What You Should Know
MuscleON by NxLabs is a protein supplement aimed at bodybuilders. With terms like “blow your mind” and “engorge your muscles” dieters may soon realize the supplement is aimed at a small portion of the population; bodybuilders. Instead of promising to help a dieter lose weight, MuscleON claims to increase lean muscle mass by up to 12 pounds.

The Nano-Pro complex is all protein and that is what MuscleON claims will increase lean muscle mass. Instead of sticking with just one source of protein, MuscleON packs several together, making this supplement closer to natural protein than many others.
Syntha-SIZE contains amino acids and more amino acids. L-Leucine, L-Lysine, L-Glutamine and L-Tyrosine are found in most protein powders but there are other ingredients as well and make up 90% of the amino acid complex in MuscleON. These ingredients are not worth much because they only make up 10% of the MuscleON supplement.
MuscleON looks good on the label, but there are hidden problems with the supplement. Some of the complexes contain good ingredients but not enough to positively impact muscle growth. Take the OmegaBURN complex into consideration. The complex has 3,000 mg or 3 grams. If you look at the individual ingredients and the suggested doses of each, 3,000 mg is not enough to cover all the ingredients. Conjugated Linoleic Acid, for instance, is typically dosed at 3,000 mg for optimal use. If that musch CLA were included in MuscleON there would be no other ingredients in the OmegaBurn portion of the supplement.
MuscleON sells for $36.98 and can be found online from various retailers.

One thing a dieter does not want is a supplement that will increase weight. Protein is important to weight loss and weight gain, but MuscleON is specifically created to increase weight via lean muscle mass. Dieters would have more success choosing a supplement dedicated to weight loss.
