Advanced athletes have unique recovery needs in order to maximize performance and muscle growth. Meet Monster Milk. Monster Milk is an advanced, all-in-one lean muscle protein that delivers a comprehensive array of nutrients that help drive muscle protein synthesis.

Staged-Release Protein Blend
Monster Milk provides 50 grams of protein per serving. Its fast-acting proteins, including whey protein hydrolysate, isolate and concentrate digest within two hours of consumption, providing an immediate source of amino acids. Slower-digesting proteins from milk protein concentrate, milk protein isolate and caseinates digest over six hours, offering a prolonged release of amino acids. The result is a supplement that promotes nitrogen retention and whole-body protein synthesis.

The Power of Leucine
Leucine is one of the three branched-chain amino acids, and it has about a tenfold greater impact on protein synthesis than any other amino acid.

mTOR Pathway Activation
Leucine stimulates muscle protein synthesis by activating the anabolic mTOR pathway, which acts as an amino-acid sensor in all muscle cells. As levels of leucine rise in the bloodstream, mTOR is activated and protein synthesis can begin.

Leading 3:1:1 BCAA Ratio
Recent research shows that leucine-enriched beverages consumed with exercise activate and prolong activity of the mTOR-signaling pathway, which increases muscle growth. Monster Milk offers a 3:1:1 ratio of leucine to the other two BCAAs, isoleucine and valine.

PepForm Leucine Peptides
Every serving of Monster Milk incorporates 2.5 grams of PepForm leucine peptides, which are made from a proprietary process that binds free-form leucine to leucine peptides isolated from fresh sweet whey. This unique technology drastically improves the solubility of leucine and results in a leucine concentration that is 40 percent greater than in a standard gram of whey protein. Monster Milk is also fortified with 3 grams of free-form leucine.

Creatine Monohydrate
Creatine is a natural compound that’s synthesized in the body and is also found in many foods. Creatine is produced in the liver, pancreas and kidneys, and it regenerates muscles’ ultimate energy source, adenosine triphosphate. Creatine monohydrate is considered to be the best source of creatine because it contains more creatine per weight than any other source.
Each serving of Monster Milk provides 3 grams of Creapure creatine monohydrate, which is German manufactured and considered to be highest in purity and quality.

Betaine Anhydrous
To further enhance the powerful Monster Milk formula, 2 grams of betaine anhydrous is included per serving. Also known as trimethylglycine, or TMG, betaine is a vitamin that lowers homocysteine levels, is essential to the maintenance of intestinal function and cell production, and protects DNA and DNA formation. Additionally, betaine has been linked to improved strength, energy and power.

Glutamine
Monster Milk delivers 5 grams of added glutamine per serving to enhance muscle tissue repair after training sessions. Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body. It serves a broad range of critical roles, including immune function support, digestive tract health and protection of lean muscle mass. During times of stress (both physical and mental), increased demand for glutamine may outpace the body’s ability to produce it. This is why supplemental glutamine is beneficial for supporting the needs of hard-training athletes and fitness enthusiasts.
