The new pre-workout product BLUEPRINT is almost here, and very well may change your expectations of what a supplement should do. That’s mostly because of two main ingredients: Cordyceps, and Creatine Nitrate.
Pure Cordyceps Super
Cordyceps has two major functions associated with it. One is that it increases oxygen capacity and the other is that it increases ATP levels. Oxygen capacity increases because Cordyceps acts on the lungs, making it easier to breathe, bringing more oxygen to the body and brain. Atmospheric partial pressures of oxygen run about 20 percent. It turns out that when we exhale, we release 13 percent of the oxygen we inhaled. This is actually very wasteful and certainly not efficient. Human experiments have demonstrated that after oral administration of Cordyceps, the exhalation percentage of oxygen drops to around 8 percent. In other words, you have a 30-40 percent increase in oxygen uptake directly into the body!
This extra oxygen is carried by red blood cells to every tissue in the body making it available to all your mitochondria. This enables your mitochondria to make much more ATP making your system more efficient. This is why athletes, especially those needing to push the extra mile over a longer period of time take Cordyceps. The molecular components of this compound provides increased physical endurance, performance and stamina. The extra oxygen provides for the production of more ATP that will help you go that extra mile and do it comfortably.
The bottom line on Cordyceps: You’ll breathe easier, have more energy and improve workout performance.
This form of creatine, one of the newest, patented developments in the supplement industry, is on the rise in popularity because of its superiority to creatine monohydrate in a couple areas. The first is water retention. Many athletes find that creatine monohydrate adds size, but at the cost of bloating — biochemically speaking, it forces intra- and extra-cellular water retention. Cosmetically speaking, this causes a soft, smooth, bloated appearance, and more importantly, the water retention may restrict muscle growth by causing a constricting environment that doesn’t allow muscle cells to expand in size.
Where creatine nitrate differs is that it expels excess water while simultaneously hydrating muscle cells and saturating them with creatine. Athletes using creatine nitrate as opposed to classic monohydrate should notice a leaner, harder look.
Creatine Nitrate, however, is more than just creatine, as the name implies. The nitrate component offers tremendous functional advantages to athletes. And this advantage is sure to reshape the entire nitric oxide and pre-workout nitric oxide category forever.
Nitrates provide substantial benefits to athletes and bodybuilders, as supported by clinical research. They are organic anions naturally occurring in the human diet, with close to 80 percent of dietary nitrates found in vegetables. Fruits and processed meats represent additional sources of nitrates in the human diet. In fact, researchers at Michigan State University have suggested nitrates may be nutritious. So what benefit does supplementation with nitrates offer to athletes?
In the body, nitrate converts into nitric oxide, and once oxidized, nitric oxide is recycled back into nitrate, which then has the potential to convert into nitric oxide once again. And the cycle continues to repeat itself. This creates an exciting alternative to nitric oxide production, and carries profound implications for the athletic community.
A critical problem with nitric oxide is the short lifespan it has in the body. In just a few seconds, the nitric oxide molecule can be metabolized, and the athlete loses any benefit he/she may have received. A pump however must be sustained for several minutes, if not hours, in order to result in those biochemical conditions required to stimulate muscle hypertrophy. And nitrates are capable of elevating nitric oxide production for up to 8 hours.
The bottom line on Creatine Nitrate: Nitrates provide a prolonged precursor to nitric oxide production, allowing for a better muscle-building environment in the body.
Nitrates Enhance Athletic Performance
The efficacy of nitrates is overwhelming in the clinical research. Nitrate consumption significantly enhances nitric oxide production, resulting in vasodilation, improved nutrient absorption, increased athletic performance, and improved energetic function in working muscles during exercise. For example, during low and moderate intensity exercise by humans, supplementation with nitrates has been reported to reduce the amount of oxygen required. During high intensity athletic exercise, nitrate supplementation enhances tolerance to high intensity training, effectively extending the “time to exhaustion.”
Nitrates Assist with Muscular Growth
Organic nitrates also function as permeation enhancers. This is beneficial because enhanced permeation increases intestinal absorption of all nutrients co-ingested. This may allow for a superior quantity of anabolic nutrients to be absorbed and taken up into muscle cells, assisting athletes with the growth and repair of muscle tissue. Nitrates are even able to allow absorption of large macromolecules such as insulin.
Creatine Nitrate is certain to mark a revolution in two of the hottest selling sports supplement categories today!
