TREC Vandal is a pre-workout formula based on the most effective ingredients. It multidimensionally promotes effort abilities, allowing to overcome barriers and provide your body with maximal training stimuli.
Thanks to the comprehensive composition of the product rich in the best-researched, well-tried substances, TREC Vandal ensures maximal support at all layers, which is reflected in training abilities. It allows to accomplish the toughest, the most effective trainings, which in the long run is reflected in faster achievement of goals. We will find the following ingredients in the composition of the product:
Beta-Alanine – an amino acid, which is a carnosine precursor in the human organism. Properly high supply of beta-alanine is conducive to the synthesis of carnosine, a compound important for the metabolism of lactates in muscle tissue. It constitutes a buffer of acid-base environment, thanks to which it is able to optimize pH in myocytes. From the point of view of workout, it is important due to the secretion of lactic acid during intensive physical effort. Carnosine neutralizes its influence, maintaining physiological acid-base environment. It is noticeable in decreased soreness, limiting training capacity and delayed muscle fatigue.
Citrulline malate – provides citrulline, which demonstrates the ability to promote the synthesis of nitric oxide in the organism. NO is responsible for increasing the lumen of blood vessels, therefore, increased supply of citrulline is reflected in the stimulation of venous-arterial flow. It is noticeable as the so-called “muscle pump”. The promotion of blood circulation increases the level of muscle nourishment, thanks to which it enables their more intensive and longer work.
Arginine alpha-ketoglutarate – similarly to citrulline, it takes part in the synthesis of nitric oxide and its supplementation has stimulating influence on the activity of eNOS synthase. It increases the lumen of blood vessels, enabling increased transport of blood in the circulatory system. Apart from the influence on effort abilities, it also affects in this way post-workout recovery. Larger supply of nutrients is conducive to the processes of building muscle mass. Stimulators of nitric oxide synthesis also have positive influence on sexual ability, thanks to increasing blood supply in sex organs.
Taurine – an amino acid, important for energy metabolism and the functioning of the nervous system. It plays the function of a neurotransmitter, influences nerve transmission. It also positively influences cognitive abilities, facilitates concentration and fact association. High concentration of taurine is characterized for intensively developing organisms.
Another fundamental function of taurine in the organism is the transport of creatine. In this way, it works synergistically with creatine contained in the preparation, promoting its effectiveness towards energy system.
Tyrosine – an amino acid, which is a precursor for many neurotransmitters, demonstrating general stimulating influence. Its increased supply is conducive to the synthesis of catecholamines, adrenaline and noradrenaline, which play important functions in the organism’s stimulation. They introduce the organism in the “fight or flight” mode, which promotes physical efficiency of the organism, allowing to increase training load.
Apart from this, tyrosine is also a precursor of dopamine, an important compound responsible for the sense of motivation and good mood. Due to this, the supplement influences not only endurance aspects, but also mental ones. Dopamine is also responsible for neuromotor coordination.
L-Carnitine tartrate – a highly assimilable form of L-carnitine, an important compound for oxygen balance in the organism. It is responsible for transporting fatty acids to mitochondria, enabling their oxygenation. It also positively influences in this way the efficiency of aerobic energy transformations. It is reflected in higher efficiency, especially during long-lasting efforts, such as cardio. L-carnitine is also used in order to increase the pace of fat burning.
Moreover, this compound may also demonstrate slightly stimulating effect, due to the stimulation of the synthesis of the main stimulating neurotransmitter in the organism, acetylcholine. In the process of its production, it plays a role of a donor of acetyl groups, therefore proper supply of L-carnitine positively influences ACh production.
Caffeine anhydrous – an alkaloid, commonly used as a stimulant. It demonstrates considerable abilities to reduce fatigue and increase training abilities. Its effectiveness results from two independent systems that it affects.
First of all, caffeine is a competitive inhibitor of adenosine, therefore it demonstrates the ability to bind with its receptors, without activating them. At the same time, it limits the ability of adenosine to bind with them. In this way, the ability to transmit its characteristic information about fatigue is limited. It allows to inhibit the feeling of exhaustion.
Secondly, caffeine plays the role of a competitive inhibitor of cAMP-phosphodiesterase, an enzyme carrying out the reaction of cyclic adenosine monophosphate breakdown to its non-cyclic, inactive form. In this way, the supply of caffeine increases the amount of cAMP in a cell, which promotes the effectiveness of adrenaline in the organism, therefore caffeine has a stimulating effect on the organism’s functions. This effect is synergistic with other ingredients of this supplement, promoting the synthesis of catecholamines.
Coenzyme Q10 – also called ubiquinone, is a compound with an incredibly important role for energy metabolism on cellular level. It appears in mitochondria, where it is responsible for the transport of electrons in the respiratory chain. Supplementation with coenzyme Q10 has positive influence on the efficiency of energy processes in the organism, especially when it comes to aerobic efforts. It also works synergistically with other ingredients of the preparation, focused on the promotion of oxygen functions of energy changes. Moreover, coenzyme Q10, due to its important role in the organism is used as a compound, which multidimensionally supports health and life-quality.
Vitamin B6 – a vitamin, which plays an important role in energy metabolism on the level of nutrient absorption. It enables proper processing of fats, carbohydrates and proteins, is conducive to efficient energy extraction from macronutrients. It is responsible for proper functions of many enzymes. It demonstrates positive influence on the synthesis of adrenaline and serotonin. It may have analgesic effect, limits the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases and promotes the functions of the nervous system.
Thiamin – also called vitamin B1, is a compound playing an important role in the process of cellular respiration. It is yet another active ingredient of the preparation, supporting aerobic processes of energy extraction. It is also conducive to the synthesis of acetylcholine. Proper supply of vitamin B1 is incredibly vital to maintain appropriate functions of the circulatory and nervous system.
Crea Powder Matrix – the blend of three acclaimed forms of creatine: monohydrate, malate and hydrochloride. It is very important for training abilities and muscle anabolism. The application of creatine increases the efficiency of the process of energy extraction from phosphagens, which is the main energy pathway during short-lasting efforts (such as sets during strength training or sprints). In this way, it considerably influences effort abilities, allowing to generate larger stimuli to develop.
Anabolic potential of creatine is also related to its influence on the activity of myostatins, i.e. the factors limiting the development of muscle tissue. By limiting their functions, creatine is conducive to building myocytes.
Moreover, creatine also influences the volume of sarcoplasm, increasing it. In this way, it optimizes the environment inside muscle tissue, which is conducive to physiological processes inside and the processes leading to regeneration and growth.
Importantly, creatine is a compound which has been incredibly well-researched and considered as safe, even in long-lasting application. Subsequent studies not only confirm minimal risk of use of this supplement, but also prove new positive aspects of its application, not only related to muscle tissue, but also nerve tissue. Creatine is attributed neuroprotective effect.
To sum up, TREC Vandal is a supplement, which simply works. It intensively stimulates, promotes physical efficiency and optimizes physiological processes, aiming at maximal ability of the organism. It multidimensionally supports physical and mental abilities and is conducive to recovery and growth of muscle tissue, at the same time being a universal supplement, which can be applied regardless of the current training goal.
It is recommended to start supplementation from half a dose in order to determine individual tolerance and its gradual increase until the achievement of satisfying effects or the dose suggested by the producer.
It is not recommended to combine the preparation with other stimulating substances due to the high content of stimulants in the composition of the product.

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.
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.
Taurine – non-protein amino acid containing sulphur, which is synthesized in the body from methionine and cysteine, present in sufficient amount in human or animal body (in the brain, heart and skeletal), although in some cases must be supplemented. Significantly affects the calcium content in the cells and stabilizes the water and electrolyte balance and maintains acid-base balance. Takes part in the synthesis of bile acids. In the body acts as a neurotransmitter and neuromodulator. It is an insulin-mimetic improving insulin metabolism, responsible for transport of nutrients (such as amino acids, glucose, creatine) to the cells and muscle tissue. These properties determine that it is a valued mono-preparation supplement and valuable addition to creatine and amino acid supplements, recommended for psycho-pchysically active people and athletes and other competitive sportsmen in pre- and post-workout periods.
Dosage: 3 grams per day.
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.
L-carnitine tartrate is formed from the combination of L-carnitine tartrate (organic acid) in a single molecule, increasing the interaction (synergism) of each of the substances used. L-carnitine is supplied to the body from the outside through animal food (mutton, beef, venison) or a combination of amino acids (lysine and methionine). It participates in the transport of long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria of the cell where they are burned. Tartrate reduces the deposition of fatty acids in the cells, thereby enhancing the effects of L-carnitine. It is recommended in endurance sports supplementation, as a dietary supplement for people on a slimming diet and to supplement the shortage of l-carnitine of people not consuming meat products (vegans).
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.
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.
Coenzyme Q10 (ubiquinone) is a physiological antioxidant, a fat soluble. It takes an active part in the process of creating the energy of ATP. intracorporeal synthesis requires the presence of B vitamins and trace elements, its intensification is caused by heavy training stress or under the influence of stress. Beneficial effects of Coenzyme Q10 has been found on the cardiovascular system, lipid profile (lowering LDL) cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease. Reducing the level of coenzyme Q10 starts when the age of 35, hence must be supplemented by preparations available in cosmetics (external action on the skin), and supplements intensifying the production of energy (for athletes strength) as well as mono-preparation supplement available at www.muscle-zone.pl.
Dosage: 10 - 90 mg / 24h
Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine, pyridoxal, pyridoxamine) is soluble in the liquid. It participates in the metabolism of proteins, fats and carbohydrates. By reducing the amount of fat in the blood do not enable deposition of the body. It helps the absorption of magnesium and vitamin B12 (cobalamin). It works on the muscle antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory pain in the joints. It acts anti. It provides efficient operation of the brain. It increases energy increasing vigor of a man. The demand for vitamin B6 increases during pregnancy and breast-feeding infants. The natural product is: yeast, eggs, wheat germ, meat (liver), wheat bran, nuts, peanuts peanuts, soybeans. There is a hypothesis that can be synthesized by intestinal bacteria.
Deficiency of vitamin B6 causes abnormal metabolism of proteins, decrease in lymphocytes in the blood, causes a feeling of lethargy and fatigue intensifies.
Dosage: 1.5-2.5 mg daily (increased demand during pregnancy and lactation).
What is pyridoxine hydrochloride?
Pyridoxine hydrochloride is a basic, the most commonly used form of vitamin B6 in supplements and fortified foods. It is a vitamin soluble in water. It converts to the active form of the vitamin - pyridoxal phosphate.
Vitamin B6 is a cofactor in many enzymatic reactions. It takes part in the production of many neurotransmitters, such as GABA, serotonin and catecholamines and it takes part in the metabolism of amino acids, carbohydrates and lipids. It is an important factor for the process of the creation of red cells and hemoglobin and its deficit may be one of the factors causing anemia. This vitamin contributes to maintaining proper energy metabolism and is important for maintaining well-being and good psychological condition. Its presence supports the breakdown of pro-inflammatory homocysteine to cysteine and further metabolites, thanks to which it may decrease the risk of atherosclerosis and cardiological incidents.
Pyridoxine hydrochloride may be found in many vitamin B complexes and vitamin-mineral preparations available in the offer of muscle-zone.pl.
Thiamine hydrochloride - a highly bioavailable form of thiamine, also called vitamin B1. Due to an important role that it plays in carbohydrate metabolism, its increased supply is recommended to people with excessively high concentration of sugar in blood. It facilitates their processing in the organism and supports the activities that aim at restoring optimal glycemia. An important role in the metabolism of nutrients is also played by an integral component of carboxylase coenzyme - thiamine pyrophosphate.
Some source suggest the effectiveness of thiamine in relation to the health of the cardiovascular system, apart from decreasing glucose level in blood, it is also reflected in optimization of blood pressure. Although this aspect of effectiveness of vitamin B1 requires further research, it is another argument demonstrating special needs of taking care of proper thiamine supply by people from the risk group of the circulatory system diseases.
Among people who are especially prone to vitamin B1 deficiencies there are also people fighting with excess weight and frequently drinking alcohol.
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 malate (tri-creatine malate, TCM, di-creatine malate) is a combination of one molecule of creatine and three (or two) of molecules of malic acid in the ionized form (malate) in one molecule. It has better solubility in liquids of creatine monohydrate. Malate is involved in energy conversion enhancing effect of creatine in this regard. With proper use of creatine malate, there is an increase in exercise capacity of the body (strength and endurance), acceleration - although slower than provide other compounds creatine for better quality - of increase in lean body mass, provides faster and better biological regeneration after exercise. To have a fast saturation of the muscles with creatine, products containing insulin should be used (carbohydrates and proteins) or insulin-mimetic (and the substances of similar ALA, D-pinitol, taurine). Creatine malate is available in the form of powders and capsules (mono-preparation supplements and creatine stacks), for purchase at muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: Usual recommendation in sports, depends on the form of supplement, the type of exercises and weight, uses one of the following creatine dosage models:
- cyclic supplementation: 5-10g per day in 1-3 portions during the day, 2-5g per dose. Cycle length approx. 4-12 weeks
- Constant supplementation: 0,03-0,05g per kg of body weight for an extended period of time.
Creatine hydrochloride is an advanced form of creatine formed by combining a creatine molecule with hydrochloric acid. Experts estimate that it is 41 times more soluble in water than creatine monohydrate. It also seems to be much more bioavailable for tissues. Increased absorption means that you need smaller doses to obtain the desired results. In addition, excess water retention and gastrointestinal complaints, which often occur while supplementing with other forms of creatine, are no longer a problem. Creatine hydrochloride also does not require a so-called loading phase.
Creatine hydrochloride produces the same effects as other forms of creatine, including the most thoroughly tested creatine mononhydrate. It effectively stimulates ATP resynthesis, may inhibit myostatin activity and supports a healthy nervous system. It has anabolic and anticatabolic properties and helps improve athletic endurance and performance.
In supplementation creatine hydrochloride is available in the form of powder, which is mixed with water, and capsules. It can be often found in complex pre-workout supplements
Dosage: No official guidelines.
The recommended daily dosage is usually 5 g.
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
