ApexXx Poseidon

Rating
Named after the Greek god of the sea, Poseidon is a workout recovery shake that promises to give you strength and energy to get back in the gym quicker. Containing various proteins, that work both short-term to boost your energy and long-term to aid recovery, it claims to help build lean muscle, shred fat, and ease soreness following a workout.

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.

ApexXx Poseidon Overview

What You Need To Know About ApexXx Poseidon

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.

What Are The Side Effects Of ApexXx Poseidon?

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.

How Much Does ApexXx Poseidon Cost?

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.

Our Verdict On ApexXx Poseidon

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.

ApexXx Poseidon Key Features

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 Facts

  • Water-soluble workout shake
  • Provides 62 servings per container
  • Contains 2.9g of Creatine

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.

How to Take ApexXx Poseidon

  • Mix 1 scoop of 36g with 200ml of water or skimmed milk. Shake or Blend well.

ApexXx Poseidon appears to be a standard recovery protein shake with the addition of Creatine, which boosts its credentials slightly.

ApexXx Poseidon Concerns:

  • Proprietary blend of proteins
  • No money-back guarantee
  • No objective reviews online and previously recalled product

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.

What Does ApexXx Poseidon Claim To Do?

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.

Does ApexXx Poseidon Work?

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.

What Are The Ingredients of ApexXx Poseidon?

It is a proprietary blend of proteins, amino acids, and also contains 2.9 grams of Creatine.

  • Whey Protein Isolate: Typically seen as the better form of protein, because its protein content is higher with lower carbohydrates, sugars, and fats. However, as it is more expensive, it is often mixed with the lower form of whey protein called concentrate, as below. They share similar risks, benefits, and optimal dosages.
  • Whey Protein Concentrate: The watery portion of milk left over when making cheese, as goes the saying ‘separating the curds and whey’, and contains a large amount of proteins and amino acids, thought to be beneficial for exercise and physical performance. The results in human studies are mixed, but there does seem to be some benefit to help build lean muscle mass. Some side effects may occur with too much Whey protein, such as increased bowel movements, nausea, thirst, bloating, cramps, reduced appetite, tiredness (fatigue), and headache. The amount needed depends on the health, weight, and activity level of the user to avoid weight gain. Source
  • Milk Protein: A 20/80 blend of whey and casein proteins taken from milk products. It is a cheaper form of protein due to the process it undergoes. It is a simple, cheap way of ingesting five times as much protein than if you consumed the equivalent in food.
  • Soya Protein Isolate: Protein taken from soy sources which are often contained in soybeans and related products. Thought to be a less effective form of protein but playing a different role to those found in dairy products, it is a common addition to protein powders. Evidence is conflicting as some studies have found an increase in muscle mass and others have not. It can have a pseudo hormonal effect, replicating estrogens in the body which are female hormones. Soy can cause some mild stomach and intestinal side effects such as constipation, bloating, and nausea. It can also cause allergic reactions involving rash, itching, and anaphylaxis in some people. Some people might experience tiredness. Soy might also affect thyroid function. Source
  • L Glutamine: Thought to be an amino acid responsible for building muscle but shows little promise in clinical studies, unless the user is suffering from a muscle wasting disease. However, it is useful for the normal function of many organs in the body. It is usually only deficient in vegetarians and vegans, so there should be no need to supplement it. It is found in very high levels in whey and casein proteins. There may be some hidden benefit to stabilizing blood sugar levels and reducing food cravings. Source
  • BCAAs or Branched Chain Amino Acids, are also present in high quantities in proteins and are one of the building blocks of life. They are essential for healthy muscle growth and if deficient may stop someone building lean muscle mass. Generally, most people consume sufficient quantities in meat and eggs. Source

Are There Any Customer Reviews For ApexXx Poseidon?

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.

Does ApexXx Poseidon Offer a Money-Back Guarantee?

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.

Where Can I Buy ApexXx Poseidon?

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.
