Athletic Edge Nutrition Presents
Extreme SURGE of Creatine, Nitric Oxide & Insane RUSH of Energy!
Redefining Pre-Workout supplementation as we know it!
The pre-workout category is one of the oldest most cluttered categories in sports nutrition today. Sadly, if you look closely at the supplement facts panels of many of these products, you will see the same OLD SCHOOL formula that has been around since early 2000. And despite huge evolutions in sports nutrition research, these pre-workout formulas stay the same. We see NO reason to recycle old largely ineffective, outdated formulas, simply to try and make slight improvements, like other companies do.
Staying true to our tradition of bringing out ONLY premium, innovative, uncompromised formulas, we are pleased to introduce PreSurge Unleashed!
NEXT Generation Pre-Workout Formula!
Formulated from the ground up to incorporate all the latest advancements in sports nutrition science. PreSurge Unleashed will simply perform like no other pre-workout formula in the world.
PreSurge Unleashed Highlights:
Head to head comparison of “old school” pre-workout formulas versus PreSurge Unleashed
Let’s take an insightful look at the core of the current old breed of pre-workout formulas and how PreSurge Unleashed REDEFINES the category as we know it.
Old School pre-workout formula: Generic low grade creatine or inferior forms.
PreSurge Unleashed solution-Creapure® brand creatine monohydrate
Unlike other pre-workout formula’s, that use the cheapest creatine monohydrate they can get their hands on, or inferior forms like creatine ethyl ester(CEE) and others. We have licensed the German made Creapure; the world’s purest creatine monohydrate, with a proven safety profile. Creapure brand of creatine monohydrate is produced with a unique patented non-carcinogenic process in a FDA registered GMP plant in Germany with no possible risk of cross contamination or high levels of its breakdown byproduct creatinine that can occur with cheaper creatine’s. Creapure is recognized for consistent and homogenous quality (min 99.9% creatine monohydrate) which increases your value, while keeping it contaminate free. Look for the creapure® logo on the label of PreSurge to ensure you are getting the best creatine in the world. Creapure is the KING of all creatine's. Look in the frequently asked question section, for more information on some of the other research backed INFERIOR forms of creatine.
Old School pre-workout formula: Loaded with carbohydrates to help with creatine uptake. While large amounts of carbohydrates have been shown to increase creatine uptake into the muscle. Many people don’t want consume huge amounts of fat inducing, physique destroying simple sugars, simply to increase creatine absorption.
PreSurge Unleashed solution- Russian Tarragon extract, NO CARBS NEEDED!
PreSurge Unleashed is the world’s first supplement to use a research backed specialized extract of russian tarragon(Artemisia dracunculus L). Let’s take a closer look at what this incredible ingredient can do for you. This EXACT extract was recently shown in a study, combined with creapure creatine(the creatine we use in PreSurge) to drastically increase the uptake of creatine into skeletal muscle. The results were STAGGERING, showing this extract could bring about skeletal muscle absorption comparable to spiking insulin with large amounts of high glycemic carbohydrates and or protein. This specialized, Russian Tarragon extract will make your muscles like creatine sponges! Perfect for individuals looking to maximize muscle fullness and bring about ultra lean and hard looking muscles.
This is a HUGE breakthrough in the science of creatine supplementation and makes the consumption of huge amounts of simple sugars, obsolete.
Old School pre-workout formula: Loaded with Arginine - Most of the old school formulas, are largely formulated using the amino-acid arginine to increase nitric oxide( NO). The problem is, studies have repeatedly shown arginine is not the rate limiting factor for NO synthesis in humans, meaning by taking extra, it does not drive your body to make more NO as a result. Even when large oral doses of arginine were taken at 7-20grams a day were taken, the studies show no increase in NO levels. Simply stated: The research DOES NOT support that taking extra arginine orally will increase NO levels. Additionally, high doses of arginine, can have you running to the bathroom. Certainly not desirable during your workout.
PreSurge Unleashed solution- We take a three angled approach at boosting NO
At the core of our nitric oxide/vascularity blend is the patented form of L-carnitine, GlycoCarn™(gycine propionyl l-carnitine), which has CLINICLY been shown to increase NO. GlycoCarn is the FIRST ingredient shown in research to actually increase nitric oxide synthesis in HUMANS when taken orally.
PreSurge utilizes an extract of icariin from the herb epimedium. Icariin is the constituent of the epimedim that is largely believed to bring about the vascular effects. Icariin has been shown in research to stimulate both short term production of nitric oxide(NO), as well as having longer term effects on endothelia nitric oxide synthase(eNOS), the enzyme needed to synthesize NO. The end result of these effects, is smooth muscle and blood vessels are relaxed, allowing them to increase their diameter, opening up the flood gates for greater blood flow, greater amount of nutrient delivery, feeding, PRIMING and encouraging your muscles for muscular growth.
While exercise in itself is a great way to increase NO output, it also increases free radicals. Free radicals actually reduce NO levels, decreasing vasodialation, which of course is not what we want to happen during exercise. To counteract these free-radicals, we have included a specific array of antioxidants, which have actually been shown in research to protect NO from being broken down and deactivated by free-radicals. These anti-oxidants include, Grape seed extract(95% OPC), alpha-lipoic-acid(ALA) and folic-acid. Interesting, both ALA and folic-acid have been shown in research to additionally enhance eNOS(the enzyme that synthesizes NO)
Driving Intensity, Energy & Focus!
We all know how much our mental state affects our training. If your brain isn’t energized and focused and you don’t have the “muscle-mind connection”, muscular gains will plummet. How many times has your mind given up before your muscles have actually fatigued? If this is happening, you are NOT adequately stressing and overloading your muscles to a great enough degree to maximize muscular GROWTH.
Old School pre-workout formula- Rely on high amounts of stimulants, such as caffeine to drive the energy aspect of their formula. Most of the old school pre-workout formulas rely almost 100% on high amounts of caffeine and neglect the many other aspects of assisting the body to create, strong, clean energy, with zone like focus. Most of the products don’t even list the amount of caffeine in them. Since the energy, mind-muscle and focus aspects of PreSurge’s formula DO NOT rely on high amounts of caffeine to drive it, we are able to use a LOW amounts of caffeine and we LIST the amount (125mg) as well!
PreSurge Unleashed solution- We target the mental/neurological aspects of training with our cutting edge, multi angle approach to bring you, a potent and plateau blasting energy/intensity blend that is designed to put you in the ZONE and keep you there throughout your workout.
Old school pre-workout formula’s-The dreaded mental and physical crash
How often after just a few uses of your current pre-workout supplement, do you feel burned out, drained, apathetic and unable to function at an optimal level. The overall strength of the energy has largely decreased, forcing you to continuously increase your dosage to get any affect. And even then, the energy and focus, certainly isn’t as strong as it was the first few times? This usually occurs when formulas rely almost 100% on high amounts of caffeine and neglect the many other aspects of assisting the body to create, strong, clean energy, with zone like focus.
PreSurge Unleashed solution-
PreSurge Unleashed utilizes L-theanine(Suntheanine®), which has been shown in research to accelerate mental regeneration after exercise. The perfect supplement to combat at against neurological burnout that occurs to so many people when training hard and heavy. Additionally PreSurge utilizes ingredients such as tyrosine, TMG, DLPA that are precursors that help rebuild depleted neurotransmitters that lead to the mental crash so common with old school formulas. The neurological regenerative approach to PreSurge’s formula, coupled with a low caffeine(125mg) content, make PreSurge the ultimate pre-workout weapon that will have you feeling good far beyond your workout and not dragging the next day.

Q-Don’t I have to load up on creatine?
No, according to the research, you actually never had to and when a traditional loading phase (20g a day) was compared to much lower doses (3-6g a day), similar muscle creatine concentrations and performance increases were brought about, after 28 days of supplementation from both the 20g dose and the lower 3g dose. And there’s even less of a reason than ever to load, with PreSurge Unleashed utilizing Russian tarragon extract. More information below.
Q- Why didn’t AEN use some of the “supposedly superior forms of creatine, such as creatine ethyl ester (CEE)?
Because creatine monohydrate, has over 500 hundred peer reviewed, published studies to support it as an effective ergogenic aid. Take a guess how many published peer reviewed studies CEE has showing it effective? The answer, TWO and the first one showed its stability at various pH's to be greatly INFERIOR to creatine monohydrate and the other showed that it took four times as long as creatine monohydrate to significantly raise muscle creatine levels and it never was able to raise them as high due to a high conversion rate to creatinine. This study also, showed it converted to the waste product creatine, three times faster than mono. And lastly, it showed CEE caused a greater increase in extracellular water retention (BLOAT). Don't buy into pure marketing hype. Creapure is the KING of all creatine's.

Q- To maximize creatine’s absorption, don’t I need to consume it with simple sugars?
YES, you USED to, but not anymore, thanks to the inclusion of a specialized Russian Tarragon extract (Artemisia dracunculus L). This EXACT extract was recently shown in a study, combined with creapure creatine(the creatine we use in PreSurge) to increase the uptake of creatine into skeletal muscle. The results were STAGGERING, showing this extract could bring about skeletal muscle absorption comparable to spiking insulin with large amounts of high glycemic carbohydrates and or protein. This specialized, Russian Tarragon extract will make your muscles like creatine sponges! Perfect for individuals looking to maximize muscle fullness and bring about ultra lean and hard looking muscles.
This is a HUGE breakthrough in the science of creatine supplementation and makes the consumption of huge amount of fat inducing, physique destroying simple sugars, a thing of the past.
Q: Who can benefit from PreSurge Unleashed?
Q: Do I need to add anything extra pre-workout to PreSurge Unleashed to make it more effective?
NO, NOTHING else is necessary. After establishing your sensitivity to PreSurge Unleashed and if you find it necessary, you can increase to two servings. DO NOT EXCEED 3 servings. One to two servings will be enough for most individuals.
Q: Can I take PreSurge Unleashed late at night?
This is going to depend on your individual sensitivity to the ingredients in PreSurge. It is certainly possible that the strong stimulant aspect of PreSurge may adversely affect your sleep. We recommend if you work out late at night and are highly sensitive to stimulants such as caffeine, try taking a smaller dose. These questions can only fully be answered by your own trial and error as there is too much variability in stimulant sensitivity from individual to individual. As a general precaution, we suggest to not use PreSurge within 4-5 hours of bedtime.
Q: What other supplements do you recommend to maximize the results when taking PreSurge Unleashed?
While nothing extra is needed to be taken Pre-Workout, outside of PreSurge. There are other important formulas that were designed to be stacked with PreSurge that can greatly increase your overall gains in muscle mass and muscular performance and recovery.
Q: How should I combine these three products?
Our products are formulated based on the latest advancements in nutrient timing science and are designed to work together synergistically. To learn how to properly stack our products and maximize your muscle growth and performance, please read our Nutrient Timing Stack Recommendations below.
