Firstbottle energizes your body and mind using carbohydrates, naturally sourced caffeine, as well as amino acids and electrolytes in clinically effective dosages to give you the proper fuel for anything you choose to pursue.
Carbohydrates: The Human Body's Primary Fuel Source
Carbohydrates are your body's primary fuel source and our Glucose:Fructose blend provides your body with a superior ability to crush your goals. Did you know? The ingestion of Glucose + Fructose in a 2:1 ratio prior to a one hour time trial performance led to performance improvements of 8% compared with Glucose only and a 19% improvement compared with water only.
Naturally Sourced Caffeine: Decrease Perceived Exertion
The various physiological effects of caffeine culminate in improved aerobic performance and the ability to take your training intensity to a higher level. Caffeine's long list of clinically proven benefits include (but not limited to): increased fat oxidation rates, perceived exertion decreases and improved cognition. We doubt you need much more convincing.
Citrulline: Improve Blood Flow
This amino acid boosts nitric-oxide levels, allowing more oxygen and nutrients to be delivered to your muscles, improving cardiovascular health and performance. It also helps remove the acidity from your blood and muscles, decreasing fatigue, meaning getting out of bed is going to be a little easier.
Tyrosine: Hone Focus
Stay in the zone from start to finish. This amino acid has been clinically proven to increase alertness, mental focus, mood, and energy during intense exercise.
Vitamin B-12: Reduce Fatigue
This essential vitamin helps your body produce the red blood cells that transport oxygen to all the things that help you move. Your body doesn't make B-12 or keep it around for very long, so drink up.
Electrolytes: Stay Hydrated
No one has the time for dehydration to ruin their day. Electrolytes support proper hydration and aerobic performance maintenance by reducing total body fluid loss and lowering your submaximal exercise heart rate.
