Cytosport - Genuine Muscle Milk Nature's Ultimate Lean Muscle Formula Cookies 'N Crème - 39.5 oz. (2.47 lbs / 1120 g)
Cytosport Genuine Muscle Milk Cookies and Cream Nature's Ultimate Lean Muscle Protein is manufactured free of banned substances in a NSF GMP for sport registered facility. Muscle Milk™ is a great-tasting, protein-enhanced functional formula that combines 32 grams of high-quality protein along with premium ingredients to provide sustained energy and recovery for performance and lifestyle.
Muscle Milk consists of a precise blend of multi-source proteins, functional fats, low-sugar carbohydrates and 20 vitamins and minerals in a lactose-free formula. Muscle Milk is an ideal nutritional choice whether you are a performance athlete, watching your diet, or simply desire to gain strength & maintain lean muscle mass.
When Muscle Milk was first introduced, CytoSport attempted to emulate human mother's milk, one of nature's most anabolic, complete and balanced foods. In doing that, Muscle milk created a new category of protein products, while setting a new standard for both taste and performance. As a result, Muscle Milk has become America's favorite protein drink.
Precision Protein Blend
Muscle Milk contains a precise blend of proteins designed to create the optimal environment for exercise recovery and muscle growth. This precision protein blend contains rapid-releasing whey and slower digesting micellar caseins from milk protein isolate/concentrate plus calcium and sodium caseinates. This creates a constant supply of amino acids, the building blocks of muscle tissue.
Choose the Right Kind of Fat!
The Lean Lipids used in Muscle Milk are more likely burned for muscle energy and heat than stored as fat. Medium-chain triglycerides (MCT), the pre-digested, fast-burning fats help provide the caloric energy needed to fuel exercise and recovery. Polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids from canola and sunflower oil provide essential omega-3, 6 and 9 fatty acids.
Choose Carbohydrates Wisely
Low-sugar, high-fiber complex carbs are an important part of a healthy, active lifestyle. The starch-based complex carbs found in Muscle Milk supply energy to the body in the form of glucose. Glucose is the only energy source for red blood cells and a preferred energy source for anaerobically exercising muscles.

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.
