IMPORTANT NOTE: PreWorkouts contain ingredients that are classified as "hygroscopic". This means that they may absorb moisture from the environment. This may result in your preworkout clumping or hardening into blocks. This is a normal and predictable behaviour of these ingredients and does not mean that there is anything wrong with the product and does not affect the efficacy of the product. Simply break up the clumps use as normal. To slow down the hygroscopic effect, always store your preworkout in a cool dry place and away from moisture (not in the fridge). NEVER place a wet spoon inside your preworkout container.
The Pump Igniter™ is a true one-of-a-kind pre-workout supplement designed to prime the mind and supercharge your body for outrageous workouts and incredible results. Pump Igniter™ has changed the pre-workout supplement industry forever by taking it to a new level with HydroCarn™ - Beta-alanine HCL, incredible nootropics, and No2 and No3 boosting science.
Pump Igniter™ is a pre-workout supplement designed to get your butt off the couch, fire you up for a great workout, and keep you motivated, energized, and pumped, so you can get the absolute most out of your time in the gym. Pump Igniter™ is formulated to help boost your:
- Drive, Energy & Endurance, Power, Pump, Focus, Mood
MOTIVATION - If you have the motivation, anything is possible. So the research and development team at Top Secret Nutrition focused their efforts on creating a pre-workout supplement that not only primes and supports the body for higher performance and the best possible workout, but also stimulates the mind to drive it. The ideal pre-workout supplement should start to work BEFORE you get to the gym and really come to life once you are there. Our innovation will extend your workouts and help you achieve your true potential in the gym. That's why we developed Pump Igniter™.
Increasing motivation is an intricate process that involves desire, reward and state of mind. The Pump Igniter™ is designed to support this process by fueling your desire, accelerating your reward response system, and putting you in a controlled state of mind that is conducive to getting the best results from your efforts in the gym. The brain chemistry associated with motivation is extremely complex and still not totally understood by science. Here's what we know today:
THE DOPAMINE FACTOR - Low dopamine equates to low motivation. In a large portion of the population dopamine appears to be a major contributor in goal-directed behavior such as working out. According to an article in Monitor on Psychology, dopamine is associated with motor control, motivation, and desire.
WHY WE LIKE TO LISTEN TO MUSIC WHILE WORKING OUT - We listen to music because it stimulates the release of dopamine into our systems while we work out. In 2012, a McGill University study featured in the journal Nature Neuroscience correlated listening to music with dopamine releases. Scientists measured changes in skin conductance, heart rate, breathing, and temperature in response to 'pleasurable' music versus ‘neutral' music. Using the PET technique utilized in the Vanderbilt University experiment, researchers noted the neurochemical evidence that suggests music acts as a stimulus for dopamine release affecting motivational and motor parts of the brain. When scientists block dopamine release, rewards such as food, sex, and cocaine stop reinforcing behavior. The bottom line is that we need adequate levels of dopamine to feel motivated, focused, enthusiastic, and energized.
POWER & ENERGY - Increasing lean mass and strength is accomplished through muscle training that consists of load, volume, angles, repetition, recovery, and consistency. Pump Igniter™ is designed to support lean mass and strength by affecting key physiological areas that influence energy, blood flow, oxygen, glycogen, lactic acid and free radicals.
- Hydrocarn - Beta-alanine is an amino acid that promotes more muscular energy. A study published in a 2010 issue of Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise concluded that supplementation with beta-alanine increases muscle’s carnosine content and, therefore, total muscle buffer capacity, with the potential to improve physical performance during high-intensity exercise and to delay the onset of neuromuscular fatigue. HydroCarn™ is derived from a beta-alanine base that is modified into beta-alanine HCL. HydroCarn™ is highly soluble so beta alanine is rapidly absorbed into the muscles to boost physical performance.
- L-Citrulline The amino acid L-citrulline is a pre-cursor to L-arginine. It is also a byproduct of endothelial nitric oxide production. During the ENOS cycle, L-citrulline is converted into L-arginine, creating more blood level L-arginine to be used to create nitric oxide. Research suggests that oral supplementation of L-citrulline is not metabolized in the intestine or liver and is thus a good supplement to support increased nitric oxide levels.
- Red Beet Juice - Red beet root is naturally high in nitrates (NO3) which are believed to improve athletic performance. A study led by the University of Exeter, published in 2009 in the Journal of Applied Physiology, pointed to the benefits of NO3, suggesting that they boost a cyclist's endurance.* Nitrates are helpful to athletes because they quickly bring oxygen to muscles, essentially making the more difficult efforts easier. Additionally, Bailey et al. (2009) suggest that beet root supplementation can reduce the O2 cost of exercise, suggesting that beet root supplementation allows for high-intensity exercise to be tolerated for an extended period of time.* In a later study, Bailey et al. (2011) suggests that acute dietary nitrate supplementation with beet root improves cycling economy, as demonstrated by a higher power output (PO) for the same rate of oxygen consumption (VO2), and enhances both 4- and 16.1-km cycling time trial performance.*
Researchers theorize that the reason for improved athletic performance is due to an increase in nitric oxide production via a different pathway than the traditional l-arginine nitric oxide pathway. This is called the nitrate nitrite nitric oxide pathway, and it kicks in when oxygen levels are low, like when we are exercising. Red beet nitrates (NO3) are converted to nitrates (NO2) and the nitrates (NO2) are converted to nitric oxide (NO).*
Higenamine - This ingredient is found in a variety of plants such as Nelumbo Nucifera. In animal models, it has been suggested to be a potent beta-2-adrenergic receptor agonist. Beta-2 agonists help stimulate fat cells to release fat as fatty acids. Higenamine exerts its lipolytic, thermogenic, and anabolic effects via adrenergic signaling and cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) activation. Higenamine has been suggested to stimulate acetylcholine release in animal models, suggesting that it may induce improved muscle contraction on human subjects.
RC-NOS™, also known as Rutaecarpine, is a quinazolinocarboline alkaloid naturally found in the long used Chinese herb, Wu-Chu-Yu. Rutaecarpine has traditionally been used to support vasodilation as well as cognitive effects. A recent study (Sheu et al, 1999) reports that Rutaecarpine may support the output of nitric oxide (NO), particularly from endothelial cells. RC-NO appears to cause an influx of intracellular calcium ions resulting in the activation of endothelial NO synthesis, causing smooth muscles to relax. This relaxation in the smooth muscle cells surrounding arteries and veins may help effectively reduce muscle fatigue by increasing the removal of waste products like carbon dioxide and lactic acid. It has also been found that the increase calcium ions and cGMP caused by NO release can enhance shortening velocity of contraction, maximal mechanical power, and overall strength.
BioPerine - Bioperine® is a standardized extract from the fruit of Piper nigrum L (black pepper) or Piper longum L (long pepper). Bioperine® is used to help other nutrients become better absorbed into the blood stream. It works by inhibiting glucuronidation, which is a process that the body uses to make substances more water-soluble. More water-soluble substances are more easily eliminated from the body through urination. When this process is inhibited, the bioavailability of some substances is increased. BioPerine is the only product sourced out of piperine to obtain a patented status for its ability to increase the bioavailability of nutritional compounds. It is also the only source from piperine to have undergone clinical studies in the U.S. to substantiate its safety and efficacy for nutritional use
Astravar - Astravar™ is an all-natural plant-derived compound that is extracted from highly fractionated Panax notoginseng and Astragalus membranaceus. Research suggests that Astravar may improve the absorption of various nutrients at the cellular level. When a greater amount of these nutrients are transported from the blood stream into cells, rather than just floating in the blood stream, you have truly improved bioavailability. Astravar also contains several ginsenosides. Ginsenosides belong to a group of compounds known as steroidal saponins, which are steroid molecules with attached sugar residues. In an animal study one of these ginsenosides known as rb1 was suggested to increase testosterone production indirectly through the stimulation of the luteinizing hormone. Further research also suggests that the ingredients in Astravar can increase eNOS (endothelial nitric oxide synthase), the enzyme that prompts nitric oxide production in endothelial cells.
Electrolytes are needed to maintain proper fluid balance and to optimize your energy levels so you can function at your best. Electrolytes are important because they are what your cells (especially nerve, heart, and muscle) use to maintain voltages across their cell membranes and to carry electrical impulses (nerve impulses, muscle contractions) across themselves and to other cells. Your kidneys work to keep the electrolyte concentrations in your blood constant despite changes in your body. For example, when you exercise heavily, you lose electrolytes in your sweat, particularly sodium and potassium. These electrolytes must be replaced to keep the electrolyte concentrations of your body fluids constant. We have added a unique electrolyte matrix of dipotassium phosphate, disodium phosphate, and magnesium glycerophosphate to Pump Igniter™ to help maintain a desirable electrolyte balance.
Agmatine - Agmatine is a polyamine that is produced via decarboxylation of l-arginine by the enzyme arginine decarboxylase. It binds to various receptors and has been accepted as a novel neurotransmitter in brain. In the correct dosage, studies suggest that agmatine can increase endothelial nitric oxide synthase, or in other words, increase nitric oxide*. However, in our opinion, the best reason to include agmatine is for its positive effects on the brain, which include mood and sensory management. Because agamtine is biphasic, too much of it can have negative effects on both those areas, so the correct dosage is key
Picamilon - This dietary supplement is formed by combining niacin with GABA. Picamilon is able to cross the blood–brain barrier, where it is then is hydrolyzed into GABA and niacin. The second released component, niacin, acts as a strong vasodilator. Scientists at the Department of Biochemistry, Odessa University, found that picamilon passes quickly through the blood-brain barrier, faster than GABA itself. The combination of niacin and GABA increases the effectiveness of both ingredients. Because GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter, it is involved in processes in which neural activity is reduced, such as reducing nervousness, supporting calming, and releasing tension. In studies with animals, picamilon has been suggested to have positive action on the cerebral circulation, and also exhibits the properties of a unique calming but stimulating component.
Safed Musli - This herb is from the tropical wet forests in peninsular India. Studies suggest that supplementing with Safed Musli had a anabolic effect in animals as evidenced by weight gains in the body and reproductive organs.* Additional animal studies suggested that Safed Musli enhances sexual health and vigor.* In the Ayurvedic literature, Safed Musli is a chief ingredient in the preparation of over a hundred therapeutic formulations. Safed Musli is used to revitalize, energize, support sexual health, and promote an overall feeling of well-being
