The Truth About “Shredz” Supplements: A No B.S Review


What’s going on, guys. Sean Nalewanyj here www.SeanNal.com-www.BodyTransformationTruth.com
and in this video here I’m going to be giving you an honest no BS review of the Shredz Men’s
Supplement lines. Keep in mind, that there is overlap between
a men’s and women’s lines, if you’re watching this and you are female. Shredz has become a hugely popular company
over the last year or two, mainly because all of the marketing that they’ve done mostly
through Instagram. However, most of the Shredz reviews that you’ll
find out there are honestly not very well to put together at all. They’re not accurate, they’re not science
based and a lot of them are heavily biased as well, because they’re put out by people
who have a vested interest in you buying the products. I’m not going to go into any details here
on the whole Shredz controversy that’s been going on with the Photoshop pictures and the
fake, transformation contests, and the [Indiscernible] or not status some of their athletes. That’s not what this video is about. This is just going to be an honest objective
look at their actual supplement line based on the ingredients they used, the dosages
and the cost. I’ve been researching fitness supplementation
for over fifteen years now. I’m not affiliated with any supplement companies. And my only goal is to give you the honest
facts so that you can make the smartest and the most cost-effective decisions for your
fitness programs, simple as that. So first off is their protein powder. There’s nothing really fancy here. This is just a standard tub of whey concentrate
and whey isolate, and based on the label it doesn’t look like it’s been amino spiked
using any cheap fillers, so that’s a good thing, assuming the label’s accurate. You get 23 grams of protein per 30 grams scoop. What’s going on, guys. Sean Nalewanyj here

is just a standard tub of whey concentrate and whey isolate, and based on the label it
doesn’t look like it’s been amino spiked using any cheap fillers, so that’s a good
thing, assuming the label’s accurate. You get 23 grams of protein per 30 grams scoop.
2 ½ carbs and 1 ½ fats, pretty standard like I said. So, no issue with the product
itself. However, the only problem here in my view is just the price. If you’re using
protein powder consistently as part of your diet then there’s no real reason to be buying
it in a small two pond tubs like this, because the cost per serving for that is really high
in comparison to just buying a bigger five pound tub. With Shredz whey protein you’re
paying $40 for thirty servings, which is $1,33 per serving. Whereas if you bought, for example
a five pound tub of Optimum Nutrition whey, which is the one that I used, very popular,
widely used brand, you’ll be paying about seventy-five cents per serving which is quite
a bit less. Now, to put that into perspective, if you were to use a two scoops of protein
powder a day then you’d save over $400 a year just from that alone. And this is just
one example and I’ll link my free supplement guide in the description box below, which
includes all of my recommended protein powders that are high quality and cost-effective as
well. So, the Shredz whey protein itself isn’t bad but it’s just pretty expensive per serving
in comparison to other available options. Next up is the Shredz Alpha Testosterone,
which is their natural testosterone booster. I talked about this many times in the past
but the fact is that natural over-the-counter testosterone boosters are not going to be
effective for the purpose of improving muscle growth or fat loss. In order to actually gain
any noticeable muscle size and strength from these type of products your test levels would
have to be elevated by a very high percentage and sustained overtime. And there isn’t
a single natural supplement out there that’s actually going to do that for you. There’s
just no good research to back that up. Some ingredients can be useful for improving libido,
so if that’s a concern for you then it might be worth looking into. But if your goal is
to gain more muscle and lose more fat then I definitely don’t recommend bothering with
any natural testosterone boosters. And aside from that the Shredz products is based off
of a proprietary blend anyway, which is a really common technique that supplement companies
used as a way to under dose their products and saved on cost. I’m not definitively
saying that Shredz is doing that but that’s what proprietary blends are pretty much always
used for in this industry. Basically like you can see here, they list off a bunch of
different ingredients and give you the total amount for all of them combined but not the
individual dosage per ingredient. And this makes the label look great because it includes
so many recognizable ingredients but what it does is allow the company to just sprinkle
in small amounts of some or all of them as away to save on cost because they know that
the average person is really just responding to the marketing behind the product and ultimately
won’t know the difference. And then in terms of the actual formula, the first ingredient
here is Spanish Pellitory, which is a newer compound that only has rat research behind
it as far as I know. And the second ingredient is maca, which is effective for boosting libido
but the proper dosage for maca for most guys is already higher than the amount of the entire
blend of all five ingredients combined. So, there’s really no point in going further
on this one. It’s not going to boost testosterone levels into any sort of muscle building range.
It’s under dosed. And it also cost $60, which is extremely expensive for these type
of products as well. If you really want to waste your money on a natural test booster,
then there are plenty of other way cheaper options out there that are better formulated
than this as well. Next up is their creatine product. Which is a combination of magnesium
creatine chelate, and then another proprietary blend with beta-alanine as the main ingredient.
First off, like I’ve said a million times before, there’s no research out there that
shows any form of creatine to be more effective than basic creatine monohydrate. And the reason
companies market these new and improved forms of creatine is because they sound a lot more
exciting than basic creatine monyhdrate does, and as a result they can charge way more money
for it. Creatine monohydrate is the most researched sport supplement in the world and has an extremely
high absorption rate in humans. It fully saturates the muscles after two or three weeks of used.
And it has no side effects in otherwise healthy people when used properly. It’s not that
the creatine they’re using here is necessarily bad, but there’s just no reason to pay multiple
times the cost when you can get all the benefits you need just by using monohydrate instead.
As for the beta alanine the proprietary blend here gives you 2.2 grams for beta-alanine,
L-Arginine and vanadyl sulfate combined when the proper dose for beta-alanine alone is
a minimum of 3.2 grams. So you could already see that this is under dosed which backs up
what I said earlier about proprietary blends being used for that purpose. And then on top
of that vanadyl sulfate and L-Arginine are useless ingredients anyway when it comes to
muscle growth and training performance. So basically, you’re paying $50 a bottle for
overpriced creatine and under dosed beta-alanine. What you could do instead is just buy pure
creatine monohydrate on its own, which will cost about three cents per gram. Beta-alanine
on its own for six cents a gram, and then just take them at their proper dose and you’ll
pay about ten bucks a month instead of fifty and get even better results. Next up is the
Shredz Fat Burner Max. Once again all of the ingredient dosages are hidden behind proprietary
blend. Surprise, surprise. So you really have no clue what you’re actually getting here,
or more accurately what you’re probably not getting. The main ingredient is African
mango seed, which was a heavily marketed weight loss miracle a couple years back but it’s
faded out instead, and it’s normally used as an appetite suppressant that’s taken
before meal. So I really don’t know why they use that as the main ingredient in a
pre-workout fat burner. That really doesn’t make sense. But of course all you have to
do with any fat burner is throw in some caffeine. Because that way, no matter what else is included
or how ineffective it might be, or how under dosed it might be people are going to take
the product, they’re going to feel the energy boost and then assume that the product is
effective because of that. The reality is that basic caffeine and hydrase is the driving
force behind pretty much every single pre-workout product, fat burner and energy drink out there.
It is effective but that doesn’t mean that you need to pay $75 a bottle for it, which
is the cost of the Shredz Fat Burner. Now I’m not going to say the $75 a bottle is
an absolutely insane, borderline criminal price for a fat burner but, yeah. So honestly,
it’s impossible to review this fat burner any further because you have no idea what
you’re actually taking. Since all the dosages are hidden. I wonder why. And weighing off
of that fact along with the ingredient profile, and the $75 per bottle price, I think the
choice is pretty obvious here. Next up is their BCAA Plus Glutamine. Now, I know a lot
of people out there do use BCAAs as well as glutamine and swear by them, but I personally
don’t think they’re necessary for the average trainee. Because if you’re getting
a sufficient amount of total dietary protein each day then you already getting very high
amount of BCAAs and glutamine just from that alone. And I’ve done a detailed post on
this in the past, outlining the science behind why I don’t think they’re necessary and
I’ll link them in the description box below if you want more information on that. But
regardless, even if you do supplement with BCAAs and glutamine and you want to continue
using them you can still get it for way cheaper than what Shredz is charging. The price for
this one here is $45 for thirty servings, with 6 grams of BCAAs and 2 grams of glutamine.
Whereas instead you could just go with the extend product from Scivation, which a pretty
popular one that you might be familiar with because that’s actually gives you slightly
more BCAAs and slightly more glutamine per serving. And it’s $24 per thirty serving
rather than $45. Again, I still wouldn’t recommend spending your money on BCAAs and
glutamine but if you’re going to Shredz is still much more expensive, almost double
the cost of other comparable products. Lastly, and I’ll keep this one really quick, is
their Rebuild Formula, which is essentially just a ZMA product. I’m not opposed to zinc
or magnesium supplementation because a lot of hard training lifters can have lower levels,
but the problem with Shredz is that they’re using magnesium oxide which is well known
to be the cheapest and lowest quality form of magnesium you can get. So they saved money
and you get a product that you bought that you can hardly even absorb. There are plenty
of brands out there using higher quality forms like magnesium citrate, glucanate or diglycinates
and in keeping with the theme here Shredz’s product is hugely overpriced anyway at $45
for thirty servings. So that covers everything, guys. I think it’s probably pretty obvious
what my opinion is of Shredz supplements by this point without me having to explicitly
say it. So I’ll just leave it at that. And you can take the information here and decide
for yourself what you’d like to do. The reality is that supplements only play a very
minor role in any muscle building or fat burning program. Getting a real result primarily comes
down to proper training and proper nutrition. And only a very small handful of supplements
out there are worth investing in. And even then the results are still going to be modest.

  1. If you are reviewing Shedz supplements, you should have photoshopped the thumbnail as well

  2. You should recommend a Pea protein powder, its about the same price if not cheaper, has plenty of protein per scooping, and all the essential and nonesential amino acids.
    The best part is that it is not aggressive to your kidneys, as it is other animal protein based powders, your body will thank you in the long term

  3. i appreciate your knowledge and honesty. how dearly do i wish all of those six pack shortcuts subscribeers would listen to you instead. you have a very unique and didferent approach when it comes to give any sort of advice and dammit i will not take that for granted! i salute you Sean!

  4. Is it true that micronized creatine monohydrate or creatine hcl has better absorption compared to reg creatine monohydrate which can result in less subcutaneous retention?

  5. I have completely stopped using all supplements other than Protein powder and caffeine as a pre workout. It's saving me a ton of money and has made absolutely no difference in my results.

  6. That's why the only supplement I take is this one drink called DiHydrogen Monoxide. Its a dirty little secret of mine. Not only is it good for re-hydrating and quenching your thirst, it also is shown to mutate DNA, denature proteins, disrupt cell membranes, and chemically alter critical neurotransmitters. All these benefits and it is also super cheap.

    You have to drink it at your own risk though, as it is also used as an industrial solvent and coolant, its a spray-on fire suppressor and retardant, its a byproduct of hydrocarbon combustion in furnaces and air conditioning compressor operations. Its in toxic chemical compounds like shaving cream, shampoo, fertilizers, etc. Studies also show that 100% of people who come in contact with DiHydrogen Monoxide will die. But I drink it anyway as I think the goods outweigh the bads. Its a great supplement that the supplement companies don't actually want you to know about.

  7. "Nah brah! Ana Cheri, Paige Hathaway , and Dolly Castro all take Shredz after their ass out squats on Instagram. That's how you know it works."

  8. Sean Can u tell a little about your research, is it education related, like university maybe make a video about it. And another question can u get sued by these companies i mean u do live in the states right? I'm just glad that here in Eu we got Bulkpowders (British) and Bodylab  (Danish) u can by almost every thing in bulk and the whey is top quality no BS small containers with expensive graphics on the can. great video as always

  9. Hey Sean, do you still recommend beta alanine, after the new research suggesting it is only effective in reps lasting in the 60-120sec range? Most sets are less 30s. Thanks, keep up the good work.

  10. It is Criminal that Sean only has 80,078 subs! The man deserves a million at least! Wish more people found his channel.

  11. Hi Sean. You are right in your review especially your conclusion. This past year I have focused on my health even more. I've increased my diet even more. Eating proper nutrition. I eat lean meats, fiber, veggies. The only suppliment I take now is the Citrulline Malate. Not only has that helped with my fatigue but I haven't had any gout flare ups since taking it either. I also take a general liquid multivitamin enhanced version which has higher amounts of minerals and vitamins. The diet has really cut my abdomen. I'm starting to see some packs 😊 Martial arts and general workout is going well. Thanks again Sean!

  12. Can you review the Legion supplement line? Mike Matthews seems to really be focused on what you emphasize like clinically effective dosages and no proprietary blends.

  13. Shredz is a pyramid scam, nothing more. They need to be shut down by the FDA.
    Every supplement other than Creatine is useless. Just drink coffee or energy drinks instead to get the hype, it'a better than wasting ~$45 monthly.
    Awesome video as always Sean. Cheers !

  14. Thanks for the great product review once again, Sean boiii. Now, there's no Shredz products here in where I live, not even from the internet shops unless I order from abroad but yeah, I still learned things. For example that the supplement companies use a weaker form of magnesium (oxide) instead of the better ones (sitrate etc). Now, ofc if you could hook us with some actual proof other than your word that would be great, mm-m. But you seem like a trustable fella! Wink wink (no homo). I'd like to see more supplement reviews in future! Like, some science based stuff, what's the best form of something etc. Thanks d00d. Peace out

  15. I feel like the supplements arent that bad, theyre just generic fitness supplements that companies sell. They just have a lot of marketing and are a bit more expensive.

  16. I LOVE this man!!!!! Sean if I could put you in my purse every time I went to the store, it'd be done 😆🙌🏽 Great review on this stuff, keep these vids going!!!!

  17. Sean just imagine how funny it would look for a human being to be 4'2 960 lbs shredded 😂😂😂😂😂 he'd be wider than he is tall lmaoo

  18. I've tried your homemade preworkout and even using the maximum doses I didn't notice much of a difference. I've never really felt much of a difference drinking coffee or energy drinks but preworkout supplements seem to greatly affect my energy levels. Is there anything in preworkout supplements you can think of that would cause me to notice a difference aside from it all being a mental thing?

  19. Great video. What do you think about agmatine and/or citrulline malate? A video on NO boosters / pump products would be great!

  20. can you review Optimum Nutrition next? They are the most popular brand in the market so it should be interesting if the quality is up there.

  21. Dear Sean, I've been training for 3 years. However, I have to admit that I've been training like a moron during those years and my gain was very very small. I've read your article about "how fast can you build muscle" and worry that I have "missed" my chance to build up those muscle easily. So my question is: Does the rule "1 Year: 50% > 2 Years: 75% > 3 Years: 85-90%" still apply to me (like my progress will be slow like that even though I'm not muscular or ripped)?

  22. No love for Shredz, but high-dose anacyclus, maca, and tongkat actually makes a FAR better natty test booster than 99% of the tribulus-based turds out there.

  23. Sean, do you agree that creatine solubility has no effect in terms of its absorption in the body and increasing performance? I mean if that would be the case, cratine in capsules would have absolutely no effect when it's not true. So, the extreme solubility of creatine hcl has absolutely no edge when compared to micronized creatine mono because stomach acid will dissolve any creatine anyway, right?

  24. I am sorry to say but many supplements my husband and I have taken have been useless including ON and we have tried so many but we have a hard time finding natural ones, such as Shredz. I have to say when it comes to the ON whey they do spike it up with amino acids which they d not specify in their labels, however they state it in their web page. Even though their products are in the pricier side they do provide a natural alternative to building. Also for those thinking Shredz is a pyramid company, it is not as it runs through the main corp. office in NJ which does not tell people go out and find people to sell such as Herbal Life and Beachbody. Shredz is more like 1st phorm and EVL.

  25. Shredz actually work, the problem is people take them and don't work out or don't eat heathy…I took shredz for 3 months straight and I went from 170lbs to 185lb as I was trying to gain weight/muscle mass…but I lifted and ate healthy, supplements only work if your lifting and eating right they will help get you quicker results.

  26. Shredz creatine works great for me at least..i noticed difference in endurace in as quickly as first 3 days…(and im not AD bitch) just giving my honest review

  27. Hello there, have you considered Fenoboci Diet Plan yet? Just simply do a search engine search. On there you will discover that a great tips about how you can lost a lot of fat. Why not give it a shot? perhaps it'll work for you too.
