Defcon 1 Defcon 1

PlatiniumLabsDefcon 1 is the highest quality pre-workout supplement designed for the intermediate and the advanced. The product contains a complex of multidirectional active ingredients that strongly stimulate muscles to grow, add energy, enhance the effect of the muscle pump, and also allow you to achieve maximum focus and motivation during training sessions.

The preparation consists of:
Beta alanine is a precursor to a very important substance – carnosine. Its increased level in muscles allows to improve exercise capacity.

The mechanism of carnosine action is mainly related to its buffering properties which enable the neutralization of the level of hydrogen ions and lactic acid, which are formed as a result of intense workouts and they contribute to the deterioration of performance and strength muscle, by accelerating muscle fatigue and hindering regeneration.

Agmatine sulphate is mainly involved in the production of nitric oxide (NO) by affecting alpha-2-adrenergic receptors. Thus, it contributes to the increase of the so-called muscle pump and enables a better supply of muscle cells with oxygen and nutrients needed for effective training.

However, the effect of agmatine is not limited to this phenomenon. Agmatine also participates in, among others, neuroprotective and anxiolytic effect, improves mental fitness and also helps to restore sensitivity to stimulants as well as slows the development of their tolerance.

Creatine hydrochloride is one of the better bioavailable form for our organism. This is influenced by the acidic environment of the stomach to which the hydrochloride has an affinity. This ensures that this form has a high stability (it is resistant to low pH), thus it demonstrates a high efficiency and the ability to be stored in the muscles.

Creatine is a tripeptide naturally occurring in our organism. It has the function of a specific type of energy storage in the cell because a new ATP, due to its short half-life, cannot be stored in it. Thanks to the fluid reactions of creatine with this molecule, it is possible to quickly renew it, and thus a longer and more effective muscle work.

In addition, it has been proven to have a parahormonal effect, by affecting the signaling pathways that control muscle hypertrophy through the initiation of the protein biosynthesis process. It also undergoes the protein activity that physiologically acts as inhibitor for the development of myostatin - muscle tissue, thereby causing a much more effective mass building, while in the reduction period acting anti-catabolic.

Creatine also helps to maintain a proper functioning of the nervous system. It has neuroprotective effect, it improves cognitive function and mental condition as well as it stabilizes the mood.

L-Tyrosine – is one of the exogenous amino acids, it is very important from for a proper functioning of the endocrine and nervous system. It participates in the production of catecholamines, which, as neurotransmitters, control many important aspects, thus affecting areas such as: proper mobilization of the body to stressful situations, improvement of concentration and well-being, reduction of depressive symptoms, better exercise capacity.

This compound is also needed in the synthesis of thyroid hormones, whose an important role is to control the broadly understood homeostasis of the body's energy. Its disruption results, among others, in excessive losing or putting on weight.

Choline is an important component that supports the proper functioning of the nervous system. It is a precursor to acetylcholine that is one of the most essential neurotransmitters  and which acts within the central nervous system, responsible for cognitive processes as well as it is a mediator used during the functioning of the neuromuscular junction.

The proper functioning of this structure and reaching of acetylcholine to postsynaptic terminations is observed, among others, in the form of muscular strength and therefore effective muscle contractions. It is an essential element of functioning of the motor system needed to perform proper strength training.

In the form of bitartrate, it is one of the most easily absorbed forms for the body, thanks to which its supplementation guarantees a great effectiveness in the scope of the mentioned activities.

Betaine anhydrous is a choline metabolite whose action in the body is omni-directional. Mainly, betaine anhydrous influences the maintenance of proper hydration of cells, which is necessary for the initiation of anabolic processes (its role is also similar to creatine because it contributes to the creatine synthesis).

In addition, betaine stabilizes the amount of glucose in blood, reduces homocysteine levels as well as it inhibits lipogenesis and thereby stimulating the increase in lean muscle mass.

Caffeine anhydrous and theobromine are classified as methylxanthines. Therefore it belongs to the same group of chemical compounds whose molecular action consists in the blockade of adenosine receptors in the nervous system. This effect is felt as decreasing the feeling of fatigue and in this way allowing for a longer work. Adrenergic nervous transmission may also be improved. In addition to stimulation, it "offers" increased motivation to perform a difficult training session.

Moreover, their effects are also observed in other tissues as they increase the concentration of intracellular cAMP in adipocytes, which allows to activate the enzymes needed to carry out lipolysis. It can really help people struggling with reducing of body fat to lose weight and for those working out to gain "pure" muscle mass.

Higenamine Hydrochloride is a substance belonging to the beta-2-adrenergic receptor agonists and its presence leads to the enlargement of the bronchi, contributing to a definitely better gas exchange, and also to the increased supply of oxygen to the muscles being trained. In addition, it affects the extension of blood vessels, making transport of oxygen and nutrients even easier.

JuglansRegia Root extract is a natural source of DHMA (octodrine) which is a popular chemical compound found in many preparations for athletes. Its multidirectional action includes narrowing of blood vessels and raising blood pressure, which contributes to faster delivery of nutrients and oxygen to tissues with high metabolic demand. It also causes the relaxation of the bronchial smooth muscles, thereby making the gas exchange more efficient and the blood transports more oxygen.

Root extract JuglansRegia also supports the functioning of the nervous system because it increases concentration and eliminates physical fatigue. All of these activities are particularly important during workout because they evidently translate into increased physical performance.

To sum up, Platinum LabsDefcon 1 is a top-shelf dietary supplement whose richness of active ingredients and their potency can delight many adepts of strength sports. Perfectly selected formula increases concentration and provides satisfaction of performing heavier than before training sessions, which enables the improvement of body structure.

Alanine

Information


Alanine is an endogenous amino acid (i.e. having the ability to synthesize the human body other amino acids and pyruvate), building up protein. It has a key role in the transport of nitrogen between the muscles and the liver (i.e. Cahill cycle). It allows to transform glucose in non-sugar compounds. During prolonged exercise it enhances metabolism. It occurs in products of animal origin (meat, dairy, eggs) and vegetable origins (legumes, peas). It is used in the form of amino acid supplements in pre- and post-workout preparations. It complements the BCAA. Increased use of supplements with alanine is required in athletic training when high strength and endurance is required (e.g. weights lifting athletes marathon runners etc.).

 

Betaine

Information

Betaine (N, N, N-trimethylglycine, the TMG) ​​is methyl glycine derivative participating in the conversion of homocysteine ​​to methionine. It is present in food of plant origin and produced by the body in the liver or kidneys. The medicine uses it in the treatment of gastrointestinal and digestive disorders and hyperhomocysteinemia. In the supplements that increase the level of homocysteine ​​used together with glycocyamine, indirectly influences the endogenous synthesis of creatine. There is no mono-preparation supplement containing betaine. Available in creatine stacks and the detoxicating supplements.


 

Agmatine sulfate

Information


Agmatine sulfate is a compound of agmatine, and hence the substance resulting from the processing of arginine.
It meets the body's range of functions, including increases levels of nitric oxide responsible for vasodilation and thus improves blood circulation. It stimulates the release of growth hormone and testosterone. It increases the amount of nutrients delivered to the muscles, and normalizes blood glucose levels, thereby mimicking the operation characteristic of insulin; improves the functioning of the central nervous system; fights free radicals; reduces depot body fat, and also affects the metabolism of calcium, thus providing a better functioning of the heart, brain and muscles.
Dosage: 500-1500 mg, the best half an hour before training.

Choline

Information


Choline belongs to the soluble in liquids group of B vitamins. It is an organic nitrogen base containing lecithin, and acetylcholine. Together with inositol is involved in the metabolism of fats and cholesterol metabolism, preventing its accumulation on the walls of arteries and deposits in the gallbladder. With the penetration of the brain, contained lecithin improves its action and improves memory. Used in the treatment of age-related diseases (Alzheimer's). It occurs in plant foods: yeast, wheat germ, lecithin, green leafy vegetables and egg yolks.

 

Tyrosine

Information

Tyrosine - endogenous amino acid (synthesized within the body), one of the 22 protein amino acids building. It occurs naturally in animal food products (eggs, dairy, meat). If the deficiency, it can be synthesized by hydroxylation of phenylalanine, capable of being converted to tyrosine in the liver. It is a precursor of neurotransmitters: dopamine (the group of catecholamines, participating in the processes occurring in the nervous system, causing muscle coordination and participates in the synthesis of many hormones) and noradrenaline (counteracting stress, stimulating the heart and circulatory system, and increasing glycogenolysis and lipolysis participating in the processes of energy transformations). Tyrosine is a precursor of thyroid hormones responsible for the rate of change in metabolic processes and pigment (melanin). In the supplementation, preparations containing tyrosine are used in programs reducing body fat (weight loss), improve mood and are stimulants.
Dosage: Customarily 500-2000 mg per day.


 

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.


 

Theobromine

Information


Theobromine (3,7-Dimethylxanthine) is a purine alkaloid, poorly soluble in water, present in cocoa beans, as well as the leaves of yerba mate, tea, coffee, cola and peanuts. It is a diuretic, lowers blood pressure and improves brain function (dilates the blood vessels of the brain). Also expands the blood vessels throughout the circulatory system, preventing atherosclerotic changes. Sometimes it is used in slimming diet. Combined with caffeine and polyphenols becomes thermogenic. In the sports supplementation formulations containing theobromine are used diuretics and fat burners. It is a component of thermogenics, pre-workout creatine stacks, as well as nitrogen boosters.

Higenamine

Information

Higenamine affects the production of nitric acid. Nitric acid affects the release of the hormones and adrenaline. It is also certain that the product accelerates regeneration of the body and also increases the amount of blood flow, and thus the amount of nutrients delivered to the muscles is much greater.
