Alani Nu Pre-Workout Review – Rating 5 Different Flavors

Alani Nu Pre-Workout Review – Rating 5 Different Flavors
  • Post Author:

Alani Nu is a supplement company that seems to be gaining a lot of popularity recently. First of all, their branding is amazing, so this makes sense. One look at their packaging is all it takes for me to want to try this stuff. 

 

So I did try it. In fact, I tried five different flavors just to figure out what all the hype is about. If this product caught your eye like it did mine, I recommend reading through the entirety of this Alani Nu pre-workout review.

Alani Nu Ingredients and Macros

Ingredients (per scoop):

  • 6 Grams L-Citrulline Malate

  • 1.6 Grams Beta-Alanine

  • 500mg L-Tyrosine

  • 200mg Caffeine

  • 200mg L-Theanine 

 

Macros (per scoop):

  • <5 calories 

  • 0 Carbs

  • 0 Fat

  • 0 Sugars

  • ~1 gram protein in the form of amino acids. 

 

As you can see, this is a fairly basic pre-workout in terms of ingredients. All of their flavors are completely vegan and keto-friendly.

Arctic White

Taste: 4 out of 5 

Mixability: 4.5 out of 5 

Effectiveness: 4.5 out of 5 

 

I think this flavor tastes great despite not being as popular as others. It has a citrus-like flavor and kind of resembles the white, zero-sugar Monster energy drink. 

 

The effectiveness and mixability are rated the same for every flavor but it’s a fairly solid product. This is not one of those insane pre-workouts where you will be shaking and extremely jittery. 200mg of caffeine and 1.6g of beta-alanine will definitely get you ready to attack your workout. 

 

Although I personally had no issues with the texture and mixability of this product, several other customers have had issues. Sometimes the powder will be stuck together upon arrival, and this creates a chalky texture.

Carnival Candy Grape

Taste: 4.5 out of 5 

Mixability: 4.5 out of 5 

Effectiveness: 4.5 out of 5

 

This one is great if you’re a grape flavor fan. If I were to compare the taste of this pre-workout to anything else, it would probably be grape Gatorade. I originally expected this to have a cotton-candy taste because of the name, but that was not the case. 

 

Once again, I had no issues with the mixability of this product. Despite this, it’s worth noting that this flavor appears to have the most issues with clumping. This product does its job just like the other flavors, I get a nice boost in energy but it’s nothing extreme.

Hawaiian Shaved Ice

Taste: 4.5 out of 5 

Mixability: 4.5 out of 5

Effectiveness: 4.5 out of 5 

 

This flavor really lives up to its name. Some people think it tastes similar to a pina colada or like pineapples, but this flavor makes me think of a sour snow-cone. Not surprisingly, this flavor is a favorite amongst customers because it tastes great. 

 

Although I enjoyed the taste of this one, I did not rate it a perfect 5 because I feel as though it’s missing something. The powder dissolved completely in water, just like the other flavors. I took one scoop 30 minutes prior to my workout and I was energized the entire time.

Mimosa

Taste: 4 out of 5

Mixability: 4.5 out of 5 

Effectiveness: 4.5 out of 5 

 

I was initially super excited to try this one because I had never heard of a mimosa flavored pre-workout. Unfortunately, this is probably my least favorite Alani Nu pre-workout because the taste is the most basic. To me, a mimosa is hard to replicate because of the champagne taste, and this product tastes more like orange juice. 

 

If you’re a fan of citrus tasting drinks, you would like this flavor. The mixability and effectiveness were great, just like the others.

Rainbow Candy

Taste: 5 out of 5 

Mixability: 4.5 out of 5

Effectiveness: 4.5 out of 5

 

They nailed it with this one. When I taste this, I instantly think of Skittles or old school hard-candy. The flavor speaks for itself, I think it really does taste like rainbow candy. To me, this is a safe blind buy if you cannot decide on a flavor.

 

All in all, this is my favorite among the 5 different flavors I tried. Personally, I had no issues with the mixability and effectiveness of this flavor. However, it’s worth noting that other customers have commented that this powder has a tendency to clump together.

Pros and Cons

Now that I’ve provided a review of each flavor, I figured that I would provide the pros and cons of the product as a whole. 

 

Pros:

  • There are many flavors to choose from. Chances are you will find a flavor that you find appealing. 

  • The packaging is beautiful and the product is manufactured in a GMP compliant facility.

  • This is a keto-friendly and vegan pre-workout 

  • You will not be extremely jittery but you will have the energy needed to complete your workout. 

  • This product only contains the necessary ingredients, there are no fillers. 

 

Cons: 

 

  • Other customers have had issues with the powder clumping together, thus resulting in a chalky texture when mixed. 

  • Some people have reported that the number of servings per container is inaccurate. 

  • There is a relatively low dosage of beta-alanine in this pre-workout compared to others.

  • The price per 30 servings is a little bit higher than the market average.

Closing Remarks

If you’re looking for a standard middle of the line pre-workout, this is a great choice. However, if you’re looking for something extreme, then this is probably not for you. You could always take two scoops depending on your tolerance, but you will save more money by buying a product with more caffeine per scoop. 

 

Overall, this product does its job and the multiple flavor options are always a plus. The ingredients are simple and you will definitely get a nice pump if consumed 20-30 minutes prior to your workout. 

 

Hopefully, this comprehensive Alani Nu pre-workout review gives you the information you need to make a decision. All of the flavors I tried are above-average, but just remember to assess your caffeine tolerance before taking a full scoop.
