Neurocore Buying Guide

Neurocore Buying Guide Review and Results:

Editor’s rating: 

The old version of the Neurocore preworkout supplement was both popular and good. Apparently, Muscletech didn’t think that was good enough so they keep making a few tweaks and so the formulas keep changing. Sometimes even the packaging changes. It’s a bit hard to keep track of them all, which does add to the confusion.

What is Neurocore?

Neurocore is a powdered formula that’s mixed with water. You drink it 30 to 45 minutes before you work out, and then it’s supposed to help you with your exercise efforts.

For one, it will directly help with the process of building both strength and muscles. It offers muscle pumps that last for a long while, and it really helps in making you feel strong and energetic. It also allows you to focus better and you’re able to deal more effectively with stress. The ingredients include all the usual suspects: citrulline, beta alanine, creatine, rhodiola, and good old caffeine.


For the most part, regardless of the version that’s reviewed, the Neurocore gets good reviews. The review at is quite typical. It classifies it as a topnotch product, even though this review has the yohimbe ingredient.

Another review at isn’t quite as effusive, though it still considers Neurocore a decent product. This time, the review is for the 2016 version that comes with the dark packaging.

All these are different from the current version, however, which is now available at the Muscletech site. There, the ingredients on the label show no hint of any yohimbe at all. Unfortunately, it’s a bit too new and so there aren’t any new reviews about this one yet.


User reviews through the years have been usually positive. On to see buying options and reviews) it averages a not-so-bad rating of 4.1 stars, and that’s with more than a hundred reviews. However, this is still the old version with the yohimbe and without the ginseng.

Some of the comments proved the wisdom of following the directions when it comes to taking Neurocore. On the official website, it warns about starting off slowly at first with just 1 scoop. You can then gradually increase the dosage to 2 scoops before you finally end up with 3 scoops a day. For some people, even a single scoop may prove too much and ¾ of a scoop may be better. Others don’t think that it’s realty effective:

  • I did 1 scoop and in had stomach upset.” – Tamera Torrez, verified purchase,
  • I feel that there are better quality pre-workouts on the market that give a better pump.” –E. Pena, verified purchase,

However, many of the reviews do say that it works well for them:

  • I can keep going to two hours and repeat each exercise before I am tired.” – Mark O., verified purchase,
  • I have been using about 1 scoop per use and still get that great pump and sweet wave of energy.” Garctia, verified purchase,

On the store, the reviewers are also mostly happy about it:

  • Favorite pre so far that I’ve had. Always come back to it after straying to try another. Solid energy and focus, often don’t even use a full scoop.” –swollconnell, verified buyer,
  • One of the best pre-workouts I’ve tried.” – Ramir3718, verified buyer,
  • This is one of the best pre workouts!!!! The focus i get is crazy good!!!” –DrSchmee,


Now this is the confusing part. In the older versions of 2014, each scoop offered about 1g for beta alanine, creatine, and citrulline and 25 mg of yohimbe. In the 2016 version, the performance ingredients went up to 1.5g or 1.6g for each, and the yohimbe went down to 20 mg. The latest dosages revert back to about 1g for the performance ingredients but the yoshimbe is nowhere to be seen.

Just keep in mind that you need to start slow so you can get a feel for the effect. Mind you, many of the reviews (even the ones that give it perfect scores) mention a slight tingling feeling. It’s even possible to get an upset stomach.

You cannot take more than 3 scoops within a 24-hour period. The directions also recommend that you see a doctor if you’re planning to use this for more than 4 weeks.

Where to Buy

You can buy it at the online Wal-Mart website, where you can choose between 2 flavors. The Icy Blue offers 127 grams, and it costs $24.97. The Icy Rocket is 175 grams, and it costs $24.99. This is site you reach when you click the buy link at the official Muscletech site.

On Amazon(click here to see buying options on Amazon), you get the 2016 version, and this time it costs just $17. 80. On, the price is $20.99


It certainly is a confusing jumble of ingredient lists and prices, isn’t it? You just don’t know what you’re going to get. So perhaps you may want to buy something that’s much clearer in what it offers.
