Below we take an in-depth look into Hi-Tech NitroPro, to see whether this “high tech” mixture really offers a little something more than the competition.
Hi-Tech NitroPro is a specialised protein powder that claims to boost nitrogen retention and fuel muscle-building workouts. It’s produced and sold by Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals, a manufacturer known for making specialist bodybuilding products that draw on risky stimulant ingredients (such as DMAA). Despite their experience in the athletic supplement market, NitroPro remains a rare attempt by Hi-Tech Pharma to create a simple protein supplement.
Customers are unlikely to experience side effects whilst consuming protein powders, although some sources of discomfort are possible when products like these are consumed to excess. Overconsumption of protein powders can lead to unusual bowel movements, overactive thirst, bloating, stomach problems, reduced appetite, headache, and fatigue.
On most websites, a 2lb tub of Hi-Tech NitroPro costs approximately $30, and a 1lb tub costs around $20.
Prices are considerably higher on the iHerb webstore, as well as on the official Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals website (where a 2lb is priced at an absurdly high $49.95). Customers looking to make a big saving need only visit A1 Supplements, where customers can buy 1lb of NitroPro for $21.99 and get another 1lb tub for free!
Hi-Tech NitroPro is a great example of how extremely misleading advertising can be – Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals appear to be trying to sell to customers by simply confusing them.
Whilst reading the advertising spiel backing this product, you’d be forgiven for thinking this was a highly specialist product. Whilst making reference to unfamiliar concepts like Peptide-Bound Amino Acids (PBAAs) and Net Nitrogen Utilisation (NNU), the product description reads like a knowledgeable scientific journal, implying that the manufacturer is a trustworthy expert. In fact, Hi-Tech Pharma is simply using needlessly complex and obscure terms to describe the process of normal, regular protein synthesis. In a nutshell, this product works in precisely the same way as any cheap protein powder out there!
This isn’t a problem in and of itself; protein powders are good at what they do, and Hi-Tech NitroPro is likely a perfectly functional offering (with 24g of whey protein per serving with minimal fat and carbs). However, it falls far short of what was promised.
Some of the most important things to know when choosing a protein powder is whether it is tasty and mixable. All of the available customer reviews we were able to find suggested that Hi-Tech NitroPro is great in this respect, but there aren’t nearly enough reviews out there to be sure (we could only find 7 on the whole of the Internet).
Overall, this protein powder could be great when purchased on the cheap from budget outlets like A1 Supplements, but there’s not enough that’s special or notable enough here for you to consider making it your go-to workout aid.
We do not recommend Hi-Tech NitroPro to our readers.
Hi-Tech NitroPro is a protein powder that comes in a wide variety of flavours, including Neapolitan ice cream, cinnamon graham cracker, banana cream pie, double dutch chocolate, and many more. The manufacturers claim that this product is as truly “high-tech” as its name suggests, utilising complex technology to improve nitrogen retention rates and increase the rate of protein synthesis. It is also implied that this product can achieve higher quality results than normal whey protein powders.
This protein powder is manufactured by Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals, a US-based supplement store based in the USA. Hi-Tech Pharma (as they are often called) is known mainly for their extraordinary history of litigation, having fought long and protracted legal battles with the FTC, FDA, respected university professors, medical authorities, and rival companies. The company is currently fighting to overturn the FDA’s existing ban on the dangerous stimulant DMAA, and continues to sell DMAA-based products until the legal point is clarified. The company is also associated with its selling of a useless form of ephedra, and other products that attempt to mimic and impersonate illegal steroids. The company can be contacted via the contact details provided on the website.
The directions for use are as follows:
The official product page for Hi-Tech NitroPro makes a number of bold claims about this protein powder, many of which can be boiled down to one general statement: this product is more technologically advanced and high quality than other whey protein powders.
Like other whey protein powders, NitroPro aims to fuel improved muscular performance and strength in the gym and reduce recovery times. However, it also claims to provide customers with a source of special Peptide-Bound Amino Acids (PBAAs), which are supposedly absorbed quicker and increase nitrogen retention. This results in a raised rate of Net Nitrogen Utilisation (NNU), which in turn makes it so that relatively more protein is actually used for protein synthesis.
To top it all off, the protein presented in this product is also hydrolysed, which the manufacturer promises that it delivers a faster and more effective rate of protein synthesis. Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals also finally claim that NitrPro is the best protein powder available for those looking to build lean muscle without adding unwanted fat.
The advertising copy that backs NitroPro is truly rubbish of the highest order. Despite attempting to bamboozle customers with reams and reams of scientific-sounding nonsense, there really is nothing special about this protein powder. The term “peptide-bound amino acid” is simply an unnecessarily complicated word for normal amino acid chains, the same kind that are found in any protein powder. Providing hydrolysed protein powder can make it absorb faster, but NitroPro is hardly the only product to utilise this technique.
There is nothing high tech about this powder, and there is no reason to imagine that it will boost nitrogen retention and result in any greater amount of protein absorption than any other product out there!
Protein powders, in general, are known for helping to fuel muscular gains in the gym and quicken recovery time, and NitroPro will also help with this.
The ingredients found in Hi-Tech NitroPro are listed below. The quantities listed are correct for 1 heaped scoop (30.5g) of powder.
Protein shakes do not generally come with too many side effects. Overuse of whey protein shakes can sometimes cause increased bowel movements, thirst, bloating, nausea, cramps, reduced appetite, fatigue and headaches. Those suffering with kidney issues or those that require prescription medication should check with their doctor before trying out protein shakes, as the increased protein intake could cause issues.
Not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Not suitable for anyone under the age of 18. If you are taking any medications or are unsure about the suitability of this supplement for you, consult your doctor before purchase.
We were only able to find 6 customer reviews online, although all were highly positive. Customers seem to appreciate the product’s taste and mixability, as well as the reasonable prices offered by some 3rd party sellers like A1 Supplements.
This is my go to for post-workout protein. This is super easy to digest and absorption is very high. Taste is just what I am looking for. Smooth texture as well. I’m a huge fan of Nitropro! I’ll continue to order this in the future.
This protein tastes great, mixes smoothly and is much lower in cholesterol and fat than other, cheaper proteins. The chocolate and vanilla taste just like a milkshake from a burger bar, smooth and creamy and wonderful.
Great tasting chocolate and easily mixable. No clumps whatsoever
NitroPro is now my favorite post workout protein powder. I sometimes just mix it in water for a nice thin easy drinking shake, but sometimes mix it with ice for a little more of a thicker shaker. Either way, tastes really good and mixes very easily
On the official Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals website, no mention is made of a money-back guarantee or a returns policy of any kind.
Hi-Tech Nitropro is available to buy from many specialist online retailers, including A1 Supplements, Best Price Nutrition, My Supplement Store, NetNutri, iHerb, DPS Nutrition, and the official Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals webstore.
