 Pros:
 Cons:
  • Aids In Sexual Performance
  • Aids In Sexual Endurance
  • Possible Placebo Effect
First and foremost VigRX Plus is a sex pill but they outright say that it won't increase your penis by 3-5inches. Thank Goodness! I'm not sure how many girls would wanna try a 12incher if I were to receive that additional 3-5inches. Ha! If you read my MacaPro review I was very open about my "Night Life". I took a break from sexual & libido products on purpose before I tried this (not that I took many before this and MacaPro), but my "wet streak" carried on.

First and foremost VigRX Plus is a sex pill but they outright say that it won't increase your penis by 3-5inches. Thank Goodness!

I took a break from sexual & libido products on purpose before I tried this (not that I took many before this and MacaPro), but my "wet streak" carried on.

Profile: The ingredients of VigRX Plus include Damiana-extract, Epimedium, Ginkgo-Biloba, Asian-Red Ginseng, Bioperine, Hawthorn Berry, Muira Puama, Catuaba Bark Extract and Saw Plametto Berry and the VigRX website does a good job explaining certain ingredients and explaining what they do if you're not familiar with them and explains why some of these ingredients are used. I'll go over a few now but feel free to skip over this

(Korean) Asian-Red Ginseng: A variation of Panax ginseng, which is noted for its ability to improve circulation and blood pressure which can lead to penile hardness and erectile strength.

Damiana: This herb was used by males as an aphrodisiac for hundreds of years getting a reputation for increasing staying power, enhancing penile erection quality, and stimulating more serious, as well as fulfilling male orgasms.

Epimedium: According to LeadingEdge Health researchers are saying this ingredient can be the future Viagra. It has been used in traditional Chinese medicine, since it stimulates androgen hormone production and is good at treating male impotence.

Muria Puama: After fourteen days, 51% of those suffering with erection issues reported an important enhancement, while 62% of those who reported a lack of sexual interest reported a "dynamic" impact on their own sexual libido.

I'm not gonna go over everything but props for no prop blends. A lot of these ingredients are underdosed as far as getting its full effect but research shows that some of these ingredients help w/sexual health in one way or another.

Dosing: I was skeptical about how I should take these little red pills. I was thinking I'd take these on says I was only gonna get some action but that's like playing with fire as it's never a guarantee being single but I decided to be a good lil reviewer and take it 2x a day for 30 days. Not gonna lie, it worked out well.

Effectiveness:

-Improved Sexual Performance: As I said in my last review, I always believe I have to perform. I can't have some basic chick gossiping about how bad or how short I was in bed. I did notice better virility on this but this could have been placebo effect in all honesty.

-Maintain Firm Erection: This has never been a problem for me. More times than not I'm able to go past round 1 no problem but even after round 2 or more I'm still hard as a rock and ready to go. Leading Edge Health also claimed you'll have the sex drive and stamina of a healthy teenager, but I honestly felt I never really dropped off. Like I said I can go after finishing multiple rounds and you know you're good when she's worn out and can't go but you still got more left in the tank. Leaves a lasting impression.

-Aid in Sexual Pleasure and Stimulate Sexual Activity: In a way I can say the pleasure increased but not in a way that it felt so good I would go prematurely. Also when I would go multiple times I noticed that the pleasure or sensation never really dropped. And some girls will state that they feel going so long with a guy just feels like they are just getting drilled and thusly the pleasure for them goes down or they don't enjoy it, but my partners for what its worth stated they always had great sex with me while on this.

-Orgasm So Intense You'll Be Shocked...Then Thrilled!: Ha! This reminds me of the "Scary Movie" movies when Anna Farris would do some guy then gets plastered to the wall or ceiling. Did I have any like this...no, but they were always intense I suppose.

Overall: So did this product help me improve my sexual performance? Well yes because I had a placebo effect non stop. I also believe I have to perform and I've never taken a sex pill like this so I was thinking that maybe if I take this too, I'll perform better. My libido also stayed at an all-time high on this as well.

I will say that I experienced my first pregnancy scare with a gal while taking this. I found a MAIN Friend With Benefits at the time and its 100% my fault but I had a chance to move to Dallas and play for one of the Cowboys Semi-Pro farm teams. Unfortunately I thought she might be pregnant so I did the right thing (in my mind at least) turning them down in case I was a soon to be dad. This had NEVER happened to me before as I always got away with "testing my luck" but we did eventually find out she wasn't pregnant. Lesson learned.

Other than finding this product on Amazon for $30 this product is hard to find elsewhere other than the main retailer site for $69-79. Would I buy this for $30? No. Simply because I don't believe I need it. Did it actually work? Well yes but I'm a big believer that I just had a huge placebo effect going on. We have all tried a product or products and wanted it to work so bad but at the got nothing. I felt like that wasn't the case here. Also at my age I might not be the optimal subject to try this product but with the good and unfortunate of this product I will say I enjoyed run on this.

 Pros:
 Cons:
  • Increased Sex Drive
  • Good Value
  • Increased Libido
  • Increased Endurance & Stamina
  • Not Effective As A Test Booster
  • Did Not Aid In Fat Loss
Perhaps I tried too "HARD" on that. Maybe I was "REACHING" too much. Get it? No? Oh well, In all seriousness thanks to BPS for allowing me to test out Macapro, which is supposed to do a plethora of things for you w/o compromising your health.

Profile: Kalans along with others recently broke down the profile but cheers to BPS for not using a prop blend and using a full dose of Maca Root Extract (20:1 ratio at 500mg).

Profile: Kalans along with others recently broke down the profile but cheers to BPS for not using a prop blend and using a full dose of Maca Root Extract (20:1 ratio at 500mg).

Effectiveness: I'm a little on the fence about this product as a test booster as it did little to nothing for me (that I could feel) in that dept. I've taken my share of test boosters (both good and bad) and I never felt that "ump!", but I will break down what BPS claims this product will do.

Test Boosting: This product is advertised as a Tbooster and perhaps I am not a big responder to Maca in that regards but I noticed no alpha male feeling, aggression, or noticeable facial hair. Yes despite my age I suck at growing facial hair but test boosters that I have responded too in the past helped speed up the growth (though not much) in that dept.

Increase Libido: I feel this is where this product really shined. I'm not gonna lie, I went on a dry spell earlier in the year, which is hard to do in a college town. It's almost like you have to try, which I did as I focused on my new job as a personal trainer and not much else. Needless-to-say my libido was higher than normal but this made me feel like I was in high school.

Support Endurance & Stamina: Once I got rolling with my job I decided to break that spell and man what a fun time I had. Being a former football player and working as a bouncer and personal trainer in a college town opens a lot of doors for people to talk. So with that being said I felt I always had to perform because I've heard too many horrible rumors about ball players or frat guys being 2pump chumps and then spreading the rumors like a wild fire. This def helped me last longer or so I thought and it helped with my endurance in the gym.

Enhance Strength: Since we're on the topic of libido and stamina, I'm sure you guys heard the saying that she ain't a lady unless she's 280. And I'm not denying anything here, but if you really wanna test out the hammy's and glutes and those quads and back strength, try picking up one of these ladies then pin her up against the wall. Unfortunately this did not translate over into the weight room for me.

Promote Positive Mood & Motivation: I'm not sure my motivation increased and I explained I never got that alpha male or aggressive feeling. I did however notice I was in a better state of mind more often than not. It wasn't because I got on a "wet streak" or w/e you wanna call it either, I genuinely felt better about life.

Fat Loss Aid: I can safely say as much as I wanted this to help in that department it did nothing for me.

Price & Overall: You can get BPS MacaPro for $19-24. For just one ingredient that improved my libido, stamina and well being I'll consider that a win. If price were higher I'd give this an average rating for not living up to all the claims (for me at least) but for the price and what I got I'm happy. I wouldn't consider this a go to or staple unless libido and performance in bed is a problem but looking back, I did have a decent run on MacaPro.

  • Cut Doses In Half On Refarmulated Version

  • Too Expensive
And nothing against GNC's overpriced products and pimping of certain products they push to make commission off of. I shopped there for years and gave them hundreds during my time playing football so the jokes on me. Troxyphen Elite is billed as a dual action product; as a test booster and a fat burnerbut Truderma sold themselves short when this product can actually help boost N.O. levels too.

And nothing against GNC's overpriced products and pimping of certain products they push to make commission off of. I shopped there for years and gave them hundreds during my time playing football so the jokes on me. Troxyphen Elite is billed as a dual action product; as a test booster and a fat burnerbut Truderma sold themselves short when this product can actually help boost N.O. levels too.

This product claimes to "Raise Free Test Levels", "Boost Lean Mass", Decrease Body Fat", and "Boost Nitric Oxide", so I'll just break my effectiveness down into these subcategories and provide what it did or didn't do.

Ingredients: Here is a breakdown of what Truderma shows Troxyphen Elite to contain:
Testosterone Boosting Blend Totalling 500mg
Testofen 300mg
L-Arginine
Tribulus Terrestris
Potency Wood Extract
Saw Palmetto
Muria Pauma
Thermogenic Blend 200mg
Caffeine 150mg
Green Coffee Extract 50mg
Nitric Oxide Boost Blend 700mg
GKG (Glutamine Aplpha-Ketoglutarate
OKG ( Ornithine)
Carnosyn Beta Alanine
L-Citruline Malata
A-AKG) Arginine alphaketoglutarate
Growth Activating Complex 100mg
Alphasize ( Alpha-Glycerol Phosphoryl Choline ( A-GPC)
It also contains 4mg of Bioperine to help aid absorption

Effectiveness:

Raise Free test Levels: I am usually a responder to Testofen but I never got that alpha male feeling. I never felt perkier or more aggressive and my libido remained the same. The reviews I've read all over the net generally praised this product in the libido department. I'm sure this is thanks to the Testofen along with the other ingredients in the test profile which don't really boost test and possibly the N.O. ingredients. I personally felt this did nothing for me in either area.

Build Lean Muscle: During my run and after my run on Troxy Elite I noticed no real increase in lean muscle other than the norm. I was on a hypertrophy/ muscle building workout program and eating for that goal but I noticed nothing special vs when I wasn't on this product. No extra cuts, thickness or pump, which leads me to

Boost Nitric Oxide: This did little for me pump wise but I can't really pan it for that. During my football playing weight, higher bodyfat when I'm bulking or lower bodyfat when I'm trimming weight I've never really responded to pump products.

Fat Burning: None! Personally I hate when companies use caffeine as their 1st or main ingredient for thermo's, but that's just me. We all know what caffeine does, but wait there's more. You can't forget about the 50mg of Green Tea Extract. I actually like supplementing with green tea when I'm cutting (but never as my main product or go to ingredient). They we're better off labeling this as a T-Booster, N.O. Booster and Energy Supplement.

Energy and Marketing: I've never taken anything higher than basic marketing in college and perhaps I'm outta my element here but this got panned fat burning wise. Perhaps if Truderma (as I stated above) labeled this as an energy product instead of a fat burning one this would get more respect because I along with others noticed more energy & stamina upon taking it. I believe 150mg of Caffeine is equivalent to 1 large coffee and stacked with the green tea and me being stim sensitive, sometimes I would take 2caps before workouts and be golden. That's only for 2caps however as it is recommended you take 4caps daily which I did doubling everything by 2
Even the spray version of this is being labeled by reviewers as a great energy product across popular retail stores and sites online. Take that for what it's worth, I will note that the original Troxyphen by Truderma had 3mg of Yohimbe HCL and Synephrine Caprylae (Bitter Orange) which may have faired better in the energy and fat burning department. To replace that with green tea extract; I get it some people don't like Yohimbe but why cheat yourselves Truderma. You would be better off going testosterone, nitric oxide, and energy route.

Price/Overall: Note* I'm not reviewing the original version but as of today I noticed that on Truderma's website they reformulated both the original product and the Elite version adding 2mg of Black Pepper Extract to the original removing the Yohimbe and lowering the caffeine down to 75mg per 2caps instead of 150mg per 2caps and removing green tea all together. So much for energy now. They lowered the Bioperine and did some stuff with their N.O. properties but at this moment its just getting frustrating tryna figure out what exactly Truderman wants to do with this product.
IMO there are better hybrid products out there if you are looking for test boosting and energy or test boosting and fat burning and for a whole lot cheaper too. I'd never pay 69.99 a product which gave me good energy but that's about it, especially if they are cutting the energy product ingredients in half or out all together.

I'd like to thank NutraBio for the opportunity to try this product out. During my off-season football training I suffered what some would call Jumpers knee (if you don't know what it is look it up) which wasn't due to my excessiveness of box jumping over the years but the boneheaded move I made where I jumped a 46"box and like an idiot jumped backwards onto the ground and tweaked my knee after finishing. I also suffered a dislocated shoulder doing tree work trying to break or He-Man heavy ass tree limbs knocking my shoulder outta place backwards then me immediately popping it back forwards ...

I also suffered a dislocated shoulder doing tree work trying to break or He-Man heavy ass tree limbs knocking my shoulder outta place backwards then me immediately popping it back forwards and almost throwing up. Idiotic some would say, but I'm just sayin, I'm still here. Where's that tree branch at?As much as I knocked em, I got chiropractic help for the shoulder but I figured this product would be perfect for my knee and eventual elbow issues.

Formula: I'm going to use Durden's reasoning and say I'm not going to list the whole profile because I'm not a D-Bag either. At least I don't think I am! Seriously though a bunch of other guys have done a great job of breaking down the profile and one of the things I love about Nutrabio is that they rarely if ever hide anything and make it easy to find a products information. This profile is solid but the only thing (and BoSox alluded to this) is that it took a while for it to build up in my system, which leads me to my next point

Effectiveness: I considered this a huge failure for a long time. One thing I left out earlier that I'm getting back to was that I had extremely dry joints and I'm not sure why, as this never happened to me before. Not only was my bum knee dry but both knees and elbows were dry. Stuff like Skullcrushers or any hardcore tricep exercise; it just could not be done properly for me. So I had to stick with Rope Pushdowns for reps which bothered me too and heavy kickbacks. As far as my knees, I hate to be one of those guys to say I couldn't squat due to my knees, but my depth just was not there. Anything past 250-265 just felt HORRIBLE and I had to rely more on box squats, and Front or Goblet squats if I wanted depth.

So how did this product help me? Well it really didn't, at least not until I got to a week and a half left of the bottle and even then it only help calm the joint pain somewhat; the inflammation was still there. I never really take NSAID's because I didn't want to take em daily and possibly build up a tolerance or some type of toxicity, but I feel like that would have helped soothed the pain and inflammation better even if only temporary. It wasn't until I was done with the bottle that I could start to do some of those tricep movements again but the inflammation was still slightly there. About 2-3wks later the inflammation started to creep back in.

That said I eventually broke down and bought some disgusting tasting cissus powder. Within a week the cissus did what it took Extreme Joint Care to do in a month and then more.

Overall: I'm not knocking this product. I never expected it to cure me though that would have been awesome, but I did realistically expect a bit more a bit sooner. Still though, I will admit that it felt good to do some lifts I was able to do pain-free towards and after the end of the bottle so THAT IS A PLUS!

Some people have found this for 29 bucks but I see this running around 34.99 more times than not. If this would have worked a little better for me then I would gladly pay this and realistically something like joint pain and joint inflammation was a fair test and this product passed but barely. NutraBio makes some great products and others love this one but I just did not do it for me.

Hey guys long time no see. This, along with other reviews are long over-do so before I start I just wanna give a shout out to Perfomix for hooking me up with a bottle of their ISO 9:2:2 Multi-Phase BCAA. Is that still the cool thing you kids do, give shoutouts? Or is it lame now since everyone in the community does it now? Lol. Seriously though, this product lasted me roughly 30 days and I was graced with the smooth flavor of Punch Berry Ice. I'm not gonna lie, the beads caught me off guard at first but after a couple of tries I fell in love with the product and loved how the beads felt..uh...
Hey guys long time no see. This, along with other reviews are long over-do so before I start I just wanna give a shout out to Perfomix for hooking me up with a bottle of their ISO 9:2:2 Multi-Phase BCAA. Is that still the cool thing you kids do, give shoutouts? Or is it lame now since everyone in the community does it now? Lol. Seriously though, this product lasted me roughly 30 days and I was graced with the smooth flavor of Punch Berry Ice. I'm not gonna lie, the beads caught me off guard at first but after a couple of tries I fell in love with the product and loved how the beads felt..uh..popped..exploded (giggity) in my mouth Moving on from that I will dive a little deeper into the results I got from this product.

Ingredient Prof/ Effectiveness: There aren't too many Intras that I can say helped me push thru a workout consistently. Not knocking the other BCAA products I've taken and have chosen not to name but out of all of them USPLabs Modern BCAA and NutraBio BCAA 5000 stand out to me, along with this product. As far as effectiveness goes I'd rank ISO BCAA a notch above BCAA 5000 yet a notch below Modern BCAA. That's just MY personal pref and opinion but Top 3 ain't bad.

As far as ingredients go, That sheriff guy Blade broke down the profile pretty well but to add to my effectiveness point, this product features a 9:2:2 profile and utilizes Terra Intelligent Dosing beadlets. ISO BCAA also contains Citrulline Malate 2:1, Betaine Anhydrous, L-Glutamine, a Hydration/Electrolyte System and AstraGin (for better absorption). So it's not hard to figure out why this helped me push and perform better during my workout, especially during the middle and latter stages.

Price: Though this product is top three for me, it ranks near the middle of the row for price. I almost said bottom and actually changed my mind upon writing this. For $49 you can get a 30serving tub of this. I'm sure you can find it a few dollars cheaper than $50 but at this point it averages around the same. We always say you get what you pay for or maybe we penalize a crappy product for being too high or even a good product that's too high. When compared to Modern BCAA which I've seen as low 19.99 for 30servings and BCAA 5000 which runs around the mid $20range for 60+ servings this price falls short. But they include some extra goodies in this which actually work so I'd imagine that due to that we end up paying a bit more.

Conclusion: Price aside, (which I would label as a tad expensive but given what's "given" in there I'd call it fair too) this product performed tremendously for me. Mixed with cold water and ice in your shaker and you're good to go in the gym. If you can afford it I urge you guys to give this one a try. Thanks again for allowing me to try this Performix; Definitely a top tier BCAA product.

Perhaps Campus Protein can generate the same success Cyto Sport did with Muscle Milk Collegiate or Gatorade did with their lesser known but super expensive protein shake, then later their pre & post drinks geared for athletes.

Introduction

Being a former collegiate athlete I was intrigued by taking a product geared for college athletes. Perhaps Campus Protein can generate the same success Cyto Sport did with Muscle Milk Collegiate or Gatorade did with their lesser known but super expensive protein shake, then later their pre & post drinks geared for athletes.

When playing college or any upper level sport you really have to be weary of what you put in your body. With all the claims of "all natural", or can't fail, won't fail a drug test, oh and the promising results that are too good to be true it's tough not to resist. You want to get an edge on not just your opponent but the guy lining up across from you in practice. But not only do you want to get an advantage on the guy lining up in front of you in practice you want to get an advantage over the guy fighting for that #1 and #2 spot at your position. Everyone wants the fame & glory but that desire has led to many people on t.v. and hell even players at Mizzou being questioned by the media, the head coach, head trainer and PR Rep asking "Well how the **** did you not know what you put in your body?"

Ingredient Profile

The Good: I won't go over the profile as Ron broke it down but the ingredient list is nothing flashy, which if geared for college students who average around the age of 18-25 (and should be careful of what they put in their bodies at that age anyway) is a good thing. You have your creatine, beta alanine, betaine, L-Amino's and caffeine. The NCAA has a ridiculously long list of ingredients that you can't take and the Big 12 (whom we were apart of before joining the SEC) has their own list of things you can't take which may not be banned by the NCAA but is by them, so you had to be weary. Nothing on here can get you banned except caffeine but that has to be taken in a ridiculous amount.

The Bad: Even though you get a full disclosure of the ingredients which is a MAJOR plus, even with 2scoops some of the ingredients still are underdosed. An example; 2 scoops of Fuel would equal 3g of creatine (1.5g if you take 1scoop obviously). I guess if you were to supplement with creatine, beta alanine, etc on their own you could lower your dosage on those products since this has it in there but that's never usually the case or purpose of many pre-workouts.

Pump

I was neverone to get a pump when I was younger. As I got older, I learned more about sodium and cleaned up my diet (to an extent) so I experienced it more but Fuel gave me a subpar one AT BEST. Not a big deal for me in the past and its def not a deal breaker for me now.

Energy/Taste

I lumped these 2 together because once I got the taste of Jungle Juice in my mouth I knew it was go time! Perhaps those late night afterbars or postgame parties w/Jungle Juice reared me into thinking it was go time lol, but the energy was consistently good; not the best but pretty good.

----Endurance----
Never once did I recall fatiguing or not wanting to finish a workout while on this. Not even during my 2nd leg day. But I never recall not wanting to leave the gym either like some pre-workouts give. I pushed thru my workout but the desire to just stay and stay and grind wasn't present. Not a big deal at all, just stating that this got the job done as I got nothing more, nothing less.

Price

I've seen this online for 24.99-28.99. I wouldn't mind paying $25 for 30servings. Not that $29-30 is too much but when tax and shipping is involved I hate paying more than a dollar per serving, especially if you have to double dose which I did occasionally on leg day. Still though, the results I got from this and the lower end price are not bad at all.

Conclusion

Lucky me that I'm not stim-tolerant so the caffeine amount which was 180mg was about perfect for me. That's not the case for all as this product got bashed by some of my colleague for not even being effective at 2scoops. The saving grace was that 1scoop did the trick most times for me and I consider it a major bonus that there was a full disclosure of ingredients. I personally look forward to what else Campus Protein comes out with in the future.

But before we dive into the review lets go over what Myokem claims this product will do for us. According to the bottle, this product is a high performance myotropic agent resulting in lean muscle mass and strength.

According to the bottle, this product is a high performance myotropic agent resulting in lean muscle mass and strength. They go on to explain that this product is designed for those seeking to accelerate muscle gains and strength.

So there’s nothing outta the norm here in regards to products like these but the question remains, did Manitropin live up to as promised. I ran this product for a little over a month and I will tie these claims into my effectiveness section.

Effectiveness: 9.0
Increased appetite: I will admit 2 things here. #1 This product made me really hungry. Really REALLY hungry! I mean all the time…ALL THE TIME! I will also admit that my diet had been slacking ever since the holiday season. Maybe I’ve been consuming too many simple carbohydrates. Maybe I stopped worrying about portion size as much. Maybe I was tryna put on a little size so I justified it by saying that’s okay. Whatever I gotta tell myself to feel better about becoming a fat slob right, lol? All jokes aside, even though you really can’t out train a poor diet I still trained hard as hell while supplementing with this.

Increased lean muscle mass: Despite not being able to out train poor diet I must have been doing something right and I’ll give props to Magnitropin because I was consistently getting complimented on how I was looking good, or how I was looking huge, or how big my biceps were. People were even asking me what I was taking. No lie; I know you hear this same stuff for other products by people who might have gotten paid off or promised whatever but I’m not getting paid for this and I’m not gonna Bull**** you guys either. But to make things worse, these compliments all came from guys. Yeesh!
Nah it wasn’t that bad. Even though I would have loved for some of these compliments to come from the opposite sex, these came from my fellow lifters, which, if I had to choose would be the 2nd best thing. I did notice that physique looked more muscular, so I plan on running this again (with a stricter diet) hopefully when the price drops, which is another issue on its own.

Increased Strength: I felt this product also increased my strength but I can’t give all the credit to this product. In my Noxipro review I talked about taking my infamous deload week because I felt I was going too hard for too long and needed a break. I spoke about feeling refreshed afterwards and there were countless days I told my workout partner, “Man I’m feeling strong today.” I didn’t break any major PR’s but I did feel like a bad motha (shut yo mouth) and I will give credit to this product. I will also give props to my pwo at the time and my deloading as its only fair. If I had to put it into terms, I’m close to par with the strength I had in 2013 and getting closer to my 395lb bench press PR I had before I tore my pectoral muscle that same year training for Arena League when I was offered a contract and training to break 400 on bench which led to a torn pectoral muscle and 2yrs of sucking on bench and dumbbell bench.

Increased exercise performance: Which leads me to this point; I didn’t break any major PR’s but I still broke some and it was mainly due to my increased performance or increased endurance. The PR’s I broke may have been by 5-10lbs but I was bustin out a lot more reps than I normally would have.

Increased libido: Man oh Man! Nuff Said.

Overall Effectiveness: Part of me wants to say I never really felt that umph from this and you’re probably wondering with the strength gains and PR’s how canyou say that?! It’s weird and if I had I would compare this to the silent yet deadly type. I never really got that alpha male feeling but deep down (and like I stated above) I felt like a bad motha in the gym sometimes. I couldn’t really tell when this stuff kicked in… but like I also stated earlier there were just some days I felt really strong and my libido was thru the roof. This may not have been in your face like other anabolics but my results don’t lie. Overall I’d give this a 9.3

Dosing: I followed the directions and took 3 capsules 2x daily for six consecutive days except for off days when I just took 3caps which extended my bottle life a little over a month.

Value: This stuff runs around the $48.99 – $55.00 range. That’s pretty expensive in my book and even though I did get good, a slow steady result (which is what you want at the end of the day) I feel like I could have easily attained this thru stricter diet along with my training. I would also attribute my strength gains to busting my ass over 2yrs and working my way back to a somewhat respectable bench but there is something about this product. That is why we buy supplements, to speed up the process and that Magitropin did. So $55 and good results I’ll be fair and give it a 7.0

Overall I will say that Myokem produced another superb and consistent product. Like I said, the results were slow and steady, and despite not being able to tell when this fully kicked in, when I was dialed in I was in. I’d like to see the price dropped and price was what drove the overall score on this down but I suppose in this case you get what you pay for. If you can afford this I definitely suggest you give this product a try.

Noxipro, my oh my, look how far we have come. Before I start this review I want to state that I have never taken a full tub of the original DMAA based Noxipro but when I looked it up I found things like, “Is Noxipro the best Preworkout out there?” Or,“Is Noxipro better than that…Other Popular DMAA Preworkout?” You know which one I’m talking about. Some said yes, some said no, but oh how good the 09-10 years were for pre-workouts.

Some said yes, some said no, but oh how good the 09-10 years were for pre-workouts. Enough of memory lane, CTD followed suit like most companies with a DMAA-less reformulation which produced mixed to less than stellar results. Once again the DMAA-less products weren’t bad but they weren’t what the original was either. And so we have Noxipro, or New Noxipro.

Profile: 8

Reigner went over the ingredient profile so I’ll skip that but I was tempted to give this a 7.5-7.8 because of the simple fact that this is a prop blend and like most blends you may need more than one scoop to get the recommended dosage or certain ingredients. I however bumped it up to an 8 due to the effectiveness of this product. Plain and simple, it worked. The only thing that threw me off was some of the Fruit Punch labels which were labeled differently. Some said they had 40 servings and 216g while others said they it had 40 servings and 292g. Perhaps the 292g was the old formula (and if it is I apologize) but when I searched new Noxipro I saw a mixture of both pictures despite the fact these sites were talking about the new version of this.

Effectiveness: 9.0

Once again I will state that plain and simple, this stuff works. I will note that I took a deload week (do people still do that?) during my run on this and I also dropped all supps for about 2wks just to let my body recover. Prior to the deload this stuff still hit me pretty well as I felt my muscular strength and power output were up and my mental focus was sharp as the bottle claims. As far as the NO aspects and reduced lactic acid levels/muscular fatigue, I’d say that they were subpar at best. However after laying off the supps and deloading this product really shined for me. I did notice a reduction in muscular fatigue but I can’t give all the credit to this as I felt refreshed after my deload but when I took this, my strength and focus went thru the roof versus when I went into a training session taking nothing. It’s only fair to test these things out.
I will also note that I’m not a stim junkie so I don’t have a real high tolerance so just about anything that’s not pixie dusted will hit me in some manner; Some better than others obviously. This product took about 20-25min to hit me and each and every time it gave me good sense of well-being. Not in a calm way which I wouldn’t want before I attack the iron anyway but it gave me a confident sense like I’m about to dominate my gym session and do better than I did yesterday in the gym.

Like Reinger said, the energy was long lasting and I never crashed but it would stick with me well after my workout on days like Shoulder/Arms or Chest vs Heavier Leg and Back days. I also bumped it down somewhat due to the fact that I did get a minor jittery or anxiety feeling off this. Remember OxyElite Pro (original) and the anxiety feeling it would give you sometimes? Well it was nothing like that but I did get a “slight slight” glimpse which only hit me 2-3x and but stood out to the point of being unpleasurable.

Value: 9.5

I only needed one scoop of this despite not getting a recommended dosage of everything listed in the prop blend and it hit me and was pretty consistent each and every time. I found this as low as 26-27 bucks for 40 servings. The only reason I didn’t give this a 10 is because you can find other pre-workouts out there in the lower $20 range for 40+ servings as well. Whether they are as effective as this or not is a different topic but I’m just basing this (value rating) off of my humble opinion.

Overall: 8.8

The fruit punch was a bit overbearing but manageable. There were always a few clumps at the bottom but it was no big deal as I was save a little bit of liquid in my glass, swirl it and the clumps around and down it on one last gulp.

Overall this was not a bad pre-workout at all. Great at enhancing strength and mental focus and upper-echelon energy but it did lack (for me) in other areas that were claimed. I would have given the effectiveness a higher grade because as I stated above, this product hit me every time, but it seemed to hit me better on some days and not as hard on others. I still got great results nonetheless. I don’t know how this compared to the original as I only had a sample or 2 but I definitely recommend trying this affordable product out for yourself.

Sorry for the delay on this. I received 20-25 sample packs of this along with a tub and I used all the sample packs 1st only to receive less than stellar results. Well, not less than stellar, but nothing compared to the hype that was being written about this pre-workout. To be fair, I had just come off a great run with the PreOG and sampled with random sample packets afterwards so my adrenal glands were fatigued and I could tell. I would take Nitramine, pop in my earbuds and try to go to work but that energy and explosiveness would fade soon leaving me with focus (pretty good focus I admit...

I would take Nitramine, pop in my earbuds and try to go to work but that energy and explosiveness would fade soon leaving me with focus (pretty good focus I admit) but that’s it. I suppose that was enough because I was determined that whether I was “feelin it” or not I was gonna finish these workouts.

Ingredient profile: A
Prop Blend aside this profile is legit and has all the makings of a profile that just should make any one of us kill it each and every time. I took that dreaded 30 day break of cycling off everything, pwo’s included and I felt much more refreshed so I gave this a shot and had good, but not killer workouts.

Effectiveness: B-
I considered breaking this down into 2 categories (before my break and after my break) but it’d be unfair to do so. I was eager to try this but dumb to take this while being fatigued so I will break this down into some sub-categories of what Myokem claims what Nitramine will give you.

• More muscle mass and less fat : I did indeed gain more muscle mass and lose fat but I give more credit to my workout plan where my goal was to do so as I was working out 5-6days a week, hitting legs 2x a week and keeping my diet in check. I’m not gonna discount this as there are some ingredients in here I’m sure which help aid in those results

• Increased strength and endurance: I honestly believe that my strength and endurance went up tremendously when I took the Pre-OG pwo than it did on this. However to come back from 30 days of nothing, I feel my strength stayed on par with this. I was eating more so that may have something to do with it but my endurance on this was incredible.

• Increased testosterone: It’s impossible to tell. To be fair and unbiased I didn’t dig deep and find the claims Myokem promised until after I finished this so I had no idea this would even do that.

• Super human mental clarity: I wouldn’t call it super human but I would call it better than most. Some may roll their eyes when comparing the 2 ingredient profiles but if you read my Pre-OG review then you would think that that pre gave me the super human mental clarity. I’m by no means saying that Pre-OG is a better pwo than this but this shows that what works best for some may not work best for others & vice-versa.

Value: A-
I only give it and A- because you can find some good pwo’s out there in the mid to upper $20 range or pwo’s that cost just as much as this but have more servings. But for the price, profile, need for only 1 scoop and consistency of this product this blows Pre-OGs 20 servings per container outta the water but falls slightly below the value of the others I mentioned at the beginning of this section.

Overall: B

In my opinion this didn’t live up to the hype but it was consistent. The energy, endurance and focus were good (with the focus getting a slight nod above the others) but none were great. The energy was hit-and-miss and sometimes the energy, endurance and focus never really synced, but when it did OH MAN! Speaking of endurance I’d compare my endurance on this to that which I got off of Jack3d Mirco and synced with the focus, this just made me want to push on even more even when the energy wasn’t there. For all you guys that like flavor and stuff, the dragonberry flavor was unique yet refreshing and never got old but beware of that cough upon opening. That did get old. Oh that cough!

Props to Chris "BeastMode" Jones, Vince "Swole Nerd" Garza and Petey(nickname withheld) for hooking me up with this to try. Prior to trying this I had been off preworkouts for a good 2+ months so I figured I could give a good assessment on this product.

I mean come on, guys who gave themselves nicknames, used terms like GAF and Holla at Ya Boy... it kinda reminded me of, well, me lol! I live in a college town and things like that help you stick out in among the opposite sex and in a big group situations and I applaud these guys for using that approach to catch your attention and draw you in.

Content:
Prior to trying this I did my research and I noticed that this product got some backlash from SR due to the profile being simple (which isn't bad) but possibly overpriced and having only 20servings. Comments like, "I could make that exact profile easily" and "I would never buy it because I have all the ingredients which would last 3x as long."

I do agree, it is quite simple but I do applaud them for fully disclosing the supplement facts and not hiding behind prop blends. You have
5g of Creapure Creatine Mono
3.2g of Carnosyn Beta Alanine
1.5g of AgmaPure Agmatine Sulfate & L-Carnitine L-Tartrate (respectively)
500mg of N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine
250mg of Caffeine Anhydrous
20mg of Higenamine HCL
And a plethora of your B Vitamins

Effectiveness: 9.5/10
The Good: This product worked! I'm not a stim junkie and happy about that because simple works for me. EVERYTIME I took this I got a confident maybe cocky sense of arrogance that I was unstoppable and was gonna kill the weights. It sounds kinda lame but it was true. I'd drink it and leave immediately or drink it on the way over because I adjusted my dosing (and I'll explain why), turn up the music in my car, pop in my earbuds in the gym and Go Get It! The weather is getting warmer which I love, but I also love it for the fact that the ladies are, well dressing for the occasion ;-) and more are starting to show up at the gym. I trained 5days a week so this lasted me exactly one month but it was a hellava month and even though I did not PR on anything except for Box Jumps (because I still incorporated those football/sport aspects), I lifted heavier than I normally would, added a 2nd leg day to my split, and lifted weights by myself that I probably should of had a spotter for. Let there be a woman training in the same area I was or watching me train and I felt I had to put on a clinic but that may have been some of that cocky arrogance I spoke on. As of writing this I will admit that my CNS is feeling it a bit fatigued and I had to take an extra day of rest to recover from my month of hell.

The Bad: I just hated that this only lasted for 20 workouts and I kinda got addicted to this feeling I NEEDED it, especially now that I'm done with it. But that's more of a value and personal issue.

The Ugly: This stuff made me go to the bathroom. It was bad. Someone made a comment in the past about never trustin a fart again for a different supplement and well, that rang true for me for this.

Taste: 9.3/10
Which leads me right into taste. I said I adjusted my dosing and that was purely for taste wise but it did help stall the bathroom issues. They said it is rated GAF! Well I will say that smelled GAF but taste wise it was kind of disappointing and more tart than anything. That however was when I took it with 8oz of water but I loved the results I was getting and didn't wanna dilute the effects so I never bothered to increase the water. One day I accidentally had around 12-13oz of water in my shaker and poured a scoop in there and low & behold it tasted much better. It also hit me much slower which was GOOD because instead of being so amped in the car, I'd enjoy the taste of this in the car ride over to the gym and this would hit me after I finished my warmup. So taste in 8oz of water would be a B- from me if I had to grade it, unless you happen to like tart or sour lemonade better than sweet. Taken with 12-15oz the taste was much smoother and I'm happy about that because I loved the idea of a Strawberry Lemonade flavor. The bathroom issues didn't affect me as much either. Sometimes it would hit me mid-workout but I did a good job of ignoring it. After the gym, that's a different story lol. Overall I wouldn't rate it GAF but I would give it a solid A.

Value:7/10 & Overall:9/10
Effectiveness wise, this feeling kind of reminded me of the feeling I got from Jack3d Micro; more confidence and pushing myself past failure. Jack3d Micro averages out at $34-36 but had 35+ servings and I found the effectiveness of that tapering the longer I took it. I'm not sure if the effectiveness would taper if it lasted longer but boy do I wish it lasted longer than just one month. Like I said this got addicting which is good but mentally can be bad. Obviously if you train 3-4days a week it will last longer. This does provide 20 true servings, a lot but not all pre's provide 30+ servings but are not true as they require you to take 2scoops. I feel value wise this could be a top tier pre (like very few) that offer 30 true servings and cost around $28-30 (or lower) if they lowered the price slightly and increased the serving. Until then I'll give the value a generous 7/10. It was overpriced but the saving grace was that it worked each and every time.

In closing, this product worked well for me and I hope they drop the price or increase the content. If you love taste then tamper with the amount of liquid you use, but this product, though simple is definitely top 3 for me.

And since we're giving out nick names here, this product has been approved by Cam "TheGrahamCrackerSuperSaiyan"McWright.

All kidding aside thanks for reading guys
