Over the last few years supplements have come and gone. However, in what seems an essential and immovable group, BioRhythm Afterglow stands head and shoulders above its competition in the post workout recovery supplement category. Although its undergone a number of subtle, yet significant, formula alterations over the years, it has been considered the best of the best for 3-4 years.
Manufacture by a US company called BioRhythm ADS who have their moto as 'More Results More Quickly' they stand behind their company ethos of providing a supplement range designed primarily for results irrespective of the cost of putting the product together. For some of their line, such as Regenerate the price has made their hormonal rebalancing product somewhat of a specialist product, whereas for others such as Androbolix and AfterGlow the price tag has done nothing to scare customers away, and in fact the reported results, customer feedback, and retail sales have done nothing but reinforce the reputation of these supplements.
So we felt it was time to put AfterGlow by BioRhythm ADS to the test over an 8 week period, and to also get one of our nutritional experts to take a look at the ingredients.
You only have to search the internet stores to see that Afterglow typically scores 9 or more out of 10 on most supplement sites. You'll also see that it has its fair share of top athletes promoting its benefit, and we've had assurances from BioRhythm that none of them are paid endorsements, sponsored athletes, or otherwise influenced to give positive feedback. In fact in our own research we found positive editorials in a wide range of sports magazines ranging from female fitness, female running, MMA, boxing, track and field through to traditional bodybuilding.
Our reviewer, Joe, is involved in functional training, strength and conditioning and football (soccer) which he trains for 2 hours once a week and plays a weekly match in a Sunday football league. He trains for cardio fitness with sleds, tyres, hammers, bags etc for 30 minutes 3 times a week and trains with weights twice a week in a hard compound only exercise program. At age 28, 6 foot, 200lbs and 8% bodyfat he's a natural athlete with a training schedule that sees him train every day, or sometimes 5 ays with 2 days performing 2 training sessions.
Joes verdict was that the product tastes fantastic, and that he had to say that because its the thing that hits you the first time you take it. It just tastes unbelievably good, although the newer version with higher BCAA levels tastes a little less sweet and a little more milky, whilst the re-released classic version tastes more of a fruit juice and more pleasingly sweet.
Joe stuck to the recommended dose, and felt ready to eat in 30-45 minutes after taking AfterGlow. If he didn't eat within 60-90 minutes he'd start feeling a little shakey. From first taking AfterGlow he felt less lethargic in the 2 hours after training and also felt the quality of his sleep improved.
Within a week Joe reported feeling more 'up for' his training sessions, he felt stronger and actually increased his poundage's in his strength cycle beyond what he would have expected over the 8 weeks he used Afterglow.
Overall, the product is highly recommended.
From a nutritionists point of view, the level of carbohydrates and protein is well balanced for a 60 minute training session and the level of BCAA is high and inline with effective dosing performed in tests.
The product contains a number of ingredients at effective levels that along with the simple carbohydrates will rapidly reduce muscle related anti-catabolic activity, with other ingredients that will elevate insulin to trigger annabolic activity.
Afterglow is supplemented with creatines, glutamine and BCAA which will speed muscle recovery, recover muscle glycogen and help rehydrate the body.
From a nutritional point of view Afterglow is well worth using, to supplement a protein and carbohydrate rich meal which should be consumed within 1-2 hours of training.
