Unjury Review - Does This Medical Quality Protein Work? Are unpleasant taste and side effects deal breakers?

By Summer Banks on Aug 29, 2016
Unjury Review

No joke – over 50% of diet products simple don’t work. So what about Unjury? Our attention focused on the ingredients, side effects, scientific research and the quality of customer service. Additionally, hundreds of dieter comments and reviews were examined. Then, we summarized and condensed to give you the info you need.

EDITOR'S TIP:

What is Unjury?

First off, Unjury ingredients are whey isolate, fructose, cocoa powder, natural flavors, soy lecithin, xanthan gum, sea salt, acesulfame potassium, sucralose and potassium chloride. The company promotes weight-loss by using 21g of “medical quality” protein to satisfy hunger. You’ll mix one scoop of the powder, add to water or your favorite beverage and drink multiple times per day. One benefit it that it’s available in single-serve packets.

Unjury is marketed by ProSynthesis Laboratories, which was founded in 2006. The supplement is sold through the official website and trusted retailers like Amazon. We like the longevity of the business and that we located some positive customer comments, but read on…

Unpleasant Taste – “Kind of Bland!”

The first concern we found in customer reviews about Unjury ingredients centered on the poor taste.  “The company claims their supplements offer ‘taste and quality you can trust’,” said our Research Editor. “Based on user comments, this may not be the case.”

“The smell and taste made me very sick, so I refused to use it,” explained a customer.

“This stuff tastes terrible,” said another.

While taste is a consideration, we did locate some user reviews offering a different take on the flavor.

Although the taste is impossible to detect, it does have an unusual sort of smell. Nothing to be alarmed about,” said a dieter.

Side Effects – “Not Good?”

We searched Unjury side effects and found dieter reviews weren’t always positive. “All of the gas has been coming up as burps instead of going out the other end,” said a user.

“I started getting a headache and felt overall sluggish,” stated a customer.

We did find some customers that didn’t experience negative side effects while using Unjury. “I am feeling pretty good and have not experienced any real pain,” stated a dieter.

“I kept getting sick, throwing up…I started drinking Unjury and the gas pains went away,” reported another.

We’ve done the research and have found that when any part of a supplement is deemed concerning, such as being the cause of adverse reactions, the chances of long-term success is limited. Is Unjury the best option if you use it and experience negative side effects?

The Science – “Any Proof?”

Unjury is “medical-quality” and recommended at top hospitals. While there’s information about the quality of the ingredients; the company doesn’t offer clinical research connecting this formula to weight-loss. This is concerning, considering there are studies proving adding protein to a diet is essential to weight-management. We at DietSpotlight like when claims are backed by science. We have concerns when no evidence is presented.

The Bottom Line – Does Unjury Work?

Is Unjury the right choice? Well, we like that is contains 21g of protein per serving and seems to be affordable, but we have concerns about it because there’s no research connecting this formula to weight-loss. We’re also a bit skeptical about it due to customer reviews talking about poor taste and negative side effects.

You deserve a products that promotes weight-loss, so we suggest going with a supplement containing ingredients proven to work, not connected to negative side effects and backed by positive customer comments.

Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. It offers four clinically tested ingredients, which promote weight-loss by helping ignite fat loss and accelerate metabolism. There’s no chatter about harmful side effects, but we did notice users are talking about seeing excellent results.

Also, the makers of Leptigen are so confident in their supplement; they’re offering a Special Trial Offer.

How Does Unjury Compare?

Previous Unjury Review (Updated January 1, 1970):

What You Should Know

Unjury is the brand name of a product manufactured and distributed by ProSynthesis Laboratories, Inc., a company based and located in Reston, Virginia and co-founded by a registered dietician who holds an MSc degree in Clinical Nutrition from Boston University. The founder once ran the clinical nutrition division of a large teaching hospital, and has lots of experience in hospital management, nursing homes, home care and research. The company claims to manufacture protein products that both taste good and are of the highest quality. Unjury is one of those products, and it is offered in a number of different flavors and packaging. They say it is processed from good medical quality whey protein powder, and that with it you can make a protein shake or smoothie that tastes really good. They also say that you can even add the powder to your own protein recipes. Research in the clinical field has shown that a person has much greater satisfaction, does not suffer from hunger as much and has more success in losing weight when he or she is on a diet that is relatively high in protein. Unjury is a protein diet supplement that supposedly slips easily into this notch - your hunger is satisfied better and this actually is meant to help you to lose weight. You don't have to keep your eye on those calories since the supplement is all protein.

Ingredients

Unjury is manufactured from only the highest possible quality whey protein isolate.

Product Features

Unjury comes in four flavors and one un-flavor - chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, chicken soup and unflavored. The latter can be added to food as a protein supplement with no flavor change or to drinks such as orange juice. The chicken soup flavored Unjury needs little explanation - it can be used as an excellent cup-o-soup for a quick snack or even for a more substantial meal. Some people have even added it to chicken pieces as a casserole sauce. The remaining three go without saying - they make great tasting shakes or smoothies.

Advantages

  • Add a protein boost to your diet without having to worry about those extra calories.
  • The company has shown itself to be very conscious about ingredients supplied by China and refuses to use ingredients made in that country
  • The Unjury website has some very good tips on how to use the supplement.

Disadvantages

  • The company makes many claims for a product that is clearly just flavored whey powder.
  • For a simple flavored whey powder this product is very expensive.

Conclusion

In an effort to steer clear of fat and cholesterol, many dieters stay away from foods such as cheese and meat, food sources that, in fact, are a good source of protein. The result of this reduction in protein intake is that it can affect weigh loss and one's general health. The result - hunger! Using Unjury as a protein supplement is supposed to give your body the protein content that it needs.

    I can stand to lose a few pounds but basically, I just need more protein in my diet. I drink fruit and veggie smoothies. Will the chocolate work to add to that? I often add cacao so I do like a chocolate flavor.

    I have used Unjury since 2007 when I had lap-band surgery. It was recommended by my surgeon and I have not found a protein powder that is better. It mixes effortlessly and always tastes smooth and creamy. I like the Chocolate Splendor best and I’m going to try the Vanilla mixed with coffee as soon as my order arrives. Some people I know have said it tastes too sweet or too artificial but I disagree. I think if you mix it with a couple extra ounces of liquid it would cut any sweetness complaints and I never have an aftertaste so to each his/her own.

    My wife had gastric bypass surgery several years ago. She did quite a bit of research on the proper nutritional supplements she would need and Unjury was one of the most highly recommended protein powders. We both love it, especially the Chocolate Classic flavor. We have tried others but nothing comes close.

    Ordered some Unjury protein powders after reading all the glowing reviews on their website. Well, I find the product to be completely dreadful and feel I am owed an apology. Tried to post similar negative review on their website but they won’t put it on the website – only the glowing reviews are published – curious? Please use caution when buying Unjury

    My thoughts are: Where are the ingredients posed? I need to compare this Unjury product in Protein amount, fat content, sugar content. It makes me wonder, why is it a secret? How to find the label?

    Good Afternoon, I am currently going through Chemo Treatments for Colon cancer. My problem is weight gain. I lost a lot of weight prior to diagnosis and I am eating (pretty well) but the weight is coming slowly. I have a lot of energy and do drink Ensure with a scoop of another protein powder. Can Unjury help me gain weight and why is it different?

    Thanks.

    I have been using the unflavored in my coffee for the last four months. My hair is falling out since the last couple of weeks. I read that if you use the powder in something very hot it due proteins. Is this true?

    [Reply]

    Your Name

    I think you have a type-o making your question unclear. You hair is not falling out due to protein use, so your statement above makes it sound like the protein is causing your hair to fall out???? Unjury label (I’ve been using it for over 6 months now) says that if it’s too hot it changes the texture making it clumpy.

    Have used Unjury whey protein powder for 5 months post sleeve gastrectomy surgery and have lost almost 80 lbs. It mixes with no lumps, tastes great mixed with water, and the new chocolate flavor mixed with warm decaf coffee is the way I start my day.

    I have used Unjury for the past 1 1/2 yrs, have lost 150 lbs w/gastric by-pass surgery & have been able to keep it off. I have been eating a protein bar that I get at Sam’s by Premier nutrition. This bar has 30 g protein, 0 trans fat, 23g total carb, 7 fat g & 280 calories. Is this a good choice?
