Taurine – An amino acid found throughout the body, but especially in muscle and nerve tissue. Taurine assists in regulating heartbeat and muscle contractions, and levels of neurotransmitters in the brain. It is also essential for the proper use of electrolytic minerals—calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sodium—and ensures proper muscle function. Taurine also increases concentration and focus without stimulating the nervous system. Perhaps most important to athletes, taurine supplementation is correlated with increases in VO2 max and time to exhaustion due to its ability to buffer lactic acid and maintain healthy pH levels.
Beta-Alanine – This amino acid simultaneously neutralizes acidity levels and enhances blood flow to working muscles—both of which enhance sports performance.
L-Carnitine Fumarate – This amino acid transports fatty acids into the mitochondria for conversion of cellular energy. Fumaric acid (fumarate) is a Krebs Cycle Intermediate and plays a vital role in energy production.
Spectra™ – A proprietary blend of 29 vegetable, fruit, and herbal ingredients. Spectra™ has been shown in a crossover, double-blind, placebo-controlled study to increase nitric oxide (NO) levels by 64%. Increasing NO levels result in increased blood flow to muscles, enhancing delivery of nutrients and oxygen to working muscles, thus supporting increases in endurance and strength. That same study showed that Spectra™ also provides powerful antioxidant support, reducing free radical production.
Green Tea Extract (standardized to 50% polyphenols) – A natural source of caffeine—each serving of Fully Charged contains approximately 15 mg—green tea also contains polyphenols that provide antioxidant and cardiovascular health support.
elevATP™ – A proprietary, clinically-researched blend of plant-derived trace minerals and polyphenol-rich apple extracts, elevATP™ works with the body's natural energy-producing mechanisms to stimulate production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy currency of the body.
Beet Root Juice Powder – A rich source of nitrates, which help boost nitric oxide (NO) levels.
Tyrosine – This amino acid is the precursor for several important neurotransmitters that are involved in alleviating stress and fatigue. Tyrosine also promotes mental alertness.
Tart Cherry Extract (standardized to 6.5% anthocyanins) – Cherries contain naturally occurring compounds (anthocyanins) shown to reduce inflammation, which in turn helps maintain normal muscle function, decreases soreness, and accelerates recovery.
Soluble Corn Fiber (as Fibersol®-2 AG) – A digestive resistant maltodextrin used as a prebiotic that facilitates healthful digestion while neutralizing the taste of the product.
Tapioca Maltodextrin – A natural root-based starch used in minimal amounts to improve flavor and mixability.
Natural Cherry Flavor – Combined with Tart Cherry Extract, this gives Fully Charged its light cherry flavor.
