I want an amazing workout every time…

 
Now you can. 

Having consistently high energy levels would be great but in today’s increasingly busy world, that isn't always possible. Sometimes it can feel like there aren't enough hours in the day. The result of all that rushing around can mean a workout that doesn’t feel like you’ve done yourself justice. 

If this sounds all too familiar, then check out The Energy Booster. Wave goodbye to running on empty, and hello to a new lease of life. Formulated by leading nutritionists, The Energy Booster is a pre-workout game-changer that helps you get the most out of each and every single workout whether it’s in terms of speed, strength, power or endurance.

Can I take it on an empty stomach?

Absolutely - in fact it’s a great way to get the most out of fasted cardio workouts when your energy levels might be lower than usual but you still want to get a great workout regardless. The added BCAAs will ensure you're not breaking down muscle and focuses your body on burning fat for energy.

Will I get a tingling sensation after taking it?

Some people don't get it while others may. If you do feel slight tingles, don’t worry this is completely normal, and just an effect of the beta alanine. It lets you know the product is working. If you do get it, it will pass within half an hour or so.

Can I use it on days when I’m not working out?

The Energy Booster has been formulated as a pre-workout product to provide shorter term energy boost during workouts, so for best results we’d recommend using it before your workouts.

Why should I believe this product will work?

All our products have been formulated by expert nutritionists using science-backed research supported by peer-reviewed clinical trials. You can read some of these clinical studies by clicking here. Our products work because we focus on the following things above all else - the ingredients we use, the quality of these ingredients, their concentrations and how well they're absorbed by your body. Our unwavering commitment to that approach means what you get are the highest quality, cleanest supplements in the world today - without any BS.

Awarded best pre-workout in the Men’s Health Sports Nutrition Awards. Each serving contains 5g of energy-boosting amino acids, along with natural stimulants such as maca root and guarana.

Science over hype

 

With so many “miracle” ingredients being touted out there, it can be hard to know what really works. We believe evidence-based ingredients are the best way to better health. With decades of clinical studies behind these active ingredients showing how they can help boost energy, increase endurance and stamina, and safeguard lean muscle during exercise, we're confident that you’ll thank us later.

Per Serving:

BCAAs

BCAA Complex (5g): Of the twenty amino acids, nine are considered essential amino acids, meaning they must be obtained through your diet. Three of these nine are called branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs): leucine, isoleucine and valine. These are the most important amino acids for muscle growth and maintenance. You can find them here in an optimal 2:1:1 ratio. References > 1, 2.

 

Citrulline Malate

Citrulline Malate (2g): This is L-Citrulline (an amino acid) combined with malic acid (an organic salt). Citrulline malate can improve aerobic and anaerobic performance during prolonged exercise by reducing fatigue and increasing nitric oxide in the body. This relaxes blood vessels and increases blood flow and oxygen to working muscles. References > 3, 4.

 

Maca

Maca (1.25g): Reduces effects of physical and mental stress, and increases energy and libido. Grown for more than 2,000 years in the highest mountains of Peru, maca has recently found widespread popularity as an adaptogen. These are a group of natural ingredients that support the body's ability to deal with stress. References > 5, 6.

 

Beta Alanine

Beta Alanine (1.2g): When you exercise, metabolites accumulate in the muscles causing pH levels to drop resulting in fatigue. Carnosine can help reduce this acidity but the amount of carnosine made in the body depends on the amount of beta alanine available, and it's only when there's excess beta alanine that carnosine levels can increase to offset fatigue and aid performance. References > 7, 8.

 

Guarana

Guarana (100mg): An Amazonian fruit regarded as the elixir of long life. In addition to the stimulating action of its caffeine content, other benefits have been attributed to it’s alkaloid content. These include improved alertness, reaction time, memory, mood and performance during physical exercise. References > 9, 10.

 

Caffeine

Caffeine (71mg): The value of caffeine on mental and physical performance has been well-established. Research evidences positive effects on improving alertness, mood, cognitive function, fat oxidation, and exercise performance. References > 11, 12.

 

Vitamin B Complex

Vitamin B Complex (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, B12 all at 100%*): For reduction of tiredness and fatigue. They also play a role in maintaining hair and skin health, and regulating the nervous system. There are eight essential B vitamins: thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6, biotin, folic acid and vitamin B12. We bring all eight together at each one's daily recommended intake. References > 13, 14.

*%NRV (Nutrient Reference Values) are guidelines on daily amounts of vitamins and minerals to be consumed to maintain a healthy diet.

Why it's special

Amino Acids

Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), citrulline malate and beta alanine are amino acids that are vital for muscle maintenance and energy regulation. BCAAs are known for their role in muscle growth and repair. Citrulline malate allows the body to increase blood flow, maximising endurance. Beta alanine is shown to increase TTE (time to exhaustion), and reduce fatigue.

Vitamins

The B vitamins have an effect on many of the body’s functions, but are best known to help boost your mood and reduce fatigue. While they have a direct impact on energy levels and cell metabolism, they also support good digestion, healthy brain function, cardiovascular health and muscle tone.

Nootropics

Maca, guarana and caffeine contain properties that reduce physical stress, which increases endurance and decreases fatigue. They are a part of a select group of ingredients that also support focus and performance. Nootropics have many other helpful effects to improve your fitness, such as boosting motivation and energy.

What sort of testing do you do?

We go over and above to ensure you get the best quality and safest products possible. We only use ingredients that have a visible supply chain, and our manufacturing facilities are approved to the highest regulatory standards. Once we receive ingredients, we batch test every single one before it gets approval to go into the manufacturing process.

1 Week

I really noticed the boost I had during my sessions. I don't drink much caffeine and I'd been recommended to have some before workouts, so this was killing two birds with one stone. I'm not a big coffee drinker, so the caffeine alongside the other ingredients really helped elevate my sessions.

1 Month

Every month I do a few fasted cardio sessions to help with fat burning, alongside my traditional fitness training. My PT said I'd need to make sure I was having BCAAs to minimise eating into my muscle. I really noticed the difference during these sessions with better energy levels and could train for longer.

3 Months

Taking The Energy Booster before/during a session is now routine for me. I really like the taste and I do feel it gives me an edge. When I don't have it, I notice I can feel a bit flat. I think it's a great complement to training, especially if you workout regularly and want to maximise your progress.

Energy Booster

Great product which definitely extends my energy levels to the end of my workout. Unfortunately it looses 1 star due the taste which, to me, is not very pleasant, but tolerable given the performance.

Love the Energy Booster

I love the Energy Booster from Innermost. It provides just the right amount of tingle to keep me coming back for more.

Pre workout

Found this product from an online newspaper review and it was rated the best pre workout drink. Thought I would give it a go. I use it before a weights session. I took it 30-40 mins before the workout. I didn't feel an energy boost as in " I feel perked up". It gave me extra stamina throughout the session, I seemed to have that bit extra through the session. Well worth a try, seems to be a good product.

Taste is not the best

I got this because it is cleaner than most pre workouts while still having the active ingredients I was looking for.
I've not felt a big energy boost after taking it, but it did get me through a leg day after a night out. I feel like it also helped with recovery.

The problem is the taste, I don't like it at all. I might try to mix it with a fruit smoothie because at the minute it is not enjoyable.
Happy that it's quick to chug.
