Redcon1 have been making a serious splash in the supplement industry in the relatively short time since they were founded.
The reception on their products/content has been fantastic and if you've ever used any of their products I'm sure you'd understand why.
The latest supplement in the line up is Breach Ballistic. This is energized BCAA formula based on their Breach BCAA formula.
- Proven 2:1:1 ratio of BCAA's
- Properly dosed with 5000mg of BCAA's per serve
- Clean focus blend
- Long lasting energy
- Added hydration factors
Redcon1 Breach Ballistic Formula
BCAA's for Recovery
All the products in the Redcon1 supplement range are transparently labelled so you know exactly what you are getting in every single serve.
This formula kicks off with a massive 5000mg of branched chain amino acids (BCAA's) in the proven 2:1:1 ratio. This is the most effective ratio and triggers muscle protein synthesis to get the body rebuilding muscle tissue instead of breaking it down.
The dose used here is also quite a bit higher than you'll find in comparative products in this category.
Each serve has 1000mg of glycerol which works as a cell volumizer drawing water into the cell. There's also 1000mg of taurine and added electrolytes so you get better endurance and stay hydrated throughout your workout/day.
This is where this product really stands out from the other products in this category. 500mg of choline bitartrate has been added to every serve of Breach Ballistic. This acts as a source of choline for the brain to make acetyl l-choline and crosses the blood/brain barrier. This provides a fantastic boost in mental focus and cognition to have to zoned in and feeling good.
Now for the fun part-the energy! This is delivered from a blend of caffeine anhydrous, do-caffeine malate and theobromine each in 50mg dose.
This yields a total of 85mg of actual caffeine per serve and provides a nice gentle effect and smooth energy. No jitters and overstimulation this is a well put together energy blend that kicks in pretty fast but also sustains you for longer.
Breach Ballistic Effects
This is certainly one of the better put together products in this category due to the high dosing of performance boosting ingredients. Nothing has been skimped on and this means you get that ideal combination of recovery,energy and mental focus.
The standout of this product for us is the focus. Using a tri-blend of different caffeine source for sustained energy along with the choline bitartrate provides a real feel good energy.
This is available in 3 flavours:
- Strawberry Kiwi
- Blue Lemonade
If you've tried the original Breach the flavour systems used are exactly the same so you know what you're in for. Flavours are on the lighter side which makes it quite pleasant to drink without being overpowering.
Mixability is pretty good but due to the high amount of BCAA's in the product it's not fantastic (which is a good thing in our opinion).
If you're looking for a product that blends energy/mental focus with a great recovery/hydration supplement then this is well worth checking out.
At $59.95 for 30 serves the value for money is quite good especially considering the dosing of the ingredients used in the product.
