Lights Out Pre-Workout Ingredient Breakdown

L-Citrulline 10,000 MG

You see it in almost every pre-workout, so what does it do? L-Citrulline helps boost nitric oxide levels which allows for more blood to be shuttled into your muscles. This nitric oxidization is what gives you the "pumped" look. L-citrulline allows your muscles to feel, look, and perform at their best.

Key benefits:

  • Increases Blood Flow 
  • Enhances Cognition 
  • Improves Cardiac Function

GlycerPump 5,000 MG

One of the BEST when it comes to making you look HUGE. GlycerPump is a patented, more expensive form of Glycerol. It includes more bioavailable Glycerol that allows for an even better state of "hyperhydration".

What does the term "hyperhydration" mean? The glycerol will accumulate in your body fluids, resulting in a higher accumulation of water in your body. For this to happen, you MUST BE HYDRATED! We never recommend dry scooping pre-workout, especially this one - you'll see the true benefits when taken with water.

Key benefits:

  • Improves Endurance 
  • Decreases Heart Rate
  • Massive Pumps

Betaine Anhydrous 4,000 MG

Another great ingredient added to the mix, Betaine Anhydrous. For starters, it promotes wakefulness without being a stimulant. It is similar to creatine in the way that it improves intracellular hydration. It's known that creatine may help you squeeze out another rep or two, betaine anhydrous does the same. This improves rep quality, endurance/power output, and allows you to handle higher overall volume.

Key benefits:

  • Improves Workload
  • Intracellular Hydration
  • Raises Power Output

L-Tyrosine 2,000 MG

There are many roles L-Tyrosine plays in regulating your body. For our formula specifically, we were more interested in the neurological benefits it brings. L-Tyrosine is proven to produce dopamine and improve mental alertness. These two benefits alone were enough for us to include it in our formula - it adds to that euphoric energy feeling.

Key benefits:

  • Boosts Focus
  • Improves Mood
  • Enhances Exercise Performance

AlphaSize 800 MG

When ingested, AlphaGPC metabolizes into choline. Choline is responsible for memory, focus, and muscle contraction. Upon its rapid digestion, you'll quickly be able to feel it working. Cognitively, you'll feel dialed in. It doesn't stop during your workout; you'll continue to feel the effects for hours after.

Aside from its cognitive enhancing benefits, it is speculated to increase power output and bolster the production of growth hormone for a short period of time upon digestion.

Key benefits:

  • Acts as a Growth Hormone Secretagogue
  • Enhances Mental Performance
  • Increases Power Output

L-Theanine 600 MG

Have you ever wondered why people that drink tea are so happy and calm? L-Theanine is found in tea and is responsible for combatting stress and anxiety. This ingredient paired with caffeine work synergistically together. It's known that caffeine can cause an anxious feeling along with an increase in blood pressure, but together, these negative qualities can be corrected. The crash caffeine brings after a tough lift can be debilitating, however, these two ingredients paired make for hours of locked in focus and motivation.

Key benefits:

  • Decreases Stress Hormone Levels
  • Puts You in a Flow State
  • Combats Negative Effects of Caffeine 

Caffeine Anhydrous 300 MG

The coveted go-to for any pre-workout, Caffeine Anhydrous. What is Caffeine Anhydrous, and how does it differ from regular caffeine? Caffeine is a natural substance found in plants. Upon harvesting these plants, they go through a dehydration process that removes the water. This is where the name "anhydrous" comes from - it means without water. This creates a concentrated, pure, more potent form of caffeine.

Key benefits:

  • Increases Alertness
  • Improves Brain Function
  • Boosts Athletic Performance

VASO6 300 MG

A revolutionary, dark horse of an ingredient. You'll see this ingredient in very few pre-workouts for the simple fact that most companies are too cheap to include trademarked ingredients. Even If they do, they're putting WAY below the bare minimum needed to see benefits.

With VASO6 the magic is in the name - massive pumps and veins you've
never seen before. It has even been known to increase vasodilation by up to 50%. This is achieved by the blood vessels relaxing by means of the nitric oxide produced through VASO6. When the blood vessels relax, more blood moves through the muscles. Blood delivers everything from nutrients to amino acids.

Key benefits:

  • Higher Nitric Oxide Production
  • Enhances Oxygen
  • Decreases Mental Fatigue

Black Pepper Fruit Extract 10 MG

Little is known about this ingredient, but there's an array of benefits when it comes to this key player. Black pepper fruit extract has been shown to help your body utilize its fat as energy during exercise. It aids in the digestion of many nutrients that play a critical role in building muscle. Essentially, it makes your body a more efficient machine.

Aside from its weightlifting benefits, it has a number of other health benefits. It can improve heart health, act as a digestive aid, and may reduce the risk of chronic diseases.

Key benefits:

  • Fat Burning Effects
  • Boosts Nutrient Absorption
  • Anti-inflammatory Properties

Huperzine-A 1% 200 MCG

Found naturally in plants, Huperzine-A has been a part of Chinese medicine for hundreds of years. It's becoming more prevalent in pre-workouts due to its cognitive enhancing effects, but another important benefit is its ability to improve muscle contraction and activation. Huperzine-A is regarded as a potent nootropic, with its ability to enhance focus and help you achieve a deeper mind-muscle connection.

Key benefits:

  • Enhances Memory
  • Supports Movement
  • Improves Sleep
