This was our first time taking any product by Nutrex Research so we went into the review with no expectations. The black and red label says "USE WITH CAUTION DUE TO EXTREME POTENCY". Let's see how true that really is. Onto the test.
Hemo Rage Black Taste (does it taste good?)
Average Tasting - Hemo Rage Black tasted like cheap kool-aid, but it wasn't tough to get down. It's an easy drink.
Serving Size Effectiveness (is the recommended 1 scoop actually enough)
Yes, the Nutrex Research recommended serving size of 1 scoop (9.80g) was effective.
Solubility (does Hemo Rage Black dissolve well in water)
Solubility was good - It mixed pretty good.
Defecation (does Hemo Rage Black make you poop)
Yes, we had to hit the bathroom after 36 minutes of taking 1 scoop.
Activation Time (how long before Hemo Rage Black kicks in)
Hemo Rage Black kicked in at about 33 minutes.
Sensation Level (do you feel anything with Hemo Rage Black?)
We experienced a high level of sensation with 1.5 scoops.
Duration (how long does Hemo Rage Black last)
Duration for Hemo Rage Black was about 2 - 5 hours.
Performance (does Hemo Rage Black increase performance in the gym)
Hemo Rage Black gave us phenomenal increase in strength, and energy, but we experienced a severe crash midway through a set and we had to stop training due to feeling nauseated and disoriented. This was the only supplement to ever do that to us.
Yes, Hemo Rage Black had the worst affect on sleep of any preworkout supplement we have tested. Definitely take that warning label seriously.
Their claims are pretty accurate. For a short amount of time it gave us a crazy boost in energy, but it was a short burst and half way through our workout we crashed.
Final Thoughts on Hemo Rage Black Watermelon
Hemo Rage was fantastic for strength gains and increased energy but at the same time was one of the scariest pre-workout supplements we have tested due to it causing us to crash hard in the middle of our workout (reduced endurance). It also made us feel nauseous after our workout (post-workout), and it had extreme negative effects on sleep; Keeping us up til 7am the next day was not fun. The servings per container was not spot on, as we only needed 1 scoop to feel it.
If you plan on a short intense workout session, and don't plan on driving anywhere, and don't need sleep - this product is perfect supplement for you.
