War's New Snooze Juice
After seeing the reviews for the new G8 pour in, I figured this was as good a time as any to drop my own impression of this tasty snooze juice.
First, I gotta give a big time shout out to Montego, snagency, and Finaflex for once again hooking me up with some nice goodies. The new G8, of course, being one of them.
Anyone who had tried the original G8 could immediately interpret that the new G8 is very similar in terms of purpose and ingredient profile. It is specially formulated to promote better more restful sleep and improvement. However there are some key differences. These key differences include a reduction in dosage per serving, the exclusion of L-dopa, more servings per tub, and improved taste. I will get into more detail later in the review.
Now for the specifics..
Taste (9): For those who've read mine and the others' reviews on the original G8, the putrid taste of the lemon freeze was an immediate complaint. Needless to say, that is the first thing that was in need of improvement. Luckily, the boys at Finaflex decided to take action. The result, a tastier more satisfying lemon freeze flavor which will leave a sweet, tangy taste in your mouth. In short, the new G8 taste way better than the original.
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) 50mg
Vitamin B-6 (Pyridoxine Acid) 5mg
HGH Elevate-Restore-Recover Matrix 3,000mg
4-amino_3-phenyl-butyric acid, 4-aminobutanoic acid, L-arginine, L-Glutamine
Mood Elevator Blend 812.5
L-Phenethylamine HCI, L-Tyrosine, 4-(pyridine-3-carbonylamino) butanoic acid,2-amino-3-(5-hydroxy-1H-indol-3-yl) propanoic acid
If you've used the original G8, or have read reviews on it, you would notice that the ingredients themselves are virtually similar in this new version.
However, there are two major differences.
The first one is the reduced dosage per serving. A common complaint with the original version was that it was overdosed, causing sleep hangovers and morning grogginess. In response, Finaflex halved the dosage per serving, but also increased the number of servings per tub from 20 to 40.
The second difference is the exclusion of L-dopa. Originally, I believed that the exclusion had something to do with the overdosing or was partly responsible for the side effects. Nonetheless, Montego and snagency made it clear that the exclusion was an FDA-warranted action done to avoid and conflicts with G8's release. Evidently, L-dopa has come under fire.
Despite these differences, the profile is still quite effective at promoting sleep an relaxation.
Usage: With the dosage quantities halved, one scoop is intended to suffice for most users seeking a restful sleep without the hangovers. For bigger individuals who actually responded well to the higher doses of the original G8, such as myself, I found that two scoops before bed was the more effective dosage. Similar to the original, I experienced no side effects like hangovers or grogginess the following morning.
Effectiveness (8.5): I will be using Finaflex's patented rating scale for this section as I did with the original products.
1. Strongly disagree
5. Strongly agree
1. This Product Helped Me Fall Asleep -(5)
Two scoops of new G8 and I peacefully and gradually drifted off into dreamland lol I especially likes how I was more calmed into sleep as opposed to just knocked out as the original G8 did.
2. This Product Provided deep, restful sleep- (5)
Absolutely; I slept like a baby on this snooze juice and woke up more refreshed and ready to destroy the iron.
3. This Product Enhanced my Recovery- (4)
A deep restful sleep is the epitome of recovery for us athletes. Therefore, by enhancing my sleep quality, I was able to recover from my workout more efficiently. Of course, the recovery ingredients from other supps I had been using also came into play, so all credit cannot be given solely to G8.
4. This Product helped Me Relax - (4)
I did experience a more calmed state of mind and general overall less stressed feeling when using G8. Therefore, I will give points here.
5. I really enjoyed this product and would recommend it to friends and family - (5)
I would definitely recommend it over the original to avoid the side effects of the overdosing. In addition, i would recommend it simply because it was highly effective at promoting sleep and improving recovery and state of mind. Personally, I think one scoop would suffice just fine for a majority of the people I know.
Side Effects: Vamp, Pudgusky, and Guru all mentioned that they experienced sleep hangovers on occasion even with the reduced dosage profile. I myself, even at two scoops, experienced no such sides. Sleep hangovers, morning grogginess, or zombie-like sluggishness were never experienced by me. Needless to say, I tolerated the ingredients very well.
Value (8): The average price for the new G8 is about 28-30 dollars for 40 servings. Since most individuals will settle for only one scoop, that is a great deal for 40 servings of a highly effective product. For those of us who need a little more than one scoop, I still think the price is reasonable for the efficacy.
Overall (8.5): The new G8 is without a doubt a superb improvement over the original in taste, efficacy, and absence of side effects (for most of us). I would definitely recommend it to anyone seeking an effective sleep aid for a good price. My only grievance is that I wish it still L-dopa.
