Muscle Milk Light RTD

 


Description


CytoSport's Muscle Milk Light RTD has the same performance as the original Muscle Milk, but with 44% less calories and 1/3 the fat. This power drink delivers the same muscle-building whey and casein proteins, amino acids and medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). Muscle Milk Light is specially formulated to stimulate muscle growth and recovery similar to the benefits of mother's milk. It is designed for individuals who want to maximize lean muscle gains and recovery while reducing caloric intake to support weight loss.

Muscle Milk Light contains a complete ratio of whey and casein proteins to stimulate muscle growth and repair. Whey protein is a major protein found in milk and contains an optimal concentration of amino acids (protein building blocks). Casein protein is a slow digesting protein found in milk and can provide a steady release of amino acids for up to 7 hours. Whey protein and casein synergistically promote positive nitrogen retention (stored muscle protein).

The “lean fats” used in Muscle Milk include MCTs, lipids (fat molecules)
composed of medium-chain fatty acids. These unique lipids are more easily
digested by the body than other larger fat molecules. As a result, they are
more likely burned for muscle energy than stored as fat. Research suggests
that MCT can promote fat burning (lipogenesis) and calorie burning
(thermogenesis) and may be used for muscle energy.

Dosage and Directions

For pre-workout benefits, drink 45 minutes to 1 hour before your workout. This provides the caloric energy and nutrients needed for intense workouts.
