What is Growth Matrix?
Growth Matrix is a post-workout recovery protein shake. Post-workout shakes have become a staple for regular gym attendees, endurance athletes and sports people in general due to the fast-digesting hit of protein directly after a workout.
The muscles are known to be at their most receptive directly after exercise, and Growth Matrix provides an instant hit of amino acids. With hydrolysed whey protein and amino acids L-leucine and glutamine, vitamin B6, electrolytes, fast-acting carbohydrates, and Creapure® Creatine, Growth Matrix can reduce tiredness and fatigue, and contribute to the recovery of normal muscle function after intense or long-lasting physical exersise.
Who is it for?
Growth Matrix has been formulated for effective recovery from intense physical training. Men and women who are looking to build muscle mass and reduce fatigue after intense physical exercise can benefit from this product.
Whether you are a bodybuilder, participate in cardio, football, or any combination of sports, exercise causes stress on the muscles, which the body repairs with protein. Reflex’s Growth Matrix helps your muscles by providing protein and, more granularly, amino acids to maintain and build the muscle tissue.
Growth Matrix is a vegetarian product but is not suitable for vegans or coeliacs.
What are the benefits?
- Contributes to the maintenance and growth of muscle mass
- Increased physical performance in successive short bursts
- Contributes to a normal energy-yielding metabolism
It is crucial to consume nutrients straight after exercise in order to provide the muscles with the protein and carbohydrates used during the training period.
The peptides and amino acids found in hydrolysed EU sourced whey protein are absorbed by your body very quickly, which makes this type of protein perfect to take straight after a workout or intense exercise.
Consume one serving daily, immediately after a workout.
Mix 105g (approximately three level 60ml measures (scoop included in the tub)) with 450ml water or skimmed milk in a shaker or blender. More or less liquid can be added to obtain the optimal consistency for you.
Drink the shake immediately after mixing, and for exact measurements, we advise using weighing scales, as the scoop measures in millilitres rather than grams.
How is it made?
Growth Matrix’s main ingredient of EU sourced whey protein is made from milk produced by grass-fed cattle. The whey protein in Growth Matrix has been extensively treated with enzymes to create a hydrolysed whey, which makes it far easier to absorb into the bloodstream.
We then add a very significant dose of L-leucine (arguably the most important branch-chain amino acid), followed by fast acting carbohydrates in the form of glucose polymers. Couple all of this with additional peptide bonded glutamine, Creapure Creatine®, vitamin B6 and electrolytes and it makes Growth Matrix the best post workout shake you could possibly ask for.
How does it taste?
It is important to note that by treating the protein and breaking down the bonds, hydrolysed whey does have a naturally slightly bitter flavour. Growth Matrix comes in two punchy flavours to make the hydrolysed whey as delicious as possible, flavoured with cocoa powder and fruit extracts.
Growth Matrix can be enjoyed in two flavours:
The science behind it
Hydrolysed whey protein is simply whey protein that absorbs faster into the bloodstream due to already being partially broken down. In effect, we take out the middle man in the body’s digestion by partially breaking the bonds linking amino acids by treating the whey with enzymes. This then allows a rapid amino acid absorption direct from consumption and saves the body having to break down the protein into amino acids.
Growth Matrix also features a significant dose of L-leucine, glutamine and BCAAs, to provide 7,000mg of L-leucine and over 25,000mg of glutamine and BCAAs per shake. Fast-acting carbohydrates provide the body with instant energy to replace what was burned during exercise.
Vitamin B6, electrolytes and Creapure® Creatine contribute to a reduction in fatigue, and an increase in physical performance.
