BEAM x Adaptogens: The Pre Workout 


Stress can happen in so many different forms as we all know but sometimes our diet leads to more anxiety than needed. For example, energy drinks packed with synthetic caffeine cause stress on the body and the mind. This is the same thing with 90% of the pre workouts on the market. They create a “jittery” feeling where you are not in a proper state of mind. If you cannot handle your stress, how are you going to handle your workout?


This is the key reason why we used adaptogens in our pre workout along with natural caffeine. BEAM cares about what you put in your body along with how it will make you better. With everything we do, we have the customer in mind.


BEAM pre workout uses the very expensive and very reputable KSM-66 Ashwagandha adaptogen in its formula. KSM-66 Ashwagandha is a branded, full-spectrum extract, with the highest concentration of all major root only extracts available on the market today. It is produced using a unique proprietary extraction process, based on “Green Chemistry” principles, without using alcohol or any other chemical solvent. You can learn more about KSM-66 HERE


Ashwagandha is becoming the leader in adaptogens due to its long term benefits with constant use. The clinical trials done with the KSM-66 Ashwagandha we uses shows to: 

  • Help reduce stress, anxiety, cortisol levels and stress-related food cravings*
  • Help promote enhanced memory and cognitive function*
  • Help promote endurance, strength, muscle size and muscle recovery rate*
  • Help enhance sexual performance health in both men and women, and testosterone in men*

 To “be amazing” you have to put yourself first and whether that is fitness or combating against real world stressors, we want to make products that help you get there.
