Force Factor BRX
Force Factor BRX is an all-new product about to be launched by Force Factor, makers of Body Rush and Factor 2.
This company, founded by rowers from Harvard University, has several professional athletes on its team, including a few NFL players.
The buzz around this new pre-workout supplement by Force Factor is that it aims to eliminate all wasteful and non-essential ingredients in order to provide a powerful kick with pure energy and muscle building ingredients.
Will Force Factor’s new product live up to its claim and really do the trick? We’ll take a closer look at the ingredients and how much of a ding this product will put in your wallet.
How Does Force Factor BRX Work?
Many pre-workout supplements combine anywhere between 20-40 ingredients that may or may not combine to produce extraordinary results. According to the marketing of BRX, however, this product is keyed by six main ingredients. These primary ingredients are:
Thiamine: Assists in the conversion of blood sugar into energy.
Vitamin B6: B6 is primarily involved with protein metabolism, but also assists in carbohydrate and fat metabolism.
Vitamin B12: B12 aids in metabolism and is essential in the production of red blood cells.
Creatine: Heavily used amongst bodybuilders, wrestlers and sprinters, Creatine is a nitrogenous amino acid which commonly is known to supply energy to muscles as well as muscle mass.
Beta Alanine: An amino acid that rids the body of excess hydrogen ions formed during the high stress of a workout through higher carnosine levels. This helps to ward off muscle fatigue and stiffness.
Caffeine: Stimulant that has been found to increase cognative abilities such as mental focus, alertness and attention. In moderate quantities Caffeine has been found to be safe and effective for those with a tolerance to such stimulants. Because different bodies process this stimulant slower or faster, it is known as a restricted drug by the IOC but is not banned by the World Anti Doping Agency (WADA).
*Force Factor BRX contains 100 mg of caffeine per serving (equivalent of strong cup of coffee).
Does Force Factor BRX Work
It certainly seems like the mix of marketed vitamins and amino acids would work well for those requiring quick bursts of energy such as weight lifters or sprinters.
However, it’s a bit of a concern that Force Factor, which usually labels all ingredients, combined its key ingredients outside of the B Vitamins and Caffeine as the “BRX Proprietary Blend”. We also don’t have any athlete recommendations to offer since the product has yet to officially be launched.
What Do We Suggest?
BRX is currently sold in a larger jar with 40 servings or a smaller container with 10 servings of either the Blue Raspberry or Watermelon flavors. The larger jar is currently on sale for $32.99 while the smaller jar is offered for $9.99.
Force Factors other products have generally been a success. Since the product hasn’t been tried and tested we’d recommend grabbing a small container – if you’re not impressed you’re only out ten bucks and for just over $20.00 you could tryout both flavors of BRX.
