Pre-workout supplements ensure that you can crush it at the gym with 200% force. There are endless products to choose from and all claim that they'll take your training to a new level.
However, a lot of these supplements contain a mystery blend of ingredients ranging from guarana to creatine to other stimulants. We at Amazonia, however, trust Mother Nature and her infinite powers and prefer natural performance enhancers such as beets.
Nitrate supplementation with beet juice has been suggested to improve muscle blood flow and enhance exercise performance in cyclists and rowers. So, why not reap those potential benefits for your training efforts?
This pre-workout juice recipe banks mainly on the wondrous powers of beets and our RawFIT Bio Active BCAAs – designed to promote muscle growth, delay muscle fatigue and accelerate recovery.
