There are few companies that make a name for themselves like Optimum Nutrition has. Most companies look up to Optimum Nutrition for what they have accomplished over the years. Established in 1986, Optimum Nutrition has had one goal in mind – Quality Supplements at the right price. Optimum Nutrition does not skimp on the right ingredients. They understand that giving the consumer what works makes the customer happy and they achieve the results they desire. Optimum Nutrition is probably most known for their protein blends. Their Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein truly set the standard of protein by combining all the right ingredients to make the best protein around.
One of the newest additions to the Optimum Nutrition family is Platinum Pre. Today we will be looking deeper into what is in this product and what you can expect when you take it.
Micronized Citrulline & PepForm Citrulline Peptides
For those of you who do not already know, L-citrulline is more effective at increasing nitric oxide than L-arginine. Citrulline is a precursor to nitric oxide, and has been shown to gradually release NO into the blood stream allowing the body to stay pumped longer. One scoop of platinum Pre has 2g of L-citrulline and Citrulline Peptides. The peptides help increase absorption and the effectiveness of L-citrulline. If you have taken L-citrulline in the past, but haven’t used it with Citrulline Peptides you may have been missing out on the full potential of L-citrulline. The Citrulline Peptide has a patent-pending on it, which guarantees its quality.
There are few supplements have been shown to be more effective than Beta-alanine. Beta-alanine helps with nitric oxide production, endurance, and fighting soreness. If you notice that your recovery time in-between sets and or between workouts is getting worse you may benefit from using beta-alanine. Beta-alanine is the main precursor for carnosine. Carnosine helps to regulate acidic byproducts that are released during strenuous exercise. You may not want to leave the gym after a week of using this!
Caffeine may have received a bad rap over the years because of energy drinks, but it is still thought of an essential supplement for serious athletes. Research proves that caffeine helps to increase energy output when lifting and while performing endurance exercise. Using 200mg if you are less than 200lbs is the right dosage, use 300mg if you are 200-220lbs and 400mg if you are 220lbs+. Along with focus and endurance Caffeine can also help increase nutrition uptake.
Capsicum Fruit Extract
Who doesn’t like breaking a good sweat while workingout? The Capsicum fruit extract is a chili pepper extract that helps support healthy blood flow increasing thermogenics. This doesn’t mean it will make you lose weight, but it will help with increase sweating. If you have a proper diet with Platinum Pre it can help aid in water loss, but this is not the main function behind it. Increasing blood flow can also help aid in the PUMP feeling.
PhytoBlend + 200 mg Vitamin C
The PhytoBlend is a combination of four ingredients. 1) Beet juice extract has nitrogen’s in it to help increase nitrogen retention giving a long lasting pump. 2) Grape seed extract is used as a potent antioxidant that fights free radicals and can help with reducing soreness. 3) Red Wine Extract may contain resveratrol, which is thought of a super anti-oxidant. 4) Citrus Bioflavonoids are a great absorption product that helps to increase absorption of all ingredients. In addition Platinum Pre also has a efficacious amount of vitamin C to helps with proper oxygen uptake and recovery..
