Overview of Killer Labz Noxious
I have always seen Killer Labz around, but never had a chance to check them out…until now. Killer Labz has unique product packaging for one, which at times, can be a determent to the actual product. This is not the case with Killer Labz, thankfully.
We got to test out Noxious, Killer Labz pump agent, and it was pretty solid. Four different pump enhancing ingredients makes this product effective at producing the pump you need to lead to the recovery you want. Overall, a solid pump product that does as advertised.
Testing Results and Ratings
We reviewed Killer Labz Noxious on five categories. We first start by looking at it’s ingredient profile. This portion of the review looks at the different ingredients used in the pump supplement, what their intention is and how effectively dosed are each ingredient.
We then look at effectiveness. An effective pre-workout will use high quality, proven ingredients, at clinically backed dosages. This is generally an extension of the profile section. The higher quality ingredients used at proper dosages, the more effective that product will be.
Then we move into the taste of the different flavors we’ve tried. We grade each flavor separately and average the scores for their overall taste rating. We were able to test out the following flavors: Pineapple Mango Madness.
Mixability refers to how well the powder mixes in 12oz of water. We use the shaker bottle test. This would be your typical Blender Bottle with the spiral chrome ball.
Finally, we talk about value. Value is the combination of profile, effectiveness, taste and mixability in relation to cost. Another part of value are the competitors and other versions of pump products on the market.
Noxious is the pump agent for Killer Labz. It is a simple product. It uses four ingredients to help enhance your pump.
We start with 3g of L-Citrulline. This is found in a lot of pre-workout powders. The clinical dosage is 3-5g of pure L-Citrulline…which makes this fall into the good range. L-Citrulline improves blood flow which leads to the pump. Then we get 2g of Glycerol Powder (ever heard of HydroMax?). This is one of my favorite pump ingredients. Glycerol Powder essentially turns your muscles into a sponge allowing your muscles to absorb more water. Next we get Agmatine Sulfate at 1g. This is the typical dosage. This allows you to trick your body’s pain receptors to get another rep. It also helps produce NO. L-Norvaline is used next at 125mg. I have actually seen this used higher in pre-workouts, but what it does is inhibits your body from shutting down NO production. Lastly, we get 50mg of Epimedium aka Horney Goat Weed which is used to enhance your sexual health and performance (improves blood flow).
Overall, these 5 ingredients do as advertised and provide a good pump. The ingredients are proven and at decent dosages.
What classifies a pump product as effective? Look in the damn mirror. You should look bigger. Being on Noxious, I was noticeably bigger. This is a great feeling. Even better than looking bigger, you actually recover faster with the increased blood in your muscles (this repairs tears).
This kicks in almost immediately at your first set. It is more noticeable with arms, chest or shoulders, but don’t neglect taking it on leg day.
You should get good blood flow from this as well as maintaining volume in your muscles with the Glycerol Powder.
Pineapple Mango Madness:
Pineapple is the hottest trend in the UK, and it is still good to go in the states. A decent flavor. I like pineapple/orange/mango flavored powders so this wasn’t too bad. I have only had several other pineapple flavors and this was on-par with them. Not overly fantastic, but also not poor either. You can tell it’s pineapple, if that’s the main thing you’re looking for.
The serving size is rather small at 8g so mixability shouldn’t be an issue. You would get some floating particles in the water, and some settling at the bottom, but nothing a quick shake of the blender bottle couldn’t resolve. Will it fully dissolve in water? Probably not, but drink it fast enough and it is not an issue.
For $37 you get $30 servings. This is seemingly a decent value for this category now. A lot of pump powders are going to be 20/30 servings for $40. This is dosed nicely and provides what you are looking for, a pump. Is it the best pump powder on the planet? No, but for the money it may be one of the better values out there. If you need a pump product and you’re on a budget, stretch it with Killer Labz Noxious.
