What You Should Know
Gaspari Nutrition is a trusted name in bodybuilding supplements. The majority of the products sold by the company are for men and women trying to increase muscle mass and grow stronger. SuperPump 250 is one of these supplements. The ingredient list is long and complicated, but few (if any) of the ingredients will help a dieter meet weight loss goals. SuperPump 250 claims to increase lean mass by 97% when taken for 30 days with a decrease in body fat. The decrease in body fat is most likely associated with the workout used to build muscle and not the SuperPump 250 supplement.

After the dieter digests the huge ingredient list, they may feel a bit overwhelmed. SuperPump 250 offers several complexes with different aims in the body. The Anabolic Signaling Complex includes ingredients like creatine to increase muscle mass. The Myogenic Transcription Factor / Agonist includes ingredients to aid muscles in growth by making energy more available. The Lipolytic / Xtreme Focus Agent contains two main types of ingredients – stimulants and herbs to increase mental focus and clarity. Insulin Secretagogue Complex includes fenugreek which may help control blood glucose levels, but is more commonly used to increase the milk supply of lactating women (not helpful in building muscles). The final complex is the Rapid Absorption MyoHydration Matrix which aims to increase the rate at which the supplement is absorbed and the bioavailability of the ingredients.
Now that all of the ingredients are better understood, will this supplement increase weight loss? The simple answer is, probably not. There is a source of caffeine, though dieters are not told how much caffeine is included in the supplement, but there is also creatine. Creatine is known to cause water retention so the scale will likely move up when taking this supplement and not down, which is what bodybuilders are looking for. The inclusion of fenugreek is interesting because of the herbs connection with increasing breast milk supply. There is no mention of whether the increased milk supply is associated with an increased estrogen level in the body.
SuperPump 250 sells for $42.99. The supplement is sold in powder form and should be taken about 30 minutes before working out.

Natural supplements combined with a workout routine is a great way to lose weight, but this product is geared directly toward bodybuilders. The complexes are give creative names to fool users, but the functions are simple. The ingredients work to move energy to the muscle, stimulate muscle growth and increase fat burn with caffeine.
