    I don't trust it. It is considered to be a carcenogin when absorbed by the body. It could raise health issues in the future. Never trust anything that is genetically modified.

    Yeah, it's a drawback to the NO-Xplode, otherwise one of my favorite products. They'd be better off to use a more natural sweetener like Splenda, and one of the girls at my work told me Stevia is actually the best of all.

    No-Xplode gives me headaches. I have heard it does that to some people and i guess im one of them. Especially if i take the full dose I can get them really bad.

    I emailed BSN's customer service seein why they use it or whateva, didn't really expect an answer etc. but damn I'm impressed with their customer service even if I don't continue to use No-Xplode I'll definitely try the other he mentioned... heres the mail sent...


    *****, I wish there was a better sweetener for NO-Xplode than aspartame, too. You are not alone.



    The issue has to do with taste. No other sweetener or combination of sweeteners out there was able to overcome the 'chemical' taste of the powerful ingredients in NO-Xplode.



    I don't know if you've tried any of the other pre-workout formulas out there, but we get many customers telling us that they taste quite poor --sometimes prohibitively so.



    Please note that there is a great deal of misleading information on the Web about the dangers of aspartame. I've talked to many university research scientists around the globe over the years about this issue. They confirm that the Web-based claims are patently false.



    One of the main concerns expressed on the Web is that aspartame consumption leads to the formation of methanol, a toxic chemical.



    Actually, this is true. Aspartame consists of aspartic acid attached to phenylalanine. Both are naturally-occurring amino acids. Also part of the aspartame molecule is a methyl group. When this breaks off in your gut, it combines with water to form methanol (wood alcohol).



    Guess what? If you eat a healthy diet rich in vegetables and fruits, you get loads of pectin (a type of fiber). Pectin contains methylated carbohydrate molecules. Inside your gut, the pectin methyl groups come off, forming methanol.



    Over millions of years of biological evolution, our bodies have developed the metabolic capacity to handle methanol produced by high-fiber diets. Indeed, fiber from fruits and vegetables is certainly not toxic; only beneficial.



    The amount of methanol produced by aspartame is much smaller than what you get from healthy consumption of fruits and veggies.



    Something to think about.



    Rest assured, *****, we are always looking into new and better sweetening agents. Some time down the road, we may well have an aspartame-free NO-Xplode. Though we're confident it is safe, we do have to contend with the concerns spark by the aforementioned Web site 'scares'.



    Also note that our forthcoming energy drink, Endorush, does not contain aspartame.



    Thanks again for writing us, *****. I hope I've been of some help.



    Feel free to contact me whenever you have comments about BSN products, ads, or the like.

    What about formol ? formic acid (sp?) ?
    All by-products of aspartame decomposition...

    Are they safe also ?

    Everything I use is very basic. whey vitamins creatine and glutamine. I was hoping NO Explode could hep but it sounds a little dangerous at best are there any suggestions on what I should look into taking?

    I'm pretty sure that the last time I took NO Explode it said it was "Aspartame Free". You might want to check out a container for yourself. I'm fairly certain but not 100%.

    NO Xplode is awesome! I've been using it for years and I highly recommend it. Don't believe everything you read (except this:wink: )

    Very safe and very effective for firing up your workouts.
