The Power of Pre JYM 1) No Proprietary Blends Look at the supplement facts panel on your favorite pre-workout product, and you’ll most likely see the term “proprietary blend.” Supplement companies want you to think this means they’ve created a special blend of ingredients that magically work together to deliver unique results. Because this blend is so amazing, they have to keep the amounts of each ingredient secret so no other company steals the formula. The truth, however, is that propriety blends can serve a different purpose. They allow some supplement companies to hide how little of each ingredient they’ve actually put in a product. This can result in cheap, under-dosed, ineffective supplements. Pre JYM doesn’t use proprietary blends. Take a look at the supplement facts panel and you’ll see the actual amounts of all 13 ingredients. I have nothing to hide. I’m proud of the amount of each and every ingredient I’ve included.
2) Proper Amounts For the reasons detailed above, many supplement companies are moving toward transparency and axing proprietary blends. That’s a good thing. However, some of these companies are still guilty of grossly under-dosing ingredients. Take citrulline malate, for example. The research on this potent amino acid shows that you need six grams per dose. While most pre-workout products leave out citrulline entirely, and a few of them provide anywhere close to six grams.
3) No “Abbreviated” Formulas A handful of companies are as fed up as I am with proprietary blends and under-dosed formulas, but they fall short by using “abbreviated” formulas. An abbreviated formula is one that uses proper dosing of all ingredients but includes a few ingredients. Take, for example, a pre-workout formula that includes beta-alanine, creatine, caffeine and tyrosine. There’s nothing wrong with it, but it could be a lot more effective through the addition of ingredients like citrulline malate, betaine, and BCAAs, to name just a few. Why would companies not create the most robust formula possible? Because adding more ingredients costs too much money. Pre JYM includes 13 ingredients that complement one another to prime the body for intense workouts, making it a complete pre-workout supplement. If you’re looking for the most complete exercise supplement program available on the market today, take my Post JYM Active Matrix after your workout to get even greater amounts of potent ingredients like Creatine HCl, Betaine, and Beta-Alanine.
4) No Concentrates Some companies also try to trick buyers by calling their pre-workout product “concentrated.” A serving of one of these “concentrated” products can contain as few as 3 to 6 grams of powder. What kind of magic did they use to cram enough creatine, beta-alanine, citrulline, arginine, caffeine, and other ingredients into that tiny serving? They didn’t use any magic, which is why some of those “concentrated” formulas also include proprietary blends. That’s also why the serving size of Pre JYM is more than 26 grams. It contains 13 ingredients at proper, powerful amounts.
5) JS, Not BS I’ve been studying supplement science in the lab and gym for decades. I’ve been delivering supplement advice to millions of people in the pages of Muscle & Fitness, FLEX and Muscle & Fitness Hers, as well as my own website, JimStoppani.com, for over a decade. Most importantly, I’ve been training since I was 11 years old. Before each of my workouts, I draw on all of my experience and all of my education to concoct my own pre-workout supplement, combining ingredients from 13 different bottles and tubs. That’s why I developed Pre JYM. I wanted to give my friends, colleagues, all of you, and myself the ability to access, in one bottle, the best ingredients in amounts suggested to help build lean muscle, torch body fat, improve strength, and boost speed.*
