BUILDING ATHLETES FROM THE INSIDE OUT™

NATURE'S ULTIMATE LEAN MUSCLE PROTEIN
  • 32g Lean Protein
  • Lactose FREE
  • 20 Vitamins & Minerals

When MUSCLE MILK® was first introduced, we 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 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.

Since we founded CytoSport™ in 1998, we've been dedicated to working with sports scientists, coaches and trainers to redefine protein enhanced products for active lifestyles and serious athletes - supporting performance when it matters.
Over the years, we've expanded to create a comprehensive line that encompasses the athletic experience from preparation, to hydration, to recovery. Our products are among the very few that are subjected to third party independent testing to ensure they are manufactured in compliance with NSF International's GMP for Sport™ Registration. Our facilities are also inspected and regulated by the FDA. We carefully manufacture our powder products and ready-to-drink pre-blends onsite at our corporate campus in Benicia, California. Making responsible and efficacious products for athletes and active lifestyle individuals requires responsibility on all fronts. As our business has grown, so has our footprint. We have made environmental sustainability a focus and driver in everyday decision making.
Through it all, CytoSport has been committed to one thing, building athletes from the inside out.

Supplement Facts

Take MUSCLE MILK anytime you would take in a shake or gainer, but want a better tasting, more anabolic formula. Mix two scoops in 10-12 oz. water. Want even more satisfaction? Mix withlow-fat milk. Tastes like a real milkshake. Honest!

BEFORE & DURING WORKOUTS
For a truly awesome weight workout, take CYTOMAX™ and MUSCLE MILK together during the workout. Flooding the body with growth nutrients, plus the patented acid buffers of CYTOMAX, gives new meaning to “burning down the house.”

AFTER WORKOUTS
After workouts, the body is in a catabolicstate. MUSCLE MILK helps reverse this muscle breakdown by "tricking" the body into muscle synthesis when you normally break down muscle.

PRIOR TO BEDTIME
Sleep is actually a catabolic period. Remember, breakfast means to "break your fast" of the night. During any fast, you break down precious muscle tissue for energy. MUSCLE MILK will help you wake up more anabolic.The following supplement facts are the daily values when product is mixed with water. Please see product label for values when mixing with milk.

Pumping Up? How to Pick Your Protein Supplement

Pumping Up? How to Pick Your Protein Supplement
Pumping Up? How to Pick Your Protein Supplement
: Main Image
Our protein supplement guide will help you excel on the court, in the gym, or on the road
If you take your workouts seriously, nutrition should be top of mind too. Protein is a great place to start, and focusing on getting the right types of protein, in the right amounts, and at the right times is key. Our protein supplement guide will help you meet your wellness goals, potentially improving your performance on the court, in the gym, or on the road.

What type?

Whey

Whey protein is quick to digest and provides all of the protein building blocks - the amino acids. Our bodies cannot make some amino acids, and whey is ideal for meeting essential amino acid needs. Whey also supplies branched-chain amino acids (BCAA), and some research supports that they aid muscle recovery after hard workouts.

Casein

Compared with whey, casein is slower to digest, and results in a lower, yet more prolonged rise in blood amino acid levels, which may provide a particular advantage for body builders. At least one study supports that casein outshines whey in terms of promoting strength and lean body mass gains in people following a structured weight-training plan.

Rice

Rice protein is less likely to create allergic reactions than other proteins, and it comes from a plant, making it appropriate for vegetarians. Another potential advantage is that rice protein contains a high proportion of arginine, an amino acid that can dilate blood vessels, possibly enhancing blood flow to muscles. Rice is not a "complete" protein however; it doesn't supply all of the essential amino acids. Some products combine rice protein with proteins from sources like soy or milk to make it complete.

Egg

Egg protein is ideal for people who are looking to build new muscle. It has a very high protein efficiency ratio (PER), which is one measure of how well our bodies can use any particular form of protein. The higher the PER, the more efficiently our bodies can use that protein when we eat it. Egg is off the charts in terms of PER. Egg protein also is a complete protein, and is a good source of essential and branched chain amino acids. Egg protein powder is made from egg whites, and comes in a convenient, pasteurized powder form.

Soy

Soy protein is a high-quality plant protein that provides all essential amino acids, making it a good option for vegetarians. For the body to best utilize soy protein, vegetarians should also eat grain or dairy within a few days. Soy protein comes in two basic forms: soy protein isolate and soy protein concentrate. Soy protein isolate is the most highly purified form, and has a minimum protein content of 90%. Soy protein concentrate contains more carbohydrates, and has a protein content of approximately 70%. Concentrates tend to cost a little less, but if you find soy protein concentrate doesn't agree with you, try isolate, which is easier for some people to digest.

How much?

With protein, as with many nutrients, more is not always better. According to Dr. Doug Paddon-Jones, Associate Professor at the University of Texas Medical Branch and Director of Exercise Studies, "30 grams of protein appears to stimulate maximum muscle synthesis. For athletes, each meal and snack is a chance to hit the 30 gram mark, giving your body several opportunities each day to maximize muscle growth and repair."

Another reason to spread protein evenly through the day is simple efficiency. "Given that your body won't use much beyond 30 grams of protein at a time, it doesn't make sense to load up with more than this," says Paddon-Jones.

When?

  • Breakfast-To support muscle building first thing in the morning, try trading traditional carb-heavy breakfast foods for more protein-rich options, such as a powder protein supplement mixed with milk and cereal.
  • If you're heading into a long strength-training session-Sipping a casein-based protein supplement prior to and during your workout will give muscles sustained access to amino acids. If taken in the evening, casein can provide a steady supply of amino acids while you're sleeping.
  • Immediately pre- or post-workout-Especially if your workout includes aerobic or circuit training, protein manufacturers recommend a whey protein-based liquid or powder supplement.

          Comments about CYTO SPORT CytoSport™ Muscle Milk® - Strawberry Banana:

          I've enjoyed muscle milk when I'm not looking to mix up a full protein shake. Saves time and delicious. Typically I'll use it when I'm on the way out the door quickly or as a way to tide me over between meals and when I'm looking to add a bit more protein to my day.

          I also use it before and after a bike ride.

          1 star removed because depending on the mixing it'll end up a bit grainy at times in my blender bottle - but nothing too extreme.

          Comments about CYTO SPORT CytoSport™ Muscle Milk® - Strawberry Banana:

          I love the taste and I take it after my 2nd set and feel energy for the last 2. It is really effective but because it calls for 2 scoops per serving and I use a shaker bottle...I shake for 30 seconds to 1 minute and it is still small clumps in it. I use water as compared to milk as I am lactose intolerant. Besides that and if you use it like I do a large container will last 3 weeks to a month if you really use level scoops so it can be pricey. But I also sometimes make a shake on my non-workout days like when I need something light to hold me over while I work outside or in the garage.

              My recommendation, get another taste except this combination.

              Muscle Milk is one of the Best! I have tried many Protiens over the years and not many even come close. The Taste is excellent, the performance is great, and its great for anyone. It doesn't matter your age or your goals, with Muscle Milk you can achieve great results! I have introduced Muscle Milk to people from Ohio to Mexico and everyone has asked me "Where can I get it"?
              Even if you have the late night "Munchies", Throw some Skim Milk and Ice in a Blender, Mix and when the Ice is Blended fine throw in 1-2 Scoups of Muscle Milk and you have an EXCELLENT Milk Shake!!
              I'm not kidding! Everyone from my Mom, Girlfriend, co-workers have asked to try my Muscle Milk and now they all drink it with Great results. Even if you want to take Vitimans but don't like to swollow the pills, just check out the Label and you will be suprised of all of the vitimans thats in there. Best of all it tastes Great!! So... Give it a try, you have nothing to lose but BODY FAT!
