Natural Caffeine VS Synthetic Caffeine
Is your pre-workout or caffeine supplement making you crash harder?
Do you know what kind of caffeine is used in your supplements? Let me tell you, it’s probably a synthetic generic version of it. Here at Wurx, we strictly use Purcaf Organic Caffeine. This caffeine offers a natural sourced energy boost from green unroasted coffee. Delivering a clean source of sustainable energy.
Getting up for an intense training session in the gym or a busy day at work can be exhausting, which is why most adults take advantage of the benefits of caffeine on a regular basis. Sometimes in the form of coffee, guarana, tea, and even chocolate to help with the daily grind, or staying awake during the mid-afternoon crash. After all, no one wants to be that person that falls asleep in a meeting with the boss.
Is the caffeine supplement you’re taking the best choice for your goals and overall health? Most caffeine extracts are produced through a synthetic process, rather than naturally extracted.
When you are looking for a caffeine or pre-workout supplement, make sure you are getting a natural organic caffeine form. Here are some reasons why natural caffeine is the better choice:
Quality over Quantity
Wurx Pre-Workout contains a smaller amount of natural caffeine compared to leading brands. How does this help you? We are built to slowly adapt, same goes for how much caffeine you are taking. You may have started on traditional caffeine pills at 200 mg per day, but now you’ve had to increase it slowly and are close to the point where you need 500 mg to feel anything. These other brands need to use so much more caffeine because it comes from a synthetic source. The stimulant “high”, or energy burst, last for a shorter amount of time, and you crash so much harder because of the high amounts of caffeine. Cheaper is usually never better.
It’s only so long before this takes a toll on your physiology. Caffeine acts on the central nervous system to reduce fatigue and increase alertness. Caffeine is a stimulant, and too much of any stimulant, especially when you are fatigued, can burn out your central nervous system. As counter intuitive as it may sound, when you are tired, you should probably be consuming less stimulants throughout the day, this way your body adapts naturally to the stress of being fatigued. You can reduce the stress on your body by keeping your daily dose of caffeine low.
As this is an all-natural and purely organic substance, there is a lower risk that you’ll suffer the unwanted caffeine crash that leaves so many people miserable after their temporary ‘high.’ You can get all the energy and performance enhancing results you want without any negative side effects. Some of these performance enhancing benefits can include:
- Muscular Endurance
- Boost Strength 
- Increase Mental Focus
Some other negative side effects can include sleeplessness, nervousness, and nausea. You can expect none of these side effects to be present while taking organic natural caffeine.
Highly Water Soluble
This means it will rapidly break down into your system, distributing the energy quicker. Delivered to your body in an efficient manner, energy is much more sustainable. You will see no lag time between using your pre-workout supplement and feeling its effects. This makes dosage timing more efficient, you will be ready to hit your sets by the time you are in the middle of your warm up and stretch!
Natural caffeine is 100% chemical free, which means you don’t get any of the unwanted additives and possible byproduct. You might be putting toxins into your body by using generic caffeine. Synthetic caffeine can be made through a chemical synthesis where raw materials can be exposed to a number of harsh chemicals. So why do other companies use synthetic caffeine in their pre workouts? Money! Natural organic caffeine can be up nine times more expensive than synthetic caffeine.
Caffeine is incredibly and virtually available to purchase everywhere, and something you can get right from your coffee maker. Most people aren't willing to down a cup or two of coffee just before starting their workout, this is where supplements become a more practical and convenient option. Don’t overlook the importance of where your caffeine is coming from. For the most optimal results, you’ll want to ensure it’s PurCaf Organic Caffeine that you’re taking, not some lab made generic substance.
