Nutrition Label and Ingredient Transparency

Animal Pump lists the amount of 12% of its ingredients. It contains 26 ingredients. Out of those, 3 are listed with amounts while 23 are listed without amounts. The chart below illustrates how many ingredients in Animal Pump are listed with amounts. Green represents ingredients with amounts while red represents ingredients without amounts. The more green, the better.

Many supplement manufacturers hide the amount of a certain ingredient under the guise of a great sounding proprietary blend such as "Maximum Muscular Size Enhancer" or "Anabolic Cell Strength Matrix."

The amount of each individual ingredient included is hidden from the label making it impossible to know what's actually in the product you're using. Companies have the ability to mix costly and effective ingredients with cheap and ineffective ingredients making it difficult to tell which one is actually in a product.

Products with high percentages of ingredients without amounts are hiding the true nature of their effectiveness. Ideally, a product should list amounts of 100% of the ingredients they are using.

The Bottom Line

The Effectiveness Rating describes how well Animal Pump works based on the individual supplements it contains. The Ingredient Rating describes how many of the ingredients are rated as effective or moderately effective.
