BSN CELLMASS has been around for a few years now.
I remember taking it when I was just starting out weightlifting, thinking I was going to get hench in four weeks.
It comes in shiny packaging and has exclamation points after every ingredient written on the front, which naturally would have you believe that this product is a load of crap.
So let’s find out if that’s true or not…
BSN CELLMASS 2.0 is a blend of creatine and amino acids, designed to promote muscle recovery and uptake of creatine for increased strength.
You take a little scoop – which is around six grams – post workout, although the tub does recommend you take two servings per day.
A tub with 30 servings will set you back over £30 retail price, which is quite frankly ridiculous considering the ingredients, although I have seen it as cheap as £15 online.
The BSN CELLMASS 2.0 ingredients are pretty much creatine monohydrate, taurine and glutamine, with a few other bits of filler thrown in, classic BSN style.
There’s some amino acids in there, but not enough to even bother mentioning.
What’s most shocking about the ingredients is that there is only 3 grams of creatine and 1 gram of glutamine per serving, a quite frankly pathetic amount.
You really would need about 5 grams of each post workout to make a difference.
But of course I’m an absolute fucking beast so I’d take more like 20 of each.
The flavour I tried was Apple, and it’s actually really delicious like many of BSN’s other products, such as Snytha-6.
It just tastes like sweets.
The colour resembles what I can only describe as Hulk’s piss or radioactive waste.
The texture of CELLMASS is pretty dire – it mixes into basically a foam on top with creatine mono settled at the bottom.
Foamy post-workout drinks are never appetising.
Due to the fact that you have to take this post workout, it just becomes awkward, as you then need to take protein too, but there’s no way I’d mix this with whey protein as it just wouldn’t taste right.
I can honestly say that in terms of results (I used this for a month), I saw absolutely no difference at all.
I even tried doubling up the servings for a few days and it still had no effect.
I’m not saying that creatine mono is going to turn me into some kind of monster, but judging by the claims from BSN you’d think it would.
You could spend the equivalent money on about four times as much creatine mono and glutamine and still have change left over.
So yeah, there’s no value for money here at all.
BSN CELLMASS 2.0 is a completely overpriced supplement with the right ingredients in the wrong doses.
Spend your money on some straight up glutamine and creatine instead.
Have you tried BSN CELLMASS 2.0?
