Yes, I have been writing a few reviews from the Nutrabio product line…and loving each one I have been writing about. Last week NutraBio sent me the new reformulated PRE Extreme…it was reformulated and they wanted my take on the new product. It came all wrapped up in a nice box and a whopping 5 servings to test out. Usually I only get a serving or two…was happy they gave me enough to test it out for 5 days…and these were 5 full servings…not the “take 1-2 servings” to feel it shit. Thanks NutraBio!
So the flavor they sent me was green apple. This flavor seems to be getting very popular. I think the first was from Gaspari Nutrition a couple years ago, but seems that every company coming out with this flavor is getting better and better at flavoring it. And this is no different. This is sweet and tastes just like one of those green apple blow pop suckers. If you like those, you will absolutely love this flavor. It mixes very easily in water and goes down nice and smooth. Really easy to drink. I actually looked forward to drinking it each day. I think you will too. It’s always easier to take a pre-workout when it tastes this good.
So I can honestly tell you I have never tried the original or last version of PRE EXTREME. So I can’t compare it directly, but here are the main changes for those that have:
- 4mg of Yohimbe HCL
- Increased to 2.5g of Betaine (love this, as that is the clinical dose and I love betaine)
- 300mg of Theapure L-Theanine was added
- Huperzine-A went to 100mcg
- 2 Grams of Creatine was added
- Phosphorus increased by 14mg
- Potassium increased by 1mg
What I love about this product and all the products from NutraBio is that they are not proprietary and they list out each individual ingredient. This way you know exactly what you are getting. A couple things I love about this formula, which has remained the same:
- 6 Grams of Citrulline Malate – That is huge. I love this stuff for pumps and endurance.
- 2.5 Grams of Beta Alanine – Gives you the tingles, but also helps you bust out more reps.
- Creatine – We all know that this helps big time with muscle building and strength.
- Agmatine – Love this for pumps.
- 350mg of Caffeine – Now this a lot for some people. I am a stim junkie, so anything between 300mg and 400mg is perfect for me.
How Did It Work For Me?
Well this stuff rocked. I took it for 5 days straight. How could it not have. This isn’t your concentrate…this is a ingredient packed pre-workout…clinical doses for that matter. I didn’t have to add anything to this like I do with other pre-workout supplements. I started drinking it on my way to the gym…about 45min before. Finished up about 15min before. I like to sip it during my drive. Energy kicked in about right before I walked into the gym. Felt great. I did a couple sets of pull-ups and the biceps were on fire with blood. Amazing pump. And it was literally after a couple sets. And it lasted my entire workout. Energy was good too. Again, there is 350mg of caffeine and other stimulants, so if you are sensitive to stimulants, do a 1/2 scoop. This amount was perfect for me. Non stop energy. No jitters whatsoever. I usually workout around 5pm…finished around 7pm. Later that night no crash or anything, and was able to get to sleep around 11pm….my normal time. Overall, they hit it out of the park with this formula. Great job guys. Would like to try the other flavors if I could too 😉
