Hey everyone, just found out that BPI is coming out with a brand new product which will be marketed under their Diamond Series. This product is labeled as a pre-workout / diet pill and its name is BPI B4. As many of you have already caught on, BPI likes to use different ingredients that are not well known. This is not to say that they do not work, but it just makes it difficult to find information on what it does. I tried to do a little research on my own to help those of you that might be interested in what B4 is.

Here is what BPI has to say about B4

“This is the most exclusive high-end sports performance and weight loss product available anywhere,” said James Grage, Vice President of BPI Sports. “Every component of this formula was carefully developed utilizing the absolute highest standards and the most cutting-edge non-commercialized ingredients available anywhere in the world.”

I will first go over what the ingredients are and then try my best at giving credibility to what BPI B4 claims on the bottle.

BPI B4 Ingredients

B4 Ingredients


Niacin (as nicotinic acid)


– Known as B3, may cause a flush effect. It is a water soluble nutrient that helps with DNA repair, hormone regulation, and proper blood flow.


Caffeine (as caffeine anhydrous)


– One of the more common forms of caffeine, anhydrous has been shown to be more effective at absorption than through coffee or tea.


Dendrobium nobile (stem)


– BPI B4 uses a patented formula of Dendrobium extract called, DENDROMAX. Dendrobium has become very popular through the year 2012 because of the ban on Geranium. The effects of Dendrobium have been shown to help aid in weight loss and increase metabolism, while increasing your sense of well being.


Canavalia gladiata (seed)


– This is extracted from a plant called sword bean. Some studies have shown that it may help increase in the production of ATP, which is helpful during explosive exercise, and will reduce fatigue(1).


Psoralea corylifolia (seed)


– Used in Eastern Indian culture to help heal people, there is little known scientific facts. It does contain a large amount of flavonoids. P. Corylifolia extracts have been shown to act as a norepinephrine-doapmine reuptake inhibitor(2).


Sophora japonica (leaf) (Quercetin)


– Quercetin has gradually gained in popularity due to its ability to be an anti-aging agent. Many people supplements with Quercetin to help fight aging and improve overall health.


Red wine concentrate

- Known to be a super antioxidant. Red Wine Concentrate may contain resveratrol which has been correlated to help fight fat oxidation, and improve muscle retention.


Pausinystalia yohimbe (bark)


– One of the original fat burners on the market. Known to attack brown fat cells and improve thermogenics. It has also been thought to be an aphrodisiac.

Now that we have covered what the ingredients are in BPI, let us take a look at the three main bullet points in which B4 claims to accomplish.

Adipose Tissue Regulator

- I would say that this is highly likely. The combination of caffeine anhydrous, Red wine concentrate and Pausinytalia yohimbe may be a very effective way to attack adipose fat.

CNS Stimulant

- Absolutely! Caffeine Anhydrous with Dendrobium will activate the CNS and help you stay alert and focused for an extend period of time.

Pre Workout for women

Written by bigredhulk. Posted in Articles, Pre-Workouts, Reviews, Supplements

In today’s world women are just as hard working(if not harder) as men are in the gym. Though they may not be lifting as much as men are in the gym they are hitting the weights and have beautiful physiques. Many products on the market are designed and marketed to men, besides the routine diet pill.

Many women look at taking pre workouts but are unsure about supplementing with them because of certain ingredients like creatine. Though creatine isn’t bad for women, and can be beneficial, it can be an detractor for many women. Also many of the pre workouts work on giving big muscle pumps and can cause upset stomachs for smaller women, opposed to designing a pre workout that can help boost the amount of calories burned while preserving muscle.

Amphetalean has been a top selling diet pill for women who live active lifestyles because it was designed to help improve athletic performance while cutting fat. Due to the popularity of this product Beast Sports decided to make it into powder form for men and women to use as a pre workout. The reason why Amphetalean Powder works so well as a non creatine pre workout is that it uses cAMP to help improve muscle response. Amphetalean Powder also contains calcium which is very important for active women and bone health.

Though Amphetalean Powder is not specifically designed for women it is a great pre workout for them. Amphetalean has also been shown to increase thermogenisis. Having an increase in thermogenisis helps to increase the amount of calories burned while also elevating body temperature. This means that supplementing with Amphetalean before a workout will increase the amount calories burned while increasing the amount of water that is sweated out.

Amphetalen Powder can also be used in replacement of a diet pill during the day. Instead of taking a diet pill you can have the option of sipping on a delicious and refreshing drink and still get the results you desire. Amphetalean Powder is a two in one combo for the active person who is looking to cut pounds and have a great workout.

If you are a woman that has already tried Amphetalean Powder and wants to improve her muscle recovery time without the extra calories you can try AminoLytes by Beast Sports.

What is all the Craze about?

Written by bigredhulk. Posted in Articles, Reviews

If you have been working out over the last 5 years, you have seen that many companies use a concentrated formula pre workout. The reason why they call them concentrate is because they use the basics to give you a pump and energy. There is a debate on whether or not the concentrated pre workouts are better than the full size pre workouts. What if you could get a concentrated serving pre workout, but with a full dose effect each time you take it.

Craze by Driven Sports

Craze pre workout mix is one of the most innovative pre workouts on the market. Today we will be talking about three ingredients that Craze contains and why Craze stands above the rest.

Dendrobium Extract

Most stimulants on the market restrict blood flow. Some popular ones would be caffeine and geranium. Though some research has shown that this does not have a huge impact on the pump factor during working out, it still would be nice to have a stimulant that didn’t do that. Well that day has come! Dendrobium is from types of orchids, and offers Phenylethylamine. For those of you who do not know what Phenylethylamine is, it offers stimulant like effects while giving a boost in mood and concentration. Research has shown that Dendrobium does not restrict blood flow but actually helps open up veins, which helps the body to be more receptive to the pump.

Betaine Anhydrous

Thought to work similarly as an antioxidant, Betaine Anhydrous is a great product to help boost the lipotropic effects in the body. Betaine Anhydrous works by oxidizing lipids causing fat loss. Taking Betaine Anhydrous before a workout increase fat metabolism, using the fat to as energy. Not having Betaine Anhydrous in your pre workout can leave you feeling tired mid workout, because your muscles are being sucked dry of energy.


You should all know about creatine monohydrate, but just in case you don’t here is a quick review. Creatine is the most studied supplement on the market. Having Creatine in a pre workout is very helpful because it helps with ATP production. Each rep your body release ATP, and if you consume Creatine before a workout your endurance will increase. If you are able to do more reps, you will get stronger – it’s simple math! Some companies use Creatine Monohydrate in their concentrate pre workout formula, but they don’t use enough to give you the results you need.

Should I take Craze?

Craze is a strong concentrate pre workout that gives you a full serving in one small scoop. If you are looking for the next big stimulant pre workout that will give you the power to push the extra reps then you should try Craze by Driven Sports.


Driven Sports Supplements

There are few companies that are as innovative as Driven Sports. If you were to look at their products and compare them to the rest you will notice that they use more unique ingredients than other companies. The goal of this article is to give insight into Driven Sports and their products. Driven Sports carries three products – Activate Xtreme, Triazole, and Craze. If you are looking for innovative products, read on and see what stands Driven Sports apart.

Activate Xtreme

If you have been looking for a true natural testosterone booster, then you will be interested in Activate Xtreme. Many companies started using Divanil as a testosterone booster. There is more to boosting testosterone than just take products that boost testosterone, you need to be taking a product that affect growth hormones and blocks estrogen.  All too often companies will make products that boost testosterone but, leave you high and dry on the other important stuff. Activate Xtreme helps to activate Luteinizing Hormones, and growth hormones. Both LH and GH are important for muscle growth. Activate Xtreme also regulate estrogen. Some people think that shutting down estrogen production is a good idea, wrong! Estrogen helps with fat, and fat helps with health testosterone production. Regulating Estrogen helps to keep testosterone levels high without negative estrogen effects, and allows you to get the most out of your testosterone booster.


Many guys will use a aromatize inhibitor instead of a testosterone booster. The thought on this is that it doesn’t affect the testes as much and gives more of a hard muscle look, not a bulky muscular look. After the age of 30 most men should think about getting an estrogen blocker. Too much estrogen can actually hurt the body, causing it to store excess fat, and shorten the sex drive. Triazole use a innovative ingredients called pZole. This product helps to regulate estrogen levels, clean the liver, and offers anti-oxidant support. Whether you are a gym rat or a guy that sits behind a desk all day, supplementing with Triazole, can really help to improve overall health. Also while on this product you will notice an increase in sex drive – which is nice!


Many companies have a concentrated pre workout formula, but what many of them used as a stimulant was geranium. Driven Sports Craze uses an extract called, Dendrobium. This ingredient works far better than geranium because it does not restrict blood flow and help give you long lasting energy without a crash. Taking one scoop of Craze can give you the same effects, even after three weeks! Also, Craze uses two ingredients that have been proven to build muscle – Creatine and Beta Alanine. You may notice on other products, but Craze uses the right dosage to make sure you get the most out of your workout.

Quality, Innovative, Science

If you want a quality supplement that are innovative and backed by science then Driven Sports Supplements will be a great choice for you.

Jack3d Micro Vs. Jack3d

Jack3d Going Out Of Stock – Limited Supply
buy jack3d

buy jack3d
If you are reading this you may be wondering why USP Labs came out with a new formula of Jack3d.  USP Labs works well and gives many people great workouts, so why would USP Labs change the formula of Jack3d? There are many thoughts to this, and it may be in part to the geranium extract that they are using, but I would also have to argue that more and more companies have a concentrated pre workout mix. Driven Sports has Craze, Bpi made 1MR Concentrate and now we have Jack3d Micro.


What makes Micro different?

Micro uses a more superior pump matrix. The original formula uses Arginine AKG which is only useful for about 15 min, and then it fades out. It uses Agmatine and Arginine Nitrate. Agmatine has been shown to be more powerful than Arginine in producing Nitric Oxide. Arginine Nitrate may look familiar because it is also in USP Labs Yok3d. Arginine Nitrate is a more sustained release of Nitric Oxide because of it being a Nitrate. Jack3d Micro should give you a pump for your entire workout.


As hinted above the Micro formula no longer has Geranium in it. Instead the Micro formula uses two unique ingredients that you will soon see in many other stimulant based supplements. 3,4-dihydroxycinnamic acid and Norcoclaurine have been shown to enhance mental focus as well as help with NO production. Many stimulants, including geranium, restrict blood flow and do not allow you to get the most out of your pre workout. These stimulant boosters in the new  Micro can improve absorption and open up the veins to give you a better pump.

Jack3d Micro vs Jack3d

Is Jack3d Micro Better than Jack3d?


Only time will tell if Micro is better than the original formula. Looking at the ingredient listing I would say that  if you drink Jack3d Micro 30 Minutes before a workout, after a high carbohydrate meal I think you will get better muscle pumps than the original Jack3d. The new stims in  Micro will be the next big thing, and has been seen in other products already. I think that the new formula will give good results, but eating properly beforehand will really impact the results in the gym due to the Nitrates.


Which one do you prefer?
