Performance® Pre-Workout Energy Drink Product Sheet
What Causes Exercise Exhaustion?
When you exercise, your body uses oxygen to break down glucose for energy. During intense exercise, when there isn't enough oxygen available, your body makes lactate, which can be converted into energy without oxygen. Hydrogen ions are also produced during that process. Hydrogen ions decrease the pH level in your muscles, reducing your muscles’ ability to contract and resulting in fatigue.
Carnosine acts as a buffer against hydrogen ions, which helps reduce muscle fatigue and exhaustion to improve performance.
How the Ingredients in Pre-Workout Drink Help
Beta-alanine is a naturally occurring, non-essential amino acid. When combined with L-histidine, another amino acid, beta-alanine increases muscle carnosine concentrations. Muscle carnosine is important because it acts as an intracellular buffer against hydrogen ions that can accumulate during high-intensity activity. An increase in hydrogen ions can cause a decline in muscle pH, which can lead to a faster onset of fatigue and reduce your ability to perform. Supplementing with beta-alanine has been shown to increase carnosine levels in the muscle and improve performance by delaying fatigue.*1-3
Caffeine is classified as a stimulant. It increases activity in the central nervous system. It does this by acting as an adenosine antagonist. Adenosine is a neurotransmitter that binds to specific receptors and makes us feel drowsy. Caffeine binds to those same receptors, blocking the adenosine from working, which can enhance athletic performance.*
What ingredients are in the Pre-Workout Drink?
The Performance® Pre-Workout drink is formulated with naturally occurring ingredients, including 100 mg caffeine from green tea extract, 100 mg L-theanine, and 800 mg beta-alanine.
Why does the Pre-Workout Drink contain caffeine?
Caffeine provides an energy boost that has been shown to support athletic performance.* It does this by acting as an adenosine antagonist. Adenosine is a neurotransmitter that binds to specific receptors in the brain and makes us feel drowsy. Caffeine binds to the same receptors, blocking adenosine from working.*
How much caffeine is in one serving of the Pre-Workout Drink?
One serving of the Pre-Workout Drink contains 100 mg of natural caffeine from green tea extract. One stick pack contains caffeine equivalent to about one cup of coffee.
What is beta-alanine?
Beta-alanine is an amino acid that is produced naturally in the body and is used to synthesize carnosine. Carnosine helps reduce acid that accumulates in the muscle during high-intensity activity. Carnosine is important because it can help you work out longer by delaying the muscle fatigue that can result from the accumulation of acid.*1-3
How do the ingredients in the Pre-Workout drink help reduce perceived effort and improve physical performance?
Muscle fatigue can affect your ability to continue your workout. One of the causes of muscle fatigue during exercise is the build-up of acid in your muscles. Beta-alanine increases carnosine production, and carnosine helps regulate acid build-up to help delay muscle fatigue and improve exercise performance.*1-3
How does L-theanine sharpen focus?
L-theanine is an amino acid that increases alpha waves in the brain.* Alpha waves are produced in the brain of an individual during a relaxed state. Alpha wave activity is associated with improved performance under stress, improved concentration and cognitive function, and increased alertness.4
Does the Pre-Workout Drink have a flavor?
The Pre-Workout Drink has a natural lemon flavor.
Can I use the Pre-Workout Drink with Sustained Energy Boost*? Energy Chews? Energizing Tea?
