Predator Nutrition Cyclone Review
Maxinutrition is the UK's bestselling sports nutrition brand with a huge mainstream audience thanks to the advertising and name presence associated with the brand. A recent rebrand to Maxinutrition has gone unnoticed by most people but it is part of a strategy to make sports nutrition appealing to a broader audience. Maxinutrition Cyclone, being their number 1 selling product, is the perfect solution for many newcomers to training who may find the science behind sports nutrition daunting.
Cyclone sets out its stall clearly as a product which provides a wide array of muscle building, recovery enhancing, and exercise fuelling ingredients in a single package. This makes Cyclone a great product for those looking to get into fitness and seeking an all-in-one solution for their goals. While there are a host of beneficial ingredients not included in Cyclone (because no product could include everything), Maxinutrition have delivered the key ingredients familiar to both the sports science community as well as the bodybuilding audience where the brand made its name.
Cyclone Triple Protein Blend
Each serving of Cyclone delivers a dose of 30g of protein, an amount which has been shown to maximise muscle recovery and growth. The actual protein in Cyclone is comprised of a blend of three proteins - whey, milk and soy. Each one of these has different benefits with whey being very fast to absorb and having a high biological value which translates to rapid muscle recovery and repair while milk protein is ideal for supporting recovery over an extended period of time. Finally, soy protein is a protein with a high protein percentage which also has some health benefits which make it a favourite among those seeking a healthy protein.
Strength and Performance Enhancement
While protein is necessary to optimise human performance it is not sufficient by itself. Cyclone adds in the widely researched performance enhancer creatine, a natural compound which is both safe and effective for athletes and bodybuilders seeking improvements in both athletic performance and muscle mass. Creatine acts as an energy source which the body taps into when it is engaged in high intensity activity. For anyone training hard in the gym or engaged in sports such as football and rugby creatine can be the difference between winning and losing due to its ability to extend peak performance.
HMB and Glutamine for Recovery
HMB is a metabolite of the amino acid leucine. Leucine itself has been shown to help trigger anabolic activity and is the major amino acid in protein that helps to drive results. HMB takes the positive effects associated with leucine and performs a similar job and has been shown in multiple studies with athletic studies to be capable of both attenuating the degree of muscle damage experienced by HMB users as well as accelerating the muscle recovery process. For anyone engaged in high frequency, high volume training protocols HMB is particularly well suited.
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the human body but despite this can be depleted rapidly when humans undergo stress of any kind whether that is mental, or physical stress such as exercise. When you fall ill glutamine levels are noted to be low and indeed low glutamine status is associated with poor immune system function. By replenishing glutamine depleted in exercise users of Cyclone benefit from ensuring that they can recover from the stresses of training more efficiently and thus make it easier to reach the type of physical state where training is more productive and leads to better gains.
Cyclone has a lot of different nutrients supporting performance enhancement while the combination of protein and carbohydrates which is core to this product ensures users both receive the fuel they need to perform at their best and recover as quickly and effectively as possible.
