ANSI Xtreme Shock Review
Athletes have a slew of pre-workout supplement choices and they come in all shapes and sizes. There are powders, pills, capsules and sports drinks. Advance Nutrient Science International (ANSI) has just launched Xtreme Shock, which comes in a powder form or an energy drink depending on your preference.
ANSI claims that Xtreme Shock will work provide instant energy in 15 minutes, allow for overall strength gains and guard against Lactic Acid build up. Xtreme Shock is low in carbs and is sugar free. How does this product hold up against the competition? We’ll find out and report back.
Xtreme Shock is the combination of a proprietary blend, however the main ingredient in this supplement is the non-essentail amino acid Beta Alanine, which boosts carnosine levels in the body. Carnosine is a naturally occurring di-peptide found in muscle fiber which aids in stabilizing muscle pH by swallowing up excess hydrogen ions released during a high intensity workout. This science allows the body to maintain an optimal pH balance which wards off lactic acid and muscle soreness.
Xtreme schock’s proprietary blend also contains Arginine, L-Tyrosine, Aminoglycine and Glutamine.
Arginine is an essential amino acid which relaxes blood vessels, promotes healthy blood flow, and contributes to muscle growth with protein synthesizing capabilities.
L-Tyrosine is another amino acid which is converted to dopamine and norepinephrine, aiding mental alertness and happiness.
Aminoglycine is an amino acid which helps regulate blood sugar and aid in Nitric Oxide production.
Glutamine is another essential amino acid which is a building block of protein synthesis, transports nitrates between organs and acts as a source of fuel.
Xtreme Shock also contains several forms of the key minerals Potassium and Sodium. Potassium assists the heart, kidneys and other organs while Sodium is key to stimulating muscle contractions and assists against dehydration.
The energy drink gives you 40 mg of Niacin which is involved in 60 metabolic processes related to producing energy.
Each version of Xtreme Shock contains Caffeine, although with the proprietary blend, we don’t know how much is in each serving.
Reviews of Xtreme Shock were not super complementary on the taste of the product, however many athletes gave it a thumbs up and noted that it lived up to ANSI’s claim that it would provide a powerful punch without a “crash” afterwards.
The makers of Xtreme Shock claim that it is tested by professional athletes. It does seem to steer clear of more harmful stimulants and is available both in a powder form as well as sports drink.
This product can cause a tingling sensation that may be common with Beta Alanine. It’s also a bit concerning that while ANSI discloses the exact ingredients in the proprietary blend, it does not give dosages of each one.
We like that both the powder and sports drink are free of the high sugar content that prevalent in many sports drinks in particular.
Xtreme Shock definitely seems to have the ingredients which would aid in sustained energy and prevent lactic acid build up. Most reviews came in at 9 or 10 stars and many commented on the strength boost that they received.
Pricing for the sports drink is a bit on the higher side at $25, but the powder (which retails for $54.99) can be found online at the sale price of $32.99 for 45 servings.
