Our Performix Pump Review First Look
Performix Pump definitely left a lot to be desired, when we first looked at the ingredient list, the first thing we felt was that it was a major let down. We are not fond of blends for multiple reasons.
Blends usually under dose each ingredient and hide it by only showing the total dose of the blend, which can over-dose ingredients which are cheapest & may not provide as many benefits as a standard dose for the most important ones.
Blends also usually mean that it has a lot of filler ingredients, we like supplements that go straight to the point and only use ingredients scientifically proven to help with what we’re looking for, be it pumps, testosterone boosting, protein synthesis, etc.
Regardless of how it looks from the outside, we still have decided to write the review. However, we also recommend you to take a look at these pre-workouts as they also boost pumps & enhance athletic performance during training.
We will focus on the most essential ingredients in this supplement as well as their benefits & downsides.
Niacin is also known as Vitamin B3; it’s an essential supplement for your Body.
Supplementing in Vitamin B3 helps with your general health, which includes improvements in your cholesterol and lowers risk of cardiovascular issues.
- Improves cholesterol level
- Lowers risk of cardiovascular diseases
- Helps with diabetes
- Enhances brain function
- Promotes skin formation & health
- Nausea / Dizziness
- Allergic reactions
As you can see there’s plenty of benefits, while there are also some downsides, they only happen when taking extremely high doses or when you’re allergic to it.
L-Citrulline is an essential amino acid; Athletes commonly use L-Citrulline to improve their performance. Supplementation helps with reducing fatigue while enhancing endurance & helps with cardiovascular health. It also increases blood flow & enhances your metabolism.
L-Citrulline turns into L-Arginine once it gets to the kidneys and has been scientifically proven to be more efficient in increasing L-Arginine in your body than actual direct supplementation of L-Arginine.
A significant benefit of L-Citrulline is that it has absolutely NO side effects unless in very high doses of over 10g, which may then result in diarrhea.
- No meaningful side effects
- Improves blood flow
- Enhances metabolism
- Massive & long pumps
- Reduces fatigue
- Enhances endurance for long training sessions
- Cardiovascular health improved
- Overall improves athletic performance
- Diarrhea when overdosing
L-Citrulline has been shown to have best effects when taking between 5g to 6g, however, since it’s a blend, we have no way to measure how much we’re actually taking per serving.
Well, the truth is that there’s really no other significant ingredients in this blend. Yeah, you heard that right, there are nine ingredients in this blend, but only two are actually relevant, that’s exactly why we hate blends.
Ashwagandha extract also has scientific support that it improves endurance and athletic performance, however, that’s in dosages over 2000mg, considering how this blend roughly has 5000mg split between 8 ingredients, we highly doubt that it’ll be in high enough dosage to provide any benefit whatsoever.
The good news is that at least it has L-Citrulline which is the best ingredient to improve pumps, but then again, we don’t know the dosage.
Honestly, this is a bit hard to say, we generally recommend to follow the instructions, in this case, it would be one serving. However, this supplement seems to be slightly underdosed.
You can try one serving for a week and see if you’re happy with the results, if you’re still not happy you can try increasing to 1 serving and half maximum. We don’t recommend to go over one serving and a half due to L-Citrulline causing diarrhea when taken in quantities over 10g, and since we don’t know the exact dosage per serving, we prefer to be safe than sorry.
Remember that by taking one serving and a half it’ll reduce the overall servings from 40 to 30 which should last you for a month and a week if you’re going to the gym 5x a week, lasts longer if you’re going less frequently.
Effects & Benefits
Performix Pump, although in a blend, does contain L-Citrulline which is without a doubt the most essential ingredient for a massive & lasting pump so without a doubt it’ll provide you with the effect you’re looking for.
There are also other benefits such as improved blood flow, helps with cardiovascular health & enhances athletic endurance & performance.
There are no meaningful adverse effects when taking this supplement. The only instances where some side effects happen are when overdosing specific ingredients, but even those side effects aren’t much of an issue. As long as you follow our dose suggestion you won’t have a problem.
Overall, it does what it’s supposed to do, and that’s what it’s essential. We would still prefer for the dosage to be a bit higher and if possible not in a blend so we could know the exact quantities of each ingredient.
With a slightly higher dosage, the overall health benefits & athletic benefits would be substantially more significant which is something that should have been the goal, to begin with when manufacturing this supplement.
In the end, we believe there’s a few better options to look at, however, if you still insist in taking Performix Pump then rest assured that it does what it’s supposed to do.
