MAX CAPACITY

What is Max Capacity?

Max Capacity is the perfect pre-workout supplement; it enhances both your mental focus and physical capacity. Alpha-GPC, a very bioavailable form of choline, adds to mental focus. Herbal adaptogens like rhodiola and ginseng alter your RPE (rate of perceived exertion). Cordyceps is one of the few substances that has been proven to raise lactate threshold.

What’s in Max Capacity?

Cordyceps: A fungi of the mushroom family, with a long history of use in alternative medicine. It is classified as entomopathogenic, because it lives off insects. It is known as the “caterpillar fungus” because it invades and eventually replaces the caterpillar tissue. It has very active biological components in the form of polysaccharides and constitutes like cordycepic acid, which have shown to alter lactate threshold and mitochondrial ATP generation

Rhodiola Rosea: A potent adaptogen that has been the focus of much research. Rhodiola provides a buffer to stress-related mental and physical fatigue.  Rhodiola contains a glycoside known as salisdroside. This component helps combat anxiety and aging, and has been investigated for use in high-altitude sickness, as it modulates EPO gene expression. Rhodiola suppresses the production of cortisol and increases levels of stress-resistant proteins. Studies have found that it restores normal patterns of eating and sleeping after stress, & combats mental and physical fatigue by affecting RPE (perception to STRESS).

Alpha-GPC: Alpha-glycerophosphocholine is a form of choline that is highly bioavailable, and is classified as a cholingeric. Cholinergics are compounds that, after consumption, increase levels of acetylcholine in the brain. Increased acetylcholine can lead to improvements in muscle power and contraction, as well as possibly increased reflexes and capacity to learn.

Eleutherococcus Senticosus: Commonly known as Siberian Ginseng or in Chinese medicine Ci Wu Ju. Although it is not related to true ginseng (Panax ginseng), the name Siberian ginseng became popular based on potential properties similar to Panax ginseng. This adaptogenic herb has both properties of increasing work capacity and immunity. Increased work capacity is thought to be due to increased oxygen efficiency through FFA use. Immunomodulating polysaccharides or saponins isolated from Siberian ginseng stimulate macrophages, promoted antibody formation, activated complement, and increased T lymphocyte proliferation.
