Hi and welcome to our Sculpt Nation Post Workout Review!
Sculpt Nation Post Workout claims to accelerate your results by giving your body the nutrients it wants after your workouts. It comes as a powdered drink, and has only one flavor “fruit punch”.
As you know, depriving your body of crucial vitamins, minerals and other nutrients can absolutely ruin your workout progress. Leading to fat gain, muscle loss, achy joints and loss of results.
Sculpt Nation Post Workout claims to be jam-packed with amino acids that your body craves for rapid recovery to keep your body primed to burn fat, get stronger and build muscle slowly but surely after every single workout.
Right, all of this sounds very good and well…. but does it actually work? Here’s our team’s thoughts.
How to Take Sculpt Nation Post Workout (Dosage Instructions)
Sculpt Nation Post Workout comes as a powder. You should take 1 scoop (8g) with a glass of water. Although, we’ve found mixability to be pretty bad – you may need to use a mixer for everything to fully dissolve.
Each scoop (8g) of Sculpt Nation Post Workout supplies you with these ingredients:
- Creatine Hydrochloride (1g)
- Creatine Monohydrate (1g)
- Creatine Anhydrous (1g)
- L-Carnitine L-Tartrate (500mg)
- Aquamin Mineral Complex (250mg)
- NuLiv Proprietary Blend (50mg)
- Actigin Proprietary Blend (50mg)
As you can see, Sculpt Nation Post Workout has 2 proprietary blends. In each of these blends, there are ingredients which dosages we can’t see.
This is a little annoying, but luckily, it’s not a big deal as the blends are only 50mg in size. So it’s pretty unlikely that the ingredients in them can cause side effects.
Okay, but what about the ingredients themselves? Can they help your muscles recover faster? See for yourself:
Creatine is a good ol’ bodybuilding supplement. Alongside whey protein, it’s probably the most used supplement amongst athletes.
But how does creatine work exactly? Well, it increases your body’s ATP production. ATP stands for Adenosine Triphosphate, which is your energy currency. Your mitochondria produce ATP, but they can only do so at a limited rate.
Supplementing creating boosts this process, allowing your muscles to store more ATP which helps with performance.
That said, creatine doesn’t really boost muscle recovery. As such, it’s a better pre-workout ingredient than post-workout.
Carnitine is a great ingredient for fat loss. It helps shuttle fats into your mitochondria. Mitochondria then use these fats to create energy.
Carnitine may not be the best post workout ingredient, but it’s certainly beneficial for any athlete who’s cutting weight.
Aquamin Mineral Complex
Aquamin is a proprietary blend consisting of calcium, magnesium and 72 other trace minerals. It’s sourced from seaweed that grows on the coasts of Iceland. This seaweed absorbs the minerals from the surrounding seawater, making it an excellent natural source of these micronutrients.
It’s just a shame it’s such a low dose. 250mg should be just for magnesium alone!
NuLiv Proprietary Blend
This blend consists of Astralagus and Ginseng. Both well-known for their general health benefits.
Astralagus can actually aid your kidney function, which can help process creatine better. Ginseng, on the other hand, helps manage stress levels. Lowering cortisol to speed up your recovery.
A great mixture, but at 50mg per serving, both ingredients are severely underdosed.
Actigin Proprietary Blend
This proprietary blend contains Ginseng (once again) and Rosa Roxburghii, a Chinese flower that’s rich in antioxidants and vitamin C. Though it’s not the best muscle recovery ingredient, it can aid other aspects of your health.
Sculpt Nation Post Workout should be a safe product for the most part. Its ingredinets include trae minerals and other natural compounds that shouldn’t give you any side effects.
If you’re allergic to seaweed though, you’ll want to avoid it before speaking to your doc.
Price and Value for Money?
Sculpt Nation Post Workout costs $37 for a container of 30 servings. Not too bad in terms of price itself. But could the value be better? It certainly could!
If you’ve got a keen eye for these kinds of supplements, you’ve probably noticed it’s missing quite a lot that would make it more effective at increasing muscle growth and recovery. This includes Pomegranate extract, potassium, Himalayan Pink Salt, and Beta-Alanine.
Sculpt Nation Post Workout Review – Final Thoughts
So that concludes our Sculpt Nation Post Workout review. Is this product worth the money?
We feel it’s decent if you just want a slight performance boost in the gym, and maybe some general health benefits along with it. But for muscle recovery? It’s not the best we’ve seen.
It’s missing a lot of the core essentials from its formula, and doesn’t have multiple servings per day, which would keep your muscles topped up for longer, and ultimately have a bigger impact on muscle recovery.
- Creatine boosts ATP production
- Carnitine aids fat loss
- A few good general health ingredients
- Uses two proprietary blends
- Some ingredients underdosed
- Incomplete formula
- High asking price for what it offers
