VitaStack, the stack above stacks?
Ok, let me first say that I have used this VitaStack twice, and I was happy with it. It is hard to break down a multi because they are essentially all the same as far as vitamins and minerals go. However this particular stack up breaks it down into different pills, I see them doing this so the consumer has a vague idea what vitamin/mineral does what. The 9 Pills are as follows;
Anabolinex;Thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, B vitamins 6 and 12, biotin, Beta-alanine, and citrulline to name the most common. This is where you are going to get your "energy boost" more than anything I would say.
Electrofuse; phosphorous, calcium, sodium, potassium, going to just enrich your body with electrolytes, pretty obvious here.
Skelotocore; Vitamins C, D, and K, more phosphorous, calcium and potassium. You will also find your joint support here as Glucosamine. You will see too that it contains Molybdenum, here is what may scare some, I work in the aviation community and we actually use this to lube up cables, and hinges and have always been taught that it "causes" cancer. However not many people know that molybdenum actually assists in breaking down sulfite toxins in the body, in small doses of course.
Energoforce; pretty much all the same ingredients you will find in an energy drink, taurine, guarana, and Tyrosine which has been used to promote focus, and used to treat ADHD, ADD, narcolepsy, and depression. It is also a non-essential amino acid.
Cardiopulse; just your basic Omega 3, 6 and 9. here. No secret what these do.
Metabocore; Chromium, pancreatin enzyme blend, papain, and bromelain. An enzyme infused supplement that just promotes rapid conversion of nutrients that your body needs. For me personally I felt hungry a lot, maybe had something to do with this.
and lastly Immunocharge; This one is just loaded with antioxidants like ginseng, grape seed, red wine and pomegranate extracts. Also vitamins A and E. Milk thistle and NAC for the liver. This supplement would be popular for an "on cycle" support for some PH users in my opinion.
Ok, so I know that was a lot of information, and I tried to break it down the best I could. I will grade it pretty basically,
Effectiveness: 8/10, Like most multis, your body uses how ever much it needs at the time, everyday may be different i.e.. hard training days, or rest days. So at times you may just pee most of it out. However, I never noticed that neon color urine. I felt my body use most of it, and overall felt energized, my joints stayed moist, and even gained some decent muscle mass taking this.
Taste/Easy to swallow: 9/10, Well, as far as taste goes, it is a pill, so not much taste here, however, I did not get any of those dreaded fish burps, or after taste. Pretty easy to swallow these too, no horse pills here.
Value: 6/10 Both times I have used this product I haven't paid more than $30 for it, however, you only get 30 days worth, so basically a $1 a day for a month cycle. Now you can get a multi for $10-15 with 45 servings or more, and it is pretty obvious they mark this product up a lot like most vitamin stacks because they do all the work for you in breaking down each supplement into what it actually does, they also gave everything a fancy name like Immunocharge, or Energoforce, I personally think they tried a little to hard. But like many say you get what you pay for. And if you have no problem spending a couple extra bucks, I say go for it. Over time though, as I gained more experience and knowledge I have learned more and was able to buy the same ingredients for less and get the same effect.
Overall: 7/10. Good product here, for beginners, and the advanced crowd, it boils down to preference for the individual, If you like the the all in one stacks, I say go for it, honestly it is a cheaper alternative than other companies, where you are going to spend $40-50. I have to say though that this VitaStack is targeted to those hard trainers, who want to get big and strong fast, and for those "on cycle" guys, nothing wrong with that. I just wish they put more servings in it. Just do your research and shop around. And I always tell my friends never pay retail price for anything.
I hope this helps for all of you. Thanks for reading!
