Rx Meal Replacement Review
Met-Rx - The Original Meal Replacement
Met Rx is a protein mix that's been around
for quite awhile, and many athletes use Met Rx to supplement
their workouts. Met Rx provides a good amount of proteins
with low levels of fat and calories. It uses Met Rx's proprietary
protein blend called the Metamyosyn Blend, which is a mix
of milk protein, casein protein, and whey protein.
This Proprietary blend by Met Rx is supposed
to be the optimal blend of proteins that promotes muscle
growth and enhances recovery. So is this really the case?

MetRx Taste Test
Taste wise, Met Rx isn't the best, nor
is it the worst - just some where in the middle. On the
plus side, it doesn't have any added sugars or artificial
sweeteners - so, no fillers to make it taste better. Which
really, in my opinion, is a good thing, because then you
know you're getting mostly good stuff. ;-)
I'm not fussy about taste, so I prefer
protein mixes that focus on content instead of appearance,
which is also why Isopure
Meal Replacement is high on my list.
I prefer just the original vanilla flavor.
As I said, it doesn't contain artificial sweeteners, so
this won't be as tasty as some other meal replacements,
but I like to mix this with chocolate milk, and it tastes

Compared to most other meal replacement
powders, Met Rx has relatively few calories and a comparable
amount of proteins. A serving contains 250 calories, 22

Rx is the overall nutritional value it provides. Take a
look - it contains sodium, potassium, and even dietary fiber.
Met Rx Proprietary Metamyosyn Blend
Now, let's get to the interesting part
- Metrx Proprietary Metamyosyn Blend. What the heck is this
Metamyosyn blend??? It's actually not that complicated -
it just sounds pretty good. ;-) Met Rx Metamyosyn blend
is a mix of milk, casein, and whey proteins, with some glutamine
So just how good is this Met Rx blend?
Metamyosyn was originally developed by Dr. Connelly, who
performed extensive post-medical surgical research. In short,
how well patients survived after surgery. He found that
RNA synthesis and protein transfer in myosin filament chains
achieved greatest sensitivity to nutritional intervention
- meaning that results were most noticeable, hence the name
Metamyosyn, and Met Rx is a 'treatment' for specific metabolic
requirements emphasizing intervention on the myosin filaments.
Why does this Metamyosyn blend work? Let's
look at the 2 main components: whey protein and casein protein.
Whey protein is digested and absorbed rapidly, which also
fills your blood with more amino acids rapidly, but this
effect doesn't last long. So Whey protein is quick in, quick
out. Increase in amino acid blood levels inhibits muscle
breakdown and stimulates protein synthesis. However, research
has shown that whey protein is oxidized (burned up) as much
as it is used for protein synthesis, which means that less
of what amount of whey you take in is used to build muscle.
This is where casein protein comes in.
It make the Metamyosyn formula work more efficiently because
Casein proteins have slower rate of digestion and absorption,
this then gives it more time to fuel protein synthesis,
and less into energy production. So now, you can see how
Met Rx combining whey and casein makes a good combo for
energy production and protein synthesis.
At retail, a box of Met Rx will cost you
