Why is Pre-Workout Important?

If you’re someone who works out regularly, you might be wondering if you should be taking pre-workout even if you’re not an “athlete.” The answer is absolutely yes!

Even if you don’t consider yourself an “athlete,” supplements can take your workout routine to the next level with the following benefits.

Energy Boost – Without the Crash!

Red Leaf Pre-Workout is formulated with a mild dose of caffeine that provides just enough boost without the jitters or crash many pre-workouts are known for. All of our pre-workout drinks contain the same amount of caffeine as half a cup of coffee, or about 40 mg. For context, the Mayo Clinic recommends that the average person consume no more than 400 mg per day, or roughly four to five eight-ounce cups of coffee.

Moderate doses of caffeine have been shown to improve reaction time and concentration but can have some negative side effects when consumed in excess. Here at Red Leaf, we are proud to have formulated our pre-workout with a safe, low-dose, all-natural caffeine that boosts energy without causing negative side effects.

Muscle Recovery

Ingredients like BCAAs, beta-alanine, and amino acids are at the core of our pre-workout formula. We’re proud to list each ingredient and its precise amount right on the label; we don’t need to hide behind “proprietary blends.” BCAAs are branched-chain amino acids that support protein synthesis in the body, assisting in muscle growth and lessening muscle soreness & breakdown. To learn more about how BCAA’s can assist with muscle recovery, check out our blog “The Benefits of BCAA’s.”

While pre-workout might not be essential to every fitness routine, it can help you make big strides in your progress. “Athlete” or not, try Red Leaf Pre-Workout before your next gym session to take your workout to the next level!
