You brave and invincible Spartans have more than proven yourselves on the blood drenched battlefields and defied any fierce opponent. With our 300 and 300alfa booster, you have reached the limits of all humans and gone beyond any limits.
But after every merciless battle, it is time for the deserved rest. With Ephialtes you will get the rest and peace that your hard-working muscles deserve and need so desperately to recover and become even stronger, bulkier and scarier. Nothing can stop a well-rested fighting machine - you know that and your enemies know it! That's why you will become the real nightmare of your opponents with the help of Ephialtes (which is the Greek word for nightmare)!
Prepare yourself mentally for the next brutal battle by being rested and full of fighting power on the battlefield. The next fight in the gym is just as hard as the night before was restful. So go to hell and rest!! Raise and pour out of the gates of hell when your King Leonidas calls for you - you will need all your strength during the next murderous and merciless battle with the cold and merciless steel in the gym.
You're probably like the fearless and always ready to fight Spartan warriors - rest and sleep are a necessary evil for you - you know it's necessary, but you still dislike it because you'd rather spend all this time fighting hard battles against the most fearsome opponents in the gym or want to be active in other ways. You may even consider sleep and rest as a waste of time or something for pussies and try to get along with as little sleep and rest as possible. This may seem heroic and martial to you, but will sooner or later backfire, as a lack of rest and sleep can become the worst and most ruthless enemy. In comparison to this enemy the army of the Persians will look like a bunch of weekend warriors with pitchforks.
If you do not get enough rest and sleep your recovery will suffer. As a result, you can not fight hard fights in the gym anymore, while the levels of catabolic hormones like cortisol will be skyrocketing. You will become weaker and lose battle power and muscle mass until you are more like an old washerwoman than a strong and victorious Spartan fighter. You will not need an overpowering opponent anymore, because you will defeat and destroy yourself!
Of course, we had to do something to stop this, because the world already has more than enough wimps and washerwomen and could use a lot more heroic and fearless Spartans who face every challenge and never give up. You hate to rest and want to fight and be active all the time, while at the same time needing rest and sleep to maintain your fighting power? We got down to work and found an answer to this dilemma – and this answer is called Ephialtes. Ephialtes will stimulate and accelerate your recovery by promoting a deeper and more restful sleep, while counteracting the release of catabolic hormones and stimulating the release of anabolic hormones.
With Ephialtes you can kill two birds with one stone: your recovery will be accelerated and promoted, while a deeper and more restful sleep means that you need less sleep to be optimally rested for the next day and to have maximum combat power. You will get the best of both worlds: an optimal recovery and a reduced need for sleep.
A Spartan warrior is already an almost invincible fighting machine by itself, but the real fighting power of a Spartan army is based on the collaboration of several of these fighters. We have used this knowledge during the development of Ephialtes and put together an army of several ingredients that are already highly effective on their own. These powerful ingredients complement and support each other as effectively as the individual fighters of a Spartan army support each other, resulting in an unsurpassed synergistic effect. In other words, the combined overall effect of this army of powerful ingredients is far greater than the added up effects of each ingredient.
When choosing these ingredients, we focused exclusively on proven active Ingredients with scientifically studied effect and refrained from on all highly hyped frills with dubious effect. The result was a powerful matrix with the following ingredients:
GABA is a non-essential amino acid that does not occur in food, but can be produced by your body to some extent. In the human brain, GABA is the most important inhibitory neurotransmitter that shows a calming effect by inhibiting the transmission of signals at the nerve endings by activating the so-called GABA receptors.
GABA is therefore a highly effective endogenous tranquilizer. Interestingly, the effects of many pharmaceutical tranquilizers such as Valium are based on an artificial intervention in the natural GABA metabolism of the brain that mimics the effects of endogenous GABA. Unlike Valium and related tranquilizers, however, GABA is not addictive and is therefore completely safe and harmless. Because GABA shows a central calming effect, this potent amino acid promotes a deeper and more restful sleep. And because your muscles do not grow during your merciless battle in the gym, but during the rest following this battle, and because sleep plays a crucial role in this process, a deeper and more restful sleep is equivalent to a faster, more complete recovery. When you are recovering better and faster, you can work out harder and more often, which will result in significant gains of muscle mass and strength.
Even so a true Spartan warrior does not what pain is, it should not go unmentioned that GABA can reduce exercise-induced pain such as muscle soreness, while increasing your pain tolerance. If you have not completed the transformation to a true Spartan warrior who fears neither death nor pain, this could be an interesting aspect for you.
But GABA can do a lot more. Every hard-working Iron Warrior and even the most fearless Spartan warrior knows and fears the effects of the catabolic stress hormone cortisol that is released in large quantities in response to mental and physical stress, such as a brutal and merciless fights against the cold steel of heavy weights in the gym. This hormone has a pronounced muscle-wasting effect and can be more dangerous for the hard body of a Spartan warrior than any sword in the hands of his defeated opponents, as it weakens his body and reduces his combat power. Luckily, GABA can take that fear off you and make you a truly fearless iron warrior, as it has the ability to relieve mental and physical stress and to dramatically reduce the dreaded cortisol levels. Incidentally, the muscle building effects of many anabolic steroids are largely due to a reduction of the body’s cortisol release.
Another highlight of GABA we have reserved until the end. Did you know that GABA not only promotes a deeper and more restful sleep, but also increases your natural growth hormone secretion during your sleep by up to 600%? Yes, you have read correctly and the 600% are not a typo! Human growth hormone is one of the most anabolic hormones of your body and does not only promote muscle growth, but will also accelerate your post-workout recovery. As an added bonus, human growth hormone stimulates the breakdown of body fat, which will make it easier for you not only to become as strong and fearless as a glorious fighter from King Leonida’s army, but also to get this granite-carved body of a Spartan warrior!
5-hydroxytryptophan - also known by the abbreviation 5-HTP - is a derivative of the amino acid tryptophan, which occurs naturally in small amounts in some foods. In the human body, 5-hydroxytryptophan is an intermediate in the synthesis of serotonin from the amino acid tryptophan. Prior to the development of more effective selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, 5-hydroxytryptophan has been widely used in the medical field to increase the body's serotonin levels. 5-HTP is far more effective than tryptophan in this regard, as it is one synthesis step closer to serotonin.
Serotonin is primarily known as a neurotransmitter that improves mood and well being, but it also significantly affects your sleep. With this information in mind, it is not surprising that 5-hydroxytryptophan has been used successfully for treating sleep disorders in the medical field for a long time. One of the benefits of 5-hydroxytryptophan is that it promotes the important REM sleep phases. In addition, it is also needed for the synthesis of the body's sleep hormone melatonin. In combination all of this will result in a shorter time needed to fall asleep, a longer sleeping time and a significantly improved sleep quality.
But 5-HTP can do a lot more. It has been shown that 5-hydroxytryptophan can promote your post-workout recovery and thus enable you to exercise more often with a higher intensity. This effect is partially based on an improved sleep quality, but there is more! A supplementation with 5-hydroxytryptophan has a direct positive effect on the body's production of important hormones such as thyroid and growth hormones, which are important for a healthy function of your metabolism and will promote muscle growth and recovery.
In addition, 5-HTP increases the levels of the most anabolic endogenous growth factor IGF-1, while also having a positive effect on follistatin, which inhibits the formation of myostatin. For all those of you, who have spent the last few years under a rock in the desert, it should be noted that myostatin is the primary factor responsible for inhibiting your muscle growth and that reducing your body’s myostatin production will dramatically promote muscle growth even without accompanying exercise. But that is not all - 5-hydroxytryptophan can also stimulate the formation of satellite cells, which are directly involved in recovery and muscle growth.
Numerous scientific studies have shown that a combination of 5-hydroxytryptophan and GABA is particularly effective when it comes to improving sleep quality, increasing the body's growth hormone production, and promoting recovery and muscle building. This is where the already mentioned synergy comes into play and the overall effect of an army of effective active ingredients turns out to be much greater than the added up effects of the individual ingredients.
L-theanine is an amino acid that is a derivative of the amino acid glutamine and occurs almost exclusively in tea. Theanine has the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and thus can exert its effects directly in your brain. In addition to an increased dopamine release, these effects also include increases of the natural levels of GABA and serotonin in your brain. Do these neurotransmitters sound somehow familiar?
Particularly interesting is the fact that theanine has positive effects on the so-called alpha waves in your brain. Alpha waves are known to induce a restful relaxation that will improve your sleep quality and your ability to concentrate, allowing for a more focused hard battle in the gym, as well as reducing anxiety, making you a highly concentrated and fearless fighting machine. And as if that was not enough, alpha waves also reduce the release of catabolic hormones like cortisol, which makes theanine and 5-hydroxytryptophan an ideal combination in the fight against this dreaded catabolic enemy.
