UNIVERSAL NUTRITION ANIMAL RAGE XL
When you set goals for yourself, “good enough” just doesn’t cut it. It doesn’t for us either. In the pursuit of our best formulas and your best workouts, we created Animal Rage XL, a superior tasting “concentrated” pre-workout powder designed to help you achieve PRs. When you take Rage XL before you train, you’ll feel larger than life. Animal Rage XL has a complete and loaded formula, consisting of four powerful complexes that deliver a comprehensive and precisely measured dose of energy, focus and performance nutrients. With each and every “shot” of Rage XL you throw back, you’ll get a rush of voltage straight to the head. Quick energy is the feeling of an adrenaline surge traveling throughout your body, waking up your senses, and preparing you for your intense workout ahead. Animal Rage XL’s Quick Energy Complex gets in your system in fast and furious fashion. You feel it and you’re ready to train in minutes. The core of Animal Rage’s Quick Energy Complex is pure caffeine anhydrous, a powerful central nervous system (CNS) stimulant. The chemical structure of caffeine is very similar to that of adenine (a component of ATP, DNA, and cyclic AMP). Essentially it’s very close to being an energy metabolite and because of the structural similarities, caffeine can slip right into adenosine receptors, keeping cyclic AMP active rather than being broken down. Caffeine allows the cyclic AMP supply remains higher for longer. In short, caffeine reaches deep into the muscle cell to provide lasting power and delays the onset of muscle fatigue. The Quick Energy Complex also comes packed with green tea and coffee bean extracts. These two natural energizers are also antioxidants so not only do they help gear you up for the workout but they also help reduce free oxygen radicals in the body, helping your cells to work efficiently and in a less stressful environment. Rounding out the Quick Energy Complex is bacopa monnieri. In Ayurvedic medicine, bacopa monnieri is considered a natural mental stimulant and energizer. As a classic brain and nerve tonic, bacopa monnieri has been used for hundreds of years for brain and nervous system support, and as such, has been suggested to boost mental clarity, concentration, and to promote memory and intelligence. Synthetic stimulant compounds coupled with naturally occurring caffeine sources, are responsible for the rapid and enduring energy explosion inherent to each tiny scoop of Rage XL. While quick energy wakes you up for the training session, you need to be able to sustain your energy levels throughout the workout. What good is it if you have energy to start the workout but have nothing left in the tank for the duration of the workout? This is where Animal Rage XL differs from other energy/pre-workout products. Where other energy products end, Rage XL is just beginning. Here’s what XL has that no other pre-workout in its category has – a unique Sustained Energy Complex. This key complex houses powerful compounds from eleutherococcus senticosus, L-carnitine, ashwagandha root extract, and glycine proprionyl L-carntine . Together these compounds can help support physical training capacity, improve endurance, and decrease mental fatigue. These are critical factors for naturally enhancing one’s performance levels in the gym. GlycoCarn is a unique, powerful, research-backed, and patented form of carnitine that is made up of glycine propionyl L-carnitine HCl. GlycoCarn helps increase nitric oxide (NO) synthesis that triggers vasodilation and supports blood flow and delivery of oxygen to working muscles. Carnitine in general is known to be involved in fatty acid metabolism, and GlycoCarn is a patented compound that has been suggested to result in an increase in blood levels of nitric oxide, as well as delivering antioxidant properties. Ongoing research indicates that along with its ability to be a nitric oxide booster, this compound may be associated with supporting high intensity exercise performance. The performance effects of GlycoCarn may be a result of both its nitric oxide boosting properties as well as its antioxidant activity, ultimately promoting blood flow and enhanced ATP energy production. Something of a crossover nutrient with multiple properties beneficial to the athlete, GlycoCarn cuts across categories. This is a major upgrade, solidifying Rage XL’s formula as superior when compared to its predecessor. Rage XL also helps support dramatic results when it comes to endurance and performance. These are two important facets of a top tier training program. You need energy to keep you moving during the training session but it can’t end there. You have to be able to endure and maintain your strength throughout the rigors of a hard training session. And it’s not about training for hours on end, it’s about performing at a high level during your entire session. That’s what hardcore lifters need to do each and every gym workout. You can’t have a shoddy performance in the gym and then expect great results. This is why Animal Rage XL contains an Endurance & Performance Complex, dosed with ergogenic aids such as newly added and patented Creapure-brand creatine monohydrate, Carnosyn, beta alanine, citrulline malate, L-taurine and glucuronolactone Let’s take a closer look at what these compounds help with. Kicking off the Endurance and Performance complex is none other than tried and true creatine monohydrate. When it comes to performance ingredients, creatine is king, suggested both in the lab and in the gym, more researched than any other single performance micronutrient. Rage XL incorporates only the highest quality, German-grade Creapure creatine monohydrate. Creatine works to boost performance in many aspects; including increasing strength for explosive, heavy lifts with shorter rep counts, improving quickness in sprinting or lifting, supporting greater work capacity (more sets and reps), allowing for quicker process of information by the brain and even boosting natural testosterone levels amongst other benefits. In addition, creatine has also been suggested by studies to promote the gain of muscle mass and strength in myogenic satellite cells, which are important in the regeneration and overall maintenance of skeletal muscle. Creatine flat out works. That’s why it is in Rage XL. According to scientific studies, beta alanine may help hard training athletes in a number of important areas such as strength, power output, endurance, exercise capacity and muscle mass as well as delaying the onset of neuromuscular fatigue. Citrulline malate has been suggested to increase plasma arginine levels and nitric oxide (NO). The physiological effect of boosting NO as citrulline malate, includes better regulation of blood flow and amino acid delivery to muscle tissue, improved oxygen delivery, enhanced glucose uptake and muscle strength. Citrulline malate also plays a role in reduced lactic acid and ammonia buildup, optimized ATP production, battles muscle fatigue and promotes endurance. Rage XL also contains l-taurine, which is the second most abundant amino acid in muscle. L-taurine has been suggested to work by expanding muscle cells by allowing them to hold more water, thus increasing cell volume. For bodybuilders and strength athletes, this is very important as expanded muscle cells can boost hydration, which results in a higher rate of protein synthesis. The final ingredient in the complex is glucuronolactone, which is naturally occurring and is an important structural component of nearly all connective tissues. Improvements in mental performance and reaction time as well as aerobic and anaerobic performance are some of the benefits noted. The last complex up is the Focus and Intensity Complex. Focus is one of the most underestimated things when it comes to achieving a great training session. Lose your focus and you’ll feel that your training is ruined. Keeping focused during your workout ensures you get done what needs to be done without anything getting in your way. But on top of that, it isn’t enough just to be focused – you also need to train with maximum intensity too. When you’re focused and training intensely, this is where you tap into even greater results. The top athletes in the world know how to consistently tap into this mindset, a mindset that allows them to separate themselves from their competition. Animal Rage XL has its own specialized Focus & Intensity Complex consisting of well-known nootropics such as L-tyrosine, choline bitartrate, n-acetyl tyrosine and beta-phenylethylamine. L-tyrosine and n-acetyl l-tyrosine play important roles in the production of the neurotransmitters dopamine and norepinephrine, which are important for healthy cognitive and brain function. An awesome side-benefit from tyrosine is that it has also been suggested to support a healthy balance of the hormone cortisol, thus it may help the body during the stresses of heavy weight training. Choline bitartrate, similar to tyrosine, is an effective neurotransmitter precursor. In addition, choline also works to produce another neurotransmitter, acetylcholine, which is important for memory and learning and is a neurotransmitter used throughout the body. Among other things, it works to turn your brain on and determines your brain speed. Finally, ß-Phenylalamine (ß -PEA) rounds out the Focus & Intensity Complex. ß -PEA works to help maintain and promote mental alertness, focus, mood and concentration. It is also believed to function as a neuromodulator or neurotransmitter and can promote energy and elevate mood. When it comes to achieving your fullest potential in the gym, when only the best workouts will do, you need to bring a complete package to the table. That package consists not only of the body, but the mind. The mind is, after all, man’s most powerful weapon. If your thinking is sharp and you are focused on the task at hand, you can’t be stopped. Animal Rage XL sharpens the mind and energizes the body for a potent 1-2 combo. Overcoming lethargy, breaking through plateaus, and smashing PRs – this is the purpose of Animal Rage XL.
To create a concentrated Animal Rage XL “shot”, mix 1 level scoop in 4 oz. of your beverage of choice 20-30 minutes before vigorous activity. Do not consume more than two servings within a 24 hour period or within 6-8 hours of bedtime. This product is formulated with ingredients that absorb moisture which can lead to clumping of the powder. This is normal and the product is okay to consume.
