With products named after Greek gods, you might not be surprised that they make bold claims, but is it all marketing hype or are they really giants of the nutrition supplement world? We delve into the ingredients and take a look at the outfit behind ApexXx to bring you the lowdown.
A recovery workout shake aimed at those wanting to get a body of a god, Poseidon, the god of the sea, specifically. Containing ingredients to provide quick and slow benefits to aid recovery and improve your lean muscle mass.
It is part of a range of other fat burners, prohormones, and nootropic supplements made by the British brand ApexXx. A relative newcomer on the market, they mainly promote and sell products via social media and their website.
One container of Poseidon contains proteins, glutamine, BCAAs, and creatine, providing 62 servings that are to be mixed with water. This workout recovery shake promises to get you back in the gym quicker by reducing muscle tissue breakdown and promoting new muscle tissue growth.
There are various known side effects with taking a protein shake containing Creatine. Mainly related to cramps, bloating, and nausea, which can be helped by building tolerance slowly and taking it with food and adequate water.
Currently retailing at £37.39, on offer from £43.99, one container has 62 servings of Poseidon. It is a comparable price for a protein shake with Creatine, although due to the proprietary blend, we do not know how much of each protein it contains and it does include some cheaper ingredients. Creatine is low cost to make so it definitely could be cheaper overall. They say it is currently out of stock at the time of writing.
It is a rather standard workout recovery shake containing a mix of proteins including whey and soy, providing a range of amino acids that could aid workout recovery and help promote lean muscle. We do not know how much is contained in this blend to know if it will be effective.
The bonus factor is that it contains Creatine which is a well known and proven physical enhancer and, whilst at 2.9g, it is not the maximum dose possible, it is a somewhat typical amount for most workout recovery shakes.
They could improve the experience by offering a money-back guarantee and working on gathering objective customer reviews.
ApexXx have previously had a product recalled from the market for containing dangerous ingredients that were not disclosed on the label, which we find concerning.
Overall, we do not recommend ApexXx Poseidon to our readers.
Made by the British nutrition brand ApexXx, Poseidon is their workout recovery shake, part of a range of other physical and cognitive enhancers.
ApexXx Poseidon is designed to aid those who prize meeting their goals highly, it claims to provide a complex range of proteins to help you recover quicker and build more lean muscle.
They say it is a quadruple combination of ingredients that provide quick and slow release benefits, and 10 amino acids for better recovery.
ApexXx Poseidon appears to be a standard recovery protein shake with the addition of Creatine, which boosts its credentials slightly.
The company is fairly new in this space, and it shows with the lack of reviews and information on their website. They could improve their standing by offering a money-back guarantee.
Claiming to be the ultimate recovery potion, that, when combined with water, will make you feel like a god. Combining amino acids, quick and slow release proteins, and Creatine to maximise muscle gains, it promises to be the perfect blend to help you achieve your workout goals.
It is likely to be as effective as other protein workout recovery shakes, which will be more visible to some than others. When combined with a good exercise routine and healthy diet, it may support your goals and help you recover quicker from heavy exercise.
The Creatine is present in a decent enough dose, but could be increased depending on weight and activity level of the user. It may certainly help you maintain muscle whilst losing fat, possibly even increasing muscle mass when used alongside resistance training.
It remains to be seen what ApexXx customers make of the product.
It is a proprietary blend of proteins, amino acids, and also contains 2.9 grams of Creatine.
ApexXx Poseidon may produce some side effects, most likely cramps or gastrointestinal distress from the Creatine. Consuming it with plenty of water and alongside food may help reduce the risk.
May contain gluten, nuts, egg and peanuts. Do not exceed the maximum daily intake. Food supplements should not replace a varied diet and healthy lifestyle. Store in a cool dry place out of reach of children. Not suitable for children, pregnant women or people with medical conditions. This product is not intended to diagnose, cure or prevent disease.
The ApexXx website does not provide any reviews or anywhere for customers to post objective opinions. They are very active on social media and their Facebook page may be the best place to look for an indication of how satisfied consumers are. There is nothing about ApexXx Poseidon at the time of writing.
Other products made by ApexXx have previously been recalled for containing banned substances without disclosing them on the label, which may be a red flag to look out for.
If you are not happy with your product, there is no point telling ApexXx as they do not offer a money-back guarantee or means to register a complaint. You can return unopened products, but the terms and conditions of this are vague. There is very little information on the website about returns, other than they tell you to write to them for consideration.
Poseidon is only sold on the ApexXx website directly and retails at £37.39 currently, which is discounted from £43.99. It does not appear on Amazon, eBay, or other online e-tailers, or appear to have any offline stockists. The main sales channel appears to be social media for this small, British brand.
