Muscle Milk has been CYTOSPORT's most successful product, earning a wide following among bodybuilders and athletes. Not quite a protein powder, not quite a meal replacement, and not quite a gainer, Muscle Milk combines elements of all three to deliver what CytoSport formulators feel is THE best blend of nutrients to fuel muscle growth.
Muscle Milk derives its name, and its underlying concept, from human milk. Human milk is a complex but precise mixture of proteins and nutrient fats perfectly matched to the way in which humans absorb and use nutrients to fuel tissue growth. By adhering to this model, Muscle Milk has a higher fat content and calorie content than some other muscle-building products. But don't confuse nutritional fats with body fat you may be trying to shed. Fat is a very important nutrient and, as CytoSport explains, the Lean Lipids in Muscle Milk are entirely healthy fats, much more likely to be used as energy by your body than stored as additional body fat.
The blend of protein and amino acids in Muscle Milk is patterned after the complex blend of proteins and peptides in human milk. It includes slow-releasing casein, fast-releasing whey isolate with supplemental peptides and amino acids. This is CytoSport's Evo-Pro blend and is specifically formulated to support muscle growth, although it's also good for the immune system and intestinal health. Rounding out the formula is CytoSport's Cyto-Vite vitamin-mineral blend. This provides a modest amount of basic vitamins and minerals, but no so much that you'd need to stop taking your daily multi while using Muscle Milk.
How many times a day should you drink muscle milk? You can use it replace any meal any any time. And everyone who's tired of the same old vanilla, chocolate and strawberry options will appreciate the fact that Muscle Milk is available in over 20 great flavors. If you're trying to pack on some muscle but have hit a plateau, give that protein powder a rest and try some Muscle Milk today.
AMERICA'S FAVORITE PROTEIN DRINK!
When MUSCLE MILK was first introduced, CytoSport scientists attempted to emulate one of nature's most anabolic, complete, and balanced foods: human mother's milk. MUSCLE MILK broke the mold, creating a new category of protein supplements while setting a new standard for both taste and performance. As a result, muscle milk has become America's favorite protein drink.
But the science of human metabolism is never static; our understanding of its complexity is expanding everyday. Recently the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC) published a report that updated America's Nutritional goals. Cytosport scientists have evaluated the report and have updated MUSCLE MILK to keep pace with these new developments.
No matter what you ultimate goal may be building muscle mass or sculpting a toned, muscular physique-controlling caloric intake and specific physical activity go hand-in-hand with managing your total weight. When it comes to defining weight control, calories do count. Most Americans need to reduce the number of calories they consume. Since lipids or fats contain approximately twice the caloric energy carbs, minimizing the total fat content in MUSCLE MILK-while maintaining the overall fat-burning benefits of LEANLIPIDS-helps to accomplish this goal.

BEFORE & DURING WORKOUTS Take MUSCLE MILK one hour prior to workout. For a truly awesome workout, take FAST TWITCH Power Workout Drink Mix before and during your workout.
AFTER WORKOUTS Take MUSCLE MILK within one hour of completing your workout. After workouts, the body is in a catabolic state. MUSCLE MILK helps reverse this muscle breakdown by providing the necessary nutrients for muscle synthesis.
PRIOR TO BEDTIME Sleep is actually a catabolic period. Remember, breakfast means to "break your fast." During any fast, you break down precious muscle tissue for energy. MUSCLE MILK will help you wake up more anabolic.
