Ape Sh*t Cutz is a thermogenic pre workout scientifically formulated to support increased athletic performance, endurance, and calorie burning. We’ve taken the best elements from our best-selling, high energy pre workout Ape Sh*t and added in prominent weight loss support agents to create the ultimate fat-burning pre workout supplement.
APE SH*T CUTZ INGREDIENTS
Beta alanine is a prominent endurance support supplement known to support stamina and resistance to fatigue. It does so by increasing concentrations of a powerful intracellular buffer known as carnosine.
With higher levels of carnosine, skeletal muscle is better able to buffer acidic (H+) ions that accumulate during repeated muscle contractions. This enables muscles to last longer before succumbing to fatigue, promoting greater stamina, strength, and endurance.
Choline is an essential nutrient that plays a key role in cognitive development, muscle movement, and the structure of cell membranes. It also serves as a building block for the “learning transmitter”, acetylcholine, which is well-known to impact focus, learning, memory, and the “mind-muscle connection.”
Supplementing with choline helps support acetylcholine production in the body promoting greater focus and a stronger mind-muscle connection during training.
Caffeine is great for increasing mental energy, focus, and concentration. It’s also useful for supporting weight loss due to the facts that caffeine has been noted in various research trials to help:
> Enhance fatty acid oxidation
> Increase lipolysis via cyclic AMP
> Boost metabolic rate
> Suppresse appetite
This consummate pre workout stimulant also helps improve exercise performance by reducing perceived exertion, which may help athletes to train longer, banging out more reps and burning more calories.
Ape Sh*t Cutz utilizes natural caffeine from green tea to supply smooth, long-lasting energy without the jitters, edginess or crash.
Note: Each full serving (2 scoops) of Ape Sh*t Cutz supplies a total of 300mg caffeine from green tea.
Garcinia cambogia is a small, sour-tasting, pumpkin-shaped fruit that is rich in hydroxycitric acid (HCA).
Research suggests that garcinia cambogia may help decrease oxidative stress, suppress appetite, and support weight loss efforts.
Dandelion is a commonly used all-natural diuretic included to help shed unwanted water weight that tends to accumulate in the body. Research has shown that dandelion may increase urine output, as well as the frequency of urination, for up to 5 hours!
Additional studies also suggest dandelion may enhance glucose uptake in skeletal muscle, promoting greater utilization and storage of carbohydrates.
Gamma-Butyrobetaine HCl (GBB)
Gamma-butyrobetaine (GBB) acts as a carnitine precursor.
It is converted to carnitive via the enzyme Gamma-butyrobetaine dioxygenase (BBD). Gamma-butyrobetaine dioxygenase is an oxidoreductase enzyme that mediates conversion of GBB to carnitine through the movement of electrons.
Why is more carnitine beneficial?
Carnitine is the molecule in the body that facilitates transportation of fatty acids into the mitochondria for beta-oxidation, a.k.a. “fat burning”. Greater carnitine availability allows for more fatty acids to be shuttled into the mitochondria to burn as fuel.
Be forewarned that GBB is known to have a prominent thermogenic effect in the body, so expect to feel the heat with Ape Sh*t Cutz!
Yohimbine Bark Extract
Yohimbine is a bioactive compound found within the bark of the African tree, Pausinystalia johimbe. It has been noted to function as a powerful CNS stimulant that antagonizes alpha-2-adrenergic receptors in the body, which helps increase energy and focus while also supporting fat burning.
Yohimbine has also been noted to help suppress appetite, helping individuals combat those notorious hunger pangs that arise during diets.
