What IS PRESK8?
As a hockey player you know how hard you work on the ice. You know that you have to give 110% during each and every shift. And you know how important it is to be able to skate faster, hit harder, stay calmer, think more clearly, handle the puck better and react more quickly than the other guy…and to do it all-out until the final whistle blows. We know it too. That’s why we developed PreSk8! Scientific research shows that the powerful nutrients found in the PreSk8 formula can:
- Increase total muscular work capacity by 12%, keeping you stronger, longer.
- Enhance bursting power and speed by 16%, getting you to the puck first.
- Extend overall endurance by 24%, keeping your legs and lungs strong all game.
- Speed reaction time by 42%, allowing you to get the jump on your opponent.
What’s IN PRESK8?
Rhodiola Rosea extract – Researchers have found that this “adaptogenic” herbal extract has the unique ability to simultaneously enhance mental function and create an emotional calming effect. They found this effect allows athletes to stay calm, while increasing mental performance by over 10%, while under extreme physical conditions. Rhodiola has also been shown to possess anti-inflammatory effects, enhance endurance by up to 24%, increase anti-oxidant protection, and increase VO2 max.
Tyrosine – This conditionally essential amino acid acts as a natural precursor to the synthesis of specific neurotransmitters (namely dopamine and norepinephrine) involved in mental acuity and muscular performance. Research shows that supplemental tyrosine can enhance levels of these neurotransmitters in the body. This in turn has been shown to significantly increase mental function and physical performance by up to 14%.
Caffeine – Caffeine acts to enhance performance in multiple ways, including its ability to spare glycogen energy reserves (thus increasing endurance), enhance cognitive processing speed and decrease perceived exertion. It has also been shown to speed reaction time and increase muscular power output.
Taurine – Taurine is the most abundant amino acid in muscle cells, performing a variety of crucial metabolic functions to keep muscles performing optimally. Intense exercise has been shown to rapidly deplete taurine in the muscle. Supplemental taurine prior to exercise halts this loss, thus supporting optimal muscle performance. Taurine also helps to clear lactic acid from hard working muscles, acts to protect muscles from exercise induced injury, and helps sustain optimal muscle performance during sustained bouts of maximal exercise.
Maltodextrin / Fructose Complex – Carbohydrate supplementation has consistently been shown in University research to enhance prolonged, continuous, variable-intensity exercise by providing a readily available fuel source and sparing muscle glycogen. Our staged-release carbohydrate complex provides you with the perfect, clean-burning fuel source to achieve this goal.
B-Vitamin Complex – Certain B-Vitamins play a major role in converting fuel to energy in muscle cells. If you become even mildly depleted of B-Vitamins your performance will suffer dramatically. During high intensity exercise great amounts of B-Vitamins are lost through sweat. Our unique B-Vitamin complex will ensure that your levels remain optimal throughout the game. One other benefit of our blend is the combination of 2 special forms of Niacin, while acts as a vasodilator, helping to increase blood flow and nutrient delivery to hard working muscles.
