Hypershock is a nutritional supplement that is marketed to body builders, athletes and weight lifters. The product is designed to help users increase muscle mass, body weightand strength, in addition to providing extra energy for workouts. The ingredients in Hypershock are a blend of vitamins, chemicals, minerals and herbs. The main active ingredient in Hypershock is creatine. One compound on the packaging is listed as the ''Hypershock proprietary blend'' and does not list the ingredients found in the compound. Before using any nutritional supplement, consult your doctor to make sure it is safe for you to use.
Nutritional supplements which contain creatine, such as Hypershock, can cause the body to retain more water than usual. Creatine causes water to be drawn to both fat and muscle tissue. This water retention causes swelling throughout the body, most notably in the muscle and fat tissues where the creatine in being stored. This swelling effect is often perceived as a rapid increase in muscle mass when, in reality, a large percentage of the volume increase in the muscle is water. Hypershock can cause bloating. Employ a low sodium diet while using Hypershock, as too much sodium can lead to excess water retention.
Dehydration can occur from using Hypershock. Dehydration occurs because too much water is drawn from organ tissues to muscle and fat tissue. Avoid dehydration while using Hypershock by increasing fluid intake. Before any exercise routine or workout, make sure that you are well hydrated. Exercising or working out while dehydrated can lead to heat exhaustion, and in extreme cases heat stroke, or even heart attack.
Muscle Cramping And Injury
Muscle cramping can occur when using Hypershock. Do not exceed the dosage recommended on the packaging. Too much creatine in the body may cause dehydration, which can lead to muscle cramping. Avoid exercise with cramped muscles, as it increases the likelihood of muscle tears, ligament damage, and sprains.
Gastrointestinal distress is a possible side effect of Hypershock use. Symptoms of gastrointestinal distress include excess flatulence, stomach cramping, diarrhea, and nausea. Generally, the gastrointestinal distress occurs due to excess creatine settling in the stomach before excretion. Take your dose of Hypershock with a 16 oz. glass of water or juice to help avoid gastrointestinal distress.
Stress On The Kidneys
Using too much of the Hypershock supplement has the potential to cause increased stress on the kidneys. The kidneys must work harder to remove excess creatine from the bloodstream. People with a preexisting health condition that affects the kidneys should consult a doctor before using Hypershock. Too much stress on the kidneys can cause fatigue, and in extreme cases, kidney failure.
