Ergonine by PES
ERGONINE…9 ingredients with proven or potential ergogenic/myogenic aids. And we’ve taken these 9 ingredients and supercharged them, and combined them to create a truly supreme product at an unbelievable value. How do we do it? AthletixSports.com/TheDifference tells the story.
You’ve probably heard the term “staple supplement.” This essentially means your “bread and butter” supplements, the ones that have stood the test of time and have been shown in countless studies to yield a positive effect. You take your staple supplements on a daily basis in an effort to continue reaching your goals and breaking personal records. They never leave…they travel with you on vacation and you nearly have a breakdown when you forget to take them. ERGONINE is your premium formulated staple.
There aren’t just one or two staple supplements. There’s a whole handful…and then there’s some new kids on the block that you may not know you need to be taking every day. You see with so many different, often nasty-tasting powders to scarf down on a daily basis, people miss servings, lack consistency, and ultimately fail to benefit from these time-tested supplements. Or worse, you end up buying 9 products that each cost $30 each in order to get all the ingredients you are looking for, and you are paying for 20 ingredients that you didn’t want! That is, until Ergonine.
ERGONINE brings you the first ever NINE-IN-ONE foundational supplement product, a true daily ergogenic aid. No BS & trusted, effective, and all in a single product. A single scoop of Ergonine provides full servings of everything you need. Simply put, Ergonine is the foundation of every supplement stack you ever decide to use.
It looks like there’s a new contender in the strength and size department: Betaine Anhydrous. This exciting compound only recently came to researchers’ attention as they found it increases strength and muscle mass in a manner very similar to creatine when combined with exercise: by actively providing energy to your muscle cells.
In addition to this, betaine shares other effects with creatine: it reduces lactate production, it increases power output and explosiveness, it improves endurance, and it delays fatigue in trained subjects [10-13]. Betaine even creates a positive hormone environment by lowering the catabolic hormone cortisol . And as you guessed, we used the 2.5 grams, the exact amount studied extensively in humans for all of these effects.
Glycerol products are well known for their ability to induce all day pumps and fullness, making you look and feel great inside and outside the gym.
Its purpose in ERGONINE is simple…The mechanism by which glycerol works synergizes perfectly with creatine and betaine anhydrous. On top of that…who doesn’t want to feel like their muscles are full all day?! Unfortunately, the glycerol products that are currently out there use glycerol monostearate, which is roughly ¼ glycerol and ¾ gunky saturated fat that clogs your shaker.
HydroMAX is the new age of glycerol, introducing a much higher potency of glycerol that is closer to roughly ¾ glycerol by weight!
L-carnitine, like L-glutamine, is another staple supplement that has been used for decades by bodybuilders. Unfortunately, studies on regular L-carnitine have found it ineffective in improving fat loss, even when combined with exercise . Something was missing… Like SynerGlut before it, we found a way to finally make L-carnitine useful…and better: the answer is L-Carnitine-L-Tartrate (LCLT). LCLT is an amazing recovery aid, and it aids recovery through multiple angles. First, it reduces muscle catabolism and destruction as evidenced by muscle markers of damage [23, 32]. Next, it reduces lactate production by increasing oxygen delivery to muscle, which should result in reduced soreness by preventing acidosis.
As many of you know, glutamine has long been touted as the ultimate recovery amino acid since it is the most plentiful amino acid in muscle tissue. And yet, countless studies have shown that glutamine has no effect on muscle recovery; it’s nothing more than a placebo when taken as plain old L-Glutamine! [15,16]
This result came as a major shock to myself and many others, so I asked the ever elusive question: why does glutamine not work? The answer lies in the fact that glutamine is the primary amino acid that feeds the cells of your gut, so your intestines consume all the glutamine before they ever reach your muscles.
After over a year of research, we’ve found a novel way to bypass this problem. By consuming L-glutamine with L-alanine, glutamine delivery to muscle tissue is massively increased, and the recovery pathways can finally have potential [17-19]. And it doesn’t matter whether or not the glutamine is bonded to alanine as a dipeptide; combining L-glutamine with L-alanine in a blend has shown to be equally effective in mammals…and this is precisely what we do.
You may recognize choline as a stimulant-free ingredient that increases focus and alertness by converting to acetylcholine in the body. But its inclusion in ERGONINE isn’t to enhance mental strength.
Rather, brand new data shows that in humans, choline has the ability to induce fat loss while supporting health and exercise performance.
Like LCLT, choline plays a vital role in exercise performance even if fat loss isn’t your goal. For instance, exercise depletes choline stores which results in diminished physical performance. Heavy exercise can also deplete critical neurotransmitters for mood and energy levels, which is why you may often feel drained at the end of a heavy workout. Choline doubles up as a performance enhancer by keeping mood and energy levels stable during longer workouts and athletic events .
This is definitely something you want to take every day.
So Choline Bitartrate is a great ingredient in and of itself...but at Athletix, we don’t just toss promising ingredients together. We Formulate
You see, choline displays special synergy with the LCLT we mentioned above. Choline significantly reduces the amount of excreted carnitine so you get way more bang for your buck with each carnitine serving, and the net result is reduced body fat and increased levels of the fat burning hormone leptin [27,28].
So LCLT burns fat, choline burns fat…and when combined, they show synergy…1+1=3 Methylation Domination – A novel approach to performance enhancement
Methylation is a vital process in the body and may enhance exercise performance . In fact, just for your body to make two of the ingredients mentioned above (creatine and carnitine), a methyl group must be “donated” from one molecule (the “donor”) to another molecule (the “recipient”).
n the case of creatine and carnitine, supplementing with methyl donors may help boost your body’s production of the two compounds. What this means is that you’ll be supplementing with creatine and carnitine, but you’ll also be putting your body in a position to make more of them yourself.
Again, we don’t just throw ingredients together…we formulate.
And so it was no coincidence that we elected to use betaine anhydrous and choline bitartrate in the formula, because both ingredients are among the most potent natural methyl donors .
Continuing our trend of taking fan favorite ingredients and providing you with more effective alternative forms, we’ve taken leucine, the key branched chain amino acid (BCAA) for muscle growth, and simplified it to its most metabolically active metabolite: HICA.
HICA, also known as Leucic Acid or Alpha-Hydroxy-Isocaproic Acid has been shown in elite athletes to increase muscle mass, reduce fat mass, reduce soreness, and improve performance. All at a dose of 1.5 grams…the exact dose we use in ERGONINE .
Athletix is bringing you a totally novel, human-proven compound: ferulic acid. Ferulic acid has been known, in the murine model, to jack up exercise capacity [29,30]. Just 30 mg Ferulic Acid a day in well-trained weightlifters is enough to significantly enhance muscle mass, increase strength, and improve recovery. And it does this with a unique mechanism unlike any other compound in ERGONINE, allowing you to hit muscle growth and performance enhancement from all angles.
This is the novel cherry on top of the most complete and proven formula you’ve ever used.
