Put your seatbelt on because we’re about to take you on a wild ride! Where are we going? To a little destination called … okay, you got us. Talking about workout supplement ingredients like taurine isn’t always the nonstop thrill ride we promised — but the benefits taurine can provide you on the field or in the gym are vast, so hang with us …
Energy Formula isn’t the only energy booster that touts the use of taurine, an amino acid that is also found in fish and meat. Lots of energy drinks use it and there’s a solid reason as to why — taurine has been shown to help an athlete’s performance.
A 2003 study had male subjects ages 18 to 20 ride a bicycle until they were worn out. They then had the subjects take taurine for a week prior to exercising. After the seven days, each person showed an increase in VO2max — which is the fancy term for maximal oxygen uptake. The researchers believe the increase in V02max was due the antioxidant properties in taurine.
Another study involved 21 subjects being divided into two groups; one group was given placebo, and another was given a taurine supplement. After two weeks, the group taking the taurine supplement demonstrated an increase in strength levels and a decrease in muscle soreness compared to those taking the placebo.
With Energy Formula, the idea was to create a workout supplement that was slightly less intense than Pre Game Formula without sacrificing what you, the lifter, would get out of it. So we engineered it with ingredients such as caffeine, KarboLyn (a fastdigesting complex carb) and taurine to create more of a steady energy flow.
Of course — not that we don’t remind you enough! — Energy Formula is NSF Certified for Sport, which means it’s been inspected and verified by the NSF International and is label-claim-verified and banned-substance-free according to the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
At Proven4 we believe that proper nutrition, a strict training regimen, and our NSF Certified for Sport workout supplements —Pre Game Formula, Energy Formula, and Recovery Push Formula — can help you achieve optimal results in the gym and on the field.
