  3. hey true, i'm lactose intolerant and i usually only take whey isolate protein to avoid the lactose. I've used muscle milk and other products that have protein blends and say "low" lactose successfully, so is Combat just as low as those products?

  4. why aren't muscle pharm products available on nutraplanet.com????

    Some people have been requesting MP on Nutra for a while, from what I understand Nutra is working on it.

    A couple people i know with L.I. haven't had any major problems with combat, the added digestive enzymes help with that as well.

    Are you suggesting this product is suitable as an all in one?

    I agree it is good before and after sleep. But a 100% whey product would be far more suitable pre and post workout.

    Why despite the added AA's is the protein content so low?

    Please post the Amino Acid profile for this product. I can not find it on your site.

    I would be interested to see the scientific papers to back up your claims for this product. Has it been tested?

    Combat would be suitable for any situation for when your going to use a supplemental protein.

    I agree it is good before and after sleep. But a 100% whey product would be far more suitable pre and post workout.

    There is a lot of conflicting information on this topic and really it is up to personal preference. I agree 100% that a whey isolate works better in a pre workout situation but I personally have always had better results with a blend post workout. I think a lot of it depends on how quickly you have a meal following your post workout shake. We do have a 100% whey product coming out shortly as well for people who prefer 100% whey in those two times.
    Why despite the added AA's is the protein content so low?
    The protein content per scoop is right on par with every other protein out there,(24g per scoop) most of the product that offer significantly higher protein per serving usually just have you taking multiple scoops as one serving.
    Please post the Amino Acid profile for this product. I can not find it on your site.
    I'm sorry but I do not have the specific amino acid breakdown for the protein. I will see if I can get that information for you.
    I would be interested to see the scientific papers to back up your claims for this product. Has it been tested?
    We did test the product with our Omega wave testing before it was released. Any of the claims made for this product can be backed up by the tons of research on supplemental protein and athletes that can be found on the web.

  9. Here is our 6 Stage Testing Protocol that is used for every product we bring to market.

    Scientifically Advanced 6-Stage Research and Testing Protocol

    Each and every product sold by MusclePharm® is the end result of a long development process involving the expertise of three of the most eminent nutrition scientists, and top professional athletes in the country.

    Step 1: The Vision
    CEO Brad Pyatt, President and fitness icon Cory Gregory and top sports nutritionist Eric Serrano, MD take the first step by envisioning a new nutritional supplement with a specific set of performance properties.

    Step 2: The Formulation Process
    Dr. Eric Serrano, the leading sports nutrition doctor in the US, who is the company's medical director and formulator, begins putting together several advanced, oftentimes scientific breakthrough combinations and ratios of ingredients resulting in superior formulation.

    Step 3: Athlete Protocol Test
    After a preliminary formulation of the new product has been created, samples are administered to a cohort of professional athletes in the NFL, MMA, MLB, and elsewhere. These athletes provide feedback to MusclePharm® based on their experiences with the supplement. We have several top expert fitness and strength coaches who help with feedback and testing of our Omega Wave Technology Machine that is administered to a baseline of top professional athletes, giving us real-world feedback and a practical read on the effectiveness of the products:

    Step 4: Research and Product Testing
    Following this stage, the formulation is forwarded to Dr. Jeffrey Stout, a professor of exercise physiology at the University of Oklahoma, who performs follow-up testing to ensure its soundness from a nutritional and health standpoint. This includes clinical trials and studies, omega wave testing and several in-depth research analyses on ingredient ratios and combination's.

    Step 5: Compliance and Safety
    From there, the new product is sent to Dr. Lowell T. Harmison, distinguished researcher with over 40 years of experience and leadership in biomedicine, who checks for compliance with the Food and Drug Administration, ensures that all manufacturing practices are current with FDA-approved regulatory guidelines, and assesses random audits on the manufacturing plant to ensure everything is functioning as needed.

    Step 6: NSF Certification Program and Banned Substance-Free Guarantee
    -The final step of MusclePharm's product development is by far the most important.

    At the request of the National Football League (NFL) and the National Football League Players Association (NFLPA), NSF has developed stringent criteria for product certification under the NFL/NFLPA Supplement Certification Program. In addition to requiring NSF Certification to dietary supplements or functional foods criteria, the program requires each product lot to undergo analytical testing to ensure the absence of any substances banned by the NFL/NFLPA.

    In addition to the strict NSF Dietary Supplements and Functional Foods Program requirements, products certified under the Official NFL/NFLPA Supplement Certification Program must meet the following stringent criteria:

    • Formula Evaluation - NSF provides confidential review of product formulations to screen for potential banned substances and determine testing requirements.

    • Good Manufacturing Practices - Production facilities and packaging facilities are inspected to insure controls are in place to avoid the introduction of, or cross contamination with, banned substances.

    •Clinical Testing for Metabolites - At the client's request, NSF will oversee clinical testing to determine if any ingredients metabolize into prohibited substances that may result in disqualification from competition.

    • Chain-of-Custody Procedures - Each product lot tested for banned substances must be collected by an NSF auditor. All products pending testing are held under locked quarantine until NSF notifies the manufacturer of successful test results.

    The Official NFL/NFLPA Supplement Certification Program:

    • Offers NFL players product options so they will not unknowingly consume banned substances via their sports nutritional products.

    • Reduces the likelihood of NFL players testing positive for banned substances consumed unintentionally.

    • Ensures certified dietary supplements and functional foods contain the identity and quantity of ingredients listed on the product label and is free of any undeclared contaminants or prohibited ingredients.

    • Provides a mechanism for third-party evaluation for the metabolites of dietary supplements formulations.

    * MusclePharm is currently in the NSF approval process.

  10. FYI: For label accuracy Amino Acids are not reflected in the protein amount shown on the Nutrition Fact Panel. Although some companies will show Amino Acid's as extra protein on the Nutrition Fact Panel, it is not accurate and very misleading to the customer.

    It would be useful to know the AA profile, as anybody serious about bodybuilding knows that not all AA's are equally important.

    As there is such a large amount of AA's added to the protein (in my experience a suspicious process to mask a low quality protein base) I am sure you can post how many ADDED AA's in grams are in this product.

    Set me on fire, or take this as an opportunity to PROVE the quality of your product.

    Tons of online research just doesn't cut it with me. There is very little factual information on your website, it is all marketing. Some of it confusing.

    You seem to have steps 1 and 4 the wrong way around. Product placement Marketing before performance Research = a product you are not prepared to disclose the nutritional profile for.

    Any product worth the packaging it is in will have a gram for gram break down of the amino acid profile of a typical sample. Any bodybuilder who knows his stuff will look for the AA profile.

    Reasons why you wouldn't disclose the Amino Acid profile would include...
    A unreliable and cheap (Chinese) whey source.
    An unusually low amino acid profile in useful AA's
    A denatured and useless for bodybuilding AA profile.

    Have you got an independent nutritional test you can post?

  17. why did the price of combat go up at the vitamin shoppe ? but priced still remains the same on the MP website and other online retailers ?

  18. i wanna try orange creamsicle...but can i see the amino acid profile say per 100gm?

  19. Anyone tried the s'mores flavour? Any ideas what the taste resembles?
    “We are what we repeatedly do. Therefore, e****lence is not an act, but a habit.”

  20. its funny how all the MP reps avoid the specific question of amino acid profile...any company that does not show it always has something to hide..especially now with all these protein blends with added glycine and taurine..
