AmentoPumpTM is the plant essence of Selaginella tamariscina containing amentoflavone whose “claim to fame” is the ability to directly enhance strength. AmentoPumpTM has some very interesting properties, varying from increased fat breakdown to vasodilation, which may also increase the body's ability to get nutrients into muscle cells
AmentoPumpTM is an incredibly potent and multifunctional ingredient. It has the added benefits of aiding with fat loss and improving insulin sensitivity, making it an optimal ingredient in any pre-workout or fat burner.
Multiple Functions of AmentoPumpTM
Increased power output
Improved fat loss
Heightened insulin sensitivity
The pump has the huge benefit of stimulating a greater mineral intake by muscle cells and blood flowing into the muscle that feeds it. This is why it looks like your muscles actually grow while you experience 'the pump.'
AmentoPumpTM is a very effective nitric oxide pump enhancer because it inhibits PDE, while blocking the metabolism of cAMP and cGMP. As a result, your dilated veins allow blood flow more freely, giving you monster pumps.
Being a PDE inhibitor, specifically PDE-5, amentoflavone increases vasodilation which results in bigger and badder pumps during training due to the increased blood flow reaching the muscles. More blood flow also means more nutrients are shuttled to the muscle allowing you to workout for longer periods of time.
Improved fat loss
By blocking PDE with AmentoPumpTM , you will get a double negative at cAMP levels, resulting in a positive increase. This results in stimulation of fat loss.
AmentoPumpTM indirectly increases cAMP levels in adipose tissues which subsequently activates a variety of transcription factors and other enzymes in the RNA. This chain reaction results in greater lipolysis, the breakdown and release of stored fat from those pesky trouble spots.
Reduced fatty acid synthesis
AmentoPumpTM has demonstrated the ability to inhibit fatty acid synthase, a target for metabolic syndrome, which is responsible for the endogenous synthesis. It acting on the opposite side of the coin by preventing the body from forming new fatty acids
Boost overall mood
The mood enhancements of AmentoPumpTM will keep the user engaged and focused to push through a brutal workout till the end. Besides, the user will be able to ignore food cravings, so they can reduce calories and increase fat loss along with it.
AmentoPumpTM interacts with the GABA-A receptor by acting as a negative modulator. in the brain can give a strong sense of alertness and focus. Additionally, amentoflavone can also increase serotonin production in the body, which is yet another positive aspect of this compound.
AmentoPumpTM interacts with the GABA-A receptor by acting as a negative modulator. This would produce a central stimulant effect by inducing wakefulness to give a strong sense of alertness and focus. In addition, AmentoPumpTM can also increase serotonin production in the body, which is yet another positive aspect.
Enhanced Muscular Strength & Endurance
AmentoPumpTM has a well-documented effect on vasodilation as described above. The well-documented mechanism of increasing exercise performance helps supply meet the demand of exercising muscle tissue. In addition to this, AmentoPumpTM provides a relatively unique mechanism for increasing power output: increased Ca2+ release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum. By increasing intracellular Ca2+ downstream of the signal for muscle contraction, binding to troponin-C is increased and the force of muscular contraction, on a cell-by-cell basis.
Increased Ca2+ release
The key to a full and complete muscular contraction is the release of calcium into the muscle cells. The more calcium available at the muscle's disposal, the greater the force of the contraction. AmentoPumpTM is a good alternative to ordinary pre-workout supplements filled with caffeine. It helps direct calcium right to the muscle cells, which is a weapon you should take advantage of AmentoPumpTM is far more effective. Unlike caffeine though, amentoflavone is 20 times more effective at raising calcium concentrations than that of its stimulating counterpart.
*To get similar results you would have to take a dangerous amount of caffeine, leading to a crash and ruining your sleep patterns.
Heightened insulin sensitivity
Inhibits the enzyme PTP1B
PTP1B is an enzyme involved in insulin signaling, and inhibition of PTP1B is being investigated as a possible treatment for obesity and diabetes. PTP1B inhibition will chiefly improve insulin sensitivity by augmenting insulin’s actions within the cell at a lower circulating level of insulin. AmentoPumpTM can chiefly improve insulin sensitivity by inhibiting the enzyme PTP1B.
Reduce circulating lipid concentrations
Along the same lines, AmentoPumpTM has been shown to reduce circulating lipids , making it of further potential benefit to obesity and metabolic syndrome.
Individual doses range from 50mg to 1000mg per day. Many most pre workouts and fat burners will take it before working out at 100-500mg in order to give them an extra boost, pumps, and focus during their workouts.
