Multipower Muscle Fit Protein
Advantages: Right nutrients
Disadvantages: tastes horrible, heavy in stomach
I drink protein every now and then after the gym to help build and recover my muscles, and I usually bring my own powder from home and mix with water at the gym after a workout. I recently forgot to bring said powder to the gym with me and I had to resort to buying one of the protein shakes the gym have in stock. The ones they have are the Multipower Fit Protein.
Multipower is a generally well known brand in the sports and fitness industry which make sports supplemtens, bars and drinks among other items. Their fit protein is their basic, ready mixed protein drink which is designed for after workout use to help rebuild and restore the muscles you have used. They come in a variety of flavours but I only had a choice between vanilla and strawberry. I opted for vanilla.
The shake comes in a generally large glass bottle, with a white, metallic screwtop lid which I found easy enough to remove. The bottle was a little difficult to hold as it is quite big, but then I suppose it is made for muscly, big handed men, not little women like me lol. There is a wraparound label on the bottle which explains what the shake does and what is in it in the way of carbohydrates, fat, protein etc.
I found the shake to be ok tasting, but not the greatest. I have come to know that most protein shakes do not have a nice taste to them, but this was not up the top of the chain. It was a bearable taste, but given the option I do not think I would drink it again. The texture of the shake is quite thick, a little bit thicker than my own mixed shake, but was still easy enough to swallow.
There is quite a lot in the bottle, and it made me a bit bloated drinking it, as I think this one is actually bigger than the usual one I drink. It sat quite heavily in my stomach and was still there, being heavy, quite a while later.
I paid £2.50 for the bottle, which is a general price for a pre made protein shake these days, but I think that is a bit too expensive and I won't be paying that for one of these again. I always make sure I have my own now as I did not like this one compared to my own brand I usually use.
Whilst this drink does have the right nutrients etc in it for muscle repair after a workout, I did not like the taste or the horribly heavy feeling it left in my stomach afterwards and I do not think I will be drinking this again. I would may be tempted to try some of their other flavours, but I believe they would all give me the same heavy stomach feelin.
Some people I know say that this the perfect shake for them, so I suppose it all depends on personal preference, but I will be steering clear of this one in the future. I give this shake a 3 out of 5 stars, and I some what recommend it, for the nutrients, but not the taste or texture.
Summary: A thick protein shake that doesn't taste nice
