WHAT IS SUPER PUMP?
SUPER PUMP is the ultimate pre-workout drink for helping increase muscle growth and strength in the gym. Push the limits of your training from your very first dose. Experience endless energy, build more muscle, lift more weight, and boost stamina so you can maximize your workouts.
SUPER PUMP features over 10,000 mg of active ingredients per serving and is available in delicious Cherry and Watermelon flavors! Even better, SUPER PUMP is sugar-free and aspartame-free!
Benefits of SUPER PUMP
SUPER PUMP is formulated with the most efficacious performance-enhancing ingredients in doses that are backed by scientific research and clinical trials.
These ingredients work in synergy to propel your workouts and take your fitness results to the next level. Here’s an overview of the benefits of each ingredient in SUPER PUMP:
Beta-alanine is the rate-limiting amino acid for the dipeptide carnosine - a key molecule that buffers muscle cells. Research shows that supplementing with beta-alanine significantly increases intracellular muscle carnosine values, leading to more strength & power, more endurance, better recovery, more muscle growth & improved fat loss.1
- L-Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate (AKG)
L-arginine AKG is a highly bioavailable form of L-arginine - the amino acid that your body uses to synthesize nitric oxide (NO). Supplementing with L-arginine is ideal pre-workout since it helps to dilate and relax blood vessels, promoting better blood flow and muscular pumps while you train.2
- L-Citrulline Malate
Similar to L-arginine AKG, L-citrulline enhances nitric oxide (NO) production, thereby driving muscular pumps, boosting endurance, increasing strength, and reducing fatigue.3 Citrulline is also synergistic with other ingredients in SUPER PUMP, particularly L-leucine and L-arginine AKG, further boosting the overall benefits of this formula.
Taurine is an amino acid that is typically not abundant in the diet, but it plays a big role in athletic and mental performance. Studies have shown that consuming taurine rapidly boosts strength & power capacity as well as cellular hydration, and it even supports cognitive function and reduces oxidative stress in neurons.4
L-carnitine is a quaternary ammonium compound that is essential for supporting the uptake and oxidation of fats in mitochondria.5 If you’re lacking L-carnitine, it becomes much harder to produce energy from fatty acids and lose body fat, since fats (aside from medium-chain triglycerides) can’t cross the mitochondrial membrane on their own.
L-leucine is the most essential of all amino acids, being the key to activating muscle protein synthesis and switching off muscle protein breakdown.6 Hence, taking L-leucine before training helps ensure that you stay anabolic and maximize your muscle building results.
- Caffeine & L-Tyrosine
Caffeine and L-tyrosine work synergistically to increase the levels of dopamine, adrenaline, and noradrenaline in the central nervous system.7,8 In turn, these serve as some of the best ingredients for increasing mental performance and motivation prior to hitting the gym.
What Makes HS Labs Super Pump the Best Preworkout Supplement?
Supplements are always evolving and it’s certainly wise to try out new products if you feel that there is a potential benefit for you, but remember that the tried and true ingredients never change. This is SUPER PUMP is the best preworkout supplement, since it is was formulated based on science and research rather than word-of-mouth and conjecture.
Also, just because a supplement contains a greater number of ingredients doesn’t mean it will produce more benefits. Many companies “label dress” their products by incorporating many ingredients in tiny amounts, so the end result is lackluster.
