By Nader Qudimat / Feb 11, 2016 Review of: Mesomorph Purpose: Promote tunnel-focus and energy, great for pumps Effectiveness Meets all claims and does an excellent job in increasing focus and energy. Ingredients Multiple ingredients for one purpose makes it an effective pre workout for pumps and energy. Price Fairly priced. Availability Easy to find. We Like Mixture of fast and slow stimulants5 nitric oxide boosters (increases pumps from different 'angles') 65mg of DMAA in every scoop (Way too much for beginners)3.2g of beta alanine and mix of performance boosting ingredientsSome disclosed ingredientsTrue 1 scooper We Don't Like Proprietary blendsStrong artifical flavors Summary: Unlike many DMAA based pre workouts, Mesomorph has a balanced formula that packs 15 grams of active ingredients in every scoop.It has performance boosting ingredients that'll not only increase energy and focus but nitric oxide as well.Mesomorph has a full 65mg DMAA per scoop and lots of beneficial ingredients that'll fight off fatigue and increase overall energy. Check It Out See the best deal here. DMAA was never banned, APS Mesomorph has always been here! Click to Tweet Pre workouts are more than just caffeine, they are a collection of ingredients that have a unique purpose behind them. Every once in a while there comes a stimulant, much better and more powerful than caffeine (see the top 10 strongest pre workouts), like DMAA, or 1,3 dimethylamylamine.It'll energize, speed up the heart rate and bring a whole new meaning to pre workouts, but then a couple abusers and misinformed bro's bring the FDA's attention to the potenetially dangerous stimulant.Jack3d was removed and reformulated and we thought we would never see a DMAA product again, but we were wrong. Mesomorph is not only a pre workout with DMAA but it also has creatine nitrate (nitric oxide supplements with the top 10), beta alanine, citrulline malate, agmatine, creationol-o-phosphate, and much more. This is a pre workout that seems to be made for people who love DMAA but also want ergonomic ingrediets for maximum performance (and pumps)Forget Jack3d, this is one of the few DMAA-based pre workouts that have a decent profile. So while the government and FDA try to take away this focus enhancing stimulant, check out what could be the next best thing in your supplement stash (check out our pre workout reviews). APS has got a nice line up of various supplements.There's so many great pre workouts out there, APS Nutrition has done it a bit different though.While Mesomorph does feature a proprietary blend, it does feature a 15 gram serving for each scoop and a whole bunch of ingredients that'll boost muscular endurance and pumps.There are 2 versions of Mesomorph, the 2nd version doesn't have DMAA. The first version is still available and easy to find, you'll know if you have the DMAA (1,3) version if you see "gerainium oil extract".Most pre workouts don't have what Mesomorph has, and that's the very powerful and energy inducing stimulant, DMAA.

Mesomorph Ingredients Proprietary blends suck. But like most DMAA pre workouts, they always place their ingredients in blends like Mesomorph does here. However here, we know Mesomorph has a solid 65mg dose of DMAA per serving.That's just below the maximum dose, which is 75mg as that would increase blood pressure. There's 3 blends in total, with the first being for nitric oxide, second for even more pumps, and the third for energy and focus.On paper it looks great with DMAA and all but being in proprietary blends is hard to tell what you're actually getting. With a little over 10 grams in nitric oxide boosters, there most definitely will be some strong pumps going. Synthenox-Carnosine/Nitric Oxide ComplexThis Blend Consists Of: Beta-AlanineL-Citrulline DL-MalateArginine AKG This blend is suppose to help boost endurance and pumps. Beta alanine and citrulline are both partners in crime when it comes to boosting endurance. They both help fight fatigue and help you sustain intensity longer than normal.Arginine AKG might seem kinda pointless there as we all know it's the inferior form of N.O. compared to the other ingredients like citrulline and nitrates. But since it's not the only ingredient in there for pumps, it's actually not so much a bad thing to include. This blend seems pretty simple but since it's in a prop blend, there's no way to tell if it's effective until it's tried.With that in mind, you're not going to buy Mesomorph purely for nitric oxide and pumps, it's mainly a DMAA pre workout that helps unleash crazy energy and focus. Turn yourself into a Meso and never look back. Beta Alanine (3.2g)It doesn't matter if you're engaged in strenuous physical activities like lifting, or just running around the block, you've probably experienced that burning, painful sensation. It'd stop you short from a set or you'll most likely fatigue sooner than you'd like to. Beta alanine helps you last longer, sustain high intensity more than normally, and help buffer the burning sensation that occurs with lifting and exercise. It's been confirmed there's 3.2 grams of BA in Mesomorph, so you'll be getting the full clinical dose with every serving. While you may not enjoy the itchy part of it, you'll benefit from increased strength, power and endurance. The combination of DMAA and BA will turn you into an unstoppable energized force, though you might feel tingly even from half servings! L-Citrulline DL-MalateYet another fatigue fighter, Citrulline Malate helps increase endurance and recovery. It promotes the production of ATP, and just like Beta Alanine, it helps remove the excess build up of ammonia build up in muscles.Thus it is a massive help in boosting muscle gains and recovery as well. In our opinon, it should be included in every pre workout, no matter the goal. The best part about citrulline is that it increases nitric oxide and it does so better than argnine. When it's combined with nitrates (like it is in Mesomorph), you'll benefit from the massive and long lasting pumps. It's in a proprietary blend so it's tough to tell how much is inside. But we'll guess it's no more than 2.5 grams. Not nearly enough to be a full dosage, per the studies that's been done on CM, but it's nice to have in a concentrate pre workout. Arginine Alpha KetoglutarateIt's been a long time since we discovered how arginine is useless on it's own. But when it's in the form of AKG, it's a little bit more improved.Arginine AKG has been shown to increase strength, endurance and blood flow. When it's combined with other nitric oxide precursors like citrulline and nitrates, pumps and endurance are both increased significantly. Fortunately, the pumps from Mesomorph are probably not going to dependent from AAKG, as there's nitrates which are much more effective. Mesoswell-Cell Volumizing ATP Matrix (4.5g)Here's Whats Included With This Blend: Di-Creatine MalateL-TaurineCreatine NitrateAscorbic AcidCreatinol-O-PhosphateAgmatine Sulfate It's what we all fear...I know what you're thinking (or at least what you should be thinking6 ingredients that need to be dosed anywhere from 500mg to 3g to be effective, are you really going to benefit from this blend?Maybe. The only great thing about this blend is that it's got some nice, ergonomic ingedients to help boost performance in the gym. It'll not only increase nitric oxide and pumps, but it'll boost up strength, power, endurance and help pack on muscle.The only way to find out if there are any properly dosed ingredients here, is to simply try it. But even then it's still tough to determine. So these ingredients here have multiple purposes, but we're mainly eyeing out creatine nitrates as that should give some mean pumps!Di-Creatine MalateJust like Citrulline Malate, Creatine Malate is just creatine with malic acid binded to it. In theory, this should make creatine much more bioavaiable and muscles should be able to absorb this much more effiecently than plain creatine mono.But seeing how this is just all theory, and there are no studies done to prove this, creatine monohydrate has and will be the longest standing best form of creatine to use. You'll be able to benefit from improved endurance, and sustain high intensity before falling into fatigue from malic acid, just how like beta alanine and citrulline malate would. TaurineKnown as the volumizer and water / nutrient deliverer, taurine helps increase pumps, reduce fatigue as well as soreness. It's crucial to make sure you're supplementing or at least getting enough of it from your diet as high intensity activities can deplete its levels.Creatine Nitrate Nitrate filled pumps, I'd like some of that! The super star of this blend, creatine nitrate is creatine binded with nitrate. It's theoretically better than creatine monohydrate since it is more bioavailable but again, there are no studies that prove this. But that shouldn't stop you from creatine nitrates; the nitrates part of it will help increase pumps and a definite boost in nitric oxide levels. Furthermore, when nitrates are paired with agmatine, arginine and citrulline malate, you'll experience an synergitic effect, basically you'll be increasing nitric oxide from all kinds of pathways and angles.Since the next ingredient is dosed at 300mg (vitamin C), there is no less than 300mg of creatine nitrate. And creatine nitrate is at least 32.5% nitrate, leaving the rest for creatine. Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C, 300mg)When you've got a bunch of nitric oxide precursors together in one supplement, antioxidants are undoubtately needed.By maintaining the Synthase enyzmes for nitric oxide (eNos), Vitamin C promotes nitric oxide production and helps increase overall blood flow. So together with nitrates and citrulline, vitamin C will help maintain and increase the pump for a longer period of time.Creatinol-O-Phosphate (Less Than 300mg)Like beta alanine and citrulline, COP (Creatinol-O-Phosphate) helps increase the removal of ammonia and buffers lactic acid, which'll help increase overall performance with both endurance and strength.There isn't much research done on COP but the dosage can't be more than 250-300mg so just barely enough to see any benefits, though there are other lactic acid buffering ingredients in Mesomorph. Agmatine (Less Than 250mg)Agmatine is another powerful nitric oxide precursor and a great neurotransmitter which helps stop the breakdown of nitric oxide.Though we'd like to see at least 500mg of agmatine, there's plenty of nitric oxide boosters in here (like citrulline, nitrates, arginine AKG) so it's nice to have agmatine. There's 5 nitric oxide boosters in Mesomorph, more than enough to experience swole sessions.5 Nitric Oxide Boosters; Pumps!Mesomorph seems to be a super concentrated pre workout at first glance, but really, it's a performance boosting, pump inducing, and maybe even aggression increasing pre workout that'll give you the benefits of 2-3 simple purposes while using many different types of ingredients. Pumps are going to be ignited from different angles, so while everything is in a prop blend at sort-of secret dosages, Mesomorph so far seems to be a solid pre workout that well above other pre's. Neuromorph-Neuro Energized Stimulant Matrix (1.87g)It's What We're All Waiting For... Stimulants And Lots Of DMAA!The 1.87 Might Stimulant Blend Contains: GlucuronolactoneCaffeine AnhydrousTheobromineNaringinGeranaburn (DMAA, 65mg) Feels right at home, no?Caffeine, DMAA, and lots of reasons to go from zero to 100 to off the walls. We know there's 65mg of DMAA, and probably around 300mg of caffeine anhydrous per scoop, making Mesomorph not only a very powerful stimulant pre workout, but a solid nitric oxide igniter. The amount of stims in here will make you think twice before taking a full scoop for the very first time. In fact, if you can take just half a scoop everytime, you'll have 50 servings of this stuff. 65mg of DMAA combined with 300mg of caffeine makes for a pre workout that definitely requires a solid week break from stimulants. If it's your first time taking Mesomorph, start with half a scoop and assess your tolerance. We can't stress this enough. GlucuronolactoneYou've probably seen Glucuronolactone around in energy drinks. There it's usually underdosed, but here it's actually dosed properly at 1.3g (Red Bull only has 600mg).Anywhere from 1 to 2g is what's been studied as a ergogenic ingredient. It's suppose to help regulate glycogen in the body.It's the metabolite of glucose but really it's under researched and we'd much rather see something that's been studied and proven like choline-based ingredients. It's nice to have this anyhow. Caffeine AnhydrousThe real game changer of all stimulants... Good old caffeine. Caffeine has been shown to improve both mental and physical performance in exercise. It fights off fatigue and helps increase alertness, focus and overall performance. We're guessing there's no more than 300mg in Mesomorph, but as we mentioned earlier, take only half a scoop to test out your tolerance so you don't overstim yourself with this pre workout. Theobromine They are very much alike, as you can see. The younger brother of caffeine, theobromine has that feel-good side to it that dark chocolate has. It's a mild stimulant but you won't feel much if it's on it's own. Paired with caffeine and other stimulants, it can smooth out the stimulants and make it more of a longer lasting stimulated feeling rather than the hit and crash that traditional stimulants have.So having theobromine with other stims, makes Mesmorph a long lasting pre workout that features a mixture of both slow and fast releasing stimulants. NaringinNaringin is thought to have some energy boosting properties and is gaining popularity as it's in many fat burners. It's a compound found in grapefruit that's known to help sustain better blood sugar and stabilizing blood pressure.There's no research to back this up but it's included in here and hopefully it contributes to the energy and focus that Mesomorph is suppose to give. Geranaburn (DMAA, 65mg) Tiny bit of Meso can turn you into a Mesohead like this guy here 🙂 So here we have the special stimulant that makes Mesmorph for what it is.Geranium Oil Extract or more better known for DMAA, 1,3 dimethylamylamine, is known to giev some strong focus, increased performance and incredible appetite suppression. While Jack3d wasn't the first pre workout to feature DMAA, it gained the reputation of being the best DMAA based pre workout, but soon was removed from shelves as FDA and the general public have been questioning it's safety profile. Though it does have a few studies to prove its safety and effectiveness among healthy people, the FDA is on the path of trying to ban it for good. But thankfully that doesn't seem like it'll happen because we've got Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals to back up DMAA and is ready to spend lots of money to fight back and keep DMAA-based products on the shelves!So while marketing for DMAA isn't allowed, it still is perfectly legal to buy and use. Off The Walls Energy & Tunnel Focus1,3 is a potent stimulant, and it does its job very well. You'll no doubt experience some crazy energy and possibly some tunnel focus with Mesomorph. The v2 version doesn't have DMAA so if you're opting against DMAA for whatever reason, go for the v2 version but it might not have the kind energy that this original version does. Flavors Available Watermelon Pink Lemonade Pineapple Grape Tropical Punch Rocket Pop With 6 different flavors, it's hard not to get tempted to try them all.And to sip on them all day. Maybe while you read this review or maybe during as a late afternoon energy drink. That's a big no-no.The delicious flavors with Mesomorph might make it another reason to sip on it for fun, but trust us when we say that this should only be used as a pre workout (Before your workout).That being said, the rocket pop is a popular choice if you can't decide between them all. You should choose one that doesn't taste good so you're not tempted to use it on a daily basis.Turning Ectomorphs Into Mesomorphs?So if you consider yourself as an ectomorph and you want to make some gains, Mesomorph is an alright choice to go with, you can't go wrong with it.It's got nitrates, 4 other nitric oxide boosters, DMAA, 3.2g of beta alanine, it's unlike your traditional concentrated pre workouts. Every 15 gram scoop of Mesomorph is another step towards the next level of muscular gains. Mesomorph is a must try. All the ingredients in each blend play a role in boosting performance in one way or another. While it's all in a prop blend, swole pumps are bound to be experienced and increased performance is a for-sure. Can it replace Jack3d? Yes. And Craze by Driven Sports? Kind of, however nothing can compete with Craze (was spiked with amphetamines). But it still gives some crazy energy and focus. These BCAA supplements would make for an even better Mesomorph workout.This pre workout goes to show that DMAA has never been banned (at least in the U.S. and is still selling strong). If you want to try a pre workout with 1,3 dimethylamylamine then you'll love Mesomorph... Want To Turn Into A Super Mesomorph? Overall Rating: Mesomorph is a worthy pre workout to try. You'll likely go back to this PWO multiple times. It's got everything for a mind-blowing workout. Check Out Mesomorph Understanding The Basics of SupplementsContinue...
