NITROSIGINE (ARGININE INOSITOL SILICATE)
This patented complex of bonded arginine and silicon can help enhance performance with unique benefits important to physique training. Nitrosigine is scientifically engineered to last up to 6 hours and is proven to accelerate nitric oxide levels and increase hyperemia (increased blood flow).
Most "nitric oxide boosting” ingredients don’t actually increase arterial diameter, which is what increases blood flow and subsequently causes that "pump” feeling. Nitrosigine, on the other hand, is clinically proven to do this in multiple studies.
This novel arginine derivative was specifically spec’d into EVP XTREME . The reason being, it supports a strong pump.* It works by binding to the alpha2-adrenergic and imidazole receptors of endothelial cells increasing nitric oxide (NO) production which may assist in volumizing blood vessels.* Agmatine has become one of the must have "pump agents” in many pre-workouts, which is why we use 1,000mg per serving.
When building a true pre-workout that can increase power and strength we use creatine to help maximize this effect. We chose creatine anhydrous because it is virtually identical to creatine monohydrate except it doesn’t have the additional water molecule (monohydrate). It also provides slightly more creatine than creatine monohydrate on a gram-per-gram basis and offers better solubility.
BETA-ALANINE (AS CARNOSYN)
One great thing about Evogen Nutrition is that we listen to our customers. Studies show that Beta-Alanine helps increase the buffering capacity of working muscle, fights off acidosis, delays fatigue, and increases endurance capacity. You all wanted a transparent dose of beta-alanine in your EVP that is absorbable. We really couldn’t argue with that or the science, so we added a precise dose of beta-alanine that compliments the correct dosing protocols in clinical research. We used an amount backed by scientific studies and didn’t overdoes the ingredient, which can be wasteful and counterproductive. You asked, and we listened.
Choline itself has a wealth of health and wellness benefits, but we use it in EVP XTREME for a few key reasons. Choline bitartrate is a precursor to acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter involved in numerous processes involving exercise. Two of the most important processes related to acetylcholine are skeletal muscle innervation and muscle control. Acetylcholine is also linked to increased vigor during strenuous exercise, and extra choline is necessary to prevent acetylcholine fatigue. In the EVP XTREME formula, choline bitartrate helps create a balanced stimulant "feel” so you can train harder and longer.
PAUSINYSTALIA YOHIMBE EXTRACT
This West African herb has long been used as an aphrodisiac, but also has use in stimulant thermogenic products. Yohimbe may act as an adrenergic receptor agonist, inducing fight or flight responses in the body, such as lipolysis. This powerful extract packs a punch and compliments the EVP XTREME formula quite well.
Caffeine has been scientifically shown to enhance energy and thermogenesis. Clinical research also suggests it enhances athletic activity which supports its use in many sports nutrition pre-workout products. Newer research suggests that caffeine not only supports high output exercise but also endurance.*
EVP XTREME uses the widely studied anhydrous form of caffeine which many research studies have utilized when testing performance in athletes. Since EVP XTREME is designed for bodybuilders and athletes from all walks of life, it was the perfect fit for this masterful formula.
HUPERZINE SERRATA EXTRACT
This ancient extract contains bioactive components, such as huperzine A, that have shown to have a profound nootropic effect on focus. It’s acetylcholinesterase inhibition allows for other ingredients such as choline bitartrate to have a more pronounced effect due to inhibitory effect on choline metabolism.
PIPER NIGRUM EXTRACT (AS BIOPERINE)
When coming up with such an advanced formula, we wanted to make sure many of the natural components have optimal absorption. Bioperine is the "must have” bioavailability enhancer in the supplement world and we use the clinically researched dose in every scoop of EVP XTREME. It’s a highly potent extract of Piper nigrum which is standardized for a component called piperine. This revolutionary compound enhances bioavailability by interacting with the ultrastructure of intestinal brush border and stimulating digestive enzymes.
