List of Ingredients
Phellodendron bark and Crape Mertle.
The literature online about Anabolic-Pump consistently takes about GLUT4. This amazing hormone is supposed to unlock the true muscle building potential bodybuilders are looking for. Taking a closer look at GLUT4, scientifically known as glucose transporter type 4, it seems that the notation by USP Labs as a hormone is incorrect. GLUT4 is a protein that is found in fat and striated muscle tissue in the body. The protein is expressed during contraction of the muscle which makes the heart a perfect place for GLUT4 to be located.
There is very little information on this protein and its effect in the body other than transporting glucose. As a matter of fact, there are no scientific studies offered by USP or found online to support using a GLUT4 supplement to build muscle.
Phellodendron is a tree that produces phyto nutrients in the bark that have recently been noticed by the supplement industry. One of the nutrients works as a vasodilator (opens veins wider) which could be the reason this ingredient is included. The same bark, however, contains a natural immune suppressant which could have a negative effect on the body.
Crape Mertle, also known as Banaba in the weight loss market, is a natural appetite suppressant. Small studies have been completed using Banaba as a means of controlling glucose in Type 2 diabetics. The study revealed good results, but appetite suppression has not been studied.
One bottle of Anabolic-Pump retails for $64.95. One capsule can be taken up to three times a day, but there is no reference to how many capsules are in each bottle. Free shipping is offered on orders over $250.
