Once a classic now a waste of money,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: MaxiMuscle Cyclone 1200 g Banana Size and Strength Shake Powder (Personal Care)
This used to be such an outstanding product but if you now look closely, all the carbs come from SUGAR! You may as well each a piece of chicken whilst downing a can of coke!
Tastes awful now and not worth spending the money on

Its dextrose and deliberately applied to get a huge insulin spike - which in turn helps with the creatine loading and nutrients into the body. Hence why its a great morning, and post training product to get that boost. Insulin, yes, you want to keep constant for fat burn. However post training when on zero, hit this, immediate spike - its VERY beneficial when training. And again its dextrose. You are missing a major trick if blind siding this thinking its a "high sugar" product with no benefit. Timings are important, and hence 2 on training days, 1 on non. hence good to stack wit a slow release shake in the evenings. Maybe they should be more clear at Maximuscle. For this price with all the extras in side this, I see it as the cheapest on the market. At £55 a tub.... yeah not so much!

Further to the uneducated:
The original - this version requires sugar be ingested with it in order for it to be properly absorbed, a loading phase of 4-5 doses (typically 5 grams per dose) per day for up to 5 days and once a day thereafter. Some side effects were reported in some users"
hence if it wasn't laced the creatine would be null and void. A mistake many people make (often also given 1/5) for stand alone creatine products.
