The protein blend of Myotein can be called average, if not great. The website for the product claims to use 5 different types of protein in its blend which includes whey protein concentrate, whey protein hydrolysate, whey protein isolate, colostrum, and micellar casein. For many, this might seem a great deal, as the number of proteins use is quantitatively high, but a pure and good protein blend must only have isolates and hydrolysates.
The one unique ingredient that Myotein uses is hydroxyecdysone, which has been proven to increase protein synthesis and thus results in a more rapid rate of muscle growth.
The major drawback of the product lies in the limited quantity of BCAAs or Branched Amino Acids. These acids are responsible for muscle recovery and aid the lean muscle growth but Myotein only has limited amounts of BCAAs present. It, in fact, contains glutamine, but it does not have any other category of branched chain amino acids -- apart from the ones that are naturally present. Added BCAAs are important for the effectiveness of any protein powder.
The sodium count of the product stands at 120 mg per serving which again is unnecessarily high. cholesterol levels stand at a mere 27 mg which is a good thing.
