Description

Optimum Nutrition's Nitrocore 24 is a full spectrum, sustained-release protein blend. This drink mix includes a protein blend, glutamine, sunflower oil, fiber blend, MCTs (medium chain triglycerides), sucralose, aminogen, carbogen and lactase. Nitrocore 24 delivers fast acting and slowly-digested proteins to promote lean muscle gain, energy and recovery.


Nitrocore 24 features 24 grams of fast-release and slow-release whey protein isolates, whey protein concentrates, milk protein isolate, milk protein concentrate, micellar casein, egg albumin and and calcium caseinates. Whey protein is a major protein in milk containing an optimal concentration of amino acids. Calcium caseinate is synthesized from dried skim milk and breaks down at a slower rate than whey protein. Together they provide sustained release action for AM to PM coverage and support positive nitrogen retention (stored muscle protein). Conditionally essential amino acid glutamine helps prevent muscle tissue breakdown and support muscle repair.


Nitrocore 24 provides 5 grams of dietary fiber including inulin. The probiotic inulin helps keep the intestinal tract functioning at peak efficiency.

Beneficial fats such as sunflower oil and MCTs synergistically promote fat metabolism and leanness. MCTs are more likely burned as muscle energy than stored as body fat. The addition of enzymes sucralose, aminogen, carbogen and lactase help ensure protein, carbohydrate and lactase (milk sugar) digestion without bloating or cramping.

Pros

Nitrocore 24 is a full spectrum, sustained-release protein blend designed for AM to PM coverage. It is instantized to mix easily.

Nitrocore 24 has the following benefits:

  • 24 grams of fast-release and slow-release proteins provide AM to PM coverage
  • Promotes positive nitrogen retention
  • Glutamine supports muscle repair and recovery
  • Healthy fats maximize leanness and fat metabolism

Cons

People who are allergic to dairy products should avoid whey protein.
Few side effects are associated with glutamine supplementation. However, mega-dosing with glutamine over an extended period of time may result in potential side effects such as diarrhea, weakness and nausea.

Some people may experience flatulence or diarrhea with inulin use.

Ingesting MCTs on an empty stomach can cause GI (gastrointestinal) upset.

People with pre-existing medical conditions or taking medication should not supplement with Nitrocore 24 without consulting a physician.

Be aware that some drugs may interact with Nitrocore 24 including but not limited to:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Cisplatin

I'm not a big fan of the sugary taste of most protein shakes I've taken, so I really like the more moderate taste of Nitrocore. Also doesn't feel to "heavy" when I drink it, it goes down pretty smoothly and works great.

Solid protein with overly sugary taste

I can recommend this product based on its nutritional profile. It has a lot of protein, little fat, and a medium amount of carbs. This makes for a great post workout shake.
As far as taste goes, its on the sweet side. It tastes like youd probably imagine-like fake sugary cinnamon roll.
On the bright side, it smells delicious, exactly like those cinnabon places. Better try it you will never regret.

This blend is working great for me. I've been using it for less than 2 weeks and have gained 4.5 lbs in muscle. I was into weight lifting in college but once I graduated and had to work I stopped. I still exercised but had lost a lot of muscle mass. So I did some research on a good blend and decided to try this one. I've been working out about 1 hour a night and taking a day off every 4th night and the results are amazing after only 5 workouts. It was little tough on my stomach for a day or two but I'm use to it now. I'm in the military so I've worked out for years without any protein blend, even while I was weight lifting in college. The advances I've made in a few workouts with this blend are greater than months of exercising without a supplement.

This is one of those few proteins that is actually pretty versatile while at the same time extremely high quality. I like to use this as a meal replacement in the morning, get twice the protein, half the fat, half the calories, and the same amount of fiber than i would if i had my normal breakfast. if i was not trying to lose weight, i would just take this with breakfast. it's just so good for you. guys like to use this to put on muscle, and honestly either way works very well. this keeps you full throughout the day, and the protein will keep digesting and being absorbed all day. So I highly recommend this product

I've really been impressed with the effects from working out and using Nitro core 24, it has a better taste than a lot of other protein supplements I've used, and quite a bit less sugar. I highly recommend Nitrocore 24 if you are looking to change up your protein supplement.
