INFRARED is a “non stim” pre-workout that uses quality ingredients in effective concentrations and supports genuine cellular energy production that you can feel, without the need for caffeine and / or stimulants. This is a “formulated supplementary sports food” designed to enhance the quality of athletic performance and provide sportsmen and sportswomen with an unfair but totally legal advantage over the competition.
What is in Infrared?
ATP Carb blend
This New ATP Science gel technology creates a gel bullous mixture of high and low molecular weight, simple and complex carbs with differing digestion and absorption pathways.
Using Gel technology in the carbohydrate blend makes it easy on the gut as it is formulated for efficient digestion and absorption and subsequent utilisation to fuel energy requirements.
23 gram per serve of a mix of a high molecular weight rice amylopectin, honey – fructose (NOT high fructose corn syrup), glucose and maltodextrin (not naturally part of honey but is added to keep the honey as a powder until you dissolve it), Beetroot juice (sucrose, fructose and glucose plus nitrates and betaine) and Dextrose (simple grape sugar form of glucose).
Betaine / Trimethylglycine (TMG)
Quality electrolytes magnesium L-aspartate, potassium L-aspartate, calcium citrate and sodium citrate.

Pre-workout – Mix one scoop of INFRARED into 350 ml of water 15 minutes before training. You can safely double the dose and mix 2 scoops into 600ml if you are chasing a more intense vasodilation and power increase.

For loading up on INFRARED to get the most out of the electrolytes, beta alanine, Schisandra and beetroot you should mix 3 heaped scoops (approx 36 grams) into 250 – 500ml of water and drink once daily. INFRARED is best taken away from other supplements containing taurine. Taurine will compete with beta alanine for absorption and utilization.
