Get What You Pay For.
Don’t compromise and spend hard-earned dollars on underdosed supplements. Kraken gives you proven doses of proven ingredients to help you achieve your best. But there’s no need to take our word for it –– we let the science speak for itself:
L-Citrulline helps provide the body produce more nitric oxide. Nitric oxide gas works as a vasodilator for your veins, improving blood flow. More blood means more nutrient delivery, but more importantly, greater pumps! This helps Kraken fulfill its promise of “intense pumps,” but we’re not even close to finished with the pump section. Citrulline also enhances your ability to recover from workouts and even during sessions themselves.
Beta-Alanine improves endurance. It really shines in the 1-4 minute “performances”, helping your body produce more carnosine, which then assists in flushing acid from the muscle fibers. The enhanced endurance means you can achieve more total volume, and training big is often a volume game. With more volume comes lean body mass gains. With the clinical dose of 3.2 grams, Kraken has your bases covered. If you feel a tingling sensation from the product, this is why.
HydroMax® is a cell-volumizing, hydration-boosting, ingredient consisting primarily of glycerol. Compared to other forms of glycerol, HydroMax® contains far more — it’s 65% glycerol by weight as opposed to 25% in the competition! Keep well-hydrated, since glycerol saturates your muscles with water by encouraging them to soak up that additional water. This has the two-fold effect of increasing hydration (leading to better endurance) as well as driving your pumps further. It can also reduce fatigue.
Taurine will increase the body’s ability to endure long sessions of cardiovascular exercise or high-intensity interval training. Because it is not a dose dependant ingredient, lower doses of taurine provide as many benefits as higher doses. Similar to glycerol above, if functions as an osmolyte and helps water transfer amongst cells. 1g is a perfect dose according to meta-analysis research across several studies.
N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine is a soluble form of tyrosine, used to create several powerful catecholamine neurotransmitters including epinephrine (adrenaline), norepinephrine (noradrenaline), and dopamine. It is often used to provide a sense of positive well-being and adds a focus component to Kraken. You might as well feel great while looking great!
VASO-6™ is a patented nitric oxide booster and grows in popularity by the day due to its massive success. It is a blend of six compounds from green tea that help enhance nitric oxide synthesis, delivering skin-splitting pumps from the improved blood flow. In addition, there are benefits regarding glucose uptake and it may lead to increased muscle protein synthesis!
TeaCrine® is a “neuroactivator” similar caffeine, except it lasts longer and doesn’t build up a tolerance. This means it works as well in your last scoop of Kraken as it did in the first. TeaCrine® typically enhances other stimulants its paired with, giving Kraken a synergistic effect alongside the caffeine, giving you a little extra push, especially at this large dose.
Last but not least comes caffeine. Caffeine and pre-workout supplements are inseparable, barring the stim-free products on the market (that’s where Kraken Pump comes in). Kraken delivers a moderate amount of 250mg to make sure you aren’t getting more stimulants than you actually need. With a well-formulated product, you don’t need loads of caffeine –– it’s simply one of the most proven ingredients in any supplement.
The research can go further and wider, but these highlights show that we created Kraken to deliver a proven and tested benefit to your pre-workout regiment – no guessing or surprises required.
