Introducing, Energized N'Gage Instantized BCAAs - a powerhouse of precision formulation. And when we say, “precision”, we mean it. You see, unlike “typical” energy and pre-workout products, this dynamic formula is not bogged down by ingredient overload. We are definitely not interested in “wowing” you with a long supplement facts panel – we'll leave that strategy for the “other guys.” Instead, we are interested in getting you results.
Energized N'Gage Instantized BCAAs offers a precise, efficacious dose of four anabolic amino acids: the three Branched Chain Amino Acids and L-Glutamine. Why just these four? Of all the amino acids, these four may offer the most direct impact on growth, recovery and lean muscle preservation. Now, we could have included a few more of the essential amino acids into the mix (like other products), but we just didn't see the need. Why would we add more types of amino acids into the formula when we could just add higher amounts of the ones that really matter? Remember, this is a precision formula.*
Of course, nothing but the absolute best amino acids available would do for this product. After all, we're Axis Labs - you can count on us to formulate with premium grade ingredients. That's why all of the amino acids in Energized N'Gage are only ultra premium AjiPure Amino Acids - the pinnacle of quality. Derived exclusively from botanical sources, AjiPure Amino Acids are instantized for maximum solubility, bioavailability, and absorption. For you, this means easy mixing, a super clean taste, no gritty residue, and ultra-fast amino acid availability.*
The question that may still be burning in your mind is, “Why incorporate caffeine into a BCAA formula?” The answer is quite simple, really. We developed Energized N'Gage to deliver pure performance. Now, let's define “performance.” Performance is a term most often associated with physical performance. However, there is such a thing as “mental performance.” Incidentally, physical performance and mental performance are not independent. For example; it is difficult to achieve a great workout if you are not focused. Likewise, staying focused during a workout is difficult when your body is sore from the last training session.*
Caffeine is a naturally-occurring compound that offers three invigorating benefits. First, caffeine is well noted for its role in stimulating focus and mental acuity. Second, caffeine is associated with influencing lipolysis – the breakdown of stored fats for use as fuel. Third, caffeine supports strong muscle contractions through “mind-muscle” connections. These powerful factors make caffeine and the Branched Chain Amino Acids a perfect match for a wide range of scenarios. For example, many athletes use BCAAs prior to a training session to support energy production and lean muscle protection. Regular users of BCAAs report that a mid-afternoon serving helps them to stay energized while supporting recovery. Still, others consume BCAAs first thing in the morning to start “feeding” their hungry muscles. In each of these examples, the mind and muscle supporting attributes of caffeine offer a complimentary host of benefits.*
Energized N'Gage is the ideal addition to virtually anyone's supplement regimen. Use Energized N'Gage instead of coffee for a delicious, “eye-opening” jolt of invigorating muscle support. Use a scoop of Energized N'Gage before a workout to help fully engage the body and mind for an intense training session. Use mid-afternoon for a muscle-fueling “pick-me-up.” When you need something to clear the mental “cobwebs” at work, have a scoop of Energized N'Gage. You’ll get a BCAA-infused blast of “energized motivation” that will have you pumping through projects in no time. Bottom line - Energized N'Gage is all about fueling results.*
BCAAs - Rediscovered
For years, the BCAAs have been hailed as having a unique capacity to drive performance, recovery and growth... and for good reason. Human muscle is comprised of a specific sequence and ratio of essential amino acids (EAAs) - a substantial portion of that ratio being the BCAAs: L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine.*
Now, intense exercise and sport requires volumes of readily available fuel to power muscles. As the body's “standard” energy reserves become depleted, it may begin converting amino acids into useable fuel. Here is where things get interesting. The BCAAs (and Glutamine) are some of the very first amino acids to be “stripped” from muscle to be used for energy.
Now, since such a large portion of muscle protein is comprised of the BCAAs, and because the BCAAs are the first to be “pulled” from muscle during exercise, it goes without saying that re-supplying damaged muscles with BCAAs post-exercise has profound, growth and performance-specific implications.*
Instantized BCAAs (iBCAA)
At Axis Labs, we always take the science of performance supplementation to the next level. You see, we could have simply formulated a standard BCAA product and launched it as something “new and exciting.” However, our integrity and pride for excellence continually guide our every move. As such, we tasked ourselves to develop a truly unique BCAA supplement.
So, we went back to the proverbial “drawing board” of BCAA research. What we found was “instantized” AjiPure BCAAs. This was groundbreaking news. You see the BCAAs are, by nature, rapidly assimilated into the body. However, through instantizing technology, BCAAs may be launched at hyper-physiological speeds to hungry muscles. Simply put, ultra-fast absorption of BCAAs offers the potential for them to drive performance, growth and recovery faster, and more efficiently than previously possible.*
The 2:1:1 Factor
OK. By now you've gathered that BCAA supplementation is important. Furthermore, Axis Lab's N'GAGE delivers ultra-premium (pharmaceutical-grade) BCAAs that are instantized for maximum absorption. You get it. It makes sense. But there is more to this story, much more. Remember our guiding principles of integrity and pride for excellence? Well, the truth of the matter is that we had enough technology to launch N'Gage as it was. However, we just weren't satisfied. Here’s why.
Although all three of the BCAAs are highly important, one of them stands apart as a growth-inducing juggernaut. That is L-Leucine. L-Leucine triggers an array of “downstream” metabolic pathways that directly, and indirectly support performance. For example, not only does L-Leucine support protein synthesis (that’s muscle growth), it also functions as a trigger for insulin production and release. Insulin, as you may well know, is a highly anabolic hormone that “delivers” nutrients to tissues – thus driving performance, growth and recovery.*
In order to take full advantage of the power of L-Leucine, we formulated N'Gage with a 2:1:1 ratio of L-Leucine to L-Isoleucine and L-Valine.
Because we were striving for a truly impactful Recovery/Anabolic/Anti-Catabolic amino acid complex, we knew that N'Gage would not be complete without a healthy dose of Glutamine. Here’s why. Glutamine, by far, is the most abundant free amino acid in the body, and in muscle tissue. Furthermore, Glutamine is used in a broad range of physiological processes that are not necessarily “bodybuilding” related. In fact, much of naturally produced Glutamine may be quickly “ravaged” by the body before it even has a chance to go to work in muscles.*
This makes Glutamine a “conditionally essential” amino acid for tissue repair. In other words, in times when your body can’t make enough of its own Glutamine to sustain all of its needs, it “becomes” essential. Therefore, supplemental Glutamine is incredibly beneficial. So, we obviously had an obligation to include a dose of Glutamine in our new formulation.
Of course, we didn't just go with just “any old” Glutamine – that is not the Axis Labs way. We chose the very best source of Glutamine we could find. AjiPure Glutamine, to be specific. AjiPure Glutamine is a premium, pharmaceutical-grade product produced under stringent cGMP manufacturing regulations.
The Catalyst of Protein Synthesis
Between the synergy of instantized BCAAs and pharmaceutical – grade AnjiPure Glutamine, N'Gage had plenty of body-fueling power. But we still weren't fully satisfied. We wanted to be certain, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that the N'Gage formulation was fully compliant with our strict standards of efficacy. In other words – it had to work even better than our initial expectations.*
To ensure that the amino acids in N'Gage had a fighting chance to be fully utilized for our intended purpose (Recovery/Anabolic/Anti-Catabolic) we still had one small “tweak” remaining in the formulation. Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxine HCL) was the missing key that allowed us to crank the final adjustment. The reason is simple. Vitamin B6 works as a catalyst in the body to support complete utilization of amino acids – helping to drive protein synthesis.*
