X-CELL FORTE is the ULTIMATE COMBINATION of AMINO ACIDS! These highly absorbable amino acids are specially designed for top athletic performance. Below you will learn about the complexity of the X-CELL formula and how each of the ingredients efficiently works to enhance STRENGTH, ENDURANCE, GROWTH AND RECOVERY in the human body.
Arginine (AAR) 1800 mg
Arginine’s place within the X-cell formula is well earned considering its position within one of the body’s crucial biochemical pathways. Said pathway (the Urea Cycle) metabolizes nitrogen and protein. Furthermore, the pathway requires five major enzymes for the cycle to be completed, but it is arginine that stimulates the activity of the first enzyme, carbamyl phosphate synthetase. Consequently, because of the fact that a deficiency of Arginine increases urea formation it can be determined that arginine has a key role in the regulation of protein metabolism throughout the body and is regarded as an essential amino acid for optimum growth. Additionally, arginine is key in muscle metabolism within the body. High-energy compounds such as Guanidophosphate, phosphoarginine, and creatine, which all used in muscles, are all derived from arginine.
Therefore, arginine place within the X-cell is to Enhances Growth, Recovery, Endurance, and Size.
Common Dietary Sources of Arginine
Meat, nuts, eggs, and dairy products
Glutamine 3000 mg
To begin with, Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid present in muscle as well as plasma. Following intense exercise, scientists have observed drastic reduction in the amount of glutamine within the muscle and plasma. When glutamine is ingested orally the glutamine homeostasis is restored and reduces the inflammation. Post-workout entails muscle damage (strength loss and soreness), so the oral ingestion of glutamine through the X-cell formula Enhances Recovery and Strength.
Common Dietary Sources of Glutamine
Cabbage, beets, beef, chicken, fish, beans, and dairy products
DMG (Dimethylglycine) 800 mg
DMG is an amino acid that has a history of efficient use by athletes everywhere. Often hailed as a key supplement in endurance training it is required for optimum growth in humans. In experiments, diets supplemented with DMG in experimental animals resulted in increased nitrogen retention as well as better amino acid absorption following an injury. As a result, DMG was inferred to play a direct role in recovery, which remains a key justification to add it to the essential blend of amino acids within X-cell. Oral ingestion of DMG has the potential to Enhance Growth, Stamina, and Recovery.
Common Dietary Sources of DMG
Meat, nuts, eggs, and dairy products
Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA)
Valine 800mg, Iso-Leucine 630mg, Leucine 1250mg
First off, the importance of BCAA cannot be underlined enough. These three amino acids are critical to human life and are involved in stress, energy, and muscle metabolism. BCAA are unique in that skeletal muscles directly use them as an energy source. Additionally, BCAA are anabolic, meaning that they promote protein synthesis directly within the muscles. Leucine in particular is responsible for stimulating said protein synthesis in the muscle. Furthermore, Leucine has been associated with the release of insulin, which itself stimulates protein synthesis. Despite the structural similarity between the three BCAA each has a different metabolic route, with Valine going solely to carbohydrates, Leucine solely to fats and iso-leucine to both. This exemplifies the importance of BCAA with energy and muscle growth. BCAA work to Enhance, Growth, and Recovery of muscles.
Common Dietary Source of BCAA
Meat, nuts, eggs, and dairy products
Creatine 900 mg
Although creatine is not technically an amino acid it is derived from L-arginine, DMG, and L-methionine, two of which are present with the X-cell formula. Creatine is classified as an organic nitrogenous acid that deals primarily in energy supply to the muscle. The most pronounced effect of creatine within the body is an increase in the ability to sustain power output on repetitive maximal exercise. Additionally, athletes utilize creatine to increase in size. The reason creatine is included in the X-cell formula is to Enhance Size and Strength.
Common Dietary Source of Creatine
Beef, Salmon, and Tuna
Ribose 1000 mg
To begin with, the athletic and scientific communities have recognized ribose as an effective supplement for improving muscle energy. Additionally, ribose has to ability to alleviate cramps and soreness, which are associated with athletic performance. The reasoning for including ribose in the X-Cell formula is because of its ability to Enhance Endurance and Recovery.
Meat, nuts, and dairy products
Beta-Alanine 750 mg
Beta-alanine is a naturally occurring beta-amino acid that is on the rise in the exercise community. It was included in the X-cell formula because of its ability to raise muscle carnosine concentrations. Carnosine is responsible for returning the muscle pH to a normal level. A drop in muscle pH is a major contributor to muscle fatigue. Beta-alanine is most effective in supporting exercising that is maintained of extended period of time. Therefore, beta-alanine Enhances Recovery, Strength, and Endurance.
Common Dietary Sources of Beta-Alanine
It is not present in free-form but through dipeptides in protein rich foods.
CEE3 (Creatine Ethyl Esther Malate) 750 mg
CEE3 is similar to Creatine Monohydrate but with an esther attached. This attachment allows for the body to absorb the creatine faster and with more efficiency. CEE3 eliminates the chance of bloating, which is possible with excess creatine monohydrate. The added esther enables the creatine to bypass its normal aversion to water, which is the cause of bloating. Essentially, the X-cell formula combines both the creatine monohydrate with the CEE3 to create a more efficient delivery of creatine, while reducing excess water retention and Enhancing Size and Strength.
C-AKG(Creatine-Alpha-Ketoglutarate) 750 mg
The benefits of attaching creatine to alpha-ketoglutarate are in the actions of the AKG itself. The AKG acts as a transport in bringing the creatine to the targeted muscle cells. What this means, is an even more efficient way of getting creatine into your muscle thereby Enhancing Size and Strength.
Citrulline Malate 500 mg
Citrulline is a precursor to arginine and because of this fact; it is as good as if not better in its results. Many gym fanatics report mental clarity and an increased blood flow to muscles due to this amino acid. Furthermore, citrulline malate is directly linked in the removal of lactic acid and ammonia from the blood, both of which are responsible for fatigue. Additionally, citrulline stimulates energy and boosNon-GMO - Gluten-Free - Hypoallergenic Certified Pure - No Fillers or Additivests the immune system, which is critical for high intensity workouts. Therefore, the justification for including citrulline malate in the X-cell formula is because it Enhances Endurance, Size, and Recovery.
Dietary Sources of Citrulline
OKG (Ornithine Alpha-Ketoglutarate) 425 mg
To begin with, orally supplemented, ornithine can be converted by the body into arginine, glutamine, and proline. With increased amounts of glutamine and arginine in the tissue, the body responds with an increase of growth hormone levels and protein synthesis. Furthermore, OKG is a combination of two molecules of ornithine and one molecule of alpha-ketoglutarate. Taking OKG has been shown to decrease muscle protein breakdown while maintaining increased protein synthesis. Therefore, X-cell includes OKG because it Enhances Growth, Size, and Recovery.
Dietary Sources of Ornithine
AAKG-KIC (Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate-Ketoisocaproate) 2200 mg
The alpha-ketoglutarate-ketoisocaproate acts as a more efficient transport of arginine which, as previously mentioned, Enhances Growth, Recovery, Endurance, and Size of Muscles.
Acetyl L-Carnitine 500 mg
Carnitine can be synthesized in the body and is a crucial element in providing energy to the muscles. The more carnitine available, the faster fat is transported and the more fat is oxidized to create ATP. The X-cell formula utilizes carnitine as a way to Enhance Endurance.
Dietary Sources of Carnitine
Common in muscle meats especially beef, pork and lamb.
L-Lysine 100 mg
Lysine is considered to be an essential amino acid and is found in high concentrations in muscle. Lysine must be consumed because it cannot be synthesized within the body. The amino acid plays a crucial role in calcium absorption. Additionally, lysine works with other amino acids to Enhance Size and Growth.
Dietary Sources of Lysine
Legumes, dairy, fish, and meat
