The sports nutrition industry has seen a lot of newcomers over the past few years, and they continue to roll in, with one of the latest being the Canadian company ZAP Energy. With a name like that, it’s no surprise the first category the brand is taking on is the heavily saturated and fiercely competitive world of pre-workouts with a supplement officially titled Thundershock.
ZAP Energy’s Thundershock is a strong product for a first outing, featuring complete transparency, reliable ingredients, and, most importantly, solid dosages. The brand has built Thundershock as a comprehensive pre-workout, packed full of components to support all of the core effects, including increased energy and mental focus, and enhanced pumps and performance.
To power the pumps and performance in Thundershock, ZAP Energy has thrown in a hefty 7.5g of pure citrulline, 2.5g of betaine, 4g of beta-alanine, and a gram each of agmatine and taurine. Then, supporting the energy and focus portion of the pre-workout, you get 300mg of alpha-GPC, another 300mg of the nootropic mushroom lion’s mane, 100mg of theobromine, 1.5g of tyrosine, and a sizeable 325mg of the classic caffeine.
Everything in ZAP Energy’s Thundershock is topped off with the ever-present, premium, and proven absorption-enhancing ingredient AstraGin, at 50mg per serving. Once again, for a first formulation, Thundershock is an impressive supplement, and it’s priced very reasonably for what you get with a tub of 20 full servings in the one Watermelon flavor costing $55.99 (42.13 USD).
