DESCRIPTION: Pure WOD has been engineered to take your CrossFit, endurance or intense exercise to the next level. Pure WOD will keep the burn down, keep you energized and help push power beyond what you thought was possible. Not an athlete? No problem! Many people use Pure Wod in the morning for a much needed energy boost in place of coffee!
Equip developed Pure WOD because so many athletes were taking pre-workouts, which have potentially helpful ingredients, however they were also loaded with chemicals and artificial everything. After hundreds of hours of research into peer-reviewed journals to find out exactly what ingredients in pre-workouts actually positively affect performance and at what amounts - the chemical compounds were taken out and swapped with whole food sources. The result is a Pre-Workout that has done wonders for people who are looking to grab an edge on performance and energy but also need to keep inflammation low and quality of nutrition super high.
Equip doesn't use any "proprietary blends," only the latest up to date research and proven science. Below you will find every single ingredient used in Pure WOD and why? There are no hidden artificial flavorings, colorings, binding agents or sweeteners. What you see is what you get. Pure WOD is doctor-developed, paleo-approved, and made and sourced with only the most effective and real food ingredients that have been carefully sourced and dosed to skyrocket your performance.
Vitamin C - Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant in the body which has been shown to speed up recovery time in between workouts. Studies have also shown that vitamin C reduces oxidative stress within the tissues. Less oxidative stress means less need for the muscle to recover.
Coconut Water Powder - Sweating is a natural process of dealing with tough workouts, however you lose certain minerals in sweat that are needed for critical tissue functioning. Coconut water contains natural sources of electrolytes to keep you from losing excessive nutrients critical to tissue functioning when the workouts get tough. This keeps you hydrated when you're working too hard to take a water break.
Green Tea Extract - Green tea extract contains 50% of naturally sourced caffeine. Caffeine alone has been shown to increase physical performance and work output. Studies show that when caffeine combined with green tea extract in the most natural form, the body is able to burn more fat for fuel and improve body composition more than caffeine alone.
Creatine - Creatine is one of the most studied and proven supplements to date. It works by giving your muscles the byproducts they need to rapidly turnover energy supplies. This allows for increased strength and power output as well as oxygen input. Studies have shown creatine is also extremely effective at increasing performance for high-intensity, short-duration exercise.
Beta-Alanine - The "burn" you feel in the middle of an intense workout is not lactic acid as many believe. This burn comes from the build-up of hydrogen ions within the muscle cells from the byproduct of energy metabolism. Not only is this uncomfortable, it leads to unnecessary damage to the muscle tissue. Beta-alanine works to buffer out these hydrogen ions so you can power through the toughest high-intensity, maximal effort workouts.
Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) - When you start your workout, your body begins using stored energy (glycogen) in your muscles for fuel. When it runs out, your body will look toward your muscles for fuel. BCAAs help to bridge the gap and provide your body with usable energy so it uses the amino acids for fuel, not your muscles. This leads to preservation of lean tissue mass and increased performance. BCAAs also increase the rate of protein synthesis of lean tissues, helping you recover quicker and get back to workouts as soon as possible.
L-Arginine AKG - When your workouts get intense, your muscles are working hard. You need to rapidly clear the excess waste the muscles produce and bring in fresh oxygen for your tissues to maintain a high level of performance. Arginine AKG acts to increase the size of the blood vessels, allowing for easier transport of waste out and nutrients into tissues. Researchers have shown supplementation of arginine AKG leads to a dramatic increase in both stength and the fatigue threshold of high intensity exercise, meaning you can burn hotter for longer.
L- Carnitine - For your body to use fat as fuel for a workout, it needs L-carnitine. L-carnitine helps shuttle fat into the mitochondria, the energy factories in your body. This means you use fat for fuel, and not your lean tissues. Studies have also found L-carntine to be effective at increasing recovery from maximal effort workouts.
Other Ingredients - Pineapple Juice Powder, Apple Juice Powder, Beet Root Powder, Goji Berry Powder, Stevie Leaf Powder.
