Animal Pak – By Universal – Things you need to know

Vitamins, they are so essential for our daily life, for our health, so we won’t get sick, or to maintain it, but also, for training it is vital to take them, you stretch your limit by doing heavier exercises, and so your body is in demand for more nutrients, and more vitamins. Now, if you don’t have them, there could be a gap forming, and eventually you could have problems because of that, you can get sick or you can have other problems. Now, we have lots of supplements out there, and int his post we’re going to review one of those, which is called Animal Pak by Universal.

The following topics we’re going to discuss:


– What is the product?

– What has it inside?

– What kind of flavors does it have?

– The general opinion

– The overall rating, followed by my personal rating

– Pros and cons

– How does it perform compared to other supplements of the same branch?

– Should you buy it?

– Serving size

– Prices and where to buy

– Ending conclusion


there’s a lot to go through, so let’s start!



Animal Pak, what is it?



Like I’ve already mentioned, this is a multivitamin supplement, specially aided for sporters, athletes, and people who performs exercises, you need this or else your health will crumble, it is like one athlete state, take this one away, and your foundation will fall away, and you’ll end with nothing left, lots of people won’t think about taking them, but training without vitamins is an absolutely no go!

Also, to make sure the rest of your supplements work perfectly, you need to have everything covered, like something “stupid” as vitamins, because this is actually the last thing you would think about ( many people who starts to exercise make this mistake), but you can do damage to your body, since you will get a deficit, and in the long while, lose size, energy and strength.

So, this one covers all the vitamins and minerals needed to perform well in the gym! Let us take a closer look to what it has inside.


The ingredients of the supplement


It doesn’t have to surprise you, it has lots of vitamins inside, you can find the following ingredients in it:

– It has 20 calories, having more of that wouldn’t make sense for a multivitamin product

– 2 grams of carbs, which has 1 gram of Dietary Fiber

– 3 grams of protein

– 9,900 IU of Vitamin A, which is 198% of the daily dose, so it is good enough to cover the growth you will have of training

– 1 gram of Vitamin C, which is 1.667%(!!) of your average daily dose!

– 680IU of Vitamin D, this is 170% of your DV

– 300IU of Vitamin E, which is 1.000% of your DV

– 76 mg of Thiamin, which is 5.067% of the daily dose

– The same 76 mg of Robiflavin, this is 4.471% of the DV

– 82 mg of Niacin, it is “only” 410% of the DV

– 180 mg of Vitamin B6, which is 9.000% of the DV

– 400 mcg of Folic Acid, which is perfectly 100% of the DV

– 50 mcg of Vitamin B12, which is 833% of the DV

– 300 mcg of Biotin, this is also 100% of the DV

– 76 mg of Pantothenic Acid, this is 760% DV

– 170 mg of Calcium, this is 17% of the DV ( you can find the rest very easily in your food, or other supplements)

– 30 mg of Phosphorus, this is only 3% of DV

– 150 mcg of Iodine, this is 100% of DV

– 400 mg of Magnesium, it is 100% DV

– 30 mg of Zinc, which is 200% DV

– 50 mcg Selenium, this is 71% DV

– 600 mcg of Copper, which is 30% DV

– 5 mg of manganese, it is 250% of DV

– 60 mcg of Chromium, this is 50% DV

– 260 mg of Potassium, it is 7% of the DV

As you see, the most ingredients are way above the 100% DV, and especially the vitamins are, so no worry to have fewer vitamins than necessary with this supplement.



But they also included a Performance Complex, this includes:



– Uni-Pro Blend ( Whey Protein isolate, Liver, Beef Protein Isolate, Eleutherococcus senticosus, Hawthorn, Milk Thistle, Citrus Bioflavonoids)

– Para-Aminobenzoic Acid

– Choline Bitartrate

– Pyridoxine a-Ketoglutarate

– Inositol

– Carnitine



They’ve also added an Amino Acid Complex, consisting of:


– Arginine

– Glutamic Acid

– Leucine

– Aspartic Acid

– Lysine

– Threonine

– Isoleucine

– Valine

– Proline

– Serine


– Phenylalanine

– Tyrosine

– Cystine

– Methionine

– Histidine

– Glycine

– Tryptophan



What else is an Antioxidant Complex, which has:


– Pine Bark Extract

– Alpha Lipoic Acid, also known as ALA

– Grapeseed Extract

– Kelp

– Coenzyme Q10

– Lutein

– Lycopene



And to end, they added another complex, which is called Digestive Enzyme Complex, which has:


– Inulin ( not Insulin)

– Bromelain

– Papain

– Acid Protease

– Lipase

This is a whole list of ingredients, but all this combined will make sure you will have the strength, power and sufficient nutrients streaming towards your body and muscles, to maintain your health, improve your size, and get more power!


Which kind of flavors does it have?



Luckily, this list is not too long, well, not like the ingredients list.

– Plain, this isn’t bad, but we liked the flavored ones more

– Cherry Berry

– Orange


We liked the orange flavor the most, but we were not quite a fan of the flavors and the taste of it.


The general opinion about it



The general reception is quite positive, people love the effect this supplement has, it has all the vitamins and minerals necessary, you don’t need to worry anymore about it, and can hit the gym harder and harder, and your resources will be filled every time before and after it.

Also, the fact you don’t urinate too much, even when this has lots of vitamins, is a big plus, for other supplements it is possible to urinate lots (I know it from my own experience), also the kidneys and liver health will be promoted, due the antioxidants inside the product.

You have the choice between the pills and the powder, the majority would choose the pills, due the taste is not so good, to say it generous (we know this after reviewing it, you can hardly swallow it). That is really the big minor point that we found, and also what other people think.

Now it is time to look to the overall rating!


The overall rating



As you know, we divide the ratings in different parts before coming to the overall one.

Effects Rating: 9.5/10

Results Rating: 9.6/10

Product Quality Rating: 9.8/10

Top Rated Flavor: 7/10

Average Flavor Rating: 6.7/10

Verified Buyer rating: 9.5/10

Overall Rating: 9.1/10 My Personal Overall Rating: 9.2/10

The product actually deserves a better rating, but the taste/flavors really screw that, which is a really sad thing!


Pros and cons






– It has plenty of vitamins and minerals, it is good enough to get your body in the foundation it needs to perform superior in the gym

– The antioxidants in it will keep your liver and kidneys in a good condition

– Because of the effects, you will get more energy, thus increasing the reps, and weights of your training, which in return gives better results

– You don’t have to urinate lots of times a day because of the supplement

– The chance of injuries is seriously reduced because of this





– It has only one contra actually, but it is a major one, the taste/flavors. It is horrible, you almost can’t swallow it, so it is really up to you to consider taking this as capsules or go for the scoops anyway.

How does this product compare to other ones of its class?



Against the Vitamode of Evlution Nutrition -> click here to get it <-:


It is really a shame for the flavors, since it really can compete with this one, however, the Vitamode has one advantage, it is also good for the eyes and bone health.

They also didn’t take the mistake of actually bring these with flavors, but only as capsules, so let me say that the Vitamode is slightly better than the Animal Pak.


Against the Opti-Men of Optimum Nutrition -> click here to get it <-:


This is a very good product, but there are claims and comments that this product is missing some key vitamins, like some B Vitamins, to have it totally polished, it also seems that they recently change something to the pills, and some of them change into powder, we will write a review about this product soon, but what we can say is: Opti-Men is slightly less good than the Universal supplement.



Against the Men’s Extreme Sports Multi of NOW -> click here for this product <-:



This have good vitamins inside, but they have a major problem, which is that the pills are leaking when you receive them at home, something of their product process is messed up, and thus, because this is a waste of money, we highly recommend you not to buy it. So, the Animal is much better than this one!


Should you buy it?


After a while testing and reviewing it, and also taking other peoples comments and notes, we highly recommend you to buy it.

Vitamin supplements are vitamin supplements, but this one has the best one combined with some complex blends, which makes it one of the best ones out there. If you can stand the flavor, or just simply buy the capsules, to avoid the problem, you are settled for a very long while, while training and see your body growing, without having to worry about bad effects, such as depleting health or energy, since this will be maintained by this supplement.

So, we tell you, don’t hesitate, take it!

This product comes at different serving sizes, which are:

– 7 servings ( they have the Cherry Berry flavor)

Ending conclusion



Vitamins are necessary, no matter what, to preserve your health, even when you don’t train, but when you train, you really need them harder than before, since you else will create a gap, which your body will receive a big blow on that, and you will feel the effects of it sooner or later, so to prevent that and create a stable foundation for you and your body, to be sure you can train harder and receive that body of your dreams, we truly recommend you this product, it has everything inside what you need, and you won’t regret of having it for any second!

    I can appreciate the effects that this product offers. It seems that there are so many similar products in the market-what makes this one the one that I should be using?

    • Emmanuel Buysse July 26, 2018 at 2:40 am

      Hi Brad,
      the fact that this product has many complex-blends inside, plus that it has all the vital vitamins inside to cover everything, where many similar supplements don’t, makes that this one is a supplement which will aid you very good in training.

  • Jessica July 26, 2018 at 5:53 pm

    My brother could really benefit from something like this. He’s been looking into gaining weight for his health, lately, and has been trying different shakes and things … I’ll be sure to let him know about this site. Thank you for your detailed post.

    • Emmanuel Buysse July 26, 2018 at 6:06 pm

      Hi Jessica.
      I’m happy this post could help you and your brother.
      I’m confident the Animal Pak will help him through the training and let him grow!

  • Stratos July 27, 2018 at 9:48 am

    There are so many similar products that it’s good to read articles like this and be able to separate the good from the bad ones. Thank you for providing all this info and I am sure it will help those interested in it.

    • Emmanuel Buysse July 27, 2018 at 11:19 am

      Hi Stratos.
      There are thousands of products available, but the majority isn’t good. So we try to help people choosing the right products by reviewing and make them available here.

  • David July 27, 2018 at 2:25 pm

    What an in-depth article. It was so in-depth that I feel like you were in a lab testing the product with tweezers! lol. Thank you for the article, it is the best review I’ve seen on the internet!

    • Emmanuel Buysse July 28, 2018 at 8:08 am

      Hi David,
      Thank you for the positive comment!
      We do our best to make the reviews as good as possible, and to read this, it makes us happy to know we succeed in doing that!

  • LYNNE July 28, 2018 at 6:59 pm

    Sounds like a great vitamin supplement for lifters! I think the only thing it’s missing in there is the kitchen sink 🙂 thanks for the thorough review!

    • Emmanuel Buysse July 30, 2018 at 1:42 am

      Hi Lynne.
      It is a very good supplement for lifters indeed, but also, every athlete/sporter can use this, since it really covers everything.

      I’m happy to help you with this review!

  • Nick August 1, 2018 at 2:53 am

    Hey thank you for this in depth review! It has all of the info I need to make a good decision! I’m currently using a mass gainer at the moment but when I’m done with that I just might have to give this a try!

    • Emmanuel Buysse August 1, 2018 at 4:12 am

      Hi Nick.
      Thank you for the positive comment!
      I don’t know which mass gainer you’re currently using, but I’m sure the Animal Pack could really help you out, as you can combine them!

  • Kavitha September 3, 2018 at 1:22 pm

    Good review. This vitamin is only for people who do workout or it can be taken as a normal supplementary?

    • Emmanuel Buysse September 3, 2018 at 6:57 pm

      Hi there Kavitha.
      Well, you can take it anyway, but we suggest you only take it when you’re working out or have a deficit of vitamins.

  • Eric Cantu September 5, 2018 at 6:34 am

    It’s really interesting how this has so many extras that regular supplements don’t. I like that. I hate having to take so many things and this becomes more of a one stop shop. Very well written post.

    • Emmanuel Buysse September 5, 2018 at 6:51 am

      Hi Eric!
      Some supplements are good when you combine it, but it is fair to show all in one products, which can save of money as well.
      Thanks for your positive comment, we do all we can to help people to find the right product!

  • Andy September 6, 2018 at 5:26 pm

    Excellent post!

    Totally agree vitamins and supplements are vitally important most people don’t get anywhere near the daily amount of vitamins and nutrients they need.

    I will take a look at these products, thanks.

    • Emmanuel Buysse September 7, 2018 at 8:12 am

      Hi Andy.
      The problem lies also in the fact that many people eat food that aren’t fresh and instant ready, which of course has the problem of a deficit when it comes to vitamins.
      This product really helps to cover all of them.
      We try out best to inform people that they really need it, for their health and body.

  • Cynthia Coronado September 10, 2018 at 5:12 am

    I love your logo! As for your article, you have a great layout of the information. I gathered a lot from this article. Very in-depth about the product that would absolutely help someone easily choose to buy. Putting comparisons to other products was great also. Thanks for the information.

    • Emmanuel Buysse September 10, 2018 at 5:36 pm

      Hi Cynthia.
      Thanks for your positive comment!
      We try our west to give in-depth reviews about every product, so people know what it is and what they can expect from it.

  • Evelynn September 13, 2018 at 4:59 pm

    Hi, thank you for your informative post. I was just wondering whether this vitamin is more for people who train or can it be used for general well being. It sounds like a great product that I would love to try out.

    • Emmanuel Buysse September 13, 2018 at 8:49 pm

      Hi Evelynn.
      It can be used for the general well being, but I suggest you take it when or you have a deficit on vitamins and/or you’re performing workouts.
      It is a very good product, you will not be disappointed by it.

  • Boryana September 15, 2018 at 10:00 pm

    I’ve been looking for something like this for ages!
    Never know which ones are the good ones – so many different opinions!
    I think that most people forget how important vitamins are for the body, myself included.
    The Animal Pack looks more than promising. With all that detailed information you have provided…
    All my questions have been answered!
    Thanks for sharing this post!

    • Emmanuel Buysse September 16, 2018 at 1:13 pm

      Hi Boryana.
      You have indeed many similar supplements out there, with many reviews ( but also fake ones because they get paid by the brand, which in our case isn’t).
      So our opinion is honest and we try to get in depth-reviews so you know everything.
      Vitamins are very important indeed, many people underestimate it.

  • Nicole September 15, 2018 at 10:20 pm

    Hi Emmanuel,
    Animal Pak seems to have a lot of ingredients and I appreciate you bringing information about the product and comparing it with other products. But I’m wondering why not just take a multivitamin. This seems like overkill and that your body will just waste most of it.

    • Emmanuel Buysse September 16, 2018 at 1:14 pm

      Hi Nicole!
      Yes, you’re right about the fact that many multivitamins cause you to pee it out and it is a waste. We tried this one long enough to know it isn’t like many others ( but we suggest you take it when training, since your body needs more of them).

  • Lara September 17, 2018 at 3:34 am

    Thank you Emmanuel Buysse for such good useful post on here i see it is very important to know such things and effects of vitamins to our bodies .

    • Emmanuel Buysse September 17, 2018 at 8:58 am

      Hi Lara.
      Thanks for your positive comment!
      Many people don’t understand the importance of vitamins, hopefully with this post we can let them understand that fact.

  • Mike September 29, 2018 at 1:35 pm

    Great Review! You go in-depth and help the reader answer most of the questions they could have. I found this very helpful because it is hard to separate the wheat from the chaff. Your review is honest.
    I do not do a lot of heavy lifting. In fact I do a lot more running than lifting. Can I still use this vitamin?


    • Emmanuel Buysse September 30, 2018 at 4:47 pm

      Hi Mike.
      Thanks for the positive comment.
      We try to make sure every review is in our point of view, but is honest, and not what the big brands an their associates say, we let people say what they think about it after trying it and we don’t get paid for anything, we just want to help you to find the good supolement. Now, even when running you’re using muscles, and more than you think, even you’re using your upper muscles, although in a different way. So yes, this vitamin supplement can help you.

  • Stephen Crossley September 29, 2018 at 2:20 pm

    A very informative and in-depth article, It has opened my eyes to a few things. I will be giving this product a trial and see if it works for me.
    Thanks for the info.

    • Emmanuel Buysse September 30, 2018 at 5:33 pm

      Hi Stephen.
      Thanks for the positive feedback, we always try to give an in depth review, this is what we strive for.
      Now, this is a supplement you really need to try, it wont disappoint you.

  • Chizoba Onyekwuluje September 29, 2018 at 4:55 pm

    Hi Emmanuel,
    I know someone that’s into body building, and I know that if I told him about this product, he would be delighted-regardless of the taste. He believes that as long as it’s healthy, he’ll find a way to make it easier for himself. Personally, I’m really impressed with all the vitamins and minerals it contains. You really did an amazing job with this review, because it’s really detailed.

    • Emmanuel Buysse September 30, 2018 at 5:31 pm

      Hi Chizoba.
      Thanks for the positive comment!
      This supplement contains lots of vital vitamins, not only to keep your body healthy, but also to reach new achievements for yourself.

  • Shannah October 27, 2018 at 9:53 am

    Is this product meant for men, women, or either? I ask because some of the other vitamin packs you mention have “men” in the title. Finding a good multi-vitamin is pretty difficult, at least for women. There’s always a tendency to leave something out – but this appears to have pretty much everything. How big are the capsules? That’s usually a factor in whether I take vitamins in pill form, or try to find a powder.

    • Emmanuel Buysse November 2, 2018 at 7:49 am

      Hi Shannah,

      Animal Pak can be taken by both men and women, indeed, the majority of the supplements are for men, but can also be taken by women (only not those with a hormone function).

      The capsules are pretty small, easy to swallow.

  • julienne murekatete October 27, 2018 at 9:58 am

    I found Animal pak very important to building healthy body for people who do sport but our body needs supplements to stay strong and healthy. After reading this post about Animal pak i realised how much it is rich on vitamins and i ask myself if it can’t be useful for children who have problem in growing.Can i recommend it to my friend with a kid of 10 but he looks like 6? Need advice.

    • Emmanuel Buysse November 2, 2018 at 6:58 am

      Hi Julienne,

      It is a multivitamin supplement, but I wouldn’t recommend to use it before 17-18.

      The reason is simple, it is highly concentrated, and ment for people who needs it, if it is with training or other exercises, childs makes a lot of vitamins themselves, and the ones they need, it is best to go to a pharmacy to buy child vitamins (those in bearforms).

  • Taetske October 27, 2018 at 10:04 am

    Good Morning Emmanuel,

    This Animal pack of which you give a really good review seems to be a very complete product. A long list of vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants, and enzymes. I can understand fully it is the right thing to take for sports people, athletes, and people who do exercises.

    I do have a question. I am 68 and work in the garden so to be fair I fall into the category of people doing exercises. One has to be very careful of the foods one eats nowadays as man made foods lack the important nutrients. So I wonder if I should also take Animal pack as an extra boost?

    Regards, Taetske

    • Emmanuel Buysse November 2, 2018 at 5:30 am

      Hi Taetske,

      Animal Pak is a very good supplement, to aid you in exercises and to maintain the health of your body.

      About your question, it is a multivitamin supplement, which means it will do no harm for you, just stay in the recommended dosage tabel, because if you take more, you just pee it out and it is a waste of money.
