Apollon Nutrition Desperado Supplement Facts

Desperado will be Apollon Nutrition’s 40/20-serving cost-effective pre-workout. Do not lot the term “cost-effective” fool you as the brand maintains it’s promise of integrity and premium position with a “loaded” formula at an affordable price point.

Apollon Nutrition Desperado Supplement FactsL-Citrulline – 8g

Citrulline is the precurrsor to Arginine in the body. This means when you consume exogenous Citrulline, when it is broken down in the body it is converted to Argininie which then increases nitric oxide. Effects of Citrulline start at as little as 3-4g. Users are going to get 8g of Citrulline per full scoop of Desperado.

Beta-Alanine – 3.2g

Beta-Alanine has become one of the most popular ingredients in sports nutrition supplements. Beta-Alanine can cause the “tingles” but the primary purpose of Beta-Alanine is to help improve muscular endurance through the buffering of lactic acid. Beta-Alanine is an ingredient that should be taken daily for saturation. It can help alleviate muscle breakdown and soreness as well. Users should look for 3-2g-6.4g dosages

Arginine Nitrate (NO3-T) – 3g

This is a massive dosage of Arginine Nitrate in a “cost-effective” formula. Exogenous nitrates have been proven to increase blood flow significantly improving your overall pump. Not only does this contribute to the “look” but the primary benefits are to bring nutrient rich blood into the muscle to aid in the repair and recovery process.

Betaine Anhydrous – 2.5g

Betaine Anhydrous has several responsibilities. The first is to improve overall performance. Supplementing with Betaine can lead to improved output in strength and power. Betaine Anhydrous has also been shown to help improve recovery. You find Betaine in many stim based and non-stim pre-workout powders. The 2.5g dosage is great to see.

L-Tyrosine – 2g

Tyrosine is a non-essential amino acid that aids in memory and focus. The 2g dosage has become the standard, but benefits do start at as little as 1g. Tyrosine can help improve mind/muscle connection in the gym given you a boost in overall performance through improved cognitive function.

Himalayan Sea Salt – 500mg

Adding sea salt to a pre-workout is to aid in hydration. This can also help lead to fuller pumps (more hydration = better pumps). The 500mg dosage has become the standard.

Theobromine – 300mg

Theobromie is a metabolite of caffeine. It has similar properties to caffeine. It can help improve alertness and energy levels. It can also aid in increasing thermogenesis to help elevate the body temperature. The 300mg dosage is on the higher side which isn’t a bad thing.

Caffeine Anhydrous – 275g

Caffeine Anhydrous is a synthetic form of caffeine that is one of the fastest acting versions of caffeine. The 275mg dosage is a great starting point for many users in the pre-workout category.

Citicoline – 250mg

Citicoline is an effective choline ingredient that will improve focus, memory and overall cognition. The 250mg is the starting point where users report positive effects on memory and focus. This, combined with caffeine, work well in tandem to improve your mind/muscle connection.

Di-Caffeine Malate – 100mg

Di-Caffeine Malate yields about 74% caffeine. Therefore you are getting about 74mg of addition caffeine in addition to the 275mg of Caffeine Anhydrous. Di-Caffeine Malate is a combination of caffeine and malic acid. This version of caffeine is slower to hit the central nervous system and also aids in preventing the dreaded crash from caffeine. The 100mg dosage is a great addition to any formula to prolong energy levels.

AstraGin – 50mg

AstraGin is dosed at the clinical accepted dosage of 50mg to help with absorption of the active ingredients in Apollon Nutrition Desperado. 

The upcoming launch of Apollon Nutrition's Desperado will make it one of the better dosed and formulated products in the line-up of cost-effective pre-workout products.
