Novedex Black was unveiled last week, Giant Sport's first supplement designed for the testosterone boosting category. As exciting as news of the product was, fans may have been a bit disappointed when they heard Novedex Black was only going to be available through Giant's Australian distributor Flush Fitness. For those that were able to get past that unfortunate detail, you would have caught the one ingredient we could confirm at the time garcinia mangostana. The feature is said to be Novedex Black's main ingredient and looking extremely promising thanks to a study Giant are pushing highlighting an increase of 173% in testosterone. Today we actually have the official facts panel of the supplement for you, revealing Novedex Black's five other features. Joining garcinia mangostana which has been transparently dosed at 100mg we have 300mg maca, 250mg fenugreek, 150mg caffeic acid phenethyl ester, and 50mg each of grape seed and ashwagandha. You can see Novedex Black's formula in more detail below, and if you're in the Giant product's exclusive area you can now get a notification for when it becomes available. Places like Supplement Warehouse are giving those interested the option and have already added the testosterone booster to their website for $69.95, in preparation for when Novedex Black arrives. Nobody has any dates listed just yet for when Giant's first muscle builder is due to launch, however with notifications on option, and formula, price and flavors all confirmed the product certainly can't be too far away.
For those wondering how much they're going to have to pay for Myokem's upcoming BCAA supplement mTor Pro. The brand have just added the product to their website giving fans an idea on what the time release leucine formula is going to cost. Keep in mind the price on mTor Pro right now doesn't indicate at all what you'll end up paying tomorrow when it officially goes on sale, but more a ballpark idea on what retailers will be stocking it at. Based on what Myokem have Nitramine, Pyroxamine, Magnitropin and Alphadex listed for on their online store, you're probably going to see mTor Pro introduced as their least expensive supplement. Its direct price at the moment is $39.99, suggesting that it will be around the $30 mark like most other complex BCAA formulas such as ANS Performance's recently released Amino HP. Whatever its price eventually turns out to be in stores, do keep in mind you are going to get more per serving in mTor Pro. With a BCAA dose of 5g plus its 3g of leucine, you are basically getting 8g of BCAAs in each of the product's 30 servings, a dose you'll really only see rivaled by Cytosport and their original Monster Amino. As mentioned before you will want to be on Myokem's Lab list in time for tomorrow's 48 hour launch, since it will be an insider release and you are probably going to get a much better one time deal than the current $39.99 and maybe even the estimated $30 retail price.
If you've been wanting to give Performix ISO 9:2:2 a go ever since it launched a few weeks back then today we have your chance without you needing to pay a dime. We have teamed up with the brand themselves in order to give seven lucky people a chance to win their very own full size tub of the usually rather expensive BCAA formula. At its two exclusive retailers Performix ISO will cost you $49.99, that is at Bodybuilding.com and GNC, although if you don't have a Gold Card for GNC you'll be looking at $20 more. The seven lucky winners will be drawn over the next week with the first person picked, announced and contacted tomorrow, then one each day through to Monday next week. To get yourself in the draw all you need to do is follow both us and Performix on Twitter if you don't already, then visit the brand's Facebook page and you'll be automatically entered with your Facebook details. Do make sure you read over our terms and conditions, and get everything you need to get done before midnight Sunday, at which time no more entries will be taken.
4D Attitude is the next new supplement coming from the usually straight forward brand, which was first spotted earlier this month. Today we have an update on the product for you, bringing a little more information on the supplement itself as well as a much clearer look at it. We already knew 4D's Attitude featured 30 servings per tub, which when worked out per serving based on the product's tub weight you're looking at a rather massive 20g scoop. Some of the features and doses we now know make up that scoop include 2.5g of BCAAs, 3g citrulline malate, 3g beta alanine, 2g NO3-T betaine nitrate and 1.5g of creatine with no form officially confirmed. Other ingredients we don't know the exact numbers for that will also be in Attitude are the patented ElevATP, chocamine, agmatine sulfate and grape seed. There is likely going to be a few more in the mix, not because the current list is in anyway short, but because 4D do have a 20g scoop size leaving plenty of room for more features. For those that feel 20g would be too much to take down, Attitude is in fact right up there with the likes of PreCre and NO Xplode as that 20g can be doubled along with the doses mentioned due to the supplement having a two scoop maximum. Launch of 4D Attitude has still yet to be confirmed, although as more and more details come in it seems we are building towards something coming very soon.
If you haven't heard of Frank Medrano, he is that guy in almost every impressive fitness video you've seen on social media. His most famous piece of work would be "TRAIN INSANE Calisthenics Workout", a clip on YouTube that's now getting near the eight figure mark. You may also recognize Medrano for his work he did with BPI Sports a while back, however now there is something else you'll come to know him for. Frank Medrano has put together his own line of nutrition products called Function Supplements. The brand have launched with two different formulas, a 35 billion CFU probiotic titled 1NE, and a 2:1:1 BCAA named 2WO which also packs a bit of carnitine into each serving. To make the products stand out a little more than your usual probiotic and BCAA, and to fit in with Medrano's own lifestyle, both Function 1NE and 2WO are all natural and vegan friendly. The two both come in the usual 30 serving sizes, and in the case of the BCAA 2WO you'll have just the one flavor to choose from in watermelon. The place to go to get either of the Frank Medrano supplements is Tiger Fitness, as at the moment they are Function's exclusive retailer.
As exciting as the news was that Muscletech announced vanilla birthday cake as their 20th Birthday flavor for Nitro-Tech, despite us voting for chocolate eclair. The brand made things even more interesting by naming a second taste to be launched for the Performance Series protein powder with mocha cappuccino. Birthday cake is set to go on sale sometime next month, then mocha cappuccino a month later in May. If two new flavors weren't enough Muscletech have actually confirmed that following on from the duo is going to be another option for Nitro-Tech with a yet to be revealed recipe. The brand haven't given any clues or dropped any teaser images, just saying that there will be a third for 2015 a month after mocha cappuccino in June. There is the chance that the mystery taste is another one from Muscletech's Nitro-Tech Wars participants, however we feel if that were the case the brand would've mentioned something about it. The even bigger question to be answered here is whether or not Muscletech will continue on after their June release as by then they will have had a new flavor every month for three months, possibly starting up a limited edition series much like Black Market and their Guerrilla Editions.
Earlier in the week we got confirmation of Betancourt Nutrition turning their once solo supplement Glutamine Plus into a series of complex basic formulas with Carnitine Plus. In the announcement the brand also passed on word of a third product being a part of the Plus line based around an ingredient you probably actually see a lot more than glutamine or carnitine with Creatine Plus. Unlike Carnitine we don't have the facts panel of what will be Betancourt's third supplement for the series, although we do know of what could be all four of its features. As you'd expect Creatine Plus does pack different forms of creatine, two from what we can see, Creapure creatine monohydrate and creatine anhydrous. As well as the patented CinSulin cinnamon and something we've seen a lot of others use in creatines lately, betaine anhydrous. Without the facts panel we don't know the exact doses of any of the ingredients, however looking at Creatine Plus' front we can get at least one number with the creatine blend's total coming to 4g. More information on Betancourt's third Plus product is definitely expected between now and its launch. Which for those that missed the news on Wednesday, Creatine Plus is going to be released a month after Carnitine Plus arrives putting it somewhere in June.
Almost every week now we're seeing a new pre-workout or two, most of which come from up and coming companies. On occasions we do however see veteran brands that have already established their name put together a product for the category, something the well known Magnum Nutraceuticals have just confirmed. At the moment the brand do have a couple of pre-workout competitors most notably their capsule formula Rocket Science and stimulant free supplement Opus. What Magnum have coming next is expected to be a step up from both of those with no mention of the product's name or contents, just that it will be a pre-workout of some kind. The only other word we can get from the rather small image you can see above is "extreme", although that doesn't really help much seeing as every brand that reveals a pre-workout describes it as extreme, explosive or the best ever. Unfortunately the launch month set for the upcoming Magnum supplement is in fact two to three months away, meaning we won't find out how extreme the brand are talking for quite some time.
Our first taste of Prime Nutrition actually came by way of the brand's first Platinum Series supplement Intra-MD, which not only proved to be one of the most unique products we'd ever encountered. But it also managed to snatch a spot on our list of top 10 recovery formulas currently still sitting on there in at number six. We decided to get a hold of another Prime Platinum supplement to see if they could follow-up with an equally impressive performance, resulting in us picking up a tub of the pre-workout Max-HP. Looking at the product's contents it does feature quite a simple set of ingredients, however as we have come to discover simple and unique combinations sometimes do actually tend to work out rather nicely. Today's Max-HP review proves that theory once again, as the Prime Platinum Series pre-workout is surprisingly a little more than effective.
For those wondering whether or not ANS Performance's launch of Amino HP was the offer to take advantage of, the answer is yes. The deal was one of those offers that only comes around every so often which gave those who purchased a full size tub of the brand's new amino formula free trial size tubs of Diablo, Dilate and Ritual. The price on the set was just $29.99, dropped down from Amino HP's regular direct value of $5 more at $34.99. As good as the deal was the one question remaining even after the stack's page expired was just how much would the latest from ANS cost? An answer to that has now come in from Bodybuilding.com, as they are one of the first to put the extremely well dosed amino supplement on sale. It turns out the price is exactly the same as what ANS released Amino HP for, at a cost of $29.99 for a 30 serving bottle of course without the freebies. For those that think that's a little on the high side do keep in mind the product is packed with three times as many ingredients as you'll find in most amino formulas, with each feature's dose based on what you need not necessarily what you want to pay. In the words of Muscle Elements quality supplements aren't cheap, although if you are an ANS fan you'll already know you always get your money's worth.
