From Muscle Pharm’s website:
“Sleep is the key component to muscle growth. By maximizing the body’s natural “anabolic window” through enhancing, restful sleep, you progress forward. You can’t achieve those lofty fitness goals without sleep. BULLET PROOF™ is formulated to support Growth Hormone and Testosterone production, promote recovery and repair, and create new muscle growth.* At the same time, it helps prevent muscle breakdown, and maximizes these processes during the body’s most anabolic window…during deep, nourishing sleep.”
Bullet Proof mentions in its usage directions that they recommending cycling this product; 5 days on and 2 off, or for 22 days straight and then 2 weeks off. I have not used the product long enough to know if this is something I would recommend cycling or not but it would not be a bad idea.
Having problems sleeping most nights I was relieved to see that this may be a product that can help me get to sleep. The better recovery from sleeping and the added amino acids in this product would be an added bonus.
The dose is 1/2 a scoop to a whole scoop and I take a full scoop. I bought the grape flavor and it mixes well and doesn’t taste bad. The product can take anywhere from 20-60 minutes to kick in. I feel it kick in around 20 minutes consistently. When the sleep agents kick in you get extremely relaxed and this is an amazing product to help you get some sleep. It will not knock you out like drinking NyQuil but the relaxation is amazing.
I sleep through the night peacefully and wake up feeling refreshed. I don’t usually feel this refreshed at all upon waking up so this was delightful. My muscles feel ‘full’ and I feel good, everything seems to be great. I can’t say that the product did this or if I just am feeling better.
Overall I give this product a 5/5 and recommend to anyone who could use a little bit of help sleeping at night. I have not used the product enough to determine if there is any particular gains from the amino acids but I do feel quite a bit better when I wake up. For the restful nights alone I think that it is a good investment and the extra amino acids never hurt to have.
If you would like to purchase Bullet Proof, you can buy it here or purchase from a local supplement shop.
