Blast Force Review
What You Should Know
Blast Force is a nitric oxide formula from Victory Nutrition. According to the product description, Blast Force contains the same ingredients found in Jack3d, a popular weight training supplement. If Jack3d and Blast Force have the same ingredients and sell for the same price, why would the bodybuilder choose Blast Force over Jack3d? Sometimes using the name of a more popular supplement helps sell your product; especially if your product is cheaper, but when two supplements have the same ingredients and same price there is no reason to choose the alternative unless you take that fact that Jack3d recently changed its formula into consideration.
List of Ingredients
- Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate
- Creatine Monohydrate
- Beta Alanine
- 1, 3 Dimethylamylamine
- Citric Acid
- Natural Cherry Flavor
- Vegetable Stearate
Blast Force literally contains the exact same ingredients as Jack3d down to the 4,145 mg in the proprietary blend, but Jack3d in the original form is no longer marketed by USP Labs, the manufacturer. In 2011, a 22-year-old soldier died after taking Jack3d before a workout. The parents of the soldier are taking USP Labs to court over the death. USP Labs changed the Jack3d formula, but that doesn’t stop the lawsuit or reports of death associated with one ingredient commonly used in fat burners and energy supplements – DMAA.
DMAA or 1, 3 dimethylamylamine, is a dangerous stimulant originally marketed by Eli Lilly as a drug. The ingredient, delivered as an inhaled drug, was used to relieve chest congestion. Somewhere along the line after Eli Lilly stopped marketing the drug, supplement companies picked up the extract and started adding it to fat burners and energy supplements. The FDA has sent out warning letters to supplement companies claiming there is no clear indication that DMAA is a supplement at all. Evidently companies like Victory Nutrition and USP Labs have chosen to ignore the warning.
- Blast Force will boost energy.
- Contains an unknown about of caffeine.
- Contains DMAA – associated with multiple deaths.
- Contains the same ingredients and Jack3d – the object of a current wrongful death lawsuit.
Blast Force may be just as strong as the original Jack3d but USP Labs clearly changed the formula because there is something dangerous about the original Jack3d. We suggest dieters and bodybuilders steer clear of Blast Force until the FDA rules on whether or not DMAA can be legally used in over the counter supplements. Any product or ingredient list associated with death is not worth the energy boost.
