15comments

If you want the bottom line on SSN, give me just two minutes of your time. We looked at the ingredients, side effects, clinical research, and customer service. Then, we read through hundreds of comments and reviews to see how people felt about the products. We then summarized and condensed to give you the information you need.

What is SSN?

First off, SSN or Scientific Sports Nutrition is a supplement company with a full line of products that range from protein, testosterone supplements, BCAAs and CLA. The ingredients vary by item, but are listed on the official website, as well as the recommended serving.

SSN is a division of Ascendis Health; an international health and wellness company. While you can’t purchase the supplements on the official website, multiple retailers sell the products. We like the variety of products and that we located some favorable customer comments, but read on…

Availability – “Where Can You Buy SSN Products?”

The first issue we noticed is the availability of SSN products. “In order to purchase the supplements, customers will need to select a dealer that sells the products,” said our Research Editor. “With the way people shop online, this could become inconvenient.”

“What’s with not being able to buy direct from the manufacturer,” said one user.

“If I wanted to buy from a dealer, I’d just shop in person,” said another.

Others don’t mind it.

“Buying from authorized dealers lets me shop where is most convenient for me,” said one dieter.

“Several dealers are in my local area, so I just shop like normal,” said another.

Customer Reviews – “Discouraging?”

We found several reviews of SSN products that we’re discouraging. “Gotta be careful and pay close attention to the product label. Some of the ingredients aren’t that beneficial,” said a customer.

“I talked to my doctor about one of their BCAA products and decided I was better off going with something else,” according to one review.

Still, some dieters had no issues with the products or SSN side effects.

“The protein powder mixes well and tastes good,” said a reviewer.

“I like how I can stack several products as part of my routine,” said another.

Over the years, we’ve learned that all it takes is a small issue, like not being able to buy directly from the manufacturer that causes people to go looking for something else. Customers want convenience, and when they don’t get it, they go to the competition.

The Science – “Evidence-Based?”

SSN does not provide science to support their products. There is research showing protein may help build muscle mass and strength. Other ingredients in the formulas are also connected to increased energy levels and metabolism boosting. The concern is that without studies showing the link; there’s no clear benefit to the supplements. At DietSpotlight, science-based facts are critical. When it’s missing, we become concerned.

What Users Are Saying

"”I used this product, very good”"

The Bottom Line – Does SSN Work?

What’s the real deal with SSN? Well, we like that some of the supplements contain natural ingredients and that we found some positive customer comments, but we’re skeptical about this one because there’s no clear connection between research and the formulas. Also, we’re concerned about discouraging user reviews, especially about product availability.

If you’re ready to improve muscle and strength, we suggest going with a supplement backed by research, supported by positive customer comments and that’s available through the official website.

Among the best products we’ve seen this year is one called Pronabolin. It’s formulated with nine clinically-tested ingredients, which have been shown to help improve energy levels, boost vitality, while promoting strength. There’s no mention of harmful side effects and users are talking about seeing great results.

Also, the makers of Pronabolin are so excited about their supplement, that they’re offering customers multiple-bottle discounts and a 120-day money-back guarantee.

What You Should Know

Scientific Sports Nutrition is a supplement company that produces a variety of products to help weight lifters and athletes. We will take a closer look at their product catalog to determine if there is any benefit to dieters.

List of SSN Ingredients

As Scientific Sports Nutrition produces several different products, we suggest taking a closer look a the product or products you may be interested in to learn more about their ingredients.

Product Features of SSN

Scientific Sports Nutrition produces the following products: 100% Whey Protein, Anabolic Muscle Builder, BCAA Caps, BCAA Powder, CGT-BCAA, CLA, Creatine Monohydrate, CytoGuard, Cytomaize, EFA, Glutamine Powder, Ignite, Joint Support Complex, MRP, MultiVit, N.O. Crea-Pump, and ZMA. Whey Protein is used to make protein shakes for building muscle. Anabolic Muscle Builder is a protein and carbohydrate formula designed to stimulate hormones to induce muscle growth. BCAA is Branched Chain Amino Acids which are a necessary part of building lean muscle tissue in the body. CLA is a derivative of Omega 6 fatty acids thought to help the body in many different processes. Creatine is one of the best performance boosters on the market. CytoGaurd is designed to help prevent lean muscle mass. Cytomaize is designed to help load the body with glycogen before and after a workout. EFA is Omega 3 and 6. Glutamine Powder is the most abundant amino acid found in the muscles. Ignite is a fat burner designed to assist people who want to lose fat. Joint Support Complex is designed to help support joint health. MRP is a protein meal replacement product. MultiVit is a multi-vitamin form. N.O. Crea-Pump is a creatine supplement that contains other ingredients to boost the power of your workout. ZMA is thought to boost muscle production through increasing the anabolic hormones as well as testosterone.

Advantages of SSN

  • The full list of ingredients is available for all products on the manufacturer's website.

Disadvantages of SSN

  • These products cannot be ordered online directly from the manufacturer.
  • These products are more geared toward weight lifters than dieters.
  • There are no free product trials.
  • We are unclear on the money back guarantee policy.
  • Products designed to boost the testosterone levels in the body are not safe for women.

Conclusion

Overall, we don't recommend these products because they are more geared toward those who are trying to build muscle rather than lose fat and weight. Though there is a fat burner, we are not sure if it is proven to work, and therefore cannot recommend it. However you can find serenity in other sibling products that include SSN Whey Protein, Anabolic Drive, CLA, Cyto Guard and Crea-Mass.

    I tried taking the SNN rapid shred and i felt like I was on drugs everytime. I felt like I was swimming underwater. Even my head felt like it was too heavy for my body. Safe to say I took it twice and decided no weight loss is worth my body feeling uncontrollable. Glad it was discontinued, definetly something wrong with it.
