VPX has engineered branched chain amino acids fused to a nitrate moiety! This provides a far greater BCAA stability and transport across intestinal and muscle cell membranes. 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 anabolic nutrient-dense blood. Further, stamina, strength and recovery are enhanced. While recent research has verified that arginine supplementation fails to increase blood nitric oxide levels, nitrates are scientifically proven to induce vasodilation via nitric oxide. Nitrates increase blood nitric oxide 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 nitric oxide. While highly significant, BCAAs are just part of the Power Shock muscle cell splitting matrix. Scientific research has proven that EAAs (essential amino acids) are the key anabolic 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 nitric oxide levels, six grams per day of arginine supplementation had no effect on nitric oxide 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 Owoc’s latest mind-blowing muscle compounds: Anserine or Beta-Alanyl-1-Methylhistidine along with Beta-Alanine Nitrate and Citrulline Nitrate.
