jack3d - Creatine MonoHydrate

#1 Postby Wisereachday » Mon Oct 31, 2011 2:03 pm

I find very little information on this product. I've contacted the company for an official response, so I thought I would ask here.

"Jack3d" is rated by TheMuscleFeed.com as the top pre-workout supplement to take (http://www.themusclefeed.com/supplements/the-top-5-pre-workout-supplements-for-bodybuilders). I personally take Vega's Pre-Workout mix, myself, and love it to death, but i hear amazing things about creatine (when taken responsibly or cycled after checking with your doctor for pre-disposition to liver problems)

I was wondering; Is it true some forms of Creatine MonoHydrate are vegan? And has anyone investigated if this product (Jack3d) is vegan or not?

A lot of creatine monohydrate is vegan, but can't confirm on the Jack3d as I haven't really checked into it before.

A lot of guys I've traied with love the product, but they're not vegan and don't care either way. They say it's the best pre-workout energizer the've tried, I guess it's pretty potent. May or may not be vegan, though, and unless the manufacturer wants to share the details on ingredient sourcing, there's no way to know for sure.

Thanks!

I guess I will wait on a response from them. I was hoping for a cap form of creatine, but Jack3d seems to be the best regardless, so I'd prefer pursuing that first.

One thing to note, Jack3d is a pre-workout formula, and from what I've seen, doesn't have a whole lot of creatine in it (you'd be much better off getting a good, cheap vegan creatine monohydrate powder if you're just after the creatine alone), I think it only contains something like 1.4g creatine per serving and you would NOT want to take multiple servings at a time unless you want to feel like you're going to jump out of your skin based on how I've seen people who take it (like a major energy booster, makes some people anxious/agitate, etc.) Guys I've trained with who took Jack3d were pretty fired up after it hit their system, great for a pre-workout energizer, but NOT if you're simply looking for a creatine source as you'd probably have a heart attack after ingesting about 5 doses in a day!

Be aware that you can fail a drugs test by using this supplement, a few people have been caught out. It contains ingredients banned by IOC/WADA so it's definately not for use in tested competition. Something to do with the Geranium extract (1,3-dimethylamylamine) if I'm not mistaken?

Interesting, how did you find that out? I always thought beef was the main meat that creatine naturally occurred in? Fish also has really high levels of creatine as well aparrently, especially the smaller oily fish such as herring.

Thanks Matt, that's good to know. I stayed away from it because of the possibility of me failing a drugs test, you just gave me another reason to avoid it.

For many years now I have always found a good, strong cup of black organic coffee to be best pre wo supplement. Effective, cheap and sustainable.

I strongly recommend SCI-FIT Kre-Alkaline 1500 which does not cause bloating and no water retension, and you dont have to load up on it and its very cheap. http://veganproteins.com/vegan-protein- ... grams.html

Ive used it and I like it much more the monohydrate, and you only need to take 1/4 teaspoon for one serving.

I have tried straight creatine but for some reason it tastes like soap to me
