Dangers of pre-workout supplements like Jack3d, NoXplode, etc?
I keep hearing people say "you need to cycle off that stuff because it causes renal failure/liver damage/destroys your kidneys, etc. I have looked high and low for any evidence of these claims and have not been able to find anything to support these claims. Does anyone have any FACTUAL information they can share? I would hate to think I'm harming myself by taking a dose each day before my daily workouts/runs. Thank you

the "lighter" stimulants like caffeine don't have to be cycled, but it can be a good idea to take time off.
Other stuff like 1,3 dimethylamylamine (stimulant in jacked) should be cycled to some extent i believe.
Just drink enough water and if you do not have any preexisiting medical issues your liver should be fine.Crispy Bacon

Stim PWO's should be cycled more for reset of tolerance rather than harm to your body. Those touting renal or liver failure should have some information backing it up. And if they fail to provide any indication of harm caused by PWO's through scientific evidence, you have your answer
There is always harm in abuse of a product, but proper use combined with good nutrition and such will cause little to no damage.
