NTel Pharma AREZ Black: Embrace the Dark Side Pre Workout

NTel Pharma Arez Black

NTel Pharma is BACK with another darker version of the high powered pre workout AREZ Black.

Several months back, we covered the relaunching of NTel Pharma, led by their high energy pre workout AREZ. We’re back again today to cover the rebuilding brand and we’ve got a different version of their pre workout — a “darker” version, if you will.

AREZ Black is another high stimulant, focus-booting pre workout that’s packing a few ingredients you won’t find included in the billions of other pre’s on the market – including one ingredient you’ll love nicknamed “Longjack”!

Both of these are subtitled “God of the Gym” — the question is, what kind of God are you — the light side… or the dark side??

We’ve got a whole lot more info just below, but before we get there, take a moment to check the best deal and sign up for PricePlow alerts:

AREZ Black Ingredients

AREZ Black is a different beast from AREZ “White”. You’ll notice a little less caffeine, and there’s also no Alpha Y, to the enjoyment of many. In exchange, AREZ Black offers more pumps, performance and muscle building ingredients compared to the higher energy and focus of AREZ White.

Note: AREZ Black comes in a 40 serving tub, but lists doses for both 1 and 2 scoop servings. We’ve listed the doses contained in 1 scoop (i.e. 1 serving).

  • Anabolic Surge Blend

    • Tongkat Ali (255mg)

      Arez Black Ingredients

      If you want serious energy and focus during your workout along with some added anabolic benefits, Arez Black is for you.

      Also known as Longjack, Tongkat Ali is a popular ayurvedic plant frequently used in testosterone boosters to increase libido. Research conducted on the botanical notes that it does improve body composition, hormone regulation, and sexual health[1,2,3] — all things necessary when trying to maximize anabolism.

      We almost never see this ingredient in a pre workout supplement, and it’s not pixie-dusted here either. This may bring a whole new feeling to pre workout users, introducing them to a strong ingredient many haven’t yet taken!

  • Blacklisted Energy Complex

    • Caffeine (105mg)

      AREZ contains a very modest 105mg caffeine per scoop, which is ideal for those looking to scale their stims up or down depending on how their feeling that day and how strong their like their pre workouts, but this isn’t all the energy AREZ Black is packing, there’s several more stims to follow!

    • 2-Aminoisoheptane (75mg)

      2-Aminoisoheptane, a.k.a. DMHA, a.k.a. 2-amino-6-methylheptane, a.k.a. Kigelia Africana extract — the list of names for this new-age stim is rather exhaustive, but nevertheless, in the wake of the DMAA drama, DMHA represents the “cutting edge” of hardcore stims in pre workouts.

      DMHA is similar to DMAA in that they are both psychostimulants and  aliphatic amines[4], which increase production of dopamine and norepinephrine (noradrenaline).[5,6] This promotes heightened focus, alertness, and mood,[7] mimicking (but not matching) the effects of DMAA.

    • Ephedra Viridis (25mg)

      NTel Pharma Arez Black Benefits

      Focus, power, pumps and stamina, you get it all and more with AREZ Black.

      Also featured in their potent fat-burner Clenadrol X, Ephedra Viridis (Ephedra Navedensis) is a species of ephedra, loaded with several different stimulatory / fat burning compounds.[8,9] The catch here is that there are no ephedrine alkaloids, due to the ephedrine alkaloid ban.

      Still, this should certainly add a little something extra on top of the caffeine and DMHA hits you’ll get in Arez Black, but the reality is that we consider ephedrine-less ephedra to be more like a “green tea extract” these days.

    • Higenamine (25mg)

      A beta agonist found in the Nandina plant, higenamine increases production of noradrenaline, stimulating the “fight or flight” response in the body which helps to burn fat for fuel, and, more importantly boost motivation, focus, and energy levels.

      As much as we like this ingredient, it’s about to get (nearly) doubled up next:

    • Synephrine (23mg)

      Another prominent beta receptor agonist is Synephrine. Derived from the bitter orange plant, synephrine acts on the Beta-2 and Beta-3 receptors in your body[10,11] where it frees stored fatty acids to be burned off for energy. You’ll be burning fat for fuel and sparing your glycogen stores for the really heavy and intense work during your training sessions.

      The higenamine / synephrine combination has been going away, but we love it at these doses – there’s definitely going to be some extra zing to these ingredients, and we’re not done yet:

    • Octopamine (7mg)

      This is yet another fat loss agent / stimulant, and it’s also found alongside synephrine in citrus aurantium (bitter orange). Octopamine inhibits glucose uptake by fat cells by inhibiting the beta-3 receptors in the body. Expect more of the same fat-liberating, fat-burning benefits from this not-so-frequently used stimulant!

  • Mind Muscle Fusion Matrix

    • Choline Bitartrate (180mg)

      NTel Pharma Arez Black Stack

      AREZ Black is fully loaded and stocked at your local supp shop, waiting for you to give it a go.

      Choline provides the foundation for all great focus-boosting complexes. It’s a valuable nootropic that enhances acetylcholine production in the body. With extra choline, you’ll notice heightened focus and a significantly stronger mind-muscle connection.

      The dose here is on the low side for us as well as the bitartrate form being not nearly as effective as other forms like Alpha GPC or Citicoline.

    • Noopept (5mg)

      Noopept is a dipeptide (composed of two amino acids) regarded as one of the most powerful nootropics available. It helps improve acetylcholine receptor function and Long Term Potentiation (LTP) by binding to the NMDA glutamatergic receptors.[12]

      If you’re curious to learn even more about this wonder nootropic, check out our in-depth guide titled Noopept: Enhancing the Smart Within.

      This is just enough to take the edge off at two scoops!

    • Vinpocetine (5mg)

      Last up in the Mind Muscle Fusion portion of Arez Black is a nootropic that seemingly doesn’t get used nearly enough as it once did –, Vinpocetine. Found in periwinkle, vinpocetine enhances both short and long-term memory by increasing cerebral blood flow[13,14,15], which is why it’s sometimes called “Viagra for the brain.”[16]

      Increased blood flow delivers more oxygen and nutrients to the brain, supporting its function and translating to improved focus, reaction speed, and awareness.

  • Immortal Endurance / Pump Matrix

    • Beta Alanine (2g)

      Beta Alanine Boosts Exercise Performance

      Beta Alanine Boosts Exercise Performance, plain and simple.

      Beta alanine is a well known endurance boosting ingredient thanks to its widespread use and strong research backing demonstrating its effectiveness. BA increases carnosine levels in the muscle,[17] thereby enhancing the buffering capacity of your muscles against acidic ion accumulation.[18]

      Better clearance of these metabolic waste products prevents the pH in your muscles from dropping too low, and ultimately inhibiting your performance. One scoop provide half of your daily beta alanine needs, and if you venture down the two-scoop road, you might be in for some tingles! Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

    • Agmatine Sulfate (750mg)

      L-Arginine Pathway

      How L-Arginine Works

      A very underrated pump booster, agmatine finds itself as the prominent nitric oxide boosting compound in AREZ Black. Agmatine inhibits arginase, the enzyme that breaks down Arginine in the body. Halting the actions of arginase promotes uninhibited NO-production leading to better blood flow and bigger pumps!

      The 750mg dose / scoop is good with us, as most people will in all likelihood be 2-scooping AREZ Black to take advantage of the higher caffeine content. Using two scoops delivers a robust 1.5g of agmatine, and that’s when things really start to get fun.

    • L-Arginine HCl (750mg)

      L-Arginine is a carryover from a bygone era. We’ve never found it to be particularly useful, but there are others out there who still swear by the stuff. So we reached out to NTel Pharma for comment on its inclusion, and we’ve got their response after our next ingredient, which they also addressed!

    • Citrulline Malate (375mg)

      One of our favorite NO-boosting compounds is Citrulline (or Citrulline Malate). While it’s been pretty conclusively proven to be a better pump agent than arginine,[19] you’re going to need A LOT more than what’s included here, about 10x as much.

      • “Why such small doses of Arginine and Citrulline?”

        ”With the Pump Matrix boasting 1,500MG of Agmatine (per 2 scoops), and 750mg Ornithine (Which I found to be MUCH more profound than Ornithine and Arginine in my personal trials), I wanted to show their counterparts on the label but didn’t feel the need to make their doses as hefty compared to our Agmatine dosing.

        In all fairness, AREZ, both Black and White are both Stimulant based Pre-Workouts. We offer RoadMap NO, and Avenge Nitro as stackable products that would take AREZ BLACK into CRAZY pump matrix numbers when combined, and even add Arachidonic Acid to the mix either way.

        I personally cannot stand the idea of a PURELY stim based pre-workout without even mentioning the likes of Citrulline. I feel synergy lives in this combination, and when coupled with our pump inducing products, can take Citrulline to over 3G in addition to what would then be 2G of Agmatine.

        DEFINITELY be on the lookout for ROADMAP OVERFLOW, which will be a complete Non-Stim Pre for us to Flex our Pump Formulation skills.”

    • L-Ornithine (375mg)

      Ornithine is a precursor to Arginine that has been shown to be effective for increasing nitric oxide production in the body.[20] On top of that, when combined with arginine, as it is here, it’s shown to increase growth hormone and IGF-1 levels too![21]

  • Anti-Crash Blend (405mg)

    Similar to what we saw with the brand’s Clenadrol X fat burning supplement, AREZ Black also contains a crash prevention blend to help avoid any abrupt drops in energy (i.e. “crashes) in the hours after taking the product. NTel Pharma has included a comprehensive blend of B Vitamins, Vitamin C, and L-Dopa to prevent any potential crash which may happen to some due to the high stims involved in Arez Black.

How is AreZ Black Different from AreZ God of the Gym (“White”)?

”Our customers have always voiced their love for our stimulant based formulas, and with a full panel non-stim formulas on the horizon, we wanted to pull no punches with the AREZ Product Line. That being said, we differentiated the products by goal vice by strength.

AREZ White you will find to be superior for burning fat, increasing heart rate, and making sure you get the fulfilling sweat you’re looking for from a high intensity workout. AREZ Black on the other hand: features a better Pump Matrix, a less neuromotor affecting stimulant profile that still packs a killer punch, and the addition of Testosterone Boosting ingredients. It also subtracts the Alpha Yohimbine to give it a slightly less intense rush, and make it the perfect Stim-Based Pre-Workout option for NTel Pharma fans who encounter cold sweats from the Alpha Yohimbine.

Caffeine is dosed significantly less as well, to cut down on Vasoconstriction with the Arez Black, and the Anti-Crash blend is amped up from before.”

Flavors Available

NTel Clenadrol X AREZ Black

The wait is over…the blackout has taken over with AREZ Black!

Just like we saw with AREZ White, NTel isn’t taking the easy road with boring flavors like Fruit Punch or Blue Raz. Instead, we get three unique flavors sure to tantalize your taste buds:

  • Key Lime Pie
  • Star Blast
  • Strawberry Banana

Are you ready to embrace the dark side?

If you’re a stim and focus buff, but AREZ White was a little too intense for you, then Arez Black is right up your alley.

The synergistic mix of “regular” stims and “exotic” ones, along with the ease of scaling from the doses used make AREZ Black an ideal option for those looking to test the waters with more aggressively formulated pre workouts.

NTel Pharma always does a great job of making things different – no “me too” formulas here. In this case, a rare usage of Tongkat Ali in a pre workout will be fun for many, while the DMHA + Ephedra mix — but not too much — will make those happy who want some of these next-generation stimulants but don’t want it to cave their skulls in!
