 Dymatize’s Energized Xpand

Description

Dymatize's Energized Xpand uses cutting edge technology to deliver an advanced pre and post-workout drink mix. It contains Creatine Ester Fusion with four types of creatine, Arginine Fusion to promote NO (nitrous oxide) production, Glutamine Fusion, Xpansion Matrix and Energized Matrix to maximize recovery, blood sugar levels and energy. Energized Xpand is a NO reactor specially designed for hard training athletes to promote greater pumps (muscle expansion), explosive energy and maximum creatine uptake during workouts.

Creatine Ester Fusion combines creatine derivatives creatine ethyl ester malate, tricreatine citrate, creatine ester phosphate and creatine AKG. It also contains glycocyamine, a creatine precursor that helps support the body's own creatine production. These more soluble forms of creatine allow for better absorption than generic creatine monohydrate. They require no loading; preventing "creatine bloat" side effects. Research reports that creatine promotes muscle mass, energy, strength, endurance and recovery.

Arginine Fusion blends arginine derivatives AAKG (arginine alpha ketoglutarrate), AEE (arginine ethyl ester), arginine HCL and arginine ketoisokaproate. NO is a natural pump that stimulates vasodilation (opens blood vessels) and increases blood flow to the muscles. Arginine and citrulline support NO production and promote pumps, endurance and recovery from exercise. Glutamine Fusion (glutamine AKG, N-acetyl glutamine) helps prevent muscle tissue breakdown and support muscle repair.

Xpansion Matrix and Energized Matrix's proprietary blend of nutrients help maintain healthy blood sugar levels and enhance energy production. The trace mineral vanadryl sulfate (or vanadium), amino acid taurine and Cinnnulin PF (cinnamon extract) help regulate glucose (sugar) levels in the blood. The amino acid tyrosine (a neurotransmitter precursor) and botanical vinca alkaloids (vinpocetine and vincamine) enhance blood flow and energy production in the brain. Caffeine is a proven mental and physical performance enhancer with powerful stimulant effects. NAC, a modified form of the amino acid cysteine. is a natural antioxidant that can help prevent toxic free radical cell damage, speed recovery, boost muscle gain and reduce muscle fatigue during exercise.


Pros

Energized Xpand is a powerful pre and post-workout drink mix. Each serving contains only 24 calories, with zero sugar and fat. It conveniently mixes instantly and doesn't require a blender.

Energized Xpand has the following benefits:

  • Creatine Ester Fusion promotes maximum creatine uptake without creatine bloat
  • Arginine Fusion supports NO production for enhanced pumps
  • Xpansion Matrix maintains healthy blood sugar levels
  • Energized Matrix boosts energy levels and recovery

Cons

Large amounts of arginine can lead to diarrhea, weakness and nausea. Arginine may promote viral growth and replication, such as genital herpes.

It has not been determined if long-term use of tyrosine in large amounts (more than 1,000 mg per day) is safe. Long-term use of tyrosine should be monitored by a health care professional.

Stomach upset, diarrhea, nausea, bloating and muscle cramping have been reported with creatine use.

Glycocyamine can increase harmful homocysteine levels in the blood. At least four times the amount of betaine must be taken to counteract this side effect.

Vanadyl sulfate in large doses (greater than 10 mcg per day) may be toxic. Mild side effects may include diarrhea and loss of appetite.

Caffeine may cause insomnia, trembling, anxiety, and urinary frequency. Individuals sensitive to caffeine should avoid taking Xpand.

Pregnant or lactating women or people with pre-existing medical conditions or viral conditions such as herpes should not supplement with Energized Xpand without consulting a physician.
