Introducing the Monster Family

In 2009, Cytosport released a new line of products called “Monster.”  Their intent was to cater to the high end bodybuilder who wanted the best quality stuff.  The first born was Monster Mass.

Mid-2009, Cytosport has done it again with 3 new family members!


Monster Amino: 5000mg BCAA Goodness!

Let’s not get too technical as I’ve not done a full taste test yet but here’s what the label claims:

  • L-Lsoleucine 1.25g
  • L-Leucine 2.5g
  • L-Valine 1.25g

Sure there’s some calories upwards of 120 but less than 1g of sugar.

Monster Pump: 17g + Cellular Volumizing Complex

This is obviously a pre-workout formula.

Monster Maize: 40g of Complex Carbs

Is this the next super carb?  If you read Will Brink’s summary about Waxy Maize it may give you some insight.  However, what I can say about Cytosport is they deliver top quality products and if the content isn’t up to par, a few customer calls usually get things moving in the right direction.

And there you have it.. without a taste test yet.  Without any photos of the actual labels.. these are the new line of Monster products code named…

Combined with Monster Mass,  you technically have the full line of pre/during/post workout nutrition covered to the hilt.  Yes, there’s a nice diagram on the back of when exactly to take the products and in which order.  Something that I’ve found lacking with other lines unless you scoure the website.

    Monster Amino is incredible, I picked it up about 2 weeks ago and added it to my stack. I have seen some great gains with it. It has the Waxy maize starch in it, whick drives the aminos directly into the muscle by bypassing the stomach and immediately absorbing throught the small intestine, you can actually feel it hit your system (if you maintain a clean diet.)
