LEGION Pulse

I thought I was through with reviewing workout supplements until I came upon LEGION Pulse. This is mainly because at this point more than half of what you find online is most likely a scam or simply ineffective, but this website caught my attention simply because it is so different from the rest. Usually, these types of websites provide little to no information, not to mention even less citation if you even get a list of ingredients that is. In this case though, you are actually overwhelmed with information. They not only provide a full supplement facts sheet but also detailed information on each ingredient and numerous citations.

Just a quick scan over the website could easily lure you to order simply because it looks nothing like the rest. Of course, this is far from enough for me as I know companies like these always find a new way to gain our trust only to let us down. So, of course, I have decided to dissect their website and their product to see if it can really deliver what they claim and if the company is just out to get your money rather than really help.

What is LEGION Pulse?

This is a supplement specifically formulated to help improve your performance in the gym. They never directly state the results in a clear list form as all the rest but rather explain them. They claim that their product is effective because not only are all of the ingredients clinically backed with research but the dosages mirror the dosages in the researches which have shown results.

More or less the benefits that they claim, in short, are:

  • Boost energy
  • Increase blood flow
  • Reduce fatigue
  • Improve endurance of muscles
  • Sharpen mental focus

All great benefits we can enjoy if it really is as effective as they claim. The product contains a variety of natural molecules which are not only backed by science but also by numbers. Each of the ingredients is carefully selected because they are proven to be effective and the dosages are the clinically effective dosages from the clinical studies. This is the one thing that they repeat throughout the website. Surprisingly though, they also back it. They back it with a total of 63 references which are not only offered in a list form but after each claim you can click on the little numbers next to it and you will be taken to the clinical research which backs it. This is the first time I have seen such a thing, and such confidence. Usually companies like these even hide the ingredients as most are either not well researched or have been proven to be dangerous.

What is in LEGION Pulse

Without further ado, I think we should skip over the rest and go straight for the most important information: the ingredients. The rest is nothing more than marketing and basically discussing how great their product is and how it is backed by science and not like the rest.

  • Pre-workout stimulant
  • Boosts muscle endurance and strength
  • Effective dosages in clinical studies 3-6 mg per kg – average male weight is 180 kg which sets 350 mg dosage per serving right in the middle of effective range
  • Amino acid used in combination with caffeine for cognitive benefits
  • Reduces physical and mental stress
  • Increases nitric oxide production thus boosting blood flow
  • Improves mood, mental task performance, focus, memory, and alertness
  • Effective dosages in clinical studies 100-250 mg per serving
  • My research shows that there is still insufficient scientific evidence to prove the benefits
  • Amino acid Citrulline bound with malic acid
  • Alternative to L-Arginine because it absorbs better and has higher plasma arginine level results in clinical studies
  • Improves muscle endurance
  • Relieves muscle soreness
  • Improves aerobic performance
  • Effective dosages in clinical studies 4-10 grams per day
  • My research shows that there is still insufficient scientific evidence to prove the benefits
  • Amino acid ideal when combined with L-Arginine or Citrulline because it plays key role in the metabolic process urea cycle
  • Reduces fatigue in prolonged exercise
  • Promotes lipid oxidation (burns fat for energy)
  • Increases growth hormone and insulin like growth factor 1
  • Effective dosage in clinical studies 2-2.2 grams
  • My research shows that there is still insufficient scientific evidence to prove the benefits and safety
  • Natural occurring amino acids
  • Reduces exercise-induced fatigue
  • Improves anaerobic exercise capacity
  • Increases potential workload leading to more lean muscle mass
  • Analysis of 23 studies concluded effective dosage is 2.6 -6.4 grams (cited studies effective dosage is 4-10 grams)
  • Note: common side effect which you may experience is mild tingling, itching, or prickling
  • Aka trimethylglycine which is found in beets and other plants
  • Improves muscle endurance
  • Increases strength
  • Boosts growth hormone and insulin like growth factor 1
  • Effective dosage in clinical studies 1.25-2.5 grams
  • My research shows that there is still insufficient scientific evidence to prove the benefits and safety

 

 

  • Natural sweetener as regardless what most claim there are studies that suggest that artificial sweeteners are harmful
  • Sweet herb
  • Increases sensitivity to insulin
  • Helps regulate levels of blood glucose
  • Has anti-carcinogenic properties
  • Deceases oxidative stress associated with eating a lot of carbohydrates
  • Reduces blood pressure and inflammation
  • Lowers bad cholesterol
  • Protects kidneys
  • Maltodextrin – less than 2 grams per serving
  • Minimum amount used
  • Improves taste as some amino acids are bitter
  • Allows for better mixing
  • Anti-clumping

Overall, for the most part, the ingredients do have scientific research backing the claims but they are not scientifically proven and for several there is still research being done to confirm their effectiveness and safety. The website continues by claiming that there are no artificial sweeteners, flavoring, food dyes, and fillers yet it still tastes good. I have looked over the supplement facts sheet and can confirm that this is true.

Buying LEGION Pulse

The best part aside from the full list of ingredients is that it is actually reasonably priced and that there are no gimmicks when buying like a free trial or membership program. You are given 2 options:

  • $39.95 for a single bottle of 21 servings total
  • $107.95 for 3 bottles of 63 servings total

This comes with free shipping or two other options for faster shipping which you can pay extra for. You can also choose from fruit punch, grape, green apple, or watermelon flavors and can even select different flavors for each should you choose the option of 3 bottles.

Although I do like their approach and really appreciate the information and effort put forth in making the website I still think that they weren’t being 100% honest considering that some of the ingredients were not as well researched scientifically as they claim. Though there may be researches done this does not necessarily mean that the ingredients are proven to be safe and effective scientifically. With that said, each of the ingredients have proven to be very promising in these researches and considering the reasonable price of LEGION Pulse I think that it would be a good option to try out before jumping into more expensive options.

    First of all thank for the review. I have looked high and low for a supplement to help boost my workout and help me lose weight. With all of the scams out there it’s this product looks legit. What i wanted to ask was is this supplement suitable for anyone or only for professional bodybuilders? I am far from professional and looking to shape my body and lose a bit of weight.
