I have to say, before using any Muscle Pharm
product, I was very skeptical of their effectiveness and quality of their products. I would say this is the highest quality supplement they produce IMO of course. I was highly impressed with Combat
, and heres why.
First off the protein ingredients where very top notch. The protein blend consisted of fast to slow digesting protein
s such as, whey protein
isolate, Partially hydrolyzed whey protein
, Micellar Casein
(highest quality of casein,) Whey Protein
concentrate, and Egg Albumin. Another great feature to their blend is a digestive
enzyme blend which is, Protease and Lactase, to help fully digest the proteins for their maximum utilization. Also dont forget about the BCAA
blend; , L-Glutamine
, L-Leucine, L-Valine, L-Isoleucine; Alanine, Lysine, Arginine
, Glycine, Histidine, Tyrosine, Cystine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Proline, Serine, Aspartic Acid, Threonine, Tryptophan. With all that being said, what impresses me the most is their protein blend which is near perfect when it comes to digestive
Effectiveness: 9/10- I took one scoop in skim milk every night before I went to bed, and I noticed every time I woke up, it seemed my muscles were full as if I still had a gym pump. My strength increases were decent but still something, also I noticed I was less sore with Combat
then I was with glutalyn alone. So with strength increases, improved muscle fullness, and better recovery
, I would give the effectiveness a 9.
Taste: 6/10- This is were the downside came with Combat
, the taste. I purchased chocolate milk twice (dont know why. The taste had me thinking I was drinking chocolate milk that was warm and preserved in a cardboard box, it literally tasted like cardboard chocolate. Even with milk and some pb it really didnt change the taste. Also the mixing was a little tuff, it would clump even with water, and it was very thick to put down. But in all fairness, it was tolerable, but not enjoyable. I give the taste a 6.
Value: 8/10- Another great pro to Combat
was its price. I purchased mine at bb.com for $39.00 for 52 servings. IMO that is a very good deal and fairly affordable. For such a high quality protein blend for a reasonable price, I give the value an 8.
Overall: 8/10- After everything being said, IMO its a great product. Yes, the taste isnt good but again it is tolerable. But what makes Combat
a good product is its protein blend along with its price for serving. All in all I would recommend this to anyone whos looking for a high quality protein blend with a nice value, but that doesnt mind the taste. So, I would give the overall an 8. I will definitely try more Muscle Pharm
products within the future.
