Q: What is the source of Dietary Fiber in the new Myoplex Ready-to-Drink?
A: The source of dietary fiber in the RTDs is a compound called fructooligosaccharides, or FOS. So then, what are fructooligosaccharides? Fructooligosaccharides are a type of fiber that many of us have been eating for years. It's present in foods such as garlic, honey, rye, brown sugar, bananas, onions, barley and tomatoes. Just like other fibers, the body cannot breakdown FOS and use them for energy. It is therefore passed to the large intestine and consumed by beneficial bacteria, called bifido bacteria. Bifido bacteria are good bacteria in our body that help us fight disease. They are important in the maintenance of a healthy GI (gastrointestinal) tract, protect us from a range of toxins, and are necessary for optimal nutrient absorption. Studies with FOS have shown advantages with lowering cholesterol and triglyceride levels, lowering blood sugar, decreasing blood pressure and raising HDL cholesterol (the good cholesterol in our bodies).
Q: What are the differences between the AdvantEdge RTD and the Myoplex RTD?
A: The main differences between the two ready-to-drinks are protein blend, protein quantity and carbohydrate levels. The AdvantEdge RTD contains 15g of soy protein isolate and 28g of carbohydrates. The Myoplex RTD contains 20g of whey isolates and soy isolates with 20g of carbohydrates. They are both nutritionally sound meal supplements, however the Myoplex RTD offers more protein, a more diverse protein blend and a matching level of carbohydrates to protein.
Q: Do I need to refrigerate the Myoplex Ready-to-Drink shakes?
A: The shakes do not have to be refrigerated for storage, but we do recommend that you drink them cold for best taste. The beauty of these shakes is not only their nutritional value but also their convenience. You can take the shakes anywhere with you. You can pack them in a suitcase or take them hiking with you. However, once the shake has been opened, it must be refrigerated.
Q: Will I get the same key nutrients from a Myoplex Ready-to-Drink shake as from a full balanced whole food meal?
A: First of all, you should be sure to eat whole food meals every day. However, the Myoplex Ready-to-Drink shakes have been designed to provide one or more of the recommended six meals per day. Just as with food meals, the shakes provide quality protein, carbohydrates, fat and vitamins & minerals.
Q: How many servings of the Myoplex Ready-to-Drink shakes should I take on training and non-training days?
A: Whether you are on a training or non-training day, you should have six small meals a day. One to three of those meals can be Myoplex Ready-to-Drink shakes which can be used any time of the day.
