Vi-Pre Power Formula Breakdown

Vi-Pre Endurance Formula - The Breakdown.

Vi-Pre Endurance is our Nootropic Pre Workout and Workout Enhancer formulated to aid cognitive and physical performance in Strength/Power based sports.

Creatine

Creatine is a molecule produced by the body and also available in some foods, mainly meat and fish. Creatine stored high-energy phosphate groups the release energy during stress and is thus used by athletes to increase both power output and lean mass. Creatine is one of the most rigorously studied and backed supplements available, boasting and ability to:

  1. Improve power output and lean mass - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12945830
  2. Improve high intensity sprint performance - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21207054
  3. Improve hydration - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11445756

L-Arginine

L-Arginine - Arginine is an amino acid that is readily available in some food sources. As a dietary supplement L-Arginine is mostly used by athletes as it directly produces nitric oxide. Nitric oxide formation in the body leads to expanded blood vessels and increased blood flow, Arginine is shown to:

  1. Reduce the oxygen cost during moderate-intensity exercise and enhance high-intensity exercise tolerance  - http://jap.physiology.org/content/early/2010/08/19/japplphysiol.00503.2010
  2. Invoke a significant increase in Growth Hormone - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15809017
  3. Increase lean mass in some test participants - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22553931

Nitric Oxide itself also acts as a powerful Lactic Acid buffer during exercise.

Beta Alanine

Beta-alanine is a form of the amino acid Alanine, which when ingested turns into a potent acid buffer. Strong doses of Beta Alanine can lead to a harmless tingling feeling called Paresthesia. Supplementation can improve moderate to high-intensity cardiovascular exercise performance.

Studies have shown when compared to placebo groups, Beta Alanine:

  1. Increases training volume and reduces feeling of fatigue - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19083385 
  2. Improves the outcome of exercise - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22270875 
  3. Stimulates lean mass accrual https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21659893 
  4. In tested demographics, Improves muscular endurance - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18992136

Caffeine & L-Theanine

Caffeine is the most popular stimulant available, Vi-Pre includes a moderate amount of Caffeine accompanied by the non sedative relaxant L-Theanine, the couple compliment each others benefits providing a powerful, non jittery and sustained source of focus and energy. Independently, Caffeine has been shown to:

  1. Increase power output - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18458357
  2. Increase sprinting running performance - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18799995
  3. Promote wakefullness - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16541243
  4. Reduce perceived exhaustion during exercise - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21605608
  5. Increase testosterone response to resistance exercise - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18458357

L-Tyrosine

L-Tyrosine is an amino acid that can be found in the diet. It is involved in producing dopamine and adrenaline and is often supplemented for physical performance, cognitive performance, subjective wellbeing and stress reduction. Tyrosine is particularly effective in improving cognition during external stressors - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/2736402

Vitamin B6 & B12

Vitamins B6 & B12 are amongst the few nutrients that have approved EU Health Claims, between the two they posses:

  1. ‘Contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue’
  2. ‘Contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism’
  3. ‘Contributes to normal protein and glycogen metabolism’
  4. ‘Contributes to normal psychological function’
  5. ‘Contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system’
  6. ‘Contributes to normal red blood cell formation’
  7. ‘Contributes to the normal function of the immune system’
  8. ‘Contributes to the regulation of hormonal activity’
