Cytosport is a world renowned company developing and distributing supplements based on needs of athletes, weightlifters and sportsmen. The company’s R&D is based in USA as well as manufacturing and Cytosport sponsors sports events in various State Universities. Most of its supplements are easily available in my locality so I have used them many times.
In this post, I am going to review the whey protein concentrate from Cytosport – Complete whey. You can get a 5lbs tub for $45 to $50 if you are in USA. I‘ve used strawberry banana and cookies and crème flavors and I wish to use the cocoa bean as well. I am going to talk about its quality, taste, mixability and will give it scores in the end, so keep reading.
Cytosport Complete whey is a decent product and is having great profile. I bought this whey protein because it has maximum number of servings than other proteins and quality of whey comparable to Optimum Nutrition and other elite brands like Dymatize. Therefore, I consider this as a great option when you are hard on budget.
I would start with the taste of the protein powder. There’s an awesome aroma from powders of both the flavors strawberry banana and cookies and crème. I usually took this whey in water after the workout sessions and the taste is not good at all in my opinion. It tastes fine in the beginning but leaves a bad chemical like taste when you just have ingested down. Same thing happens when taken in milk. I have used many proteins before this and I didn’t like the taste of Cytosport Complete whey.
It mixes well and instantly without any formation of lumps in milk as well as in water. That’s an advantage if you have bought a tub of this protein powder.
I felt some issues with digestibility as well. Though they have added some digestive enzymes but I felt bloating and that was even more as compared to when I used the monster mass gainer. I took papain and bromelain enzyme supplementation along with this whey to avoid flatulence. So, I am not happy with digestibility. It can be due to artificial sweeteners or flavoring that gives out chemical like taste in my mouth.
If you look at the ingredient profile you can read 84 servings per container, there were 113 servings per tub in the previous packing. The new labels read 20 grams of protein per serving whereas there was 18 grams of protein in the older variant. But you can get about 1700 grams of first class protein with BV of 103 that works great to maintain and build anabolic environment in the body after such an intense workouts.
Okay, the most important part about any supplement is its effectiveness. I will say it works good enough to provide essential macronutrients after workouts and at other times of day as well. It helps in recovery and I felt good as I was using Cytosport Complete whey to recover worked up muscles. I gained around 2 pounds of lean mass while I used the product.
Will I buy it again? Not sure about it.
