Middle of the road
Did really feel the "surge" when I took it (like other preworkouts that I've taken). Not the best that I've had not the worst, thus, its the middle of the road for me
Some of the superior ingredients might not be well known by most, so here is a slight breakdown on some of the key ingredients in this extremely powerful formula:
PeakO2™: This patented blend of 6 mushrooms has been shown to increase time-to-exhaustion by 60-fold, increase power output by 17.6% and peak power by 2.8% vs a placebo. This ingredient has been shown to increase ATP production (more energy), VO2 Max (better Oxygen Flow) and antioxidants, all of which will allow you to perform better in the gym. 1 Scoop of Chemix Pre Workout contains 2g.
Kanna (Sceletium tortuosum): This ingredient is a unique ingredient that will give you an added effect you won't get from other pre workouts. This is an all natural herb that acts as a nootropic (brain vitamin) and interacts with 77 different receptors in your brain. It has been shown to be a natural SSRi (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor), which increases serotonin levels and blocks is uptake. This boosts mood, giving you an extremely focused and euphoric feeling. Think extreme happy thoughts. Kanna also acts as a monoamine releasing agent, meaning it increases dopamine & adrenaline levels (again, happy feeling and extreme energy rush). Kanna has also been proven to inhibit phosphodiesterase 4 (PDE4), which allows for better mood, increased long-term memory formation and wakefulness. The studied dose of this ingredient is 25mg, but Chemix boasts a 1000mg dose at 2:1 ratio to give you optimal results.
GlycerPump™: GlycerPump is the new version of a powdered glycerol supplement that is standardized for 65% glycerol. Glycerol is an ingredient that attracts lots of water and helps hydrate cells very effectively. This is known as a state of hyperhydration, which can increase performance and give you pumps that you have never before seen! You get 3g of this ingredient in Chemix Pre.
Lions Mane(Organic) standardized for 25% beta glucans: Lions Mane is a nootropic (brain vitamin) and cognitive-enhancing mushroom. It has been studied and shown to increase nerve growth factor while simultaneously decreasing beta amyloid levels (which at high levels cause mental decline). This decreases overall inflammation in the rain and can improve levels of cognition, memory and mental fatigue. Lions Mane also has been shown to increase dopamine production and enhance euphoria. Lions Mane is dosed at 600mg/scoop.
Exothermic Energy Amalgam: This is a very specific combination of extremely strong stimulants, nootropics (brain vitamins) and adaptogens that allow for an increase in energy, focus, euphoria and decrease mental fatigue. The Guerrilla Chemist spent years devoloping this exact blend of the cognitive and performance-enhancing ingredients, and each of the ingredients is there at an exact dose for maximum synergy and effect. For this reason, he has decided to protect his formula and make it a proprietary blend. After almost a full year of research and development, he didn't want anyone to copy the exact formula.
