GOLDSTAR Black Annis is a powerful pre-workout based on the ingredients known for their effectiveness in optimal portions closed in the Black Annis Blend. It ensures maximal stimulation and promotion of effort abilities.
In the composition of Black Annis Blend, which contains in each portion 6550 mg, there are 11 active ingredients, demonstrating considerable activity in the human organism:
Beta-alanine - its mechanism of activity is based on the compound, for which it is a precursor, i.e. carnosine. It plays the function of intracellular pH regulator. It buffers acidic influence of metabolic products, maintaining physiological acid-base environment. It is especially important durig workout, when intensive effort causes the creation of lactates, limiting physical abilities. Carnosine neutralizes their influence on myocytes, enabling their more intensive work.
Optimization of intracellular acid-base environment also has positive influence on regeneration abilities. Quicker restoration of initial pH values enables more efficient course of processes leading to muscle tissue anabolism.
Citrulline malate - popular as an individual supplement applied in order to achieve “muscle pump” This feeling is the effect of vasodilatory activity of nitric oxide, the synthesis of which is stimulated by citrulline. It enables the transport of larger amounts of blood to peripheral tissues (and along with them - nutritious substances). The improvement of availability of energy substrates for muscles causes the promotion of efficiency of their work and thanks to this it enables the realization of more intensive training entities.
Moreover, increased blood supply is conducive to the efficiency of regeneration processes. Anticatabolic properties of citrulline are also indicated. Apart from this, malate residue may positively influence the efficiency of energy processes.
N-acetyl-L-tyrosine - a highly bioavailable form of tyrosine, an amino acid, which by being a precursor for many hormones and neurotransmitters, demonstrates wide biological activity. As for the pre-workout properties of the supplement, the most important role of tyrosine is its role as a precursor for catecholamines, adrenaline and noradrenaline, which have large stimulating influence on the organism. Increased supply of the precursor compound is conducive to their synthesis.
Moreover, tyrosine is also present on the pathway of dopamine synthesis, the high concentration of which is responsible for the feeling of motivation and willingness to act, which additionally increases the potential of this supplement as a pre-workout. The role of dopamine in the extrapyramidal system is also important, where it is responsible for neuromotor control.
The activity of tyrosine may be also considered through its influence on metabolism. It is a precursor for thyroxine and triiodothyronine, demonstrating important stimulating effectiveness on the pace of metabolism.
Arginine alpha ketoglutarate - a salt of ketoglutaric acid and arginine. It works synergistically with citrulline contained in the preparation, is responsible for the creation of muscle pump. It stimulates the synthesis of nitric oxide, thanks to which it promotes the increase of the lumen of blood vessels and arterial-venous flow.
Arginine is also used in order to optimize blood pressure. It is indicated that it may demonstrate especially beneficial effect in people with its excessively low values.
Creatine malate - a form of creatine, which is attributed higher stability than the most popular monohydrate. It is one of the best-researched supplements, acknowledged due to its effectiveness and safety of use. As a direct energy substrate, creatine increases the effectiveness of energy extraction from phosphagens, thanks to which it promotes this energy pathway. It is used especially often during short, intensive efforts, such as series of repetitions during strength training, thanks to which the promotion of its activity is reflected in physical abilities.
Moreover, creatine also positively influences the pace of anabolism. First of all, it is an inhibitor of myostatins, a factor limiting the pace of muscle tissue growth, naturally appearing in the organism. Thanks to the reduction of their activity, creatine facilitates anabolic transformations. Secondly, it is able to increase the amount of sarcoplasm in myocytes, thanks to which it optimizes the environment for the reactions which take place there.
Agmatine sulfate - is a metabolite of L-arginine and demonstrates similar activity, thanks to which they work synergistically. By stimulating vascular endothelium for the synthesis of nitric oxide, in increases blood flow through blood vessels, facilitating the transport of nutrients in the organism.
Apart from this, an interesting property of agmatine is its ability to promote sensitivity of the organism to stimulants. It is conducive to the synthesis of stimulating catecholamines, increasing the effectiveness of the preparation. Agmatine is also attributed positive influence on emotional states and cognitive functions.
Methylxanthine anhydrous - also known as theophylline, is a blocker of phosphodiesterase of cyclic adenosine monophosphate, thanks to which it leads to increasing the concentration of cAMP in the cells of the organism. Its effectiveness, however, is more specific than in case of popular stimulants based on phosphodiesterase inhibition. The activity of methylxanthine is noted especially in the muscle layer of bronchial tubes, which leads to its relaxation. This positively influences respiratory efficiency and increases respiratory abilities, which has influence on the total efficiency of the organism.
Geranaburn - oleic extract of geranium which is the source of the iconic stimulating substance, dimethylamylamine, known as DMAA. It is a sympathomimetic with strong influence on the functioning of the central nervous system. It inhibits noradrenaline reuptake, demonstrating important stimulating properties, introducing the organism in the state of maximal stimulation and readiness for intensive effort. The effectiveness of dimethylamylamine is so high that it has been placed on the list of forbidden substances by the World Anti-Doping Agency, which should be borne in mind by people planning participation in competitions under WADA control.
Synephrine – a protoalkaloid with a similar structure to adrenaline and noradrenaline, associated with citrus fruit, especially bitter orange (Citrus aurantium). Synephrine is known mainly for its thermogenic, lipolytic and antioxidant effects and the ability to enhance physical performance and curb appetite. Synephrine increases the utilisation of glucose by stimulating the phosphorylation of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) and boosting glucose transport by glucose transporter type 4 (GLUT4). It also inhibits glucose production in the liver. The overall effects of synephrine result from its role as an agonist of NMU2R in the central nervous system (which explains e.g. appetite suppression) and probably the activation of β3-adrenergic receptors.
Yohimbine – a compound derived from Pausinystalia johimbe, a tree native to West Africa. Yohimbine exerts its effects by interfering with the cholinergic system, specifically due to its ability to inhibit the activity of α2-adrenergic receptors. By increasing adrenaline levels, it provides motivation and activates the breakdown of body fat. By inhibiting cAMP breakdown, it also enhances lipolysis. It boosts fat loss in areas with increased activity of α2-adrenergic receptors (lower abdomen, hips), making the weight loss process more effective. What is more, by boosting nitric oxide production and lowering norepinephrine levels in the cavernous bodies, it helps men get an erection.
Ephedra Viridis leaf extract is a source of active plant alkaloids which have similar effects to the banned ephedrine. They may exert a strong stimulant effect by increasing the release of catecholamines, thereby also speeding up metabolism. High noradrenaline and adrenaline levels increase blood supply to the muscles and ensure more effective utilisation of energy substrates, including your adipose tissue. Because of that, these alkaloids may promote fat burning.
To sum up, Goldstar Black Annis is an intensively working supplement, multidimensionally maximizing effort abilities. It allows to considerably increase the intensity of efforts and quicker achieve the aimed results. It is also an effective remedy to energy and motivation drops.
Supplementation with the product should be started with the lowest dose, which should be gradually increased in case of the organism’s adaptation, until reaching the dose suggested by the producer.
In order to avoid sleep problems, the preparation should not be used in the evening due to the content of stimulants.

Beta-alanine (β-alanine) is a β-amino acid (the same group to which the I-alanine belongs, but with different chemistries). In combination with histidine, it forms β-alanyl-L-histidine (carnosine) - a antioxidant, chelating and buffering compound. Carnosine reduces the level of hydrogen ions in the cell and allows to extend the physical performance and endurance, it affects biological recovery after exercise. Beta-alanine is available in the form of single component and advanced amino-acid supplements, creatine stacks and nitrogen boosters.
Creatine malate (tri-creatine malate, TCM, di-creatine malate) is a combination of one molecule of creatine and three (or two) of molecules of malic acid in the ionized form (malate) in one molecule. It has better solubility in liquids of creatine monohydrate. Malate is involved in energy conversion enhancing effect of creatine in this regard. With proper use of creatine malate, there is an increase in exercise capacity of the body (strength and endurance), acceleration - although slower than provide other compounds creatine for better quality - of increase in lean body mass, provides faster and better biological regeneration after exercise. To have a fast saturation of the muscles with creatine, products containing insulin should be used (carbohydrates and proteins) or insulin-mimetic (and the substances of similar ALA, D-pinitol, taurine). Creatine malate is available in the form of powders and capsules (mono-preparation supplements and creatine stacks), for purchase at muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: Usual recommendation in sports, depends on the form of supplement, the type of exercises and weight, uses one of the following creatine dosage models:
- cyclic supplementation: 5-10g per day in 1-3 portions during the day, 2-5g per dose. Cycle length approx. 4-12 weeks
- Constant supplementation: 0,03-0,05g per kg of body weight for an extended period of time.
N-acetyl-L-tyrosine - acetylated form of tyrosine (an endogenous amino acid) improves the solubility and bioavailability of active ingredients. It can be used in lower doses than those taken as free tyrosine. It has a higher availability to the nerve tissue, reduces the feeling of fatigue, improves the exercise capacity psycho (psychostimulant), and, it is a additive to thermogenic effect preparations. It is used in medicine (increases levels of neurotransmitters including dopamine and norepinephrine) and sports dietary supplementation, in pre- and post-workout supplements, as well as fat burners, no-boosters and pre-workout creatine stacks and supplements and energizing beverages.
Dosage: In divided doses ranging from 100-300 mg per day.
Arginine is an exogenous amino acid, it is a component of dietary proteins, not always synthesized in the human body in necessary quantity, so it is necessary to deliver it in the form of synthetics. It takes part in the biosynthesis agmatine, creatine and nitrogen oxides. The use of supplements containing arginine before workout increases the exercise capacity (strength, endurance). Used after considerable effort intensifies the transfer of energy and building compounds and intensifies the process of recovery. Used at bedtime in combination with lysine and ornithine enhances the synthesis of growth hormone. takes part in the intrasystemic synthesis of creatine. Arginine (as a precursor of ornithine) is involved in the urea cycle, increases the flow of blood in the circulatory system, increases sexual potency (in a short time after application). It affects the body's immunity preventing infections, and lowers blood pressure. In supplements – usually as alpha-ketoglutarate.
Agmatine sulfate is a compound of agmatine, and hence the substance resulting from the processing of arginine.
It meets the body's range of functions, including increases levels of nitric oxide responsible for vasodilation and thus improves blood circulation. It stimulates the release of growth hormone and testosterone. It increases the amount of nutrients delivered to the muscles, and normalizes blood glucose levels, thereby mimicking the operation characteristic of insulin; improves the functioning of the central nervous system; fights free radicals; reduces depot body fat, and also affects the metabolism of calcium, thus providing a better functioning of the heart, brain and muscles.
Dosage: 500-1500 mg, the best half an hour before training.
Synephrine is an organic compound from harvested on an industrial scale the fruit of bitter orange (Citrus aurantium). Citrus auratuim extract (extract of bitter orange) is widely used in the process of weight reduction, both among athletes, active individuals, as well as leading the so-called. "sedentary lifestyle". It is a source of synephrine and octopamine, which in combination with caffeine and polyphenols contained in green tea affect lipolysis, releasing fatty acids adipocytes, by causing increased energy expenditure, burning them in the sources of vital energy cells (mitochondria). It is popular on the banning of ephedra by WADA (dangerous for the body). Contraindication to use preparations against people with hypertension. In the sports supplementation is available in body mass reduction and sculpting programs, as a thermogenic, creatine stacks and nitrogen boosters ingredient.
Dosage: No standards unit consumption. In the supplementation - customarily - 10-30 mg
Yohimbine is a natural component of the indole alkaloid yohimbine, ingredient of bark of yohimbe (Corynanthe yohimbe), a recognized aphrodisiac and increasing potency mean. It stimulates the nervous system by blocking the adrenergic receptors alpha-2. Tree bark of yohimbe is also a source of alkaloids (isoyohimbine, aloyohimbine), which can enhance its performance. With the right dosage, taken with caffeine on an empty stomach and a longer period before taking a meal, it enhances the process of lipolysis due to increased levels of norepinephrine in the body.
In the sports supplementation it helps to reduce body fat (especially in programs of weight control and its composition), taken before physical activity. It comes in the form of mono-preparation supplements, extracts from yohimbe tree bark, synthetics and in supplements with thermogenic effect. Available for purchase at muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: No specific dosage standards. Some sources give optimal dose of 0.2 mg / kg of body weight (usually used at 5-10 mg per day).
