Introduction

I picked this one up on a BOGO deal along with some other Muscle tech products. Recently tried some of the other products, and to say that I'm not a big fan is one big understatement. I posted a review on their all in one multi vitamin, which I believe is a waste of money to be fair. The only supplement I enjoy from Muscletech is Creactor.
I read a discussion on the Troops where some people talked about some sort of brand identification; if you like a product from one brand (for instance Optimum, Nutrabio), other products from the same company are more likely to be positively reviewed. This works the other way around. It's hard to be open minded with other products from a brand which you are not a big fan of. I tried to be open minded, and to be fair Cell tech was not that bad.
I was looking for decent post workout and snatched this one up on a BOGO deal. I don't mind paying for a quality product, but every now and then I do try out some different ones. This one caught my attention because its a mix of different ingredients I normally use combined in one product.

Ingredient Profile

There is a lot going on in Cell Tech hyperbuild.
There is 5 grams of creatine (4 mono hydrate and 1 HCI)
4 grams of Leucine, L-Valine 1g, L-Isoleucine 1g, (BCAA's in a 4:1:1 ratio)
L-Glutamine 1g, 480g tart cherry
1g of taurine and some added electrolytes.

Cell tech is currently catagorized as a creatine blend product at SR. I personally thinks it's more a post workout / recovery product, but the ingredient profile is kind of confusing. There is a blend of creatines, 5 grams of creatine is a sufficient amount in my opinion. The amount of BCAA's seems quite allright and sufficient with the often used 4:1:1 ratio. I am always somewhat unsure on L-glutamine. I don't normally use stand alone supplements containing L-glutamine, since the research/evidence I found does not provides evidence of muscle building capabilities in healthy individuals. Most research does provide some evidence on intestinal and immune system health. From reading on SR, I understand opinions differ on this subject.I am positive on tart cherry, which appears to diminish muscle damage and facilitate recovery. 480mg seems somwewhat underdosed compared to stand alone products. Taurine increases blood flow, which could aid in recovery. Then again taurine is often added to pre-workout products, which altogether made this ingredient profile somewhat confusing.

Taste/Mixability/Dosing

The taste was a bit to sweet for me. I got the blue razz flavour, which tastes like kids lemonade. Dissolves allright, with some foam on top, nothing really big.

Value

I believe the value is the main focal point for this product. On a BOGO deal it comes down to 60 cents a serving which is really cheap considering the various ingredients. But how should value be rated? The product itself is not expensive, especially since most Muscletech products are on a permanent BOGO deal and the ingredients are numerous. If rightly dosed, Cell tech could replace different kinds of supplements normally bought separate and provide a good value. If underdosed, you are basically buying a whole lot of nothing. The same goes for poor quality products, which is my biggest concern with Muscletech products. Recent experiences with their products made me question the quality of the ingredients they use, as they underperform most competitors supplements on effectiveness in my opinion. If not on a BOGO deal you should stay clear of this one, its just not worth it.

Side Effects

None whatsoever.

Effectiveness

On effectiveness, Cell Tech wasn't as disappointing as I imagined or was afraid of from my experience with Muscletech. A post workout should aid in recovery. Where I perceived some better recovery time I don't believe Cell tech stacks up to other products I tried before. I definitely had -some- less DOMS and noticed some increased fullness of my muscles without any side effects I am a bit prone to (mostly stomach issues). Other products gave better results. Cell tech hyperbuild isn't their worst product, but don't expect too much.

Conclusion

To conclude; Cell Tech Hyperbuild is not that bad when compared to other products from Muscle tech, which i believe to be a company mostly built on marketing, flashy labels and absurd statements. I did not experience : "powerful dramatic cell volumization" or " unprecedented gains". The info even stated that Hyperbuild had been scientifically shown to increase strength with over 40% in 12 weeks. I don't believe anyone is stupid enough to buy into this, but these statements do not score Muscletech any points in my book. I would rate Cell tech hyperbuild as a decent middle of the road product. You definitely can get better, but if your on a budget and scoop this one up on a BOGO deal you'll be allright. Just know what you are paying for and what to expect.

    Good review, however, be sure to use spacing between sections so that the text doesn't look cluttered. Also, spacing within sections such as when discussing ingredients in the ingredient profile section helps as well.

    Yeah, MuscleTech has come out with some really solid products recently. Just shows how ridiculous claims in the past can cause lingering hate for your brand.

    This product doens't look bad actually, and if I wasn't stocked up on creatine, I'd probably pick it up to at least give it a try.
