Accordingly, supplementation with LCLT has been shown to increase androgen receptor levels in muscle biopsies. This increases the ability for the muscles to receive anabolic signals that would normally be obliterated. Simply stated, LCLT lets your muscles recover faster and grow more quickly in response to your workout.
L-Carnitine enhances performance by increasing the body’s reliance on fat for energy; this reduces depletion of muscle glycogen. By reducing muscle tissue lactic acid build-up, performance athletes using L-Carnitine can extend duration of muscular exertion before fatigue.
L-Carnitine is essential for transporting long-chain fats into the cell for energy production. L-Carnitine taps into your fat supply and may provide support to burn it as fuel, resulting in increased energy. Without L-Carnitine, these fats cannot be burned for energy and are instead shunted to stored body fat.
TAURINE (2,500 mg)
Taurine is an abundant intracellular amino acid in skeletal muscle and similar to creatine, Taurine draws water in muscle cells and acts as a cell volumizer. This in turn draws additional nutrients for recovery and growth, increasing cell volume and enhancing muscle fullness. And like Creatine, Taurine is not present in whey protein, whereas all other essential and nonessential amino acids are.
With intense exercise comes changes in electrolyte concentration both inside and outside of the cell, i.e. loss of muscle K+ and gain of Na+, Cl- and Ca2+. Detrimental changes in osmolarity are a consequence of membrane excitability driven by ion imblanace and cells combat this by manipulating organic osmolytes such as Taurine.
Taurine regulates water and mineral salts in the blood. It maintains movement of potassium, magnesium and sodium across the cell membranes and regulates ion balance between cells. Due to its ability to regulate electrolytes, it may play a role in preventing muscle cramping.
TAURINE + CREATINE: THE PERFECT CELL VOLUMIZERS.
Taurine also plays a role in muscle contraction, as it has been shown to increase the rate at which the sarcoplasmic reticulum accumulates Ca2+ in both type I and type II muscle fibers. Thus, it enhances the ability of the muscles to generate force by increasing the uptake and release of calcium ions. Muscle contraction leads to an increase in nitric oxide synthase and/or nitric oxide (NO).
Increases in NO have been shown to enhance glucose uptake in skeletal muscles which may enhance exercise intensity and post-exercise recovery. Taurine plays a role in Nitric Oxide production (NO gas present during muscle contraction and blood vessel dilation) and therefore may enhance the workout session and lead to a more rigorous workout.
A study posted in FASEB found several exercise-related benefits of L-Taurine. Specifically, severe restriction of TAURINE reduced mobility of skeletal muscle, while supplementation improved skeletal functions and provided an energizing effect. Moreover, lab tests have shown that muscle cells treated with taurine show significant enhancements in maturation thereby contributing to the process of muscle recovery.
BETAINE (1,000 mg)
Betaine, usually found in super-foods like wheat bran, spinach and beets, has been included to further enhance strength and power output, and not in a small dosage either – 1,000 mg a day! Betaine has been shown in new research to improve exercise performance.
Participants actually improved their squat muscular endurance and performance. These statistically significant results were shown in just 2 weeks! These massive gains are likely due to the effect of Betaine to increase muscle-promoting growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor with simultaneous decrease in exercise-induced cortisol.
Betaine, in comparison to Taurine, has also been shown to function as an organic osmolyte, maintaining cellular fluid balance. Moreover, Betaine has been shown to elicit a protective effect against heatinduced denaturation of citric synthase. Given that citric synthase is a critical mediator of whole-body energy production, preventing its destruction is sure to promote massive energy gains.

CREATINE ABSORPTION COMPLEX
CinnulinPF – Multi-patented Creatine Transport Activator
The Absorption Complex starts with CinnulinPF, the only patented ingredient standardized for doubly linked Type-A Polymers. Science confirms this product’s ability to affect glucose transport through insulin signaling mechanisms. Combined with Creatine in the body, this patented ingredient can improve the level of absorption specific to muscle tissue.
Prickly Pear Extract (Opuntia phaeacantha), has a well-documented insulinogenic effect. Insulinogenics have the ability to reduce blood sugar and increase the uptake of nutrients such as Creatine without the presence of sugars, (typically required to assist in the absorption of Creatine.)
Bitter Melon Extract (Momordica charantia) affects insulin receptors by helping to maintain a healthy normal level of function. Scientists have recently discovered a functional unit found in bitter melon extract that physically binds to insulin receptors and stimulates their activity, facilitating enhanced glucose uptake.
The result – a complex of potent ingredients designed to make CVOL unmatched in its ability to drive the effectiveness of patented, clinically tested ingredients to a completely new level.
