I just got a sample box of the Progenex Force today. I gave it a try and was
pleasantly surprised. The lemon taste went down easy and I did not have to make a sour face. I only had to stir a little and the powder didn’t clump at the bottom like other pre-workouts.
The drink goes down easy and I only added a few ounces of water to drink it down. Not bad at all.
Out on the gym floor I felt good with a little bit of elevation. This product will not get you jacked through the roof like a few other pre-workouts (which is not good if you ever want to sleep that week). The products doesn’t use beta-alanine which some athletes don’t like due to the tingling sensation.
I had a great workout and a really good pump. Felt like I was ready for another session.
PROGENEX Force is aptly named. One serving, pre-workout, and you’ll feel the power surge within you—enabling you to take your training and performance to the next level, and achieve incredible results both in and outside the gym.
PROGENEX Force contains a special proprietary blend of ingredients that is specifically formulated to maximize your body’s ability to train harder, longer so that you can realize superior results.
To create the finest pre-workout product, we consulted with scientists, athletes, and every day exercisers to find out just what they felt was needed. The ability to withstand fatigue was of pre-eminent concern, as was the rapid and ready supply and distribution of key nutrients during training.
PROGENEX Force does all that and more. The ingredients in each serving of PROGENEX Force have been shown in studies to:
Increase your energy, strength, stamina, clarity and mental focus.
Maximize your ability to train harder, longer by fueling muscles and blocking fatigue pathways.
Optimize your performance through increased blood flow, oxygen transport and the delivery of key nutrients during training.
All of the above is made possible by our proprietary Surge NOS Activator ™, our carefully calibrated nutrients (Creatine and 2:1:1 BCAA Peptides), our anti-fatigue ingredients—L-Citrulline and Beta-Alanine, and our low-dose addition of caffeine.
Surge NOS Activator™
PROGENEX Force contains Surge NOS Activator™–a proprietary whey peptide that enhances nitric oxide production in endothelial cells. This process is crucial for vasorelaxation, or greater arterial dilation (Cosentino, 1995), (Bryan, 2009). Vasodilation means you’ll experience:
Increased blood flow and oxygen transport
Maximized and prolonged VO2 Max
Reduction in blood pressure, and
Rapid delivery of key nutrients during training
How does Surge NOS Activator ™ work? Surge NOS Activator™ is an isolated concentration of key whey peptides that enhance nitric oxide production in endothelial cells. Unlike some NO products, the mechanism of action in Surge NOS Activator™ is different in that we don’t simply just add more amino fuel, such as arginine, to support NO activity. Surge NOS Activator™ actually switches on the enzymatic pathway to utilize your own amino acids to start the NO response.
If you are unfamiliar with the NO response or even the “radical” molecule known as nitric oxide, allow me to explain. Known as NO, nitric oxide is an important cellular signaling molecule. It is often referred to as the endothelium-derived relaxing factor—EDRF—because the endothelium (inner lining) of blood vessels uses nitric oxide to signal the surrounding smooth muscle to relax. This relaxation is referred to as vasorelaxation, and/or vasodilation. It is this increased arterial dilation that allows for greater blood flow.
It was Ferid Murad and his colleagues who first made this important discovery back in 1973. The implications for modern day medicine were so far-reaching and profound that in 1992, nitric oxide was named “Molecule of the Year,” and six years later, Murad and his colleagues were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology.
Their landmark research spurred pharmaceutical companies to create medicines with the ability to successfully treat angina, atherosclerosis, diabetes, hypertension, and/or erectile dysfunction (yes, Viagra also harnesses the power of nitric oxide).
It didn’t take long for athletes and sports nutritionists to also realize the significance of Murad’s discovery. Supplements harnessing the power of nitric oxide abound, but only PROGENEX Force contains the patent-pending technology and proprietary dosing that specifically isolates and concentrates key whey peptides responsible for activating the production of nitric oxide in endothelial cells, resulting in vasorelaxation.
Just one serving of PROGENEX Force and you will feel the power Surge, enabling you to experience increased blood flow, increased oxygen transport and extended VO2 max. You’ll also feel your muscles fuel up as two ingredients course rapidly through your expanded arterial walls, delivering strict muscle fuel before, during, and after your grueling workout.*
