1. Safflower oil: CLA, oleic, stearic
This is probably the main thing to consider. Safflower oil is rich in both CLA and MCTs. CLA is a testosterone-booster which helps improve mood and performance in the short-mid term.
It improves hormonal and metabolic wellbeing, helping you to burn more fat as fuel. It’s the main ingredient in coconut oil, and combines perfectly with other ingredients in this product.
2. Pomegranate seed oil
This is all about improving blood-flow to support endurance, recovery, and long-term growth. It’s comparable to things like pomegranate seed extracts that are used in pump and endurance supplements – but as an oil.
3. Coconut oil: MCT oils
This is a classic – MCTs are great for improving your metabolic health and function.
This helps you get the most energy from food and your bodyfat, improving your endurance performance, and helping you better-regulate your performance factors like blood pressure, heart rate, and blood-flow.
This also makes it a perfect supplement for low-carb, high fat diets like keto, making the most of dietary fats.
4. Peppermint oil
This is here for your head. It’s a form of stress-control and mood-regulation. It’s also a perfect digestive aid, which is perfect pre-workout or with other foods/oils.
This is a synergist: it’s here to make sure you get the best digestive results from the other ingredients, allowing you to take this product fasted with no problems.
5. Grapefruit peel oil
Grapefruit peel is great for assisting with the utilisation of bodyfat for energy – just like MCTs. It also goes perfectly with the polyphenols in things like peppermint and pomegranate oils.
It’s also a perfect synergist with caffeine – one of many in this product. It’s why ATP recommend taking 2ml of Amperage with your morning coffee – a huge step up on the old-fashioned “bulletproof coffee”, and it tastes better!
The oils in this product provide a variety of different benefits that add up. There are some obvious ones that this product was designed to offer, while others seem to be great second-class benefits that round out the product.
Most of the benefits associated with CLA and similar oils are about improving mood, mental function, and hormonal health. CLA is a short-term testosterone-regulator for 2-3 weeks, as well as maintaining better mood and mental performance.
The secondary ingredients around this like MCTs build around this with better health and metabolic function. Pomegranate and grapefruit back it up with a mix of metabolic and blood-flow benefits to support better workouts and better recovery.
This is one of very few products that uses oil-based pre-workouts, and we love how well-thought-out the synergies are. The oils in this product work well together for the short-term boost in testosterone and mood, backed up with long-term performance-enhancing benefits.
We also love how well this fits into a coffee (black, specifically), which makes the absolute most of the caffeine and the amazing combined benefits of caffeine and these oils!
