The Natural Flavone / Sterone Complex is supposed to support muscle growth. This complex has no effect on the dieter. The Anti-Catabolic Amino Complex prevents muscles from breaking down during exercise and recovery. The amino acids in the complex are commonly found in protein shakes. The Anabolic Adaptogen Complex is another list of ingredients to promote muscle gains.
The Insulin Potentiating Complex helps control blood sugar levels. This complex could help the dieter feel less hunger between meals. Fenugreek, banaba, Cinnulin and alpha lipoic acid are all associated with blood glucose control.
M Factor Complex contains ginger root (used to ease stomach discomfort) and grapefruit extract. Bioperine is a pepper extract that helps the other ingredients absorb more quickly.
The Energy Complex is probably the most important for the average dieter. There are 500 mg of caffeine-based stimulation, but we have no idea how many milligrams of caffeine included in the supplement. Animal M-Stak is an extreme supplement, so we figure it is going to be more than 200 mg per serving. Too much caffeine leads to negative side effects like jitters, nausea, increased blood pressure and increased heart rate. Exercise also increases heart rate, so the bodybuilder using Animal M-Stak should not be sensitive to caffeine.
Animal M-Stak sells for $60 per container of 21 packs. After taking the 21 packs, the user takes a week off before starting the next round of Animal M-Stak.

- Contains too much caffeine.
- Most ingredients are included for bodybuilders not dieters.
Animal M-Stak is not for the faint of heart. The stimulant ingredients are far too strong for most dieters and maybe some bodybuilders. Anyone sensitive to caffeine should not use this product.
