Pre-workout supplements are designed to give you nutrients to enhance your workout! Increased blood flow, better mental focus, enhanced muscle pumps and increased energy are just some of the reasons why more people are using pre- workout supplements
Benefits You want to be focused, driven and energized when you hit the gym. Whenever you hit the gym fatigued or unmotivated - or both - it's harder to push out those reps. Using a Pre-Workout can: Sharpen mental alertness and focus Skyrocket energy levels Circulate oxygen flow in the muscle tissue Promote Explosive muscular energy Promote Vein-popping vascular pumps
Active Ingredients Most Pre-workouts contain the following Caffeine: supports fast metabolism, focus, mental clarity, fat loss, focus and strength. L-Arginine: used to promote nitric oxide, which is a vasodilator. This supports oxygen flow and helps your blood vessels expand within a normal range. L-Arginine may also help you recover faster from your workouts, which means fast results. Beta-Alanine: decreases fatigue during muscular activity, which pushes muscles harder and longer. Beta-Alanine may help maximize protein synthesis and promote muscular endurance and performance during exercise. Other Ingredients: Creatine, other amino acids, carbohydrates, natural herbs, and vitamins or minerals

Protein Next to water, protein which is comprised of amino acids is the 2 nd most rich substance in the human body Protein is the framework for almost every system in the body It is present in muscles, organs, blood cells, hair, bones, marrow, nails, tissues, skin and teeth etc. And not nearly enough people are getting the proper daily amount There are twenty-two amino acids that make-up numerous proteins and enzymes within the body. The body merely produces 14 of them. The other 8 need to originated from food.
Protein Benefits Protein is an essential factor in maintaining a healthy body Protein provides energy to the body helping from fatigue It also fights off diseases and illnesses keeping the immune system functioning properly To get the proper health benefits of protein, most people need about 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight each day.

Creatine supplements are athletic aids used to increase high-intensity athletic performance Creatine use can increase maximum power and performance in high-intensity anaerobic repetitive work Works best for low louts of sprinting/cycling/ or multiple sets of low rep weight lifting Creatine can add body mass gains of about 1kg in a weeks time However studies suggest that this is in large part to greater water retention inside the muscle cells
Creatine Side Effects People who tend to have naturally high stores of creatine in their muscles don't get an energy-boosting effect from extra creatine “Preliminary clinical studies also suggest that creatine's ability to increase muscle mass and strength may help fight muscle weakness associated with illnesses such as heart failure and muscular dystrophy”
Creatine Powders It is estimated that Americans spend roughly $14 million a year on creatine supplements Supplements are commonly sold as powders, although liquids, tablets, capsules, energy bars, fruit-flavored chews, drink mixes, and other preparations are also available
