Hello everyone. This is my second review on this site and I am reviewing my second Muscle Pharm
product as well. This is the new formula and newly designed label of this product. I took a "stack" after cycling off some other products and decided to give them a try. Just as in the first product I reviewed, I will try to be as thorough as possible.
PROFILE: This is what caught my attention. Not the UFC sponsorship, the numerous reviews, or the athletes that promote this brand. I did read many of the reviews on this site as well as others before making my final decision to try it, but it was secondary to the profile. At first look, the profile looks amazing and one of the best I have seen for a PWO. I was excited to try it for many reasons but especially because of the Con-Cret
it has in it. I had not tried that and read alot of information that is was a great product. I am one who has severe stomach discomfort with any product heavy in creatine monohydrate
. I drink over 100 ounces of water a day so that shouldnt be an issue. So with the profile looking loaded with impressive ingredients, I was looking to my workouts.
TASTE: I stated in a previous review that taste is never a big determining factor to me because I am looking for results. If something tastes bad, like a product I am currently taking I will soon be submitting a review for, I will overlook that if I see realistic gains and claims. This product in the Raspberry Lemonade flavor tasted good, but it was very sweet. That says to me there are too many artificial sweetners or even unrefined sugars in it and that is not what I am looking for in building a great physique. It reminded me alot of the old Cell-Tech
formula back in the early 2000's. Way too sweet and may give unwanted results because of sugar content.
WORKOUTS: The first few days were good. Nice energy. But unfortunately, thats about it. I had stomach discomfort about an hour into my workout and had trouble finishing them after about 5 days. This continued until the end of the tub and didnt get any better. On the ingredients list, it has two types of creatine. Creapure
), and Con-Cret
. As I mentioned above, I dont do well with straight creatine monohydrate
. But I have taken many creatines over 14 years and many had creatine "blends" with creatine mono and I had no stomach issues. With that being said, I thought this product would do well digestion
wise and was looking more at what it would do results wise. However with the severe stomach discomfort I had, it makes me skeptical of exactly how much Con-Cret
they actually put into this product. Especially after speaking to 3 different reps at Muscle Pharm
and each saying "if you have stomach issues, this will be the best creatine you have ever taken." I had faith, but I am not one to be easily sold.
CONCLUSION: This was another giant disappointment from Muscle Pharm
and even more so than Bulletproof. I will not purchase this product again and would not recommend it to anyone. It may work well with others but it didnt with me and I would suggest something else. The price was good as I got a Buy 2 Get 1 free, but the product didnt work so it is of no value to me. Afterall, what are we taking the stuff and going to the gym for anyway?? RESULTS
