Finally got my hands on some AfterGlow
(roughly 15 servings). Friend of mine was cycling off creatine and sold it to me for much below market price.
I have run all sorts of recovery
drinks. (Aftershock, Torrent
, 2:1:1). Currently I prefer Aftershock, but wanted to give this a fair shake.
How I ran it: I was skeptical on the ingredients due to only 20g of WPI and 36g of carbs. Ran this along side Gluta-lyn and the standard Kre-Alkalyn
cycle. Also supplemented 10g of additional hydrowhey about 30 minutes after AfterGlow
Effectiveness 10+: Recovery
was amazing. Love the 2:1 ratio. Better than aftershock and 2:1:1. Can't think of a better product. Most notably on Leg split. Soreness is reduced. I think it can be attributed to the 2:1 ratio and a new ingredient that I wasn't too familiar with (phosphatidylserine 800mg). This ingredient is very expensive and reduces cortisol making it anti-catabolic. This had to be the item that makes this product work better than the other recovery
Taste 10+: All I can say is wow. The watermelon flavor is great. I thought tropical typhoon of Aftershock tastes great, well AfterGlow
makes that taste like motor oil.
Value/Price 6: This is the huge and only downfall. Even with the great effectiveness, it can not be justified with the high price tag. Even with the phosphatidylserine in it (which adds about $30 per tub). I hope BioRhythm
has the smarts to drop the price to more reasonable.
Conclusion 8.5: Overall I was really impressed with the results, however the price is a huge hurdle and one that can't be overlooked. My recommendation, if money is no object, check this out. Even if you don't use it as part of your standard cycle. Otherwise, Aftershock is a good alternative that provide close results.
