Description

WHEY ISOLATE + LEAN MUSCLEBUILDER
  • Ultra-Pure Whey Isolate Primary Source
  • Enhanced with Creatine and Aminos
  • Superior to other Whey Protein Formulas
If you’re serious about performance and results, you need the ALL NEW MuscleTech® Performance Series!
  • NO Proprietary Blends
  • NO Fillers
  • NO Underdosed Key Ingredients
  • NO Hype
  • NO Banned Substances (WADA)
  • NO Exceptions
The Most Powerful Protein Formula Ever Developed
NITRO-TECH® is a scientifically engineered whey isolate+ lean musclebuilder formula designed for all athletes who are looking for more muscle, more strength and better performance. NITRO-TECH® contains protein sourced primarily from whey protein isolate – one of the cleanest and purest protein sources available to athletes. Other whey protein supplements might have only a few grams of this highly bioavailable and easily digested protein. NITRO-TECH® is also enhanced with the most studied form of creatine for faster gains in muscle and strength.
  • Build More Lean Muscle Than Regular Whey Protein
    Research conducted and published in a scientific journal shows that subjects using the core formula in NITRO-TECH® gained 8.8 lbs. of lean muscle in six weeks compared to subjects who used regular whey protein, who gained 5.1 lbs.
  • Rapid Post-Workout Amino Acid Delivery
    In addition to its key musclebuilding ingredients, NITRO-TECH® is the first protein to contain all three key free-form amino acids (alanine, glycine and taurine) and is designed to deliver essential amino acids and proteinogenic (protein building) amino acids that are quickly digested and absorbed by your bloodstream – aiding in muscle cell repair and growth and helping to make NITRO-TECH® the perfect choice for rapid post-workout amino acid delivery.

    Alanine is the second-most widely used amino acid in protein synthesis, after leucine, and is the primary amino acid for the production of usable glucose during intense training. Experts believe that supplementing with alanine post-workout can help combat muscle breakdown and promote protein synthesis.
  • Glycine is an amino acid which has been noted to play a role in the formation of many other biological compounds in the body, such as proteins and creatine, and even supports cell volumization.Taurine is the second-most abundant amino acid found in muscle and aids in cell volumization.
  • Build More Strength Than Regular Whey ProteinEach scoop of NITRO-TECH® contains a research-proven dose (3 grams) of creatine monohydrate. Combined in NITRO-TECH®, whey protein and creatine build more strength than regular whey protein. In one study, subjects using the whey/creatine combination in NITRO-TECH® increased their one-rep max bench press by 34 pounds, compared to only 14 pounds for subjects using regular whey protein.
  • Ultra-Clean Protein Formula
    A single scoop of NITRO-TECH® contains 30 grams of protein, primarily from whey protein isolate, ultra-filtered whey protein concentrate and hydrolyzed whey protein isolate, with only 1 gram of carbs and 1.5 grams of fat! Most protein powders deliver significantly less protein per scoop while some protein formulas are loaded with fat and carbs. The whey protein in NITRO-TECH® has been filtered using Multi-Phase Filtration Technology for less fat, lactose and impurities than cheaper protein sources.
  • Best-In-Class Taste
    Every flavor of NITRO-TECH® won in head-to-head third-party taste tests against leading competitors.
  • Get More for Your Money
    Unlike the competition, Performance Series products contain superior key ingredients in clinically dosed amounts that are fully disclosed so you know exactly what you are paying for.

Health Notes

Cinnamon

Cinnamon
This 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:

Type 2 Diabetes
Dose: 1 to 6 grams dailyTest tube studies have suggested that cinnamon may improve glucose utilization. In a study of people with type 2 diabetes, supplementing with cinnamon in the amount of 1, 3, or 6 grams per day for 40 days was significantly more effective than a placebo at reducing blood glucose levels.1 The reduction averaged 18 to 29% in the three treatments groups, and 1 gram per day was as effective as 3 and 6 grams per day. The benefits of cinnamon for lowering blood sugar levels was confirmed in a double-blind study.2 However, in two other double-blind studies, cinnamon was not more effective than a placebo.3, 4 The different results in these studies may have been due in part to differences in body weight, initial blood sugar levels, and medication use among the different populations studied.

Indigestion, Heartburn, and Low Stomach Acidity
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Carminatives (also called aromatic digestive tonics or aromatic bitters) may be used to relieve symptoms of indigestion, particularly when there is excessive gas. It is believed that carminative agents work, at least in part, by relieving spasms in the intestinal tract.1

There are numerous carminative herbs, including European angelica root (Angelica archangelica), anise, Basil, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, coriander, dill, ginger, oregano, rosemary, sage, lavender, and thyme.2 Many of these are common kitchen herbs and thus are readily available for making tea to calm an upset stomach. Rosemary is sometimes used to treat indigestion in the elderly by European herbal practitioners.3 The German Commission E monograph suggests a daily intake of 4-6 grams of sage leaf.4 Pennyroyal is no longer recommended for use in people with indigestion, however, due to potential side effects.

Yeast Infection
Dose: Refer to label instructions

The essential oil of cinnamon contains various chemicals that are believed to be responsible for cinnamon's medicinal effects. Important among these compounds are eugenol and cinnamaldehyde. Cinnamaldehyde and cinnamon oil vapors exhibit extremely potent antifungal properties in test tubes.1 In a preliminary study in people with AIDS, topical application of cinnamon oil was effective against oral thrush.2

Menorrhagia
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Cinnamon has been used historically for the treatment of various menstrual disorders, including heavy menstruation.1 This is also the case with shepherd's purse (Capsella bursa-pastoris).2 Other herbs known as astringents (tannin-containing plants that tend to decrease discharges), such as cranesbill, periwinkle, witch hazel, and oak, were traditionally used for heavy menstruation. Human trials are lacking, so the usefulness of these herbs is unknown. Black horehound was sometimes used traditionally for heavy periods, though this approach has not been investigated by modern research.

Colic
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Several gas-relieving herbs used in traditional medicine for colic are approved in Germany for intestinal spasms.1 These include yarrow, garden angelica (Angelica archangelica),peppermint, cinnamon, and fumitory (Fumaria officinalis). These herbs are generally given by healthcare professionals as teas or decoctions to the infant. Peppermint tea should be used with caution in infants and young children, as they may choke in reaction to the strong menthol.
