Pro Supps is a brand that has made a big impact in the relatively short time they have been around, finding a lot of success with their pair of supercharged pre-workouts, Jekyll and Hyde. The company is updating their image for 2015, with a number of new products and a revamped look. Vexxum is their first new product announcement this year, and this fat burner makes it clear that the company is not straying very far from the formula that won them their good name and fans.
- One capsule, once a day, easy to use.
- Makes use of exciting new ingredients
- Super potent formula
Pro Supps Vexxum Ingredients & Dosage
Vexxum is a powerhouse of stimulants, nootropics and fat fighting ingredients, all packed into a single capsule, 603mg proprietary formula.
The extended release triple caffeine hit – Caffeine anhydrous, caffeine citrate, and Infinergy dicaffeine malate – has become a Pro Supps signature. Aside from this, most of the ingredients are unique, distinguishing Vexxum from DNPX, the thermogenic fat burner Pro Supps launched only months prior.
The formula contains a number of botanical extracts, including thermogenic stimulants Cocoabuterol from cocoa seed, and theacrine, a caffeine-like alkaloid from tea which is predicted to hit big this year. These ingredients are joined by fat burning Lotus seed extract, another ingredient people are starting to take notice of.
Vexxum is stimulant heavy, and Hordenine HCl and Octopamine HCl promise boundless energy and suppression of appetite. Citicoline and sulbutiamine have nootropic activity, helping to maintain mental acuity and push through the brain fog that can descend during a cut.
The US formulation of Vexxum contains yohimbine and Rauvoscine vomitoria, which is a potent botanical source of alpha yohimbine. Due to the prohibition of yohimbine in Australia Vexxum will have to be reformulated to remove these ingredients prior to local release.
Pro Supps Vexxum Pros & Effectiveness
One of the most impressive things about this product is the fact that Pro Supps has really stayed ahead of the curve and given themselves an advantage by selecting ingredients with a lot of potential. Infinergy slow release caffeine is very underrated, and has the potential to deliver clean energy for hours, without the peak and trough that a lot of stimulants deliver. Theacrine has been described as a gentle, feel good energy booster and has a lot of buzz around it, as does fat burning Lotus Seed extract, which also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Pro Supps is a brand that was started by a professional bodybuilder, IFBB champion Art Atwood, and is now helmed by TJ Humphreys, who is also a bodybuilder and fitness model. These two professionals have years of experience and know exactly the type of supplement a bodybuilder wants, which has been proven by the success of the range. Vexxum doesn't mess around – this is a serious, professional strength product that you can feel working, and one which does the job.
It's no secret that some of the stronger fat burners taste horrible. It's very difficult to mask potent ingredients, and a lot of people are turned off by the taste of the drink. On top of this, mixing up messy doses multiple times a day, is a pain, enough to turn a lot of people off. Vexxum's one pill a day dosage is about as convenient as you can get, and with all the ingredients packed inside a capsule, you don't have to taste them.
Pro Supps Vexxum Cons
It is a shame that Pro Supps has gone with a proprietary formula and chosen not to list individual ingredients. Apart from our support for transparency in labelling, we suspect that some of the ingredients in the formulation are underdosed. For example, research looking at nootropic effects has seen Sulbutiamine administered at a dose of 12.5mg/kg bodyweight. This means an 80kg man would receive a 1000mg dose. Obviously, given this single ingredient is sharing 600mg of space with ten other ingredients, it is going to be present at a much lower dose in Vexxum.
Pro Supps Vexxum Taste & Mixability
Vexxum is a capsule, which means no mixing and no tasting the ingredients.
Pro Supps Vexxum Verdict
With innovative ingredients, a massive kick, and a simple, once a day formula, Vexxum is perfect for people who want something strong and convenient. Even without Yohimbine and Rauvolfia, this is a very strong, very impressive product.
