Beast Protein Continuous Release Review

Beast Sports Nutrition is a relatively new company that has been on the rise for sometime now. They won breakout brand of the year in both 2012 and 2013 mainly because they're products are made to be multi-purpose. With Beast products you don't need to buy tons of other supplements because you can usually find what you need along with other beneficial ingredients in one product.

Continuous Release Beast Protein is basically a "protein blend", meaning it has fast, medium, and slow digesting proteins. These 5 proteins are also known as:

1.Whey Protein Concentrate
2.Whey Protein Isolate
3. Whey Protein Hydrolysate 
4.Micellar Casein 
5.Egg White

The idea around using a protein blend over just traditional whey is this, Studies show that when you combine a slow digesting protein such as micellar casein to a fast digesting protein your muscles will receive an initial burst of amino acids then a steady slow stream of aminos to keep you building muscle for longer.

There are two flavors available, Chocolate and Vanilla. I'm going to be giving a review of the chocolate flavor because thats the one i bought. 

Protein per scoop: 25 grams/ The average I've seen range anywhere from 20-25 grams, so this was good. 10/10

Flavors: 2/ This is a new product so they get a small pass as I've seen some brands with over 5 flavors. 7/10

Taste and Mixability: I usually dread any kind of protein that is chocolate because it taste far from it. With Continuous Release Beast Protein this was not the case. I used one serving/scoop into 8 or 9 ounces of milk in a standard shaker cup that has that metal whisker. I shook my cup for about a minute then took a look and a sip, there was some clumps so i closed it and began to re shake it for another 2-3 minutes. The sweet spot would be somewhere between 2-4 minutes of shaking to have no clumps. The taste is like those chocolate milks you got at school, to me it was actually good.This is not one of those proteins that require chugging. 9.5/10

Ingredient Profile: Its hard to say what exact ratio you get with the different proteins because it doesn't say.Gonna email them and see if i can get a breakdown. so until then it gets a 7/10
