Goal. We all have them. But what truly is a goal. Webster dictionary defines goal as:
1. The end toward which effort is directed
2. The terminal point of a race.
When we think of our goals we think of how quickly can we accomplish them. Whether your goal is losing a few pounds, increasing performance, or bursting through a new plateau, we all want to race to the finish line. Unfortunately, we all have lives and sometimes life gets in the way and knocks us out of the race. We seek out products that make claims that will help us reach our goals and reach them quickly. However, we find only once again we have lost our hard earned dollars and have become no closer to the finish line. Well, not anymore! Applied Nutriceuticals has the answer to putting you back in the drivers seat and racing towards your goal at speeds you never thought possible! Finally there is a product that makes every day…..Race Day! That product is RPM from Applied Nutriceuticals. What is RPM? Rpm is an exclusive formula that provides explosive energy, crisp uncanny mental focus, noticeable strength increases, all while giving you insane pumps, suppressed estrogen, increased testosterone, while incinerating fat!!!! RPM is instant gratification from the very first dose! RPM is in its own race class!
Lets look under the hood at this super-charged formula………………
RPM’s formula is so unique it requires it’s own class. RPM, the supplement world’s first Anabolic-Cognitive Energy System Enhancer (A-CESE), where anabolics meet cognitive psy-stimulants!
How do A-CESEs differ from other product categories on the market? An A-CESE is a product that contains testosterone-like, anti-catabolic, and aromatase-inhibiting properties, while at the same time delivering optimal mind/muscle connection/contraction through unique peripheral vasostimulatory perfusion and increased cognitive psycho-motor control. RPM combines P-SARM Synthase AI- a unique blend of research-grade icariin, Arginine , Naringenin, and oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC’s), and Methyl-AMP Complex, a powerful blend of methyl-xanthine caffeine and chocamine.
AN uses the highest quality ingredients in scientifically-proven doses to achieve maximal results!! In the product constituent P-SARM Synthase AI, RPM utilizes pharmaceutical-grade Icariin, a potent vasodilator with anabolic and anti-catabolic effects, that can also yield stronger, more forceful muscle contractions!! Icariin works through several different mechanisms: by increasing nitric oxide (NO) through PDE5 inhibition, by acting as a potent anti-catabolic agent that increases the testosterone to cortisol ratio, by increasing muscle contractility by deactivating AchE (Acetycholinesterase), and by boosting endogenous testosterone levels through increasing cAMP and luteinizing hormone and decreasing prolactin. It also is considered a Phytochemical Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator or P-SARM. A P-SARM is a phytochemical (plant-derived) compound that mimics the effects of androgens on muscle mass, strength, bone growth, drive, and sexual function, while at the same time not negatively effecting blood lipids or blood pressure. P-SARMs provide an excellent alternative to other “enhancement” products on the market, including oral bioavailability, flexible biochemical structure, and lack of steroid-related side-effects!!!
As mentioned before, Icariin has potent anti-catabolic effects, along with testosterone-mimicking and muscle-contraction-enhancing benefits - several studies have shown that it actually competes with glucocorticoids for receptor sites in a manner similar to testosterone, while at the same time improving the testosterone to cortisol ratio. This is caused by two different mechanisms of action: the aforementioned competition with glucocorticoids, and also increased testosterone production, through increased cAMP (cyclic AMP, a second messenger important in hormone signaling) levels, luteininzing hormone (LH) levels, the actual mimicry of testosterone in spermatogenesis, and decreased prolactin levels. Icariin seems to block glucorticoids from binding to cortisol receptors, thus blocking the action of cortisol. This alone will cause an anabolic effect by positively skewing the T:C ratio, which is a trigger for greater protein synthesis, increased aggression towards the iron, and insane muscle contractions!! RPM also reduces aromatase and estradiol, allowing for the greater production of T as a substrate for aromatase activity- as users of RPM report huge rises in strength, physique hardness, and positive aggression while using this compound, an effect that can be at least partially attributed to the androgen-mimicking qualities of Icariin. RPM also has a dopaminergic effect, allowing for increased dopamine levels and decreased prolactin levels, both of which are triggers for increased testosterone. Also, icariin can enhance muscle contraction by decreasing the effects of acetylcholinesterase (AChE). Acetylcholine (Ach) is a neurotransmitter necessary for muscle contraction, and AChE is responsible for disabling ACh at the neuromuscular junction. Icarin actually blocks this disabling action, allowing for ACh to stay at the synapse, and better exert its effects, for a longer period of time- allowing for harder and stronger muscle contractions!!!
Icariin is a selective inhibitor of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP)- specific phosphodiasterase type 5 (PDE5 for the purposes of this article). This is important, because PDE5 hydrolyze cGMP into an inactive molecule. cGMP is important because nitric oxide (NO) requires cGMP to moderate vascular control and vasodilation. So, essentially, no cGMP, no vasodilation (the “PUMP”), because NO requires cGMP to work. The more cGMP, the more NO-induced vasodilation- therefore greater pumps!! Icariin stops PDE5 from disabling cGMP and allowing cGMP to extend its activity, which exerting the effects of NO in skeletal muscle, allowing for a stronger muscle contraction and pump. Viagra is probably the most well known PDE5 inhibitor on the market- but how does Icariin compare? In scientific studies, pure icariin has been found to have roughly one-tenth the PDE5 inhibitory activity and nitric oxide productivity of Viagra- and in P-SARM Synthase AI, the dosage is tailored appropriately to reflect these findings!! In short, the PDE5 inhibition displayed by icariin puts RPM in a class above all other NO enhancers- the effects can actually be viewed as “pharmaceutical-like!!!!”
The inclusion of oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs) are also essential in the creation of any good A-CESE, because OPCs contain their own combination of unique and effective constituents, which allows P-SARM Synthase AI to exert potent anti-aromatase (AI), anti-oxidant, and vasodilatory effects. OPCs have been shown in numerous studies to have the ability to block the conversion of androgens to estrogens, with a potency comparable to several widely marketed pharmaceutical AI inhibitors (Arimidex). RPM reduces aromatase activity and estradiol as well, allowing for more testosterone (T) to be produced!! Compounds exhibiting AI characteristics also reduce SHBG (steroid hormone binding globulin) as well. This is important, because this allows for a drastic increase in free testosterone (T). When this occurs, coupled with T levels that are already high from decreased aromatization of estrogen, WATCH OUT!!!! Look for longer, harder more intense workouts, rapid strength increases with personal records on all your lifts, greater protein synthesis, quicker recovery, while also allowing for increased lipolysis (fat burning)!! This, coupled with the androgen-mimicking qualities of the P-SARM Icariin, gives the product a unique “hardness” enhancing quality, giving the user of the product an “eye” popping type of physique that looks to be cut from stone!!!
OPCs also protect against free radicals and subsequent DNA and oxidative damage, qualities that are extremely important to the hard-training athlete. Oxidative damage is a common occurrence during stress and hard training, and it can stop lean body mass gains in their tracks!! Less oxidative damage, better recovery, giving you the ability to train longer and harder!!! The nitric oxide-enhancing, vasodilatory properties of OPCs have also been documented in countless studies. The flavonoids contained in OPCs actually increase levels of Nitric Oxide Synthase (NOS), the enzyme that allows for the conversion of arginine to nitric oxide. This is very important, as nitric oxide synthase competes with arginase for the utilization of the amino acid L-arginine. Arginase converts L-arginine into ornthine, and increased arginase and ornthine activity, are counteractive to the nitric oxide production pathway. By increasing NOS, the flavonoids in OPCs “crowd out” arginase, allowing for more arginine to be processed into NO. The result is higher NO levels, even greater vasodilation, and gigantic pumps and a physique hard as nails!!
Naringin, and its novel component Naringenin, also exert extensive effects within the P-SARM Synthase AI complex. Naringin (and Naringenin) exhibit remarkable aromatase and estrogen-inhibiting properties by decreasing the cytochrome P450arom isoform, an enzyme that also allows for the oxidative metabolism for chemical modification and degradation of oral medications. This can have very positive effects on the T:E ratio, and the combination of OPCs and Naringenin can be potentially additive or synergistic in eliminating estrogen, and allowing for more circulating free testosterone and all of its benefits!!! Naringin and Naringenin have also been shown to have profound effects on the metabolism of caffeine and PDE5 inhibitors such as Icariin, allowing for these compounds to be much more effective on a per dose basis- by up to 35%!!!
L-Arginine is also an essential component of the P-SARM Synthase AI matrix. L-Arginine is an amino acid that is necessary for cell division, the healing of wounds, displacing ammonia from the body, the release of hormones, and immune function. Most importantly, L-arginine is necessary for the production of Nitric Oxide (NO, as mentioned above), a messenger gas responsible for the promotion of blood vessel relaxation (“pump”), and the regulation of vascular tone. NO is derived from arginine and oxygen via Nitric Oxide synthase (NOS), and, as mentioned above, NO exerts its effects on tissue through cGMP. The inclusion of Arginine in the P-SARM Synthase AI complex allows for a steady, continuous supply of L-arginine for conversion to NO, allowing for a more effective product. Numerous research studies document the positive effects of L-Arginine and NO on increasing lean body mass, and possibly even mediating greater growth hormone response!!
As you can see, the P-SARM Synthase AI decoction offers an extremely potent blend of testosterone-optimizing, estrogen eliminating, and NO-enhancing effects. The “other” synergistic component blend of RPM, Methyl-AMP Complex, makes this A-CESE unmatched as a mind/muscle connector/contractor through unique peripheral vasostimulatory perfusion and increased cognitive psycho-motor control!!
Methyl-Xanthine Anhydrous Caffeine (MXAC), the first component of the Methyl-AMP Complex, is a metabolic stimulant that heightens mental alertness and focus and improves muscle contraction and coordination. MXAC exerts very strong effects on vasodilation- a process that begins with the activation of Norepinephrine (NE) by MXAC, and the deactivation of cAMP-PDE, an enzyme that breaks down cAMP When MXAC acts on a cell, cAMP-PDE can no longer turn cAMP into AMP, so the action of cAMP is prolonged within the cell. Sound like boring biochemistry? Let’s take a look at the overall effect on the body- when cAMP levels are increased due to cAMP-PDE inactivation, the blood vessels in skeletal muscle tend to relax- the result? More rapid blood flow into the muscle, resulting in bulging vascularity and massive pumps!! MXAC also contains significant amounts of theobromine, a vasodilator that ups the amount of nutrients and oxygen into the brain and skeletal muscle. This greater blood flow to the brain contributes to the cognitive enhancement capabilities of MXAC, by blocking adenosine uptake without activating adenosine receptors- resulting in an increase in dopamine and serotonin levels, causing a positive influence on mood, allowing the user to maintain an optimal training environment.
Another added benefit of MXAC is the ability to stimulate the central nervous system, which may help the athlete feel better and more alert, allowing for enhanced focus and clear-headedness. It also stimulates the neural system to fire muscles into action more effectively via norepinephrine stimulation, and also by producing changes in calcium activity, thus stimulating ion transport of potassium into non-contracting tissues. This is important because ion transport helps reduce the increase in blood potassium concentrations during exercise, helping maintain the excitability of the muscle fiber, allowing for a stronger, longer muscle contraction!!
