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

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.
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
Not one I would buy again as there are better products out there for less money
I would recommend taking one scoop before training and one scoop after training. The powder mixes well with water or milk and the majority of the flavours are very tasty. Having tried all of the flavours, I would recommend Strawberry, Cookies & Cream or Chocolate.
After having taken Promax for approximately 3 months I have noticed an increase in my strength and my physical size after regularly playing rugby and participating in weight training.
However, taking Maximuscle Promax over a prolonged period of time is extremely costly, therefore I have recently switched to MyProtein True Whey which is half the price. Promax is a great supplement, if you can afford the high price tag.
I purchased strawberry in the shake powder, mainly because chocolate wasn't available at the time.
Now I'm not a fan of milkshakes or anything strawberry flavoured (except for McDonald strawberry shakes obviously lol), but this shake is very nice. My husband who is something of a milkshake connoisseur tried it today and said it tasted just like the ordinary strawberry milkshakes you can buy in the supermarket.
I find it very easy to drink. I will be honest, I was expecting it to be like drinking a barium meal **gags** but it was not like this at all.
I will say that although you can mix it with just water, done this way I find it just tastes of nothing but water, which is odd because if I mix it with skimmed milk it has quite a strong strawberry taste.
It's sweet enough, definitely not sickly.
My favourite way to take it though is by mixing it with 0% fat plain Greek yoghurt....it's like homemade thick creamy strawberry yoghurt.
It does made a difference to my workout performance....I'm a ShaunT Insanity and Asylum girl, so my workouts are very intense. This has made a huge difference.
I have experienced no bloating with this product either, something protein powders on general do, but this lack of bloating is one of the reasons I chose the brand maximuscle
On a side note, especially for women....Read more ›
