Universal Shock Therapy is a composition of active ingredients, which first and foremost allow for gentle stimulation and preparation of the body for exercise, additionally supporting anabolic processes and muscle cell regeneration. The manufacturer offers a supplement in the form of a water-soluble powder for those who like to prepare tasty training drinks,
Effective dose of metabolic energy
There is no doubt that many people have experienced the feeling of lack of strength and energy during their training session. The problem may lie in abnormal regeneration, and if this cause is excluded, you should take into consideration the lack of energy components for the muscles. In order to eliminate this limiting factor, which is so easy to counteract, the manufacturer decided to include a mixture of several active substances in the supplement.
Glucose polymers, glucose and trehalose belong to the group of carbohydrates, whose direct transformations within the cells enable to obtain energy in the form of a triphosphate compound, which is called ATP. Together with calcium ions, this molecule participates in the process of muscle contraction. It is also involved in the biosynthesis of new fibres. To be sure of its production, the preparation contains two forms of the best-assimilable phosphates, including potassium and sodium phosphate. Thanks to such protection, there is no risk of power shortage to perform demanding strength exercises.
Efficient generation of metabolic energy is also not possible without vitamins and minerals with a regulatory effect. These include niacin, which is a component of NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) and magnesium cations (in the form of magnesium oxide), whose insufficient amount impairs carbohydrate metabolism.
Today, many people complain about constant fatigue that results from chronic stress and poor regeneration. In the long run, this can lead to gradual neglect of non-work activities in the form of training and other demanding hobbies. Of course, nothing can replace proper rest, but in the short term it is worth to use substances with mild stimulating effect.
These include methylxanthines, among which we distinguish caffeine and other compounds contained in the leaf of Yerba Mate, Guarana seeds or extract from Kola Nut. Their mechanism of action is based on penetrating the blood-brain barrier and directly affecting nerve cells. They block the binding of adenosine produced by ATP transformations to their own specific receptors. This results in a reduced feeling of fatigue and enhances motivation to act. It can be said that these compounds literally and metaphorically prevent the loss of energy.
Enhanced blood flow to muscles
Intensive physical exercise causes an increased blood flow to the muscles. However, it does not always result in the feeling desired by many athletes, the so-called ‘muscle pump’. Its occurrence depends on proper hydration, consumption of sufficient amount of carbohydrates, or performance of a specific number of series and repetitions of a given exercise. The most important factor, however, is the availability of a molecule that has a relaxing effect, which is nitric oxide.
Endothelial cells synthesize it, for example, from arginine (present in three forms, hydrochloride, alpha-ketoglutarate and ArginoCarn® complex), which may be synthesized from citrulline metabolism (used in the form of malate).
Definitely better hydration of muscles and neutralization of the acidic pH of muscle cells, is possible thanks to sodium bicarbonate. Beta-alanine also indirectly participates in the buffering of lactic acid, which is formed in intensively working muscles. The use of so many forms of active ingredients contributes to a much better supply oxygen and nutrients to muscle cells, and also alleviates muscle soreness the day after a very intensive workout.
Excessive concentration of free radicals may also disturb the regeneration. They are formed during significantly intensified metabolic transformations, which often occur in the cells of intensively working muscles. Their damaging effect leads to the development of inflammation, making it difficult to renew new muscle fibres. The fight against them is possible thanks to a powerful complex of antioxidant compounds, which are polyphenols from Green Tea extract, flavonoids, proanticyanides from Grape Pests extract, pycnogenol from pine bark extract and alpha-liponic acid.
Protection against catabolism
Apart from a proper stimulus in the form of hard training, taking care of a proper diet is an important element in the fight for your dream figure. It includes not only caloric surplus or deficit (which depends on the goal), but also the content of certain regulatory substances.
The most important process in muscles is the already mentioned protein biosynthesis. It depends on its effectiveness, it depends on the rate of cell volume growth. One of the factors limiting its development is the availability of exogenous amino acids. To solve this problem, the preparation contains three anti-catabolic amino acids from the BCAA group, L-Valine, L-leucine and L-isoleucine, supported by L-alanylo-L-glutamine - a dipeptide significantly improving the nitrogen balance of the system.
Apart from obvious participation in protein synthesis, L-leucineinitiates and intensifies this process. Synergism of its action is supported by creatine (in the form of a monohydrate and magnesium chelate MagnaPower®), transported to muscle cells together with L-taurine. The last substance is the so-called non-protein amino acid, which, together with glucuronolactone and L-cysteine (hydrochloride), plays a detoxifying role, purifying the body of harmful compounds. In turn, vitamin B6, as a component of enzymes involved in the metabolism of amino acids, facilitates the availability of desired ‘bricks’.
Choline present in the preparation (in the form of dihydrate) participates in direct biosynthesis of acetylcholine, one of the neurotransmitters. This compound acts as a mediator in neuromuscular connections, enabling effective muscle contraction.
Vitamin B12 supports nervous functions at a slightly different level. It turns out to be essential in the process of differentiation of nerve cells. Additionally, its deficiency results in the appearance of anaemia, which may lead to the appearance of symptoms of circulatory and respiratory failure, limiting the athlete's strength and body figure progression.
Also, the addition of L-carnitine (GlycoCarn® with an acetyl derivative) is not a coincidence. It is believed that it plays an auxiliary role in reducing fat tissue, so it is a great choice for those who are in the reduction phase, but also want to develop the so-called ‘lean’ muscle mass. This effect takes place by transporting fatty acids to the mitochondria, the intracellular organelles in which they are burned.
L-tyrosine is a specific amino acid because it can be both a part of muscle proteins and a precursor compound for the synthesis of thyroid hormones or adrenal glands. Without its presence it is impossible to maintain proper functions of the nervous and hormonal system.
To sum up, Universal Shock Therapy is a blend of active ingredients composed for those who want to prepare the whole body in the most professional way to fight their weaknesses in the training room. Active ingredients acting comprehensively, strongly support anabolism, protect against catabolism of muscle cells, and allow for moderate stimulation before the exercise.
Use only before training. People sensitive to stimulants may start from using half a recommended dose. It is worth increasing the intake of liquids during supplementation. Do not use in the evening hours, because of the possible effect of sleep quality deterioration.
Universal is a well known among bodybuilders manufacturer of nutritional supplements and diet supplements. The company offers a wide range of amino-acid supplements, vitamin and mineral supplements complexes, energy bars, protein supplements, gainers, recovery supplements and supplements supporting fat burning and muscle building.
