Hemavo2 MAX Upgraded (2016)! Get Your Guns Ready!

iForce Nutrition Hemavo2 Max

The King of Pumps is back! iForce Nutrition has reformulated Hemavo2 Max to include a whopping dose of HydroMax and Nitrates.

Update: This post has been updated to reflect the very latest for Hemavo2 Max that no longer has creatine nitrate in it.

After a brief hiatus, the King of Pumps makes its glorious return to the land of stim-free pre workouts.

What do you mean “return”?

Well, yes, Hemavo2 Max has been out for over a year now, but due to some patent issues regarding some of the ingredients in the previous formulation, it couldn’t get carried by some of the bigger distributors.

Now, after months of teasing the revamped formula, iForce has re-launched HEMAVO2 MAX pump intensifier.

It’ll be released any day now, so you can compare prices below or sign up for price drop alerts to wait for a deal:

Note to users regarding the new formula: You’ll need to check the labels to see which version of Hemavo2 Max you are purchasing. Remember the newest version includes Potassium Nitrate, NOT creatine nitrate.

HEMAVO2 MAX Ingredients

Hemavo2 Max isn’t just about “the pump” it’s also packing a serious hit of focus and concentration thanks to the inclusion of several nootropics. Although the label is proprietary, iForce has been gracious enough to disclose a few of the dosages here. Just because you can’t get stims doesn’t mean you can’t have focus!

Hang on boys and girls, things are about to get really, really interesting!

  • Strength & Power Matrix (4g)

    • HydroMax Glycerol (3g)

      iForce Hemavo2 Max Ingredients

      Hemavo2 Max contains a potent combination of known pumps aids plus nootropics to give monster pumps and intense focus.

      To bring on the water-based pumps to your muscle cells, iForce has included HydroMax, a patented form of glycerol that has 65% glycerol content[1], as opposed to ~25% in glycerol monostearate (GMS) from the original HEMAVOL.

      HydroMax has become the top choice for glycerol in pre workouts, as it offers superior mixability compared to GMS. No longer will you have those little gobs of goo floating on the top and sides of your shaker cup.

      In terms of effects, HydroMax is well-known for its ability to drive water into muscle cells. More water in the muscle cells leads to increased cell volumization and vascularity resulting in one serious pump for your muscles.

      As a bonus to the pumps, you’ll also experience a noticeable increase in endurance, as glycerol aids in maintaining your hydration levels.[2,3]

      This is an extremely high dose – the highest we’ve seen.

    • Potassium Nitrate (1g)

      Potassium Nitrate (KNO3) has replaced Creatine Nitrate in the new formula for Hemavo2 Max. Why get rid of creatine nitrate? Two reasons:

      First, creatine nitrate, and all amino-bound nitrates, are held under a very restrictive patent and only certain companies can use it in there products (iForce is not one of those).

      Second, and more importantly, creatine nitrate contains only about 32% nitrate by weight, while potassium nitrate is 57% by weight. This provides a HUGE nitric oxide boost leading to greater vasodilation and some serious pumps![4,5].

      There’s more though, nitrates also help reduce blood pressure and protect against endothelial dysfunctions thanks to the increased N.O. levels in the body.[6,7]

      Last, but not least, nitrates are also performance enhancers! Consuming nitrates pre workout lowers the body’s oxygen cost reduction[8] and increases in energy efficiency.[9] Basically, this means that your body is more efficient as it costs less oxygen to perform the same amount of work that you would typically “spend” during high-intensity exercise.

  • Mind & Muscle Amplification (1g)

    • Choline Bitartrate

      iForce Nutrition Hemavo2 Max Pumps

      3g of HydroMax and 1g of Potassium Nitrate all add up to some serious “skin-tearing” pumps for your workouts!

      Choline supplements are the go-to choice when looking to improve focus, cognition, and memory. Choline helps you to feel more “locked in” during your workouts, as well as helping establish a strong “mind-muscle” connection while lifting.[10]

      We don’t know the dosage here, but we’d have to venture a guess that it’s somewhere in the ~500mg range.

    • Amentoflavone 20%

      A rarely included ingredient is the active ingredient of the Chinese plant Selaginella tamariscina, amentoflavone. Amento, as it’s sometimes referred to, inhibits phosphodiesterase(PDE) and prevents the metabolism of cAMP and cGMP in the body.[11]

      PDE5 inhibitors (like Viagra) are well known for enhancing blood flow throughout the body, resulting in even greater vasodilation and further enhanced pumps and performance during training.

      Amentoflavone also enhances muscle contractions by increasing the amount of calcium shuttled into muscle cells, making it an outstanding strength booster in your workouts.[12]

      But it doesn’t end at the pumps. Amentoflavone also improves alertness, mood, and fat-burning.[13,14,15] If you haven’t tried this ingredient yet, you need too, it definitely adds a “little something extra” to your workouts.

      Although the exact dose of amentoflavone isn’t disclosed, Vaughn has relayed to us that amentoflavone is fully dosed like other top products on the market.

    • Sceletium Tortuosum Extract

      iForce Mike Dorn Veins

      1 scoop of Hemavo2 Max is all you need and you’ll be on your way to some serious vein-age all over from head to toe!

      Sceletium Tortuosum, a.k.a. Zembrin, is a powerful herb has long been used for in traditional medicine as a stress and anxiety-reducing compound, that also improves mood and increases energy. In the body, Zembrin as a selective PDE-4 inhibitor as well as a 5-HT reuptake inhibitor that makes it particularly effective for treating anxiety disorders and depression.[15]

      But, Zembrin also can enhance the executive function and cognitive flexibility of the brain as well![16] Not only will you notice a marked mental mood boost while using Hemavo2 Max, you’ll also be functioning at a much higher level mentally!

Overall, HEMAVOL was the reigning king for quite a while, and this is yet another stim-free pump pre workout in a crowded field. We like that it has actual muscle-builders in it, and a ridiculous amount of focus to go along with a very strong set of pump ingredients.

We were surprised when the first version of this product didn’t have potassium nitrate as its original nitrate choice – that has long been iForce’s tour de force. Now things feel “back in place” with this reformulation, and the pumps should be better than ever.

Vaughn knows

Based off early feedback testing from Vaughn, this newest formulation of Hemavo2 “hits really hard!” Now, whether that means the pumps are truly skin-tearing or the focus and mind-muscle connection are other-worldly is yet to be known.

Just know this, Vaughn has been in this game a LONG time, and when he says a product delivers, you can take it to the bank!

Available Flavors

iForce Finish Line Rainbow Sherbet

Rainbow Sherbet is our favorite flavor of iForce’s post workout formula Finish Line. We have high hopes it’ll taste equally delicious in Hemavo2 Max.

iForce knows what’s at stake here with Hemavo2 Max. The original Hemavol is possibly the best-tasting supplement ever, and they can’t let their fans down.

In the end, performance outweighs taste, but it sure would be amazing if the “king of pumps” was also the “king of flavors”

So far, we’ve confirmed that Hemavo2 Max will come in: Juicy Watermelon, Candy Green Apple, and Rainbow Sherbet. Soon after its release, Lemon Drop will also be added to the line up, per iForce.


Yes, there was a small blip in time when Hemavo2 Max wasn’t really all that available, but that’s going to change in short order. The OG King of Pumps is back and better than ever and it’s ready to take your muscles to a whole new level of painfully sweet pumps.

Combining high doses of potent pump boosters with the cognitive enhancements of nootropics elevates Hemavo2 Max into a rare class of stim-free pre workouts that make them truly a “can’t miss” experiences.
