MET-Rx® Original Meal Replacement Powder is the foundational supplement for all athletes looking to improve their overall health and physique. Why take chances with your meal replacement – trust the clinically studied METAMYOSYN® protein blend.

THE SECRET IS THE SOURCE OF PROTEIN!
METAMYOSYN® protein, based on metabolic research to help support lean muscle mass, was originally developed by a physician and has been studied in three published clinical trials. In a groundbreaking study, subjects using MET-Rx® Original Meal Replacement twice per day gained more muscle and strength over 12 weeks than a group receiving whey protein only supplements.

METAMYOSYN® protein is a superior quality blend which combines premium casein with whey and milk proteins, plus L-Glutamine and naturally occurring Branched Chain Amino Acids – Isoleucine, Leucine and Valine. The precise combination of proteins in METAMYOSYN® provides your body with a highly bioavailable fuel to meet your nutritional needs.

Research 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. Milk protein naturally contains both whey and casein – to provide slow and fast-digesting properties.

Supplement Facts

For adults, add one (1) packet to 16-20 fl. ounces of cold water or milk and mix thoroughly in a shaker or blender. Increase or decrease the amount of liquid to achieve desired consistency. Drink two shakes per day for best results. As a reminder, discuss the supplements and medications you take with your health care providers.

For Mass Gaining: add higher calorie foods such as peanut butter, 1-2% milk, and fruit juices.
For Dieters: add lower calories foods such as skim milk or just use water.

Use MET-Rx® Meal Replacement 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® Meal Replacement makes it a perfect before-bed supplement as it provides “time-released” amino acid delivery to your body while you sleep.

Health Notes

Amino Acids Help Maintain Muscles After Knee Replacement

Amino Acids Help Maintain Muscles After Knee Replacement
Amino Acids Help Maintain Muscles After Knee Replacement : Main Image
People taking amino acids lost significantly less thigh muscle mass after surgery
Taking an amino acid supplement before and after knee replacement surgery might help prevent some of the muscle loss that is a common side effect of the procedure, according to a study in the Journal of Clinical Investigation.

New knees

Total knee replacement surgery is a viable option for many people living with pain and disability from severe knee arthritis. The surgery has a high success rate, with most knee replacements lasting upwards of 20 years.

An important part of the rehabilitation process following total knee replacement is strengthening the leg muscles that support the knee joint. As with any period of immobilization, the lesser-used muscles quickly lose mass and strength. Loss of strength in the thigh muscles limits mobility and puts people at higher risk for falls. Therapies that minimize these losses have the potential to speed healing time and decrease complications after surgery.

Amino acids make muscles

Amino acids are the building blocks for protein synthesis in the body. In the first study of its kind, 28 people (average age 69 years) were given 20 grams of essential amino acids or placebo two times per day for one week before and two weeks after total knee replacement surgery. The participants' functional mobility and thigh muscle mass were assessed before surgery and two and six weeks postoperatively.

  • People in the placebo group lost significantly more thigh muscle mass (14% at two weeks and 18% at six weeks) than the amino acid group, who lost 3% after two and 6% after six weeks.
  • The amino acid group performed significantly better on most functional mobility tests, including timed stair climbing and up-and-go (a person's ability to sit in a chair, stand, walk a short distance, and return to a seated position) tests.
  • There was no difference in the six-minute walking distance between the groups.

"Our results clearly demonstrate that a reduction in muscle breakdown occurred in the amino acid group compared with the placebo group," said lead study author, Hans Dreyer. "These results offer preliminary evidence in support of a role for amino acid treatment and increased protein consumption to offset muscle loss and functional mobility impairments following total knee replacement."

Get back to living faster

Knee replacement surgery may help people with significant damage in one or both knees resume healthy activities that osteoarthritis is interfering with, such as low-impact sports like golfing, swimming, and biking.

To heal faster after surgery, try these tips:

  • Stay active. Your doctor will prescribe physical therapy to help you recover, often starting on the day of surgery. Continuous passive motion machines (a specialized therapeutic device) allow you to gradually increase the range of motion in the joint and enhance circulation to the area, speeding healing time and return to normal function.
  • Time your protein intake. Taking an amino acid supplement or having a high-protein snack within one hour of physical therapy or other exercise may lead to greater muscle gains.
  • Think about a supplement. Several nutrients, including vitamin C, glutamine, zinc, and turmeric may decrease inflammation, help prevent infections, and promote healing after surgery.
