Antioxidant, reduce severity of illnesses, reduces blood pressure
Vitamin C has been known in study to help increase health and reduce the severity of illnesses. With the increased focus on the antioxidant capacity and potential for reducing arterial stiffness, the inclusion of Vitamin C in this formula serves to help improve overall health and reduce oxidative damage from the increased energy production.
Increases energy, increases sexual health, reduces heart disease (blood pressure, arterial stiffness, cholesterol levels, homocysteine levels)
As people age, their ability to absorb vitamin B12 decreases. A higher level of supplementation helps offset the inability to absorb. Studies are showing cyanocobalamin can help offset anemia (leading to fatigue) and other factors that often are associated with increased stress. It can help reduce levels of low to moderate anxiety and depression when supplemented in older populations.
Builds protein, Vasodilator, may help erectile dysfunction
A non-essential amino acid, the primary focus is to help build other proteins and aid in creating nitric oxide, thus increasing blood flow and regulating energy. It may also help heal injuries, aid kidneys in removing waste, and boost immune system function. A 2019 study showed 1.5 to 5–gram supplementation significantly improved erectile dysfunction. This supplement contains 750mg to offset potential adverse digestive effects found in the studies.
Boost NO production, may lower blood pressure, may reduce arterial stiffness, may reduce IBS, may help erectile dysfunction
Citrulline is a non-essential amino acid first found in the watermelon. It is not used to build proteins but is part of the urea cycle, which removes ammonia from the body. It helps widen blood vessels and may play a role in muscle building. After Citrulline is consumed, some converts to arginine, helping to increase protein synthesis by stimulating the signaling pathway involved in muscle building. It helps maintain erection hardness by increasing blood flow and tissue strength.
Reduces ammonia in the blood, reduces fatigue
L-Ornithine is a non-essential amino acid that is a rate–limiting step of the urea cycle, binding carbamoyl phosphate, which requires ammonia to be produced and then is converted into l–citrulline, giving off urea as a byproduct. It is included in this formula for the potential synergistic effect of pairing it with l-arginine, increasing blood flow, and other positive effects without increasing the risk of digestive side effects.
Longjack – Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia) –
Increases testosterone, reduces stress
Longjack, or Tongkat Ali, is the roots of the green shrub tree, Eurycoma longifolia, native to Southeast Asia, where they use it to treat malaria, infections, fevers, male infertility, and erectile dysfunction. Longjack contains constituents betacarbolines, quassinoids, canthinone alkaloids, squalene congeners, triterpenes, and neolignans. Longjack substantially increases testosterone and sexual arousal. Additionally, it helps reduce stress and may help increase fat loss in those who are exercising. Although the active ingredient has not been isolated yet, it is believed the combination produces the effects.
Horny Goat Weed (Epimedium grandiflorum) –
Increases sexual health, reduces joint pain, reduces fatigue, improves memory
The common name came from farmers noting their goats were more randy after grazing in fields filled with this herb. During an erection, nitric oxide signals cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), causing the smooth muscles near the penis to relax, resulting in an inflow of blood. With erectile dysfunction, protein phosphodiesterase type 5 (PDE5) enzyme blocks the nitric oxide and cGMP. Icariin, the active ingredient in horny goat weed, inhibits the activity of the PDE5 in the penis. This allows blood to fill the arteries in the penis and create an erection. The prescription medication sildenafil (Viagra) works in the same way. It can also be used for high blood pressure, hardening of the arteries, menopause, osteoporosis, brain injury, hay fever, and fatigue.
