Muscle Tech Nitro-Tech Review
Nitro-Tech is a protein supplement mainly designed for serious bodybuilders and athletes who struggle to get enough protein needed for their workouts. This review examines Muscle Tech Nitro-Tech’s promises that it contains a unique and enhanced whey protein formula that builds 70% more lean muscle than regular whey and amplifies recovery as well as performance and strength. This product comes in an assortment of delicious flavors like Vanilla, Brownie Cheesecake, and Cinnamon Swirl and prides themselves in providing 30 grams of protein per serving, which they claim to be more than any other brand of protein powder on the market.
- L-Leucine (as Whey Protein, L-Leucine) – 3.2 g
- L-Isoleucine (as Whey Protein, L-Isoleucine) – 1.9 g
- L-Valine (as Whey Protein, L-Valine) – 1.8 g
- Creatine monohydrate – 3 g
Nitro-Tech comes in a variety of flavors with different ingredients. The ingredients listed above are a list of common active key ingredients per one scoop (44 g) of protein powder. They market that they have 30 grams of protein per serving, however, when we researched this further we found that independent lab studies found that Nitro-Tech actually contains closer to 20 grams of protein per serving.
The following are only some of the inactive ingredients for the Decadent Brownie Cheesecake:
- Palm Oil
- Tapioca Starch
- Sodium Bicarbonate
- Soy Lecithin
- Silicon Dioxide
Nitro-Tech recommends mixing one scoop of powder in 6 oz. or two scoops in 12 oz. of cold water or skim milk, in a glass or in a protein shaker bottle. For optimal results, they advise taking 4 scoops a day and drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water and to take between meals and after exercise.
Nitro-Tech offers on their website a 1-pound bottle for $16.99, a 2.2-pound bottle for $34.99 and a 5.5-pound bottle for $59.99.
Possible Side Effects
Nitro-Tech does not have any side effects reported on their official website, however, when we did further research we found there to be an extensive list of alarming side effects experienced by consumers of Nitro-Tech. Some side effects reported were gas and bloating caused by the dairy in the whey protein Nitro-Tech prides itself in, as well as high blood pressure, kidney damage, liver dysfunction, and nausea.
It is highly advised to consult a doctor before taking Nitro-Tech powder.
Muscle Tech offers a 30-day money back guarantee on their manufacturer’s website only for unopened bottles and they have no return policy for any opened bottles. This is unfortunate as it doesn’t give you much of a chance to try out the product risk-free.
Muscle Tech Nitro-Tech Review – The Bottom Line
We were very impressed that Nitro-Tech contains a stellar blend of ingredients and have a high-level of protein which is ultimately the key to gaining muscle weight. Nitro-Tech also contains 3 grams of creatine per serving which studies have shown is effective and just as essential as protein in building body muscle. However, there were several issues that came up in our studies that were a cause for concern. With an estimated 75% of the world being lactose intolerant we were shocked that they did not disclose any side effects on their website as the whey protein they take much pride in is a huge trigger for IBS for those who are lactose intolerant. They also do not disclose an additional list of possible side effects ranging from nausea to potentially fatal liver and kidney failure. What steered us away the most from this product was the fact that independent studies showed that one serving does not contain 30 grams of protein like they claim. For the hefty prices they list, consumers want to know that they are getting what they are paying for and with research showing that they are in fact, not, it steers us away from this product.
