"... What a load of rubbish, grim taste, no effects at all, certainly no energy rush or extra strength...1 scoop as directed and nothing....what a waste of $50"

"... Is it OK to take twice a day?"


August 12, 2011
response by Donald

Dark Rage is meant to be taken before your workout. So unless you are weight training twice a day then I would say no. Even if you are exercising twice in one day I would also not take it close to bedtime, within 6-8 hours as the stimulants will keep you up all night.

"... can you take dark rage and n.o bomb together"


August 30, 2011
response by Richard

I would NOT stack these two together as they do similar things. They are both excellent pre-workout products and the best suggestion I would give you would be to run each cycle on their own and compare results properly, that way you can see which works best and continue on with the best choice.

"... You could not get a better name for this stuff. I took it for the first time yesterday at Six. At Six Thirty I was hitting the weights and tell you what the weights I was lifting before were too light. This stuff gives your body one enormous boost. Only down side was, I was restless all night and when I went to bed (why, I don't know) I finally got to sleep after Three am then up to go to work at Six. Hopefully my body will get use to it and Ill try half a scoop for a while. Also, when I took it I never had anything in my stomach and it was sort of upset at the end of my workout but as soon as I had my dinner my stomach was fine. Would I recommend Dark Rage, definitely Yes."

"... I have tried almost everything on the market and all I have to say is OMG! I decided to try this out so I bought a whole tub of Dark Rage and try it for myself. The first day on this I was like a mad man in the gym. I went into maxing out everything I touched in the gym. I couldn't stop working out. I was so pumped up my body started to literally turn into stone that I was unable to move and bend my arms. The only thing that stopped me from working out was that my left joint in my elbow started to give out and I started to be in some pain in that arm. Strong stuff alright and that was half a scoop!

After my work out around 11pm I went home and took a shower but I was so pumped I had problems trying to wash up LOL. Anyways it started to get scary as my heart started racing out of control. I could see my heart beating through my chest in the mirror. I really thought I was going to have a heart attack so I went out side my back yard in my underwear and laid down to get some fresh air and cool down because I was on fire. Soon after it passed and I felt alittle more calm but any excessive movement would cause my heart race again. So I just laid in bed still to get some sleep but guess what? Not going to happen! I ended up staying awake the whole night and the whole next day. I finally ended up sleeping but lemme tell you when I woke up I was hella sore like never befor that it took me three days to recover before I could hit the gym again. I Freakin Love This Stuff.

After acouple of days on this stuff my body got use to the DR and I am sleeping normal now and I allways am looking forward to hitting the weights."

Tastes like ass (Cola) but I'm going to start it up next week and post every week. It is by far the best pre workout drink i have taken. GREAT PRODUCT JUST UPSETS STOMACH "

"... I was extremely disgusted by the taste of cola fizz. It is hands down the worst tasting supplement I have tried. The smell and after taste are horrible. I returned it to GNC for NO xplode. I DO NOT suggest this product to anyone with taste buds! "

"... I have been using this product for 2 weeks. I will agree, one full scoop will scare you. But, the workout I had was nothing like I ever felt, it worked for me. On day two, I took a half scoop and still had a great workout without any side affects or funny feelings. I am sticking with the half scoop and recommend this product to all serious lifters!!!"

"... Just took this stuff for the first time and took a full scoop, BIG MISTAKE! Didn't really feel any different at the gym and I was there for an hour and a half. I left the gym and as soon as I walked in the door of
my house I started to feel weird, got really bad jittery feeling, and felt like i had some sort of heart problem going on, it seemed to go away
when i sat down, but as soon as i would get up to do anything it would come back. This lasted for a few hours afterwards. Did not like it at all, kinda makes you a little nervous like your having a heart attack or something, If I do it again I will definitley take a smaller scoop, half
or less."

"... I took the dark rage and dark matter for the first time today, and I have to disagree with the most of you, the taste of the dark rage (fruit punch) tasted just fine to me. In my opinion Nitro Tech Hardcore is harder to stomach than the Dark Rage!!! I got an amazing pump from this stuff even more than 2 scoops of NO-XPLODE. Last wk I did 50 pull-ups with in 6 sets and today I did 53 in 4 sets, so I can definetly tell a increase in strenght. I didn't experience any of the headaches, or the shakes, but I did experience just a faint nausa but nothing at all to worry about. I must say the crash is pretty bad but I workout after work and when I get done its close to bedtime so it dosent bother me. The Dark Matter is harder to stomach than the dark rage, and a lot thicker, but like I said this was my first day so I will have a better opinion on the longterm benefits later. I would Highly recommend this product."

"... Hi Guys, I am currently using this product and getting incredible results. Most noticeable is the increase in pumps and focus during the workouts.. I am not sure if there is some stimulant in there or what but it works fine and doesn't leave me with a crash. Rating it a 5, based on previous experience with noxplode and superpump 250 which were inferior quality, for me."

"... Hi everyone.. great site!

I have just recently switched over the MHP for pre and post workout drinks, after having tried the muscletech, bsn and gaspari versions. MHP is hands down, for me personally, the BEST of the bunch. One of the few that I can really feel it not just the first few weeks but 9 weeks later, where I currently stand. Anyways, I don't usually post online but I had to make my mark.. dark rage is da bomb! lol"

"... This stuff is insane. Took a full scoop the first day and I had mad energy. I couldn't push heavier weight the first day, but reps definitely increase and rest periods cut in half. I was so energized I couldn't wait to lift again. Give you energy all day so i suggest working out in the morning. I did have slight nausea but went away after an hour and did notice cold sweats. Like one other user said I thought the gym had the AC on full blast. Taste like puke, but just chug it don't be a wuss. I cut down to half a scoop and my workouts are still intense. This stuff really works!"

"... Took Rage last night for the first time. Have to say it wasn't any better then any other NO product on the market. In fact, I think CytoNox is better, which is what I have been using for the past 3 months. Rage gets you going quickly, like within 15 minutes you can feel the rush, but about an hour into my workout I felt drained. In addition, about 1/2 into my work out I felt sick to my stomach but that soon faded. I did follow up with stacking this with Dark Matter, which by the way, absolutely true concerning it looking like 30w oil. Only the first day so I am willing to give this stuff a shot for a month and see how it goes. I do like the fact that it Does have some protien in it which Cytonox does not."

I had a huge disappointment with Gaspari's Plasmajet (I thought it had inteligent ingredients and would work, but it didn't). This looks promising but I don't know if it will do. I tried No Xplode (bulls**t), NanoVapor (same), Plasmajet (same), NO Plasmacore (same)and NO Shotgun v3 (lot of energy and noticeable pump, but not that crazy). DO YOU GUYS THINK DARK RAGE WILL WORK FOR ME??"

"... I agree with many of the others. This stuff is potent. You really do get an energy rush and some pretty decent pumps Really makes you sweat when working out with a little bit of nausea & gas as well as the side effects. Minor side effects aside this is a great pre-workout product. I would also recommend try taking Juggernaut by Infinite Labs as a preworkout supplement if you don't like Dark Rage."

Nausea, gas, jitters up to 5 hours later. Good workout but kept my eye on the trash can.It was like taking Lipo6 with on top of everything. 1/2 scoop and no coffee from now on."

"... This stuff is potent. I bought a tub and started on it on a Thursday last week. I was getting ready for my bike ride and then a run on the treadmill and a littttle upper body at the gym while I was there.

So, I read everything, took a scoop, waited for that "instant result" and didn't really feel anything. So I grabbed my bike and headed down the steps. I hopped on and started my ride (20 mi short loop). About 1 mile in it hit me like a truck. I felt energy everywhere. My heart began to speed up or at least I became more aware of my heartbeat, my breathing didn't change much, my mind started racing (almost dizzying, I could not concentrate and just wanted it to stop), and of course.. my muscles felt ripped and ready for the craziest triathlon in history.

I started feeling extremely mad at everything. I was raging out of my mind and I wanted to kill someone by ripping their head right off their neck. It was very scary and very real.. I was out of control.

I began pushing myself to the limit on the bike. This wasn't just a bike ride anymore; I was ready to die pedaling this thing at 40mph straight up a hill for all 20 mi. It got more and more intense until it plateaued later at the gym.

I got to the gym, stretched, began my run, and finished it in record time. I felt unstoppable. I started my upper body lifting (which was just supposed to be some light stuff) and once again began pushing myself to the limit. I just couldn't stop. I was so mad and felt like I was in a trance. I was maxing out left and right on my chest workouts and doing crunches between everything until I came close to puking.

It was a great workout... BUT.. I felt out of place, out of my mind, insane, and scared for my heart health all at the same time.

As some others have experienced the cold chills, I did as well. They would come in right on the last few reps and made me break a little bit of a cold sweat.

So after the gym I went home and showered. I still had racing thoughts and it was almost dizzying at this point. I wanted it to stop so badly that I was pulling at my hair and yelling at myself (good thing I live alone.) At this point, it was about 11PM and I had finished my shower. I was ready for bed and went to take care of a few things on the computer.

I was still in that trance. I was sweating profusely as I sat in my chair and ended up getting stuck to it. I never need deodorant after my shower before bed.. but I was starting to really stink so I grabbed some.

Long story short, I was up until 5AM with racing thoughts and felt mentally shaky like a caffeine OD but I was not physically shaking. I had no other problems other than fluorescent yellow pee.. haha.

It all just sorta scared me the first time. I turned it back to half a scoop after I skipped a day and it wasn't as bad but I still had racing thoughts. So again I turned the dose back to 1/3 scoop and we were looking good today.. up until the evening.

I was driving home.. and suddenly I started raging out of my mind. There wasn't really even anyone on the road but I picked someone to try to really mess with and get angry. I don't know why.. I'm not this kind of person usually.. But anyways, I got this guy all worked up by passing him and then brake checking him, and then getting behind him and high beaming him to death. And then he retaliated with the same and it was on. I stopped, blocked him in, got out of the car, and was ready to kill this guy (literally, that was what was on my mind. I wanted to kill.) And he ran off (thank god) and later I realized I could have gotten in some serious s*** for what I did. I'm still a little crazy feeling.. but it's not as bad. This stuff is just madness and I hope these side effects wear off. I don't want to end up in jail, but I do like this stuff."

"... Follow up review (from 4/18/09) on Dark Rage... Instead of mixing with regular water, mix with 12 oz. of vitamin water (i used formula 50). You still get a nasty after taste but easier to get down, so immediately chase it with a couple sips of remaining vitamin water. After the first time of using dark rage i did notice "cold chills" when reaching higher reps (12 and beyond), which i didnt acknowledge until reading some reviews. I thought that maybe the gym was a little cooler that day. The first time I used this product I took a full scoop of Dark Rage at 8 p.m. and didnt go to sleep until around 4 a.m. (had to wake up at 5 a.m.!!) This stuff is extremely potent and works well. Getting past the taste and some minor side effects are well worth it for the results. I train in MMA and even after my weight training day, the next day going into MMA i still have a huge abundance of energy to expell! Very addicting! Decided to stick it out and not go back to MHP TRAC. -JB"

I have never had a better pump at the gym then this. went down to half scoop and seems to be fine. I have increased weights all around. I have also used mri war and black powder. This stuff is definately worth the money because u only take half a scoop it lasts almost 2 months. does taste garbage though and is kind of thick. I am currently stacking it with Arimatest and muscletech protein. "

"... Ok, un-biased review... Started taking MHP TRAC (fruit punch)about 2 years ago, extreme pumps especially on bi's and chest, but hated the taste. Went to NANA Vapor by muscletech, best taste of all nitric oxides but less than satisfactory results. Then I tryed BSN's N.O. explode, tolerable taste, and satisfactory results. Decided to go back to MHP TRAC and found DARK RAGE on the shelf. I decided to try the DARK RAGE (fruit punch), almost yakked while choking down 14 oz. of this!! Results were very fantastic! Went through 21 sets (7 different exercises) in an hour with very little rest, huge pumps; same results as the MHP TRAC. Overall, going back to the TRAC because of a slightly better taste (still disgusting, but tolerable) and with the same exact phenomenal results! Thanks MHP, but please step up the taste!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! -JB"

I tried and tried, but could not get to sleep... 2 oclock rolled around, felt awake... 3 oclock; my eyes felt more comfortable open than closed, as if that was their natural state. I ended up just sitting up in my bed until 4 am, which was about the last time I checked my watch before I finally got to sleep. I woke up again at 6 because I needed to go to the bathroom, and I was wide awake again and could not fall back asleep, so I just stayed awake until my classes the next morning (I'm in college).

"... I had a pretty rough experience with this product....

It's my first preworkout product (before this I've only taken protein and creatine), and frankly I was scared of its power. I only took a half a scoop about 40 minutes before working out. At the gym, even my gym partner noticed that I could do more reps than ever before--great energy and pumps. But... I can't really explain it, something wasn't feeling right. It felt as if I wasn't breathing enough or something; whenever I finished a set I felt awful, the stuff definitely affects you mentally, it was a daze similar to a faint, bad high, but you gain energy and focus ONLY when you are physically lifting. But the worst part for me was after the gym. I felt incredibly nauseous and got the runs. Also, I took the stuff at 8pm, and the effects took at least ten hours to go away. Trying to complete a task with my hands while carrying things was impossible considering the amount my arms were shaking. It was very difficult for me to write an essay, and I felt like I got through it in a strenuous daze. I legitimitely felt like I had a cold for the rest of the night (nausea, headache even though I consumed two nalgenes of water, shakiness, etc.). I just remember thinking, I would give ANYTHING for this feeling to wear off already, I could deal with it for a couple hours, but it was persisting over what seemed like an endless amount of time. All this lasted until the time I got into my bed.

The first time I took Dark Rage I was so alert I was concerned this might be too much for me. Then I worked out and I could not believe the pumps I got. I have been using it for 2 weeks and now is an essential part of my workout! I shared some with my workout partner and the gym representative, now they both are going to get some! No nausea, headaches, or cold chills, but the tste is disappointing considering how good MHP's other products are. If you have any doubts about this product, try it and they most likely will be erased!"

"... I bought this after trying Dark matter. I was excited since Dark matter worked so well for me.

The Good - You will definitely notice your veins coming out more, and your strength will begin to increase after a few days of supplementing into your workouts.

The bad - At first I noticed some really bad cold chills after taking this stuff, and I did get some pretty bad headaches even with taking lots of water...I even got G2 gatorade to help me out...

The solution to the minor setbacks of the product

- when you get a headache or experience any bad side effects, kick back for a few minutes, relax, wait till it passes, and continue with your workout and you will notice your workout will pick up and get even better within the next few sets.

In terms of cold chills...after the first week on it, I never got the cold chills again, I'm assuming my body was just getting used to it maybe.

Over all I think it's a pretty good far I'd say it ranks #1 with what I've tried thus far. "

"... oMG Never doing a full scoop again.. I was doing squats and it gave me mad Diahrea and i have to find a new gym .. but all an all INsane pumps, i'd say 70% comparable to Dbol pumps (steroid). "

"... everyone on here is talking about the taste your all pussies, suck it up and drink it and train like an animal no excuses. This stuff works great and yea and makes you feel like your going to puke but if you puke then continue your training. This product is not for those pussies out there who cant handle it."

"... I deffinitely tend to agree, DO NOT start with one full scoop. Took one full scoop the first day almost puked, the second day puked it all up about half hour later within taking it. Will cut back to half a scoop. Although i did notice from being able to keep it down the first day that I experienced a great pump and intesity. Felt like i was moving through my workout like an animal, had one of the best chest workouts in a while. The taste is really not good (cola fizz) but the product works so just chug it."

"... Great stuff! I have used NaNo Vapor and NO Xplode before on a semi regular basis. This stuff is easily and dramatically more powerful. As well as increasing endurance and causing intense blood pumps, it gives me this crazy agressive mindset where I just feel mad as hell. Which is awesome in the gym, I reccomend fully."

"... The first day tasting this stuff was awful! BUT, it definately gets better from day to day. It get easier to put down. Don't give up on it due to it's taste because this product works very well. Intensity is insane, pumps are very noticeable, strength is better, and stamina is also long lasting. It's the best pre-workout product I've ever used. "

"... Dark rage is a good pre-workout drink i'd say I just finished my first bottle..I had some good results in the gym..the only problem i had with it was when I did shoulders after only a few sets I had such a pump I couldn't hardly finish my workout..btw the taste isn't as bad as people say..the old NO Shotgun was way worse.."

"... Dark rage is everything it says! I take a full scoop about 45 min to an hour before my workout. Wakes me up , strength increase is good, workout stamina good, and the pump is insane! Only problem I've had with it is trying to sleep at night. Other than that I can deal with the taste."

"... Today was my 1st time taking it and like many others I felt nauseous once it kicked in. It didn't really give me much of a pump but it got me jittery instead. I felt like I drank 10 redbulls, it was more like a burst of energy. However, I only finished 3/4 of my drink it got too disgusting to drink. I'll try to finish it tomorrow and see what happens. "

"... Nice pumps and great workout, but by far the worst tasting supplement I've had yet (fruit punch). I feel its better then a double scoop of NO explode. Slight nausea too. If you can get over the taste great product. Not sure if I can.... "

"... In my opinion, and 10+ year of experience in this game and supplement world, dark rage is by far the best preworkout product out there today, no question about it. The only other one that has come close, kinda, for me is Gaspari's version. Anyway, good flavor, no upset stomach or runs and GREAT pumps and strengh gained."

"... Not a bad product. I picked up some today and the pump was def there. I did notice that I didnt have as much energy as I have with other products. I didnt take a full scoop, about 3/4 of a scoop 45 mins before the gym which may be why. My stomach is taking a little bit of a beating though, nothing that isnt normal from anything u take. I was also able to run after my workout which I have never been able to do with any other NO product. Like I said first day so its hard to tell. "

"... Got Dark Rage a couple weeks ago but due to my gym being under construction, it was just a hassle to get into a rhythm of working out.. a couple days ago I went because it's been a while, and I took one scoop with a glass of water.. I felt nauseous after about an hr of working out, and during the drive home.. As soon as I got home, I went straight to the bathroom and puked. Just took another 1 scoop today and I hope that nausea won't be a factor again..... "

"... This was my first Pre drink, and having used Dark Matter beore, I had high expectations, but the Rage came through. I couldn't stop lifting! I guess I've been lucky (knoocks on wooden desk) that I haven't experienced the nausea, though it does make me have to use the bathroom a few hours afterwards, but its not like its unbearable... The taste is the only bad thing. I can chugg it down, but right when I breathe out, the taste hits me, but I wash it away with more water..."

"... Excellent product, VERY POWERFUL! I usually take right after work and the drive home can get pretty difficult because of the rush this gives. Workouts are great, pumps are intense, and you can really notice the increased endurance with this stuff. Taste isn't as bad as some make it, but it isn't up for any awards either. I find the best taste comes with 14 oz. of water. Give this a try for sure."

"... EXCELLENT product. I have gone through tubs and tubs of many of the top pre-workout supps out there including gaspari, musceltech, nutrex, bsn and mri.. but the most recent dark rage by mhp is by far the most effective. I am just coming to the end of the first 3 weeks and my workouts have never been better. Strength is up and size is also much improved.

The best part is the lack of side-effects. Most of the other pre-workout supps give me terrible runs (especially noxplode and superpump 250), or bad heart burn like muscletech stuff.. not with dark rage.

Overall.. the best pre-workout product I have come across.. by far."

"... Just opened my first tub of dark rage and unlike n.o. xplode and other n.o. supplements it actually gives you everything it promises. Don't get me wrong n.o. xplode did things for me but dark rage is the next step up. Noticed good pumps, and excellent endurance throughout my workout. The only downside to this product is the taste; it's awful! I got the fruit punch flavor, and the "cola fizz" flavor doesn't sound to appetizing either. Because of the taste i can only give it a 4 out of 5, but so far i'm impressed"

Anyway, really cool to finally be able to try it."

"... Hey fellas.. here is the latest I've found on DARK RAGE.. looks really promising and as soon as it's out I'll be one of the first to give it a try!

The new preworkout formula is dangerously powerful! Dark Rage introduces a totally new EPO technology and an exclusive psychotropic stimulator for the most insane muscle pumps and intense workouts ever experienced. Dark Rage utilizes a patent-pending, dual action EPO-NO technology. EPO is a powerful hormone that actually allows you to make more blood by increasing red blood cell production and blood volume. Dark Rage stimulates the production of EPO in conjunction with NO boosters. This dual action forces the large volume of blood to be pushed through the wider vasodilated veins, causing a much greater pump than conventional NO boosters. Dark Rage contains a power exclusive psychotropic co-factor, beta-methoxyphenylethylamine, which stimulate the release of adrenaline and greatly increases mental focus and euphoria, to put you in the zone."
