    Quick Summary

    Currently much better option then traditional ON product

    Introduction

    Myprotein Impact Whey Isolate has always been in my wish list, because of it's positive reputation and feedback. After trying multiple whey powders with additional enzymes and vitamins, I decided to try purest whey isolate and don't pay any extra fee. Myprotein is very famous and widespread brand, just like ON you can find their products wherever you go and they offer lot's of discounts almost every month.

    Introduction

    Myprotein Impact Whey Isolate has always been in my wish list, because of it's positive reputation and feedback. After trying multiple whey powders with additional enzymes and vitamins, I decided to try purest whey isolate and don't pay any extra fee. Myprotein is very famous and widespread brand, just like ON you can find their products wherever you go and they offer lot's of discounts almost every month.

    Ingredient Profile

    Calories 90
    Calories from Fat 0
    Cholesterol 0 mg
    Sodium 50 mg
    Total Carbohydrate 1 g
    Dietary Fiber
    Sugars 1 g
    Protein 22 g
    Vitamin A
    Vitamin C
    Calcium
    Iron

    All this nutrients and vitamins are quite simple and basic for protein powder, making it easier to digest and fill up your diet, whether you drink it immediately after workout or first thing in the morning. Such amount of calories is very suitable for any diet while cutting and even tough it does contain some sugar and artificial sweeteners, they definitely are not enough to hold you back or hinder fat burning. In addition to this, it's very effective for cooking muffins or other desserts with whey powder, significantly reducing calories.
    Same thing applies to dietary fiber, I've already consumed fiber powder and can not expect any other significant benefits only from this powder, in my opinion not worth to mention on label. On the other hand, fiber can cause some bloating and digestive issues and lack of such things which make this powder purest of all competitors.

    Taste/Mixability/Dosing

    I purchased chocolate smooth & Strawberry Cream flavors. As a big lover of chocolate I feel very happy every time I drink it, but can't say same thing about strawberry, it tastes like an strawberry Ice Cream, not bad but it's my least favorite dessert. Both flavors mixed very well with water and I've always consumed 1.5-2 scoops after workouts (nearly 40 grams of Protein).

    Effectiveness

    As a lactose sensitive, I always consume whey powders carefully (starting at low doses at first) and always take strong digestive enzymes pills with it in gym. I have never experienced any digestive issues with this powder, no bloating or excess gas.
    I mostly drink it after late night workouts, it's digested quickly and I feel very well recovered on next morning. My muscles defined much more and started to grow significantly. Last two months I consumed them after kickboxing classes, which included heavy resistance and cardio sessions and Impact Whey Isolate helped me to maintain my muscles and burn some extra fat.

    Value

    Myprotein is very widespread brand, thus lot's of discounts are available worldwide. I personally always recommend to purchase it from www.muscleandstrenght.com, whereas I bought two bags (40 Servings each) whey for $40 ($0.5 per serving) and exactly on the second day 100 servings price also fell on $40... such funny things happen very often, wish I've waited for two more days. One thing I love about this product is that it's brought into packet and since I purchase them via international transportation companies, it makes package a bit lighter and significantly cheaper.

    Side Effects

    None of them, no bloating and not a single digestion issue

    Conclusion

    Myprotein Impact Whey Isolate is my new favorite protein powder. I've been consuming only BCAAs post workout but decided to substitute them with protein powder, thus after several weeks of consumption my muscles started to grow and define again even though I didn't lift weights actively and mostly attended heavy kickboxing classes, I felt very well recovered after workouts and never experienced any digestive issues. It was very good addition to my supplements and whenever I finish my another protein jar, I'll purchase it once more undoubtedly.

    23-25 Grams of protein is standard for most powders, as well as these amounts of BCAA and Glutamine, but Protolyte has added extra Leucine for better synthesis of protein. Common electrolytes that are measured by doctors with blood testing include Calcium, Chloride, Magnesium, Phosphorous, Potassium , Sodium and as you can see above, Protolyte includes significant amount of them, making it for our body to stay hydrated, normalize function of our cells and our organs.
    Amino Acids profile looks like so amazing! If everything listed completely meets it's description, then you don't need to pay extra cash for amino acids powders as well!
    One thing for what I could't find any additional information is Enzymes Blend, what do they mean and what they really are seems very interesting.

    Taste/Mixability/Dosing

    I got Vanilla Cake Batter, which tastes like a vanilla ice cream (definitely not my favorite taste). Whenever I applied water for the first time it never mixed completely and also made much larger foam than any other powders, making it impossible to shake. But after taking it to gym and letting to rest for one hour, shake well once again and only then it mixed completely without foams.

    Effectiveness

    I consumed ProtoLyte immediately after my late night workouts and as a first thing in the morning, exercised three or four times per week and before workouts consumed only 5 grams of BCAA, nothing else during the day. I felt very well recovered next morning and full of energy. I was still on cutting stage this month, thus checked my weight regularly, last three weeks I went down from 86 KG to 84 KG, but my muscles continued to grow and my arms muscles became much more defined. what's most important, I gave up weight lifting this month and started kickboxing classes and soccer only. Earlier, when I didn't consume protein alongside kickboxing, my muscles started to shrink and disappear after 2 months of training, but with whey powder they keep growing and fat continued to burn.

    Value

    I'm happy to receive ProtoLyte for free, but it's very interesting to compare him with others: on Amazon.com it currently costs $37.99 ( $1.52 per serving), while their official website www.vmisports.com offers it with $49.99 ( nearly two dollars per serving!). Average price of WPI ranges from $0.5 to $1 per serving and only protein powders with additional nutrients cost so expensive, like RSP TrueFit for example $1.50 per scoop, but it doesn't cotnain any Electrolytes and amino acids.

    Side Effects

    Didn't experienced anything unusual, didn't drink additional digestive enzymes with this product (as I do with other Protein powders since I'm lactose sensitive) and everything was just fine.

    Conclusion

    Facts and numbers say everything, ProtoLyte has 42 reviews including mine and all of them are positive! So if you have some digestive issues and think of purchasing protein powder with additional enzymes, ProtoLyte is currently best option on market and if you don't mind to pay some extra dollars,then go ahead! One thing I'm dubious about this product is it's Amino Acids profile, if it's true, then it definitely totally fits it's value!

    Introduction

    After reading dozens of articles about essential nutrients for fat burning, fiber-rich foods became irreplaceable part of my diet. Even if you eat lots of broccoli, apples, cereals and sweet potatoes, such supplements will always have bigger impact on your body. Fiber has number of health benefits, such as keeping your blood glucose levels from rising too fast, increasing satiety, boosting bowel movement, helping body to absorb other nutrients and lowering cholesterol levels. There are two types fiber: Soluble (soluble in water) and insoluble (does not absorb or dissolve in water), both are important for health, digestion, and preventing diseases.

    Ingredient Profile

    6 FIBER SOURCES:
    Polydextrose
    Digestion-resistant Maltodextrin
    Inulin
    Guar gum
    Psyllium seed husk
    Gum arabic

    Proportions not specified...
    Polydextrose is a synthetic polymer of glucose, frequently used to increase the dietary fiber content of food, to replace sugar, reduce calories and fat content. Digestion-resistant maltodextrin is also most commonly derived from corn and wheat (as well as rice and potatoes),created by putting maltodextrin through an additional process that changes the bonds which connect the sugar units. It is indigestible because our bodies do not have the enzymes necessary to break down the new bonds. Inulin is a type of soluble fiber found in many plants, your gut bacteria convert inulin and other prebiotics into short-chain fatty acids, which nourish colon cells and provide various other health benefits. Guar gum is a fiber from the seed of the guar plant. Guar gum is used as a laxative for treating constipation, inn foods and beverages, guar gum is used as a thickening, stabilizing, suspending, and binding agent. Psyllium is a soluble fiber derived from the seeds of Plantago ovata, an herb mainly grown in India. It increases the bulk in your stool, an effect that helps to cause movement of the intestines. It also works by increasing the amount of water in the stool, making the stool softer and easier to pass. Psyllium, one type of bulk-forming laxative, has also been used along with a proper diet to treat high cholesterol. Gum arabic, also known as acacia gum contains water-soluble dietary fibers (WSDF) that are not only good fiber for your diet but also helpful in keeping your cholesterol under control. One study showed that taking 15 grams of acacia gum in liquid form every day helped manage the concentration of plasma cholesterols in blood.

    Taste/Mixability/Dosing

    The only disadvantage of this powder is it's mixability. Doesn't matter you try to mix it in water, juice or soda drinks, you have to drink fast until sediments move in water... Otherwise you'll have to stir again. Neither teaspoon Nor hand mixer can deal with that. Eating with foods like oatmeal, soups and yogurt are easier options.
    Recommended dosage at the beginning to adopt is one teaspoon per day, any time of the day and for my body it's completely enough. Doesn't have any taste and it's easy to swallow even in ordinary water.

    Effectiveness

    One thing I can obviously say, this powder killed my appetite after the very first use! I received this package at night, rushed to post office and mixed with juice as soon as I got home. From next morning I feel I have no appetite and no craves! I eat foods that are healthiest and doesn't even think of chocolate or any sweet beverage! Strange thing for man who has to work mentally and study all day long, studies confirm chocolate and nuts are essential for such lifestyle... I've already finished nearly half of the jar and I'm preparing to purchase second one very soon.
    Also I can guarantee it won't have any side effects for your bowel and digestive system, as I'm currently under medication and restricted to consume many products, but ON Fitness Fiber never causes gas or bloating, which are very common with fiber rich foods.

    Value

    I purchased 6.87 Ounce jar for $7.93 ($1.15 / Ounce) on Amazon. Most of online shops claim that jar contains 30 servings, but it's not necessarily true, because it comes without scoop and you have to use your own teaspoon, thus one serving varies and can serve some more or less amounts. Currently cheapest online shop to purchase it is illpumpyouup.com for $6.95 ($1.02/ Ounce), other options vary from $7.5 to $11.

    Side Effects

    None of them.

    Conclusion

    This fiber powder makes me dubious about quality and truthfulness of ON products, because of it's "Mixes Easily" label on sticker... Anyway I recommend it for increasing satiety and suppressing appetite, but it definitely doesn't follow that label and can't guarantee increasing overall health of digestive system. I personally haven't suffered any stomach problem, which are commonly followed by high fiber foods, but some reviewers on many online shops claim to do so. There are many powdered fiber bestsellers available with added nutrients and their description seems more attractive. ON Fitness Fiber is great aid while dieting, which can suppress your appetite quickly and contribute good amounts of fiber per serving.

      Optimum Nutrition's Gold Standard Whey is most well-known and widespread supplement throughout the world. I've not consumed any supplements before and felt a bit nervous when tried for the first time. After years of training and working on a sedentary job, I understood that I couldn't bear such lifestyle anymore and decided to give a try to something new. That's when I decided to join supplements world and decided to start with best-know/best-seller protein, rich enough of nutrients, naturally occurring Glutamine and BCAAs.

      Citric Acid
      Sucralose
      Aminogen
      Lactase

      As you see it contains 24 grams of protein, a standard dose for most of whey products. Even tough Whey Protein Isolate is written largely on label, but still contains some portion of Protein Blend and it's not only one on market... Most of whey manufacturers do so. Also it contains 5.5 Grams of Naturally Occurring BCAAs, 4 grams of Glutamine and Glutamic Acid, which are completely enough to recover and promote muscle growth.

      Taste/Mixability/Dosing

      More than 20 Different Flavors are available, making it suitable for any taste and as a big lover of chocolate, I mostly consumed Extreme Milk Chocolate and Double rich chocolate, both very delicious! I mixed one scoop with 0.5 liters of water and drank immediately after work out, but still seemed a bit sweet for me. If you are looking for gaining weight, then 2 scoops are also good. There were some issues with mixability, I needed to shake very well, but never mixed with water completely and it was enough to leave shake for 30-40 minutes, sands like sediments appear at the bottom...

      Effectiveness

      Very first thing that I noticed after drinking this powder was quick recover. I used to do heavy cardio and resistant exercises for Kickboxing three times per week, late night. Usually on rest days I still felt tired and had no desire to exercise, but ON Whey helped to rest well and I was ready to try some spartan workouts at home, in addition to this I was more motivated to go harder on following kickboxing classes. After purchasing second and large jar of protein, I converted to only weight lifting and my muscles started to grow much more easier than ever before and became noticeable to others as well.

      Value

      I purchased fewest servings packet as an experiment for my body, costed $16.99 ($1.21 Per Serving). But since this is most widespread product for bodybuilding, uncountable number of deals and sales are available all over the world. For example, in my country you can purchase 146 serving for nearly $100 ($0.68 per serving) from local large supplements shop.

      Side Effects

      Caused bloating and gas after first use. I won't say this was ON's fault, because I'm lactose sensitive and I need to stick to protein powders which are either purest form of isolate (lactose free) or have added digestive enzymes. This is standard whey and safe for majority, but I absolutely dislike the idea of writing Whey Protein Isolate, while

      Conclusion

      This is obviously high quality protein powder and suitable for most of bodybuilders. But beware to purchase real and genuine ON product, as lots of fake powders appeared last years and you can see many articles and videos about them (differentiating) on youtube. Can't recommend if you are lactose intolerant or have any health issues, I'd prefer to use purest production of whey isolate. Meeting daily protein requirement is essential for burning fat, but it's label directly say: "For use as a dietary supplement only. Do not use for weight reduction", so I personally wouldn't recommend it as a meal replacement. Also it's the cheapest powder for it's quality, yes there are lots of cheaper products on the internet, but as I already mentioned several times, it's most widespread protein powder around the globe and much more discounts and cheaper ON Whey products are available at local supplements stores.

        Introduction

        In the last days of May, current year I got injured during football training and was forced to stop working out. Before injury I managed to lose 18 kg of fat and tried to maintain my healthy 87 kg weight, as my height is 1.88 meters. But mostly maintaining is much more difficult than striving for certain goal, so I tried to not exceed my daily calorie goal because of my sedentary job, lots of work and no physical activity during the day. Also I didn't refuse drinking beer, wine and eating junkie foods from time to time as my appetite and cravings rapidly increased... As a result I reached 94 kg in three months on 25th August and immediately rushed into gym, even tough injury wasn't gone fully. I tried one stimulant free fat burner at the beginning, but couldn't show impressive results, lost only 3 kilograms after two months of exercise, thus I decided to stick to the RSP's products and purchase Quadralean capsule. Fat burning renewed again and I managed to lose nearly 7 kg per 6 weeks!

        Ingredient Profile

        Acetyl L-Carnitine Hydrochloride 1 g
        Innobio CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) 750 mg
        Green Tea (Camilla sinensis) Leaf Extract (std. min. 50% EGCG) 100 mg
        Paradoxine Grains of Paradise (Aframomum melegueta) Seed Extract 25 mg

        According to many researches, both CLA and L-Carnitine are scientifically proved ingredient to help utilize body fat, thus making them irreplaceable supplements for cutting weight. L-Carnitine is also natural good Energy contributor and metabolism booster. A healthy adults can consume 5 grams of L-Carnitine and 6 grams of CLA per day, thus dosage of Quadralean gives you ability to drink it twice per day. Paradoxine is an extract of grains of paradise seed that has been standardized to 12.5% 6-paradol. Grains of Paradise Seed Extract is a potent metabolic enhancer, designed to promote weight loss, increase energy levels, and improve brain function. Green tea is one of the most widespread antioxidants, famous of removing free radicals and preventing damage caused by them.

        Taste/Mixability/Dosing

        One serving of Quadralean consists of three capsules, very easy to swallow. As directed by the label, I drink 1-2 servings daily, based on my workout and daily plans. Quadralean is also produced as a powder with two flavors and accoring to bodybuilding.com reviews, they taste very delicious.

        Effectiveness

        I weighted nearly 90.5 kg before taking Quadralean and I had been consuming only BCAA 5000 and other non-stimulant fat burner. As a result, after several days of replacing fat burner, I felt rapid increase in energy levels and my workouts became more intense! After 6 weeks of heavy work out, I weight 84 kg and going on to cut as many fat as possible until New Years holidays.
        My workout routine consists of split weight lifting 3 times a day and only one day of cardio (HIIT running on treadmill). Outside gym I regularly play football on weekends and at least 5-6 times per year I do kickboxing fight on amateur level, of course with special preparement nearly 3 weeks before.
        Currently I'm on restricted calorie diet following 90:10 principle (90% healthy meals and 10% cheating), thus keeping my body ready to digest any meal. Also I prefer eating high protein meals two time per day and one day per week I always consume high amount of healthy carbs.

        Value

        I bought 150 Capsules for $24.97 ($0.50 Per Serving) with BOGO deal on bodybuilding.com. 50 servings are completely enough for more than month, thus it seems very affordable for me. Prices are same on majority of websites, but I recommend to purchase it on bb, because only this website offers BOGO deal very often.

        Side Effects

        Several times I drank pills on rest day and felt little heartburn... Can't say this was exactly Quadralean's fault as I drink it everyday even now and don't feel any danger for health.

        Conclusion

        If you are trying to burn fat, restrict calories, work out regularly and follow healthy lifestyle, then Quadralean will always be great addition to your supplements! Just be sure that every non-stimulant fat burner will need more time to show results than those which boost metabolism. Also, based on my experience, cutting weight without BCAA is very hard and you always have to consume at least 5 grams of BCAA per day. Quadralean contains all the natural sources to mobilize fat stores and convert them into energy. After the first days of use you will immediately feel suppression of appetite and increase in energy levels! What's most important it's very well dosed and completely meet it's label. Drink pills or powder, no difference, you will be thankful.

        Introduction

        Meeting daily protein goal is very important for burning fat and whey protein is the best choice (unless you are lactose intolerant). Many whey protein powders are loaded with undesirable carbs and fat, making it difficult to restrict macro-nutrients consumption, so after finishing one jar of ordinary Whey Isolate, I decided to cut more calories and drink shake with less carbs and fats, so I chose all-time bestseller brand.

        Introduction

        Meeting daily protein goal is very important for burning fat and whey protein is the best choice (unless you are lactose intolerant). Many whey protein powders are loaded with undesirable carbs and fat, making it difficult to restrict macro-nutrients consumption, so after finishing one jar of ordinary Whey Isolate, I decided to cut more calories and drink shake with less carbs and fats, so I chose all-time bestseller brand.

        Ingredient Profile

        Total Fat 1 g
        Saturated Fat 0.5 g
        Trans Fat 0 g
        Cholesterol 35 mg
        Sodium 60 mg
        Total Carbohydrate 5 g
        Sugars 4 g
        Protein 24 g
        Protein Blend:
        Whey Protein Isolate
        Whey Protein Concentrate
        Whey Peptides
        Sugar
        Natural Flavor
        Lecithin
        Xanthan Gum
        Rebaudioside A
        Lactase

        Let's compare these to all time bestseller Optimum Whey Protein: In Natural Powder calories are higher only by 10, sugars and carbs are also higher by 2-2 grams, fat 0.5 grams lower, Cholesterol and Sodium both lower by 20 and 70 grams respectively. None of the products specified portions of other ingredients.

        Taste/Mixability/Dosing

        I always use 1 scoop of whey powders immediately after workout. Only problem with this product is it's Mixability, even after using hand mixer, little portion of sediments appear at the bottom. I tried only chocolate powder and loved it very much, taste also seemed to be less sweet.

        Effectiveness

        When I drink this shake post morning workout, I rehydrate immediately, my appetite is suppressed, don't crave for anything and feel recovered after 2-3 hours, no muscle soreness. After nearly one month of consumption, my muscles started to grow again and felt ready to lift heavier weights. All signs confirm it's quality.

        Value

        Currently cheapest shop to buy this powder is jet.com, where 68 servings cost $47.83 ($0.70 Per Serving). I personally purchased Natural Whey from Bodyubilding.com and paid $29.99 for 27 servings ($1.11 Per Serving). $57.99 for 68 Servings ($0.85 Per Serving) is most common price on many websites, but there lots of deals available like $51.99 on www.allstarhealth.com ($0.76 Per Serving) and you can use them with free shipping if you wish.

        Side Effects

        Felt a little bloating while consuming. Being lactose sensitive, I always drink digestive enzymes with whey shakes to prevent myself from terrible stomach problems. I consumed only 27 servings and everything seems to be ok, but for future references I won't suggest making yourself bloating for longer periods, sooner or later it would result in terrible diarrhea.

        Conclusion

        It's label does say to be Perfect For Low Fat/Low Carb Diets, but from ingredients profile it's very easy to see Natural Whey Powder contains slightly more carbohydrates and slightly lower fat, Calories are also higher only by 10... I definitely can't recommend this powder as must-try while cutting or better alternative to traditional whey powders, but I don't regret this try and from my experience I would suggest sticking to purest form of whey protein isolates and preserve wallet from paying additional dollars. I haven't compared ingredients so well during purchase, but make sure you do before making final decision.

        As some of you already know, I don't live in USA and have to order all supplements via international transportation companies. For me personally prices of all products are crucial and I actively monitor all the deals available to purchase bestsellers. Optimum Nutrition Whey and Amino Acids complexes are always bestsellers, but for me it seemed more expensive to purchase Amino Energy Powder.

        As some of you already know, I don't live in USA and have to order all supplements via international transportation companies. For me personally prices of all products are crucial and I actively monitor all the deals available to purchase bestsellers. Optimum Nutrition Whey and Amino Acids complexes are always bestsellers, but for me it seemed more expensive to purchase Amino Energy Powder. But I had an opportunity to visit Iceland this summer and only there I found this energy drinks.

        Ingredient Profile

        Carbonated Water
        Amino Blend:
        L-Threonine
        L-Leucine
        L-Citrulline
        L-Theanine
        L-Alanyl-L-Glutamine
        Micronized Taurine
        L-Lysine (Hydrochloride)
        Natural and Artificial Flavor
        Citric Acid
        Malic Acid
        Sodium Citrate
        Potassium Sorbate
        Potassium Benzoate
        Sucralose
        Caffeine (from Tea Leaf and/or Coffee Bean)
        Tartaric Acid
        Potassium Chloride
        Magnesium Phosphate.

        All amino acids listed here are used for biosynthesis of protein and for many other important processes in your body as well, Caffeine and Micronized Taurine are elements responsible for boosting energy levels. Sodium Citrate (E331) is a food additive, usually for flavor or as a preservative. Malic Acid is natural substance can convert carbohydrates into energy and is beneficial in treating various health conditions such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrom, Citric Acid is a natural preservative and is also used to add an acidic (sour) taste to foods and soft drinks, Magnesium Phosphate salts are most commonly used for bowel cleansing, low blood levels of phosphate, constipation, high blood levels of calcium, and heartburn. Potassium benzoate (E212), the potassium salt of benzoic acid, is a food preservative that inhibits the growth of mold, yeast and some bacteria, Potassium sorbate is a chemical additive. It's widely used as a preservative in foods, drinks, and personal care products. Potassium chloride is used to prevent or to treat low blood levels of potassium (hypokalemia). Potassium levels can be low as a result of a disease or from taking certain medicines, or after a prolonged illness with diarrhea or vomiting. Tartaric acid is an important food additive that is commonly combined with baking soda to function as a leavening agent in recipes. It can be used in all kinds of foods except untreated foods.

        Taste/Mixability/Dosing

        Amino Energy Sparkling RTD is produced in cans, making them very easy to drink, except those who rarely drink carbonated water. Taste seemed a bit sweet for me, but didn't stop using it for six consecutive days. As Label says, it includes only 5 grams of Amino Acid Blends, not enough to recover completely from heavy weight lifting. If it didn't contain stimulants, then I guess we would be available to drink 3-4 cans without problem even at night.

        Effectiveness

        During my visit to Iceland I had to walk at least 15 km per day and couldn't follow restricted calorie diet (not recommended from my experience, stress is largest enemy to diet and weight loss). I drank this Amino Acids everyday and was always physically ready for new adventures, my muscles preserved, didn't gain wait and always stayed focused.

        Value

        On Amazon.com you can purchase 12 such drinks for $23.74 ($1.98 Per Serving), on vitaminshoppe.com for $27.99 ($2.33 Per serving). It seems quiet affordable for me, but as locals said: "There is no such thing as cheap in Iceland", so I had to pay approximately $4 per drink(479 Icelandic Krna)

        Side Effects

        None of them.

        Conclusion

        Products like this can never substitute Amino Acids powder, but if you still have to consume some energized or caffeinated drinks during the day, Amino Energy Sparkling RTD is natural and absolutely safe option. Whenever travelling, it might not seem comfortable to take amino acids powder jar with you (even though it's cheaper), so you can purchase in local markets these cold energy drinks and use in the morning and mid-day.

         Pros:
         Cons:

        • Wake Up Energized

        Introduction

        Good sleep is important for everyone around the globe, but it becomes crucial when you have a very busy schedule and try to do lots of different things during the day. I've already consumed ordinary Melatonin spray from local pharmacy for several months, so finally decided to add some extra value to my supplements. After reading reviews of top five night time fat burners on kickasshomegym.com, I decided to purchase Lean PM.

        Ingredient Profile

        Magnesium - 150 mg
        EGCG - 300 mg (from Green Tea leaf extract)

        Introduction

        Good sleep is important for everyone around the globe, but it becomes crucial when you have a very busy schedule and try to do lots of different things during the day. I've already consumed ordinary Melatonin spray from local pharmacy for several months, so finally decided to add some extra value to my supplements. After reading reviews of top five night time fat burners on kickasshomegym.com, I decided to purchase Lean PM.

        Ingredient Profile

        Magnesium - 150 mg
        EGCG - 300 mg (from Green Tea leaf extract)
        L-Theanine - 200 mg
        Melatonin - 5 mg
        Bioperine - : 5 mg

        Melatonin is sleeping hormone and most important ingredient for such supplements. Green Tea is well known for it's great antioxidant power, neutralizing free radicals and prevent body from getting harmed. L-Theanine is an amino acid, which can help with a variety of health concerns, such as anxiety, depression, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, insomnia, and stress. Good levels of Vitamin B6 can help produce Serotonin, important chemical and neurotransmitter in the human body. It is believed to help regulate mood, appetite, digestion, sleep, memory and even sexual desire. Some studies report Insomnia is a common symptom of Magnesium deficiency and good levels of Magnesium can increase GABA. Bioperine is extracted from black pepper and has been used for many years to increase absorption of vitamins and nutrients.

        Too much Melatonin can cause sleep hangover, so according to WebMD: "For sleeping problems in people with sleep-wake cycle disturbances 2-12 mg of Melatonin taken at bedtime for up to 4 weeks has been used", thus 5 mg is safe and effective dose. Daily dosage of L-Theanine is from 100 mg to 400 mg and 200 mg is also safe. Beware of other supplements that contain antioxidants, as too many of them can easily cause serious harm to your heart... The RDA for magnesium is 310-420 mg and those who follow healthy diet, already absorb it from different foods, so 150 mg is OK per serving. No relevant caution for 5 mg Bioperine. Thus, all ingredients have safe and efficient doses for everyone.

        Taste/Mixability/Dosing

        Lean PM is produced only with capsules and you have to drink only two veggie caps (1 Serving) 30-45 minutes before on an empty stomach. These pills don't have any taste or smell, making them very easy to swallow. I've been taking only standard dose for two months and never had a desire to increase dose.

        Effectiveness

        I go to bad at 00:00 every day and wake up at 06:00. Usually for me 8-9 hours of sleep is enough to recover fully and wake up energized. After the first use of Lean PM I felt very well rested and recovered next morning, sleeping only 6 hours! Completely suitable for my schedule. Also, for some people (including me) it's difficult to eat breakfast, this can happen for number of reasons, but whenever I drink Lean PM I wake up hungry! This is the sign that my body has worked well during the night and now needs some fuel!
        I did have a sleep hangover several times, but all of them happened when I had to work hard until 03:00 AM and slept 12 hours that day, so I can't say it was Lean PM's fault

        Value

        On both Amazon and jackedfactory.com Lean PM costs $29.99, making it nearly $1 per serving. For me personally this price is absolutely acceptable, but Amazon's Choice Niteburn costs twice cheaper... I can't guarantee any results with Niteburn as appraisal of BPI Brand and especially Niteburn is relatively low on SR.

        Side Effects

        No side effects. Not even a sleep hangover.

        Conclusion

        If you are looking for product that can automatically burn fat while you sleep, then you still have to learn lots of things how fat burning is achieved. This isn't some kind of magic pill, this is great aid for people who restrict calories, eat healthy diet and exercise heavily. When you consume lean PM, your body burns more calories during sleep, helps you sleep deeper and recover fast. For me personally 6 hours of sleep with Lean PM is completely enough and I wake up 100% ready for new day!

          Introduction

          After terrible poisoning two years ago, I was diagnosed with chronic deficit of vitamins, minerals and all digestive elements. During this heavy condition I gained huge mass of fat and suffered from almost every problem associated with stomach and bowel, such as: chronic diarrhea, bloating, excessive gas etc. Immediately started intense medication course and drank plenty of pills everyday. I still consume digestive enzymes and Probiotics + Prebiotics supplements, but my health has significantly improved and current pills are much weaker. I used to drink enzymes from two brands: One local brand named Krezam and second German Mezym forte. when I saw price of Now Foods Super Enzymes, immediately decided to purchase.

          Ingredient Profile

          Calcium (from Calcium Carbonate) 36 mg
          Betaine HCl 200 mg
          Ox Bile Extract (min. 45% Total Cholic Acids) 100 mg
          Papaya Fruit Powder 45 mg
          Enzyme Blend: 225 mg
          Pancreatin: Amylase 37,000 USP Units
          Protease 37,000 USP Units
          Lipase 2,960 USP Units
          Bromelain (from Pineapple) 120 GDU
          Papain (from Papaya) 100,000 PU
          Cellulase 10 CU
          Acid Stable Protease (Aspergillopepsin) 50 SAPU

          Amylase Breaks down Carbs, Protease - Protein, Lipase - fats, Cellulase breaks down cellulose molecule into monosaccharides such as beta-glucose. Both Papain and Bromelain are good support for Protease to break down proteins better. Ox Bile aids the function of the Liver and Gall Bladder, helps produce more bile to digest, process and disinfect fats and proteins. Betaine HCI is for stomach acid production. Calcium's is one of the well-know and consumed mineral, especially benefitial for bone health, teeth, blood etc.

          Taste/Mixability/Dosing

          Only capsules are produced and you have to drink one serving during meals. They have no smell or taste, thus easy to swallow. Most relevant ingredients are Amylase, Protease and Lipase, as you can see from Ingredient Profile. From my medication experience 20,000-25,000 Lipase, 18,000-22,500 Amylase and only 1,250-1,500 Protease are completely enough for adult to digest ood, these were amounts found in my Krezam and Mezym forte Enzymes. So dosage is slightly above average and good absorption of macro-nutrients is guaranteed.

          Effectiveness

          As I mentioned above, I still have some gut, stomach health issues and I'm very sensitive too many foods, thus I easily understand which enzymes work and which don't... After 4-5 days of using Super Enzymes, stomach irritation decreased, no bloating, no gas, my body tends to be calm and function ordinary.
          I'm lactose sensitive and whenever I drink whey protein isolate, I add this enzymes to my shake and absorb protein safely. Otherwise after 15-20 seconds my stomach starts bloating and diarrhea strikes!

          Value

          For $18.56 you can purchase 180 veggie caps on Amazon, thus you pay nearly $0.10 per serving - absolutely affordable and acceptable price.

          Side Effects

          Absolutely no side effects.

          Conclusion

          Whether you have serious digestive problems or just looking for better absorption of foods, Now Foods Super Enzymes are best option on market. Except major three enzymes, that break down also three main macro-nutrients, this supplement will add extra plant based sources to improve gut and stomach health. If you are lactose intolerant, you can add this enzymes to your shakes and drink safely. If even this enzymes aren't enough, than it's time to consult physician!

          Introduction

          After more than year of regular strength training and weight loss, I decided to try several protein sources with little portions and decide which brand I'll be using for the rest of my time. Reason why I didn't consume whey earlier was my health concerns: lack of digestive enzymes and lactose intolerance. Most of protein brands I consumed were much cheaper and not more than 14-16 servings. Even though this product is very expensive for it's amount, I liked it's description and gave a try.

          Introduction

          After more than year of regular strength training and weight loss, I decided to try several protein sources with little portions and decide which brand I'll be using for the rest of my time. Reason why I didn't consume whey earlier was my health concerns: lack of digestive enzymes and lactose intolerance. Most of protein brands I consumed were much cheaper and not more than 14-16 servings. Even though this product is very expensive for it's amount, I liked it's description and gave a try.

          Ingredient Profile

          25g Protein (from Grass Fed Whey Protein Concentrate)
          12g Carbs (from Prebiotic Soluble Fiber: VitaFiber-Isomalto-oligosacchride (IMO), Sweet Potato Powder, VitaBerry Fruit Blend (Organic Strawberry, Organic Raspberry, Organic Blueberry, Organic Tart Cherry, Organic Elderberry, Organic Cranberry), VitaVeggie Blend (Organic Broccoli, Organic Broccoli Sprouts, Organic Tomato, Organic Carrot, Organic Spinach, Organic Kale)
          16g VITAMINS & MINERALS (Vitamin A 78 mcg, Vitamin C 1 mg, Vitamin D 7 mcg, Calcium 190 mg, Sodium 170 mg, Potassium 140 mg)

          25 grams of protein is standard amount for most of Whey powders, but other macro-nutrients and ingredients took my mind immediately. Healthy carbs are essential for both: losing weight and Improving performance. I eat broccoli, sweet potato and all berries regularly to keep my weight scale going down. Absolutely all of these carbohydrate sources are wonderful for everything and they make Truefit Protein Ultimate All-in-one powder

          What's most important for me, I'm still lactose sensitive and since Truefit Protein contains Lactobacillus Acidophillus Probiotics I safely drink it directly without any pills. With other brands I always consume high dose of digestive enzymes.

          Taste/Mixability/Dosing

          Taste is absolutely wonderful! As a big lover of milkshakes, can't wait to finish my workout. Just several seconds of strong shaking are completely enough to mix well. Can't say anything special about amount of protein, go for 1 or 2 scoops immediately after workout if you wish good meal replacement and high amount of healthy macro-nutrients.

          Effectiveness

          As for effectiveness of only whey protein, it does it's duties very well: completely satisfies thirstiness, hunger, helps to recover fast and muscle growth can be noticed after 3-4 weeks of use. Except this whole my body feels very well and full of energy. Digestion is very important for people like me and can guarantee no problems with this shake, after regular consumption of ordinary whey, even with digestive enzymes my stomach feels bloated and irritated, while with Truefit protein my stomach feels much more healthier.
          In addition to this, I also used Truefit for baking Protein rich muffins with eggs, banana and chocolate milk, which was great alternative for my cravings.

          Value

          This is only and huge disadvantage of Truefit Protein. Cheapest online market to purchase this whey is bodybuilding.com at $29.99 price,
          with only 20 servings ($1.50 per scoop), each jar costs twice as much as direct competitors. If you look at prices of BPI Protein on www.muscleandstrength.com, price ranges from $1.14 to $0.56 Per Serving, for Allmax whey products on same website price ranges from $1.00 and $0.57(with current discounts). I gave example of these two brands, because even tough I'm satisfied with Truefit, it's still hard to compare it with bestsellers like Optimum Nutrition, Myprotein, Nitro-tech and many more. But, not any of these brands contain so many minerals and vitamins.

          Side Effects

          Didn't experience any of relevant side effects.

          Conclusion

          So Truefit lean protein is really on of the best and healthiest supplements you can purchase on market. Whether trying to cut or gain muscle/strength, this supplement can help you to achieve your daily protein goals when consumed properly. Even if you love to bake with whey for fighting with your cravings, all of its macro-nutrients are ideal. Problem is price, if you wish to get all of these elements, you can get them from foods directly or purchase them from other markets, such as sweet potato powder from amazon and add them into your shake. Hope RSP Nutrition soon reduces price and starts manufacture of large amounts.
