High Risk Kazakhstani Virus Lab Under Siege 

Kazakhstan's former head of counter-intelligence and anti-terrorism, Karim Masimov, has been arrested on charges of attempting to overthrow the Kazak government. Authorities say security forces killed 26 demonstrators during the two week period of civil unrest, but independent sources estimate a total closer to 160 deaths.

A U.S. funded BSL-3 laboratory in Kazakhstan that studies viral strains, including COVID-19, is reported to have fallen into the hands of protestors during the uprising. Kazakhstani officials have denied reports that the controversial $102 million dollar laboratory was compromised — however, Russian media outlets reported a potential leak of deadly pathogens — similar to what some think may have occurred in 2019 at China’s virology laboratory in Wuhan, which set off a global pandemic. 

Several Kazakhstani government offices, an airport and multiple buildings of interest were overtaken briefly by government-opposed demonstrators during the two week incursion. Official Russian news agencies pointed out multiple social media reports claiming the Level-3 lab was taken over by unidentified people, including individuals wearing chemical protection suits, near the deadly viral laboratory. 

Reports have cited well-coordinated armed groups alongside protesters. Photos have emerged of weapons seized in the riots, and nearly 6,000 individuals have been detained; many being foreign nationals. It is not clear at this time where the alleged foreign provocateurs are from.

The laboratory was built in 2017 for the study of dangerous infection outbreaks, including the study of Covid-19 and other more deadly viruses. The laboratory was funded in-part by American tax dollars, but U.S. personnel were not involved in the lab’s work at the time, according to Kazakhstani officials.  

According to a 2013 article from National Geographic published prior to the lab’s completion,

“The facility, funded by the United States Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) and the Nunn-Lugar Cooperative Threat Reduction Program, will have the additional benefit of giving stable employment to scientists who might otherwise be tempted to sell their high-level and potentially destructive knowledge to hostile groups. The facility will also be a secure place to archive existing disease strains.”

The report further continues,

“The threat of theft is real: In 2002, for example, authorities arrested a man who entered a biodefense facility near Almaty (Kazakhstan), apparently intending to steal the pathogens inside, according to a paper from the United States Institute of Peace.”

Not only may the world be at risk of another viral lab leak, but we could be in for much worse if risky gain-of-function research and bio-warfare development continues this way. Covid-19 killed millions globally and nearly crippled our economy, despite an extremely low mortality rate for healthy individuals and young people. 

Something significantly more deadly and exponentially more contagious could escape, be intentionally released, or weaponized if we do not immediately increase our global diligence. Any one of these laboratories could contain a deadly pathogen which could wipe our entire human existence off the planet. 

In 1979, the Soviet Ministry of Defence took a young scientist named Vladimir Pasechnik under their wings, providing him with unlimited funding to begin a biological research facility to study viruses and develop vaccines. Pasechnik began to realize the horrific reality after several years of his Soviet-funded bio-research. The lab he created called the Institute of Ultra Pure Biochemical Preparations, was not developing vaccines as Pasechnik had been led to believe. 

Pasechnik and his team were unknowingly part of a program called “Problem F.” The specific goal of this Soviet funded program was to develop and weaponize pathogens for use against humans. In other words, extremely deadly and highly secretive bio-warfare development. 

After defecting to the United Kingdom in 1989, Pasechnik told British intelligence officers that he created “something so horrible that he couldn't sleep at night,” an aerosolized, antibiotic-resistant strain of the Bubonic plague — a weaponized version of the most horrific and deadly disease in all of human history. 

Upon dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, the weaponized plague virus and a number of other dangerous pathogen research remained behind with little or no security. Many Soviet researchers lost their employment and left with nothing. To avoid starvation, some laboratory scientists allegedly sold off critical bio-weaponry secrets across Central Asia and the Middle East, while the remaining research materials were distributed to various labs around the world. 

There is a serious biosecurity threat in former Soviet Union countries like Kazakhstan, where the Level-3 viral lab may have been temporarily seized. The Russian government has at least five ultra-secretive “anti-plague” institutes in the region, with Kazakhstan being a contributor. 

Officials in the Zhambyl region of northern Kazakhstan say there are plans in place to build a Level-4 laboratory and underground storage for the collection of deadly and highly volatile virus strains in 2025. 

With the Biden Administration sending American troops to Eastern Europe, which may provoke a war between Ukraine and Russia, we may be at a higher risk than we are aware. 

Not only could the president be provoking an unnecessary and deadly physical conflict for U.S. and allied soldiers, this conflict could lead to Russian retaliation in the form of a weaponized virus. Another possible outcome is that the former Soviet region may become unstable if war breaks out, leaving the high level virology labs and the contained pathogens at risk of being leaked or stolen, creating a potential pathway to another global pandemic. 

Nitric Oxide Boosters: What Are They & What Benefits Can I Expect? 

There are few things more satisfying than seeing extreme muscle pumps and road-map veins in the mirror after an intense weight lifting session. Those fully engorged, skin splitting muscles and bulging veins may be aesthetically pleasing - but there is so much more to it than just that.

Commonly referred to informally as "Pump Products," nitric oxide boosters, or vasodilators, allow your blood vessels to widen to enhance blood flow to your muscles. This is particularly beneficial during physical exertion such as weight lifting where the muscles are working toward maximum capacity. 

Widening of your blood vessels, or vasodilation, allows an increased amount of oxygen, nutrients, and glucose to reach and to be utilized by the muscles. This also allows waste by-products such as lactic acid to be removed more quickly, helping to delay the onset of fatigue.

Endurance performance requires the use of a high amount of oxygen. With more blood, and therefore oxygen, being delivered into the muscles during vasodilation, your body will be able to work harder and longer without tiring out. Just like a fire can't burn without oxygen-- your body cannot perform without it either. The more oxygen, the bigger the blaze! 

Fatigue is a major enemy to any athlete or exercise enthusiast. Muscular fatigue is a limiting factor during any form of exercise; from endurance to power lifting. In weight lifting, every rep counts. As you push your body to its limits, oxygen levels become depleted and lactic acid builds up in the muscle tissue. Lactic acid is what causes the burning feeling when you are nearing your maximum physical output and causes you to stop. The ability to remove lactic acid more quickly from your muscles allows you to go longer, push harder, and reach more reps. Working harder nearing your body's maximum output will also cause a significant increase in core temperature which is another performance limiting factor. Having dilated vessels and better blood flow, your body will use less energy to cool itself and better maintain an optimal core temperature.  

Glucose is one of the major sources of energy for our bodies. As you may know, glucose is essentially sugar which we use like a car uses gasoline. While there are indeed other methods our bodies use for energy production, this is the most common. We take in glucose from the food we consume (or drink) which then breaks down in our digestive systems into several different byproducts; one being glucose. Vasodilation allows the blood to carry more glucose and allows our muscles to absorb more of this fuel to be put to use and thus extending the time until fatigue. An added benefit of increased glucose metabolism is that there will be less sugar remaining to convert into fat.   

Recovery time between workout sessions is another limiting factor in reaching maximum results. Nitric oxide boosters facilitate quicker recovery times by allowing more usable oxygen and nutrients to reach your muscles. Following any workout, it is an important part of the recovery process for our muscles to receive as many nutrients as possible. Vasodilation goes beyond the workout, into the post-workout by increasing the absorption rate of these necessary nutrients which we take in with either food or drink (post-workout meals or protein drinks are crucial and your body will better utilize the consumed nutrients during vasodilation). A reduction in recovery time will allow your muscles to repair more quickly and to train more often without reaching the point of over-training (which is something that can severely limit your results).  

Now that all the technical stuff is out of the way-- onto my favorite feature of N.O. boosters. Increased blood flow, widening of the blood vessels and veins, and the ability to push harder and longer with more reps lets your muscles swell and inflate to their maximum potential for absolutely intense pumps! So get ready to take some gym-selfies because your muscles will look larger, fuller, and more dense than ever! Who wouldn't want that?  

To sum it all up, nitric oxide boosters/vasodilators, aka Pump products, are extremely effective in maximizing your performance and reducing recovery time, as well as allowing your muscles reach their maximum fullness. Any athlete, body builder, or even a beginner level weight lifter will see major benefits from these type of products. I personally use one (or two) before every single workout. They are safe to stack with any supplements and work especially well when paired with a good pre-workout formula. (*For anyone who doesn't like or can't use stimulant based pre-workouts, using a pump product or two is an awesome alternative).  

So what are you waiting for? Now that the details and benefits have been laid out, I highly encourage you to consider whether adding a new pump product to your routine will help you reach your goals more quickly and maximize your potential which will lead to phenomenal results. I know it will-- but the decision is yours!

SARMs Alternatives (With Similar Results)

The sports supplement world is constantly evolving. One of the first examples in written history of “supplements” being used is during the ancient Greek Olympics. Athletes were said to have included a particular body part of a male sheep into their diets in order to increase their testosterone levels before competition. The science is still out on whether it had actual benefits or simply created a placebo effect. Fortunately today, the science is in. The sports supplement industry combines chemistry, pharmacology and experience to continuously formulate new and better products.

Currently SARMs are often still considered one of those types of “new and better” products. They have become widely used in the sports and bodybuilding worlds as well as for next-level consumers interested in increased strength and performance. However, there are alternate options for consumers who are either unsure about SARMs, unable to find reputable SARMs, or simply interested in new alternatives in order to reach his or her goals.

Commonly known and sold SARMs on today's market include LGD-4033 (Ligandrol), MK-677 (Ibutamorin), GW-501516 (Cardarine), Ostarine, RAD-140, and S4. SARMs is an acronym for: Selective Androgen Receptor Modulators. Each of these individual SARMs works on a select set of androgen receptors in your body to produce a range of results. SARMs such as LGD-4033 and RAD-140 are most often used for muscle, size, and strength gains; while SARMs such as GW-501516 are used more often as a fat cutting, endurance, and as a recomping agent. Other SARMs work toward muscle recovery, muscle sculpting, toning, and more. 

With the future of SARMs being unforeseeable – no one can say with full certainty which of these products will be able to remain on the market for much longer due to newly introduced scrutinization by regulatory agencies. Fortunately there are products on the market today which will very likely long outlive the lifespan of SARMs while also producing similar results. Difficulty lies in finding which products will produce these similar results of gaining strength, size, muscle definition, fat burning, or recovery. Fortunately-- I'm here to give you a quick breakdown and insight into that matter.

Breakthrough Labz produces a line of products which nearly replicate the results which can be found with SARMs. The bonus included with that is Breakthrough Labz is well known to use top quality ingredients at proper dosages without using proprietary blends on the ingredient lists – which means all the information is listed clearly on the labels as to which ingredients and what amounts are in each dose. It is also beneficial that you can find all these products available through one company to avoid wasting time trying to scour the internet for the best supplements which actually work.

I will now delve into which products available today nearly replicate the results of SARMs and which SARMs they mimic. Peaks by Breakthrough Labz is the best choice if you are looking for results mirroring those of LGD-4033. Peaks is effective for increased strength and growth, increased gym aggression, and aiding in fat loss during cutting cycles. Peaks can be and is often paired with a testosterone boosting supplement like Breakthrough Limits, which is one of the most highly rated test boosters available to consumers. Breakthrough Peaks is a great advantage for those looking to increase lean muscle and definition.

Ripped by Breakthrough Labz is the alternative to GW-501516 both of which are used for fat loss and endurance. Ripped was developed to increase metabolism and accelerate fat loss without hormone related side effects. Ripped can be stacked with fat burning agents such as Breakthrough Heat or Breakthrough Barriers to increase results.

In order to achieve results similar to RAD-140 – turn to Genetix by Breakthrough Labz. Genetix was formulated to increase muscular growth, strength, endurance – and to boost mood while being a fully loaded mass builder. If you have ever used RAD-140 and liked the results, you should love Genetix -or- if you simply want to pack on more mass and muscle; this is likely to be the product for you.

To find a recomping agent which will have a similar outcome as Ostarine; turn to Heights by Breakthrough Labz. For those looking to increase muscle mass, increase strength and reduce muscle catabolism while reducing myostatin levels – Heights is a perfect choice. This will amplify muscle hypertrophy and protein synthesis to accelerate your results.

One key factor in weightlifting and bodybuilding (in addition to general health and wellness) which is often not emphasized enough is proper sleep, rest and recovery. When MK-677 entered the bodybuilding scene; many found it to be a great supplement to aid in sleep and muscular recovery by stimulating natural human growth hormone production. Introduced by Breakthrough Labz is a product called Ignight. This supplement was developed to promote growth hormone production, improve muscle recovery and to increase quality and duration of sleep along side increased mind and body relaxation. If you are looking for an alternative to MK-677, Breakthrough's Ignight is a fantastic choice.

When you have packed on the desired amount of mass and muscle; getting toned and defined is the next step in the process. As means for achieving lean and hard muscles, S4 has been the go to for SARMs. An amazing analogue to S4 for increasing muscle hardness and lean mass is Chisel by Breakthrough Labz. Chisel was designed to achieve statuesque, sculpted muscles by accelerating fat loss, maintaining muscle while in a caloric deficit, and increasing muscular hardness and definition. Whether you are looking to find a replacement for S4, or are just looking for major muscular definition and impressive increases in tone-- Breakthrough's Chisel is what you're looking for.

In the always evolving world of sports supplements, it is important to keep on top of the latest and greatest products if you want to reach top results. Use this guide to find your SARMs alternatives and hardcore sports supplements that actually work.
