I've been buying stuff online since the concept was first introduced in the late 90s and I've never felt compelled to actually write a review about anything until now, but I have to make an exception for this stuff because I absolutely love it. Even the taste, although many seem to find it disagreeable. I put one little scoopful in my coffee (around 400-500 mg; I buzz it with a milk frother for a few seconds because it doesn't solubilize that well) and while I did enjoy coffee quite a bit before, it's transformed the habit into something even better because I can really feel the extra kick. Of course it gives an almost 100 mg extra caffeine so maybe that's to be expected and the effect will go away eventually, but still I've actually caught myself thinking in the evening that I wish it was morning already so I could have my fix, and I hate mornings. I'll never drink another cup of coffee without this stuff if I can help it.Goes Well With:Coffee, protein shakes and whatever you like to take pre-workout.
The short date shouldn't affect this for a while. Have used Guarana in various forms and like it. This powder mixes well in a Nutri smoothie - Stick to recommended amount. PS My Age Group does not appear on your list - you need to up the ages by a couple of decades - we don't all keel over at 54!!Goes Well With:Any blended drink, or in soup.
I'm not a big caffeine person, so I found that even taking less then the dose given I really felt the effect. Only problem is it's very messy as soon as you open the bag a dust cloud will escape. It also doesn't seem to mix well into water so I find half of it is still in the glass.
There are no words to describe how disgusting this tastes. I tried having it in a cup of coffee as some suggested, and it made it taste really chemical, and the heat reacting with the smell was overpowering. I've tried it in a smoothie, and a protein shake and could barely stomach either. It is REALLY powerful and effective though... I made the mistake of taking it at 6.30pm one evening and did not sleep that night. If you can find something to disguise the taste then it's well worth it as a preworkout. I'll keep experimenting.Goes Well With:Nothing as of yet.
I'm really glad I found it. I've been using it for half a year now. Good price and value. I'd say it gives me better effect than coffee and lasts longer. But I'd suggest at least one day/week without it. Taste is bitter, but you can improve it with eg. stevia. Mixability is excellent only with boiled water, so I'd suggest preparing it like tea.Goes Well With:- boiled water - shake(s) also for purpose: - intense learning - intense workout
Great product, does exactly what it was meant to do, to lift and energized. Goes Well With:Add some hot water just like making a cup of tea, and it melts and ready to drink.
This product is rancid, horrible, unmixable and ..just gross. However if you are able to drink it, it does work. Goes Well With:nothing!
Guarana is simply an amazing natural product. So first of all something about the plant. Guarana has among the highest concentrations of caffeine in any plant. It contains 3.6% to 5.8% caffeine by weight (Coffee max. 2%). And this powder has 22% which is awesome. So it is a great way to increase your alertness, mood and metabolism. What I love most about this stuff, that you can mix it with almost anything. Because I am not an excessive coffe drinker, its just the best stuff on the market for me. I love to put it in my morning smoothie if I make one, but often times I just make myself a guarana tea in the morning. Just use boiled water and mix your suggested dose of guarana into it (mixes well). I like the taste of Guarana, if you dont, just make some normal fruit tea, and mix it into it. Sometimes I even mix it with hot milk and boil some oats with it, so I get my "caffein oats". If you want an awesome tip for dieting, and boosting your metabolism while losing fat, just mix it with green tea. Caffeine may work best when combined with the polyphenol compounds in green tea.Goes Well With:Tea, smoothies, water, almost anything
Just consuming it for the first time. I put 0.5ml scoop into half a 500ml bottle of diet Pepsi and shook. It mixed within seconds and it does taste really good, so unless you're on a strict diet, this is a good option to combat the taste, which if it's anything near the smell, would be horrendous mixed with water. I'm sure you could do it with orange juice etc... Too though.Goes Well With:Diet Pepsi A blocked nose
I love this stuff, mix it with coffee and it will have you bouncing before any gym session.Goes Well With:Coffee
It is one of the best supplements I've ever used. Tastes badly but gives so much energy. I hope it will be on stock soon.Goes Well With:Everything
Product is a a little weak compared to some but you can up the dosage I guess.
I would recommend Guarana Extract as an appetite suppressant. Be warned though it is very strong, and a fifth of it is caffeine. Don't make the mistake I made, and have a teaspoon as you do with coffee - it is roughly 10 times as strong as coffee. 250mg - 500mg at at a time is sufficient unless you're a hardened coffee drinker. I think that's why some of the reviewers have suffered nausea and indigestion.
I only use 500mg before training on empty stomach. It should contain around 110mg of caffeine, i replaced my 100mg caffeine with this. The difference is big, this gives me a more natural boost, although my wife is using only around 200-250mg and it seems its to much for her. She has a crash after each training and she must take a nap, she is not used to train hard, and only does some basic training and cardio. I suppose to those who train a bit harder it would not have the same crash effect. Unfortunately it has a very short life, my item was produced on 01.10.2013 and it will expire on 12.2013.
My advice is mix this into a fizzy drink like Ka or Pepsi it isn't tasty but when it kicks in, you will be blasting through sets. It keeps me awake and pushes more good stuff, plus it's burning all kinds of fat.Goes Well With:Fizzy drinks
This product is very effective and does what it says, I tried to mix this but it is like trying to mix rocks into water, so I just mixed it as much as possible in a little bit of water, took it like a shot and then had a glass of water after, the taste is disgusting and needs covering with some chewing gum or something, however the product gave me so much energy playing football and I barely stopped running. Brilliant product for a brilliant price.Goes Well With:Something strong to cover flavour
It's good I like it. A micro scoop or 2 or 3 seems fine. It's a nice part of a pre-workout stack and excellent before cardio too. Actually quite like the taste.
"Gurana is a brilliant product! Despite what others have said I find it is very mixable, just add to a small glass of orange juice and then stir with a teaspoon, admittedly you have to stir for at least a minute but eventually it does mix! I don't find the taste too bad and find that it just makes whatever you add it to a bit stronger similar to the kick of alcohol (taste wise). I would advise being careful with how much you take as ive been going for around 1.5 - 2 grams and after around 10 - 20 minutes I do feel too energized maybe a bit nausea although the effects wares away after 30 minutes and im left with a good energy uplift, currently helping me improve my mile and a half times."
"Mixes fairly well but can stick, tastes bitter but is concealed easily enough with enough fluid, even water. I get good results off of this, a single shot taken at once is like sipping off of a mug of coffee throughout the day (but much less jittery). I find, paradoxically perhaps, that I get the most stable energy by alternating between 500mg and 1 gram doses each morning (whereas, 500mg every day isn't enough, and 1 gram each day over a prolonged period seems to overstress my systems and make me feel tireder). Great product at a great price. Just make sure you have some scales to measure accurately as caffeine is not to be trifled with in high doses!"
"possibly the worst product i've ever tried, after 10 minutes my legs were like jelly, body was shaking, eyesight blury, mouth watering, I could barely walk nevermind even think about training. Needed to go to bed after 30 minutes where I stayed for 48 hours, only getting up to be sick over 20 times until it was out of my system. I took the recomended amount once and it had that affect, straight in the bin for the remainder. Never try this product unless you want to feel like your body is going to collapse and cant process properly for upto 3 days afterwards. I've used mp products for quite some time now and would warn anyone away from this. Sorry mp but I lost 2 days of work and over half a stone of goodness through this."
