2:1 Citrulline Malate is a key ingredient in the ALTIUS™ formulation, with each scoop containing a full clinically effective dose of 8 grams, the highest dose currently available on the market!
The most promising clinical research shows 8 grams to be the optimal dose used for maximum benefits, as much as 16x what you’ll find in most other pre-workout supplements.
Of particular significance to athletes is the higher plasma argnine levels attainable through Citrulline Malate consumption. This translates into enhanced nitric oxide (NO) production. Nitric oxide relaxes and widens blood vessels, and increases blood flow to muscle tissue. In effect this results in intense muscle pumps and peak performance in the gym. Citrulline Malate has been shown to increase nitric oxide levels better than the L-Arginine used in many supplements.
Citrulline Malate also removes lactic acid, ammonia and other endotoxins from working muscles, further amplifying peak workout performance. It also enhances ATP production during exercise, further enhancing muscular performance.
CITRULLINE MALATE BENEFITS IN A NUTSHELL:
- IMPROVES STRENGTH & POWER*
- INCREASES BLOOD FLOW TO THE MUSCLE*
- IMPROVES ATHLETIC ANAEROBIC PERFORMANCE*
- HELPS RELIEVE MUSCLE SORENESS*
- BOOSTS AEROBIC PERFORMANCE*
Creatine Monohydrate is a proven effective ingredient with hundreds of clinical studies on the vast amount of performance benefits:
- INCREASES STRENGTH & POWER*
- HELPS BUILD MUSCLE*
- BOOSTS ANAEROBIC ENDURANCE*
- HELPS REDUCE MUSCLE DAMAGE & SORENESS*
Despite the misleading marketing hype surrounding different types of “fancy” creatine forms, we defer to proven clinical research to reveal the truth: Creatine Monohydrate remains unchallenged in its ability to support significant boosts in muscle strength and power, as well as muscle growth.
- UP TO 15% INCREASED MAXIMUM POWER & ENDURANCE*
- UP TO 20% INCREASED POWER DURING INTERVAL TRAINING*
- UP TO 30% GAIN IN POWER AND ENERGY RELEASE IN SHORT-SPRINT RANGE*
- UP TO 15% GAIN IN POWER FOR SPRINT REPETITIONS*
There’s a considerable amount of clinical data available on Betaine Anhydrous (trimethylglycine), and its substantial performance enhancing benefits are encouraging. Some of the effects of Betaine include:
- HELPS BUILD LEAN MUSCLE MASS*
- INCREASES STRENGTH & POWER*
- INCREASES ENDURANCE*
- BOOSTS PROTEIN SYNTHESIS*
- BOOSTS HGH OUTPUT*
One study using a daily 2.5 gram dose of Betaine (the dose found in ALTIUS) resulted in a 4lb lean muscle gain, 7lb fat loss, and a 10% increase in arm size in just 6 weeks.*.
Another study using a 2.5 gram daily dose of Betaine resulted in an increase in bench press power by 20% and and increase in muscle force on the bench press by 25%.*
Beta-Alanine is a naturally occurring amino acid that is taken up by muscle tissue and converted into carnosine. As Beta-Alanine levels rise, carnosine levels also rise, leading to numerous performance benefits.
RESEARCH INDICATES THAT CARNOSINE:
- INCREASES STRENGTH AND POWER*
- ENHANCES ENDURANCE LEVELS*
- IMPROVES RECOVERY*
- STIMULATES FAT LOSS AND MUSCLE GROWTH*
Beta-Alanine may cause a temporary itching or tingling of the skin, it is very common and completely harmless.
One promising study on boxers using Beta-Alanine suggested that four weeks of supplementation increased their average punching power in the last 10 seconds of a round by 2000% more compared to the placebo group.
Expect to have more power towards the end of your workout and be able to lift heavier for longer. By being able to train heavier for longer, it’s certain that you will be able to pack on more lean muscle and increase your strength levels.
Alpha-GPC (Alpha-Glyceryl Phosphoryl Choline) boosts mood, improves brain function, and improves focus. It enhances the mind-muscle connection while training by increasing levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.*
ALPHA-GPC has also been shown in studies when consumed pre-exercise to increase post-workout serum growth hormone (GH) levels* Research indicates that ALPHA-GPC can increase muscle strength, power, and endurance.*
- ENHANCES MIND-MUSCLE CONNECTION*
- BOOSTS MOOD & FOCUS*
- INCREASES MUSCLE STRENGTH & POWER
- ENHANCES ENDURANCE*
- INCREASES POST WORKOUT GH LEVELS*
ALTIUS contains 325mg of Caffeine Anhydrous. Caffeine Anhydrous is a powerful stimulant that increases energy levels but also has been shown to increase muscle endurance and strength.
Methylcobalamin is unfortunately not the typical form of B12 found in most supplements. If you look closely at the label of most supplements using B12, you will notice that the B12 source is very likely going to be cyanocobalamin. Cyanocobalamin is a cheap synthetic form of B12 bound to a cyanide molecule.Many companies use cyanocobalamin because it’s up to 100 times cheaper than the superior form, Methylcobalamin.
We use Methylcobalamin, a far superior form of Vitamin B12 that the body can actually absorb effectively. We added Methylcobalamin because it stacks very well with Caffeine & ALPHA-GPC.
OTHER NOTABLE B12 BENEFITS INCLUDE:
- INCREASED ALERTNESS*
- ENHANCED ENERGY PRODUCTION*
- PROMOTES HEALTHY NERVOUS SYSTEM FUNCTION*
BioPerine® is Sabinsa’s patented black pepper extract. It was added to the formula to help ramp-up absorption. What’s the point of amazing ingredients if they don’t absorb fully? It contains standardized amounts of the active ingredient piperine. Clinical studies suggest that a 5mg dose of BioPerine® taken with other supplements increases the absorption of the other supplements by 30 to 2000 percent. ALTIUS contains 5mg of BioPerine.
