It’s a big statement and it’s a bold statement but we stand by it. Why? Because The Switch is packed with top quality ingredients. The Switch isn’t just your average pre-workout supplement.
Put simply, The Switch is a supercharged pre-workout supplement that provides a surge of energy and mental focus like never before. The Switch works to help you recover faster, helping you break through to new levels of strength, speed and endurance.
But you don’t just want to hear the simple version right? You want to hear why The Switch is the ultimate pre-workout. Well, here’s why:
Before we get into the into the science-backed ingredients, let’s talk about the quality of the formulation. The Switch is formulated with:
No Proprietary Blends
Putting ‘propriety blends’ on the back of a pre-workout supplement product allows companies to hide how little of each ingredient they’ve actually put into their product. This can result in cheap, under-dosed and ineffective supplements. You won’t find any proprietary blends in The Switch.
For the reasons detailed above, many supplement companies are moving toward transparency and axing proprietary blends. That’s a good thing. However, these companies are still guilty of grossly under dosing ingredients.
Take citrulline malate, for example. The research on this potent amino acid shows that you need 6 grams per dose. Most pre-workout products leave out citrulline entirely, and none of them provide anywhere close to 6 grams. Until The Switch came along!
No ‘Abbreviated’ Formulas
An abbreviated formula is one that uses proper dosing of all ingredients, but only includes a few ingredients while leaving out other ingredients that make it more effective. Why do they do this? Because adding more ingredients costs money. The Switch is all about packing as much quality into each tub as possible.
Now lets get into the real good stuff. The ingredients! The Switch contains 11 ingredients that work in concert to prime your body for intense workouts, making it the most complete pre-workout supplement available.
The Switch contains:
6g of Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs)
BCAA supplementation can be useful for gaining mass, maintaining muscle mass and reducing the amount of exercise-induced muscle damage. Furthermore, unlike other amino acids, BCAAs are used directly by the muscle as an energy source.
BCAAs refer to three specific amino acids:leucine, isoleucine, and valine.
Leucine is the most anabolic, muscle-building amino acid out of all amino acids and has been shown to increase protein synthesis by up to 145%!
Isoleucine improves glucose metabolism and induces glucose uptake into cells while valinesupports the blunting of fatigue allowing you to work out longer.
When leucine is taken out of balance with the other BCAAs it will reduce the anabolic response. That is why the optimal ratio of leucine to isoleucine to valine in a pre-workout product is 2:1:1, the exact ratio found in The Switch.
6g of Citrulline Malate
Citrulline Malate is a formulation of the amino acid Citrulline and by combining it with Malate, it is believed to enhance performance during and after intense exercise. Citrulline Malate is being touted as the next big breakthrough supplement to join the ranks of creatine and beta-alanine.
Citrulline Malate will improve your workout performance in three ways:
– Enhances removal of ammonia (a contributor of muscle fatigue)
– Increases energy production
– Boosts nitric oxide production to enhance blood flow to muscles and improve their recovery and function
3g of Creatine Monohydrate
Creatine Monohydrate is clinically proven to be the purest form of creatine available anywhere and it’s benefits include:
Increased work capacity and improved training
In both the short term and long-term, creatine supplementation appears to enhance the overall quality of training, leading to 5-15% greater gains in strength and performance.
Greater increases in lean body mass
There are only a few legal supplements that can directly add muscle mass when combined with exercise. Of these, creatine is the most effective and has the most scientific support. A review of over 150 studies reported an average 2.2% increase in lean body mass and a 3.2% decrease in body fat for those taking creatine.
In The Switch, our Creatine Monhydrate is product using the patented process Creapure® to guarantee purity, effectiveness and potency.
3.2g OF Beta-Alinine
The sports benefit of supplementing with beta-alanine lies mostly in its ability to raise muscle carnosine concentrations. Carnosine defends against the buildup of hydrogen ions (H+) during high-intensity exercise. A rise in H+ is a massive contributor to muscle fatigue. Supplementation with beta-alanine has been shown to increase muscle carnosine concentrations by up to 58% in just four weeks, and 80% in 10 weeks!
Research suggests that carnosine supports increases in strength and power, improves endurance and recovery, and even supports weight management and muscle growth.
One study suggested that four weeks of beta-alanine supplementation in boxers increased their average punching power in the last 10 seconds of a round by 2,000% more than those taking a placebo.
150mg OF N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine
L-Tyrosine is a non-essential amino acids (i.e. can be made in the body) and is critical for a number of different bodily functions such as cognitive processes, synthesizing proteins, building muscles, and cell growth and recovery. N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine is 20 times more water soluble and better absorbed to raise tyrosine levels in the body.
From an athletic perspective, L-Tyrosine may support peak performance for both your brain and body by heightening mental alertness, increasing feelings of well-being and offsetting physical and mental fatigue, particularly during heavy exercise.
200mg of Caffeine
Study after study has shown that caffeine can increase alertness, sharpen focus, improve mood, boost pain tolerance, help burn fat, and help athletes do more work for longer periods in the gym and in sport. Caffeine has been demonstrated to improve physical performance in all codes of sports while also delaying mental fatigue. Other benefits demonstrated includes:
– Endurance athletes improved performance by an average of 3.3% (some reported up to 17% increases)
– Strength and power sports performance improved up to 20%
– Sprinters improved performance on average by 6.5%
– Weightlifters improved performance on average by 9.5%
– Rate of perceived exertion (fatigue) is decreased by 6% on average
5mg of BioPerine®
BioPerine® is a patented extract of the fruit of black pepper, or long pepper, that contains standardized amounts of the active ingredient piperine.
Numerous clinical studies suggest that when a 5 mg dose of BioPerine® is taken with other supplements, it increases the absorption of those supplements by 30 to 2,000 percent
2g of Taurine
Taurine is an organic compound naturally found in high concentrations in the brain, muscle, and other tissues.
Taurine’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties promote recovery after training and help protect muscle against exercise-induced oxidative stress – a key contributor to post-exercise muscle damage, soreness and injury.
