ESG Trends

As mentioned earlier, the pre-workout supplement industry is driven by the fundamental demand of fitness and health, where the products are targeted towards these factors.  Although the pre workout supplement products impact the health of consumers at community level positively. These products create a significant positive influence on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal 3 - Good Health and Well-being.

The products contain different ingredients such as caffeine, beta-alanine, branched chain amino acids, creatine, nitric oxide, tyrosine, taurine, and other such ingredients, which enhance the performance of the consumer when taken, either in form of capsule, powder or shake.

Caffeine impacts on the muscle strength, increasing the levels, thereby supplementing in the intense workouts, while reducing the fatigue. Creatine is reported to show an increase in high intensity workouts and lean body mass gains from such workouts. Beta alanine is shown to reduce acidity caused from workouts.

According to a report, at least 86% products contain caffeine, 87% products consist of beta alanine, 71% products contain citrulline and 63% products contain tyrosine, 49% products contain creatine, and 51 % products contain taurine.

Another study has shown that at least 54% of the consumers, who regularly use the market, have reported side effects caused due to the regular consumption. The aforementioned ingredients have been reported to cause side effects, for example, caffeine when consumed regularly, is reported to cause side effects such as insomnia, nausea, drowsiness and increased heart rate are prevalent. It must be iterated that many of the pre workout supplement products have high amounts of caffeine, as much as 500mg per serving, where a 240 ml cup of coffee serves 95mg of caffeine.

Further, creatine is stated to show side effects such as water retention and weight gain as side effects. Beta alanine, an amino acid is reported to cause side effects such as paresthesia, tingling sensation in hands and feet. Niacin, another ingredient, is shown to cause red patches on skin. Citrulline is supposed to increase blood flow to muscles, however, side effects reported were headaches and migraine, as the blood flow in the brain increases.

Thus, there is a significant influence from these products on health & safety of users/consumers which is an important social pillar within the ESG sphere. Therefore, companies in this sector are accountable to the negative health and safety impacts among communities and would be specific in addressing these key issues within their ESG practices.

Some of the odd side-effects of the products in the industry hinder the progress of companies contributing to the UN SDG 3 - Good Health and Well-being.
