1.What Is It?
VASO6 is a patented gallate-enhanced oligomer derived from grape seed or green tea extracts. Before you roll your eyes at green tea extract this isnt like anything youve seen before. VASO6 is brought to us by the ingredient kings, Compound Solutions. VASO6 has been created using only the most active fractions from green tea and grape seed extracts. Specifically, the fractions involved in enhancing blood flow around the body.
We will get a bit technical here breaking down VASO6 but its because we need to in order to better understand things later. VASO6 is made up of oligomers; an oligomer is a special type of molecular complex which can be made up of a few unique molecules that are able to bond together due to being identical molecules. VASO6 uses only the most effective oligomers for stimulating nitric oxide that is found in grape seed and green tea extracts. The use of gallic acid, to make the oligomers gallate-enhanced, dramatically enhances the biological availability and activity of these oligomers. VASO6 is truly like no other grape seed or green tea extract on the market.
2.What Does It Do?
The specific fractions in VASO6 are designed to enhance blood flow around the body. VASO6 achieves this enhanced blood flow by increasing Nitric Oxide (NO) levels. But nitric oxide boosters are nothing new the supplement world. Arginine, Citrulline, Agmatine & Nitrates have been used for years in products designed to increase NO.
Typical NO increasing formulas, using those ingredients mentioned above, results in increased blood flow with more open blood vessels from increased NO levels. The problem is, that your heart is pumping more blood because its working harder to push blood through veins that havent fully relaxed. Therefore causing more strain, wear and tear on some of the most important and vital muscles in the body.
This is where VASO6 separates itself from your typical NO boosting ingredients, making your body and, in particular, your cardiovascular system work smarter, not harder. VASO6 improves the bioavailability of NO by inhibiting the expression and secretion of a peptide hormone responsible for vasoconstriction and increased blood pressure called endothelin-1 (ET-1). Through inhibiting ET-1, VASO6 goes well beyond your typical NO boosting ingredient by minimising the strain on our heart and cardiovascular system.
The oligomers used to make VASO6 are some of the most bioactive compounds at causing the highest level of Endothelium-Dependent Relaxation (EDR). This EDR is achieved by VASO6 simultaneously releasing endothelial nitric oxide while increasing levels of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) in muscle cells which result in this incredible effect of increasing blood flow through vasodilation while lowering blood pressure. This is a very unique and highly beneficial function of VASO6.
Increased levels of Nitric Oxide (NO) provide a list of performance and general health benefits such as:
- Improved ATP production
- Improved explosive energy and power
- Improved endurance
- Improved workout duration
- Improved oxygen & nutrient delivery to working muscles
- Improved removal of metabolic by-products
- Improved oxygen delivery to the brain
- Improved mental performance
- Improved body temperature regulation
- Protection of low-density lipoproteins (LDL)
- Reduced chances of hazardous blood clots
- Protection against early phases of atherogenesis
As you can see, there’s a lot more to nitric oxide than just muscle pumps and increased vascularity.
3.How Much Do I Need To Take?
300 milligrams, easy as that. 300 mgs is the dose used in all studies of VASO6 and that is the dose that 90% of formulas using VASO6 have opted for. However, as with all ingredients, people will always try more and use more to see if the benefits increase.
There are products that are using 600 mg dosages or multiple products that are suggested to be stacked together each with 300 mg doses. The studies are not there to back up doses higher than 300 mgs but we can say, from personal experience, 600 & 900 mgs pre-workout delivers a very impressive pump!
4.When Do I Take It?
VASO6 has been designed to be taken before any type of exercise, training, sport or any time where you require improved physical performance. Pre-workouts, pump & performance formulas are where you will find VASO6 most commonly being used with them designed to be taken before training/ exercise.
5.How Long Does It Take To Work?
VASO6 works from the very first dose. This is one of the best benefits of VASO6 over other nitric oxide increasing ingredients that require consistent long term consumption to build their effects. VASO6s infamous vasodilation effects, for the study mentioned above, were after a single dose of 300 mgs. In the long run, the benefits of VASO6 will continue with the long term benefits of increased nitric oxide levels being able to reach full potential.
