Shredding Matrix Ingredients
Shredding Matrix is a protein supplement containing ingredients to build lean muscle, while at the same time burning fat and providing nutrition. This is supported through a mix of different ingredients.
- Protein: A mix of instantised whey protein isolate and concentrate, with calcium caseinate.
- Amino Acids: A well dosed mix of both essential and non-essential amino acids.
- Minerals and Fat Burners: A number of minerals important to a bodybuilder, like Calcium for bones and muscles, and Chromium picolinate which can assist fat loss and recovery time.
- Shredding Matrix contains a mix of fat loss ingredients which work in variety of different ways, from classics like L-carnitine to newer ingredients like citrus aurantium (or bitter orange), hailed as the new ephedrine.
Shredding Matrix Pros & Effectiveness
Shredding matrix is designed to be taken up to four times a day and can replace meals. The formulation of both fast and medium-acting proteins is sensible, and will meet protein needs throughout the day. The protein content is tailored by the addition of extra aminos. This ensures optimal ratios are present for efficient muscle growth. The extra BCAAs are well dosed, and the extra L-Tyrosine boosts thyroid function, which raises the metabolism, and it can have positive effects on mood.
The mix of different fat burners ensures all bases are covered. Appetite suppressant stimulants like caffeine and citrus aurantium work synergistically with thermogenic green tea extract and fat transporter L-carnitine, while hydroxy citric acid blocks the absorbtion of carbs. On top of his, chromium picolinate is thought to have a role in the preservation of lean mass during fat loss. Shredding Matrix covers all bases.
Shredding Matrix Cons
While some people like a kick, others prefer to use caffeine free supplements. There are many reasons for this – caffeine can interfere with the absorption of creatine and act as a diuretic, and some people just react badly. While caffeine is a tried and true appetite suppressant and is present in Shredding Matrix in a sensible dose (less than a cup of coffee's worth per serve) some people prefer not to use stimulants, so this is not the right product for them.
Shredding matrix is a relatively simple product. There are some fat loss proteins on the market that have ingredient lists three times as long – some people prefer to hedge their bets on a more complex formulation. That said, Shredding Matrix is a well dosed product, and does have ingredients that promote fat loss through a large number of different mechanisms. In the end, choosing this kind of product is a personal choice, and it's about going with what works. The popularity of Shredding Matrix speaks volumes.
Shredding Matrix Taste and Mixability
Shredding Matrix uses instantised whey powders and mixes very easily into a thin, great tasting shake which is easy to drink day after day. Both the chocolate and vanilla flavours are well received.
Shredding Matrix Verdict
It is easy to see why Shredding Matrix is so popular. Elemental Nutrition have put well dosed, good quality ingredients into a palatable formulation that provides the nutrition to lose fat and build muscle at the same time.
