Imagine a product that delivered cutting-edge science at clinical doses and wasn't loaded with sugar, fillers or made you crash.

Now stop imagining, you've just found it. This is Your New Pre-Workout RITUAL™

A Closer Look


Beta-Alanine IS a non-essential amino acid, beta-alanine combines with the amino acid histidine to form carnosine. In muscle cells carnosine buffers against the hydronium ions and lactic acid which forms during exercise and can lead to muscle fatigue. Supplementation with beta-alanine can support strength, endurance and recovery.* Each scoop of RITUAL™ contains 1.6g of beta-alanine.*


Citrulline - The 'pump' amino acid, has been clinically researched and is suggested to enhance nitric oxide levels better arginine.* Studies suggest that citrulline increases the rate of ATP synthesis during exercise and greater phosphocreatine recovery after exercise.* Citrulline also reduces lactic acid and ammonia levels, which leads to better muscle performance and increased endurance.*


Creatine monohydrate is critical to the energy replenishment cycle of muscle. Regular use of creatine can enhance power, endurance and energy levels while exercising allowing you to train harder longer and amplify results.*


Trimethylglycine is also known as betaine anhydrous, this amino acid analogue helps reduce homocysteine levels in the body and stimulates production of creatine in muscle cells.* TMG can act as a methyl donor to help prevent dehydration of cells. As a supplement TMG can also amplify power output and training volume.*


AgmaPure™ is a patented form of ‘green’ agmatine sulfate is not chemically synthesized, rather derived by fermentation, making it the highest purity material available. Agmatine has several functions in the body including: amplifying nitric oxide production, supporting the release of catecholamines, increasing GnRH levels and even potentially testosterone levels.*


Xanthaurine is the active ingredient from Styphnolobium japonicum – a powerful antioxidant. Its effects have been extensively studied for the promotion of enhanced endurance. Less known however is its ability to help amplify nitric oxide levels 300% acutely after ingestion, making it core to the ‘pump’ properties of RITUAL™.*


N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine is a highly soluble form of the amino acid L-Tyrosine, and an important precursor in the production of epinephrine, dopamine and norepinephrine. These hormones contribute to elevated energy, mood and mental alertness.*


This trademarked form of Dendrobium nobile extract is concentrated 1000%. Traditionally dendrobium is used for its antioxidant and immunomodulatory properties, and has been studied for its ability to support the immune system.*


PEA is a monamine alkaloid that can support mood, mental acuity, energy and focus.* Although relatively short-lived, when combined with Hordenine, the effects may be prolonged.*


This stimulant help to extend the effects of monoamine compounds.*


Naturally occurring in plants like Nelumbo nucifera, higenamine (or norcoclaurine) is a powerful bioactive alkaloid that acts as a beta-adrenergic receptor agonist, and can trigger an elevated thermogenic and anabolic response.*


This patented combination of Astralagus and Panax notoginseng amplifies the absorption of amino acids and vitamins. This maximizes the impact of the full-dose RITUAL™ formulation.*

I got a small container of this at my local supplement store. My first reaction was that it tastes HORRIBLE compared to other pre-workout I used. Yuck. It gave some good energy but faded less than 30min into my workout. Disappointing.

I honestly don't know how more people don't know about Ritual...I seriously think it is one of the best pre-workouts I've tried in terms of effects. My energy and focus were amazing with this product and I had pretty good endurance as well. The only thing keeping me from giving it a 10 is the flavor could be better (I tried icy blue freeze). Not bad by any means, but I've definitely had better. Overall excellent product and worth a try for sure!

This is my go to pre-workout, and I love it! In fact, I haven't really felt the need to try anything else since getting on the Ritual train. It gives me a super clean rush of energy that never fails to carry me through an entire workout. The energy is great, but the mental clarity and focus are what really separate Ritual from the pack. Dendrobium is where its at, and I'm very surprised so few companies use it. If you are lifting seriously, you will most likely need two scoops, but it's like that with most pres. Its also no coincidence that the bad reviews of this product seem to all be written by people who don't really lift (sad but true...). You will not regret trying Ritual, trust me.

I personally never took pre workouts until i was given a sample. Since that day, i have been using it. I actually focus and get an insane pump and drive. I feel so motivated and slay every workout no matter what day or mood i am in. I truly love the flavours and I love how it delivers exactly what it promises. I used to think pre workouts were a joke, but this stuff isnt. I love it!!!

Before I start the review, I just want to state that the reason that it is not a verified purchase, is because I bought this at the Arnold Classic. That being said, this preworkout has become my new favorite. I've tried almost everything out there, so I'm at a point where I know exactly what I want in my preworkout, and this has it. I use two scoops since I am very stimulant tolerant, but I think that one would be sufficient for most users. The energy and focus I get about thirty minutes after taking this is great, but I never have experienced a crash afterwards. I love Citrulline and Agmapure, and this has both in the correct doses, so of course the pump is amazing. Buy this, you will be glad you did. PS, flavor is amazing.
