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.
PRECISION PROTEIN BLEND
We’ve developed a unique mix of complete multi-source proteins. These include calcium sodium caseinate, milk protein isolate, whey protein isolate, whey protein hydrolysate, whey protein concentrate, lactoferrin, L-glutamine and taurine, which provide amino acids - the building blocks of muscle tissue. Translation? High quality protein to help you recover from exercise and build muscle.
The Lean Lipids used in Muscle Milk are a blend of sunflower and canola oils and medium chain triglycerides (MCTs). Long-chain polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids from sunflower and canola oils provide essential fatty acids. The body can use MCTs for muscle energy. What does this mean? MCTs are less likely to be stored as fat than typical fats. (See nutrition facts for total and saturated fat content.)
18 -19 GRAMS OF CARBOHYDRATES (DEPENDING ON FLAVOR†)
Our carbohydrate blend contains a mix of complex carbohydrates, dietary fiber and fructose. Complex carbohydrates are composed of energy supplying glucose units, dietary fiber is valuable for intestinal health and the body can use fructose to make glycogen. What are we trying to say? Muscle Milk contains a mix of carbohydrates with unique functions.
