Purus Labs Condense – Zero Creatine, Zero Crash, Clean Energy!Condense: Endurance Enhancing Pre-Workout!CONQUER YOUR WORKOUTConDense® pre workout supplement is a novel approach to pre workout performance and endurance enhancement. Instead of high dosages of stimulants masking ineffectiveness, ConDense® utilizes NO3-T® sodium nitrate technology proven by the University of Memphis to expand human performance capacity by aiding in an increase of nitric oxide levels, muscular energy and oxygen efficiency. In turn, a cascade of welcomed physiologically benefits can be experienced such as enhanced blood-flow, better nutrient absorption, and a overall reduction of exercise oxygen cost, allowing you to handle greater workloads (e.g. more weight) and exercise longer before exhaustion (e.g. more reps).Our pre-workout, ConDense®, is built to give you a clean energy boost with added nitrates to enhance blood flow and deliver essential nutrients to the muscles. No food coloring, no filler ingredients, just ingredients backed by scientific research, effectively dosed to aid you in the gym.NO3-T® sodium nitrateInorganic nitrates found in beets, spinach, etcincrease nitric oxide through a novel biological pathway, nitrate>nitrite>nitric oxide. Nitrates have been shown to be a powerful aerobic and anaerobic ergogenic aid by reducing the oxygen cost of exercise, translating into lower perceived exertion and/or a greater maximal workload capacity (1). Astonishingly, the increased work comes without an accompanying increase in blood-lactate, meaning your muscles actually become more energetically efficient. This increase in mitochondrial efficiency (P/O ratio) is due to the reduced cost of ATP (muscular currency) to produce muscular force.Beta alanineThis non-proteinogenic amino acid is a constituent of muscle-carnosine (beta-alanine-l-histidine), however, myocarnosine content has been shown to be significantly increased through beta alanine supplementation alone(2). Carnosine, which supplemental beta alanine enhances the muscular concentration of, helps stabilize muscular pH levels by buffering the hydrogen ions produced through intense exercise. Intuitively, this stacks nicely with nitrates as they synergistically work through different modalities to achieve the same endurance effect.Betaine AnhydrousBetaine, or trimethylglycine, is an interesting compound found in beetroot juice as it serves as an osmolyte (protecting cells against dehydration), an antioxidant, and a methyl group donor serving to lower homocysteine levels. Human performance studies involving betaine found it increases power and force performance measures amongst trained individuals and was elucidated through these exercise protocols: bench press throw, bench press force, squat force, and vertical jump power(3). Another larger study concluded betaine aided in high intensity anaerobic training, allowing individuals to achieve more squat repetitions at 75% of their 1-RM with more repetitions achieved at =90% peak power(4).CaffeineObviously, caffeine is a widely used and highly efficient aerobic and anaerobic performance stimulant. Its effects are as highly acute and pronounced as they are vast. Caffeine aids in improving cognition and alertness, antagonizing adenosine receptors, inhibiting phosphodiesterase (PDE), increasing epinephrine/norepinephrine/dopamine release, and enhancing intracellular sodium/potassium pump activity.ElectrolytesIonized salts are abundantly found within our bodies and serve the chief primary function of maintaining specific concentration and charge balances across cell membranes. We include the electrolytes sodium, potassium, and chloride within Condense™ pre workout supplement to aid in maintaining optimal hydration status and blood volume during strenuous physical activity thereby blunting a rise in cortisol and quickening recovery.Note: Manufacturers continually change product specifications.
