In the body building world if you want the edge, and want to get the best bang for your buck you need to buy and take the best products out there. That means taking what works! That's why Betancourt Nutrition has come out with an advanced version of its wildly popular Ripped Juice Extreme caps. Now you can get Ripped Juice in an easy to assimilate quick acting liquid format! This is what it's all about, it's time to get with the program and see what science has to offer.
Our Liquid Ripped Juice Extreme formula has been specifically designed to act on several levels, ingredients like propylene glycol that are in Ripped Juice is classified as a humectant (A humectant is a substance that helps attract and retains moisture and is a solvent). This is very important, especially to the athlete that trains their ass off in the gym and needs to feel it while they are there, and then recuperate as fast as is possible. Propylene glycol helps the body to remain hydrated, because if you become dehydrated by as little as 3% it will reduce your performance by many times that amount! Propylene glycol also acts as a preservative, a solvent and a stabilizer for vitamins such as (A and D). Since it acts as a solvent it also has the ability to draw out some of the amazing 'actives' that are found in the herbs in Ripped Juice Extreme! You may not know it but this is the 'edge', this is what you want, it makes the product more functional and provides you with the power to kick ass in the gym.
This is one of the most advanced thermogenic formulas available on the market today! It contains a unique blend of 16 different biologically affective ingredients, Ripped Juice™ Concentrated is a good source of thermogenics that help to mobilize fat, that help to control your appetite and may help to maintain lean muscle mass.
Ripped Juice™ Concentrated is a liquefied dietary supplement consisting of 20 pharmanutrients and botanical extracts.
Ripped Juice™ Concentrated comes in a liquefied dosage format for oral administration only. It contains an exclusive and proprietary flavor system ('Sweet-Coated' Technology) that renders key ingredients in the formula more palatable.
As a supplement to the diet, Ripped Juice™ Concentrated is intended for daily use by male and female bodybuilding athletes 18 years of age and older who wish to increase their energy and motivation, reduce body fat and achieve levels of muscle leanness and definition above and beyond what may be possible through diet and exercise alone.
As a dietary supplement, take 1 serving (4 cc) in the morning, after meal. Depending on tolerance, take another serving 4-6 hours later.
Ripped Juice™ Concentrated Stimulytic Formula 1657 mg: A highly purified blend of 20 pharmanutrients and botanical extracts that scientific studies suggest may increase or enhance:
- Energy, mood and motivation: When your energy, mood and motivation are high, it is easier to lose body fat and prevent it from coming back.
- Lipolysis: Lipolysis refers to the breakdown of body fat. Without lipolysis, fat loss cannot occur.
- Endurance: The greater your endurance, the more calories you can burn during your workouts.
- Vasodilation and blood flow: When blood flow to muscle increases, your muscles appear fuller, shapelier and more defined. Performance can also increase.
- Whole-body thermogenesis: Thermogenesis refers to the conversion of calories into heat. Once converted into heat, calories can no longer be stored as body fat.
- Metabolic rate: The higher your metabolic rate, the more calories you are burning per unit of time. This reduces the risk of gaining body fat.
- Control of appetite
- Cognitive performance
Fat Balance and Fat Loss
Fat is stored on the body in a type of connective tissue known as adipose tissue. The total amount of adipose tissue referred to as the 'fat mass', as opposed to the 'fat-free mass', or 'lean mass', which includes skeletal muscle tissue.
In order to reduce your body fat you must achieve what scientists refer to as a 'negative fat balance'. This occurs when your body burns, or oxidizes, more fat than it stores. If a sufficiently large negative fat balance is sustained, then the result will be a decrease in fat mass and the appearance of harder and/or more defined muscles. Any intervention that increases the burning of fat can therefore be said to promote a negative fat balance, reductions in body fat and increases in muscle harness and definition. Examples include exercise, a reduction in food intake, and the use of a dietary supplement like Ripped Juice™ Concentrated.
Ripped Juice™ Concentrated is considered a 'stimulytic' agent because it contains ingredients that stimulate lipolysis and other processes that are required to reduce body fat. Below we discuss the scientific rationale behind each ingredient found in the Ripped Juice™ Concentrated Stimulytic formula.
Beta-Alanine: This ingredient is used to increase fat-burning endurance during exercise.
Caffeine Anhydrous: Caffeine has been well documented to increase metabolic rate, perceived energy levels, strength and endurance, in addition to enhancing cognitive performance.
L-Carnitine: Studies suggest that supplementation with L-carnitine can increase muscle mass, reduce body fat, increase blood flow, oxygen delivery and ATP resynthesis, and support nerve and muscle tissue from damage during exercise.
L-Taurine: L-Taurine has been added to Ripped Juice™ Concentrated to improve fat-burning endurance during exercise.
Guarana Extract (22% caffeine)(paullinia cupana)(seed): Guarana has been included in the formula as an additional source of caffeine.
L-Valine Nitrate, L-Leucine Nitrate, L-Isoleucine Nitrate: L-valine, L-leucine and L-isoleucine together comprise the branched-chain amino acids (BCAA). Nitrated BCAAs have been included in the formula to increase nitric oxide levels and muscle protein synthesis.
L-Arginine Nitrate: Nitrated arginine has been added to support nitric oxide levels. In addition, studies suggest that l-arginine can increase nitrogen balance and reduce sodium and water retention.
MCT (medium chain triglycerides): MCT have been added to increase energy levels. They are rapidly burned by the liver and other tissues, yielding ATP. ATP is the ultimate source of energy for most cells in the body, including those of muscle. Green
Tea Extract (std. to 20% caffeine)(camellia sinensis)(leaf): Green tea has been suggested to increase metabolic rate and reduce body fat.
Hoodia Gordonii 20:1 (herb): Hoodia displays properties that may be of value in the control of appetite.
L-Tyrosine AKG, L-Tyrosine: Tyrosine is an amino acid precursor to neurotransmitters including dopamine and norepinephrine, both of which affect mood and cognitive function.
Kola Nut Extract (std. to 3% caffeine)(cola acuminata)(seed): Kola nut has been included in the formula as an additional source of caffeine.
Evodia Extract (std. to 10% evodiamine)(evodia rutaecarpa)(fruit): Studies suggest that Evodia reduces body fat by increasing thermogenesis.
Citrus Aurantium Extract 50:1 (std. to 30% synephrine)(fruit): Citrus Aurantium contains adrenergic amines including hordenine, octopamine and synephrine. Synephrine stimulates lipolysis and increases the burning of fat.
Chocamine® (theobroma cacau)(seed): Chocamine® has been included to provide additional caffeine and other methylxanthines.
Bioperine® (black pepper extract) (std. to 95% piperine) (piper nigrum) (fruit)
L-5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP): 5-HTP is a precursor to serotonin, a neurotransmitter involved in the regulation of mood.
Yohimbe Extract (std. to 8% total alkaloids) (pausinystalia yohimbe) (bark): Yohimbine has been added to stimulate lipolysis.
White Willow Extract 4:1 (salix alba) (bark): White Willow has been added to enhance the effects of caffeine.
Vinpocetine: Vinpocetine has been added to increase blood flow to the brain.
