Soul Performance Nutrition
It’s rare to find a new brand that does the things we care about correctly right from the start. With many start up brands doing some sketchy things to make a quick buck, it’s refreshing to see a brand really put their money where their mouth is and launch with a product that gets you excited for their future.
Today, we are looking at Soul Performance Nutrition, a relatively new brand that currently only has one product, yet they did such a good job with it that we look forward to what they have in the future. Not only do they have promise, they also have their heads in the right place.
Let’s take a look at Soul Performance Nutrition and see why they are a brand you should take a serious look at.
Why Soul Performance Nutrition?
Soul Performance Nutrition is a brand that takes a non-standard approach to solving problems. You can see this in their Electrolyte Endurance Formula, which we will get into later.
For starters, they truly are a brand that you can trust. While any brand can simply say they do their due diligence with the manufacturing process, Soul Performance Nutrition takes it a step further by being BSCG Certified Drug Free. This is quite an impressive certification for a small brand that is fairly new to have. For this reason, you know that they are being audited for their product label, product ingredients, the manufacturing process, as well as all of the CoA’s for each supplier.
Another aspect that some may like is that Soul Performance Nutrition does NOT include anything you don’t need, and does not use any artificial flavoring. You will not find any acesulfame-K, aspartame, cyclamates, high fructose corn syrup, saccharin, sorbitol, or even sucralose. You will also not find any additional coloring. Any color in their products is a result of their ingredients.
Soul Performance Nutrition has a goal to offer products that benefit all of those looking to improve health, wellness, and performance. As you can see, they have one product in one flavor, which means they are putting all of their care into making sure what they currently have is top-tier… instead of simply throwing a blend together and launching a bunch of new flavors to keep hype up.
So a brand can say anything about their goal, how they want to provide a healthy and truly beneficial product, but can they put their money where their mouths are? Well, let’s look into their current intra-workout product. We have to say, they certainly took a different approach to an intra-workout than what you typically see, and it certainly stands out from the rest.
Electrolyte Endurance Powder
One thing we have to give Soul Performance a lot of credit for, they did not simply start their brand with a basic pre-workout, fat burner, or protein powder. Soul Performance started off with Electrolyte Endurance Powder, which is an intra-workout. Already off to a good start, but why is it really any different from the rest? Well the quick answer to that is yes. Electrolyte Endurance Powder is an intra-workout supplement that is not simply a EAA/BCAA product with some good flavoring. This is an intra that really focuses on not just short term performance, but recovery and long-term performance as well.
The profile starts off with an extensive array of vitamins and minerals. As far as quality goes, you can rest assured that Electrolyte Endurance Powder is using high quality ingredients. You are getting TRAACS forms of minerals, which have high bioavailability. The little things matter for sure.
So that does it for minerals, but what about the real sexy stuff? Well, the first ingredient in Electrolyte Endurance Powder is PeakO2, which is a blend of mushrooms from Compound Solutions. This ingredient is quite popular and has good scientific backing. It is typically used in endurance formulas, or eleven as a standalone as it has been shown to increase your VO2 Max. This can greatly help with endurance, and has a wealth of other benefits as well. Of course we have to mention, this is a saturation ingredient, so you should be taking it every day. You’re getting your daily dose in here at 1g, so that’s nice to see.
Following this you get Coconut Water Powder, which is actually quite common in intra-workouts and hydration formulas. It is a source of antioxidants and electrolytes, and at 500mg is nice to see here.
Now we come to ElevATP, which is a great addition to this product. ElevATP is a natural complex ingredient from FutureCeuticals, and you typically see it in pre-workout powders. It can help your body increase ATP levels, and has some solid research behind it. If you don’t know what ATP is, it stands for “adenosine triphosphate”, and it is the energy currency of the cell. This may be the first time we’ve seen ElevATP in an intra-workout, and we like the idea. At 150mg, you’re getting a solid dose.
Next up is an ingredient from NuLiv Science that has been making a lot of noise. Senactiv is a patented ingredient that has been shown to increase time to exhaustion in high intensity interval training. It increases ATP production, which can help with performance and recovery. A study done on Senactiv in healthy young males showed that men taking Senactiv increased their performance on high intensity interval training while cycling up to 20% when compared to a placebo. The same study saw an increase in citrate synthase by 42%, which is a cause of increased ATP production. You get 50mg of Senactiv in Electrolyte Endurance Powder, which is a solid dose.
Finally we have S7. which is another ingredient from FutureCeuticals. S7 is a blend of seven plant-based ingredients (green coffee bean extract, green tea extract, colorless turmeric extract, tart cherry, blueberry, broccoli, and kale) that has been clinically proven to ignite your body’s own nitric oxide system. To keep it simple, it is a source of antioxidants that brands typically use as an add-on to aid with pumps and prevent nitric oxide from being broken down. At 50mg, it is at the clinical dose.
Soul Performance Nutrition is certainly a brand that has a lot of promise. With so much care in their single and first product, you know this brand will only be dropping bangers in the future. With attention to quality, while offering a different approach to intra-workout products by using clinical doses of patented ingredients, be on the lookout for Soul Performance love from us here on Fitness Informant.
