Podium Finish Lozenges

The Lozenge

Whats in it and why you should choose us.

Our lozenges contain 330mg of the ultimate adaptogen, Ashwagandha. Ashwagandha has been used for over 3000 years as a revitalising tonic in Indian medicine. This 'ultimate adaptogen' promotes endurance, cognitive performance and holds anti inflammatory properties. Perfect for whatever a tough workout throws at the body. 

Our caffeine and ashwagandha energy lozenges deliver stamina on two fronts. Firstly with caffeine and its ability to reduce perceived effort and secondly with ashwagandha, a natural herb renowned for improving VO2 max & its ability to boost athletic performance in a number of studies. 

What sets us apart from our rivals? The fact that our caffeine and ashwagandha energy lozenges release energy in a sustained manner. This allows for a controllable energy boost without the 'ups and downs' you would experience with other sports nutrition products. 

Here at Podium Finish we know how important natural ingredients are to our athletes. That's why all of our ingredients are naturally sourced, vegan friendly and gluten free. Our formula also contains no artificial flavourings or sweeteners and boasts a passageway clearing hit of mint menthol to aid oxygen consumption and breath-ability whilst exercising.

Adaptogens are known for their stress reduction properties and ashwagandha is specifically effective in this regard. A number of studies link ashwagandha consumption with the reduction of the stress hormone, cortisol. Not only does this herb reduce stress but it also boosts mood and helps fight symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Our lozenges also contain a competition beating 50mg of caffeine which is roughly the same amount you would find in a cup of coffee. Caffeine has a long list of benefits and has been utilized as an energy source for over 200 years. This naturally occurring substance can boost power, heighten focus, improve reaction time & increase calorie burn.

As an avid cyclist & not being a fan of gels I wanted to try something that I could use on the go. These have hit the nail on the head for me, slow release means no energy swings. What doesn’t ashwagandha do?  Really pleased, will buy again. 💪🏼👍🏼

These are great if you don't get on with gels as they are easy to just pop in your mouth and suck whilst on a long run. These provide more then enough energy from the caffeine and ashwagandha to carry you through your workout.

MIXING CAFFEINE AND ASHWAGANDHA

Why mix caffeine and ashwagandha? One boosts energy whilst the other reduces stress. These two are often referred to as a perfect pair and compliment each other perfectly.

Whilst high levels of caffeine can increase anxiety and can lead to jitters and stress, people suffering from fatigue often see these as a necessary evil to getting the phenomenal energy caffeine delivers. Here at Podium Finish we wanted all that boundless energy without any of those nasty jitters.

How do we achieve this? One word…Ashwagandha. This evergreen shrub is classed as an ‘adaptogen’ which helps aid the body in handling stress. Clinical studies have demonstrated the effect Ashwagandha consumption has on reducing cortisol levels. When elevated by caffeine, our ashwagandha mix offsets the increase in bodily stress. All you’re left with is bounds of clean energy with fewer side effects.

 

DOING AWAY WITH THE BITTER TASTE.

A large amount of ashwagandha based energy products leave a less-then desired bitter taste in the mouth. The way the Podium Finish lozenge gets round this is by using the world most bio-available ashwagandha named KSM-66. KSM-66 is produced using the most advanced scientific methodologies so that the bitter taste is removed completely. Caffeine itself is also notoriously bitter however working with the some of the leading confectioners in the UK, our menthol formula has completely offset any bitter undertones. You get taste, energy, and none of the nasty caffeine related shakes!
