Enhance Recovery And Increase Strength, Endurance, And Energy! Discover the "Holy Grail" of bodybuilding and athletic performance enhancement:maximizing lean gains and fat loss while enhancing recovery and increasing strength, endurance, and energy. Purple Wraath was created to be the most complete EAA/BCAA product on the market; keeping your body in a constant anabolic state and keeping you training hard with its added super endurance complex. Sound too good to be true? Keep reading¦ We all know that supplements are not a replacement for nutrition and training, but if you are looking for a supplement to enhance every part of your workout and take your gains to the next level... look no further than Purple Wraath by Controlled Labs. PurplEAA Complex: The Purple Wraath PurplEAA Complex is a very efficient formula based on the science of actual homo sapiens muscle protein and clinical studies on human amino acid assimilation. Essential Amino Acids (EAA's) are the "building blocks" of lean muscle mass, but the EAA's from whey protein can take hours to enter circulation. The solution is the Purple Wraath fast-acting, free-form PurplEAA Complex: While essential amino acids function cohesively as a group to aid in your training, additionally they each produce a significant benefit when it comes training: Leucine:Primary anabolic triggerEnhance recoveryOptimize hormone levels Valine:EnergyRecoveryGlucose productionNitrogen balanceAnti-inflammatory Isoleucine:EnergyRecoveryGlucose productionHormones Lysine:Beta-oxidationNitrogen balanceCalcium absorptionEnergy Arginine:VasodilatorNutrient deliveryAnti-Catabolic Histidine:VasodilatorSexual function Threonine:Nutrient uptakeImmune system Methionine:Enhance metabolismEnergyMoodAntioxidant Phenylalanine:EnergyHormonesMood It's important to understand that our EAA Complex includes all of the BCAA's (Branched Chain Amino Acids) that you have used in the past, including a precise ratio of leucine. Research shows that blood levels of these KEY amino acids are directly related to muscle protein synthesis, so we formulated a comprehensive and efficient matrix to enhance lean mass directly and indirectly, and under various conditions. Now, that ratio is important, but there are some other very exciting points about this formula. Unlike some of the amino acid supplements on the market, you aren't paying for cheap "filler" ingredients such as dextrose or maltodextrin when you purchase Purple Wraath. Also, we chose not to include the amino acid glutamine since it is not an essential amino acid, and our bodies can synthesize it on its own in sufficient quantities. Because the studies that we based this formula off of do not use tryptophan and since it has the potential for "sedative" like side affects, we designed Purple Wraath to be completely tryptophan-free. By combining intense exercise or weightlifting with the fast absorbing PurplEAA Complex you can rush nutrients into the active cells of your working muscles, creating an anabolic environment optimal for recovery and lean mass. What would an EAA product be without some amazing support ingredients? Good, but not great. To make this formula great we added the PurplEndurance Complex. PurplEndurance Complex: You can't create an optimal anabolic environment without intensity so Controlled Labs decided to take things to the extreme with Purple Wraath by including the ultimate caffeine-free Ergogenic Complex: So what does each of the ingredients in the PurplEndurance Complex do? Beta-Alanine:Helps increase aerobic efficiencyHelps enhance oxygen transportHelps to reduce lactic acid accumulationCitrulline Malate:Reduces Lactic Acid and AmmoniaBoosts energy productionHas an oxygen sparing effectBoosts mitochondrial function Betaine Anhydrous:Is a key osmotic/cellular hydration ingredientEnhances muscle fullnessActs as an energy enzyme protectorInduces the conversion of homocysteine to methionineElevates glutathione levelsPromotes liver healthHelps you maintain intracellular electrolytesEnhances metabolism Ginger:Aids in nutrient absorptionEnhances digestion/stomach functionProduces a nootropic effect Norvaline:Helps elevate naturally occurring eNOS As you can see, we have responded to customer demand and the result:Purple Wraath...the most advanced pre-workout product available!
