Nuspeed Hardcore Energy Drink Review
Well I have had several other hardcore Energy Drinks throughout my 200 + reviews here and all of them have been exactly that - hardcore. One of them literally gave me enough energy for two days so I will come into the review of the 16 ounce Nuspeed Energy Drink a little more careful than I did with the other hardcore ED's in the past. This meant that I will read the warning labels and follow the directions before consuming. The Nuspeed Energy Drink comes with a warning saying that "this product is intended for healthy individuals only. Do not consume more than one bottle per day. Not recommended for any one under the age of 18." Nuspeed also recommends starting out with only a 1/2 bottle to access tolerance level. And that is exactly what I am going to do. I drank a 1/2 bottle before my morning workout. Here are the taste and kick results.
Nuspeed Hardcore Energy Drink Review: Taste
Alright as stated several times before, this is a hardcore energy drink, meaning it is meant for intense physical activities. That right there tells me the taste is probably not going to be the best because this drink is not focused on taste, it is focused on performance. That being said this drink definitely had no noticeable flavor at all. Maybe there was a hint of watermelon flavor? You could also taste the medicinal ingredients. Now this is not the worst energy drink I have ever tried, but the taste is definitely lacking. I didn't have to choke it down, but I was not enjoying it. Good thing I only had to drink 8 ounces (1 serving). Taste Rating - 6.0
Nuspeed Hardcore Energy Drink Review: Kick
Alright the taste was not the best, but as I stated above performance should be the main focus of this drink. And boy did it deliver. I drank 8 ounces of Nuspeed 20 minutes prior to my workout and before I even got to the gym I could feel it kick in. So I put it to the test and did a grueling lower body workout (which I hate doing). It helped me explode through all my sets and then some. I did extra sets of everything as my mind was motivated and my energy levels were off the chart. This is definitely going to be added to my list of Strongest Energy Drinks. So yeah it gave me a huge boost of energy right off the bat and the energy lasted until several hours after my morning workout. I also want to say with Hardcore ED's and working out, I usually try to double my water intake as to avoid any cramping issues. What are the energy ingredients you might ask? Well 1095 milligrams per serving of caffeine, taurine, Green Tea extract (EGCG), Yohimbine and a bunch of stuff I have never heard of. Basically this beverage lives up to it's name - it is the "new speed." Kick Rating - 10
Nuspeed Hardcore Energy Drink Review: Final Judgment
Alright the taste is not the best but Nuspeed definitely delivers on performance. If you are looking to up the anti on your workouts then you should give this one a try. If one serving of Nuspeed is not enough for your workout then don't worry there are two in each bottle. I did end up finishing the bottle 6 hours after my workout, so it is possible. But don't drink it too close to bed time, because you won't sleep. From what I can tell you can get a case of these for (24 - 16 ounce aluminum bottles) for $54.95 which puts one bottle at approximately $2.30. Final Judgment - 8.8 (more points awarded for performance as that is what this ED is meant for).
Please heed the warnings on the bottle!
