What You Should Know
Nutrex manufactures products to supplement body building. Founded in 2002, Nutrex currently markets a line of 9 supplements.
Their Lipo products are designed to aid your body in shedding unwanted fat. According to the marketing literature, Lipo products– including Lipo 6X, Lipo 6, and Lipo 6 Hers-contain no herbal compounds, which are “inferior and cannot be absorbed by the human body.”
Nutrex’s Pro Gram product delivers 30 grams of protein per serving for body building. Volu Gro, another Nutrex supplement, is a post-workout creatine accelerator for muscle mass gain. Nutrex describes its Vitrix product as “the number one selling liquid sex pill.” Its Anabol 5 supplement is designed to build muscle and strength. Niox, another supplement in the Nutrex line, reportedly exerts anabolic impact on muscles to force them to take on volume. The manufacturer’s Mass XXplosion is a product that you take during workouts to enhance blood flow to muscles and deliver an “anabolic pump.” Finally, Nutrex’s markets its Ignite supplement as a “mental focusing agent and hardcore energy booster.”

Nutrex was among the first diet supplement companies to market their products in liquid capsule form. The firm now markets liquid multi-phase capsules, which they describe as “two capsules in one,” for improved absorption.
The company has put together “Team Nutrex,” composed of body builders who endorse Nutrex products. Team Nutrex includes both male and female athletes.
Bodybuilding.com voted Lipo 6 the fat loss product of the year in 2009 for the fifth year running. Nutrex is introducing a new version of Lipo 6, called Lipo 6 Black, that is not yet advertised on the Nutrex website.

Like nearly all products that claim to deliver souped-up helpings of protein and other supplements designed to pump up muscles and trim away fat, Nutrex products are expensive to use. The only evidence of their effectiveness is paid endorsements from athletes and feedback from individual users. You should decide whether to trust these endorsements enough to fork over your hard earned cash, or to play it safe and go the balanced diet, plenty of exercise route towards better physical conditioning.
