Don't waste your money on a Placebo! Compare Supplements on Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) at Serious Supplements.

by Serious Supplements

Serious Supplements is the only supplement store on the planet to compare supplements on Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).

The team of experts at SS HQ have compiled a matrix of what we feel are the important factors to consider when choosing a supplement, and have compared a select number of products against these  performance indicators.

How to use

Simply click into the product of your choice (within the categories listed below), and scroll to the bottom of the page. Change the size of the product you are interested in comparing (if required). Try to also remember to change any comparable products to a similar size. You can now evaluate your product against "comparable" products.

Protein Powder KPIs

Calories Per Serve

If you are on a diet or a lean bulk, the number of calories associated with your protein intake could make or break your progress. If you are bulking, then a higher calorie option will be more appropriate.

Carbs Per Serve

High amounts of carbohydrates can be either a good or bad thing depending on your goals. After a workout carbs are generally good. If you are on a ketogenic diet then you will want to minimise carbohydrate content.

Cost Per Serve

Calculated by taking the number of serves (based on the size you select) divided by the unit cost.

Number Of Servings

The number of servings in each unit. This is helpful when planning out how much of a particular product you will need to buy, based on your estimated daily intake.

Protein Per Serve

Generally the more the better right? Don’t listen to those who suggest that the body can only absorb 30g of protein at a time. This is a myth.

Unit Price

The cost Serious Supplements is charging for the unit.

Click here and scroll down to the bottom of the page to compare Optimum Nutrition 100% Gold Standard Whey to other comparable protein powders.

Currently, speciality protein categories such as Hydrolysed whey, Casein or Pure Whey Protein Isolate have not been compared. Look out for these options soon.

 

Pre Workout KPIs

Beta Alanine Per Serve (Y/N)

Beta Alanine is a key ingredient that is important in the pre workout timeframe.

Cost Per Serve

Calculated by taking the number of serves (based on the size you select) divided by the unit cost.

Creatine Per Serve (Y/N)

Some evidence suggests that the pre workout time frame is ideal for creatine ingestion. It most certainly won’t hurt anyway.

Stimulants (Y/N)

Whether you train better with caffeine / 1,3 dmaa or without, this KPI measure will help you select the best product for your needs.

Nitric Oxide (Y/N)

This indicator tells you whether the pre workout product has nitric oxide boosting ingredients which may aid in getting a pump.

Number of Servings

The number of servings in each unit. This is helpful when planning out how much of a particular product you will need to buy, based on your estimated daily intake.

Click here and scroll down to the bottom of the page to compare USP Labs Jack3d to other comparable pre workout products.

Unfortunately, due to the prevalence of proprietary blends in pre workout formulas, Serious Supplements is unable to provide you with specific amounts of some KPIs included in this matrix. In these scenarios a yes/no marker is provided to indicate whether the product includes the ingredient.

 

Weight Gainer KPIs

Calories Per Serve

If you are on a diet or a lean bulk, the number of calories associated with your protein intake could make or break your progress. If you are bulking, then a higher calorie option will be more appropriate.

Carbs Per Serve

High amounts of carbohydrates can be either a good or bad thing depending on your goals. After a workout carbs are generally good. If you are on a ketogenic diet then you will want to minimise carbohydrate content.

Cost Per Serve

Calculated by taking the number of serves (based on the size you select) divided by the unit cost.

Number Of Servings

The number of servings in each unit. This is helpful when planning out how much of a particular product you will need to buy, based on your estimated daily intake.

Protein Per Serve

Generally the more the better right? Don't listen to those who suggest that the body can only absorb 30g of protein at a time. This is a myth.

Creatine KPIs

Cost Per Serve

Calculated by taking the number of serves (based on the size you select) divided by the unit cost.

Dosage Per Serve

An effective does of creatine monohydrate is around 5g per day (if a product delivers more than this per serve, could potentially consider reducing the serving size)

Is Micronised

Some people have digestive problems with creatine that isn't micronized. This indicator is for them (most people have no problems).

Number Of Servings

Click here and scroll down to the bottom of the page to compare BSN CellMass to other comparable creatine products.

Please note that there are a number of other “potential” KPIs which could’ve been included in the creatine category. Creatine hydrochloride (HCL) and Magneisum Creatine Chelate (MCC) have both been shown to have better bioavailability (absorbed better) than creatine monohydrate. They can also alleviate some of the bloating concerns some consumers experience. Russian Terragon has also been shown to improve creatine uptake. Please consider this when evaluating products in the creatine category.

 

Protein Bar KPIs

Calories Per Serve

If you are on a diet or a lean bulk, the number of calories associated with your protein intake could make orbreak your progress. If you are bulking, then a higher calorie option will be more appropriate.

Carbs Per Serve

High amounts of carbohydrates can be either a good or bad thing depending on your goals. After a workout carbs are generally good. If you are on a ketogenic diet then you will want to minimise carbohydrate content.

Cost Per Serve

Calculated by taking the number of serves (based on the size you select) divided by the unit cost.

Protein Per Serve

Generally the more the better right? Don't listen to those who suggest that the body can only absorb 30g of protein at a time. This is a myth.
