If you are looking for a pre-workout shake that will help power you up for the gym and make you feel like hitting the plates, wait no longer. The nitric oxide (NO) activators, creatine and stimulants in this formula will energize you while helping to make you look more vascular and gain size. Shock Therapy can actually motivate you to get into the gym and hit the weights! Unlike many of the other pre-workout NO products on the market, we include an antioxidant complex that is essential when taking nitric oxide stimulating ingredients, due to their oxidative nature on human cells. Now you can have the 'perpetual pump,' the intense workout you crave, and keep your body safe from the free radicals that are produced as a side effect of the nitric oxide activation process.
Why should you choose Universal Nutrition's Shock Therapy?
It Works. If you want to get energized and motivated in the gym, Shock Therapy is for you. This formula will make for some very intense workouts that will help you put up more weight and will ultimately result in mass gains. Your body will feel pumped all day from the blood rushing to your muscle tissue delivering needed nutrients for real growth. We don't use any sugar so there is no worry about fat gains. We use the best ingredients, from creatine all the way to our antioxidant blend. You won't find another product like Shock Therapy; it is truly unique amongst pre-workout energizers and cell volumizers.
It has a healthier formula. Since Shock Therapy helps your body produce more nitric oxide, you need an anti-oxidant complex to scavenge the harmful free radicals that are released as a result of the nitric oxide process. Our competitors aren't keeping your health in mind; we are.
It has a better formula. Shock Therapy uses R-ALA to help shuttle the creatine and nitric oxide stimulating components into circulation, whereas the competition either does not use any form of alpha lipoic acid or uses the standard ALA, which has been shown to be less effective than R-ALA. Many individuals do not like to ingest aspartame and prefer sweeteners such as sucralose. Shock Therapy does not use any aspartame, while some of the other popular products do.
Shock Therapy™ & The Mind Game
So much of the pursuit of bodybuilding is mental. Physical effort, genetic predisposition, hard earned muscle? Yes, these are all obvious factors necessary for success in the gym. But without that mental edge, without that pinpoint focus, and the ability to generate the intensity needed to take your physique to the next level, you'll go nowhere. Such is the plight of the bodybuilder. The bigger and more advanced you are, the more difficult it becomes to get it done, day in and day out.
Over the years, you've tried every supplement that came down the pike. Energy products, cell volumizers--anything you could get your hands on that just might have given you that edge that you were looking for. And every time, you came away disappointed. You've eagerly sought something to reignite that fire... Something to get you through those tough days when you just didn't 'have it.' You want a product that will make you feel alive in the gym, in the zone... Something that will make you look forward to your training. You want increased strength, better pumps-you long for the fruits of your labor.
Enter Shock Therapy™. Mental focus, training intensity, strength gains and mind-blowing pumps. In one single product, Shock Therapy™ addresses all of your training needs, inside and out. Your trips to the gym will never be the same. The Research and Development department at Universal Nutrition has pulled out all the stops in formulating a product using the most cutting edge, complementary ingredients designed specifically to maximize your training potential
NO Super Pump Complex
First up is the NO Super Pump Complex, a proprietary blend of Arginine AKG, Citrulline Malate and Carnosine. This blend was designed to maximize nitric oxide (NO) release. Nitric oxide is a free form gas that is produced in the body and is used to communicate between cells. It's a well-known fact that nitric oxide increases blood flow. This makes it of great importance to athletes, as increased blood flow will serve to deliver more nutrients to muscles, thus helping muscles become larger when subjected to training.
During an intense workout one of the main factors limiting your muscular power and endurance is oxygen and availability of oxygen-rich nutrients. The NO Super Pump Complex can help you pump clean oxygen and energy-producing nutrients into muscle cells at a faster rate, thus allowing your muscles to sustain a greater workload. The NO Super Pump Complex can give you incredible muscular pumps and greatly enhance your vascularity-for that hard and shredded look.
Muscle Volumizing Complex
While the NO Super Pump Complex is working to maximize nitric oxide production, the Muscle Volumizing Complex, with its blend of tricreatine malate and glycocyamine, helps to expand your cells. The Muscle Volumizing Complex does this by allowing the muscle cell itself to hold more water, thus increasing muscle cell volume.
Now don't confuse this with extracellular water, which is a term for water retention under the skin. Shock Therapy™ focuses on intracellular water retention, drawing water into your muscle tissues like a magnet. For a lifter or bodybuilder, this is significant because expanded muscle cells can boost hydration, resulting in a higher rate of protein synthesis and increasing the appearance of muscle fullness.
Energy & Nootropic Complex
Next up is the Energy and Nootropic Complex. This proprietary complex consists of specialized energizing compounds such as methylxanthines and evodiamine. These powerful compounds energize your body for insane workouts. These fast-acting substances will help deliver maximum energy and power output and will stay in your system for the duration of your workout.
So what are 'nootropics'? These are powerful brain-boosting substances that hone focus. They help increase mental alertness and provide the surge needed to maximize your training on a neurological level. This complex will aid in giving you the ultimate 'mind-body' rush that will kick your workouts into a whole new gear. This blend of energizers and nootropics are not just stimulants. These powerful substances will reach deep into the muscle cell to provide lasting power, delaying the onset of muscle fatigue.
Unlike any other pre-workout NO product on the market, we are one of the first to add in vitally important antioxidants. Nitric oxide is an essential molecule in the body. However, a side effect of nitric oxide supplementation is the potential production of free radicals. Free radicals are molecules that can damage your cells. However, there is a way to combat those free radicals so you are able to elicit the benefits of nitric oxide without the harmful side effects.
The Antioxidant Complex in Shock Therapy™ is a blend of select, potent antioxidants including green tea extract, R-ALA, NAC and grapeseed extract. This powerful blend was specifically designed to help neutralize harmful free radicals that are a by-product of NO. In short, the Antioxidant Complex allows you gain the positive benefits of increased NO levels without hindering your gains or jeopardizing your overall health--this is the 'therapy' component of Shock Therapy™ and you won't find it anywhere else.
Electrolyte & pH Delivery Complex
Shock Therapy™ has everything you need to tear the gym apart, but all of the greatest ingredients in the world mean nothing if you don't have the proper delivery system to shuttle them to your muscles. Our electrolyte and pH delivery system is key for enhanced absorption and maximum nutrient uptake.
This powerful blend of nutrient enhancers helps pull the proprietary Shock Therapy™ complex of muscle building nutrients into the muscles. It not only pulls and traps these nutrients inside the muscle, but also helps improve their uptake by the cells. This innovative system can dramatically enhance the pump, fuel the body for powerful training sessions, decrease lactic acid build up, replenish lost electrolytes, improve endurance and energy, and saturate the muscle with nutrients for growth. Everything a bodybuilder could ever wish for.
Shock Therapy™ from Universal Nutrition. The one, complete supplement that can change the way you train. Packed with energy factors, growth nutrients, antioxidants and nootropic 'brain boosters', Shock Therapy™ can be your greatest ally in the fight against training monotony and progress plateaus. With Shock Therapy™ you'll never go through the motions again.
Worst Pre-workout I've ever purchased. Not only does it take everything I have to drink a glass of it without throwing it back up into the sink, I literally doubled the recommended dosage for a 200lb+ athlete in the attempt to actually feel something. No energy boost, no lovely tingle, no extra pump. If you like working out while nauseous then this is the product for you. The only thing it has going for it is that it mixes up well. I sincerely regret buying this pre-workout so I'm writing this ugly review in hopes of being the only one. Do not buy this carp. Reviewer: Ben from Kenucky | Date: 11/14/2014 7:19:54 AM

Good stuff that works Been on Shock Therapy for about 2 weeks now and this stuff rocks. Was on NO-Explode for awhile but the effects seemed to diminish after the first day. When I started taking this I had the same effect but I've been having it day after day. Massive Pumps, great energy, Superb Product. Reviewer: phoenixld from Youngstown, OH | Date: 3/12/2008
