Reflex Quattro Protein
Quattro Protein by Reflex Nutrition
As the name, Quattro, would suggest the protein blend is made
up of four different protein sources - whey, cassein, rice protein, egg white
- and so offers both slow and fast release proteins. It's a similar product
then to USN's Pure Protein.
Two unusuall additions to Reflex Nutrition's new protein blend is Lycopene
and Linumlife (flaxseed), both of which are thought to reduce risk of cancer
and cardiovascular disease.
Lycopene is an extract from tomato and is responsable for giving tomato's their
red pigment. It's an antioxidant and some scientific research suggests that
people with diets high in Lycopene are less likely to suffer from Prostate Cancer.
Interestingly, not many years ago Heinz (America) had a consumer awareness campaign
alongside Cancer Research of America about the positive affects of Lycopene.
So Lycopene and Linumlife aren't necessarily what you'd be looking for in a
protein drink, you just want sources of protein really, but if they're added
for the same price as an ordinary protein blend then it's certainly a good thing
Taste wise Reflex supplements are normally very nice and mix well - the team
at Reflex certainly like the taste. We'll update you with our own views, but
from experience of casein blends I (Matt) find the creamier texture makes the
drink more pleaseant with both water and milk.
Here's what Reflex have to say regarding the release of their new product...
Quattro, four proteins sources + Lycopene
This is a world first for the sports nutrition industry.
It is a well known fact that natural lycopene, the pigment that gives tomatoes
their red colour, acts as a powerful antioxidant within the human body which
may protect against some diseases, including cardiovascular disease and some
types of cancer. We thought it would be a fantastic concept to make a new protein
powder packed full of that natural Lycopene along with a totally new four source
This pioneering protein powder is called Quattro and it harnesses the same
amount of natural Lycopene that you would typically find in 60 ripe tomatoes.
Couple that with the all new protein complex derived from four proteins and
we believe that Quattro is set to become the perfect choice for those who want
more from their protein powder.
Quattro contains Lyc-O-Mato
Fact: Using Quattro as your preffered protein powder will provide Lyc-O-Mato;
a tomato complex, rich in antioxidants and health benefiting phytonutrients
including carotenoids - lycopene, beta carotene, phytoene, phytofluene, vitamin
E and phytosterols.
Fact: Each tub of Quatrro actually provides that same amount of Lycopene that
is found in 60 ripe tomatoes!
The power of four proteins..
Reflex Nutrition are famous for making protein products in accordance with strict
quality control ISO9001 procedures. Quattro is no exception making use of four
protein sources to provide a unique amino acid profile.
Preferentially selected Whey Protein - faster digesting
The finest quality whey protein from our ISO registered dairy, selected for
lower levels of fat and lactose.
Super quality Egg White Protein - medium digesting
We only use egg whites that are derived from the freshest eggs. Pure egg whites
have long been a favourite protein source for athletes because of its complete
source of easily digestible essential amino acids.
Oryzatein - new age "super" protein - medium digesting
Oryzatein is a non GMO, Hypoallergenic rice protein. Oryzatein has one of the
best balanced amino acid profiles compared to other vegetable based proteins
like soy. In fact, the amino acid profile found in Oryzatein has a 98% level
of match to mother's milk. This means that the protein you are consuming is
as close to mother's milk as possible from a naturally occurring vegetable protein.
Micellar Casein - slow digesting
Fresh skimmed milk is ultra filtered, in much the same process used to make
whey protein, to produce a pure concentrated milk protein. This is probably
the least processed of all milk proteins and is used in Quattro for its prolonged
release of amino acids during digestion.
For added benefit each serving of Quattro also contains Lactospore pro-biotics
(a stable form of pro-biotic similar to those found in yoghurt drinks), Linumlife
flaxseed extract and Digezyme enzymes to help aid digestion.
