Muscle Milk: Risks, Uses and How to Take Muscle Milk

Muscle milk is a brand of protein-based food supplements, which has become one of the largest brands in the world in this sector of sports nutrition.

The market segment in which it is selling muscle milk is in the bodybuilding sector (hence its name), specifically in the sector of high-protein post-workout meals.

This brand may not sound too familiar to you if you are Spanish, the reason is that in Spain it cannot be found as easily as other brands, but even so, you can get a little of this wonderful product.

In other countries, such as English-speaking countries, the sale of this food product is the order of the day. The reason is that it is a product that has very good quality and that comes in different types of packaging.

That if, this product is nothing like any standard food product that you can find. Muscle Milk is a product intended for use by athletes, specifically weightlifters and bodybuilders, since its high protein content favors the correct development of muscle mass.

In a normal person who does not practice sports, it cannot be used so lightly, since certain notions of use must be taken, which must be taken into account when consuming products of this type.

Today we are going to explain these recommendations and the possible risks of taking muscle milk, since there is a lot of contradictory information on the internet on the subject of gym proteins. Thanks to the information that I am going to offer you, you will be able to take this supplement with total guarantee and safety, since for us your health comes first.

Instructions for Risks, Uses and taking Muscle Milk

Whey protein powder:
The first type of muscle milk product and the most famous and most used product of this brand are whey protein powders or also known as whey proteins. These proteins have been derived from whey, which is the whey left over when making cheese. Formerly this serum was discarded, until someone discovered its great properties for bodybuilding. These proteins can contain up to 80% protein per 100 grams of product, a higher concentration than any other product. Muscle milk has three types of protein powders, all of which are different from each other in a few little ways.

    1. Whey concentrate: Whey concentrate is whey almost as it comes from the cheese factory, it has only been processed to transform it into powder and the flavor has been added afterwards. This whey has a large amount of protein, but it also contains traces of milk, such as lactose or saturated fat, which is why it is the one with the most calories and the cheapest.
    2. Isolate: Known as ISO, whey isolate is similar to concentrate, only that whey has had all the crap removed, leaving you with just what we’re interested in, which is pure whey protein. Thanks to this, we can reach 90% protein in some cases, being a very high quality protein and suitable for people who are lactose intolerant. It is somewhat more expensive than the concentrate because the isolation process has to be paid for.
    3. Hydrolyzed: Hydrolyzed is the most expensive serum that exists but also the best. It actually has the same amount of protein as whey isolate; however it has been hydrolyzed to make the protein easier to digest, so we found a protein that gets to the muscles quickly, taking full advantage of the anabolic window.
    4. Ready-made whey proteins:
      As it is somewhat inconvenient to buy protein powder and have to make the shakes ourselves, muscle milk has launched a line of ready-made whey protein shakes. This is very good for people who do not have a lot of time to prepare anything, since it is to open the shake, drink it and start feeling how the proteins reach the muscle. We have proteins in a lot of flavors, with a taste similar to conventional shakes and with a high percentage of protein, about 25 grams per shake. The way to take it is identical to that of protein powders; only here we are going to do it directly, without obviously having to mix anything.
    5. Uses:
      Now we are going to talk a little about the use of muscle milk whey proteins, since as I said before, they are a product intended for weightlifters, it is not a product of habitual consumption such as shakes of chocolate for young children (although later we will explain that with control they can be taken without risk). The first use that we are going to explain is the use of these proteins in bodybuilding and the second that we are going to explain is the use of proteins in the standard diet.
    6. Bodybuilding:
      The first use of these proteins is in the world of bodybuilding, in which they are taken to increase muscle recovery. As you may already know, muscle builds during rest. in which micro tears produced during weight lifting are repaired. For a time after exercise, which lasts 45 minutes, the body is open to pick up nutrients to regenerate muscle (anabolic window). Whey proteins are taken right after training, so that they are absorbed quickly and reach the muscle mass. In this way, we are going to achieve a little more gain than if we did not take them, since these proteins will go directly to repair the damaged muscle that is, they will not go to other processes in which they would go if the proteins were not absorbed fast
    7. Food and diets:
      Now we are going to talk about what food and diets are, in which of course we can use whey proteins, but with control. The use that we can give this product in diets is to take it as a meal replacement shake. This shake is better than real replacement shakes as it contains fewer calories, less sugar and more protein. Of course, you should not abuse these shakes, since we are going to explain their risks below.
    8. Risks:
      A saying goes that nothing is risk-free in this life, not even good things. Something like this happens with muscle milk, since proteins are a macronutrient that cannot be overused, since it is very difficult to digest. By taking a lot of protein, we are overloading internal organs such as the liver, kidney and heart, since it has to work very hard to digest them. Of course, this only happens when you abuse the quantity, that is, if you take more than two grams of protein for each kilo of weight. When you drink less, the body will be able to digest it perfectly, so if you drink a shake a day and do not follow a high-protein diet, you will not have any problem in this regard.
