How Do Pre-Workout Supplements Support My Body?

What’s all the rage about pre-workout products? Are they just a trend? Do they make a difference to your workout? And how?

Let’s face it. Pre-workout is an investment—especially if you’re choosing quality. So it makes sense if you want to know how pre-workout supplements actually interact with your body. And once you understand the basics, you’ll want to tailor your pre-workout product selections to your body and fitness, performance and health goals. Here’s your 101…


What’s a pre-workout?

Well, it’s all in the name! Usually taken 30–60 minutes before your workout, pre-workout supplements are designed to prepare your body for optimal performance. When pre-workouts hit your bloodstream, they deliver an energy and focus boost thanks to the additional carbohydrates, sugars and stimulants contained in the product.

How do pre-workouts support my body during a workout?

First of all, it’s important to note that different pre-workouts will help you achieve different results. AND, your unique body will respond differently to respective pre-workout formulas. Rather than viewing pre-workouts as a magic, energy-boosting potion, it’s better to understand how different ingredients might interact with your body.

Also, nothing beats having a healthy, balanced diet, a well-rounded exercise routine, great sleep habits and overall wellbeing. It’s always critical to consult your trusted health professionals to help you find out what your body needs to thrive and which sports food supplements will support your workout routine.



Caffeine is known to boost cognition, concentration and focus. It’s one of the most commonly found ingredients in pre-workout products. Many of us already know the benefits of caffeine intake in our daily routines, so it’s not hard to imagine how an ingredient like Caffeine Anhydrous can switch on your body and brain for a high-power workout.

It’s also worth noting that not every pre-workout containing caffeine is created equal. For instance, you may want to select a supplement with the right caffeine level (too much can tip you over into overstimulation). Alternatively, some people simply don’t need caffeine and prefer non-stimulant pre-workouts.

Creatine is an amino acid found in your body. By supplementing Creatine, you can increase your natural store. Creatine monohydrate is often used as a standalone pre-workout product to help you build muscle and recover faster. At ATP Science, we only use the best of the best ingredients—and in this case, the best is called Creapure®. This supplement is, without a doubt, the market leader in the industry today. It is recognised as the purest, highest quality micronised Creatine; and it’s plant-based too.

Other natural ingredients

We pride ourselves on using 100% natural ingredients across all our products. That’s why you’ll find supplements like L-Tyrosine, Acetyl L-Carnitine, Beta-Alanine and L-Citrulline Malate across our pre-workout range. In the simplest of terms, these ingredients bring out the best in you. Many of these substances are already found in your body. By supplementing them, you boost the positive benefits they provide.

Like, Beta-Alanine, for example. When you hit that intense peak in your workout and you’re almost at your limit, Beta-Alanine makes the burning sensation more bearable. L-Tyrosine is an amino acid that helps your body make it through when you’re under stress—activating two essential hormones adrenaline and norepinephrine. A final example: Acetyl L-Carnitine is another amino acid that helps turn fat into energy.
