CH40 is undisputedly the number one intra workout nutrition supplement on the market; Raws Supps have left no stone unturned in designing it. Once you’re “on CH40” you literally feel stronger set-after-set… your only issue will be that you won’t have time to train as long as you want!!
CH40 contains PeptoPro® (casein hydrolysate) the fastest available source of protein for muscle protein synthesis. PeptoPro® is a pre-digested protein that is completely water soluble and contains more than 60% unique hypo-allergenic di- and tri peptides. These peptides are absorbed much faster than any intact protein or even single amino acids. These super-fast acting peptides make your muscles even more responsive to protein. Your body wastes no time digesting the proteins so they can be transported straight to the working muscles to start the recovery and growth process, even before your workout has ended.
Each serving of CH40 has the optimal dose of L-leucine to facilitate maximum protein synthesis. Protein synthesis cannot occur without the presence of L-leucine.
Most of the anabolic effects of protein are actually the result of leucine. Only slight elevations in all of the other essential amino acids are necessary for leucine to spark (and maintain) increases in muscle protein synthesis.
Leucine is the amino-acid "trigger" by which skeletal muscle accrues protein. Specifically, the muscle-building effects of leucine are due to a cascade of cellular reactions including the activation of the mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), upregulation of ribosomal protein S6 kinase (S6K1) activity, enhancement of eukaryotic initiation factor-4E binding protein (eIF4E-BP1) phosphorylation, and the association of eukaryotic initiation factor (eIF)4E with eIF4G.
Every time you consume a dose of CH40 you are flicking the muscle-building switch! This makes CH40 an ideal choice for anyone using protein pulsing or intermittent fasting protocols.
CH40 contains the most soluble and bioavailable form of creatine – creatine pyruvate. Bioavailability studies on creatine pyruvate show that it increases plasma creatine levels at a greater rate compared to other forms of creatine. Studies on the effect of creatine pyruvate on training performance demonstrate that it enables participants to maintain output on repeat anaerobic and aerobic efforts at a higher level than other forms of creatine. CH40 users report significant strength gains and this is partly due to creatine pyruvate.
The performance enhancing effects of Beta alanine and Citrulline malate are well documented and they seem to be included in every pre workout and intra workout product on the market now. The only issue is many brands use these in token amounts as box ticking exercise for the label. CH40 contains the optimal amount of both to maintain performance and recovery levels throughout the toughest training programs. Beta alanine improves repeat anaerobic performance by increasing muscle carnosine levels which acts as a buffer against lactic acid created by the working muscles. Citrulline malate increases blood flow to the muscles which increases pumps and improves nutrient delivery and recovery. Experiments show that Citrulline malate improves strength training and aerobic performance, meaning more reps and greater endurance, and reduces muscle soreness levels in participants 24 and 48 hours post exercise; Hence why people are able to train hard day-after-day ‘on CH40’.
The latest addition to this super-engineered formula was L-glycine. L-glycine is added in higher amounts than naturally found in protein sources because of the positive effect it has on the other components of CH40 and its ability to increase uptake of the nutrients into the working muscle cells. L-glycine on its own is vital for production of brain neurotransmitters which improve CNS function and excitation during exercise and increase recovery by improving sleep. Glycine is also the primary component of collagen, the non-contractile connective tissue that makes up most of your skin, tendons, and ligaments leading to increased strength and recovery of tendon tissue after intense training. L-glycine also acts as a glucogenic amino acid meaning it helps regulate blood sugar levels and increases uptake of glucose into the muscles and liver.
You can only train as hard as your recovery allows you to… CH40 is tried and tested in the trenches producing some unbelievable results in its short time on the market.
CH40 is great for ‘hard gainers’ because it allows you to train at the intensities needed to induce serious muscle hypertrophy. A great example of this was with previously hard gainer Adam Crane. Have a look at Adam’s progress pictures below. Adam went from being a skinny footballer to a physique any natural trainer would be proud of.
“I’ve used CH40 for the last 6 months of my training. I have definitely had my best gains since using CH40 during my workouts. It’s crazy but sometimes I leave the gym after a tough session and feel like I want to carry on and do some more sets. CH40 is a great option for gym goers who really want to push themselves every day.”
The supplementation of CH40 into your workout nutrition protocol will lead to serious hypertrophy because it enables you to train at significantly higher intensities day-after-day. CH40 combines the positive synergistic effects of all its contents and provides them to you at a much better price than you could get them individually too. Better still if you ‘like’ and share this article you will be in with the chance to win a free CH40 and Raw Supps Nalgene shaker bottle.
