Health Benefits

Speed Recovery

Athletes with an established baseline of optimal nutrition have a shorter treatment time and faster return to sport, up to a 25% reduction in time required compared to athletes experiencing nutritional deficiencies.

Improve Training Response

Rigorous training causes free radicals (reactive oxygen species) to collect in muscle, lungs and connective tissue. Rapid reversal of free radicals requires ample antioxidants, which may shorten the response time associated with athletic conditioning and recovery from injury and surgery.

Maximize Endurance Training

Endurance athletes require more key nutrients to maximize their training. Important supplementary nutrients include zinc, selenium, vitamin C, vitamin E, alpha lipoic acid, calcium, omega-3s flaxseed oil, magnesium and plant-derived antioxidants.

Avoid Permanent Damage

Athletes sometimes suffer later in life as a result of participation in a sport. Preventative nutritional support fuels natural pathways for healing cutting down on the risk of permanent disability.

Boost Immune Response

High physical stress can prolong recovery from viral illnesses. Optimal supply of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants is fundamentally important to maintaining an immune system.

Protect Connective Tissues

Cartilage

Healing of early cartilage injury is possible, but dependent on nutrient factors like glucosamine, chondroitin and vitamin E.

Tendons

Tendons are maintained by very few cells and these cells require anti-oxidants and collagen directed nutrients like vitamin C, zinc, copper, manganese and glucosamine. Tendon cells need “all the help they can get” especially during flexibility training. Major interruptions in tendon exercise (greater than 4 weeks) are undesirable and may lead to loss of tendon strength.

Ligaments

Ligament strength is nutritionally dependent. Similar to tendons, ligaments respond to regular training and optimal nutrition by becoming stronger and less susceptible to injury. The nutrients vitamin E, vitamin C and glucosamine are needed for optimal training response. Following injury healing ligaments have increased nutritional requirements. A six month recovery period may be necessary to regain adequate ligament strength.

Bone

Optimal nutritional allows bone to maximize its intrinsic strength during training by becoming more resistant to traumatic fractures, stress fractures and bone bruises. Bone depends not only on calcium and magnesium, but also the key nutrients vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin D, potassium, zinc, copper and manganese.

FAQ

Below you will find some of the most frequently asked questions about Nutriex products. If you have a question and don’t see the answer here, please feel free to Contact Us.

Should I consider switching from Nutriex Proteins to whey protein?

No, and here’s why… Whey protein is often touted as the “best” protein to buy. Our formulation, which once contained only whey for its protein source, has evolved to include several plant-based sources of protein as well. We did this for several reasons:

  1. Whey proteins can be high in both fat and cholesterol, neither of which is ideal for regular use.
  2. We found that by combining multiple sources of protein, including plant-based proteins, we were able to create a more balanced amino acid profile.

For comparison, let’s look at the quantity of 3 amino acids (protein building blocks) that are key for creatine formation (which increases ATP and energy available for exercise):

whey protein (25 g) 2 scoops Proteins (25 g of protein)
L-arginine 433 mg 1516 mg
Glycine 370 mg 843 mg
L-methionine 455 mg 452 mg

Our Proteins product far exceeds whey protein in 2 of the 3 amino acids, and is only slightly lower in L-methionine. The comparison is similar across the board. By combining multiple protein sources, we are able to strengthen the “weak areas” of whey as well as the other proteins. That’s the same rationale used by vegetarians who often combine rice and beans in a meal so that they provide their bodies with “complete” proteins.

Can Nutriex Proteins be used for weight reduction?

The label on Nutriex Proteins includes the statement: Use this product as a food supplement only. Do not use for weight reduction.

We include this notice on our label to follow regulatory requirements (specifically, CFR101.17(d)(3)). Because Nutriex Proteins contains more than half its calories from the protein in it and because it is not marketed specifically for weight reduction, we are required to include this on our label. If we marketed it for weight loss, the notice would be a lot longer and more complex.

Those who are striving to lose weight can include Nutriex Proteins as part of their diet. Be sure to balance your diet with generous servings of vegetables and fruits, moderate quantities of lean protein, and whole grains rather than refined (white) flour. Daily exercise is an important component in any weight loss program.

How long does a bag of protein last?

A bag of Nutriex Proteins contains 21 servings (2 scoops per serving) and costs $38.50 per bag.

Amino Acids

Excellent Amino Acids Profile

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. Because the body cannot make them, the 8 essential amino acids must be obtained from food sources.
Nutriex Proteins combines highest grade whey protein with lesser amount of soy and pea proteins to optimize the delivery of essential amino acids.
