BSN NO Xplode Review
Author: Dominick Walsh of
This week I'll be reviewing a well known
supplement, BSN's NO Xplode. If you haven't heard of this product then
you probably don't get out from under the rock you live under too often. BSN has done an excellent job marketing this
and all their products, I mean, who hasn't tried NO Xplode? At first glance this pre-workout powder contains all the
ingredients that makes up most strength building, pump enhancing, energy
producing powders. BSN uses a couple
different kinds of creatine with creatine ethyl ester being the main
source. Ethyl ester creatines are
supposed to reduce water retention with an increased absorbability and work
well with some people but in my experience its kind of been hit and miss. In addition to a healthy dose of caffeine,
NO Xplode uses various amino acids such as L-tyrosine and taurine to enhance
energy levels. This is what the user
"feels" when he takes this product.
Although caffeine and other various stimulants are great for a kick in
the ass before the gym it doesn't necesserily translate to size or strength
gains. In fact studies show that high
doses of stimulants can actually release cortisol into the bloodstream. Cortisol is a stress hormone and is
catabolic in nature which can hault muscle growth. The nitric oxide component of NO Xplode is quite interesting. In addition to a few oddball, unstudied
compounds, BSN uses L-arginine AKG and two types of citrulline to increase the
pump effect of working out. Nitric
oxide is sythesized from these compounds.
This combination works well if dosed correctly. Thats where this formula gets a little
hazey. The extensive list of
ingredients is labeled as a total of about 18 grams in a proprietary
blend. There are about 30 ingredients
in NO Xplode which begs the question
"Is anything in the right dosing?" and "Are these exotic
compounds even proven?" It's tough
to tell. I do believe that this product
will give you energy due to the stimulant content and it will pump you up but I
think its more from the massive amounts of sodium they add to the powder (bloat
pump). NO Xplode wouldn't be my first choice
for a pre-workout powder but it definately deserves a fair chance.
