CorePower Protein Review

CorePower and I are becoming fast friends.  I typically only post about stuff I've tried on my own with my own $$.  I love this stuff.  After an angry lift Wednesday morning.  I hit the overpriced café for a quick protein shake before I got to work.

Core Power is pretty natural and utilizes whey protein (it’s also lactose-free), I drank the chocolate light which is only 150 Calories for 20 g protein.  I believe they use a mostly casein (milk protein) to whey ratio.  Casein is a slower acting protein so it will repair muscle tissues a lot longer post workout whereas whey is for immediate protein if you’re into lifting.  Ideally, you want to consume no more than 20 g protein post workout (if you need it) or as a meal.  The rest just turns to fat.
