Product Information

Description

Performance Series
Whey Isolate+ Lean Muscle Builder
Whey Isolate & Peptides Primary Source
Builds 70% More Lean Muscle Than Regular Whey*
Amplifies Recovery, Performance & Strength*
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 and whey peptides – two of the cleanest and purest protein sources available to athletes. Other whey protein supplements might have only a few grams of these highly bioavailable and easily digested proteins. NITRO-TECH® is also enhanced with the most studied form of creatine for even better gains in muscle and strength.*
Each scoop of NITRO-TECH® contains a research-proven dose (3g) 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 1-rep max bench press by 34lbs, compared to only 14lbs for subjects using regular whey protein.*
A single scoop of NITRO-TECH® contains 30g of protein, primarily from whey protein isolate and whey peptides, with only 4g of carbs and 2.5g 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.
Every flavor of NITRO-TECH® won in head-to-head third-party taste tests against leading competitors.
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.
