21 - 22 grams (depends on flavor) of high-quality protein per 26 gram serving
Equal blend of whey isolate, hydrolyzed whey, & micellar casein
Ideal combination of fast and slow digesting proteins
4.7 - 4.8 grams of naturally occurring BCAAs per serving
100 - 101 calories
No artificial ingredients or fillers
Muscle Feast Premium Blend is designed to:
Feed muscles for up to 7 hours
Support muscle growth & recovery
Maximize muscle protein synthesis
Help meet daily protein requirements
Provide 3.8 grams of naturally occurring glutamine and precursors
Available in 4 flavor options:
Due to the bitterness of hydrolyzed whey protein this product is not as smooth tasting as our Whey Protein Isolate and 100% Whey products. If taste is a concern for you, this might not be the right product.
Mix one serving (1 level scoop) with 6 to 8 ounces of water, milk or milk substitute, or beverage of your choice. Muscle Feast proteins will mix with just a few turns of a spoon, are free of "thickening agents", and are most importantly all natural.
*Nutritional values vary slightly between flavors
Whey Isolate, Hydrolyzed Whey, Micellar Casein
What is it?
A protein blend is a combination of various sources of protein mixed in one product. The idea is by combining proteins with varying rates of digestion and absorption that muscle protein synthesis times will be optimized. For example, whey isolate ingestion leads to a rapid spike in amino acids levels which increases muscle protein synthesis more than micellar casein. On the other hand, micellar casein tends to have a more anticatabolic effect than whey isolates and prolongs muscle protein synthesis to a greater extent. In theory, the combination of the two means greater increases in lean muscle mass and shorter recovery times compared to when ingested separately.
What does the research say?
A 2006 study conducted by Kerksick et al. examined the influence of a “fast” protein source (whey) compared to a blend of fast and slow proteins (whey and casein), ingested post-exercise over a 10-week period of resistance training. Subjects who ingested the blend of fast and slow protein showed significantly greater increases in muscle mass (+1.8 kg) than those who ingested only the fast protein.
Who is it best for?
Blends are best for individuals who want to reap the benefits from having multiple sources of protein included in one powder.
How quickly does it digest/absorb and raise amino acid levels?
No research exists at this point showing how quick and how long protein blends elevate amino acid concentrations in the blood, but in theory, it should fall somewhere in the middle between whey and casein.
When is the best time to take it?
Protein blends are best taken 30-60 minutes pre-workout, immediately post workout, between meals or even right before bed.
