Amperage - Non-Stim Pre-Workout Oil
Amp Your Performance
AMPERAGE is a formula designed to assist sports people in achieving specific nutritional or performance goals. This is a keto-friendly product that may be taken prior to exercise as an alternative to high-stim pre-workouts.
To achieve a healthy weight and when combined with calorie deficit and a proper exercise program, Amperage works via modulation of the PPAR receptors with essential fatty acids and promoting a healthy body composition[i].
Amperage is also an appetite suppressant between meals and a source of Omega 3,5,6,7 and 9 essential fatty acids.
It is advisable to take Amperage first thing in the morning before you hit the gym or exercise. After an 8-hour sleep, you haven’t eaten for hours and you are usually burning some fat for fuel, this is our best opportunity to stimulate fat burning if you exercise first thing in the morning. When used with an effective diet and exercise strategy, Amperage may assist you achieve your healthy body composition faster.[ii]
Amperage achieves this by the unique array of nutrients in the formula. These include:
CONJUGATED LINOLEIC ACID (CLA)
May assist in the release of fatty acids from stored fat cells and the burning of fatty acids in the mitochondria. Animal studies have found that CLA interacts to activate PPAR increasing the gene transcription related to lipolysis (fat breakdown), healthy functioning of mitochondrial and insulin, and collectively this enhances the release of free fatty acids and subsequent mitochondrial activation to metabolise the fatty acids.[iii]
POMEGRANATE SEED OIL
Aids in the regulation of a healthy body composition. Animal studies have found that supplementation with pomegranate seed oil - a rich source of punicic acid leads to the increase of cis-9, trans-11 CLA content in livers.[iv]
Peppermint oil may help with exercise performance when taken for 10 days[v]. Peppermint oil has demonstrated performance enhancing effects with a significant increase in the grip force (36.1%), standing vertical jump (7.0%), and standing long jump (6.4%).[vi]
Peppermint oil also tastes great and makes your stinky morning, fasting or Keto breath far less stinky, something everyone can be happy about.
GRAPEFRUIT ESSENTIAL OIL
Grapefruit essential oil has been found in invitro studies to help with a healthy body composition.[vii] Animal studies have found that the sent of grapefruit oil helps maintain a healthy body composition.[viii]
MEDIUM-CHAIN TRIGLYCERIDES (COCONUT OIL)
Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) bypass the block in long-chain fatty acid oxidation and provide an alternative faster energy substrate to exercising muscle. MCT are known to hydrolyse readily and completely to fatty acids and to be metabolized more easily by beta-oxidation than long-chain triglycerides. MCT differ from long-chain triglycerides as they are relatively soluble in water and hence rapidly hydrolysed into energy. Replacement of Long chain triglycerides with MCTs in the diet could potentially help with reductions in body weight and composition without adversely affecting lipid profiles.[ix]
Amperage can also be taken during the day to help you achieve a healthy body composition.
