Hemo Rage Pre Workout Is Back Again! (Review and Breakdown)
Nutrex is bringing back their famous pre workout, Hemo Rage with an all new formula to help you kill it in the gym. Many times when product is reformulated, it’s leaves us wanting more and missing old formula. After-all, why fix what isn’t broken, right? But, sometimes a new formula comes out of the dark and sweeps us off our feet. In this post, we’ll be diving into the new Hemo Rage Unleashed formula and comparing it to the previous version of Hemo Rage.
Hemo Rage Pre Workout from Nutrex Research is a classic pre workout that became a staple in many gym goers supplement stack. Unfortunately, like many popular pre workouts, Hemo Rage underwent formula changes. The OG formula, Hemo Rage Black Ultra Concentrate, was like a secret treasure for intense energy, incredible pumps, and laser-like focus. It was then reformulated to Hemo Rage Underground, another stim-heavy pre workout. Now, we have Hemo Rage Unleashed!
When Hemo Rage Black got it’s new look, a new formula came with. And unfortunately this included the removal DMAA. But, the new formula was still a stim-pack pre workout. However, the formula then and now is a proprietary blend of ingredients. So we aren’t able to identify how much of each ingredient is in the formula. All together, there is 5.2g of active ingredient in this formula.
Our first ingredient is Betaine Anhydrous. This ingredient can help promote better pumps and endurance. It’s a naturally occurring amino acid coming from Beet Extract. This ingredient have a variety of benefits from anti-inflammatory properties to improving body composition and muscular performance. (1,2)
Our next ingredient, Taurine is a conditionally essential amino acid. Meaning, your body can produce this amino acid, but there are times you may need to supplement it. Taurine plays a role in many bodily functions like maintaining hydration, digestion, supporting central nervous system (CNS) functions, and even may aid in regulating your immune system.(3) For the gym, Taurine may aid in protecting muscles from cell damage and oxidative stress, while also removing waste products that lead to muscle fatigue. (4)
The next ingredient is Beta Alanine, which is one of the most popular ingredients in pre workouts. This ingredient is infamous for causing an itchy-tingling sensation with pre workouts (paranesthesia). (5) This ingredient can help reduce muscle fatigue and improve work capacity by increasing carnosine levels. Carnosine can act as a buffer against muscle acidosis. This action reduces muscle acidity (the burn) during high-intensity exercises, which can help you push further. (6)
Agmatine is a metabolite of to Arginine that acts similar to betaine. Current research suggests it may promote nitric oxide (NO) synthesis better than arginine, as well as properly regulate cellular energy. This makes agmatine sulfate a popular pump-inducing ingredient, but further research is needed on this ingredient (7,8)
N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine (NAT) may be a more bioavailable form of L-Tyrosine that can support cognitive processes like focus. However, NAT may not convert to Tyrosine very well. Yet, with the addition of other focus NAT can be a great addition to the formula. (9)
Following DMAE is L-theanine. Interestingly, this is not a common ingredient in pre workouts. Theanine is an anti-stress amino acid, often recognized for its “relaxation without sedation” effect. But, there may be a synergistic effect when combined with caffeine. Research suggests that this combination may promote heightened focus, awareness, and energy. (12)
Caffeine is one of the most popular stimulants available. This Central Nervous System (CNS) stimulant can help promote energy, focus, and mood and even support weight loss. (13) But it’s important to understand where you fall in line with your tolerance to caffeine to avoid negative side effects like jitteriness. (14)
This ingredient may help improve the energy duration of a pre workout. But, the research on these ingredients is limited.†
Hordenine is similar in chemical structure to Synephrine. Because of this, they may work similarly by promoting energy, mood, and even thermogenesis. (15)
Theacrine is another energy source from this pre workout that may provide a smooth energy boost without jitters while promoting mental clarity and mood. (16)
This is a new ingredient emerging in the supplement world. N-Coumaroyldopamine is a plant chemical found in cocoa. It is a beta-2 agonist compound similar to clenbuterol but without any side effects. This is an ingredient that helps with lean muscle gains and fat loss.†
Rauwolscine, also known as Alpha yohimbine or Rauwolfia Vomitoria, may be a stronger version of the popular fat burner ingredient yohimbine.† Where yohimbine is a stimulant and an alpha-2 antagonist, meaning it can stimulates adrenaline and noradrenaline receptors. This action can suppress appetite, improve energy and focus, and mobilize fat. (16, 17)
The first important thing to note with this formula is that the Canadian formula is depicted in this image (and on the product page). So other variations of Hemo Rage Underground were available prior to being discontinued. In comparison to Hemo Rage Black UC, there are seven (7) ingredients shared:
- Betaine Anhydrous
- Beta Alanine
This left only 2 different ingredient, Acetyl-L-Carnitine and Choline Bitartrate. The other difference in the formula is ingredient dosage enough. In other version of Hemo Rage, including other Underground version, this information may not be available.
Choline bitartrate is our first focus enhancer in Godzilla Pre Workout. There are a bunch of cognitive benefits from choline. It also plays a role in cell structure, cellular messaging, fat transport and metabolism, DNA synthesis and nervous system maintenance. These functions support brain health and can support improved brain functions like memory and focus (20).
Finally, we arrive at the newly available Hemo Rage Unleashed! This formula again is in a proprietary blend, but Nutrex has disclosed that there is 400mg of caffeine in this formula. So this is definitely not a beginner friendly pre workout. Compared to the other versions of Hemo Rage, this version shares six (6) ingredients:
- Betaine Anhydrous
This leaves three (3) new ingredients to the formula, L-Citrulline, Alpha GPC, and BioPerine®.
L-Citrulline is a nonessential amino acid that can increase arginine, the primary substrate for nitric oxide biosynthesis. Unlike arginine supplementation, citrulline isn’t taken up by the liver. Instead, it is transported to the kidneys and broken down to arginine. (21) Additionally, citrulline can help stimulate protein synthesis in skeletal muscle. But citrulline is most commonly known for improving vascular function through increased L-arginine bioavailability and nitric oxide synthesis, which can support reducing blood pressure. (22,23)
AlphaSize® Alpha GPC:
Alpha GPC is another ingredient for improving cognitive processes like memory and attention. (24)
Finally, we have Bioperine® an ingredient for improving absorption and availability of the other ingredients in this formula. (25)
How To Take Hemo Rage Unleashed:
The manufacturer recommends mixing on (1) level scoop into 8oz of cold water and consume 30 minutes prior to working out. Use only 1 serving in a 24-hour period. Never exceed 1 scoop. Stay hydrated and drink plenty of water throughout the day. Store bottle in a cool dry place.
This is a solid high-stim pre workout. The addition of L-theanine may help prevent a crash from the 400mg of caffeine in each serving. You’ll likely want to start with half a scoop or less first to assess your tolerance. Though because the grams per servings are low, we don’t expect Hemo Rage Unleashed to be a great endurance/performance pre workout. To get more of these effects before the gym, you may want to consider stacking with Niox or another non-stim pump product. †
Compared to the other versions of Hemo Rage, this version is a perfect blend of both complexes with more of a focus on improving focus. If you’ve tried other focus/nootropic pre workouts like BAMF, this might be a good option to cycle with. †
