List of Ingredients
Gakic Pro Series Blend: Glycine, L-Arginine, Alpha-Ketoisocaproic Acid Calcium and Caffeine Anhydrous.
The main ingredient in Gakic is caffeine. With every 8 capsule serving, the user consumes 300 mg of caffeine. The average over the counter supplement energy supplement, like Vivarin, contains 200 mg of caffeine per serving. This is more than enough caffeine to keep the user awake for many hours. Consuming 300 mg of caffeine per serving is likely to cause negative side effects, including shakes, nervousness, nausea and vomiting, in some cases. Dieters and bodybuilders who are sensitive to caffeine should not take this supplement. It will cause a significant increase in heart rate and blood pressure that could lead to hospitalization. Taking Gakic for a prolonged period could cause addiction to caffeine. Caffeine addiction causes the body to need large amounts of caffeine to prevent withdrawal. Withdrawal from caffeine addiction can cause headaches and fatigue.
Glycine is an amino acid commonly found in protein. When a bodybuilder takes a protein shake before a workout, they are consuming Glycine. Additional Glycine may not increase strength or workout performance.
L-Arginine is another amino acid that has antioxidant properties. It helps fight off free radical damage common during intense workouts. The body makes L-Arginine. Supplementation is typically only needed during times of injury and burn recovery.
Gakic sells for $57 per bottle from GNC. If a consumer has a Gold Card from GNC, the price will be lower.
