Staunch Supplements is a new brand launched over the last couple of months that is inspired and backed by the Generation Iron 2 star Calum Von Moger. Staunch has started out with a relatively different line-up of products featuring a handful of semi-complex formulas and three different pre-workouts.
According to Staunch Supplements, the way to interpret its name or how it wants to come across is “firm or steadfast in principle, adherence, loyalty, etc., as a person”. Basically, a strong new brand that stands by reliable and honest products.
We’ll start the break down of Staunch Supplements’ line-up with its semi-complex items which include Whey Isolate, an isolate protein powder featuring a blend of digestive enzymes. Next is BCAA + Hydration, a mix of coconut water and Sustamine glutamine for hydration, and a massive 7g of BCAAs for muscle building and recovery. Lastly, you have Creatine Five, a formula made up of five different types of creatine combining for a total of 4.95g per serving.
We now move on to Calum Von Moger’s Staunch pre-workouts with Pre Original, Pre Zero-Stim, and Koala Freak. All of the products are fairly complete pre-workouts, featuring ingredients for energy, focus, strength, performance, and pump, although Pre Zero-Stim not so much when it comes to energy. From what we can tell the main thing separating the pre-workouts is their balance of effects, with Pre Zero-Stim being more about pump and no stimulants, Pre Original an even combination of everything, and Koala Freak better energy and performance.
Staunch Supplements’ Pre Original features a lot of solid highlights such as 6g of citrulline malate for muscle pumps, 2g of CarnoSyn beta-alanine for performance, and a light 180mg of caffeine for energy and focus. Pre Zero-Stim has a similar mix of ingredients, but with a few changes such as Nitrosigine instead of arginine AKG, orotic acid instead of beta-alanine, and a caffeine-free energy and focus blend.
As for Koala Freak, that at least appears to be Staunch Supplements’ premium and most powerful pre-workout. It features a lot of the ingredients and doses found in Pre Original, as well as 33% more agmatine, double the beta-alanine, the addition of 450mg of Peak-ATP, and a slightly different energy and focus blend with twice as much caffeine at 360mg per serving.
