Sometimes consumer reviews and clinical trials disagree. In other words, some supplements may not actually contain clinically proven ingredients, but customers still rave about their effects. Drive by Applied Nutriceuticals may be able to fit into that category.
According to the makers of Drive, their supplement is a unique product designed to enhance your overall workout by increasing energy and building muscle. They claim that their product is unique and can be considered in a class of its own.
The first thing you will notice with Drive is that it contains ingredients that are unique to the pre workout market. In fact, the makers of Drive claim that their product is more than just a pre workout supplement. They say Drive can do just about everything from boosting energy and libido to supporting a healthy metabolism
One of the main claims to fame when it comes to Drive is that it is stimulant free. However, one of the downsides to Drive is that its ingredients are all hidden behind proprietary blends, so we don’t know the exact quantity of each one. Here are the ingredients listed on the label of drive.
Cordyceps: Probably the most important ingredient in Drive, Cordyceps has been shown in studies to increase oxygen capacity and boost energy.
Dodder Seed Extract: While no official studies prove its effectiveness, Dodder Seed is said to be able to boost libido among other health benefits.
Naringenin: Only in vitro studies have been done using Naringenin, but they argue that this natural ingredient is an effective antioxidant.
Epimedium Extract: No proven benefits, but some reseach suggests that Epimedium Extract can increase energy and libido.
Forslean: This patented form of Coleus forskohlii is said to be an effective fat burner. However, official studies have actually shown the natural extract to be ineffective at reducing weight.
What Users Say
Despite some of the potential risks and downsides to the ingredients listed on the label of Drive, the users reviews for this supplement are generally positive. Most users claim to have experienced greater endurance and strength and an overall better performance.
What We Say
It is hard to determine the accuracy of user reviews because anybody could have written them. Also, we don’t know if those users were stacking Drive with other products. Still, there appears to be some potential behind this pre workout supplement.
Because Drive comes at such a low price ($35 for about 7 weeks worth) we recommend giving it a try. However, you shouldn’t expect to see any miraculous results. Drive contains some unique ingredients that may work to increase energy and build muscle but they are hidden behind small proprietary blends, and appear to have little science to back up their effects so try at your own risk.
