What does all this mean?
It's hard to say....
In full transparency, I have now taken Black Ant powder for almost a month.
Also, it tastes like dirt.
I masked the taste and used it in conjunction with Pur Pre Workout Drink.
Pur Pre Workout has a stronger cherry-pineapple taste and Branch Chain Amino Acids, Beet Root powder.
Furthermore, it is sugar-free and Sucralose free making it healthy, Keto and Paleo-friendly.
Q) Does it make me feel better?
A) Maybe. I certainly don’t feel worse.
Q) Has it made me stronger?
A) Hard to tell.
Q) Has it helped me with zinc?
A) Once again, hard to tell. Since I eat grass-fed beef at least once a week and use Pur-Zealander Grass Fed Protein (which is loaded with Zinc)
Now I wouldn't start with just Black Ant Powder.
It is the 41st most important thing to do, with the top three being:
- Omega 3 Molecularly Distilled Cold Processed Fish Oil
- Australian Macadamia Nut Oil Cold Pressed
- SG High Octane MCT Oil 500ML Bottle
Is all Blank Ant Powder the same?
All Black Ant Powder is not the same. Polyrhachis Vicina Black Ant becomes the # 1 Highest Bio-Available source of Zinc in the natural kingdom when concentrated in an extract form in a ratio of 10:1. There are a few other Black Ant powders on the market that have lesser concentrations, some 20:1 and even 30:1.
How do you take Black Ant Powder?
It can be taken in water and stirred as a quick mixture, but I feel that it tastes like dirt. Instead, I have found the most success mixing it with a Pre-Workout Drink that is sweetened with Stevia like Pur Pre Workout by Strength Genesis. I also have mixes black ant powder with electrolyte powder or multi-vitamin powder all sweetened with Stevia.
Are there any side effects of Black Ant Powder?
There are very few reported side effects of pure Black Ant Powder. It is possible that someone could have an intolerance or allergic reaction to Black Ant Powder. In research, the most common side effects of Black Ant Powder were potentially skin irritation and/or stimulant-like effects. However, it appears that these conditions might be from supplement manufacturers adding additional ingredients and chemicals to Black Ant Powder and marketing them as sports supplements than the Black Ant Powder itself.
