A couple of days ago, I took a detailed look at the no xplode ingredients in a detailed comparison between NO Xplode 2.0 and NO Explode 3.0 (Push). Then in the last review, I did the same for the details of the PWO from BPI called 1MR Vortex. This time, I will be covering the details of;
Redline White Heat from VPX
Redline is a preworkout supplement from the company VPX. Redline actually has a long history and was introduced to the market for the first time, years ago. Since then, the product has been revamped several times, and the latest version is called Redline White Heat. Before Redline White Heat, VPX have released Redline Xtreme, Redline Power Rush, Redline Princess, Redline Ultra Hardcore and now the latest is Redline White Heat.
There is quite the buzz on various muscles forums for this preworkout supplement, and there is a good reason which is highlighted further down on this page. In this review I will cover the details of this supplement, and share my thoughts on it as well.
VPX claims that Redline White Heat is the ultimate pre-workout amplifier and study aid supplement. It should give the user laser-like focus and cognitive enhancement benefits. So yeah, let’s take a closer look at the supplement facts, and see if Redline White Heat from VPX can live up to these claims.
First of all, one serving of Redline White Heat will give the user a total of 10 calories from 2 grams of carbohydrates. The supplement facts that make Redline White Heat what it is, comes in a 2,860 mg. prop. Blend with a mix of the following:
Proprietary Blend 2,860 mg
- Hydroxypropyl Distarch Phosphate (Food Starch-Modified)
- Caffeine Anhydrous
- 4-amino-2-methylpentane citrate
- Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin
- Citicoline sodium (CDP – choline Sodium)
- Evodia (Evodiae fructus) (fruit) [std. to evodiamine]
- Yohimbe (Coryanthe yohimbe) (bark) [std. to yohimbine HCl]
Being a prop. Blend, you naturally won’t know how much of what you get when you take a serving of this preworkout supplement. A bunch of the ingredients listed in the prop. Blend are well known and often used in other PWO formulas:
Caffeine, Citicoline, Evodia and yohimbe have been used in lots of other preworkout supplements. They work well and have all been fairly well researched.
Theacrine has been used in other supplements before, but I have never tested it. It does seem to show in more and more supplements thought, and should structurally be very similar to caffeine; based on peoples experience with it, so should the effect from it.
Hydroxypropyl Distarch Phosphate is a modified resistant starch (considered the third type of dietary fiber) and used as a food additive.
4-amino-2-methylpentane citrate is what makes Redline White Heat popular, powerful and potentially dangerous. 4-amino-2-methylpentane citrate is also known as 1,3-DimethylButylamine citrate, AMP Citrate, DMBA and 4-methyl-2-pentanamine. It’s structure is very similar to the very popular, and now banned, DMAA also known as Methylhexanamine and 1,3-dimethylamylamine. I have seen some people refer to DMBA as DMAA Light, claiming that it works like DMAA, just not as potent. The short version is that this is somewhat similar to amphetamine, and based on people’s experience with it, so is the effect. This is still not well researched, but after DS released a PWO called Frenzy with 4-methyl-2-pentanamine on the supplement fact list (as a natural substance found in Pouchung Tea), it started quite the stir online; people discussing it on forums, other supplement vendors creating PWO’s with DMBA, and sites posting warnings about this new supplement and the structural similarities to DMAA.
Flavors, jar sizes and Price per Serving
Redline White Heat comes in three different flavors: Fruit punch, Strawberry, and Watermelon. As far as I can tell, this preworkout supplement only comes in one jar size, which will give you a total of 40 servings (a total of 160 grams, roughly). If you purchase this directly from VPX’s homepage, it will cost you a total of $60, and top that up with shipping costs. Based on this, the price per serving comes out around $1.5.
VPX Redline White Heat is not listed on SupplementReviews. It is listed on bodybuilding.com but it seems to be a revamped version, as the supplement fact list on bodybuilding.com doesn’t show the DMBA substance, but shows an additional three kinds of Yohimbe; so as far as I can tell, the Redline White Heat listed in this review, isn’t listed on either of the two sites.
I haven’t personally tested this PWO, so I can only judge by the supplement facts. I don’t appreciate that Redline White Heat mainly comes as one big prop. blend. DMBA forming part of the prop. blend is another downside making the PWO potentially dangerous. The flipside to this is that it is likely to work and give you a huge kick of energy. The price is fairly standard compared to similar PWO’s (with and without DMBA), so overall I would say; it’s likely to work as described, but it’s definitely not for everyone!
