ALTIUS comes from Jacked Factory, a US based supplements company primarily focused on body building and hardcore weight loss supplements. Although the company sell from the official website, ALTIUS is mainly sold via Amazon, judging by over 900 customer feedback comments for this supplement alone.
Jacked Factory ALTIUS is a pre workout energy supplement in Mixed Berry flavour, that you drink 30 minutes before your workout. The idea is that it will contribute to muscle building and enhance energy levels, stamina, and pumps, and some users genuinely seem to like it. It contains some good ingredients and it may have some effect, although it is not going to give you “endless endurance” as claimed.
Not so good is the high level of positive fake reviews which is a sales ploy we have come to expect from Jacked Factory. In addition, we have concerns about the likelihood of getting a refund via the so called money-back guarantee. You are also advised to avoid coffee and other sources of caffeine while using this supplement.
Some customers have mentioned side effects including; stomach pains, pins and needles, dry mouth, tingling sensation, vomiting, and diarrhoea.
Other side effects may include; headache, heartburn, insomnia, dizziness, jitteriness, increased heart rate, stomach cramps, and dehydration.
ALTIUS is averagely priced compared with other supplements on the market.
Buy direct from the Jacked Factory website and it costs $35.99 for a 14.3 oz tub (406.6g) which is enough for 20 servings.
If you subscribe to the Jacked Factory mailing list via Facebook Messenger, you receive a 10% discount off your order.
Shipping charges are applied at the point of sale. Shipping is not free to US customers unless your order is more than $49.00, or $149.00 for international customers.
You can also buy ALTIUS via Amazon USA, where one tub costs $34.19.
Jacked Factory ALTIUS looks OK and if you are looking for a pre work out supplement it may suit you. It contains some well-known ingredients, and we like that the energy effect is provided by caffeine rather than dangerous stimulants which are often a mainstay of body building supplements. In addition, it contains popular ingredients such as Citrulline and Creatine in lowish, though effective quantities, and it should be safe for most people to take. We like that the ingredients list is provided, so you know exactly what you are taking.
In our opinion, ALTIUS looks to be one of the better supplements in the Jacked Factory range. However, we do have some concerns about this company. We do not like the practice of posting fake positive customer reviews to lure others to buy, and we do not trust that the so-called money-back guarantee will be easy to claim. The product information states it is hassle free to claim a refund, but we think most people will struggle to do this before the 30 days expiry.
In addition, it is a bit expensive. Although the initial price seems reasonable, you may find that you run through your powder very fast so you may not be able to make it last for 20 days supply as claimed.
Finally, the flavour. This does seem to be an issue with many customers and with ALTIUS only providing the one Mixed Berry Blast flavour, there is no alternative.
Overall, we do not recommend Jacked Factory ALTIUS to our readers.
ALTIUS is a pre workout supplement powder in Mixed Berry flavour. You just add a scoop to 16 – 24 oz of water and drink about a half an hour before your work out, and the idea is that this will boost gym performance and endurance, and lead to better muscle gains.
ALTIUS comes with a full ingredients profile including individual ingredients quantities so you can see just what you are taking. There is the Core Performance, Power Strength, and Endurance Formula which contains L Citrulline Malate as the principle ingredient, plus Creatine and Beta Alanine and Betaine, so we can see that these may provide support to nitric oxide production as well as muscle building.
The energy part of the formula is Caffeine which is quite strong at 325mg per serving. There is also Alpha GPC a compound that may have a nootropic effect and improve focus. Finally the profile is topped off by Bioperine, a black pepper compound that may increase the bioavailabity of the added ingredients by helping the body’s absorption. Take a look at the ingredients tab to find out more.
ALTIUS obviously will not suit everyone. This supplement is focused on helping body builders gain muscle rather than lose weight, and it should be used with a training regime. If you are sensitive to Caffeine you will find it too strong and of course you should not use it if you have underlying health issues. The product information advises that you start with half a serving which seems like a good idea.
Jacked Factory is a US company that operates solely online and sells mainly via Amazon or their own website. We have covered some of their supplements in previous reviews including Burn XT.
According to the product information, ALTIUS is a “clinically dosed pre workout fuel” with 8 key features;
We like that it comes with some visible information about the strength, and the need to avoid caffeine from other sources while you are using it.
“ALTIUS is an incredibly strong pre-workout supplement that contains 325mg caffeine per serving, the equivalent of approximately 3 cups of coffee. Avoid using with any other caffeinated products”
Of course there is no supplement in the world that can create endless endurance, but overall the claims seem to match the ingredients profile that is if you tone them down to more realistic levels! The Caffeine should give your energy levels a boost for your workout, while the Core Performance Formula may help improve your stamina and exercise performance. More training equals more muscles, but it is important to follow a sensible regime so that you don’t have to take time out due to injury or physical damage. Overall, we can see that this pre workout supplement may suit some people. Source
Serving size is equal to 1 x 20.33g scoop.
Most customers have not mentioned side effects, in fact most of the negative reviewers have mentioned zero effects at all, whether good or bad. A tingling sensation can be caused by Beta Alanine, and some users have been disappointed in not experiencing this well known but harmless side effect.
There are some reported effects including;
Other side effects may include;
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Speak to your doctor fist if you have underlying health issues or are taking prescription medication. Avoid other sources of caffeine while using such as coffee, sodas or other supplements that contain caffeine.
There are over 900 customer reviews for ALTIUS on Amazon and most are positive. However, this is not as good as it first appears. Jacked Factory have past form in faking and manipulating customer feedback to create a false impression. According to scam software, Amazon have scrubbed and deleted reviews already from this one, which they regarded as fraudulent.
That said some customer seem genuine and are positive, leaving comments such as,
It’s really hard to judge pre-workouts (for me) but this one helps with the motivation (caffeine) and other important pre-workout fuels. Most importantly, though, it doesn’t jack my system nor overhype me. I’ve ordered more! …
Flavor isn’t the best but it works as advertised. A lot more energy and great pump
Clean energy. No crashing.
Some people do not like the flavour,
The taste of this was pretty awful, but the energy was decent. The taste was bad enough that I couldn’t take it anymore.
Some users say it just doesn’t work,
The taste is dreadful and it doesn’t provide any energy. I would not recommend this product
Don’t understand the high ratings or the price. I felt very little off my normal 2 scoop dosage. Other cheaper brands are much better options.
Some people have experienced side effects. A common one seems to be stomach pain.
According to the advertising there is a 100% money-back guarantee. The company states that if for any reason at all you aren’t satisfied, simply send it back within 30 days for a full refund.
However there are no further details, and the guarantee policy is not mentioned in the terms and conditions. You can only contact Jacked Factory by email via the official website. Will the company respond once they know you are looking for a refund? Will there be a returns address provided? Will you run out of time and exceed the 30 day limit once you have found this information?
You can buy ALTIUS via the Jacked Factory website. It is also on sale at Amazon USA.
