CarnoSyn® Beta Alanine
Beta-alanine is a non-essential amino acid that’s naturally produced in the body, and also found in foods such as certain meat and fish. It combines with the amino acid histidine to form the dipeptide called carnosine. Over time, carnosine acts as a buffer to help delay the onset of lactic acid and muscle fatigue and failure, while building endurance and improving recovery. The body’s natural production and most diets, however, do not have enough beta-alanine needed to improve athletic performance. Supplementation with CarnoSyn® beta-alanine at the right dosages has been shown by more than 55 independent scientific studies to boost athletic performance.

Betaine acts as a methyl group donor to help reduce homocysteine levels and convert it into methionine. It has been suggested in clinical studies to improve muscle strength and power production. Betaine also increases levels of SAM-e, which have been linked to improved mood and cognitive function.
Citrulline is a non-essential, non-protein amino acid that forms during the urea cycle and forms ornithine when combined with carbon dioxide. Research has shown that Citrulline supplementation can increase your resistance and endurance training by increasing blood Arginine levels (even better than Arginine supplementation itself). You can expect improved muscle endurance, more blood flow/circulation, decreased muscle soreness and less fatigue during training.
Tyrosine is a non-essential amino acid and a precursor for epinephrine, norepinephrine and dopamine. These chemicals primarily produce alertness, increased energy and improved mental focus.
Taurine is the second most abundant amino acid in the body. It is mostly present in striated type 2 muscle fibers. Taurine supplementation aids in controlled movement of water in and out of the muscle which promotes proper hydration and fluid levels. During training, taurine levels drop and force output decreases, specifically in fast twitch muscle fibers. Supplementing with taurine allows for the muscle to maintain proper taurine levels, which increases muscular endurance.
Caffeine stimulates the central nervous system by blocking adenosine, a neurotransmitter that normally causes a calming effect in the body. Ingestion of caffeine prior to exercise has been found to provide extended endurance in moderately strenuous training.
Infinergy (Di-Caffeine Malate) is a patented ingredient developed by innovative supplement ingredient supplier Creative Compounds. Infinergy is a precise combination of caffeine and malic acid fused together using an ionic bond into a compound known as di-caffeine malate. Infinergy contains approximately 75% caffeine and 25% malic acid by molecular weight.
The malic acid in Infinergy works to buffer the salts in caffeine, allowing for easier digestion whilst also replenishing the energy produced by caffeine, which helps to minimise the dreaded post-caffeine energy ‘crash’.
Huperzine Serrata Extract
Huperzine is a cognitive enhancer that increases levels of acetylcholine and muscle contraction. It’s a crucial ingredient that helps make Flight one of the best pre workout supplements available.
BioPerine® is a patented extract obtained from black pepper fruits (Piper nigrum) standardized minimum to 95% Piperine. BioPerine® has been used as a bioavailability enhancer for over 20 years. BioPerine® may be co-administered with various nutrients to enhance their bioavailability.
