Ultimate Nutrition Muscle Juice Review
Ultimate Nutrition's weight gainer supplements Muscle Juice 2544, and Muscle Juice Revolution 2600 are two of the best-known on the market, and are widely used by trainers who are trying to stack on muscle and strength. The original Muscle Juice 2544 has been such a popular supplement over the years that even with the release of the new Muscle Juice Revolution 2600, Ultimate Nutrition has continued to make and distribute the original blend.
Both Muscle Juice products offer a similar ratio of protein to carbohydrates, but there are some subtle differences between the two that will help anyone looking for the perfect weight gainer to make their decision. Let's look at the ingredients list for each of the Muscle Juice gainers:
Ultimate Nutrition Muscle Juice 2544 6kg
- 55g protein from whey protein concentrate, whey protein isolate, calcium caseinate, egg white albumen
- 152g carbohydrates from maltodextrin and fructose
- 18g fat from medium chain triglycerides (MCT's)
- 250g serving size, 990 calories per serve
Ultimate Nutrition Muscle Juice Revolution 2600 5.04kg
- 56g protein from whey protein isolate, concentrate, milk protein isolate, hydrolysed whey protein, egg protein isolate, micellar casein, milk protein concentrate, calcium caseinate
- 170g carbohydrates from corn maltodextrin, rice maltodextrin and Karbo-lyn
- 14g fat from canola oil, MCTs, fish oil, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA)
- 1g glutamine blend
- 50mg digestive enzymes
- 265g serving size, 1020 calories per serve
There are some clear differences between the two Ultimate Nutrition Muscle Juice products that will certainly help anyone who is looking to choose between them. The original Muscle Juice 2544 has a smaller serving size and more servings per tub (24 serves v 19 serves), however that is not the only benefit that the original blend has over the Muscle Juice Revolution.
The Muscle Juice Revolution contains eight different protein sources as opposed to the four in the original blend, meaning that the digestion and absorption rates are better and more steady in the Revolution. In addition, the fructose has been replaced with Karbo-Lyn in the new Muscle Juice blend, meaning that it is better suited to fast digestion than the original - which makes it superior for pre/post workout. The lowering of the fat content also helps the new blend digest quicker.
If you are choosing between the Ultimate Muscle Juice 2544 and the Muscle Juice Revolution 2600, you have better value and a slower digestion rate in the original blend. For a better all-round gainer, with the variety of fat sources, added digestive enzymes and an eight-source protein blend, the new Ultimate Nutrition Muscle Juice Revolution 2600 should be the choice for most trainers. Pick either of the two for a great weight gaining experience, but our pick is definitely the Muscle Juice Revolution 2600 as a the superior choice.
