Cellucor C4 Energy Natural Carbonated Review





Taste

Strawberry Coconut – This flavor was heavy in strawberry and light in coconut. While I am not a huge coconut fan you can pick this up as you sip on the beverage. The strawberry is good, but not going to contend with the Alpha Amino Ultimate flavor. While both are flavored in a complete 180 with ingredient profiles this is the closest thing I can relate it to. For a naturally flavored beverage, I can drink them, but if you don’t enjoy the stevia bite it may turn you off. I personally have no issue with it as I found the beverage to settle easy and the flavors to compliment each other with a heavier coconut to strawberry ratio.



Formula



The C4 Natural is a very short and simple formula.
1g Taurine – Antioxidant, Hydration Boosting Agent, Endurance
500mg L-Tyrosine – Reduce Stress, Improve catecholamine production, Energetic Neurotransmitter
250mg Cognizin Citicoline – Nootropic to prolong caffeine half-life, improve mood, enhance memory
120mg Caffeine (Coffeeberry) – Natural Stimulant



Cost
Retail - $26.99 / Case of 12
The best current deal I can find is 25% OFF. This will take cases very close to $19.50 each. When you factor in buying a case that would bring the price down to $1.60 per can. The thing with pricing on these cans is tricky because they are made for Sprouts grocery stores and Europa vendors. Therefore it is hard to find and get these unless you want to buy them direct for $30 Case + Shipping. Do your research and if you live next to a Sprouts I would suggest picking them up and trying them first hand.

Blue Star Nutraceuticals PPK Power Review






Flavor:



Pineapple Mango - I have had a few mango-flavored products on the market and Xtend/Xtend Perform has always been my favorite. Pineapple Mango is a very bold pineapple flavor complimented with a surging mango aftertaste. The mango flavor pairs extremely well to provide an extremely refreshing flavor. At first I thought the pineapple would be overbearing, but after the aftertaste hits you the mango flavor shines. This is a fantastic flavor especially for those who love fruity flavors. The combination of both flavors is pure and makes a fantastic flavored product.






Mixability:


PPK has no issues when it does come to mixing. Given the 13g profile and active raw's per serving I had my doubts there may be clumping or residue that settles on the bottom of the shaker. That does not seem to be the case here. After 10-15 shakes this was dissolved. There may be a slight glimpse of foam but that fades away fast.


Formula:





Calories5
Total Carbohydrate1 g
Niacin (as nicotinamide)20 mg
Vitamin B6 (as pyridoxine HCl)14 mg
Vitamin B12 (as cyanocobalamin)12 mcg
Sodium (sodium R-lipoate & pink himalayan sea salt)50 mg
Maximum Power Complex
Beta Alanine3200 mg
Creatine Monohydrate3000 mg
Betaine Anhydrous2500 mg
Peak ATP® (adenosine triphosphate)400 mg
Mental Focus Blend
Caffeine (as caffeine anhydrous)250 mg
Beta-Phenylethylamine100 mg
Huperzia Serrata(aerial) Extract (1% huperzine A)40 mg
Hordenine25 mg
Hydration
Coconut (Cocos nuciffera) water powder500 mg
Pink Himalayan Sea Salt300 mg
XD Delivery Technology Complex™61 mg
Fumarate
BioPerine® (Piper nigrum; fruit; 95% piperine)
AstraGinTM (Panax notoginseng, Astragalus membranaceus; root)
Succinate
Sodium Alpha Lipoic Acid


Cliffs:

Clinical doses of Beta-Alanine, Creatine, Betaine for performance, endurance, and recovery.
Peak ATP included to aid performance and increase body composition.
250mg of Caffeine (Moderate Stim) enhanced with nootropics (Huperzina A, Hordenine)
Coconut Water Power & Pink Sea Salt for Hydration
Increased Amino Acid update from Bioperine and Astragin combo.

Cost:

When you factor in nearly $3 a serving it will be a hard sell when buying direct. $60 for a 20 day supply equates to 4-5 weeks for most gym goers. Blue Star does run 50% off promo’s from time to time, so this is when you will want to keep your eyes peeled to buy. At $30 for 20 servings it is a much more cost effective option.

Would love to know how you get on with these, my right knee is pissing me off right now and 6 weeks ago I destroyed my ankle and ligaments so been looking at rehaband gear for my knee and ankle. 35 and falling apart :(
This morning was my first workout with them, I wanted to do squats but the back did not like that idea. They are a little uncomfortable on the back of the knee's (but I think I will get used to them) Leg Extensions, Curls, Leg Press, Seated and Standing Calf Raises all felt better on my knees with these sleeves. I like'em !!

I have these exact same ones. They are awesome and make my old and battered knees feel much more stable. I use them for squats, lunges, leg press and step ups. A while back I had meniscus problems in one knee. The knee sleeves along with Flexatril have been lifesavers. My knees still pop and crack some but the pain is gone as long as I don't go super heavy.

id be willing to bet that your knee issues are due to compensation from the ankle injury...

Your spot on actually. It’s weird to see as my calf is vanishing on my injured leg and on my “good” leg the calf is always pumped 😂 but yeah the knee is taking a beating due to compensation.

Just popping in to confirm that TMGS Rockstar is indeed delicious.

Also, if you're a fan of apple, their Bang competitor (XDurance) also tastes really good, IMO (and better than the ripped red, kiwi strawberry, and the crushed blue or cotton candy or whatever it is). They also have a tea flavor that released with the apple but i didn't bother as I despise the taste of tea lol.

I was in my local supermarket last week and the Monster sales rep was there re-arranging the drinks and was talking to me as I couldn’t find the white sugar-free version. She’s pointed out their new Mango Loco and said it was great and to try it and I would’ve done but 58g sugar in one 500ml can is demented.

I know it’s on par with 2 cans of full fat coke but still, that much sugar in one serving is mad.

That flavor is great but yea loads of sugar. The new Rockstar has similar flavors and zero sugar.

If you want a good cookie ice cream try out some of these

Graeter's puts full-size oreo's in their ice cream



Handel's Cookie Dough (Ridiculously loaded)


Handel's Oreo Dough: (Oreo's and Cookie Dough)


HD Vegan Mocha Chocolate Cookie (This one will surprise you how good it is)


B&J just came out with a Walmar Exclusive (Ice Cream Sammie) Which is basically cookies and cream


BUT --> Milk & Cookies is still better
