Our Pre-Workout Plus formula gives you energy on demand
This proprietary Pre-Workout Plus formula contains 150mg of caffeine to increase alertness and response and incorporates Citruline to increase nitric oxide production and blood flow and both Creatine and PeakATP® to increase your strength and power and allow you to maintain your peak performance for longer.
PeakATP (450 mg)
ATP is Adenosine 5’-Triphosphate (ATP) Disodium. PeakATP is synthesized to mimic naturally occurring ATP. PeakATP delivers ATP directly to working muscles.
ATP is your body’s universal energy currency. ATP is a signaling molecule for the nerves, muscles, and blood vessels.During exercise you require 1,000 times more ATP. PeakATP empowers you to do more, achieve more and reduce fatigue than you could with natural stores of ATP.
PeakATP is acceptable for use in sports, currently not banned by any athletic body. It boosts Strength and Power, Promotes lean body mass.
PeakATP supports recovery by elevating the muscle calcium pool. It improves blood flow with no o Jitters, itching and the uncomfortable feeling you get with other pre-workouts.
Beet Root Concentrate, providing 1.5% natural nitrate. RedNite is free of nitrites and synthetic nitrates. RedNite contains 25x more nitrate than beet root.
Nitrites increase your body's natural resistance to fatigue. Enhances force production, neuromuscular advantages during resistance exercise and hence may boost exercise tolerance. It may reduce oxygen costs at sub-maximal performance.
Citrulline (6000 mg)
Citruline is a Non-Essential Amino Acid. Citrulline changes to Arginine in the kidneys (the amino acid passes through the GI system unlike Arginine). Making citrulline more effective than arginine as only a fraction of arginine intake passes the gut.
Citrulline acts as a substrate to recycle arginine which boosts nitric oxide production, improving blood flow meaning it supports recovery from exercise. Studies have included 3-9 grams/ day. A natural source of Citrulline is watermelon and it is typically challenging to achieve high levels from the commonly available American diet.
Creatine Monohydrate (2000mg)
Creatine Monohydrate is one of the most studied and researched compounds in effective concentrations between 2-5mg. It occurs naturally in fish, meat, and animal products and is shown to maximize muscular performance.
It reduces muscle fatigue and reduces the production of lactic acid. It supports PeakATP by increasing ATP in the muscle (Creatine is stored in the muscles and through a series of reactions produces ATP). Exercise reduces ATP stores and greatly increases the demand for ATP.
Creatine is known to increase lean muscle mass when used in conjunction with a resistance training program. It improves strength/power/performance in repetitive bouts of brief, highly-intensity physical activity (e.g., sprints, jumping, resistance training) by increasing intramuscular creatine levels.
Caffeine (150 mg)
Caffeine is naturally occurring in coffee, tea, and cocoa. 100-200mg/intake, up to 400mg/day is supported in research. However 1,000mg/day may be toxic.
Coffee contains about 100 mg/cup. A typical soda provides 40mg/ can.
Caffeine promotes alertness and wakefulness, and is known to enhance cognitive performance, mental sharpness/alertness. It elevates focus relieves fatigue, promotes endurance, and enhances motor skill performance. Caffeine in the moderate doses may also enhance mood.
Caffeine also enhances physical performance, stamina and recovery. It is ergogenic and may feel like a stimulant without the itching often associated with pre-workout powders.
What isn't in it
In the body, the amino acid arginine changes into nitric oxide (NO). Nitric oxide is a powerful neurotransmitter that helps blood vessels relax and also improves circulation. Dietary Arginine is digested in the GI system with only low levels making it to blood and muscle. Citrulline is more effective at delivering arginine to the blood and muscle than arginine supplements.
Some studies suggest that upon regular intake athletes may be able to work out longer with supplementation of Beta-alanine. A study with 400-meter sprinters suggested no improvement in race times.
Beta-alanine requires a longer term of intake to make measurable blood level improvements of carnosine. Skin tingling is key side effect that many report as being undesirable.
