When we set out to design a brand new pre-workout we took into account all of the things most people want, like sustained energy, no crash, and of course delicious flavors.
But that's not all! In fact, we took it a step further and added some incredible brain-enhancing nootropics too.
What follows is a detailed breakdown of all the ingredients and benefits from this incredible addition to our lineup of products.
PRE is a functional pre-workout that gives you a combination of intense, laser-like focus and reduces the feelings of lethargy and fatigue. PRE provides powerful antioxidants and helps limit free radical production after intense workouts.
Unlike other pre-workouts, PRE provides synergistic effects from the combination of powerful ingredients backed by evidence-based research.
PRE is designed for men and women in search of an intermediate stimulant based pre-workout, one scoop provides sustainable energy, laser focus, and workout crushing endurance. Experienced users can add a second scoop to get maximum potency for intense results.
Benefits of PRE
Vitamin B3(as niacinamide): Niacinamide is one form of vitamin B3 (niacin) that plays an important role in energy metabolism and cell health. Niacinamide is found primarily in animal-based products and is the preferred form of vitamin B3 for treating pellagra.
Niacinamide may benefit those with certain skin conditions and reduce the risk of melanoma in high-risk individuals. It may also be useful for people with chronic kidney disease and, to a lesser extent, type 1 diabetes.
Vitamin B6 (as pyridoxine HCl): Vitamin B6, also known as pyridoxine, is a water-soluble vitamin that your body needs for several functions. It’s significant to protein, fat and carbohydrate metabolism and the creation of red blood cells and neurotransmitters.
Your body cannot produce vitamin B6, so you must obtain it from foods or supplements. Consuming adequate amounts of vitamin B6 is important for optimal health and may even prevent and treat chronic diseases.
Here are 9 health benefits of vitamin B6, backed by science:
Vitamin B12(as methylcobalamin): Vitamin B12, also known as cobalamin, is an essential vitamin that your body needs but cannot produce. It’s found naturally in animal products but also added to certain foods and available as an oral supplement or injection.
Vitamin B12 has many roles in your body. It supports the normal function of your nerve cells and is needed for red blood cell formation and DNA synthesis. Vitamin B12 may benefit your body in impressive ways, such as by boosting your energy, improving your memory and helping prevent heart disease.
Here are 9 health benefits of vitamin B12, all based on science:
Vitamin B9(as Folic Acid): Folic acid is the synthetic form of folate, a water-soluble vitamin also known as vitamin B9. It does not occur naturally in food but is frequently added to supplements and refined grain products, such as bread and cereals. Since folic acid is different from natural folate, it must be converted into an active form before your body can use it. Adequate vitamin B9 levels have been linked to various health benefits, including:
Sodium(as Chloride): Sodium chloride (NaCl), also known as salt, is an essential compound our body uses to:
L-Citrulline: L-Citrulline is an amino acid. It is turned into L-arginine in the kidneys after supplementation, which means L-citrulline supplementation is a more effective method of increasing L-arginine levels in the body than L-arginine supplementation.
Taking L-Citrulline increases plasma levels of ornithine and arginine and improves the ammonia recycling process and nitric oxide metabolism. Consequently, it is used in areas where nitric oxide is relevant, namely erectile dysfunction caused by high blood pressure, athletic performance, and cardiovascular health.
There are very few foods that have notable amounts of citrulline. Benefits to your health from L-Citrulline include:
Beta-Alanine: Beta-alanine is a non-essential amino acid. Unlike most amino acids, it is not used by your body to synthesize proteins. Instead, together with histidine, it produces carnosine. Carnosine is then stored in your skeletal muscles.
Carnosine reduces lactic acid accumulation in your muscles during exercise, which leads to improved athletic performance. In your muscles, histidine levels are normally high and beta-alanine levels low, which limits the production of carnosine.
Supplementing with beta-alanine has been shown to elevate carnosine levels in muscles by 80%.
This is how carnosine acts during exercise:
Since beta-alanine supplements increase carnosine levels, they help your muscles reduce their acid levels during exercise. This lessens overall fatigue.
L-Tyrosine: Tyrosine is an amino acid that is naturally produced in the body from another amino acid called phenylalanine.
Tyrosine is a popular dietary supplement used to improve alertness, attention, and focus. It produces important brain chemicals that help nerve cells communicate and may even regulate mood.
It is also found in chicken, turkey, fish, dairy products and most other high-protein foods.
Tyrosine helps make several important substances, including:
Supplementing with tyrosine is thought to increase levels of the neurotransmitter’s dopamine, adrenaline, and norepinephrine.
By increasing these neurotransmitters, it may help improve memory and performance in stressful situations. Studies show that tyrosine can help maintain your mental capacity when taken before a stressful activity.
Kre-Alkalyn: This a buffered form of creatine that is touted to remain more stable in the stomach, is not degraded to creatinine and thereby has greater bioavailability. This is accomplished by adding alkaline powder (e.g. soda ash, magnesium glycerol phosphate, bicarbonate) to creatine in order to adjust the pH to a range between 7-14
Beet Root Extract (Beta Vulgaris): Beetroot (Beta vulgaris) is a root vegetable also known as red beet, table beet, garden beet, or just beet. Packed with essential nutrients, beetroots are a great source of fiber, folate (vitamin B9), manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C. Beetroots and beetroot juice have been associated with numerous health benefits, including improved blood flow, lower blood pressure, and increased exercise performance. Many of these benefits are due to their high content of inorganic nitrates. Here are some benefits of beetroot for heart health and exercise performance.
Lion’s Mane extract (Hericeum Erinaceus): Lion’s mane mushrooms contain bioactive substances that have beneficial effects on the body, especially the brain, heart, and gut.
Here are 9 health benefits of lion’s mane mushrooms and their extracts:
Caffeine Anhydrous: Caffeine increases focus and mental stimulation. One of the main mechanisms is by increasing adrenaline. Adrenaline is a powerful stimulatory chemical, but not the only mechanism of caffeine.
The main mechanism that makes caffeine unique is adenosine activity (as a receptor antagonist), which essentially helps increase alertness and reduce feelings of lethargy.
There are some studies to suggest caffeine has a positive effect on memory formation. In addition; Caffeine and coffee have been shown to cause major improvements in performance for endurance athletes. For high-intensity sports like cycling or swimming, caffeine may benefit trained athletes but not untrained individuals.
For strength or power-based exercises, the research about the effects of caffeine is mostly positive, but still mixed. Caffeine can help release stored fat from fat cells, especially before and at the end of a workout. It can also help you burn more calories.
L-Phenylalanine: Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid that is used to produce proteins and signaling molecules. It has been studied as a treatment for several medical conditions but is dangerous for those with a specific genetic disorder phenylketonuria (PKU).
Your body needs phenylalanine and other amino acids to make proteins. Many important proteins are found in your brain, blood, muscles, internal organs and virtually everywhere else in your body.
What’s more, phenylalanine is crucial for the production of other molecules, including:
L-Theanine: L-theanine is an amino acid found most commonly in tea leaves and in small amounts in Bay Bolete mushrooms and can be found in both green and black tea.
Most known for helping people relax, L-theanine has many other potential health benefits, including:
Bioperine®(Black Pepper Fruit extract): Bioperine is the active ingredient in black pepper that contributes to that unique spice you taste. Black pepper has long been regarded as beneficial to one’s health throughout history. Now with the help of modern science and clinical research, more Piperine benefits are being discovered. Here are just several of those science-backed health benefits of black pepper extract.
