There is a saying that goes, “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it”. Mutant has definitely adopted this strategy in their Madness pre-workout but they have shaken things up a little bit. Let’s have a closer look below.

By sticking to tried-and-tested ingredients, Mutant ensures that every single serving provides a powerful dose of energy, focus, and endurance. However, their flavouring is where the revolution lies. Mutant has managed to flavour Madness in such a way that it is sweet and tasty without being too heavy on your stomach, which some other great tasting pre-workouts are.

Mutant Madness uses creatine, arginine, citrulline, beta-alanine, and polyphenols as its dominant sources of enhanced focus and energy. One of the great things about Madness is that it doesn’t just rely on stimulants to keep you going, but include an array of vasodilators to keep nutrients flowing into muscle tissue. This means that not only does it increase performance, but it will increase your growth potential as well because more nutrients are sent to working tissue to feed them as they are put under stress.

Performance Intensity Matrix

The Performance Intensity Matrix makes up over 60% of the 7500mg total serving and comprises citrulline and arginine, beta-alanine, taurine, and malic acid. The combination of the citrulline and arginine HCL blend results in the synergistic performance of both compounds. The 1500mg blend increases vasodilation, forcing more blood into working muscle tissue, thus providing more oxygen and other nutrients as well.

The 1250mg beta-alanine, sourced from CarnoSyn®, helps to buffer against lactic acid build-up, allowing you to train longer and harder. 1000mg of taurine has been added to enhance cognitive focus as well, along with increasing metabolic energy. As a double serving, Madness gives vein-busting vasodilation and a crazy amount of energy, but with enough compounds to allow you to focus that energy toward your training.

5-Caffeine + Polyphenol/EGCG Matrix

Contrary to the name, there are not five different types of caffeine in Madness, simply five unique sources. The sources have been selected thanks to their effectiveness and reaction with other compounds, and the varying sources will interact with each other to enhance the positive effects and negate the negative effects of each source. The bulk of the 500mg total comes from Coffee Arabica Extract, which is exactly the same caffeine as you get from your cup of coffee, just in a much higher concentration.

Along with Arabica, there is also Green Tea Extract (which acts as a source of polyphenols as well), White Tea Leaf Extract, Black Tea Leaf Extract, and Green Coffee Bean Extract. Polyphenols and EGCG are important here because they further enhance concentration but also assist with reducing risk factors for type-2 diabetes, cancer, and other oxidative stress and inflammation, which help with recovery.

I loved using Mutant Madness because I never had any problems with it, it tasted great, and it did everything it promised. There were no adverse side-effects such as headaches, bloating, and disappointment, which I was worried about when I saw the label. However, Madness brought the madness within me to the weights, and the taste was unbelievable. Mutant Madness retails for R629.00 for 30 servings and comes in five incredible flavours, namely: Pineapple Passion, Roadside Lemonade, Fruit Punch, Peach Mango, and Blue Raspberry.
