What You Should Know
Scivation is a strong company with quite a few popular bodybuilding supplements. We are not thrilled with the presentation of some supplements, but Scivation does a good job with Solution 5. This is a meal replacement supplement, designed to be taken twice a day, particularly after working out. The formula does not contain simple carbohydrates like some protein shakes and antioxidants are added to support muscle health. We love the fact that digestive enzymes are available to help break down protein faster.
With 183 calories per serving, the dieter can use the formula as a meal replacement shake, but it is important to take a multivitamin every day. It is probably best for the dieter to replace only one meal per day with this formula due to the lack of vitamin profile.
List of Ingredients

There are three main components of Scivation Solution 5. The protein blend include several sources of protein, including whey and pea protein. Oat fiber is also added to the protein blend. One serving of Scivation Solution 5 supplies 21 grams of protein. Not a huge amount, but more than some protein shakes.
The PolyOrphac Blend supplies antioxidants. During intense exercise free radicals develop faster and may attack muscle. These ingredients help protect the muscle from oxidant attack.
The final blend is comprised of digestive enzymes. If the body cannot break down protein fast enough, it goes unused. These enzymes support faster processing of protein so the muscle gets all the fuel it needs to grow.

We like the Scivation Solution 5 meal replacement formula. We would like to have seen a complete vitamin profile, but if the bodybuilder takes a multivitamin every day, vitamin intake should not be a problem. Solution 5 is designed to be taken twice a day, but one canister contains only 30 servings. This supplement could get expensive quick.
