BEAM x Adaptogens: The Pre-Workout
Stress can happen in many different forms as we all know and many people don't realize that our diet can contribute to our anxiety levels. 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.
BEAM pre-workout uses an expensive, yet 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 use 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, whether that is fitness related or combating against real world stressors, we want to make products that help you on that journey.
