Hyper FX Review
Although it might sound juvenile, no one can deny that one of the benefits of having a good pre-workout supplement is that you don’t have to get bored with plain water.
That’s why when we saw that BSN’s newest product was an effervescent pre-workout supplement we were intrigued by the fizz if nothing else. But because BSN is pretty consistent about creating quality products, we decided to take a closer look at this pre-workout supplement to see what it was capable of.
Hyper FX not only promises to be an exciting pre-workout supplement, but it also claims to be able to increase your energy and endurance levels so that you can workout at a higher intensity for longer periods of time.
Hyper FX also promises to be able to help your body break down fat stores so that you can have less adipose tissue that takes away from the tone and definition of your muscles. Hyper FX plans to do all of this through the main ingredient of CarnoSyn.
Even though the ingredient CarnoSyn is clearly an original name for an ingredient, it is far from cryptic. With just a little research we found that CarnoSyn is the same thing as the amino acid Beta-Alanine.
Although many people are familiar with the name Beta-Alanine, as it is commonly used in many pre-workout supplements, few people are as aware that it is not, in fact, used for the biosynthesis of any proteins or enzymes.
Instead, it is metabolized into acetic acid, the same acid that is the byproduct of rotting fruit, once Beta-Alanine reaches the digestive system. Unfortunately, many people think this amino acid will help them produce more muscle tissue, but that is simply not the case.
Even though the main ingredient of Hyper FX is something of a disappointment, we still found some ingredients like the minerals Niacin, Calcium, Potassium and Magnesium that showed some potential.
These minerals, common though they are, have been found to contribute to better bone health and even can prevent overuse injuries in some cases.
We also saw the peptide BioPerine in Hyper FX’s formula. This is promising because BioPerine can help increase the body’s ability to absorb ingredients, thereby increasing the efficacy of the rest of Hyper FX’s formula.
Despite the fact that Hyper FX wasn’t as promising as we thought it would be, we think that this product is a nice, medium-grade pre-workout supplement.
