The Power That Moves Muscle
The researchers at Epic Nutrition looked at the physiological roadblocks that hinder the ability to train with true intensity — not just a mental perception of intensity — but true bone-wrenching intensity. An intensity that increases training load and muscle growth. The result? 5-TETRA, the World’s First Muscle Intensifier, a product specifically designed to take full advantage of every progressive overload training technique.
Make no mistake, effectively overloading active muscle, in addition, to increasing cellular fluid — like the way many “pump” products do — is the ONLY WAY you’ll attain your physique goals. And with 5-TETRA you’ll provide the raw substrates to generate maximum force, power and drive while maintaining the stamina to achieve more reps while simultaneously buffering lactic acid. The result is serious muscle density, the quality muscle tissue that supports rapid improvements in muscle belly size and structure, and the muscle mass that generates real strength, is critical for achieving a physique like none other. Not just a pumped muscle, but a solid, chiseled muscle.
5-TETRA contains patented and clinically tested Adenylpyrophosphoric Acid disodium to directly increase circulating levels of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy currency of the cell. This backbone ingredient of 5-TETRA also increases blood flow and circulation to efficiently enhance delivery of oxygen and nutrients to hard-working muscle cells. In addition, this stable and orally active form of Adenylpyrophosphoric Acid increases the removal of cellular waste and lactic acid. As you can see, this ingredient sets the stage to close the gap between our physical limitations and our end goals.
Cordyceps sinensis, an extremely popular compound in Chinese medicine has made notable inroads in modern sports nutrition. Rightfully so. Cordyceps extract increases ATP by supplying direct precursor, c-AMP, and also facilitates the use of body fat for energy.
Cordyceps sinensis is a potent herb that has been used for centuries in Chinese traditional medicine. It has several traditional uses, including treatment for asthma, increased physical performance and as an aphrodisiac. Cordyceps has been shown to improve athletic performance, to increase testosterone production in men and increase cAMP —the chemical messenger that triggers the release of stored fat into the bloodstream.
Cordyceps elicits a consistent increase in the ATP/ inorganic phosphate ratio. It is this ratio that signifies a higher energy state. This unique fungus from the Tibetan mountains has also been shown to enhance the ability to endure oxygen shortage by improving oxygen efficiency.
5-TETRA also contains pyruvate. Pyruvate, a popular dieting supplement, is well known as the primary beginning compound for the body’s powerful energy producing cycle, the Krebs cycle. Pyruvate allows for more efficient energy production during anaerobic activity and facilitates fatty acid and amino acid conversion into muscle energy. It also works synergistically with the other ingredients in 5-TETRA to increase overall production of ATP.
The final piece of this “equalizer” is Yohimbine HCl. A principal alkaloid in the extracts from the bark of Pausinystalia yohimbe, Yohimbine has been used pharmacologically to increase peripheral blood flow, increase testosterone production and to facilitate the use of stored body fat for energy.
And the unsung hero? NUTRATERIC™ coating is a specific form of delayed release technology that allows the molecular composition of a tablet to release specific compounds at a particular pH range. This specific range ensures that acid sensitive compounds are protected through their caustic journey through the stomach and into the basic small intestine. After the pill reaches the small intestine and a pH in the basic range, the NUTRATERIC coating sloughs off, thus liberating the compounds where they are then shuttled into circulation.
