Everyone has had one of those days before. You know the kind we’re referring to….boss is on your case, cable repair guy stood you up, your brand new smartphone just fell in the toilet. Yeah, now you understand those days -- the really sh*tty ones that have you at wit’s end! These are the days when someone even looks at you cross, and you go Ape Sh*t! Going “Ape Sh*t”   Ape Sh*t (adj.) - To behave in an explosive manner; to act without regard, due to becoming enraged or extremely angry. It takes a certain confluence of events to drive someone absolutely ape sh*t. In the wrong setting, being in such an untamed fury can spell disaster, but in the right place (i.e. the gym), going ape shit can set the stand for record-shatter workouts, where it just rains PRs for the entire session. Wouldn’t it be great to have that same feeling day after day in the gym, without actually having a shitty day?!  Enter Ape Shi*t Pre Workout What is Ape Sh*t? Ape Sh*t is a high energy pre workout that supports increased energy, aggression, motivation and focus along with increased blood flow to boost performance and pumps.*  Ape Sh*t Ingredients L-Citrulline L-Citrulline is a premium nitric oxide support ingredient. It is an amino acid found prevalently in the flesh and rind of watermelon. Studies show it is superior to the old favorite NO-booster (L-Arginine) due to L-Citrulline’s higher bioavailability.[1]* With greater nitric oxide production, the stage is set for greater vasodilation, vascularity, and PUMPS!*There’s more to L-Citrulline than just vein-gorging pumps though, it’s also is known to support increased athletic performance.* Studies indicate that supplementing with L-Citrulline prior to training may enhance ATP production, boost endurance, and support lean body mass gains.*[2,3] Beta Alanine Tired of burning out mid set and leaving gains in the gym? Then, beta alanine might be just the thing your training needs.*When exercising, hydrogen (H+) ions accumulate in muscle tissue which drops the pH in muscles leading to an acidic environment. Once this occurs, that painful “burning” sensation hits like a Mack Truck, terminating the set.*Beta Alanine helps delay the onset of fatiuge and "beat back" the burn, by increasing carnosine concentrations in skeletal muscle.[4]* Higher levels of carnosine improve body’s buffering capacity to shuttle out those acidic ions, delaying that burning sensation, and increasing training capacity.*The end result is greater stamina, strength, and endurance.[5,6,7] Something any athlete, not just weightlifters, can benefit from!* Taurine When you’re going Ape Sh*t in the gym, you’re bringing everything you got, and that inevitably means you’re sweating your ass off! While that’s a strong indication you’re pushing the limits, it’s also a sign that you may be losing valuable electrolytes needed for hydration and muscle contraction!To support hydration and performance, Ape Sh*t contains TWO full grams of L-Taurine, a conditionally essential amino acid that functions as an osmolyte in the body.[8]* Taurine helps pull water into muscle cells, which improves hydration, cell volumization, muscle fullness, and endurance.*There’s more though! Taurine is also a highly underrated focus booster, as vast reserves of taurine are found in the brain, where it serves to enhance cognition and attention.[9]* Agmatine Sulfate (750mg) Agmatine is a multi-faceted nutrient that has a number of alluring properties.* Agmatine supports nitric oxide in two ways by stimulating eNOS and inhibiting arginase, the enzyme that degrades arginine (the amino acid responsible for N.O. production).[10] Limiting arginase activity supports greater Arginine levels, promoting greater nitric oxide production and longer-lasting muscle pumps!* Agmatine has also been noted to modulate pain receptors which may allow for longer training capacity.*  Choline Bitartrate Hitting the gym with unbridled aggression and rage is great if it’s focused on a singular goal. Without focus, that aggression just turns you into the typical bro jerk who’s screaming and dropping weights all over the ground -- and NO ONE likes that guy.* Choline is needed for the production of the learning transmitter acetylcholine, which promotes focus as well as the “mind-muscle connection”.[11]* Caffeine Caffeine is the consummate pre-workout stimulant.* It picks you up when you’re low on energy and helps motivate you to get the job done! For these exact reasons, Untamed Labs has included a synergistic trifecta of caffeine to provide both immediate and long-lasting energy.*Caffeine Anhydrous provides the jumpstart needed to get going in the gym, and the addition of Caffeine Citrate and Infinergy™ Dicaffeine Malate serve to further enhance energy levels, thereby helping Ape Sh*t hit harder and last longer.*The unique combination of caffeine variants is what sets Ape Sh*t from any other pre-workout on the market.* No crash, no headaches, no jitters -- just pure energy, focus, and motivation!* Yohimbine Bark Extract 8% Yohimbine is the active component of yohimbe extracted from Pausinystalia Yohimbe.*Yohimbine is an Alpha-2-Adrenergic receptor antagonist that works by increasing adrenaline and noradrenaline levels in the body, stimulating the “fight or flight” response, and thereby promoting alertness, energy, and motivation.[12] Yohimbine also supports fat burning by inhibiting a regulatory process in fat cells that stunts fat burning.* Toothed Clubmoss (Standardized to 1% Huperzine A) Huperzine supports increased acetylcholine levels by inhibiting acetylcholinesterase, the enzyme responsible for acetylcholine breakdown.*[13] Limiting acetylcholinesterase activity helps further enhance acetylcholine levels and prolongs its actions, promoting stronger focus and mind-muscle connection.*There’s more though! Huperzine  is also noted to possess neuroprotective qualities as it defends against glutamine (the neuron death molecule)[14], and supports the creation of new brain cells![15]* Suggested Use Consume 1-2 scoops with 8-10 oz of water 15-20 minutes prior to training to unleash your inner beast!

Ape Sh*t Cutz
Ape Sh*t Cutz
$34.99
What is Ape Sh*t Cutz? Ape Sh*t Cutz is a thermogenic pre workout scientifically formulated to support increased athletic performance, endurance, and calorie burning. We’ve taken the best elements from our best-selling, high energy pre workout Ape Sh*t and added in prominent weight loss support agents to create the ultimate fat-burning pre workout supplement.* What’s the Difference Between Ape Sh*t & Ape Sh*t Cutz? The biggest difference between the original Ape Sh*t pre workout and Ape Sh*t Cutz is the swap of nitric oxide support ingredients for weight loss support agents. In lieu of L-Citrulline, Agmatine, and Taurine, we’ve included several compounds that help support fat metabolism and increased thermogenesis to help burn more calories during training.* Make no mistake though, Ape Sh*t Cutz still offers the same delicious flavor you’ve come to expect from all Primeval Labs supplements. In fact, we believe this may surpass the flavoring of the original Ape Sh*t!* Ape Sh*t Cutz Ingredients Beta Alanine Beta alanine is a prominent endurance support supplement known to support stamina and resistance to fatigue. It does so by increasing concentrations of a powerful intracellular buffer known as carnosine.*[1] With higher levels of carnosine, skeletal muscle is better able to buffer acidic (H+) ions that accumulate during repeated muscle contractions. This enables muscles to last longer before succumbing to fatigue, promoting greater stamina, strength, and endurance.*[2,3,4] Choline Bitartrate Choline is an essential nutrient that plays a key role in cognitive development, muscle movement, and the structure of cell membranes. It also serves as a building block for the “learning transmitter”, acetylcholine, which is well-known to impact focus, learning, memory, and the “mind-muscle connection.”* Supplementing with choline helps support acetylcholine production in the body promoting greater focus and a stronger mind-muscle connection during training.* Caffeine Caffeine is great for increasing mental energy, focus, and concentration. It’s also useful for supporting weight loss due to the facts that caffeine has been noted in various research trials[5,6,7,8] to help*: Enhance fatty acid oxidation* Increase lipolysis via cyclic AMP* Boost metabolic rate* Suppresse appetite This consummate pre workout stimulant also helps improve exercise performance by reducing perceived exertion, which may help athletes to train longer, banging out more reps and burning more calories.* Ape Sh*t Cutz utilizes natural caffeine from green tea to supply smooth, long-lasting energy without the jitters, edginess or crash.* Note: Each full serving (2 scoops) of Ape Sh*t Cutz supplies a total of 300mg caffeine from green tea. Garcinia Cambogia Garcinia cambogia is a small, sour-tasting, pumpkin-shaped fruit that is rich in hydroxycitric acid (HCA).* Research suggests that garcinia cambogia may help decrease oxidative stress, suppress appetite, and support weight loss efforts.*[18,19,20] Dandelion Extract Dandelion is a commonly used all-natural diuretic included to help shed unwanted water weight that tends to accumulate in the body. Research has shown that dandelion may increase urine output, as well as the frequency of urination, for up to 5 hours![9,10]*  Additional studies also suggest dandelion may enhance glucose uptake in skeletal muscle[11], promoting greater utilization and storage of carbohydrates.* Gamma-Butyrobetaine HCl (GBB) Gamma-butyrobetaine (GBB) acts as a carnitine precursor.* It is converted to carnitive via the enzyme Gamma-butyrobetaine dioxygenase (BBD).[12] Gamma-butyrobetaine dioxygenase is an oxidoreductase enzyme that mediates conversion of GBB to carnitine through the movement of electrons.[13]* Why is more carnitine beneficial? Carnitine is the molecule in the body that facilitates transportation of fatty acids into the mitochondria for beta-oxidation, a.k.a. “fat burning”. Greater carnitine availability allows for more fatty acids to be shuttled into the mitochondria to burn as fuel.* Be forewarned that GBB is known to have a prominent thermogenic effect in the body, so expect to feel the heat with Ape Sh*t Cutz!* Yohimbine Bark Extract Yohimbine is a bioactive compound found within the bark of the African tree, Pausinystalia johimbe. It has been noted to function as a powerful CNS stimulant that antagonizes alpha-2-adrenergic receptors in the body, which helps increase energy and focus while also supporting fat burning.*[14] Yohimbine has also been noted to help suppress appetite, helping individuals combat those notorious hunger pangs that arise during diets.*[15,16,17]  Disclaimer:  *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.  This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
