Quick Summary

A nice protein powder good for workouts and recovery but pricey.

Introduction

Thank you to the people at Steelfit for letting me review your protein. I am always looking for protein powders that are new to me. Protein powder is my go to supplement post workout and I believe this is a good product so this was an easy choice.

Ingredient Profile

1 scoop

Calories 150
Calories from fat 20
Fat 2 g
Saturated fat 1 g
Carbs 6 g
Sugar 1 g
Protein 28 g
Potassium 300 mg

This is a 100% whey protein concentrate. It is a good protein powder with the amount of protein and has normal calorie, carbs and sugar. I give it a normal ranking.

Taste/Mixability/Dosing

I was able to get the chocolate milkshake. I found it better when mixed with almond milk the day before instead of mixing it immediately after a workout. For me, the taste was better that way and more like a shake. The mixability was not a problem. One scoop would be 28 grams of protein but I would do 1.5 to get me around the 40-45 mark. I would mix 1.5 after a workout. Overall, the taste, mixability and dosing was good. I give this a good ranking.

Effectiveness

I felt this was an effective protein but nothing that was a huge difference between the other normal protein powders. When it comes to things like increasing definition, increasing strength, and promoting muscle growth, you will not see these results as fast as 26 servings. It takes time to get "fast and great" results. If you continue on with a good diet, a nice workout, and time, you can get those benefits. What I did find was, it promotes rapid recovery and had the extended release protein for me to get through a day and a place to start the next morning. It does promote no gas, bloat, and upset stomach which it did deliver on as I had no issues with this. The effectiveness was nice, so I give it a good rating.

Value

The Steel Whey was available on the company website and is on sale for $40 and it lists for normally $70. It has 26 servings so it works out to $1.54 per serving. The Steel Whey is a little expensive and not my normal price as most of my protein powders are around $1.00 per serving. I give this a middle to low ranking due to the slightly higher cost. It's not that it is a bad product. It is just a little high for me.

Side Effects

None

Conclusion

This is a good protein. I like the ingredients. The taste was wonderful. The mixability and dosing was nice. It was effective. Price is high for me. I had no side effects. This is a great product and one I would use if I had extra money.

Quick Summary

Steel Whey is a great option and newcomer to the protein market that is well worth a try, especially for its quality and efficacy among protein supplements.

Introduction

A special thanks to SteelFit for their continued participation here on SR.com. Today I discuss my experiences with their protein product Steel Whey. Protein supplements are one of the most frequently used supplements in every fitness buff's regimen. Protein is needed for a host needs within the body, but many of us are most concerned with its ability to support the growth of new muscle tissue. There are more protein supplements on today's market than one can count and I've used my fair share of them all.

Lets see how Steel Whey stand up.

Ingredient Profile

Each scoop provides 150 Calories, 2g Fat, 5g Carbs, 1g of sugar, and 27g Protein.

As one can see, an immediate advantage to Steel Whey is that it does not add any unnecessary fats, carbs, or sugars to your daily intake.

The 27g of protein is derived from the source of WPC-80 whey concentrate. This form is the highest quality and complete source of whey concentrate one can have.

There is also a source of abundant amino acids, both essential and non-essential. For the sake of time and clarity, I copy and pasted the info directly from SteelFit's website.

Alanine (NAA): Not to be confused with the beta alanine, alanine is a nonessential amino acid that plays a critical role in glucose production and blood sugar regulation. Alanine also supports optimal functioning of the immune system as well as kidney stone prevention.*

Arginine (CAA): The most well-known function of arginine is to serve as the substrate for the production of nitric oxide, a powerful vasodilator that enhances blood flow and pumps during training and supports cardiovascular function. Arginine also plays a role in the healthy functioning of the pituitary gland and works with two other amino acids in L-Ornithine and phenylalanine.

Aspartic Acid (NAA): Aspartic acid serves a key role in the Krebs Cycle (TCA cycle) that provides energy to the body through its production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). This nonessential amino acid is also needed for the production of immunoglobulins, antibodies, and DNA. In case you weren't aware, immunoglobulins and antibodies are responsible for recognizing, binding, and eventually destroying harmful viruses and bacteria that invade the body.*

Cystine (CAA): Synthesized in the liver from the essential amino acid methionine, cysteine fulfills several important functions in the body. First and foremost, cysteine is needed for the production of glutathione, one of the most powerful antioxidants in the body. This amino acid also helps slow down the aging process, and some research indicates it may be helpful in preventing dementia and multiple sclerosis.*

Glutamic Acid (CAA): Glutamic acid belongs to the same family of amino acids as L-Glutamine, the most abundant amino acid in the body. Glutamic acid plays a key role in immune function and digestion as well as serving as an important excitatory neurotransmitter in the brain.*

Glycine (NAA): Glycine is the smallest and simplest of the 20+ amino acids found in the human body and the second most abundant found in human proteins and enzymes. Formed in the liver from serine and threonine, glycine plays an important role in the central nervous system and the digestive system and is needed for the production of many important acids including nucleic acid, bile acids, and creatine phosphate.*

Histidine (CAA): Histidine is an aromatic amino acid used to synthesize proteins and affects numerous metabolic reactions in the body. It also regulates the pH value of the blood and helps form the myelin sheath, a protective coating that surrounds all nerve cells and protects them from damage.*

Isoleucine (EAA): The "weaker" and younger brother of leucine, Isoleucine stimulates muscle protein synthesis in the body, though not quite as powerfully as leucine does. However, where isoleucine does stand out is its role in enhancing glucose uptake by skeletal muscle as well as glucose utilization during intense exercise.*

Leucine (EAA): The "king" of amino acids, leucine is most well known for being the most powerful stimulator of the mTOR pathway in the body, which drives muscle protein synthesis.

Lysine (EAA): Lysine is needed for the production of antibodies, and has been found to be beneficial for protecting against the herpes virus. Additionally, lysine is also needed for the production of carnitine - a substance that helps the body use fat for energy. This essential amino acid also aids calcium absorption and is needed for protein synthesis.*

Methionine (EAA): Methionine is vital to the production of L-Cysteine, an incredibly potent antioxidant that combats oxidative stress induced by intense training. This essential amino acid also aids the liver with the digestion of fats and serves as a "building block" for the production of carnitine, adrenaline, choline, and melatonin.*

Phenylalanine (EAA): A precursor to tyrosine, phenylalanine is important in the synthesis of the important neurotransmitters. Due to this amino acid's role in neurotransmission, phenylalanine has been investigated as a possible treatment for depression and several other illnesses including multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and ADD.*

Proline (CAA): Manufactured in the liver from ornithine, glutamine, and glutamate, proline is a secondary amino acid that is one of the primary amino acids used to generate collagen, the fundamental protein of skin, bones, ligaments, and tendons. This amino acid also fortifies the artery walls and protects the endothelium layer, highlighting its importance in maintaining cardiovascular health.*

Serine (NAA): Formed from glycine, serine plays a central role in the proper functioning of the central nervous system and production of antibodies. It is also required for the production of phospholipids used in cell production. To top it off, this amino acid also serves a role in the function of DNA and RNA, fat metabolism, and muscle formation.*

Threonine (EAA): A precursor to glycine and serine, threonine is essential for protein synthesis, and it also supports proper functioning of the central nervous, immune, digestive, and skeletal muscle systems of the body. Threonine is needed to produce antibodies, which bolster the immune system, and the mucus gel layer that covers the digestive tract.*

Tryptophan (EAA): Tryptophan plays a critical crucial role in lifting mood, as the uses this amino acid to generate serotonin, one of the "happy hormones". Another important function of this essential amino acid is that it supports the synthesis of niacin, an essential B vitamin involved in energy production.

Tyrosine (CAA): Tyrosine is an incredibly important amino acid affecting mood, motivation, and reward. Moreover, tyrosine also plays a role in regulating pain sensitivity, stress, and appetite.*

Valine (EAA): The final component of the trio of BCAAs, valine is the least studied of the lot. As one of the BCAAs, valine helps drive muscle protein synthesis and is essential for glycogen synthesis in muscle tissue as well as energy conversion. On top of that, valine also has a supporting role in the proper cognitive function and immune system function.*

Overall, a solid and complete looking protein supplement.

Taste/Mixability/Dosing

The flavors available are chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry milkshake. I requested and received strawberry milkshake and found it to be delicious in every way. I have mixed it in water, milk, almond milk, and as part of homemade shake preparations with other ingredients. All were delicious, but I would say that for the standalone liquids, regular milk is the winner. As a part of my shake concoctions, it resulted in a delicious preparation, complimented by any fruits, nuts, or oats I included in the shake.

It mixed thoroughly without problems in any liquids.

I stuck to only using one serving a day since I wanted it to last as long as possible. Most often on training days, I would take it as part of a morning shake preparation or standalone with some milk. On non-training days, I would take a serving as part of a shake preparation sometime in the afternoon.

Effectiveness

Both me and others would say that gauging the effectiveness of a protein can be difficult. However, as I've also said in previous protein product reviews, my score on protein supplements is based on how it helped support anabolism through recovery and dietary complement of macros.

Steel Whey helped improve my recovery by keeping my DOMS, soreness, and slight lethargy from previous intense lifting sessions to a bare minimum. I had more natural energy throughout the days, leading all through each consecutive training session.

With an efficient profile, Steel Whey was able to help ensure proper macro intake without adding unnecessary unwanted sugars, fats, or bad carbs all while keeping my protein intake up.

Value

Steel Whey is not widely available and only through SteelFit's website can you purchase it for 39.95. Each tub comes with 26 servings making each serving about 1.50. It may seem expensive, but I think it is worth the price given the quality and effectiveness among other protein products. As always, try to catch on sale.

Side Effects

Conclusion

SteelFit has presented a highly effective and superb quality with Steel Whey. It taste great and provides the highest quality of whey protein concentrate to help you keep those anabolic engines firing. As I always say, keep your diet and training in check and be on the lookout for sales.

Quick Summary

One 9f the best tasting proteins that comes at a slightly high price per serving ratio.

Introduction

I would like to thank steel fit for giving me the opportunity to try this product. I dont really have a main protein I stick to because I'm always trying different brands and flavors.

Ingredient Profile

1 serving:
150 Calories
2g Fat
5g Carbs
27g Protein

The protein is a whey concentrate which is slower digesting compared to isolate. It has more calories and carbs typically and is thicker. They use wpc 80 which is the highest quality whey concentrate you can get.

The following is copy and pasted from the steel fit website about the amino acids.

Alanine (NAA): Not to be confused with the beta alanine, alanine is a nonessential amino acid that plays a critical role in glucose production and blood sugar regulation. Alanine also supports optimal functioning of the immune system as well as kidney stone prevention.*

I think this is a really great profile. I like that they added in more protein than other ones I have tried. Normally protein is 25 or less but this one has 27. I personally prefer whey concentrate over isolate because I think it tastes better and I like my protein a little thick.

Taste/Mixability/Dosing

I got the vanilla milkshake and it was one of the best vanilla I've had. It tasted exactly like a vanilla milkshake to me.

The mixability was great. Just a few shakes and I was done. No clumping or settling to the bottom

I would take 2 scoops post workout or sometimes 1 scoop in the morning and another post workout with 8 ounces of milk.

Effectiveness

I think it is hard to say how effective a protein is so I will just say things that I have noticed and think is important. I did not have any digestive problems at all. It didn't make me go to the bathroom or feel bloated. It did feel me up like a mini snack. If I took it a between meals I wasnt hungry and could go on with my day without thinking of food. I personally did not get any gains on this and my doms remained the same.

Value

The only place I could find this is at the steelfit website for $39.95 which is $1.50 a serving. I normally buy proteins for less than a dollar a serving so that is kind of a high price for me. I would probably buy it if it was cheaper.

Side Effects

None

Conclusion

I would recommend this to someone looking for a great tasting whey protein concentrate and has a little extra money to spend. Everything about this protein is great except the price.

Introduction

First off I want to thank Steelfit for letting us troopers have the chance to give this product a try. I was able to try their pre-workout and amino product and really liked both of them a lot. After using them I was really hoping at some point they would come out with their own protein since that was not a product they had yet. Then I happened to hear they were coming out with their own protein and was pretty excited. I was really hoping once it was released it would show up on the trooper list and it did. I was able to claim this right and really looked forward to giving this a try.

Ingredient Profile

This is made from Micro-Filtered WPC-80 Whey Protein Concentrate. They use no prop blends, no fillers, and no amino spiking. Steel Whey's high biological value and amino acid profile boosts protein synthesis, supports lean muscle growth, accelerates metabolism and enhances recovery. I do like that they go a little higher on the protein with 28g in the chocolate. Also you get 150 calories, 2g of fat, 6g carbs. I think this is real good if your trying to get in your macro count. I did notice the dosage on a couple of the ingredients did vary a little but it was very minimal. This helps Boosts Protein Synthesis, Builds Lean Muscle, Accelerates Metabolism, Enhances Recovery. This also has a pretty big amino acid profile in this and here is a breakdown they had posted on their website saying what each amino does.
Alanine (NAA): Not to be confused with the beta alanine, alanine is a nonessential amino acid that plays a critical role in glucose production and blood sugar regulation. Alanine also supports optimal functioning of the immune system as well as kidney stone prevention.*

Taste/Mixability/Dosing

I had the chocolate milkshake flavor. I thought this tasted pretty good. This had that nice rich creamy chocolate flavor to it. You won't get any kind of weird after taste when you finish drinking it. It did have the coco powder type smell to it.

The powder in this was real fine like and mixed really well with water. Had no left over clumps or anything that stuck to the bottom of my shaker bottle. I would use one scoop post workout. Since this is regular whey post workout is the best time to use this since it's a faster digestion type protein but could be used pretty anytime you needed it.

Effectiveness

I think over all this did a fairly decent job at helping me on my recovery. For the most part I seemed to feel pretty good the next day or two after using this. I know my DOM's seem to be better and were not as noticeable. I know on days when I would work legs I did not seem to be as sore the next couple of days. I even changed up my leg workout a little and upped my reps a bit and did a couple more sets than I normally do and still did not feel much more in the way of soreness. So I do think this did helped my body to feel better and not feel as sore the next day. I think this helped me to maintain more than anything. I mean you will get some decent recovery but don't expect this to go above and beyond at helping you with gains.

There are some manufacture's claims in this that says this is suppose to help accelerate metabolism and enhances recovery. Not real sure on this part and if it really helped that much more like they claim this is suppose to do. I do think it helped me some but nothing that was really noticeable to know it was helping that much more. I do think this helped me gain a little more in my muscle mass. I did feel better overall so I could maintain more on my lifts and not go backwards. I was noticing that after awhile my muscles did start to look a little more full like so I do think it was helping me to build a little more. Depending on the type of person and lifter you are I feel this can really help you if your trying to get your macros in for that day.

Overall I thought this was really good on my stomach and never caused me any unwanted gut issues or unwanted bathroom trips. I thought this digested really well into my system. I also noticed I had very little bloating from this and any gas I had was very minimal. After I would take this I did feel a bit more full like which was nice if knew it would be awhile before my next meal.

Value

Right now steelfit website is the only place I could find right now. They want $39.95 for 26 servings. I do think this is a little high for this size protein. This comes out too $1.53 per servings. This is not real bad but not real great either.

Side Effects

Nothing I noticed.

Conclusion

I think overall they have a fairly decent protein product with this. This is not the best protein product I have used but certainly not the worse. I would say this is more middle of the line for protein products. It will help you with your recovery but nothing that really wowed me in terms of effectiveness. I think this does help you maintain more so you don't loose any gains but don't expect a lot more than that. I will say if your trying to meet your macro count this will work great for that. I would like to see some other sites start carrying this besides just their website and maybe that would help get the price down a bit. I would say that if you get the chance go for it and give it a try. Again I want to give a big shout out to Steelfit for making this product and letting me have the chance to give this product a try.

The macronutrients on this product are very good to me. It's a high protein profile (I consider anything over 25g per serving on the higher scale for protein powders) with a low carb/fat content. it's really easy to fit this into anyone's macros whether they are bulking or cutting. Now this powder is a pure whey concentrate and the manufacturer claims it to boost metabolism and enhance recovery. I've never had a protein that could do either of those last two things even though increased metabolic activity would be hard to judge.

Taste/Mixability/Dosing

Taste: Vanilla milkshake was enjoyable. An above average vanilla flavor that I thought tasted better with less water ( or add more water if you want the flavor more diluted).

Mixibilty: straight forward, no problems to report

Dosage: 1-2 scoops post workout, depending on my food intake that day, was enough in my opinion to start the rebuilding process immediately.

Effectiveness

Digestion: This was like most proteins powders that I have used meaning that I didn't have any stomach or GI issues while using this product. I also did not have any issues with bloating.

Did I make gains? As hard as it is to tell if a protein supplement is aiding muscle growth, I think that the 27 grams of protein that I was ale to take immediately post workout impacted my body's protein synthesis reactions in positive way. By that I mean it did just as much as 25 grams of protein from any other protein source would just in a more convenient to carry fashion. Meeting your overall daily protein/macro-nutritional needs is the most important part of muscle growth and can put a supplement in a better position to succeed.

Manufacture's claims? I personally did not see any metabolic changes or improved recovery while using this product. my DOMs remained the same and I woke up feeling the same whether I used the product the day before or not. I'm not sure what I'd be looking for exactly in terms of an increase in my metabolism but nothing noticeable changed to me.

Value

I could only find this for a few cents under $40 on the manufacturer's website. It wasn't available anywhere else online and comes out to almost $1.53 per serving. There are cheaper options out there, but it's not crazy expensive either.

Side Effects

None

Conclusion

This is a solid middle of the road protein powder if you're on the market for one.
