BSN No-Xplode flavours
This all American classic is a clear favourite here in Australia too. If you are a fan of blue slushies then this flavour will no doubt please your taste buds. Sweet, but not overly sweet, blue raspberry is easy to drink right before your session.
BSN hit the grape flavour on the dot with No-Xplode. The single flavour profile is incredibly popular and more-so for those with a decent sweet tooth.
If you want something a little more subtle in the flavour department then watermelon is a good choice. Just the right amount of flavour with a sweetness that is not overpowering, watermelon is a safe option for most.
Key BSN No-Xplode Ingredients
Creatine Blend (Creatine Monohydrate, Creatine Anhydrous)
Creatine is highly beneficial for the production of ATP and is very well known for it’s ability to enhance strength and power output during high intensity exercise. Creatine also aids in the development of lean muscle mass resulting in significant training adaptations.
Taurine acts as an osmolyte and helps to shuttle water in the cells of the body. As a supplement it is highly beneficial for mental cognition and focus and also has shown to enhance endurance.
AstraGin® is a patented natural compound that significantly increases the absorption of vital nutrients and compounds. BSN have been intelligent and have included Astragin to increase the effectiveness of the formula.
The role of Beta-alanine is predominantly as a lactic acid buffer. When we perform exercise, lactic acid accumulates in the muscles and reduces athletic performance and increases muscular fatigue. Beta-alanine works to decrease the accumulation of lactic acid and mitigates the effects on performance.
Betaine seems to be a popular ingredient in most pre workout products. It is a key compound that improves hydration, stimulates water-based pumps, increases power and supports muscle protein synthesis.
Citrulline Malate has a positive effect on increasing the nitric oxide levels in the blood. By increasing the blood flow and improving oxygen delivery to the muscles it aids in strength and endurance performance adaptations.
Tyrosine is important in the production of the catecholamines: dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine. It helps the body to build proteins and produce enzymes and thyroid hormones. L-Tyrosine and caffeine work cohesively to increase the amount of catecholamines being released by the cells.
Caffeine is a very well known ingredient in many stimulant pre workouts. Caffeine Anhydrous has a number of performance enhancing benefits such as increasing energy levels and motivation, increasing strength and overall performance. When it comes to fat loss, caffeine also facilitates the oxidation of fatty acids to be used as the main source of energy.
DL-Phenylalanine is predominantly included in pre-workout supplements due to it being a precursor to tyrosine. Tyrosine is a precursor to thyroid hormones which play a role in metabolism and weight management. Together with its role in fat metabolising, it also mood-enhancing effects.
Huperzine A – Toothed Clubmoss Extract
Huperzine A acts as an AChE inhibitor which translates to improved neurotransmission and improvements in both cognitive and muscular performance.
Pyridoxine HCL plays a part in numerous reaction in the body incusing fatty acid metabolism and the generation of glucose during exercise.
