Original Jack3d Formula: The Most Dangerous Pre-Workout?

Anyone who likes pre-workouts knows that Jack3d used to be banned because it was way too strong and dangerous for normies to take. Today, I’ll be looking at the original jack3d formula and reviewing the newest (FDA approved) one.

So, take a seat, buckle up, grab some of your favorite pre workout and lock in.

Why Jack3d Was Banned:

The original jack3d formula was one of the most popular high stim pre workouts back in the day. I would even go so far as to say it was the strongest pre-workout ever. 

Jack3d was so strong because it contained DMAA, which was one of the strongest stimulants that used to be legal. You can still buy it nowadays (like I may or may not have done).

DMAA, or 1,3-dimethylamylamine, was very similar to meth, but it was legal. It was as strong as hell and gave you an amazing workout. 

Many people, though, couldn’t handle it. Everywhere you looked, people were having heart attacks. So, when the FDA heard about this, they banned DMAA in 2012. They told supplement companies that if they didn’t follow the rules, they could be sued for a lot of money. 

The original version of Jack3d was taken off the market when DMAA was made illegal. It’s clear that this made a lot of bodybuilders mad. 

I personally have tried the formula with added DMAA (at a lower dose) and had one of the best workouts of my entire life. THIS IS NOT FOR EVERYONE THOUGH. Be careful if you decide to do this, because you could end up in the hospital.

The company that made Jack3d, USP Labs, came up with a new formula, which is good news. I have to say that it’s pretty good. 

Jack3d Original Formula

The original jack3d formula contained

  • Arganine alpha-ketoglutarate
  • Creatine
  • Beta alanine
  • Caffeine
  • DMAA
  • Schizandrol

Unfortunately, the exact recipe was never released (it was in a blend) so I’ve gone ahead and found dosages that would be similar.

You can actually go buy these ingredients and blend them together to make something similar to what the original jack3d formula was.

Original jack3d formula:

  • 8 g arganine alpha ketoglutarate
  • 5 g creatine
  • 8 g beta alanine
  • 405 mg of caffeine
  • 30 mg DMAA (BE CAREFUL)
  • 250 mg of schizandrol

To re create the jack3d formula, simply purchase these ingredients online and mix them together. I recommend using some sort of gatorade powder for flavoring. Again consult with a doctor (for legal reasons) before taking a banned substance. Now let’s get onto the new Jack3d formula.

Regardless of the new formula, I would still prefer the original jack3d formula just because.

Jack3d pre workout review

The new Jack3d pre-workout formula is pretty damn good. Even though it doesn’t have DMAA in it, it’s still very powerful. 

Overall, I give Jack3d a 5/5 stars. It has some very strong stimulants, herbs that help the body, and a lot of caffeine. Even though it doesn’t have as much caffeine as Bucked Up, this is probably because it has other stimulants (such as Yohimbe and Rhodiola Rosea). 

So, whether you’ve never been to the gym before or you’ve been going for years, I really think you should try this new Jack3d formula at least once. 

Jack3d Ingredients 

DMAA is not in the new Jack3d, because that would be against the law. Even so, there are still a lot of good things in it. 

The Jack3d New Ingredients:

  • Caffeine
  • Creatine Matrix
  • Nitric Oxide CP
  • Beta Alanine
  • Yohimbe Extract
  • Adaptogen Blend

Side Effects of Jack3d Formula

With the new version of Jack3d, you won’t have many side effects, if any at all. When they got rid of DMAA, the number of side effects people had went down by a lot, almost to zero. 

Still, if you take too much Jack3d or any other pre-workout, you might get some side effects. If you take too much pre-workout, you might feel anxious, lose sleep, have a fast heart rate, or get a bit jittery. 

Just start with one scoop and see how well it works. If you do well, you might want to take two, but don’t take any more. 


Overall, Jack3d is a strong pre-workout supplement that was once banned because it was just too strong. 

But it’s better than ever and back with a vengeance. It’s a great pre-workout because it has stimulants, herbs that make nitric oxide, and herbs that help the body adapt. 

If you do decide to buy Jack3d, buy it from an official seller like USP Labs. I hope the article was useful for you. Tell me in the comments if you think I forgot something, and as always, I’ll see you next time!
