MusclePharm Arnold Series Iron Dream Pros & Effectiveness
There’s no doubt that MusclePharm’s Bullet Proof is a fantastic formula and improving upon that with a range of extras as is the case for Iron Dream makes the supplement even better. The current American version currently contains two ingredients not allowed in Australia including 5 HTP and Melatonin, so the supplement will definitely need some reformulating before hitting the Australian Market.
Discounting those ingredients, MusclePharm Arnold Series Iron Dream contains a solid range of ingredients. Glutamine and branched chain amino acids are vital in supporting recovery, immune health and muscle protein synthesis after exercise training. Horny Goat Weed and Fenugreek both have studies displaying its potential to support improved testosterone levels with Fenugreek able to reduce the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT). The remaining sleep support ingredients; L-Glycine, GABA and Mucuna Pruriens are helpful in supporting calmness and improved moods with decreased anxiety – all beneficial for sleep inducement.
MusclePharm Arnold Series Iron Dream Cons
Iron Dream will most likely be reformulated with the removal of Melatonin and 5 HTP and possibly even Mucuna Pruriens. This would render the supplement slightly less effective, but the obvious addition of phenibut will make this change less noticeable. The only other issue with Iron Dream is the size of the dose. With the proprietary blend at only 3.5g and over 10 active ingredients, there just doesn’t seem to be enough of some of the core ingredients.
MusclePharm Arnold Series Iron Dream Taste & Mixability
MusclePharm Arnold Series Iron Dream is available in two flavours; Fruit Punch and Grape. Similar to Bulletproof, the supplement mixes well and has a refreshing taste which can be quite sweet, however not unpleasant.
MusclePharm Arnold Series Iron Dream Verdict
The Arnold Series Iron Dream is like a concentrated cousin of MusclePharm’s Bullet Proof with a few added extras. Although the supplement will be reformulated, the core of the effective active ingredients will be available. It’s a good suggestion to up the dose for Iron Dream as the recommended serving size might not contain therapeutic doses of many of the ingredients. Overall however, Iron Dream offers a slew of well studied ingredients to support sleep and recovery and no doubt, you’ll be getting back into the gym quicker with it than without it.
