What Is Alphadrox?
Alphadrox is an organic pre-workout supplement designed to maximize workout potential for greater lean muscle gains achieved in a shorter period of time. It uses a natural formula blend of amino acids and other extracts to purportedly boost strength, stamina, energy and endurance by boosting the body’s natural production of nitric oxide. It is manufactured by a United States-based company and is sold all over the world. Its active ingredients are L-Arginine, L-Citrulline and L-Norvaline. It has been advertised in such media outlets as Men’s Health and Maxim.
This supplement is designed for the average fitness enthusiast who wants to get a leaner, more sculpted and more ripped physique as well as bodybuilders and weightlifters who want to boost their competitive fitness level. It is also designed for and marketed to athletes who want to improve their sports performance. It claims to be a safer alternative to dangerous, illegal anabolic steroids.
Alphadrox is manufactured by a company that lists itself by the name of simply ‘Alphadrox.’ Its corporate facilities are based in Phoenix, Arizona. As with many fitness supplement suppliers, this company has chosen to remain anonymous and to allow its products to speak for themselves. While this – if that is indeed the company’s goal – is an admirable one, it might be wise to at least provide the public with a brief company history. This helps customers to foster trust with a brand they are considering purchasing from.
Very little info on this manufacturer is available online. Despite this fact, Alphadrox does develop, manufacture and market a variety of other health and fitness products. This has likely given them insight into creating quality merchandise solutions for their chosen demographics. The manufacturer does not state via the official Alphadrox website whether or not it uses GMP-certified facilities to create its products, though it is likely it does.
How Alphadrox Works?
This supplement claims to enable faster lean muscle gains by speeding up the delivery of oxygen, nutrients and proteins to muscle tissue. The amino acid compounds in its formula are key to speeding up the production of nitric oxide, a natural molecule key to optimal vasodilation. As competitive bodybuilders and weightlifters are well aware, vasodilation is the process of widening the arterial walls. When these smooth muscle walls expand, oxygen-rich blood and nutrients are better able to reach working muscle tissue, which translates to more effective muscle pumps and a speedier post-workout recovery. A faster recovery not only means the body is better able to build and repair muscle fibers but also that users are able to work out more intensely and more frequently.
Protein synthesis support is another way this manufacturer claims Alphadrox works to help users build more lean muscle mass and shed more fat. Protein synthesis is a biological process key to building muscle. When tiny tears in muscle fibers called ‘micro tears’ occur during exercise, arteries drive blood to the area to help repair and build new muscle via protein synthesis. Protein synthesis thereby makes muscles stronger and larger than they were pre-exercise. Considering the fact that protein is a fundamental building block of muscle tissue (as well as all other bodily tissue), this company promises that its amino acids will stimulate the process of protein synthesis as well as vasodilation for stronger lean muscle packed on at a quicker rate.
Alphadrox also claims to work by reducing the fatigue experienced during exercise. This effect is also purportedly accomplished by the stimulation of nitric oxide production. As lactic acid buildup during training is a major cause of muscle fatigue, this supplement’s natural compounds may reduce this buildup for maximum training potential. Users must be aware that these capsules are not magic pills; dramatic results will only occur when taken consistently along with a protein-rich, balanced diet and an intensive strength-training regimen. Each bottle comes with 60 capsules for a full one-month supply and are intended to be taken before workouts with a glass of water or a protein shake.
Ingredients of Alphadrox
This supplement promises users an all-natural, high-quality and high-concentration formula blend. Its key ingredients are L-Arginine, L-Citrulline and L-Norvaline. Its primary ingredient, L-Arginine, is an amino acid that is believed to be especially effective for increasing nitric oxide production in the body. The reason it is believed to significantly support better blood flow is because it is a precursor to nitric oxide, which means that it is converted to this muscle-building molecule via a biochemical process. It is believed to contribute to muscle growth – also known as ‘myogenesis’ – because it is necessary to the synthesis of most proteins.
L-Citrulline is a natural non-essential protein originally derived from watermelons. The manufacturer asserts it is effective in relaxing arterial walls for improved blood flow. It is also believed to aid in the process of protein synthesis as well as to reduce lactic acid buildup. It functions by being converted to L-Arginine, after which is is converted to nitric oxide. L-Citrulline is currently experiencing a surge of popularity in modern workout supplements.
L-Norvaline, Alphadrox’s third key ingredient, is another amino acid that may also support the building of new muscle and in the regeneration of new tissue. Along with L-Arginine and L-Citrulline, it may also help to stimulate nitric oxide production. It is believed to significantly inhibit the production of an enzyme called arginase, which limits the amount of nitric oxide the body is able to produce. This contributes to stronger, more blood-driven and effective muscle pumps as well as a faster recovery period. Other ingredients included in this supplement’s formula are Caffeine Anhydrous, Rice Flour, Gelatin, Magnesium Stearate and Silicon Dioxide.
Alphadrox claims to deliver faster muscle-building results by speeding up the process of delivering proteins and nutrients to working muscle tissue. By optimizing workouts, it may increase stamina and endurance as well as ramp up metabolic efficiency. These effects may contribute to greater fat-burning capability with which to shed more pounds. It also promises to elevate energy levels for longer, more intense workouts as well as more energy in everyday life. It may also increase vasodilation for enhanced workouts and stronger, harder muscles.
Another of this product’s biggest advantages is the fact that its formula is all-natural. This means users may get the benefits of performance enhancement and muscle growth without the use of dangerous, illegal anabolic steroids. This is an especially important benefit for competitive fitness professionals and athletes. When used to attain maximum results, it may also increase confidence levels due to users looking and feeling their best. Another important advantage is this supplement’s ease of use; all users must do is to take one or two capsules before workouts and (hopefully) experience the ensuing energy surge.
The official Alphadrox website cites an impressive statistic about the efficacy of one of its key ingredients. The website cites a statistic asserting that, in studies conducted by the Department of Medical Physiology and Microcirculation at Texas A&M University, the amino acid L-Norvaline has been shown to increase nitric oxide production by 55%. It also offers two graphs displaying the level of amino acids usable by the body both before and after ingestion of this supplement as well as a second graph displaying blood arginine levels before and after the same. Both graphs show an appreciable increase after taking this, though it does not offer links or statistics to further establish their point. Providing such links would likely be especially effective in convincing the more cautious fitness consumer that this product does indeed do what it says it does.
The product website also displays several more impressive-sounding statistics it similarly does not provide documenting links for. In addition to repeating the first statistic, which promises to help users look up to 55% more ripped, it lists a second promising to increase strength by up to 46%. The third statistic promises to increase shredding by up to 32%. It would be very interesting for the manufacturer to determine how these percentage points were arrived at in order to provide further relevant information for users.
I’d been going through a workout plateau for awhile, so I needed to find a supplement that would help me start seeing results again. I just wasn’t seeing any more muscle coming from my workouts, and I didn’t seem to be burning many more calories, either. Alphadrox turned out to be exactly what I was looking for to help me break through. I’ve lost weight and gained an inch of muscle. This has been a big win for me. – Joseph, graphic designer in Baltimore, MD, USA
I’ve tried nitric oxide–boosters in the past but haven’t been too impressed with the results. I decided to try this one because of the free trial, figuring I had nothing to lose. Well, I lost ten pounds in a matter of months and my girlfriend can’t keep her hands off me. This has given me the energy to fuel my workouts and burn calories while building muscle. – Juan, art director in Mexico City, Mexico
Once I hit 50, I started to notice that I just didn’t have the strength or stamina I used to (not to mention the washboard abs I used to have!) I wanted to do something about it, so I ordered a bottle of this stuff and gave it a shot. My muscles haven’t been this defined since I was 30. My workout buddies are now asking me what my secret weapon is, and I tell them it’s all Alphadrox. – Miles, business owner in Suffolk, United Kingdom
I’ve been taking one pill with my regular protein shake before workouts, and I have noticed a big difference. It seems to kick in right away and it doesn’t make me irritable or jittery like other nitric oxide–boosters I’ve tried in the past. Customer service was a breeze to work with when I called them up with some questions, and my package was delivered quickly. I would definitely recommend at least looking into this. – Mackie, truck driver in Orlando, FL, USA
Awards & Media Coverage
Alphadrox has had an impressive run on various mass-media outlets. Some of these outlets include Men’s Health and Maxim. It has also been advertised on such popular online outlets as Playboy and Men’s Journal. The product website states that its supplies are limited due to recent media coverage. This coverage has almost certainly contributed to this pre-workout supplement’s popularity among users in the fitness industry.
Its website does not show this supplement as having won any awards as of yet. As it is still being actively sold by the original manufacturer, it is possible it may collect an award or two in the future. It seems to be a popular choice among bodybuilders online as evidenced by its presence on a number of reputable fitness forums and websites. It has also received positive reviews on several supplement review websites.
Customers who would like to test drive a bottle of Alphadrox may do so for the cost of only shipping and handling via a 14-day trial period. Each trial comes with a monthly auto-ship subscription program, which means trial customers will be automatically debited for – and then shipped – a fresh bottle every thirty days after the original trial’s conclusion. Customers may contact customer service to cancel their trial anytime before the 14th day of their evaluation period in order to avoid incurring charges. If the customer has not cancelled by the 14th day, they will be charged for the initial bottle and subsequently enrolled in the auto-delivery program. Dedicated Alphadrox customers may find this program to be highly convenient, while those who prefer to do their own ordering on an as-needed basis may find this program to be inconvenient and perhaps even a drawback to ordering.
Fitness enthusiasts may also try this supplement out on a non-trial basis with the company’s 30-day risk-free guarantee. The only request the manufacturer makes is to please give it a fair trial before deciding upon a return. In the event the customer decides to proceed with a return request, they must then contact customer service to receive a Return Authorization Number, which they must then clearly mark on the package. Absolutely no returns are credited to packages marked either ‘return to sender’ or any packages without a valid RMA#. Customers must then mail the unopened, undamaged bottle back to the company’s Phoenix, AZ fulfillment facilities within 30 days of shipment.
Alphadrox customers can have a bottle delivered to any location within the United States. The manufacturer also offers shipping to Puerto Rico. The current shipping and handling rate is a minimal $4.95. The product website promises to ship all orders within 24 hours of purchase, which is an extremely impressive turnaround time. According to the company’s shipping policy, customers will receive packages in 2-5 business days.
The manufacturer utilizes the United States Post Office as its shipping carrier of choice. It does not appear that expedited shipping options are available, which this company may want to reconsider for maximum customer convenience. The ‘terms and conditions’ page on the website does not state whether the company delivers on weekends. It also does not specify whether it delivers on certain holidays.
The manufacturer of Alphadrox offers customers the usual channels of customer service support, which should be more than adequate for any and all questions. Customers may call the company with questions regarding the product itself, shipping policies, return information or for any reason at all. Customer service is available for support for both pre-sale questions as well as post-sale follow-up questions. The first avenue of contact listed is an email address for optimum convenience. The second is a toll-free 1-888 telephone number for support via a live representative.
For returns as well as physical correspondence, the product website lists a United States address in Phoenix, Arizona. The manufacturer also encourages customers to send postcards, presumably for testimonial purposes and/or user feedback. It also states that it stands by its products and friendly customer service, which is an excellent mission statement and policy to create a dedicated customer base. The customer care department is open Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. MST.
Safe & Secure Checkout
The transaction section of the Alphadrox website bears a trust mark certifying that the site is secured by a 128-Bit Secure SSL Connection. This means that the manufacturer utilizes specialized security software called ‘encryption,’ which scrambles data in the event a hacker attempts to intercept sensitive customer information. The site is also secured by a Verisign Secured safety logo. This seal certifies that the website’s authenticity has been validated and secured by Verisign. It also enables a secure connection between the company’s server and the customer’s web browser, helping to create the most secure transaction possible.
ScanAlert HackerSafe is another security seal utilized by the manufacturer to safeguard sensitive customer information. This software runs daily scans to assess its websites for vulnerability, thus helping to keep them free of malware, viruses and phishing. This website also displays a McAfee Secure security certificate, which also scans the website for safety and security and awards the certificate only when the site is deemed maximally secure. These safety seals are put in place to assure customers that the website owner is legitimate and that their information is safely stored on secure company servers.
The manufacturer is currently offering an exclusive web offer of 60% off a bottle of Alphadrox. The full price of a single bottle of a one-month supply of capsules is $74.45. According to the trial offer terms, there is a $4.95 processing fee per order, which can be reduced to $2.95 with a discount for a 30-day supply. The two accepted forms of payment are MasterCard and Visa.
Per the company’s return policy, returns are subject to a $19.95 restocking fee. This is rather steep, even for supplement suppliers. Also per company policy, the price is subject to change at any time in accordance with the price of raw materials, delivery costs, labor, associated taxes or for any reason the company deems applicable. There is currently no pricing package for multi-bottle purchases nor are there any other purchase bonuses at this time.
