Ntel has once again released yet another unique pre workout.
Arez Super is a ultra-endurance enhancing energy booster that is powered by several stimulants and compounds that'll help take your workouts to the next level.
From PeakO2, to the full doses of beta alanine, citrulline and a whole bunch of stimulants, this is super pre workout formula that'll keep you in the zone until the end of your day.
Increases energy, focus and mood without a crash
Contains a balance of ingredients with full disclosure
Hardcore pre workouts are consistantly formulated by Ntel Pharma and they have not slowed down.
From Arez Black to Titanium and God Of the Gym, there's not a formula that disappointed.
Now it's the time for Arez Super, a pre workout that features a unique formula with some new ingredients.
Previously Arez had DMHA, but interestingly enough, this only has eria jarensis, but yet the mood uplift is provided by multiple ingredients.
Super covers the essentials to energy with the vitamin B complex and with mood enhancers like mucuna pruriens, higenamine and yohimbine, you'll feel at the top of your game.
Citrulline-DL-Malate 2:1 / Watermelon Powder / L-Citrulline (6g)
To get the most out of your workouts, you need to maximize blood flow to working muscles.
There's no better way to enhance blood flow than with good old citrulline.
This complex includes citrulline-DL-malate, l-citrulline and watermelon powder.
We'll get to watermelon powder in a second…
As you may know, citrulline can increase nitric oxide through elevating arginine levels, providing better vasodilation of blood vessels.
When citrulline is consumed, the kidneys convert it to arginine.
By using citrulline, you're using the 3 amino acids, l-citrulline, l-arginine and l-ornithine, which are required to reduce and recycle the body's build up of ammonia.
Using citrulline will help maximize high intensity exercise while reducing muscle soreness because of its ability to remove ammonia.
An interesting part of the 6g dose is the watermelon powder.
It may seem odd, but watermelon isn't just a delicious snack, it's full out nutritional addition to Arez Super because it's loaded with nutrients and citrulline.
There's additional benefits when taking both, citrulline and watermelon together for more muscle growth.
In 2013, a study discovered when athletes consumed watermelon juice with citrulline, they had better recovery.
An interesting thing about this is that absorption rates were better for citrulline when consumed with watermelon.
Aside from citrulline, watermelon powder also contains a substantial amount of vitamin A and C.
Beta Alanine (3.2g)
While you'll get some nasty pumps from citrulline along with fatigue fighting benefits, beta alanine is purely made to help prolong high intensity and reduce fatigue.
Like creatine, it's one of the most researched and proven ingredients in the supplement industry.
Research has found that beta alanine works well when exercises are performed anywhere from 60 to 240 seconds. It allows the body to sustain high intensity activities while increasing the time it takes for the body to reach exhaustion.
One study in 2009 had cyclists take beta alanine and after 8 weeks, they had an average increase in peak power output of 11.4%. The placebo group only had 5% increase.
This means you won't only be able to maintain high intensity activities for longer periods of time but you'll also have more power.
The 3.2g dose here is huge and is the clinical dose needed to see the benefits.
SUPRA-THORN (Beta vulgaris crataegus monogyna 1.5g)
This is one of the ingredients you probably have never had in a pre workout.
Supra-Thorn is a mix of beta vulgaris and hawthorn.
Beta vulgaris, or beet root extract, has a number of benefits.
It's mainly known for its nitrate content, making it a great addition for a pre workout supplement.
Beetroot extract is mainly used to treat hypertension, it helps control blood pressure and can lower it.
It's also been shown that it can improve cardiovascular health.
Beetroot will help increase pumps and endurance as it can improve vasodilation and blood flow.
It may seem like a complete ingredient but it is a blend with another ingredient called hawthorn.
Hawthorn helps increase blood flow and it also has plenty of antioxidant properties.
Peak02 is a patented blend of mushrooms that can improve and enhance performance.
Made and sold by Compound Solutions, this blend is used as VO2 enhancer and can also increase power output as plenty of research has proven.
A study in 2017 has found PeakO2 to reduce blood lactate levels, enhance VO2 max and decrease fatigue.
The dose here is lower than what was used in the studies as they were using 2g.
The 1g here may seem to be enough to see benefits if it was by itself but it's combined with other endurance and VO2 enhancing ingredients.
Studies have compared high dosages to lower as one study had one group take 12g daily fo 7 days and another group take 2g daily for 28 days.
The group taking 2g had all of the same benefits as the high dose group except for improved peak power.
This means at the lower dosage, it'll still be effective when used for at least a few weeks.
PeakO2 is perfect for pump focused pre workouts even if it doesn't seem to activate the traditional mechanisms for the pump like how agmatine or citrulline would.
Since it can enhance endurance, it'll let you perform more reps than you normally would.
The dose at 1g is solid, though not the most generous, it still has potential to increase endurance.
Rhodiola Crenulata (100mg)
Rhodiola, or rhodiola rosea is an adaptogen that's found in mountainous areas of eastern Europe and Asia.
It's an ancient herb that's known to increase physical and mental energy.
This herb has many bioactive compounds but the ones that are most known are the rosavins and salidrosides.
Generally the percentages of both should be known but here it's not stated.
Research has shown rhodiola to boost focus and energy while reducing fatigue.
One study in 2000, found that rhodiola reduced fatigue and improved mental performance in work related tasks to doctors working night shifts.
However this study was using rhodiola with 3% salidrosides.
Another study found taking 400mg of the herb can decrease stress and fatigue. (2)
100mg may just be enough to see benefits but it's still a welcome addition to a hard hitting pre workout.
It's a feel good adaptogen that'll add on to the mood uplifting effects that some ingredients provide.
Nelumbo Nucifera (300mg)
Nelumbo nucifera, or higenamine, is an extract that can enhance mood, energy and focus by boosting serotonin production.
This compliments and works in synergy with rhodiola, caffeine and other stimulants in here.
There's more to it though.
Some research has found that higenamine may prevent the breakdown of acetylcholine, allowing you to focus for prolonged periods of time.
It also works as a thermogenic.
Mega dose alert!
Usually higenamine is dosed at around 100, but here it's at 300mg!
Prepare yourself for some uplifting and feel good energy from this dose alone.
Caffeine is the grandfather of all stimulant energy.
It's the most researched stimulant with studies proving time and time again it's effectiveness.
At this dose, it is safe to say that Arez Super is a hard hitter that shouldn't be taken lightly, nor can it be.
At 350mg, it's a big dose especially considering the other stimulants in this formula.
They are coming right up…
N,N-Dimethylphenethylamine Citrate (50mg)
N-Phenethyl Dimethylamine, or eria jarensis, is a PEA-like ingredient that's popular for it's super euphoric effects.
It's a milder compared to DMAA's effects on mood, but when it's combined with stimulants like DMHA, it becomes the next best thing.
However Arez Super doesn't have DMHA, instead uses other ingredients that enhance mood like rhodiola and higenamine.
At 50mg, it is a welcomed addition and is just enough to have some nice mood enhancing effects.
Gamma-Butyrobetaine HCl (GBBgo 50mg)
GBB or Gamma-Butyrobetaine ethyl ester HCl is what your body naturally converts into L-Carnitine.
Other forms of carnitine like acetyl-l-carnitine (ALCAR) or l-carnitine l-tartrate (LCLT), require doses around a gram while GBB only needs to be dosed at 10mg per day.
That's a massive difference.
GBB is referred as to being Pro-Carnitine as it gets converted into carnitine when its supplemented.
By using GBB, you're forcing your body to create more L-Carnitine in order to balance it out.
Yohimbine HCl (2mg) and Alpha Yohimbine (1mg)
Arez Super has both yohimbine HCl and alpha yohimbine.
These alpha-2-adrenergic blockers are potent fat burners that can free up fatty acids for the body to use as energy.
The 2mg and 1mg dose are decent, and should lead to some decent appetite suppressing effects along with energy enhancement.
Choline is a nootropic that can help establish the mind to muscle connection.
It works by increasing the production of acetylcholine, which is important for focus and mental energy.
Here you're getting 3 highly bioavailable forms of choline, choline bitartrate, alpha GPC, and citicoline.
There's supposed to be synergy between the 3 forms, however there's little to no research that supports this.
The 200mg blend should be sufficient for a decent flow of focus and improved cognition.
L-Tyrosine is an amino acid that works as a catecholamine producer as it can increase the production of catecholamines (dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine).
It can also boost the production of adrenaline and noradrenaline, leading you to feel and have more energy and focus.
The ideal dose of tyrosine is accepted to be around 500mg to 2g.
Here you're only getting 175 so it is definitely a weak area of this pre workout.
Mucuna Pruriens (125mg)
There was a time when the supplement industry was using L-Dopa but due to it's banned use, mucuna pruriens are used instead.
Mucuna pruriens, or L-Dopa, is a levo amino acid that can boost the production of dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine.
By increasing dopamine production, it's said to be able to reduce prolactin production, leading to elevated testosterone levels.
However the dose is here is a bit low and should be decent for improved mood.
Time To Go Super?
Arez Super may not contain the exotic stimulants that we're used to seeing from them, like DMHA, it still contains many dopamine enhancers.
From eria jarenesis, caffeine, mucuna pruriens and higanamine, you'll end up feeling a nice flow of euphoria that'll last for hours at a time.
