In this review, we are going to take a closer look at the Jacked Factory Nitrosurge Shred supplement to see if it is all it is cracked up to be, or whether it’s something not to waste your money on.
Nitrosurge Shred is a thermogenic pre-workout fat burning supplement in powder form. It is produced and sold by Jacked Factory, a company based in Newfoundland, Canada. Each tub contains thirty servings.
L-Citrulline and Beta Alanine can cause some gastrointestinal side effects. Beta Alanine is also known for causing paresthesia – a tingling type sensation in the limbs and face. However, this is harmless, albeit it disconcerting if you are not expecting it.
The high dosage of caffeine can cause side effects such as increased heart rate and high blood pressure, insomnia and disruption to sleep patterns, anxiety, and feelings of jitteriness. L-
Theanine is also known for sometimes causing gastrointestinal side effects, and it can cause problems such as dizziness and headaches.
From the Jacked Factory website shop, the supplement costs $29.99 (30 servings). This should last between 15 and 30 days, depending on the dose you decide to take. If you sign up to their Facebook messenger list, you can get a 10% discount on purchases.
From the outset, the ingredients in this supplement look ok. It contains some well-known ingredients, and we like the fact that the energy is provided by caffeine rather than any dangerous stimulants. In addition, it contains ingredients such as theanine and L-citrulline, which can be effective. We like that the ingredients list is provided, so you know exactly what you are taking, which many supplement manufacturers seem to avoid doing.
However, it’s just not effectively dosed to have much in the way of the desired effect. The amount of citrulline in the Nitrosurge shred is just a third of the optimal amount – if it is too small an amount to make any difference, why bother including it in the first place?
We also know so little about the company. We have established through research that Jacked Factory are based in Newfoundland, Canada, but we don’t know anything else about the company at all.
We think that there are so many better pre-workout supplements out there, so we do not recommend Jacked Factory Nitrosurge Shred to our readers.
Jacked Factory Nitrosurge Shred is a fat burning pre-workout powder supplement. It apparently delivers everything that you need to ‘experience endless energy, sharp focus, increases in strength, skin-tearing pumps, and a thermogenic boost to burn fat faster while preserving lean muscle mass’.
It contains ingredients such as caffeine and beta alanine to give you that much-needed boost in the gym, as well as ingredients to help increase the amount of nitric oxide in your bloodstream. However, it appears that at least one of the key ingredients is seriously underdosed, and another lacks much in the way of scientific evidence to support its efficacy.
Nitrosurge Shred claims to be highly potent thermogenic pre-workout fat burning supplement for men and women, that helps boost workout performance and fat burning using synergistic clinically-dosed ingredients. Some of the claimed benefits include:
Nitrosurge Shred contains L-Citrulline, a popular ingredient in pre-workout supplements. It is supposed to help by improving muscle recovery, and because it is a vasodilator, it will improve blood circulation by relaxing blood vessels and increasing the amount of blood pumped to muscles. Some research shows that it may be useful for people suffering from high blood pressure, erectile dysfunction, and diabetes. However, despite supplement manufacturers claiming that L-citrulline may improve energy and endurance, there is not a great deal of scientific evidence to support these claims. Some studies have highlighted a few positive benefits of L-citrulline, but they have used very large doses of the ingredient, usually over the 6g mark. As the Nitrosurge Shred only contains 2g, these benefits are likely to remain unseen.
The same can be said about beta-alanine. The evidence suggests that in large doses, there may be some increase in muscle pump and endurance, but the dosage is too low for this to happen.
Nitrosurge Shred contains stimulants as well. The caffeine content is quite high, and for a lot of people will improve concentration and focus to a certain extent. However, not everyone is going to experience these benefits. Many studies have shown no change in endurance and performance after taking caffeine. Most of the benefits of caffeine are for those people who do not consume it on a day to day basis in their diet. If you already drink coffee, this supplement probably won’t make a huge amount of difference to you in this respect. Your body gets used to the ingredient, and you would have to take dangerously high dosages for it to take effect. Theanine is thought to be a good ingredient to counterbalance some of the negative effects of the caffeine, and will help to promote the relaxation hormones serotonin and dopamine, but how effectively it will do this is not known.
It is marketed as a ‘thermogenic’ supplement, but other than the very small dose of bioperine, which is an extract from the black pepper fruit, there are no decent thermogenic ingredients in here. The main benefit from the bioperine is that it will help the body absorb the other ingredients more efficiently.
Overall, whilst the Nitrosurge Shred contains some popular pre-workout ingredients, it probably won’t have many noticeable effects.
These quantities are per each 8g scoop. Scoops can be doubled, if required and tolerance allows.
The other ingredients in the supplement are mostly natural and artificial flavors and sweeteners.
Like all supplements containing a range of ingredients, it can cause some adverse effects in some people. Both L-Citrulline and Beta Alanine can cause some gastrointestinal side effects.
Beta Alanine is also known for causing paresthesia pins and needles type sensation in the limbs and face. This happens in doses over 0.8mg, this product contains double that. Whilst it is completely harmless, it can be unnerving if unexpected. The high dosage of caffeine can cause side effects such as increased heart rate and high blood pressure, insomnia and disruption to sleep patterns, anxiety, and feelings of jitteriness.
L-Theanine is also known for sometimes causing gastrointestinal side effects, and it can problems such as dizziness and headaches.
As with all supplements, seek medical advice if you are under 18, pregnant, breastfeeding or suffer from any existing medical conditions.
This supplement is available to buy from the Jacked Factory online shop, costing $29.99 for a tub containing thirty servings.
