Caffeine Content in Pre Workouts

How Much Caffeine is in Pre Workout Supplements

Before buying a new pre workout, do you typically check the ingredients? You should, and caffeine content is reason #1.

Ever wonder how much caffeine is in that pre workout drink that makes you go absolute twitchy-eye crazy?

Chances are you would be surprised to know what stimulant magic is taking place in every serving size.

What’s the deal with caffeine anyways?

Well, in an overly simplified (biochemist head-down in shame) nutshell – caffeine amps up your body by preventing energy producing signals from being naturally degraded. Therefore, these energy signals and products just keep piling up allowing you to go-go-go. And of course the most noted effects of this are increased energy, metabolism, and mental clarity.

However over time, your body gets used to this and builds a tolerance.

This causes many supplement brands to do the easy and dumb thing – just add more caffeine!

Next thing you know, you’re basically a caffeine addict. Good for their business, aye?

Common Caffeine Additions

Vimpocetine – CNS stimulant common in focus supplements and for the treatment of age related memory loss. Substantially increases focus and alertness.

Synephrine – Stimulant compound similar to caffeine. Effective Thermogenic.

Choline – Natural B-vitamin that’s great for memory, focus, and energy.

Caffeine is off the chain these days, right? This offers us a great opportunity for power and muscle gain, but also many inherent risks if we don’t properly self-moderate these super supplements. Personally, pushing 400 mgs of caffeine is out of my threshold to handle.

How Caffeine Works

A lot of these supplements also contain corollary stimulants like Synephrine. When combined with caffeine, the energy effect can be multiplied. There you have it! Feel free to comment on what we found or add to the list.

Is there anything that reduces the effects of high caffeine?

The ingredient l-theanine can be used to calm the heart-rate increases caused by caffeine intake. This smooths the experience, and makes caffeine more functional. You can take l-theanine with basically any caffeine dosage, but the 2:1 ratio is recommended.
