What does this mean for you?
You get all the positives that a pre workout should deliver, clean energy, muscle pumps, and killer focus, without the bad side effects such as headaches from increased blood pressure, insomnia, energy crash etc etc.
No-XL is the result of years of research and is the latest step forward in pre workout supplementation evolution. The first "pre workouts" hit the supplement market around the year 2004 the sports supplement industry took leaping steps forward with the release of a new class of supplements known as Nitric oxide boosters. Fast forward a couple of years, and these powerful supplements seemingly made a transition to become "Pre workout" drinks; the evolutionary change was to combine NO boosters with high powered stimulants, designed to be consumed “pre workout”.
This was where the supplement science started to break down; most of these pre workout stimulants were actually nitric oxide antagonists, restricting the effects of NO. Cancel out the vasodilating effects of nitric oxide and you are simply left with a stimulant rush only. This proved to be a waste of money, and also very counter productive for anyone who worked out in the evening.
High levels of stimulants taken late in the day interfere with normal sleeping patterns; stimulatory effects lasting till the early hours of the morning preventing sleep. The evening pre workout supplement user is left with a massive shortfall in sleep, feeling tired and relying on caffeine and other such stimulants to wake up and make it through the day, quickly forming a continual and vicious cycle of "being tired on stimulants". Not a good scenario.
Right now the pre workout way has been forged by DNA Lean® NO-XL™. A pre workout with a difference; a functional pre workout which isn't all about stimulants.

NO Opti-Max fusion™ This complex of ingredients is aimed at providing the best possible nitric oxide surge. Nitric oxide increases vasodilation (expansion of blood vessels), enabling an increase in uptake of oxygen and vital anabolic nutrients, giving rise to more efficient nutrient delivery, literally force feeding your muscles while you work out. Vasodilation from nitric oxide will also result in increased muscle pumps and vascularity. If you have ever left the gym without a pump you will know how disappointing this is, with NO-XL™ this isn't going to happen!

Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide)
Niacin is known for its "flushing" effects, take too much of it and you may find yourself as red as a beetroot and feeling your skin tingling all over. This "flushing" effect is in no way dangerous; it is quite normal and is a product of the vasodilation effects of niacin as it helps open up and expand blood vessels and capilliaries all over your body. Expansion of blood vessels and capillaries is going to help promote nutrient delivery, anti-fatigue, and getting a great pump. In DNA Lean® NO-XL™ we have just the right dosage of Niacin that will deliver all the benefits without the "flushing".
Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin)
The water soluble Vitamin B12 plays an incredibly important role in sports nutrition for any athlete; Vitamin B12 is responsible for erythropoiesis (formation of red blood cells). Red blood cells transport oxygen to muscle cells, run out of oxygen and your muscles are kaput! That's why DNA Lean® NO-XL™ has a whopping 200 mgs of Vitamin B12 to help support red blood cell generation and optimal performance.
Citrulline malate is an amino acid that helps boost nitric oxide (NO) production. Nitric oxide is every athletes dream supplement, this stuff expands blood vessels (vasidilation) like hot air baloons, allowing for great muscle pumps (hyperemia) and increased vascularity. Due to the vasidilation effects of nitric oxide, oxygen and other nutrients can more efficiently be delivered to your muscles; conversely waste products are also removed more efficiently. Get the jist? Boost NO and you are going to get a great workout. Most pre workout and nitric oxide supplements increase NO via the amino acid L-Arginine. L- Arginine does boost nitric oxide; however Arginine is no where near as efficient as Citrulline for boosting NO. L-Arginine is broken down after ingestion by the liver enzyme arginase and therefore only results in a marginal increase in nitric oxide. In contrast Citrulline malate passes through the liver and digestive system without being affected by the arginase enzyme. Citrulline then hits the kidneys where it is metabolised into Arginine, which then can be used without degradation to make NO. Citrulline malate is useful in another way, by providing a molecule of malate; this "krebs intermediate" is used in part of the cellular energy yielding process of ATP production and thus further enhances the effects on NO-XL by providing a sustained production of energy to fuel each and every rep of your workout.
Hydromax® glycerol is a new and improved muscle "pump-inducing" glycerol supplement, used pre workout to enhance training and increase muscle volume. Hydromax has an osomotic effect; shifting solvent molecules through biological selectively permeable membranes and thus aiding the balance of intracellular muscle volume. In lay terms, Hydromax® keeps your muscles full, hydrated, pumped to the max and ready for battle!
L-Norvaline is an amino acid, actually an "unbranched-chained" version of the "branched-chain" amino acid, Valine. Although L-Norvaline does not directly create or convert to Nitric oxide, it does however provide another pathway to help increase nitric oxide, by inhibiting the arginase enzyme. Inhibiting arginase provides a much more efficient conversion process, allowing arginine to boost NO. Now combine this with citrulline, you are going to experience a surge of nitric oxide like never before, leading to the most powerful muscle pumps! Here come NO-XL!
Ginkgo Biloba is extracted from the the leaves of the Ginkgo tree and contains phytonutrients called flavonoid glycosides. Due to its chemical substrates Ginkgo has many useful properties including improved blood flow, circulation, and has also been shown to combat free radicals to help prevent oxidative damage. Ginkgo Biloba has been shown to improve blood circulation to various tissues; the skin, brain, hands, feet and legs. Ginkgo is also a potent antioxidant and can have significant anti-inflammatory effects. Increased circulation and blood flow along with its anti inflammatory effects are why we stacked Ginkgo with Citrulline, Agmatine and Norvalline leaving no stone unturned in this revolutionary nitric oxide preworkout formula.
Ginseng is a flowering perrineal plant which flourishes in cooler climates such as eastern asia and north america. The roots of Ginseng have been used in aryuvedic medicines for thousands of years in various preparations such as teas and tonics. There are eleven different species of Ginseng; Panax Ginseng is an adaptogen and differs significantly from its other relatives. Ginsenosides or Panaxosides are two compounds specific to Panax Ginseng and are routinely used to help improve cognitive function, mental focus, memory, physical and athletic performance.
Taurine is referred to as an amino acid; technically taurine in an amino sulfonic acid, different to a regular amino acid in that it lacks the regular carboxyl (COOH) functional group. Taurine is found in many foods that are commonly eaten, such as meat, fish and other high protein foods. Its biochemical properties stretch far and wide; studies show Taurine is good for, but not limited to, balancing cholesterol levels, supporting physical performance and can even help with cardiovascular function. The reason it's been put in to DNA Lean® NO-XL™ is to help promote your mental focus. Due to its molecular structure Taurine can pass the blood brain barrier; when Taurine has entered the brain it can act to influence neurotransmitters - promoting the type of mental focus you need to train at your best! Focus is everything!
N-acetyl Tyrosine is an amino acid; a variation of regular Tyrosine with an added acetyl (CH3 CO) functional group. Due to its molecular structure, n-acetyl Tyrosine is able to pass through the blood brain barrier; once in the brain it can help increase levels of the neurotransmitter l-dopamine. Due to its influence of neurotransmitters, N-acetyl Tyrosine is used to improve a variety of conditions, such attention deficit disorder, and is also used to aid memory function. We added it to DNA Lean® NO-XL™ to promote the type focus and concentration that cant be broken!
Holy Basil (Ocimum tenuiflorum) Leaf
Not to be confused with regular basil you can buy from schwartz, being very distinct from other flavours of basil due to its potent aromatic smell. Holy basil has its roots based firmly in india and has become "holy" due to its use in Hindu ceremonies. Aside from its religious uses, holy basil has been used for centuries in Ayurveda to aleviate various ailments. Different parts of the plant have been shown to contain different phytonutrients and substrates each having their own therapeutic uses; studies have shown that extracts of the Holy Basil leaves can have a nootropic effect, hence why we chose to include it in DNA Lean® NO-XL™; to promote the type of mental focus you need to get through a hardcore workout.
Beta Alanine is a naturally occouring amino acid found in meat and poultry - especially high in Turkey. Although the Beta form of Alanine is not one of the "building blocks" of skeletal muscle tissue, it does have a very useful role in sports nutrition. Beta alanine is a pre cursor to carnosine. Carnosine can help athletic performance by buffering lactic acid levels. When your muscles are spent from a hard workout, you may experience a "burning" sensation deep within your muscles. This is due to the production of lactic acid, a byproduct of burning energy during your workout. Lactic acid will really hinder the performance of your muscles. If you can minimise lactic acid production your physical performance will increase no end. Supplementimg with beta alanine has been shown to increase muscular levels of carnosine which helps buffer lactic acid.
TeaCrine® is the trademarked name for pure theacrine. Theacrine is a compound that naturally occours in the Camellia assamica var.kucha tealeaf, more commonly referred to as Chinese tea. However it can also be found in other plants such coffee and certain exotic fruits. Clinical human studies indicate that TeaCrine® delivers energy, mental clarity, and improved motivation and mood. The data also shows that it doesn't increase heart rate or blood pressure and therefore it is not classified as a stimulant. Of course TeaCrine® gives you a great energy kick, but it doesn't stop there, nor are its effects short-lived! Rather, Teacrine® has a multi- faceted and prolonged effect that is ideal for extreme physical and mental demands faced by professional and amateur athletes, gamers and anyone striving to attain peak performance. Based on preclinical and human clinical research, TeaCrine® facilitates a wide range of healthy functions in energy, focus, mood and motivation.
CoEnzyme Q10 (Ubiquinone)
CoEnzyme Q10 chemically known as Ubiquinone is a fat soluble vitamin like compound which acts as a cellular antioxidant primarily in the Mitochondria. Coenzyme Q10 plays an active role in the cellular generation of Adenosine tri phosphate (ATP) production. Not only does Coenzyme Q10 aid in ATP production, it also helps protect the energy generating Mitochondria from free radical damage. By optimising Mitochondrial function, muscular and athletic performance will also be improved.
Bioperine plays an essential role in No-XL pre workout by increasing the bioavailability (absorbtion) of other nutritional ingredients. There are numerous studies that have been published about Bioperine which, collectively, show that it improves bioavailability through several mechanisms; Efflux Mechanism, Glucuronidation, Thermogenesis.
