People who actively demand more from their muscles require a greater supply of protein. It is the nutrient that has been demonstrated to be the most vital in building and maintaining lean muscle. Protein is availed in different forms – whey, casein, glutamine, BCAAs – by different supplement companies. But there are those who combine all these forms into one superior blend, such as MusclePharm.
Combat Powder is the company’s answer to the increased protein demands of athletes. Formulated to offer the best blend to meet the multifaceted protein needs of the body, the supplement is hailed as superior to the many others in its class.
Combat Powder contains among other ingredients fast-absorbing whey isolate, slow-digesting micellar casein, egg albumen which has a very high bioavailability, and added BCAAs and glutamine. This comprehensive profile gives the product an edge over the competition because it assembles all the ingredients needed to maximize muscle growth.
Combat powder comes in 2, 4 and 10lb tubs. The cheapest goes for a little over $30 and gives about 25 servings. It is not the cheapest protein powder in the market, but it is not unaffordable either. As it makes any other standalone protein supplement such as casein, whey protein and BCAA redundant, saving you money in the process, it is safe to say that it offers you great value.
Taste and Mixability
The product is available in a large palette of flavors including the popular Chocolate Milk. With such a great variety, it would be hard not to find something that goes down well with you. Suffice it to say that Combat Powder is very tasty.
For a protein supplement, Combat Powder mixes incredibly well. In plain water, it dissolves without a fuss and does not even require that vigorous a shake. This might give the impression that the product is thinly constituted, but this is far from true given the ingredients used.
Combat Powder is supposed to aid in muscle growth as each scoop contains an ample 25g of protein. This amount increases when skim milk is used in mixing it. If you observe an intense training program, you should notice some gains after a few weeks. This is the result of the fast and slow releasing proteins that ensure there is a sustained supply for as many as 8 hours. It prevents catabolism so every gain you make won’t be lost.
Combat Powder is a really rich offering from the brand. If you need a whey/casein blend that also gives you loads of BCAAs and is easy on the stomach, this product will not disappoint.
