Met Rx Meal Replacement Review

Met-Rx - The Original Meal Replacement Mix

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? Read on and learn more about Met Rx meal replacement.

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 quite good.

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 thrown in.

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 around $50. Shop online and you can save over $15 bucks.
