Jacked Factory is a US-based supplements company that focuses on bodybuilder products. The company does not provide any information regarding a physical address or even a telephone number. However, you can contact the company via Facebook messenger or email.
Build-XT is a supplement to be taken every day in order to boost your strength and endurance in the gym. It contains a blend of three branded supplements based on natural ingredients and compared to many muscle boosting supplements on the market, it looks pretty safe. It may have some effect on exercise performance, but with the evidence looking a bit shaky and the fact that this supplement is underpowered, you might find it makes very little difference. We have concerns that the so-called money-back guarantee may be harder to claim than is advertised.
Customers have not complained of side effects. However potential side effects may include mild gastric upset, nausea, diarrhoea, changes to blood sugar levels, changes to blood pressure, skin rash, increased sun sensitivity, and allergic reaction.
Cease use if you experience side effects and seek medical advice if necessary.
Build-XT is not overly expensive. Buy from the Jacked Factory website and it costs $24.99 for 60 capsules (1 month’s supply). You can get a 10% discount by subscribing to the company’s Facebook messenger list. Shipping is calculated at the point of sale.
It is also on sale via Amazon where it costs $25.50.
The trouble with Jacked Factory Build-XT is that it’s all a little unproven and underpowered. If a company is going to used branded supplements in a formula, they should ensure to provide the recommended serving but this has not happened here.
If you did want to try out Peak O2, it is easily available to buy as a pre-workout powder and if you did this, at least you would get the recommended serving size of 2 g rather than the 1 g in this supplement. As to elevATP, how does this work exactly? Even the information provided by the makers of this supplement cannot explain and although peat and apples sound interesting, we think we all need much more information before we start taking it.
Overall Build-XT looks safe which is good and some customers have enjoyed taking it. It is not overly expensive either. But in our opinion, this supplement is just not good enough to approve. We do not recommend Jacked Factory Build-XT to the Watchdog readers on this basis.
Jacked Factory Build-XT is a muscle building supplement to be taken daily and according to the product information is aimed at athletes, gym goers, and active individuals in order to take physical performance to the next level.
Ingredients are three branded products; Peak O2 a mushroom extract blend and there is elevATP – a blend of peat (fossilised plants) and apples. The final component is AstraGin which is supposed to increase absorption of the other ingredients, making them feel stronger.
Peak O2 is relatively new on the market. It is being touted as boosting strength and stamina and the idea is that it will help you train harder and at a higher intensity, and so build muscles more easily. It is available as a powder and you can take Peak O2 as a supplement in its own right. However here it is condensed into capsule form and combined with other ingredients.
ElevATP comes from a company called FutureCeuticals. This branded supplement contains peat and apples, a combination we have not seen before and is again supposed to improve strength and power in resistance training.
Probably the best-known component of the trio is AstraGin which often shows up in supplements in all types and is based on Astralagus and a type of ginseng.

Jacked Factory is based somewhere in the USA but does not provide anything in the way of real details. However, all supplements are manufactured in the USA and you can contact them via Facebook messenger. The Facebook page has 14, 000 followers and Jacked Factory sell via this, as well as operating on Amazon USA, affiliate marketing, and selling directly from the product website.
Amazon is obviously an important marketplace because Jacked Factory has paid extra to have their advertisements sponsored. Unlike an ordinary Amazon advert, this actively targets customers and is described as “a pay-per-click advertising solution that enables you to promote the products you sell with keyword-targeted ads that appear in highly visible placements on Amazon.com.”
In other words, a sponsored product is very high up the listings without having to be popular with customers. If a company has paid for sponsored advertising, it is always going to give the impression that it is superior to a product which hasn’t.
We have covered other Jacked Factory supplements on the Muscle website including, Jacked Factory ALTIUS, which is more stimulant focused although also used as a muscle builder. We have also reviewed Jacked Factory NitroSurge, and extreme fat burner Jacked Factory Burn XT.
According to the advertising, the key features are as follows:
There is an explanation about what it is and who it is aimed at,
“BUILD-XT is a clinically-dosed, daily muscle building supplement formulated for athletes, gym-goers, and active individuals who are looking to take their physical performance and physique to the next level.”
The formula is described as backed by science and proven to work!
“BUILD- XT contains a complete profile of science-backed ingredients, including PeakO2, ElevATP, and AstraGin which promotes significant improvements in muscle growth, strength, power, and endurance.”
It does not seem very convincing that it will work as described. Despite using three branded products, Build-XT all seems a little experimental and unproven as well as underpowered.
The key ingredient is Peak O2 which is based on adaptogenic mushrooms, and this is being touted as a performance enhancer and muscle builder. Adaptogens are materials that increase feelings of wellness so it is possible that taking a blend of these would help you feel better and perform better, but it seems a little tenuous. In addition, the clinical testing seems pretty insignificant and is even more unlikely to work here given that the serving for Build-XT contains half the recommended serving size.
We love the idea of taking peat combined with apple with elevATP, it sounds so natural and earthy but we just cannot understand how this formula works. It would have been useful to have seen an explanation of this in the elevATP advertising, even if it were difficult to understand. However, there is no explanation about how the apples and peat work on a cellular level to improve increase ATP levels (Adenosine triphosphate) as claimed.
AstraGin is known to improve the bioavailability of amino acids minerals and vitamins and other natural substances including Creatine and L Citrulline. So it is possible that it may have some effect, but again this supplement only contains half the manufacturers’ recommended serving size.
Serving size is equal to 2 capsules.
Side effects should not be an issue for most users, but may include the following:
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Speak to your doctor before use if you have an underlying medical condition or are taking prescription medication. Cease use in the case of side effects and seek medical advice if necessary.
Jacked Factory Build-XT is on sale via Amazon. This is obviously an important marketplace for Jacked Factory because the Build-XT advertisement is sponsored, which means the company has paid extra to get it boosted up the supplements listings.
There are 124 customer reviews.
Some seem genuine such as this man, who has been using it as a pre-workout supplement,
When looking through the ingredients, nothing really pops up in research. But after digging deeper, many of the ingredients are located in cardiovascular health journals. Some are even Chinese remedies for heart health. I have been using this product as a standalone preworkout. Something I have noticed is a good pump during the workout, and a lasting pump for the remainder of the day (great vascularity as well.) I bet it would work even better in a stack with a stim based preworkout….
There are some negative comments,
Didn’t do anything. Sugar pills!
Down to the last few capsules in the bottle. Did not use any other supplements to insure the results were reflective of this product alone. No increase in strength, energy, or muscle mass. On the positive side, no gastric or other problems. Second time I’ve tried to review this product, has Amazon decided not to show negative reviews?
This does seem to be an issue with products which are sponsored by Amazon.
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. With only Facebook messenger or email as a way to contact the company, you will have to trust that they will get back to you in time to return the product within the 30 days deadline.
You can buy Jacked Factory Build-XT directly from the Jacked Factory website. It is also on sale via Amazon, as well as advertised on Facebook and via affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is where a website advertises a product and gets a fee for leading potential customers to buy.
