Universal is a phenomenal company in the world of sports nutrition supplements and has produced always best and out of the class products for the bodybuilders with special needs of nutrition. It always worth spending money on the Universal supplements and I never second thoughts whenever I vouched for this company. I have used Universal Ultra whey pro, Animal Pak, Stak, Nitro and Animal Rage and Universal Max Protein that was earlier named Animal Max Protein. I have used 2 cans (it used to come in cans earlier, the packaging has changed from sometime) and the results were awesome.
My lifts improved and it enhanced the endurance as well. The ingredient profile will tell you why it is superior to other whey proteins which we will discuss later. Universal max protein was also the most expensive whey I have ever purchased in terms of price per serving or cost per serving.
I took this because a friend vouched for this and was very confident about the effectiveness of this product. There are recovery ingredients like glutamine, taurine and creatine monohydrate that make this an ideal supplement for post workout recovery. You may take it at other time of the day as well but I used it for post workout only along in water.
It costs around $40 for 24 servings and thus, its quiet expensive in my opinion. It contains 2.5 grams of creatine, 1 gram of glutamine and 500 mg of taurine in every serving. There is 30 grams of protein in approx 42 grams of serving. It is not whey protein concentrate but a blend whey protein isolates hydrolysates and concentrate and egg white. Additionally there are glutamine peptides and isolated casein peptides.
Okay, so these were the details about the supplement. I would like to comment about the cons firstly. I didn’t like the taste; it was more like a bland or really mild chocolate. You can feel the creatine crystals with the last sips as it possibly settles down in the shaker. You need to mix it well to fully dissolve the creatine in it.
Universal Max Protein is having excellent mixability. Not even a single lump forms if you use it in water. Honestly, I never took it in milk so I can’t review over it. But there are no complaints if you are planning to use it in water immediately after workout.
I never felt a bloat or flatulence while using this protein. The digestibility is quite good and this implies that there aren’t any filler added to this whey and I believe this can be used while you on cutting cycle as well because it contains just 3.5 grams of carbs per serving.
As I said before, it’s quite pricey and I may get more than 3 lbs whey for the same price or even 5 lbs tub in sale. I wish Universal could supply it in larger packaging at a lower cost.
The best part I liked about Universal Max protein is its effectiveness. It can help you recover in very less time. Take it post workout with 40 grams of glucose for insulin spike and creatine, glutamine and taurine are good enough to help you recover from stressful workouts in the gym. My lifts improved while I was using it. Bench press went up by 20 pounds.
You can use it if you have sufficient funds. I will criticize Universal’s strategy to sell it in 2.2 packaging while keeping the price so high. You may add creatine to your post workout shake and 10 grams of glutamine as well with BCAA to make a really effective whey protein shake.
I will rate it 8 out of 10 will refer it to others for using immediately after workouts.
Universal Max Protein, 9.0 out of 10 based on 1 rating
