Max Perform why is it special?

Max Perform is a pre-workout that will NOT jack your heart rate and make you crash mid-workout. There is only 90mg of caffeine, and the saying we like to use is a little goes a long way. This magically tasting pre-workout will have you wanting to sip it all day everyday. Give yourself that intra-workout energy and kick start of recovery just by sippin’.

Reduce delayed onset muscles soreness (DOMs)
Fatty acids utilized as fuel
BCAA’s and EAA’s

RESEARCH BEHIND THE INGREDIENTS

BCAAs are composed of leucine, isoleucine, and valine, and are considered essential in that they must be obtained from diet. Supplementation causes increased protein synthesis, reduced Rate of Perceived Exertion (RPE) by preventing an influx of serotonin, and causes glycogen sparing during training, and increased glucose uptake after training.

Acetyl L-carnitine is an acetylated form of carnitine, which is broken down and used in the process of transporting fatty acids to the mitochondria for use as fuel. It also has a secondary, dose-dependent ability to increase lactate clearance.

Caffeine is the most commonly used and studied over-the-counter stimulant. It works by antagonizing the adenosine receptors, there by causing increased alertness and wakefulness. This inhibition can also influence the dopamine, serotonin, acetylcholine, and adrenaline systems, thereby reducing RPE (rate of perceived exertion). While dosing ranges in studies showing an ergogenic effect can range up to 6mg/kg, many individual variances exits, lending itself to justifying a lower dose per serving in Max Perform.

An organic compound that is found throughout animal tissue, it is often confused as being an amino acid, which it is not. Studies have shown benefits when combined w/ BCAAS to alter DOMS, and in isolation has anti-oxidant like effects without blunting exercise-induced oxidative adaptations.
