Cytosport - EvoPro Sustained Release Protein Chocolate - 38.4 oz. (2.4 lbs / 1088 g)
CytoSport EvoPro Sustained Release Protein (formerly Low Carb Diet Perfect Protein) is premium multi-source protein. EvoPro is the protein inside famous Muscle Milk; the world's best tasting, ultimate lean muscle formula. EvoPro contains the same powerful protein, while limiting the fats and carbohydrates. EvoPro was formulated by the ultimate protein designer, Nature, to be maximally anabolic and anti-catabolic. CytoSport believes EvoPro is the most powerful, clinically complete, perfect protein ever available.
Beats Whey Alone
Whey is great! However, it is only part of mother's milk - the gold standard anabolic formula. CytoSport believes that whey works best when combined with micellar casein. That's why mother's milk contains both. A popular misconception, touted mostly by the whey guys, is that whey is better because it is absorbed faster. In fact, it is a casein fraction that first empties from your stomach after ingestion, not whey. In total, whey is faster acting, while micellar casein releases protein, peptides and amino acids over a longer period of time. Together, whey and casein provide protein coverage superior to either whey or casein individually.
- Complete Protein Blend: More complete than whey for prolonged protein supplied energy, rich in highly anti-catabolic micellar casein
- LeanLipid Complex: Trans-fat free, fast-burning muscle fuel source
- Muscle Repair: Abundant in L-Glutamine and fortified with Glutamine Peptides to support the immune system and enhance muscle recovery
- Low Carb: Only 2 grams of carbohydrates and 0 sugars. Perfect for low-carb diets!
- Lactose Free: Doesn’t leave you feeling bloated or stuffed
- Amazing flavor-rich taste!
The Power of Peptides
Glutamine, the most abundant amino acid in human milk, is also high in EvoPro. There are 3 grams of added L-Glutamine and a total of 7.6 grams of glutamine and glutamine precursors in every serving of EvoPro. Glutamine protects muscle, improves recovery, boosts immunity and more. CytoSport takes glutamine a step further by including glutamine peptides in addition to free form L-Glutamine. Glutamine peptides have been shown to greatly increase absorption compared to this amino acid in its free form.
An anabolic window is a period of time in which potential for recovery and muscle growth is greatest. When the window is open, protein synthesis and muscle growth can occur. Positive nitrogen balance is at its peak. When the window closes, you go into negative nitrogen balance and a catabolic state. EvoPro keeps your anabolic window open longer by delivering the ultimate protein, whey and micellar caseins.

Dr. George Brooks, Ph.D. sits on the board of advisors for CytoSport. During his graduate studies at the University of Michigan, his extensive research in the areas of "Oxygen Debt" and "Anaerobic Threshold" lead to several hypotheses and fundamental revisions in the understanding of the metabolic response to exercise. The knowledge gained in these efforts led to the invention of PolyLactate and the formulation of the original Cytomax.
Dr. Brooks was recognized for his lifetime of outstanding scientific contributions related to sports medicine and exercise science at the 2007 Awards and Tributes Committee of the American College of Sports Medicine. He was awarded the Honor Award at the Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana. The ACSM Honor Award is the highest award of the College given to only one individual each year.
