Jack3d Pre Workout Supplements Ingredient Break-down
Here is a straight line label comparison between all 3 of the Jack3d products. In addition, we have provided our opinions on many of the ingredients included in these pre workouts.
The Original Jack3d Pre Workout Formula
The Original Jack3d formula contains creatine, beta alanine, caffeine and the main focus-point is 1,3 Dimethylamylamine, better known as Methylhexanamine or DMAA.
The compound DMAA was originally studied for its bronchial-dilator effects (improved breathing).
However, in combination with caffeine, DMAA is a strong stimulant that can increase physical performance and caloric burning.
DMAA has been compared to Ephedrine, for its strong stimulant effect on the body. Over-consumption of DMAA can have adverse effects. This can occur due to sudden ingestion, or, multiple applications over the compounds 36 hour half-life in the body. Due to this, it is important to follow labeled instructions when supplementing with the original jack3d formula.
After all, if you could take more and get a better effect – the manufacturer selling the product would be the first to encourage you to take more and buy more often!
Jack3d Advanced Pre Workout Formula
The new Jack3d Advanced formula is much like the original except for the loss of DMAA and addition of Yohimbe and Norcoclaurine HCl. We will focus on these two additional ingredients here.
Yohimbe is a common herb used in many sports supplements as well as male vitality supplements. It’s desired effect is increased endurance through blood pressure modulation and testosterone encouragement. For many individuals, Yohimbe is very effective, however, for a small yet notable population – Yohimbe can cause anxiety. sweaty palms, and heart palpitations.
The other ingredient of interest, Norcoclaurine HCl is very new to the industry and little absolute knowledge is documented. This ingredient is believed to be another broncho-dilator as well as circulatory enhancer, reducing thrombosis. We expect to see more research done in the future regarding Norcoclaurine HCl.
Jack3d Micro Formula
The Jack3d Micro formulation is a brand new take on the jack3d product line, being the most unique product of the 3. Jack3d Micro is a minimalist supplement delivering competitive pump and focus with zero filler and a micro-concentrated dose.
The pump matrix in Jack3d micro is standard to many, containing Arginine complexes and grape seed extract. However, Jack3d micro does not contain creatine or beta-alanine; which can easily be added into ones diet if desired.
