JetRush is an herbal stimulant that promises dramatic results. It comes from NexGen Biolabs who are well known for selling OTC supplements based on prescription drugs. NexGen have been criticised for their aggressive marketing practices in the past.
JetRush is an herbal supplement that comes with some dangerous looking advertising. The advertising claims that JetRush is one of the strongest legal stimulants on the market.
According to the Nexgen advertising the key features of JetRush are;
- Extreme Energy
- Mental Focus
- Appetite Suppression & Weight Control
- Mood Enhancement
- For advanced stimulant users only
Taking stimulants to promote weight loss is nothing new. Firing up your adrenaline in order for the fight or flight response to kick in, does decrease your appetite short term and the energy boosting effect may enable you to keep going for longer.
If you work out or take exercise, you may find that your efforts are enhanced and improve your results short term. However, there are many problems with taking stimulants generally, not least the crash that can come once the effects wear off.
How To Take JetRush
To use JetRush take one capsule per day. If necessary, you can take a second capsule 6-8 hours later. You should take it on an empty stomach for the maximum effect.
According to Nexgen JetRush will stay in your system for between 7-9 hours so you should take it no later than 9 hours before you plan to go to bed unless you need to be up all night.
JetRush contains five stimulant ingredients that work on the neurotransmitters of the brain norepinephrine and dopamine.
Norephine is the main brain transmitter that prompts the flight or fight response and increases hormone adrenaline levels. Dopamine is a brain chemical that creates feelings of pleasure and feelings of euphoria.
NexGen Biolabs are the company behind JetRush. The company is based in Kentucky and Florida and market a range of supplements said to provide the same results as prescription medication.
Other NexGen products include AdderRX an OTC supplement that contains synthetic amphetamine Nuphetamine HCM said to boost brainpower, energy and concentration. It is based on the prescription drug Adderall that is used to treat Attention Deficit disorder.
Nexgen became the subject of a report by ABC news after company reps were criticized for handing out free samples of the pills described as Knock off Adderall tablets to university students on US campuses.

Nexgen Biolabs also sell Phentermine substitutes – aimed specifically at weight loss. These are Phen RX and Phen RX PM – a Phentermine substitute that you take at night time. They also market SlenderFruit 7 a superfruit weight loss supplement that we reviewed and rejected in a previous investigation.

What Does JetRush Claim To Do?
The JetRush advertising makes some powerful claims;
Take energy to the next level with JetRush, the world’s most powerful energizer!
JetRush is guaranteed to be the most powerful stimulant you have ever tried or your money back! In fact, JetRush rivals and even exceeds the energy, focus, and powerful stimulation from many prescription or illicit drugs.
The product comes with a warning;
Warning: JetRush has been developed in order to provide extreme energy, and may be too powerful for those without a history of stimulant use. Follow all directions carefully and discontinue use if you experience any adverse effects.
So What Is JetRush and What Are The Ingredients For JetRush?
JetRush is a stimulant that you take to enhance energy levels and the idea is that this helps you lose weight too.
It contains five stimulant ingredients in a proprietary blend so we cannot provide a full ingredients breakdown; however, there is 625mg of active ingredients in each capsule.
- Caffeine Anhydrous: Caffeine enhances energy and has a metabolism boosting effect so helps you burn off fat and calories. A medium sized cup of filter coffee contains around 100mg of caffeine. Caffeine is the world’s most popular stimulant but can cause numerous physical and mental side effects if taken to excess.
- Synephrine: This stimulant raises the heart rate and increases blood pressure and is billed as a way to increase the metabolism in place of banned substance ephedrine.
This has made it an ingredient in some weight loss pills because increasing the metabolism is a short cut to weight loss. However, Synephrine is not safe and can cause heart palpitations and a whole range of side effects. It has been linked to causing heart attacks and strokes. Take a look at our Synephrine ingredient article here.
- Hordenine:: is a plant compound found in a wide variety of plants including barley and cactus.
It is a common ingredient in weight loss supplements because it is believed to stimulate the nervous system and speed the metabolism. It is often used in combination with PEA (Phenylethylamine)
Clinical tests suggest that Hordenine is an indirectly acting adrenergic agent that produces its pharmacological effects by releasing stored norepinephrine. This means it relates to the increase of adrenaline levels and the flight or fight response. This effect may help you lose your appetite by making you feel too stressed to eat. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hordenine
- Phenylethylamine (PEA):: is an amino acid, which is found in chocolate and other foodstuffs. The Phenylethylamine deriviative are in the same chemical class as psychoactive drugs and stimulants including amphetamines. PEA can cause a short-lived high effect but is quickly metabolized. It is this high that makes it attractive as a supplement but the effect often lasts only a few minutes before it wears off. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phenethylamine
- Schizandrol: This fairly unknown ingredient is sometimes used in body building products. It is a plant extract from a native Chinese plant Schisandra chinensis and is used in Chinese herbal medicine. Schizandrol has a stimulant effect within a few minutes of taking and is believed to increase sexual stamina but there is no medical evidence for this. The short term high will last around an hour and the side effects have not been fully investigated. It may be unsafe.
So What Does All This Mean?
You will notice the effects of JetRush pretty soon after taking and you may feel a short-term buzz and an increase in energy levels. However, this supplement is not safe for health and lacks an adequate ingredients breakdown. It is possible that the principle ingredient is caffeine and synephrine, which is dangerous, may be only in minimal amounts for example, but we cannot say for sure.
We do not advise you to take this supplement for weight loss or for any other reason.
Does JetRush Have Any Side Effects?
Yes, it has side effects and many customers have reported problems. Ignore the claims by Nexgen that this product is safe and does not cause side effects because this is not true.
We wanted to bring you some true-life independent stories but over the last few hours at the time of writing, JetRush was removed from Amazon.com without any explanation.
If you take JetRush you can expect side effects. These may include;
- Heart palpitations
- Mood swings
- Increased blood pressure
- Elevated heart rate
- Depression and low mood once the effects wear off
- Ringing in the ears – symptom of high blood pressure
More seriously, Synephrine may increase the risk of heart attack or stroke.
Caution: Avoid if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. Do not take if you have any history of stimulant abuse or mental illness. Avoid if you suffer from a heart or blood pressure related medical condition. Do not take if you suffer from Glaucoma or a thyroid related medical condition, liver disease or a kidney problem. Do not take if you are on medication because of possible drug interactions. The simple advice is to avoid this supplement.
Any JetRush Reviews From Customers?
There were numerous reviews left by customers on the Amazon .com website, which are now unavailable to access as the product appears to have been withdrawn from sale.
Many customers reported that JetRush did have an energy boosting effect the first couple of times they used it but that this effect became less powerful the more frequently they tried it. This was a common experience.
A high number of customers found that they suffered from side effects such as headaches and nausea. Many people enjoyed the stimulant effects and some people did not notice much difference and felt that the effects did not live up to the hype.
If you drink a lot of coffee already, it is highly possible that your body is accustomed to a stimulant effect. One drawback with caffeine as an ingredient to promote weight loss is that the fat burning effects wear off once the body gets used to it.
So Does JetRush Work?
It depends on what you want it to do. If you take it occasionally to keep you awake then it will work to do that, but taken regularly to lose weight will unlikely be effective. You run the risk of side effects and any positive benefits to your weight will wear off once your body gets used to it.
Customers need to remember that the diet pills industry is unregulated and that some supplements are potentially dangerous. We feel that JetRush falls into this category.
Where Can I Buy JetRush?
You can buy JetRush direct from the Nexgen Biolabs website.
One tub of 30 pills (one month’s supply if taken as advised) costs $44.99
Your shipping charges will be calculated depending on your address. Nexgen ship internationally so you can buy if you do not live within the USA.
JetRush is no longer available via Amazon and the product and any reference to it has been removed over the last few hours (at the time of writing).
You can also find JetRush for sale on eBay.com for around $26.99. Shipping costs depend on seller and where you live. Despite one eBay seller selling over 700 tubs of JetRush, we were unable to find any customer feedback for this supplement.
What About A Guarantee
Despite the advertised “money back if you are not satisfied” Nexgen Biolabs do not appear to offer a guarantee.
We are frankly appalled by JetRush. This supplement will very unlikely do anything for your health or weight loss and comes with a strong risk of potentially dangerous side effects.
It lacks a comprehensive ingredients profile so you do not know the individual ingredients quantities and according to customers it does not even work long term.
We cannot find one good point about it and do not advise anyone to try it. It is highly possible that Amazon have come to the same conclusion. It is an easy decision. We reject JetRush.
