Basic guidelines on eating well to fuel training sessions suggest regular meals containing whole foods, which is exactly right, but what do you turn to when real food is not an option? Maybe you have a busy or unpredictable work schedule that does not allow you to go off and enjoy a meal. Fortunately, Relex among other supplement manufacturers realised there was a need for a convenient supplement that contained adequate nutrition for hard training individuals, and created the meal replacement formula, Progen.
Reflex has spared no expense in making Progen a top-notch supplement for those who demand the very best nutrition, shown in the carefully chosen ingredients selection, which includes a proprietary protein blend, organic barley and oats, and a range of important vitamins and minerals.
Getting the right macro nutrients in a meal goes far beyond simply eating ‘x’ grams of protein, carbohydrates or fats – the type and quality of each can play just as an important role. This is where Progen differentiates itself from the pack, each sachet contains controlled ratios of each of the major nutrient groups, sourcing each from high quality ingredients to deliver a supplement worth replacing a meal with.
At the heart of each sachet is a proprietary protein blend containing protein from various high quality sources, including Micellar Casein, egg whites and whey protein. These three protein sources come together to deliver a highly bioavailable protein that can be utilised by the body quickly but will also still be drip-feeding protein into the body several hours later, thanks to the different characteristics shown by each of these three protein sources.
The next big difference in the ingredients list is the chosen souce of carbohydrates. For Progen, Reflex has chosen not to use a cheap maltodextrin like many competing meal replacement formulas, but instead has used a wholly natural, organic blend of barley and oats. Along with the naturally occring vitamins and minerals found within this blend, the biggest positive effect of using a complex source of carbohydrates is on blood sugar levels which will not spike to the same degree due to the low glycaemic index (GI) of oats and barley – potentially reducing the amount of calories being stored as fat in the body.
Reflex has included a bunch of other nutritional goodies ranging from vitamins and minerals to probiotics, digestive enzymes and more, all with the purpose of keeping your body in great shape and able to take whatever you throw at it.
- A convenient way to meet your body’s nutritional requirements when solid food is not an option.
- A quality protein blend made from three distinct protein sources to enable protein to be delivered over time.

- Synergistic blend of vitamins and minerals to keep your body in tip top condition.
