Myoplex Original Meal Replacement Powder Provides All the Nutrition of a Regular Meal and More!

To maximize the muscle-building and fat-burning effects of exercise, your daily diet must include a wide range of nutrients that allow your body to recover from strenuous activity. But preparing time-consuming meals containing precise amounts of nutrients day-in and day-out can be difficult, even for the most dedicated fitness enthusiast. That's why EAS created Myoplex. Myoplex meal replacements provide a simple solution, taking the guesswork out of eating right every day.

It all starts with protein!

Studies show that people who work out intensely need more protein than the average person, as much as one gram per pound of body weight per day. So, if you weigh 170 pounds, you may need to consume up to 170 grams of protein per day. You can and should get some of that protein from lean meats like chicken and fish, as well as other food sources. But to get all the protein your new, more active lifestyle requires, nutritional supplementation is the only way to go.

Myoplex is the best way to make sure you get the protein and nutrients you need. Every serving delivers 42 grams of high-quality protein. Substituting Myoplex for two or three of the six small meals you should consume each day makes it easy to achieve your daily protein intake goals. This unique formula also includes cell volumizing amino acids, L-glutamine and taurine. Each serving contains 22-24 grams of carbohydrates and only 2-4.5 grams of fat!

In addition, Myoplex delivers essential vitamins and minerals. One serving delivers up to 50% or more of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of up to 28 antioxidants that may aid in recovery from vigorous training and support cellular repair and immune function.

Q: How much lactose is in the Myoplex shake?
A: There is very little lactose at all. Myoplex is 99% lactose free.

Q: Does Myoplex contain any wheat or rice products, or any yeast?
A: No it does not. Anyone with allergies to these particular substances should be OK using Myoplex shakes.

Q: What is the best source of protein?
A: What makes this argument complex is that different proteins have different merits: for example, some proteins are high in key amino acids; some proteins maximize protein retention, some minimize fat-storage hormones. The current thinking on this topic is that the best protein source is a combination of proteins. Using a blend of proteins, one can take advantage of the different merits, or "functional qualities" of many proteins. Several proteins combined tend to "balance" one another. While one type of protein may be low in a particular amino acid, this may be the strength of a different type of protein. This is the premise behind MyoPro (and its variants), the protein blend used in Myoplex powders. MyoPro is also fortified with several key amino acids (taurine, L-glutamine, and a glutamine precursor, AKG), which further strengthens the amino acid profile of the protein blend.

Q: Why does Myoplex contain partially-hydrogenated canola oil? Aren't hydrogenated fats (or trans-fatty acids) bad for your cholesterol?
A: The hydrogenated oil in the Myoplex is in the formula to serve as a texturing agent. There is approximately 0.5 g of the oil present, and in those quantities, should not have any significant effect on cholesterol levels.

Q: I am extremely sensitive to wheat. Do any of the natural flavors or mono-diglycerides in Myoplex contain traces of wheat?
A: No. Even people who are very sensitive to wheat (such as Celiac patients) may be able to use Myoplex. However, anybody with medical conditions should consult their doctor before using any of our products.

Q: I heard that the FDA lists phenylalanine as a dangerous product on their website. Is this true?
A: No, it is actually Phenylpropanolamine that the FDA considers to be dangerous. Phenylalanine is an amino acid; a constituent of every complete protein, including all meats (chicken, beef, turkey), and dairy products such as milk. Phenylalanine is in no way a dangerous product, and is actually essential for tissue health.

Q: Would Myoplex be considered "kosher" or suitable for vegans?
A: No and no. Myoplex is not tested or approved by a rabbinical oversight committee, and the fact that it contains milk protein derivatives would make it unsuitable for strict vegans.
