Formulated to increase focus, energy levels and overall performance whether in a training session or competition or game day. No tingles, no big hit and drop off. Game Ready shot is a different feeling to the original but delivers in terms of focus and performance
A new formula..
First, let me state if you love the original Game Ready on match / competition day then stick with that formula. You may find the shot is a good addition for training though.
Now working with teams for many years has shown me that individuals needs differ and game day is no exception. The best nutrition practices take this into account and you will see tables pre game with a wide range of snacks and supplements available.
PAS has wanted a shot version for some time to complement our range and it was clear at the start that a shot version of the original formula would not work. Creatine is not stable in liquid format and 3g L-Tyrosine will not mix well in 60ml. Acetyl-L-Tyrosine is more soluble but with a very poor absorption rate so that was not an option. Then the beta alanine question – some players don’t like that feeling and in very hot climates its not desirable, does beta alanine work acutely if not already using it, probably not, so we thought lets leave it out and have a different feel product.
We use an ingredient called Alpha GPC in original Game Ready based on research on potential for explosive power and focus but the new field of nootropics led us to choosing Cognizin® , a patented source of Citicoline, which increases phosphatidylcholine that is critical for healthy brain function. (See infograph in supporting information).
We also added Taurine which a meta analysis of 10 human trials shows improvements in endurance performance. The Effects of an Oral Taurine Dose and Supplementation Period on Endurance Exercise Performance in Humans: A Meta-Analysis 2018, Waldron et al

We have maintained the Citrulline at 3g for its role as a Nitric Oxide pre-cursor and its ability to buffer acidosis and blood lactate which has been shown to provide performance benefits for athletes in training sessions which involve aerobic power or strength performance.
So the real big addition, and what makes the Game Ready Shot so unique is the 300mg Nitrate from Oxystorm®, the amaranthus extract sourced from sustainably grown Amaranthus (Red Spinach). Oxystorm® helps in boosting Nitric oxide, the essential molecule that aids various integral functions in human body, especially during oxygen deficient condition with the supply of nitric oxide. Oxystorm® helps in reducing fatigue and maintain an optimum level of functioning.
Beet shots have been popular for many years but recently Nitrate Shots from red spinach have become the vogue, possibly as they taste a bit better than beetroot. PAS developed a product for one of its teams prior to a World Cup that included Oxystorm and other ingredients and the feedback was very positive and we have wanted to bring a product with Oxystorm to the market for some time. The Game Ready Shot contains the highest level of Nitrate sourced solely from Amaranthus (Red Spinach), i.e Oxystorm®
A recent study suggests the combination of Citrulline and Nitrate products at the doses found in the new Game Ready Shot when taken over a 6-week period could increase maximal and endurance strength: Combined Effects of Citrulline Plus Nitrate Rich Beetroot Extract Co-Supplementation on Maximal and Endurance Strength and Aerobic Power in Trained Male Triathletes. Burgos et al, 2021. Nutrients.
The caffeine dosage has been reduced to 200mg - making it more appropriate for lighter bodyweights, those who wish to use Game Ready for training in PM/early evening (and want to sleep after).
Using patented brands with the highest quality standards is vitally important to ensure we can have confidence in delivering performance when you need it most.
