Today, we’re doing something a little outside of our norm. We like taking a break from Android occasionally, so this the perfect opportunity to do our first off-topic review. The first product of its kind to land on our desk is the BetaNOX Ultimate Energy Dietary Supplement, from New Whey Nutrition.
Before we get started, I have to disclaim the fact that I’m not normally an energy drink guy. I despise Red Bull, and I’ve never met a Monster flavor I can drink a whole can of. That being said, I like to try new things, especially when they’re sent to me for free in exchange for my honest opinion.
I also have to let you know – I’m not a doctor. I don’t even play one on TV. By no means should you take this review as an encouragement to consume BetaNOX. Do your research first and make an informed decision as to whether or not this product is right for your body and your needs. And definitely steer clear, if you’re under

How does BetaNOX taste?
Slightly sour, but not to the point of distaste. It’s kinda sweet at the same time, too, and reminds me of cough syrup, but with a much thinner consistency. It tastes much better than RedBull or other energy drinks I’ve tried, but it’s still not a taste I consider pleasurable. There are two flavor options available: Citrus Blast and Berry Lemon Blast. And blast you will.
Does BetaNOX work?
You’re damn straight, it does. Just one of those little tubes is enough to make you feel like Jon Jones after a celebratory night out with an eightball of Tony Montana’s finest.
BetaNOX will get you amped, ladies and gents. And I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. In fact, I don’t recommend taking it within 6 hours of bedtime, or you can kiss your sleep schedule goodbye and plan on watching The Late Late Show. Say hello to James Corden for me.
I’m not a workout guy, but if I was, I’d imagine I’d see a benefit of some sort, in terms of added energy. But considering the most exercise I get is climbing the three flights of stairs in my apartment building multiple times a day, I don’t have much to say about working out. Those stairs are a bitch, by the way, and I get plenty of steps in.
Don’t judge me.
Will BetaNOX make me sick/kill me?
Who knows?! I drank it for a week straight, and I’m still alive. It either did a number on my stomach, or I had an extremely coincidental stomach bug, but I spent a good deal of that week on the toilet. I’ll spare you the details, but they weren’t my finest moments, that’s for sure.
And let’s face it, folks. Death is one of only two things in this life that are certain – plus, YOLO, right? Unless you have some sort of severe allergic reaction, or you’re drinking multiple tubes of BetaNOX at once on top of other sources of caffeine, you’re likely going to be just fine. Again, I highly recommend you do your research on the ingredients to make sure your body can handle everything, and only drink one tube within a 24-hour period.
I also shared some of my samples with two of my co-workers. I wanted to see if it was just me, or if they had stomach issues, too. One co-worker said it gave them a case of the bubble-guts, while both said it gave them a tingly “pins-and-needles” sensation in their face. I didn’t experience that one, but the score is 2-1 there.
Apparently, this is completely normal. According to the manufacturer’s website, some peoples’ bodies react to the arginine by having a hot feeling or skin redness for a few minutes. This is caused by the increased blood flow near the skin.
Will I crash when BetaNOX wears off?
In short, yes – yes, you will. I do, and I do hard every time.
I was going to do a video review of BetaNOX, but I wasn’t sure one was warranted. I searched YouTube and, of course, there are already some posted. Sure, I could be original and do my own, but then I foud this gem.
Feast your eyes on the best damn product review of any kind you’ll ever see. And try to contain your laughter.
He seems to know his shit, right? Right.
Wrap-up & final rating
In summary, BetaNOX is worth checking out, if you’re brave and need a boost of energy. The likelihood of any major adverse reactions occurring is relatively low, as long as you’re abiding by usage recommendations.
Would I suggest this product to others? Sure, but I’d also let them know about my own personal experiences and the stomach issues I suspect it caused, but hell – I’ll even drink it again, occasionally. I still have about 15 tubes left, and they aren’t gonna drink themselves.
Just don’t tell me I didn’t warn you when you feel like you’re living in an episode of Breaking Bad.
Thanks to the fine folks at New Whey Nutrition for sending out these samples for me to try. Believe it or not, despite my sarcastic sense of humor, I actually do like BetaNOX, and I appreciate the chance to give it a spot on our review table.
