Product Description

Promax contains a unique protein blend called Biomax. The whey protein fractions in Biomax have been selected for their muscle-building properties. This makes Promax one of the best protein sources for anyone wanting lean muscle and definition, preserving lean muscle tissue, recovery, endurance and health when combined with your training regime.

Promax contains all the essential amino acids, and is especially rich in branch chain amino acids (BCAAs). Branch chain amino acids are used for energy during exercise and need to be replaced. They also play a key role in supporting muscle growth. Promax has a higher biological value than all proteins, including casein, egg, chicken, tuna and soya. Biological value relates to how much of the protein consumed is actually absorbed, retained and used by your body.

Promax is also rich in glutamine, an amino acid considered by most nutrition experts to be essential for anyone exercising regularly. Glutamine reduces the risk of overtraining, strengthens the immune system, and has also been shown to aid muscle growth.

Promax contains added digestive enzymes Digezyme and Lactospore for improved digestion and absorption and very low levels of lactose, making it very easy to digest and absorb. Because it's digested so quickly, Promax is perfect for use immediately before exercise. Scientific studies show that protein taken at these times stimulates muscle growth more quickly than at any other time. Because of their slow digestion, proteins such as casein or egg are not suitable for use before or post training.

Promax can also be mixed with milk - which is rich in casein - to create a time-released protein for us at night, or whenever you want a slowly-digested source of protein.

Promax contains excellent Potassium/Sodium ratio, making it ideal for those looking to avoid excess sodium and water retention problems. Promax contains naturally high levels of Calcium. As well as strengthening your bones, new research shows that Calcium also supports fat loss.

Promax contains just 2g of carbohydrate per serving and 2g of fat, making it perfect for those on "low-carb" or low fat diets.

Promax is the first protein powder to ensure its whey protein (Biomax) contains optimum levels of naturally occurring Orotic acid. A unique substance in whey that aids muscle growth and is an essential intermediate in DNA and RNA production.

Promax has been made stronger with the addition of Nitrogain a unique blend of Glutamine peptides, N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC), taurine and chromium polynicotinate. These nutrients have been chosen for their ability to help you build muscle and size.

Ingredients:

Biomax (a Maximuscle proprietary high quality blend of whey protein isolates, hydrolysates and whey peptides), flavouring: strawberry, betain hydrochloride, patented zinc stabilised purified prolase preparation derived from carica papaya, glutamine peptides, n-acetyl-cysteine (NAC), taurine, colours: cochineal, sweetener: sucralose, chromium polynicotinate.

Recommended Use:

1 scoop (30g) per serving. Promax is perfect for use before and after exercise. Studies show that protein taken at these times stimulates muscle growth more quickly than at any other time. For best results consume protein every 2-3 hours. This will promote muscle growth and speed recovery.

Mix 1 scoop (30g) of Promax with 200ml of water. Mix in a Maximuscle Shaker or stir with a fork and drink.

Flavour Name: VanillaSize: 908g Verified Purchase
I started strength training recently for the first time and discovered I just wasn't getting enough protein from my diet. I decided to give my protein intake a boost and bought this simply because Maximuscle had a female-friendly website that gave me lots of info.

One portion of this (one scoop mixed in with 200ml of water) provides 120 calories, 23g of protein, 2g of carbs and 2g of fat. Taste is important for me and the Cookies and Cream flavour I just can't flaw. It's sweet but not sickly, creamy in taste but not heavy and you can add more or less water to vary the strength of the flavour. You can mix with milk but I've not tried it like that as it tastes fine just with water. Apparently you can even mix the powder in with things like yogurt and cereal which I'm going to try aswell.

I started training about 4 months back and although I've been getting stronger, I have been a bit disappointed with the visual results. Having taken the shake for the last two weeks, I have already started seeing some definition and I feel stronger too - it's not that this is some kind of miracle potion but my diet had VERY limited amounts of protein in it before and my muscles just weren't getting the kind of nutrition they needed to recover, especially as I don't like to eat after a workout! I make sure I always have one of these shakes after training so that I can optimize my workout now!

I also highly recommend getting a shaker if you don't already have one - the Maximuscle Shaker 700ml is brilliant, leak-free and makes the whole measuring & mixing thing a whole lot easier.

Flavour Name: StrawberrySize: 908g
Been on this stuff for about a month so far and i've noticed a change in the time it takes me to recover after a workout. i no longer looked half dead and wiped out, cant say i've seen much in the way of defined muscle since i've been on this but its early days yet.

the jar comes with a plastic scoop buried inside which is equal to 1 serving. the instructions are on the jar and easy to follow. my only gripe is that the jar is huge but only half full, i'd much rather have had it arrive in a small jar which is fuller. the taste is something only the user can describe, i like the strawberry but it does leave a funny after taste but i've gotten used to it.

all in all i am happy that this shake is helping me get into shape and i would recommend it to anyone who is getting fit or bodybuilding

Flavour Name: StrawberrySize: 908g
Besides the taste being superior to any other protein powder I've tried (cookies and cream is my favorite), the nutrient ratios are also top of the line. Low carbs, low fat, and high in quality protein are three things this tub contains. I'm actually surprised how good it tastes because of the low sugar content, but they make it work. I take this each morning before going to the gym. I personally add 3 grams of citru malate and beta alanine which push my endurance through the roof; Citrulline Malate 200 Grams + FREE Beta Alanine 250 Grams Powder I'll usually do cardio after weights, and I'll usually slack off on cardio because I'm dead tired from my workout. Since I began taking this mix BEFORE my workout, I've been able to complete my cardio without ending it early. I use to workout on an empty stomach.

I was suprised that the tub does not contain a tool to weigh the correct amount of powder you require as stated on the label per serving (30g) which the manufacturer should address really. Tastes nice though will trial product for a month and see if its any good.

Flavour Name: Choc MintSize: Chocolate Mint Verified Purchase
This is my favourite shake because I can trick myself into seeing it a treat, it tastes that good.
I feel like when I have a shake after crazy cardio it really stops the after-gym binging I used to do..I think because (like I said before) it tastes good. Normally its more like a "Omg this is so gross, drink faster" situation. I mainly use Gold Standard 100% Whey now but will still replace this when I run out as I do use it quite often.
One thing is, I find this on the harder side to mix, dont get me wrong: there are a lot worse powders out there!

Flavour Name: Cookies & CreamSize: Pack Of 1 Verified Purchase
as a skinny guy trying to gain more muscle i chose the cookies and cream, most people are saying you don't get a scoop with it but you do its buried in the middle of it, the protein powder tastes nice with both water and milk but in my opinion tastes better with milk, im already gaining more strength in my arms than i used to have and i really cant fault this protein powder as it does its job i would recommend to any body builder or anybody trying to gain size

Most reviews of protein powders are along the lines of "Tastes <insert preference>". What is glaringly obvious is that no one can say for certain as to whether consumption of what are fairly expensive food supplements do indeed contribute to muscle growth. Or to put it another way, if I stop taking my protein shake, would I see my muscles atrophy? I'm not fully convinced that these shakes are essential if you're eating a well-balanced diet that already contains a decent amount of protein. The drink is fairly palatable although a bit too sweet for my liking. I've since switched to cheaper unflavoured powder which is free from artificial sweeteners and other bulking agents.
