Sustained Release Whey Protein Complex
Low Carb Protein delivers a unique source of amino acids by combining an Ultrafiltered Whey Protein Concentrate, Instantized Calcium Caseinate, Cross Flow Microfiltered Whey Protein Isolate, and Glutamine. This unique blend offers a sustained release of "Fast & Slow" proteins, meaning that the amino acids enter the bloodstream at different rates. This allows for higher amino acid concentrations in the blood for longer periods of time, therefore, increasing nitrogen retention. Low Carb Protein is also remarkably high in Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs), which are the most required amino acids needed to replenish muscle stores that are utilized during strenuous exercise.
The Next Generation Protein
The biochemists at MRM have taken protein supplementation to the next level, without the worry of wasting ingested protein. The addition of NitroZyme helps breakdown long and short chain amino acids into smaller, more readily absorbable amino acids for maximum digestion and absorption. Some concerns with the popular "high protein diet" used by many bodybuilders and dieters is that the body is unable to naturally digest high amounts of protein at one time. NitroZyme helps the body release more amino acids from ingested protein than digestive enzymes alone. So when individuals (men, women, seniors as well as athletes of all ages and sports) take Low Carb Protein enhanced with NitroZyme, the body can absorb more free amino acids directly into the muscles to increase muscle size, strength and lean body mass.
Each scoop of Low Carb Protein provides 23g of a unique protein blend of undenatured and easily digested and absorbable protein. This formula was designed to provide your muscles with all of the essential amino acids required for maximum muscle strength and development. Low Carb Protein mixes instantly, tastes delicious and is Aspartame Free!
Add one slightly heaped scoop (approx. 30 grams) of Low Carb Protein to a 3-4 oz glass of cold water, milk or juice. Protein supplementation is recommended between meals and/or immediately following your workout. Low Carb Protein mixes instantly, no blender or shaker required.
Low Carbohydrate Diet (Weight Management Program): A recommendation of 1 scoop per day for those trying to increase their dietary protein intake while decreasing intake of carbohydrates.

I was not a big fan of this flavor, which is odd because I love my other MRM purchases. I found the strawberry flavor very artificial, almost like a saccharine-sweet gum, and certainly couldn't taste the banana at all. However, I'll use it up in combination with other powders to mask the taste, since the nutritional stats are good.
Solubility is great, and I like that it's got the protein, but it's just not good. It's far too sweet. I've tried to choke it down but I just don't know if I'm even going to be able to use it. The directions were to add it to 4-6oz of liquid, and that was awful. It was like drinking syrup it was so sweet. I added it to a full 8oz of milk and it was still way too sweet. For me, this is a miss. It shipped really quick and the cost was great, which is why I'm still giving it two stars. And if you like your shakes super, super sweet, you might like this, but I can't handle it. Might try to use it in a protein bar recipe to add sweetness.

As easy to mix as it says

I really hate it when you get protein food that says its suitable for using in shakers and you end up with lumps. This one worked fantastically, excellent for when you are on the go and don't have a blender. Strawberry banana is quite a yum flavour too
My first protein shake

This is the first protein shake I have ever tried. For me, the most important thing is to get the calories and the protein, so the way it tastes isn't all that important. I didn't expect mych taste-wise either, and honestly, it made me gag. But, I get 23g of protein with only 2g of carbs, which is awesome! So I'll just have to suck it up and chug the whole thing in one big gulp! I chose to get it shipped to me in Norway with DHL ($8), and it only took about 3 days! Big plus for that!

I initially bought the chocolate version of this protein powder, and was very happy with that. I like this even more though. And that is really good - considering I really dislike most protein powder solutions. I prefer to mix it with milk though, as it gives a more creamy, mild and natural taste. However, I always mix protein powder with milk. It is still absolutely recommended even when mixed with water. Highly recommended!
