Rifle Protein Powder Review
What You Should Know
Rifle Protein Powder by Protein Factory is one in a long line of protein supplements. The product description claims Rifle Protein Powder is the most effective form of protein a bodybuilder can use. The ingredient list includes common sources of protein used in other protein powders, so what makes this supplement any different from those protein powders?
Protein Factory lists hundreds of products. Most make claims without clinical backing. A review section of the product description is blank for Rifle Protein Powder. Without testimonials, the bodybuilder is left on product description alone. With trusted protein sources available today for a fraction of the $40 cost of Rifle Protein Powder, we are unsure why a bodybuilder would choose this product.
List of Ingredients
Whey Fraction (containing 8% Immunoglobulin, Lactoferrin, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), phosphatidylserine , phosphatidylcholine , Insulin-Like Growth Factors (IGF-1), non-fat dry milk, fresh curd caseinate, fructose, medium chain triglycerides, malted milk powder, egg white protein, natural vanilla flavor, RIFLE protein matrix: (Hydrolyzed caseinate (retaining a molecular weight average of 860 daltons and retaining a high proportion of glucogenic amino acids ), Bio-Active Super Plasma Protein (containing 3000ng/g of IGF-1, 1000ng of IGG), hemoglobin hydrolysate (containing the patented bio-active peptide VVYP), aminogen, whey peptide GH (containing 30,000ng/g of IGF-1))sucralose.
Behind all the long words and scientific names, Rifle Protein Powder is nothing special. Whey Fraction contains CLA, protein and sugar. CLA or conjugated linoleic acid is proven to decrease fat stores and increase lean muscle mass. There are side effects associated with the supplement, however. Common side effects may include gastrointestinal distress, gas and bloating.
The Rifle Protein Matrix is protein. Bio-Active Super Plasma Protein is protein. Aminogen is a plant enzyme that helps break down protein faster. What is the name of the enzyme? No one knows. Protein Factory also has an enzyme that breaks down carbohydrates called Carbogen with an unnamed ingredient.
IGF-1 is listed several times on the ingredient list. This is a growth factor that works much like insulin in the body. This could mean bodybuilders with diabetes should not take this supplement.
- A complete ingredient list is published for consumers.
- Aminogen is an unknown enzyme.
- The supplement is made up of protein, sugar and CLA.
- No clinical trials to support the product or ingredients are listed.
Protein Factory is known for making claims without backing up those claims with clinical trials. At times, trials are mentioned, but no reference link is provided so the consumer can verify the trial even exists. With Rifle Protein Powder work better than other protein powders. We don’t think so, but the sugar is surely apt to give bodybuilders a rise – in calories.
