Lit Up by Applied Nutriceuticals Review
“You can train like you’re on crack and get nowhere, or you can train hard, train smart and grow like a weed.” So saythe folks at Applied Nutriceuticals about using a product like Lit Up compared to so many other pre-workout supplements that just get you wired stimulants. To clarify, Lit Up by Applied Nutriceuticals is not a diet pill and is actually designed to work in the opposite way – it’s supposed to help you bulk up in your workouts and still stay hungry. From the looks of it, it has some amino acids to help with muscular development and stimulants for energy, but doesn’t really appear all that unique…

Lit Up by Applied Nutriceuticals Marketing
The marketing for a bodybuilding product like Lit Up is unsurprisingly over-the-top, but that comes with the territory. The claims of boosting testosterone and being so much different than other pre-workout formulas are pretty much BS, but there doesn’t seem to be anything horribly deceiving.
Lit Up by Applied Nutriceuticals Price
One container of Lit Up is priced at $35 plus shipping, which seems about average for this type of supplement or even a diet pill, until you consider that it provides only 10 days worth of dosage. $105 per month is through the roof for any supplement like this.
Lit Up by Applied Nutriceuticals Guarantee
Applied Nutriceuticals offers a money-back guarantee for Lit Up and the rest of its products provided you return the unused portion of the product and give them a reason why you weren’t satisfied within 30 days. They don’t specify if you get a refund on just the unused portion or the entire purchase, but it’s good to see that Applied Nutriceuticals has at least enough confidence in Lit Up to offer a guarantee.
Lit Up by Applied Nutriceuticals Conclusion
While we like the idea of helping you workout consistently, decrease muscle fatigue and not getting you so jacked up on stimulants that you’re wired all day and can’t eat, it appears that Lit Up by Applied Nutriceuticals still contains so many of the same ingredients as its competitors. With the dosing (4 scoops per day) you are likely to be just pissing a lot of the vitamins away (literally) and its just a little too much to ask for more of the same. In any case, it wouldn’t work like a diet pill, and that’s what you’re here for after all, right?
