Pure Cane Pre Workout Detailed Report

Effectiveness Rating

A product's effectiveness rating illustrates how well a product works based on what the research says about its ingredient makeup. Researchers conduct studies on supplement ingredients to gauge effectiveness. The Supplement Database grades products based on how effective their individual ingredients are found to be in peer reviewed research articles.

The effectiveness rating of both supplement ingredients and supplement products are evaluated on a 3 point scale: 3.0 being the most effective, 1.0 being the least effective.

  • extremely effective products: ratings equal to or greater than 2.5
    • extremely effective products are made up of high quality ingredients and should lead to positive results
  • moderately effective products: ratings equal to or greater than 1.5 and less than 2.5
    • moderately effective products are made up of a mix of both high and low quality ingredients and may lead to some positive results
  • ineffective products: ratings less than 1.5
    • ineffective products are made up of low quality ingredients and will not lead to positive results

Pure Cane Pre Workout's Effectiveness Rating: 1.60 out of 3. This rating means this product is made from a mix of high and low quality ingredients, and may lead to some positive results.

Amount of Research Rating

The Amount of Research Rating is a measure of how much research has been conducted on a product's ingredient lineup.

Oftentimes, manufacturers rely on ingredients without adequate research backing. They may do this to compete with other products that are already using poorly researched ingredients, or, they are using a very small amount of research as a poor justification to use a certain ingredient. This strategy may create marketable products with popular ingredients, that are unfortunately, ineffective.

The amount of research contained in the database on a product's ingredients determines the Amount of Research Rating. Products with higher ratings are made up of more thoroughly researched ingredients than products with lower ratings. This rating is separate from a product's effectiveness rating (from above).

The higher the research rating, the more valid the effectiveness rating is. If there is only one study on a particular ingredient, we cannot be certain its conclusions are valid. The more studies included in the database on an ingredient, the more certain we are that those conclusions are valid. Ideally, you should look for supplement products with both high effectiveness and research ratings.

The Amount of Research Rating is derived from how many studies are included in the database on a product's ingredients.

  • research rating equal to or greater than 80: the product's ingredients are thoroughly researched
  • research rating greater than or equal to 60 and less than 80: the product's ingredients are moderately researched
  • research rating less than 60: the product is using ingredients that do not have sufficient research backing; avoid these products

Pure Cane Pre Workout's Amount of Research Rating is 46.500. This rating means there is an insufficient amount of research on the product's ingredients to ensure its effectiveness rating is valid. You should avoid using this product.

Claim Ratings

The product’s effectiveness rating is an overall description of how well a product does or doesn't work. Individual studies research a supplement ingredient's effects on a certain claim. For example: does creatine monohydrate increase strength, or does beta alanine improve running performance?

The first column contains the name of the ingredient as well as the amount found in this product. The second column contains the range of effective research doses for that ingredient.

An orange down arrow is shown if the product’s ingredient amount is lower than the effective research range.

An orange up arrow is shown if the product’s ingredient amount is higher than the effective research range.

A green check mark is shown if the product's ingredient amount falls within the effective research range.

Ingredient + Amount Range (low to high)

Nutrition Label and Ingredient Transparency

Nutrition label transparency refers to how many ingredients are listed with amounts on the product label. Many supplement manufacturers hide ingredient amounts under the guise of great sounding proprietary blends such as "Maximum Muscular Size Enhancer" or "Anabolic Cell Strength Matrix."

When manufacturers use proprietary blends, they can hide ingredient amounts making it difficult for consumers to know whether a product is effective.

The transparency score is displayed as a percentage of how many ingredients are listed with amounts. If a product lists all ingredient amounts, it's transparency score is 100%. Products that do not list any amounts have scores of 0%.

Pure Cane Pre Workout's transparency score is: 100%

  • total ingredients: 12
  • ingredients with amounts listed: 12
  • ingredients without amounts listed: 0
  • transparency score: 100%

The product label below was generated from the information contained in the database about its ingredients and amounts. Actual product labels may differ in appearance.
