Jack3D by USPLabs: What's In It?
1)Geranium (1,3-Dimethylamylamine or Methylhexamine)
One of the most potent and effective stimulant compounds on the market today. Geranium promotes a response by the Central Nervous System, which causes feelings of energy, alertness, elevated mood, focus, and a drive to do high quality WORK. This compound is derived from natural sources, but has been shown to be stronger than even ephedrine - falling just short of the effects of the amphetamine family. All of this and Geranium remains completely legal!
What's more is that Geranium has the side effect of increased fat loss due to it's appetite suppressant effects.
One focus inducing stimulant not enough for you? Jack3d also contains Schizadra, which has been shown in double-blind studies to have a stimulant effect on brain AND body. And to have the ultimate workout, you need both.
But wait - brain and body stimulation - Aren't those just marketing terms that describe the same thing? Hardly. On physical tasks, Schizadra has been shown to increase the amount of work which muscles can perform before failure by a ridiculous 222% while also increasing respiratory capacity and cardio function. For mental tasks, this compound has outperformed the amphetamine family on tasks involving tests of focus and concentration. And all of this with no crash.
And Schizadra isn't just for throwing iron around. Endurance athletes in cardio based events such as marathons have shown faster times, reduced fatigue, and a higher vascular capacity for longer distances.
If that weren't enough, Schizadrol is one of the few stimulants of it's kind which doesn't lead to increased catabolic hormone levels. In fact, Schizadrol has been found in some trials to actually lower cortisol levels (cortisol increases during intense work, but has the nasty effect of preventing recovery and muscle growth). So not only are you working harder and longer, you're getting a head start on your recovery so that you can start synthesizing new muscle faster and reach your size and strength goals more quickly!
3)Methylxanthines (Caffeine & Theophylline)
These stimulants work both on their own, and as "helpers" to the more potent stims listed above. Both are in the methylxanthine stimulant family. Like many other stims, they have a stimulant effect on the central nervous system, contributing to focus and energy while fighting fatigue and increasing the amount of time it takes to get to muscle failure.
The same way that caffeine has a synergistic effect on many stimulants such as ephedrine or amphetamines, it is also thought to potentiate the effects of Geranium. So rather than a simple 1 + 1 = 2 effect with these stimulants, it's more of a compound effect, where the methylxanthines work on their own while at the same time making the Geranium even more potent.
While the other compounds in USP Labs Jack3d supplement work on both mind and body, Beta-Alanine is a pre workout just for your muscles which affects Carnosine levels in your body.
As you may know, Carnosine is a dipeptide found in skeletal muscle and other "excitable" tissues in the body. It helps these tissues to function, allowing them to move longer and faster at a cellular level while also preventing acid build up in these same tissues and preventing fatigue. By increasing the levels of Carnosine in the muscles, you improve the ability of the muscles to do work, while at the same time prolonging the time taken to reach failure.
Beta-alanine is what is known as a "rate-limiter" for carnosine. So by increasing beta-alanine levels in the body, you are increasing carnosine levels as a result. You might not feel the stimulant effect mentally from beta-alanine like you will with the more classical stims in Jack3d, but your muscles will feel the difference!
Cellular energy levels in the muscles is a complicated topic. We've already covered mental stimulation and increased Carnosine levels, but now we need to get past one other cause of muscle fatigue. And once again, Jack3d has you covered.
This last cause of muscle fatigue is lowered ATP in your muscle cells. ATP is a high energy nucleotide which is the major carrier of energy at a cellular level. When we work out, the ATP in our skeletal muscles loses a phosphate, and is converted to ADP.
Creatine supplementation increases the intramuscular levels of phosphocreatine. This in turn makes a phosphate available to turn ADP back into ATP and get your muscular energy back to baseline levels, lowering fatigue and allowing you to lift more weight for a longer amount of time.
Jack3d - What's NOT In It?
What's not in Jack3d is just as important as what is. A lot of pre workout supplements contain the following ingredients, which are COUNTERPRODUCTIVE to great work outs and massive gains.
1)MALTODEXTRIN (This Crap is Worse Than Sugar!)
Maltodextrin is anathema to gaining muscle and losing fat. It causes insulin levels to skyrocket and leads your body to start storing fat. As an athlete, you don't want that period. But with pre workout supplements that contain maltodextrin, you're getting a fat storing insulin spike right as you begin your workout, which is pretty much the worst possible time for it!
Maltodextrin will make you fat!
- •Maltodextrin has a glycemic index of 105 . By comparison, Glucose is 100 and Sucrose (plain old sugar, just like you'd find in soda) is only 61!
- •Most of the top selling pre workout supplements contain large amounts of maltodextrin. 6 to 10 grams per scoop and up to 30 grams per serving is not uncommon. You might as well drink a can of Pepsi before you start your workout!
- •Maltodextrin is a filler. It makes the package look bigger so that you think you're getting more. In fact, it just leads to higher shipping costs and has a DETRIMENTAL effect on your workout!
- •Many companies disguise the Maltodextrin in their pre workout supplements as "glucose polymers". Don't be fooled!
Many of the top brands of pre workout supplements are loaded with excess magnesium. Jack3d is completely magnesium free. While we need some magnesium in our bodies, an excess can have a LAXATIVE effect. Many other pre workouts use magnesium as a filler. They end up running to the bathroom every 10 minutes during their workout, and chalk it up to the stimulant effect, when actually it's the magnesium that is stealing precious minutes from their workout time just so that they can empty their bowels!
When magnesium is used as a filler in other pre workout supplements, you are paying more money for something that has a detrimental effect on your workout. Doesn't make much sense does it? Jack3d by USP Labs is completely magnesium free.
Artificial colors are the substances with the long scientific sounding names listed in the ingredients of many pre workout supplements. They use them because it's an easy method for disguising the nasty taste of the drink. These compounds are DANGEROUS and some people speculate that they are actually contributing to the high rates of cancer in modern society.
Jack3d uses only natural coloring and flavoring. Just check the label.
Most pre workout supplements taste like crap - let's be honest here. This is because of all of the harsh filler ingredients that they use, which they then try to disguise with nasty artificial flavors.
Jack3d skips the fillers and uses only natural flavoring, leading to a flavor that makes you actually WANT to drink it. Without the fillers, Jack3d needs only 4-8oz of water as a mixer. It goes down easy and smooth - you'll be tempted to sip on it as a regular beverage!
