Muscle Milk RTD


Description


CytoSportís Muscle Milk RTD features metabolically favorable proteins, amino acids and lean-promoting fats to stimulate muscle growth and recovery similar to the benefits of motherís milk. Muscle Milkís EvoPro matrix contains a complex ratio of whey and milk proteins and micellar caseins for muscle growth and repair. Muscle Milkís trans fat-free lipid complex contains lean lipids (fats) including medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) for efficient fat burning.

Micellar casein is the natural form of undenatured casein protein found in milk. They are slow digesting proteins that enhance muscle growth. Research suggests that micellar casein provides a steady release of amino acids (protein building blocks) into the bloodstream for as many as 7 hours after ingestion.

Whey protein is a major protein found in milk and contains an optimal concentration of amino acids. Whey protein and micellar casein synergistically promote positive nitrogen retention (stored muscle protein). Athletes and body builders can benefit from whey and micellar casein protein supplementation, to enhance muscle gains and recovery.

About 20 percent of human milk contains MCTs. These fats are also naturally found in coconut oil, palm kernel oil, and butter. MCTs are lipids (fat molecules) composed of medium-chain fatty acids. These unique lipids are more easily digested by the body than other larger fat molecules. MCTs are a direct energy source for the body and increase the bodyís metabolism. Research suggests that MCT can promote fat burning (lipogenesis) and calorie burning (thermogenesis) and may be used for muscle energy.
