PRO7EIN Synthesis™ is also enriched with BCAAs, N-Acetyl-L-Glutamine and all the Essential Amino Acids to aid in muscle recovery and prevent the breakdown of lean muscle. In addition, Colostrum has been added to this unmatched formula to assist in the building of lean muscle. Colostrum contains insulin like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) which is critical for stimulating muscle growth and im mun oglobulins, which are involved in immune functions.†
THE ADDITION OF AMINOGEN®: Aminogen,® a vital ingredient in high-quality protein supplements, is clinically proven (Journal of The International Society of Sports Nutrition) to increase the BCAAs from your protein by over 250%, raise your Amino Acid levels by over 100% and boost your Nitrogen Retention levels by an incredible 32% to dramatically stimulate protein synthesis and muscle growth. Aminogen® is a patented, Bio-Active Enzyme System which breaks down protein and greatly improves amino acid absorption which equates to greater results. A natural, plant-derived enzyme, Aminogen® is ideal for increasing lean body mass and strength and promoting deep muscle recovery. And Aminogen® does all this while supporting protein digestion.
And last but not least, the most-researched nitrogenous acid out there: Creatine (don’t worry about what “nitrogenous” means. It won’t be on the quiz). Well-known for its ability to help add muscle mass, its benefits don’t stop there. Creatine has a direct effect on ATP synthesis, the creation of cellular energy that helps boost strength and muscle cell volume. However, for years, many incorrectly assumed that creatine was best taken post-workout ONLY. Creatine IS great for muscle recovery and development via protein synthesis, but more results can be found by splitting creatine intake around the workout — before and after. Because of the significant gains that can be seen in strength, as well as the pump effect, creatine really is a great pre-workout product as well.
is comprised of a prominent 2:1 carbohydrate to protein ratio blend of P7 Protein Complex™ (Whey Protein Concentrate, Cross-Flow Microfiltered Whey Protein Isolate, Hydrolyzed Whey Protein Isolate, Hydrolyzed Casein, Potassium Caseinate, Micellar Casein, Egg Albumin) and C3 Carbohydrate Complex™ (Maltodextrin, Dextrose, Whole Grain Oats). *

Perfect for those early-morning starts where you don’t have time for coffee and breakfast — combine the two in a great shake instead. With instant coffee granules, Caramel Pretzel PRO7 and 1/2 C of milk (you can use almond or cashew milk, too), this one has an ice cream feel to it without any of the guilt. (Shoutout to Nutrishop CDA fan Christina Thompson for Nos. 4 and 5!)
Now, Aaron’s up over 200 pounds and pulled a 446-pound deadlift in March at a World Association of Bench Pressers and Deadlifters competition. He’s transformed himself from a sickly 120 pounds into a power-lifting machine with the help of NUTRISHOP. More remarkable about his performance at the WABDL event was that he didn’t have as much time as he thought he would — the competition was moved up a month. His take was to go anyway, figuring that if he didn’t show up, it was guaranteed nothing would happen. Instead, he went and turned in his best deadlift ever.
If a fruity flavor is more your style, there’s lots of options here as well. Vanilla protein powder works great, as does the banana flavor we carry — two scoops of either goes great with 1 C fat-free milk, some frozen blueberries, a small, ripe banana and 1 Tbsp. of chia seeds — be sure to let the whole shake settle for a couple minutes, to let the seeds set up and soften. The natural sugars in this shake make it a perfect choice post-workout.
One of the best combinations in human history is chocolate and peanut butter, and that is evident in this amazingly simple smoothie. With 1 C fat-free milk, 2 Tbsp. all-natural peanut butter, 2 scoops of chocolate protein powder (like or ), 2 tbsps flaxmeal and 1/2 C plain low-fat yogurt, it tastes so good that it’s hard to believe that there’s enough protein, fiber and calcium in this shake to make it a powerful breakfast or even dessert option.
The Journal of Nutrition identifies the superhero of BCAAs, leucine, as the only amino acid with the “capacity to stimulate muscle protein synthesis” — BCAAs help CREATE MORE MUSCLE. This is critical during your workout, when fibers are being torn microscopically as you perform resistance exercise. Because BCAAs bypass the liver and kidneys, their uptake is much faster into the muscle tissue itself. Even a fast-absorbing whey protein shake can’t stand up to BCAAs — branched-chain amino acids are into the muscles within 5 minutes. Sipping on them during your workout is simply a great, lightning-quick way to replenish your muscle fuel.
To that end, we started looking around the shop at all the different flavors of protein that we carry, and thought of just how many amazing shakes and smoothies we could make with these flavors — and then we wondered, what about our customers? This week, we want to highlight a shake or two a day to show you just how versatile protein powder can be for making delicious smoothies that will help you build muscle and burn fat.
PRO7EIN Synthesis™ is the most advanced, delicious tasting, time-released protein supplement available consisting of 7 of the most effective protein types in their purest form: WPI Protein Complex (Cross-Flow Microfiltered Whey Protein Isolate, Hydrolyzed Whey Protein Isolate), WPC5 Protein Complex™ (Whey Protein Concentrate, Hydrolyzed Casein, Potassium
Caseinate, Micellar Casein, Egg Albumin). Each type of protein is broken down and absorbed at a different rate, allowing your body to utilize the benefits of protein over an extended period of time of up to 8 hours.
