It has the perfect balance of sweet and tart! If you want to escape and transport to a tropical destination, grab a tub of Tropical Punch BAANG!
The four main components of BAANG consist of:
The B-vitamins are included in BAANG to help convert food into energy. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, so they help rebuild damaged muscle tissue. BAANG uses a combination of natural caffeine, green coffee bean, and green tea leaf extract to naturally raise energy levels and focus while suppressing your appetite.
Lastly, our hydration blend consists of coconut water powder and three key electrolytes (sodium, potassium, and magnesium). Replenishing your body’s electrolytes is crucial for optimal performance, recovery, and hydration.
Here’s an overview of each ingredient and dose included in BAANG:
BAANG contains the following B vitamins:
We added three B vitamins in BAANG including vitamins B6, B12, and biotin (B7) because B vitamins play an important role in converting food into energy among carrying out several other physiological functions. Although each B vitamin has its own unique benefits they collectively contribute to metabolism, the creation of new blood cells, and the maintenance of cells.
In addition to B vitamins, BAANG also contains several key minerals that serve as electrolytes including:
Electrolytes are simply minerals that carry an electrical charge. Electrolytes are involved in nerve impulses, muscle contractions, hydration, and maintenance of acid-base balance within the body. Without an adequate amount of electrolytes, you are more likely to become dehydrated, leading to fatigue, cramping, poor performance, and other health conditions. Therefore, it’s important to consume enough electrolytes in addition to an adequate amount of fluid.
BAANG contains the following branched-chain amino acids in the clinically studied 2:1:1 ratio:
Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are essential amino acids which means they cannot be synthesized by the body. Therefore, it’s crucial to obtain enough BCAAs from food or supplementation. Branched-chain amino acids are needed for the activation of muscle protein synthesis (MPS) and the prevention of muscle protein breakdown (MPB).
Muscle protein synthesis is the process of building and repairing muscle tissue. So, consuming enough BCAAs, especially around training, is important for optimal performance and recovery. BCAAs are also naturally found in various protein sources such as K-POW Nutrition Vegan Protein. If you would like to have a non-caffeinated BCAA supplement, check out K-POW Natural BCAAs.
To further support recovery, hydration, and performance BAANG contains the following ingredients:
L-Glutamine is known for being one of the most abundant amino acids in the human body. Although it’s not considered as essential as branched-chain amino acids during times of extreme stress, injury, or illness it may be beneficial to consume additional glutamine. Glutamine plays a crucial role in the gastrointestinal, immune, and musculoskeletal systems. This amino acid helps promote recovery, gut health, and immune system function.
As the name suggests, L-citrulline malate is a combination of citrulline and malic acid. Citrulline is a non-essential amino acid that’s converted into another amino acid called arginine. Arginine is further converted to nitric oxide which is a neurotransmitter that causes the expansion of your blood vessels. This allows for more blood, nutrients, and oxygen to be delivered throughout the body, especially to your muscles.
Malic acid, on the other hand, acts as a catalyst in the Krebs cycle and increases energy production in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Malic acid also aids in recovery and boosts performance by reducing lactic acid buildup. So these two ingredients work together to enhance performance and recovery.
After citrulline malate, we have 500 milligrams of L-taurine, a conditionally essential amino acid. Taurine is naturally present in some foods and it's also produced in small amounts by your liver. However, during specific times, such as increased stress, injury, or illness, your body cannot produce enough to sustain adequate levels. Therefore, supplementing with taurine may be very beneficial for active individuals.
Taurine is mostly present in the brain, heart, skeletal muscle, and retina. Taurine is involved in numerous physiological functions, such as osmoregulation, bile acid production, energy metabolism, calcium regulation, and neuromodulation. Not to mention, taurine has potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
The last ingredient in the hydration and recovery matrix is coconut water powder which is a phenomenal rehydration agent. Coconut water powder is naturally rich in electrolytes including magnesium and potassium. Two minerals are key for optimal muscle and nerve function.
Coconut water contains several important vitamins including B vitamins, minerals, and trace elements such as zinc, selenium, iodine, sulfur, and manganese. Coconut water also contains enzymes, amino acids, antioxidants, and phytonutrients.
Lastly, coconut water is one of the richest dietary sources of cytokinins which are plant hormones that seem to have powerful anti-aging effects. Coconut water is hypoallergenic and alkalizing; therefore, it can potentially help restore the body’s natural pH balance and counteract the negative effects of an acidic diet.
To increase energy levels, without the jittery effects of synthetic caffeine, we use the following ingredients:
Anecdotally, natural caffeine gives users a smoother yet sustained rise in energy, focus, and alertness. By using a combination of natural caffeine, green coffee bean extract, and green tea leaf extract BAANG can provide you with clean energy without the crash. This is one of the many reasons why BAANG is superior to energy drinks.
Caffeine effectively raises energy levels by inhibiting adenosine which is a nucleotide that decreases neural activity leading to fatigue. Caffeine is one of the most widely used and researched ingredients in the sports nutrition industry. Caffeine has been proven time and again to be both safe and effective.
The following ingredients are simply added to improve the taste and mixability of BAANG:
Keep in mind that this list may vary slightly depending on the flavor.
