What You Should Know
Muscle Asylum is the developer behind Freak Fix. Freak Fix is a protein supplement for bodybuilders who want to increase muscle mass dramatically. Because of the fact that Freak Fix is formulated for muscle gain, the supplement is not typically used for weight loss. There is no official website for Freak Fix, but the complete ingredient list is available online. That ingredient list will determine whether this protein complex is better than the rest or if the company is just better at marketing the supplement.
List of Ingredients
Creatine monohydrate, sunflower oil, l-leucine, l-leucine alpha-ketoglutarate, l-glutamine, glutamine alpha-ketoglutarate, l-isoleucine, l-isoleucine pyroglutamate, Taurine, Taurine alpha-ketoglutarate, l-valine, l-valine alpha-ketoglutarate, n-acetyl l-cysteine, l-norvaline, picamilon HCL, flax seed oil powder including Omega-3, medium chain triglycerides, conjugated linoleic acid, green coffee extract, cinnamon extract, n-acetyl-l-carnitine HCL, betaine HCK, alpha-amino l-butyrate, and beta Alanine.
The first thing we noticed in the ingredient list was the lack of protein. We assume this is just an oversight as the supplement is a whey protein supplement. Creatine monohydrate is on the top of the list, which is nothing new. Creatine is commonly used in bodybuilding supplements. It pulls body fluids into the muscles, among other positive benefits. That water makes the muscles feel and look fuller. For the dieter, this would cause water retention.
There is a long list of amino acids, another common set of ingredients. The basic facts of amino acids are that they work to help utilize protein, build muscle and repair muscle. Most bodybuilders will supplement with amino acids either in a protein shake or as a standalone supplement.
There are some omega 3 fatty acids in Freak Fix which is a healthy choice, but these fats will not increase muscle gains. The conjugated linoleic acid could be responsible for the user complaints of stomach discomfort and diarrhea associated with Freak Fix.
The green coffee extract will offer a bit of energy to the user but green coffee is more widely recognized as an antioxidant as opposed to a stimulant.
At the end of the ingredient list we are left feeling like something is missing. Freak Fix does not offer any unique ingredients that will cause amazing muscle gains. This is a basic whey protein with amino acids, omega 3s and a bit of caffeine.
- Creatine may help the bodybuilder feel larger.
- Freak Fix sells for around $20 a canister.
- The product may be discontinued.
- There is no official website with an official ingredient list.
Freak Fix is not the end all protein shake. The gains claimed by users are more likely due to the mental aspect of supplementation than the physical reaction the body is having to the ingredients in the supplement. Any bodybuilding protein shake should have the same effects as Freak Fix.
