How does it work?
A Promax Meal meal replacement gives you all the convenience of a fast food without the excess calories, saturated fat and unhealthy sugars. It's like taking a shopping basket full of food, and extracting the lean protein, vitamins, minerals and fibre, and putting it all in one place. Meal replacement sachets make it easy and simple to feed your body with the nutrients you need to lose fat and build muscle.

BIOMAX™ whey protein
Many weight gainers use casein, soya, or egg protein as their main protein source. Promax Meal contains a blend of whey protein known as BIOMAX™, which is known to stimulate protein synthesis and increase muscle growth [2]. Several of the high-quality whey proteins found in Promax Meal have been used in both animal and human feeding studies, where they have been shown to promote muscle gain, elevate glutathione levels (an antioxidant), and improve exercise performance.

Of the two main protein sources found in milk (casein and whey) most studies show that whey protein provides the greatest benefit in terms of muscle growth and exercise performance. In one trial carried in the Journal of Applied Physiology, Canadian scientists found that after three months of supplementation, whey protein was more effective at improving exercise performance than casein [4]. The whey protein group also lost body fat, and reported feeling far more energetic.

There are several different types of whey protein. These are known as whey protein concentrates, whey protein isolates and hydrolyzed whey protein. In general, a whey protein isolate will contain more protein and less carbohydrate (as lactose) and fat compared to a concentrate. One hundred grams of whey protein concentrate, for example, contains roughly 80 grams of protein. The composition of a whey protein isolate is slightly different, containing slightly more protein (90 grams of protein per 100 grams of powder) and less carbohydrate and fat. A hydrolyzed whey protein is one that's been partially "predigested" by being broken down into smaller pieces.

Scientists from Australia report that a whey protein isolate (similar to the whey protein blend contained in Promax Meal) is far superior to casein for muscle growth [8]. Thirteen subjects were given either whey isolate or casein while they took part in a weight-training program for ten weeks. Results showed that the 100% whey isolate was more effective at increasing muscle mass. Test subjects using whey gained over 10 pounds of muscle, while those using casein gained only 2 pounds. Those using whey also gained more strength, although both proteins seemed to prevent the typical drop in plasma glutamine levels that occurs with exercise.

Complex carbohydrate
Simple carbohydrates such as fructose, or sucrose (which is just table sugar) are included in virtually all meal replacements to keep the cost down. Promax Meal uses maltodextrin, an easily digestible complex carbohydrate made from natural corn starch. The starch is cooked, and then broken down into smaller polymers (a process similar to that used by the body to digest carbohydrate). Maltodextrins are sometimes called glucose polymers. As a complex carbohydrate, maltodextrin is especially effective for people who want to gain weight in the form of muscle rather than excess fat.

Medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are fats with an unusual chemical structure that allows your body to digest them easily. Most fats are broken down in the intestine and remade into a special form that can be transported in the blood. But MCTs are absorbed intact and taken to the liver, where they are used directly for energy. Your body deals with MCTs in much the same way it deals with carbohydrates [3]. MCTs are unique in that they can be used by people wanting to gain weight and muscle without gaining fat.
How do I use it?
Promax Meal can be used by anyone wanting to lose fat or build muscle. If you want to build more lean muscle, consume two Max-Meal High-Protein sachets daily in addition to your normal meals. If you want to lose fat, simply replace two normal meals with two Max-Meal High-Protein sachets.
What results can I expect?
Promax Meal will help to take the guesswork out of eating a high-protein, low-fat diet, and will save you both time and effort.
