VPX NO-SHOTGUN MHF-1 Lime Splash 1.35lbs (615grams)

VPX NO Shotgun MHF-1 is the first muscle building supplement of its kind to use a superior synergistic blend of effective compounds. VPX NO Shotgun use's a cutting-edge pharmaceutical delivery system that yields mind blowing, skin bursting effects, while additionally enhancing recovery and protein synthesis. VPX no shotgun use's compounds such as Creatine (CEX), Arginine (AEX), Glutamine (GEX), Beta-Alanine (BAEX) and Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAAEX) that are each combined with Ethyl Ester (EX) technology to insure maximum absorption and uptake! The Ethyl Ester Compounds used in NO-Shotgun help these potent muscle building ingredients enter the bloodstream nearly 100% intact, as opposed to the same ingredients without EX technology that might only be absorbed at 15% to 40%. This highly advanced EX technology shuttles these NO-Shotgun compounds across the muscle cell membrane where they can cause explosive muscle growth! VPX highly recommends stacking pre-workout NO-Shotgun with post-workout NO-Synthesize.

VPX SHOTGUN MHF-1 Highlights:

  • Contains REDLINE & MELTDOWN’S powerful fat burning and energy technology for mind blowing intensity!
  • GBB and MTB Pump (Magnesium Tanshinoate B) for Nitric Oxide induced skin splitting pumps.
  • 40,000 milligrams of anabolic PROTEIN FRACTIONS in just one serving! No cheap dextrose or waxy maize fillers.
  • With BCAA’s & Fractionated Protein Peptides for maximal muscle protein synthesis and nitrogen retention - to important markers of muscle growth!
  • Fueled by Research proven PeptoPro and BPOV for maximum insulin secretion and insulin receptor site sensitivity. Insulin is the most anabolic of all hormones! No carbs, waxy maize starch or sugars needed.
  • With COP (Creatinol-O-Phosphate) to enhance anaerobic glycolysis and CPT (di-Na Creatine PhosphateTetrahydrate) -- two designer creatines proven in VPX labs to be resistant to conversion to creatinine. This eliminates bloating and allows transport of intact COP and CPT into muscle tissue!
  • Beta-Alanine is a hyper-performance ingredient used to increase whole body creatine retention to crank out more sets and more muscle-blasting reps for increased lean mass!
  • Satellite Cell Activators for maximal new Muscle Cell Division Hyperplasia! This means larger existing muscle fibers and splitting of these fibers to create totally new muscle.
  • Arnold himself referred to “The Pump” as something “Better Then Sex!” It is “The Pump” that signals us hard training athletes lifting for size and definition that we are maximizing our efforts in the gym.
  • NO-Shotgun fuels episodes of physical intensity to induce insane muscle pumps that can lead to muscle growth. The biochemical and physiological response to NO-Shotgun when combined with intense resistance training causes extra trauma to occur to trained muscle. Greater resistance to muscle results in significantly increased internal pressure (the pump)…And as you know, the better the pump the greater the trauma caused to muscle-tissue. The end result: increased ability to build larger muscle!
  • NO-Shotgun is the most advanced product of its kind…Bar none! VPX is so confident in the effectiveness of NO-SHOTGUN that they have a $100,000 offer on the table to ANY supplement company that can conclusively prove – in a double-blind University Study – that their product is better at producing lean muscle, generating greater ATP production for more explosive workouts and initiating NO induced, blood engorged pumps.
  • Be your own scientist, order NO-Shotgun today... Not to mention mind blowing workouts, skin bursting muscle pumps and massive increases in lean muscle tissue!

The Science Behind Shotgun MHF-1:
NO Synthesize as the Post-Workout Supplement of Choice!

  • Scientifically formulated
  • World’s most advanced Post-Workout Anabolic Cocktail
  • University tested
  • Has all the Essential Amino Acids for maximal anabolism
  • With PeptoPro, the most advanced casein protein hydrolysate
  • With Beta-Alanine to enhance performance

Let’s face it; what you consume BEFORE and AFTER you train is the most critical issue with supplement use! That’s why VPX’s NO-Shotgun and NO-Synthesize form the dynamic duo of lean mass enhancing supplements. The beauty of this system, called nutrient timing, is that NO-Shotgun and Synthesize form the perfect bookends for delivering the precise ratio of muscle-building nutrients before and after you train.

What’s the strategy for achieving gains in muscle mass fast and with ease? Nutrient timing is actually quite simple my friends. In fact, just do this, consume NO-Shotgun 30 minutes before you workout and NO-Synthesize immediately after you workout. That strategy alone will pack on slabs of beef faster than a anti-myostatin-mutant. This strategy works in men and women. Research shows that you actually don’t need that many calories. NO-Synthesize is the culmination of scientific brilliance coupled with real-world results. NO-Synthesize can be taken any time of day, even before bed. But it is ideal immediately post-training and/or during training. Here are just a few revolutionary anabolic-boosting and cell-swelling ingredients that you’ll find in NO Synthesize: Creatinol-O-Phosphate or COP has been shown to have cardioprotective effect by an action on anaerobic glycolysis.(1) Creatine Phosphate Tetrahydrate increases anaerobic working capacity.(2) Also included in the formula is Beta-Alanine, for improving time to exhaustion, increasing whole body creatine retention and acting as a buffer.(3) With a star-studded profile of other cutting-edge ingredients, VPX’s NO-Synthesize is perfect complement to MRF-inducing NO-Shotgun!

It’s a Baylor University Proven Uncontestable Scientific Fact that NO-Shotgun by VPX is the Most Significant Muscle Building Innovation in the History of Sports Nutrition. NO-Shotgun is University proven to Increase Total Muscle DNA by 148.65% and Increase Five Muscle Gene Proteins up to 515%!

Muscle DNA is important because DNA carries the genetic information of a cell. DNA encodes the information for muscle proteins and is able self-replicate. Because NO-Shotgun increases muscle DNA by 148.65%, there’s some crazy off-the-chain activity going on inside the muscle cell. Imagine, you can have a limited amount of naturally occurring muscle DNA replication going on with resistance training and get your usual lackluster results in muscle growth. Or, you can consume NO-Shotgun and experience muscle the enormous amount of muscle generated by the self replicating of a mind-blowing 148.65% increase in muscle DNA. Consequently, if weight training produced a 40% increase in DNA (see chart above) and this muscle DNA self-replicated at a rate of 10 fold, you would get a 400% increase in Muscle DNA and over the period of a year might be lucky to gain 7 pounds of lean muscle—hypothetically speaking. However, if the same DNA self-replication rate held true at 10 fold drinking NO-Shotgun, a 1,486.50% increase in muscle gene proteins would occur. One can only guess how much growth is possible at this rate in a year’s time? While some of this is theoretical science, the fact holds true that muscle gene proteins do increase at a rate of 148.65% with use of one container of NO-Shotgun over a four week period. Therefore, drinking NO-Shotgun prior to training is undoubtedly the most important research proven tactic you can use to build muscle. And, this is my theory as to why NO-Shotgun has such a dramatic effect on increasing muscle gene proteins which you’ll read about later in this article. And, further how and why satellite cells are formed resulting in hyperplasia – new muscle growth! Hyperplasia is exciting because it allows you to grow new muscle beyond what your current genetic limitation. Instead of just making existing muscle fibers larger, NO-Shotgun allows you to tap into your muscle DNA and alter muscle genes to form and build new muscle! And, that’s super exciting bodybuilding news.

DNA is your cell’s ‘blueprint’ for everything that goes on in your body. Your DNA is housed in the nucleus of each of your cells, and muscle cells have more than one nucleus. Think of the nucleus of your cell as the ‘brains’ behind the cell. It ultimately determines what your cell makes (i.e. proteins). So an increase in your muscle’s DNA is an indication that the nuclei have a greater capacity for increasing muscle protein. Also, with more nuclei (and DNA), your muscle cells have greater control over what goes on in muscle. For bodybuilders, that means you become better at attaining bigger and greater numbers of muscle fibers. And the proof is in the University Research. Consequently, this is why NO-Shotgun produces massive gains in strength, size, and muscle proteins.

  • Lean Mass - 181.1% greater gains
  • Bench Press Strength - 1108.2% greater gains
  • Leg Press Strength - 53.5% greater gains
  • Myofibrillar Protein - 167.2% greater gains
  • Total Muscle DNA – 1,800.40% greater gains
  • Myogenic Regulatory Factors – 515.0% greater increase (Myo-D) 

The chart above shows that drinking a serving of NO-Shotgun MHF-1 (Myogenic Hyperplasic Factor-1) pre-workout for one month increases Muscle DNA over three times more than training alone (with a placebo). That’s huge! And, that translates in to huge increases in lean muscle mass. In fact, as you read the charts throughout this article you will see that this increase in new muscle is crisp, sharp water-free lean muscle mass gains. This is important because other companies are claiming “water retention” as part of the gains in lean mass form their product. While it is true that these are not fat gains, it is highly untrue and unethical to count a water-retaining-bloat as muscle. This is why other companies include a significant amount of carbohydrates in their formulae – A) its cheap and, B) they deceptively claim that the water-weight gain from the carbohydrates is lean muscle. Each gram of carbohydrate makes you hold three grams of water. Drink their carb-laden product for a month and you’ll be holding more water than a Sperm Whale and, these unscrupulous companies will tell you that your bloat is research-proven gains in lean muscle!

What if they told you that taking 21 grams per day of a pre-workout supplement would not only put on muscle mass, but do it by elevating the Myogenic Regulatory Factors or MRFs? What are the MRFs you ask? In the broadest sense, MRFs are proteins that bind to DNA thus controlling how genetic information is passed from DNA to RNA. These MRFs thus control the creation of new muscle tissue. Now unless you decide to take a molecular biology class, take their word for it that these MRFs are highly important for regulating muscle mass. So, let’s get to the meat of the matter. Where’s the scientific university research proof? And, what does this mean to you as far as gaining more lean mass faster and more efficiently?

So how did the Massive Increases in Muscle Gene Proteins, Muscle DNA and Myogenic Regulatory Factors translate into real world bodybuilding results with NO-Shotgun?

  • Lean Mass - 181.1% greater gains
  • Bench Press Strength - 1108.2% greater gains
  • Leg Press Strength - 53.5% greater gains
  • Myofibrillar Protein - 107.2% greater gains
  • Total Muscle DNA – 103.3% greater gains
  • Myogenic Regulatory Factors – 515.0% greater increase (Myo-D)

Researchers at a prestigious university performed the complicated task of unraveling the secrets of NO-Shotgun. In science lingo, they sought out to determine the effects of four weeks of heavy resistance exercise combined with the oral ingestion of NO-Shotgun supplementation on body composition, muscle strength and mass, and markers of satellite cell activation. If you paid attention in biology class, satellite cells are cells that sit on the periphery of muscle cells; when you damage or exercise your muscles it activates these cells; and that my friends, is a good thing. Why? Because satellite cells make existing muscle fibers BIGGER and in some extreme cases, may even contribute to making new muscle fibers (i.e. muscle fiber hyperplasia). Imagine that. Larger muscle fibers as well as the potential to make mind-blowing gains in muscle fiber number too!

These scientists measured body composition (how much muscle and fat the subjects had), muscle strength, muscle mass, myofibrillar protein content and markers of satellite cell activation [serum IGF-1 (IGF-1), hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), c-met tyrosine kinase (c-met)], proliferation (Myo-D, myf-5), and differentiation (myogenin, MRF-4, total DNA content).

Study volunteers consumed 21 grams/day of placebo [PL] or 21 grams/day of NO-Shotgun (NO). For both the NO-Shotgun and placebo the dosage was ingested 30 minutes prior to each exercise session to take advantage of nutrient timing to maximize the benefits of NO-Shotgun.

On days where no exercise occurred the full dosage of each supplement was ingested in the morning upon waking. Participants lifted weights 4-days per week split into two upper and two lower body workouts per week for a total of four weeks. The human test subjects performed a bi-weekly upper body resistance-training program consisting of nine exercises including bench press, lat pull down, shoulder press, seated rows, shoulder shrugs, chest flies, biceps curl, triceps press down, and abdominal curls twice per week. Test subjects also performed a bi-weekly lower-body program consisting of seven exercises including leg press or squat, back extension, step ups, leg curls, leg extension, calf raises, and abdominal crunches. Participants performed 3 sets of 8-10 repetitions with 75%-80% of their 1-RM (rep max) on each exercise. Rest periods between exercises and sets lasted no longer than three minutes.
