So with any supplement, the first thing to keep in mind is that each supplement has different effects / results for each person. This month's review is of MRI Black Powder Ultra. I don't sell this product or get anything for endorsing this.
I tried a sample of the original version of black powder and I really liked it. So naturally I couldn't find it anywhere. I bought the black powder ultra and gave it a try for a week of workouts. I liked the original formula better. But having said that, the ultra worked well for me.
There were no jitters or any negative side effects that I noticed. I did have increased focus, motivation, energy, strength and endurance. I like it.
I got the watermelon flavor which isn't bad. I've tasted some horrible pre-workout powders before so this was much better. Did it perform any miracles? -No. But it did allow me to get in some really good workouts and I was pleased with it.
Bodybuilding.com reviews rated it at 7.1 out of 10. You can see by their reviews that some people hate it and some people love it. It works differently for each person like I mentioned earlier.
It has worked well for me and I will continue to use it. One thing to remember is that a good rule to use is to rotate supplements frequently so you don't get used to the supplement or adapt to it like a plateau. I generally use a variety of proven supplements and take different ones at different times. If I use one brand too long, the effects / benefits diminish over time. I will add it to my pre-workout rotation mix.
And there is the "OMG it causes cancer" bit on the label. It's pretty much a required label for certain products in CA. I'm not too concerned with this. You can read about it here.
Bottom line - it works for me and I like it - Thumbs up from me. Try it if you want and see how it does for you. If you do try it, let me know what you think of it.
