Muscletech is always developing new and exciting products designed to promote maximal muscle gain, fat loss and athletic performance. They are the world leaders in research and development, and have consistently created new trends in the sports supplement industry for decades.
Phase 8 is the brand new protein supplement from Muscletech, as part of the Performance Series, and is designed to work in conjunction with Nitro-Tech and the other Performance Series products. Phase 8 is a protein blend designed to release amino acids for up to 8 hours - perfect for night time or for longer periods without food during the day. The six protein sources featured in Phase 8 vary in their absorption rates, which makes it an ideal all-round protein supplement.
- Protein Blend - Phase 8 is made up of six different protein sources: milk protein concentrate, whey protein concentrate, micellar casein, calcium caseinate, hydrolysed whey protein isolate and whey protein isolate. The casein sources are fairly slow digesting - micellar casein, for example, can take up to eight hours to digest, making it the ideal nighttime protein source. Whey isolates are the fastest digesting protein sources, especially if hydrolysed, and are perfect for first thing in the morning, or post-workout.
- Digestive Enzymes - Phase 8 also includes two digestive enzymes - papain and amylase. Papain is an enzyme which breaks protein down, ensuring the amino acid components are better digested, while amylase breaks starches down, turning them into sugars for energy.
Flavours & Sizes
Muscletech Phase 8 is available in a 2kg container (50 serves), in Chocolate, Strawberry and Vanilla flavours.
Each serve of Phase 8 includes 26g of protein from the six sources. This provides 4.6g of BCAA's and 2.2g of glutamine per serve. Most people will start with one scoop of Phase 8, but depending on your bodyweight and protein needs, you may need two scoops per serve, which will provide 52g of protein.
At just under $2 per serve, Muscletech Phase 8 is not the cheapest protein powder available. Generally, protein blends will cost a little extra, and for a diverse blend of protein sources, it's not too badly priced.
Muscletech Phase 8 is designed to complement Nitro-Tech and the other Muscletech Performance Series supplements. It's the first sustained-release protein Muscletech have released, and is ideal for anytime of the day due to the varied absorption times of the proteins. It's another solid product from Muscletech, and can be used with just about any goals in mind.
