Description


Met-Rx’s Meal Replacement is the original and best selling protein drink mix specially engineered for athletes and fitness enthusiasts. It features an exclusive Metamyosyn protein blend, complex carbohydrate maltodextrin, glutamine and 27 essential vitamins and minerals. Met-Rx was the first protein meal replacement powder formulated to support muscle mass and muscle glycogen (stored energy) needs.

Met-Rx delivers 37 grams of high-quality protein derived from milk protein concentrate, whey protein and casein. The Metamyosyn blend was developed by a physician based on metabolic research to help support muscle mass. Research suggests that a combination of fast-acting whey and slow-acting casein results in a more prolonged protein absorption rate. Glutamine is a conditionally essential amino acid if demand (such as intense exercise) exceeds the body’s ability to produce it. This concentrated blend of proteins and amino acids supports muscle growth, repair and performance.

Met-Rx’s maltodextrins are 100% complex carbs that help preserve muscle glycogen levels, decrease muscle fatigue and extend endurance and performance. Maltodextrins help prevent muscle breakdown after workouts and support nitrogen retention (stored muscle protein). Met-Rx Meal Replacement offers a convenient way for athletes to support daily protein and nutrient requirements.
