Description
BUILDING ATHLETES FROM THE INSIDE OUT™

NATURE'S ULTIMATE LEAN MUSCLE PROTEIN
  • 25g Lean Protein
  • Lactose FREE
  • 20 Vitamins & Minerals

CytoSport has been overwhelmed by the amazing success of Muscle Milk®. If there has been one repeated request, it’s “Make Muscle Milk with less fat and fewer calories, but keep the SAME GREAT MUSCLE MILK TASTE!” Well…we heard you.

INTRODUCING MUSCLE MILK® LIGHT Same great performance – same great taste 50% less fat and 33% fewer calories than genuine muscle milk. MUSCLE MILK LIGHT is scientifically designed for individuals who want to maximize lean muscle gains while reducing caloric intake.

PRECISION PROTEIN BLEND MUSCLE MILK LIGHT 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 LIGHT 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 LIGHT 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.

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.

        I have tried several different types of protein powders. I purchased 24packs of muscle milk light chocolate from [...] and i was impressed by the good quality and taste. So I decided to get one in a bottle. I also have other protein powders but this product is so expensive.So, i won't just buy this product due to the price. However, i love the banana creme flavor. I would purchase it again.

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

            I have to say that I usually love banana flavored products, so I decided to try the banana creme as my first purchase of muscle milk light. I had tried a sample of the vanilla before and found it to be very good and it does the job well. I am trying to choke down the banana. It tastes just horrible. In order to get it down, I have to chug it. I'm sure if you mix it with another flavor, it wouldn't be as bad. And I do love Muscle Milk Light and will continue to use the product... just in a different flavor!

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

              This is the first protein powder I've tried that I haven't gagged on, never mind actually enjoyed! It was a promising sign when I opened up the canister and it smelled like banana cream pie, and I wasn't disappointed. I also tried the chocolate peanut butter - not as good as the banana, but they are great together, with a little bit of coffee added.
              It mixes well without leaving a gritty feel like all the other protein mixes I've tried. A shaker or portable mixer is enough to do the job, so you can easily bring it with you to work, the gym, hiking, etc.
              The combination of low calories, low sugar, high protein, and lots of vitamins and minerals makes it ideal for just about anyone, including diabetics.
              I use this for both breakfast and post-workout. Bodybuilders and heavy duty athletes might want to stick to regular muscle milk, with 50 grams of protein instead of 25, but the light version will suffice for most people and is ideal if you are trying to trim down rather than bulk up.
