The only other amino acid I think is worth taking is L-Citrulline, Citrulline Malate 200 Grams Powder + Free Beta Alanine 200 Grams. This one actually increases the ability to signal muscle cells and releases growth hormone, also increases the metabolism naturally. I don't believe in taking amino blends, but if they are included in the protein I am taking, I won't complain. I will however, still add the necessary components to build muscle and I have always preferred to go to the ones that have been proven to work.
So, if your looking for the best tasting protein (i.e. actually tastes like a chocolate milkshake), then you can do no better than Muscle Milk. One tip is to put some ice in the blender when mixing, makes it taste almost like a malt. And unless you're in a serious bulking phase, drinking this post-workout makes the most sense, since your body will suck up the extra sugar and fat that make this shake taste so good and use it for recovery.
before, after work, also for play.
started to feel tired, some fatigue.
sports science major said "this is what you need"
low in sugar compared to other brands,

i bought again, vanilla i demand!
smooth, tasty, not gritty like sand.
If you are thinking about getting this product but you are not sure if it is appropriate for you let me let you know why it probably is, or probably isn't or at least you should go easy on it.
Although this is no "weight gainer", it is between a regular protein powder and weight gainer, since 2 scoops have 350 calories. 160 of those are from fats, 8 of them saturated. MCTs fats are easily burned as energy, but you can still find nutritionists that say that's just not true. So it's up to you. I would go with bodybuilders and athletes that love the product since, well, they are the, literally, living proof.
When should you drink it? The manufacturer tells you that you should consume it after waking up, before working out, after working out, and before sleeping...hehe well manufacturers are always telling us to consume their product as much as we can for "better results" but the truth is that supplements should be used wisely and aren't magic so don't worry about consuming it 4 times a day. Besides, 160 times 4 are 640 calories from fat. That's 30% of 2000. You should get about 25% of your calories from fat (if you really wanna be lean) so if you mix the muscle milk with soy milk and you eat close to 3000 calories, that's almost all the fats you should get. Nothing else, no peanut butter, no almonds, etc. Besides there's no really need of muscle milk after waking up and before workout. Everyone knows that whey protein is the best pre workout protein due to its fast effect. But I get it after workout and before sleeping.
Does it work? Well, if you have a good workout and you have a good diet it does work. I have dropped some body fat % since I started to take it and I have gained some muscle mass without gaining any fat.Read more ›
Label says "32g of Protein" in the front, but that's only if you use 2 scoops, bringing the total amount of servings per container down to 32. So, if you want to consume about 25-30 grams of protein per shake, as most other protein powders do, you are getting HALF what you'd expect for a 5lb container (it comes out to nearly $100 for the 64 servings or so you'd expect for a 5lb container).
After weighing that, I'm sticking to some great advice I read and mixing 100% Whey (any brand you like) with milk to provide the casein at night and that gives me the similar product as this for half the cost.
