With many pre-workout supplements containing the same ingredients time and again, we often need to look to the dosages used to see which products stand out (for the right reasons). Unfortunately, LMNITRIX Focus has too little of some ingredients and too much of others.

Below we take an in-depth look at LMNITRIX Focus, to see what benefits it offers consumers.

LMNITRIX Focus Overview

What you need to know about LMNITRIX Focus

LMNITRIX Focus is a powdered pre-workout supplement that is designed to boost energy levels and to maximise strength gains.

Customers can choose from numerous flavours such as Blue Slush, Watermelon Punch, Mango Ice, Green Apple, and Pink Lemonade.

Each serving contains about the same amount of caffeine as three large coffees (and imagine drinking them all within about five minutes).

What are the side effects of LMNITRIX Focus?

There is a long list of side effects that could develop whilst taking LMNITRIX Focus. This is reflected in the customer reviews of the product. Reported side effects include vomiting, diarrhoea, nausea, dizziness, light-headedness, upset stomach, decreased energy levels, sleepiness, and grogginess. There is also at least one person who reported “feeling weird” after taking it. Some people have reported tingly or itchy feet, which appears to be an expected side effect of Beta-alanine consumption.

The 340 mg of caffeine per serving is very high and could cause a range of side effects including headaches, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, dizziness, and insomnia. Too much caffeine can actually make you feel sluggish and low on energy.

LMNITRIX Focus can be purchased from the official LMNITRIX website, where a single tub costs $29.99 plus delivery charges.

LMNITRIX Focus Key Features

LMNITRIX Focus is a powdered pre-workout supplement that is designed to boost energy levels and to maximise strength gains.

LMNITRIX Focus Key Points

  • Manufactured by LMNITRIX
  • 30 servings per tub
  • Available in five different flavours

The supplement comes in a choice of three flavours when purchased directly from the manufacturers; Blue Slush, Watermelon Punch, and Mango Ice. From third party online retailers, other flavours are also available, including Green Apple and Pink Lemonade.

How to Take LMNITRIX Focus

Directions for use are as follows:

  • Mix one scoop with water, and drink before a workout. Do not consume caffeine from other sources.

LMNITRIX Focus is manufactured by an American supplement company called LMNITRIX, who are based out of West Virginia. LMNITRIX describe themselves as a family-run company, and are mainly known for their range of pre-workouts, BCAAs, and other workout aids. As well as selling each of their products individually, LMNITRIX also sells “stacks” of several products together that target weight loss, athletic performance, and other areas. The company can be contacted via the details supplied on their official website.

LMNITRIX Focus Concerns

  • High caffeine content
  • Some ingredients under-dosed
  • Conflicting and unclear returns policies

What does LMNITRIX Focus claim to do?

LMNITRIX describe Focus as an intense pre-workout formula that is suitable for consumption by both men and women. It was designed with maximum energy boost and ultimate strength gains in mind, and is also intended to aid mental focus and clarity.

Does LMNITRIX Focus work?

Beta alanine and AAKG will both maximise the consumer’s performance in the gym, especially if they are concentrating on muscle building exercises. By being able to work harder, consumers will be able to build more muscle overall. The quantities are on the low end of recommended dosing, and so are unlikely to have a huge effect.

Caffeine could boost energy levels, both physically and mentally. However, the amount found in a serving of this supplement is very high (similar to drinking three large coffees at once), making side effects likely, including the possibility of a noticeable energy crash a few hours after consumption.

Huperzine is a nootropic supplement, and Choline is used by the brain to make acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter linked with various aspects of memory.

Overall, this supplement could offer some benefits, but the dosages of individual ingredients are far from ideal.

LMNITRIX Focus Ingredients

The ingredients found in LMNITRIX Focus are detailed below. The ingredient quantities provided are per single scoop (6.6 grams).

  • Beta Alanine 1500 mg: Beta alanine has been repeatedly proven to raise the levels of muscle carnosine in the human body, which has the effect of increasing the amount of work athletes can perform in high-intensity workouts. Its use is accompanied by a distinctive “tingling” sensation in the muscles. Source
  • L-Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate 2:1 1000 mg: L-Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate, more commonly referred to as AAKG, is known to boost Nitric Oxide levels in the liver. It is most often used by athletes/bodybuilders to help build muscle. Source
  • Creatine Magnapower 1000 mg: Creatine helps to rapidly produce ATP in the muscles, helping to boost strength and power in the gym. Creatine Magnapower is a branded form of creatine. Source
  • Choline (DL-Bitartrate) 750 mg: Athletes sometimes supplement Choline to delay fatigue and improve endurance, but there is little evidence to support this. Choline is required to make acetylcholine in the brain. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter which is linked with improved learning, memory retention, and recall. Source
  • Agmatine Sulfate 500 mg: Agmatine Sulfate is thought by some to act as a useful form of pain relief, although most sports supplement manufacturers promote it as a way to improve performance and aid exercise recovery. Source
  • Caffeine Anhydrous 300 mg: Numerous studies have shown that caffeine boosts energy levels and alertness, as well as mildly boosting the metabolism, causing a small increase in the number of calories used by the body. The effects shown in studies are small, and some studies are inconclusive. This product uses a massive dose of caffeine that is likely to cause side effects. Source
  • L-Histidine HCL 50 mg: This amino acid is involved in a number of enzyme-catalysed reactions. Supplementation of histidine is not thought to result in any outcome, positive, or negative. Source
  • Caffeine Citrate 40 mg: Another form of caffeine. See above.
  • Vanadyl Sulfate 20 mg: This substance may help the body to use insulin more effectively, and seems to act in the same way as insulin. However, existing studies that suggest this effect used tiny sample sizes and were unable to confirm whether this effect works long-term. Source
  • Huperzine A (1%) 100 mcg: Huperzine-A is found in Huperzia serrata, and is thought to be a cognitive enhancer. Previous studies have found it to be effective as a memory enhancer for adults suffering from Alzheimer’s or dementia. Because of the relatively long half-life of this compound, its use should be cycled, with breaks in usage every few weeks. Source

LMNITRIX Focus Side Effects

There are numerous ingredients found in LMNITRIX Focus that could cause a range of side effects.

Consuming large quantities of caffeine can lead to headaches, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, dizziness, and insomnia.

The most common side effect of Beta Alanine is a tingling sensation in the muscles; many consider this a sign that the Beta-alanine is working, and as evidence that the supplement is indeed correctly dosed. Some people may dislike the tingling sensation, but it is not a sign of anything negative or more serious. Flushing is also a side effect caused by taking high doses of Beta alanine.

Creatine can cause some side effects including stomach pain, nausea, diarrhoea, and muscle cramping. Creatine causes muscles to draw water from the rest of your body.

Arginine can increase Nitric Oxide levels, and this can, in turn, lower blood pressure; anyone who already has low blood pressure, or who are taking medications that affect blood pressure, should avoid taking arginine and other supplements that claim to increase NO levels. In one study, L-Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate (AAKG) caused side effects including dizziness, vomiting, and loss of consciousness. AAKG is not recommended for continuous, high-level use for more than 60 days.

Personal tolerance of choline supplementation appears to vary a lot from person to person; the main side effect appears to be headaches.

Huperzine A can cause a range of side effects including digestive issues, stomach issues, blurred vision, loss of appetite, sweating, cramping, high blood pressure, and other issues. The likelihood of side effects occurring increases when the supplement is taken for a prolonged period of time, and cycling the product (with a break in use every four weeks or so) is recommended to reduce the chances of side effects occurring.

Caution: Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Not suitable for anyone under the age of 18. If you are unsure about the suitability of this supplement, or any other supplement, consult your doctor before purchase. If you have any cardiac related health issues, including but not limited to high or low blood pressure, consult your doctor before purchase.

LMNITRIX Focus Customer Feedback

There are numerous reviews for LMNITRIX Focus on Amazon, where the product was once sold, but we encourage our readers to take the positive reviews with a huge pinch of salt; the reviews received an F rating on Fakespot.com, suggesting that around 60% of the reviews are fake or suspicious. The side effects referred to in negative reviews are also quite alarming.

Great boost of focus and energy but it makes my hands and feet itch. Not sure why. I don’t have any known allergy so it kind of is weird but it goes away after like 10 mins but pretty annoying until then.

This item made me sick! I felt light headed and dizzy. The crash lasted for hours! Definitely throwing it out

makes you groggy and makes you feel weird dont do it.

I took this product 3 time and it made me sick every time and I threw up 2 of the 3 times of taking it.

LMNITRIX Focus Money-Back Guarantee

LMNITRIX’s policy on returns is fairly confusing. On their “returns policy”, the company states that they only offer refunds on unopened packages returned within 14 days of receiving it. This policy does not qualify as a money-back guarantee, which should only refer to opened packages (meaning that customers have had a chance to try the product and decide they don’t like it before receiving a refund).

Incidentally, the company claims to offer a 60-day money-back guarantee on the product sales page for Focus, also describing it as a “100% Guarantee” on the links at the bottom of the website. Looking at the terms of the guarantee on the dedicated “Guarantee” page, however, it is phrased as if it only covers BCAA products.

It may be worth contacting the company for clarification if you are thinking of applying for a refund for any LMNITRIX products, as the website is full of strange contradictions on this issue!

The returns policies of third-party retailers may vary.

Where To Buy LMNITRIX Focus

LMNITRIX Focus can be purchased from the official LMNITRIX website, where a single tub costs $29.99 plus delivery charges. It is available in a choice of three flavours.

The supplement is also sold at the third-party online retailer, Nutrition Pit. Here a single tub costs $29.99 plus delivery charges. Supp Champ, another online distributor, also sell a single tub for $29.99 plus delivery charges.

Watchdog Verdict

Overall, we are not very impressed by LMNITRIX Focus. With the total caffeine content per serving being 340 mg, it is unsurprising that many consumers have experienced side effects. This high dosage could definitely boost energy levels, but it could also cause jitteriness and a number of other side effects. Unfortunately, many of the other ingredients appear to be under-dosed, and the high caffeine content prevents consumers from doubling the dosage to get more beta-alanine or AAKG.

The manufacturer’s returns policy is confusing and contradictory, with different policies laid out on different parts of the website. As such, customers may not be able to receive a refund.

Many of the customer reviews are positive, but Fakespot suggests that many are also fake or suspicious. Fake reviews seem to crop up on all the Amazon listings of LMNITRIX products.

There are numerous customer complaints about the taste of the supplement in reviews, as well as numerous reports of side effects.

Overall, we do not recommend LMNITRIX Focus to our readers.
