myedge is a unique, premium pre-exercise energy drink that has been designed based on the latest scientific research, specifically to be taken BEFORE exercise.
myedge is so much more than 'just' an energy drink. Unlike any other formula on the market, myedge utilises just 7 natural, scientifically studied ingredients that have been shown to work together to help improve high intensity endurance performance*
Why is my myedge unique?
- Karbo-Lyn™: a unique carbohydrate derived from rice, corn and potato starch that due to its lower solution osmolality, is digested faster than glucose, fructose and other sugars (1), providing immediate energy for high intensity endurance exercise without any gastrointestinal distress.
- BCAA’s: leucine, isoleucine and valine, three essential amino acids that can help significantly reduce both physical and cognitive fatigue during endurance exercise (2).
- L – Citrulline Malate: this nitric oxide enhancing ingredient can help improve aerobic endurance, energy output, blood flow, and muscle recovery between bouts of exercise (3, 4, 5).
- Creatine Monohydrate: Creatine, when consumed close to the time of exercise is proven to increase physical performance in high intensity exercise*, as well as aiding in the uptake of carbohydrate, to name but a few of Creatine’s benefits (6, 7,).
- Beta Alanine: an amino acid that combines with histidine to form carnosine, reducing the fatiguing effects of lactic acid, buffering acidity, improving endurance performance (8, 9).
- Caffeine and L-Theanine: ingestion of Caffeine alongside L-Theanine from green tea ensures just enough stimulation but without any negative crashes or overexcitability, whilst also improving attention span which when taken individually, does not occur (10, 11, 12).
- Flavoured naturally, with a subtle hint of natural mango or peach.
* Creatine increases physical performance in successive bursts of short-term, high intensity exercise when a daily intake of 3g of Creatine is taken.
