If you are looking for all-in-one bodybuilding supplements which supply your body with the extra nutrients required to grow bigger muscles, then which supplement you choose? The two heavyweights in this category are Maximuscle Cyclone and Reflex One Stop. But, are these supplements so popular because they are excellent products, or because they are advertised excellently? In short, the answer is both. They are both great products and at Promart Supplements, several of our staff have used both products and below is our opinion of these all-in-one bodybuilding supplements:
Both bodybuilding supplements are excellent quality and their “overall” rating has only been lowered by their “taste” ratings. There are better tasting all-in-one bodybuilding supplements, but that is usually because they are high in sugars and lower in quality ingredients, which is not good. Both Maximuscle Cyclone and Reflex One Stop mix easily and digest well, but One Stop is better in terms of price, as you get more servings for your money.
In terms of quality, here is the nutritional information:
|Nutritional Information per serving||Maximuscle Cyclone||Reflex One Stop||Additional Info|
|Protein||30g||37g||Both supplements contain optimised proportions of the more expensive ultra filtered whey protein concentrates, cross flow micro filtered whey protein isolates and whey protein hydrolysates. One Stop and Cyclone both also contain peptide bonded glutamine and digestive enzymes.|
|Carbohydrates||21g||15g||One Stop carbohydrates come from organic oats and barley, which are lower GI and highest quality. Cyclone carbohydrates are also low GI, but come from Maltodextrin.|
|Fat||4.68g||5g||Both products contain EFAs and MCTs|
|Creatine||5g||5g||Cyclone contains Maxpure Creatine Monohydrate, whilst One Stop contains Creapure Creatine Monohydrate. Both creatines are amongst the purest available in the world.|
|HMB||1.5g||1.5g||One stop HMB is pure L-Leucine, whilst Cyclone is Leucine metabolites, with L-Leucine having more positive research backing it up.|
It appears that One Stop and Cyclone are both very similar supplements. However, One Stop is slightly cheaper, gives an extra 8 servings per tub and also provides an extra 7g of protein per serving. So, which all-in-one bodybuilding supplement would I buy? Well, I like both supplements, but Reflex One Stop seems to be slightly in front of Maximuscle Cyclone at the moment. However, there are other better products such as AST Muscle XGF and Cytosport Muscle Milk, which receive better feedback and more repeat orders at our store, as well as better ratings on bodybuilding.com.
Does Supplementing with Cyclone or One Stop give Side Effects?
These products are both safe to use by men and women, but you should always consult your GP before starting any new exercise or diet programme. Both products contain creatine, which can give minor side effects, as dicussed in the creatine supplements blog article.
It should be remebered that both of these products are made from real food sources, but are in higher doses than you would find in normal sized portions. For example, creatine is found in beef, fish, etc., whey protein comes directly from milk, HMB comes from the amino acid Leucine, found in milk, eggs and any other complete protein source, carbohydrates come from corn, oats or barley. So, all these products are doing are putting together the best types and combinations of nutrients found in normal food into powder form, ready to be consumed by anyone who wants to gain muscular size and strength. Other than that – just think how many people have been using these products over the years – if there were side effects, do you still think these products would be available from supermarkets and high street shops all over the UK?
