Elite XT Extended Release Protein is designed to be the ultimate muscle fuel and workout recovery formula. Knowing that protein repairs muscle after the workout and fuels the body throughout the day, Dymatize wanted to develop a product that took recovery to the next level, one that would revolutionize the protein category. Elite XT features Nutrateric, a pharmaceutically developed coating system, is utilized on some of the ingredients to help provide an extended release of protein over a longer, extended period of time. This coating system is pH sensitive and is designed to help provide a prolonged delivery-further enhancing the extended release capacity of Dymatize Elite XT. After a battery of tests and trials, we have developed a calculated protein timing system that we call Sustained Muscle Saturation Technology (SMST). How does SMST work? Different proteins have different chemical compositions and different rates at which they can be assimilated by the body. By developing an absorption "time-line" of the highest quality proteins, we were able to create the basis of Elite XT. To develop Dymatize Elite XT, every facet of protein usage was analyzed. Nitrogen retention, absorption as well as several other factors including specific amino acid profiles were examined. Some of these additional factors included: 1-Rate of Absorption (RA): The rate each different protein source releases its amino acid. 2-Protein Digestibility Correct Amino Acid Score (PDCAAS): An evaluation "best method" used by the FDA and FAO/WHO, which uses nitrogen absorption and amino acid profile to rate quality. 3-Amino Acid Profile: Each protein source has its own unique amino acid profile. 4-Biological Value (BV): Derived from the amount of Nitrogen absorbed over the amount of Nitrogen incorporated into the body. Helps determine the amount of protein absorbed from different protein sources. 5- Net Protein Utilization (NPU): is used to determine the ideal amount of essential amino acids. Dymatize determined that no single existing natural protein source was ideal for achieving extended release probolic effects. The optimal source was found to be a fusion of several different protein sources, including the addition of free form branch chain amino acids and other free form amino acids. Milk derived proteins, including Micellar Casein and Whey protein concentrates, all perfect score holders on both the PDCAAS and the BV scales, form the base of Elite XT. Lastly, we have added the advanced enzyme matrix Zytrix to help aid the efficiency of the absorption of protein and other nutrients found in Elite XT. Furthermore, there is an added lipid blend that is specifically designed to help promote a longer absorption rate of the proteins by creating a complete probolic, nitrogen rich environment which is sustained in the body for an extended period of time. Dymatize Elite XT represents a massive step forward in Extended Release Protein Technology.
Banana Nut flavor is by far the best tasting and mixing powder I’ve tried in over 10 years! Contrary to what others may say it is not amino spiked. Dymatize got it right. The serving size (grams per scoop) is on par with most others including ***** Protein for a fraction of the price. I mix 2 scoops with 16oz water in a shaker cup and have never had a clump to try and chew up. Yeah it’s a little sweet but in my opinion that’s fine, it’s like a piece of bananu nut bread without the guilt. It’s helped me pack on quite a bit of muscle mass with controlled diet and beast workouts. I’m going through about 8-10#s a month and don’t see me getting tired of banana nut any time soon. If you’re looking for a great product at an even better price you’ve found it. For $40 it’s worth a try, much better than dropping $90 on something that turns into a door weight and dust collector. (I have a few of those ***** protein cough cough) everyone is different but I can assure you that you’ll find one their flavors appetizing. Nothing to lose only muscle to gain!! Stay Strong!!
Works great, feel it going through the body when I drink it
The scoop size is huge. There is lots of filler. And by the ingredients list, it looks to be amino spiked. It also has cheaper soy protein. I just wonder how good it really is for you. It does taste decent though.
First off, this protein is incredibly cheap per serving. I dont think i have come across a better deal than this. I got the blueberry muffin flavor, it was super sweet which i enjoyed but sometimes after workouts it would be too much for me. This product has a decent nutritional profile, not as good as some of the other products on the market, but like i said before it is probably the best protein you can buy for this low of price per serving.
I bought this product because it is honestly the best deal around for your money. It provides a mixture of proteins, which digest at different rates to give your muscles plenty of rebuilding capacity. The Rich Chocolate flavor is my favorite, and it tastes exactly like brownie batter. I love it. Best deal for your money, and still tastes amazing.
I ran into this protein a few years ago and loved it. I usually used it for night time before bed, right after my night workouts. I liked the fact that I knew that it was slow digesting protein and would help me with gains during the time I was asleep. The test on the protein is great. I had the blueberry flavor and truly loved it. I honestly felt like it tasted like cake batter. I would recommend this to any person looking for a slow digesting protein.
The blueberry muffin and fudge brownie flavors are great to make protein recipes. Both taste great. The best part it's cheap and Dymatize is a trusthworthy brand.
The fudge brownie flavor is the best this is the best quality protein blend ever made by a prestigious nutritional company everything dymatize makes is great quality this tub will last u 2 month s if used probably this blend is for those looking to lean out more . this blend contains CLA and a bunch of slow digesting proteins I would definitely recommend this for anyone ona budget :)!!!
Priced well. All day protection with fast and slow digesting protein.
An extended release protein. Doesn't make any difference to your results, but it does make you feel fuller. Mixes a lot thicker than a whey, but tastes a bit gritty. Even so I really enjoyed the Fudge Brownie flavour and would buy it again. It isn't a pure isolate, but that makes so little difference, In fact, blends have been shown to be better for muscle gain than pure isolates anyway, so save your money. The Dymatize is good for baking. Just don't overwhelm the other ingredients with the protein or the end result will be quite rubbery. Recommended.
I recently purchased this brand and I'm almost done with the tub. Elite XT is now going to be my go to protein for the following reasons: 1. Taste 10 times better than the regular Dymatize Elite. 2. Mixes easily and doesn't clump up 3. The price is doesn't reflect its quality...super cheap for a really good product.
The flavor of this protein isnt too good. It was hard to take in. The product mixed pretty well which was good. I take in this product at night before bed or post workout with water. Product contains 25 g of protein per scoop which is a plus. At the end I would not recommend this product.
My review is based upon the Fudge Brownie flavor. I bought the Elite XT because I found it was the cheapest option with decent macros and I had heard very highly of it. I just finished my first tub of it and let me say that the taste was amazing! It is the best "**** for your buck protein" i'd recommend. It also worked pretty well in recipes. Anyways, I'd recommend it if your on a strict budget.
This product is cheap because of it's low quality ingredients. Look at the ingredient list and it's loaded with fillers. Just look at the scooper size, it's enormous and you only get 21g of protein. It tastes alright and mixes so-so. If you don't care about what you put in your body and are just strictly looking the macros of this product, then go for it - it's cheap.
I had the banana nut flavor of this protein and it is really good in oats. I added some peanut butter to oats with some of this protein and it was some of the best oats I've ever had. Good value, gets the job done. Didn't have any digestion issues. It is a little chalky if you want shakes so beware if you are particular about texture.
The protein tastes fine and does the job, but it blends so horribly that I would never buy it again.
