How does JUMPSTART work?
JUMPSTART is a cream that uses Transdermal Delivery Technology to deliver Ribose, Creatine, Carnitine and Caffeine through the skin directly into muscles to power them for intense physical activities, thereby enhancing physical performance.

The active ingredients are a powerful source of instant energy that multiplies the ability of the muscles to work harder and longer, giving an immediate and sustained boost to the user’s speed, strength and endurance during intense physical activities.  JUMPSTART also helps to dramatically enhance muscle recovery after the activity.

Who should use JUMPSTART?
JUMPSTART has been specially formulated for sportsmen, athletes and anyone who wants to maximise performance during demanding physical activities, such as marathons, competitions and IPPT.

JUMPSTART can also be used as a training companion to enhance muscle recovery throughout the training regime.

(IPPT stands for Individual Physical Proficiency Test, a test used by the Singapore Armed Forces, the Singapore Police Force and the Singapore Civil Defense Force in assessing the physical fitness of their personnel.)

How is JUMPSTART different from other energy products?
JUMPSTART is the one and only product that has a unique combination of Ribose, Creatine, Carnitine and Caffeine to give a powerful, instant and sustained energy boost to fatigued muscles.  These active ingredients are clinically proven to be effective, and are even more efficacious because they are delivered directly into fatigued muscles via Lynk Biotech’s Transdemal Delivery Technology.  This means that the ingredients are not broken down in the gastrointestinal tract and the user would also not experience any side effects which may come with oral intake (e.g. stomach discomfort and insulin effect).

Many sportsmen use energy products containing glucose before intense activities.  However, when their bodies are unable to absorb sufficient oxygen, the process of glycolysis of glucose in their bodies to form ATP (the universal energy currency in our bodies) causes the by-product lactic acid to accumulate in their muscles. This results in muscle fatigue.  In contrast, ATP produced from ribose does not release lactic acid.

What are the active ingredients in JUMPSTART and what function do they have?
The active ingredients in JUMPSTART are Ribose, Creatine, Carnitine and Caffeine.

Ribose is the key active ingredient of JUMPSTART. As ribose is a building block of ATP (the universal energy currency in our bodies), ATP production can be increased significantly if ribose is continuously supplied to the body in high concentration. Unfortunately, ribose synthesis in our bodies (through oxidative carboxylation of glucose) is very slow. Moreover, ribose exists as riboflavin (vitamin B2) in our food, which is not easily available and likely to be destroyed when food is cooked.  Hence, supplementation is essential if a large amount of ribose is needed.

Another major benefit of ribose is its amazing ability to enhance muscle recovery by 3-4 folds. Research has shown that ribose helps to restore ATP to pre-activity levels in only about 12 hours as compared to about 36 hours without ribose supplementation.

Creatine is present in JUMPSTART to act as a carrier of phosphate ions.  The latter are building blocks of ATP.

Carnitine, another important ingredient of JUMPSTART, is required for the transport of fatty acids into mitochondria, the “powerhouse” structures within cells, for the generation of energy.

Caffeine is a naturally occurring stimulant found in tea, coffee, cocoa and some other plant-based foods. It is also commonly used as an additive in food, beverages and supplements. Caffeine can improve an athlete’s endurance in sports by decreasing muscle fatigue and increasing mental alertness.

Has a trial been conducted on JUMPSTART?
A trial carried out with committed long-distance runners showed 0.8 - 24.8% improvement in their average best timing when they used JUMPSTART before their runs.

Another trial conducted on inclined pull-ups showed 9.4 - 61.1% improvement in the number of pull-ups achieved with use of JUMPSTART.

A resounding 80% of all trial participants conveyed that they observed faster muscle recovery with JUMPSTART.

Is it legal to use JUMPSTART for competitions ?
JUMPSTART does not contain any banned substance.  You may refer to WADA, the World Anti-Doping Agency, for a list of substances prohibited for sports (www.wada-ama.org).
What are the directions to use JUMPSTART?
Use JUMPSTART before an activity for an immediate and sustained energy boost.
  • Apply JUMPSTART liberally onto main muscles used for the activity e.g. For running, apply onto quadriceps, calves and hamstrings; For pull-ups, apply onto biceps, triceps, shoulders and upper back.
  • Spread evenly over the skin.
  • Preferably, apply 1-2 hours before the activity.

To accelerate muscle recovery after an activity, apply JUMPSTART liberally onto muscles immediately after the activity.

Will I feel any sensation on my skin after applying JUMPSTART?
You may feel a hot sensation on your skin upon application of JUMPSTART or when you perspire.  This is because of Capsaicin, an ingredient we’ve added into JUMPSTART to help warm up muscles and increase blood circulation.
Does JUMPSTART give any side effect?
JUMPSTART is a safe product and has no known side effect.  Do not use JUMPSTART if you are allergic to Ribose, Creatine, Carnitine, Caffeine or Capsaicin.

If you experience any adverse reaction (e.g. feeling of discomfort; skin allergy), immediately wash the areas that you have applied the cream to with soap and water, and notify us at +65 6745-1550 or sports@lynkbiotech.com.

How should I keep JUMPSTART?
Store below 30oC but do not store in the fridge.  Protect from light
Are there precautions relating to JUMPSTART?
JUMPSTART is for external use only. Avoid contact with eyes, sensitive areas or broken skin. Keep out of reach of children.
