Supplement Facts

Supplement FactsDirections

Dissolve the contents of one scoop in 6-12 oz of water according to preferred sweetness. On non-workout days, consume the effervescent drink in the AM on an empty stomach. On workout days, consume the effervescent drink once daily 30 minutes prior to workout, or use as directed by your healthcare practitioner.

Consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use. Individuals taking medication, especially blood thinners, should discuss potential interactions with their healthcare practitioner. Caffeine should not be combined with synephrine or ephedrine. Use cautiously if you have a history of abnormal heart rhythm. Do not use if tamper seal is damaged.

Wheat, gluten, yeast, soy protein, animal or dairy products, fish, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts, egg, artificial colors, artificial sweeteners, or artificial preservatives.

Description

All-Natural, No Sugars

ElevX Workout™ relies on natural ingredients, not ephedra or artificial stimulants, to help maximize exercise performance. Furthermore, it provides only five grams of carbohydrates and zero sugars. By using natural flavors and stevia in place of sugar and other carbohydrates, the typical “sugar high” that is associated with many energy drinks can be avoided. Equally important, ElevX Workout™ contains no artificial colors.*

Peak ATP®

Oral supplementation of ATP (adenosine triphosphate) combined with resistance training has demonstrated ergogenic benefits.[1] Peak ATP is a patented form of ATP disodium that has been shown in human studies to enhance muscular growth, power, and strength while improving recovery. Proposed mechanisms of action include increased muscular excitability, improved blood flow, and increased anabolic signaling.[1-4] As a result of these effects, Peak ATP helps athletes push themselves to greater levels of performance.*

Peak ATP supplementation (400 mg/d) has been shown to increase post-exercise ATP levels and athletic performance following repeated sprint bouts. Peak ATP also significantly increased vasodilation and blood flow after acute arm exercise bouts.[5,6] In a double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover study, 400 mg of Peak ATP for 15 days “tended to reduce muscle fatigue while improving muscle low-peak torque through sets of exhaustive exercise.”[1] A double-blind placebo-controlled study showed that resistance-trained participants taking Peak ATP for 12 weeks experienced several benefits over placebo, such as increased strength (147%), increased power (30%), increased lean body mass (100%), and increased muscle thickness (96%). Additionally, body fat decreased in the supplemented group.[3] Data also suggests that Peak ATP helped prevent performance declines seen in overreaching.[3] Adding to these findings, in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study (n=42), Purpura et al found that 400 mg of Peak ATP for two weeks prevented exercise-induced declines in ATP and its metabolites and enhanced peak power and muscle excitability.*[7]

Creapure® Creatine Monohydrate

Creatine supplementation increases the amount of creatine in muscle tissue, heightens energy production, decreases muscle fatigue, and reduces lactic acid output. Significant improvements in body mass, fat-free body mass, oxygen uptake, sprint performance, weightlifting volumes, and overall exercise performance following creatine supplementation have been demonstrated. [8-10] In ElevX Workout™, a compounding effect of several ingredients is expected. In fact, the combinatory effects of caffeine, creatine, and amino acids have produced improvements in time to exhaustion (TTE) and peak velocity (PV) in humans.*[11]

Creapure is premium, 100% pure creatine monohydrate that has been used with confidence for over 20 years. The Creapure brand is recognized for careful selection of raw materials, patented high-performance technology, sophisticated process engineering under GMP conditions, and precise chemical analysis to ensure consistency and purity.

PURENERGY™

Purenergy is an innovative patent-protected ingredient that combines caffeine with pTeroPure® pterostilbene—a highly bioavailable analog of resveratrol—to form a unique co-crystal structure. It appears that this unique structure affects the way the body utilizes caffeine. As such, it may offer significant advantages over caffeine alone. In a rat study (n=6), the half-life of caffeine from Purenergy was eight hours, while that of ordinary caffeine was just three hours.[12] In a preliminary, four-week, single-blind, crossover human study (n=12) that compared 232 mg of Purenergy (providing 99.76 mg of caffeine) to 100 mg of ordinary caffeine, the absorption of caffeine from Purenergy was approximately 30% slower and Purenergy delivered 30% more caffeine to the bloodstream. Furthermore, at six hours, 51% more caffeine from Purenergy was detected in serum compared to ordinary caffeine.*[13,14]

These data suggest that the effects of caffeine from Purenergy may last longer than the effects from ordinary caffeine and point to a potential for reducing total caffeine intake. Additionally, the extended half-life and slower absorption rate of caffeine from Purenergy may produce a more moderated and gradual finish, thereby preventing the “crash” associated with regular caffeinated energy products. While the results of these studies are promising, larger studies are needed to validate the findings and determine if these findings translate into a lengthened energy effect. Of interest, chlorogenic acids from coffee have been found to positively affect human fecal microbiota, including Bifidobacterium species, which could benefit host health.*[15]

Herbs and Amino Acids

ElevX Workout™ combines Purenergy in a proprietary blend with various herbs and amino acids, including green tea extract, coffee fruit extract, taurine, and L-arginine alpha-ketoglutarate. This proprietary blend is designed to complement the activities of Purenergy. Furthermore, some of these individual ingredients taken in high doses have roles in mitochondrial biogenesis and are known to have a positive influence on exercise performance.*[16-18]
