Top 5 Pre Workout Ingredients: VASO6

Previously in our countdown of the top 5 pre workout supplements, we discussed caffeine in all its energy-boosting, mood-elevating, and performance-throttling splendor.

Today, we look at a non-stimulant ingredient that enhances blood flow and performance all while supporting cardiovascular health in VASO6.

What is VASO6?

Technically speaking, VASO6 is a proprietary gallate-enhanced oligomer comprised of dimers, trimers, tetramers and pentamers derived from green tea documened to induce endothelial relaxation and stimulate nitric oxide production.

For those of you who have absolutely no idea what the vast majority of that sentence means, VASO6 is essentially an extremely unique extract of green tea containing only those fractions that demonstrate the highest vasorelaxation activity.

As you probably know, green tea contains a plethora of phytochemicals and amino acids, such as EGCG, epicatechin, and L-theanine. But it also contains numerous other compounds that induce nitric oxide production and relaxation of blood vessels.

During the development of VASO6, David Fitzpatrick isolated the peak fraction in grape seed that exhibited the highest amount of endothelial-dependant relaxation activity. That fraction was known as peak G6.

Therefore, VASO6 stands for for vasorelaxant peak G6.

What Does VASO6 Do?

The compounds present in VASO6 have been documented in vitro to exhibit endothelium-dependent relaxation (EDR) activity, meaning they cause a relaxation or “loosening up” of blood vessels.

They do this by inducing a release of endothelial nitric oxide, which in turn raises levels of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (GMP) in the vascular smooth muscle cells.

The end result is an increase in both vasodilation and vasorelaxation, yielding greater blood flow, nutrient, and oxygen delivery along with a reduction in blood pressure. FYI, arginine (one of the oldest NO-boosting supplements on the market) only results in 5% vasodilation.

What are the Benefits of VASO6 for Exercise Performance?

  • Increased blood flow
  • Enhanced oxygen and nutrient delivery
  • Powerful muscle pumps
  • Reduced fatigue
  • Boosts performance and stamina
  • Decreases blood pressure
  • Supports cardiovascular health
