Pre-workout supplements play an essential role in a person’s exercise and diet regimen. They must deliver on many fronts: energy, focus, blood flow, and performance, just to name a few. In order to properly prepare the mind and body for the hard work ahead, a precise blend of ingredients working together synergistically must be achieved. That is why Performax Labs is proud to present HyperMaxTM: a fine-tuned formulation of clinically-backed, efficaciously-dosed ingredients for optimal performance. Our blend of vasodilators, adrenaline boosters, and sports performance enhancers will keep your brain humming and your body pushing through, no matter what you throw at it.
- Citrulline – The precursor to arginine that works better than arginine to boost blood flow to skeletal muscle.
- Beta-alanine – One of the most trusted and well-studied ingredients available, this precursor to carnosine helps to buffer acid buildup for increased exercise performance and lean mass with reduced muscle soreness.
- B-phenylethylamine HCl – A trace amine that can increase the action of noradrenaline to vastly improve focus and cognition.
- Eria Jarensis Extract – A wide spectrum of phenethylamines for enhanced efficacy and longevity of cognitive enhancement.
- Hordeum vulgare – This natural source of hordenine acts as a noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor to enhance its effects and enable it to last longer.
- Caffeine – At 325 mg, this popular stimulant will deliver powerful enhancement of exercise performance, whether aerobic or anerobic.
In HyperMaxTM, we have combined clinically-researched vasodilators and performance boosters with the best neuroenhancers available. By pairing B-phenylethylamine HCl with whole plant Eria jarensis extract, we are able to provide a full spectrum of phenethylamines, which maximizes their potency and cognitive effectiveness. Before your next workout, maximize your performance with HyperMaxTM.
Citrulline is a precursor to arginine, and increases blood arginine more reliably and for a longer period of time than supplemental arginine. Citrulline is an amino acid that doesn’t build proteins, so the liver does not metabolize any of it. Therefore, more citrulline will be delivered into the bloodstream.
- Ochiai et al. (2012) showed that supplementation with 5.6g of citrulline for 7 days increased blood arginine, nitric oxide production, and blood flow.
- Regarding performance, Perez-Guisado and colleagues (2010) demonstrated that citrulline consumption increased training volume, lowered fatigue, and reduced muscle soreness.
One of the best studied supplements for sports nutrition, beta-alanine is a precursor to carnosine – the main acid buffer for skeletal muscle. Exercise produces acid buildup, which can lead to soreness and decreased performance. Beta-alanine supplementation improves the body’s buffering ability, which leads to decreased muscle soreness and increased performance.
- Eight weeks of beta-alanine consumption increased lean mass in both collegiate wrestlers and football players (Kern et al. 2011).
- Smith et al. (2009) showed that beta-alanine improved total work performed, time to exhaustion, and VO2MAX, as well as lean mass, in young, healthy men.
Agmatine bestows multiple benefits that improve exercise. Not only can agmatine improve glucose uptake to muscles, but it also increases blood flow.
- Gao et al. (1995) demonstrated agmatine’s potent vasodilatory properties.
Similar to citrulline, ornithine is involved with arginine metabolism – and because it is also non-proteinogenic, it does not get metabolized in the liver upon consumption. Some of its benefits include: increased blood arginine for improved blood flow, lower fatigue, and improved waste removal from the body.
- Ornithine supplementation reduced feelings of fatigue by 50% after a 2 hour exercise test (Sugino et al., 2008).
B-phenylethylamine is a powerful nootropic that acts on trace amine receptors in the brain and body. Via these mechanisms, it is able to affect multiple neurotransmitters to improve energy, focus and mood, including catecholamines such as adrenaline and noradrenaline.
- Borowsky et al. (2001) showed that trace amine receptors can be found in specific brain areas where B-pheylethylamine has demonstrated catecholaminergic activity.
- Paterson (1993) observed that phenylethylamine activated noradrenaline receptors in a sympathomimetic fashion, independent of noradrenaline.
Eria Jarensis Extract
Eria jarensis contains a wide spectrum of phenethylamines, such as N-phenethyl-dimethylamine, which pair remarkably with B-phenylethylamine for vastly enhanced efficacy, potency, and long-lasting effect.
- Eria jarensis has shown improvements in focus and mood by affecting both noradrenaline and dopamine, respectively.
Hordeum vulgare is a naturally-occurring source of hordenine, an adrenergic-like compound that improves energy and focus. Through its action as a noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor, it enhances the bioavailability, action, and long-lasting effect of noradrenaline.
- Barwell et al. (1989) observed the effects of hordenine on noradrenaline and its reuptake, suggesting that it would be effective when combined with other enhancers of noradrenaline release.
Tyrosine is a precursor to serotonin, an important neurotransmitter regarding mood and energy.
- In military cadets, tyrosine improved cognitive performance after a week of combat training, specifically regarding memory and cognitive task performance (Deijen et al., 1999).
- Banderet and colleagues (1989) demonstrated that tyrosine improved mood and cognitive function during stressful conditions (cold and altitude).
Caffeine is the most commonly used stimulant in the world. Its effectiveness doesn’t stop at adrenaline and focus – it also improves power output, aerobic, and anerobic exercise.
- In trained athletes, Schneiker et al. (2006) observed that caffeine induced an increase in peak power of 7% and an increase in total work of 8.5%.
- In rugby players, caffeine increased power output and testosterone by 21% (Beaven et al., 2008).
- Glaister et al. (2012) found that caffeine improved sprinting time by 1.4% during a multiple sprint running test.
Citrus aurantium, or bitter orange, is a natural source of p-synephrine – a trace amine with structural similarities to ephedrine and noradrenaline. Known for its metabolism-boosting properties, p-synephrine has demonstrated beta-adrenergic agonism, similar to noradrenaline.
- Seifert et al. (2011) demonstrated a synergistic benefit when caffeine was combined with Citrus aurantium, specifically regarding substrate utilization.
Rauwolfia is a natural source of rawolscine, a stereoisomer of yohimbine. It acts similarly to yohimbine as an alpha-2 adrenergic antagonist and as an agonist for serotonin receptors. As such, it stimulates the central nervous system to elevate mood, energy, and affect body composition via improved substrate utilization.
Black Pepper Extract
Piperine inhibits cytochrome P450 enzymes, which play essential roles in the elimination of many compounds. Therefore, piperine can increase the time that certain compounds stay in the bloodstream, thereby improving their effectiveness.
- Piperine has demonstrated increased bioavailability of bioactive compounds of up to 2000%.
Q: How do I take Performax Labs’ HyperMax?
A: Take 1 scoop with water before your workout. Preferably take once daily on an empty stomach.
Q: What are phenethylamines?
A: Phenethylamines are monamine alkaloids that stimulate the central nervous system. They activate neurotransmitters, such as dopamine and serotonin, as well as catecholamine release – adrenaline and noradrenaline. In this way, they improve cognitive function, mood, and energy.
Q: What other Performax Labs products can I stack with HyperMax?
HyperMax stacks extremely well with VasoMax in our PWO Stack. Also check out our Complete Stack for complete hormonal optimization.
Q: When should I take Performax Labs’ HyperMax?
Because of the caffeine and other stimulants in HyperMax, it should not be taken before bedtime. This preworkout is designed to be taken in the morning or afternoon.
