5% Nutrition Code Red Series Pre-Workout Supplement Facts

The Code Red Series of products from 5% Nutrition were formulated with cost in mind. The Code Red Series Pre-Workout is a cost effective formula that keeps it simple and to the point for your workout experience.

CodeREDPREL-Citrulline – 4,000 mg

L-Citrulline is an amino acid that once in the body, converts into the amino acid l-arginine, which converts into nitric oxide. Once this happens, nitric oxide relaxes blood vessels, allowing greater blood flow to your muscles, and creating extreme muscle cell volume – in other words, the pump. Why not just take arginine? Because arginine does not absorb as well as citrulline, which bypasses digestion and goes right to the bloodstream. That means that citrulline does a better job of increasing arginine levels in the body than arginine. Finally, It increases nutrient & oxygen delivery to your muscles. This improves exercise performance and between-set recovery.

GlycerSize – 1,000 mg

Glycerol is a sugar alcohol that acts as an intermediate in fat and carbohydrate metabolism. It also increases the total water volume in the body. This does several things. First, it promotes extreme muscle cell volume, or what’s commonly called water-based pumps. It also hydrates your muscles and promotes greater training endurance. GlycerSize™ is a trademarked ingredient that was formerly known as GlycerPump™. It’s a branded type of glycerol powder that yields 65% glycerol and is more stable than regular glycerol. 

L-Taurine – 1,000 mg

Taurine is a type of amino acid that’s found in high concentrations in the muscles. It’s also found in the heart, brain, and eyes. Taurine has several benefits, including supporting the central nervous system, promoting enhanced cognitive function, and regulating the actions of electrolyte minerals in the body. Similar to glycerol, it also pulls water into the muscles, making it important for hydration and increased muscle cell volume (or, water-based pumps). 

L-Tyrosine – 500 mg

Tyrosine is an amino acid with an important role in the manufacture of the neurotransmitters dopamine and norepinephrine. Dopamine plays a key role in the brain’s reward system. That’s a group of brain processes that control desire, motivation, and cravings. Also, it’s involved in the manufacture of the neurotransmitters epinephrine and norepinephrine. Both of these are considered hormones and neurotransmitters. Norepinephrine helps the body and the brain prepare for action. This is the “fight or flight” response. Plus, norepinephrine increases alertness, elevates attention, and enhances memory.

Natural Caffeine – 300 mg

Caffeine needs no introduction as it is easily the most popular energy compound on the planet. Of course, caffeine increases energy, alertness, focus, and concentration. It also supports fat metabolism and supports exercise performance. While there are synthetic versions, caffeine is a naturally occurring compound. You can be sure that we use only natural caffeine in Code Red Series PRE. 

Alpha GPC – 150 mg

Also known as Alpha-Glyceryl Phosphoryl Choline, this ingredient is a type of fat that contains naturally high amounts of B vitamin choline. As part of the B-vitamin complex, choline helps maintain cell membranes. More importantly, it’s used to make the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, commonly called the “learning” neurotransmitter. Acetylcholine has a primary role in regulating brain function and muscle control. 

Huperzia Serrata Extract – 300 mcg

This ingredient enhances focus and indirectly increases levels of acetylcholine. Huperzine A does this by blocking an enzyme known as acetylcholinesterase, which controls the breakdown of acetylcholine. By blocking this enzyme, more acetylcholine is available for focus enhancement.

Final Takeaway

When I saw the email about this new lineup from 5% Nutrition I was pretty excited to see a new for the company. When I saw that with this new "Code Red" line was less "intense" than most of the current products on the market all I could do was smile. Not everyone wants to pound 400mg+ of caffeine just to get a good pre-workout product, and this lineup does just that. Takes it back to the basics, and for that I couldn't be more appreciative.
