Cytodyne Methoxy Pro Review
There's a lot of hype and media
around Methoxy Pro, being touted 'the biggest break
through in bodybuilding supplements.' Is it really
that great? Let's find out.
We all know Cytodyne is a pretty good company
with some solid, high quality supplement products - most notably, Xenadrine RFA-1 and EFX,
and like Xenadrine, Methoxy Pro is another big hit among bodybuilders.
If you read our price shopper's protein
powders comparison guide, you'll see that Methoxy Pro is the
most expensive (by proteins) of the protein powders compared.
All these proteins have "proprietary"
formulas, as they claim, so it's hard to say which is the best,
and since protein is what you're after, the best comparison is
based on protein content.
Cytodyne Methoxy Pro - The Details
Let's take a quick look at what's
in a serving: 130 calories, 4g carbs, and 23g of protein
- all in all, pretty standard, and nothing spectacular.
What really stands out is the use of two very anabolic
(muscle building) compounds: Ipriflavone and Methoxyisoflavone,
and the blend of amino acids Cytodyne has added into
Methoxy Pro which include: Glutamine, Taurine, Glycine,
Arginine, Phenylalanine etc...
Ipriflavone and Methoxyisoflavone were discovered
in the 70's by Chinoin, a respected Hungarian company. Ipriflavone
helps move nutrients into muscle tissues, and reduce body fat
levels. It also enhance protein synthesis and nitrogen retention
Methoxyisoflavone is shown to be even more anabolic
than Ipriflavone. Clinical trials had shown that it
reduced cortisol levels, increase protein synthesis,
and nitrogen retention, helping speed up recovery,
and leading to greater muscle and strength gains.
A host of amino acids are also added. These
amino acids help enhance the effects of anabolism
such as Glutamine, Taurine, Arginine, etc... I won't
go in detail about each, but you can read a whole
article about Glutamine
MethoxyPro Taste Test
On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd have
to only give it a 6, maybe 6.5. It's not going to
be the best tasting protein supplement you taste.
This is very much a performance targeted protein supplement,
and there are very few 'filler' ingredients to make
it taste good. If you want something that tastes good,
this isn't for you. I didn't enjoy the taste all that
much, and many others will attest to that as well
- but it doesn't taste horrid or anything...
Price-wise, Cytodyne Methoxy Pro isn't
the cheapest. At retail, a 2lb bucket costs you around $55
to $60 bucks, which is pretty expensive. Follow the link
bellow, and you can save yourself some money.
