Neon Sport Volt Ingredient Review

Neon Sport is the new brand from the makers of Cellucor Supplements. They have announced 4 new supplements to kick off the launch of their new brand. The Preworkout Volt, BCAA/SAA Kinetic, Testbooster Surge and an Anti-Estrogen/Cortisol product Intercept. Look for our detailed reviews of the ingredients in the near future. Today we are taking on Volt and seeing if the product will be a match for the infamous Cellucor C4!

Neon Sport Volt will be yet another stimulant product to add to the droves of bright & colorful preworkout products that are available today. Now Cellucor has the reputation and pull to make Neon Sport a success but the question still remains why the break-off brand? Why diversify in the one industry where image and reputation are all that really matters? We might not ever get the answers to these questions but what we can do is tell you what our first impression of Neon Sport is based upon the ingredients of their flagship product!

 

Neon Sport Volt Ingredients

Performance Matrix

Beta Alanine- Beta-Alanine is the building block of carnosine, a molecule that helps to buffer acid in muscles and increases physical performance.[1]

L-Citrulline- L-Citrulline is one of the three amino acids in the Urea cycle alongside L-Arginine and L-Ornithine; it turns into L-Arginine after absorption and being sent to the kidneys, so it is actually a better method of getting supplemental L-Arginine into the blood rather than L-Arginine itself [4]

Agmatine Sulfate- metabolite of L-Arginine which appears to be a novel neurotransmitter. As well as circulatory health promoting and provides pumps/vascularity.[2]

Electric Energy Blend

Caffeine Anhydrous- Caffeine is a compound that is seen as ‘anti-sleep’, by mimicking and blocking a molecule that induces sleepiness known as adenosine. Also a potent stimulant and fat burner; these effects, alongside some others, fade with time.[9]

Rhodiola Rosea- Rhodiola Rosea is most likely one of the most popular Adaptogen compounds, able to reduce the effects of a perceived stress. It grows in and was used historically in Europe, and is promising for reducing the perception and effects of mental and physical stress.

Olive Leaf Extract- Olive leaf extract is a supplement derived from the leaves of the plant that bears olive and contains the main bioactives of hydroxytyrosol/tyrosol and oleuropein/ligstroside.May benefit glucose metabolism which results in fat loss. [1]

Rauwolfia Root Extract- potent and selective antagonist of alpha-2 adrenergic receptors.[3] This is the same mechanism by which yohimbine acts.

NADH- Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) + hydrogen (H). This chemical occurs naturally in the body and plays a role in the chemical process that generates energy.
NADH is used for improving mental clarity, alertness, concentration, and memory

Depending on how synergistic this formula is the addition of caffeine, rhodiola & olive leaf extract are all potent and unique energy enhancers and the fact that the press release stated that Volt has been designed for people who do not feel workouts, chances are this will be another heavy stimulant based product that provides energy. The performance matrix seemed promising until you notice the tincey 2.3g blend. Clinically validated dosages of all three of these would need to be 11.5g plus so nothing impressive there, all in all only time will tell if this is just another stim heavy preworkout that offers little else.
