Once and again, a product cannot be judged in terms of medical safety and efficacy when it has not been tested in a structured manner, and when it has not been on the market long enough to generate enough data regarding reported adverse events.
EAS Myoplex consists of (as per the manufacturer- source <;):
  • 42 g of protein with a sustained-release amino acid profile, featuring a blend of rapid and slowly digested proteins, designed to promote muscle protein synthesis.
  • Includes 8.75 g of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). Research shows that BCAAs help muscles recuperate after strenuous exercise and may help reduce exercise-related muscle damage.
  • Rapid release glucose polymer for fast glycogen replacement for depleted muscle.
Come to think of it, these 42 grams of proteins can be obtained through your diet, which is healthier and, obviously, more natural: a 200 gram piece of steak can fuel you with the same amount of proteins. The same concept applies to the glucose, which you can ensure by consuming bananas for instance prior to workout.
In fact, the body of an adult person requires about 1.5-2 grams per kilogram of proteins per day; body builders tend to exceed this amount to 2.5 g/kg/day, thus imposing a load of proteins on the kidneys to be filtered. 
As healthcare professionals, we tend to shy away from promoting for the use of synthetic protein and carb drinks, and reserve them for cases where the person in question has trouble obtaining these nutrients from their daily diet.
In a nutshell, focus on lean meat, fish and eggs to solidify a protein-rich diet, and get your carbs from fruits that have high concentration of sugar (like bananas, dates etc.) especially prior to workout to fuel your muscles and prevent them from tiring out too quickly.
