Total War is a pre workout that will give you massive amounts of energy and awesome muscle pumps during your sessions, not only that Redon1 have given us 12 different flavours to choose from! Let’s take a look at what the key ingredients to the an award winning Pre Workout include.
KEY INGREDIENT BREAKDOWN:
L-Citrulline is one of the three dietary amino acids in the urea cycle, alongside L-arginine and L-Ornithine. Supplementation of Citrulline Malate is shown to increase Arginine levels in the body, which supports the production of Nitric Oxide. This in turn has benefits like increasing blood flow, oxygen transportation and nutrient uptake, as well as assisting muscle functions for improved output and growth.
Dose p/serve – 6,000mg of L-Citrulline Malate
Recommended dosage – 6,000mg-8000mg of L-Citrulline malate per day
Beta-Alanine is a non-essential beta amino acid, which means that the amino group is at the beta position from the carboxylate group. Beta-alanine has been shown to enhance muscular endurance. Beta-Alanine increases the concentration of carnosine levels in the muscle. Carnosine scavenges reactive oxygen species, acting as a potent buffer against fatigue toxin production in working muscles such as lactic acid. Reducing fatigue toxin production allows the body to exert more power and volume during exercise, providing us with the ability to push out those final few reps at the end of your working sets and in turn make extra gains!
Dose p/serve – 3,200mg of Beta Alanine
Recommended dosage – 3,200mg of Beta Alanine
Caffeine is the world’s most widely consumed psychoactive drug. Caffeine is a stimulant which means it speeds up the communication of messages between the brain and body. Caffeine is found in a variety of products such as Coffee, Tea, Soft Drinks, Energy Drinks and Energy Supplements. Caffeine hits the adenosine receptor so it can no longer fire the fatigue signal in the body.
Dose p/serve– 350 mg of Caffeine per serve.
Recommended dosage– There is no clinical dose for caffeine.
Juniperus communis as ampiblast
AMPiblastTM is an ingredient derived from the berries of the Juniper plant. Juniperus Communis can help improve the effectiveness of your pre-workout supplement as it provides a steady source of energy while training which can provide an additional “boost” to bodybuilders when working out.
Dose p/serve – 150mg of AMPIblastTM
Recommended dosage – Unknown
Agmatine is derived from L-arginine through decarboxylation (the removal of a carboxylic acid group). It is stored in neurons and is released during neuronal activation. Agmatine inhibits the enzyme that breaks down nitric oxide in your body, resulting in higher nitric oxide levels. Nitric oxide promotes enhanced blood flow to muscles by reducing the friction associated with blood flow. Enhanced blood flow will prove you with better “muscle pumps” and vascularity during your workouts, while also promoting more efficient nutrient and oxygen delivery to muscles. In supplements Agmatine is produced as Agmatine Sulfate.
Dose p/serve – 1,000mg of Agmatine Sulfate
Recommended dosage – 1,500mg of Agmatine Sulfate
Taurine also know as L-Taurine is a naturally occurring organic acid that contains sulfur. Naturally Taurine is found in considerable amounts in the heart and brain, in some foods such as meat and fish and also energy drinks, pre workouts and performance supplements. Taurine acts to increase muscle force production and enhance fatigue resistance from high intensity exercise by increasing the efficiency of the heart and maintaining cell volume. In many studies the combination of Taurine and Caffeine provide significant improvements in mental focus and in turn having both of these ingredients in a Stimulant pre workout you will be able to smash through your session with more energy and more focus.
Dose p/serve– 1,000mg of Taurine
Recommended dosage– 1,000 – 2,000mg of Taurine
