All in one protein powders are an effective solution for people who want the benefits of protein, without the hassle of having to remember which specific form of protein to take in which particular set of circumstances.
They are also for great for people on a budget or people who live in smaller homes and don't have the room to store several different products and their packaging.
Soooooooo.......... without, without further ado, here is our review of the best all in one protein powders we have found.
MuscleTech Anabolic Halo
Based on whey protein (concentrate, isolate and hydrolysate), Anabolic Halo also contains milk protein, calcium caseinate and egg albumen for results which are quick but also long lasting.
As well as providing 40g of protein per serving, Anabolic Halo contains 5g of creatine, which has long been used by sports people as it helps with the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which provides the energy for muscle contractions.
Anabolic Halo contains tart cherry concentrate, which is full of antioxidants and helps to reduce inflammation. It also provides electrolytes such as magnesium, hence it can be used to replace a post-workout drink.
Each serving of Anabolic Halo includes more than 1g of branch-chain amino acids (BCAAs), 1g of L-alanine and 650mg of advanced glutamine. Hence it can take the place of a carbohydrate energy drink.
One serving is 64g of powder. Anabolic Halo is best mixed with water rather than milk.
