The True All-In-One Solution to Optimizing your Performance in the Gym
THE ALL NEW MIND MATRIX
Tunnel Vision Redefined- The Five-Headed Beast
Katana doesn’t hit you with a high dose of caffeine like most other pre-workouts seem to do these days. Instead, it relies on non-stimulant “intensifiers” and “nootropics” that deliver tunnel vision focus and energy with minimal overstimulation, jitters, anxiety, and the other nasty side effects associated with these high-stimulant pre-workouts that are becoming commonplace in the industry.
Cognizin (CDP-Choline) heads off the three-headed beast by providing a full dose of highest quality choline source currently available on the market. No other source of choline boasts the human studies, dual effect on uridine/phospholipid synthesis, and blood-brain barrier permeability that Cognizin affords. By delivering choline in such an effective manner, synthesis of the neurotransmitter “Acetylcholine” (ACh) is increased. ACh is the very same neurotransmitter that your nerve cells fire when you decide to contract your muscles. By elevating ACh, you stand not only to enhance the mind-muscle connection and improve muscle contraction, but you also get the energy effects: improved alertness and central energy.
It’s important to note that Cognizin acts via the parasympathetic nervous system (PNS). In order to balance this effect, we added L-Tyrosine, a neurotransmitter precursor that acts via the sympathetic nervous system (SNS). This creates a balanced energy and focus, or a “clean” feel, rather than the distracting, mind-altering effects that you may get with other products. As a precursor to dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine, L-Tyrosine promotes increased focus, improved mood, and an enhanced ability to deal with stressors (including exercise). Like Cognizin, L-Tyrosine is used at a full dose.
The third head of the beast is ALCAR
ALCAR is often used as a cognitive booster, due to its ability to increase alertness and mitochondrial capacity while providing support for the neurons.
ALCAR has been shown to be very effective at alleviating the side effects of aging, like neurological decline and chronic fatigue. ALCAR supplementation is also a very safe method of improving insulin sensitivity and blood vessel health, particularly for people with delicate or weakened cardiac health. ALCAR can also protect neurons and repair certain damage, such as that caused by diabetes and diabetic neuropathy. ALCAR works well with Choline as it increases carnitine deposition in muscles. ALCAR also works well with caffeine as it increases acylcarnitine production
With caffeine acting as the only true stimulant in the formula, you don’t have to worry about tolerance. In fact, continuous supplementation with these three energy/focus compounds will actually improve their effects with time. You will never need another pre-workout.
But You Said Katana was about Enhancing Performance?
That I did. And here’s why. It doesn’t matter if you’re weightlifting, do cardio, or performing some athletic activity of choice, Katana has you covered on all bases.
Increased Strength from Every Achievable Angle
You probably know by now that caffeine is a well-known performance enhancer. It binds to a specific site in the muscle cell and increases calcium release from what is known as the “sarcoplasmic reticulum.” Increased calcium levels in the muscle cell results in increased force of muscle contraction. This isn’t new stuff.
Next we have L-Citrulline, which has been shown to increase anaerobic work capacity. You will find yourself working out longer in the gym, but unlike the usual “drop off” in performance that occurs as you progress through your workout, you’ll notice that L-Citrulline keeps your reps on par with the very first few sets. Impressive data, to say the least.
Endurance Redefined – High Rep Sets and Cardio will never be the same
Katana boasts three ingredients with human data showing improved endurance performance: you will work out longer (increased time to exhaustion), harder, and smarter.
Agmatine Sulfate is thought to improve nutrient partitioning thus leading to more glycogen storage and increased water retention within the muscle. It also increases the level of nitric oxide (NO), which can increase the "PUMP" that athletes look for when weight training.
Next, we have L-Citrulline, which as we mentioned above, enhances strength. But not only that: it has been shown in humans to enhance aerobic (endurance) work as well, and even more, it greatly reduces soreness in individuals engaging in weightlifting. Strength, endurance, and recovery in one ingredient? Yes please.
Lastly, we high yield glycerol. HydroMax™ is the industry’s first stable, highly concentrated form of powdered glycerol (65%) that offers a unique combination of greater potency and function, offering exceptional hydration in a uniquely optimized proprietary blend of glycerol and silica. The ability of HydroMax™ to increase the concentration of fluid in the blood and tissue within the body1 (hyperhydration) lends itself to potential enhancements in the benefits of multiple athletic and fitness applications. Powdered forms of glycerol typically utilized in sports nutrition are in the form of glycerol monostearate (GMS) at a potency of 5-12%. HydroMax™ is made for easy inclusion in ready-to-mix and capsule applications that are essential in the sports nutrition market.
This is true performance enhancement.
Forever Chasing the Pump? No Longer
Perhaps the most impressive aspect of Katana, aside from its truly unique ability to enhance exercise performance, is its ability to enhance pumps. Four ingredients, some of which we’ve touched on already, contribute to this effect.
The strongest of all perhaps is Agmatine Sulfate. Agmatine is a very well-studied vasodilator, and it will unquestionably provide the muscle fullness and roadmap veins that you seek.
L-Citrulline, as a precursor to L-arginine, has been shown to effectively vasodilate the vasculature in human subjects, further enhancing the effects of nitrates on vasodilation, nutrient/oxygen delivery, and more.
The final phase of the new Katana is Hydration! With the all new Hydration Blend you have all aspect of your workout covered. Energy, Endurance, Blood flow, focus and last but not least proper Hydrations.
Taurine has been shown to have great anti oxident effects on the human body, Taurine has also shown many benefits in brain function and cardio vascular health.
Sustamine is an ingredient that works on multiple levels to help rehydrate the body and sustain energy levels during exertion.* Ultra-pure, clinically tested, Sustamine® is produced through a patented fermentation method to create a unique dipeptide that is more easily absorbed by the body than complex protein molecules.* This makes Sustamine a highly effective ingredient for hydration, endurance and recovery.*
The result of a novel enzymatic process that bonds two amino acids together naturally, this true dipeptide is much smaller than a complete protein and can be absorbed quickly to aid recovery. Clinically tested Sustamine L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine is a breakthrough ingredient designed to help athletes go the distance by supporting the body's ability to rehydrate, replenish and recover.*
Sustamine has been shown to:
Enhance electrolyte and water absorption in the intestines*
Stimulate glycogen synthesis*
Inhibit muscle protein breakdown*
Promote the synthesis of muscle protein*
Protect the integrity of the gastrointestinal tract, contributing to better nutrient absorption*
Stimulate the immune system*
Putting It All Together – The Pre-Workout Category Has Met Its Maker
Gone are the days of stacking products, cycling through different pre-workouts, and needing to “take a break” because you can’t feel your product working any more. Katana is the only pre-workout you need for any and all purposes: performance, pumps, energy, focus, and endurance. Further, the effects get better with time, not the opposite. We’re talking about the end of your pre-workout search, and it couldn’t end in stronger fashion. This is the first pre-workout you will truly fall in love with and the last pre-workout you will ever need.
There’s been a large-scale “pre-workout problem,” and Katana is the answer.
