ABB Steel Bars
ABB STEEL BAR (CHOCOLATE CRISP)
Whey protein, the highest quality and best form of protein, is incredible stuff. It provides the body with the necessary building blocks to produce amino acids that are used for building muscle tissue. Whoa! Nearly every bodybuilder knows the importance of protein supplementation. Studies have been conducted that compare whey protein to other sources. They have found that whey protein contains the perfect combination of overall amino acid makeup... and in just the right concentrations for optimal performance in the body. Both hormonal and cellular responses seem to be greatly enhanced with supplementation of whey protein, too! Not to mention the benefits whey protein has on the body's immune system according to documented scientific research. Whey protein also plays a role as an antioxidant and an immune system builder. Most importantly, consistent whey protein intake coupled with exercise will result in consistent muscle building.
It's my understanding that isolate is arguably the highest quality protein. However, ABB Steel Bars contain both. Also, it's important to note that ABB Steel Bars contain a blend of proteins: Calcium Caseinate, Soy Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Isolate and Whey Protein Concentrate. I listed these as they appear on the ingredient label. Therefore, the greatest concentration of protein in ABB Steel Bars is Calcium Caseinate and lower amounts of each protein as the list continues.
Soy protein provides a healthy way to get non-animal protein into your diet. It is great tasting, natural and can have a plethora of healthy effects on the body. It is ideal for high protein/low carb diets! Its valuable constituents include saponins, phytosterols, and isoflavones. This is one of the best things about soy protein! Saponins enhance the immune system's function. The anabolic isoflavones in soy (genistein and daidzein), has exhibited effects as powerful antioxidants. Needless to say, soy is a must for women and has great positives for men too!
Not so long ago, Soy Protein was shunned as an estrogen inducing protein. More recently, that claim has been falsified. Now, Soy Protein appears to be a healthy addition for men and women.
A Multiple Array of Vitamins
For the human body to perform at its maximum potential, it must be fed a vast and complex array of vital nutrients. Becoming deficient in just one of these essential vitamins or minerals breaks down the metabolic pathway that produces optimum efficiency and performance declines. Not good! Daily consumption of a high-potency multivitamin/multimineral steel bar may help ensure the presence of essential cofactors necessary for thousands of metabolic reactions.
I wouldn't depend on these bars in place of meals to achieve your daily vitamin and mineral needs. However, they can be included as a quick addition on the go.
In regards to the claim, I was happy to see that ABB Steel Bars stayed on point and didn't embellish the truth too greatly, like so many supplement companies do. Therefore, for the claim, I award ABB Steel Bars a 9/10.
I sampled the Chocolate Crisp flavour of ABB Steel Bars. I found that it has a satisfying chocolaty taste that was not overwhelming. However, there was a slight aftertaste upon finishing bar. Therefore, for taste, I award ABB Steel Bars Chocolate Crisp an 8/10.
I was pleased with ABB Steel Bars texture. The texture of the bar was a relatively soft texture. Also, it had a slight crunch and was somewhat chewy. Therefore, for texture, I award ABB Steel Bars an 8/10.
ABB Steel Bars has a fair claim. The bars taste good and the texture is easily likable in comparison to other protein bars I've sampled (many different bars). There is one aspect of ABB Steel Bars that I wasn't thrilled with. That is, ABB Steel Bars contain a large degree of refined sugar (23-24 grams). Now, this sugar is actually beneficial immediately pre or post-workout. However, it's not ideal for individuals seeking to lower carbohydrate intake via these bars. That being said, overall I was, for the most part, pleased with this bar. Therefore, for an overall review, I award ABB Steel Bars Chocolate Crisp an 8.3/10.
