound that delivers energy, mental clarity, and improved motivation and mood.
TeaCrine® is one of the most versatile supplements ever discovered. Preclinical and human clinical research shows TeaCrine® facilitates a wide range of healthy functions while providing an edge in the fiercely competitive and rapidly growing markets of energy, performance, and cognitive achievement. Yet, it’s not a stimulant, and it provides energy without the jitters or crash. Whether we're simply looking for a cleaner complement to caffeine, an enhancement to our pre-workout, or just need to regain that fire focus required to get through our busy lives everyday, TeaCrine® is the right ingredient at the right time. It's not just energy we're talking about, either. TeaCrine® also provides that powerful mood-boost in a sensory experience not found in most stress and joint formulas. We're proud of this revolutionary ingredient designed for specific needs while considering the entire human experience.
Fast-acting, high-impact energy, mood and focus
SELF-AFFIRMED GRAS Dynamine™, is a rapid-onset energy and focus ingredient that increases perceived energy, alertness, productivity and motivation to perform mental tasks.
Dynamine™ is methylliberine, a purine alkaloid found in the kucha tea leaf. Its molecular structure is similar to theacrine (aka TeaCrine®) and is believed to behave in similar ways in the body. Like theacrine, methylliberine may amplify feelings of energy, mood and focus by activating dopamine receptors and other key neurotransmitters, inhibiting adenosine receptors, all without elevating heart rate or blood pressure.
After 20 years of limited innovation in energy products, Dynamine™ is poised to disrupt the energy category with its backed-by-science benefits and a growing list of toxicology, safety, and efficacy studies currently underway.
Di Caffeine Malate
Dicaffeine malate is a buffered form of caffeine that generates the same stimulatory effects of caffeine but protects the stomach from the upset that can be experienced with caffeine anhydrous. Additionally, malic acid is also a key player in the Krebs Cycle, the intracellular process of energy creation.
Possibly dicaffeine malate’s biggest contribution is its ability to provide a more extended, smooth and sustained energy compared to caffeine anhydrous. Most often regular forms of caffeine generate a huge surge of energy that leads to jitters, and eventually, a huge crash. The combination of malate and caffeine offers a smooth uptick in energy which lasts a few hours longer than traditional caffeine and has a smooth ride down.
Dicaffeine malate is incredibly effective, but when used in tandem with caffeine anhydrous, the two form an ideal punch of quick hitting energy that will last long after you’ve finished your last set for the day.
