M5 Reloaded Review
What You Should Know
M5 Reloaded is a pre-workout supplement that claims to fit the lifestyle of the user by removing stimulants that keep you awake and splitting the formula into two supplements – Build and Ignite – so you can customize your plan. The ingredient lists for both formulas are listed on the official website. The canister is broken into two compartments so the user can choose to take one or both of the supplements prior to working out.

The Ignite supplement portion of M5 Reloaded does contain caffeine, so this supplement should NOT be taken at night despite the claims of the company. If you take this supplement prior to bedtime you could have trouble falling asleep or reaching deep sleep, especially if you take caffeinated supplements or drink caffeinated beverages during the day.
The Build supplement is nothing more than amino acids and creatine. According to M5 Reloaded, creatine nitrate is more water-soluble so it is more quickly and efficiently absorbed by the body, but there are no negative side effects like those associated with creatine monohydrate. The side effects associated with creatine monohydrate are the ingredient’s call sign. If the muscles don’t feel flooded with fluid, how is the bodybuilder supposed to know the creatine is working and is it really working at all?
The FAQs section explains a bit more about the supplement. The Ignite is listed as a stimulant, but the user is free to add as little or as much as they desire – up to two scoops or 300 mg of caffeine. The company also suggests stacking the formula with another stimulant once you know you can handle the stimulation from Ignite. Adding more stimulant is not a great idea.
- All ingredients for M5 Reloaded are listed online.
- The formula is broken into two supplements – stimulant and muscle builder.
- There is a stimulant in Ignite.
- Taking the Ignite portion at night may interfere with sleep.
M5 Reloaded is clearly created for the bodybuilder, not the dieter. We like the fact that the company split the formulas and separated the stimulant, but claiming the product will not interfere with sleep is a bad idea. Stacking this supplement with other stimulants from the same product line is suggested, but we do not think this is the best choice.
