RPM® is a trend-setter, an innovative product that has often been imitated but is still “THE ORIGINAL” pre-workout in a capsule. It is the first formulation to contain a high-dose of Icariin, a potent phytochemical that has been suggested to support heightened cGMP levels and increased PDE-5 inhibition.† The key ingredients within RPM® also may support increased energy and cognitive awareness.†
1. L-Arginine is an amino acid that is necessary for cell division, ammonia displacement, hormone release and immune function. Most importantly, L-Arginine supports the production of nitric oxide within the body.†1
2. Cocoa Extract (Theobroma cacao) is comprised of several different important constituents that enhance vasodilation, energy and cognitive awareness. The epicatechins contained in cocoa have been linked to enhanced levels of flow mediated dilation (FMD), an important marker of vascular function associated with increased levels of NO.†2
3. Caffeine triggers increased dopamine functionality through blocking the adenosine receptor, which exerts a positive influence on mood and energy, while helping the subject maintain improved focus.†3
