When it comes to exercise, most of us forget one of the most important part of fitness: recovery.

Some of us go too hard in the gym and neglect it. I neglected it myself often, which held me back from improving myself for years.

So we decided to formulate a Post-Workout supplement destined to help you fuel your recovery.

Introducing Synergy, our Mind & Body Restoration Formula.

About Synergy

Seize the opportunity with Synergy, our Nootropic Post-Workout Formula!

Synergy was scientifically formulated to accomplish the following goals:

  1. Improve recovery from your workouts.
  2. Reduce muscle soreness from your workouts.
  3. Increase the potential to build lean body mass.
  4. Aid in improving muscle protein synthesis. 
  5. Improve workout performance.

Ultimately, Synergy is an evidence-based post-workout formula crafted to help you recover faster, helping you make more GAINS in the long-run!

The Components of Synergy

Synergy is made up of four components that synergistically work in two phases to provide compounded benefits.

In the Body Restoration Phase, Creatine and L-Carnitine L-Tartrate synergistically work together to help aid in workout performance and recovery.

In the Mind Restoration Phase, Alpha-GPC and Ashwagandha come together to improve energy levels and reduce fatigue.

Now let's explore each ingredient individually.

Creatine Monohydrate

Creatine is a molecule that our body produces from amino acids. It has been shown to improve muscle strength, power output, and recovery.

How Creatine works is that it rapidly produces energy for intense exercise. This means that it primarily improves exercise performance in the gym.

It is the most studied supplement in the industry, with 5g being the industry standard. We use Creatine Monohydrate as it is one of the best forms.

L-Carnitine L-Tartrate

L-Carnitine is a compound that your body produces from the amino acids lysine and methionine. L-Carnitine L-Tartrate (LCLT) is a modified version of L-Carnitine that has been shown to help improve recovery. Adding to that, LCLT may also reduce muscle soreness.

Alpha-GPC

Alpha-GPC is a choline containing molecule that is used to promote brain levels of acetylcholine. Acetylcholine helps with memory and learning functions.

Alpha-GPC has also shown some promise in improving power output through peak force production.

Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha is an adaptogenic herb that is known as the "King of Ayurvedic Herbs". It has been shown to help with a variety of factors, from improvements in exercise performance, to stress relief and reductions in anxiety.

In one study, ashwagandha significantly improved the performance of their bench press by 44lbs, compared to a placebo group. Another study showed ashwagandha has the capability to improve velocity, power, and VO2 max in adults. 

As you can see, ashwagandha is a powerful adaptogen that enhances mind & body performance through prolonged usage. We use 300mg of ashwagandha for the best results.

For more on Ashwagandha, we wrote a guide about it here.

Synergistic Stacks

Impulse & Synergy

Stacking Impulse with Synergy works really well with both of their nootropic effects. As the CDP-Choline (in Impulse) and Alpha-GPC (in Synergy) both work to promote brain levels of acetylcholine, expect to see an increase in focus, concentration, memory and learning processes.

Catalyst & Synergy

Stacking Catalyst with Synergy allows you to craft a complete synergistic Workout Performance Stack.

Catalyst will help facilitate improvements in workout performance through the Nitric Oxide Boosters L-Citrulline & Beta-Alanine.

Drift & Synergy

Stacking Drift with Synergy gives you a complete Recovery Stack: perfect for evening workouts.

Synergy will help you improve performance and workout recovery.

Drift will help with sleep quality and quantity, allowing you to optimize recovery in its entirety.

Frequently-Asked Questions (FAQs)

How Should I Use Synergy?

Take one scoop after your workout or whatever time is most convenient for you.

You can use 1/2 a scoop to assess for tolerance.

For best results, take it consistently.

Can I Take It During My Workout (Intraworkout)?

You can take Synergy during your workouts, but be aware that it could cause stomach upset.

Can I Take It On My Rest Days?

Absolutely! In fact, components like Creatine and Ashwagandha should be taken consistently for best results.

ARE THERE ANY BENEFITS TO TAKING IT POST-WORKOUT COMPARED TO OTHER TIMES?

For best results, we recommend taking it after your workouts because of a study that showed promise in taking creatine supplements post-workout.

From personal experience, I prefer taking it after my evening workouts, as I tend to crave flavor in the evenings. This is followed by a post-workout meal, and our sleep supplement, Drift.

If you prefer to take it at other times of day, that is ok as well. Just make sure to take it consistently.

Seize Your Opportunity

To conclude, Synergy is our complete Mind & Body Restoration Formula.

Each component was synergistically formulated to accomplish the following:

  1. Improve recovery from your workouts.
  2. Reduce muscle soreness from your workouts.
  3. Increase the potential to build lean body mass.
  4. Aid in improving muscle protein synthesis. 
  5. Improve workout performance.
