Nitro Tech is scientifically engineered whey protein powder designed for anyone looking to build more muscle, improve their strength and enhance overall performance. NitroTech from MuscleTech contains pure whey protein isolate and peptides as the primary source. Every scoop provides 30 grams of ultra-pure whey protein and 6.9 grams of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) along with a strength-enhancing 3 gram dose of creatine. At MuscleTech we believe that you shouldn’t have to sacrifice macronutrients for results. The result is a great-tasting formula that doesn’t pack the extra sugar and carbs you’ll see in other protein powders. Nitro Tech gives you more protein per scoop and a better overall macronutrient profile.
I just received this product yesterday and have only tried it once so far. It tasted sweeter than I expected and had a strong artificial sweetener flavor. I measured the weight of the powder inside the scoop and it's reading 56g not the 44g that's listed on my container. Also the nutrition facts on my container did not match the one pictured on Amazon. The Amazon picture says you're getting 30g of protein for every 37g scoop (81% protein). My container says I'm getting 30g of protein for every 44g scoop (68% protein). This new formula also has more calories, saturated fat, cholesterol, and carbohydrates than the old formula. I hope Amazon will be able to update their photos to better inform their customers on the products they sell and I hope Muscletech will try to improve the consistency of their scoop to weight ratio.
After exhausting my supply of MuscleTech's Premium Whey Protein (Deluxe Chocolate), I decided to try something else. Amazon notified me of a deal regarding this product, and I was thrilled. It has 30g of protein and 3g of creatine per serving, and it's also produced by the same company. I didn't have any issues with the whey isolate that I took, so I decided to give Nitrotech a try, because what could possibly go wrong?The vanilla flavor tastes great, though it does leave a bit of an odd aftertaste. Performance wise, however, I didn't see much of a difference with this product compared to the whey isolate that I previously took. I didn't experience any elevated levels of energy while I was at the gym, and I also didn't recover any faster than I did prior to using this product. Have I made progress? Absolutely. But I would've made progress regardless of whether or not I use this protein powder.One major issue I have so far is that, for some unknown reason, this powder is giving me a major case of diarrhea. As I stated earlier in the review, I previously used MuscleTech's whey protein isolate, which gave me great results without any adverse side effects. Ever since I started consuming NitroTech whey, however, I've been shitting two to three times a day! Diarrhea is squirting out of my ass like a water fountain! There have been days where I had to rush out of bed and bolt to the bathroom before I could wake my up my wife with some shitty news.There have also been days where I had to cut my workout short because I was on the verge of shitting my pants. I have a hard time doing squats now due to such fear. And as a result, leg days literally kicked the shit out of me.If there's ever been a better excuse to skip leg day, this is it.I still have about 12 servings left in the container, and I don't want to throw it away. After all, it was fairly expensive. But I will definitely go back to the whey isolate that I took previously.
Mixability - 8 out of 10. The product mixes well in a regular shaker cup. I don’t use a blender and very small clumps were left in the cup, but I didn’t mind them.Taste - 8 out of 10. I bought the cookies and cream flavor and it’s not bad. This is definitely an upgrade from my previous protein which was BPI, but not the best I’ve had.Pros - Low carbs, 30g of protein per serving, good taste and good mixability.Cons - Not the most effieicent protein powder per scoop, only 67% per scoop.I think this is a good bang for your buck. I bought this with an additional coupon that Amazon offered and paid just under $35. I will update this with a performance we after I finish it.
drinkability can be hard with whey but they got it right. the mocha cheesecake is a great flavor. mixes well and doesn't cause any stomach issues. the ingredient profile meets my needs and I know I am getting a good middle class or better product with muscletech.4 stars because it didnt blow my mind but it is good
Awesome flavor, and I love the nutritional profile. I especially like the fact that creatine is included, as it is a proven muscle volumizer.I usually mix this with milk, and it blends pretty well. Other times I will combine it with heavy whipping cream and organic cage-free eggs for a ketogenic treat. It's also great to blend with frozen fruit, peanut butter, etc. for a smoothie.
First off I was blown away by the flavors. All the ones I tried were delicious. It mixed well with water, milk, and coffee. Having bcaa's and glutamine make it work great pre and or post workout. I feel like I've been able to build more lean muscle with this protein than some of the others out there. Great product all around.
This is some tasty business here, I usually use EAS 100% Whey and this is nice for me because calories and protein levels are the same. However this is isolate based and mixes great in water. I recommend anyone try this out for the value of the protein alone, great stuff.
