NutraBio Intra Blast
When can you start recovering? That is the question that needs to be asked. And with NutraBio’s Intra Blast you can start recovering before you’ve even finished your workout!
So, what is Intra Blast… As you can see from the supplement facts (below), it’s a combination of essential amino acids, branch chain amino acids, L-glutamine, a performance strength matrix, and electrolytes.
The amino acids are critical for repairing muscle tissue.
L-glutamine has been shown to increase growth hormone production and speed muscle recovery.
Betaine anhydrous has been shown in some studies to possibly improve exercise performance, and strength in men who are already working out.
OKG is possible effective for wound healing, which could help in repairing muscle from hard workouts.
Electrolytes will help to balance your bodies fluids to keep you properly hydrated while training.
When I first looked at the ingredients of Intra Blast I was pretty excited. In the past I’ve had great results from taking amino acids and glutamine. Both have helped me to recover faster, and feel less sore after workouts. I had also used electrolytes during my ultra endurance training with great results. It’s hard to explain, but my muscles just felt better when taking them.
I really like taking intra workout supplements during my long (2 hour + ) CrossFit workouts. It just makes sense to be sipping on something during training sessions that last that long.
The first time I took the Intra Blast I was literally BLASTED with the strong flavor. It was way too much for me. I had to make sure to have a least 20 ounce of water with one scoop to make it drinkable. If you’ve read any of my reviews before you know that I’m a fan of products that work, and they don’t have to taste good.
If you like strong tasting beverages you’ll love the Passion Fruit Intra Blast.
Fortunately NutraBio sent me a few different flavors to try, and the Orange Mango was GREAT!
How does it work
I always like to preface that getting gains in the gym has to do with a whole slew of different things, including diet, sleep, programming, and relaxing. Supplement do help, and I try to do my best to identify the small differences that I feel when taking new supplements.
What I felt with Intra Blast was a more recovered and less sore body. I was taking it 1 to 2 times a day, and barely feeling sore at all after even my toughest workouts.
Then once I stopped taking it I was noticeably more sore. In fact, as I write this I’m sitting here feeling sore from a workout that I did 3 days ago. That just didn’t happen when I was taking the supplement.
So, does it work… It did for me. I really like taking glutamine products and the 5 grams of glutamine in every serving is awesome!
Would I use Intra Blast again… Yes I would. I really wish they would offer a version that didn’t use Sucralose (the artificial sweetener) because we don’t know the long term effects of it. But all in all, it’s a good supplement. Try the orange mango flavor.
