BSN or Bio-Engineered Supplements and Nutrition has long been a prominent player in the supplement industry ever since its inception almost a decade ago. Made popular by their striking red packaging and their flagship products such as NO Xplode, True Mass, and Syntha-6 protein among others, BSN have always maintained its image as an innovative company. One of their latest releases in 2013 will be Glycolast.
BSN Glycolast Ingredients & Dosage
Without knowing any details of Glycolast, we can only infer that it will be an intra-workout or post-workout recovery supplement designed for those whose workouts are more metabolically taxing and work the cardiorespiratory system more. In other words, more endurance based resistance training, high volume training or crossfit style training; of which BSN have close ties with.
Potential ingredients or blends would probably include:
- Carbohydrate Blend – Most likely with glucose, waxy maize, maltodextrin and perhaps some other sources.
- Insulinotropic Blend – Range of ingredients to help support insulin action, which may include cinnamon, banaba, fenugreek and alpha lipoic acid to name a few.
- Recovery Blend – This blend could have a diverse range of ingredients including branched chain amino acids and a range of natural antioxidants.
BSN Glycolast Pros & Effectiveness
The release of Glycolast is a forward thinking, strategic move from BSN. Knowing the rising disciplines of Crossfit and the growth of weekend exercise warriors and those who train for ‘fun’ in obstacle based events, Glycolast is a perfect supplement for these groups. However, it will still be beneficial for any trainer looking at recovery and maximising protein delivery.
BSN Glycolast Cons
BSN has been slow as of late in releasing really innovative products. They’re reformulations of old products have also had a fairly lukewarm response, so hopefully Glycolast isn’t just another rip off from Gaspari Nutrition’s latest slew of products such as AminoLast and GlycoFuse.
BSN Glycolast Taste & Mixability
BSN have always excelled in their flavouring and there’s really no way you can make a carbohydrate based product taste bad. With those two factors in mind, Glycolast should be a tasty and well mixing addition to BSN’s range of products.
BSN Glycolast Verdict
BSN have long been at the forefront of the supplement industry and still have a solid reputation within users old and new. If Glycolast is able to push some boundaries with its ingredients over that of a carbohydrate supplement and be marketed adequately to the right people, it will be creating a whole new set of avid followers.
