Is Muscle Milk Good For Building Muscle?
By Jean Lam

Milk is a great bodybuilder's drink. Milk is a slow digestible protein and contains vital nutrients for your body's growth and recovery. In addition, milk contains high levels of calcium which are beneficial for your bones and can prevent osteoroposis. Milk supplements contain high doses of quality protein and are an easy way to get your milk protein intake. Milk contains 80% casein and 20% whey and casein is the protein which is absorbed in your body slowly and is an ideal prior bedtime meal. During sleep, your body enters in a catabolic mode due to the fact that it won't have food for several hours and milk is a highly recommended drink before you go to sleep. Nowadays, you have good supplements made from milk like the Muscle Milk supplement from CytoSport. If you're asking yourself "is muscle milk good for building muscle?", this is what you need to know.

The benefits of Muscle Milk supplement are:

(1) High amounts of protein
(2) Different flavors for taste
(3) Helps promote lean muscle mass
(4) Fat burning efficiency
(5) Fast exercise recovery

Muscle Mik supplement contains a complex ratio of proteins, amino acids, peptides conceived to duplicate the astounding benefits of mother's milk resulting in rapid tissue development and repair. Muscle Milk is also great at energy production since it contains special fats that can be easily utilized to provide energy for your workouts, boost your fat metabolism and enhance protein synthesis and the retention of minerals in your body.

You can be creative with your Muscle Milk supplement eg you can put some in your skim milk or low fat milk and mix them together to finally put it in your oatmeal or you can just drink it alone just like a milk shake. If you are lactose intolerant, you can use soy milk instead. Another alternative is to create a protein shake with Muscle Milk and get a nice Muscle Milk drink. Just add water to your Muscle Milk supplement, add your favorite protein powder such as whey and put it in a blender.

You have 2 types of CytoSport Muscle Milk supplement:

(1) CytoSport Muscle Milk(Original Muscle Milk)

More calories. Contains more fat, more sodium and less protein. With two scoops(75 g serving), you can get 32 grams of protein.

(2) CytoSport Muscle Milk Light

Less calories(44% fewer than Original Muscle Milk). Contains less fat, less sodium and more protein. With two scoops(50 g serving), you can get 25 grams of protein. So with 75 g serving, this gives you 25/50 * 75 = 37.5 grams of protein.

But both Muscle Milk supplements offer same great taste.

CytoSport Muscle Milk supplements come in many flavors like banana creme, blueberries 'n creme, chocolate banana crunch, chocolate caramel pecan, chocolate caramel, chocolate malt, chocolate milk, chocolate mint chip, cinnamon bun, cookies & creme, creme brulee, dark chocolate, dulce de leche, horchata, mocha joe, orange creme, peach mango, peanut butter chocolate, pina colada, rocky road, root beer float, strawberry banana, strawberry milkshake and vanilla creme amongst others.
