Preworkout Energy Drink Mix
Performance boosting herbs come together with coconut-derived MCT's. This formula may support energy, alertness, strength, stamina, brain function, circulation, hormones, and weight loss. Medium Chain Triglycerides are the preferred fuel source for the body and are quickly metabolized for sustained energy. While most pre-workouts contain synthetic, isolated ingredients, we utilize Matcha Green Tea for its caffeine balancing L-theanine content, Beet-derived TMG for stamina, along with circulation and strength enhancing adaptogen herbs. †
Fat for Fuel?
There are 2 main fuel types for the body. Carbs(glucose) and Fat. When the body is given a high-fat, low-carb diet it can start to burn fat and ketones for fuel instead of glucose. This metabolic shift has been measured to reduce cellular damage by 30-40%! This damage occurs in the mitochondria, the energy producing organelles of each cell. By making the transition to burning fat as your dominant fuel source, your mitochondrial DNA, cell membranes, and tissue can remain youthful and resilient. This metabolic adaptation to fat as a fuel source enables you to go long periods without eating because your blood sugar is much more stable, and your body can burn its own fat stores which increase metabolism and facilitate weight loss. But not any fat will do as a fuel source, be sure to avoid grain-fed animal fats and high omega 6 vegetable oils. Perform contains a base of the most efficient burning fats known, Medium Chain Triglycerides. Of the various forms of MCT, C8 and C10 are the quickest to convert into energy. These are the two forms that we use in Perform.
How often can I use this?
Perform is safe for daily use. We recommend you use it on the days that you need that extra something. For most people, it may be just using in their morning coffee, or in place of, to give them the extra boost to get through a busy work day. Also, great in the afternoon or to support some late night studying.
Green tea exhibits a remarkable wisdom with how it delivers caffeine. It contains a balanced dose of L-theanine which acts to balance the stimulating effects of caffeine within the system. You can expect a steady boost with no jitters or crash. We use Matcha which is made from stone grinding the whole leaf of a specific type of green tea called Tencha. This method yields higher levels of L-theanine than brewing green tea or using green tea extracts.
