Reflex Peptide Fusion Supplement Information
Reflex Nutrition on 'Peptide Fusion' -
Making the Ultimate Protein Powder [Peptide Fusion] and Dispelling Myths
about Whey Protein.
We've (Reflex Nutrition) been in the business of making sports nutrition
supplements for well over a decade. And when I say "making supplements"
I mean just that. Reflex Nutrition is in the very enviable position of
being the only, and longest established, ISO9001 registered manufacturer
of sports nutrition supplements in Europe.
During this last decade we've focused very heavily on repeatable quality
that can be measured both in the lab and in the real tangible results
received through use of Peptide Fusions. Our wide range of sports supplements including
famous products such as Instant Whey, Instant Mass and Progen are now
joined by even more exciting sports supplements, including a new product that we
believe is firmly the "ultimate protein powder". Peptide Fusion.
At Reflex Nutrition we are continually approached by customers asking
for a comparable sports supplement that would directly compete with a certain well
known protein blend comprised of whey, micellar casein, egg and glutamine
peptide. I'd be the first to admit that it's no easy task, and perhaps
even controversial. Since we're not in the business of simply making a
direct copy we were faced with the task of making a superior alternative
here in our factory in the U.K
But before I continue, I'd like to address a misconception when people
claim "all whey protein derived from cheese manufacturing is denatured
and does not contain any undenatured protein fractions originally found
in native whey."
Technology has moved on dramatically in the dairy industry and it's fair
to say that the vast majority of whey protein offered today is vastly
superior in terms of composition and quality compared to say 10 years
ago. For quite some time we've listed the various protein fractions found
in our whey protein supplements on the label. The percentages of fractions
are calculated by lab analysis. i.e the whey protein is tested for whey
fractions after it is manufactured. They are undenatured. I'm sure you
may have been told otherwise, especially if you have been taking supplements
for a while. In fact I'm sure you've been told that the process of pasteurising
whey protein will render it useless, as will the process of making cheese
with pH changes. There is some truth in this, but only some; we know because
we are the only ISO9001 registered supplement company in the world to
operate an onsite pasteurisation facility for our Whey Refresh supplement.
Our production manager has been pasteurising milk products longer than
most supplement companies have been in business. We know the exact amount
of time and temperature necessary to pasteurise whey protein successfully
without denaturing the protein fractions. So when does whey protein become
denatured?? When you pasteurise whey protein for longer periods of time
than necessary the protein molecules will denature changing their structure
and electrical charge – thus losing their original benefits. You
can see this yourself at home by simply mixing some of your whey protein
with water and heating it. Let it simmer for one minute, let it cool,
and you'll be left with a gooey mess. Nearly all the whey fractions will
have become truly undenatured.
Now let's imagine that scenario in a full scale dairy production line.
It would be a total disaster! Hence dairies are very careful to use the
legal minimum amount of heat to ensure that the whey does not ruin the
heat exchangers in their pasteurisers.
When milk is pasteurised it is heated via a special heat exchanger to
72 degrees C and held at that temperature for 20 seconds. The milk then
returns back into the heat exchanger where the heat is removed to cool
the milk down to 25-30 degrees C. This process is very quick and has little
effect on the protein fractions.
Gustavo Bounous and Peptide Fusion Protein
Gustavo Bounous is famous within the whey protein industry for his fantastic
work with the effects of whey protein and immune function. Specifically
he has worked extensively with the effects that whey protein has on glutathione
levels in the human body – the master anti oxidant in our bodies.
He continues to do so and the whole industry has a great deal to thank
him for. Especially while forumaltion Peptide Fusion.
Since the early 1990's Dr Gustavo Bounous has worked with a highly reputable
company in Canada. They develop a specialist range of nutraceutical supplements
that are very successfully sold throughout Canada and the USA –
specifically to raise glutathione levels. Dr Bounous and the Canadian
nutraceutical company formed a strong working relationship with Glanbia
(pioneers in whey protein technology). In fact during the 1990's Reflex
also formed a relationship with Glanbia and became the first company in
Europe to utilise their new flagship sports supplement called CFM Whey Protein which
today has become a household name within the industry. Our relationship
with Glanbia differed to that of Dr Bounous's since our interest was the
potential muscle building ability of whey protein and to a lesser degree
the immune effects.
Today Reflex Nutrition still works with Glanbia and utilises their expertise
in the field of whey protein and perhaps of more relevance their huge
expertise with preserving whey protein fractions in their native undenatured
state. At this point I will tell you that Glanbia uses sweet dairy whey
derived from cheese manufacture for their whey protein supplements and have
always done so. Reflex Nutrition use a number of different supplements from
Glanbia ranging from bioactive whey proteins through to their latest and
most exciting whey fraction called ActiNOS.
To conclude then, it is proven scientifically, that native undenatured
whey fractions from cheese manufacture are indeed widely available. They're
also one of the three main ingredients in our new ultimate protein powder
- Peptide Fusion.
Enter the birth our new flagship protein "Peptide Fusion".
Our small team of highly focused and professional individuals worked
on the Peptide Fusion project which has been one of the most challenging
tasks to date. To begin with we needed to address a number of key issues
with current offerings in the market place. In order of importance for
Peptide Fusion, the top 5 were as follows:
1) Quality and choice of raw materials. Key to the success of all Reflex
supplements it would be of utmost importance to ensure that we used superior
ingredients with every aspect of Peptide Fusion. This included using the
finest undenatured proteins, proven and assayed in the lab. Custom manufactured
flavourings, natural colourings and of course a complete absence of anything
that was not necessary like added salt, artificial colouring etc into
2) Peptide Fusion would be transparent in formulation. What does this
mean? Well by this we mean that the ratios of the main 3 proteins would
be listed as found in Peptide Fusion so that customers would know exactly
what they are getting for their money. Often the customer does not know
exactly what they are being sold with regard to protein blends; so called
secret "proprietary blends" are sometimes nothing more than
a tub of low quality whey with a scattering of low quality milk, egg and
cheap soy. You can nearly always tell by looking at the ingredients list,
if whey protein appears first then the majority of the protein in the
tub will be whey protein because legally ingredients have to be listed
in order of quantity. That's not want you want if you're buying a blend
for time release properties; ideally you'd want to see micellar casein
first on the ingredient list. Our new Peptide Fusion contains a blend
of 33:33:33 Micellar Casein, Egg White Isolate and undenatured whey protein
with all protein fractions present and proven by lab assay. The formulation
is finished in a base of glutamine peptides, digestive enzymes and Lactospore
3) Taste is always subjective but we've gone to great lengths using customised
nature identical flavourings to ensure that Peptide Fusion surpasses your
expectations with regard to taste. Flavours such as Chocolate Mint, Strawberry,
Vanilla and Banana will certainly keep you coming back for more. Importantly,
and unlike other brands, you will not find any cheap fillers, added sugar,
salt or artificial colours in Reflex Peptide Fusion.
4) Price. Its no use Reflex Nutrition making the ultimate protein powder
and then charging an unrealistically high price. It's true that you can
expect Peptide Fusion to be better value than any of our competition because
of our unique manufacturing capabilities but it's still very difficult
to keep prices lower than the competition given the high prices of the
quality raw materials we use. Lets just say that you'll be pleasantly
surprised by the price of Peptide Fusion.
5) Guarantee. Many, many supplements claim everything and deliver virtually
nothing to back it up. We absolutely guarantee what we sell. Take Peptide
Fusion to any lab to test our protein ratios, test the protein claims,
test for the whey fractions, and you'll find that it's all there. And
if for any reason you're not happy we'll refund your purchase price immediately,
in full, no questions.
Peptide Fusion will be available in 2.1kg tubs. I'm also very pleased
to inform you that all of the electricity Reflex Nutrition uses to manufacture
Peptide Fusion comes from 100% renewable electricity
