When a supplement in its chosen category wins creatine product of the year for 5 years running, you know they possess a winning formula. BSN has done just that with its Cellmass and it continues to be as popular as ever, taking the fitness industry by storm over and over again. With this supplement, BSN promise size, hardness and strength like no other and quite simply, they are spot on! The additional benefit which purchasing a product from BSN, incredible supplement giants, is that not only have they created an awesome creatine, but their whole range of supplements are consistently good – so you know exactly what you are getting.
BSN use the descriptive phase ‘post workout and night time mass, recovery and performance activator’ to promote their Cellmass product. These 3 processes are brought about by a truly unique combination of amino acids, minerals and electrolytes that are quickly consumed by the body and rapidly absorbed to refuel the target muscle cells, replenish and maximise ATP stores and saturate the target muscles. Quite simply, everything you could ever want in a creatine has been targeted and achieved in this single product.
With numerous top brands competing for the number one spot, the question with all products deemed the best is what separates them from their competitors? With BSN Cellmass a proprietary blend of 4 advanced creatine formulas is a great starting point, with each and every one playing a crucial role in the supplement’s success. Not only does this formula increase creatine transport, uptake and effectiveness but it also enhances muscle recovery and the buffering of hydrogen ions.
Let’s take a look at these 4 creatines a little closer:
Completing the makeup of BSN’s Cellmass is Glutamine AKG, a further anti catabolic amino acid, Cinnulin-PF, an aqueous extract assisting in the maintenance of blood glucose and fat levels and numerous phosphate formulas, aimed at maximising strength and endurance, whilst at the same time regulating key levels of calcium, potassium and sodium.
Creatine has the ability to directly impact the ATP cycle, as briefly mentioned earlier, which ultimately affects energy levels and time to fatigue. Creatine is produced naturally by the body and stored within the muscle cells. Here, creatine binds with phosphate to create a substance known as creatine phosphate. Creatine phosphate is maintained in this current state until required by the human body during bouts of exertion.
During exercise in which explosive energy bursts are required, such as weight lifting, the primary fuel utilised to provide this energy source is obtained from ATP. ATP is quickly broken down and the energy released as a by-product from this breakdown is directly supplied to the target muscles. The stores of ATP are not infinite and will only allow the body to be powered this way for approximately 5-10 seconds, until all stores have been depleted.
This is where creatine supplements produce their effects on the body. Broken down ATP is useless to the body and requires reformation before it can be utilised again. Creatine phosphate is responsible for doing just that. It rapidly converts broken down ATP back to its original form so that it can again be broken down and the energy released used to further fuel the working muscles.
The levels of creatine determine how rapidly ATP can be made available. Therefore, if a creatine supplement is taken it ultimately boosts the creatine phosphate levels, allowing a greater potential energy supply for muscular contractions. This is why supplements such as Cellmass are imperative if you are serious about your training. As well as replenishing ATP stores, it also reduces any muscular breakdown effects.
Normally when a product only offers 3 flavours it can be considered limited in its ability to please a larger market. However, with artic berry blast, fruit punch and grape cooler BSN have simply gone for quality over quantity. Even if you’re not a fan of one of the flavours, I guarantee you will love the other two!
