WHATS IN IT?
When you open a packet of LEVERAGE, you will be consuming various ingredients that will ignite a fire within. Unlike many other pre-workouts, LEVERAGE isn't overloaded with ingredients that you've never seen before. You're not a science experiment so why would you treat your body like one? Inside every packet are formulated ingredients that are scientifically proven to get the job done and work extremely well when paired together. Let's start from the top and explain in detail what these ingredients are and how they work.
CAFFEINE: Caffeine is the first ingredient coming in at 275mg per serving. Everyone and their mother knows what caffeine is so there's not much to cover here. The average cup of coffee has around 100mg of caffeine and the average pre-workout is around 250-300mg so we're sitting right in the middle. Caffeine is implemented to give you that spark of energy need but shouldn't be an overpowering ingredient that's going to make you feel like you're going to have a heart attack while you train.
AGMATINE SULFATE: Agmatine Sulfate makes up 500mg of the LEVERAGE formula. It is a fairly well known nitric oxide booster (N.O. Booster) that is derived from the amino acid L-Arginine. Agmatine Sulfate has been shown to promote and regulate nitric oxide synthesis, promote muscle growth, increase stamina and improve muscle recovery post workouts. This is all great news for active individuals of all levels.
CREATINE MONOHYDRATE: Creatine is a supplement long used in the workout community due to its positive benefits relating to building muscle and being healthy. Creatine is readily found in foods such as red meats but there isn’t enough supplied to the body at a given time to fully reap the benefits without added supplementation. In general, Creatine’s suggested dosage is 0.03g per kilogram of body weight per day (non -loading phase). LEVERAGE being a pre-workout and not a pure Creatine source, we’ve dosed 1g of Creatine mono to compliment the rest of the formula. This is also enough to reap the positive benefits of Creatine mono such as increased strength with is due to it stimulating ATP production in the body.
L-TAURINE: L-Taurine is an amino acid, but unlike the others, it does not promote muscle building. Instead, this amino acid has been proven to enhance mental function as well as enhance athletic performance by significantly increasing VO2MAX. VO2MAX is the maximum capacity of oxygen an individual’s body can transport. This correlates to how long it takes for an individual to reach exhaustion. 3g is the upper limit of suggested use and is why it is dosed in LEVERAGE.
BETA ALANINE: Beta Alanine is a modified version of the amino acid Alanine. It is a common ingredient in pre-workouts and is widely known for its effect on the body called paresthesia, which is the harmless tingling feeling side effect experienced by users. Beta Alanine is used to enhance strength and endurance during high intensity training.
L-ARGININE: L-Arginine is implemented for its nitric oxide boosting properties. It is specifically an amino acid that directly produces nitric oxide through nitric oxide synthase enzymes. It is the most direct form of nitric oxide enhancement. Somewhat similar to L-Citrulline, which is another N.O. booster, L-Citrulline has to be converted INTO Arginine in the kidneys.
BIOPERINE: Bioperine is derived from black pepper extract. Bioperine has been shown to increase the absorption of supplemental nutrition on the body. The purpose in LEVERAGE is to increase the absorption of the other ingredients listed.
VITAMIN B COMPLEX: LEVERAGE consists of a B complex containing the following B Vitamins: Vitamin B1 (as Thiamin), Vitamin B2 (as Riboflavin), Vitamin B3 (as Niacin), Vitamin B5 (as Panthothenic Acid) and Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxine). Each of these B vitamins have superb benefits and are a smart choice to supplement into ones diet. Their purpose in LEVERAGE is for the energy boosting benefits. All of the B Vitamins listed (except for Niacin) work together to extract energy from foods you eat and convert it into ATP (useable energy for your muscles). They each must be present in your body to work efficiently together in this ATP production
Niacin on the other hand is quite unique in its ability to enhance blood flow to all areas of the body. Niacin causes your blood vessels to dilate up near your skin. This dilation can cause a warm/hot tingling sensation which is harmless. The red flushing of the skin is a direct link to the supplement that you can truly feel it working. This dilation of blood vessels is great for blood flow which not only helps with blood and nutrient delivery all over the body, but also helps relieve stiffness and pain around joints associated with heavy lifting or strenuous physical activity.
LEVERAGE can either be taken alone or stacked with our BCAA-Pump Blend! You can consume LEVERAGE before your workout and use our BCAAs as an intra or post workout supplement for enhanced muscle recovery and less muscle fatigue.
