BSN® came up with yet another highly concentrated pre-workout energy booster that is supposed to provide high intensity, endurance, focus and mental alertness to the athletes. It also has fat burning capacity, making it a supplement that can help with weight loss.
How does Hyper FX Work?
Hyper FX is an effervescent concentrated fruit flavored drink that contains a number of ingredients combined in a proprietary mix. Listed are just some of the more important components:
Beta-alanine boosts synthesis of amino acid carnosine, which is responsible for muscle endurance, strength, muscle mass and prolonged energy.
Taurine is an amino acid that helps regulate the level of salt and water in the blood and has antioxidant properties. Combined with caffeine, it is supposed to boost mental performance and focus, but the findings are controversial.
Adenosine is a nucleotide that plays role in tissue repair and reconstruction and plays an important role in energy transfer.
Choline Bitartrate increases acetylcholine neurotransmitter levels and as such improves mental focus and alertness.
Caffeine is commonly present in all energy supplements as an energy booster.
Bitter Orange Extract is stimulant and appetite suppressant. Its active ingredient synephrine is chemically similar to ephedrine, which is illegal, can cause heart arrhythmias and has been known to cause heart attack in healthy young men.
Toothed (Chinese) club moss, or its active ingredient huperzine, is used for treating memory problems and Alzheimer’s disease. As a supplement it is used to prevent swelling, fever and as a diuretic.
Lesser Periwinkle is used for better blood circulation, especially of the brain. It enhances metabolism in the brain and helps in treatment of cardiovascular diseases. This plant contains more than 50 active alkaloids with different effects.
Does Hyper FX Deliver?
This supplement is still very new and there are not too many people who tried and reviewed it, but those who did had positive experience, showing quick energy surge and great focus.
How Much Weight Will I Lose?
Several ingredients in this supplement act as appetite suppressant and metabolism boosters, so the potential for the weight loss is there. There is not enough experience with it to know just how much weight one can expect to lose.
While no negative side effects have been reported, several ingredients have potential for causing serious health problems, especially synephrine, an active ingredient in bitter orange concentrate. It is always a good idea to consult a physician before starting with a new supplement. Show your doctor the ingredients and he will tell you if some of them might be counteindicative for your health condition.
