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 TasteEvery flavor of NITRO-TECH® won in head-to-head third-party taste tests against leading competitors.
  • Get More for Your MoneyUnlike 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

Whey Protein

Whey Protein
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:

Athletic Performance
Dose: 20 grams daily up to 1.2 grams of per 2.2 of pounds body weight per day
Animal studies suggest that whey protein can increase gains in lean body mass resulting from exercise. One study found that people taking whey protein improved their performance on a test of short-term intense cycling exercise.(more)
Immune Function
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Whey protein appears to improve some aspects of immune function. One trial showed that whey protein increased blood glutathione levels in a group of HIV-infected people.(more)
HIV and AIDS Support
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Whey protein is rich in the amino acid cysteine, which the body uses to make glutathione, an important antioxidant. Supplementing with it may improve immune function.(more)
Osteoporosis
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Some whey proteins may reduce bone loss. Milk basic protein (MBP) is a mixture of some of the proteins found in whey protein and has been shown to promote bone density(more)
Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Whey protein may aid weight loss due to its appetite-suppressing effect.(more)
Athletic Performance
Dose: 20 grams daily up to 1.2 grams of per 2.2 of pounds body weight per day

Animal studies suggest that whey protein can increase gains in lean body mass resulting from exercise.1 A controlled trial found that six weeks of strength training while taking 1.2 grams of whey protein per 2.2 of pounds body weight per day resulted in greater gains in lean body mass, but improved only one out of four strength tests.2 Another controlled study found that people taking 20 grams per day of whey protein for three months performed better on a test of short-term intense cycling exercise than people taking a similar amount of milk protein (casein).3 However, a double-blind trial found that men taking 1.5 grams per 2.2 lbs of body weight per day of predigested whey protein for 12 weeks along with a strength training exercise program gained only half as much lean body mass and had significantly smaller increases in strength compared with men using a similar amount of predigested casein along with strength training.4 A controlled study of HIV-infected women found that adding whey protein to strength training exercise was no more effective than exercise alone for increasing strength or improving body composition.5

Osteoporosis
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Some whey proteins may reduce bone loss.1 Milk basic protein (MBP) is a mixture of some of the proteins found in whey protein. A preliminary trial found that 300 mg per day of MBP improved blood measures of bone metabolism in men, suggesting more bone formation was occurring than bone loss.2 A double-blind trial found that women taking 40 mg per day of MBP for six months had greater gains in bone density compared with those taking a placebo.3 No osteoporosis-related research has been done using complete whey protein mixtures.

Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Whey protein may aid weight loss due to its effect on appetite. In a preliminary study, people were given 48 grams of either whey protein or milk protein (casein). Whey consumption resulted in more hunger satisfaction and reduced the amount of food eaten 90 minutes later compared with casein consumption.1 However, a double-blind study found that men taking 1.5 grams per 2.2 lbs body weight per day of whey protein for 12 weeks along with a low-calorie diet and a strength training exercise program lost the same amount of weight and body fat as did a control group that followed a similar program, but took a casein supplement instead of whey protein.2

Whey protein is a mixture of some of the proteins naturally found in milk. The major proteins found in whey protein include beta-lactoglobulin and alpha-lactalbumin. Whey protein has one of the highest protein digestibility-corrected amino acid scores (PDCAAS; a measure of protein bioavailability) and is more rapidly digested than other proteins, such as casein (another milk protein). 1

        Definately noticed a gain in muslce after about 3 weeks of using this product plus recovery time was pretty good. Gained 4lbs of muscle. Usually use this product before my work out and then drink muscle milk after. Using both before and after a work out would be really good. I definately recommend this product if you are looking to gain muscle. Take note i usually workout about 3-4 times a week for about 1.5hrs each time.

                    This was one of the best, if not the best protein powders I have tried, and I have tried a lot. The taste was some what comparative to Nestle Quick and chocolate malt combined. Great protein powder for recovery after workout and a daily weight loss routine.
