DMAA Out – Dendrobium In: What is Dendrobium?

With all of the big controversy over DMAA (1,3 dimethylamylamine or geranium oil) everyone is wonder what is the next big thing? In many cases, most would agree that DMAA hit home on most products shortly after the Ephedrine band was set in place when it had been placed in the most well known pre-workout formula on the market, USPlabs Jack3d.

Driven Sports had made a name for itself as the infamious Jack3d became a target of the FDA. So what was so great about Driven Sports “CRAZE” that wasn’t DMAA? The answer is simple, Dendrobium.

What is Dendrobium?

Dendrobium (Pronounced: den-DROH-bee-um) is a member of the orchid plant family and is one of the 50 fundamental herbs used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), where it has the name Shihu. The plant is native to southern Asia, and Dendrobium nobile is by far the most widely used species because of its well-known medicinal properties. Dendrobium has been used in China for over 1000 years as a tonic and strengthening medicine. It contains a variety of chemical alkaloids that are thought to be responsible for its beneficial effects.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Dendrobium is used to promote the health of the stomach, kidneys and lungs. In addition to its use as a medicine, it is also used as a powerful strengthening tonic!

Premium Nutraceuticals (PNI) Prodigy 30 Servings | Review

Premium Nutraceuticals or better know as PNI stepped up to the plate with their all new pre workout, Prodigy. After speaking with Chad and Eric Broser about this amazing new product, we had to try it out ourselves. Stating “we”, a handful of employees and a few selected routine customers we had try out this product for feedback. What we got was something we did not expect…

Here is just some of our responses to the product Prodigy:

Major M. – ” I thought it was a joke when I read the label, could they honestly have all this stuff in 1 scoop? Huh, now I used a very large variety of pre-workouts, hands down this one is my new #1! The energy is insane and the pumps are massive…nicccee.”

Rich J. – “..the taste was good, figured that’s all it had that was good was taste. Until it kicked in and I hit the gym. I feel bad for how bad I beat those weights up. I felt as if I was on a treadmill at max speed with a pump so full, I felt as if my skin was going to tear. “

Mike M. – “Like a caged animal. Set after set I would pace the gym with more energy then I knew what to do with. The flavor Watermelon was one of the best tasting pre workout powders I tasted in a while. I used a ton of different pre workouts before, I would say this quickly made it to the top on my list of needs for the gym. Oh and not to mention, I felt like the size of King Kong after my workout… ridiculously swole.”

For most, trial and error are how people get a feel on how products work with their bodies. Some are great experiences and some not so well. With this run with Prodigy, we have yet to hear much of any negative feedback. The only stand out constant feedback we got was a just minor crash(exhaustion) post exercise. (Although rest does great for the body, maybe not a bad thing to take a cat nap post workout?)

In conclusion with the feedback we had received, PNI has came through with a bang and their pre workout product as well as their entire line of supplements are on the way to the top hand full of people at a time.
