Since you are reading this, chances are you are trying to figure out what are the main differences between Shakeology and Muscle Milk. First, I have to say that I have used both (I continue to drink Shakeology on a daily basis) and both are great tasting, excellent products.
However, the main differences are the ingredients and uses. Let's do a brief description of both products first.
Shakeology is an ultra-premium nutritional shake. What makes it so unique is because it contains 70 ingredients (derived from whole food sources), many of which would be difficult to get on your own. Some of these ingredients include acai, goji berries, camu-camu, maca root, and sacha inchi. It is also gluten free, caffeine free, and contains no refined sugars.
CytoSport Muscle Milk Lean Muscle Protein Powder is a lactose free, protein-enhanced formula that promotes increased strength, lean muscle growth, and fast recovery from exercise. It contains 20 vitamins and minerals as well as 32 grams of high-quality protein (2 scoop serving.)
There are various uses for Shakeology, although its primary use is as a meal-replacement. Many users drink this shake to help with weight loss. Other uses include:
- Increase energy
- Daily Multivitamin
- Dessert alternative
- Stop cravings
- Coffee replacement
- Improve digestion
Muscle Milk is best used within 30 - 45 minutes after workouts to help start the recovery process. Because of its high protein content, it works well for helping to build and maintain lean muscle.
Shakeology is not known as a protein shake, however, it does contain 15 grams of whey protein (isolate) in one serving.
As you can see, the two products are quite different in terms of ingredients and how you wish to use them. If you seek to improve your overall nutrition, Shakeology is probably the way to go. If your goal is to focus on building muscle, then Muscle Milk may be your choice.
If you still want to try Shakeology and experience it for yourself, take advantage of the Bottom-of-the-Bag Guarantee. You can use the entire bag for 30-days and if you don't like it for any reason, return it for your money back (less s&h) even if the bag is empty!
I recommend ordering chocolate and blending with almond milk and a little peanut butter - so good!
