Whether you're an athlete, body builder, or just regular gym goer, one thing that we all try to achieve while lifting weights is the elusive "pump". In short, the "pump" is a not so fancy way of describing the feeling achieved by causing an influx of blood and nutrients to the specific muscle(s) that we are training. While there are many different factors that affect the level of pump that we can achieve, VasoPeak X was designed to help simplify that process.
Thanks to its 12 efficaciously dosed ingredients, VasoPeak X can either be taken as a standalone or stacked with Immortal X for intense, skin splitting pumps and muscle fullness long after your gym session has ended.
Citrulline is a non-essential, non-protein amino acid that is vital in the helping to promote vasodilation. For nitric-oxide production, citrulline breaks down into arginine and is a far more bio-available than arginine itself, thus it is a staple in the supplement industry as one of the most effective pump ingredients on the market.
On it's own, L-arginine is very inefficient at producing and sustaining high levels of nitric oxide in the body. However, many studies have been done comparing the nitric oxide production of L-Arginine in combination with L-Citrulline. Those studies have shown that when combined, there is a vast improvement in plasma nitric oxide and cGMP levels, as well as, blood flow.
Pink Himalayan Sea Salt 1000mg:
Sodium is one of the most underrated ingredients in the supplement industry and it's effects on the "pump" are almost unrivaled. Every cell in the body utilizes what is known as the sodium/potassium pump and sodium is required for balancing out fluids within the cells, nerve signaling and very importantly, muscle contractions.
Pine Bark Extract (PBE) 500mg:
Pine bark extract is hands down the most underrated supplement ingredient on the market today for sports nutrition. While PBE has a vast array of health benefits, the main driving force behind having PBE in Immortal X was due to its large concentration of flavanoids (procyanidins) which are derived from catechin and epicatechin molecules. The large concentration of flavanoids found within pine bark extract have a huge impact on blood flow throughout the body and help to increase blood circulation in all parts of the body.
Horny Goat Weed (Icariin) 400mg:
Another flavanoid utilized to help increase blood flow within the body is Icariin. Icariin helps to increase nitric oxide synthase which is an enzyme used to catalyze nitric oxide production in the body.
Grape Seed Extract (Vitis vinifera) (std. min. 95% Proanthocyanidins) 400mg:
Grape seed extract contains high concentrations of polyphenols that are well known as potent vasodilators. This allows for a greater increase in nitric oxide production, decrease in blood pressure as well as a decrease in resting heart rate.
While this is typically an ingredient found in energy drinks, it is naturally made in the body once glucose is metabolized in the liver. Gluconolactone has been shown to be able to help prevent the effects of exhaustion from vigorous activity, as well as, increasing mood and mental performance.
Lactase phlorizin hydrolase (LPH), is involved in the hydrolysis (breakdown) of Icariin, a diglycoside. The larger LPH presence in the body, the less certain molecules, such as Icariin can be absorbed. Gluconolactone acts as an LPH inhibitor, thus allowing for a greater increase in Icariin absorption in the intestines.
Black Ginger Extract (Kaempferia parviflora) (rhizome) (std to 15% polymethoxyflavonoids) 150mg:
Black ginger extract is a natural PDE-5 inhibitor, so it has a similar but not so profound effect as its blue prescription counterparts. What this allows for is an increase in nitric oxide production. It has also been shown to increase performance efficacy, muscular endurance, and increase energy expenditure.
Vitamin B9 (Folate) 400mcg:
While most people just look at it as another B vitamin, B9 plays an important role in nitric oxide bioavailability within the vascular endothelium.
Vitamin C 250mg:
Vitamin C has been shown to increase nitric oxide synthase (NOS) enzyme activity within the cells. The NOS enzymes are catalysts for the production of nitric oxide from L-Arginine.
Absorption: (Astragin) 50mg:
To help bring all of these ingredients together and to ensure that they are able to provide the most skin splitting pumps both during and after your workout, Astragin has been added to VasoPeak X. Astragin has also been shown to increase the absorption of L-Citrulline by up to 45% as well as increasing ATP production via the liver by up to 18%.
