- LEANLIPIDS: Trans-fat free Medium Chain-Triglycerides (MCT's) are more likely metabolized for muscle energy than stored as fat. Long-chain polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids from sunflower and canola oils provide essential fatty acids.
- Lactose Free
- 20 Vitamins & Minerals
- Amazing, Milkshake taste!
NEW LIPIDS BURN FAT... INSTEAD OF STORING IT!
Leading scientists "rethinking" the role of fats in increasing lean muscle growth have shown all fats are not created equal. The type of fat determines whether you use it for muscle energy or store it as body fat! LEANLIPIDS used in MUSCLE MILK promote fat loss 3 ways:
- MCTs, the predigested "fatless fats", are more likely burned for muscle energy and heat than stored as fat. 20% of human milk and MUSCLE MILK lipids are MCTs. MCTs also promote positive nitrogen balance.
- Long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids are also less likely to be stored as fat. Cytosport uses special enzyme engineering to make these lipids even more functional, promoting anti-inflammatory effects and enhanced mineral retention.
- Recent research reveals calories with engineered lipids, taken before and during workouts, promote leanness. It is thought that these calories are used for workout energy, with less deposited as fat.
So while MUSCLE MILK may contain slightly more fat than older ultra-carb products, their LEANLIPIDS are designed to help you get leaner.
WORLD'S FIRST EVOLUTIONARY MUSCLE BUILDER
MUSCLE MILK helps grow muscle faster than gainers, whey or even creatine. This increased muscle growth is possible because MUSCLE MILK is the first product patterned after Nature's ultimate anabolic food-human mother's milk.
Locked within human mother's milk are long-held secrets to muscle growth potential previously considered impossible. After years of study, Cytosport has unlocked these secrets! They then took the next step and actually duplicated these important muscle growth factors into MUSCLE MILK.
MUSCLE MILK HELPS YOU GROW MUSCLE LIKE NEVER BEFORE, EVEN FOR THE HARDEST GAINERS!
Growth promoting as human milk is, Cytosport found ways to improve on it for even greater muscle synthesis. For example, they reduce lactose and fat, while discovering a way to recreate the lean-promoting lipids in human milk. Plus, they add a breakthrough that enables you to make more of your own creatine.
MUSCLE MILK triggers new levels of muscular growth in 3 ways other products can't:
- CREATINE GCC- HELP SUPPORT YOUR BODY'SOWN CREATINE PRODUCTION - Cytosport discovered a revolutionary method to increase your body's own production of muscle energy critical creatine. These creatine factors help your body to produce more creatine than normal. Creatine supplements are good, but so is your body's making more of its own.
- EVOPRO NATURE'S ULTIMATE ANABOLICPROTEIN-AMINO BLEND - Human milk is composed of highly unique and complex proteins, peptides and amino acids, which is why it grows human muscle tissue so rapidly. EvoPro includes these alpha and beta micellar caseins, a-Lactalbumin, lactoferrin, glutamine peptides and more.
