I want to give a huge thanks to all the wonderful people at Controlled labs for giving me the opportunity to log the new Blue Sugar GDA. This GDA is very intriguing to me, because of the Ingredients that it has in it.

controlled-labs-blue-sugar-label.jpg


It has Banaba Leaf at 1.5 Grams, very potent ingredient that I have used on it's own and loved it
Berberine at a 500mg dose, I have not used berberine as a standalone but that dose in this formula makes me very curious
Has Agmatine at 250mg and Cinnulin PF at a good Dose of 200mg,
This product makes me excited to see how my body responds to it with all those potent ingredients in one formula.


A little about myself I am currently on a mini diet, to get into a leaner stage for my long "offseason" to put on mass. I will be using the Blue Sugar with my largest carb meal (last meal) as well as using it on my free meals, when I have them. I am not hardcore dieting, just lowering calories and would love to see how this works out in my favor.


Current Weight is around 181-184 depending on the amount of sleep I get. Cardio is light walking or basketball 2x3 times per week. Working out is instinctive at this time as I have some body parts that recover a lot faster than others, so I am just playing it by ear 5x6 times per week

All variables will be consistent, as best as I can during this run. I can split up doses if need be, but I feel it will work best if all 4 caps are taken at once, usually before my last meal, or my pre workout meal on the weekends

Get ready for an intriguing run on this new GDA.

I had a pretty good pump going into this workout. I dosed the Blue Sugar about 1.5 hours before my workout with a meal that consisted of a Chicken Quesadilla, and a donut. Also had some twizzlers too. My blood sugar felt very stable after the meal, not a bad feeling since i have had issues with some preworkout meals making me feel a little funky. This not so much.

I do well with a combo of all macros pre workout. Just depends on how long before I work out I take in my fats

Dosed 4 caps Blue Sugar 1 hour before my workout with 70 carbs from sweet potatoes.

I felt great with the whole workout. I have noticed that the muscle pump is longer lasting when I have a better more complete carb source. No issues so far from using this so that is good.

Used my Blue sugar before my workout with a fat burrito. It felt good, a little too much sodium, but was overall good. No stomach issues, blood sugar was steady, and had a good pump. My legs were pretty swollen and it helped me have a longer workout

One of my favorite meals is a cup of quick oats with a heaping scoop of our Snickerdoodle ProMore and a couple Tbsp of PB. 65 cho, 42 pro, 23 fat for some rock solid energy and utterly delicious.

Blue sugar Dosed 1 hour pre workout
Used cream of rice and some whey as my pre meal. Threw in some blueberries as well. Probably 60 grams of carbs. Felt good. Pump was good as this was a lower carb day for me. Body feels good no digestive issues at all

Just curious, are you doing Blood glucose tests, or just assuming it was steady because you didn't go hypo during the workout? Also are all of your carbs pre workout or do you ever do intra carbs?

Same here, I LOVE OATMEAL, but it also loves me and takes all day to digest. I make a cup of dry oats and I will be full for 6 hours maybe more and have to make myself eat more.

Under the assumption because I didn't go hypo. I used to use intra carbs, but with the way my diet is structured I only have carbs pre workout and on cheat meal days

Oats to me have been digesting real fast so I am lucky on that. I know sweet potatoes keep me full all day so I try to use that sparingly

Overall good workout. Had a great pump, ate a apple Fritter and Cinnamon roll before my workout with the blue sugar, and man was that great.

Back was pumped as all can be and had great digestion from it. Muscles felt real full on this day

So far I can say it has been good at helping me recomp. I can see myself getting leaner, even if the scale is not saying that. So far so good

Dosed pre workout with carbs coming from cream of wheat. Ran out of oats so had to substitute. Wasn't a big fan of this combo, didn't feel as fueled up as I had been. Maybe because I had played ball before my meal and was tired but oh well. Still having good workouts and having some fun

Cream of wheat doesn’t stay with me very long unless I add a little nut butter personally

No me either, the glycemic index of cream of wheat is not anywhere near as low as just eating whole grain bread or pasta. It being ground up increases the speed of digestion a bit. Same with Cream of Rice but it goes even faster. I almost always put a tablespoon or two of Kerrygold Irish Butter, or smart balance w/ olive oil in with my cream of rice to make it stick around a little longer.

Noted that I was feeling a little off on this day strength and everything was ffx but still was able to utilize my carbs effectively with the help of Blue sugar. Still have muscle fullness even with the lower carbs.

Back was pumped and felt pretty good. I can tell once I eat and start training that the Blue sugar is working. My favorite combo that I have used has been a bagel sandwich with egg whites and low fat mozz. Probably around 60 carbs and from that my muscles stay full the whole workout. Great pumps even on the lower carbs

Off days as well for my last meal. Mostly the same effects. Feel a lot drier when I take it at night.

Overall Great workout. Did a Bagel (55carbs) Honey(15 Carbs) a scoop of whey (25 grams protein) and felt great. Good sustained fullness, pump was great. The Food digested fairly easily and had no issues. I know the sweet spot for me with 4 caps is around 50-70 carbs so I wont go over that, unless I ahve a cheat meal. The effects of this are great. I can tell a minor shift in body composition without changing anything

About how long are your training sessions? I love bagels but they digest very quickly for me without added fats

A bagel would definitely be my ideal food for peri workout with only an hour interval. That’s gotta be the perfect food for it honestly
It works so well, should have done that more, but can always buy another bottle and go with that

Wow I thought I had posted up my final review of this product a few days ago.

Overall I was very impressed with how the Blue Sugar worked. I never had any issues except for when I didn't use enough carbs.

This products really works. I never had a bad workout while using the blue sugar. Controlled Labs nailed this formula with a blend of Synergistic ingredients that work to make a very powerful and potent GDA.

Will I buy this in the future, for sure. It is something that I can easily fit into my budget and use almost every day, whether on a cut or a bulk.
