MRM Metabolic Whey™ Protein Dutch Chocolate -- 5 lbs

100% Premium Whey Protein. Zero Added Sugars. Loaded with BCAA'S and L-Glutamine. Mixes Instantly. Metabolic Whey™ is a delicious creamy 100% whey protein formula. Our unique protein blend NAT-Pro™  Optimizer is bioengineered to increase muscle size strength and promote lean body mass.NAT-Pro™ Optimizer delivers an optimal source of whey protein. It is produced by a state-of-the-art low temperature ultra-filtration process which yields an extremely clean high quality whey protein. This unique processing yields a High Biological Value protein rich in branched chain amino acids and glutamine for advanced recovery therefore providing increased nitrogen retention without causing indigestion stomach cramps or pains. In addition NAT-Pro™ Optimizer is fortified with cross flow ultrafiltered Whey Protein Isolate and L-Glutamine and Digest-All AP. The biochemists at MRM have taken the "High Protein Diet" to the next level without the worry of wasting ingested protein. The addition of NitroZyme helps break down long and short chain peptides into smaller more readily absorbable amino acids for maximum absorption and digestion. The problem with the "high protein" diet used by many athletes and dieters is that the body is unable to naturally digest and absorb high amounts of protein at one time. Digest-All AP helps the body release more amino acids from ingested protein than the action of digestive enzymes alone. When an athlete takes Metabolic Whey (enhanced with Digest-All AP) the body can absorb more free amino acids directly into the muscle tissue which helps to increase muscle size strength and lean body mass. Protein needs vary from person to person. Heavy resistance exercise and physical activity stimulates muscle hypertrophy (growth) as well as protein metabolism. Through stimulating myofibrillar protein synthesis (endurance training) and mitochondrial protein synthesis (endurance training) significant quantities of amino acids are oxidized during each type of exercise. Recent data concerning the protein needs for athletes and exercise enthusiasts has found that dietary protein intake of 1.2-1.8/kg body weight (1 lb. = 2.2 kg) per day is likely needed for individuals participating in regular strength or endurance exercise to achieve optimal muscle growth. New information has increased that to even 2.4g/kg for intense training athletes.  . To increase muscle size and strength it is crucial that you consume enough high quality protein to put your body into a state of positive nitrogen balance. Each scoop of Metabolic Whey provides 22g of a unique protein blend of undenatured and easily digested whey protein It only has 2/5g of Carbohydrates per serving with Zero Added Sugars (fructose nor sucrose). the carbohydrates in Metabolic Whey are naturally occurring from the whey protein as well as the flavors.  . This formula was designed to provide your muscles with all of the essential amino acids required for maximum nitrogen retention necessary for muscle strength growth and development. Metabolic Whey is a delicious protein supplement and is Aspartame-Free!

"For whey protein, it mixed easily and I really liked the flavor. The results were normal because it is just protein but the mct in it seemed to give me a little bit more energy. Overall a good product and for the price it is worth it."

"This product is low calorie at only 120 calories per serving and with a rich chocolate taste. 100% whey with 22 grams of protein per serving makes for a great meal replacement!"

Does the job
 January 10, 2013
"The good news, there is no settling the container is full which was impressive. There is NO sugar and that is significant. It does have some great ingredients.
The bad news, it tastes like protein powder from 20 years ago, little to no flavor and absolutely no chocolate taste. It doesn't taste bad, and it won't kill you to get it down but it doesn't taste like "rich chocolate." If you are like me and take tons of supplements, it's always nice to have something tastee to help get the bad tasting stuff down, this is not that.

Tastes Great, High Quality

"My husband and I love this whey protein. Best ingredients we have found. We used their other whey also, but this one has a better flavor and does seem to digest better. (I have a sensitive stomach.) Since we have been drinking whey in the morning, both of us have noticed more lean muscle, less fat on our bodies over time. Very easy change to our diet that has made a huge difference."
