Jacob Latsch   Age: 17

"... Okay so i just bought DM, I've never used it before and want to know if it'll help me gain serious muscle mass. Im a power lifter and all my weights recently went up but now I'm stuck again. i need to put on muscle mass and build strength quick. is this the product for me?"

August 11, 2015    question
Faser Hardin   Age: 69

"... I have always been lean but over the years started getting a gut. About 3 months ago I started intense gym workouts with no supplements other than Creafit which I really like and got some pretty good results. A few weeks ago I discovered Up Your Mass and Dark Matter. Over the 3 weeks I have been taking them, I've gone from 159 to 168.7 pounds - I'm 6'1". AND my gut is slowly fading away. Needless to say I'm thrilled. At 69 I look better than I've ever looked in my life - great muscle definition. On the DM directions, it says to take it twice a day but I thought it was only a post workout supplement - so why twice a day. I also love UYM - what is your opinion of it. Thanks for any tips you can give."

Take dark matter just after your workouts.

Congrats on the progress.. really an inspiration!

Yep, exactly. Now be sure to get the right nutrition with 4-5 healthy high protein meals each day as well.

Tara   Age: 23

"... I just bought this product in hopes to gain some muscle mass.. I currently take cellucor C4 extreme for a pre-workout is it OK to take together? Also, I'm wondering [after reading] if it's going to make me gain weight instead of muscle?"


June 26, 2015
response by Norm

If this is a post-workout shake then yes, as the other is a pre-workout.

It won't make you gain fat. You gain fat but eating crap and not training hard enough. Simple.

"... Does DM replace a post workout protein shake? Or do I take DM and a protein shake?"


July 6, 2014

Take it right after training then eat a solid, high protein meal 60 minutes later. No need for a post workout protein shake with this.

February 27, 2014    question
Luis Trujillo   Age: 20

"... I just started taking Dark matter because of the amazing things i've heard about it but was wondering if i could mix some protein powder in with DM or something because it's not very high in protein at 12g? Also i know it says your not supposed to eat until an hour after you take DM but i was wondering if i could eat a light meal or protein shake 30 minutes or so after? If not why? Thanks so much!!"


March 23, 2014
response by Trevor

No, this product should be taken by itself for optimal results. The key is that it's POST-WORKOUT and the 12 grams of protein combined with the other ingredients are the perfect amount for right after training. Then, 20-30 minutes later be sure to eat a high protein meal.

December 8, 2013    question
William   Age: 59

"... I drink mhp trac extreme no as my prework out drink. Will I benefit me to use drak matter as my post work out ? Is this a good ideal since the trac stays in the body for hours after your work out ? I lift weights. Thanks"

Use it as directed.. it's not meant for anything else.

April 18, 2013    question

A few hours to pass through your digestive tract.

April 9, 2013    question
Stephmichelle   Age: 26

"... Hi, I am currently taking DM only. Is it ok to split the dose? Half pre-work out the other half post? I'm not sure if size has anything to do with this but I am 4'10 and 132lbs. Is there another supp. That you guys recommend? Looking to build LBM."


April 10, 2013
response by Nick

No, it's not ok to split the dose because this is strictly a POST-WORKOUT supplement. If you take it before you train you are not getting ANY benefit from it and actually ruining your workout potential.

To build lean muscle mass you need high daily protein, so purchase a whey protein powder as well and take that twice a day. In addition, eat 3-4 high protein meals as well.

January 27, 2013    question
DBombs21   Age: 18

"... ive used dark matter before and liked it but didn't take anything else with it. Now that im taking it again I also got isofast 50 protein to take with it. I take the dark matter after working out and iso when I got to bed.Is there anything else I should take like creatine with the protein because the dark matter isn't real high in protein or creatine?"


January 29, 2013
response by Jason

Take Dark Matter after your workouts and Isolate protein anytime during the day, before bed is ok but you should look at a Casein protein as that feeds your muscles for 6-8 hours throughout your sleep rather than 20 minutes as Isolate does.

Best ingredients to take pre workout is vitamin c, glutamine and creatine. Do the same right after your workout (add it to your dark matter shake) and during your workout drink amino acids such as through Xtend by Scivation.

December 10, 2012    question
Eric Cestero   Age: 40

"... I just got my supplement of DM and I'm very excited to start using it tomorrow, now, take 2 scoops of DM on 20oz with water right after workout and no eating or drinking supplements after an hour. On less is water. Now, I take Nano vapor for pre-workout, can I still take this? also, i take glutamine pills can I take them with DM or do I wait an hour too? "


December 14, 2012
response by Peter

Yes, as one is for before and the other is after your training. It's a good stack that you'll see some good results from.

October 21, 2012    question
Ahmed   Age: 23

"... I am using DM and it is great product, but I only use this after workout and I take (animal pak) in the morning, should i take something else like (whey protein) with it? my goal is to gain muscle"


October 24, 2012
response by Max

It's a great post-workout drink and it does already contain some protein so you don't need to use more. If you want to gain more then I would suggest a Casein Protein before you go to bed and also add in creatine and glutamine before and after training.

August 10, 2012    question
Matrin   Age: 16

"... Hi, I was wondering how long do I have to wait after I drink my dark matter shake to drink my isopure whey protein shake? Also, does it matter if i drink the dark matter shake fast or take my time to finish it?"


August 14, 2012
response by Josef

I would wait about 20 minutes as dark matter contains some protein as well.

You can also drink it as fast or slow as you like, it makes ZERO difference.

July 22, 2012    question
Howard   Age: 31

"... Do I really need to wait the suggested hour after taking Dark Matter before taking my whey? It says to wait, but thought if I did wait that long it would be outside of the 30min window. "


July 25, 2012
response by Harold

Yes you should wait. The quick window is actually 60 minutes, even thought the first 10 are the most critical. However, the ingredients and amino acids in Dark Matter are PLENTY for your needs for post-workout. I would actually have a solid meal in the 60 minutes rather than a whey shake..

July 21, 2012    question
Nick   Age: 16

"... I'm 16 and ive been working out for a few years and ive been on and off supplements not really finding the right one because i always seem to get a nauses feeling for an extended amount of time. my friends on the highschool football team recommended this to me and i was just wondering if you thought this would be a good, safe choice for a 16 year old whos had problems with past supplements?"


August 2, 2012
response by Carl

Yes, 16 is OK to use this product. Just follow the directions and you'll be FINE.

July 19, 2012    question
bduong85   Age: 26

"... i currently use dark matter and love it. i was wondering if its ok if i sip on it during my workout for about half the serving then just finish it at the end would be ok versus having to actually use an intra workout?"


July 20, 2012
response by Carl

It's not meant to be a intra-workout supplements, I would suggest to use it post workout once you are DONE training as that is what's it's made to do. For intra workout, I would highly suggest you start using one scoop of XTEND, the best bet.

July 15, 2012    question
Alyssa   Age: 24

"... I am a 24 year old female. I do crossift and im wondering wich post workout would be better dark matter or muscle tech anabolic halo? thanks"


July 15, 2012
response by Paul

I prefer the Dark Matter because the Halo has a strange burning feeling to it when you drink it. Both give good results. Be sure to keep your protein intake high all day as well.

July 3, 2012    question
Cesar   Age: 19

"... Hi, I am doing the Insanity workout which is lots of intense cardio, plyometrics and max interval circuit, i started taking dark matter to help my muscles recover fast from the workouts because i ripped my chest tissue a year ago and now its scared and im trying not to put much pressure on the chest so i dont re-tair it. my question is is their a better supplement so my muscles can recover fast or is dark matter good and i dont want to gain weight just get cut. thanks."


July 5, 2012
response by Paul

Dark matter is a good choice, I would also suggest a good whey protein isolate drink right afterwards as well. Then be sure to eat a high protein healthy meal 45 minutes later. Be sure to get your 8-10 hours of rest per night.


July 9, 2012
response by cesar

thank you greatly appreciated, and should i take the 2 scoops of dark matter it says because i feel the same weather i take 1 or 2.

Erica   Age: 32

"... Is this meant for women as well? My goal is to gain some more muscle, and get stronger but reading about all the weight gain kind of freaks me out! I have only heard good things about this product and would like to start taking it asap.. "


June 15, 2012
response by Neil

Yes, women can use this as well with great results. It's not anabolic so don't have to worry about any harsh side-effects etc. It's safe and natural and will really help with your recovery.

"... I love the product but i wanted to know that i started to break out so i wanted to know does Does dark matter cause ance?"


May 6, 2012
response by Joel

No, there is nothing in Dark Matter that will cause acne. What usually happens in cases such as this is that the individual exercise with more intensity and endurance and sweat really bad in their workouts - then they don't bother taking a shower afterwards. So if you skip a shower after your workout the sweat, clogged pores and such CAUSE ACNE.

"... i am already using DM but quick question how good is it a friend of mine recommended it but i wanna know how fast does it work i am trying to get a little bigger."


April 18, 2012
response by Nick

If you are already using it then you'll know if it works or not. These supplements help you but it's not overnight. Stick with it each workout, increase your protein and train hard.

You'll see the results you want sooner than you think.

March 15, 2012    question
Jamey   Age: 26

"... Hi, I am 26. I was 150lbs, I used Dark Matter for 2 months and I gained 10 pounds. I love it but I am looking to put on a lot more muscle and quickly. What else should I be taking to help my muscles grow?

Thanks "


March 15, 2012
response by James

Congrats on the quick gains. If you want to continue with the gains keep using dark matter but also adding some BCAA during your workouts such as BCAA, isolate protein shakes 2-3 times per day and zma at night time.


June 14, 2012
response by Kevlar

Dude 10 pounds in two months is huge. Give up on wanting to put on more faster. 5 pounds a month is more than one could ask for. Increase in CLEAN calories is the key. If your supplementation is spot on, then increase carbs by 25g per week while maintaining high protein and moderate fat.

"... I an endurance athlete, training for an Ironman and a couple marathons, will DM be a suitable recovery drink for me or is it more for body builders or lifters?"


March 15, 2012
response by Henry

It is a great post-training drink for ANY athlete. It simply helps the recovery process so you can be stronger, or perform better the next time.

February 18, 2012    question
Nick P   Age: 20

"... I've been cylcing DM for a year LOVE IT! just a question friend who is a bodybuilder told me to take it with a scoop of champion whey protien (23g) and a teaspoon of gluatmine....Should i be stacking anything else with DM? I know u need a 3-1 ratio of carbs to protein for adequete post nutrition so should i cut the other things? essentially i'm asking is taking the protien scoop and gluatime with the dark matter good or retroactive to the results it yields?"


February 20, 2012
response by Neil

Good, dark matter is one of my favs as well. Adding the protein and aminos such as the glutamine your friend suggested is a good idea to help increase the recovery and rebuilding process. This is fine for post-workout.

Withing 45-60 minutes of that, be sure to eat a solid meal with high protein, med carbs and good healthy fats.

February 18, 2012    question
William   Age: 19

"... First off I want to say how much I love this stuff, I just had a quick question. I do cardio for quite a while after I am done weight lifting. Do I take Dark Matter after I'm done running too, or should I take it right away after I finish lifting? "


February 18, 2012
response by Dean

I would actually take it after your training, let it settle so wait 10-15 minutes and then continue. You might also get benefits if you split the dose in half and take it after the weights and after your running. Experiment and see what works best.

February 17, 2012    question
Jeff   Age: 33

"... Do you need to cycle off of this? Have been using for 2 weeks and can't believe the results, just curious if I should cycle off after a month or so? "


February 18, 2012
response by Ken

Your body will adapt to the ingredients eventually, so yes, it is wise to cycle dark matter. I would suggest 3 months on with a full one month off.

September 21, 2011    question
Bradley   Age: 18

"... Just starting using this Dark Matter 3 days ago, and the recover aspect seems nice so far; haven't used it long enough to tell muscle gains. But my only problem is it makes me pee like crazy, is there any reason for this? does anyone else have this problem, and does it mean my body rejects it?"


September 21, 2011
response by Chris

Peeing is just your body getting rid of waste, if you are peeing more frequently are you drinking more often? Perhaps the extra glass mixed with this supplement makes the difference. From my experience with this product, it's not a sign that your body is rejecting it - if that was the case you would be throwing it up - before your body uses it up.

Martin   Age: 32

"... Just had it for the first time, taste great and I got it on sale for 32.99. I added more than 20 ounces of water and I went down like a gatorade. Not sure if that is improper. I do feel like I just got a shot of energy but that might be the natural result of hitting the gym. I'll update in a couple of days. "


September 15, 2011
response by Phil

You can use as much or as little water as you need or enjoy, makes no difference really. Even though drinking more water throughout the day is the ideal method. Thanks for posting and keep us posted with your results, dark matter is an awesome supplement.

"... I am a true hardgainer, to where the slightest gains for me are a success. After one tub of Dark Matter mixed in with my usual list of supplements (superpump max, kre-alkalyn, protein, animal pm) along with adding waxy maize in my pre-workout. I have gained about 2 maybe 3 pounds. It's not much, but for me to gain quality weight, I'm pleased. I appear quite a bit fuller though, It looks as though I gained 6-7Lbs. Recovery is great with this, I down another protein shake about 45 min after I take dark matter, and my strength gains have slowly progressed as well. As for the taste? the consistency is like 10w 30 motor oil but overall blue raspberry is like a fruit smoothie. And if you complain about the taste then you must not care enough about the results. As a wrap up, I will buy it again."

Thanks for the feedback, your are correct Dark Matter is excellent. If you are having troubles sleeping then cut back your dosage or take it earlier, therefore train earlier in the day.

"... My roommates are big into lifting and I didn't really start until I came to college and it was on and off at best. I've started taking Dark Matter post workout (With Jack3d pre workout) and have seen enormous gains in weight through the first two weeks with no soreness the next day. I've easily increased my bench rep weight by 30 and continue to go up each workout with Dark Matter, which is impressive because it is hard to build muscle on my body type (6'4", 180 lbs). GREAT product and tastes great too! Not sure what everyone is complaining about as far as taste, but I love it. Consistency isn't bad and I can't wait to drink it after workouts. Can't recommend it enough. Oh, and you definitely sh*t neon green. Not sure what that's all about lol but the product is awesome."

response by Striker

Yes, we all do - that is the point of Dark Matter. It's a post-workout supplement.

It's one of the stronger recovery products out there, and you will start to notice the results in the second week.

You can use it for any post-physical activity to be honest.

"... How many grams of creatine is in each serving of this?? Im currently on 100% whey and I was told that adding no more than 5g of creatine is good to do. Is this pretty much just a creatine product??"

"... okay. for all the people seeking answers to the question of why it has such little protien i have ur answer. the formula of this product spikes ur bodys natural production of protein which occurs in and around the hour after your workout. so simply put it is a enhancer of natural proteins and amino acids which build muscle, and help them recover from strain. Hope this helps someone in thier decision. and i'd recomend the pre workout supplement of dark rage, they work hand in hand."

"... okay i'm thinkin about using this but i first had some questions. After reading the label it doesn't seem like there is enough protein in this for a post-workout supplement. Can/Should I also get some protein post-workout? and if so should it be taken before Dark Matter or an hour after as it says. also i know others have asked but i haven't seen an answer on here, should it be cycled off? Thanks "

"... its "ok". I put it to the test by not working out for 2 weeks (took a break)knowing i would be sore if i worked out after. I got back into schedule and used dark matter from the very first workout......and i was still sore. After 2-3 more workouts, again took dark matter afterwards....still sore. I dont think it helps from 'soreness recovery'. Im sure most of you claiming dont get sore after a workout using it because you have already been lifting for a while and dont get sore anyways.

BUT....if you want radioactive neon green turds.....this is the product for YOU!

All im saying is this product is "OK". Seems more like a "Super-Creatine" product, but nothing more. I do seem to have filled out a bit after just one week, but that probably the overload of creatine cause i also take creatine in the mornings too.

The taste IS GREAT. Like a watery/gelatin gatorade...very yummy."

"... Some of you who talk of "the pump" it gives you and how it kicks in after the first set either have dark matter confused with dark rage, or are just taking this stuff wrong. It is to be taken immediately following your work out, not before! This is a great product, that taste extremely well in my opinion, especially considering the ingredients that are in it. Some of you that complain of taste and thickness sound like big P*ssies, man up!...The funny part is the taste is not bad and it isnt that thick! Use 20 ounces! "

"... This stuff is the shiz recovery drink available right now. I work overnight working HEAVY loads for 8 hours at a super fast pace...working out was extremely hard for me because I was always dead tired, and sore as hell...

I took this after a workout, and I kid you not I felt as if I could go in for round to 1 hour later. [of course I was still sore, just not feeling it as much].

get the bluerasberry flavor. tastes great! the fruit punch flavor however is very lacking. It's a bit thick, but still taste great cold

If anyone is having trouble hitting the gym more than once a week because of muscle soreness or fatigue I recommend this product to you. It will help you recover at a rapid rate, have you feeling fresh, and also slap on some size."

"... just started using dark matter. i wondered why the strange name until the first time i mixed it. it basically turns into 40 weight motor oil. kind of a dark plasma. it does eliminate soreness and it gives me kind of a caffeine like buzz. almost like my arms and chest are shaking, but they arent. that feeling goes away after about 30 minutes. i havent seen the gains in strength yet, but ive only been using it about 2 weeks. i'll know more in time."

It has a strange feeling to it. its not a caffiene buzz but its more focus than anything else at first. then once it kicks on the first set the animal is let loose i guess. its crazy. the taist is the worst i have ever had. almost puked the first time. Choke it down but you will not regret it."

It does have a weird, slimy texture but it is definetly worth it in my opinion. Does anyone know if you have to cycle on and off this due to creatine being in it?"

"... I have been using Dark Matter for two months and have seen a noticeable change from using my standard post workout shake of dextrose and Optimum Whey. I have leaned out a lot but I have also gained strength. I'm happy with this product and will continue using it. Don't let the smell of the dry powder deter you from using, it still tastes okay in both flavours. Make sure you clean your shaker after mixing as it becomes quite gross to clean after a short time. The texture of the shake is quite thick as well, it keeps me feeling full for quite a while. Overall it's a good product, even from MHP"

"... great post workout. been taking it for about 2 months and have seen solid gains. mostly in strength. Recovery have been great, dark matter shaves at least a day off the soreness, sometimes I am not even sore the next day and i train heavy. Love the taste, got used to the thickness, and the green s#*t. I combine it with parabolic 12 hour a couple times a day and have had very steady gains. Should wait 45min or an hour to do other post workout meals or products though to let this stuff get absorbed, and yes it def give you a insulin spike you will feel, may want to do more research if you have diabetes or it runs in your family."

I mix it and wait for it to get thick, I 2 full scoops and wait about 2 mins. I think the thickness makes it more of a dessert for me and it tastes great. I have noticed a lot less soreness after hard workouts, which has led me to be able to owrk out harder with my faster recovery times. I holmost didnt believe it, but in the past 3 months went from 220lbs, to my current 230lbs today. This has been the only change in my diet. I am stoked! More dark matter for me fo shizzle!"
