Scivation Novem™ is the only nervous system stimulating, muscle potentiating and protecting formula to provide maximal energy and intensity so you can charge through the most extreme workouts, and rapidly resynthesize ATP, buffer ions and reset muscle firing to increase workout volume and maximize muscle overload.*
So no forced rep is wasted, Scivation Novem™ also includes a powerful antioxidant blend to support removal of free radicals, quickly recharge active muscle cells and optimize lean muscle development when combined with a low carbohydrate diet and rigorous exercise plan.*
Novem is formulated with a precise blend of key ingredients, synergistically involved in cellular processes to optimize muscle performance and response when consumed prior to exercise. Specifically, Novem uses three distinct combinations of ingredients — the Muscle Power Blend, the Mental and Physical Energy Booster Blend, and the Muscle Protector Blend —to prime your muscles, energize your mind and body, and stave off stress and catabolism.*
Creatine Monohydrate increases vital phosphocreatine stores and accelerate ATP resynthesis during and following high-intensity exercise so you can train harder, go longer, and recover faster. The end result is a higher training volume which leads to greater overall gains in muscle mass, strength, power and performance.*
Taurine has a major role in affecting cell volume, detoxification, modulating nervous system excitability and cell membrane stability, but it may be Taurine’s effects on calcium flux into and out of a cell that make it one of the most effective, natural supplements to increase strength and power output as well as speed recovery between muscle contractions.*
Did You Know? Aside from being your body’s most abundant free amino acid in excitable tissue, Taurine’s transport into skeletal muscle is significantly elevated in response to the exercise-induced rise in cortisol. Interestingly, nitric oxide (NO) significantly reduces Taurine transport because of NO’s role in relaxing a cell versus Taurine’s role in stimulating powerful and repeated muscle contractions.*
Beta-Alanine supplementation significantly increases muscle carnosine concentrations; one of the three naturally occurring histidine dipeptides present in Type II (anaerobic/power) muscle fibers. The most important role Beta-Alanine performs is its ability to increase training volume and intensity by neutralizing the highly charged hydrogen ions (protons) that are generated when ATP is used to perform work.*
Did You Know? Beta-Alanine and Taurine compete for transport, and that a disproportional increase in Beta-Alanine supply can reduce Taurine uptake into the brain and muscles. Scivation Novem uses a precise ratio of Taurine-to-Beta-Alanine to support optimal muscle performance and recovery.*
NAT is the acetylated and water-soluble form of the amino acid Tyrosine, and has been shown to prolong and augment an exercise-, diet restricted- or stimulant-induced rise in catecholamines (e.g., norepinephrine, dopamine, or epinephrine). These catecholamines affect fat and fuel utilization, nervous system sensitivity and excitability, mental energy and more.*
Did You Know? Consuming carbohydrates will reduce the effects of tyrosine.*
A precise dose of Caffeine has been added to increase the strength of stimulatory signals transmitted to cells. This pre-workout powerhouse increases fat utilization for fuel, spares carbohydrate oxidation, increases total caloric expenditure, decreases fatigue, increases performance and reaction time, and enhances mental focus and alertness.*
NAC has been shown to significantly increase the amount of glutathione - the body’s primary antioxidant - within a cell, especially during times when oxidative stress exceeds glutathione supply such as during intense exercise. If left unaddressed, the imbalance between increased glutathione demand and supply will eventually result in muscle catabolism and fatigue, a decline in fat burning and decreased insulin sensitivity.*
Did You Know? The effects of NAC may increase as you become more physically fit. NAC may increase the production of erythropoietin (EPO), can improve blood flow, and may be particularly useful if you smoke, are exposed to secondhand smoke, or chronically consume alcohol or NSAIDs such as acetaminophen.*
These two essential vitamins and antioxidants - vitamins C and E - work together to improve exercise performance. Vitamin C functions as an essential cofactor in alpha-ketoglutarate-dependent dioxygenase reactions responsible for maintaining metabolic rate and energy expenditure. Vitamin C also scavenges free radicals produced during cellular reactions and therefore protects a cell from oxidative stress and damage. Vitamin E is the lipid-soluble equivalent to Vitamin C, and is responsible for neutralizing free radicals having derived from fat peroxidation. Collectively, muscle protein is protected and the cell membrane integrity is maintained to enable greater total work at a given exercise intensity.*
Whereas NAC directly increases glutathione within a cell, Alpha-Lipoic Acid helps to spare glutathione use by working within a cell’s mitochondria - the high-energy yielding part of a cell. The sodium-bound form of alpha-lipoic acid not only increases its water solubility, but more importantly, Na-R-ALA is significantly more effective at increasing total plasma concentrations and speed of absorption, versus unbound alpha-lipoic acid.*
What is Novem?
Novem is the most advanced pre-workout annihilation formula you will ever try. There are no B.S. ingredients here. Whether you’re a physique athlete, strongman, powerlifter, traditional athlete (soccer, football, basketball,) endurance competitor, or just looking to significantly change your body composition through resistance training and nutrition, Novem will maximize training intensity to support your goals. Novem isn’t some “kitchen sink” formula with a sprinkling of a whole lot of ingredients and little efficacy. Instead, Novem was precisely formulated with efficacious doses of key ingredients that work synergistically to support optimal muscle performance and intensity. One serving of Novem contains an incredible:*
Novem can be mixed with a spoon and is available in two deliciously refreshing flavors, Mixed Berry or Fruit Punch, or a Variety Pack containing both.
Who should use Novem?
Novem can be used by anyone, male or female, who wants to perform at their best. Additionally, Novem is perfect of anyone looking for a legitimate physical and mental pick-me-up, but without boatloads of caffeine or clinically unsubstantiated ingredients such as 1,3-dimethylamylamine.
When’s the best time to consume Novem?
Novem is best consumed prior to exercise. On non-training days, Novem can be consumed immediately upon waking (before breakfast) or between meals to help support physical and mental energy needs.† For best results, do not consume with food or too soon after consuming a meal.
How much Novem should I consume for it to be most effective?
For best mixing results and taste, pour eight fluid ounces of filtered water into a shaker cup. Add 1 scoop of Novem. Close the shaker cup and swirl to create a vortex effect and draw the Novem powder into the liquid. Once the Novem powder has fallen into solution, shake vigorously for about 25 shakes. NOTE: If you find that some of the material settles at the bottom of the shaker cup, you may not have used the correct dilution ratio of 1 scoop of Novem per eight ounces of water.
What’s the difference between Novem and other pre-workout supplements?
In the 2002 movie “Catch Me if You Can,” Leonardo DiCaprio’s character is asked by his father (played by Christopher Walken), “You know why the Yankees always win, Frank?” DiCaprio replies, “‘Cause they have Mickey Mantle?” Frank Sr. responds, “No, it’s ‘cause the other teams can’t stop staring at those damn pinstripes.” This kind of thinking dominates the majority of products within the sports nutrition industry, and specifically within the modern crop of pre-workout formulas. Other companies hope to “wow” you with their extensive list of ingredients and trademarked nomenclature; their pinstripes, as it were. However, it’s impossible for each of the items they list to be used in efficacious doses and, frankly, the ingredients commonly used often compete against one another instead of working together.
What results will I achieve from using Novem?
The results you can expect from the ingredient doses used in Novem, include:
How fast will I see results from using Novem?
Most Novem users report an immediate response during training. Variables such as increased physical and mental energy and focus, strength, training volume, reduced fatigue, and increased muscular endurance and power, are common to first-time Novem users. For body composition changes, it is recommended that Novem be used daily for a minimum of 6-8 weeks.*
Is Novem safe?
Each of the individual ingredients used in Novem has an incredibly high dosing threshold and validated clinical trials to support safety across a wide range of consumers. Additionally, Scivation’s manufacturing is an industry leader in terms of integrity and accountability. Each batch of Novem undergoes rigorous quality assurance and analytical testing to validate ingredient purity and potency, and is blended and packaged in an NSF for Sport® certified facility to ensure no banned substances are inadvertently introduced into the manufacturing process. However, Novem does contain 187 mg of caffeine per serving. This is less caffeine than is found in a 12-ounce cup of Starbucks coffee, but sensitive users may briefly experience the classic caffeinated symptoms of shakiness, increased heartrate, and mild nausea. Additionally, Novem contains Beta-Alanine, which may result in a “tingling” skin sensation or flushed effect in some users.*
How does Novem compare to other products?
Within the pre-workout category, competitive products are either under-dosed, contain irrelevant “show-off” ingredients, or are so ignorantly formulated as to make on wonder what species of animal the company believes is buying their product.
One noteworthy point of differentiation between Novem and much of the industry is that Novem was not formulated as a nitric oxide (NO) product. Specifically, because NO reduces exercise training volume and cell excitability - NO is a second messenger involved in recovery processes; by contrast, catecholamines increase cAMP, the second messenger that stimulates the production of ATP for muscle contractions and enhances the oxidation of fats as fuel. Such biochemical realities likely explain why, in healthy populations, there are zero human studies that have shown a significant body composition or strength improvement from pre-workout supplementation with NO-stimulating ingredients. If you add NO ingredients to a post-workout formula, however, as we have with the new DH32-Pro™ (coming soon), then the power of NO’s beneficial effects are on your side.*
Are there any other products that will help improve the results I achieve when using Novem?
Novem was formulated to remove the need for additional ingredients while you train or compete. However, Novem was explicitly formulated to contain no carbohydrates or sugar so that you could dictate how you may want to manipulate your carbohydrate needs based upon your training cycle or duration. Therefore, when carbohydrates are desired, combine Novem with up to 0.45 g of carbohydrate per pound of bodyweight, per hour of exercise. When carbohydrates are added, increase the amount of water used per serving so that the finished formula concentration is easily digestible during exercise. Adding Carbohydrates, however, may reduce the absorption of Tyrosine.

Flavor: Fruit Punch
Taste is good but the effects are ehh. Tried Super pump max before and although i like the ingredient list more on novem, I'm not feeling much from it. Small small spark of energy but I take pre workout for the energy so I think it's ehh overall.
Flavor: Fruit Punch
Taste: Great. Cant argue with the others. Bar none the best tasting pre workout on the shelves today.
Effect: meh, not so much a fan. It didnt do squat for me. Ive had better success with noxipro and Jack3d. Some people dont like that jittery feeling in a preworkout supplement but I do. I still gave this product a decent rating because of taste.......but I wont buy it again. (its just not for me)
Flavor: Mixed Berry
Best Tasting Preworkout Ive ever tried! I love Novem, Its gave me great energy, Not too crazy though, But the perfect amount to get you in and out of the gym feeling good. It gave me good confidence on my lifts also. Ive tried NO Xplode and Jack3d before. This one easily tops them all for taste, mixability, and basically everything! Tastes awesome! Cant wait to try Fruit Punch on my next order
Flavor: Fruit Punch
Hands down the best pre-workout on the market to date. For the first time I have found something the honestly help me burn fat, and gain lean mass at the same time. This product surpasses all expectations. Taste, mixability, and effectiveness. I would recomend it to anybody any day of the week. Absolutely sick job creating such a pre-workout!!!
Flavor: Fruit Punch
Wow!!! As a preworkout supplement this one is right on the money in terms of what a preworkout should do.
First, let's get a little background out of the way. I have been lifting weights since 2007 on a 4-day split. My previous preworkout supplements have been Jack3d, Universal Animal Rage and SuperPump 250. I have been on Jack3d for at least two bottles now and just recently made the transition to Novem.
Jack3d - Doesn't deliver a surge of immediate energy without jitteriness, provided concentration, and no tingling sensation from the beta-alanine. Towards the back end of my workout I felt tired I was ready to go home.
Novem - Instant surge of energy without jitteriness, provided concentration, tingling sensation on my face, hands, and ears (two scoops). After I was done with my workout (legs, calves, and abs) I felt like I could do the whole workout all over again.
Performance - The energy was strong but not overpowering. It was a continuous flow of energy and concentration. I felt like an animal and hit it hard. Even now, a few hours after my workout, I still feel great!
Taste - Simply AMAZING! If you've ever had cherry Kool-Aid, that's exactly what it tastes like. I couldn't believe how great it tastes.
Mixability - Two stirs and it was completely dissolved leaving nothing behind at the bottom of the cup.
Conclusion - Hands down the best preworkout I have ever taken. A huge step up from Jack3d and that says a lot given its popularity.
Taste - 10/10
Performance - 10/10
Flavor: Mixed Berry
Just got back from the gym, first time taking Novem. I trained back and abs followed by 45mins of light intensity cardio. Overall, I liked Novem. The energy is gave was not too intense (1MR etc) and helped my push the weight, and get through the boring ass cardio after. Could definitely feel the beta alanine when I first took it, more pre workouts should include this as it's scientifically proven. For me, Novem ranks a 9 overall. The reason I am not giving it a 10 because I didnt feel any increase in muscle pumps. When compared to their old product, Quake, this feels much better and less jittery. Finally, Novem is hands down the best TASTING pre-workout out there right now. It's actually a pleasure to drink, unlike most that you literally have to shot down.
Flavor: Mixed Berry
Got my tub of this yesterday and used it last night. This is much better than Quake was, you can tel that as soon as you open the container. Its not clumpy but a very fine powder. Mixed up easily and tasted OK for a pre workout. Energy was hitting within about 10 mins and lasted for about 2 hours. No real crash at all. I trained at 4:30 and was in bed without any sleep problems at 10. Overall, a great product and a big improvement over the old quake.
