I'm just like everyone else and have tried SP250, White Flood, etc. but are they bad for you? I know they can temporarily raise blood pressure, but other than that can they pose any potential cardio vascular risks in moderate use?
I've heard people say stimulants can weaken your heart because it makes your heart work harder than it has to...?
Can anyone shed light on this matter?

i just posted a comment about white flood and i basically said it was on the healthier side of the pre workout category for a couple reasons. 1. It has CoEnzyme Q10 in it that actually helps oxygenate your heart. They give this to people with heart issues because of the benefits it has for the heart. Since it is a proprietary blend im not sure about how much of it is actually in there. 2. The only stimulants that are in there are caffeine, theobromine (weaker than caffiene) and L-tyrosine. These are basically things that you find in things people consume every day. Now i think its safe to say that two scoops of white flood can be about 200-250 mg of caffiene...basically a dose that, yes, can raise blood pressure temporarily but think about this...1 cup of coffee is about 100 mg of caffiene and some people drink tons of coffee a day...not to mention smoke ciggaretts too...and dont exercise...THAT is bad for your heart.

Most MD's would **** a brick after reading the ingredients in the pre-workouts available today.
They are a scam anyway. Just drink some coffee or pop a few caff pills._Current Stack_

I switch back and forth between Superpump and Animal Pump, when on Animal Pump, I chuck the red Stims pill away and add a Mega B-complex pill as a replacement.
works great for me, so when I get back on Superpump, I get more of a kick.
from the Animal site, I also read that taking arginine products releases a lot of free radicals in your body, so you should take anitoxidants with it.
Animal pump has antiox in them, which is good.
