Myoplex products are nutritional beverages, shakes, and bars that contain a mixture of protein, carbohydrates, fat, vitamins, and minerals. Although these products provide these nutritional ingredients, it is not known if they work for promoting weight loss, enhancing muscle mass, or improving endurance. While most people tolerate Myoplex well, you may not be able to use these products if you have certain health conditions.

- Myoplex Original
- Myoplex Deluxe
- Myoplex Lite
- Myoplex Carb Control™.

Is Myoplex Effective?Myoplex is effective for providing calories, fat, protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals. However, it is not known if the products work (or work any better than other products) for promoting weight loss, enhancing muscle mass, or improving endurance.
Dosing InformationIt is generally recommended that people consume one to three Myoplex products per day as part of five or six smaller meals per day. They may be especially suited to breakfast or a post-workout meal. Unless you are trying to gain weight, it is not a good idea to simply add Myoplex products to your existing diet, as the products contain fat and calories.
