Met-Rx 100% Ultramyosyn Whey Review by Matt Canning
I went to my first Mr. Olympia contest and expo this past September of 2007. I had previously went to the Arnold Classic in February of 2007 and enjoyed it immensely and figured I would check out the Mr. Olympia contest and was lucky to have company this time around as two of my friends expressed an interest and tagged along with me. The trip was half business and half entertainment for me as I knew I could use the expo as a chance for networking yet could also have a fun time checking out the various exhibitions available as well as the Mr. Olympia contest itself.
I have tried many different protein powders at this point and the friendly people at the Met-RX booth including Peter Putnam (Nationals competitor and sponsored bodybuilder) gave me a free five pound tub of chocolate flavoured Met-Rx 100% Ultramyosyn Whey. It looked like a high quality protein powder judging solely based on the appearance. Although they say not to judge a book by its cover, the reality is that often a good product appearance and marketing campaign will go hand in hand with good research and development and a high quality product. Each 30 gram scoop of 100% Ultramyosyn Whey contains 120 calories, of which 20 calories are from fat (only two grams of fat) with three grams of carbohydrates and a big 22 grams of protein which is quite ideal for a post workout shake. In addition, the blend contains various amino acids and calcium in every scoop.
My choice for drinking the chocolate protein was to mix it in a blender with one banana and with milk. I generally choose skim milk, although I am not opposed to using any type of milk, I just happen to opt for skim since it is highest in protein and lowest in fat. I have also mixed the protein powder in with creatine by Betancourt Nutrition which was also provided to me free for review by the Betancourt Nutrition booth by Jorge Betancourt himself. I found that the chocolate did not go well with the fruit flavoured creatine and if you wish to mix a fruit flavoured creatine or glutamine with this brand of protein powder, I would recommend that you purchase the strawberry flavour as it only makes sense to mix them that way.
No complaints here! I liked the taste of this low fat protein powder blend and it went down easy leaving no bad after taste. I think that you will feel the same way as it is flavourful with no grainy or off taste to it.
I mixed the protein powder in a blender with a banana and skim milk and sometimes used a creatine powder too. It mixed very well and created a thick shake which tasted good and did not have much in the way of an inconsistent feel to it. I think you will find the same thing. I didn't mix it in a cup with water or milk so I can only go based on my experiences with the shakes made in a blender, but it definitely did mix well in that way.
Never in my life have I had a problem with digesting any type of protein powder and I have never had problems drinking milk either and the same can be applied to the MET-RX blend here. It went down easy and I enjoyed it. The only supplement I ever had a problem with was Super Pump 250 by Gaspari Nutrition - very effective stuff, but I can understand why some people call it "Super Dump" lol.
As with all of my protein powder reviews, it is difficult for me to assess the effectiveness of a protein powder since it is a food supplement. It is the same calories but simply in a more convenient form. I like the nutritional breakdown of this product and it suits my nutritional needs perfectly and does so in a way which makes my life easy as I don't always have the time to fry steak multiple times in a day! That said, this protein passes my standards when it comes to quality.
This is a great supplement by a great company and my experience at the expo was that they truly do care about their customer base. The protein comes in five flavours:
Cookies N' Cream
Peanut Butter Cup
I tried the chocolate but I would be happy to try samples of all the other flavours too. I quite liked the chocolate and I'm sure that MET-RX's standards apply across the board to all the flavours they produce. The protein costs $38.99 for a five pound tub, so I suppose it all comes down to budget. Cheaper blends are available, but in 2007, the cost of whey has gone up and that has effected essentially every whey protein product available on the market. All in all, this is a good product for a decent price and I definitely give it my approval.
