What Does a Pre-Workout Supplement Do?

The ingredients and effects of pre-workout supplements vary by product, but most products use ingredients like caffeine to provide an energy boost or creatine to help increase muscle mass. Athletes typically consume pre-workout supplements as pills or as powders mixed into drinks or soft foods. You can also mix pre-workout supplements with protein powders, which can help improve exercise performance, increase muscle protein synthesis, prevent muscle tissue breakdown, increase energy, increase cognition, and enhance your pump.

A critical element to a good pre-workout supplement is Vitamin B (in combination with other vital supplements).  Vitamin B is a group of eight water-soluble vitamins that play important roles in cell metabolism. These vitamins are essential for maintaining healthy skin, hair, eyes, and liver. They also help the body convert food into energy and play a crucial role in brain function. Absorbing Vitamin B prior to a workout can dramatically increase an athlete’s energy, and improve recovery. 

The eight B vitamins are:

  1. Vitamin B1 (thiamine)
  2. Vitamin B2 (riboflavin)
  3. Vitamin B3 (niacin)
  4. Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid)
  5. Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine)
  6. Vitamin B7 (biotin)
  7. Vitamin B9 (folate)
  8. Vitamin B12 (cobalamin)

Each of these vitamins has specific functions in the body and can be found in a variety of foods. For example, vitamin B1 is found in whole grains, nuts, and legumes, while vitamin B12 is found in animal products such as meat, fish, and dairy.

A deficiency in any of the B vitamins can cause a range of health problems. For example, a deficiency in vitamin B12 can cause anemia and nerve damage, while a deficiency in vitamin B6 can cause skin rashes and anemia. It is important to get enough of these vitamins through a healthy diet or supplements to maintain optimal health.

Another critical supplemental for a good pre-workout supplement is creatine. Creatine optimizes exercise performance, muscle mass, strength, thermoregulation, recovery, and intramuscular stores of phosphocreatine.  Additionally, it supports brain health by replenishing cerebral storage of creatine and enhances the facilitation of synaptic glutamate and neurotransmitter uptake.
