In today’s competitive landscape, Ultimate Nutrition’s team of scientists has pioneered the next generation of pre-workout: Pre Gold. This innovative approach covers far more than just the energy boost delivered by the average “stim-bomb.”
Nitric oxide support and blood flow optimization are essential components of the modern training regimen. Clinical studies have shown the efficacy of L-Citrulline, a precursor to arginine, on increasing plasma nitrate levels and nitric oxide availability to optimize pump during workouts. Research has shown that supplementation with Potassium Nitrate resulted in a ~846% increase in maximum power output in athletes when compared to placebo.7 Recent studies have shown that the combination of these ingredients form a powerful duo to improve vascular conductance, delivering more oxygen to muscles when they need it most.
Obviously, no pre-workout formula is complete without an energy source. Ultimate Nutrition’s innovative approach utilizes a unique blend of ergogenic aids, providing sustained energy. Synephrine, the active ingredient in Citrus Aurantium, has been shown to support the increased energy expenditure associated with intense exercise, while also promoting lean muscle development.4 Explosiveness and intensity are delivered by a time-released blend of Caffeine and DiCaffeine Malate. This two-stage energy matrix has been shown to increase energy expenditure by 21.5% in the first hour of training.1 The second phase of energy propels athletes to power through the final stages of intense training. Research shows a sustained energy potential with an additional 10% increase in energy for the second hour of exercise.1
To enhance the intensity of the energy matrix, a clinically-effective dose of beta alanine was included for Ultimate power output.5 To amplify the effects of beta alanine, Dicaffeine Malate has been clinically proven to increase total weight lifted and elevate peak power.3 To provide an extra layer of focus, the synergistic pairing of caffeine and taurine was utilized.
Vitamin B6 and Vitamin C deliver the ancillary support for maximum performance and to ensure adequate vitamin replenishment. Pre Gold has been formulated to equip athletes with the necessary PUMP, ENERGY, and POWER for an explosive workout. Get ready for the gold and get Pre Gold.
