...by the beard of Zeus, what have we here?! The shiny, new and utterly out of this world Superior Protein by Olympus Labs has INVADED the Mix!!We've got to start this by addressing the 'Trojan Horse' in the room...WHAT is going on with this branding?! Before we even get into the wonders lurking inside these [...]Read more »
Olympus Labs Superior Protein - Mocha Mermaid (Mocha flavour w/ cereal pieces! 25 serves/2lb)
By ZEUS, what have we here? Olympus Labs' first foray into the protein shake arena is, as you'd imagine, suitably EPIC! Every flavour is a delicious, creamy, cereal milk-style Whey/Casein blend - worthy of the gods themselves! - and, in the crazily named 'Mocha Mermaid' Superior Protein flavour (yep, you'll notice the flavour names are nearly as crazy as the futuristic look of the striking tubs!) prepare yourself for sweet and satisfying Milk Chocolate, coffee-infused shake with REAL cocoa cereal pieces (don't be put off, folks! The coffee-flavour in here is very subtle but just enough to make things interesting!)...the perfect, fun fuel for that daily Odyssey, whether it be to the gym or the office!
Olympus Labs is a company that's quickly earned a reputation for the quality of their ingredients and the heroic results their products bring to the 'DemiGods' who use them; it's no surprise their admirable ethos has been reflected in their much anticipated, and aptly named, Superior Protein.
This Space Age / Ancient Greek-themed show (haha, don't ask, guys...we don't know!!) starts, as it should, with an ultra-premium protein blend, employing a fully-disclosed Whey/Casein blend (50% Whey Protein Concentrate/WPC80 and 50% Micellar Casein, to be specific...and the exact protein yields are spelled out on the back of the tub so you can be SURE you're getting what's promised!).
This is one of the all-time classic (Greek or otherwise!) protein blends as far as we're concerned, folks! It's an exact balance of fast and slow digesting proteins - keeping you muscles fulled with all-important amino acids over a longer period!! - and, even better, lending this protein a gorgeous, milkshake-style creamy and satisfying consistency, which works PERFECTLY alongside the crazy and irresistible (we can't get enough of these!) cereal-piece INCLUSIONS in the 'Trojan Horse' that is each and every tub!!! You KNOW we love our inclusions here in the Mix, and Olympus Labs have gone all-in! With every flavour - from 'Toucan Twist' (Froot Loops!) to 'Not My Gumdrop Buttons' (Gingerbread!) - you'll find a generous helping of suitably-themed cereal pieces!! All hail Olympus Labs!!
In typical Olympus Labs fashion, though (this isn't just a protein for mere mortals, after-all!), the story doesn't end with the premium whey and the legendary flavours & inclusions..nope, you'll find a sprinkling of supplement sorcery at play here, too!! Digestive enzymes and, extra cool, an ingredient called Velositol!!
Whilst the Digestive Enzymes are always awesome additions to help your stomach quickly and efficiently breakdown and process your protein shake, Velositol has been shown to aid uptake, potentially DOUBLING muscle protein synthesis (er...so what? What's that? That's the muscular repair/rebuild system, to the rest of us...increased muscle protein synthesis means quicker recovery which can lead to more lean muscle gains and, yep, the resultant fat loss, too!) Very cool.
