Clean pre workout supplement hits market
Pre.Fuel from Kinetica Sports Nutrition is a ‘clean’ pre workout supplement that helps keep the body’s ‘engine’ fully nourished during exercise whilst powering performance.
Containing a rich mix of branched chain amino acid supplements to contribute to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass, Pre.Fuel also includes additional energy boosting B vitamins and key minerals such as Vitamin B12 to aid the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. The upshot is a fast-working pre workout supplement that doesn’t contain any added carbohydrate or sugar.
According to elite sports nutritionist and Kinetica Brand Ambassador, Matt Lovell:
- Increase energy for improved performance
- Fight off drowsiness and enhance level of alertness and intellectual functioning
- Improves mood and concentration
- Helps to increase blood flow to the muscle tissues for greater oxygen delivery to continue on with aerobic performance
- Batch tested within WADA (World Anti Doping Agency) guidelines
One serving Pre.Fuel contains a similar amount of caffeine as one would find in a small-medium size Starbucks coffee. This has the effect of raising the heart rate, increasing alternates and can speed up metabolism. Whilst this is not a large amount of caffeine, use of such stimulants for those partaking in exercise experienced as being ‘intense’ or ‘demanding’ due to a lesser level of fitness or due to pre existing heart conditions might be advised to approach the use of such stimulants with caution.
A 2006 study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology reported that caffeine limits the body’s ability to increase blood flow to the heart during exercise. A lack of supply of oxygen to muscles and the brain can cause dizziness of fainting. Some may also be sensitive to caffeine which can cause heart palpitations.
HealthGauge approached Kinetica for comment on the use of caffiene in Pre.Fuel. Eimear Gallwey, product specialist at Kinetica responded with the following:
Pre.Fuel is available to buy from the Kinetica Online Store at prices starting from £1.49.
