Top 5 Pregnancy Pre-Workout Supplements
Possibly the most highly requested topic, and an extremely common question that we're asked at here Supplement Warehouse is whether or not Women can continue taking Pre-Workout Supplements during Pregnancy, and if so, which ones are safe. We decided to provide you with this article on that exact topic, & answer those questions for you. Ultimately, many Experts state that Pregnant Women can safely consume between 150mg and 200mg of Caffeine without it causing any negative effects during their Pregnancy. However, The American Pregnancy Association *does* recommend that Pregnant Women should avoid Caffeine as much as possible. If you are Pregnant & are wanting to take a low-Caffeine Pre-Workout Supplement, we would first recommend that you consult with your OB/Physician, and decide whether or not taking a low-Caffeine Pre-Workout Supplement during Pregnancy is right/healthy for you. Once you've done so, we've compiled a list of our top 5 best low-Caffeine Pre-Workouts for Pregnant Women below. Browse away, Mamas!
#1 Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy: Optimum Nutrition's Amino Energy is considered to be a low-Stim Pre-Workout in that can be taken as a single Scoop, delivering as little as just 50mg of Caffeine per scoop. Amino Energy also comes in a variety of delicious tasting flavors, and contains added Amino Acids for recovery + hydration.
#2 Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals Off The Chain: Off The Chain contains 5g of Amino Acids, much like Amino Energy, however the Caffeine it delivers is a bit higher. Off The Chain contains 160mg of Caffeine per Scoop. Pregnant Women can also decide to take just a half Scoop of Off The Chain instead, to cut down on the Caffeine even more. Off The Chain comes in 9 delicious & unique flavors.
#3 'Merica Labz Stars 'N Pipes: 'Merica Labz Stars 'N Pipes is a non-Stimulant Pre-Workout (that means there's no Caffeine, DMHA, or any other Stimulants), so Pregnant Women worried about Stimulants can be assured that 'Merica Labz' formula contains none. Although it contains no Stims, it will still provide you with extreme energy & endurance. Stim-free Pre's contain ingredients that'll help with Mental Cognition & Blood flow. Stars 'N Pipes contains 6,000mg of L-Citrulline, 5,000mg of HydroMax, & 5,000mg of Betaine Anhydrous.
#4 Allmax Nutrition A:Cuts: A:Cuts is another Amino Acid formula with a little bit of added Caffeine. A:Cuts contains Green Coffee & CLA, making it slightly Thermogenic (fat burning). A:Cuts contains 127mg of Caffeine, making it slightly stronger than Amino Energy. Again, Pregnant Women can also choose to take just a half scoop to cut back on some of that Caffeine. A:Cuts contains 4.2g BCAA's, & is also offered in a variety of delicious flavors.
#5 Purus Labs Condense: Condense has the highest Caffeine content out of these 5 products, containing 200mg of Caffeine per Scoop. Condense also contains Chloride, Potassium, Sodium, Beta Alanine, Betaine Anhydrous, & Betaine Nitrate. Purus Labs Condense is completely free from unwanted Fillers & Dyes. This Pre-Workout may be more desirable for Pregnant Women big on weightlifting/resistance training. Women who practice Yoga, Pilates, or other lighter workouts may find more success using some of the other products mentioned above.
Just to reiterate, *we urge you* to consult with your OB/Physician *before* taking a Pre-Workout or any other Supplement while you're Pregnant. Feel free to show them these options, along with their Nutritional Facts, so that they can review them for you as well.
