Reflex Growth Matrix Review by MATT (Gym Ratz)
"When GROWTH MATRIX came out just before my
comp. I was already eyeing it up for a trial immediately afterwards. Reading
the label it's evident that Reflex GROWTH MATRIX is a good product and an ideal
post workout drink, which is what it's aimed to be. However, knowing there could
be a taste issue - and reading an actual noting on the pot that GROWTH MATRIX
has a bitter taste - I thought this truly must taste awful. My first sip confirmed
my thoughts . GROWTH MATRIX is so awful tasting I've suggested people try my
shake when it's made just to see them squirm.
Almost 4 weeks on (toward the end of the tub)
I've got used to the taste and really don't mind having it. But best of all,
I think it's worked brilliantly as a post workout shake and certainly helped
with my recovery now that I'm hitting the heavier poundages again. Unfortunately,
I think because of the poor taste this product will not sell very well and so
I can't see it being produced for too long (unless the taste factor is improved).
I'm going to start another pot though so it gets my thumbs up and if you can
bare the taste it should get yours. "
(Note by Pete - I agree with Matt on the taste, but having seen how Matt seems
to be recovering between workouts especially as he's training his legs extremely
hard with only a days rest between sessions, I would have to agree, if you are
a seriously hard-core trainer and pushing your body to the limit and beyond,
the taste issue should not be a factor to put you off using this remarkable
product. It's not for everyone, but then, not everyone trains hard enough to
benefit from it!)
What Reflex say about Growth Matrix
Reflex Nutrition has been making sports nutrition supplements for over 10 years.
During those 10 years they have reviewed credible research in relation to intense
weight training, supplementation and novel recovery strategies which may stimulate
protein/muscle synthesis. Reflex Nutrition's research and development team have
translated recent findings and produced a science based product called Growth
Matrix. This exciting development is designed as a "post workout only"
supplement that is taken immediately after your workout.
The active compounds found in Growth Matrix have been the focus of countless
scientific studies. Growth Matrix is the first commercially available product
to use a new type of hydrolysed whey protein.
After trying Growth Matrix you will quickly realise why this may clearly be
the most innovative and advanced protein supplement available today.
Reflex Growth Matrix contains hydrolysed whey protein with a high degree of
Hydrolysed whey protein is whey protein that has been treated with enzymes
to break the protein down into smaller peptides and amino acids. All hydrolysed
proteins generally taste quite bitter; the bitter taste comes from the high
percentage of peptides and amino acids. The upside is the fact that your body
can absorb peptides much faster than whole proteins. This is exactly what our
researchers wanted to achieve in Growth Matrix, fast, almost immediate absorption
of nitrogen.- see nutritional info for peptides in molecular weight.
Signaling your muscles via L-Leucine.
Growth Matrix contains a massive 7,000mgs of free form L-Leucine for its ability
to initiate biological signaling via mTOR (mammalian target of rapamycin) -
in simple terms it's a vital component of Growth Matrix which may trigger increased
protein synthesis when combined with hydrolysate protein and carbohydrate when
taken after resistance exercise.
Contains 1,600mgs of Beta-Alanine per serving & 2,500mgs CREAPURE Creatine
A combination of beta alanine and creatine that could increase muscle carnosine
and creatine phosphate levels; the combination of which may provide better resistance
to muscle fatigue as shown in scientific studies.
Essential electrolytes and glucose polymers.
Intense training leads to a loss of essential electrolytes and a reduction in
muscle glycogen stores. Growth Matrix provides 55 grams of glucose polymers
and added electrolytes to restore the balance as quickly as possible.
Each tub of Growth Matrix will last nearly 4 weeks if you train 4-5 days a
week; one serving is consumed immediately after training.
Growth Matrix is truly state of the art, however the use of high tech nutrients,
and the scientific approach, means that the taste is strong. Our research team
are well aware of the subjective taste, however they also believe that you will
be more than satisfied with the results and therefore the strong taste will
be of little consequence.
