We are back again with the always growing ENGN range from Evlution Nutrition. This time they are bringing us ENGN ZERO. Promising the same energy, focus and & amplified pumps as their previous EVL ENGN pre workout but this time containing ZERO ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS, ZERO ARTIFICIAL FLAVORS and ZERO ARTIFICIAL COLORS. Sounds similar to the C4 ZERO promise and a growing trend.
We don’t have full disclosure with the label or quantities of all it has a long list of ingredients, though we hate ‘secret’ blends, the list on ENGN ZERO certainly looks promising. We are looking at 30 servings per tub at a recommended serving of 1 scoop (10.4g). Apart from the ZERO artificial flavors, colors and sweeteners we are looking at a very similar label to their previous EVL ENGN pre workout so let’s go ahead and break it down.
BETA-ALANINE (1,600mg) Beta-alanine is a non-essential amino acid. Unlike most amino acids, it is not used by the body to synthesize proteins. It works together with histidine to produce carnosine. Which is stored in your skeletal muscles to reduces lactic acid accumulation in your muscles during exercise. This helps to improved performance. 3.2g of Beta Alanine is the recommended dosage for full effect.
CREATINE COMPLEX (2,000mg)
Creatine works primarily by increasing ATP availability within the body’s muscle cells. Creatine is also osmolytic, meaning it can draw more water into the cell. This is the cause of the relatively sudden increase in muscle size. Clinical dose of Creatine Monohydrate is usually 5g per day
(The combination of the Creatine Monohydrate and the Magnesium Creatine Chelate gives you a total of 2 grams of creatine. 2 grams is a bit low, as in this dosage it doesn’t necessarily increase creatine levels in your body, but rather helps maintain creatine stores.)
Mind-to-Muscle Matrix Proprietary Blend (2,213mg)
Betaine Anhydrous, L-Tyrosine, Agmatine Sulfate (AgmaPureTM), Caffeine Anhydrous Infinergy TM, (DiCaffeine Malate), Alpha Glycerophosphatidylcholine, Choline Bitartrate, PikatropinTM (picamilon), Huperzine A) – Cool list of ingredients here, If you for a second assume they are all properly dosed than this could be a kick ass pre. But based on the total number here, its very unlikely per scoop.
ENGN ZERO is currently only expected to be coming in one flavor that we know of, Cherry Limeade, unlike the original ENGN pre workout which has seven flavors out to choose from.
There isn’t anything new brought to the table here in regards to ingredients except the obvious ZERO artificial flavors, colors, and sweeteners. Apart from that another point worth mentioning is that from the dosages of some of the key elements in ENGN ZERO it is quite clear that this is a two scooper.
Coming in at $29.99 for 30 servings you would think that is ok. But as this is actually a 2 scooper you are getting an actual 15 servings. Based on that, we would recommend that you wait for a price that will drop your cost per tub to the $15 range and that would be potentially worth it. You can always sign up to the deal alerts newsletter on Fitness Deal News and we will let you know when a hot deal is around.
I guess the first thing to ask yourself, is do you care about the ‘ZERO’NESS’ of this product. If you don’t then move on to a better pre-workout. If you’re looking for a all natural solid pre-workout that doesn’t depend on extreme stimulation but has ZERO artificial flavours, colors and sweeteners, then ENGN ZERO is one of the small amount of options out there and if you hunt it down at a $1 per serving range – you should give it a shot.
