What You Should Know
Myo Lean by Myogenix is a protein shake you won’t have to force down, according to the product description. Nearly every fitness and bodybuilding company offers a line of supplements to improve muscle gain and decrease recovery time between workouts. Myo Lean is just another in that long line. The ingredient list reads like 1000 other protein shakes with whey proteins, vitamins, flavor and artificial sweetener.
List of Ingredients
Myo Lean Protein Complex (Microfiltered Whey Protein Isolates, Whey Protein Concentrate, Whey Hydrolysates), Glycogenix (Carbohydrates), Various Fruit Extract, Natural Flavors, Vitamin and Mineral Blend (Magnesium Oxide, Calcium Phosphate, Ascorbic Acid, Vitamin E Acetate, Beta-Carotene, Vitamin A Palmitate, Zinc Oxide, Manganese Sulfate, Copper Sulfate, D-Calcium Pantothenate, Niacin, Chromium Chloride, Pyridoxine HCL, Riboflavin, Thiamine HCL, Vitamin D, Cyanocobalamin, Folic Acid, Biotin, Potassium Iodide, Vitamin K, Sodium Selenite, Sodium Molybdate, Xanthan Gum, Glutamine Peptides, Essential Fatty Acids, Leucine, Isoleucine, Valine, Sucralose.
The three main aspects of Myo Lean are protein, carbohydrates and vitamins. There are 20 grams of protein per scoop with one serving being two scoops (40 grams protein). In addition to that huge protein dose is quite the dose of carbohydrate sugars. The label of Myo Lean claims the sugar carbohydrates are from low glycemic fruits but that does not change the fact that each serving contains 16 grams of sugar. The vitamin mineral blend rounds out this shake making it a viable meal replacement or pre-workout shake.
There are a few problems with Myo Lean. One serving has 295 calories which is higher than many dieters want to spend on a protein shake, unless that shake makes up the entire meal. The sodium content is a bit higher at 11% of the recommended daily intake. There is also quite a bit of saturated fats and cholesterol.
Myo Lean claims their protein shake (advanced meal replacement) will help to reduce body fat. There are no ingredients in this supplement that will increase metabolism or burn fat. Protein may help stave off hunger for a bit, but that is all this supplement has to offer a dieter. The protein level, as a matter of fact, could be higher than some dieters need in a single meal.
Myo Lean sells for $37.95 through the official website. The canister is 2.5-pounds and holds just 15 servings. That brings the total for the month to $75.
- High protein content.
- Vitamin and mineral blend.
- Myo Lean has saturated fats.
- 13% of cholesterol RDA per serving.
- Nearly 300 calories per serving.
- No fat burners despite claiming to burn fat.
Myo Lean is a good source of protein but not the best out there, by far. With saturated fat and cholesterol, this protein shake could negatively impact health in ways no bodybuilder or dieter would probably think of. Natural supplements created from herbs are saturated fat free and have no cholesterol. Other protein shakes can also claim the same.
