Nutritional Information

DynamiK Muscle Savage Roar is a 30 serving pre workout product, with each single serving providing 7.093 grams of active ingredients in a 10.5 gram scoop. Due to this small serving size, DynamiK Muscle Savage Roar can be considered a concentrated stimulant pre-workout supplement. Perhaps the most unique initial aspect of Savage Roar compared to most other professional athlete endorsed pre-workout supplements is the full disclosure of every ingredient on the nutritional panel, with no cheap bulk nutrients or fillers, and no proprietary blends.


The first two ingredients listed in Savage Roar are Beta Alanine, clinically dosed at 3.2 grams, followed by Citrulline Malate at 2.5 grams. The most effective dose of Citrulline Malate is typically 3-6 grams taken prior to training, and as such Savage Roar is slightly under dosed in this particular ingredient. However, the combination of both Beta Alanine and Citrulline Malate still acts as a potent buffer against fatigue whilst simultaneously increasing nitric oxide production for enhanced nutrient delivery and power output during workouts.

The combination of N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine and L-Carnitine L-Tartrate both dosed at 500mg per scoop is quite standard in most pre-workout products. The N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine in Savage Roar has a stimulatory effect and works to reduce the perception of stress during workouts whilst also improving cognition, promoting greater focus and attention during training. L-Carnitine L-Tartrate is a nice addition to Savage Roar helping to improve energy metabolism in the mitochondria, so users should expect to experience acute alertness as well as the added benefit of improved fat metabolism assisting in long term improved body composition.

Caffeine Anhydrous (300mg), Hordenine (50mg) and Synephrine HCL (30mg) from Bitter Orange Extract all work synergistically to support energy production, increase heart rate, improve blood flow and increase energy metabolism and fat utlisation. At these generous doses, Savage Roar will certainly provide the untamed energy that the product claims to deliver to help users power through long gruelling workouts.

The addition of 10mg of Bioperine (Black Pepper Extract) works to block enzymes in the body that would otherwise inhibit the absorption of the other ingredients in Savage Roar. Bioperine increases the bio-availability of all ingredients found in Savage Roar increasing the time these compounds are exposed to uptake receptors in the body, hence increasing their effectiveness.

The final ingredient and of most interest and controversy is the inclusion of 3mg of ArcoFuel (Acrecoline Hydrobromide). This naturally occurring alkaloid comes from the widely used Betel Nut, most commonly used in Asia in a similar manner to chewing tobacco. The synthetic form used in Savage Roar acts as a potent stimulant & psychoactive ingredient providing increased physical performance, improved mood and reduced fatigue.

Arecoline is arguably the breakthrough stimulant ingredient of 2015, and has also been used in other high stimulant pre workout supplements including Dana Linn Bailey’s Run Eveyrthing Labs Enter With Purpose (EWP). However it has also grabbed some bad media attention due to some studies reporting the associated risks of increased oral cancer from chewing betel nut, although the FDA is yet to indicate any safety issues associated with the synthetic form of Arecoline Hydrobromide.

Taste & Mixability

Dynamik Muscle Savage Roar is available in two flavours; Fruit Punch and Pina Colada. Although this leaves consumers slightly limited for choice (the addition of berry & citrus based flavours will be likely in the future), DynamiK Muscle has hit the mark with both flavours providing a pleasant taste experience. 

The smaller serving size and exclusion of creatine means Savage Roar mixes very easily with little sediment and minimal product settling.


As far as concentrated pre workout products go, the acute energy and physical stimulation from Savage Roar is exactly what is expected from this type of product. Users can expect a sharp surge within 15 minutes of consuming Savage Roar along with sustained physical stimulation that goes the distance in long duration workouts. 

Although not fully supported by research, the psychoactive properties of ArcoFuel certainly add a new dimension of cognitive enhancement to Savage Raw.
