WHAT YOU NEED,
WHEN YOU NEED IT.
WARP-5™ is the only pre-workout supplement you will ever need. It not only provides explosive, long-lasting energy, but is formulated to support the ultimate workout experience, giving you what you need… when you need it.
WARP-5 is an innovative, ultra-highly concentrated, pre-workout nutritional supplement with no fillers and zero sugars. WARP-5 delivers critical nutrients to provide explosive and long lasting energy. Unlike many pre-workout formulas that are loaded with stimulants and excessive caffeine, WARP-5 has been biochemically engineered to assist focus and concentration, motivation, lean muscle development, body fat reduction and overall athletic performance. The key ingredients, Arginine Alpha-KetoGlutarate(AAKG), L-Citrulline, Di-Creatine Malate/Creatine Monohydrate, Beta-Alanine, Caffeine, N-Acetyl-Tyrosine, Fulvic Acid and Citrus Aurantium are precisely formulated to support the ultimate workout experience, and of course, the taste is amazing.
Argininie Alpha-KetoGlutarate(AAKG) contains arginine, a conditionally essential amino acid that has a number of vital roles in human biochemistry. Arginine plays a pivotal role in the urea cycle, helping to rid the body of excess ammonia. This amino acid is also important in muscle development as well assisting immune health. AAKG has arginine with alpha-ketoglutarate, another key player in amino acid metabolism, as well as in energy production. Two recent clinical investigations indicated that healthy men that supplemented with AAKG experienced benefits in strength and power as well as endurance and aerobic performance during a workout protocol.
Several studies have shown the ability of arginine to assist Nitric Oxide (NO) production. An increase in nitric oxide may aid healthy blood flow leading to extended and enhanced “muscle pumps” after training, better endurance, recovery time, workout capacity and libido.
L-Citrulline is a non-essential amino acid that is an important intermediate in the urea cycle, functioning along with Arginine and Ornithine to rid the body of ammonia, a byproduct of protein metabolism. Citrulline is a precursor of Arginine and as soon as citrulline enters the body it is readily converted into arginine. Research has indicated that heightened blood levels of arginine may lead to increased NO production which is necessary for the relaxation of blood vessels. NO plays a fundamental role in vascular function and blood flow. Citrulline therefore, not only supports detoxification pathways but also supports NO production and a healthy cardiovascular system.
As previously mentioned, Citrulline, like arginine, is important in vasodilation, the widening of blood vessels, resulting from relaxation of smooth muscle cells within the vessel walls, especially in the large arteries and veins and smaller arterioles. This results in a relaxing of the blood vessels and increased blood flow. The clinical finding suggests that citrulline and arginine supplementation is a natural and safe means of providing your body arginine, both short and long term. The combination may increase the natural production of nitric oxide, support cardiovascular, immune and heart health, as well as body composition and sexual health.
Creatine(monohydrate) is a nutrient that is naturally synthesized from the amino acids glycine, arginine and methionine inside the muscle cells. Clinical studies have repeatedly proven that taking creatine (monohydrate form) can increase muscle creatine and phosphocreatine concentrations. These increases with the muscle cells can lead to significant improvements in muscle energy, power output, strength and lean muscle gains.* Muscle Phosphocreatine is a high energy fuel source required and utilized for explosive bursts and energy during high intensity and anaerobic (resistance training) exercise. Athletes of all sports often recognize remarkable increases in muscle cell size, strength, faster recovery, reduced fatigue and blood sugar and cholesterol support.*
Dicreatine Malate is a unique form of Creatine Monohydrate. Creatine has already proven itself time and again when it comes to athletic performance. It is a crucial player in the production of Anaerobic Energy. It is believed that Dicreatine Malate is a more stable form for many creatine users. By binding Creatine to Malic acid, a more alkaline environment occurs which may enhance the absorption of Creatine within the digestive tract, leading to higher levels of Creatine in the blood to be then stored within muscle tissue.
Beta Alanine (3-aminopropanoicacid) is the rate-limiting precursor of carnosine. Supplementation with beta-alanine has been shown to increase the concentration of carnosine in muscles, decrease fatigue in athletes and increase total muscle workload. Supplementing with carnosine is not as effective as supplementing with beta-alanine alone since carnosine when taken by mouth, is simply broken down during digestion to its components, histidine, and beta-alanine. Recent investigations have suggested that beta-alanine supplementation may be effective at improving repeated high-intensity performance in both trained and non-trained individuals, indicating the efficacy of beta-alanine as an ergogenic aid for high-intensity exercise. Researchers have also reported higher training volumes and lower subjective feelings of fatigue in subjects when supplementing with beta-alanine. Beta-Alanine supports increased athletic performance and power, speeds recovery, as well as reduces muscle fatigue.
Caffeine is hands down, the best known legal stimulant in the world. Caffeine exerts its effects by interacting with the sympathetic nervous system, the branch of the nervous system that controls both arousal and metabolic rate through the release of epinephrine (adrenaline) and norepinephrine (noradrenaline). By stimulating the central nervous system and causing arousal, caffeine can be noticeably ergogenic during high-intensity exercise, such as weight training, especially when used only occasionally to enhance performance. Caffeine also has a powerful lipolytic effect, increasing the mobilization and therefore oxidation (burning) of body fat stores. This effect on fat use may also contribute to the performance enhancing effects caffeine exerts during long distance and endurance exercise events.
N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine(NAT) is modified from normal Tyrosine because it contains the addition of acetic acid. Scientists believe that the acetic group may help to increase the nutrients bioavailability so that it is better absorbed directly into the bloodstream. L-tyrosine is an essential amino acid that is important for the formation of epinephrine, norepinephrine, dopamine and serotonin, hormones which are depleted by stress, excessive exercise, nd certain drugs. Supplementing with NAT supports healthy tyrosine levels in the blood which can lead tonorepinephrine replenishment in the brain. Healthy neurotransmitter activity has shown to assist positive mental energy and is believed to enhance the feeling of well-being and motivation.
Current investigations have suggested that L-Tyrosine may also enhance athletic performance. L-Tyrosine is an important component of protein and helps form the bioactive factors vital to cellular growth and maintenance. It appears to assist in delaying fatigue during exercise by balancing the ratio of serotonin and dopamine levels. In addition, Tyrosine supplementation may also support blood flow and blood pressure health.
Fulvic Acid has been used for a wide variety of illnesses and conditions for many years. Various researches indicate that Fulvic acid supports antioxidant activity, a balance of inflammatory properties, stress reduction, immune health and overall well-being. Past clinical data support its use as a ‘revitalizer’,enhancing physical performance and relieving fatigue with enhanced production of ATP. Fulvic acid is believed to increase a cell’s ability to rid of toxins,therefore providing the cells with more efficient energy production.
Advantra Z® is the patented name for Citrus Aurantium bitter orange extract. Advantra Z promotes weight loss in a manner similar to the old day ephedra, but without side effects. Advantra Z contains 3 powerful citrus extract chemicals: synephrine, octopamine, and N-methyltyramine. Of Advantra Z’s 3 potent natural chemicals, synephrine exerts the strongest effects on fat burning. Studies have found synephrine is effective in stimulating lipolysis, the breakdown of fat.Only the B3 receptor promotes fat cell breakdown, the desired effect of bothephedra and Advantra Z. By activating only the B3 receptor, Advantra Z increases thermogenesis without causing the same side effects ephedra causes.
More than 30 research studies and scientific reviews support the efficacy and safety of bitter orange. Clinical efficacy studies have found that bitter orange and multi-ingredient supplements containing bitter orange produce an increase in resting metabolic rate, energy levels and are effective in inducing weight loss and reducing body fat more than diet and exercise alone – without causing adverse effects. Analyses of bitter orange’s safety have shown that this ingredient has no effect on blood pressure or heart rate and is unequivocally safe for human consumption.
WARP-5 is the only Pre-workout nutritional supplement you will ever need. It not only provides explosive, long-lasting energy, but it assists focus and motivation,muscle protection, strength and power and optimizes recovery. Best of all, it has an outstanding taste.
