Citrulline, Agmatine and Beetroot
Increasing nitric oxide has a special dilating effect on the blood vessels, allowing increased blood flow for better endurance, as well as enhancing the “pump”.
Beta alanine is a compound with anti-fatigue effects.
It’s been shown to reduce the build-up of acid and free radicals during exercise, resulting in improved performance (4).
An effective dose is about 2-5g.
Caffeine is well-known for its ability to improve energy levels and alertness.
It’s also known to improve athletic performance when taken at slightly higher doses (5).
Choline is a compound which is associated with improved cognition (6).
Although some forms have shown great promise for acute effects, the bitartrate form isn’t as effective.
Dynamine™ and Teacrine™
Dynamine™ and Teacrine™ are special trademarked forms of compounds which are very similar to caffeine.
They both have stimulant effects, and may also improve mood.
N-methyltyramine HCl is yet another a stimulant, which may improve energy, mood, and more (8).
It works by helping you maintain high levels of a learning neurotransmitter called acetylcholine.
Who Takes It?
Athletes wanting to improve all aspects of their workouts may benefit from using Ignition Switch.
How to Take
Mix 1-2 scoops (5-10g) with 250-350mL water, and consume 30 minutes before working out.
The stimulants in this formula may trigger rapid or irregular heartbeat in some users, especially at the 2-scoop dose.
Beta alanine may cause a harmless tingling sensation in the face and skin.
- Massive nitric oxide boost
- Great for stimulant-lovers
- May boost mood and focus.
- Some ingredient doses are low even if taken in a 2-scoop serving
- Only two flavours to choose from
- Doesn’t contain many ingredients for strength and power.
Ignition Switch is a new pre-workout formula which would appeal best to those who are after pumps and energy levels.
It goes in heavy on stimulants and nitric oxide boosters but may lack slightly on performance ingredients, especially in the power output area.
The stimulant content may be a bit much for some people at the 2-scoop serving, so if you’re sensitive to stimulants you may want to start with a single-scoop serving.
If the heap of nitric oxide ingredients in this formula still aren’t enough for your tastes, Axe & Sledge Supplements also make a pump-focused formula which can be combined with this one.
