MyoPlex is a line of protein replacement shakes and bars sold by EAS Daily Nutrition, a company that sells their own extensive line of bodybuilding and performance enhancing supplements. MyoPlex is different from its other supplements because it claims to offer solid protein nutrition that optimizes the metabolism and keeps energy levels high. Their protein snacks contain numerous vitamins and minerals also, which they say make this a superior meal replacement supplement.

Dieters interested in MyoPlex will be pleased to know it is available in most retail and supplement stores, as well as online. Their meal replacement shakes and bars can be purchased in bulk for around $90.00, or for individual supplementation, it tends to cost roughly under $5.00. They also offer free samples through their site.

In the world of bodybuilding and exercise performance, keeping that energy high while optimizing metabolic levels is key. MyoPlex may deliver on a few key points, but there are some ingredients that may not offer the right benefits for dieters.

Ingredients

Their original MyoPlex Ready-to-Drink Powder (their most popular meal replacement supplement) contains the following ingredients: Filtered Water, MyoPro® Protein Blend (Milk Protein Concentrate, Calcium Caseinate And Whey Protein Isolate), Less Than 2% Of: Corn Maltodextrin, Cocoa Powder (Processed With Alkali), Fructooligosaccharides, High Oleic Sunflower Oil, Vitamin And Mineral Blend (Magnesium Phosphate, Potassium Citrate, Sodium Ascorbate, Vitamin A Palmitate, Beta-Carotene, Vitamin D3, dl-Alpha- Tocopheryl Acetate, Niacinamide, Zinc Gluconate, Calcium Pantothenate, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride, Riboflavin, Manganese Gluconate, Thiamine Hydro- chloride, Folic Acid, Biotin, Chromium Chloride, Potassium Iodide, Phytonadione, Sodium Molybdate, Sodium Selenite, Cyanocobalamin), Natural And Artificial Flavors, Cottonseed Fiber, Sodium Hexa- metaphosphate, Sucralose And Carrageenan. Additionally, it contains 300 calories and 42 grams of protein.

Product Features

MyoPlex is rich in protein, essential vitamins, and its share of synthetic ingredients. Despite the use of non-organic ingredients, however, it contains plenty of protein-derived ingredients, including its exclusive protein blend and Biotin. Protein is considered an important part of dieting and exercise because of the role it plays in building muscle tissue, but too much is not necessarily a good thing. Supplementing all meals with MyoPlex supplements may cause dieters to ingest too much protein, but using it once daily decreases that risk.

MyoPlex also contains saturated fat and roughly 300 calories, which may not be ideal for those on a diet. There are numerous meal replacement supplements that offer the same benefits without the massive caloric intake, and this may be something dieters should consider. As a whole, MyoPlex appears to be more of a nutritional supplement than a dietary supplement, and its protein blend may help dieters who want to build muscle.

Advantages

  • Contains an ample amount of protein.
  • Their individual sizes are very affordable at less than $5.00 each.

Disadvantages

  • It may not be an ideal supplement to use for more than one meal, due to the excess protein.
  • May not offer any benefits for those looking for a dietary supplement.
  • Contains synthetic ingredients.

Conclusion

MyoPlex offers a variety of meal replacement shakes and bars to dieters focused on building muscle mass, but contains very little dietary benefits. This is probably due to how it is marketed. It clearly states this is the ideal supplement for bodybuilders and athletes. It does contain plenty of protein that may help boost any diet, but there are plenty of natural sources that offer the same benefits.

    I experienced headache pain concentrated around my left eye after drinking Myoplex, similar to headaches I get from eating Chinese food with MSG, or monosodium glutamate. Does Myoplex include “flavor enhancers” as a chemical additive that may be acting as an excitotoxin with my brain neurons?

    My son is 14 and quite skinny 6’2, 150 lbs. Plays football and basketball. Will start lifting weights every MWF for Frosh B-ball af F-ball summer conditioning. How can he build more muscle with your product? How often and how much should he use each day?

    A recent Consumer Reports’ investigation found alarming toxic metals in some of the most popular protein powder supplements on the market. Although most concentrations were relatively low, samples taken from Muscle Milk Chocolate powder contained four heavy metals, including arsenic, cadmium, mercury and lead – certainly an immediate cause for concern. The investigation also found that three daily recommended servings of AS Myoplex Original Rich Dark Chocolate Shake contained levels of arsenic and cadmium that exceeded the limits recommended by the United States Pharmacoepia.

    Although low levels of all of the four chemicals tested cause significant health concerns, cadmium, often referred to as a human carcinogen (cancer causing agent) is the most dangerous because it accumulates and takes up to 20 years for the body to eliminate just half of it. Also, the consumption of these toxins even at low levels can combine to cause harmful collaborative effects on the body that can linger around for a lifetime. More information on cadmium can be found here on the Center for Disease Control (CDC) website.

    Luckily there are safe, healthy alternatives for incorporating whey protein in our diets and Dr. Mercola has some helpful suggestions. First, he recommends eating as organically as possible to avoid the many toxins often caused by pesticides in non-organic and highly processed products. He notes that the gold standard of whey protein is often a by-product from milk and cheese, but when choosing whey from beef he recommends finding whey that it is derived from grass-fed beef, non-hormonally treated cows and that isn’t artificially sweetened. Dr. Mercola’s own product, Miracle Whey, is made from grass-fed cow’s, is minimally processed using a cold process, non-acid treated whey and is naturally sweetened.

    I’m also loving Swanson Health Products / Ori Hofmekler’s Whey Protein from grass-fed cow’s. The product can be found here.

    Whether you are trying to increase muscle mass or simply supplement an already healthy diet, when chosen correctly, whey protein can have numerous benefits on your health. It contains glutathione, a powerful antioxidant, and it aids in the functioning of pancreas, balances blood sugar levels and preserves lean body tissue. As long as you are choosing the right kind of whey products, whey protein can be a safe, healthy and very beneficial addition to the diet.

    Yours In Health,
