These incorporated within this formula as a nice addition to help you from crashing and provide you with a nice smooth transition.
L-Citrulline - fermented
Excellent for muscle pumps and oxygenate the blood cells so you can push yourself harder for longer and again massive dose and couldn't ask for any more.
QU995 (Quercetin Anhydrous) -
Helps with blood flow and endurance and is used to help treat hardening of arteries as well and helps to neutralise free radicals and you can have a better effect in reference to your training performance but also recover faster and free radicals are what breaks down cells.
Muscle Fuel Matrix - 3.5g
L-Leucine - fermented 1750mg
L-Isoleucine - fermented 875mg
L-Valine- fermented 875mg
These are Branched Chain Amminos with a 2:1:1 ratio, with a nice dose of those as well.
L-Leucine - 3g -
L-Leucine has been known to help with muscle protein synthesis, so this compound is something that will have an anabolic activating compound to it so this is something to prime your body.
Carnosyn (Beta-Alanine) - 1.6g
This is exactly 50% of the clinical dose and the other 50% is in Kaged Muscles Intra-workout the In-Kaged and that is the reason for the underdose of that ingredient.
BetaPower - Natural Betaine - 2g
Betaine helps with muscle power so it works with muscle carnosine to help with the production of creatine, which will allow you to produce more force and increase recovery as well.
The evidence on this ingredient and the research is fantastic, it's not commonly used in pre-workouts.
Patented Creatine HCL - 1500mg
This is a massive dose and that's a suitable dose for a big 120kg guy, creatine HCl has excellent solubility in that it is absorbed much more effectively and with no side effects of no gastric upset.
Creatine HCL will also help to recycle energy for explosive lifting and turn ADP into ATP so you can keep going harder for longer and stimulate more muscle tissue.
Coconut Water Powder - 500m
Coconut water powder is that is a great source of potassium and other nutrients like forspherus, calcium and magnesium and it is extremely micro-nutrient dense and excellent for helping with hydration and preventing dehydration.
1-2 per cent drop in hydration, you get a 10-20% drop in performance if you were going to train when you haven't really had a lot of water during the day you notice that your workout performance would decrease
It's not just about drinking a lot of water, it come's down to absorbing the water and allowing it being soaked up into the muscle cell.
Taurine - 2g
Is great for muscle hydration, muscular endurance, and brain function. I am a big fan of Taurine and it is an essential in any pre-workout and 200mg is an extremely high dose.
PurCaf Caffeine - Organic Caffeine - 274mg
So this yields 90% caffeine and this is organically plant-sourced, it's super clean and is the cleanest caffeine you can get. It comes from green coffee extract and it will give you a more clean energy feeling than Caffeine Anhydrous. This is going to give you a cleaner burning effect and also will give you a much better sustained release to keep you going for longer.
Kaged Muscle Pre-Kaged is a pre-workout primer, so it's definitely not going to blow your head off and if you are looking for that in this product you are going to be sadly disappointed.
But if you are looking for something that is going to really help you perform better and work consistently with every workout.
I found that if you consumed it like this 20-30 minutes before your workout the effects kicked in faster, you got the tingles from the Beta-Alanine and a real urge to train.
The effect from the PurCaf was very different from Caffeine Anhydrous, so much cleaner and really came across as a higher euphoric sense of wellbeing with a gentle kick of energy
After consuming Pre-Kaged you're going to yield 220mg of caffeine from this product. So it's more of a sustained release from this product, with the ability to focus during your workout was magnificent.
There is definitely evidence of increased muscle power and the ability to keep performing and lifting the required amount of weight consistently.
Hydration was excellent which related directly to the ability to produce muscle pumps.
Mix-Ability + Flavours
So it comes in 2 flavours, Fruit Punch and Krisp Apple and it has a gigantic protein scoop and the powder is very fine.
The product mixes very well, with a bit cloudy but to be expected when you have that many ingredients in a product.
The flavour is excellent, considering the ingredients in there.
You're not going to get some Candy Apple like a product which has 1g of active ingredients within it.
It's not too sweet which I like but it does have a slight sourness to it and it certainly does mix very well and go down very easily and doesn't leave a whole lot of residue.
Value For Money
Pre-Kaged can be purchased online or at any Spartansuppz Retail Store and is a 20 serve product and retails at $69.95.
When you take into account the kind of ingredients within this blend and the quality of those ingredients, its easy to distinguish just how great the value for money really is.
