3 DIFFERENT JACK3D FORMULAE & ITS INGREDIENTS
The Original Formula of Jack3D beta alanine, caffeine and creatine. The main ingredient is Dimethylamylamine(DMAA). Studies had been done on this compound because of its brochial-dilator effects that improved breathing. DMAA is a neurological stimulant that serves to quickly boost your energy level, aiding to increase your performance. It is quite similar to caffeine and other similar stimulants but it works differently in the brain. DMAA helps to burn excess calories and stimulates muscular and overall physical performance.
