 BSN Cellmass

Description

BSN’s CellMass features an innovative cellular infusing matrix that combines a new, patent pending esterified creatine (CEM3), glutamine and patented Cinnulin PF (a water-soluble cinnamon extract). This innovative combination of nutrients promotes muscle, glucose (sugar) and energy metabolism. High performance athletes and bodybuilders can develop low muscle stores of creatine and glutamine and diminished blood sugar levels after high intensity exercise. Creatine and glutamine have been used by elite athletes and bodybuilders for years to promote athletic training and performance.

Creatine is a naturally occurring metabolite found in red muscle tissue that helps provide energy to muscles. Esterified creatines, such as CellMass’ CEM3, have an ester (organic compounds formed by esterification) attached to creatine monohydrate. This more potent form of creatine monohydrate maximizes creatine concentrations in muscles and creatine absorption into muscle cells. Double-blind placebo-controlled studies suggest that creatine supplementation can increase muscle mass, energy, strength, endurance, recovery and fat loss.

Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid (protein building block) found in the body. Glutamine is converted to glucose when the body needs more glucose as an energy source. For this reason, glutamine levels can be significantly decreased after an intense workout, trauma or stress. Independent studies suggest that glutamine supplementation can prevent muscle tissue breakdown (catabolism) and enhance protein metabolism.

Cinnulin supplementation may promote glucose metabolism and healthy blood glucose and fat (lipid) levels. Studies suggest that Cinnulin has positive effects on blood sugar, blood pressure and overall body composition. Researchers have also found that cinnamon extract may help delay or prevent diabetes when combined with proper eating and exercise.


Pros

CellMass won the Creatine Product of the Year award for 2005 and 2006. CellMass contains CEM3 technology, the newest esterified creatine developed, creatine-ethyl-ester-maleate. BSN states that many users may experience positive effects within the first 3 to 7 days of recommended use. The effects should become more pronounced each week thereafter.


The nutrients in CellMass have the following benefits:
  • Increases muscle growth and density
  • Enhances repair and recovery after training
  • Supports nighttime anabolism (muscle building)
  • Replenishes muscle creatine and glutamine stores
  • Promotes high intensity performance

Cons

Creatine and glutamine are generally considered safe. There are few side affects although stomach upset, diarrhea, nausea, bloating and muscle cramping have been reported.

Pregnant or lactating women, those prone to dehydration or exposed to excessive heat, or people with liver or kidney disease, Reye’s syndrome or conditions resulting in ammonia accumulation should not supplement with CellMass.


Be aware that some drugs may interact with the nutrients in CellMass including:
  • Chemotherapy
  • Cisplatin
  • Syclophosphamide
  • Docetaxel
  • Fluorouracil
  • Methotrexate
  • Paclitaxel

Is it for you?

CellMass is formulated for serious bodybuilders, athletes and gym-goers involved in regular strength training, wanting to promote muscle building and performance. If you’re currently using a regular creatine monohydrate supplement, you may get greater benefit from using an esterified creatine and glutamine product like CellMass.

However, pregnant or lactating women, those prone to dehydration or exposed to excessive heat, or people with liver or kidney disease, Reye’s syndrome or conditions resulting in ammonia accumulation should not supplement with CellMass.


Dosage and Directions

Serving 1: Mix 1 scoop with 4 to 6 ounces of water or your favorite high-glycemic carbohydrate beverage and take on an empty stomach immediately following your workout.

Serving 2: Mix 1 scoop with 4 to 6 ounces of water or your favorite high-glycemic carbohydrate beverage and take on an empty stomach 6 to 8 hours before or after your post-workout serving.

On non-training days take 2 servings:

Serving 1: Mix 1 scoop with 4 to 6 ounces of water or your favorite high-glycemic carbohydrate beverage and take on an empty stomach upon waking.

Serving 2: Mix 1 scoop with 4 to 6 ounces of water or your favorite high-glycemic carbohydrate beverage and take on an empty stomach 6 to 8 hours after your first serving.

For maximum results, drink 120 ounces of water daily and a diet rich in protein and carbohydrates. BSN recommends a dosing cycle of 12 weeks. After 12 weeks of use, discontinue for at least 4 weeks.
