NATURADE MEGA PROTEIN
23 Grams Of Protein From Natural Soy, Whey, Egg And Rice!
Right on track so far.
High quality protein is composed of a balanced profile of amino acids. Amino acids are required for building lean muscle, providing energy, and increasing endurance and strength. Naturade Mega Protein provides these important amino acids in an all-natural formula that's low fat, low cholesterol and sugar free.
Naturade Mega Protein is not straying from the truth so far.
It is fortified with 45 mg of Gamma Oryzanol and 45mg of Inosine.
For those of you that don't know, Gamma Oryzanol is a mixture of substances derived from rice bran oil, including sterols and ferulic acid. It has been approved in Japan for several conditions, including menopausal symptoms, mild anxiety, stomach upset, and high cholesterol. In the US, it is widely used as a sports supplement, as well as for reducing cholesterol. However, there is no meaningful evidence supporting the use of gamma oryzanol for any of these purposes. Inosine is the perfect training companion. It is a natural substance that can help increase the body's ability to carry oxygen, without effecting its uptake in the lungs, so it can work harder, stronger. Inosine is a purine nucleoside which works with ribose in forming the building blocks of ATP, DNA and RNA.
Naturade Mega Protein is "The Ultimate Protein Shake." Naturade Mega Protein supplies a balanced blend of enzymatically digested amino acids from lactalbumin (milk), egg and rice. This unique formulation provides amino acids in small peptide form which are more easily digested and more rapidly assimilated. Mega Protein includes soy, egg and milk protein that all rate a perfect 1.0 on the FDA's Protein Digestibility (PDCAAS) score, equivalent in quality to animal protein to optimize digestibility.
Score 1.0 for Vegetarians, but not Vegans. I think they're going a bit far when they say that "Naturade Mega Protein is "The Ultimate Protein Shake." Therefore, in regards to the claim, I award Naturade Mega Protein a 9/10.
I sampled the natural flavour, which is the only flavour of Naturade Mega Protein. It resembled a cardboard-like taste. Needless to say, I found the cardboard taste was awful. Therefore, for taste, I award Naturade Mega Protein a 2/10.
One serving of Naturade Mega Protein required me to blend it twice (the first time there were chunks leftover). I found that Naturade Mega Protein had a chalky texture. Therefore, for mixability/texture, I award Naturade Mega Protein a 3/10.
Just as Naturade Mega Protein stated in their claim: "Amino acids are required for building lean muscle, providing energy, and increasing endurance and strength. Naturade Mega Protein provides these important amino acids in an all-natural formula that's low fat, low cholesterol and sugar free." Therefore, you should expect the kind of results that a purely protein supplement can provide and nothing beyond that. This could probably be described as a minimal increase in exercise efficiency. However, Naturade Mega Protein wisely doesn't claim to give any out of this world results. Therefore, the effectiveness of this supplement is nothing beyond the claim. As a result, I award Naturade Mega Protein a 7/10 for effectiveness.
On a positive note, Naturade Mega Protein is priced competitively. Interestingly, Naturade Mega Protein gives the amino acid profile per 28 gram serving, yet it only provides 23 grams per scoop. Why they do this, boggles my mind. I can only assume that this was some sort of typo or they do this to make their product appear better (while simultaneously hoping that you overlook this small detail). I was impressed with Naturade Mega Protein's claim. However, I felt that the taste of their product was awful. The mixability/texture of the product was poor. The effectiveness of Naturade Mega Protein is on par with many other protein powders. Therefore, for an overall review, I award Naturade Mega Protein a 5.5/10.

Out of the many protein sources out there, whey protein is the ultimate. It provides the body with the necessary building blocks to produce amino acids that are used for building muscle tissue. Whoa! Nearly every bodybuilder knows the importance of protein supplementation. Studies have been conducted that compare whey protein to other sources. They have found that whey protein contains the perfect combination of overall amino acid makeup... and in just the right concentrations for optimal performance in the body.
