Gakic Review - Does This Pre-Workout Supplement Really Work? Are side effects and too many pills deal breakers?
Why are people talking about Gakic? Well, we at DietSpotlight did one of our in-depth reviews, examining the ingredients, side effects, clinical research and customer-service quality. We also sorted through hundreds of user comments and remarks from all over the web. At this point, we summarized and compacted all of the data we collected to give you the facts and details you need.
What is Gakic?
To start with, Gakic is an energy booster and workout supplement. The ingredients include glycine, l-arginine, alpha-ketoisocaproic acid calcium and caffeine anhydrous. You need to take eight caplets 30-45 minutes prior to your workouts. This fitness formula is mainly marketed at men. It is available online and in some health supplement shops.
We are unsure when Gakic was originally released, but this supplement is made by MuscleTech. This brand offers numerous other fitness products as well. There are some newer versions of this formula available online. Also, there are some helpful user comments posted on the web for this product, but read on…
Side Effects – “Concerning?”
One concern we have is with Gakic side effects. “Some users have reported unwanted adverse reactions such as jitters, headaches, sleeplessness, anxiety, nausea and rapid heartbeat,” says our Research Editor.
One user said, “This stuff is loaded with caffeine. Try 300 milligrams per serving. It makes me shaky and gives me a headache. Not for me.”
Then again, a different customer commented, “Definitely amps up my energy. Have not seen the gains yet, but I will keep using it.”
Another posted, “Not bad. Probably won’t buy it again though.”
Too Many Pills – “Yikes”
Another issue is the large servings. You have to take eight pills per dose. One customer stated, “8 caplets per serving is drastic. Don’t like taking this stuff. Why so many pills?”
On the other hand, a different person said, “Don’t really like that there is only 16 servings per bottle. But, I do think Gakic improves my workouts.”
“Make sure you drink plenty of water with this one. It will definitely make you pee a lot. Then again, it will also give you a boost,” posted another.
Our extensive research has shown if there is some particular part of a workout supplement or testosterone booster that is especially troublesome (side effects, too many pills, unpleasant taste) the probability of lasting results is rather low. Therefore if Gakic does in fact cause unwanted adverse reactions in a lot of people, this could be a serious problem.
The Science – “Solid?”
We were able to find some studies that pertain to Gakic. However, we are not convinced this formula will work as well as claimed. It does however contain a lot of caffeine, which is a stimulant. Therefore it should help boost energy levels and improve alertness to some degree. That is, if you can get past the side effects.
The Bottom Line – Does Gakic Work?
So, should you spend your hard-earned money on Gakic caplets? Well, first off, we like that this fitness supplement is easy to use/take anywhere. It’s also nice to see that you can easily buy this product online. However, we have some doubts about this formula since some users have complained of unpleasant adverse effects. Furthermore, it’s clear that some people do not want to take eight pills per serving.
If you really want to boost physical performance, build lean muscle mass and improve energy levels, we recommend you choose a product that is easy to take, does not cause any unwanted side effects and gives you plenty of bang for your buck.
Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Pronabolin. This formula offers nine key ingredients, which are clinically shown to help increase natural testosterone levels, boost workout performance and improve overall muscle strength. We have not discovered any user complaints online, and customer comments around the web indicate people are seeing real results.
The makers of Pronabolin are so excited about their product they’re offering every customer a 120-day money-back guarantee and multiple-bottle discounts.

What You Should KnowGakic, a bodybuilding supplement by MuscleTech, claims to boost energy and strength from the first dose. Bodybuilders can order the supplement from third-party retailers. There is a list of retailers selling Gakic on the official website. Testimonials and product description are available for the visitor to learn more about Gakic. A complete list of ingredients gives the visitor a look inside the supplement and how it achieves strength and energy claims.
List of IngredientsGakic Pro Series Blend: Glycine, L-Arginine, Alpha-Ketoisocaproic Acid Calcium and Caffeine Anhydrous.
Product FeaturesThe main ingredient in Gakic is caffeine. With every 8 capsule serving, the user consumes 300 mg of caffeine. The average over the counter supplement energy supplement, like Vivarin, contains 200 mg of caffeine per serving. This is more than enough caffeine to keep the user awake for many hours. Consuming 300 mg of caffeine per serving is likely to cause negative side effects, including shakes, nervousness, nausea and vomiting, in some cases. Dieters and bodybuilders who are sensitive to caffeine should not take this supplement. It will cause a significant increase in heart rate and blood pressure that could lead to hospitalization. Taking Gakic for a prolonged period could cause addiction to caffeine. Caffeine addiction causes the body to need large amounts of caffeine to prevent withdrawal. Withdrawal from caffeine addiction can cause headaches and fatigue. Glycine is an amino acid commonly found in protein. When a bodybuilder takes a protein shake before a workout, they are consuming Glycine. Additional Glycine may not increase strength or workout performance. L-Arginine is another amino acid that has antioxidant properties. It helps fight off free radical damage common during intense workouts. The body makes L-Arginine. Supplementation is typically only needed during times of injury and burn recovery. Gakic sells for $57 per bottle from GNC. If a consumer has a Gold Card from GNC, the price will be lower.
