Final Review!Effect On Training
Honestly this has to be the most noticeably effective creatine product I have taken. During training I noticed increased strength, solid pumps, better endurance, and a harder/tighter appearance. Aside from one or two workouts I did not notice any stomach discomfort during my sessions nor did I experience any dehydration. One of my favorite benefits that I received from this product is that my blood sugars stayed stable during my sessions despite a big shake with simple carbs right before the session.Effects Outside of Training
I lost a little bit of weight, about 5 pounds, since starting the log without manipulating my overall calorie consumption. Also I noticed that my appetite did not elevate at all throughout the day, which is something I get from other products similar to Neovar. Overall my pants are a little loose, but my shirts are a little tighter. Comparison To Other Products
One thing I did notice though is that I would get noticeably lethargic after my workouts and often felt the need for a nap. I suspect the large influx of carbohydrates was triggering serotonin production giving me the more relaxed feeling. The reason I say this is because I did not receive the hypoglycemic effects that a large amount of carbs would you give me after about 30 minutes.
I am going to list the product and then follow it with either a '+' for Better, a '-' for worse, and a '?' to hard to compare/judge.Overall
Creatine Monohydrate - (Cant Compare to Neovar)
Yellow Gold + Creatine - (Easier dosing and less effect on appetite with Neovar)
Original Neovar - (The original gave me a good amount of GI issues and did not seem to delivery as strong of a pump)
Anabolic Pump ? (Very different effect on appetite. Anabolic Pump gives me a stronger pump sometimes but is very inconsistent for me. Would make a killer stack though)
Pslin ? ( Neovar handles simple carbs better and is easier to time out, Pslin handles complex carbs better and is only dosed once. Effects were very similar between the two products, just the carb types and needs were different.)
ALA + Creatine - ( ALA just made me go hypoglycemic to easily at the doses found in Nutraplanets bulk pills )
I have said it before and I will say it again, you can't go wrong with Applied Nutriceuticals. They have great products at great prices. I definitely plan on using Neovar again in the future because for the price it just can't be beat. Also I feel that it is a much easier nutrient partitioner for the body to handle, which makes it a great solution for those people who have had to many issues with some of the other products listed above.
