HYDROMAX™ GLYCEROL SILICATE:
Hydromax™ is a proprietary blend of glycerol and silica allowing for a high amount of glycerol (65%) to be delivered as a free flowing and soluble powder. This is about 10x the concentration of glycerol available in standard glycerol monostearate (GMS). Glycerol can increase intracellular volume and lead to an incredible pump, but also extend endurance by augmenting cellular hydration and promoting thermal regulation.
The 'pump' amino acid, L-Citrulline has been clinically researched to enhance nitric oxide levels better than arginine. Studies suggest that citrulline increases the rate of ATP synthesis during exercise and greater phosphocreatine recovery after exercise. Citrulline also reduces lactic acid and ammonia levels, which leads to better muscle performance and increased endurance.
AGMAPURE® AGMATINE SULFATE:
Agmatine has become the wonder compound that’s a necessity in every athlete’s arsenal. Agmatine modulates NOS (nitric oxide synthase, specifically iNOS and nNOS), leading to incredible muscle pumps. It also promotes better workout recovery, a healthy hormone balance and supports a healthy stress response.
You may not have heard of Amentoflavone, but you will soon! This is another incredibly potent and multifunctional ingredient. Amentoflavone is a known PDE inhibitor, making it a potent vaso-dilator. It also supports enhanced muscle contractions, by increasing calcium release within the muscle cell. Last but not least, amentoflavone enhances mood, improving alertness and wakefulness by modulating GABA receptor activity. You will feel stronger and incredibly focused with AMENTOPUMP™.
Bioflavonoids like those found in Citrus sinensis (including hesperidin, quercetin, naringin, rutin) can increase the strength of the capillaries (blood vessels) and regulate their permeability. They are also essential to the proper absorption of Vitamin C (also found in DILATE) as well as improving the bioavailability of other notoriously difficult to absorb compounds like Amentoflavone and even enhancing the impact of products DILATE may be stacked with.
Pomegranates are a great source of polyphenols like ellagic acid. Recent studies demonstrate that taking pomegranate extract prior to exercise can increase vasodilation, blood flow, and delay fatigue. These effects are likely attributed to high polyphenol content, which have been shown to increase nitric oxide production and enhance exercise efficiency.
Vitamin C acts as a potent radical scavenging antioxidant, preventing nitrate tolerance. It also greatly enhances NOS activity, therefore increasing the rate of nitric oxide production. Not only does it promote nitric oxide production, but it can also reverse nitric oxide tolerance – allowing you to feel the effects of DILATE at every workout, time and time again.
Mix 1 scoop of DILATE with 10-12 oz of cold water and consume 15-30 minutes before training. Dose may be increased up to a maximum of 2 scoops for maximum effect (mixed in 20-24 oz of water). For enhanced endurance, DILATE can also be taken during training or combined with your favorite intra-workout beverage.
I started off on a 5 serve tub. Stacked it with Defcon1 and the pumps were amazing! It tastes alright but it's not unpleasant. I have since bought another 5 serve tub because I don't need it for my everyday workouts. It's good for days you're going to be working out heavy and especially while working out arms and chest. I usually walk to gym and my lower half is much more developed, so, the pump came on half way there and it was so huge that it sort of hurt while walking. Definitely worth a try for pump junkies!
Found this to be useful when I was limiting caffeine as it gives a great pump so can be used as a pre-workout. Only issue with it was that it tends to clump. I used the Grape flavour which was pleasant. One great thing i have noticed with ANS products is that they taste a lot more natural than some brands which makes them easy to drink.
Noticed a little bit of an extra pump first time I used this. Which you should as contains Agmatine.
But noticed no enhanced stim, or any major pump after first use. Disappointing.
If you were to run this regularly with caffeine based pre workout it would get expensive.
Got a sample of this in my recent order from xplossive supplements and used it this morning by stacking it with assult. The stim was so epic and amazing. Was off to the gym like a rocket. Was very impressed with the taste and the smell. Thought it give me a good buzz by stacking it with assult. Overall would give the dilate a sold ten out of ten
holy shit... The best pump product I have used so far!!!! grape flavour is yummy,juicy just like a real purple grape fresh from the vine, this also stacks well with most pre workouts and enhances the stimulant feel whilst giving a nice solid pump. at 2 scoops the pump can be a bit too much especially if stacked with a pre containing agmatine sulphate. ANS dilate makes me feel all veiny and swole like a walking morning wood, and since dilate dosent contain any caffiene its also great before bedtime hijinks, wink wink ; )
I was lucky enough to get a sample of this to try and wow. I stacked this with it's sister product Ritual and I got knocked for 6! But I felt amazing. I set 2 PR's in one session on this. I have never noticed pump effects like it, I felt like the Hulk.
Another benefit of this was the taste, it was amazing and when mixed with Ritual the not so nice taste of that was smoothed over by Dilate. You should all buy this and Ritual.
My recommendation for use of ANS Dilate.
I really rate this product!
1 - Chest. The pump is mutant. You feel like you can't completely contract your pecs due to the pump. But you can. It's just your pecs are so pumped there is real fear you might burst. Insert pricking your chest with a pin jokes here.
2 - Arms. Don't even think of contracting to the top of a biceps curl. It won't happen. This is where the "Skin tearing muscle pumps" are made. The pump is unreal. As for triceps, be prepared to crack the "got any horse shoes" jokes and proceed to cranking out a triceps pose. Just not for too long. Why!? See "Skin tearing muscle pumps"
3 - Back. Want a couple of rump steaks attached to your lower back and lats? Go for it. And hyper extensions feel like your back is about to leap out and rip your jugular out. Or someone else's.
4 - Shoulders. Like. Boulders. Yes. Permanent burn / pump for the duration of the workout. We love this too. Thanks.
5 - Legs. No. Don't do it. Well..... at least once. Depending on how you train your legs will depend on how the blood likes to travel around. And it will. And you will feel it. Different "stages of pump" which makes you walk like you have certain disabilities and of course have a certain vegetable up your.... and people honestly think you are carrying an injury and ask if you are ok. You respond with "I'm fine thanks just training hard." Now you are hard. More hard than them and they wonder if they'll ever be as hard as you. Really though, you are ok but aren't at the same time. You know what's coming in the next 3 days of DOMS.
Have used one sample (in parallel with defcon1)
Didn't notice any extra stimulant effect (though it is for the most part a stim free product)
Shoulders felt great / unstopable on kettlebell shoulder press
Not much pump in tri's / bi's but forarms felt huge
I had a sterling workout, especially considering I was going low stim, it was my second workout of the day, and I was using my shoulders / arms that have recently given many aches and pains, with little trouble.
I really did dig the effect, I felt great, I had mad pump and felt like my strength went through the roof.
Great formula (amentoflavone shows real promise in studies on endurance, strength and even fat loss)
Bar none head to head the best PUMP formulation on the market. Ingredients, dosages and effects are spot on. Before even hitting the weights there is almost a 'cool' sensation that you can feel trickling through your veins as the glycerin begins to draw in the water and volumize the plasma.
Within your first exercise BOOM! The vascularity and pump set in as though you've just finished a pyramid set - and you stay swole!
I find that my endurance is increased, likely an effect of better hydration and nutrient/oxygen delivery to muscles. But DILATE also works incredibly well when stacked with other pre-workouts, the ingredient combination (despite being stim-free) somehow augments the stimulant sensation of other products. Likely a more rapid and complete delivery due to the nitric oxide and vasodilation effects.
Got the sneaky chance to beta test this in Auckland at a store opening before me and the boys went to hit chest and arms, it was EPIC seriously I am stim-jesus and this enhanced the feeling of my ANS Ritual and gave me an insane pump which was awesome because I'm not exactly lean so I don't normally notice too much vascularity! I can't wait for my 2 tubs to arrive on Monday!
Probably the best PUMP Product I have ever used, Not only does it give you an insane pump.. But any stimulant you have taken it actually assists in enhancing it.. For instance I had 1 scoop of ritual with dilate and it felt like two Ritual scoops, But cleaner so I reckon it's pretty faultless.
Haven't tried it on its own as a stimulant free pre-workout though.
