Jacked Factory’s Nitro Surge is pretty similar to the brand’s original pre-workout, Altius, in terms of ingredients. The doses of each ingredient are much lower (around half) what you’ll find in Altius, but since the price is also much lower, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Of course, to acheive true clinical doses of the physical performance enhancing ingredients such as Citrulline, Beta-Alanine, and Betaine you’ll need two servings.
When it comes to energy and focus, the combination of Caffeine and Hordenine will get the job done for some people, but others may need to take two scoops to really feel it.
Ultimately, Jacked Factory definitely didn’t knock it out of the park with Nitro Surge, but the formula is fairly comprehensive and definitely fits into the low-end niche of the pre-workout market. You can find it on Amazon for $25 or so which is more or less fair given the ingredients and dosing.
