VASO-D PUMP’D - Nitric Oxide Formula

Howdy fellow iron brothers...

If you're like me you want to see those muscle pumped to the MAX and veins standing out when you're lifting hard and heavy. I know I'm training right when I get a monster pump,

And the more pumped I get, the better gains I make. That's why I love VASO D Pump'd! I can rely on monster pumps every workout.....

What's not to like!!

The Anatomy of the Muscle Pump!

A great muscle pump while you're working out is a sure sign you are training hard enough to stimulate new muscle growth! When you lift weights, extra blood is shunted into your working muscles to cope with the increased demands for oxygen and other energy-producing compounds. Your arteries carry blood into your muscles, however, as your muscles contract intensely, the veins taking blood out of your muscles are compressed which causes a back up of blood - resulting in the "the Pump".

The typical sets and reps of a high-intensity bodybuilding style training program will usually generate a strong pump. The muscle swelling of a good pump not only feels great, but research has shown that this cell swelling acts as a stimulus to increased protein synthesis! At a cellular level, cell swelling is thought to kick off a protective mechanism that activates mTOR, one of the key regulators of muscle growth. Anything you can do to increase your pump can have a marked effect on more muscle growth.

Exercise protocols recommended for maximum stimulation and muscle growth include higher rep workouts (2 - 3 sets of 15 - 20 reps with a 60 - 90 second rest) or medium rep sets with a shorter rest period (5 - 10 sets of 8 - 12 reps with a 30 - 60 second rest).

One of the key regulators of muscle pump and blood flow is a compound called Nitric Oxide or NO. Nitric Oxide is made in many tissues throughout the body and acts as a signalling molecule. One of it's main roles is to relax the linings of blood vessels (called Vasodilation) which causes the vessel diameter to increase and therefore allow greater blood flow. Human and animal studies have shown that increasing NO production can result in better blood flow, lower blood pressure, and increased athletic performance.

Studies have also shown that a number of foods and food derived compounds can naturally increase NO production, and hence performance.

The Science Behind MAX'S VASO-D PUMP’D

VASO D PUMP'D contains the following ingredients:

Agmatine Sulfate (500mg) - is a metabolite of L-Arginine. Agmatine operates directly on endothelial cells lining blood vessels to produce NO causing strong Vasodilation. Agmatine has also been shown to stimulate the release of Luteinizing Hormone (LH is a precursor to testosterone) and Growth Hormone (GH).

Glycerol Monostearate (500mg) - is a natural compound that increases the concentration of fluid in your blood and cells - known as Hyperhydration. Not only does GMS give you a great pump but studies show a marked increase in endurance and training output, particularly in hot weather. GMS has also been shown in multiple studies to increase power and muscle torque due to the mechanical advantage afforded by the increased intra and extracellular fluid.

Betaine Anhydrous (500mg) - has a similar effect to GMS, it helps to hydrate cells to increase muscle pump and exercise performance. Longer-term studies (6 weeks) with Betaine also show significant gains in power and lean mass.

Alpha GPC (L-Alpha Glycerylphosphorylcholine - 400mg) - is a phospholipid molecule used to build brain cell membranes. It is also a precursor for the important neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Alpha GPC has shown significant benefits to athletic performance by helping to maintain reaction time following exhaustive exercise. It has been shown to increase Growth Hormone release, strength, and muscle contraction force after just 6 days of supplementation.

CDP Choline (300mg) - Like Apla GPC, CDP Choline (cytidine diphosphate choline, or citicoline) is a precursor to acetylcholine, which is a key neurotransmitter and neuromodulator that helps regulate motivation, attention and even arousal. It has also been shown to improve reaction times, memory and lower cortisol. CDP Choline has a strong neural protective and recovery effect and is used to help manage and repair brain injury.

Cocoteanol (75mg) - is a new compound that combines Cocoa flavonols containing Theobromine with Camelia Sinensis Extract (green tea). Theobromine is an alkaloid that is structurally similar to caffeine and produces a strong cognitive benefit without the normal side effects of caffeine including jitters and sleeplessness. Theobromine is also a proven vasodilator and has been shown in studies to lower blood pressure. Green Tea Extract contains high levels of EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallate) and the amino acid L-Theanine. EGCG has been shown in studies to significantly boost cognitive performance, mood and energy. L-Theanine increases mental alertness and reduces the perception of fatigue.

Octopamine HCl (40mg) is a compound that functions as neurotransmitter and is closely related to noradrenaline. It acts on the Sympathetic nervous system to initiate the “fight or flight” response - in other words, it is a strong stimulant that readies your body for immediate action, both mentally and physically, making it ideal to use pre-workout. WARNING - Octopamine HCl is prohibited in competition by WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency). Athletes who compete in events covered by WADA rules should not VASO-D PUMP'D in training or competition.

Q. How should I take MAX'S VASO-D PUMP'D

VASO-D PUMP'D should be used before a workout to maximise blood flow to muscles and enhance your motivation and focus. On training days we recommend taking 3 capsules about 30 - 60 minutes before training.

Q. Does VASO-D PUMP'D contain any proprietary blends?

All MAX’S products are manufactured to the highest quality standards and give you full disclosure of all ingredients used so you know exactly how much of each active ingredient you are getting. We use the highest quality ingredients from reputable suppliers and in dosages that have been shown by studies to provide a clinical benefit for maximum results.

Q. I've heard that VASO-D PUMP'D contains ingredients that are on the banned WADA List. Is that true?

Yes, that is true. VASO-D PUMP'D contains an ingredient called Octopamine which is a banned stimulant by WADA. Athletes who compete in any competition or event that falls under WADA rules should not use VASO-D PUMP'D.

Q. Can I stack VASO-D PUMP'D with other supplements?

VASO-D PUMP'D is a cutting edge blood flow boosting and cognition formula but can be stacked with other MAX'S Lab Series products for a synergistic effect. We recommend stacking with MAX'S ATP LOAD'D to maximise muscular energy production. If you are training to strip body fat, you can also stack with MAX'S T-DEX RIPP'D.
