Beta Alanine


ultra performing
pre-workout supplement*

L-Citrulline – is an amino acid that is a pre-cursor to l-arginine. It also is a byproduct of endothial nitric oxide production. L-citrulline is converted into l-arginine creating more blood level l-arginine to be used to create nitric oxide. Research suggests that oral supplementation of l-citrulline is not metabolized in the intestine or liver and is thus a good supplement to support increased nitric oxide levels.*

Beta-alanine – is an amino acid that promotes more muscular energy. A study published in a 2010 issue of Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise concluded that supplementation with beta-alanine increases muscle’s carnosine content and, therefore, total muscle buffer capacity, with the potential to improve physical performance during high-intensity exercise and to delay the onset of neuromuscular fatigue.*

Betaine Anhydrous – is a natural nutrient  that promotes  hydration and performance, especially related to physical activity. Betaine is derived from the molasses of sugar beets. Also known as trimethylglycine or TMG, betaine is found in many healthful foods, such as whole grains, spinach and beets. Recently, betaine has been the subject of a range of studies indicating health and performance benefits. These human trials demonstrate a significant improvement in physical performance, especially in strength, power and endurance.*

HydroMax™ – is the industry’s first stable, highly concentrated form of powdered glycerol. Glycerol when ingested creates an expansion of fluid volume in tissues called hyperhydration. This is what is responsible for the engorged appearance experienced by many taking HydroMax™. *
Additionally, research suggests that glycerol:

  • Has been shown to decrease core body temperature and heart rate in exercising individuals.*
  • Supports proper hydration.*
  • Enhances performance in environmental heat and humidity.*
  • May Improve efficiency in exercise, thermoregulation and decreased physiological stress.*

Agmapure® (agmatine sulfate) – is derived from the amino acid L-Arginine. It is a neurotransmitter and neuromodulator. It also has a pronounced effect on exercised muscles giving them that "pumped" look. This pump effect is thought to be the result of two pathways,1. improved nutrient partitioning leading to more glycogen storage and increased water retention within the muscle, 2. increases in nitric oxide. AGMAPURE® is produced by a natural biological process and it contains no putrescine related impurity.*

L-Taurine – is a non-essential, sulfur-containing amino acid that plays a role in several metabolic processes, such as heart contraction and antioxidant activity.* It is essential for both cardiovascular function and development and function of skeletal muscle. In an exercise study conducted with eleven men ages 18-20, it was found that supplementation with L-taurine significantly increases VO2 max, exercise time to exhaustion, and maximal workload occurred.* The results suggest that L-taurine may enhance the capacity of exercise due to its cellular protective properties.*

Choline bitartrate – is a water-soluble B vitamin that is a precursor to acetylcholine, one of the crucial brain chemicals. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter used throughout the body; it helps to control muscle contraction.Reductions in plasma choline associated with strenuous exercise may reduce acetylcholine release, and could thereby affect performance and mood.* Research suggests that choline levels drop during exercise, and supplementing choline prior to exercise can enhance pre-workout vigor and reduce intra- and post-workout fatigue.*

I have been taking this for just over a week and a half. And I absolutely love it! I love the slightly lower than normal amount of caffeine, I can take this later at night before Tae Kwon Do, or a late gym session and still be able to sleep. No Jitters. Or.. If I need to, I can take a double dose before the gym to REALLY get myself going! That said, i've found that I really don't need to. 1 scoop gets me all the pump I need, as well as great focus, and endurance to get through my workout, from the quick 20 minute lunch session, to a grueling 2 hour leg day. If you're in the market for a new pre, Pump Igniter is an amazing choice. PS. If you are looking for a new L-Carnitine product... Fireball L-Carnitine from Top Secret is FREAKIN amazing!!

I can feel it kick in about 20 mins after ingesting it. I love the energy it gives. I have taking many pre workouts and this product is one of my favorites.

Great product right here. Love the pumps. Great long lasting pumps. Definitely gets me going and keeps me going even after my workout. I recommend this product to everyone looking for that killer pump.

Best fruit punch I've tried. No chemical aftertaste and very good mixability. Slightly foamy. Focus was very good. it kicked in 15-20 minutes. Energy was a bit low, in comparison to focus. Pumps were great. Muscle fullness was lacking slightly due to only 1 gram of glycerol. Overall, it's a very good pre.

I've used every main stream pre-workout and they either make you extremely jittery and crash hard or they don't work long enough to complete a decent work out. This product I saw and decided to take a leap of faith on a new pre-workout and I was amazed I don't get the jitters and I get a great pump in everytime also I hit a plateau long before this pre-workout and in just 3 weeks exceeded my plateau. Of all the fruit punch flavored pre-workouts it isnt absolutely discusting.

I bought a tub of each flavor during one of their sales and have not regretted it. I like the open profile and with 6g of Citrulline in it you can't go wrong if you're chasing the pump like I am. Both flavors taste great and it's not too heavy on the stims, which is great for me since I work out in the afternoons/evenings. Definitely recommend.

Pump Igniter Black is the reincarnation of the original Pump Igniter. For whatever reason the original Pump Igniter was discontinued a while back and later reintroduced with a new formula and a slightly new name. Let me say that I loved the original stuff. It was the best bang for your buck pre-workout and it fell right at the top of list on Labdoor for best overall value pre-workout. I'm not going to paste the link here but just google Top 10 PreWorkout Labdoor and you'll find their list. This new "Black" version is very disappointing and is not worthy to carry the "Pump Igniter" name. The new formula falls flat on it's face and I don't recommend it. On top of everything it costs a bit more now. Top Secret took a winning formula, changed it, and drove it into the ground. It's unfortunate but I'm moving on from their pre-workout.

First review, free product reps? :) Overall seems solid but I need more time with it. I was in the mood for something new and I liked what I saw on the back so with little to no research on the product I decided to give it a go. Taste is good, doesn't mess with my stomach which is huge for me and I really like the profile. I don't like pre workouts with really high stims or under dosed blends. I prefer more of a low stim that will help more with pump/growth and I am hoping this will be my go to for a while. Workouts seem good with this and I look forward to finishing the tub. I keep things simple these days and I am hoping this will continue to impress so I can stick with it.
