Product description

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: cocoa, betain hydrochloride, patented zinc stabilised purified prolase preparation derived from carica papaya, glutamine peptides, n-acetyl-cysteine (NAC), taurine, 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.

Taste was a little different to what I expected, not so much cookies and cream really more like a weird vanilla waffer. If you don't put enough water in then it tends to catch my throat a little.

This is probably one of the best whey protein powders on the market. When used with milk tastes exactly like milkshake and for the amount you get in this tub, it is a bargain as well!! in shops this would cost loads more to buy. Will buy again defiantly. Been using for about a month now, can defiantly see and feel the difference

I've been using whey protein for a long time, off and on, and have always gotten positive results with it. Its a non essential protein that enhances your body greatly. It can be found in a body naturally, but it becomes depleted in individuals whom are heavy in weight training or endurance training.

Its not a supplement that will increase your muscle size or strength drastically, but it does give you that extra edge when it comes to recovery and muscle fatigue. For me, its a core part in my supplementation routine. No need to really cycle it either and given the amount you get for the price, its very realistic for the avg. to take this stuff year round.

For lifters, I suggest looking into complimentary supplements as well. My preference is cycling with whey and MMP; Muscle Maxx Pro + FREE L-Arginine (Nitric Oxide Booster) 250 Grams. It contains another one of those nonessential amino acids and it plays a pretty big role in nitrogen balance and metabolic processes - which translates into a massive amount of blood being shot into your muscles once contracted.

I train a lot longer and hardly ever got that lactic acid burn on arm days, at least it takes a heck of lot more to phase me. Even my cardio is easier on it too. I'd recommend it along with glutamine any day of the week specifically because it is actually partly synthesized from glutamine which means taking them together increases effects across the board.

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

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

The only reason it doesn't get a five is because of the flavour really. Although it is bearable it doesn't taste like full on strawberry to me when I mix it with water, which is understandable. I've started using this to avoid eating protein high in calories and saturated fats, and it does help a lot. Recovery is much improved and can feel a noticeable difference in strength after using the powder for a few weeks.
