Gaspari Nutrition IntraPro Review by Matt Canning
I like to try as many different protein powders as possible and so the option of reviewing IntraPro by Gaspari Nutrition was something that I definitely looked forward to. Gaspari Nutrition "The Name you Trust, the Brand that Works" has proven with its long line of products that it is very effective and has very few products which are received poorly by critics. Rich Gaspari owns the company and from my vantage point, puts the same dedication and effort into creating cutting edge products that he put forward in his bodybuilding career where he will go down in history as one of the greats, and in the top three of most shredded bodybuilders ever.
At the 2007 Arnold Classic, the national sales manager of Gaspari Nutrition (Tom) was kind enough to give me a free tub of "SIZEON" in its grape blast flavour (my favourite). It was without question the most effective non-hormonal supplement that I ever used. In fact it was SO effective that to this day I have suspicions it may have been spiked with hormones since I have never responded even nearly as well with any other creatine product. I went on to try SIZEON later in the summer of 2007 and achieved about 70% of the results I did using it the first time around but without the mind blowing pumps but that was still a good result. I also used "SUPER PUMP 250" which was quite effective but I had to stop using it prematurely because I could not handle the side effects (indigestion).

At the 2007 Mr. Olympia I went right back to the Gaspari Nutrition booth to inquire about new supplements and a friendly customer service representative of the company was kind enough to give me everything that I wanted. I got two full tubs of IntraPro by Gaspari Nutrition, in the strawberry and chocolate flavours.
The strawberry flavour is the only tub of IntraPro which I have used so far and I found it to be quite good, for those who like fruit flavoured protein supplements. I would simply mix the IntraPro with water or milk and drink my shake. I found myself drinking the IntraPro shakes when I was the most strapped for time. It was easy to down my one glass mixed with one scoop of the protein powder. In water it was ok, but I preferred to mix it with skim milk.
I only mixed the IntraPro with water or skim milk. I did not find it to mix as well as some of the other premium protein products I have used in the past, such as Syntha-6 by BSN, but it was definitely pretty good at mixing overall, save for a few clumps which would come about during the mixing.
As with every other protein supplement I have ever used, I had no problems digesting the IntraPro protein by Gaspari Nutrition. As mentioned in the introduction of this review, I did have difficulties with Gaspari's "SUPER PUMP 250" product, but IntraPro did not cause me any side effects of this type (or any other for that matter).
For a high quality and convenient protein powder, I recommend IntraPro. While discussing the effectiveness of a food supplement is never easy to do, my progress while using this supplement was adequate and I plan to continue to use it until I have completed both the strawberry and chocolate flavoured tubs which I was given by the friendly people at Gaspari Nutrition.
For a premium protein blend, IntraPro delivers. It contains 35 grams of protein per serving and contains a variety of vitamins and amino acids. I was not happy to read that it contains artificial flavours such as silica and sucralose, but otherwise I am content with the product ingredients. Artificial sweeteners are a pretty big no-no for me though, so it is one fault which weighs heavily at my preferences. That said, the protein clumps somewhat when mixed with a spoon in a glass so a shaker bottle or blender may be a better idea. For a premium protein blend, I would expect to not have this concern, as the price is somewhat steep at $26.79 for 2.2 pounds. To me, cost effectiveness is an important part of supplement selection and for that reason, I wouldn't use IntraPro if I had to pay for it myself, but I will state once again that the quality is up there. It all comes down to personal preference and budget and with the cost of whey on the rise in 2007, it's getting harder and harder to buy top quality protein supplements for a low price.
