BSN N.O Xplode XE Edge Pros & Effectiveness

For all BSN lovers, BSN have officially launched their newest pre-workout supplement N.O Xplode XE Edge. After extensive research, BSN have included in their supplement a range of botanical nutrients that can help you accelerate your progress in the gym. These nutrients include traditional Chinese plant extracts such as Rhodiola Rosa that have been combined with caffeine, theanine and a citrulline blend to help support energy levels for longer lasting work outs at the gym.

Compared to their hugely popular pre-workout N.O Xplode, N.O Xplode XE Edge is more focused on supporting energy levels, concentration and minimising both physical and mental stress during high intensity workouts. Xplode XE Edge also contains a higher concentration of stimulants including caffeine and theanine to get you pumped and ready to perform. One of the special features of XE Edge is its range of nootropic (cognitive/brain support) ingredients with other ingredients like n-acetyl cysteine to keep focussed and assist with physical stress and strain after your workouts. More importantly, it can help minimise fatigue development. 

BSN N.O Xplode XE Edge Cons

If you’re after a pre-workout that helps support pump, then the N.O Xplode XE Edge is probably not the supplement for you. While it does well boosting most other facets of your workouts; you’ll find a fairly minimal increase in the pump you may already be getting from training.

BSN N.O Xplode XE Edge Flavours, Taste & Mixability

Xplode XE Edge is available in five different flavours. These including Blue Raspberry, Cherry Lime, Fruit Punch, Green Apple and Tropical Burst. The mixability is great, however some of the flavours may be on the sweeter side. If so, adding an extra amount of water is highly recommended.  

BSN N.O Xplode XE Edge Verdict

The overall supplement N.O Xplode XE Edge is a high stim formulation that is ideal for those wanting an extra ‘edge’ during your workout. If you find that your heart isn’t really into it, Xplode XE Edge can help you keep on track and focus more on training. Although it’s not the best pre workout for pump purposes, it does a decent job at minimising fatigue and provides super intense energy prior to your workout.
