Why

PEScience have moved away from the heavy stim focus of the past and with Prolific produced a preworkout designed to appeal to just about anyone. A well-balanced formula, Prolific provides something for everyone with great, transparent, scientifically validated dose of multiple nootropics for that all important focus and mind-muscle connection, caffeine for energy and high doses of two ergogenics shown to enhance muscle endurance and training capacity. You would probably need two scoops if you like a high stim preworkout but for anyone else one scoop will deliver.

When

Prolific is a dedicated preworkout so use just before and we recommend switching it out after a few weeks of use to avoid adaptation to its effects.

Who

Anyone wanting a naturally sourced preworkout which delivers on multiple levels without an over-reliance on high levels of caffeine or other stimulants.

Predator Nutrition Prolific Review

PEScience have waited a long time to release their follow-up to their previous energy based preworkout, Enhanced. During that time the brand has grown a lot and released a lot of new products so now that Prolific is here at last we were eager to see what surprises PES had in store for their loyal fanbase.

Research Backed Focus Boosters

If there is a trend in preworkout supplements it is probably the increasing attention brands have been paying to nutrients designed to increase focus during workouts rather than just focusing on using stimulants to drive mental performance.

Prolific includes no less than five ingredients which act to increase mental acuity. The use of caffeine is of course to increase energy althoughby using both fast acting Caffeine Anhydrous alongside longer acting Dicaffeine Malate, PES make sure that this is a preworkout which does not leave you to crash halfway through a session.

More than caffeine though, it is the use of Citicoline, Rhodiola Rosea, L-Theanine and Coffee Fruit Factor (NeuroFactor™) which is what makes Prolific stand out.

Citicoline - PEScience use the Cognizin® brand form of this nutrient. This is a form of Choline with improved bioavailability compared to the more commonly seen Choline Bitartrate. Cognizin® has been extensively studied with multiple research studies supporting its ability to increase motor speed and attention,[1] improve memory,[2] and enhance brain energy.[3]

L-Theanine – Theanine is an amino acid which is well regarded for its relaxing properties which in the case of a preworkout like Prolific means it helps to provide a sense of calm awareness and helps offset mood swings related to the ingestion of stimulants. So it imparts a smoother ride for users. In addition, it has been shown to boost the focus effects associated with caffeine.[4]

If you hate the feeling of anxiety and jitteriness seen when consuming a lot of caffeine you will love the benefits of theanine.

Rhodiola Rosea – We have discussed Rhodiola in our guide to nootropics discussing how it can enhance both physical and mental performance via its effects as an adaptogen. An adaptogen is a substance which helps to combat stress and fatigue which are both reasons why PEScience have included it in Prolific. As a way to naturally enhance mood and focus without the use of stimulants, Rhodiola Rosea has few peers in our view.

NeuroFactor™ - This the NEW ingredient in Prolific which maintains PEScience’s reputation for innovation. An extract of coffee fruit (not just the bean), NeuroFactor™ has been the subject of research showing it can increase Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) levels.[5]

Not to get too scientific on you but BDNF plays a role in cognitive development as well as protecting against neural decline. Also being produced during exercise, by increasing BDNF using Prolific should aid with extending your ability to stay motivated and perform at a higher level for longer.

Prolific Pumps and Endurance Enhancement

Whle Prolific does a great job of proving a user with substances that can naturally aid mental processes it balances this off with compounds whose function is to aid physical performance.

Citrulline - An amino acid with a profound vasodilatory effect, Citrulline is one of the best pump enhancers and muscle endurance boosters available today. While some preworkouts will still use Citrulline Malate, by using Citrulline itself you are assured of obtaining an equivalent amount of Citrulline as found in double the dose of Citrulline Malate. With one scoop of Prolific containing 3g of Citrulline and two scoops containing 6g, that is equivalent to 6-12g of Citrulline Malate - more than enough for huge benefits on pumps, endurance,[6] increasing anaerobic performance[7] and even reducing muscle soreness

Betaine Anhydrous - Another natural compound with a good deal of scientific support behind it, Betaine is a great accompaniment to Citrulline in Prolific with various studies supporting its ability to increase sprint performance[8] and boost workout capacity and strength.[9]

Taurine - A common ingredient in products containing caffeine, while taurine itself is not known to have major performance enhancing benefits it does exert various beneficial health properties and could also help with reducing the incidence of cramping.

What can you Expect From Prolific?

With a range of great flavours the first impression we took away is that here is yet another great tasting supplement from PEScience. Prolific is a versatile preworkout which kicks in pretty quickly thanks to the caffeine but which then maintains concentration excellently enabling a great mind-muscle connection that will make this a great choice for anyone who likes to "feel" the muscle working when exercising.

While it is not as strong in the stimulant stakes, at two scoops it will still be strong enough for the vast majority and its blend of focus and performance enhancers that last a long time means that it can be used for long workouts without the drop in performance you would normally experience.

It can also be stacked with PEScience High Volume although we would definitely only use a single scoop of Prolific in that case to avoid your pumps being too much to enable you to train comfortably (two scoops of this plus High Volume will make it feel like your arms have ballooned up in size by 100%!).

Great

This is one of my favourite pre for energy but really shines in terms of focus. This is a top pre. Try it

Good focus but take two scoops

I've tried a few new Preworkouts from predator recently and Prolific rates highly, the only thing missing for me is the kind of long lasting energy you get from hydrazine but then nothing else matches that either. For good focus, pumps, solid muscle endurance and taste prolific goes a long way to correct the wrong of the latest Alphamine version by PES.
