War Machine War Machine

Scitec War Machine is an advanced pre-workout supplement containing 13 active ingredients that increase the exercise capacity of the body. The product, among others, improves energy production and blood flow in the body, delays the appearance of physical and mental fatigue and regulates the pH level in the cells. It contains caffeine and three highly absorbable forms of creatine, as well as ingredients contributing to the intensification of fatty acid oxidation.

The product consists of:
Caffeine - purine alkaloid with strong erogenous and stimulating properties, increases the level of catecholamines, such as dopamine, adrenaline and norepinephrine, and prolongs their duration of action. Thanks to this, it effectively increases the ability to maintain focus and motivation, increases the muscle strength and endurance as well as enhances the oxidation of fatty acids.

By attaching to adenosine receptors, caffeine blocks the activity of an inhibitory neurotransmiter - adenosine in the central nervous system (CNS). As a result, it reduces the perceived level of fatigue and allows you to maintain wakefulness.

Creatine, when converted in the body into phosphocreatine, provides the phosphate group in the adenosine triphosphate (ATP) reconstitution from adenosine diphosphate (ADP). ATP as a basic energy carrier, participates in many reactions in the body (including the contractility of muscle fibers). It supports the maintenance of high energy levels and the ability to generate the muscle strength, as well as increases the muscle endurance and aerobic capacity. Creatine supplementation effectively reduces tiredness and muscle soreness caused by training and promotes resynthesis of muscle glycogen and building muscle mass.

The preparation contains the Multi-Creatine formula which contains three highly absorbable forms of creatine: MikronTec (micronized creatine monohydrate), creatine citrate and Kre-Alkalyn® (buffered creatine monohydrate).

L-arginine hydrochloride - an amino acid strongly stimulating the release of nitric oxide (NO), which increases the lumen of blood vessels and improves the blood flow in the body. The efficient flow of blood also ensures the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the muscles, both during and after the workout. It helps to increase the capacity and strength of the body, accelerate the post-workout regeneration and building the muscle mass. Arginine also helps to increase the so-called muscle ‘pump’ by enabling an adequate blood supply to the muscles, as well as providing the vascularisation effect.

Beta-Alanine - a dipeptide that effectively raises the level of carnosine in the body system, where it acts as the acceptor of hydrogen ions. During the work of muscle, in the case of low oxygen availability or high intensity, hydrogen ions accumulate. That situation intensifies the sensation of the muscle fatigue. Carnosine helps regulate the cellular pH level, preventing the formation of lactic acid, thereby reducing the fatigue and increasing the skeletal muscle endurance.

Acetyl-L-Carnitine hydrochloride - acetylated form of L-Carnitine, which allows the substance to pass through the blood-brain barrier and activity in the CNS. It increases the availability of the acetyl group and enables the efficient production of acetylcholine - a neurotransmitter responsible for the functioning of memory, signal transmission in the body and muscle contraction. L-Carnitine supports the passage of fatty acids through the mitochondrial membrane, thus increasing the possibility of using them as a source of the energy for burning the fat tissue. In addition, it reduces muscle damage and the production of lactic acid, while increasing the aerobic capacity of the body, insulin sensitivity and the ability to build qualitative muscle mass.

Calcium alpha-Ketoglutarate - is involved in the metabolism of amino acids, nitrogen transport and an energy production during the course of the Krebs cycle. It also increases the availability of L-arginine and promotes the production of the growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor, which have strong anabolic properties. Thanks to this, it increases the rate of muscle protein synthesis. The addition of calcium supports the functioning of the nervous system and ensures the proper contractility of skeletal muscles.

L-malic acid - acts synergistically with creatine and alpha-ketoglutarate, because they participate in the Krebs cycle and take part in the energy production. The acid effectively raises the ability to generate the strength and muscle power, and extends the time of effort till the exhaustion. It increases the perceived energy level, supports the functioning of the kidneys and increases the production of collagen.

Bitter orange extract (Citrus Aurantium) - is a source of natural chemical compounds, such as synephrine or octopamine, which have strong lipolytic properties. They stimulate the α-1 and α-2 adrenergic receptors, contributing to the increase of norepinephrine release and the intensity of thermogenesis. Thanks to this, the extract from this plant promotes the reduction of body fat and creating a caloric deficit, because it also reduces the appetite. Extract from bitter orange also intensifies the uptake of glucose by skeletal muscle and helps maintain arousal and maintain psychophysical fitness.

BioPerine® - a patented formula of piperine, an alkaloid found in black pepper. It enhances the production of gastric acid and the activity of proteolytic enzymes, and improves the absorption of nutrients. It helps to get rid of the excess oxygen free radicals, enhances thermogenesis and nitric oxide production and improves an insulin sensitivity of tissues.

Vitamin C - as a strong antioxidant in the water environment, it neutralizes free oxygen radicals resulting from an intense exercise. It reduces the muscle damage and participates in the synthesis of collagen and elastin, which help maintain the proper structure and elasticity of blood vessels. In addition, it reduces the perceived level of fatigue during physical activity and contributes to the reduction of muscle pain after the training. It can also reduce the risk of weakening the immune system during the intense exercise.

Vitamin B9 (folic acid) - is involved in the synthesis of DNA and hematopoiesis processes. It is necessary for the production of S-adenosylmethionine (SAM-e) and participates in the methylation process, which determines the correct course of many processes in the body. Folic acid can have an impact on reducing homocysteine levels, preventing the development of cardiovascular disease. In addition, it promotes the synthesis of neurotransmitters responsible for a good mood and well-being, and strengthens the immune system.

In summary, Scitec War Machine is a multi-component pre-workout preparation with ergogenic properties. The supplement reduces the perceived level of fatigue, promotes energy production and has lipolytic properties. It intensifies the production of nitric oxide, making it possible to obtain the muscle ‘pump’ effect and promotes the post-workout regeneration. It contains three highly absorbable creatine sources that contribute to the efficient production of ATP and improve the sports performance.

Vitamin C

Information


Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) it is a vitamin soluble in body fluids, can be taken from foods (fruits and vegetables), or as drug derived synthetically. The largest of its resources can be found in broccoli, Brussels sprout, kale, black currant fruit and hawthorn, citrus fruits, tomatoes, Savoy cabbage, potatoes. In fact, intake of vitamin C of the food products does not limit the absorbed quantity. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a potent antioxidant, it is an antitoxic, increasing the immune system due to the elimination of risk of bacterial contamination. Vitamin C prevents rupture of blood vessels, affects the blood cholesterol level. It substantially increases the absorption of iron. Inhibits the growth of cancer cells. Lowers stress levels.
Vitamin C deficiency causes abnormal development of connective tissue, cracking capillaries, abnormal calcification of bone tissue, impaired
absorption of iron, scorbutus. With the lack of vitamin C, all kinds of injuries do not heal up properly. Vitamin C deficiency can be caused by smoking; each cigarette is destroying up to 100 mg of vitamin C.
Dosage: The demand is 60-80 mg daily. It does not limit the ability to consume higher doses. Some side effects may occur only with longer
taking of synthetic vitamin C.

Ascorbic acid

Information

Ascorbic acid – vitamin C. Its biologically active form is the L-isomer, which negatively rotates the polarised light, so that it is a dextroisomer (laevorotatory vitamin C does not exist). It is a strong antioxidant; it reduces the amounts of free radicals, which reduces oxidative stress, a factor leading to cell apoptosis, which is why it is indicated to be a cause for premature ageing.

It supports the immune system functions and increases body system immunity. It is an essential element of the collagen synthesis path, which is why it positively affects the condition of connective tissue. Hence, it promotes also wound healing and increases the durability of capillary vessel. It is involved in transformations of tyrosine and carnitine as well as of some nutrients, so that it affects metabolism. It can also have an impact on the nervous system functions, as it reduces mental fatigue.

Higher supply of vitamin C is especially recommended in the periods of more intensive body system burden, after infections and in order to accelerate regeneration. The indications for increased supply of the vitamin are also hard physical work or intensive trainings.

Vitamin B9 (Folic acid)

Information

Vitamin B9 (folic acid, folacin, vitamin M) is part of a complex of B vitamins soluble in water. It takes part in the production of red blood cells, in cooperation with vitamin B12, preventing anaemia progression, its molecules are involved in catalysis of hematopoietic processes. Together with vitamins B6 and B12 it helps in the treatment of hyperhomocysteinemia. It eliminates disturbances in the gastrointestinal tract. It affects the proper functioning of the immune system. Necessary during pregnancy, because its deficiency causes neural tube defects in the fetus. The natural ingredient of yeast, eggs, liver, green vegetables and it is synthesized in the gastrointestinal tract by intestinal bacteria.
Dosage: The daily requirement is 0.1-0.2 mg.

Caffeine

Information

Caffeine (1,3,7-trimethylxanthine, 1-methylotheobromine) is a purine alkaloid occurring in the natural state in plants (Coffea arabica, Camelia sinensis, Paulinia cupana, Ilex paraguariensis), which acts as a natural pesticide, acting toxic to insects. Peculiar smell and taste also deters herbivores. Caffeine in the body inhibits the adenosine receptors in the brain, fighting fatigue and allowing for action activation. It has a beneficial effect on the metabolism of oxygen, which increases the exercise capacity (strength and endurance) and rapid post-workout recovery. In the sports supplementation, caffeine is used as a stimulant nervous system. It has the thermogenic potential and in combination with other substances (e.g. Polyphenols, both occurring in coffee beans, such as cocoa beans, tea leaves and mate) can effectively participate in the reduction of body fat. It is included in many dietary stimulants (creatine stacks, no-boosters, beverages). It is a component of fat burners. It is also in the form of mono-preparation supplements.
Dosage: 100-600 mg per day. Due to the long release of activity should not be used in the evening, before
sleep.


 

Creatine

Information

Creatine (β-methylguanidoacetic acid) is an endogenous substance, synthesized from the acids present in liver and kidney (L-arginine, L-glycine and L-methionine) and consumption of meat. Its action ensures an adenosine triphosphate (ATP) level, which is an energy carrier, increases the hydration of cells and muscle glycogen stores. In the sports supplementation creatine is stored in the muscles, which improves energy management, exercise capacity and quick recovery and muscle growth. It has the ergogenic, anabolic and anti-catabolic potential.
Creatine is one of the high-performance
substances used in competitive sports, with a reputation confirmed by scientific research. In the form of mono-preparation supplements such as creatine ester, creatine malate, creatine monohydrate, and the multi-component supplements (both various forms of creatine, as well as other substances, precursors of nitric oxide, the BCAA type amino acids). Supplements containing creatine available for purchase at www.muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: depending on the form of preparation, the type of exercise and weight, normally one of the following models
of creatine dosage is used:
- cyclic
supplementation: 5 - 10g per day in 1 - 3 portions a day, 2 - 5 g per dose. Cycle time approx. 4 - 12 weeks
- cyclic
supplementation with saturated phase: first 5 - 7 days 20 - 30g per day on Day 4 - 6 doses 4 - 6g per serving, then the maintenance phase 2 - 10g per day in divided doses. Cycle time approx. 4 - 8 weeks
- constant
supplementation: 0.03 - 0.05 g per kg body weight for an extended period of time.


 

Creatine monohydrate

Information

Creatine monohydrate is a popular and cheapest form of creatine used in sports supplementation in Poland. This is a molecule, in which are bound: creatine molecule with a molecule of water. It has a high bioavailability and tissue velocity saturation. Supports the exercise capacity (strength and endurance), accelerates muscle growth and regeneration after training exercise. Transport of creatine into the muscle cells is supported by the insulin hormone. For better effect of saturation of the tissues, a diet increasing the content of insulin in the body is indicated (carbohydrate and high protein diet) and supporting nutrients and supplements (Dietary carbohydrate and carbohydrate-protein, insulin ALA, d-pinitol or taurine). Creatine monohydrate is present in the form of mono-preparation supplements (capsules, powders, tablets) and multicomponent supplements (i.e. as a component of creatine stacks).
Dosage: depending on the form of supplement, the type of exercise and weight, normally are used one of the following models of creatine supplementation:
- cyclic supplementation : 5-10g per day in 1-3 portions during the day, 3-5g per dose. The length of the cycle for 4-8 weeks.
- cyclic supplementation with saturated phase: the first 5-7 days after 20-30g daily in 4-6 doses of 4-6g per serving, then the maintenance phase 2-10g per day in divided doses. The length of the cycle 4-8 weeks
- constant supplementation: 0,03-0,05g per kg of body weight for an extended period of time.


 

Creatine citrate

Information

Creatine citrate is formed from the combination of creatine molecules and three molecules of citric acid in one molecule. It is a substance soluble in body fluids, more soluble than creatine monohydrate. Ionized citric acid (citrate) is involved in energy conversion, by acting in conjunction with creatine, increases this potential and gives the compound an additional properties. Creatine citrate, when used systematically, effects the energy storage, supporting the exercise capacity (strength and endurance) and increase of muscle mass. It has a regenerative ability through a pH, return to ATP balance in combination with anabolic activity of kinases activated by creatine. Due to the responsibility of the hormone insulin for the transport of creatine into the muscle cells, it is desirable to use creatine during meals or by the use of supplements (carbohydrate, carbohydrate-protein, insulin-like) and citrate creatine mono-preparation and multi-compaund supplements and as supplement to creatine stacks.
Dosage: Depending on the form of supplement, the type of exercise and weight, usually used one of the following creatine supplementation models:
1) supplementation cycle: 5-10g per day in 1-3 portions during the day, 2-5g per dose. Cycle length of about 4-12 weeks
2) constant supplementation: 0,03-0,05g per kg body weight for an extended period of time.


 

Buffered creatine monohydrate

Information

Buffered creatine monohydrate is a special formula combines creatine monohydrate with the so-called "Buffer", which is a chemical compound that allows to obtain the proper pH of the solution, the aim of its development was to eliminate the conversion of creatine to form creatinine. The formula is modelled on the patented Kre-ALKALYN formula. Buffered creatine monohydrate improves the exercise capacity (strength and endurance), accelerates the growth of lean body mass, and provides extensive wellness after exercise. It is available as both a mono-preparation supplement in a form of capsules (rarely as powder), as a basis or supplementation of creatine stacks.
Dosage: in professional sport recommended 2.5-7.5 grams per day, depending on the intensity of the workout.


 

Kre-Alkalyn

Information

Kre-Alkalyn (buffered creatine monohydrate) is a patented formula of creatine, operating with better effect in smaller doses than other forms of creatine (creatine monohydrate). Use of kre-alkyn does not store water in the intercellular spaces, and muscle cells, its use provides full transportation (without support) into muscle cells. With its application, there are no digestive disorders.
Kre-alkalyn regularly used enhances the exercise capacity (strength and endurance) and accelerates the growth of lean body mass. Used after exercise affects the rapid renewal of cells and reduces the feeling of fatigue. It is often used by athletes, despite the higher price then other complexes of creatine. It is available as mono-preparation supplements (capsules, and powders) as well as the complementing of creatine stacks.
Dosage: as recommended by the manufacturer 2.5 - 5g / 24h.

Arginine

Information


Arginine is an exogenous amino acid, it is a component of dietary proteins, not always synthesized in the human body in necessary quantity, so it is necessary to deliver it in the form of synthetics. It takes part in the biosynthesis agmatine, creatine and nitrogen oxides. The use of supplements containing arginine before workout increases the exercise capacity (strength, endurance). Used after considerable effort intensifies the transfer of energy and building compounds and intensifies the process of recovery. Used at bedtime in combination with lysine and ornithine enhances the synthesis of growth hormone. takes part in the intrasystemic synthesis of creatine. Arginine (as a precursor of ornithine) is involved in the urea cycle, increases the flow of blood in the circulatory system, increases sexual potency (in a short time after application). It affects the body's immunity preventing infections, and lowers blood pressure. In supplements – usually as alpha-ketoglutarate.

 

Beta-alanine

Information

 

Beta-alanine (β-alanine) is a β-amino acid (the same group to which the I-alanine belongs, but with different chemistries). In combination with histidine, it forms β-alanyl-L-histidine (carnosine) - a antioxidant, chelating and buffering compound. Carnosine reduces the level of hydrogen ions in the cell and allows to extend the physical performance and endurance, it affects biological recovery after exercise. Beta-alanine is available in the form of single component and advanced amino-acid supplements, creatine stacks and nitrogen boosters.


 

L-Carnitine

Information

L-carnitine is a vitamin-like substance, synthesized in the body from amino acids (lysine and methionine) and available in foods of animal origin. It is a component of muscle (including cardiac muscle) and nerve tissue. Involved in the metabolism of fats affecting the transport of long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria of the cell, facilitating their burning and energy production. It is a potent antioxidant, contributing to the improvement of the aerobic condition and accelerating the recovery after intense exercise. Recommended for use for representatives of endurance sports. In the sports supplementation there are available mono-preparation of carnitine (in liquid form, acetylated [ALC], esterified [see. Propionyl-L-carnitine]) and multicomponent (e.g. in a complex with organic acids - see. L-carnitine tartrate) energetic, weight loss and improving the exercise capacity supplements, to be purchased at www.muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: 1 - 3 g per day in 1 - 3 doses, preferably about 45 - 60 minutes prior to exercise.

Alpha-ketoglutarate

Information

Alpha-ketoglutarate (ionized Alpha-ketoglutarate acid, ketone derivative of glutaric acid). Involved in the metabolism of amino acids, oxidation, and transport of the nitrogen in the body. It accelerates the synthesis of components of food (anti-catabolism). In sports supplementation it is used in combination with arginine, glutamine and BCAA. As it is of excreting a toxic ammonia from the body - it is antitoxin. It is a part of sports pre- and post-training supplements, and anti-catabolic supplements and amino acid complexes.


 

Calcium

Information

Calcium (element chem. symbol Ca, atomic no. 20, the group of alkaline earth metals) is the basic building substance of bones and teeth, in which stored is 99% of the element, in the form of hydroxylapatite. When building bones and teeth, phosphorus is very important in the right proportion. It is a base-forming element and activator of many enzymes (ATPase) necessary to release the energy of ATP.
