3DPUMP Breakthrough® [L-Citrulline (Vegan Fermented) (3000mg), Glycerol, Amla (Phyllanthus emblica) Fruit Extract]
3DPUMP Breakthrough® is a revolutionary new ingredient that is a patented combination of Fermented L-Citrulline, Glycerol (high yield), and a standardized extract of Amla Fruit. This ingredient supports increase vasodilation to the target muscle as well as improved endurance during training by utilizing complimentary pathways of action. If we break down each of these ingredients individually, we can begin to understand what makes this unique combination so beneficial.
- L-Citrulline - amino acid that converts to arginine and supports nitric oxide production, which aids blood flow and increase muscle pumps. Citrulline has also been shown to enhance exercise performance (particularly in resistance training protocols), boost power, reduce the onset of fatigue, and aid recovery.
- Glycerol - another common inclusion in pre workout supplements that serves as an osmolyte, which means it encourages muscle cells to attract and absorb more water. This increases cell volumization and cellular swelling, which not only enhances the pump but gives a full look to your muscles.
- Amla - has a long history of use in Indian medicine as a cardiotonic. It’s high in polyphenols and flavonoids (including pedunculagin, puniglucanin, emblicanin A, and emblicanin B) that are known to possess antioxidant activity and support cardiovascular health.
It’s common to find L-Citrulline and Glycerol amongst other nitric oxide and pump inducing ingredients with a track record of efficacy but the real question is if the addition of Amla enhances the experience. Studies have shown that this answer is undoubtedly yes! One study measured cell volumization and muscle swelling because of performing lower body exercises using multiple interventions, which included placebo, 1500mg glycerol, 150mg Amla, and 1350mg glycerol + 150mg Amla. The results showed that all interventions, including placebo, produced positive results on leg size and lean body mass, however, the glycerol + Amla produced significantly better results than the other interventions. The glycerol + Amla group increased their thigh circumference by 2.21 cm on average and had an increase of 693.1 grams in total body mass. These results make the combination of adding Amla to the already classic benefits of L-Citrulline and Glycerol extremely promising when it comes to making positive improves in your goals when it comes to sport performance products.
