    No real energy from Hemavol


    Getting away from stims I switched to Hemavol capsules. Bottle says take ten of them which I do about an hour before lifting. The workout feels very weak and sleepy compared to with the pre's I was using that had stims in them. my question is should I up the dose or is there something else to stack it with that is stim free that will ignite workouts again?

    Thanks in advance!

    Since HemaVol is non-stim, upping the dose won't change much. It is intended to increase pumps, endurance, and performance.


    If you're dragging that hard, sounds like you're very stim tolerant. Stick with it until things get better.

    U want the effect of stimulants without any type of stimulant ingredient? o.0

    This product will not increase your energy. You can either workout without caffeine/stimulants and have no energy... or u can use them and kill it in the gym.

    Well it can convert carbs into glucose in the body which leads to energy production and decreases lethargy. I usually add it when I go on a stim break

    well, if hes taking 10 tabs of hemavol, he's already getting a pretty hefty dose of b-12 anyways. as with all things, not everyone reacts the same...he may not be someone who doesnt get the "energy boost" from b-12

    There is Vitamin B12 (as Methylcobalamin)2.5 mg = 41,665. Daily vaule in hemavol. Won't give stim like energy such as maximize or any other stim based pre workout

    i dont really find a b-12 kick to be anything like regular stims. hard for me to describe, but its more of a "mental buzz" haha

    exactly its a FAT dose of b12....i have found that you receive better absorption from the Bvitamins from swishing the hemavol or any other formula with B vitamins in it for 30seconds per mouthful to allow absorption through the gums and smaller tissues, I forgot what enzyme it is but absorption for typical b-vitamins is null once it hits stomach acid

    I almost think hemavol is great for use on alternating between stim and a non stim cycle. I dose 10 grams bcaas with hemavol and get such clean energy it is ridicccculous.

    Broke down and took a half scoop of hemo rage with the 10 caps of Hemavol this morning...i was up to a scoop and a half of hemo rage before Hemavol and barely powering through workouts. needless to say, today was the craziest lift to date... Hemavol kills it. I have got to get 100% non stim though. Is the non stim NO explod any good to stack with Hemavol?

    Ultima is the ultimate focus non stim product available IMHO. With that said no non stim will fully replicate the feeling of a stim product. Even something like Ultima or Hemavol get better over time and you might be best to just try and grind it out without stims or slowly lower stim intake if you can't go without it right away.
