Not bad at all...Except the price...ugh
Big thanks to Ryno Power Sports Supplements for providing me the opportunity to try their entire line of products. As Blade described in his review, the supplements in this line are geared towards endurance/extreme sports athletes, not so much for weight/powerlifters. So taking that into consideration, today I will be reviewing their protein.
Pretty solid profile with a bunch of extra goodies thrown in there. The protein consists of a large variety of sources: micro filtered and ion-exchange whey isolate and concentrate, whey peptides, milk protein isolate, micellar casein, calcium caseinate, and egg white protein isolate.
The extras include things such as: taurine, coenzyme q10, d-ribose, quercitin, curcumin, phosphatidylserine, etc, etc...
As Bladeski so eloquently put it in his review, Ryno took the kitchen sink approach and considering this is in a massive prop blend, most likely 'pixie dusted' a lot of the additional goodies.
Additionally, it was really nice to see no dyes or crazy unecessary chemical fillers. Stevia and cocoa are used as the sweetner and flavoring, which to me is a very nice touch and a departure from the normal assault of artificial sweetners.
There is a minor discrepancy about the amino profile, as RynoSports did not include the amount of grams the amino profile was extrapolated from. Not a big deal, but it would be nice to know.
However, I cant knock the approach as it seemed to prove pretty effective for me. All in all, a solid profile.
Not going to say much here, as we all know ranking proteins' effectiveness is pretty subjective to say the least. What I can say is that it performed well with zero digestion issues. Obviously nothing tangible in the muscle building or recovery department, but seemed right on par with other similar blends. Overall I was happy with it.
I had the swiss chocolate flavor, it was decent. Nothing to write home about, but not bad by any means. They pretty much used cocoa and stevia for flavoring and all things considered, it turned out pretty good. Mixability was good for a blend of this type.
2scoops = 34g protein
24 servings a tub, about $50 a tub
Roughly comes out to a bit over $2 a serving...
Ouch! Thats just too much for what it is.
Overall this is a good protein but for a very steep price. I would recommend it if money is no object, but if you are on a tight budget there are several similar products for a better value.

- Too Expensive
