A no nonsense energy drink! Just shake the can and bottoms up, no other preparations needed! Muscle Monster from Monster Energy of Monster Beverage Corporation gives you monstrous energy in one can!
The BEST RTD on the Market
Muscle Monster packs quiet a lot of energy in 16 ounce cans. Ready to drink supplements have gained ground after companies like Monster Beverage Corporation started producing affordable RTD yet highly nutritious products.
Each can contains two servings which you can divide for pre workout and post workout nutrition. If you're in need of a great pick me up drink, one can of Muscle Monster will energize you all throughout your workout.
Muscle Monster contains several nutrients to give you amazing energy. Each serving gives you about 90 calories of energy or almost 200 calories in one serving. Some bodybuilders and athletes on a cutting diet might want to pass this one however studies show that if you really want to burn fat, you need to burn fresh calories from your diet to get your body going.
Once you get your body going with a quick 200 calorie energy boost, Muscle Monster helps you unlock your glycogen and fat stores with a proven ingredient.
One serving contains about 81 milligrams of Caffeine, making one can approximately 160 milligrams. Caffeine has been studied extensively and has been proven to help the body break down fat. The calories you get from your own stores have double the benefit compared to drinking or eating food.
Glycogen and fat give you roughly 9 calories per gram compared to drinking sugary or carb laden drinks of 4 calories per gram.
You can't just eat fat and expect it to be burned as energy directly. The body actually passes fat first into the liver to be processed into glycogen or broken down into fat chains and stored in fat cells also known as adipose cells.
Finally, you're carving away the actual fat deposits in your body with the help of caffeine.
Clean, Smooth and Jitter free Energy with Muscle Monster
Muscle Monster will give you great energy with caffeine. Just to help you avoid caffeine overdose or Caffeinism, it is best that you reduce intake of other caffeine containing foods such as coffee, tea or chocolates. The right dose at the right time, such as before a workout, can help you harness the benefits of caffeine.
A word of caution; mixing Muscle Monster with other pre workout supplements may be tempting. However, if you do choose to mix, it would serve your body best to choose non stimulant pre-workout supplements like Jack3d Micro or HEMAVOL.
Amino Acid Profile
Muscle Monster isn't just an ordinary energy supplement. One can gives you about 25 grams of protein from skim milk or calcium caseinate.
The protein serving is there to provide you additional energy as each gram gives about 4 calories. However, its real role is to make sure that you don't burn your own muscle proteins by mistake. Studies have shown that taking protein before a workout spares your muscles during strenuous activity.
The Best Tasting RTD Yet
RTD was known to be chalky and taste like medicine. Monster Beverage Corporation wanted to break free from the mold and created Monster Energy Muscle Monster with your taste buds in mind! Muscle Monster is available in three different flavors:
Muscle Monster Vanilla
Muscle Monster Chocolate
- Muscle Monster Coffee
Texture is like skim milk which means it goes down smooth and silky. This silky texture means that the ingredients are distributed fairly well and will be easily digested for faster absorption than regular RTD brands.
Flavor wise, the chocolate drink is a big favorite among bodybuilders and athletes. It tastes almost like the real thing which can help you satisfy your sweet tooth and keep you on your diet.
You'll find retail prices of Muscle Monster at around $3 which is a pretty good price for a 16 ounce protein and energy shake. However, you'll find deals online if you buy in bulk which is great if you work out a lot. Just chill several cans for the week and you got a pre workout drink that you can just grab and down in one go.
