Choosing The Right NytroWhey: Timing is Everything

Posted in: Articles by ProSource, Supplement Articles, Superfeature Articles, Protein, ProSource: NytroWhey | Aug 29, 2008

When it comes to protein, NytroWhey is well established as the leader for purity, anabolism and, of course, its customer-approved taste. The first in the industry to use a cross-flow micro-filtration system yielding high amounts of whey peptide fractions and critical growth factors, this progressive franchise has, since its introduction, continually advanced itself to deliver the most effective muscle synthesis for every conceivable user application. If you're looking for a protein for pre- or post-workout, aerobic, median weight training, heavy weight training, nighttime or daytime-there's a NytroWhey to fit your need.

After all these years and thousands of bodybuilding success stories we've come to believe that there's not much more convincing needed as far as NytroWhey's superiority, but for some there's been confusion with regard to deciding which NytroWhey is best to use. Bear in mind though, one of the finer aspects of NytroWhey is that there are so many choices. The key to choosing is not so much that you need to decide on one (which is also feasible) but two or more in the proper combination. Most researchers in the science of muscle growth, including the formulators here at ProSource, are convinced that the most effective anabolic results are seen from using different high grade proteins with specific rates of absorption at different times of the day and night. As regards the NytroWhey formulas, one is not necessarily better than another because they all have their particular uses for certain times (pre and post-workout, day and night) and ultimately should be used in combination for best results. Using this multi-formula approach will not only help you with your gains, but it's more cost effective as well. For instance, if you're using NytroPlex GF (the sustained release formula) for nighttime and after workout, you might consider using NytroWhey Ultra post-workout instead for quicker absorption during that critical 1 hour after exercise, which is crucial to optimum growth, and then use the NytroPlex before sleep. This way you're getting the most effective anabolic results round-the-clock while saving money by purchasing less NytroPlex: 2 Nytrowhey Ultra and 1 NytroPlex-versus-3 NytroPlex. Although you can get very good results from NytroPlex as your only protein product, it's easy to see the cost advantage by adding NytroWhey Ultra, and you'll see even better anabolic results as well when combining the two.

That may help to clear up some of the confusion, but with 6 highly effective NytroWhey formulas the decision making gets a bit tougher. So, to help you make the most effective anabolic choice while at the same time keeping costs in line with your budget, we offer the following short review of each NytroWhey and plan suggestions for using the formulas:


The original flagship formula that introduced cross flow micro-filtrated whey isolate to the industry and became the cornerstone of the continually evolving NytroWhey line. A basic protein that can serve as a highly anabolic foundation for bodybuilding and sports supplementation, NytroWhey is rich in critical growth factors and amino peptide fractions for superior muscle synthesis. One of the major advantages of NytroWhey is that it provides protein with a higher bioavailability than its competition, which means more of the protein is actually absorbed and delivered to muscle tissue compared to an ion-exchanged or standard filtration derived protein. To top this off, in keeping with the latest advances in micro-filtration technology, this original formula has received a recent upgrade, making it even more highly anabolic since its inception. NytroWhey can be used any time of day or night, pre or post workout, but since the advent of NytroWhey Ultra and NytroPlex, NytroWhey is now best used as a daytime or pre-workout protein in support of the Ultra for post workout and NytroPlex for nighttime.

NytroWhey Extreme

NytroWhey Extreme is the next progression in the line, taking all of the muscle synthesis advantages of the exceptionally potent NytroWhey protein and adding Arginine AKG (alpha-ketoglutarate) to facilitate nitric oxide production for improved blood circulation and delivery of nutrients to the muscle tissue. Arginine AKG is the primary ingredient in just about every pre-workout and creatine formula available today and has had remarkable muscle growth success. The amount of AAKG in NytroWhey Extreme is 600 mg per serving, which in powder form is more than sufficient to assist a "pump" effect and help deliver the micro-fractions and critical growth factors with amazing effectiveness, ensuring highly anabolic results. NytroWhey Extreme makes a very highly anabolic post-workout protein formula and, like NytroWhey, can be used anytime but is best as daytime and pre-workout anabolic support for NytroWhey Ultra.

NytroWhey Extreme for HardGainers

After NytroWhey Extreme came NytroWhey Extreme for Hard Gainers, which starts with the same exact ingredients as in NytroWhey Extreme and then adds 2 grams of BCAAs for extra anabolic and anti-catabolic support and 8 grams of healthy fats including MCTs. Medium chain triglycerides are efficiently metabolized for energy and have less of a propensity to be stored in the body as fat; these two factors make it highly effective for lean mass enhancement. NytroWhey Extreme for Hard Gainers is a versatile gainer formula that has become exceptionally popular with bodybuilders who desire a highly anabolic formula without the high amounts of simple sugars so common in the weight-gainer category. Thus, with 6 grams of carbohydrates, the Hard Gainers formula can easily be used along with another clean carbohydrate source of your choosing to assure a more even uptake of carbohydrates as well as sufficiently covering post workout recovery. The Hard Gainers formula can be used post-workout, pre-workout, day or nighttime and like the previous two NytroWheys works exceptionally well in combination with NytroWhey Ultra and NytroPlex.


NytroPlex is an extremely well-designed long-acting protein fuel source. Intended to cover more extended periods of time than the fast-acting whey proteins in order to feed muscle continuously thereby defeating any catabolic condition, NytroPlex is unique in that it uses the industry's absolute HIGHEST GRADE sources of whey isolate, egg albumin and micellar casein. One of the key aspects that sets NytroPlex apart from virtually every other time release protein blend on the market is that it contains no whey protein concentrate or lower-grade proteins of any kind, unlike most that use inferior low-grade concentrates and calcium caseinates. The form of casein in NytroPlex in particular, micellar casein, contains exceptionally higher amounts of bioactive peptides, such as glycomacropeptides. Along with its CFM isolate, egg albumin and this highly anabolic casiene, NytroPlex can feed muscle tissue with a steady flow of amino acids for up to 7 hours, making it an ideal choice for daytime (especially if you're not taking in sufficient protein meals) or bedtime to fight catabolism.

NytroWhey Ultra

NytroWhey Ultra is currently the top of the NytroWhey line and represents the most advanced, cutting edge research in anabolic protein formulations. This elite whey protein stands alone as the most anabolic standard protein supplement available anywhere, which multitudes of bodybuilders will attest to. Ultra starts with the original highly anabolic NytroWhey protein and adds state-of-the-art rapid-action hydrolyzed whey isolate that ramps up NytroWhey's mass-building potential beyond anything previously believed possible. The shorter chain aminos from this hydrolyzed protein are so swiftly bioavailable they can be absorbed into the blood stream without digestion resulting in improved nitrogen utilization as well as providing a larger amount of BCAAs, glutamine peptides and other growth factors for ultimate muscle synthesis. This quick uptake of protein growth factors is your best bet for the absolute ultimate muscle synthesis in that critical time period directly after workout. Without question this is your best choice for after workout, or during daytime to fill in your protein needs along with meals.


Some time ago it became apparent, in light of all the sugar-laden gainer formulas available, that a truly anabolic protein formula with high-grade carbohydrates was sorely needed. Seeing this, ProSource R&D team took the problem to heart and produced NytroGainer. With a 50-gram blend of growth-factor-rich proteins, 55 grams of fast and slow absorbing carbs along with a complex of healthy fats, this latest NytroWhey entry takes the weight-gainer to a considerably higher level of effectiveness. NytroGainer contains BCAAs and an added amount of L-leucine KIC to ramp up synthesis even more as well as creatine and 300 mg of clinically proven Aminogen to assist protein digestion and uptake of growth-promoting amino acids. Instead of the usual simple sugars used in the vast majority of gainers, NytroGainer adds a blend of oat bran, dextrose and Waxy Maize starch. A high-molecular weight carbohydrate, Waxy Maize has a remarkable ability to quickly replenish muscle glycogen stores post-workout while the dextrose and oat bran stimulate insulin release and sustain energy. To ensure optimum growth, taurine (for cell-volume) L-arginine (NO enhancement) beta-alanine (performance assistance) Tribulus terrestris (testosterone support) and L-carnitine, L-tartrate (cell energy and testosterone utilization) are added. As you can see, NytroGainers' extremely comprehensive formula goes well beyond the ordinary and represents the premium choice for true mass gains. Generally after workout and during the day is the optimum time for NytroGainer but using a gainer formula of this caliber entails precise timing. Please refer to plan 4 below for more details.

The Plans

The following are recommendations for protein supplementation, not replacements for meals, and typically you would want to consume approximately 1 1/2 to 2 grams of protein per pound of body weight per day (while training) from food and supplements combined. And remember, if at all possible, you should take in six meals per day along with your NytroWhey. Six small meals are more effective than three large meals for effective utilization of protein and carbohydrate loading while also controlling insulin spikes that may increase fat storage.

Non-Training Days: 4 scoops of NytroGainer with 16 to 20 oz. of water (one time). You may also take 2 scoops between meals on non-training days.

The Choice is Yours

Remember that these are only suggestions as a foundation to help simplify your choice. You can also use one of these plans as a template to personalize a plan, making changes depending on how much protein you need (1 1/2 grams per pound of body weight total protein intake, including meals and supplemental) and as your schedule dictates. The important thing here is to use the NytroWhey products that most effectively provide coverage throughout the day and night so as to not become catabolic and lose any of your hard-earned muscle gains. It's also crucial to take the fastest absorbing and most anabolic protein formula directly after workout for the best growth results. We do not recommend taking large amounts of the NytroWhey formulas (or any other protein) at one time in order to satisfy a bigger portion of your suggested protein intake. Chances are by doing this, the majority of the protein will be excreted and not have much effect. The only exception to this would be of course the NytroPlex or NytroGainer as the more sustained release allows a longer absorption time; thus you can take several scoops at one time. The fact is, within an hour your body will only absorb about 20 grams of protein, so its crucial to take in the correct amount, and type, of protein for any given time period. Although we highly recommend Ultra for the best results post workout and for shorter intervals during the day, you can use any of the other NytroWheys for the same, except for NytroPlex, which is primarily a sustained absorption daytime and nighttime protein formula. You might think of NytroWhey Ultra as a high-octane premium for ultra effective post-workout muscle growth.

Versatility, great taste and effective muscle growth, all you need now is to make the choice. No matter which NytroWhey you decide on, you're guaranteed highest purity and bioavailability and most importantly, untouchable results compared to virtually all other protein formulas available. Refer to this list whenever you need to be sure you're making the right choice. And remember, the most critical element of your supplement regimen is taking the right NytroWhey at the right time.
