What is it?
EDGE is a potent pre-event or pre-training drink. Unlike any other formula on the market EDGE contains only the finest ingredients, in research backed inclusions, shown in numerous studies to help you realise your potential**. We've worked hard to ensure EDGE delivers the punch you need to your training, or racing, without leaving you crashing later in the day.
What's in it?
L – Citrulline Malate (4000mg*): this nitric oxide enhancing ingredient can help improve aerobic endurance, energy output, blood flow, and muscle recovery between bouts of exercise (1, 2).
- Creatine Monohydrate (2500mg*): Creatine, when consumed close to the time of exercise is proven to increase physical performance in high intensity exercise*. It's also one of the most researched ingredients available (3, 4).
- Beta Alanine (2000mg*): an amino acid that combines with histidine to form carnosine, reducing the fatiguing effects of lactic acid, buffering acidity, improving endurance performance (5, 6).
- Caffeine (115mg*) and L-Theanine(230mg*): ingestion of Caffeine, alongside L-Theanine from green tea, ensures just enough stimulation without any negative crashes or overexcitability. This combination is also shown to help improve attention span which, when taken individually, does not occur (7, 8, 9).
- Natural flavouring, with a subtle lemon and lime flavour.
* per single 11.85g serving.
** Creatine increases physical performance in successive bursts of short-term, high intensity exercise when a daily intake of 3g of Creatine is taken.
