    Skeptical on Deer Antler but amazing product!
    Hello SR family, I have been active in sports and weightlifting for a while now. 13+ years in baseball and 3-4 in weight lifting. I have always been an active person and all about bettering myself day in and day out. I have never came across a pre workout with deer antler until I came across this. So I decided to give it a shot and see what it was all about!

    —-Ingredient Profile—-
    With 200mg of caffeine I found this pre workout to give an amazing dose of energy without any jitters or feeling like I am going to overdue it on the caffeine intake. No crash just clean energy that last for a while so I would not recommend taking it close to bedtime.

    6000mg of citrulline malate helps provide the pump with ONLY 200mg of caffeine. The Himalayan rock salt is something I have not seen before either in a pre workout but it is supposed to help with detoxing according to google. The big ingredient that stands out is the Deer Antler. We all know its been a craze lately so maybe they tried to put it in here so people would see it included and buy it but with or without it would be fine I do not think it would make that much of a difference.

    So this product mixes very well. i have tried blood raz and loved it. It is pretty sweet and tangy if you do not have enough water with it. I sometimes took it straight up and followed it with water. Beware that some does stay on the bottom so be prepared for a very sweet and somewhat sour last sip that might be a little clumpy as well. Other than that this product is good. Never been a big person on taste so it makes no difference with me. As long as the product does what it needs that is all that matters.

    VERY clean energy and the pumps are out of this world! I suggest if you want to have good energy and be able to pick these weights up no problem to get this. You will not be disappointed at all with the effectiveness of this products. It does what it needs to do and more! With every rep I took you could feel the muscle just getting pumped with blood and within the first set you will have a killer pump that will have everyone mirin. Biceps and quads is what I got the best pumps from but I am sure it will vary from person to person. I think in all this product carries a punch and fires you up for a killer workout every time. Have never had to take more than one scoop so tolerance build up is basically non existent it seems like.

    I would get this for about 29.99 for a 30 serving at Vitamin World. But I am sure you can find it for the same price online. It was a bit pricey when it first came out but I think they realized it was a little to expensive for what they were offering.

    —-Side Effects—-
    no side effects reported

    If you are serious about getting some energy and gains then definitely get this and go train like a beast! Price is spot on and so is the product. Have gotten a few friends hooked on it and nobody has had a single complaint on it. I will also add I was a manager at a supplement store and lots of customers came in and tried the product for the first time and would always come back every month or so after that for a new bottle… sooo…. GET IT fit fam!

    Good stuff!
    This stuff is great! Bucked ups other pre-workout called “WOKE AF” is even more effective. I use pre-workout on most days I workout and have built a pretty high tolerance, but “WOKE AF” has yet to fail me. When I take this stuff I’m more focused and my workouts are more intense. I only use this stuff when I know I’ll be in the gym for a long time (more than one hour). overall, this product, as well as their other pre-workouts, are very effective and you definitely get your monies worth!

    Good low-stim pump product, but underwhelming in all other areas.

    I used this product both as a preworkout and also as a coffee substitute, since it is way too hot outside for me to drink coffee for now. My workouts consisted of strength training 4 days per week, with little to no cardio. I also used this at work which usually consists of sitting at a desk for most of the day, but I also worked some 8 hour days landscaping in southern Mississippi heat and humidity. Sometimes I would mix this in a water bottle, and sometimes I would put the powder straight into my mouth and chase it with water. It seemed to work equally with both methods, so I did whatever was convenient at the time. Overall, this product did what I needed it to do for the most part, which was to give me energy and endurance for my workouts and daily activities, but I tended to need more than the recommended dosage more often than not, especially before workouts.

    —-Ingredient Profile—-

    I really like the fact that this has no proprietary blends, which is always the first thing I look for when I am choosing a product. I don’t necessarily discount a product if it has prop blends, but it was certainly a good first impression to see that this had a fully-disclosed label. I had mixed feelings about the ingredients, though, as some appeared to be underdosed, but I was willing to give the benefit of the doubt considering the AstraGin was in there to increase bioavailability. Here is a quick rundown on the ingredients for reference:

    [b]Citrulline Malate:[/b] Promotes endurance by helping get rid of ammonia produced during exercise, and increases bloodflow as your body converts it to L-Arginine and then nitric oxide. At 6g per scoop, you’ve got a good dose here.

    [b]Beta-Alanine:[/b] Promotes endurance by making the body less acidic. At 2g, this product falls short of having the standard 3.2g per serving, but this may be mitigated by the AstraGin contained in this as well.

    [b]Caffeine Anhydrous:[/b] Good ‘ol caffeine. Energy, power, and endurance booster, as well as a cognitive enhancer. You have 200 mg in here, which is about the same as a couple cups of coffee, or your average energy drink.

    [b]AlphaSize Alpha GPC:[/b] Nootropic containing choline. This is meant to improve cognition and focus. Standard dose is between 300-600mg, so this seems underdosed at 200mg, unless the Astragin is meant to increase its absorption.

    [b]Taurine:[/b] Used for a myriad of purposes such as reducing anxiety, reducing cramping, and promoting hydration. Standard dose tend to be between 500mg at the very low end up to 2000+ mg. This contains 100mg.

    [b]Himalayan Rock Salt:[/b] Contains trace minerals, I’m assuming it’s in here to help replace electrolytes lost while exercising.

    [b]Deer Antler Velvet Extract:[/b] This is in here to support accelerated recovery. I admittedly know little about this ingredient, but a quick look on examine.com suggests that most if not all claims about this product enhancing athletic performance and recovery are exaggerated at best.

    [b]AstraGin:[/b] Increases absorption of the other ingredients; the label specifically mentions citrulline.

    [b]ActiGin:[/b] In here to increase VO2 Max and boost athletic performance.

    —-Taste/Mixability: 8.5/10—-

    I had the Blood Raz flavor, and it was very tasty. It had a slight initial tartness with a sweet orange-y finish. It mixed well with minimal sediment in my water bottle using roughly 10oz of water and anywhere between 1-2 scoops. The tartness was much more pronounced when putting the powder directly in my mouth and chasing with water, but it wasn’t overpowering and was tasty using this method as well.


    With one scoop, the results for me were just kind of “meh”. I could tell it was working because of the familiar beta alanine tingles and I usually got a decent pump, but I always found myself reaching for an additional caffeine source such as a Bang energy drink or some kind of RTD like Speed Stack to give a little extra energy. With two scoops, the results were very good, and more in line with what I expect from a preworkout. I’ll break down my experience into some typical preworkout categories. These values are based on me taking 2 scoops.

    [b]Energy and Endurance: 7/10[/b]

    The beta alanine tingles were always the first sign it was starting to kick in for me, followed by a gradual increase in alertness. This product never gave me a sudden jolt of energy upon kicking in, but instead gradually increased, plateaued at a moderate intensity, and then gradually wore off without me really even noticing. I never had a problem completing my workouts, which typically take about an hour, so I feel like it did what I needed it to do. I personally prefer a quick hit followed by a slow tapering off with energy, but this would be a good option for someone looking for something on the lighter side stimulant-wise.

    [b]Focus: 6/10[/b]

    I never got “tunnel vision” focus while using this, but I could tell I was slightly less distracted. It felt like the slight boost in focus I get from energy drinks that contain caffeine, but have no additional focus-oriented ingredients.

    [b]Pump: 8/10[/b]

    This is where this product really shined for me. I always got a pump no matter what part of my body I worked out. The pumps were what I would consider a “wet” pump I typically get while taking bulk citrulline malate, where the muscles look and feel inflated rather than more dense. This is my favorite kind of pump as clothes felt smaller, especially when working shoulders/arms, and deadlifts seemed to inflate almost every part of my body. Even walking upstairs on days I took this at work made my quads feel bigger. Very solid here.


    Here is where this product takes a hit for me, since I had to take more than 1 scoop to get the effects I wanted, but your mileage may vary. The cheapest I’ve found this online is $42.95, which comes out to $1.43 per serving assuming free shipping. That’s really not too bad, but it’s still a little pricey in my opinion considering there are other options out there within or below this price point that work as well or better. However, if you need to take two servings like me, then you’re looking at double that, which is too steep for me considering there are other, cheaper and more effective options.

    —-Side Effects—-

    I experienced no side effects while using this product.


    In conclusion, I’m glad I tried this, but I know now that I prefer something more energy and focus oriented. I would recommend this to someone looking for a low-stim preworkout option, though, especially if they enjoy having a good pump and respond well to citrulline malate. I’d try to find it on sale, though, or use some kind of deal to lower the price a little.
