CytoSport’s Monster Milk

Description


CytoSport’s Monster Milk delivers a high protein shake enhanced with patented Kre-Alkalyn (a buffered creatine). It also contains a proprietary protein blend, creatine GCC, Leanlipids Plus (MCTs and CLA), maltodextrin, chicory inulin and Aminogen. Monster Milk is specially formulated for athletes and bodybuilders to maximize muscle growth, energy, leanness, recovery and performance.


The proprietary protein blend includes milk protein isolate, whey protein isolate, caseins, lactoferrin, glutamine, essential amino acids and BCAAs (branched chain amino acids). This potent combination of fast and slow proteins synergistically promotes positive nitrogen retention (stored muscle protein) for hours. Conditionally essential amino acid glutamine helps prevent muscle tissue breakdown and support muscle repair. BCAAs valine, leucine and isoleucine promote performance and reduce fatigue. The addition of Aminogen (a patented, naturally derived plant enzyme) assists in protein digestion and assimilation.


Studies suggest that creatine supplementation can increase muscle mass, energy, strength, endurance and recovery. Kre-Alkalyn is a patented buffered creatine formulated to prevent the conversion of creatine to the waste product creatinine before reaching muscle tissue. Creatine GCC (glycocyamine, betaine) is a creatine precursor that helps support the body’s own creatine production. Together, Kre-Alkalyn and creatine GCC require no loading and have better absorption without “creatine bloat” side effects.


Lean Lipids Plus calorically dense sunflower oil, canola oil, CLA (conjugated linolenic acid) and MCTs (medium chain fatty acids) provide energy for muscle growth. Human clinical studies suggest that CLA helps promote fat loss and increased lean muscle. The addition of maltodextrin complex carbs and chicory inulin help sustain muscle glycogen (stored energy) and provide dietary fiber.


Pros


Monster Milk contains no lactose, 10 grams of fiber and 50 grams of protein per serving.


Monster Milk has the following benefits:


• 50 grams of proprietary protein blend promotes nitrogen retention

• Buffered creatine requires no loading phase

• Provides 10 grams of dietary fiber and maltodextrin complex carbs

• Aminogen plant enzyme aids protein digestion


Cons


Individuals who are allergic to dairy products should avoid taking whey protein.


Anecdotal evidence reports a decrease in water retention and the elimination of creatine bloat with Kre-Alkalyn supplementation. However, no clinical studies have been conducted on Kre-Alkalyn at this time. Large doses of creatine monohydrate are associated with side effects such as bloating, dehydration, stomach upset and muscle cramping.


Pregnant or lactating women or people with kidney disease should not supplement with creatine.


Glycocyamine can increase harmful homocysteine levels in the blood. At least four times the amount of betaine must be taken to counteract this side effect.


Ingesting MCTs on an empty stomach can cause GI (gastrointestinal) upset.


Some studies suggest that long-term use of CLA could increase the risk of developing heart disease.


Some people may experience flatulence or diarrhea with inulin use.


Pregnant or lactating women, people with pre-existing medical conditions or those taking medications should consult a physician before taking Monster Milk.
