Looking for that one supplement that will erase sluggishness, and get you results in the gym ? Look no further.

We present to you Pre-Workout : the booster that will energize your workouts and maximize performance.

Built on a solid foundation of Creatine Malate, Pre-Workout uses an interactive combination of ingredients not only to give you long-lasting energy, focus and alertness, but to intensify your workouts, and maximize pumps. The inclusion of creatine is designed to increase your physical performance and muscular strength.

 

What can Pre-Workout do for you  ?

• Support increased energy

• Improve mental alertness & focus

• Enhance pumps & strength

• Increase stamina

• Provides 100 % natural flavouring 

 

Core Ingredients  :

 

Tri-Creatine Malate

Creatine increases physical performance, especially in burst of short-term, high intensity exercise.*

Daily creatine consumption can enhance the effects of resistance training on muscular strength in adults.*

 

Arginine HCL

Arginine HCL increases physical performance in terms of endurance, and boosts immunity. (4.5)

 

HMB (HydroxyMethylbutyrate)

HMB has anti-catabolic, anabolic and lipolytic effects. It can increase fat-loss and improve both upper-and lower-body strength. (6.7.8)

 

Citrulline Malate

Citruline malate is a vasodilator. A compound that dilates the blood vessels. This is done through it’s ability to increase nitric oxide levels. Vasodilation improves blood circulation and oxygen supply and accelerates the elimination of toxic substances from the body. It assists in supplying energy levels during high-intensity exercise, and sustains these levels by increasing adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production (9.10.11)

 

Taurine

Taurine is an amino acid that can calm the nervous system by facilitating the production of the neurotransmitter GABA.

 

Beta Alanine

Beta Alanine is a beta amino acid which is used to produce carnosine. Carnosine is designed to reduce lactic acid build up and can significantly improve endurance capacity.

 

Magnesium

Magnesium contributes to a reduction of tiredness and fatigue.*

It also plays a very important role in protein synthesis.*

 

Caffeine 

Caffeine is the popular stimulant, which has been proven to increase alertness and improve concentration.

 

Natural Cinnamon Extract (10% polyphenol)  

Cinnamon can enhance the efficient use of carbohydrate energy and slows its conversion to glucose. This ensures carbohydrates are used as an energy source, rather than merely increasing blood glucose levels. [16]

Detailed Description

Detailed Description of Pre-Workout :

 

Tri-Creatine Malate

Human studies show that Creatine Malate has the potential to increase anaerobic exercise performance.

This ingredient has a significant ergogenic effect and may also elevate growth hormone levels. Creatine malate can increase peak power and total work capacity without noticeably affecting maximal oxygen uptake. Several studies have supported these benefits.

An extra benefit of Creatine Malate is its ability to decrease knee stiffness and pain, as well as improve physical function – even patients with osteoarthritis.

The combination of creatine malate and caffeine has also been shown to augment intermittent high-intensity sprint performance. [1,2,3]

Arginine HCL

Arginine is a type of amino acid, one of the building-blocks that makes up proteins. It improves blood circulation and can increase physical performance, endurance, sexual drive, and immune system function.

Most of the benefits from Arginine come from its vital role in Nitric Oxide (NO) synthesis. This increase in nitric oxide levels provides vasodilation effects, which reduce oxygen demand during physical exercise and can vastly improve endurance.

Arginine plays an important role in Creatine synthesis and provides sufficient energy for muscle contraction and improve physical performance. [4,5]

 

HMB (HydroxyMethylbutyrate)

HMB (HydroxyMethylbutyrate) combined with physical training can improve protein balance, and augment strength and lean body mass. It has been also found that ergogenic benefits of HMB also provide anti-catabolic, anabolic and lipolytic effects.

Bodybuilders and strength/power athletes use HMB to promote exercise performance and skeletal muscle hypertrophy. Research has shown HMB supplementation to increase limb circumference, as well as leg and grip strength, via increases in protein synthesis. Such effects are also valuable for the elderly, especially in terms of fat-loss and strength increases.

HMB supplementation increases maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max), ventilatory threshold, and peak oxygen uptake. Prolonged HMB supplementation may also improve concentrations of testosterone, cortisol, and intramuscular enzymes, which can be beneficial for muscular development and general health.

It has been also found that HMB and creatine have apparent additive effects. [6,7,8]

 

Citrulline Malate

Along with Arginine and Ornithine, Citrulline is the other significant amino acid in the urea cycle.

Citrulline Malate is a combination of the amino acid, Citrulline, and Malic Acid. Malic Acid is another natural compound, which is synthesized in the body in the Citric Acid cycle.

Citrulline Malate improves Ornithine and Arginine plasma concentrations. All three of these amino acids activation can stimulate ATP (basic energy source of cells) production, ammonia recycling, and nitric oxide metabolism. These effects all promote energy production.

This increase in energy production can improve both aerobic and anaerobic physical performance, cardiovascular health, and reduce fatigue. It may also assist with insulin control.

Like Arginine, Citrulline Malate acts as a vasodilator by improving the production of Nitric Oxide. This improves blood circulation and oxygen supply, and also accelerates the release of toxic substances from the body.

Citrulline Malate also increases muscle creatine concentrations and can improve recovery time. [9,10,11]

 

Taurine

Taurine is an amino acid which assists with neurological development. It can also regulate water and mineral uptake by muscle cells. Studies showed that the Caffeinated, Taurine-containing beverages improved attention. [12]

 

Beta Alanine

Beta Alanine is a non-essential amino acid. Supplementation has been shown to increase Carnosine concentrations in skeletal muscle by 20 to 80 percent, which is important for reducing muscular fatigue.

The findings of several studies have shown that Beta Alanine supplementation can improve performance in high-intensity intermittent exercise and improve training adaptations.

In CREATINE Matrix, Beta Alanine is combined with Creatine and other ingredients that provide additive ergogenic effects. [13]

 

Magnesium

Magnesium is an essential mineral that combats fatigue syndrome. A Magnesium deficiency in the body can cause an inefficient use of energy, even during exercise of moderate intensity. This often leads to rapid exhaustion and fatigue.

A study conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture suggests that a low dietary intake of Magnesium reduces vital mineral levels in the blood, weakening muscle function and leading to poor athletic performance.

“Brain Research Bulletin,” published a study which demonstrated that a Magnesium deficiency in brain tissue can trigger a reduction in energy production. This leads to headaches and migraines.

An animal study was also published in 2009 in “Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism” which showed that Magnesium supplements improve blood energy metabolism and exercise performance. [14]   

 

Caffeine 

Caffeine is a potent stimulant which can increase metabolic rate, leading to extra fat-loss.

Caffeine taken about an hour before exercise can improve both mood and focus, which can result in improved performance. [15]

                                                                          

Natural Cinnamon Extract (10% polyphenol)      

Cinnamon Extract can control blood glucose levels by regulating carbohydrate metabolism.

It assists to maximize carbohydrate use, and prevent any premature conversion to sugar molecules. This allows a more efficient use of carbohydrates, and prevents unnecessary rapid increases in blood glucose levels. [16]
