ULTIMATE NUTRITION MUSCLE JUICE 2544
Ultimate Nutrition claims that Muscle Juice 2544 is "quite simply the most calorie-packed and best tasting weight gainer on the market today. With Muscle Juice 2544 you will grow Muscle with 55 grams of Ultimate Nutrition's special protein blend (Whey Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Concentrate, Calcium Caseinate, Egg White Albumen). This provides a 6 hour protein release so you muscles are constantly fed and nourished. GROW Muscle with 162 grams of Ultimate Nutrition's premium quality carbohydrate complex to fuel your body to obtain maximum possible growth. Grow Muscle with 17g of high performance fat containing MCT oil (Medium Chain Triglycerides) which support performance by increasing energy and cannot be stored as fat. MCT allows for a slow and steady release of energy and will not increase serum cholesterol levels."
Muscle Juice 2544 packs a whopping 1020 calories! This is one of the highest calorie contents I have ever seen in a weight gainer. As stated above, Muscle Juice 2544 contains a blend of four different proteins. However, the amount of each protein in Mucle Juice 2544 is different than stated above. In other words, Muscle Juice 2544 contains mostly protein concentrate, followed by isolate, calcium caseinate and egg white albumen. This wide spectrum of protein does indeed keep your muscles fed for an extended period of time. Along with a high protein content, Muscle Juice 2544 contains a ridiculous amount of carbohydrates, both simple carbohydrates and complex carbohydrates. However, 60 grams of these 162 grams of "premium quality carbohydrates" are simple carbohydrates. Therefore, unless your goal is to gain weight, this particular weight gainer is best taken pre-workout when your body can use the energy to boost your workout performance or immediately post-workout when your body is craving carbohydrates to replenish glycogen stores, and of course to boost that insulin and drive nutrients into the muscle cell. Muscle Juice contains 17 grams of fat, which for the most part is made up of Medium Chain Triglycerides. Ultimate Nutrition claims that this form of fat supports "performance by increasing energy and cannot be stored as fat." While these fats are known to increase energy, my reading has concluded that Medium Chain Triglycerides can be stored as fat. However, these fats are very unlikely to be stored as fat, but to say that they "cannot" be stored as far is a bit of a stretch, in my opinion. Ultimate Nutrition's Muscle Juice didn't stray far from its claim. Therefore, in regards to the claim, I award Ultimate Nutrition's Muscle Juice 2544 Cookies N Cream flavour an 8/10.
Ultimate Nutrition's Muscle Juice 2544 Cookies N Cream flavour had a strong cookies n cream taste. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of cookies n cream flavouring but I do enjoy the flavour to some extent. However, if you are a fan of cookies n cream flavoured snacks, I'd imagine you'd love the taste of this shake. The high simple sugar content of Muscle Juice 2544 definitely sweetens the flavour. Therefore, in regards to taste, I award Ultimate Nutrition's Muscle Juice 2544 Cookies N Cream flavour a 7/10.
If you attempt to make this weight gainer in a shaker, you're going to have difficulty. However, in a blender, it mixes in satisfactorily. Keep in mind that most weight gainers are difficult to mix. The texture of Muscle Juice 2544 was slightly gritty with the chocolate chip pieces. However, these helped to sweeten the flavour and was more than tolerable. Therefore, in regards to mixability/texture, I award Ultimate Nutrition's Muscle Juice 2544 Cookies N Cream flavour a 7/10.
As stated above, the claim was on mark for the most part, the taste was good and mixability/texture was satisfactory. Muscle Juice Cookies N Cream flavour has an outstanding amino acid profile and is loaded with quality protein, carbohydrates and fat. However, keep in mind that 60 grams of those carbohydrates are in the form of simple carbohydrates. This type of carbohydrate spikes insulin. Therefore, this weight gainer should be limited to pre-workout or post-workout consumption, when this effect is desirable. Perhaps most importantly, this weight gainer is economically friendly. This is one of the cheaper weight gainers on the market. This is very impressive because it still manages to taste good and have an outstanding ingredient profile. In regards to price, Ultimate Nutrition's Muscle Juice 2544 Cookies N Cream flavour gets a 9/10! Therefore, for an overall review, I award Ultimate Nutrition's Muscle Juice 2544 Cookies N Cream flavour a 7.8/10.
