The food you put into your body can have a big impact on how you look, feel and work out. MET-Rx Protein Plus® was invented to give you the competitive advantage – especially when it comes to quality protein! Each high-protein serving provides better than a 5:1 ratio of protein to carbs to help meet your nutritional goals. Best of all, MET-Rx Protein Plus® contains no added sugar, corn syrup solids, mono- or diglycerides and now is free of aspartame and hydrogenated oils – which means no trans-fats!
The Secret is in the Protein Source!
The renowned MET-Rx® protein formulation consists of METAMYOSYN®, which combines premium whey protein isolates and casein proteins, plus L-Glutamine and naturally occurring Branched Chain Amino Acids – Isoleucine, Leucine and Valine. Studies show that whey is a fast-acting protein while casein is slow-acting, which results in a more prolonged absorption rate to extend the delivery of amino acids to muscles. MET-Rx Protein Plus® gives you a firm nutritional basis to help build lean muscle in a low-fat, great tasting formula.

- Supplement Facts
Add one to two (1-2) scoops of powder with 6-16 ounces of cold water or milk and mix thoroughly in a blender. Increase or decrease the amount of liquid to achieve desired consistency. Drink 1-2 servings per day. As a reminder, discuss the supplements and medications you take with your health care providers.
Use MET-Rx Protein Plus® any time of the day including:
Immediately After Exercise: Makes an excellent post-workout shake by providing fast digesting proteins for immediate muscle support plus slow digesting proteins for extended amino acid delivery and recovery.
With Meals: Drink along with your meal to increase the overall protein quality and content. You can also mix into oatmeal or add to recipes such as pancake and waffle mixes.
In Between Meals: Keeps levels of amino acids elevated so your body doesn’t go into a catabolic state that may otherwise lead to muscle loss.
Before Bed: The high content of slow-digesting proteins in MET-Rx Protein Plus® makes it a perfect before-bed supplement as it provides “time-released” amino acid delivery to your body.

- Health Notes
Rice ProteinRice ProteinThis nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
- Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
- Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
- For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.
Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.
For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.
This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:AtherosclerosisDose: Refer to label instructionsThough not yet proven in clinical research, animal studies suggest that rice protein-based diets result in less buildup of atherosclerotic plaque compared with animal protein-based diets.

Compared with other protein supplements, rice protein has more of the amino acid arginine, and since arginine is a vasodilator that can enhance blood flow to tissues, some athletes believe rice protein may also improve blood flow to muscle to enhance growth and repair. However, no research has investigated the effects of rice protein on athletic performance.ObesityDose: Refer to label instructionsDieters who are gluten or dairy sensitive and looking to supplement protein might consider rice protein, though its actual benefits for weight loss have not been studied.
Rice protein is extracted from rice and used in some protein supplements. Vegetarians may prefer it over protein supplements made from animal sources (such as whey or casein, which are milk proteins). Since rice is rarely involved in food allergies,1 rice protein may also be preferred by people with food allergies, and may be suitable to use in hypoallergenic infant formulas.2 Rice protein is not a complete protein, however, due to insufficient levels of the amino acids lysine and threonine.3, 4 Therefore, these amino acids are often added to rice protein products to correct this imbalance.
