Q.7 My Cellucor C4 Ripped has formed clumps. Can I still use it? Will it be effective?
It may clump due to the HYGROSCOPIC EFFECT. Pre-Workout boosters contain ingredients which are hygroscopic in nature. This means that they absorb moisture at a higher rate. This may result in your pre-workout clumping or hardening into blocks. This is normal behaviour of these ingredients and DOES NOT MEAN THAT THERE IS ANYTHING WRONG WITH THE PRODUCT and does not affect the efficacy of the product. Simply break up the clumps and use as normal. To slow down the hygroscopic effect, always store your pre-workout in a cool dry place and away from moisture (not in the fridge).NEVER place a wet spoon inside your pre-workout container.
