Alright, here's the deal. I have to admit when I first saw the ads for Xyience (the really old, crappy ones; not these new Spike TV ones), I was mildly interested. I started seeing more of it as I continued watching UFC. But I see Sherdoggers say time and time again that it's absolute crap. I want to start a thread that rates, reviews, and gives opinions on each separate Xyience product. Plus, there are some things about the products I really want to know. I'll continue to update the thread, but PLEASE contribute, because I really would like to hear more about these supplements. NOX-CG3 Here's the one Xyience is constantly advertising. It's a weird name, and it gives promises of increasing your "pump." I am really interested in this product. After wrestling starts, I'm starting a 16 week strength and mass cycle, so I can get my skinny ass stronger. I make whey protein a staple of my diet, but I was looking into creatine. NOX-CG3 has 3 easily absorbed creatines in it. Hence the "C" in "CG3" BUT, I was looking around on Bodybuilding.com, and lots of lifters also recommend taking a form of L-Glutamine. NOX-CG3 also has 3 forms of Glutamine in it; hence the "G" in "CG3." So already, we have a combination of L-Glutamine and Creatine. Many lifters also recommend taking a form of Nitric Oxide boosters, such as NO-Xplode. NOX-CG3 has 3 Nitric Oxide Boosters. So what we have is a combination of 3 highly recommended supplements, in 3 different forms, all in one supplement. Am I missing something here? This sounds pretty convenient, and a lot less time and money consuming than buying 3 different creatines, 3 different glutamines, and 3 different nitric oxide boosters. Has anyone actually tried NOX-CG3 before bashing it? I have a friend who has gotten excellent results from using creatine, L-Glutamine, and NO-Xplode. This seems to have basically all of that in it. X-Treme Carb/Fat Blocker Now this one sounds like a total load of B.S. It claims to block up to 1600 calories from sugars, starches, and fats, using the mysterious "northern white kidney bean." I pretty much waved this one off, but to be sure, I figured I'd run a search on what they were putting in this stuff. Here's what surprised me: they actually might be holding some truth in that promise. Northern White Kidney Bean, according to Xyience, has an "anti-alpha amylase metabolite" in it that supposedly blocks carbs and fats. I ran a search on "anti-alpha amylase" and found this: Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=PubMed&list_uids=6335948&dopt=Abstract The effect of dietary anti-alpha-amylase on some aspects of lipid metabolism has been studied after having shown that rats fed proteins from legumes containing anti-alpha-amylase (to cover one-third of the protein quota in the diet) failed to absorb carbohydrates contained in starch to the point that the total caloric intake was sharply reduced and their growth stunted. Upon feeding rats anti-alpha-amylase, destruction of fatty deposits was observed. Anti-alpha amylase apparently does have an effect. I would really like to test this product and see if it works at all. Even if it only blocked 400 calories, I would seriously not mind using that on a cheat day. Alright guys, I gotta go train for now. But I'll be back to write more. In the meantime, please write a review for any Xyience product you've tested, or anything you've heard about it. Any real information is greatly appreciated.
