Because whey digests so fast, it quickly boosts muscle protein synthesis MPS. However, it only boosts MPS for a short amount of time. Research now shows that when you add medium-digesting and slow-digesting proteins to whey, muscle protein synthesis remains elevated for longer than when using whey alone.
Since muscle protein synthesis leads to muscle growth, elevating muscle protein synthesis for longer can have a significant impact on your overall gains. In fact, research confirms that people who add slow-digesting casein protein to a whey protein shake around their workouts enjoy greater muscle growth over time than people taking whey alone. This research is the very reason I recommend taking a blend of fast-digesting whey protein, medium-digesting egg protein and slow-digesting micellar casein.
Say No to Protein Spiking! Many supplement manufacturers cut corners on their protein powders because high-quality protein is very expensive to make.
The current method used to assess the amount of protein in a protein powder involves measuring the nitrogen content, which is then converted into protein amount. Nitrogen is used because protein is made of amino acids strung together in a chain, much like a pearl necklace, and every amino acid contains nitrogen. If manufacturers add loose amino acids to a powder, they can fool the test and deliver less pure protein than their labels claim.
Many people think that extra amino acids in their protein powder are beneficial. The major problem, however, is that certain amino acids are not added to make the protein powder more effective.
Most single amino acids, such as taurine and glycine, are much cheaper than whey protein, casein protein, milk protein or egg protein. Even highly beneficial amino acids like BCAAs and glutamine are cheaper than protein powder. So, by adding a bunch of cheaper amino acids to their protein powders, supplement companies can boost their nitrogen content, which technically means they boost the amount of protein per serving, at least according to the nitrogen test.
Because the added amino acids are not complete proteins, the protein content of a spiked protein powder is not truly what a nitrogen test claims it is. For example, a whey protein powder may claim to contain 20 grams of protein per scoop. However, if the manufacturer added 5 grams of glycine per serving, then you are only getting 15 grams of actual whey protein and 5 grams of glycine, which would read as 20 grams of protein per serving.
Taurine is once such amino acid. Taurine helps with energy production, so you might first be excited to see a high quantity of it in your protein. However, if 5 grams of taurine has been added to your protein powder that claims to contain 20 grams of protein per serving, you are only getting 15 grams of real protein and 5 grams of taurine. So the extra taurine comes at the expense of total protein.
Yes, your protein contains these performance nutrients, but you may be getting them at the expense of the protein, not in addition to the protein. All those ingredients are nitrogen-containing compounds that count towards the total protein amount listed on the label. I have lost about 46 lbs, toned up and I eat very good still. This is the best protein shake I have ever tried and I have tried them all. I have lost 25 lbs in less than 4 months.
I have more energy than ever. I recommend this shake and I am never hungry always I am satisfied. I drink two shakes a day have two two healthy snacks and healthy meal a day. It has changed my life. I think they taste great, work well, and produce results. I find I have more energy and I find that I am not snacking as much between meals.
I currently drink 18 shake, and have for almost a year now. It has helped me with cravings, I have more energy, and feel better overall. I have not had any digestive issues. I have had my labs checked since drinking 18 shake and they actually got better. As for the taste, chocolate is the only one I can drink without having to add something to it. However, I have never found a shake mix that I could drink straight.
I always add something banana, peanut butter, extract, etc just to give it a little extra flavor. I am overall pleased with 18 shake and will continue to drink it. My wife and I have been drinking 18shake every day for over 3 years and not once have had a negative reaction from it! We both Love the taste and our health is Excellent since starting it! No more cravings for sweets or junk food, or cholesterol is way done, blood pressure excellent and body fat reduced significantly.
We both Highly recommend this shake to our family members and friends! When making the shakes it is better, to blend your ice first then mix the rest together, this is not something that is on the label but something your associate should have helped you with. Finally, faithfully the past 6 weeks. Best way to make the shakes is using a bullet blender, and some ice and water. Figure out what works for you, but I highly recommend this product.
What lese do you eat or drink with drinking these shakes? And what are the flavours? How many do you drink a day? Just finished their 30 day challenge — which focuses on making hormonally balanced meals. The premade chocolate shake is delicious but not intended as a meal.
When making them as a meal I use almond milk, almond butter all unsweetened , cold pressed greens, Arbonne fiber, and dark berries-yummy and totally curbs hunger!
Well dang, I can do this. You can order it from their official website http: Is this a powder? Do you mix it with milk or water? Is a diet plan included with this product? Can you please give me a day of breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks and what do you drink during the day if other than water and how much water daily. Also what is the price of everything. I need to loose lbs. To whom it may concern; I am looking to see where I can obtain a location in Lethbridge, Alberta Canada to receive information and purchase on 18 shake product.
Would this product even be able to purchase in Canada? Thank you for information in this regard Arlene lammertsen. This is the only shake I can tolerate! It taste amazing and keeps me full , I have not tried any recipes I keep it simple and mix mine with water , and still taste great!! I ordered the chocolate and a week later ordered the vanilla!

I have just purchased 18 shake have about 2 weeks before i get to start it. Im a good 30 lbs over my comfort zone, i am I am hoping to lose the 30 before June. That would put me at 3lbs a week. Not sure if that is possible. Im going to try 18 shake just to change it up. My weaknesses are weekends and cooking, i love to cook. I purchased the 5 bags of vanilla i figure that is about 40 days worth. Im not sure, is thats accurate? I want to buy this shake but I want to know how many time a day we have to drink it?
Can we still eat any food? Or just this drink? And one package is for howmany shakes? Plz let me know thanks. Would you suggest drinking this for dinner? Just curious since people have said it gives them energy.. I have been searching and searching for a good and reliable meal replacement shake. I have tried others; with no real results. I did WW a year ago and lost 25 lbs of which i have gained back.
My weight seems to be climbing. It must be these hormones changes. Nevertheless, i am so dissatisfied with my current weight. I have no energy. Just want to make sure this product will help me with my weight.
My current weight is My desire weight loss goal is Any advise toward helping me reach my goal will be most appreciated. Menopause got me too! I have gained about 25 pounds! I need to know if it worked for you. I decided to give the one in on 1 year and at first I lost nearly 30 inches overall but then hit a plateau and then gained it all back!
I felt like I was having a shake from a diner! I mix mine with almond milk unsweetened and one banana and I loved it! I will come back to post if I achieve my weight loss goal which is 20 pounds! After trying a number of weight-loss therapies, I came across this product about 6 weeks ago and decided to give it a try.
Hi I live in the U. Could you please tell me how much this is in English money and how long it takes to arrive please. I tried Isagenix shakes but they had way too much sugar in them for me. My blood sugar was going up and down and I started craving more food. I got weak and ill every time. I would also like to know how this compares to Isagenix. I am currently on it and it makes me feel great but I find myself hungry a bunch.
Could someone give me an example of some tasty ideas for meal replacement recipes? Wanting to try this because it sounds incredibly promising! I see there are recipes that come along with this Shake, but can you just drink it with water or milk, how would you normally prepare it for on the go if you have no time to whip up a shake?
I slightly cheated and have been doing 4 shakes a day, every 4 hours. In 2 weeks I lost 17lbs so far. I drank black coffee and water. When doing the bulk order can both flavors be ordered or do all 5 pouches have to be one flavor? I emailed them and requested 3 choc and 2 vanilla and they responded and came that way.
My wife also requested that but they have not responded and she has yet to receive. They may have been delivered as we have been out of town. I got my order in today and they, in fact, did honor my request. I am from Melbourne Australia. I have tried quite a few meal replacement and loose weight diets but no one seems to work for the long run!!!
I am 63yo and weight 98kg, for my 1,73 cm toll is too much. I want to loose 20kg by Christmas, is that possible? I think that 18 shake works different for everyone with experimenting healthy food and a good workout plan. Thank you 18 shake. Work in a operating room. Want to try this product but afraid of the fiber.
Will this product cause me to run back and forth to the restroom. Just want to know if it would attack my intestines aggressively or gently. I have just ordered 10 packets of 18Shake and am looking forward to using it. I am 50 with diabetes and my weight is out of control. Leave this field empty.
