Here are the Pros and Cons

Now for the part, you have been waiting for… pros and cons! Starting with the cons, these are the primary issues that people have with taking any pre-workout:

  • It may make you feel jittery. Caffeine is one of the primary ingredients in many pre-workout supplements.
  • It May cause water retention. Another popular ingredient in many pre-workout formulas is creatine, which has been shown to increase high-intensity exercise capacity and lean body mass gains from exercise.
  • It may trigger mild reactions. Two additional ingredients in many pre-workout supplements are beta-alanine and niacin (vitamin B3). Beta alanine is an amino acid that reduces acidity in your muscles during exercise. High doses of niacin, can trigger a blood rush to the surface of your skin, resulting in red patches.
  • It may cause digestive upset. This is caused by several other ingredients, such as sodium bicarbonate, magnesium, creatine, and caffeine. Also, using too little water when mixing pre-workout supplements may likewise upset your digestion. 
  • It May cause headaches. Citrulline is also added to some pre-workouts to increase blood flow to your muscles during exercise, resulting in enhanced muscle building. This increase in blood flow affects your brain as well as your muscles, leading some people to experience headaches and migraines. This is due to blood pressure changes in your brain’s small blood vessels.
