About The Product
As we mentioned, we’re not quite sure what MASSACR3 is really supposed to be; it’s advertised on Olympus Labs’ website as a ‘muscle builder’, but the benefits written on its packaging (‘Muscle Pumps, Vasoilation’) suggest that it’s more of a pre-workout supplement.
To further add to this confusion, it contains Green Tea Extract, which is a fat burning nutrient. So it seems to be confused in its identity here.
Anyway, it’s priced at $69.99 for 30 serving containers, making it one of the more expensive products. But can it compete with the premium products on the market?
This is exactly the question we’ll be answering by analyzing MASSACR3’s nutrient profile in the next section. But first, we’ll tell you more about the company behind it.
Who are Olympus Labs?
While Olympus Labs do have an ‘about us’ section, they’ve decided to tell you the fictional story behind the name of their company – instead of telling you important details such as the year they were founded etc.
Make of this what you will, but we would have preferred to see more useful information instead of a short fictional story here. But ultimately, this is just personal preference.
Anyway, none of this affects the safety and effectiveness of their supplement, MASSACR3. So let’s see which ingredients are inside below…
MASSCR3 Ingredients Explained
MASSACR3 relies heavily on Laxogenin, as it only contains 3 ingredients overall. As we’ve mentioned, we’re not actually sure what the main reason for buying this supplement is supposed to be…
Ultimately, it’s marketed as a ‘muscle builder’, but doesn’t contain any testosterone boosting nutrients that’ll enhance muscle growth.
By looking at the benefits listed on the container, we would believe that it’s geared towards being a pre-workout supplement.
Anyway, we’ll expand on this and more, as we take you through each ingredient inside MASSACR3. By the end of this review, you’ll know how safe and effective this product really is.
Here’s Everything You Need To Know:
Not much is known about this ingredient, as there hasn’t been any reliable studies conducted about it; this means that we have to consider it to be an unreliable nutrient here.
However, it’s believed to improve your strength while helping you lose body fat (with people even believing it works without exercising).
Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, that’s because it most likely is.
Every so often, the supplements industry releases positive rumours about certain ingredients so that companies can profit from them; this was seen with raspberry keteones, which was later proven to be ineffective.
IF if does work, then it’s believed that the optimal dosage for Laxogenin is 100mg. So Olympus Labs have taken this theory and added 300mg in MASSACR3, to try and ensure that it works.
However, remember that this product relies heavily on this ingredient working; MASSACR3 only contains 2 other ingredients, so $69.99 is a lot of money to pay for an unreliable product.
If it does work, then you’re laughing. But there are more reliable products to help you pack-on muscle mass that are tried-and-tested for around the same price.
Green Tea Extract
It’s strange that a company has patented Green Tea Extract under the name ‘Vaso6’; this name implies that you would experience a boost in blood flow, but that certainly isn’t a main benefit of this nutrient.
Everyone knows that Green Tea Extract is good for you. In fact, studies have proven it’s able to improve the health of almost every organ in your body, as well as promoting fat loss.
However, one thing it’s not proven to do is enhance your blood flow or muscle pumps. If you’re looking for this benefit during your gym sessions, then we suggest choosing a pre-workout supplement containing optimal dosages of Citrulline Malate.
Not only that, the optimal dosage of Green Tea Extract for fat loss has proven to be 500mg per serving. As MASSACR3 only contains 300mg, it’s not even likely to deliver its full benefits here.
Urobolin (Punica Granatum)
In case Urobolin is the patented name for Punica Granatum, which is a fancy name for pomegranate; you’ve probably seen or eaten the fruit at some point in your life.
So what does it do? Well, the only reliable things it’s shown to do, is deliver good amounts of Vitamin C and antioxidants.
This is because pomegranates contain high amounts of a molecule called Punicalagins; this is believed to be very beneficial for your health, although some studies suggest that not much is absorbed into your blood stream in humans, only in rats).
Regardless of this, although this would improve your general health, it’s not really going to enhance your muscle growth.
However, since we’ve been quite critical of this review (we’re just being honest and giving you the stone-cold truth here), we’ll give this ingredient the benefit of the doubt….
Basically, some believe that Punica Granatum can enhance your blood flow, which would improve your muscle pumps in the gym. So to be as unbias as possible, we’re willing to give this the thumbs up for this benefit.
But again, we’ve read studies that show it only increases your blood flow at dosages of 800mg per serving; Olympus Labs’ MASSACR3 only contains 150mg Punica Granatum…

We mentioned before that Laxogenin hasn’t been studied much, so it’s not very reliable at delivering benefits. Well, this also means that we’re unsure whether it can cause any side effects.
As we probably sound pretty critical in this review, we’re willing to give it the benefit of the doubt here; as no study has actually proven that it causes side effects, there’s no reason to believe that it does.
But we’ll update this review if we see any further evidence in the future. If it remains unedited, then Laxogenin will be safe to consume (although it might not do much).
MASSACR3 Review Conclusion
We might get some backlash from this review, as it might seem negative. But we always back-up our reasons for everything, and ultimately, we’re here to give you the stone-cold truth without any BS.
Not only that, we’ve actually given this product the benefit of the doubt many times, to try and keep it from being completely critical too; we don’t like completely slating companies for their work, but we don’t like customers wasting money on supplements either.
For this reason, we don’t believe that MASSACR3 is going to help you build muscle or improve your sporting performance. The only thing it might do, is slightly promote fat loss due to containing Green Tea Extract, but it’s not going to compete with specialist fat burners either.
If your main goal is to build muscle mass, then we recommend investing in a high-quality, proven testosterone booster. If you’re looking to improve your performance in the gym or at sports, then a pre-workout supplement would be your best option.

8 thoughts on “Olympus Labs MASSACR3 Review”
Have you concidered that the green tea extract most likely is extracted for something else than the usual egcg
Of course I realize that green tea extract also contains caffeine. However, if green tea extract was being added here to be the main caffeine source, we would have expected to be informed about a rough estimate of the caffeine content – this is simply our honest opinion.
We’ll be open to re-review this product if the nutrient profile does change slightly.
ofcourse your going to get backlash, why wouldnt you when its obvious you didnt even log the results of your intake, its like saying VITAMIN C as you mentioned “boosting your immune system” which doesnt so all that great but in any case haveing a stronger immune system can help fight off catabolism. I might sound like im over hypeing the product, but your surely underestimating it profoundly. So knowledge on ingredients wont cut it, but the way it reacts with your body, ive gained a considerable amount of muscle mass on this,m about 8 pounds of lean mass and about 13 pounds in total weight in a month, due to its cost i decided to try “green tea liquids”, 2 pomegranate and 1 capsule of 50 mg of laxogenin for a course of 3 weeks or so with the same amount of calorie intake and i didnt gain size at all, well about a pound in weight, but theirs my actual review on it. then a bash.
You don’t agree that Vitamin C can improve your immune system and help reduce the duration of illness? Let me point you towards a clinical study that proves otherwise, sir: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16373990 – We actually pointed this out as one of the good features of Olympus Labs MASSACR3, by the way.
Everyone will have their opinion on products, so we apologise if you don’t agree with our honest opinion. But again, it’s simply our honest opinion.
We always source our data from clinical studies published on respected websites.
Useful info thx! not sure why this costs so much as has 3 ingredients only, really useful review of massacr3 here
Thanks for reaching out! We’re glad that you enjoyed our review!
Please let us know if we can help you with anything else!
laxogenin, if of high quality will heal injuries very fast. it is not really anabolic but allows much harder training.
vaso-6 is basically a type of catechin similar to epicatechin but also similar to opc from grape seed.
urobolin is urolithin b and 150mg is a very high dosage, one that can hardly achieved with any pomegranate extract.
now this is a great formula. but a company has to save money. using branded laxogenin would be very expensive. vaso-6 will work better than normal green tea extract and is patented but probably not that costly.
urolithin b is definitely synthetic. pomegranate extract o high quality is very expensive.
so laxosterone laxogenin and 1000mg-1500mg pomella pomegranate with some green tea extract would be more expensive to produce, far more. it would also have the benefits of laxogenin and pomella which are significant. olympus used pomegranate extract before, now urobolin is probably cheaper as it is definitely synthetic. using pomella pomegranate (it makes a massive difference wether you use a standardized 30% punicallagin product or some extract standardized to ellagic acid).
it would however be much more expensive as branded laxogenin at 100mg for 30 days is already the cost of the product and pomella is by no means cheap either.
anyhow, this is not a useless ingredient with underdosed green tea extract and underdosed pomegranate. if the laxogenin is legit one will have extremely fast tissue healing, the vaso-6 may improve blood flow and endurance and if urolithin b works similar to a high dose pomella then endurance, pump, insulin sensitivity, recovery will all be enhanced. in fact a blueberry and pomegranate extract from life extension has made a significant impact on these parameters.
sure, laxosterone 100mg, pteropure pterostilbene 100mg and pomella pomegranate 1500mg would make for a product with benefits and results too many to mention and improve performance and health beyond imagination. the cost would be very high however and it does not sound as fancy.
the point is that this article has not understood the concept behind the product and aside from marketing the fact that there should be tremendous benefits on metabolism and health, allowing for more frequent, harder training, fatloss despite increased carb intake, endurance, pump, vascularity, improvedd cognition, antiinflammatory effects and therefore resulting in significant changes to strength, body composition, well-being etc.
As far as the vitamin c stuff goes. What needs to be looked at is meta a meta analysis of vitamin c. It doesn’t have an impact but typically only when deficent …even then it does almost nothing as a supplement. Unless you have scurvy then zinc is a better option upon decreasing cold and boosting immunity. Also the green tea is extracted for neither caffeine or ecgc is extracted for its vasodilation capabilities. It’s the first of its kind. Not hating , blog is great. Just informing .
Hey Nick, thanks for reaching out!
There have been many studies showing that Vitamin C is capable of benefitting your general health etc. But, we do agree that it’s not worth taking a supplement in order to consume enough Vitamin C on a daily basis (we always promote healthy eating and consuming all nutrients through diet if possible).
We also agree that Zinc is much more beneficial; we can’t argue with the studies that show Zinc can support healthy testosterone levels and general health. We always try to stay under the RDA for Zinc though (40mg per day), so we try to avoid supplements containing close to this in 1 serving.
Thanks again for your insight and we’re glad that you enjoy our blog!
