Will this product be too strong for me?
This pre-workout product falls within the âmid-stimulantâ category of our range. Different pre-workouts contain different levels of ingredients, which affect each person to a different extent - so we suggest to begin use with a smaller dose (1/2 scoop) to assess tolerance. If you are a new-user of pre-workouts, your tolerance is likely to be quite low, and we recommend considering a lower-stimulant product initially.
Will this product prevent me from sleeping?
This product does contain caffeine, at a concentration of 175 mg/scoop. Every personâs tolerance to caffeine is unique and different, so it is difficult to predict what effect this may have on your level of awareness and impact on sleep. We advise against consuming this product after 4pm, and suggest to begin use with a smaller dose (1/2 scoop) to assess tolerance. For those with a high sensitivity to caffeine, we recommend considering a non-stimulant product.
Is this product safe for athletes subject to ASADA testing?
We advise not taking this substance if anti-doping testing is subject to your chosen sport.
Is this product safe during pregnancy?
We strongly advise AGAINST the use of this product throughout pregnancy.
Is this product Vegan?
This product is not certified as vegan, and may contain some animal-based products or be produced in a facility that handles animal-based products such as whey protein. Therefore, for those leading a vegan lifestyle, consult alternative options.
Does this product feel tingly like other pre-workouts?
The tingly feeling often attributed with some pre-workout products is contributed by the ingredient Beta-Alanine. This effect is healthy and normal, and we ensure has no adverse side effects. However, this product exists in various dosages among our pre-workout range, and for those with a high sensitivity or preference against this effect, we advise to check the nutrition panel for a listing of 2g or less of Beta-Alanine.
Brutal Energy is a pre-workout product and should only be used on training days.
We recommend a serve size of 2 scoops (12g).
For some users, an additonal scoops may be preferred - to increase the intensity of the product.
Mix with 300-400mL water (cold tastes best!) or as preferred to achieve your personal desired level of sweetness.
If training in the afternoon, we advise not to consume after 5pm (to ensure ease of sleep).
For optimal benefits and effects, you may consider stacking this product (see FAQs).
