Vaxxen Labs - Fulcrum
Vaxxen Labs: Newest Kid on the Block
Vaxxen Labs is a relative newcomer to the supplement industry, but it’s going to make a big impact. Established in early 2017 and based in Warren, Ohio, Vaxxen Labs is a supplement manufacturer that specializes in prohormones (which are legally available to purchase online and around the world), post-cycle therapy supplements, liver support supplements, and similar products. However, it doesn’t just carry those hardcore supplements; it also sells a wicked effective pre-workout powder called Fulcrum (which we’ll be reviewing) and a whey protein blend. If you haven’t heard of Vaxxen Labs yet, give it time. The company makes scientifically backed claims online about its products—e.g., Vaxxen Labs’ Norexx supplement is “six times more anabolic than testosterone but with fewer side effects.” That’s a big statement, and we believe Vaxxen can back it up. We just need to give this young company more time to build its reputation in the industry, and to prove itself. We'll start by reviewing their pre-workout, Fulcrum.
Fulcrum under the Microscope
Fulcrum is a seriously intense pre-workout supplement that comes in “Bombsicle” flavour. The best way to describe it would be akin to those three-flavour “rocket pops” you used to get as a kid—almost like a fruit punch, but not really. There are 30 scoops (11.5 grams per scoop) in each container, so you have at least one month’s supply of Fulcrum per tub. One scoop contains 350 milligrams of caffeine anhydrous, which is definitely on the high end for pre-workouts, along with 1000 percent of your daily value of vitamin B6 and 8335 percent of your DV of vitamin B12. In addition to these potent doses and ingredients, you get the added benefit of 4 grams of L-citrulline malate and 2.5 grams of beta-alanine. Other ingredients include alpha-GPC, theobromine, and Huperzia serrata. Fulcrum should significantly boost your energy while also sharpening your cognitive function and focus.
How and When to Take Fulcrum
According to the directions, as a dietary supplement, mix 1 scoop of Fulcrum in 8 to 10 ounces of water, 15 to 20 minutes before your workout. I rarely say this about pre-workouts, but Vaxxen Labs’ Fulcrum doesn’t mess around; if you’re not used to 350 milligrams at one time, and you haven’t taken nootropics before, then please start out with half a scoop to assess your tolerance. Fulcrum is potent, and you don’t want to miss out on a workout because you didn’t follow instructions and thought you could handle more than you could.
Final Thoughts on Vaxxen Labs’ Fulcrum
Overall, we give this up-and-coming company two thumbs up, and Fulcrum gets a solid 5-star rating! Taste, mixability, ingredient profile, potency, and even the name of the flavour—“Bombsicle”—are all on point! Vaxxen Labs only has one pre-workout product available (so far), and for good reason: You can’t improve on perfection. It nailed that category with Fulcrum.
On the Vaxxen website, Fulcrum can be purchased on its own for $39.99, or as part of the “Before and After” stack, featuring Vaxxen’s insanely good whey protein blend product WheyXX (which comes in Birthday Cake or Blueberry Muffin flavour). Alternatively, for the slightly more hardcore Vaxxen fans, you can get the “Recomp” stack, which includes WheyXX and Cinerate, Vaxxen Labs’ token fat burner, which is designed to reduce your appetite and increase energy while giving you an improved ability to focus your thoughts.
Vaxxen Labs offers a $10 flat rate shipping fee on all worldwide deliveries (over $100), and free shipping on all orders within the US (over $50). Vaxxen also offers military and student discounts, which is generous, and has a pretty cool collection of T-shirts/apparel on VaxxenLabs.com, so if you like Vaxxen as much as we do, you can rep it everywhere you go.
