What You Should Know
Force Factor, a sport nutrition product supposedly invented by Harvard competitive rowers, uses amino acids as the basis of its technology. According to the manufactures, these amino acids increase energy and endurance and aid in weight loss. This process is supposedly achieved through raising the amount of Nitric Oxide in an individual’s body.
List of Ingredients
Some of the main ingredients in Force Factor include 3x Nitric Oxide Booster, AKG, A AKIC and L Arginine, and L-citrulline. Three of the most active ingredients are Nitric Oxide, Arginine, and L-citrulline.
Nitric Oxide, naturally found in your body, helps your body properly communicate with all its different parts. By raising the amount of Nitric Oxide in the body, exercisers may increase their bodies ability to communicate itself and therefore they may find their workouts more successful.
Argenine, not a naturally occurring substance within the human body, may help strengthen immunity, remove toxins from the body, regulate sodium levels, assimilate protein properly, and increase metabolism.
L-citrulline, an amino acid, supposedly shortens the recovery times after workouts, helps increase energy, removes ammonia from the body, and benefits the liver.
Force Factor may, as the company claims, truly improve workouts. However, as with many workout and weight loss supplements, it may owe its popularity to a few isolated successes and not because it truly lives up to its claims. Even if the supplement does assist in muscle gain and fat loss, the possible side effects could negate this positive. Although the company claims it has no side effects, any substance introduced into the body will have an effect on it. The more unnatural the substance, the more likely the effect will be bad. Fitness fanatics and those wanting to lose weight should focus on more sensible methods such as following a healthful eating plan and exercising consistently. Those still interested in Force Factor should do their own research in order to make an informed opinion before buying.
