SNAC PED Review
When purchasing a pre-workout supplement you’ve got to do your homework – there are a lot of options out there and many don’t stand up to the marketing labels and advertisements.
SNAC (Scentific Nutrition for Advanced Conditioning) has just put a new supplement on the shelves in PED, its latest Performance Enhancing Drink.
Does this product live up to the hype and will it safely provide you with the correct nutritional combination to excel athletically – whether on the field in, in the gym or on a bike? We’ll put PED to the test and find out where it stacks up.
What They Claim
SNAC claims that PED “is formulated to increase alertness, elevate mood, improve physical stamina and enhance your overall sense of well-being.”
The company has marketed PED as a solution to improved energy levels, reaction time, strength, mental focus, stamina, endurance and performance.
What We Discovered
PED’s key ingredients are fairly straight forward. This product is not the conglomeration of multiple proprietary blends – the key ingredients are a combination of Vitamin C, Biotin and Folic Acid and Caffeine with the following antioxidants and amino acids:
A substance that turns body fat to energy. Cartinine acts as an antioxidant neutralizing free radicals and decreasing muscle fatigue by lowering ammonia accumulation in the body.
An amino acid that supports neurological development and aids in regulation of water and mineral salt levels in the bloodstream. Studies have shown that Taurine may improve athletic performance.
The amino acid, Citrulline, promotes aerobic energy and reduces lactic acid build up in the muscles.
Beta Alanine is key in promoting elevated Carnosine levels, which allow athletes higher intensity training. When an excess of hydrogen ions are present, muscles lose strength, power and endurance. By increasing Carnosine levels with Beta-Alanine, muscle fibers soak up more ions and maintain maximum strength.
A supplement that helps the body produce Nitric Oxide, remove ammonia from the body and release hormones.
An essential amino acid that converts into dopamine and norepinephrine to improve alertness and mood.
R-Lipoic Acid is an essential coenzyme involved in the utilization of glucose and energy production in cells.
The product does contain 120 mg of Caffeine per serving, which is less than many Caffeinated Supplements on the market.
SNAC recommends one scoop of powder with 12 oz of water approximately 20 minutes prior to exercise. Because the product does contain a dosage of Caffeine, it’s recommended not to be utilized prior to bedtime. Each container offers about 22 servings.
What They’re Saying
Since PED was recently released, there aren’t a ton of reviews circulating. However those who have reviewed this product were impressed with the energy sustained throughout a workout as well as the taste of the Raspberry Lemonade flavoring.
What We Suggest
So long as you are comfortable with Caffeinated supplements we can’t see a reason not to recommend PED at this point. The dosage of Caffeine is in moderation so long as you do not have any known medical or heart conditions. PED’s traditional rate is $69.95, but the product is still on sale by the manufacturer for a launch special of $32.95.
