Accordingly, supplementation with LCLT has been shown to increase
androgen receptor levels in muscle biopsies. This increases the ability
for the muscles to receive anabolic signals that would normally be
obliterated. Simply stated, LCLT lets your muscles recover faster and
grow more quickly in response to your workout.
L-Carnitine enhances performance by increasing the body’s reliance on
fat for energy; this reduces depletion of muscle glycogen. By reducing
muscle tissue lactic acid build-up, performance athletes using
L-Carnitine can extend duration of muscular exertion before fatigue.
L-Carnitine is essential for transporting long-chain fats into the
cell for energy production. L-Carnitine taps into your fat supply and
may provide support to burn it as fuel, resulting in increased energy.
Without L-Carnitine, these fats cannot be burned for energy and are
instead shunted to stored body fat.
TAURINE (2,500 mg)
Taurine is an abundant intracellular amino acid in skeletal muscle
and similar to creatine, Taurine draws water in muscle cells and acts as
a cell volumizer. This in turn draws additional nutrients for recovery
and growth, increasing cell volume and enhancing muscle fullness. And
like Creatine, Taurine is not present in whey protein, whereas all other
essential and nonessential amino acids are.
With intense exercise comes changes in electrolyte concentration both
inside and outside of the cell, i.e. loss of muscle K+ and gain of Na+,
Cl- and Ca2+. Detrimental changes in osmolarity are a consequence of
membrane excitability driven by ion imblanace and cells combat this by
manipulating organic osmolytes such as Taurine.
Taurine regulates water and mineral salts in the blood. It maintains
movement of potassium, magnesium and sodium across the cell membranes
and regulates ion balance between cells. Due to its ability to regulate
electrolytes, it may play a role in preventing muscle cramping.
Taurine + Creatine: The PERFECT Cell Volumizers.
Taurine also plays a role in muscle contraction, as it has been shown
to increase the rate at which the sarcoplasmic reticulum accumulates
Ca2+ in both type I and type II muscle fibers. Thus, it enhances the
ability of the muscles to generate force by increasing the uptake and
release of calcium ions. Muscle contraction leads to an increase in
nitric oxide synthase and/or nitric oxide (NO).
Increases in NO have been shown to enhance glucose uptake in skeletal
muscles which may enhance exercise intensity and post-exercise
recovery. Taurine plays a role in Nitric Oxide production (NO gas
present during muscle contraction and blood vessel dilation) and
therefore may enhance the workout session and lead to a more rigorous
A study posted in FASEB found several exercise-related benefits of
L-Taurine. Specifically, severe restriction of TAURINE reduced mobility
of skeletal muscle, while supplementation improved skeletal functions
and provided an energizing effect. Moreover, lab tests have shown that
muscle cells treated with taurine show significant enhancements in
maturation thereby contributing to the process of muscle recovery.
BETAINE (1,000 mg)
Betaine, usually found in super-foods like wheat bran, spinach and
beets, has been included to further enhance strength and power output,
and not in a small dosage either – 1,000 mg a day! Betaine has been
shown in new research to improve exercise performance.
Participants actually improved their squat muscular endurance and
performance. These statistically significant results were shown in just 2
weeks! These massive gains are likely due to the effect of Betaine to
increase muscle-promoting growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor
with simultaneous decrease in exercise-induced cortisol.
Betaine, in comparison to Taurine, has also been shown to function as
an organic osmolyte, maintaining cellular fluid balance. Moreover,
Betaine has been shown to elicit a protective effect against heatinduced
denaturation of citric synthase. Given that citric synthase is a
critical mediator of whole-body energy production, preventing its
destruction is sure to promote massive energy gains.

CREATINE ABSORPTION COMPLEX
CinnulinPF – Multi-patented Creatine Transport Activator
The Absorption Complex starts with CinnulinPF, the only patented
ingredient standardized for doubly linked Type-A Polymers. Science
confirms this product’s ability to affect glucose transport through
insulin signaling mechanisms. Combined with Creatine in the body, this
patented ingredient can improve the level of absorption specific to
Prickly Pear Extract (Opuntia phaeacantha), has a well-documented
insulinogenic effect. Insulinogenics have the ability to reduce blood
sugar and increase the uptake of nutrients such as Creatine without the
presence of sugars, (typically required to assist in the absorption of
Bitter Melon Extract (Momordica charantia) affects insulin receptors
by helping to maintain a healthy normal level of function. Scientists
have recently discovered a functional unit found in bitter melon extract
that physically binds to insulin receptors and stimulates their
activity, facilitating enhanced glucose uptake.
The result – a complex of potent ingredients designed to make CVOL
unmatched in its ability to drive the effectiveness of patented,
clinically tested ingredients to a completely new level.
