Below we take an in-depth look at Nutrition Labz Morphex to see whether it is a safe and effective supplement or not.
Nutrition Labz Morphex is advertised as a pre-workout supplement that will provide advanced focus, explosive energy and “muscle engorging pumps”. The product contains numerous amino acids that should support a rigorous muscle building exercise routine, but the product also contains an incredibly strong stimulant, DMAA, which has been banned in numerous countries including the USA because it poses a serious health risk to consumers.
The most notable cause of side effects in Morphex is DMAA, which causes increased blood pressure and heart rate. DMAA was directly found to cause strokes, heart attacks and death before it was banned. Other side effects may include shortness of breath and tightening in the chest, seizures, neurological problems and psychiatric problems. The formula also contains caffeine and theobromine, two weaker stimulants, which can cause side effects such as insomnia and jitters.
Each tub of Morphex costs $59.99 from the official Nutrition Labz website. Delivery charges may also apply. There are 30 single scoop servings per tub; customers are instructed to take a single serving shortly before training.
We could not locate any third-party retailers online.
The use of DMAA, which is a banned and dangerous substance, in Morphex is a huge red flag- because of this single ingredient, we automatically dislike Morphex as a potential pre-workout supplement. DMAA can cause a huge range of side effects, including heart attack, coma and death; the inclusion of the ingredient shows a huge disregard for the customer’s health and safety. The manufacturers do not reveal the individual ingredient quantities used in their formula either. Although this is not a legal requirement (as they use proprietary formulas), it makes it more difficult to predict the likelihood of side effects, as well as to predict the effectiveness of the supplement. The list of side effects that could develop whilst taking Mophex is impressively long.
There are also seemingly no customer reviews of Morphex at all. This may be because the product was only launched in late 2016, according to the manufacturer’s Instagram page.
Nutrition Labz, the manufacturers of this supplement, have failed to state what their returns policy is on their official website, and it seems incredibly unlikely that they offer a money back guarantee.
No matter how effective a pre-workout supplement is, consumers should not risk their health just to lose a few pounds of fat or gain muscle quicker. Long term lifestyle changes should always be chosen over controversial supplements that could leave you in hospital.
Overall, we do not recommend Nutrition Labz Morphex to our readers.
Nutrition Labz Morphex is a pre-workout powder supplement that is intended to boost muscle gains and significantly boost energy levels. There are three different flavours of Morphex to choose from; Watermelon Burst, Strawberry Kiwi Burst, and Blue Raspberry Burst.
The product contains 1,3-Dimethylamylamine, which is more commonly known as DMAA. DMAA is a dangerous supplement that has been linked with serious side effects including significantly increased blood pressure, heart attacks, stroke, and even death. It is classed as an unlicensed medicinal product (meaning that it is illegal to use it in supplements) in numerous countries, including the USA, UK, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Brazil and Sweden.
The World Anti-Doping Association (WADA) have listed DMAA as a banned substance, as have many other sporting bodies, and any competitive athlete who is found to have it in their system could be suspended, banned, fined, or even stripped of their medals.
Directions for use are as follows:
Morphex is manufactured by Nutrition Labz, a company based in the USA. They do not provide an address on their website. They can be contacted using their numerous social media pages, all of which are posted on frequently. Customers can also contact them using the generic contact box provided on the “Contact” page of their official website.
The Nutrition Labz Morphex bottle lists the following benefits:
The manufacturers also provide the following description of the product’s benefits:
Morphex is the first to deliver full doses of its key active, pharmaceutical grade ingredients to enhance and maximize your physical potential.
Morphex contains several stimulant ingredients, including the banned DMAA that will absolutely give customers a powerful and extreme dose of energy (as well as a host of unpleasant side effects). This stimulant effect will also likely work as a metabolism booster, which should in theory make the body work in overdrive to burn more calories even when resting. Without knowing the individual ingredient quantities used, and with no customer reviews and anecdotal evidence available, it is difficult to establish the exact effectiveness of the product, but the presence of DMAA suggests that it will a very potent supplement.
There are also numerous amino acids used in the “pump matrix” that may help to support a rigorous muscle building exercise routine, to maximise lean muscle mass gains.
Whilst this supplement will theoretically work as claimed by the manufacturers, side effects are likely, and this may interfere with the consumer’s ability to take the supplement. We believe that the health risks of the supplement far outweigh the potential benefits, and recommend avoiding it completely.
The ingredients found in Nutrition Labz Morphex are detailed below.
The individual ingredient quantities are not always provided as the product contains several proprietary formulas. The ingredient quantities provided are per serving of a single scoop.
Nutrition Labz Morphex contains numerous ingredients, including several stimulant ingredients, which could cause a range of side effects.
DMAA is a banned substance for a reason. 1, 3-Dimethylamylamine significantly increases blood pressure and heart rate, and has been linked with causing strokes, heart attacks and death, even in previously healthy people. Other side effects may include shortness of breath and tightening in the chest, seizures, neurological problems and psychiatric problems. The FDA has been engaged in a major campaign to remove it entirely from the unregulated supplement market for many years, which is resisted by several supplement manufacturers.
More information about the product, and the FDA’s ban upon it, can be found here: http://www.fda.gov/food/dietarysupplements/qadietarysupplements/ucm346576.htm
Side effects of caffeine can include headaches, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, dizziness and insomnia. Theobromine is a stimulant that is incredibly similar to caffeine, but much milder- it could potentially cause the same side effects as caffeine.
Glucuronolactone is under-researched, despite being a common ingredient in energy drinks, and so there are no known side effects. However, this does not mean that there are no side effects of this ingredient. Taurine is similarly under-researched.
Arginine can increase Nitric Oxide levels, and this can in turn lower blood pressure; anyone who already has low blood pressure, or who is 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.
