Power Drive

Power Drive® 225 g

Rocket Fuel for the Mind
Neural Recovery Formula

Tap into the explosive, muscle-building neurotransmitters of the brain.

Power Drive contains a rich supply of L-tyrosine, the amino-acid precursor to the stimulatory neurotransmitters epinephrine, norepinephrine, and dopamine, which facilitate muscle-fiber recruitment, mental focus, and mood. Power Drive also provides ample amounts of phosphatidylcholine and DMAE to promote the production of acetylcholine, which supports motor control and memory.

Power Drive is designed to help users:

  • Increase muscle-fiber recruitment and strength
  • Heighten and focus concentration
  • Accelerate training progress and muscular gains
  • Boost motivation and mood
  • Achieve and sustain higher energy levels
  • Gain a mental edge during competition†

Each serving of Power Drive contains:

Ingredient Amount
L-Tyrosine 3 g
Phosphatidylcholine 1 g
DMAE 200 mg
Vitamin B6 20 mg

Contains no caffeine.

Supercharge the mind/muscle connection and get more out of your workouts.

Biotest product testing indicates that 45 minutes after using Power Drive, as recommended, strength levels can increase by as much as 8-12%. Individual results may vary widely.

Most often, enhancing athletic performance is focused on conquering the body while ignoring the brain. The trouble is, everything is controlled by the brain, including how well your muscles work. Ever wonder how some relatively weak-looking guys can rip apart phone books or bend steel rods in half? A lot of it has to do with muscle motor-unit recruitment.

Muscles are made up of individual motor units and some people are gifted with the ability to recruit more of these motor units when it comes to performing an act of strength, speed, or power.

Power Drive is designed to help you recruit more of muscle motor units so that you experience an almost immediate gain in strength, power, and endurance. And, over the long run, this enhanced ability to recruit more motor units can result in greater muscle gains. It stands to reason that, under normal circumstances, the average weight trainer doesn't even begin to work a good percentage of his or her muscle fibers. In effect, these fibers "sit by" during an average workout and receive very little direct stimulation. Without stimulation or recruitment, they won't respond by growing!

The Power Drive formula is also designed to improve fat mobilization, mental concentration, memory, coordination, and endurance. It may, in some individuals, also increase pain threshold and overall sense of well-being.

Lastly, Power Drive may prevent age-related decreases in testosterone levels. As you age, levels of a neurotransmitter called dopamine decrease, and this causes an increase in a hormone called prolactin. Unfortunately, increases in prolactin are accompanied by a decrease in testosterone. Power Drive may elevate dopamine levels, thus preventing the catabolic sequence.

Power Drive's Active Ingredients

L-Tyrosine: The brain converts L-tyrosine into the stimulatory neurotransmitters dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine (the last two being the famous "fight or flight" hormones), known collectively as catecholamines. Approximately 90% of the brain's catecholamines are synthesized directly from the amino acid tyrosine.

During the early 1980s, MIT scientist Richard Wurtman discovered that tyrosine, when combined with a catalyst, "enhances performance, improves subjective vigor, decreases fatigue, diminishes subjective confusion, and decreases tension and anxiety." Subsequent preliminary studies performed by Dr. Jeffery Stout of the University of Nebraska found that tyrosine, when administered about an hour before working out, increased peak torque by 283% (during a set of 15 bench presses).

In short, the evidence is strong that supplemental tyrosine can improve performance as well as increase energy levels, along with a host of other subjective feelings of mental ability and well-being.

Phosphatidylcholine: It's been shown to increase levels of another vital neurotransmitter known as acetylcholine. This potent neurotransmitter has been implicated in controlling motor unit recruitment, reflex and reaction times, as well as memory.

DMAE: This is a well-known among life-extensionists as a "nootropic," or mind-enhancing chemical. Chemically, it works much the same as phosphatidylcholine by helping increase levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.

How does Power Drive work?

Power Drive is a sweet-tasting orange-flavored powder that mixes easily in water. The formula is designed to increase the levels of stimulatory brain chemicals. It does this by supplying the brain with the raw ingredients required to manufacture these important stimulatory neurotransmitters.

Who should use Power Drive?

Power Drive will improve the performance of strength athletes, endurance athletes, and even those athletes who require extreme concentration like marksmen or golfers. Businessmen and students might benefit from it too, as it will give them unparalleled mental energy and drive.

Is the formula addictive?

Power Drive is "addictive" only in the sense that anything that causes pleasurable sensations and feelings is addictive. In other words, if something makes you feel good, you'll probably want to use it again. However, none of the ingredients have been shown to cause any physical addiction. All of Power Drive's ingredients occur naturally in certain foods.

Does Power Drive have any potential negative side effects?

No, there are no known negative side effects to Power Drive.

Have any studies been done?

Each of the components of Power Drive has been tested thoroughly in nonpartisan laboratory experiments.
