What You Should Know
MyoFusion by Gaspari Nutrition is a protein powder that packs 25 grams of protein per scoop. In the protein shake market, 25 grams is a bit lower than normal, but the trade-off is a low-fat, low-carbohydrate, no-sugar blend that dissolves in liquid and tastes great. The fact that MyoFusion contains a ton of vitamins and minerals is just icing on the protein shake.

Each scoop of MyoFusion contains 147 calories and 25 grams of protein. The 25 grams of protein account for 100 healthy calories. The remaining calories come from the 3 grams of fat (27) and 5 grams of carbohydrates (20). MyoFusion is relatively low in fat and carbohydrates which makes this shake mix appropriate for use on a lower carbohydrate training diet. The long list of vitamins and minerals allow a dieter to use one scoop of the shake mix as a between meal snack that will decrease hunger and increase daily protein intake.
In terms of muscle building, MyoFusion does not have the impact of some protein shakes simply due to the low protein level and low carbohydrate level. Proteins use carbohydrates to move into muscles. Often, bodybuilders will take carbohydrate powders in addition to protein shakes for this purpose. Typical bodybuilding protein shakes tend to contain upwards of 50 grams of protein or more, but the calorie total is also higher for these shake mixes.
According to the directions for use, the bodybuilder can use between one and three scoops per shake. At the three scoop mark the shake would contain 75 mg of protein and 441 calories – that is more like typical weight lifting shake mixes.
MyoFusion sells for $40.99 for a five-pound canister and $19.98 for a two-pound canister. This price is far lower than comparable protein shake mixes.
- Healthy source of protein for bodybuilders and dieters.
- Low carbohydrates.
- Low sugar content.
- High vitamin content.

For the price, MyoFusion is an affordable protein shake option. Dieters can mix one scoop of MyoFusion with water and a bit of ice in a blender and create a healthy, filling snack with few calories. Protein has been proven to decrease hunger between meals and thus this shake could take care of two weight loss problems – sweet cravings and hunger.
