Health claims accepted by the following organisations:
The European Medicines Agency (EMA) has approved the traditional use of guarana seeds for the treatment of fatigue and weakness.
Vitamin C contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Folate contributes to normal amino acid synthesis.
Pre-Workout by Abs creates a natural synergy that will give you strength and energy before each sports session, for optimum results and better physical recovery.
Its amino acid content boosts energy.
L-citrulline reduces the accumulation of ammonia (1), a cause of fatigue, and intervenes in the synthesis of the nitric oxide required for vasodilation. It regulates various functions in skeletal muscle, such as glucose uptake, blood pressure, oxygenation and muscle contraction (2-4).
Beta-Alanine is essential for synthesis of carnosine (5), an antioxidant and ergogenic dipeptide that acts as a pH stabiliser, rendered acidic by intense sport (6, 7).
Raspberry and grape seeds are rich in phenolic compounds, antioxidants essential for muscle recovery. Our natural raspberry juice also provides fibre, vitamins (E, C) and minerals (magnesium, iron and phosphorus) (8).
Guarana seeds stimulate the central nervous system. As well as accelerating basal metabolism and thermogenesis (9), their caffeine content improves cognitive performance and promotes physical and mental strength (10).
Rhodiola, an exceptional adaptogen, helps the body to regulate the symptoms of stress (11-15).
Acerola fruit is an excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, as it contains up to 60 times more vitamin C than oranges! (16) Our Pre-Workout provides 100% of Dietary Reference Values in vitamin C.
Our brewer’s yeast is an excellent source of vitamin B. With just 0.5 g of this unique formula, the body obtains all the intake it needs to function well (regulation of hormone activity, normal energy metabolism, reduction of fatigue) (17).
Our unique Pre-Workout formula by Abs contains the most effective ingredients to delay the onset of fatigue; to improve the performance and the physical endurance.
