GSH Ignite Product Review

I try to eat clean as much as possible, but I do use supplements, but when I do, I like them to be as natural as possible, and to have additional health benefits too. I haven't used pre workouts or thermogenic fat burners for a few years as I just wasn't happy with the ingredients in most of them, but I've recently been introduced to GSH Ignite. So what is GSH? Well here is what the company say about it, what it contains, what it does and why it works, followed by my personal experience of using this product. The claims about their ingredients have been clinically proven, see their website for information.

Undenatured whey protein has been shown to significantly enhance muscular performance, GSH Igniteincluding peak power and work capacity (strength). It promotes a natural anabolic state in the body, the formation of lean muscle mass, and may also enhance endurance by fighting against oxidative stress, which causes muscle fatigue.

GSH and SOD are your body’s most powerful intracellular antioxidants. But as you age, their production declines, leaving your cells vulnerable to free radicals and forcing them to decrease their energy production. Elevating your SOD and GSH levels allows cells to produce more energy, more efficiently for a natural, sustained energy boost throughout your day.

Athletes who have first-hand experience with the destructive side effects of “quick fix” products are choosing supplements, like GSH Ignite, to enhance performance and well being naturally. Ignite is perfect for the health-conscious who want to skip or cut back on the coffee and energy drinks for a naturally sustained boost.

Not all proteins are created equal
You need extra protein to maintain, repair, and grow lean muscle mass. Protein is important because it shortens your recovery time and improves muscle strength. But not all proteins are created equal. GSH Ignite is clinically proven to:
  • Increase strength and explosive power†
  • Decreases muscle fatigue†
  • Enhance athletic performance†
  • Reduce respiratory fatigue†
  • Supports healthy heart function†
  • Increases lean body mass†
  • Boosts your immune system†
  • Supports healthy joints and cells†
GSH Ignite For Mid-performance Energy Boost
Power. Strength. Performance. Naturally. As a protein-packed energy boost, GSH Ignite provides the cellular energy you need while protecting your cells from free radical damage.
GSH Ignite reduces and even delays the onset of muscle and respiratory fatigue while increasing your peak power and strength. Push yourself harder, faster and longer. With GSH Ignite, your body can take it. GSH Ignite addresses three main factors that affect performance energy:
  • Supports cellular respiration†
  • Reduces muscle fatigue†
  • Reduces respiratory fatigue†
 
The Ignite Naturals product line is designed for experienced athletes and the health-conscious who want a natural solution for enhancing performance, increasing energy and managing weight. Whether you’re training for the Ironman or powering through an intense strength training session, pre-workout nutrition is the most critical element when it comes to setting new personal records. With no artificial ingredients or flavors, GSH Ignite can be mixed with water, coconut water and other mix-ins for even more protein.

GSH Ignite’s premium quality undenatured hormone-free whey protein boosts your immune system and raises your body’s own natural energy production. Add a proprietary blend of all-natural ingredients and you’ve got even more performance-enhancing benefits – all in a single serving.
 
GSH Ignite optimizes cellular function. Free radicals steal electrons from stable molecules, causing damage to cellular function, energy production, and even your DNA. GSH Ignite’s ingredients boost performance energy by binding to and neutralizing free radicals before they sabotage your performance and health.
 
GSH Ignite’s propriety blend of antioxidants supports your immune system and helps your body fight off disease and infection. Free radicals increase pro-inflammatory cytokines, which tax your immune system leaving your body vulnerable to illness and disease. GSH Ignite (natural cocoa) is full of antioxidants including:
  • Goji berries are small red berries containing an extensive list of beneficial compounds and essential nutrients, including 18 amino acids, 6 essential vitamins, 5 carotenoids, and 2 essential fatty acids.
  • Organic turmeric is made from the root of the turmeric plant, shown to have potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties, as well as the ability to selectively kill a wide range of tumor cells.
  • Cordyceps (mushrooms) have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer and immune boosting properties. They are believed to provide the body with increased energy by enhancing myocardial ATP generation and mitochondrial electron transport.
  • Organic cocoa, ground from the seeds of the cacao tree, has been found to be an effective antioxidant, as well as providing neurotransmitters that increase mental alertness, focus, and happiness.
  • Coconut oil contains significant quantities of monolauric acid—also found in human breast milk— that boosts immunity against microbial infections and viruses.
  • Bacopa Monnieri (herb) is used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine as a memory enhancer, anti-inflammatory agent, nerve tonic and heart tonic.
  • Royal jelly is honeybee secretions found to possess anti-tumor, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti- fatigue and immune boosting properties.
  • Glisodin is a patented 100% vegetable source of Superoxide Dismutase (SOD). It stimulates cellular defense against free radicals, boosting your immune system and helping to protect your skin from sun damage.
  • Grape seed extract protects blood capillaries and heart function, as well as being an anti-cancer, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory agent.
Why I like it?
whats not to like? Ignites products are all real food ingredients and contain no hormones, no processed sugars, no GMO’s and no stimulants. GSH Ignite has a chocolate flavour, its not overly sweet or too strong in flavour, which for me, is perfect for something i'll be drinking just prior to, or while working out. I've been using this as a pre / intra workout drink for about 6 weeks and I have to say, I've been lifting heavier and recovering quicker. I've been focusing on my off season on improving certain body parts and adding muscle generally and people i see every day at the gym, have started to comment on how I look like I've gained muscle, so its not just me that's noticing the difference. Im vegetarian, I am an ectomorph (tall and skinny), so gaining muscle and changing body shape is a hard process, so to see a difference relatively quickly is fantastic! I love the fact its a natural supplement, so I could use this right up to a competition and not be worried about artificial sweeteners etc. that I would normally eliminate close to a competition as well as avoiding generally due to possible health risks associated with them. I love that there are no stimulants, so you don't get that quick burst of energy followed by the 'crash'.
I love the fact there is so much contained in this product, protein, energy and antioxidants, for improved performance, enhanced recovery and full of extra health benefits! Its jam packed full of good stuff! This is a high quality supplement containing well thought out, good quality ingredients. So if you are health conscious, prefer natural ingredients, want to avoid artificial stimulants, artificial ingredients but do want a pre / intra work out supplement, this is a great option to consider. Its not a cheap supplement, but I do believe with supplements, you do get what you pay for. Having tried it for a month, I will definitely be continuing to use this product. Ignite is widely available in USA and Europe, in the UK its newly launched with Invivohealthperformance.com
