Titan is part of the Olympus series of supplements from US supplements company, Chaos and Pain, best known for their use of mythology inspired advertising to sell products.
Titan Energy Boosting Pre Workout may help improve your workouts with the addition of some ingredients that raise the body’s NO levels, but we can’t see this having the advertised fat burning effect. The touted ephedra replacement Halostachine may turn out to be effective but it requires further human clinical testing and requires more information about what constitutes an optimum serving size. At the time of writing this ingredient has mainly been tested on guinea pigs. Overall, this supplement seems a little underpowered and all a bit unproven. One good point is that it probably will not cause too many side effects in most users.
Potential side effects may include jitteriness, anxiety, insomnia, muscle tremors, salivating, restlessness, increased heart rate, tingling, and flushing.
Titan is expensive. Buy from the Chaos and Pain website and it costs $39.99 for a 375g tub (13.22oz) which contains 25 servings.
Shipping is estimated at the point of sale and costs around $6.50 for US delivery.
You can also buy Titan Energy via Amazon for the same price.
As ever with Chaos and Pain, this supplement claims to be the most powerful and best supplement that money can buy but when you look behind the hype, it is all just disappointing. This supplement looks OK and some users may like it but there really is nothing special about it. Many of the ingredients are underpowered, some are unproven and overall it is all just a little bit lacklustre and ordinary.
It may work as a pre-workout supplement but we cannot see this having much of a fat burning effect, so unless you are going to use it to give a slight boost to exercise performance, there is not a great deal going for it. In our opinion, experienced bodybuilders will find it too underpowered and if you are new to this world, a supplement that contains higher levels of Creatine will probably give you far more benefit.
We do not recommend Chaos and Pain Titan Energy Boosting Workout to the Watchdog readers.
Titan Energy Boosting Pre Workout is a powdered supplement that you add to water and drink. According to the product information, it is designed as a pre-workout but will function equally well as a fat burner for weight loss. It comes in four flavours: Bombsicle, Lemon/Lime, Peach/Mango, and Watermelon.
Titan contains Beta Alanine, Citrulline Malate, Creatine, and Arginine, natural substances that increase nitric oxide in the body. Nitric Oxide relaxes the blood vessels so increases blood flow throughout the body, helping stamina and endurance. Creatine is also involved in the muscle building process in the body. There are also some energy enhancing ingredients such as Glucoronolactone as well as Caffeine, Theobromine, and Yerba Mate.
The Titan advertising singles out Halostachine as a principle component, although there is only 50mg per serving. Halostachine is a natural alkaloid which has been isolated from an Asian plant called Halostachys Caspica. This natural chemical, also known as N-methylphenylethanolamine is close in molecular structure to Ephedrine, the extract now banned in supplements because of the risk to health including strokes and heart attacks.
Like Ephedrine, the idea is that Halostachine will function as a powerful stimulant. It is also a beta adrenergic which means it relaxes muscles in the airways making breathing easier. Check out the ingredients list to find out more.
Chaos and Pain is a US company. An address is not provided but there is a US phone number and you can contact the company on social media such as via the Facebook Page.
When Chaos and Pain first came on the scene we were amused by the company’s wacky advertising style; all that mythology and horror combined with bodybuilding is not something you see every day.
However this company has an extensive line of supplements, some of which look ok, that is, once you get past the teenage boy’s bedroom style of advertising! However many are fairly indifferent or unproven and overall it looks like a mixed bag when it comes to their quality and functionality.
Titan is part of the Olympus range of supplements (there is also the more grisly sounding Cannibal range). All supplements are aimed at bodybuilding so ranges seem interchangeable.
We covered another Olympus supplement in a previous review on Mercury Extended BCAA Complex.
According to the product information, you can use this supplement as a pre-workout supplement and as a general fat burner. It is described as, “A thermogenic, fat burning, energizing pre-workout formula. “
The advertising asks the question “Is there anything that works like Ephedra?”
Naturally, Chaos and Pain have an answer,
Yes! Halostachine is a beta adrenergic receptor agonists just like Ephedra!! And when the beta receptors are stimulated, Caffeine and Theobromine tend to have an ENHANCED effect.
According to the product information, all the ingredients in Titan are clinically proven to work. This is not strictly true.
You may find that this supplement helps increase energy levels and improves your stamina and your sports performance up to a point, but we can’t see that this supplement will be as good as the advertising claims.
It seems a little underpowered with Beta Alanine and Citrulline Malate not delivered in sufficient quantities, and although we like Creatine Monohydrate, most evidence suggests that loading with high quantities (20g) of Creatine for a week before you start a regime is more effective for boosting performance than taking low quantities of Creatine as here on a regular basis.
Many people are touting Halostachine as a replacement to Ephedra but although this does look promising and much safer, as yet there is no clear information about an effective dose. So if you are expecting a strong stimulant buzz plus enhanced fat burning, there are no real guarantees here that it will work. That said this supplement does contain other stimulants so you may notice these.
It would not be a Chaos and Pain supplement if it did not contain an off the wall ingredient. In this case, it is Creatinol o Phosphate (COP). This is supposed to improve endurance but there is very little known about the possible effects or the optimum dose. It is not the same as Creatine. It may have a cardioprotective effect but it does not seem to be easily absorbed by the body.
Serving size is equal to 1 x 15g scoop
Titan may cause side effects. This supplement does contain caffeine and other stimulants that may cause:
When tested on guinea pigs, Halostachine caused stimulant side effects that may also affect human users such as:
Beta Alanine is known to cause:
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Speak to your doctor if you have an underlying medical condition or are taking prescription medication.
There is a handful of independent customer reviews on Amazon USA. In general, customers seem quite positive.
Glad I bought this stuff. Gives me the focus and drive to get my workouts done. No crash either. Flavor isn’t bad. I go heavy with the water, just how i mix my preworkouts. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
Titan is not the most stimulant heavy pre-workout there is. But then I am also pretty tolerant to stimulants so I can’t really say much haha. The pumps that Titan brings are ridiculous!!!!!!! It makes your skin feel tight as if someone is blowing you up like a balloon! I highly recommend this product and stacking this with permaswole…be ready for the road map that your veins will make!!
Not everyone is satisfied,
I was very dissatisfied with this product energy focus stamina and pumps were not there would not ever buy again matter of fact wouldn’t even waste my time finishing the rest of the pre w/o into the 2nd week
Chaos and Pain claim to offer a 100% guarantee but provide no information about how to get your money back should you be dissatisfied. You could try contacting the company via Facebook, email, or phone (855 798 6039). But don’t get your hopes up! We feel it is unlikely you will get a refund.
You can buy Titan Energy Boosting Pre Workout via the official Chaos and Pain website. It is also on sale from Amazon USA.
