Myotein is a relatively new protein powder that is quickly making a name for itself. You will certainly understand what makes this protein powder so popular and unique by the time you are done reading this review. I will also point out the reasons why other protein powders are ranked higher than this one.
XPI is another impressive and successful company in this industry. They have numerous widely known products including two of their most popular, Androshred and Alpha-Focus.
The protein blend is very average…it could definitely be better, but is actually one of the main reasons this product has become so popular. The product description on XPI’s website really stresses the fact that they use 5 different types of protein in their blend because it makes it sound like a better product to the uneducated consumer, but that is not really the case.
This blend consists of whey protein concentrate, whey protein hydrolysate, whey protein isolate, colostrum, and micellar casein. This is a decent blend because it contains whey protein isolate and hydrolysate, but it would be much better if the other three components were not included. Do not be fooled by their attempt to make multiple types of protein seem like a good thing.
One thing that makes this product unique is the fact that it contains hydroxyecdysone, which can speed up protein synthesis and allow for muscles to grow more rapidly. That is one of the reasons why this product ranked in our top ten.
One thing that upset me about the product was the lack of BCAAs. It contains glutamine, but it does not contain any other of the branched chain amino acids aside from what is naturally occurring. Added BCAA’s should be present in numbers in any protein powder you take. Without them, the protein powder just can’t do the job as well.
The sodium count per serving is at 120 milligrams, which is unnecessarily high, but not to the point where you should be concerned. Cholesterol is moderately low at 27 milligrams per serving. XPI has written their own review for this product on their website. Obviously, this review is very positive, but understand that they are attempting to show every ingredient in a positive light to get people to buy the product. Trust what you know and the nutrition label before you trust their own evaluation of the product. Take a look at the label and decide for yourself whether you like this product or not.
This product is most likely going to be pretty effective due to the fact that it contains whey protein isolate, whey protein hydrolysate, glutamine, and hydroxyecdysone. With that said, it does not contain enough BCAAs for it to be the most effective product out there. It is likely to be effective, just not as effective as it could be.
It seems it is producing results for its users based on all the reviews I have read on the product. It may provide you with the right ingredients to build muscle mass, but that doesn’t make it the healthiest product. As I keep saying, the one thing you should make sure you go back to no matter how many reviews or advertisements you read, is the nutrition label. This is where you can truly see for yourself what makes it a good or a bad product.
This protein powder tastes like a milkshake- a very nutritious milkshake. It is a very smooth drink that goes down with ease. The reason it tastes so good is the sodium count being at 120 milligrams per serving and the 3 grams of sugar in every serving. These are both slightly high, but will certainly improve the taste of the product.

The main benefit of this product is that it could allow you to gain lean muscle mass. I don’t think this product is for everyone, but I would recommend it to athletes and people trying to gain muscle.
Sometimes taking a mass gainer can take a toll on your digestive system. This protein powder is a pretty good alternative for those who can not physically handle mass gainers but want to put on some muscle.
As I have said before, different products are better for different people.
