WHAT IS PWO?
Pwo is an abbreviation for Pre-Workout, which is a product that is taken for performance-enhancing purposes before training and physical activity. PWO has become very popular in a short time because it helps with:
- Increased physical energy and endurance
- A better mental focus
- An increased muscle pump and pressure
- Reduced muscle breakdown
- Increased Strength
A good PWO will give an immediate effect and take your workouts to a new level. A common description of the effects a Pre-Workout gives is that it creates a strong focus, a tunnel vision with a feeling of being unstoppable with a good pump in the muscles during the entire workout. A performance-enhancing dietary supplement contains ingredients that increase your performance during physical activity so that you can, among other things, have more energy and perform better.
Which PWO to choose?
Since there are many variants of PWO - Pre Workout on the market, it is important to choose the one that suits you and your purpose. PWO is mainly divided into two different types. A performance-enhancing PWO with topics that focus on giving you energy and better focus. Or a "pump" PWO that focuses more on giving you increased Pump, substances that affect the level of nitric oxide which in turn dilates the blood vessels and increases blood flow which leads to increased pump.
There are products on the market that focus on individual effects, while we at Aware Nutrition have chosen to develop a PWO with ingredients that help you achieve all these performance-enhancing effects (including pump) and a PWO that is shoal-free and that only focuses on pump, without caffeine. We at Aware want to offer two Pre-Workouts with a formula that is good and gives you the desired effect in a safe and good way.
Our formula is based on ingredients with the highest quality made in Sweden. All to be able to offer a good product that gives you the desired effect. For us, it is important to have a high quality and below we go through the substances that AWARE PWO contains and what effects each substance contributes.
The amino acid citrulline is a powerful nitric oxide (NO) booster. Nitric oxide causes the blood vessels to dilate, which ultimately causes more blood and oxygen to reach the muscles. This makes you feel a powerful pump and an increased performance. Citrulline malate is one of the most sought after ingredients in a PWO and many studies have been done on this subject.
The amino acid Beta-Alanine is found in almost every PWO precisely for the effects it has, which has also been proven by research. Beta-Alanine increases the amount of carnosine in the body which reduces the risk of getting lactic acid in the muscles. This allows you to train to the maximum for a longer period and feel an increased strength. Beta-Alanine can cause a stinging sensation in the body.
Creatine is also a very well-studied substance that supplies the body with ATP (energy). Tricreatin is a compound made from 3 different creatine forms to give maximum effect. Among other things, effects such as increased endurance, strength and muscle volume.
Arginine Alphacetoglutarate (AAKG):
AAKG consists of the amino acid Arginine with 2 Arginine molecules bound to an alpha-ketoglutarate molecule. This gives a better absorbency compared to regular l-arginine. AAKG also increases the amount of nitric oxide to the body in the same way as with Citrulline Malat.
NALT is an acetylated form of L-tyrosine which means that it is absorbed and used better by the body than regular L-tyrosine which makes it very effective. This amino acid has many positive effects. Among other things, affect the mood, your mental focus positively and give increased energy. including increasing energy, mental focus and mood. The effects arise when L-tyrosine is used to produce some hormones and neurotransmitters such as dopamine, adrenaline and norepinephrine.
ALC is the acetylated form of L-carnitine that releases and transports fats used for energy which increases energy levels. Acetyl-1-carnitine also increases fat burning during physical activity, levels of nitric oxide and can contribute to improved recovery.
L-theanine is an essential amino acid which means that it needs to be ingested through diet, which is difficult as it is only found in very small amounts. L-theanine has many benefits which makes it effective. Above all, it has an important function for the brain as the amino acid can, among other things, affect your mood, your relaxation, reduce your stress and also help with your recovery after exercise.
Caffeine is probably the most well-known substance that can give the body stimulants and invigorating effects. Caffeine can increase performance during physical activity with effects such as increased muscle endurance and strength.
What does our Voice-Free PWO contain?
Our formula is based on ingredients of the highest quality made in Sweden. All to be able to offer a good product that gives you the desired effect. For us, it is important to have a high quality and below we go through the substances that AWARE Plasma contains and what effects each substance contributes. Aware Plasma is a shoal-free and decaffeinated PWO for you who may be training in the evenings, do not want caffeine or just want that extra pump.
L-Citrullin - 5000mg
L-Citrullin is one of the best pump ingredients on the market. Many people choose to use "proprietary blends" where you do not see the amount or use an amount that is underdosed. When you hear L-Citrulline, you often think of another substance Citrulline Malat which is the most common where it is a mixture of L-Citrulline and Malat. In Aware Plasma, we have chosen to use pure L-Citrulline for extra good effect where 5000mg corresponds to approximately 7500mg Citrulline Malat.
Pure L-citrulline is significantly more expensive than with ground but gives an even better pump, which makes the ingredient an obvious choice in Aware Plasma.
Glycerol - 2500mg
GlycerSize is a substance that improves cell volume, muscle fullness, vascularity and can provide effects such as massive pump, endurance, performance and improved hydration as glycerize increases the amount of fluid in the muscle cells. This makes the substance a unique nitric oxide improving ingredient but is also perfect for daily use to keep muscle cells hydrated for improved performance and endurance and to keep your muscles full.
GlycerSize is an advanced form of glycerol that delivers more glycerol per gram than conventional glycerol products. As previous forms of glycerol products contained only between 10% and 25% glycerol, GlycerSize gives 65% glycerol content. Ordinary glycerol also has a tendency to clump quickly which glycerol size is significantly better at not doing.
Tip: GlycerSize has an improved effect when combined with adequate hydration. To get the most out of your GlycerSize supplement, make sure you consume enough water and stay properly hydrated.
AAKG - 2000mg
AAKG consists of the amino acid Arginine which is a classic nitric oxide enhancing component with but unlike regular l-arginine, AAKG, 2 Arginine molecules are bound to an alpha-ketoglutarate molecule. This gives a better absorbency compared to regular l-arginine.
Maltodextrin - 2000mg
Maltodextrin is a complex source of carbohydrates with rapid absorption in the body, which makes it a perfect source of energy before you train, ie fast carbohydrates.
Arginine nitrate - 1000mg
The patented substance NO3-T® Arginine Nitrate guarantees you extreme pump. A fusion of L-arginine and nitrate, 2 powerful substances gives you a long-lasting and incredible pump.
L-norvaline - 250mg
L-norvaline is a water-soluble amino acid and analogous to the branched-chain amino acid l-valine. The effect of L-norvaline can offer many different athletic benefits such as muscle maintenance, endurance and energy production and improved blood flow.
Gymnena Extract - 200mg
When and how to take PWO?
Pre-Workout is recommended to be taken 30 minutes before the workout, but may vary from person to person. However, a continuous intake of PWO can impair the effect of the product because the body quickly gets used to the intake. A tip is to pause your intake at regular intervals and let your body rest from the effects and avoid intake on the days you rest from exercise. When you feel that your body has had its break, you can use your performance enhancer again. If you are a new user of PWO, you should remember to slowly increase the dose and gradually get your body used to an intake.
On our cans there are instructions for dosing and do not forget to go through the substances that AWARE PWO contains and its effects. Do you have thoughts or are you unsure which PWO is right for you? Do not hesitate to contact us and we will help you with your choice.
