What are nootropics and how do they work?
You may know them as “smart drugs” or “cognitive enhancers” but nootropics are drugs that are used to enhance memory, increase mental alertness and concentration together with boosting energy levels and wakefulness. Many people turn to the use of nootropics primarily for boosting mental performance and reducing anxiety instead of prescription medications.
Nootropics are believed to work on a variety of different systems in the body simultaneously. Their biggest impact however is on the Central Nervous System or (CNS). Nootropics basically work from the ground up, in the sense that they work at a cellular and molecular level to augment higher faculties of cognitive function and stress adaptation.

Koala Freak Pre-workout Flavours
Fruity, sweet rainbow goodness. Think rainbow Skittles mixed with sherbet and you’ve got Unicorn Blood. This is one for the lovers of all things sweet. Sweet but not over-the-top, Staunch Nation have truly done well with this flavour profile.
Peach and mango are two flavours that seem to marry together just perfectly. Sweet, summery and deliciously moreish, Peach Mango is easy to drink and incredibly satisfying. If you are more a lover of the fruity and vibrant flavours, Peach Mango is sure to be a real hit.
Strawberry Pina Koala
Not Pina Colada, it’s Pina Koala. Yep, that’s right, Staunch Nation have made this pun intended. The traditional pina colada is sweet and creamy with the fruity flavours from coconut and pineapple but Staunch Nation have added their little twist. The addition of strawberry gives this flavour and added sweetness that makes it all the more delicious. If you are looking for a new and unique flavour combination, Strawberry Pina Koala is well worth a try.
What is Mystery Flavour we hear you ask? Well we’re going to leave this one a mystery for you. For even the most experienced of flavour connoisseurs this one will still leave you puzzled. Delicious and sweet is all we can say, but the rest, well that’s a mystery in itself.
Just like the all time favourite Golden Circle Apple Juice, Aussie Apple will hit your taste buds right before your workout. Full of flavour and deliciously fruity, Aussie Apple is perfectly reminiscent of a really good apple juice. Not too sweet but rather just right, Aussie Apple is bursting with flavour just like a fresh green apple and will have you wanting more.
If Pina Koala is not quite to your liking then Tropical Mojito might be more up your alley. All things tropical with a refreshing twist of lime, Tropical Mojito will certainly give you that pre-training buzz. If you are wanting something a little different in the way of the traditional flavours, Tropical Mojito is a welcome change that could easily become your new favourite.
Blue ‘Baz’ Berry
If only blueberry and raspberry were a real thing! Well maybe not in real lift but Staunch Nation have made it real in the powdered version. A delicious blend of blueberry and raspberry, Blue ‘Baz’ Berry is a little bit sweet and tart all at the same time. One for those who don’t like things overly sweet, this flavour is a refreshing and satisfying pre workout beverage.
Main Koala 2.0 Pre-Workout Ingredients
Caffeine is a natural stimulant that is often featured as a key ingredient in the majority of stimulant-based pre workouts due to it’s ability to enhance and energy and focus. The main function if caffeine is in fact on the brain where it blocks the effects of adenosine and is a central nervous system and metabolic stimulant.
Adenosine is the neurotransmitter that causes the brain to relax and feel fatigued. By blocking the effects of adenosine there is an increase in energy, performance and focus.
Although Citrulline is an amino acid, it’s role in the body doesn’t include it being used to build proteins. The primary way in which this non-essential amino acid works is by increasing vasodilation to enhance blood flow. After Citrulline is consumed it is converted into Arginine. This amino acid then converts into nitric oxide which is what causes the vasodilation of blood vessels and an increase in exercise performance.
That familiar tingling sensation that you feel very soon after consuming a pre workout is the effects of Beta Alanine doing it’s thing. Beta alanine is a non-essential amino acid and works synergistically with histidine to produce Carnosine. Carnosine is stored in the muscles and works as a lactic acid buffer to decrease the amount of lactic acid accumulated in the muscles during intense physical activity.
Arginine AKG or Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate is a natural substance that is found in the body and plays a number of significant roles. Arginine AKG is well-known for it’s ability to increase energy levels and blood flow. It’s plays an essential role in the nitric oxide cycle aiding in those great muscle pumps. Essentially Arginine AKG is a nitrate supplement that works to increase the nitric oxide levels in the blood and increases blood and nutrient flow to the working muscles.
Agmatine Sulfate is classified as a nitric oxide booster and is a compound that is found naturally in the human body. When L-Arginine is decarboxylated it is transformed into Agmatine.
Most commonly Agmatine is known for it’s effects on increasing muscle growth. As it is a very effective neurotransmitter and works to enhance the mind-muscle connection to the contractive efforts of the muscles. Another benefit of Agmatine is that it also plays a role in Luteinizing hormone levels. Luteinizing hormone is responsible for stimulating the Leydig cells to produce testosterone.
Similar in structure to Glutamine, L-Theanine is a non-protein amino acid and one of the most abundant amino acids that we have in our bodies. Theanine tends to be a key ingredient in many pre workout formulas due to it’s positive effects on cognition and brain function. The compound also has the unique ability to cross the blood-brain barrier to enhance concentration and mental focus.
