With the recent launch of AMPED™ Nitro, the most frequent questions are, 1) how it compares to AMPED Power and, 2) whether you should choose it over AMPED Power. As it turns out, the two preworkout products do have differences, and the right choice for you can depend on your needs.
Anyone who regularly runs or cycles long distances knows that the fuel used to support those activities can be just as important as the training itself. Many athletes are looking to support the correct fuel and training regimens even further with dietary supplementation to enhance their performance.
The nitrate-rich blend of fruits and vegetables found in AMPED™ NOx can help you power through any workout. Dr. Eric Gumpricht discusses how the benefits of AMPED NOx go beyond just athletic performance to support cardiovascular health, brain function, and general well-being.
In collaboration with Isagenix scientists, Arizona State University researchers have found that AMPED NOx increases nitric oxide bioavailability in healthy men. The researchers presented their findings during a poster session at the American Society for Nutrition’s annual meeting at Experimental Biology in Chicago on April 25, 2017.
National Nutrition Month is a great opportunity to discuss one of the most important heart healthy nutrients in your dietary arsenal: the long-chain, omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) from fish.
Your muscles use a fair amount of oxygen. But they’re no match for your brain. That’s why newer studies on vegetable nitrates for blood flow support are looking beyond athletic performance and evaluating brain health benefits.
In 2009, Michigan State researchers published a curious finding in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition – that people who had a diet high in leafy green vegetables consumed up to 5+ times (550 percent) more dietary nitrates than the average daily intake (1). Prior to the study, there was controversy over the role of nitrates in the diet and whether or not they were good for health.
Any athlete or person wanting to maximize their workouts knows the feeling of all-out exertion. Lifting weights until muscle failure, sprinting all-out for 100 meters, and simply going until you can’t go anymore are ways to increase exercise performance.
Your workouts can only be as intense as your body’s ability to deliver oxygen and nutrients to working muscles while removing waste products. The transport of these metabolic materials throughout your body comes down to your circulatory system.
Nitrates are compounds found in a variety of foods and are even produced by our own bodies. Most dietary nitrates are derived from vegetables, which soak up nitrogen from the soil and convert it to nitrates in vegetables. Since the complexities of dietary nitrates and their impact on performance can be confusing, we’re breaking down the science of dietary nitrates so that you can understand a little more about the benefits of eating more vegetables:
