NXT Beef Protein Isolate
The idea of beef protein isolate may seem off-putting to some people who are used to the taste and texture of whey or other protein powders. However, NXT Beef Protein Isolate is a great tasting and refreshing alternative to whey protein and is suitable for those who are allergic to dairy or soy… and even has a higher protein content than many leading whey protein brands.
NXT Beef Protein Isolate mixes more thinly than a typical whey protein and has a range of flavours that are more like what you’d expect from BCAA’s. This means that the taste is refreshing and easy palate, making it an ideal source of protein for those who maybe struggle with digestive issues or who want to take on protein during training without feeling bloated or discomfort. As beef protein is a complete source of amino acids, NXT Beef Protein Isolate provides you with all your essential amino acids to support recovery and muscle growth.
Claims and benefits made by NXT about their Beef Protein Isolate
NXT Nutrition claims that their Beef Protein Isolate is a high quality ‘alternative source of protein to tradition protein shakes’. This is ideal for anyone who is allergic to dairy and due to its non-dairy origin and zero sugar content is claimed as being suitable or for those who are on a low carb or paleo diets.
Beef Protein Isolate ingredients

As NXT Nutrition Beef Protein Isolate contains a high percentage of protein, zero fat and only 5.5g of sugars, this provides only 119kcal per serving. This makes NXT Nutrition Beef Protein Isolate perfect for those who are looking to boost protein intake whilst keeping their calorie intake in check.
CSN's recommended usage
Our recommended usage is to take one serving either immediately before or after training. For those with higher protein requirements then NXT Nutrition Beef Protein Isolate can be used as an extra protein source throughout the day. This may have an advantage for those who struggle to eat enough protein as it is quite easy to drink and not as thick or challenging to digest as other protein shakes.
This also means it can be used almost in the same way as a BCAA supplement, either intra-workout or sipped on throughout the day, except that it provides all your essential amino acids, not just the branch chains, which may have a muscle building advantage.
Can it be stacked with any other sports supplements?
NXT Nutrition Beef Protein Isolate can be stacked with any supplement that is in line with your goals. Pre or post workout it goes really well with either Vitargo or CSN’s Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin, which will help fuel your training and recovery for both the performance athlete and those looking to build lean muscle. We might also consider the addition of creatine to help saturate muscle creatine stores, which can help boost performance in the gym, leading to increased strength and muscle growth.
As NXT Nutrition Beef Protein Isolate is simply a high-quality source of protein then it can be used alongside all your favourite supplements that are in line with your goals. Not sure about what those supplements are? Then check out the ‘Goals’ tab at the top of our page for more suggestions.
