JetFuse is a Pre-Workout manufactured by German American Technologies. It is designed to help provide a pre-training advantage by increasing mental focus, muscle performance, endurance and blood flow. This creates an environment optimal for increasing muscle mass and losing body fat.
Quick SummaryThis song from Kanye West finally makes sense after using Jetfuse for a while. One and a half month of wasted workouts. Just some minor pumps. Underdosing is the keyword here.
Introduction35 years old financial auditor trying to balance life with three kids and a busy job. Trying to get in some quality time at the gym in the meantime. When I manage to squeeze in some gym time I can use all the supplement help that's out there.
First of all thanks to the SR troops and Clipper for the bounty (oldscool). Everybody uses a pre workout. I have been trying some different ones with more and less satisfaction. Jetfuse being an absolute low. Although I am totally open to using a non healily stimmed pre workout Jetfuse did not do a lot of good overall
Ingredient ProfileThe ingredient profile consists of 4 categories, the first one being vitamins, mostly B12 and some phosphor, sodium and potassium for hydration.
2,25 g of Creapure Creatine
2g of taurine
1,5g of waxy maize
1g of L-arganine
1g of L-Citrulline
1g of Alpha-Ketoglutarate
1,5g of Carnosyn beta alanine
150mg Caffeine Anhydrous
100mg Green Tea Leaf Extract (50% caffeine)
125mg Betaine HCI
125mg N-Acetyl L-Cysteine
5mg BioPerine Black Pepper Fruit Extract (Piper nigrum)
50mg Mucuna Pruriens seed extract powder (60% l-dopa)
5mg Cinnamon Bark Powder (Cinnamomum cassia)
The volumizing blend is nicely balanced in terms of ingredients but mostly underdosed The amount of creatine is too small to be considered a decent dose. The amount of Taurine is fairly dosed. Taurine helps with the cramping., increases blood flow. The suggested dose is between 500mg and 2g. Waxy maize supposedly will restore muscle glycogen and increase absorption of other supplements. 1,5g seems like a small dose. L-Arganine is the amino acid that directly produces nitric oxide. The standard pre workout dose is 3-6g. 1g is heavily underdosed. L-Citrulline supplementation results in reduced fatigue and improved endurance and is considered a better form of L-arganine. L-citrulline supplementation improves the ammonia recycling process and nitric oxide metabolism. For pre workouts, 6-8g is advised. 1g is only a fraction of this. AAKG is a form of L-arganine. Suggested dosage is between 1,5 and 3g, so 1g -again- is not enough.
The energizing blend is not too heavy on the stims. This should not be a problem, and some people actually prefer this. I had some good low stim PWO's before. Most standard PWO carry an amount of 250-300g of caffeine. Carnosyin Increases muscular endurance, increases lean mass. Suggested amount is 2-5 grams, so 1,5 is underdosed. L-Tyrosine is an amino acid that is used to produce noradrenaline and dopamine. I always believed this to be more of a focus ingredient, but with Jetfuse it is listed in the energizing blend. Suggested before exercise is 0,5-2g. So yet again underdosed. Glucuronolactone is used in energy drinks, 100mg is just a fraction. A typical can of red bull contains 600mg.
The recovery blend consists of 1(?)g of bcaa's in a 2:1:1 ratio. A very low dose when stacked against your typical bcaa product which contains on average 5 grams. 1g L-Glutamine for recovery and muscle building. The optimal dose remains debatable, but 1g is a small dose compared to other supplements. 125mg Betaine HCI basically beet root. Suggested is 1,25g twice a day. HCI should absorb better, but 125mg seems a real small amount.
I could go on, but the overall conclusion is that with 20 supplement ingredients, most of them are (heavily) underdosed. This supplement uses a wide array of ingredients, but if you underdose every ingredient, all you get is a whole lot of noting. The effectiveness of this ingredients was as to be expected.
