Frequently Asked Questions
Is PhysioPhyx only suggested for those people involved in endurance exercise?
Absolutely not. Fitness enthusiasts of all types – gym rats, crossfitters, weekend warriors, body builders and those looking to maintain a certain level of fitness – can all benefit from PhysioPhyx. We formulated PhysioPhyx to contain vital recovery promoting nutrients at dosing levels that have been shown by peer-reviewed research to provide meaningful benefits for anyone involved in strenuous exercise, no matter the format. The keys to recovering after intense exercise include quickly and efficiently restoring fluid levels (water), replenishing energy stores (carbs) and repairing muscle tissue (protein). The main active ingredients contained in PhysioPhyx are rapid-absorbing carbs, fast-acting whey protein and the essential amino acid L-Leucine, which according to published research and trusted experts, helps trigger and accentuate muscle repair and synthesis.
What is L-leucine and why do you have it in PhysioPhyx?
Great question! We like to think of L-Leucine as our secret sauce. L-Leucine is one of three branch chain amino acids and one of eight essential amino acids, and essential amino acids can only be acquired from foods or supplements. Leucine has been shown to boost post exercise protein synthesis by up to 33% and improves recovery of muscle performance both during and after steady state exercise, which is most typical of those involved in endurance related activities. In addition to its ability to stimulate and enhance muscle recovery, Leucine can also help support your body’s energy needs during exercise.
Is your whey protein isolate sourced from hormone-free cows?
You bet. Our insider knowledge enabled us to easily pinpoint and source our whey protein isolate from the industry leader in antibiotic & hormone-free whey protein. It costs a little more, but we think your health is worth it. Typically products made with hormone-free whey protein will have a statement on the label claiming “This Product Is rBST Free”. Look for this on any product you purchase.
Why did you use whey protein isolate as your only source of protein for PhysioPhyx?
It’s all about the science. Experts agree and research supports that whey protein is a fast-acting, biologically complete protein, meaning it contains all the essential amino acids needed to help reduce muscle damage, support muscle repair and promote training adaptions. We chose whey protein isolate for PhysioPhyx due to the fact that it provides a minimum 90% active protein versus a whey protein concentrate, which is typically around 80%. In addition, whey protein isolate is high in the amino acid L-Leucine and nearly void of lactose, making it ideal for those that are lactose intolerant.
Does PhysioPhyx contain any ingredients made from genetically modified (GMO) sources?
Never, ever will we source ingredients that come from genetically modified starting material. We have strict sourcing and quality control standards that we will not bend. Having worked behind the scenes of the natural products and dietary supplement industry for nearly 20 years, we know which raw material suppliers to use and which to avoid. Every ingredient we use has been hand-picked and comes with statements of non-gmo compliance.
Why does PhysioPhyx contain both dextrose (glucose) & fructose as the source of carbohydrates?
Our goal in formulating PhysioPhyx was to give you the best of the best and current research shows that the co-ingestion of glucose (dextrose) and fructose provides superior performance over other carb sources such as glucose or maltodextrin alone. Researchers often refer to this blend as “multiple transportable carbohydrates” – we call this combo our “go-fast” fuel. The bottom line is that this blend has been shown to leave the gut quickly with no stomach distress and quickly enter the blood stream where it can be transported for your immediate energy needs. One study using eight trained cyclists showed an 8% quicker time trial completion when consuming a glucose / fructose blend versus water only or glucose only.
