Ill try to make this short. I've been a big time weight lifter ever since I was 14, I'm 20 now. There aren't a lot of supplements out there that I haven't tried, especially pre workouts. Ive taken the original Jack3d, Nano vapor, N.O. xplode, Assault etc. One day I decided to try this stuff out and Ill be honest at first I loved it. I had probably the best workout in the past year or two and I honestly felt like a combination of Superman and Godzilla. But shortly after my workout things started to go south real fast. I was sitting down doing some homework when I noticed that my heart was still beating very fast, as if I was still lifting or running on a treadmill. I stood up to go get a drink and when I stood up I felt as if I just stepped off a roller coaster that did 10 flips in a row. Long story short my roommate called our schools public safety and they called in an ambulance to take me to a hospital (while in the ambulance not only did I think I was going to die but I literally thought my heart was going to explode). I was held there for 7 hours and was told that the ingredients in the supplement had; 1 dehydrated me, 2 drove my potassium levels dangerously low (I had 2 bags of liquid potassium put into me through IV) and 3 the 1-3 dimethyl whatever its called acted as a methamphetamine in my body and they said I was on the equivalent of crystal meth. Now I understand that everyone is different and not everyone will probably react to this the way I did but the fact that I've taken supplements with the 1-3 dimethyl in it and never had anything like this happen to me is pretty damn scary. Also the place I bought it from the guy there told me a kid bought some at his other store and the same thing happened to him, he had a real bad anxiety/panic attack and thought he was having a heart attack and had to go the hospital. So in closing, if you want to role the dice with this stuff go ahead but don't be surprised if a little while after you take it you find yourself calling 911 and telling them you think your heart is about to explode in your chest.
Caused Massive Anxiety/panic Attack
Rushed To Hospital
Have Heard Of Others Go To The Hospital While On This
That's bad man. If I were you I'd contact Blackstone on this issue. If they back up their product, hopefully they might give you some swag or even better, pay your hospital bill for the inconvenience. IMO.
I put it at 9 effectiveness because up until I went to the hospital it seemed like a great product, it does do what it says it does and thats get you ridiculously jacked up, and I know that what happened to me most likely won't happen to everyone who tries it. And it could've been the whole tolerance thing but like I said above I had been on other products with 1-3 in them and I started out with 1 scoop on those as well and nothing ever happened. Also my resting heart rate before I got into the ambulance was around 150, a bit high for a RESTING heart rate
I gave you a plus rep but I agree with lava on being confused with the scores but I know exactly how you feel.
one day I took the original Hyde with 1,3 and I had a massive anxiety attack on my way home from the gym. I had to pull over and slam on my breaks because I thought I was going to die.
I dont fully blame it on the products as I did abuse it. I work out 10 days strait sometimes and along with added stress from work, college, rent, gorls, etc I guess it all added up and Hyde was the breaking point that day.
im just curious if you went over the recommended dosage or took it everyday without any days off. The electrolyte imbalance and dehydration could have and should have been avoided by proper precautions but thanks for the warning.
Im sorry this happened to you, but im happy im not the only weirdo who has had a bad experience like this.
This all happened on the very first day I tried this so I can promise you it was not from abusing it as besides it being my first day I took about 3/4 of a full scoop. Again I've been on many other products with 1-3, such as the original jack3d and even hyde, and took 1 full scoop on the first day with those and nothing on this scale ever happened to me. I'm just trying to let people know what this stuff has the potential to do to you.
No problem. I can certainly understand your thinking on alerting people of your experience via a review but generally it's not a good idea to check off the "I finished a tub" box just to post a review. Not ragging on you and I'm not absolutely sure of the rules. However, I'm pretty sure that only taking 1 serving isn't enough to write a review. I'll defer to others on this.
Not a problem Ill clear it up. So when I first said I liked it I was talking in terms of before I got hit with the side effects about an hour after I finished working out. Before I felt the side effects I thought I found the new jack3d or something. But then a couple minutes later everything went south and then I completely changed my outlook on it.
After countless tubs of Jack3d and Superpump 250, I was happy to try a new product.with other products i have to use 2 or more servings, with this 1 is just enough. to have that high intensity workout that everyone plans on having. The energy I get from Angle Dust is the cleanest energy I have ever experienced.My strength has steadily increased in all my lifts while on Angle dust. Overall, I would strongly recommend it.
I saw your intro post saying you're new at this and trying to figure it all out. Here's a little bit of advice to insure your reviews get positive reps going forward rather than negatives like this one:
Take a minute to look through the reviews on the home page that have the highest number of positive reps. Structure yours along those lines. Instead of just a few lines that make sense to you, take a little time to describe your experience with the product in detail.
The people who frequent this site and use it as a resource like to get a well rounded perspective of what a product did or didn't do for someone. Sure, some don't need to be overly long - believe me, I'm the worst offender when it comes to writing overly long reviews - but it should be thorough and touch upon relevant points that others can benefit from.
I've tried a few different pre-workouts and Angel Dust has become my new favorite. I started with Jack3d in the newer generation of pre workouts which I loved. This has similar ingredients to the old formula Jack3d but I feel the effects with only one scoop, rather than needing 2 to 3 scoops. My last few tubs of Jack3d actually seemed less effective than when I 1st started, even with almost 1yr off of pre-workouts. Im not one that abuses stim formulas even tho I like to use them. I reported using Presurge and feeling nothing with 2 scoops and feeling like near death with 3 scoops. The lesser the better for me, as long as I can feel effects.
Within 10 mins of taking Angel Dust, I feel the effects. I get the tingle/itch that many others know about from these supps. You're supposed to take it within 30 mins of working out but sometimes Im lazy to leave the house so early (5am workouts), but Im definitely awake.
I usually get there within 30-60 mins of taking it. Even if I get there 60 mins later I feel alert and get into a zone when training. I do feel the boost in mental focus and the energy is clean. I usually am able to push through my 5x5 much easier when using this. Squatting 3x a week can be rough and this has helped tremendously. The normal bodybuilding type workouts seem much easier in comparison at times. I can usually work at a faster pace and I'm sweating like a beast. I usually have enough energy left to do 30-45 mins of cardio and stretching. I don't notice any real crash later in the afternoon from it.
I can say I've been extremely pleased with this supplement. It's been easy to take the lemon flavor that I have and it doesn't need a ton of water like Presurge(which I hated). The only issue would be the price which may deter some, If you factor in that you may need 3 scoops of some other products then it evens out or may actually save you money. If you use lesser servings of other products then it may not be as cost effective for the average consumer.
I still would say its worth a try. For someone on a 5x5 it will last a long time (2.5 months) with one bottle, using the recommended 1 scoop serving. Its a top notch product to me based on my cost/use scenario but I took into account how it may play out for other people, especially a stim junkie who may exercise on PWOs 5-6 days a week.
