CytoSport Muscle Milk is one of the cheapest and most popular protein powders available. It contains both whey concentrate and whey isolate as part of its ingredients, meaning you are getting some of the highest quality type of whey protein in every serving.
CytoSport Muscle Milk as is the case with many of the cheaper brands of whey protein powder, has a high caloric content, due to the amount of sugar they put in the product. However for those going through a “bulk” cycle, having a slightly higher calorie protein powder may be a great thing to put on weight and muscle. For regular users, using it less as a fitness supplement, there may be better alternatives available.
Due to the higher caloric content of CytoSport Muscle Milk, it tastes absolutely fantastic. It has a slightly higher fat and sugar content than both
Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Protein Powder and BSN Syntha 6 Protein Powder. Also a recent consumer report found 4 toxic metals present in CytoSport Muscle Milk, including Cadmium, Lead and even Arsenic.
Overall after having tested CytoSport Muscle Milk for several weeks, despite its excellent taste, the high carbohydrate load, and potential low quality ingrediants have made me wary of it as a product. As such i cannot recommend it to any readers of this site, and would direct them instead to one of the other higher reviewed protein powders or bars as a nutritional supplement. However if taste is entirely what matters to you, then Muscle Milk is one of the best i have reviewed.
