Okay, here’s a quick one that I HAD to put on the site… another supplement by BSN.
I saw these as I was shopping at the local grocery store. I was in the Health section looking at Essie products… (don’t ask. What I do outside the blog is my business…you can’t prove anything!!!!)
Ok, mental breakdown aside, as I looked across the Beauty section, I noticed the BSN Emblem on a product. I had to pick it up.
Ain’t this a beauty?
I wasn’t sure what it was, but a quick perusal of the label, I knew it was an energy type of supplement. Because I am random in that way, instead of trying one, I grabbed 3 and threw them in my cart. I couldn’t wait to try these.
A quick look on the website reveals:
As part of our ongoing effort to give customers what they want, BSN® has taken another classic and revamped it to fit consumers’ current needs – introducing the all-new reformulated ENDORUSH® XTREME STRENGTH! BSN®’s ultra-premium ready-to-drink energy and performance supplement has been slimmed down and amped up to deliver an intensely gratifying experience, supporting energy, focus, endurance and overall performance with a crisp, refreshing taste that won’t leave users loaded up with unnecessary amounts of sugar or excessive amounts of liquid.
Delivering the same unbeatable energy and performance consumers have come to expect in half the volume, the new 8-oz ENDORUSH® XTREME STRENGTH is perfect for any high-intensity athletic activity, hectic workday, or anytime a quick and convenient pick-me-up is needed.
The “hectic” workday is the part that seemed most attractive to me.
I decided to use these sparingly. My first use? This week. I had pulled several all nighters and had got myself into a situation where I was running off of 3 hours of sleep in 2 nights. In other words: my normal Tuesday in grad school. On Wednesday, I was fading. Not even my favorite hero could save me!
Wednesdays are rough for me. I was fading, but needed to be up for a few more hours still. That’s when I ingested this bad boy.
WHAT. A. RIDE.
First and foremost, I don’t care what anyone tells you from this point forward. When you ingest one of these, ONLY ever take half a bottle. This stuff is powerful. Maybe even too powerful.
This drink is strong enough to the point that I can never justify buying Monster, Red Bull or any other drink (outside of Wild Cherry, Pepsi…I know you’re reading this, baby!!!) ever again.
First, and foremost, the taste is fantastic. And that’s coming from a guy that dislikes fruit punch flavored supplements. This was awesome!!
Within 20 minutes of ingesting, I went from almost passing out to wanting to party. Within 6 hours, I cured cancer, learned how to speak to Dolphins, traveled to Japan and back without the use of air travel, and determined that PI is actually in incorrect calculation (I’m not telling you any secrets!!)
The Beta Alanine in this product is strong without being distracting. That’s amazing to me. I had sworn the stuff off but those tingles were all too familiar. Yet, I felt energized. Like someone switched my body to “ON” as opposed to feeling like ants were crawling all over me. I don’t know how BSN did that. It’s rather impressive, to be honest.
This stuff had me wired more than I have ever felt really. When they say, this stuff gives you energy, that’s just what they mean. You could really use this stuff as a Pre Workout, to be honest. This stuff is powerful to the point that you could easily burn out your adrenal glands so go EASY on this. Wow.
Also, pay attention to the label. This stuff has two servings in it. Not one. I didn’t pay attention and took a whole bottle.
I finally got to sleep about 3 weeks later.
You can use this product for working out, but I like their other products for that. This is the kind of stuff you ingest if you’re driving across country, but MUST drive another 8 hours before you can stop. It’s the kind of stuff you buy if you have finals week. It’s for emergencies only where your body has failed and your willpower is next; this stuff gets you through.
I recommend this stuff. You can get it about $3.00 at your local grocery store. But really, just be careful with how much you drink at one time. After having this, I can say spending money on any other energy drink is a total waste of cash.
This stuff should only come with a prescription!
