Q: Is the Stamina Pre-workout safe to consume while breastfeeding?
First and foremost, we recommend consulting a physician. The main concern is caffeine consumption. Upon consulting a physician, we determined that someone who regularly drinks coffee could safely replace it with a half scoop of STAMINA formula. We would still recommend checking with your doctor before trying STAMINA.
Q: Is the BCAA Formula safe to consume while breastfeeding?
First and foremost, we recommend consulting a physician. BCAA does not contain any caffeine; it contains artificial sweeteners. Upon consulting a physician, our formula is safe to consume while breastfeeding.

First and foremost, we recommend consulting a physician when starting a new supplement, especially during pregnancy or breastfeeding. However, there is no known harm to consuming collagen.
- There is 9g of protein per serving in our formula. Protein is essential for the production of breast milk. Breastfeeding women require an additional 25 grams of protein per day.
- Women are at risk of bone resorption during pregnancy, and hydrolyzed collagen has properties that support bone health.
- Collagen is known to help reduce joint pain, which can occur during pregnancy/early postpartum.
- Collagen is rich in amino acids, which your body uses to build keratin in the hair to help with postpartum hair loss.
- There is 120 mg of Hyaluronic acid per serving in our formula. HA works by acting as a cushion and lubricant in the joints and other tissues. It is naturally occurring in the body and is deemed safe; however, few known studies show its effects on those pregnant or breastfeeding. Check with your physician before starting use.
MEDICATION AND HEALTH
Q: I am interested in trying STAMINA. I have seen warning labels advising people on blood thinners not to take pre-workout. Why is it not recommended?
You certainly want to be cautious with stimulants and heart conditions. The caffeine in STAMINA may have adverse effects with blood thinner medications.We strongly recommend you check with your physician before taking. See our ingredient list here.
Q: I have Type-1 Diabetes. Are Sweat Supplements diabetic-friendly, as in, no added sugar?
We recommend consulting your physician before using our products. There are no added sugars in BCAA or STAMINA; they both contain artificial sweeteners. BCAA contains sucralose and natural/artificial flavour. STAMINA contains stevia, sucralose, and natural/artificial flavour.
Q: Why is there Sucralose in STAMINA & BCAA?
The taste of our products was a top priority when creating Sweat Supplements. As a result, it has been a driving sales factor for us. Sucralose was able to get us the result we were looking for at a smaller dose when compared to Stevia. In contrast to competitors using Sucralose, we are at a lower average. As with most things in life, everything in moderation can be safe.
