Can I Mix Energy Products?
To aid and support our incredible in-house Customer Service (CS) team, we wanted to throw together a quick response to a commonly asked question - Can I Mix MTN OPS Energy Drinks / Products and is it safe?
Short Answer - Yes.
Long Answer - Go ahead and sit down for a second. Let’s dive in.
The first thing to understand about MTN OPS energy drink mix products, referring specifically to ENDURO, IGNITE and YETI, is that they all share the same base formula.
In this article about each energy product, we educate everyone on the simple fact that ENDURO is the base formula that IGNITE and YETI are built upon.
Enduro is non-stimulated (a caffeine free drink) and focuses primarily on supporting circulation throughout the body by producing an additional boost of nitric-oxide, a naturally occurring compound in the human body already, through two key amino acids - L-Arginine and L-Citrulline. Enduro, and IGNITE and YETI, all contain 5 grams of L-Arginine and 1 gram of L-Citrulline. Remember these number as they’ll become important shortly.
These ingredients, as mentioned, ramp up nitric oxide production in your body to promote blood flow, which results in more oxygen and a smooth, natural energy. In a short way, it helps your body do what it’s already doing, just at a higher output.
With that understanding in mind.. Let’s paint a picture as to why you can mix these products and at what point they may not do what you think.
Numerous studies have shown that max optimal dosages of L-Arginine and L-Citrulline are 9 and 3-6 grams, respectively.
Simple math tells us that mixing any two, or double scooping, MTN OPS energy drink products gives us 10g of L-Arginine and 2g of L-Citrulline. Comparing these numbers to recommended dosages and we’re okay.
So, why would I want to mix or double scoop a product? We’d answer your question with a question of our own.. How much energy do you need and what do you need the energy for?
A couple scenarios when you may want to raise the ante..
Scenario 1 - You prefer to not consume caffeine, but need a clean energy for hitting the gym or cardio - Two scoops of Enduro has got you covered.
Scenario 2 - You’re at the office, dragging your tail, and need a pick-me-up to get through the next meeting and then to your daughter's piano recital.. Mixing ENDURO and IGNITE will throttle your body to get the blood flowing and the nootropics of IGNITE will bring back that focus so you can actively participate in the meeting instead of staring at the back of your eye lids.
Scenario 3 - You’re about to hit the weights, haven’t tapped out your boundaries of caffeine intake and need to set a new PR in the squat rack.. A double down on YETI will get your mind, and muscles, right.
While there’s many other times it may be appropriate to double down on MTN OPS Energy Drink Mixes, it’s always important to assess personal tolerance and if there’s ever a concern, consult your local health professional. Everyone is different and what works for some, may not work for all. Be responsible, be safe and enjoy the right levels of energy to ELEVATE YOUR LIFE!
