The Seventies had our brothers fighting to keep "the man" from dropping the bomb. The times were simple, the love was free and living was easy. Nowadays, however, it seems you´ve gotta make some noise and shake the ground if you´re going to make your presence felt. In 2012, sometimes the basics alone simply won´t suffice. Everything worth having is accessorized, tricked out, supercharged or enhanced. Such a statement runs contrary to what our usual recommendations suggest--that keeping it simple in all things bodybuilding is typically the path to the greatest gains. Hard and consistent training with the free weight basics, proper whole food nutrients consumed regularly and simple supplements proven time and again-staples like protein powder and creatine. This simplicity has long been our mantra. As "the amino company" Universal has long extolled the virtues of time-tested, core ingredients like supplemental amino acids.
Taking this commitment to delivering the basics so seriously, however, demands a certain forward-thinking perspective. If you´re going to provide these indispensable products, you must package and offer them in their most advanced, proven and effective form, or why bother? The goal at all times at Universal is to evolve and progress, getting better and doing better. In this most important way, our goals are no different than those of our loyal consumers. When the time came to raise our game and create a new supplement containing those most coveted of aminos—the branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) we knew that the mere basics alone just wouldn´t cut it. We needed to formulate an enhanced product, one made for the rigors of the advanced athlete. Not merely a powerful formula, but one that was downright explosive.
An athlete must be able to perform at such an extremely high level over the course of long periods of time if success is to be achieved in the respective sport of choice, bodybuilders and strength athletes included. For the bodybuilder, gains in strength and size don´t happen overnight. It is the persistent day in and day out training in the gym that can make or break ones physique. And even more so, the true iron athlete knows that it just isn´t enough to only have a good session every so often. They need to tap in and get the most out of their abilities each and every time out. For them, just being at the gym going through the motions isn´t enough. The iron athlete trains hard each and every time in the gym. His goals are constantly in mind when plowing through tough session after tough session. The gritting through each grueling session month after month is where athletes truly reap their rewards. With this hard training, elite athlete in mind, the fellas at Universal cooked up a powerful BCAA performance supplement. The goal in mind was to combine the time tested benefits of BCAA along with key performance ingredients that would take an athlete´s ability to consistently train hard and perform at a high level on the daily, up a notch. On to the scene enters Atomic 7.
Atomic 7 is a targeted and strategically enhanced BCAA performance supplement. Atomic 7 combines the benefits of a scientifically researched 2:1:1 ratio of BCAA along with key performance ingredients such as citrulline malate, l-glutamine and l-taurine. These powerful ergogenic aids, along with BCAAs, may help to not only maximize your performance in the gym but also promote recovery at the same time. Citrulline malate has been suggested to increase plasma arginine levels and nitric oxide more effectively than arginine itself. The physiological effect of boosting NO as citrulline malate does includes added support for the regulation of blood flow and amino acid delivery to muscle tissue, improved oxygen delivery, enhanced glucose uptake and muscle strength amongst other things. Citrulline malate also plays a role in reduced lactic acid and ammonia buildup, optimized ATP production, battles exercise related muscle fatigue and promotes endurance.
Atomic 7 is further enhanced with l-glutamine, which is the most abundant amino acid in the body, comprising more than 60% of the free amino acid pool in skeletal muscle and greater than 20% of total circulating amino acids and is used not only by skeletal muscle but also the immune system and gut in order to help maintain homeostasis. Strenuous exercise can deplete the body´s glutamine stores at a fast rate, making it an important amino acid for athletes to consume, especially to assist with rebuilding muscle tissue after intense training sessions. Glutamine also plays an important role in protein metabolism and cell volumization. Ensuring that an optimal level of glutamine is maintained by the athlete is key for continued intense training sessions. Atomic 7 also contains l-taurine, which believe it or not, is the second most abundant amino acid in muscle. L-taurine has been suggested to work by expanding muscle cells by helping the cell itself hold more water and thus support increased cell volume. For bodybuilders and strength athletes, this is of utmost important as expanded muscle cells can boost hydration which may help support a higher rate of protein synthesis. A nice side effect is increased appearance of muscle fullness. Atomic 7 is then rounded out by the addition of the ever important vitamin B6, which is key in ensuring proper metabolization of the other amino acids in the formula.
Available in Groovy Grape, ´Lectric Lemon Lime, Rockin´ Razz Lemonade and Way Out Watermelon flavors, not only is Atomic 7 a powerful formula, but this versatile powder, able to be used pre-, intra and post-workout as well as sipped on over the course of the day, provides a refreshing blast of flavor, able to add taste to the most bland of bodybuilding diets.
BCAAs are on the rise. The evidence in the lab is undeniable and the shaker cups of the biggest, fastest and strongest tell the most compelling tale. With this knowledge in mind, the New Brunswick, New Jersey brain trust at The U sought to develop a product much like the athletes who salute the yellow flag. One born in the proving grounds of the golden era but powerful enough to dominate in the modern arena. The result? Atomic 7. The explosive, enhanced BCAA formula. Only from Universal.
