How we evolved the Pump Product game – PRO PUMP EVO

“The Pump” is hands down thee best feeling you can get in the gym, just ask Arnie!

CNP Pro Pump has been delivering great workouts for over a year, but like time we never stand still. So we did what CNP do best and formulated something untouchable, something once tried, you wont be able to train without it.

Harnessing the benefits of the original formula, but bringing in some more concentrated dosages, clinically studied ingredients and an improved product function. Pro Pump Evo is designed to optimise blood flow, increase feelings of energy and elongate time to fatigue, to give your body Arnie-esk muscle pumps, and take your muscle fibres to levels of activity they’ve never been to before.

Ingredients Explained

Citrulline Malate – 6000mg

Citrulline is well-known as a powerful Nitric Oxide boosting ingredient, which acts to increase vasodilation, facilitate blood flow and enhance nutrient delivery to the muscles. Citrulline works by being metabolised to release Arginine which regulates the production of Nitric Oxide. This is responsible for dilating the blood vessels, allowing more blood (and the contents there of) to travel to the working muscles, creating that feeling of the pump. Each time you train, your muscles produce bi-products that draw water into the muscle tissue. The effect on your muscle cells in the long run, is increased muscle growth potential by increasing muscle protein synthesis.


Dual-Source Arginine – 4000mg

The Dual-Source Arginine within Pro Pump Evo is made up of Arginine Nitrate and Arginine Alpha ketoglutarate in a 50-50 split. Arginine works much in the same way as Citrulline, serving as a precursor for the vasodilator, nitric oxide, L-arginine promotes endurance and muscle conditioning. An added bonus to Arginine is that it mops up free radicals which means it can help support the immune system and facilitate recovery.


Glycerol Monostearate – 2800mg

Glycerol acts to hyperhydrate the body, drawing water into the muscle cells to give a feeling of fullness. Bodybuilders have historically used it before shows to give muscle a fuller more defined appearance. Hyperhydration can elongate the time taken for your body to fatigue, especially in hot conditions. This is a different mechanism to the pump that Nitric oxide brings, meaning you will hit the muscle from multiple angles to achieve that fully pumped feeling.


Carnosyn™ – 2000mg

Carnosyn™ is a clinically studied, patented form of the highly beneficial ingredient Beta Alanine. It has long been used by athletes of all backgrounds to make use of its muscle buffering effects, through decreasing acidosis. This has subsequently shown to increase the working capacity and strength of a muscle, whilst delaying the time to fatigue during training sessions.

Beta Alanine combines with L-Histidine in the body to form the dipeptide Carnosine within the muscle. The main benefit with this is that it facilitates the buffering of hydrogen ions, which are produced as Lactic Acid levels rise. Lactic Acid is a biproduct of Anaerobic Energy production, so intense exercise will see great benefits from Carnosyn™.

When there is a high concentration of hydrogen ions in the muscle, the environment becomes more acidic. When the acidity increases, muscle contraction becomes inhibited. The muscle loses the ability to contract with the force it would have done prior to fatigue, so by buffering these hydrogen ions, carnosine keeps your muscles contracting stronger and for longer. This addition to the Pro Pump Evo formula, compliments the Sodium Bicarbonate to keep you working hard and lifting heavy deep into your session.


VASO6™ – 300mg

VASO6™ is an advanced oligomer, in the form of a botanical extract of green tea, specifically characterised by fractions and peaks, which significantly increase the production of Nitric Oxide within the body. This causes vasodilation of the blood vessels which allows you to achieve Arnie’s favourite thing in the world… ‘The Pump’.

Endothelial cells line the inside of blood vessels. Endothelial-dependent relaxation by means of nitric oxide is what we’re trying to achieve. When the blood vessels relax, they widen, allowing more blood to flow to the muscles. Blood delivers everything in terms of nutrients, amino acids etc to the muscles, so the easier the delivery, the better the result.

The Nitric Oxide that we want to be produced is done so by activating the enzyme eNOS. To further optimize Nitric Oxide bio-availability, it’s best to keep Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) at bay. It’s notable that one reason why muscles fail is excess free radicals. One way of helping neutralize this effect is using VASO6™.

The specific fractions that are harnessed by VASO6™ activate eNOS which in turn creates higher levels of Nitric Oxide. This relaxes the cells within our blood vessels, allowing for more nutrient-rich blood to flow to where it is needed. This ultimately shuttles glucose, insulin and other nutrients to metabolic targets, giving the muscles what they need to perform.

CNP Pro Pump Evo is the first UK supplement to make use of this revolutionary ingredient, getting back to CNP’s roots of being an innovator within the Muscle, Strength and Power sector.


Vitamin C 160mg – (200% RV)

Vitamin C is a well-known Vitamin and the benefits it brings are vast. Not only does it act to support the immune system, but it can also improve digestive absorption. The main reason it’s included within the Pro Pump Evo formulation is its synergistic effect with VASO6™. The co-factor to eNOS is tetrahydrobiopterin. This means that its presence is essential for eNOS to work. Tetrahydrobiopterin can be protected from oxidation by saturating Vitamin C levels, creating more optimal conditions for Nitric Oxide synthesis. This is why Pro Pump Evo contains 200% RV of Vitamin C, giving your body the best environment in the body to achieve ‘the pump’.


Vitamin B12 – 25ug (1000% RV)

The main benefits of Vitamin B12 are to reduce tiredness and fatigue. It plays an important role in energy metabolism and also offers support to the immune system to complete the Pro Pump Evo formulation.
