OxyElite Protein is the latest product developed by USPLabs, the company that brought us OxyElite Pro, Jack3d, and many other research based supplement. I have always been impressed with USPLabs, the amount of research they put into their products and the quality of ingredients they use. They really are a company that develops products that combine their experience and the latest research to bring you the best supplements.

Right now OxyElite Protein is in Beta testing with their user groups and the response to its efficacy and taste have been extremely positive. Let’s take a look at OxyElite Protein based upon what we currently know.

What is OxyElite Protein?

According to USPLabsDirect.net, OxyElite Protein is an “advanced leaning protein”. It is a protein supplement that not only delivers you with a quality protein source, but it also contains fat burning and appetite suppressing ingredients (the only other protein powder that contains fat loss ingredients is Myotein). OxyElite Protein has also included digestive enzyymes and soluble fibers to improve the absorption of the protein.

When a company like USPLabs launches a new product you expect it to contains the best, clinically researched ingredients available. Let’s take a look at OxyElite Protein’s ingredients including its protein source and its fat burning ingredients.

OxyElite Protein Ingredients

Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) – CLA, also known as the “good fat” naturally occurs in dairy and beef products. There have been hundreds of clinical studies performed in the past decade about the effectiveness of CLA in regards to its weight loss efficacy. Even Dr.Oz touted CLA as one of the best fat burning supplements of 2013.

Research has shown that CLA blocks fat cells from growing bigger or swelling by influencing enzymes that afect fat growth. CLA also seems to increase the speed of fat burning. In a study done back in 2000 a team of Swedish researchers reported “that CLA takes away fat while increasing muscle mass. Participants in the study experienced a reduction in body fat while taking 3.4 grams of CLA daily for 64 days [1].

Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) – Medium chain triglycerides are fatty acids that are more easily digested by the body than other fat. Coconut oil, palm oil and butter are all great sources of MCTs. Your body uses MCTs as a fuel source, just like carbohydrates, that delivers energy to your muscles. Recent research on MCTs has shown that it stimulates thermogenesis which increases the rate at which your body burns calories and produces weight loss [2,3,4].

Digestive Enzymes – Digestive enzymes are built specifically to break down the foods that we consume. The presence of these enzymes allows our body to properly break down and digest the foods we eat ensuring that they get utilized efficiently by our body. If all of the eggs, steak, chicken, fish and protein shakes we consume daily are not properly digested then they just go to waste. Get the most out of your protein sources by making sure you take digestive enzymes.

Polydextrose – Polydextrose is used as a replacement for sugar, starch, and fat. Recent studies suggests that polydextrose increases satiety when consumed over several weeks. That means if you drink OxyElite Protein you may feel fuller for a longer time, decreasing hunger and ideally the calories you would have consumed if you would have eaten. [5]

I have to be hones, the first thing that I do when I grab a bottle of protein powder is flip it around and look at the nutrition facts. The first thing I look at is what kind of protein it uses. If I am looking for a fast absorbing post-workout protein, then I hope it contains Whey Protein Isolate. If I am looking for a mid-day protein then I hope it has a blend of slow and fast absorbing protein sources. If I am going to drink a shake right before I go to bed, then I want a supplement that is high in casein so my body can absorb and digest that protein while I am sleeping.

OxyElite Protein Powder contains a blend of whey protein isolate, whey protein concentrate 80% and Micellar Casein.

Whey Protein Isolate – Whey Protein Isolate is one of the highest quality protein powders available. It provides you with the highest value of branched-chain amino acids, and whey protein isolate is absorbed rapidly and deliver essential nutrients to the muscle cells faster than any other form of protein.

Whey Protein Concentrate – They whey protein concentrate used in OxyElite Protein contains 80% concentration. Whey protein concentrate is the most economical form of whey protein available and is typically higher in fat and carbs than whey protein isolate.

Micellar Casein – Faster digesting proteins like whey protein isolate are desirable immediately before and after working out. Slow digestion and absorption micellar casein is more beneficial right before bed when your body goes without food. Micellar Casein turns into a thick gel when it hits your stomach. This allows a steady flow of amino acids over many hours.

Final Thoughts on OxyElite Protein Powder

I would LOVE to know how this protein powder tastes and mixes. It contains great ingredients and USPLabs has a rep of developing awesome supplements. As I have searched the internet I can see that for sure OxyElite Protein Powder will come in chocolate and vanilla flavors. Based upon the research and ingredients that went into this supplement, I am more than excited to try it. Once I do, I will come back and give an update.
