Apollon Nutrition Hooligan 450g
A very strong pre-workout with a precisely composed composition. It increases strength, strengthens the body and increases the motivation to act. Recommended during intense workouts. Clear composition, no fillers, the best composition for maximized efficiency. The effect of the action hits fast and hard, dedicated to more advanced users. Apollon Nutrition is the brand of the year 2021 recommended by independent testers, created by athletes for athletes. It is known for its ingredient profile with a high content of stimulating ingredients, with an indication of the clarity of the composition of the products. The complex includes:
L-Citruliline - one scoop contains as much as 7g. Citrulline is a precursor to arginine, which can help in the so-called pump training, endurance and performance. At the same dose as arginine, it is more effective in increasing its amount in the body than arginine alone. A half of the measuring cup is sufficient, i.e. 3.5 g. Even with this amount, very desirable effects can be noted. It participates in the synthesis of nitric oxide (NO) and phosphocreatine as well as the oxygen metabolism of glucose, thus increasing the uptake of oxygen, glucose, amino acids and creatine and energy production by muscle cells. It reduces the concentration of lactic acid and ammonia in the muscles, thus allowing the body to recover energy faster by increasing the level of creatine phosphate and re-synthesizing ATP.
Beat - Alanine - 3.5g. Beta-Alanine buffers lactic acid, which in turn supports training endurance (reduction of muscle fatigue). The amount of 3.5 g is an amount balanced to achieve the intended effects. Beta-Alanine is especially helpful in intense short-term workouts such as weight lifting. Some people taking beta-alanine may notice a slight tingling sensation known as paraesthesia. The tingling sensation occurs because beta-alanine dilates the blood vessels, allowing more oxygen and blood to be delivered to the muscles.
Betaine HCL 98% - the amount in the supplement is 2.5g. Betaine anhydrous is an ingredient that supports energy production, improves the functioning of the nervous system and ensures better cell hydration. It gives the feeling of a muscle pump during training and body hydration (drawing water after being absorbed into the cell). Betaine stimulates the production of nitric oxide, which causes the expansion of blood vessels - this ensures better blood supply to the muscles and their nutrition.
L - Tyrosine - tyrosine is a precursor of dopamine and other catecholamines, which increases concentration, focus and improves memory. The 2g dose is quite a large dose which maximizes the effects, but does not cause side effects. Tyrosine also improves the fat burning process, increases resistance to stress (intense workouts are a stressful element in the lives of athletes). It affects the metabolism by increasing the production of energy from adipose tissue.
Agmatine Sulphate, the dose in the supplement is 1500 mg. It is a metabolite of arginine, which means that it increases the level of nitric oxide (NO) in the muscles. An increase in nitric oxide means an increase in blood flow to the muscles. Thus, the muscles are nourished and protein synthesis is intensified. Agmatine can inhibit N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) and nicotinic acetylcholine receptors. Research suggests that agmatine acts on a subclass of glutamate receptors that regulate pain perception by reducing inflammation and neuronal activity. Agmatine reduces the plasticity of neurons and also interacts with opioid receptors. In addition, it reduces the level of cortisol - the stress hormone (prevents muscle breakdown). It also influences the release of such hormones as epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine, which reduce stress and increase energy levels in the body. Research shows that agmatine can activate imidazoline receptors, helping to lower blood glucose levels while increasing endorphin production.
Lion's Mane - supplement dose - 1000 mg. Lion's Mane is a Hericium mushroom extract that is gaining popularity in the field of nootropics. It has an immune system stimulating effect, inhibits inflammatory reactions and increases the synthesis of nitric oxide. In addition, the antioxidant properties of fungi play an important role in the prevention or treatment of cancer. In addition, it demonstrates antidepressant and anxiolytic properties. Active ingredients present in the mushroom (erinacin) stimulate the production of nerve growth factor (NGF), which ensures the growth of neurons. What's more, it effectively increases the remineralization of the nerve sheaths, and soothes depression and anxiety. Lion's Mane extract reduces the concentration of bad LDL cholesterol, supports the production of interferons responsible for the growth of white blood cells in the body, thereby strengthening the body's immune system.
Alpha GPC - is a form of choline with high bioavailability, the dose in the supplement is 600 mg. Alpha GPC is converted into acetylcholine in the brain, which is a neurotransmitter that supports the development of cognitive functions, and also positively influences the improvement of memory. Alpha GPC is part of cell membranes in the brain and other tissues of the body. Increased levels of acetylcholine translate into better memory and concentration. Alpha-GPC activates the parasympathetic (relaxing, sedative) system, increases the level of GABA (inhibitory neurotransmitter) and growth hormone (GH, regenerating hormone), reduces adrenergic (sympathetic) activity, thus reducing the effects of stress and irritation. It has a calming, anti-stress and relaxing effect. Supports the regeneration of the nervous system.
Caffeine Anhydrous - in the amount of 650 mg, increased dose per serving. Used in the case of people with high caffeine tolerance, beginners are recommended to reduce the dose to 200 mg and observe the body for the amount used. Anhydrous caffeine works fast. It reduces the feeling of fatigue, increases alertness and concentration. Its advantage is its thermogenic effect, which accelerates fat burning.
Di-Caffeine Malate - 200 mg of caffeine, which is released over time. It stimulates the central nervous system and the vegetative centers: respiratory, vasomotor and vagus nerve. It also shows an excellent thermogenic effect, significantly increasing the metabolic rate. It evenly stimulates the cerebral cortex, which means increasing thinking efficiency and preventing fatigue. What's more, it stimulates the release of fatty acids into the bloodstream, which is why it is considered one of the ingredients that accelerate slimming.
Theobromine - 300 mg per serving. Theobromine is part of the xanthine family, meaning it is similar to caffeine. Its action is much milder than caffeine, it can increase energy without increasing blood pressure. In combination with caffeine, it has a thermogenic effect - accelerating fat burning. In addition, it allows you to get rid of excess water from the body through diuretic action.
Himalayan Pink Salt - 250 mg. It is an ingredient that can be found more and more often in pre-workouts. It supports the hydration of the body, and its proper hydration is very important for efficiency and the feeling of "pump". It strengthens and detoxifies the body by eliminating toxins and balancing the body's pH.
Rhodiola Rosea - mountain rose in the amount of 200 mg, classified as an adaptogen. Rhodiola is one of the more underrated ingredients on the market and can help you fight fatigue, anxiety and depression. It shows a strengthening effect on the general psychophysical state in the period of increased mental work. The plant belongs to the so-called adaptogens has a mild effect and is safe to use. The plant increases serotonin, has a beneficial effect on improving mood and regeneration.
ElevATP®- 150mg, is a registered trademark ingredient that helps with the production of ATP. ATP is the energy "currency" of the body's cells, which means that it is a key ingredient in increasing the body's efficiency.
AstraGin®- 50mg, is a registered trademark ingredient that can aid in the absorption of nutrients by increasing the sensitivity of tissues to insulin. It lowers blood sugar levels. In addition, the supplement contains calcium, folate and vitamins B6, B3 and B12.
Dosage - 1 scoop dissolved in water 30 minutes before training - for advanced people. It is recommended to start by dosing half of the measure or 1/3 of the measure in order to check the body and its reaction to the product.
