ANS Performance #BigMuscle Stack

Ritual Pre-Workout

Beta-Alanine: A non-essential amino acid, beta-alanine combines with the amino acid histidine to form carnosine. In muscle cells carnosine buffers against the hydronium ions and lactic acid which form during exercise and can lead to muscle fatigue. Supplementation with beta-alanine can improve strength, endurance and enhance recovery. Each scoop of RITUAL™ contains 1.6g of beta-alanine.

Citrulline: The 'pump' amino acid, L-Citrulline has been clinically researched to enhance nitric oxide levels better than arginine. Studies suggest that citrulline increases the rate of ATP synthesis during exercise and greater phosphocreatine recovery after exercise. Citrulline also reduces lactic acid and ammonia levels, which leads to better muscle performance and increased endurance.

Creapure®: The purest available Creatine monohydrate. Creatine is critical to the energy replenishment cycle of muscle. Regular use of creatine can enhance power, endurance and energy levels while exercising allowing you to train harder longer and amplify results.

Trimethylglycine: Also known as betaine anhydrous, this amino acid analogue helps reduce homocysteine levels in the body and stimulates production of creatine in muscle cells. TMG can act as a methyl donor and prevent dehydration of cells. As a supplement TMG can also amplify power output and training volume.

AgmaPure™: This patented form of 'green' agmatine sulfate is not chemically synthesized, rather derived by fermentation, making it the highest purity material available. Agmatine has several functions in the body including: amplifying nitric oxide production, stimulating the release of catecholamines, increasing GnRH levels and even potentially testosterone levels.

Xanthaurine: The active ingredient from Styphnolobium japonicum is an incredibly potent antioxidant. Its effects have been extensively studied for the promotion of enhanced endurance. Less known however is its powerful ability to amplify nitric oxide levels 300% acutely after ingestion, making it core to the 'pump' properties of RITUAL™.


N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine: the highly soluble form of the amino acid L-Tyrosine, and an important precursor in the production of epinephrine, dopamine and norepinephrine. These hormones contribute to elevated energy, mood and mental alertness.

DN1000™: This trademarked form of Dendrobium nobile extract is concentrated 1000%. Traditionally dendrobium is used for its antioxidant and immunomodulatory properties, and has been studied for its ability to enhance the body's response to disease.

Caffeine: Caffeine is a powerful mental stimulant. It combats fatigue and can promote increase alertness and energy levels.

PEA (Phenylethylamine): PEA is a monoamine alkaloid that can improved mood, mental acuity, energy and focus. Although relatively short-lived, when combined with and MAO inhibitor, the effects can be prolonged.

Hordenine: This stimulant doubles as a potent MAO inhibitor and promotes the extended effects of monoamine compoounds.

Higenamine (Norcoclaurine): Naturally occuring in plants like Nelumbo nucifera, higenamine (or norcoclaurine) is a powerful bioactive alkaloid that acts as a beta-adrenergic receptor agonist, and can trigger an elevated thermogenic and anabolic response.

AstraGin™: This patented combination of Astralagus and Panax notoginseng amplifies the absorption of amino acids and vitamins. This maximizes the impact of the full-dosed RITUAL™ formulation.

Real Science Behind Clinically Proven Muscle Pumps & Endurance

DILATE is undoubtedly the most advanced nitric oxide plasma and muscle volumizing supplement even developed. The marriage between cutting edge glycerin delivery technology and hardcore ingredient science is personified is every concentrated dose. DILATE will increase definition, muscle size, vascularity, strength and endurance to heights previously unattainable. Get ready for the biggest pump of your life!
DILATE enhances nitric oxide levels using 3 different mechanisms that effectively elevate nitric oxide (NO) both acutely as well as over many hours:
  1. DILATE increases plasma arginine levels with citrulline malate, leading to conversion via the NOS pathway to NO.
  2. DILATE generates a 300% nitric oxide increase with a human clinical dose of quercetin.
  3. DILATE utilizes the nitrate pathway with our potent beet root extract to generate nitric oxide.
However it doesn't stop there. DILATE fills the relaxed blood vessels with volumized plasma using the osmotic power of the glycerin delivery system. Water is pulled into the blood and muscle cells delivering an incomparable pump and vital nutrients along with it. Each 4 capsule dose of DILATE delivers 2 grams of glycerin!

Real Powerful Ingredients

Liquid Glycerin (pharmaceutical grade)
Acts an osmotic agent and pulls water into plasma and cells. Promotes muscle fullness and prevents dehydration at a cellular level, thereby enhancing cellular endurance and preventing fatigue. This is not the same ingredient as glycerol monostearate – where glycerin is bound to the fatty acid stearic acid – this is the ultra-pure, highly soluble form that also functions as a carrier of the remainder of the ingredient system partitioning the ingredients directly into plasma and muscle cells.

Citrulline Malate
This powerful ingredient provides multiple benefits. It improves both aerobic and anaerobic performance capacity by influencing lactic acid metabolism and reducing fatigue. Citrulline also increases plasma arginine levels more effectively than arginine itself – thereby providing the key substrate for nitric oxide generation via nitric oxide synthase (NOS).

A potent antioxidant, with numerous studies demonstrating improved athletic performance, endurance, VO2 max as well as rapid nitric oxide production; quercetin has been clinically validated to increase baseline nitric oxide levels by 300% with a 200mg dose within 30 minutes of administration.

Beta vulgaris extract
Our custom extract of beet root, delivers enhanced levels of naturally occurring nitrates. Beet root juice has been extensively studied for its endurance enhancing properties due to nitrate content, which converts to nitric oxide in the body.

Yohimbe bark extract
The alkaloids found in yohimbe bark can act as natural aphrodisiacs, improving mood and focus. But they also increase blood flow augmenting the effects of DILATE, at the same time as increasing energy production and potentially aiding fat loss.

A true blood vessel 'dilator', vinpocetine acts primarily in the brain, increasing blood flow, improving oxygen utilization and strengthening the mind-muscle connection while you work out.

Vitamin C
Vitamin C acts as a potent radical scavenging antioxidant, preventing nitrate tolerance. It also greatly enhances NOS activity, therefore increasing the rate of nitric oxide production.

B Vitamins
The B vitamins enhance the body's natural metabolism, cellular energy generation and DNA repair.

Real Powerful Ingredients

Alchemilla vulgaris extract (Frauenmantle)
Alchemilla vulgaris has been used to treat obesity, gastrointestinal pain and inflammation. The extract contains several tannins reported to increase metabolic rate in cold environments and flavonoids reported to regulate digestive enzymes and have cardioprotective effects.

Olea europaea extract (Wild Olive)
Olive leaves can inhibit glucose absorption and possess hypoglycemic, hypotensive-diuretic and antioxidant properties; as a result olive leaves reduce fat load and circulatory fat levels.

Cuminum cyminum extract (Komijn)
Cumin improves glucose utilization, reduces raised blood sugar and promotes digestion by stimulating gastrointestinal mucosa and pancreatic digestive enzymes.

Mentha longifolia extract (Wild Mint)
Mint reduces appetite and improves digestion by relieving digestive symptoms such as pain, spasm, gas and dyspepsia. It relaxes the stomach and increases gastric emptying along with the passage of food through the digestive system.

L-Theanineis a glutamic acid analog. Able to cross the blood-brain barrier, L-theanine has psychoactive properties; it's been shown to reduce mental and physical stress and improve cognition and mood in a synergistic manner with caffeine.

Coffea arabica extract (50% chlorogenic acids)
Dietary polyphenols, like chlorogenic acid found in Green Coffee extract, have biological effects in the small intestine that alter patterns of glucose uptake. Chlorogenic acid has been shown to inhibit glucose-6-phosphate (Glc-6-Pase) activity. Glc-6-Pase is an enzyme that has a key role in regulating glucose metabolism.

Hordenine has been known as a central nervous stimulant that helps to aid in the effects of weight loss. It assists in the release of fat cells for energy and helps the process of slowing down food digestion, which in turn can make you feel fuller longer.

Evodia rutaecarpa extract (Std. to Evodiamine)
This herbal extract is a remarkable stimulant that has demonstrated positive energy and diuretic characteristics. It has the unique ability to significantly elevate the production of body heat and increase resting core temperature.This thermogenic effect can lead to an increase in the calories and fat that gets burned for energy.
