Hypoxygen, a nutritional supplement from SNAC nutrition, has a formula that is intended to help your muscles recover from intense workouts and to make the most of your body’s ability to metabolize fat stores, build muscle tissue and work out longer than usual. The proposed mechanism of action is simply making sure your body has enough iron in order for the hemoglobin in your red blood cells to carry oxygen effectively. Though there isn’t a lot of evidence to show how much this helps or even how common iron deficiency really is, it might be a decent supplement if you’re not currently taking a multi-vitamin or eating a balanced diet.

If you’re not familiar with basic vitamin supplement formulasâˆšÂ¢â€šÃ‡Â¨Â¬Â¶well, you’re looking at one. Though these are excellent ingredients to help your body function normally, they don’t really add much in terms of helping you metabolize fat readily and, as mentioned, don’t really differ much from generic multi-vitamin’s formula. As listed on the bottle, most of these vitamins are included in many times the necessary daily dose. In fact, your body can only absorb about that much each day, which means that the extra just turns into “expensive urine.”
The company mainly distributes and markets its products through bodybuilding.com, but on its official website and elsewhere it tends to brag about supplying products to athletes like Barry Bonds (who is most famous for lying about taking steroids).

This is by no means a bad product and could prove to be an excellent supplement if you’re working out intensively, but it doesn’t really amount to more than a basic vitamin supplement. You’ll definitely be paying too much for Hypoxygen.
