When manufacturing giants USPlabs created the pre-training energy supplement known to us as Jack3d they truly did stumble across a gem. In a nutshell, Jack3d offers everything and more you could ever expect from a pre-training supplement including muscle gorging strength, energy, power and endurance. The descriptive list of words there could go on forever but it’s important to stick with the task in hand!
It’s always easier to evaluate the effective of a supplement by comparing it to others currently available on the market. Unfortunately, this task is made rather difficult due to the fact that not many other pre-training supplements even come close to Jack3d, let alone compete head to head against it. The problem with the majority of pre-workout powers is that they’re nothing but unhealthy, insulin loaded, fat storing fillers that quite frankly you and your body can do without.
It’s a shocking fact but many of the pre-workout formulas which are available on the shelves and utilised daily do nothing but assist you in gaining body fat. Now call me a syndic but this just isn’t acceptable!
Enough with the moaning, let’s start to understand and appreciate the praise being aimed at USPlabs and their wonder supplement Jack3d. This pre-training supplement is marketed with the promise of enabling the desired outcomes without filling your body with unwanted ingredients and fillers that are found within many other pre-workout supplements. Numerous ingredients purposefully omitted include maltodextrin, which processes a higher glycemic index than sugar, magnesium, which can have the undesired effect of constant visits to the toilet and artificial flavourings and colourings.
With these ingredients left out, let’s now contemplate what contents make up this product. As with many pre-workout supplements, Jack3d contains nitric oxide, creatine and caffeine but there are three further ingredients which help to separate this from the rest;
USPlabs Jack3d only contains natural flavouring and colouring, which in the pre-training supplement category is really quite impressive!
As mentioned above, creatine monohydrate features within the make-up of the Jack3d supplement. While you may negate the increase in hydrogen ion levels in skeletal muscle by increasing carnosine levels, you still must overcome one more obstacle in order to prevent fatigue whilst working out. In this case, you require a compound which can ultimately increase the adenosine triphosphate (ATP) levels in muscle. ATP is a high energy nucleotide which acts as the major energy carrying molecule in our bodies. Consequently, muscle fatigue is also related to energy loss in skeletal muscle, specifically, ATP being converted to adenosine diphosphate (ADP). In effect, one phosphate group is lost and must be replenished in order for the muscle cell to continue on working.
By supplementing with creatine, you are able to increase the levels of phosphocreatine in the target muscle. Phosphocreatine is a high energy buffering compound which is able to donate a phosphate group to ADP, allowing the formation of ATP once again. Although this may sound overly scientific, in short, you can prevent or reduce fatigue from occurring by increasing phosphocreatine levels, which in turn will allow for the regeneration of ATP from ADP. Jack3d allows this regeneration to occur, allowing you to train longer and harder.
Just for an additional bonus, the inclusion of creatine monohydrate within the supplement may also increase the swelling of muscle cells, potentially increasing protein synthesis whilst at the same time inhibiting catabolism. It’s a win-win situation in the truest sense of the word and will result in an increased in muscular mass.
You may also notice that the Jack3d packaging is ultra concentrated and in some comparisons is 2/3 times smaller than comparable brands, whilst at the same time providing the same servings. There’s simply no room for fillers, artificial flavours or dyes here and the minimal packaging simply means you’re getting the strongest, healthiest supplement whilst at the same time allowing you to receive the best value.
Ok, so you’re probably sat there thinking what the catch is right? Wondering whether all these incredible ingredients will be ruined by the taste or some other flaw? In a word, no! Most pre-training supplements taste at best can be described as tolerable; the word for Jack3d is enjoyable. Without all those fillers it gives you a relatively natural taste without leaving you bloated and sluggish. Furthermore, with a variety of flavours from which to choose from, you will be spoilt for choice!
It truly is a phenomenal supplement.
Jack3d directions for use: stir 1-3 ultra concentrated scoops with approximately 4-8 ounces of cold water and consume 30-45 minutes prior to commencing exercise. Due to extreme potency of this supplement, it's highly recommended to assess tolerance by using a 1 scoop serving before consuming full dose, especially if you are sensitive to stimulants, before building up your tolerance levels. Some individuals may find 1, 1.5 or 2 scoops per serving more than adequate so don’t necessarily assume that you will require the maximal dose stated. Do not exceed 3 scoops in any 24 hour period.
As Jack3d is a pre training energy supplement it does contain numerous stimulants which will cause focus and alertness. This is perfect for the gym setting but is not ideal when trying to sleep! Always consider your sleep pattern and avoid taking Jack3d after 6pm if possible. If you can only train late at night then you may wish to reduce the serving size in order to allow rest and relaxation following your gym session, but again this will be dictated by personal preference and sleep patterns required.
