You won't find ineffective doses of any ingredients in Bucked Up because they know that you don't want to pay for a supplement that isn't going to work.

Non-proprietary Blend Pre-Workout
Bucked Up by DAS Labs is a game changing pre-workout formula featuring non proprietary blend. Non-proprietary refers to full disclosure of every ingredient including their exact amounts. Proprietary mean a blend of listed ingredients leaving out their exact amounts.
Why Should you choose a non-proprietary blend pre-workout?
There are countless products on the market that tout "proprietary" as if that sets itself apart from the competitors. Proprietary can have its benefits (it helps to keep a company formula private). A proprietary blend will list the ingredients, but will not give you the actual dosage of each listed ingredient. FDA requires dietary ingredients in a proprietary blend be listed in order of predominance weight. First listed is the most abundant and the last listed is least abundant.
Most pre-workout supplements undercut the expensive ingredients and pump up the less expensive ingredients. This results in an ineffective pre-workout These companies will then use fancy marketing tactics and hire well-known athletes to back their products. Why? It works (for them). And consumers continue to fall for it. You get a less effective but cheaper product.
Non Proprietary pre-workout formulas will list each and every ingredient along with their amounts per serving. Full disclosure. This way you know what you are putting in your body. Before you spend your hard-earned money on pre-workout, make sure the ingredients have been proven by scientific research. Bucked Up by DAS Labs is a non proprietary blend pre-workout formula containing scientifically researched ingredients.
L-Citrulline is a key ingredient to Bucked Up pre workout which contains a full 6 grams of bioavailable L-Citrulline. L-ctirulline is an amino acid which actually turns into L-arginine in the kidneys after supplemenation. In fact, because of this, it is more effective at increasing L-arginine levels in your body than L-arginine itself! So, what does that mean for you? Along with its ability to increase blood flow, it has been proven to increase exercise capacity and reduce muscle fatigue.
Creative Concept Labs want you to think of your muscle as a deflated tire, and your blood as the air that's needed to inflate that tire. If they want to drive anywhere they'll need to pump air into the tire, and likewise if they want performance from their muscle, they need to drive blood into that muscle. The higher the performance, the more they'll need. That blood carries precious oxygen & nutrients that are vital to the function of that muscle. Sure, you could pump a little air in there, just enough to get by, using a tiny little bike pump, but they don't want to be a bike, they want to be a Formula 1 car, right? When a race car pulls into a pit stop there's not a bike pump anywhere to be found, they are using a high pressured air pump to fill those tires up to the maximum PSI, for maximum performance. L-Citrulline is the tool that will take you to maximum performance, giving you a muscle so oxygen rich, so well nourished, so full, you'll be able to accomplish goals you always thought were out of your grasp.
There are many aspects that go into recovery: rest, nutrition, genetics, age, etc. Something that is often overlooked is glucose uptake. We grow up hearing things like "Sugar is the devil!" & "My brother is living on the streets as a sugar addict." However, this is only half true. Sugar is vital for the growth and recovery of muscle. Taken post workout sugar refeeds your muscle, and prevents the cannibalism of your own body. Where people get in trouble is consuming more sugar than they need, and it is therefore stored. Think of it as trying to fill up a tank of gas when it's already full. The excess gas will spill out. It's the same principle; only instead of spilling out, their body simply stores it in the form of a new tank for future fuel. Pumping more fuel into your body than your body can burn off, will plain and simply, make you fat. L-Citrulline plays a vital role in sugar uptake. When they maximize sugar uptake into their muscles they may be less likely to store it & convert it into fat , more likely to use it for fuel, and most importantly, it may lead to greater muscle recovery. Leading to greater, overall body composition.
Aside from looking fabulous, really fit people have something in common, ATP regeneration. (Andenosine Triphosphate Regeneration) ATP is the energy source inside the cell causing it to fire. When their cells are firing they are burning through their ATP. The more intense the firing, the more ATP they take up. You can gauge your ATP by running at full sprint. You'll blast through your ATP, and start to slow down & when you eventually run out, you'll have to come to a rest. You run out of juice, and need a recharge. While resting, your ATP may begin to regenerate. The good news is they can increase the rate ATP regenerates in their body. Obviously the faster the better. ATP is converted from sugar, fat and amino acids in the mitochondria of the cell; firing like a combustion engine. The better the fuel, the better the engine runs. Scientists believe that a higher quality amino like L-Citrulline may be the best fuel, and may produce the best performance.
Endurance & Detox
99% of the time they think of endurance in relation to a workout, but they believe that endurance needs to extend well beyond your workouts. Sure you have the power to smash a workout, but do you get fatigued at work? Do you play with your kids when you get home? Can you do all your chores around the house? Could you fight a bear? You know, just accomplishing the regular every day things you need to do. Which at the DAS Labs office happens to be the occasional bear fight. (Don't tell PETA).
Through physical exertion they build up lactic acid. Once lactic acid gets too high it may cause cramping, nausea, dehydration, fatigue, confusion, sleepiness, impaired breathing, and even acute liver failure. However, thanks to science power, many leading experts believe that since L-Citrulline plays such a vital part in the urea process, and has been show to produce more nitric oxide & L-Arganine than even the amino acid, L-Arganine, that it may lead to hyper levels of lactic acid flushing, and assist the liver in it's functions. Creative Concept Labs need to take care of their livers, they only get one of them. Not to mention that the liver is vital in weight management & body composition. Creative Concept Labs're not saying L-Citrulline will give you a super liver, and you can go out and party like a rock star every night, but maybe like it's 1999 every once and a while.
Creatine Free Pre Workouts
While creatine is a popular work-out supplement that has been proven safe and effective for use, they felt it was important to keep Bucked Up creatine-free. Most pre workout and other supplements on the market don't offer the proper dosage of creatine. It has also been suggested that creatine provides the best results when taken post-workout as opposed to prior when taking pre workout.
For most bodybuilders—and really anyone wanting to bulk up their physique—creatine has become a part of their daily supplement routine. While there are definitely benefits to taking creatine, many of these benefits are negated when a person already has a diet high in protein, specifically animal proteins. It has also been suggested that creatine does not offer the same bulking benefits as a person gets older—it is most beneficial for a person in their 20s.
One of the major draw-backs to taking creatine is the water weight that a person inevitably gains once they begin taking the supplement. If a person is not doing short, intense, repetitive exercise while taking creatine, they will continue to retain that water weight rather than reaping any benefits from taking the supplement.
3 Things You Need to Know About Creatine Free Pre-Workouts
What type of creatine are you taking?
This is important because there are so many: monohydrate, magpower, hcl, etc. The most popular being monohydrate. Here are some quick facts regarding creatine:
- creatine does increase strength,
- creatine does help you regenerate ATP
- creatine is safe
- You need 5G of creatine a day to be effective.
Creatine and Caffeine
In the previous paragraph Creative Concept Labs went over the ergogenic (intended to enhance physical performance, stamina, or recovery.) effects of creatine monohydrate. However, when taken with caffeine prior to physical exercise the ergogenic effects are negated. Caffeine is a vassal inhibitor. It puts your heart into overdrive to pump blood, because it's constricting blood flow. (spiking blood pressure.) According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, studies show that for strength training, creatine had zero effect on power output when stacked with caffeine. So to summarize: you're wasting money on caffeine and creatine when stacking them together. As well as wasting time at the gym and sending your heart and blood pressure into overdrive.
When to take creatine
Everyone has an opinion on when to take creatine. However, there is a stark difference in opinion and fact. Time and time again scientific data points to taking creatine post workout with an insulin spike. According to a study done by the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, creatine is most effective taken immediately after a workout with a source of simple sugar. This may be fruit such as grapes, ripe bananas or even gummy bears and pop-tarts. Being that insulin is the storage hormone, not only does it refill your glycogen, it pulls the creatine in.
In conclusion all the data points to taking creatine post workout with sugar. The data also tells them that it makes absolutely no sense to take it prior with caffeine, if anything, it's counterintuitive. That's why here at DAS Labs, the home of Bucked Up, they have zero creatine in their preworkout. Creative Concept Labs offer a full 6g of citrulline for pump, a perfect dose of 200mg of caffeine, Alphasize for focus and growth hormone potential, Actigin for endurance & inflammation, Astragin for citrulline bioavailability, and last but not least, Deer Antler Spray for IGF-1. Why waste your money on a pre with creatine? It's not going to have the full 5g you need. It's not going to be effective when stacked with caffeine. It's best taken with a post workout shake with sugar and protein. Don't cut corners. Creatine is very inexpensive to dose at 5g post workout. Invest in yourself with the proper pre-workout & the right amount and timing of creatine monohydrate.
