RELEASE THE KRAKEN:
in typical Sparta Nutrition fashion, we have formulated the most
hardcore, stimulant loaded, balanced preworkout in the industry. Insane
energy, increased pumps, unparalleled focus, and the endurance of
Leonidas himself. Scoop for scoop, no other preworkout can compare. We
took no short cuts – like always – and didn’t give a f*ck about the
price to produce.
The end result: an
ultra-powerful stimulant preworkout, balanced with premium dosages of
L-Citrulline, Beta Alanine, HydroMax Glycerol, and more than enough
stims to light up the 300.
Warning: this ain’t for the faint of heart. Seize your glory.
KRAKEN l THE BEST PREWORKOUT INGREDIENTS
known to delay the early onset of fatigue during rigorous training and
activity, as well as a precursor to nitric oxide to produce unparalleled
pumps. L-Citrulline delays pH buildup, aiding in recovery. We packed
Kraken with 4 grams of L-Citrulline (none of that cheap Malate 2:1) to
give you the true clinical dosage.
is the most formidable endurance ingredient out there on the market.
The "tingles" are a clear sign that the ingredient is working and
putting your muscles to use! More endurance equates to more work done in
the gym, which equates to more gains!
the only highly concentrated and stable form of powdered glycerol,
offering premier next level hydration. HydroMax Gylcerol is easily
absorbed and allocated through intercellular space, increasing the
concentration of fluid in the blood and tissues, directly affecting
osmolarity and the expansion and maintenance of fluid volume. HydroMax
enhances plasma and intramuscular volume, increasing the engorged
muscular appearance – aka the pump. Gylcerol has shown to help athletes
store extra water, prolong endurance, and lower heart rate, suggesting a
decreased physiological state. Once again, Kraken asserts the clinical
dosage of 2 grams of HydroMax.
Tauring widely seen in almost every popular energy drink out there and for
good reason. Taurine works synergistically with caffeine to increase
mental performance and endurance. A whopping 1 gram of Taurine will help
increase your workout capacity by producing more brute force.
is a prime example of balance. Preworkouts should not be solely about
the stimulant content. Agmatine is renowned as the best nitric oxide
booster on the market. Agamantine produces nitric oxide, dilating blood
vessels. When your blood vessels open up, you get more blood flow and
oxygen to your muscles providing that pump! Kraken has 1 gram of
Agmantine Sulfate per serving, more than any leading competitor.
is the focus ingredient. NALT is used by many people to reduce stress
hormones, and enhances your mood. With 500mg per serving, you’re getting
the best in Kraken.
Eria Jarensis Extract or
simply Eria Jarensis is the “next big stimulant” out there. Eria
Jarensis is a PEA ingredient, functioning as a neuromodulator to
stimulate the central nervous system (CNS), improve mood in a
therapeutic-boosting way, and provide a multi-faceted stimulant approach
in combination with a moderate dosage of caffeine and DMHA. Kraken goes
above any competitor’s dosage with a whopping 250mg of Eria Jarensis
is arguably one of the most widely used ingredients globally, as it has
a number of benefits. The most prized benefit is the reduced reliance
on glycogen, enhanced usage of free fatty acids, increased secretion of
beta endorphins, and boosted thermogenesis. The main role of caffeine is
the replacement of adenosine, which serves a stimulating effect on the
brain and central nervous system, as well as releasing dopamine. * Just
like with chronic coffee drinkers, caffeine will boost energy and focus.
or more commonly known as DMHA is the next innovative staple in the
accelerated stimulant matrix of Kraken. DMHA is a revolutionary
stimulant engineered to boost energy, focus, while suppressing appetite.
* At 200mg of DMHA per serving, nothing comes close. Not many
stimulants can par up with banned ingredients, but when you combine the
power of Eria Jarensis with DMHA, you have an unparalleled stimulant
matrix, especially with the dosages presented in Kraken.
L-Norvaline blocks arginase
– an enzyme that blocks the breakdown of arginine. That isn’t the only
benefit, L-Norvaline enhances the nitric oxide pumps coupled with
Agmantine Sulfate creating an unmatched pump.
opens up blood vessels, combined with other nitric oxide boosters
already in Kraken; expect roadmap forearms and veins everywhere.
Vitamin B12 is
included at 16,667% of the daily value for natural stim-free energy,
while boosting and elevating the other stims in Kraken, the energy from
B12 will keep you from a horrible high-stim crash, like with most other

Sparta Nutrition has
been one of the hottest young companies since first breaking on the
scene with they high energy and pump pre workout Kraken. Over the past
year, the company has undergone some big changes, and with that, we’ve
seen some interesting and well-dosed formulas, most recently in their
intra workout Hydra8 BCAA. The boys helping you “seize your glory” are
back again, and this time, they’re ready to unleash another Kraken.
Kraken Pump is a
stimulant-free, pump boosting pre workout sure to help even the most
nitric oxide-deficient individual get a massive pump! Kraken Pump
Ingredients Kraken Pump includes a list of ingredients to enhance your
pumps from multiple fronts -- increasing nitric oxide via two different
ways and improving cellular hydration. Add it all together, and you have
an extremely well-rounded pump-boosting pre workout! Note: Doses listed
below are based on one serving (i.e. one scoop).
Sparta’s original Kraken pre workout was
known for two things, intense energy thanks to whopping doses of Eria
Jarensis and DMHA and monster pumps thanks to a plethora of nitric oxide
boosting ingredients. Kraken Pump continues that trend of supporting
significant nitric oxide (N.O.) production with a heaping 3g serving of
pure L-Citrulline in each scoop. Citrulline is a non-essential amino
acid proven to be more effective, and more bioavailable, than
L-Arginine, the oldtimer’s pump ingredient of choice. Greater NO output
brings with it increased blood flow to working muscles, which supplies
fresh nutrients to them, removes metabolic waste, increases vascularity,
and yields one massive pump!
Also featured in the original Kraken pre workout was
the cell-volumizing, hydration-boosting, glycerol ingredient HydroMax.
Compared to glycerol monostearate (GMS) which only offers around 25%
glycerol by mass (at most), HydroMax contains 65% glycerol by weight,
giving you significantly more per serving. Glycerol saturates your
muscles with water by encouraging them to soak up additional water. This
has the two-fold effect of increasing hydration (leading to better
endurance) as well as giving you some pretty nice water-based pumps too!
You’ll also experience significantly reduced cramping and fatigue
thanks to the extra water your muscles are holding.
Orally ingested arginine has
been pretty much shown to be utterly useless for boosting nitric oxide
levels, that is until Nitrosigine came into existence. Nitrosigine is an
enhanced form of Arginine comprised of inositol-stabilized arginine
silicate that gained notoriety when it was shown to increase N.O. levels
in the body both acutely and for a time period of up to 2 weeks post
supplementation.At 750mg / scoop, you’ll need to go with the 2 scoop
serving size to get the full clinically-backed dose of 1500mg. Beta
Vulgaris (500mg) Beta Vulgaris (beetroot) is a great “supporting” N.O.
booster thanks to its high nitrate content. Nitrates increase nitric
oxide production via the nitrate-nitrite-nitric oxide different pathway,
which is different than the citrulline/arginine one. Nitrates are
powerful nitric oxide enhancers, but they’re also extremely useful
performance maximizers too since they improve blood flow, VO2 max, and
oxygen utilization. We’re fans of beetroot, but in general, the
ingredient is nice “add on” pump ingredient. The issue is that beetroot
extracts are all over the place with nitrate standardizations, and the
amount of powder you’ll need is usually much more than is included in
Coconut Water (250mg)
Coconut Water is
naturally rich in potassium, a valuable electrolyte that plays a key
role in muscle function. Including coconut water ensures your body’s
hydration and electrolyte levels are always topped off, so you’re never
at risk for dehydration while training, thus reducing your performance
and water-fueled pumps. On the Formula
