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.

What is different about the new Nutriex plant-based Proteins powder?

The new Proteins is not only plant-based, it is now an excellent option for a wider range of people. We’ve taken out the whey protein, so those with dairy allergies, intolerances, or sensitivities can now enjoy it. We’ve also removed soy protein, which some women with breast cancer history wanted to avoid and which some men had an aversion to. Taking out soy protein also allows many with soy allergies to now consume Nutriex Proteins, as the soy-based lecithin does not trigger a reaction in all but the most sensitive people. Replacing the oat fiber with pea fiber allows our product to be gluten–free, so those who avoid gluten can now safely enjoy our product as well. Perhaps most importantly, however, is that the protein blend we’ve created still provides a more balanced amino acid profile. It not only contains all the essential amino acids (protein building blocks) at substantial levels, but our blend also contains considerable quantities of BCAAs (branched chain amino acids) which are necessary for maintenance of muscle. Another minor, but important change, is that we redesigned our packaging with a clog-free zipper that allows the bag to seal even if some of the Proteins powder gets in it.

Why isn't there whey in Nutriex Proteins?

While whey protein is one of the most popular sources of protein, we’ve seen a shift in philosophies about whether it is still one of the best protein sources. With regards to whey and dairy in general, we’re hearing more and more health advocates discourage its’ use. Many people also have allergies, sensitivities, and intolerances to dairy, so by removing the whey protein, we are able to offer a product that these people can consume. And, finally, we do believe in improving the sustainability of our planet and know that switching away from whey to plant-based protein sources is a step towards a better environment.

Keep in mind that many of the benefits of whey protein can be achieved with a blend of plant-based proteins. By combining multiple protein sources, we are able to strengthen the “weak areas” of whey as well as the other individual proteins to improve the overall protein/amino acid profile. The new Nutriex Proteins provides an excellent balance of amino acids and significant quantities of BCAAs for maintenance of muscle. In addition, it provides substantially higher levels of the amino acids that promote energy availability for exercise.

In addition, several research studies have shown that both rice and pea protein provide similar gains in strength and muscle mass (or thickness) when compared to whey protein. Pumpkin protein is new enough that no research has been published on its’ use as a supplement, but we have no reason to believe that it would be any less effective.

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. Focus on generous servings of vegetables and fruits, moderate quantities of high quality protein (whether animal or plant-based), 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.
