Lean Pro Matrix is one of the many excellent products that is little known on the market. It is a Nutrition Zone
exclusive as it is from their house brand, Next Level Nutrition
This is one area that truly shines for Lean Pro Matrix
. I have always been and still am a Pro Complex
guy, but the taste of Lean Pro Matrix
is one area that has been unsurpassed for me when it comes to blended proteins. Personally, I've had the Chocolate, Mint Chocolate, Vanilla, and the Strawberry Banana and they are all outstanding.
Once again, this product is outstanding in this category. It mixes easily with the recommended amount of water with little to no clumping. For a product that contains casein, it is surprisingly smooth without that characteristic 'gritty' texture associated with some of the other blends that have the casein in it.
Ingredient Profile: 9.6/10
The one thing that Lean Pro Matrix
has that Pro Complex
doesn't is the inclusion of casein. I was also very impressed that they certainly didn't cut any corners in quality with the main source of protein being cross-filtered whey protein
isolates and also including casein, egg protein
s as well as colostrum. With added natural digestive
enzymes and 34g of protein per scoop, I'd say they have a winner here.
This, just like many other proteins is a hard area to judge since its something that you don't necessarily 'feel'. However, with this product (like many others that I have reviewed), I have tried it on bulking, cutting, as well as maintenance phases to gauge its performance. I was pleased with no digestive
issues, and no muscle loss on the cutting phases. This would be a protein blend suitable for either between meals or post workout.
This is the only drawback for me when it comes to this protein. While it is a pricey protein (just like other outstanding blends like Pro Complex
), I feel that the outstanding ingredient profile does well to justify the price.
This is a great protein that I would encourage everyone to try. You can get it from either their online website or from your local Nutrition Zone
. This is a great protein with an excellent overall profile. Next Level Nutrition
has a great product here and Nutrition Zone
made a wise choice to use this as their 'house' protein.
