So what is in Body Octane and what does it do?
Used and proven effective for over 20 years in Europe as a treatment for fatigue and dementia, Citrulline Malate (CM) has made its way into the world of athletic performance thanks to the research and development team at MAN Sports Products IncTM. This unique combination of the amino acid Citrulline and the organic salt Malate offers athletes with a new choice in improving performance and recovery. As an intermediate in the Urea Cycle, Citrulline aids in the removal of endotoxins such as lactic acid and ammonia1. These endotoxins are produced through intense physical activity, protein metabolism, and catabolic states. Endotoxins damage living cells and wreak havoc on athletic performance2.
Researches also point to Citrulline as possibly a greater alternative to Arginine for enhancing plasma Arginine levels because of Citrullines effects on endogenous Arginine synthesis3-meaning that CM may be a superior alternative to Arginine for regulating Nitric Oxide production, natural growth hormone release, insulin and creatine production. And that's not all, it has also been discovered that supplementing CM at a dose as low as 6 grams a day significantly reduced muscle fatigue, increased ATP production by 34%, and caused a 20% increase in Phosphocreatine recovery after exercise4. What this means is that Citrulline Malate improved aerobic metabolism, cellular energy production, and promoted muscular recovery. When all's said and done athletes using Citrulline Malate will have more energy to train better and harder and will recover faster from their training sessions.
Although referred to as an amino acid, L-Carnitine is a natural nutrient belonging to the B-Vitamin family (BT). It is mainly stored in skeletal muscle and the heart and can be synthesized naturally in the body. However under certain physiological conditions the body may not produce sufficient levels of Carnitine. L-Carnitine's main function inside the body is to transport long chain fatty acids into the mitochondria (furnace of the cell), where fats can be broken down and converted to energy. As a result, L-Carnitine is necessary for the production of energy from fat5. Past studies have revealed the effectiveness of L-Carnitine in relevance to exercise performance, cardiovascular health, weight management, and much more...
Athletes have long favored L-Carnitine supplementation for its ability to increase VO2 max6, 7, which is the highest volume of oxygen a person can consume during exercise. What's more, L-Carnitine supplementation reduces lactic acid buildup and spares glycogen and as a result delays fatigue8. And that's not all.
Enter L-Carnitine-L-Tartrate (LCLT). This new age Carnitine compound has just recently been discovered to have some fascinating recuperation properties. More specifically, research on LCLT at a dose of 2 grams a day was shown to reduce the amount of muscle disruption after weight training9. Circulating markers of muscle damage after exercise lowered, energy substrate breakdown during and after exercise lowered and muscle soreness after exercise was decreased from those who supplemented with LCLT9. Since exercise depletes Carnitine concentrations in the blood cells, the result is less than optimal blood flow and oxygen supply to muscles. The positive results from LCLT administration are believed to be a result of enhanced oxygen supply to the muscle by means of increased blood flow. In addition to that, it appears that LCLT may support protein synthesis and anabolic response to exercise by protecting anabolic receptors from excessive damage as a result of resistant exercise10.
In simple terms, the use of LCLT not only will enhance performance and prevent fatigue, but more importantly LCLT promotes recovery.
Muscle Carnosine Boosters Beta Alanine & Histidine:
Carnosine (beta-alanyl-L-histidine) is a naturally-occurring dipeptide discovered in Russia in 1900 and is made up of amino acids Beta-Alanine and L-Histidine. Carnosine is found in skeletal muscle, heart and brain. Since much of the research with carnosine was performed in Russia, it has been largely unavailable to the Western World until just recently. Carnosine is now becoming more and more recognized for its remarkable potential as a highly effective vitality nutrient... But there's a lot more!
Antioxidant, buffering, free radical scavenging and even neurotransmitter properties are attributed to Carnosine. Carnosine is also found primarily in type II muscle fibres11,12. These are the 'fast-twitch' fibres that are important for explosive movements such as sprinting and weight training. Increasing muscle Carnosine concentrations are important to athletes because Carnosine increases intramuscular hydrogen ion (H+) buffering capacity. And the production of H+ is the result of energy release, leading to a burning sensation and muscle fatigue. Basically what this means is that Carnosine increases your ability to work harder by preventing your muscle from becoming too acidic during times of stress by picking up Hydrogen ions. More Carnosine in muscle means you can keep muscle acid in check and train harder and longer.13
So why not start mega dosing Carnosine? Dietary intake of Carnosine gets broken down into the amino acids Beta-Alanine and Histidine and in turn gets resynthesized into Carnosine in the muscle. Carnosine biosynthesis is dependent on availability of Beta-Alanine and L-Histidine. If truth be told, a deficiency in L-Histidine reduces muscle Carnosine levels, while supplementation with it increases Carnosine levels14, 15, 16. Another study done on Beta-Alanine and L-Histidine for 30 days increased muscle Carnosine by 13%17!
The take home message is this. Oral supplementation of Carnosine can lead to increased concentrations of Carnosine. Supplementation with Beta-Alanine and L-Histidine may prove to be a more effective way for getting the benefits of elevated levels of Carnosine. And with these elevated levels of Carnosine, increased athletic performance, and a great deal more is the result.

I will buy this product againThis is easy to take. Mixes well and tastes good. If I drink right before I work out it helps my stamina throughout the workout and must have electrolytes because keeps me from being thirsty which is important to me when I run and spin because II usually have to drink way too much water. My body feels less fatigued and less stressed during my workout. It's stim free so doesn't keep you wake or wi
Best caffeine free pre work out everThis is the best caffeine pre work out supp there is i usually work out at night before i go to bed i am caffeine sensitive so this is a good alternative it also helps delay (doms) which stands for delayed onset muscle soreness which allows you to train harder for longer.
