What makes it Awesome?
Increase strength, power and physical performance
A potent combination of Creatine and Beta Alanine
Simply consume daily as a convenient lemon drink
Do you want to perform better in the gym, with your fitness training or in your sport? If that’s you then Performance Blend is your new workout partner to maximise your physical output. Performance Blend is a simple mix of creatine monohydrate and beta-alanine made into a daily lemon drink you can make in the morning and sip throughout your day. This is not a pre-workout supplement, but a daily supplement aimed at improving exercise sessions such as sport, crossfit, HIIT training, fitness classes, spinning, and intensive weight training.
Exercise Harder, Exercise Longer
In the world of performance supplementation there are rarely compounds that have a meaningful improvement in performance and as a result are able to make bold claims. But creatine and beta-alanine can and do. Creatine is the most widely researched performance supplement in the world, with numerous studies about its performance-enhancing effects in sports and weightlifting. It does this by aiding in the resynthesis of ATP, the primary energy currency of your muscles when you exercise. This means you can exercise a little harder, for a little longer, squeezing out a few more reps, or hitting that WOD or finisher with maximum intensity. Beta-Alanine works by raising carnosine levels in the blood, this, in turn, allows you to work harder, for longer, by buffering lactate acid in the body. It helps force out a few more reps or push to hit that last sprint.
The Science Behind the Awesome
What’s essential with both creatine and beta-alanine is that they are in your diet daily. They don’t need to be taken at a particular time of the day - people commonly think you have to have them pre-workout, you don’t. This is why we made Performance Blend into a simple daily lemon drink. Taking these two compounds pre-workout as a one-off won’t be of benefit, you need to take both compounds daily so they are able to saturate your muscle tissues over time and raise both ATP and carnosine levels.
A simple formula, taken daily, to make you a little more awesome in the gym, on the field, or in your chosen discipline, helping you push that little harder, for a little longer. WARNING: Beta Alanine can cause paraesthesia, aka tingling of the skin. This is a perfectly normal and expected side effect, especially when taken in concentrated doses. This is another reason Awesome Performance Blend is a drink designed to be sipped throughout the day. It reduces this from ever happening by consuming it in mini doses as you sip throughout the day. You’re welcome.

Is it ok to take Awesome Performance Blend alongside Awesome Pre-Workout, or should I take one over another?
If you could only take one product due to cost, take Awesome Performance Blend. If you can afford both, and there is a benefit to taking both, then read on. Performance Blend acts as a baseline amount of creatine and beta alanine, two compounds that need to be taken daily but are also in pre-workout. The other ingredients in Awesome Pre-Workout don’t need to be taken daily and have an acute (short-term) effect. So ideally take Awesome Performance Blend daily, and Awesome Pre-workout on days that you exercise 15-30 minutes pre exercise, in place of a performance blend serving.
I was always told Creatine stored water and I didn't want the bloated look, is this true?
Creatine does increase your weight slightly via stored water, but this is perfectly normal and a good thing for improved performance. Rather than subcutaneous (under your skin) water retention we would usually associate with eating a salty meal and bloating, it's water stored in your muscles which can make them look more full.
If you do experience bloating while taking this product, do consider other parts of your diet and lifestyle. Are you eating too much salt, are you eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, maybe a food to which you're allergic or intolerant? Daily stress and even the menstrual cycle can affect bloating, too, so always keep these things in mind and look holistically when trying to work out what is causing you to store more water than usual.

Is creatine harmful to the kidneys?
While it will increase load on the kidneys, this additional load is well within their capability unless you have renal issues already. There is no evidence that creatine use in healthy people causes kidney issues.
Once the loading phase is complete, how long can I use the product for? Do I have to cycle?
Creatine can be used indefinitely. Research in individuals found no negative effects after 4 years and there’s no reason to assume an issue would appear after that time.
Can this be used by under 18’s?
While there is no reason to assume not, the research has not been done and so this is something that should be decided individually with the consent of the parent/guardian.
Will this benefit my particular sport?
Thanks to the inclusion of creatine (which will help just about everyone with the possible exception of endurance runners) and beta alanine (which will help just about everyone with the possible exception of weight lifters and powerlifters who don’t do cardio), we can safely say that this product will help anyone who performs at a high intensity, that’s what it’s for!
Why does it make me tingle?
Beta Alanine activates something known as a Mas-related G-protein coupled receptor member D in your skin. This is a histamine-independent response that results in the feeling of itching that’s harmless, but we appreciate it’s sometimes unpleasant! To minimise this take the product as advised.
Is Awesome Performance Blend vegan friendly?
Yes, it’s also gluten and dairy free.
