ANS Performance RITUAL
Ritual is REBORN!
Nearly a 10 years ago, RITUAL changed the pre-workout game forever. The first clinically dosed formula that caused the entire industry to take notice, and now RITUAL is reborn!
RITUAL PERFORMANCE PROTOCOL
Citrulline: The 'pump' amino acid, L-Citrulline has been clinically researched to enhance nitric oxide levels better than arginine. Studies suggest that citrulline increases the rate of ATP synthesis during exercise and greater phosphocreatine recovery after exercise. Citrulline also reduces lactic acid and ammonia levels, which leads to better muscle performance and increased endurance.
Beta-Alanine: A non-essential amino acid, beta-alanine combines with the amino acid histidine to form carnosine. In muscle cells carnosine buffers against the hydronium ions and lactic acid which form during exercise and can lead to muscle fatigue. Supplementation with beta-alanine can improve strength, endurance and enhance recovery. Each scoop of RITUAL™ pre-workout supplement contains 1.6g of beta-alanine.
Betaine Anhydrous: Also known as trimethylglycine (TMG), this amino acid analogue helps reduce homocysteine levels in the body and stimulates production of creatine in muscle cells. TMG can act as a methyl donor and prevent dehydration of cells. As a supplement TMG can also amplify power output and training volume.
Taurine: Taurine has several physical and mental benefits including enhanced cognition, as well as improved aerobic and anaerobic performance. By maintaining proper taurine levels, one can increase muscle strength, enhance power, reduce muscle damage caused by exercise and accelerate recovery between workouts.
RITUAL FOCAL ENERGY MATRIX
Choline Bitartrate: is a great source of choline, a key precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine - the key signaling molecule that stimulates muscle contraction, which supports muscle movement and performance. The brain also uses acetylcholine communicate between it's cells - choline is critical for cognition, memory, sleep and maintenance of physical balance, stability and mobility.
Caffeine: Caffeine is a powerful mental stimulant. It combats fatigue and can promote increase alertness and energy levels.
L-Theanine:found in green tea, provides a calming influence over what can be a harsh edge to a caffeine-induced ‘energy rush’. It blunts the crash and at the same time enhances mental focus, mood and memory.
Theobromine: Theobromine is a natural compound present in cocoa products, responsible for the sensation of improved mood increased blood flow which supports enhanced muscle function and recovery during and after exercise.
Dicaffeine malate:can increase focus, energy, and metabolism while decreasing perceived fatigue similar to regular caffeine, but with the unique advantage of a more prolonged effect without a crash. Together with caffeine, it works well to create an immediate and sustained energy pairing.
Xanthosyn™: This proprietary potent extract of xanthones, a family of compounds which have been shown to elevate mental & physical performance as well as energy.
