 BSN’s Lean Dessert

Description

BSN's Lean Dessert is a low calorie, low carb and low fat protein drink mix formulated for weight management, calorie-restricted and/or low carb diets.

It includes a Sustained Release Multi-Functional Micellar Protein Matrix, ELG-Stimulators, Protein Utilization Enzymes and essential minerals. Lean Dessert is designed for athletes who want to maximize lean muscle gains while reducing caloric intake and maintaining a low carb diet to support weight management.

The Sustained Release Multi-Functional Micellar Protein Matrix contains ultra-filtered and microfiltered whey protein concentrates and isolates, alpha-lactalbumin, calcium caseinates and micellar alpha and beta-caseins. Whey and casein proteins are found in milk and contain an optimal concentration of amino acids that promote positive nitrogen retention (stored muscle protein). Casein protein is a slow digesting protein that provides a steady release of amino acids for up to seven hours. This sustained release protein blend synergistically promotes muscle growth and recovery.

ELG Stimulators (Energy, Leaning and Growth Stimulators) include glutamine peptides, canola oil and MCTs. The conditionally essential amino acid glutamine helps prevent muscle tissue breakdown and supports muscle recovery and repair. MCT lipids (fat molecules) are composed of medium-chain fatty acids. These unique lipids are more easily digested by the body than larger fat molecules and more likely burned for muscle energy than stored as fat. Canola oil, a source of beneficial omega fatty acids, enhances fat metabolism and promotes lean muscle.

The Active Protein Utilization Enzymes include Aminogen and papain. Aminogen is a naturally derived, patented plant enzyme that aids in protein digestion and assimilation. Papain (derived from papayas) is a digestive enzyme and natural anti-inflammatory agent.


Pros

BSN's Lean Dessert contains only 130 calories, 3 grams of fat and 7 grams of carbs per serving. It is aspartame free. Lean Dessert's sustained release protein blend offers up to seven hours of amino acid nitrogen delivery.

Lean Dessert has the following benefits:

  • Features a low calorie, low carb and low fat protein drink mix
  • Supports weight management, calorie-restricted and/or low carb diets
  • 7 hour sustained release protein blend
  • Glutamine enhances muscle repair and recovery
  • MCTs and canola oil maximize lean muscle and fat metabolism

Cons

People who are allergic to dairy products should avoid whey protein.

Be very careful with this as it reacts with many different medications. My advice would be to find something different if you are on medications. However if you are not on medications this is a great product.
