BSc Body Science is one of Australia’s largest and most trusted exercise nutrition supplement companies. No doubt you have seen their branding in many professional sporting events and teams in the NRL and AFL. Being such a large and well-funded company, it is expected that they are able to produce some of the best and most well-researched supplements available today. BSc Hydroxy Burn Pro Clinical is no exception, is one of the most comprehensive fat loss proteins on sale, and has recently be updated to make it even better.
BSc Hydroxy Burn Pro Clinical is a fat loss protein designed to assist in the burning of body fat to give a leaner and more muscular physique. It can be used as a meal replacement shake or as a post workout protein supplement.
A quick look at BSc Hydroxy Burn Pro Clinical shows that it is a low fat, low carb protein. In each 45 g serve, you get 30 g protein, 2.9 g carbs, and 1.2 g fat. The protein is predominantly a whey protein concentrate, along with Glutamine Peptides, Non-fat Milk Solid, Glycine Max Protein Isolate, and Whey Protein Isolate. This gives Hydroxyburn a stage release digestion profile from fast to slow release, which is good for use as an all-round protein. From here on, things get much more complicated. Read on!
There is no shortage of fat loss proteins on the market, and BSc have worked hard to stand out from the crowd. This is primarily done through their multisystem attack on body fat, made up of 10 different “phases”. What this means is that Hydroxy Burn is an extremely comprehensive product which has a huge number of ingredients to help with fat loss. A popular competitor’s product has 7 individual fat loss ingredients, but on my count, Hydroxy Burn has around 20 different ingredients that may contribute to fat loss.
The 10 phases included in Hydroxy Burn act synergistically to aid in fat loss. These include ingredients to aid in:
Despite the shotgun approach BSc has taken to fat loss, the most important key ingredient, African Mango (which is still not found in many other products) is still included in concentrations which have been suggested by research to be effective (Ngondi et al, 2009). The other key ingredients are also comparible in concentration to other leading brands of fat burner proteins. Another noteworthy ingredient is Solathin, a trademarked name for potato protein extract, which may help to increase satiety and food intake.
Hydroxy Burn is a great tasting and easy mixing protein powder. It mixes up to form a smooth and ungluggy shake. If you are using it as a meal replacement, you can always look forward to a good tasting shake.
The previous version of Hydroxy Burn was surprisingly high in carbs. However BSc has clearly taken on board this criticism and reformulated the product to become something that better aligns with fat loss fiets. So this reviewer is happy to report that the carb content should no longer be off-putting to those who are carb conscious.
One problem with including so many ingredients in a single product means that one or two ingredients do get under represented. For example, the product could contain a little more Forskolin.
BSc Hydroxy Burn Pro Clinical is suitable for both men and women wishing to maintain muscle mass while losing weight.
