What is CSN Supplements GlycerSize+

GlycerSize+ combines the powerful pump agent GlycerSize perfectly with the cell volume regulator taurine to further improve pumps and vascularity with the added benefit of the absorption booster AstraGin.

GlycerSize® is a hugely popular and well-used supplement that will give you a great pump. Made primarily from Glycerol it has become a staple in many pump pre-workouts around the world.

How does glycerol work?

Most of glycerol’s benefits come from its ability to increase the total volume of water in the body. Water retention? Won’t that make me look soft? In the case of glycerol, no.

It appears that the water increase from glycerol is mostly in the blood – more accurately, it increases the volume of plasma in your body. This can get your veins popping, and sends extra fluid to the muscles you’re working out for skin-tearing pumps.

When combined with nitric oxide boosting ingredients like citrulline, agmatine, or nitrates – you can expect some of the most effective pumps possible!

Another benefit of this increased water retention (called “hyperhydration”) is improved performance in endurance-based events. Remember a 2% drop in hydration can lead to a 20% drop in performance 

Glycerol works best with other ingredients

To optimize the pump-enhancing effects of glycerol, it helps to combine it with other ingredients. In particular, ingredients which dilate the blood vessels (also called vasodilators), work very well with glycerol to further improve pumps and vascularity.

Cell-volume regulators such as taurine can also contribute to this effect. That is why CSN has added 1g of taurine per serving.

What are some of the key features of GlycerSize+
  • Stimulant free
  • Improved hydration
  • Decreased urine output 
  • Huge pumps
  • Longer time to exhaustion

What is in Dedicated's Glucose Disposal Agent?

Cinnamon Extract (STANDARDIZED FOR METHYLHYDROXYCHALCONE POLYMER)
This well-known spice has well-documented performance benefits. Unfortunately, regular Cinnamon is very poorly absorbed and has had hardly any effects; even when consumed in measuring spoons.

In true Dedicated style, we have added our unique herbal technology and unlocked Cinnamon’s true power so you can unlock yours.

FENUGREEK EXTRACT (STANDARDIZED FOR 4-HYDROXYISOLEUCINE)
A traditional Indian herb that has been used for thousands of years and has well-documented performance and health benefits.

ASTRAGIN™
A unique and patented Ginseng extract. Astragin™ does not only make Genesis that much more potent, but also helps you get more out of every other supplement or food you consume.

Because results matter we did not sprinkle Astragin™ in Genesis; we actually doubled the commonly used dosage of 50mg. A difference that sets GENESIS™ apart from its competitors.

BLUEBERRY EXTRACT (STANDARDIZED FOR 98% PTEROSTILBENE)
Blue Berries are well known for their high amounts of anti-oxidants. Pterostilbene is such an anti-oxidant and is added to the GENESIS™ formula to manage the effects of carbohydrate-rich meals.

ACTIGIN™ (PANAX NOTOGINSENG ROOT AND ROSA ROXBURGHII)
This ingredient plays a key role in the GENESIS™ formula as it is like the glue that binds the entire formula together and positively impacts every other ingredient in GENESIS™.

Furthermore, Panax Ginseng is added to GENESIS™ as it helps maintain a normal blood glucose level as part of a healthy lifestyle.

While 24mg per serving does not seem much, this small amount is exactly what you need for optimal results.

BIOPERINE® (STANDARDIZED TO 95% PIPERINE)
This black pepper extract was added to GENESIS™ to enhance bio-availability and thus increase potency and half-life of every other ingredient.

BIOTIN (VITAMIN B8)
This vitamin contributes to a normal functioning metabolism of macronutrients and truly enhances GENESIS™ as it’s been added in a heavy but healthy dose.

In true Dedicated Nutrition spirit, GENESIS™ contains a fully disclosed formula. We do not have to hide behind fancy “proprietary blends” that basically do not tell the truth about actual ingredients and dosages.

By actually controlling the cultivation of our own ingredients, we at DEDICATED can guarantee an industry-leading standard untouchable by anyone else. We also guarantee a constant quality with each and every batch, something that is unheard of as well with any herbal formulation available today.

What is Redcon1 Tango?

Boost your performance and make sure you are getting the best workout you can with Redcon1 Tango. This high-performance Creatine formula helps to boost your recovery and give you the energy you need to put in the extra effort in the gym.

Tango is a Creatine based post-workout recovery agent designed to make sure your muscular energy banks are fully restored after each workout.

Tango works to force the muscle to explode with new muscle growth due to a surge in ATP production and cell swelling with ultra-accelerated protein synthesis activation. Adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, is the main energy source that keeps our bodies alive.

Supplementing ATP has been proven to increase blood flow and enhance recovery, meaning you can work harder in the gym.

Anything else in Redcon1's creatine supplement?

Inside each serving of Tango is Betaine which will not only help protect against dehydration, a common side-effect of creatine, but even more importantly will help the body absorb more ingested creatine and maintain even more water in the muscle cell, ultimately greatly impacting protein synthesis.

What are the key features of Redcon1 Tango
  • Boost Recovery – Supplementing ATP has been proven to increase blood flow and enhance recovery, meaning you can work harder in the gym.
  • Enhance Performance – Because Tango lets you recover quicker, it also allows you to work harder in the gym without the restrictions of fatigue.

What is Scitec L-Glutamine 

The L-Glutamine supplement is a formula made up of 100% pure L-glutamine. This is the most abundant amino acid in the human body, and its importance for athletes aiming to maintain lean muscle mass and regenerate damaged cells after workouts have recently been recognised.

Why supplement with this amino acid

Around 60% of the reserves of free amino acids in our muscles are glutamine, however, the body is not able to synthesize this by itself. Instead, the essential amino acid glutamine is present in protein-rich foods and as such can be provided in your diet. However, when taken as a supplement before, during or after a high-intensity workout, L-Glutamine can help to replenish the reserves of amino acids in the bloodstream far more quickly, resulting in better effects on muscle development and speeding up recovery for fatigued muscles.

L-Glutamine can be taken by anyone, from daily gym-goers to more highly focused athletes and even those on a calorie-controlled or restricted diet as it’s sugar-free but still helps to maintain that all-important muscle mass. 

For those who want to take their body condition seriously, Scitec 100% L-Glutamine will provide increased muscle stamina, definition and recuperation post-workout.

What is Scitec Nutrition Tyrosine 

L-Tyrosine is a conditionally essential amino acid, which occurs naturally in foods, mainly as part of proteins. It is one of the 22 amino acids that are used by cells to synthesize proteins. However, athletes and bodybuilders supplement with Tyrosine for other reasons.

Why take Tyrosine?

Tyrosine is an amino acid and nutrient precursor for approximately 90% of the brain's 3 stimulatory catecholamines (dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine).

For a dietary neurotransmitter precursor to being important:

  • Blood concentrations must vary with dietary intake.
  • It must cross the blood-brain barrier.
  • Its transport systems must be able to accommodate more precursor than what is regularly available.
  • The levels of the precursor are what limit neurotransmitter formation.

Since tyrosine meets these qualifications, it's evident that a large increase in dietary tyrosine will lead to increases in both brain and peripheral catecholamine concentrations. Human studies confirm that large doses of tyrosine (33mg/kg, 3x per day) can increase blood and urinary catecholamines by up to 25%.

By increasing brain neurotransmitter concentrations, tyrosine can help increase attention and combat performance decrements during sustained efforts, especially when sleep-deprived. In addition to this mild stimulant effect, tyrosine may act as an "anti-stress supplement", suppressing rises in cortisol and the norepinephrine depletion associated with the stress response. Finally, tyrosine supplementation may reduce reaction time.

What are the key features of Scitec Nutrition Tyrosine
  • 100 caps per container
  • 1000mg per serving
  • Increase attention and combat performance decrements
