Ape Sh*t Ingredients
- L-Citrulline (2.25g)
There’s no better feeling that getting a strong, powerful pump going during your workout. Something about those swollen muscle just makes you keep grinding away in the gym.
L-Citrulline is the premier nitric oxide elevating ingredient on the market. It’s found prevalently in the flesh and rind of watermelon, and vastly superior to the old favorite L-Arginine due to L-Citrulline’s higher bioavailability. With greater N.O. production, you’ll experience significantly greater vasodilation, vascularity, and best of all, PUMPS!
There’s more to L-Citrulline than just vein-gorging pumps though, it’s also an incredibly potent performance enhancer (“ergogenic”). Several research pieces have demonstrated that supplementing with L-Citrulline prior to training though enhances ATP production, boosts endurance, and increases lean body mass.
- Beta Alanine (1.6g)
Tired of burning out mid set and leaving gains in the gym? Then you need Beta Alanine!
When exercising, hydrogen (H+) ions accumulate in muscle tissue which drops the pH in your muscles leading to an acidic environment. Once this occurs, that painful “burning” sensation hits you like a Mack Truck and makes you stop your set early.
Beta Alanine beats back the burn, by increasing carnosine concentrations in your body. Higher levels of carnosine enhance your body’s buffering capacity to shuttle out those acidic ions, delaying that burning sensation, and increasing your capacity to train.
The end result is greater stamina, strength, and endurance. Something any athlete, not just weightlifters, can benefit from!
- Taurine (1g)
When you’re going Ape Sh*t in the gym, you’re bringing everything you got, and that inevitably means you’re sweating your ass off! While that’s a strong indication you’re pushing the limits, it’s also a sign that you’re losing valuable electrolytes need for hydration and muscle contraction!
To counter this, Ape Sh*t contains a full gram L-Taurine, a conditionally essential amino acid that functions as an osmolyte in the body. Taurine draws water into muscle cells, which improves your hydration and endurance. Plus, you’ll experience some nice water-based pumps to go along with the N.O.-fueled pumps of L-Citrulline!
There’s more though! Taurine is also a highly underrated focus booster, as vast reserves of taurine are found in the brain, where it serves to enhance cognition and attention.
- AgmaMAX™ Agmatine Sulfate (750mg)
Ready to double down on your N.O. production? That’s what you’ll get with the inclusion of AgmaMAX™ Agmatine Sulfate!
Agmatine is a powerful nitric oxide extender. What’s that mean?
Basically, Agmatine prolongs the effects of N.O. in the body by inhibiting arginase, the enzyme that degrades arginine (the amino acid responsible for N.O. production). Negating the effects of arginase keep Arginine levels elevated for longer periods of time leading to greater nitric oxide production. The end result is dense, hard, skin-tearing pumps!
While most products on the market use 500mg, at most, Untamed Labs includes 750mg per scoop (1.5g in 2 scoops!), which when paired with L-Citrulline gives a pump experience like you’ve never experienced before.
- Choline Bitartrate
Hitting the gym with unbridled aggression and rage is great, if it’s focused on a singular goal. Without focus, that aggression just turns you into the typical bro jerk who’s screaming and dropping weights all over the ground -- and NO ONE likes that guy.
Choline Bitartrate takes your aggression and funnels it into pure focus, so when you step in the gym you’re only concerned with breaking PRs. Choline increases levels of the learning transmitter acetylcholine, which effectively boosts focus, and more importantly creates a strong “mind-muscle connection”, so that you’re maximizing each and every rep for the best gains possible.
Caffeine is great for just about anything and everything! It picks you up when you’re low on energy, boosts your mood when you’re down in the dumps, and motivates you to get the job done! For these exact reasons, Untamed Labs has included a scientifically-formulated trifecta of caffeine to provide both immediate and long-lasting energy.
Caffeine Anhydrous provides the jumpstart you need to get going in the gym, and the addition of Caffeine Citrate and Infinergy™ Dicaffeine Malate serve to provide a sustained energy that carries you through even the longest workouts and into the hour after you finish training.
The unique combination of caffeine variants is what sets Ape Sh*t from any other pre workout on the market, and ensures there’s no crash, no headaches, no jitters -- just pure energy, focus, and motivation!
- Yohimbine HCl
Yohimbine is an incredibly powerful stimulant that when combined with caffeine gives Ape Sh*t an energy kick like you’ve never experienced before! Yohimbine is the active component of yohimbe extracted from Pausinystalia Yohimbe.
Yohimbine is an Alpha-2-Adrenergic receptor antagonist that works by increasing adrenaline and noradrenaline levels in the body, stimulating the “fight or flight” response, and thereby enhancing alertness, energy, and motivation. Yohimbine also supports fat burning by inhibiting a regulatory process in fat cells that not hinders fat burning.
Suffice it to say, Ape Sh*t wouldn’t have the same “get up and GO!” without the inclusion of this valuable “bonus” stimulant!
Ape Sh*t contains an additional form of choline in the form of Citicoline, a.k.a CDP-Choline. Citicoline is even more bioavailable than Choline Bitartrate, meaning you need less of a dose to get the same great effects!
Adding this form of choline on top of the bitartrate form further improves cognition, focus, and the always essential mind-muscle connection.This serves to further enhance your focus, cognition, and mind-muscle connection. Citicoline provides some “insurance” that your raw energy and aggression never goes to waste. You’re always on point and locked in!
- Huperzine A 1%
Whereas Choline Bitartrate and Citicoline function as direct boosters of acetylcholine in the body, Huperzine A works just a bit differently. Huperzine indirectly increases acetylcholine levels by sustaining the actions of acetylcholine in the body.
How is this?
Well, Huperzine inhibits acetylcholinesterase, the enzyme responsible for acetylcholine breakdown. Putting the brakes on acetylcholinesterase effectively increases the benefits of acetylcholine and prolongs its actions in the body.
The end result of all of this is laser-like focus during your workouts.
There’s more though! Huperzine also is a neuroprotectant as it defends against glutamine (the neuron death molecule), and supports the creation of new brain cells!
Consume 1-2 scoops with 8-10 oz of water 15-20 minutes prior to training to unleash your inner beast!
Time to Go Ape Sh*t!
