Uses: Pre-workout, post-workout, meal replacement or as a protein-rich snack
We’ve developed a unique mix of complete multi-source proteins. These include calcium sodium caseinate, milk protein isolate, whey protein isolate, whey protein concentrate, L-glutamine, whey protein hydrolysate, lactoferrin and taurine, which provide amino acids - the building blocks of muscle tissue. Translation? High quality protein to help you recover from exercise and build muscle.
The Lean Lipids in Muscle Milk Light come from sunflower oil, medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), and canola oil. Long-chain polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids from sunflower and canola oils provide essential fatty acids. The body can use MCTs for muscle energy. What does this mean? MCTs are less likely to be stored as fat than typical fats. (See nutrition facts panel for total and saturated fat content.)
6 - 7 GRAMS OF CARBOHYDRATES (DEPENDING ON FLAVOR)
Our carbohydrate blend contains a mix of complex carbohydrates and fructose. Complex carbohydrates are composed of long chains of energy supplying glucose and fructose can be used by the body to make glycogen, the body’s quickly available energy bank. What are we trying to say? Muscle Milk Light contains a mix of carbohydrates with unique functions.
Q: WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO DRINK MUSCLE MILK? A: Muscle Milk should be consumed as directed on the label. Muscle Milk can be consumed before workouts, after workouts, first thing in the morning or prior to bedtime. In addition, Muscle Milk can be used as a meal replacement when you are on the go or as a high protein snack during the day. But, keep in mind that individual nutritional requirements vary depending on gender, body weight, level of activity and exercise/training intensity and duration. So, it is best to use Muscle Milk as part of a well-balanced diet that includes whole foods and other protein sources. We do not recommend Muscle Milk be used as your sole source of nutrition.
Q: WHO CAN DRINK MUSCLE MILK? A: The short answer is Muscle Milk can be used by almost anyone that is not allergic to dairy proteins. Plenty of athletes drink Muscle Milk because they may have increased protein requirements, but it is fine for anyone that wants to supplement their protein intake. The proteins in Muscle Milk may be especially helpful when you are:
starting a new exercise program and trying to build muscle
increasing the intensity of your work-outs
a vegetarian (that consumes dairy) and does not get enough protein from dietary sources

"I'm just going to jump straight to the point, along with your regular workouts, I strongly recommend this product." - Daris McInnis
"I've been reading quite a few reviews on Muscle Milk just to get a feel if others shared my experiences with it. What I find is just about half the reviews talk about nothing more than how great it tastes. That would be fine if the product were a very expensive milkshake, but it's a muscle enhancing product and there are little details in these reviews about whether or not it worked for them. So let me share. Yes, it did give me results." - Douglas G. Lally
