REVIEW OF MRM DRIVEN
Back To Top

Introduction:

MRM DRIVEN

The Claim:

Driven is the first Pre-workout supplement engineered to propel your body's Metabolic Responses driving you through the wall and beyond. Designed for the professional athlete and highly active individual allowing your body to Respond to Your Sport. This supplement's powerful combination of synergistic ingredients ignites your training intensity, but more importantly, achieves rapid results for all your performance goals.

This is a phenomenal claim, one that is difficult to backup. That being said, MRM Driven is no slouch.

Driven increases energy, provides explosive power, laser like focus and concentration, and amplifies endurance levels so you can train with more intensity. This scientific formula promotes quicker recovery resulting in increased speed, strength, and lean muscle growth.

The problem with energy drinks is, they aren't steroids! Therefore, claims that are unrealistic, build up a hype that even a solid energy drink mix can't touch.

Driven is formulated to:
  • Increase Energy, Stamina, and Endurance
  • Enhance Anti-Catabolic Synergism to Increase Lean Muscle Growth
  • Stimulate and Speed Fat Loss
  • Reduce Lactic Acid Buildup for more Intense Workouts
  • Assist the body to Recover Quicker and Reduce Muscle Soreness
  • Increase Mental Focus and Clarity
  • Ignite IGF-1 and Growth Hormone Production


I'll save comments for this topic to the section regarding effectiveness of the supplement.

In regards to the claim, I award MRM Driven a 8/10 because it's on point but somewhat misleading.

Taste:

MRM Driven has two flavours: Raspberry Lemon Tart and Orange Rush. However, unless you purchase the packets (instead of the 1.1 pound container), you only have one choice. That choice is Raspberry Lemon Tart (if you buy the 1.1 pound). Therefore, I sampled MRM Driven Raspberry Lemon Tart. Anyways, let's get to taste.

As with any supplement, taste is of significant importance to the user, especially if the supplement is going to be used on a daily basis. Nobody wants to be forced to down a disgusting substance that makes you cringe at the very thought of drinking it! With this in mind, you can appreciate the importance of a tasty supplement. In the case of MRM Driven Raspberry Lemon Tart, I was neutral. Some supplements market flavourless products and claim that they are neutral tasting. For the most part, I find that these so-called neutral tasting supplements are often quite distasteful and a task to drink. In the case of MRM Driven Raspberry Lemon Tart, it was supposed to taste like a Raspberry Lemon Tart. However, the Raspberry Lemon Tart flavour was so minimal that it tasted like extremely light flavoured water with that flavour being Lemon Raspberry Tart. The flavour was so minimal that to be it was hardly noticeable, thus I found it to be quite neutral tasting in water.

By chance, one day I mixed MRM Driven Raspberry Lemon Tart in with Gatorade and found that it enhanced the flavour of the Gatorade. It was fantastic! It tasted great in both red and blue colours. However, this added a lot of simple carbohydrates to the mix. If your goal is to avoid simple carbohydrates, then this shouldn't be your choice of beverage. That being said, MRM Driven Raspberry Lemon Tart has 0 sugars when mixed in water. I find that simple carbohydrates taken pre (within 30 minutes) or post-workout (within 30 minutes after your workout) have relatively little effect on weight gain, and serve to amp up energy or replace glycogen stores lost during exercise, which is very important.

All that being said, I was happy to have something that was truly neutral tasting because this way, I was able to mix it with different flavoured products. However, this product wasn't totally neutral and if possible a product with a good taste all its own is the goal. Therefore, in regards to taste, I award MRM Driven Raspberry Lemon Tart a 7/10.

Solubility/Texture:

The mixability and texture of a supplement are important. For those of you that think otherwise, you clearly haven't experienced a chalky and gritty powder ball going down your throat because it didn't mix in! This is an unpleasant experience. Also, you don't want a product which has such poor mixability that you're unable to get results because all of the supplement is settling at the bottom of the shake! It is for these reasons why we review mixability and texture. With all this in mind, onward we go.

I found that MRM Driven Raspberry Lemon Tart mixed in fairly well. However, it wasn't a great mix. For the most part, MRM Driven Raspberry Lemon Tart would mix in but with some settling. This settling occurred not only at the bottom of the shake but also some clinging to the sides of the cup occurred as well. However, this was quickly remedied by adding additional water, after consuming the beverage, to allow for excess powder to be collected and drank. Therefore, in regards to mixability, I award MRM Driven Raspberry Lemon Tart a 6/10.

I found that MRM Driven Raspberry Lemon Tart had a hardly noticeable texture. The texture of MRM Driven Raspberry Lemon Tart was a slightly gritty one but was absolutely tolerable. Therefore, in regards to texture, I award MRM Driven Raspberry Lemon Tart a 7.5/10.

Effectiveness:

The most important part of any supplement is effectiveness. This is of particular importance with a pre-workout formula because you're depending on it for energy to power you through your workout or give you that ever elusive "edge." Therefore, in this category MRM Driven Raspberry Lemon Tart will receive the most scrutiny of any category. Let's get to it.

MRM claims that...

Driven is formulated to:

  • Increase Energy, Stamina, and Endurance
  • Enhance Anti-Catabolic Synergism to Increase Lean Muscle Growth
  • Stimulate and Speed Fat Loss
  • Reduce Lactic Acid Buildup for more Intense Workouts
  • Assist the body to Recover Quicker and Reduce Muscle Soreness
  • Increase Mental Focus and Clarity
  • Ignite IGF-1 and Growth Hormone Production


I found that MRM Driven Raspberry Lemon Tart did increase my energy, stamina and endurance! However, when you read this, it may appear better than it really is. In other words, I did notice an increase in energy, stamina and endurance but it wasn't anything as noticeable as I imagine steroids are, which is what most people expect. Unfortunately, when you have these unrealistic expectations, it really ruins your experience. With energy drinks, I find that you initially experience an increase in focus and that then elevates your personal motivation. To elicit the true effects of an energy drink, I find that you really have to push yourself. If you go half ass in the workout, there is really no need of a pre-workout amplifier such as MRM Driven Raspberry Lemon Tart. However, if you push yourself, you'll notice that extra rep or two coming through, that slight increase in pump and maybe even a few pounds extra of weight. This all leads to a better sense of wellbeing because who doesn't feel better after a pleasurable experience such as this!?!?!? This is where I find the effects of the energy drink really shining through. MRM Driven Raspberry Lemon Tart was not exception. However, MRM Driven Raspberry Lemon Tart did not go above and beyond my expectations. Therefore, in regards to effectiveness, I award MRM Driven Raspberry Lemon Tart an 8/10.

Overall Review:

As we discussed earlier in the review, advertisements for supplements are often somewhat exaggerated. If you're aware of this going in, it makes for a much more pleasant experience. Expect the realistic, not the unrealistic and you will not be displeased. MRM Driven Raspberry Lemon Tart has what I deem to be basically a neutral taste. There is somewhat of a Raspberry Lemon Tart flavouring. However, this flavouring is so minimal it's almost nonexistent. Therefore, I call MRM Driven Raspberry Lemon Tart a neutral tasting supplement for the most part. I found that MRM Driven Raspberry Lemon Tart mixed in fairly well, with some supplement residue being left over. However, as discussed above, this is easily remedied by adding additional liquid (water, juice, etc.) to gather up the remaining powder. The texture was somewhat gritty but not much of a problem. When it comes to effectiveness, MRM Driven Raspberry Lemon Tart worked but it didn't go above and beyond my expectations for an energy drink so I ranked it accordingly. With all this in mind, I award MRM Driven Raspberry Lemon Tart a 7.5/10 for an overall review.
