Chemix Lifestyle Chemix Pre-Workout is Here!

After many years and collaborations over the years the Guerilla Chemist has finally created and formulated his own brand! Introducing Chemix Lifestyle and their flagship product, Chemix Pre-Workout! Chemix Pre-Workout is the newest Ultra-Premium, High Stimulant Pre-Workout designed to increase Energy, Mental Focus and Cell Hydration for Insane Pumps!

For anyone who hasn’t heard of the Guerilla Chemist, he is known for creating many hardcore and unique Supplements over many years and really has created something very interesting in the form of Chemix Pre-Workout (On Paper at least)! 

So what’s in Chemix Pre-Workout? 

PeakO2 (2g) for INCREASED PERFORMANCE OUTPUT!

PeakO2 is a unique ingredient starting to appear in many formulas whether it be Pre-Workouts, Intra-Workouts or Post-Workout supplements. Formulated by the well-known and trusted Compound Solutions, PeakO2 is a combination of 6 Adaptogenic Mushrooms designed to help athletes “adapt” and overcome physical & mental stress to power through your training (1). PeakO2 is designed to increase Oxygen uptake which in turn can help with improving endurance, performance output and even recovery!

Glycerpump (3g) for CELLULAR HYDRATION & PUMPS!

Glycerpump is a patented form of the ingredient Glycerol standardized to 65%. Glycerol is designed to increase Exercise performance (3) and cellular hydration. Dehydration has been shown to decrease strength by up to 20% (4) so using glycerol as a part of Pre-Workout supplementation is designed to decrease this action along with the positive side effect of increasing nutrient and hydration to the muscle cells resulting in a great pump!

Kanna (Sceletium Tortuosum) (1g) for INCREASED EUPHORIA & MOOD!

Kanna a herb better known as Sceletium Tortuosum, is a psychoactive herb that has been shown to have some effects in improving mental cognition(2), alleviating anxiety & stressors and has been touted by some as a natural SSRi (selective-serotonin reuptake inhibitor) which can increase serotonin and block its uptake. While there isn’t a huge amount of large-scale studies proving a lot of benefits of Kanna, ultimately it is a Nootropic whose role in this formula is to increasing Euphoria and Mood.

Choline Bitartrate (1.5g) for INCREASED MENTAL FOCUS!

Choline has been shown in the body to have some positive effects for preventing Neural Tube Defects along with some studies showing links in improving mental cognition and mental focus (5). Although many of the studies have shown that more consistent and prolonged use provides more benefits rather than short term single use, anecdotal evidence has shown many of the mental benefits to be true.

Organic Lions Mane Mushroom (600mg) for MORE MENTAL FOCUS!

Lions Mane Mushroom has started to appear in many Pre-Workout & Nootropic formulas for its profound increase in mental cognition, mental formation and decrease in mental fatigue. There hasn’t been a huge range of studies done specifically on Lions Mane Mushroom but the benefits in combination of other ingredients and mushrooms have shown many positive mental effects.

Exothermic Energy Amalgam (2647mg) for CRAZY ENERGY!

This is the only part of this breakdown that is a bit difficult. Taken from the Chemix Website “It took me a very long time to develop this exact blend of cognitive and performance-enhancing ingredients, and every ingredient is in there at an EXACT dose for maximum synergy and effect. There are strong PEA derivatives, caffeine blends, MAO inhibitors, and other releasing agents to maximize focus, stimulation and mood enhancement. For this reason ONLY, I chose to protect my formula and make it a proprietary blend. After almost a year of research and development, I did not want anyone to copy my exact formula.”

While it’s somewhat frustrating having proprietary blends, we can understand why they’re trying to protect their new and unique formula. We do however know that there is over 300mg of Caffeine anhydrous alone so even without knowing the dosages of other stimulants, Chemix Pre-Workout will give you a whopping Energy Kick!

So, what can you expect from Chemix Pre-Workout?

Without having used Chemix Pre-Workout as of yet I can’t offer a first-hand experience on the effects of Chemix Pre-Workout. Judging purely from the ingredient panel and what we’ve been told about some of the dosages, Chemix Pre-Workout should be one strong Pre-Workout!

First off, there is a ridiculous amount of Nootropic and Focus ingredients in this so you should be dialled in like crazy and feeling good regardless of what your training may be. Second, knowing what we’ve seen from other formulations and collaborations from the Guerilla Chemist, this is going to be a Pre-Workout for all you lovers of High Stimulant Pre-Workouts! Even though it is protected (hidden) in a proprietary blend, the stimulant blend is huge so in turn, you should be expecting a huge energy kick! The only thing that I would say is absent is the combination of other pump ingredients. You should still experience a great pump from the dosage of Glycerol but will that live up to the same effects of formulas containing Citrulline & Agmatine, we’ll wait to find out.

Overall, we were very excited when we were offered the Chemix Pre-Workout and can’t wait to have it in store (arriving this week, June 2019). While there are negatives much like in many products, it was refreshing to see a unique formula for once in a category that is over saturated with the same formulas.
