Mr Hyde Nitro X, Product Overview
I am doing this review because Mr Hyde Nitro X is one of my favorite pre workout supplements. I switch brands from time to time as my body will adapt to a particular pre workout(called tolerance), but I will always come back to Mr Hyde. I even have several friends from the gym that keep it in their car so they will always have it when they get to the gym. It also seems that for the low price of $27 you can’t go wrong!
Mr Hyde Nitro X is scientifically shown to promote pumps, vascularity, strength, mental focus, sustained energy, and increased motivation giving this pre workout supplement a strong review and a great pump at the gym.
We will be reviewing the pros and cons of Mr Hyde Nitro X and the best way that I’ve learned to take this supplement. I thought it would also be important to look at why these particular ingredients work so well, and then a bit of my personal experience with this pre workout supplement. Please leave any comments that you may have about Mr Hyde or your personal preference at the bottom of this post.
Mr Hyde Nitro X Review
I ranked this pre workout conservatively at an 8.5 out of 10, since I have never truly had a ten. Perhaps my expectations are too high within pre workout supplements, but I’m hoping for a 10 one day. When it happens, I will be sure to pass that on to you. As far as this 8.5, I have been more than satisfied with this pre workout.
Within 15 minutes of consuming it, I was already feeling the effects as well as that pre workout tingle. This tingle is most likely from the Nitrosigine which is simply an amino complex that we will discuss later.
Within 30 minutes of drinking Mr Hyde, I was amped up and ready to go. Another pro for Mr Hyde is the length of time that it is active. It stuck with me through a hard hour of working out, along with another hour of running afterwards. You can get all of this motivation and energy and still be able to sleep at night.
Speaking of motivation, the way I felt mentally helped me focus on working harder and longer. I felt the muscle pump that it provided when I went hard, and I could see my veins showing a bit more from the rush of blood going to my muscles. This vascularisation is an important part, so you know that your pre workout is performing like it should.
At the end of the day, I felt tired yet satisfied with my challenging workout routine. No the hunger begins. BTW, I will be reviewing some great Post Workout Supplements(protein powders and drinks) in the future since these are vital for muscle growth and recovery.
Mr Hyde Nitro X Pros
The flavor that I purchased this time was called “Peachy Oh!” For one, the flavor is great, so I do recommend purchasing this flavor if they have it. It has a little bit of your average concentrated kind of after taste, but it isn’t trying to mask the flavor of it with too much sweetness. This taste is surprisingly mellow for containing 400mg of caffeine.
This awesome amount of energy that Mr Hyde provides will also burn a lot of calories during your workout, therefore cutting fat and promoting weight loss.
A definite pro for Mr Hyde is the price. It is on the low side of pre workouts, so feel that you get a lot of bang for the buck with this one.
The amount of energy this provides is more than sufficient, which is one of the most important things in a pre workout. Also the duration of the energy was enough to power through the workout and more.
Mr Hyde has plenty of the necessary amino acids to give you that muscle pump and aid in muscle recovery. This in turn increases muscle growth.
If Mr Hyde is a little over the top for you, I recommend trying Dr Jekyll Nitro X. This is an alternative pre workout made by Pro Supps(the same company). Just as the real story of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, there is a calm one and a crazy one. The Dr Jekyll is a caffeine and sugar free alternative. It still had the ingredients to give you that pump and the energy, and has great customer reviews so give it a try too.
Mr Hyde Nitro X Cons
There are not many cons, and actually only one that I know about. There is 400mg of Caffeine in this pre workout, which is near the top of the spectrum for pre workouts. The range is usually between 200-500mg, so this is above average.
If you are caffeine sensitive, this could cause you some discomfort. This includes mainly some tingling, headache and you could even have nausea. I haven’t found these Mr Hyde side effects with myself.
There is also a change that it could keep you up at night if you don’t take it early enough in the day. I have had pre workouts like this and it is not fun rolling around all night.
Luckily, there is a 30 day satisfaction guarantee on this product if it does not work for you. There is also a chance that this will only happen the first time you take it, as your body will adjust and get us to it.. Once again, I have haven’t had any issues with it and far as I know, neither have any of my gym friends.
What Makes Mr Hyde Nitro X Work so Well
It’s all in the ingredients. As we have discussed, the amount of caffeine at 400mg really helps it kick hard. There is also another ingredient called Nitrosigine that is created by bonding L-arginine, Inositol, and Potassium Silicate that is very effective for your workouts.
Nitrosigine increases vasodilation and increased muscle pump bringing more oxygen to your muscles. This promotes faster recovery between exercises(or sets) and gives you more strength.
A vital ingredient is Creatine, which most people have heard of at one time or another. Creatine, through a series of chemical reactions will allow the muscles to produce more energy to fuel your workout.
The 3rd biggest factor is the Beta Alanine. This is an amino acid that, as you work out helps remove the acidity in you muscles. This regulates the acidity levels in your muscles. This is important because it increases endurance, lifting performance and increases muscle growth.
Mr Hyde also prides itself in the ingredient Teacrine. This product gives you jitter-free and sustained energy. It also claims to promote positive mood elevation and mental clarity.
Many other pre workouts contain some of these same ingredients, but in different forms or ratios. Mr Hyde seems to have achieved a great mix of these ingredients in their pre workout.
How to Take Mr. Hyde Pre Workout
Between reading the instructions and my personal experience, I would recommend taking Mr Hyde 15 to 30 minutes before your workout. I generally try to take it right before I leave the house, so by the time I begin my routing it is already starting to kick in.
The manufacturer recommends using 1 scoop of pre workout to 8oz of water. Here is a picture of how I mixed it in my shaker for this review.
At 190 lbs, I will usually take about a scoop and a half. If this is the first time you have taken this supplement, it is recommended to start out with a little less than a serving. Then slowly adjust the serving over time to get the effect that you want. This will prevent any of the side effects that we went over. One more thing, don’t drink this within about 4 hours of bedtime!!
The Mr. Hyde Conclusion:
As you can tell, I like this product a lot. Both myself and my friends like to use it in our pre workout supplement rotation. If you can handle the amount of caffeine in this one like the majority of people it should be a good fit for you, and do wonders for your exercise routine.
In case you are not into the heavy caffeine, don’t forget about the other Pro Supps pre workout supplement called Dr Jekyll Nitro X. This is a caffeine and sugar free product that focuses on it’s pump and energy using other ingredients. It sounds like a great concept, and will be reviewing it at a later date.
As far as Mr Hyde Nitro X, I feel that the price of $27 is a great value. I’m very satisfied with the flavor, since it doesn’t taste like chemicals as some other pre workouts that I’ve tried. So I feel like this is a well rounded pre workout supplement that lives up to a name like Dr Hyde, it is a great value, taste and doesn’t keep you up all night.
