GOKU GAINS Ingredient Profile
L-Citrulline (Malate 1:1)
L-Citrulline is an amino acid that is turned into L-arginine in the kidneys after supplementation, which means L-citrulline supplementation is a more effective method of increasing L-arginine levels and thus Nitric Oxide in the body than L-arginine supplementation. Think of Citrulline as a “super pump” ingredient.
Ancient Peat, Apple extract (elevATP®)
elevATP® is a proprietary, clinically researched combination of a water extract of “ancient peat” (fossilized plants) and apple extract that works with our natural energy-producing mechanisms to stimulate production of ATP, the energy currency of the body, which is clinically proven to Help improve athletic performance and strength.
Agmatine is derived from L-arginine through decarboxylation (the removal of a carboxylic acid group). It is stored in neurons and is released during neuronal activation. Agmatine is considered to be a neurotransmitter and anecdotally , to enduce greater muscular pumps
Betaine Anhydrous (or Beta-Power®)
Trimethylglycine (TMG) is a molecule which, structurally, is the amino acid Glycine with three methyl groups attached to it, known as a ‘betaine’. used for increased intracellular concentrations of betaine promote cell hydration and resilience to stressors. Clinical studies show marked increases in strength.
Taurine is not bull urine, it is an organic acid with a sulfur in it. It is found in foods, in highest amounts in meats, and is a heart and blood healthy agent . Its most well known usage is to reduce cramping caused by combination of stimulats and training
Nitrosigine® (as Inositol Stabalized Arginine Silicate)
Nitrosogine patented complex of bonded arginine silicate and is scientifically engineered to significantly boost nitric oxide levels, delivering benefits to those engaged in fitness training programs such as improved muscular pump and enahnced output
Danshen Extract (Salvia miltiorrhiza)
Salvia militorrhiza (also known as Danshen) is an asian herb historically known to have beneficial effects on the circulatory system, which for those engaged in weight training, will notice an improved muscular pump, by aiding the other Nitric Oxide ingredients
Choline is a molecule mostly used for either its cognitive boosting properties (turning into acetylcholine, the learning neurotransmitter), which prolongs mental focus and accuity
Caffeine is a chemical found in coffee, tea, cola, guarana, mate, and other products. Caffeine is most commonly used to improve mental alertness, and sympathetic nervous system metabolic energy.
Hordenine (N,N-dimethyltyramine) is an adrenergic-like compound and is used as a rapidly responding mental stimulant.
Vitamin C (ascrobic acid)
Vitamin C is used to combat infections, colds, and disease. Vitamin C is also used by your body in all kinds of healing, and to reduce training-induced muscular inflammation.
Pycnogenol® dried French Maritime pine extract (bark) [std. to 65% procyanidins]
Known as Pine Bark Extract; Pycnogenol is usedfor its ability to enhance Nitric Oxide and provide greater pumps during workouts.
Huperzine-A is a cognitive enhancer that inhibits an enzyme that degrades the learning neurotransmitter, acetylcholine, and thus fights off mental fatigue during training
N-Methyltyramine (NMT), also known as 4-hydroxy-N-methylphenethylamine, is a human trace amine (tyramine) and natural phenethylamine alkaloid. It’s basically like EPHEDRINE’s little brother.
Theacrine (as TeaCrine®) has energy boosting effects similar to caffeine without the jitters, crash, and habituation that often accompanies caffeine.
2-aminoisoheptane (DMHA or Octodrine)
DMAA’s chemical cousin. Known as 2-aminoisoheptane, Octodrine, and 2-amino-6- methylheptane, this stimulant has about 80% of DMAA’s strength, for producing mental stimulation.
