Frequently Asked Questions

When to take it?

What's the ideal time to take Progenex Recovery and Progenex More Muscle?

Ideally, take one More Muscle shake first thing in the morning, when your body is experiencing a protein deficit. Then take Progenex Recovery after training. If it was a very draining workout and you feel like you need more, add a scoop or two of More Muscle with your Recovery. You can take another More Muscle shake before bed and as a snack between meals.

What should I take on non-training days?

Take one Progenex More Muscle shake first thing in the morning. You also can take another shake later in the day as a meal replacement. Ensure a deep, sound, restorative sleep withProgenex Cocoon. And always remember thatProgenex Recovery needs to be taken after each workout.

How would you combine the Progenex product line?

Take Progenex More Muscle first thing in the morning and then Recovery after each training session. Use Progenex Force pre-workout and then enjoy Progenex Flow as a snack between meals. At some point during the day, oil up with Progenex Omega+. Before retiring, sip your Progenex Cocoon. On non-training days, do the same, but simply without the Progenex Recovery.

What is in it?

How is Progenex Recovery different from any other whey protein isolate?

Progenex Recovery is not simply a WPI, or whey protein isolate. Progenex Recovery has been hydrolyzed, or cut, using a proprietary enzymatic process that cuts the protein into tiny peptide sequences that can be quickly absorbed into the bloodstream.

What makes Progenex More Muscle so special?

Similar to Progenex Recovery, Progenex More Muscle is specially formulated for fast absorption. Progenex More Muscle also contains a full 20% BCAAs and an all-natural growth factor that helps you build lean muscle mass and burn fat, enabling you to achieve your best body composition ever.

Why is speed of absorption so important?

The faster protein is in your bloodstream, the faster it gets to your muscles, helping to produce the gains you want. It takes up to five hours for whole proteins, such as beef, chicken, or fish, to get into your bloodstream. All Progenex protein products have been hydrolyzed for rapid absorption, ensuring the vital nutrients get into your bloodstream in minutes and to your hungry muscle fibers fast!

I am interested in increasing my protein intake to 3.0g/kg of desired LBM but I would need to use protein powder to get there. I am concerned with the insulin spikes that whey protein powders give off. I am also interested in losing body fat.

There is a significant additive advantage to consuming mixed carbohydrate and protein supplements immediately post-workout. Your post-workout target should be to both feed existing muscle fibers as well as stimulate satellite muscle cells. (which fuel the greater proportion of muscle growth from exercise). Progenex More Muscle does both.

How to take it?

When should I take Progenex Recovery?

Immediately after training.

How often can I take Progenex Recovery?

You can take Progenex Recovery after every training session. If you are training multiple times in one day, you can take a Progenex Recovery shake after each session.

Should I take Progenex Recovery on non-training days?

Progenex Recovery is specifically designed as a post-training supplement. Taking it on non-training days will not necessarily add additional recovery gains. However, it would increase your high quality protein intake.

Do you recommend mixing Recovery and More Muscle together in one shake?

You can after longer, tougher workouts but it is not necessary on a typical workout. Progenex Recovery is typically enough for post-workout.

Can Recovery and More Muscle be taken with carbs?

Yes. You can eat some carbs approximately 15 minutes after consuming a Recovery or More Muscle shake.

Can I sprinkle Recovery or More Muscle on my steel cut oats?

We do not recommend it. You can eat your steel cut oats about 15 minutes after drinking your Recovery or More Muscle shake.

Can I use Progenex More Muscle as a meal replacement?

Absolutely. However, Progenex More Muscle is not formulated as a meal replacement so it does not have many carbs and no fats. To get the most out of a meal replacement you might want to mix some healthy carbs (fruits) and fats (coconut oil, nut butters). This will also help keep you full enough until the next meal.
