Introduction

I would like to thank Olympus Labs once again for giving me another opportunity to review one of their supplements. This time its Test1fy a natural testosterone booster that helps optimize test production. I have a low T score for my age so I've tried & reviewed many other test boosters in the past.

Introduction

I would like to thank Olympus Labs once again for giving me another opportunity to review one of their supplements. This time its Test1fy a natural testosterone booster that helps optimize test production. I have a low T score for my age so I've tried & reviewed many other test boosters in the past. The combination of ingredients and dosages drew me to give this product a review. I stacked Test1fy with another Olympus Labs supplement - Massacre to give me a solid lean bulk stack.

Ingredient Profile

The ingredient profile is transparent and features six main test boosting ingredients. Ingredients in order:

Vitamin D 3,332 IU

Anacyclus Pyrethrum Extract (Root) 3,200mg - An Aphrodisiac herb widely used in Ayurveda to improve vitality: Research has shown this ingredient to be a solid libido booster. http://www.scipharm.at/download.asp?id=346

KSM-66 Ashwagandha Extract 675mg - Another Ayurvedic herb: Helps improve semen quality by increasing serum levels of Luteinizing Hormone (LH) all while reducing cortisol levels.

LJ100 100mg - Verified 100:1 standardization of Longjack - Used to increase male virility. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11693547

Pine Bark Extract 103mg - Used as an AI Inhibitor - helping prevent testosterone from turning into estrogen.

Mucuna Pruriens P.E. 500mg - Cortisol reducer all while increasing the luteinizing hormone and t levels. https://www.fertstert.org/article/S0015-0282%2808%2903935-6/fulltext

Boron (from Albion boroganic glycine) 6mg - Boron impacts the body's usage of estrogen/testosterone. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4712861/

Bioperine 10mg - Absorption Optimizer

Taste/Mixability/Dosing

Dosing - One serving (8) capsules taken with largest meal of the day - for me that was dinner.

Effectiveness

In terms of effectiveness Test1fy was one of the better natural t boosters I've taken. Now some effects could coincide with the stack of Massacr3 however I'm confident that even without that addition I'd get the same effectiveness in these areas: First n Foremost the big effect was the Alpha Male Mentality. My confidence sky rocketed in/out of the gym. Going into a workout I knew I was going to hit every rep n/ set with more in the tank. Along that note my t levels did increase - noticeable from increased acne - sexual prowess/more erections something my wife noticed. Next was increased strength/muscle now some of this could be from the stack I was using but I did set PRs in the Big 3 lifts. I was able to go heavier with accessory lifts which were meant for more for muscle mass. So I got the best of both worlds from Test1fy.

Value

The cheapest value I could find was at bestpricenutrition.com for $44.99: Each bottle contains 240 capsules - 8 capsules per serving - 30 total servings. At a price of around $1.50 per serving this is comparable to similar t boosting supplements. I'd have no problem paying this price but if you do some searching I'm sure you can find a deal or two down the road.

Side Effects

Increased Acne but you'r going to get that with an effective test booster

Conclusion

In conclusion Olympus Labs Test1fy is a solid top notch test booster. With proven/backed ingredients you'll definitely see results... just make sure your diet & training are in check first before using any supplement. I recommend this product if your on the lookout for a quality test booster - just be on the lookout for deals to get a lower price. Thanks again to Olympus Labs for participating in the SR TROOP Program.

Amino acids have been soaring in popularity over the last decade. Energy, Stimulant, Nootropic pick me up products have recently become the next big hit over the recent years. So why not put them both together and see what happens

Introduction

Optimum Nutrition, A staple company in the industry for years on end. ON is one of the few brands known by lifters and non lifters alike. ON has always held a reputation for bringing out quality products and great taste. With the sudden popularity of energy and stimulants ON has brought forth their version of a "Pick me Up" drink that can be sipped throughout the day with the benefit of Essential Amino Acids to help with muscle recovery, focus and energy.

Ingredient Profile

Each serving size is 2 scoops (9grams)
When you break down the 9gram serving there are 57% active ingredients listed below and 43% colors, additions and artificial flavors. On paper 57% actives are quite low for an Amino Acid supplement, I like to see the actives at least 70-80% but on the flip side you can expect a great tasting drink.

"Amino Blend" 5 Grams
All Micronized Taurine, Glutamine, Arginine, Leucine, Beta Alanine, citrulline, Isoleucine, Valine, Tyrosine, Histidine, Lysine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Methionine.

"Energy Blend" 160mg
Caffiene, Green Tea Extract, Green Coffee Extract.

Taste/Mixability/Dosing

Taste: Dont expect anything less then what you are used to with ON, the flavors are good and with the wide range of available flavors including their cafe series you will easily find one you love.
Mixability: all the active ingredients are micronized, there will be little to no trouble having this dissolve in water, i have been able to mix this simply with a spoon without too much vigor so a Shaker bottle is not necessarily needed.
Dosing: This is where i tend to have the largest concerns. The 5g of Aminos are under a proprietary blend so we cant know exactly what doses we are getting of any amino. So at first glance i would have to assume that this is a little under dosed.

Effectiveness

This area took me a while to wrap my head around. Please understand that the Proprietary blending is not inherently wrong and until just a few years ago the majority of supplements were prop blends but without knowing the exact doses I am a little confused at what I can use this product for.
As a pre-workout there are too many ingredients missing and you dont know the ratio of stimulants you're getting
As an Amino supplement it is hard to determine if there are enough active ingredients to support Muscle recovery, protein synthesis or endurance.
What i will say though is that as a general "pick me up" it is great, This is obviously dependent on each individuals caffeine tolerance, but having it in the morning or when the mid day blues kick in, it works just fine with giving you a subtle kick of energy. I enjoy the cafe series and add 1 or 2 scoops to my morning coffee instead of any sweeteners or creamers.
With the above said though I do not look to This product as my daily EAA supplement so the 5 grams are irrelevant, i use this strictly as a pick me up.

Value

Now Value is why this product is not rated as low as my review might suggest it should be.
ON EA Energy ranges from $14.99 - $26.99 here in the Canadian market, Also depending on how much caffeine you want and knowing that this may not be the ideal Amino Acid supplement then 1 or 2 scoop servings are fine. At the labelled 2 scoop serving and if i take the mid level price listed ($19.99) you are at $0.33cents per 1 scoop serve or $0.66cents per 2 scoop serve.
This is extremely cheap for either a caffeine or Amino source.

Side Effects

Nothing bothered my here. The Caffeine wasnt so high that i needed a buffer or ingredients to keep the risk of crashing away.

Conclusion

The Product for me is fine as long as you know what you are using it for. Personally The Aminos are not the primary use. I use this strictly as a subtle and great tasting caffeine source that isnt too high that could result in sweats or jitters. It is just enough, similar to a daily or morning coffee and cheaper than a cup of coffee too.

Quick Summary

From the brand:

Dymatize Elite Casein helps keep your muscles supplied with a steady stream of amino acids, the building blocks of muscle. This helps avoid the catabolic state of muscle protein breakdown that begins to happen when your muscles are deprived of the right nutrients. Casein is a unique protein derived from milk that breaks down slowly in your digestive system, keeping you fuller longer and providing a sustained release of muscle-building amino acids. This makes casein the ideal choice any time your body goes without protein for an extended period, especially just before bedtime.

Introduction

Hello all. Full intro about myself can be found here in the forum: https://supplementreviews.com/forum/index.php?topic=35432.0

First off, thank you to Dymatize for participating in the SR.com TROOPer program and making this product available for us to try and review. For those unfamiliar, casein proteins absorb much slower than whey proteins, allowing for a longer-term release of amino acids into the bloodstream. Dymatize is known for their high-quality ISO 100 and Elite Whey proteins but their casein seems to fly under the radar in my opinion. Let's see how this tub went for me and if it deserves the same acclaim as the others.

Ingredient Profile

As you would expect from a single source protein powder, the ingredient profile is pretty straight-forward here. Your first ingredient and the vast majority of each scoop is micellar casein. A brief description of this protein found from doing a Google search is: Casein protein is the protein found in the curds of milk and is slowly absorbed by the body. This contrasts to the most popular supplement on the sports nutrition market, whey protein, which is used for its fast absorption rate. Casein has earned the name 'the bedtime protein because it is most commonly consumed before sleep to provide the body with a slow releasing source of protein over an extended period of time.

The benefits of casein can be summed up with: Supplementing with casein just before going to sleep, it can be absorbed throughout the night, benefiting the body's needs for protein synthesis over the 6-8 hours of rest. When you are asleep you are not ingesting food or protein. By supplementing with casein before bed, you will have protein in your system throughout the night to increase protein synthesis and help increase muscle growth. This can be beneficial to anyone who is training regularly.

Casein protein ingestion before sleep has been proven to result in an increase in protein synthesis after a workout. Casein protein is also higher in calcium contents and can be a good source of fat loss. If you are an individual who engages in long, strenuous workouts then casein supplementation can be very beneficial for your caloric needs.

The slow absorption makes casein great for night time ingestion. A study done by Snijders et al. (2015) demonstrated that post-resistance training gains in muscle mass and strength are shown to be further increased after daily supplementation with 27.5 g of dietary casein protein consumed prior to sleep. Casein supplementation can further augment the skeletal muscle adaptive response to prolonged resistance training.

Outside of the protein, the remaining amount of each scoop is made up of the fillers which include the flavoring, thickeners and artificial sweeteners. Pretty standard stuff for any type of protein powder; whey, casein or a blend.

As for the macros, those may vary slightly depending on the flavor that you choose. Per scoop will yield you around 130 calories with one and a half grams of fat, three grams of carbs (zero sugar) and 25 grams of protein. The scoop size will also vary slightly based on the flavor but the protein content by weight is around 70-75% for this protein. Another large brand that makes a casein protein similar to this also has a protein content of around 70-75% per scoop. In the end, you are getting your serving of casein protein along with the ingredients to make it taste good. Most people do not want a plain unflavored protein powder, so Dymatize must add those extras for the consumers to enjoy the product with hopes they keep coming back for more.

Taste/Mixability/Dosing

Taste >> This product is available in four flavors: cinnamon bun, cookies and cream, rich chocolate and smooth vanilla. I was sent the cinnamon bun flavor and loved it! Personally, I love cinnamon and go through quite a lot of it each week. The taste of this protein nailed the cinnamon aspect with the added sweetness you would expect from the rest of the cinnamon roll and icing. No complaints here and I would probably not even bother with the other flavors currently available because this one is so good.

Mixability >> For anyone new to taking a casein protein, don't expect the mixability to be the same as whey. Casein mixes much thicker and often requires more water and arm work to achieve the desired consistency. While most whey proteins can be mixed in a blender bottle without the blender ball, I would recommend using the blender ball when making a casein shake for the best results. Yes, you can get everything mixed decently well without the blender ball if you use a good amount of water but for the smoothest shake without the risk of little clumps; use the blender ball. I did for every shake that I made and each one came out perfect, no surprises. Please note that my shakes were always made with water and using milk or a milk-alternative may produce different results.

Dosing >> Per the label, mix one scoop with 10-12 ounces of your favorite beverage. For optimum results, drink in the evening before bed, in place of small meals, or any other time when steady amino release is desired.

Effectiveness

As with any protein product, the effectiveness is going to depend on the individual, how they used the supplement and what their goals are. Personally, this product excelled in the two ways that I used it. The first was when I knew there was going to be a big gap between meals and I needed long lasting energy. Depending on my schedule, I would mix one to two scoops of this protein and drink before my plans. This would keep me full and provided energy without any additional food intake for up to eight hours without any stomach pain or other problems. I did not need to focus on or think about food during this time and my full attention would be with the task at hand.

The second way I used this protein was as it is normally suggested, before bed. If I had some extra protein macros at the end of the night, this was a perfect before bed snack to tide me over. No problems with digestion during the night and I would not wake up the next morning with hunger pains or the feeling that I needed to eat right away. With the sweet taste, this product was also effective at knocking out any sweet tooth craving that I would have after dinner. Instead of reaching for candy, ice cream or a baked cinnamon roll; a scoop or two of this worked out perfectly.

In terms of building muscle or losing fat while using this product; those aspects are determined by many other factors in a person's life and no protein supplement should make or break one's progress. Did this product help me build muscle? Possibly, or at least it helped me maintain my current muscle mass because it helped make sure my protein intake was met each day. Did this product help me lose fat? Again, possibly or at the very least it helped me maintain my current status. I could also make a case that it was effective at keeping me from gaining weight because it replaced unhealthier sweet snacks at night that are just full of sugar, fat and carbs with little to no protein.

Value

This product comes in multiple flavors and two tub sizes. The smallest size is a two-pound tub that can be found online for around $27 at the current time (AllStarHealth.com). This size tub gets you about 26 servings. As with most proteins, the flavor can sometimes change the price and/or be on a special discount. The other size available is a four-pound tub, which the same website currently has listed for $45. This size tub gets you about 51 servings. If you want a specific flavor, you may have to pay a little bit more at a specific retailer if the lowest cost one is out of stock or does not carry the flavor you want.

**Please also note that Dymatize recently went through a re-branding of their products and some products with the older labeling and possibly different formulas/ingredients are still on the market. The older packaging used black containers while the newest products are white and blue. As retailers work to clear out the inventory of the older label products, you may be able to find an excellent clearance deal on those. Just pay attention to the listed best by dates for the previous versions.

Side Effects

None experienced. While casein does not digest as quickly as whey, I did not experience any stomach issues while taking it. There are very few carbs and no sugar listed for each scoop, so I can only assume the lactose content is low or non-existent.

Conclusion

In the end, Dymatize's Elite Casein turned out to be everything I would hope and look for with this type of protein. The flavor was great and something I could drink on a continual basis. I do hope they come out with some more exotic flavors in the future to compete with the other big brands in this category. Only four flavors does not leave much room for change. The effectiveness in the two ways that I used this product was as expected and helped me achieve the desired outcome I was looking for. The price is in-line with the current market for casein protein from the big, reputable brands. With no negative side effects experienced; overall, we have winner with this product if you are looking into supplementing with casein protein. Once again thank you to Dymatize for sending a tub out to me for this review.

Thank you for reading my review and let me know if you have any questions.

Introduction

A special thanks to Flex Nutrition for their continued participation here on SR.com. Also, an apology for the tardiness of this review. Today, I discuss my experience with their multivitamin, Mega Multi. Like many others, a multivitamin is a basic staple in my general supplement and dietary regimen. Multivitamins can help ensure your daily micro quotas are in check. Of course, as both me and other s would advocate, always make sure you're getting what you need primarily through your main diet.

Ingredient Profile

As with all multivitamins, the profile is quite extensive and long. Therefore, instead of listing the ingredients and dosages, I have included an image for breakdown and listing of the ingredients. So, please refer to it for a reference to the profile.

Mega Multi contains sufficient amounts of all the essential vitamins and minerals needed as outlined by a basic dietary intake value. It is well dosed for the most part, but there are some main ingredients I would like to see higher. For example, rather than only 400 IU of vitamin D, I would prefer at least 1 full gram since vitamin D has several functions in the body and should be dosed higher to meet demands. I would also like higher doses of the vitamin E and vitamin C. Also, there is no vitamin K, which is a bit of a downer considering this is supposed to be a multivitamin supplement and you'd expect all general vitamins to be present. However, setting those aside, the main vitamin profile is sufficient enough.

I like how Mega Multi uses chelated forms of most of the minerals. Chelated forms of minerals are more favorably absorbed and bioavailable. I would like to see the magnesium dosed higher though.

Mega Multi also has some bonuses such as citrus bioflavonoids for additional immunity support. Others such as choline bitartrate are added for increased brain health support and nootropic benefits. There are others for increased general health support, but again, please refer to the included image for a complete breakdown of the profile.

I would prefer the addition of some digestive enzymes and probiotics as additional bonuses, but this is not mandatory.

Dosing

You only require one capsule a day with food, making dosing a breeze. I took one cap first thing in the morning with breakfast. The caps are a little on the large size, but not horse pill size.

Effectiveness

You don't necessarily "feel" a multivitamin take effect as it's benefits stem from your body's general state of health. I mainly gauige efficacy on how I believe it aided my health and helped act as a micronutrient insurance policy.

While using Mega Multi, the convenience of having to take only one vitamin capsule was a great and easy way to make sure I was getting all the necessary vitamins and minerals each in conjunction with my dietary food intake.

I never fell ill and I did feel a little more naturally energetic while on Mega Multi. Therefore, I can say that is did help give my immune system somewhat of a boost and supported better natural energy levels. I also had some improvement in focus thanks to the choline, but nothing spectacular in this sense.

Not much more I can say instead of I was not experiencing any of the signs or symptoms ( i.e low energy, difficulty concentrating, impaired immunity) of certain vitamin or mineral deficiencies. As a result, I can say that the all the nutrients were properly absorbed and bioavailable.

Value

At only 20 dollars for a two month supply provided in each bottle, this is a fantastic price. Many of today's multivitamins will often provide only a one month supply at similar or even higher prices. Given Mega Multi's efficacy and supply in each bottle, 20 dollars is more than a reasonable value and well worth the investment.

Side Effects

none

Conclusion

At a great price with a sufficient profile, Mega Multi is a very good general staple to have on hand for health support and to keep your micro-nutrient intake on point. Again, be sure your nutrients are coming mostly and primarily from your dietary food intake.

    Introduction

    Big thanks to start to Redcon1. I'm someone who often has trouble sleeping and is always hesitant to take sleep supplements because I rarely hit 8 hours a night and worry about sleeping to deeply to wake up if something goes bang in the night. But after my wife started giving me crap for "never" sleeping, Redcon1 released this to the troops and I had the opportunity to kill two birds with one stone: appease the old lady and try another product from one of my favorite companies.

    A quick note on Redcon1's customer service first. When this arrived, the package had been crushed in the mail and then left in the rain for a couple days due to arriving while I was on vacation. I sent a note to the rep and a replacement arrived in like 3 days or so. To add a little context, about a month earlier I'd ordered some protein from MyProtein and the bag was somehow sliced open in the mail. It took MP about 21 days to replace that. To fanboy on them even more, they have hands down the best communication in the industry. You get emails at every step of the shipping progress, plus they care enough to follow up and ask for your feedback. I've also gotten texts from their local rep to notify me about deals happening. Altogether they just seem to have their S together better than most, if not any, other companies in the business.

    Ingredient Profile

    4-amino-3-phenylbutonic acid (1g) - [AKA Phenibut] This is a key ingredient to Fade Out and also one to be very careful with. It can become dangerous when combined with benzos, barbituates, alcohol, or other depressants. Phenibut works by stimulating GABA receptors and enhances the effects of GABA itself.

    Mucuna Pruriens (1g) - [AKA Velvet Bean] This ingredient contains high levels of L-Dopa, the precursor to dopamine. At higher doses it can actually aid in testosterone production and have an energizing effect, but my guess here at this dose is that it is meant for its ability to lower cortisol (stress hormone) levels.

    GABA (1g) - GABA and Phenibut go hand and hand. Your body already contains GABA receptors that essentially make you sleep when activated, and phenibut serves as an agonist for GABA by binding to GABA receptors and acting as a catalyst of sorts for the depressant effects of the GABA itself.

    Arginine-HCL (1g) - Arginine can help stimulate sleep by shutting off ammonia production in the body.

    Phenylalanine (750mg) - Phenylalanine is converted to L-Tyrosine which is then converted to L-Dopa, again the precursor to Dopamine.

    Valerian Root (600mg) - Another sedative and anti-anxiety ingredient

    Ornithine HCL (500mg) - Like Arginine, this also helps in the reduction of ammonia being produced in the body. Ammonia is one of the biggest sleep disrupters.

    Theanine (500mg) - Often seen in preworkouts, this is another ingredient that can also be used for its relaxing effects which is why it's often found in tandem with high amounts of caffeine.

    Magnesium (150mg) - Without magnesium in your body you'd seize up into one big cramp. This will help your muscles relax and ultimately reduce muscle soreness and aid in providing deeper sleep.

    Vitamin C (100mg) - This may not be an ingredient you think of when it comes to sleeping, but the big concern is really the lack of it rather than the benefit it has. People with low vitamin-c levels can have trouble falling into a deep relaxing sleep and supplementing the diet can change that, as well as reducing other symptoms of wakefulness like restless leg syndrome.

    Zinc (10mg) - Studies have shown zinc to be an effective sleep regulator. It has been shown to increase the amount and the quality of sleep in both animals and humans.

    Vitamin B-6 (6mg) - This can help regulate the body's levels of tryptophan, which can in turn lead to your body producing sleep-inducing melatonin

    Melatonin (5mg) - This is probably the most commonly known natural sleep aid, and 5mg is a pretty big dose. I was worried about not waking up easily with this much melatonin.

    Vitamin E Acetate (10iu) - Vitamin E might also help relieve restless leg syndrome.

    Overall this is an incredibly well-rounded ingredient panel. Everything is very obvious in its intent and Redcon1 seemed to take the care to produce Fade Out in a way that would attack symptoms that would lead to restless sleep from multiple angles using ingredients that would hit your mind at different times and in different ways throughout the night.

    Taste/Mixability/Dosing

    Dosing: I really didn't need to take a full scoop of this for it to work. I'd usually take slightly less if I was about to get less sleep, and a full scoop if I knew I'd be able to get 8 hours.

    Mixability: This had some settling occur each time, so expect to drink it while particles are suspended in the liquid.

    Taste: Think... metamucil. I received the orange flavor and while it was by no means objectionable, it wasn't something I'd ever crave either. It covered up the taste of a bunch of ingredients that I assume must be yucky tasting, and I never had to plug my nose to get it down. It was just "fine".

    Effectiveness

    I would have given this product a 10 if I had more experience with sleep products in general. I just can't imagine something working better than this. I didn't always use a full scoop and the only thing that seemed to impact would be how deeply I slept. Within 5 minutes of taking this I'd always feel sort of woozy, calm, and a bit lightheaded-- but not at all in an unpleasant way. I'd be completely relaxed and overall felt great. I wouldn't fall asleep the second my head hit the pillow, but I also didn't spend hours tossing and turning, or waking up throughout the night like I usually do.

    One of the biggest perks for me was the fact that I could still wake up if I had to. A few nights I was woken up by my son, another night my wife woke me up because she thought she heard something, and each time I was able to wake up and inspect then go right back to sleep without issue. I could remember what I'd done in the middle of the night upon waking, and I didn't have any memory or time loss.

    In the morning I almost never had any cobwebs. I often took this when I knew I'd only be getting 4-6 hours of sleep and still it was always better to wake up having taken it than having not taken it. Mind you, I was careful about not taking a full scoop if it was going to be less than 8 hours.

    Value

    The cheapest I was able to find this was $25.99 at Muscle & Strength. For less than $1/serving this product is a steal. On the high end it's listed at $49.99. I would have a hard time justifying paying that price, personally.

    Side Effects

    None.

    Conclusion

    If you want to fall asleep fast and stay asleep until you're ready to wake up, or wake up abruptly on command, then I'd say this is for you. If that doesn't apply to you, I think you're an alien or something and I don't know what to tell you. This is something I think anyone in need of a better night's rest should give a shot. Simple as that.

    Thank you again to Redcon1 as always!

    Quick Summary

    European Pre workout that packs quite a punch!

    Introduction

    At 34 years old, I am often intrigued by the different supplements that are out there in the world. While looking around some German lifting sights, I came across an ad for T1 Virus. At first I thought it was very gimmicky, then I did some research on the product and found that it seemed pretty decent. I then found the best place to order and a few weeks later, I got my shipment from a nice supplement company in Germany. Now to the review, I hope you enjoy.

I then found the best place to order and a few weeks later, I got my shipment from a nice supplement company in Germany. Now to the review, I hope you enjoy.

    If you notice the "Polyhydrate" behind the ingredients. Polyhydrate is something GN Labs created that protects from gastric acid destruction.

    Taste/Mixability/Dosing

    Taste:
    I unfortunately chose the flavor Lemon Cola. It is definitely a unique flavor. Reminds me of a Ricola Cough drop. It isn't a horrible flavor, it is just different.

    Mixability:
    The product itself was harder than a brick bat in the container. I assume this is because it took a journey from Frankfurt Germany to Western Kentucky. I took it all out and softened it back up. After it was broken up, the product mixed well in my 20 ounce shaker bottle. There was no residue in the bottom of the cup once I was finished.

    Dosing:
    The dosing was pretty straightforward. One serving 15-30 minutes prior to training. The serving size is 3 scoops. The scoops are pretty small so when you first use it, you don't think you are getting enough product.

    Effectiveness

    8.5/10
    This product is a sleeper cell waiting to attack. It does not hit you as some products does and makes you attack the weights right out of the gate. It creeps up on you and gradually makes you feel like a beast. The first workout I had with T1, I was doing upper body. I completed my normal routine without a hiccup. I noticed I still had energy to go so I did some dips. I was able to complete 4 sets of 10 dips without full fatigue! I followed that off with Pushups and again, stamina for days. Not only was my first workout strong, but it continued until the bottle was empty. I was completely satisfied with this product. Leg day was not even a challenge anymore when I am supplementing with this. I am focused and I feel confident in my lifts.

    Value

    7.5/10
    The price of this product varies between 40 and 50 dollars depending on where you purchase it. I was able to find it for around 42 dollars(US) which was close to 2.50 per serving. That may seem High for 17 servings, but if you take into consideration the results you achieve, it is worth it in my opinion. Keep in mind also I lift 4 days per week and have one cardio day. I don't use pre-workout on cardio days, so that bottle lasts the month.

    Side Effects

    I experienced no negative side effects while taking this product.

    Conclusion

    Overall----8.0/10
    T1 virus is one of the strongest products I have tried as far as a Preworkout. The ingredients seem to work extremely well together to get you through the hardest workouts. I have ordered more of this as well as the non stim "anti Virus". If you are able to get online and purchase this, I would highly recommend it. It was a bit gimmicky if you watch the adverts for it online, but they were not kidding around when they talk about how strong it is.

    1g of optimizers (Not sure exactly what this does)

    Other than that it is a very basic ingredient profile. sucralose for the sweetner and no artificial dyes. Instead they use beet extract.

    Taste/Mixability/Dosing

    I got the fruit punch flavor and it was extremely good! Just one scoop of this mixed into some water or.... if you are crazy like me straight to the mouth and wash it down with water. I always took this after every one of my workouts. To me it makes more sense to take it after a workout that way when the muscles are exhausted and are looking for nutrients etc this will absorb better... but that's just my thinking.

    Effectiveness

    This product was extremely effective. i do not respond to just creatine mono...learned that the hard way sadly. So a product that contains all of these different forms of creatine is much more beneficial... i definitely did see more size and strength gains. nothing ridiculous and i did experience a very very small water retention but nothing that i freaked out about. i did forget to take it a few times and did notice a little water loss but i also think it was because my eating has not been the best. Sometimes I would wake up flat and others with some size.... diet has been all over lately.

    Value

    Tiger fitness has it at $15.99 for 60 servings which to me is a steal!

    Side Effects

    only side effect that i got was upset stomach every now and then after taking it. But nothing serious.

    Conclusion

    To me this product is up on my buy forever list! I loved the gains that I got from it and how much it actually helped me out. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone out there that does not see results with just regular creatine mono. some people might get upset stomachs so i would watch out on that part. Other than that lift and grind it out!

    Introduction

    Hey SR team. Redweilerfan here with another favorite type of review; namely that of a test booster. Today I will discuss my experience with Barracuda from Marc Lobliners MTS Nutrition. But before anything else, I want to give a massive shout out and a huge thanks to Clipper for sending me this product within the frame work of the old Bounty Program to try out. As a European Trooper, with basically no possibilities to participate in the ordinary TROOPER program, this sure was a blessing. So, thank you for the opportunity, it's much appreciated.

    Okay, so a few words on me before we hit the review itself. I'm 42 and have been involved in body building for a long time. As age has sneakily crept up on me, I have realized that building lean muscle mass has really become an uphill battle, and I'm more prone to injuries overall. Add to that; an overall sense of my natural testosterone levels going down the last 2 years. Sure, it's a natural process, but that doesn't mean I have to like it! Therefore, enter test boosters! I still work out 4 times a week and I figured that test boosters may provide me with a little edge in my training routine, and perhaps also give me back hints of my "glory days". I have really come to appreciate this category of supplements, although there are many scam companies out there, trying to hook men like me in with fancy labels and outrageous claims. So, therefore I think it is important to actually review products like this here on SR, so that people can get honest and unbiased reviews. For the sake of transparency, I must say that I haven't done any blood work before starting with this product, so I can't say with scientific validation that this actually increased my T-levels. It has to be anecdotal in nature. That said, buckle up guys.

    Ingredient Profile

    This is a powdered test booster and per 1 scoop (8.2 g) you get;

    D-Aspartic acid 3 g
    L-Carnitine l-Tartrate 3 g
    Macapure maca extract (standardized to min 0.6 % macamides & macaenes) 300 mg
    Safed Musli extract (standardized to min 50 % Sapponins) (root) 250 mg
    Eurycoma Longifolia extract (4:1) (root) 200 mg
    Testosurge (Fenugreek extract standardized min 80 % grecunin) (seed) 200 mg
    Black pepper extract (standardized min 98 % piperine) (fruit)

    Okay, so we have a pretty good formula and a transparent label here. Kudos to MTS for that. Let's take a look at the ingredients and what they will do for us;

    DAA: one of the best scientifically validated test boosting ingredients on the market today. DAA is an amino acid that the body can produce itself, that is, it is a non essential amino acid. In some scientific studies DAA in a 3 g dose has been reported to actually increase testosterone levels with up to 42 % and 33 % respectively in resistance trained men. It works by stimulating testosterone production in the testes mainly and a 12 day period of consecutive use seems to be necessary for providing that effect. Of all ingredients currently available on the test boosting market, this is one of the most promising ones, with scientific backing and there is a growing consensus that this ingredient actually works. I usually respond very well to DAA, so kudos for including it here in a full clinical dose.

    LCLT: this ingredient on its own doesn't have much to do with raising testosterone, but it seems to have a positive effect on androgen receptors in the body. Thus, it seems to influence your androgen receptors to be more sensitive to your endogenous free testosterone, and as a consequence, you can benefit more from your already existing testosterone via its increased adhesion to your androgen receptors. Otherwise, LCLT is often used as a fat burner and as an energizer. 3 g seems to be a high dose. This is the first time I have seen this particular ingredient included in a test booster. Interesting approach.

    Maca: a widely popular ingredient nowadays which is an aphrodisiac more than a real test boosting agent. According to Examine.com maca does in fact not raise testosterone at all, but rather works as an aphrodisiac. Clinical dosages are between 1500 to 3000 mg daily, so we have to conclude that the 300 mg dose here is heavily under dosed. I have tried this in 3000 mg daily before and I didn't really benefit anything from it to tell you the truth. But maybe it can work synergistically with the other ingredients here? There are many other health benefits tied to this ingredient, such as stress reduction for example.

    Safed Musli extract: this is an Ayurvedic herb used in Indian traditional medicine as an aphrodisiac and as an ingredient that helps with erectile dysfunction. It has been shown to increase libido and erectile function in animals, mostly rats. However, there is lacking serious human studies on this ingredient, and as a test boosting agent it has been met with much scepticism when it comes to human use. Therefore it is equally hard to assess the 250 mg dose here as clinical or not given the lack of scientific studies in humans. Even so, I don't mind its inclusion here. There seems to exist lots of anecdotal evidence for its purported effects. I'll take it.

    Eurycoma Longifolia extract: often referred to as Longjack, Malaysian ginseng or Tongkat Ali. This is an herb with documented libido enhancing properties in animals, as well as sperm increasing ones. It also appears to have strong anti-estrogenic effects in some in vitro studies. How this relates to human use is not really scientifically validated in any way, especially oral administration of the extract. But overall, this seems promising and I really like its inclusion here in this product. 200 mg seems to be an "okay" dose, with the abovementioned in mind. Again, I'll take it.

    Testosurge: a patented form of Fenugreek, a classic ingredient in almost all test boosters on the market. The scientific evidence of this as a test booster seems to be conflictual to say the least. Some studies has shown an increase of testosterone in resistance trained men, some studies observed no increase at all, and some studies actually has reported a decrease in endogenous testosterone production. This seems to be related to fenugreek stimulating Prolactin, a hormone with estrogenic properties. So, it's hard to know what to make of this ingredient. Also, dosages for increasing testosterone seem to be in the 500-600 mg daily, and with only 200 mg here it seems to be under dosed. It does have a high amount of the active substance grecunin (90 %) so it is not always the total dose that is decisive in the overall scheme of things.

    Black pepper extract: we all recognize this ingredient. It is used for increasing bio availability of the included ingredients. The 5 mg dose is a standardized one and probably effective for what it is included for.

    All in all, a pretty interesting formula, with a few well documented ingredients and some others with less scientific value, but with good anecdotal value nonetheless.

    Taste/Mixability/Dosing

    This is my first encounter with a powdered test booster, since all the others I have tried were in tablet or capsule form. Barracuda comes in 2 flavors; blue raspberry and mango. I went for the mango version since I'm a sucker for tropical flavors. Now, most of us that have tried test boosters know that the taste, even in tablet form, usually is pretty nasty. This is due to all the herbal ingredients, and especially DAA has that sour and pungent flavor to it. So, how did MTS manage to handle this issue? Well, they did a pretty good job all things considered, but the bad taste is still there. It tastes like some version of mango yes, but that sourness and pungent herbal tone is still massive here. Needless to say, I didn't enjoy drinking this, but it wasn't all that bad either. It comes with the territory I guess. I give it a 5 out 10 rating flavor wise. Mixability was not the best, but that was equally expected. Test boosting herbs are not the easiest to mix, but most of the powder was dissolving in water. Some residue landed on the bottom so if you don't drink it right away you will have to shake it again. You can also just put the powder in an ordinary glass of water, stir with a spoon and chug it. MTS recommends 6-8 oz of water and you only need to take one scoop a day. I like that. It is easy and convenient; you just mix it and knock it back, no need to take like 8 tablets a day here. MTS also recommend that you take this with your first meal of the day, or pre workout 30-45 minutes before training.

    Effectiveness

    Did this product work? Overall, I would say YES! But there are some minor issues I want to bring up as well. Let's divide this section into categories;

    Energy: low testosterone often comes with lack of energy and with sluggishness. Such symptoms are usually the first sign of dropping T-levels. This affects men who are training obviously. For me, Barracuda shined in this regard. I felt a big surge of natural energy throughout my use of this product. I wouldn't say that I felt like 20 again, that would be an exaggeration, but I definitely felt alert throughout my day overall. I woke up refreshed and the natural energy helped me out both in the gym and at work when things were hectic. The energy was usable in the gym and gave me a noticeable endurance as well, especially in relation to cardio. I also felt energetic in the late afternoons, and that's a statement since I usually have a drop in energy around 4-5 pm. Like clockwork. But when I was on Barracuda I hardly noticed that at all, maybe like 1 or 2 times. Otherwise I always feel that energy drop, so that was a good effect that proves that the product worked. High energy with this product.

    Libido/sexual health: another reason for many (middle aged) men to resort to test boosters, the drop in libido or other sexual issues that comes naturally with age. This was a pretty odd experience to be honest. First week or so I felt a slight increase in libido. Then for almost 2 weeks I felt basically nothing. That was a disappointment; a big part of the 30 day cycle didn't really give me much libido boost. But just hold on here. With like 1 1/2 week left the libido suddenly got off the charts! I had sex on my mind constantly. Couldn't get one of my female co workers out of my head either lol! Barracuda, what did you do to me?! It was almost an animal-like feeling. It was like being a teenager times ten. Libido from morning to evening and even in my dreams haha! Okay, calm down now! So, the sexual side of things was a bit strange and didn't follow the usual pattern one tends to see in test boosters. But it worked after all, and it worked big time.

    Sleep: test boosters tend to provide some good sleep and Barracuda did that in some regards I think. There isn't magnesium, zinc or vitamin D in the product, which can promote good deep sleep. But overall it was okay. I had plenty of vivid dreams and many of them sexual in nature, go figure! But I think that the lack of ZMA and vitamin D is a bit of a negative in all honesty. These ingredients are proven test boosting compounds and could have been the icing on the cake here. Just my preferences though. If MTS ever wants to improve the product, I would suggest adding these ingredients.

    Alpha male feeling/aggressiveness: didn't feel alpha all the time to tell you the truth. I have felt it with other test booster products but not explicitly here. There were glimpses here and there where those things shined, but not consistent over the full cycle. That's okay. I don't need to go around feeling alpha or aggressive all day either. Again, this is a natty test booster, not anabolic steroids. But there were times

    Lean mass/hardening/performance: I didn't notice much with the first two categories. With some anti-estrogenic ingredients in large dosages you can get that hardening effect. I also think that you would have to use a product for months in order to reap those benefits. Performance wise I felt as I said an increase in endurance, especially cardio related. Count in the energy as well. Overall, I had the feeling of improved performance in the gym even if I didn't break any PBs. I felt constantly on the go.

    Value

    Right of the bat I will say that the value is good here. Test boosters are usually expensive and you can find products that go for $ 80-90. And they usually have prop blends and questionable ingredients or dosages. But Barracuda is not one of those hyper expensive or shady products. In fact, the price is very fair I would say, considering the test booster category in general. First off, you get a full month supply, that is, 30 days worth. Many test boosters only lasts for like 15-20 days. Second, you have a fully transparent label which increases value in my book. At Muscle & Strength you can find this for $ 34.99, which comes out to about $ 1.17 a day. You have the same price on Tiger Fitness and on I'll Pump You Up.com. The same goes for Amazon. So, considering that this is a 30 day supply and that it is a test booster, I would say that the value is very nice indeed. One of the better products on the market in that regard.

    Side Effects

    A couple of times drinking this triggered some acid reflux so taking this with a meal may be a good way of minimising that. Otherwise, nothing to report in this category.

    Conclusion

    I would definitely recommend this product for those who are looking for a reasonably priced and effective test booster. In some regards, this was an excellent product; it gave me plenty of natural energy, alertness and endurance in the gym. Many older guys are looking for just those effects, so in that sense this was a success. However, the libido aspect was weird and came up late in the cycle. But when it came, bro, I'll tell ya! Sleep was okay, but I feel that ZMA and vitamin D should have been included in the profile, that would have made it more complete and the sleep aspect would have been more improved. But overall, those things are just minor complaints. I think that this has been the best test booster I have taken up to date. It provided me with a good deal of benefits and the value is great as well. I enjoyed the ride with it. MTS is a well known and established company and this is a solid product from them. I recommend it. Again, thanks to Clipper, Tommy and SR.com for the opportunity to try it out.

Sleep Boost may be great for some but I would not be a buyer based on the effectiveness and value compared to my normal sleep aide.

    Introduction

    Well thank you to Nature Restore for their participation in providing a bottle of Sleep Boost for my review. And as always thanks to Tommy and Clippy for all they do to keep the SR Troop program running. Sleep aide supplements have been a staple for me for quite some time now. I'm one of those people who just has a difficult time turning everything off at night. When I should be resting I'm replaying my days and planning tomorrow. Great for being productive from an organizational standpoint but not from a getting good sleep standpoint. Let's have a look at how Sleep Boost stacked up for me.

    Ingredient Profile

    I would be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed to see that the majority of the supplement is in a proprietary blend. But the profile is as follows.

    Magnesium Glycinate 300mg
    L-Theanine 50mg
    Melatonin 6mg

    Proprietary Sleep Boost Blend 1100mg

    Zizphus Jujuba Spinosa
    Reishi
    Siberian Ginseng
    Valeriana Officinalis
    Wullinshen

    So of the known amounts we can see that the Magnesium and Melatonin are in effective dose ranges but the L-Theanine falls short of the effective range of 100-200mg by a considerable amount. I included a snip of the other ingredients as explained by the Nature Restore website but since I don't know the amounts included in each serving I won't go into any detail about them myself.

    One perceived negative is that the standard dose of melatoinin in a serving is 6mg. This may be a little high for some people and lead to being groggy in the mornings. It is fine for me but I can see this being a problem for someone like my wife who is really sensitive to melatonin. Also would be nice to see an effective dose of Theanine since there is pretty strong research that indicates it promotes relaxation.

    Taste/Mixability/Dosing

    Simple protocol to follow here. Three capsules an hour before bed.

    Effectiveness

    While I definitely could feel the effects of Sleep Boost it fell a little flat from the results I get from my normal sleep aide. It was definitely better than nothing but as a comparison I consistently got to sleep earlier and got better quality sleep using my normal fare. I track my sleep with an app called Sleep Cycle which rates your sleep based on how long you sleep, how much you wake up, snoring, etc. and gives you a percentage between 1 and 100. I consistently hit 85-90% sleep quality on my regular sleep aide but found myself turning in a lot more nights between 75% and 85% using Sleep Boost. I would intermittently switch from Sleep Boost to my normal supplement while running Sleep Boost and there was almost always a jump in sleep quality when I went back.

    Again this was better than nothing for me and definitely helped me fall asleep earlier and get better sleep. But I wouldn't pick this up again based on my results.

    Value

    Out of respect I won't mention my normal supplement but I can tell you I get a years worth for about $15 plus tax. But I also do one and a half tablets which makes it less than a years worth but still over 240 days worth. By comparison this is the same price for only a months worth. Is the ingredient profile different and more complex with Sleep Boost. Yes it is. But I think that a big part of value has to be predicated on what else is available in the market. $15 per month for better sleep isn't necessarily a bad value but it is far from being a great value.

    Side Effects

    At the recommended dose of 3 capsules I didn't experience any negative sides such as morning grogginess but at 6mg of melatonin some might have an issue with this.

    Conclusion

    This isn't a bad supplement, but for me there are far better and far cheaper options that deliver better results. I wouldn't recommend this product based on the value aspect alone compared with other options.

    INTRODUCTION

    Thanks to SupplementReviews represented by user @Clipper83 for giving me the opportunity to try this full product: MuscleTech Hydroxycut Elite 100 caps. I've always been bulking, all my life. I had a plan of losing some weight and fat this year and Clipper convinced me to start my plan earlier by trying Hydroxycut Elite 100 capsules so I did. It was more of an experiment with myself considering I've never done it before. But as a general recommendation, if you pretend to lose weight and fat, a supplement by itself won't do that job for you. For you to do it successfully, you need to have the 4 elements: Diet, Exercise, Lifestyle, Supplements. Those 4 elements need to have the aim of losing weight and fat.

    The weight/fat loss objective is a medium/long term PROCESS, you won't be losing too much weight/fat per week or month unless you're obese. Just like you didn't gain that weight/fat in a couple of days nor weeks, then that same way you're going to lose weight/fat. The important thing is to do your plan is a consistent, disciplined way. Details of what I did with each of the 4 elements I mentioned will be below.

    INGREDIENT PROFILE

    This product has 100 capsules. The dose of each ingredient will be based on 2 capsules.

    - 270mg of Caffeine Anhydrous for energy, alertness, focus, mood, etc. For more info and benefits of Caffeine, you can read here: https://supplementreviews.com/ingredients/caffeine If you take a Stimulant Preworkout, then you will have problems taking the 270mg of Caffeine Anhydrous from Hydroxycut Elite so watch out. I was taking Redcon1 Total War while taking Hydroxycut Elite so the Caffeine and other stimulants were hitting me hard lol.

    - 200mg of C. Canephora Robusta Extract (bean) (robusta coffee): This is Hydroxycut's main and key ingredient. Most of their products use this ingredient. So what is this? It's a non-stimulant green coffee bean. From Hydroxycut.com: "C. canephora robusta beans are premium coffee beans that have not yet been roasted and, as a result, have a high level of chlorogenic acid. Hydroxycut uses a robusta coffee extract that has been produced to supply a standardized dose with 45% chlorogenic acid."

    MuscleTech constantly cites this extract from a study: "In one study, subjects taking the primary ingredient (C. Canephora Robusta) in Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite for 60 days lost, on average, 10.95lbs versus the placebo group, who lost an average of 5.40lbs. Both groups followed a low calorie diet. In a separate 8 week study, subjects using the same key ingredient lost an average of 3.7lbs versus subjects using a placebo, who lost an average of 1.25lbs. Both groups followed a calorie reduced diet and performed moderate exercise." Here's the link of the full study on the ingredient where MuscleTech takes out the extract from: https://16rl2t10lsf81yu9ul43w5vn-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/Dellalibera2006.pdf

    Other 2 studies:
    1. Decaffeinated green coffee bean extract attenuates diet-induced obesity and insulin resistance in mice: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24817902
    2. Chlorogenic acid exhibits anti-obesity property and improves lipid metabolism in high-fat diet-induced-obese mice: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20064576

    - 100mg of Coleus Extract (as Coleus Forskohlii) (root) standardized for Forskolin: Another good ingredient like the 2 above. Examine.com says it has several benefits like increase testosterone levels, protect against cancer and inflammation (thanks to Forskolin). It also states this: "Forskolin increases cellular levels of a molecule called cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP). Elevated cAMP levels are associated with increased rates of fat loss, and can improve the effects of other fat burning compounds (Caffeine and Yohimbine for example)." They also suggest a 500mg dose daily with 10% Forskolin although they don't know what's the optimal dose. 100mg seems to be low but the Forskolin percent is unknown so I can't conclude if those 100mg are low or not. Even if it was only 100mg, consider that it's based on 2 capsules and also consider that this ingredient was most likely added to work well together with Caffeine and Yohimbine. I would suggest reading more about this ingredient here, as it has a lot of benefits and potential benefits: https://examine.com/supplements/coleus-forskohlii/

    - 100mg L-Theanine: This ingredient isn't for weight/fat loss but it was added to keep the stimulants "under control" and work well with them as it helps with relaxation, anxiety, stress, etc. I would have maybe liked a slightly higher dose, not a big deal though.

    - 100mg of Theobroma Cacao seed standardized for Theobromine. SR says: "Cocoa extract that exhibits a stimulant-like effect similar to caffeine, but much smoother and longer-lasting." Read more about Theobromine here: https://supplementreviews.com/ingredients/theobromine The thing is we don't know how much Theobromine this has, however, just like Theanine, this is supposed to work well together with the other ingredients.

    - 56.3mg Yohimbe extract (as Pausinystalia Yohimbe) (bark) standardized for 6% yohimbine supplying Rauwolscine. I love this ingredient because of how effective it is. I think the studies are also solid. The thing is it's a bit "easy" for this ingredient to cause some unwanted side effects, that's why supplements have to be careful when adding it to their formulas. So Yohimbe is effective for fat burning, increasing libido, increases adrenaline levels and other benefits. For more info read here: https://examine.com/supplements/yohimbine/

    So we got 4 ingredients for fat/weight loss directly and 2 other ingredients to help handle those 4 ingredients. Sounds good to me. 9/10

    SIZE/DOSING

    Size: Capsule size wasn't a problem, the caps are small-medium size and are easy to swallow. I received the 100 capsule bottle. I think they had a 200 capsule bottle before but I think it's discontinued.

    Dosing: The product has like a table with "suggested usage or directions". They say Day 1 & 2: 1 cap daily, Day 3 & 4: 2 caps daily, Day 5 & 6: 2 caps with meal 1 and 1 cap with meal 2, Day 7 & beyond: 2 caps, twice daily. Considering I was also using a Stimulant Pre-Workout (Redcon1 Total War), then I decided to only use 2 capsules daily, 1 capsule inmediately after waking up (30-60 mins before breakfast) and 1 capsule 30-60 minutes before lunch. They were not my biggest meals but my biggest meal is usually dinner but I couldn't take 1 cap before dinner lol. I tried it like 2 or 3 times and had problems sleeping.

    EFFECTIVENESS

    Purpose: Some weight and fat loss (especially this).
    Height: 5'11
    Initial weight: Something between 205-210lbs. My scale was damaged but it wasn't more than that nor less than that.
    Final weight: 189lbs (uploaded proof below).

    So my plan was the following: Reduce my calories significantly (I don't track my calories but it was something between 500-1000 calories less than usual). I was only eating Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, moderate portions, no Snacks between meals. Exercise consisted of Weightlifting first and Cardio at the end. Hydroxycut Elite inmediately after waking up and 30-60 minutes before lunch. I replaced sugary drinks (soda, juices, etc) with Aminoacids (Ronnie Coleman Amino-Tone), Protein and sometimes even Water (I hate eating food with water but sometimes it was ok). I kept my water intake high during the day for increased & improved metabolism, better digestion, etc. I also reduced my sugar intake drastically (no donuts, no cakes, no ice cream, no cookies, no candies, no sugary drinks, nothing with sugar). My sugar amount wasn't zero but it was low (something between 5-10g max) and I was happy with that. I also chewed food slower and drank liquid with every food intake. Drinking liquid WHILE eating slower will make you feel full faster.

    The capsule inmediately after waking up helped a lot. I probably felt it the most because it was the first thing taken on empty stomach. It was only 1 capsule but the effects were like if I took 2. Thermogenic effect was felt, energy effect was felt, better mood was felt (liked this effect a lot). The second capsule (the one 30-60 minutes) before lunch (pre-workout meal) had me feeling the thermogenic effect and also I felt my body was using the food ingested to burn fat and lose weight. That being said, that effect sometimes made me hungry after my lunch (preworkout meal) but it was under control because I knew I couldn't eat much because my workout was already coming 2 hours later. Here, the water and aminoacids helped a lot to keep me full and concentrated on the objective of not eating a lot.

    I was surprised with what it did with my abdominal fat. I think that by the end of Week 2, I could already notice a big decrease on abdominal fat. I could easily notice this effect because of my 'Waist Protection Belt' or 'Weightlifting belt' (whatever you want to call it). It was much easier to use and even with all my stomach out, the belt kept intact. These effects kept increasing each week so I was satisfied with my fat loss. I could also notice these effects with my pants and other clothes. I lost size on other muscles but I was already expecting that. I sometimes added a protein shake to my usual daily diet to try and maintain muscle, I think I did, of course not 100% but I would say something like 80% to 90%.

    Considering I was only taking 2 capsules instead of the 4 capsules (max. daily dose), I have to say that I was very impressed with my results. I couldn't believe when my weight was 195lbs and even less when I went down to 189lbs at the end of using this product! If my initial weight was 205lbs, I was expecting maybe to go down to 195lbs and if it was 210lbs I was expecting to go down to 200lbs. But 189lbs, using only 2 capsules, only 1 bottle, with reduced calories is impressive. My cravings attack me after I eat Dinner during the night. I go to bed late so cravings start attacking while I'm watching tv and doing other things. I could control this with a Protein supplement. Dealing with cravings was most difficult during the first 2 weeks but it kept getting easier each time. My mood during the night was not so good hahaha, I was kind of angry I couldn't take my sugary stuff!

    I'm giving it a 9 because the only effect I felt this product wasn't so strong was in apettite reduction/control. But I wasn't expecting this product to control my apettite. I feel Protein supplements control my apettite better than any fat/weight loss product. The strategies I used to control my apettite worked (read the whole first paragraph of Effectiveness). I feel that running this on the max daily dose and/or using 2 bottles (like I think they want you to use) would have given even better results (probably with the apettite control too). Very satisfied with this product!

    VALUE

    Hydroxycut Elite also shines here. You can find this product on prices between $14 - $34.99. This product is always on BOGO, key word: Always. So if you're intelligent, you will look for the $29.99 BOGO deal to buy 2 bottles, which would make each bottle cost $15. Getting a BOGO deal of $34.99 would make it $17.5 per bottle, still a great deal. If you buy 1 bottle for $29.99, it's still worth it based on effectiveness but considering this product is always on BOGO at a lot of places, then that's how you should buy it, not only because of the low excellent price but also because that will guarantee 2 bottles, which means 2-4 months using it! That would be ideal, remember it's a process.

    Considering I have no complaints about the Value, then I'll give it a 10. It doesn't mean there's not another product with a better value, maybe yes. But there's no way I can think of that this product can be cheaper. Constant BOGO promos (3 years and counting), individual units are also very cheap, nothing to complain. It's also available everywhere.

    SIDE EFFECTS

    As a product alone, none. But if you also consume stimulant pre-workouts, the effects of the high caffeine might hit you hard with a crash post-workout or even during your workout, so watch your caffeine/stimulant intake. This effect is not directly from Hydroxycut Elite, it's more because of the high caffeine intake from both products. This happened to me a couple of times but my body then adapted to this circumstance of high caffeine/stimulant.

    CONCLUSION

    Every claim made by the product was met. Increased thermogenesis, faster and improved metabolism, great formula with good researched ingredients, better sensorial effects, more energy, weight and fat loss. What else do you want? You put all those effects in a weight/fat loss regime and you should get good results like me. Some people take weight/fat loss products and also want to build volume and build muscle, etc. Impossible? No. But it's not realistic in the sense that it requires a lot of effort, sacrifice, food timing, accurate food measures, very high protein intake, adequate carbohydrate amount and quality, and a long etc. Most people don't do that. Then they come here or somewhere else and say their weight/fat wasn't reduced so the product didn't work lol. Of course not, you kept your carbs and/or fat high to build muscle and increase volume. I prefer and can really do only one objective (weight/fat loss in this case), which is why I talked about muscle MAINTENANCE.

    SUGGESTIONS FOR THE COMPANY

    1. Considering you make a lot of products, I would suggest making another product (without discontinuing Hydroxycut Elite) that puts emphasis (high dose) on Coleus Extract. That ingredient seems to have a lot of potential.

    Good morning SR.com family. Today I am here to review a product I received through the SR.com TROOP program. VMI Sports partnered with SR.com to let a few of us try their Pre-Workout/Pump product called Vasogen. Everyone loves a good pump. Everyone loves to look in the mirror and see a vein or two that wasn't there previously. Since it's the summer time I figured I cant hide all that "bulking" fat I had put on over the winter so I had better start cutting. Since then, I have been steadily following a pretty strict diet. I'm eating about 3500 calories a day and still losing weight. Energy isn't a problem. When I ordered this I was looking for something that would help get the blood flowing during the workouts. Vasogen gave me what I was looking for.

    Ingredient Profile

    *PROP BLEND WARNING*

    I usually don't care for a product that throws everything together in a prop blend and runs with it. I feel like all companies should take the time to list the ingredients separately. Otherwise, to me, it looks like you are hiding something. With Vasogen, I didn't seem to mind as much. Probably because I could tell the difference from taking it and not taking it.

    They list 3 ingredients individually. But, those 3 I don't care about. B-3, Chloride, and Sodium don't matter to me on the ingredient label. I'm more interested in knowing how much Hawthorne Berry Powder, Agmapure Agmatine Sulfate, and Schizandra Berry Powder are in it. Being that it's a prop blend I can't be sure that I am getting enough of the Agmapure Agmatine Sulfate. 500-750mg's is effective. Ideally you want closer to 1g. From the way I felt I looked while working out I feel like, if they are under dosed it's not by much.

    Taste/Mixability/Dosing

    Taste- There is no taste since this is in pill form.

    Mixability- No mixing it with anything.

    Dosing - Pretty Simple. 1-2 pills 15-30 minutes before your workout.

    Effectiveness

    So, I tried Vasogen in a variety of different ways. I tried taking 1-2 pill before workouts with nothing else. I took 1-2 pills with another preworkout. Each dosage gave me better and better results. Vasogen by itself with one pill didn't do anything for me. I weigh about 210lbs so I figured it wouldn't. Upon taking two pills I could see a better pump than taking nothing/1 pill. When I combined 1 pill with another preworkout I had it seemed to work the best. The pumps/energy in the gym were outrageous. I didn't want to stop looking at myself in the mirror. I had veins coming out across my chest and it wasn't even chest day :) I thought, let me try two pills with the same preworkout.... Bad idea... don't do that. I'm guessing it was to much for my CNS. I got a headache halfway through and just felt lethargic. From that day on I would either just take two Vasogen by themselves or 1 with another preworkout. Since then I have loved the Pump and energy you get.

    Value

    I found Vasogen for $30 on Amazon. This is for 60 pills which, if combined with another preworkout like I did, gives you 60 workouts for only $30. That's an easy YES for me. Especially when I know the results I'm going to get. Now, if you just want to take that by itself as your preworkout then you still get 30 workouts for $30. That's still a GREAT deal for a product that I think will give you a solid pump.

    Side Effects

    If you combine two Vasogen pills with another preworkout then you might regret it like I did. If you use as directed then you should be fine.

    Conclusion

    By itself, Vasogen is just OK... Combined with another preworkout it's REALLY GOOD. Not sure that I recommend everyone do that. But, it worked for me. The label is a prop blend that also leads me to believe that some of the ingredients may be under dosed. I don't know for sure. In the end, I do receommend that you give this a shot to see how this works out for you. With the price tag you shouldn't worry about wasting your money. I think it's worth it. Lastly, THANK YOU to SR.com and VMI Sports for giving me the opportunity to try another product. You guys ROCK!

    Quick Summary

    An above-average one-pill multi at a fantastic price.

    Introduction

    Thanks to FLEX for allowing me to run several of their products. I basically transitioned from taking their more robust multi, RX, directly in their simpler MEGA MULTI, which provided me a good frame of reference for this review.

    I'm a believer in consistently taking a daily multivitamin in order to ensure I'm meeting core nutritional needs. I usually stick to a basic, one-pill multi with a relatively simple ingredient profile (ON's Opti-Men is my go-to). Also I want to note that I view multi-vitamins the same way I view protein - as a mandatory dietary staple; not a product I expect will take me to the next level. Thus it makes this particular category rather difficult to review.

    Ingredient Profile

    The core profile of MEGA is essentially identical to their other multi-vitamin, RX, except the doses of primary ingredients has been halved. Conversely, and this was a con for me when I reviewed RX, the dosages of other, less essential minerals is actually higher in MEGA than they are in RX. This includes Calcium, Magnesium, Selenium, Chromium, and Potassium. Of course, as you would expect in a simpler multi-vitamin, it lacks any sort of "bonus" complex such as an enzyme blend, amino acids, or additional organ support.

    Now, all that said, the core dosages of Vitamins A-E (including all the B's) in MEGA are still quite strong. RX was VERY competitively dosed on this front, so halving the dose is not as negatively impactful as it might sound. MEGA still matches up closely with Opti-Men in its amounts of A, C, the various B's, and Folate. And the secondary ingredients I mentioned? They are not only a vast improvement from RX, but the majority of them are dosed higher in MEGA than they are in Opti-Men. All said and done, I actually PREFER the profile of MEGA to that of RX, and we haven't even gotten to the Value section yet.

    Of course, I always like to state that pills simply are not a good delivery method of vitamins. They don't trigger digestion and thus aren't absorbed very efficiently (which is why it's always recommended to take vitamins with meals). To compensate for this most multivitamins contain a greater than required amount of core ingredients (it's why you see 800% daily value of an ingredient included in a single dose - you don't actually absorb all 800%). Additionally, the recommended daily value doesn't account for factors such as body mass and metabolism. Personally I prefer a vitamin profile that includes high doses of vital, water-soluble vitamins.

    Taste/Mixability/Dosing

    No issues at all. One easy to swallow hard-packed tablet with no powder burps or overly strong odor/taste. I usually took my tablet with dinner.

    Effectiveness

    As stated, it's difficult to gauge a vitamin's effectiveness. Did I notice a significant difference taking MEGA compared to RX or Opti-Men or another multi? Not really. I can't point to any specifics changes in my health or fitness progress as being directly attributable to this product. But actually, in this case, I think this is a point in favor of MEGA. Coming right off of a more robust product, I felt the same. MEGA kept me running and healthy and I saw no differences in general health or wellness.

    I will also note that I did not get sick during my time on MEGA, which was a plus considering I've done a good bit of travel the past few weeks.

    Value

    The industry norm for a men's multi is roughly .50c per dose, with the more aggressive "packs" running closer to $1.00 per day. I could only find Flex Nutrition's MEGA MULTI on their own website for $20 for a 60 pill bottle. That's a FANTASTIC cost of .33c per day. One of the cheapest I can find for a multi that still has a relatively robust profile, and certainly a far cry from the cost of Flex's RX multi, which has a very steep price of $1.20 per day.

    This is even less expensive than Opti-Men, which you can dose at .46c per day. Granted, you do get a bit more from that product than you do from MEGA, particular with some of the aforementioned bonus complexes, but this is still impressive to me.

    Side Effects

    None.

    Conclusion

    I think Flex Nutrition has a winner here and it was absolutely my favorite of their three products that I ran. This is a basic multi with a solid, competitive profile at a GREAT price point. Absolutely ideal for anyone on a budget. Hard to beat this. I would 100% recommend and will likely purchase for myself in the future.

    Quick Summary

    Hello again. 5% Nutrition by Rich Piana ( Rest in Peace). The massive individual against Macro-Nutrient sources that wasnt from whole foods. I am currently not on any specific program, im not looking to grow or cut drastically anytime soon, I wanted a carb source and finally landed on Real Food

    Introduction

    The key is in the simplicity of this product, this particular review will be shorter than normal but hopefully by the end you will understand why.
    When looking for a Carb source I was not intending on using it Intra or post workout, i did not want any rapid absorption or Insulin response, so i was looking to stay away from Dextrose, Maltodextrin, Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin and so on. I wanted something to literally replace a whole food carb source when I was not hungry but needed to fill in my macros.
    Real Food was pretty much the only product I could find that fit my current need, Im sure there are more out there but I am also too lazy to keep looking around extensively.
    As far as we know Rich Piana was against overly processed macronutrients, Now a lot of people may argue the Semantics of his personal stance vs his supplement line which is processed by nature, so lets forget all that and just look at the Product at face value.

    Ingredient Profile

    Essentially Rich Piana wanted certain carb sources, dehydrated them and processed it into powder form.
    Serving Size 1scoop 30g
    Pounded Yams 10,000mg
    Oats 7000mg
    Sweet Potato 10,000mg
    Blueberry Fruit 500mg

    If you add up all the active ingredients you get 27g or 90% leaving 3g or 10% for colors, flavors etc. This is a very impressive ratio.
    Each serving will give you 20grams of Carbohydrates.

    Taste/Mixability/Dosing

    Taste is great. There are currently 2 flavors, Sweet potato Pie and Blueberry Cobbler, The Sweet Potato is very yummy with a creamy cake undertone especially when mixed with a good Vanilla protein powder. The Blueberry is a little sweet on the palate but not over bearing.
    Now when you are judging the mixability be careful, these are whole food sources, so you will have chunks of oats floating all throughout the bottle then settling on the bottom, you will need to shake your bottle before every sip. Still easy to drink as long as you dont mind chewing on the oats, but it is better used when blending the product.
    There isnt anything to comment on dosing. its a carb source and you get carbs.

    Effectiveness

    As mentioned above it is all depending on your need. As a carb source to fit your macros throughout the day it is perfect, Complex Carbohydrate sources that will not drastically spike your Insulin or absorb immediately.
    I would not find this ideal as an Intra Workout source as the digestion will be very slow or for Immediate Post workout as again the digestion and absorption will be slow, but if you need to fill in your carbs with a shake, smoothie, sludge or oatmeal then this is a great product.

    Value

    This was my only real issue with the product. Here in Canada it is a little expensive, I have seen it on sale for roughly $50 up to $79.99. For a 60 serving tub it is a little expensive for a slow digesting carb source without any other ingredient or need

    Side Effects

    I have been fine with the product. It is sweetened with Sucralose so for those that dont like artificial sweeteners might want to stay away
    It is a Complex Carb source, because it is in powder form doesnt change your Daily caloric intake or need. If you drink too much of it beyond your need you will gain some weight.

    Conclusion

    Overall, if you can find this on sale then it is a good product. It is definitely not needed as you can eat the same complex carbs instead of buying a supplement. If you are on a Lean Bulk and are the type of person that just cant higher volumes of clean whole foods then it is a great Carbohydrate product.

    Quick Summary

    I was really excited to try this because the panel looked nice and clean, I am a big fan of meal replacements in general, and everyone who'd reviewed it so far said it tasted great. It definitely did taste good, but every time I tried it I got terrible stomach cramps and ultimately had to call it quits on this one.

    Quick Summary

    I was really excited to try this because the panel looked nice and clean, I am a big fan of meal replacements in general, and everyone who'd reviewed it so far said it tasted great. It definitely did taste good, but every time I tried it I got terrible stomach cramps and ultimately had to call it quits on this one.

    Introduction

    I want to thank TBN Labs for sending this out. Anyone who's been on this site for a while knows I'm usually the biggest baby in the mix when it comes to digestion issues with proteins/mass gainers/meal replacements. I think this is the third time I've been the only one experiencing issues. Maybe it's just me, but regardless, I drink proteins and meal replacements/mass gainers all the time that *don't* cause me issues, and there must be some jello-bellied consumer out there just as concerned about putting their tummy into knots as I am. So, I must do my duty (indigestion pun) and tell everyone about my woes.

    I typically use mass gainers/meal replacements as post-workout shakes or late afternoon snacks. I'm an early morning lifter, lately early enough to be waiting for the doors to be unlocked. I'm also constantly on the go at work and as a dad, so shakes are a serious necessity to avoid anything wrapped in paper and handed to me through a window.

    Ingredient Profile

    I had some issues with the ingredient profile of Total Mass before I even ordered it, but the positive reviews sold me.

    What we know is that one laundry-detergent sized scoop yields 480k/cal and 0g fat, and 25g of protein, then in parenthesis (as Caseinate and Gelatine). But then we have a 12g Total Mass Blend with no casein or gelatin listed-- just whey concentrate and isolate. Is this additional protein? Are there more than 25g? Who knows. We have no indication on the amount of carbs in here either. The Total Mass blend lists whey concentrate and isolate as the first two ingredients with no indication of the filtration method, then glutamine peptide (I don't want to accuse anyone of protein spiking, but wasn't this one of the most common amino acids used when companies were doing that? Concerning...), then Waxi Maize, sweet potato powder, wild yam extract, brown rice powder, maltodextrin, and multi grains powder.

    So, Waxi Maize is the chief carb here, at least we know that. That's a good, slow digesting, low insulin spiking carb source.

    Overall though, the lack of transparency is killing me. How can you not list the carbs? And, I still think the proteins seem misleading.

    Just not a huge fan of the ingredient panel in general.

    Taste/Mixability/Dosing

    Dosing: I tried this in the morning before work and after my lift, before bed, and in the afternoon between meals. No matter when I tried it I got the same bad reaction. I had knots in my stomach every time within 5 minutes of drinking it. It didn't matter if I sipped it or chugged it, they'd hit me at the same speed but with varying intensity.

    Mixability: I'd say slightly below average here. It was fine in a blender, but when shaken I could never get it all dissolved. There were big chunks of cookie or chocolate in there, but there was always little flour-like chunks as well that threw off the texture.

    Taste: The taste was on point. It tasted quite good and didn't have any stevia bitter aftertaste.

    Effectiveness

    Unfortunately, I really can't make a determination on this one. I barely made it through half the tub and had to take days-long breaks between servings to bring myself to drink it again. I was always met with disappointment when I finally did... and discomfort.

    I'd usually gauge a meal replacement/mass gainer like this on satiety, taste, macros, and finally, whether I noticed a gain in size or change in composition. I can't judge the macros at all because they don't even tell you how many carbs are in it and I'm not sure the protein is even accurate, the satiety was thrown off by the fact that I felt sick for hours after taking it, and there's no way I can judge the change in composition or size because I couldn't take it consistently or even finish. The taste was good. I'll give them that. +1.

    Value

    I believe this is only for sale on TBN's website right now at $44.75 for 19 servings. That works out to $2.36/serving which is right about average, maybe slightly below other competitors in the category.

    Side Effects

    If I haven't belabored it enough, stomach cramps and indigestion every time I tried it.

    Conclusion

    I simply can't recommend this product. If you're on the fence about whether to buy this, you can certainly pay closer attention to the other reviewers who tried this and had great things to say but I'm not one of them. I think there are better, including tastier, options available for you to try that you'll be much happier with.

    Thank you again to TBN, sorry this one didn't work out for me.

    Introduction

    I want start by thanking Outbreak for their ongoing participation.

    While I haven't taken many standalone nootropics, most of the ingredients in Transmit were things I was accustomed to from their use in PWOs. I was interested to see how they would work outside of the gym, and whether they could even lessen my dependence on the adderall prescription I've been taking for over 10 years.

    I normally work out early in the morning, lately it's been 4:30 due to a new clinical rotation my wife has been put on, and I usually need a boost by 10am or so to keep me rolling throughout the day.

    Ingredient Profile

    As mentioned in the intro, most if not all of these ingredients can also be found in some of the more robust/dynamic PWOs on the market currently.

    Bacopa Monnieri (300mg) - This is the standard dose assuming bacosides are 55%. The Bacopa Monnieri is standardized to 50%, so it's a little less than the standard dose when considering that bit. The herb has demonstrated notable ability to improve memory according to Examine.com, and can also reduce anxiety.

    AlphaSize (Alpha GPC) (200mg) - This is one of my favorite ingredients to see, as it can not only boost mood and cognition, but can also increase power output significantly. However in the study that showed a 14% increase in power output they used a dose of 600mg, and the studies that showed an improvement in cognition used doses upwards of 1,200mg. However, Outbreak is using a very high-end type of A-GPC by opting to go with AlphaSize, which may reduce the amount needed to notice the benefits.

    Phosphatidylserine (200mg) - studied in a surprisingly wide range of areas including golf performance, forgetting, anaerobic running capacity, childhood ADHD, and a variety of other areas generally related to cognition, I was surprised to have never heard of it. It may provide benefits at doses as low as 100mg daily, but 3 servings of 100mg daily (300mg total), seems to be the recommended amount and higher doses seem safe.

    Caffeine (200mg) - Kind of the sweet spot for nootropics I'd say. I personally never get a big kick from caffeine in pill form though.

    TheaKalm (L-Theanine) (200mg) - Great when used alongside caffeine, it will help relax users without causing drowsiness. This is a high dose using a high quality source.

    Dynamine (Methyliberine) (125mg) - Used to heighten mood and focus by activating dopamine receptors and inhibiting adenosine receptors without elevating heart rate. This is a solid dose.

    Cognizin (Citicoline) (125mg) - Meant to improve attention and memory, but with additional benefits like reduction in blood pressure. The standard dose is 500-2000mg daily so this is much lower than what has been studied to show the positive results.

    Huperzine A (Huperzia Serrata) (10mg) - If the label is accurate, this is a whopping dose for something that's usually measured by mcg's. 200mcg is a high end dose according to examine.com, which would be the equivalent of .2mg. There hasn't been a ton of research published yet, but generally speaking it appears to enhance cognition, memory, and focus.

    Taste/Mixability/Dosing

    No taste/No mixing.

    Standard dose is 3 pills daily. I usually took mine around 10am after getting to the office and settling in. Sometimes it would be a bit earlier, but not really ever any later. Interestingly, the label on the bottle instructs you to take this with food. Some of the ingredients are in fact fat soluble, so that would make sense, but others are not and are better served to be taken on an empty stomach. I usually only drink a meal replacement shake in the morning and usually around 7:30; so by 9:30/10, I usually have a relatively empty stomach but am not feeling hungry. Moral of the story being that I kind of split the difference. Didn't take it with food, but not on an empty stomach either.

    Effectiveness

    Despite many of these ingredients being underdosed based on my research, I found that Transmit worked very well. My wife actually stole a few pills as well and she is also prescribed adderall (our lives are chaos). She felt like she didn't need to take her prescription at all if she'd take 2 of these pills. I personally felt like I could survive without adderall while taking them, but would prefer not to. Using my normal script as a baseline and taking them in tandem I found them to be really effective. I wouldn't say this skewed the results or anything either since I have refused to increase my scripted dose in over 8 years. I didn't notice much of an energy boost from the caffeine, but I can't think of any time that caffeine in pill form has really woken me up at all anyway. I was definitely able to dial into my work more effectively than I've been able to since I ran out, and my word recall when speaking to clients/borrowers/coworkers/bosses was definitely heightened while taking this as well. Overall I really liked it.

    Value

    The best price I found for this was at DPSNutrition.com using a priceplow coupon to bring the total to $32.49. At 30 servings you're at a little over $1/day which is pretty affordable. If I were working on a difficult project or studying for finals or something, this would be worth it all day long.

    Side Effects

    None at all.

    Conclusion

    I say if you need a boost at work or in school, give this a shot. I'm thinking it would be great for people that spend a lot of time on the phone and want to stay calm and composed but also sharp and on-point. It would be great for students and also for people that have to work shift jobs with very little opportunity for breaks. I think it could also be applied as a preworkout if you are taking something along with it that isn't too stim heavy. I'd encourage anyone interested in it to try it and experiment with the best application.

    Quick Summary & Introduction

    Rocket Fuel is a pump oriented PWO but does include caffeine. Taken on training days, while on a volume training regimen. Thanks again SR Troops for providing this full container.

    Ingredient Profile

    A pretty basic and fully disclosed ingredient profile including:
    5000mg of Citrulline Malate, great for the pump
    3000mg of Beta Alanine, a great dosing of this, had the tingly feeling
    2000mg of D-Ribose, helps with creating new ATP
    2000mg of AminoZorb, BCAA's at a 2:1:1, good for muscle recovery

    Quick Summary & Introduction

    2000mg of AminoZorb, BCAA's at a 2:1:1, good for muscle recovery
    1500mg of Kre-Alkalyn, buffered creatine, good for ATP production, strength and energy
    1000mg of Tyrosine, mood and focus enhancer
    325 mg of caffeine

    All together, this ingredient profile is very similar to that of total war, which was a PWO that I thought worked very well. One thing that I think this PWO could use is another 1000mg of Citrulline Malate. It would make the pump that much more intense, reduce DOMS and would make a better all around PWO.

    Taste/Mixability/Dosing

    Taste: I had the fruit punch flavor and I wouldn't say it was anything great, but it was about par. I'll give it an 8/10

    Mixability: Never had an issue mixing this fully

    Dosing: 1 heeping scoop in 8 oz of water taken 30-45 minutes before workout

    Effectiveness

    I'm gonna give this a 8.5/10 effectiveness. It seemed like a pretty standard PWO to me, granted I've always been a stim junky and this is one of the few pump PWO's I have tried, but I'm also giving it this rating because I felt like I could've gotten more of a pump than I had. I still got a lot of really good pumps and workouts while using this, but what held me back was the amount of skin tight pumps that I would have gotten on previous PWO's I have taken.

    Moving forward, the energy levels were upped every time after taking a serving, always ready to kill the next workout. I had a relatively short recovery time in between sets which is huge for someone like me who likes to take short rest times. I didn't notice any increase in strength while using this, but I was able to keep my volume high throughout every workout.

    Again, it had my energy levels risen, my recovery period short and my volume high, but it didn't give me the pump I desired and it didn't help too much with DOMS which I was surprised with given the short recovery time, but I guess you can't always have everything.

    Value

    A hard PWO to find online, but cheapest found at $49.49 for about 33 servings or approximately $1.50/serving

    Conclusion

    A solid PWO for someone who isn't huge on stimulants but is still looking to get a good pump going.
