This Is The Best Pre-Workout Ingredient You’re Not Using

Despite what social media influencers may say, balance isn’t an easy thing to achieve in life. Beneficial and worth it? Yes, absolutely. But it's not easy. In fact, it’s quite hard.

Work commitments, a booked (post-pandemic) social calendar, endless errands to run, all while trying to smash out your wellness goals? Phew, that can be overwhelming and tough to manage on your own.

The good news is, it doesn’t have to be that way. Sometimes you need a little extra help to reach that coveted state of balance in your life. And that’s where we come in.

Consider us you hype squad when it comes to all things balance, health and wellness. And with that, we think it’s our duty to spill all the tea on one of our favorite new innovative ingredients, SenActiv. This powerful ingredient will help you amp up your energy so that you can hit the gym feeling nothing short of fantastic.

In fact, SenActiv is one of our hero ingredients featured in our high-quality (and highly popular) Pre-Game formula.

What has gotten us so excited about this ingredient? In today’s post, we’re talking all about SenActiv: the best pre-workout ingredient you’re not using…yet.

Developed by NuLiv Science, SenActiv is a powerhouse ingredient that gives you the energy you need to amp up your workout. NuLiv claims to shake up and innovate the wellness industry with their science-first, revolutionary patented ingredients. 

Senactiv is not your average pre-workout ingredient. Kicking Pre-Game into high gear, SenActiv includes powerful adaptogenic extracts (panax notoginseng and rose hips) that can help speed up muscle recovery, improve gut health and even slow down the aging process. 

How, you ask? The adaptogen notoginseng is packed with ginsenoside R1 that has recovery-enhancing effects. Plant-based and patented, SenActiv also promotes an essential process to keep homeostasis in check (aka autophagy) which helps cleanse damaged cells, resulting in optimal cellular regeneration. Hello youthful appearance.

When an ingredient has been developed in a lab rather than nature, it’s best practice to understand exactly where it came from. This also rings true for us here at Cira. We scour suppliers to ensure we are introducing only the best formulas and ingredients into our supplements. 

Since we use NuLiv’s SenActiv in our popular product, Pre-Game, we’d like to offer some background into the company who has developed this powerhouse ingredient.  

So, who is the company that has developed SenActiv and can you trust them? Established way back when MMMBop topped the charts in 1997, NuLiv Science is a team of scientists, innovators and creatives focused on developing and communicating the power of their patented ingredients. 

Since their inception, they’ve grown into a full range ingredient supplier, early-stage developer of nutraceuticals and turnkey service provider to the dietary supplement and cosmeceutical industry.

NuLiv Science focuses on the concept of “Qi” which is said to bridge western science and eastern medicine together. A foregin concept and practice in western medicine, Qi (loosely translated to “vital energy”) is the root of traditional Chinese medicine. It is believed that Qi measures the health, well-being and vitality of a person as it governs all biological and physiological activities in the human body. 

With that information, it’s no surprise that strong Qi is associated with improved energy, increased stamina and has an adaptogenic effect when trying to ward off stress. 

This fusion of science-backed western medicine with traditional Chinese medicine techniques that have been used for centuries is what allows NuLiv Science to flourish as a trusted leader in the wellness industry.


As far as SenActiv goes, there seems to be no other ingredient on the market that can compare to its efficacy and thus, their popularity from top wellness brands. Let’s get into why. 

SenActiv is a great choice for those who would like to decrease (or watch) their caffeine intake. Since caffeine can be a powerful stimulant, people can tend to feel shaky or “wired” when they drink a certain amount. Instead of using caffeine to boost energy levels, SenActiv will naturally help your body produce natural energy. 

Secondly, SenActiv has a unique formulation that is backed by 10 grueling years of scientific research that includes 2 in vivo studies and 4 human clinical trials. 

Finally, this innovative ingredient assists with recovery by increasing glycogen levels and actually removes old muscle cells and replaces them with new healthy muscle cells. Impressive.

Why should you care if “SenActiv” is a listed ingredient on your favorite supplement’s label? Well, we now know that SenActiv elevates any supplement or product to promote true energy production and human performance.

Helps Re-Energize. 

With the help of Senactiv, the production of citrate synthase is increased. This is important because citrate synthase is an important enzyme that is responsible for producing more ATP. 

Adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, is the principal molecule for storing and transferring energy in cells. Therefore, SenActiv helps amp up the energy needed to smash out a high-quality sweat sesh. 

Helps Regenerate 

This ingredient also promotes increased performance in and out of the gym by quite literally regenerating your cells. As shown in human clinical studies conducted by NuLife Science, SenActive can actually remove old cells and replenish them with new, healthy cells.

Aids in Anti-Aging and Overall Wellness

Without getting too nerdy here, SenActiv is the only natural phytocompound (chemical compound of plant origin) with published human studies showing that the ingredient can actually slow down part of the aging process in muscle tissue.  

They do this through the clearance of senescent cells. Senescence is triggered primarily as a response to damage, allowing for suppression of potentially dysfunctional, transformed, or aged cells. Therefore, SenActiv gives way for optimal cellular regeneration. 

Great For All Wellness Enthusiasts. 

Are you a pro-athlete, training for your next competition?  A weekend warrior who loves to stay active but also loves to enjoy their favorite meals? It’s all about balance and doing what you feel is right for you. 

SenActive is suitable for all types of wellness enthusiasts who have goals to perform one percent better than who you were yesterday. 

There it is. SenActiv in all of its innovative glory. If you want to try this powerhouse ingredient for yourself, we’ve got you covered. Our popular Pre-Game formula comes in six different flavors for you to choose from, armed with the power of SenActiv.

We love how easy it is to get our recommended 50g dose of SenActive by mixing a scoop of Pre-Game with a glass of water. Want in? Click here to learn more about Pre-Game.
