DAM’D contains a non-proprietary pre-workout blend that contains several ingredients to support recovery from training.
5,000 mg of D-Ribose
Bioenergy Ribose is a natural, functional beverage ingredient that helps accelerate energy recovery, reduce muscle stiffness and provide greater endurance. Bioenergy Ribose is safe, clinically proven to be effective, and is protected by a family of patents covering all known uses of ribose in nutrition. Although Bioenergy Ribose is a five-carbon monosaccharide, it does not raise blood sugar, making it a good carbohydrate to use in food and beverage formulation.
Bioenergy Ribose is unique in this metabolic role. No other compound can replace ribose in the important job of regulating the metabolic processes involved in synthesizing purines and pyrimidines. And without these vital structural components, our bodies would quickly run out of energy, could not make proteins and our cells would lose the ability to replicate. Energy recovery and tissue repair are slower in heart and muscle cells, especially after overwork or exercise. Ribose drives the process that replenishes ATP and other energy components in these cells.
Ribose is made in our bodies’ cells from glucose, but this process is slow in heart and muscle tissue. Although Ribose is present in all living matter, only a small amount can be ingested through the diet. In many U.S. and European clinical studies, providing supplemental Bioenergy Ribose has been shown to significantly improve endurance during strenuous exercise, shorten recovery time, reduce cramping and soreness, and reduce fatigue in people suffering from energy depletion. View a sampling of these clinical studies.
500 mg of Acetyl L-Carnitine
Great amino acid to use for recovery.
100 mg of DMG N,N-Dimethylglycine
Dimethylglycine (DMG) is a nutrient which is found in the cells of both plants and animals. The human body produces DMG in very small amounts. Supplementing the diet with higher levels of DMG greatly improves the nutritional environment of the cell. Dimethylglycine has been found effective in supporting immune system function and better utilization of oxygen at the cellular level.* FoodScience of Vermont has been issued three U.S. Patents for N,Ndimethylglycine’s value and use in improving immunity and for benefiting cellular processes.* DMG reduces lactic acid build up in the muscle thereby shortening recovery time after strenuous exercise and improving endurance.*
30 mg of Co Q10
I discuss extensively the benefits of Co Q 10 in this article.
How To Use
Take DAM’D 60 minutes prior to a workout. You can combine for more energy with Oatmuscle.
Pre Workout Stack could be something like this
1 serving of DAM’D
1 serving of Advanced BCAA supplement
1 serving of Tectanic Red Beet Root Powder
Post Workout Stack
1 serving of Oatmuscle
2 tbs of Peptopro
1 serving of Creapure
And of course, you’d want to blend in fresh vegetables like kale, spinach, beets, and other veggies. Toss in some fruits. I like the darker fruits.
