24k Effect: The increased flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients to your muscles will cause an immediate surge in power; followed by a “tingly” sensation, providing extended mental focus, strength, and endurance when performing any physical activity.*
EACH SERVING OF 24K STRENGTH FORMULA CONTAINS OVER 2 MG OF GENUINE 24 KARAT (24K) GOLD.
24k Strength Formula dramatically increases Nitric Oxide in the body, an important cell signaling molecule that promotes increased vascularity and muscular pumps. However, 24k increases Nitric Oxide through both the eNOS and iNOS pathways. This is an important distinction to make, as most other formulas only increase Nitric Oxide through a single pathway – the eNOS pathway.
Then there’s the energy and focus. 24k combines only the non-negotiable essentials proven the world over to increase energy and mental performance. You can be confident knowing the physical and mental energy from 24k is proven powerful and effective, and guaranteed not to make you crash. The same cannot be said for other energy/strength supplements.
Of utmost importance is the health component – a major advantage to using 24k. Every serving is loaded with powerful antioxidants to help protect cellular integrity and reduce free radical damage. This is often overlooked in many other pre-workouts, and in our opinion, is essential to promoting greater gains and faster recovery in addition to promoting overall health.
Finally, you have tried, tested, and proven sources of raw performance fuel. Unlike other strength and energy supplements that rely on a heavy dose of harsh stimulants to increase power, 24k uses proven ingredients to load up and fuel your muscle cells at a molecular level. The end result is muscle tissue that contracts harder and fatigues slower, creating the perfect stimulus for greater size and strength adaptations
- Contains Creatine monohydrate
- Citrulline Malate can promote muscle pumps
- Beta-Alanine can boost muscular endurance
24K contains 3 different types of Creatine:
- Hydrchloride (HCI)
- Magna Power
This is a good thing, as you?ll need over 10,000mg per day to over-dose on it ? the overall dosage of Creatine in 24K is just below 3,000mg, which is a good amount.
This ensures you?ll experience increased strength and endurance. However, only Creatine Monohydrate is proven to work in studies conducted with humans.
This is a great ingredient for enhancing your muscle pumps when dosed correctly. This is the problem.
The optimal dosage of Citrulline Malate is 6,000mg; 24K only contains 1,500mg (1.5g), meaning it?s seriously under-dosed here.
Ultimately, this means you?re not likely to experience any boosts in your muscle pumps with 24K pre-workout.
This is believed to improve your muscle pumps ? but Arginine is ineffective when orally supplemented.
This is because Arginine has a poor absorption rate. For this reason, Citrulline Malate is the best ingredient to improve your muscle pumps ? Gamma Labs should?ve just raised the dosage of Citrulline to 6,000mg.
This is shown to reduce cramping, but doesn?t offer any improvements to your strength or endurance. But it comes with no side effects either.
This ingredient hasn?t shown to offer any benefits at all. But it can cause fishy odors in your breath and sweat ? which won?t affect your gym session to be fair.
Caffeine can be a key pre-workout ingredient when dosed correctly (between 150-200mg).
24K contains 300mg, which is a high dosage ? his can result in jitters and energy crashes, especially in those who are sensitive to caffeine.
Also known as GMS, this is most used as a thickening agent in such foods as; ice cream, whipped cream and products like oils and waxes.
As you can see, it?s not going to do much to improve your gym session ? it?s in here simply to thicken up the drink once the powder is dissolved in water.
Velvet Bean Seed Extract
Also known as Mucuna Pruriens, this has shown to be very effective in boosting your testosterone levels. In fact, it?s in one of our favoritetestbooster supplements for this reason.
However, a boost in T-Levels isn?t a key benefit of a pre-workout ? so this isn?t really needed in 24K (especially as there?s only 20mg of it ? you need at least 300mg of Velvet Bean Seed Extract per serving).
This has shown to boost your cognition, but doesn?t offer any other benefit. Also, it?s optimal dosage is at least 175mg (theres only 10mg in 24K, so it?s been seriously under-dosed).
Gamma Labs should?ve replaced this with L-Carnitine, which has shown to reduce fatigue and muscle damage, while improving cognition (focus).
L-Norvaline is mistakenly believed to improve your nitric oxide levels. However, no studies back this up.
This is what 24K is based around. Real Gold ? the same you find in jewellery and some alcoholic beverages.
The reason it?s found in alcoholic drinks, is because it?s believed to cut your throat slightly and help the drink enter your system faster. So we imagine that Gamma Labs has added Gold in their pre-workout to make it work faster.
However, there?s no problem with the usual pre-workout time frame of 20-30 minutes before your workout. All this has done, is make it look cooler and increased the price of the product.
Bacopa Leaf Extract
This is another ingredient that?s supposed to improve your cognition. However, there?s only 0.05mg of this inside 24K ? you need at least 300mg of this stuff for it to work.
0.05 of any ingredient won?t work ? it?s as simple as that, which is the same reason ATP isn?t going to be effective either.
