Improve Your Mental Activity

Nowadays, bodybuilders can hardly do without certain pills, supplements, and gadgets that intend to simplify their activity and way of life. One of the supplements available on the market today is AJ. It has its own official website which is not informative at all, though. It only offers the possibility to buy the product. Information is not enough, there is nothing mentioned about the ingredients and adverse effects of the supplement.

AJ is manufactured by an American non-reputable company. It is claimed to have a natural formula that promises to make your workouts more effective, to sharpen your focus, and improve your mental activity. These are really important issues for an athlete or a bodybuilder. But is the supplement really effective or is it another scam? What is special about it? Let's try to find out all this.

As it was already mentioned, there is no information on AJ ingredients. It's only said that AJ has to be taken daily. But I was able to find out the secret components through third party sources. They are as follows: Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate, Taurine, Beta Alanine and Caffeine (look Testro-X). Let's focus on each of them.

Taurine is possibly effective for the treatment of congestive heart failure (CHF) and liver disease (hepatitis) but this ingredient proves to be ineffective for improving of exercise performance, according to the studies. As the research showed taking 1-1.66 grams of taurine does not improve exercise performance. There is no dosage information of any AJ components, though. Taurine cannot strengthen you in the course of training or sprint performance. It is also ineffective for improving mental performance or treating of muscle soreness.

Alpha-Ketoglutarate is possibly ineffective for enhancing athletic performance. According to a small study, taking alpha-ketoglutarate daily for five weeks can improve this index only when using the substance in higher doses. Still, there is need for more evidence to rate the effectiveness of this ingredient.

Beta-alanine is a non-essential amino acid. It means that it is produced by the human body. Nowadays it is used for improving athletic performance and building lean muscle mass. However, its effectiveness is too modest to reach significant results. The work of this substance greatly depends on the intensity of physical exercises. Beta-alanine supplements tend to decrease muscle fatigue in adults. In combination with creatine monohydrate, alpha-ketoisocaproate, arginine, and leucine (NO-Shotgun) Beta-alanine might decrease fat. Still, the results of using this ingredient are very disputable and require further studies.

The official website of AJ doesn't provide any data on possible side effects of the supplement. There is also no proof that the product is natural and effective. The website is simply filled with advertising information. This makes me conclude that AJ isn't able to potentially solve the problem of weakness and lack of energy during workouts. But what is even worse is that it may carry potential dangers for your health. The manufacturer doesn't mention the dosage of each ingredient in the product.

If the manufacturer of AJ doesn't provide any information on its supplement, how can one consume it without knowing what's inside? It can be dangerous or you may have a negative reaction. You can try experimenting on your body, but I wouldn't. Nowadays, AJ, is often compared to some other supplements, including Optimal Stack, No2 Maximus, and 1285 Muscle. But these products are not perfect at all and they have their own side effects.

There are numerous reviews on the supplement online most of which seem to be too sketchy. Some users state that they have used the supplement for several weeks and didn't see any improvements with their workouts and muscles. According to some reviews, the company suggested them a free trial, while paying only for shipping. But after ordering the free trial, they got the full month's worth. These customers were enrolled in receiving automatic shipments each month, so they had to pay for these months.

But let's have a look at possible side effects of AJ besing on its ingredients. One of them is Taurine. It is said to be possible safe when used in appropriate amounts for up to one year. There is information about brain damage in a man who was taking about 14 grams of taurine in combination with anabolic steroids and insulin. Too much taurine can worsen the condition of bipolar disorder. Alpha-ketoglutarate and Beta-alanine are safe for most adults but it should be avoided by pregnant and breast-feeding women. Higher doses of beta-alanine can cause some side effects including flushing and tingling.

Caffeine, another component of AJ, has proved to be addictive. When withdrawing from this substance you may suffer from the following symptoms: headache, anxiety, fatigue, depressed mood, irritability and difficulty concentrating. At high levels caffeine may increase magnesium and calcium loss in urine. Moreover, it is harmful for patients with cardiovascular disease and cancer.

"Unfortunately I did not like AJ. I found it completely ineffective. I would not purchase them again"

"AJ made me sick! after about a week of taking them i started feeling quite ill and it just got worse i ended up stop taking them"

"AJ doesn't affect me at all. It's like taking nothing. I've used lots of supplements and this may be the least effective thing I've ever tried. Total waste of money"

AJ can be ordered on the official website. You may be offered a free trial, but it has proved to be not completely free. Your credit card will be automatically billed about $88 a month. It can be quite difficult to cancel your automatic subscription. The website is filled with reviews but I don't consider them to be legit. Reviews from real users can be found on other websites. The product is also available on Walmart, Amazon, and GNC.

As a specialist, I don't trust AJ manufacturers and I don't think that it can take care of your health due to the number of disadvantages. First of all, it is too expensive for a product of this type. Secondly, it has a lot of potential side effects. The manufacturer doesn't provide information neither on the supplement's ingredients and on their dosage, nor on their side effects. The Internet is filled with negative reviews about the product. There is no money-back guarantee. I cannot recommend AJ to usage. Don't waste your money on this faulty product.
