Featured Supplement: Optimum Nutrition Platinum Pre-Workout

Learn how Optimum's new Pre- can power you though your workout and improve your muscle-building potential.

Beet Juice Extract

Beets are a rich source of naturally occurring nitrates, which act in the body as nitric oxide (no) donors. When you consume nitrates they are converted into nitrites by bacteria living on the tongue. The digested nitrite gets readily converted in the body to nitric oxide. Since this process of NO production is different from the one involving arginine, taking a nitrate source along with citrulline will have additive effects on NO production.

Capsimax

This is an extract of Capsicum annuum, which is simply hot pepper extract, such as from chili peppers. Hot peppers get their heat or spiciness from the phytochemical capsaicin that is in the pepper’s fruit. when you consume capsaicin it boosts levels of the neurotransmitter/ hormone norepinephrine. this increases metabolic rate, which helps you burn more calories, reduces hunger, and enhances the amount of fat burned, especially during workouts.

Carnosym

This is a patented form of the amino acid beta-alanine. Numerous studies confirm that it boosts muscle strength and power, as well as muscle endurance. Beta-alanine converts to carnosine, and carnosine keeps muscle fibers from becoming too acidic, which helps you train longer.

DMAE

Dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE) has been shown to enhance learning and memory. This is due to the fact that it increases choline levels in the brain (more than taking choline itself), which leads to greater focus, improved mood, and also increased muscle strength.

L-CItrullIne

This amino acid is readily converted to arginine in the body, which subsequently is converted into NO. nitric oxide relaxes blood vessels to allow more blood to flow to muscle fibers. During workouts this greater blood flow increases energy, strength, and muscle pump.

One or two scoops of Optimum Platinum Pre- gives you the key ingredients you need to get the most out of your workouts.
