What Is Promax Pump?
Promax Pump is a pre-workout supplement intended to boost workout performance by utilizing an all-natural formula blend to stimulate nitric oxide production, purportedly supporting significant increases in muscle mass, strength, endurance, energy and stamina. It also claims to work by improving blood, thereby reducing muscle soreness and cutting recovery time. This product is directed toward athletes looking to improve their sports performance, weightlifters, bodybuilders and anyone who wants to maximize workout performance and muscle gain. It was researched, developed and distributed by a United States-based manufacturer and is sold not only in the US but all over the world. It has been featured on many media outlets in the health and fitness industry.
This supplement contains a range of arginines designed to work synergistically with the body’s natural processes to boost nitric oxide production. Its key ingredients are L-Arginine AKG, L-Arginine HCL and Citrulline Malate. All of its ingredients are extracted from plants, herbs, roots, vitamins and minerals. The fact that it is natural and legal has helped to make it a popular alternative to anabolic supplements in the health and fitness market. It comes in capsule form and is designed to be taken once daily in combination with a balanced diet and exercise routine.
The manufacturer of Promax Pump is a company by the same name. Unfortunately, this manufacturer offers very little in the way of company information online. It does not have an official website of its own nor does it provide any company-specific links on the product website. Unlike many fitness supplement suppliers, it does not even provide a physical mailing address nor does it provide the address for merchandise returns. Although it may be that this manufacturer prefers to let their products do the talking instead of choosing to step into the spotlight themselves, at least a minimum of information such as company history and a mission statement might facilitate greater consumer trust.
This company may want to – at the very least – provide their physical corporate address, as this seems to be the bare standard in the natural muscle-building supplement industry. Going a step further and adding the company history would likely go a long way toward presenting a more established seller status to more seasoned fitness consumers. Due to the lack of info available, it is unknown whether this manufacturer offers other products and/or services. If so, linking to such on the Promax Pump site could be an effective way to not only increase revenue but offer further fitness solutions to customers.
How Promax Pump Works?
This supplement works by stimulating the release and production of nitric oxide, a natural chemical key to both muscle-building and post-workout recovery. Nitric oxide forms in the body’s vascular endothelium, a single layer of cells between the vascular smooth muscle cells and the vessel lumen. Production of this molecule is triggered, according to the manufacturer, by both exercise and the Promax Pump capsules. Once the capsules dissolve in the bloodstream, the plant extracts and amino acids trigger a chemical reaction that relaxes the smooth muscles around blood vessels. This thereby allows more oxygen-rich blood and nutrients to flow into working muscle tissue.
According to the product label, the capsules provide a day-long release. This appears to mean that, instead of a quick one-shot of energy immediately after use, it releases a steady surge of energy throughout the day. The manufacturer specifically states that this product is not intended for casual dieting nor is it intended to be used as a meal replacer. In contrast with other organic muscle-building supplements, users are instructed to take one gelatin capsule daily in order to see fast body fat-burning and lean muscle mass-building results. It can be taken as a sole supplement or stacked with other organic supplements.
Ingredients of Promax Pump
This workout supplement’s formula contains more than 3000 mg of arginines for maximum nitric oxide-producing capability. It contains zero caffeine and hence offers far less potential for jitters than the highly-caffeinated pre-workout supplements currently saturating the market. It is completely Creatine-free as well, which many seasoned workout buffs may find to be an added bonus. Bodybuilders and weightlifters who are in the process of cycling off Creatine will likely especially appreciate this formula feature. It capsules contain zero sodium in order to eliminate the possibility of bloating.
L-Arginine AKG, a non-essential amino acid and precursor to nitric oxide, is one of the key ingredients in the Promax Pump formula. The body utilizes this compound to generate proteins, enzymes and naturally-produced chemicals such as Creatine, all of which contribute to muscle growth. L-Arginine HCL is a synthetically produced form of Arginine that also includes a hydrogen chloride molecule in its makeup. It is believed by many to contribute to increase the diameter of blood vessels for faster post-workout recovery as well as to support increased nitric oxide production. Citrulline Malate – an amino acid and organic compound originally derived from watermelons – is believed to contribute to driving up energy levels as well as sustained muscle growth and protein synthesis.
L-Norvaline is another amino acid making up this product’s proprietary formula which many bodybuilders believe is effective in increasing nitric oxide levels, cutting recovery time after workouts and increasing nutrient and oxygen transportation to muscles. Another key ingredient. Alpha Lipoic Acid, is a natural compound that converts food into glucose for heightened energy, which is then followed by the release of insulin from the pancreas to forward glucose into muscle and fat cells; studies show that this process increases certain key chemical components on the outside of muscle cells, which contributes to muscle growth. L-Histidine is another formula ingredient and amino acid currently popular in the sports supplement industry due to its central role in forming proteins and influencing several of the body’s metabolic processes. Other ingredients rounding out the full list are Vanadyl Sulfate, Gelatin, Silicon Dioxide and Magnesium Stearate.
Promax Pump promises users a more powerful pump and maximum muscle-building capability. It also promises to increase strength and endurance as well as to elevate energy levels, allowing for longer, more intense training sessions. It also promises to speed up post-workout recovery and to lessen muscle cramps by improving blood flow. Another advantage users may experience is greater vascularity during workouts, a potential benefit also likely due to improved blood flow.
This product also has the advantage of being a safer, natural and fully legal solution for athletes and competitive bodybuilders who are looking to build lean muscle mass safely and legally. As all of its ingredients are organic extracts, it has a far lesser potential to cause negative side effects than its illegal anabolic counterparts. It also offer the benefit of coming in an easy-to-use capsule form with a far less chance of negative side effects due to its natural extract content.
Promax Pump was manufactured in a GMP-certified lab. For those newer to the workout supplement industry, GMP is an acronym for ‘Good Manufacturing Practice.’ It is comprised of a set of federal regulations to ensure that the company that has developed the product, complies with a strict set of rules regarding manufacturing and product quality practices. Products must meet at least a minimum of these standards in order to become GMP-certified. As such, it is a label consumers should always look for when considering a supplement purchase.
The transaction section of the product website also certifies that the server connection is protected by a ‘128-Bit Secure Connection.’ This is an important standard for online transactions, and works to ensure that customer information is kept as secure as possible from malware and hacking. This technology utilizes encryption to scramble data in order to make it unreadable to potential hackers.
I sit at a desk for nine hours a day, five days a week, and I don’t always have time to eat healthy. This has been my lifestyle for years now, so it goes without saying I’m not exactly looking or feeling my best. The pounds have crept on and what was once a six-pack started to become a spare tire. I decided to do something about it, so I ordered some Promax Pump. Let me just say it was the best fitness decision I’ve made in a long time – ten pounds down, a new six-pack and one new girlfriend later, I’m very glad I did. – Paul M., sales manager in Orlando, FL, USA
I started out with the free trial and haven’t looked back since. The shipping was fast, the customer service was excellent and I’ve gained an inch-and-a-half of rock-solid muscle. I stack this with another good protein product, and it gives me all the energy I need to get it done in the gym. I would definitely recommend giving this a shot. – Raul S., chef in Mexico City, Mexico
I first heard about Promax Pump from a friend who was going on and on about its performance-enhancing effects, and I had to try it for myself. The energy surge it gives me actually makes going to the gym fun. I can work out longer and I feel like I can get more sets and reps in. For me, this stuff does what it says it will. – Matthew T., fitness center manager in Loundes, OH, USA
Awards & Media Coverage
Promax Pump has appeared on a variety of major-market media outlets such as CBS, MSNBC and CNN Health. It has even been advertised in the pages of men’s magazine giant Maxim magazine. The product website attributes the quote “Get the results you always wanted legally” to the general media listing, though the site doesn’t specify which outlet the quote belongs to. Still, this product’s media coverage and all-natural formula blend have contributed to its popularity among athletes, bodybuilders and weightlifters who are looking to get ripped safely and legally. It also maintains a rather extensive presence in fitness forums and review websites online.
It seems this supplement has collected at least one award thus far. Perhaps most impressively is the fact that Promax Pump is a ‘Ripped 2015’ winner. The website also credits it as being the ‘#1 nitric oxide supplement on the market today’ but, perhaps not surprisingly, does not provide links or statistics to provide context for this assertion. As more discerning customers may have doubts regarding impressive claims without accompanying links, this manufacturer may want to also include such verifying data.
The manufacturer offers a 14-day trial program for the cost of only shipping and handling. If the trial is successful and Promax Pump has provided excellent results, the customer must do nothing in order to be auto-enrolled in the company’s auto-delivery program. This means that, approximately 45 days from the date of the initial order, the customer’s credit card will be billed the full amount for the trial bottle and will be charged and shipped out a new one every month or so on an ongoing basis. The customer, of course, retains the option to cancel or modify an order at any time by contacting customer service by telephone or by email. If the trial is for any reason unsuccessful, the customer must contact customer service before the end of the trial period to avoid incurring further charges.
Straight sale (or non-trial program) customers also have the option of a 30-day money-back guarantee in case the product does not perform as expected. To receive a refund, the buyer must contact customer service within 30 days of the purchase date to receive a Return Authorization Number. According to company policy, all returns must be sent within seven days of the RMA request, and no return packages will be accepted without this number. The RMA number must be displayed on the outside of the package, and customers must send back unused or empty bottles. This policy of accepting empty or unused bottles for refunds is a rarity in the fitness supplement industry, and customers who do choose this option will certainly appreciate this flexibility.
All Promax Pump orders are shipped using Standard Ground Mail Service via Canada Post. Occasionally, the company offers a Priority Processing Option, which prioritizes such shipments and ensures these packages will be delivered the very next business day for all orders placed before 10:00 p.m. GMT. Packages are estimated to arrive approximately 5-7 business days after shipment. The vendor further specifies that shipments are not sent out on Saturdays, Sundays or any holidays. It also specifies that the company is not liable for any packages that are lost or stolen in transit.
Furthermore, all arrival dates and times are estimations only; specific dates and times cannot be guaranteed. The cost of shipping for a bottle of Promax Pump is $7.98. Per the company’s shipping policy, no refunds will be issued for any shipping and handling charges for products delivered. In the event of a lost or stolen item, the manufacturer will instead provide a complimentary reshipment. This reshipment option can be selected for an additional $0.99; customers are encouraged to contact the customer service department for any claims.
The manufacturer of Promax Pump offers a basic but sufficiently comprehensive customer service program. Customers may opt to speak with a company representative by calling a toll-free 1-888 telephone number. They may also contact a representative via the provided customer support email address listed on the product website. Support center hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PST. Although the service center does not appear to be open on weekends, these are standard hours and it is unlikely many customers will find this availability window unsatisfying.
Promax Pump encourages customers to contact their support department for any and all questions. This includes questions about company policy, shipping, returns, package tracking and for any questions at all. At this time, the manufacturer does not list a physical address on the website for the corporate facilities or for general inquiries, nor does it list a return address. Overall, however, the hours of availability and avenues of contact are sufficient to fit most customer needs.

There is also a certificate reading ‘100% Secure Site.’ The security suite put in place to ensure safe online transactions includes McAfee Secure, Norton Secured and TRUSTe certified privacy. These trust marks demonstrate that the company and its site have passed security checks certifying its legitimacy and security as well as to enforce daily scans to prevent possible data breaches. They also work to guard against malware, viruses, phishing and other potential misuse of customers’ personal and financial information.
The non-trial cost for a straight sale bottle of Promax Pump is $94.99.
