When CytoSport first came upon the health supplement scene, the winning product for the brand was their unique whey protein powder, Muscle Milk. Made of various whey protein blends and essentials oils and vitamins to enhance the nutritive value of the product, Muscle Milk became an award-winning sensation with its outstanding, rich flavor and ability to enhance performance in providing users with the proper energy and recovery to withstand and refuel from intense cardiovascular and weight training workouts. Having created a niche in the market, CytoSport decided to build onto their product by creating an even more protein-rich version that meets the needs of athletes that require high servings of protein in their diet to build more muscle–enter Muscle Milk.
A premium version of Muscle Milk, Monster Milk is primarily valued for its flavor and 50g of protein per serving. The Cake Batter flavor is delicious, reminiscent to the taste of yellow cake batter prior to baking. Able to be mixed with water, milk or even juice, the protein supplement is rich and filling and serves as a great meal replacement when necessary, but the best usage of it is before exercise, during exercise, or immediately after exercise.
Before exercise, having already eaten before a workout, Monster Milk delivers a sense of satisfying fullness that can help complete a pre-workout meal; the extra protein from the supplement helps to keep energy levels high going into the workout. If a long, rigorous workout is in mind (likely beyond an hour), Monster Milk is great to keep those same energy levels high while feeding your muscles if they are exhausted from a tough strength-training session. Post-workout is where the Milk really is great.
According to CytoSport, “15-30 minutes after workouts the body’s growth window is open, Monster Milk provides [the necessary protein and vitamins] in amounts never before possible” with regular meals, and it is proclaimed to be “the most powerful, yet easily digestible, protein in history. Although it tastes like an ultra-rich milk shake, Monster Milk’s advanced protein system makes it the ultimate nutritional tool for building monster sized muscle.”
High in fiber with 20% of the recommended daily value and with 100% daily value fulfillment in protein, thiamin, riboflavin, vitamins B6 (200%) and B12 (500%), folate and chromium, Monster Milk is an ideal solution to build healthy muscle tissue and repair the damaged cells that present when free radicals are dispersed throughout the body during intense exercise.
Anyone who is a serious athlete that weight-trains frequently and wants to be able to supplement his or her diet with a fast-acting protein supplement that is easy to mix that is delicious, Monster Milk is a great end to come to when making a choice between other products. While it is not something that replace actual frequent meals, Monster Milk provides great support for your body to stay healthy and encourage continued exercise.
