You may already know that Arginine is a precursor to Nitric Oxide (NO). You may also know that a muscle pump while weight training is essential for anabolism (muscle growth). What you may not know is NO is a byproduct of arginine being broken down by an enzyme called Nitric Oxide Synthase (NOS).
In the past, NO supplements were designed to flood your body with mass amounts of Arginine. However, until now, there were not enough cofactors in your system (such as NOS) to meet this enormous supply of Arginine, thereby leading to small pumps or no pumps at all. Because NOS is made by the body naturally, you only have a finite supply. Consequently, no matter how much Arginine you have flooded your system with, your NO will only be as good as the amount of NOS you have to break it down. HemodrauliX contains the breakthrough ingredient to support the key enzyme, NOS. The result: Ridiculous Pumps! Excited yet? “How in the heck did you do this?”, you might ask.
The answer is the addition Polyphenols. You may have seen polyphenols in other products because they have so many benefits. But you have never seen them used this way before. The polyphenols in HemodrauliX upregulate the NOS enzyme (make more) to help break down the 6.5 grams of nitric oxide perpetuators in each serving of HemodrauliX to give you a pump like you’ve never experienced before.
Arginine ≠ Nitric Oxide
Arginine + N.O.S. = Nitric Oxide
Arginine + Upregulated N.O.S. = Max Nitric Oxide
HemodrauliX Is the only product that up-regulates N.O.S.
HemodrauliX is so powerful that we only suggest taking it once a day and no more than four-to-five times a week. This helps preserve your NOS levels so you have skin bursting pumps every time you take it. The intense effects of HemodrauliX may even be felt for days after use.

Creatine Ethyl EsterRegular price Sale price $ 15.99
Nearly as important as your workout itself, your post-workout recovery regimen needs a range of high-quality amino acid supplements to maintain and promote muscle growth. To ensure that you’re making your recovery an active process, you’ll need the best supplements for muscle recovery.
Creatine ethyl ester, also known as creatine ester, cre-ester, and CEE, is a creatine developed for athletic performance and for muscle development in the body. It is an ethyl ester derivative of creatine, from which it is made.
Research has identified an ethyl esterfication process and molecule (Creatine Ethyl Ester or CEE) that has an aqueous solubility more than 30 times that of creatine monohydrate. CEE does not undergo conversation to creatinine in the stomach and is more readily absorbed in the intestine.
Our Creatine Ethyl Ester amino recovery product is formulated to ensure rapid absorption by the muscles that need it most. As soon as you take a serving of this supplement, the CEE is absorbed into the bloodstream and transported to muscle tissue. This helps you develop your muscle strength, improve the mass, power, and appearance.

Creatine MonohydrateRegular price $ 26.99
Creatine is a natural compound made in the body and is derived from the diet through meat products. In the body, Creatine is changed into a molecule called phospho Creatine which serves as a storage reservoir for regenerating ATP. ATP is the chemical source of energy for muscle contraction and quick energy. Phospho Creatine is an important source of ATP energy in muscle tissue and studies suggest that Creatine may increase the performance of athletes in activities that require quick bursts of energy, such as sprinting and weight lifting.* Creatine supplementation combined with strength training has been suggested to cause improvements in muscle hypertrophy (size) and strength through cell volumization and increased protein synthesis.*
Creatine is by far, one of the best discoveries to ever hit the bodybuilding/fitness world. In the body, Creatine is changed into a molecule called phosphocreatine which serves as a storage reservoir for regenerating ATP. ATP is the chemical source of energy for muscle contraction and quick energy. PhosphoCreatine is an important source of ATP energy in muscle tissue and studies have shown that Creatine can increase the performance of athletes in activities that require quick bursts of energy, such as sprinting and weight lifting.
Creatine supplementation combined with strength training has been shown to cause dramatic improvements in muscle hypertrophy (size) and strength through cell volumization and increased protein synthesis. Cell volumization is an increase in muscle volume (size) caused when water follows Creatine into our muscles. Cell volumization can increase strength by increasing the amount of force a muscle can contract with. There is also research that indicates that cell volumization and Creatine supplementation can signal muscle cells to grow and increase protein synthesis, while preventing protein breakdown. This means that your muscle recovery time is diminished, while also better maintaining the gains you made during your workout.
Creatine monohydrate has been proven effective in increasing muscle mass, strength, and all around athletic performance and long-term clinical studies have also shown that Creatine monohydrate is safe for use by people without medical conditions. However, Creatine supplements are only as effective as their transport system.
If you’re looking for simply the best in amino acid-based post-workout recovery products, then it’s time to include Creatine Monohydrate into your supplements regimen.
