American Muscle’s Isolyn is 100% hydrolized whey protein isolate. Isolyn contains all natural flavoring with Stevia. No artificial anything. No Cholesterol, No Sodium, Fat Free, Sugar Free, Gluten Free, and Hormone Free.  Isolyn is currently offered in three different flavors: Chocolate, Vanilla, and Banana.

Chocolate Flavor

Taste 9/10

The chocolate flavor of Isolyn had a great taste whether it was mixed in water or milk which is a huge positive for those who cut out dairy products while cutting fat.  It has a nice sweet taste from the added Stevia which can always be diluted if you don’t have much of a sweet tooth…but who doesn’t!

Vanilla Flavor

Taste 8/10

The vanilla flavor of Isolyn wasn’t as great as the chocolate flavor but still not bad at all.  It has a similar aftertaste to the chocolate which is probably due to the added Stevia.  Not much of a taste difference between mixing in water or milk which is a plus.  Overall, tolerable taste and a good alternative for those who are not fond of chocolate flavored drinks.

Banana Flavor

Taste 9/10

The banana flavored Isolyn was a nice change from the normal chocolate and vanilla flavored protein powders that most supplement companies offer.  It had a very strong banana flavor with a similar Stevia aftertaste as the other flavors.  The banana flavor also did not change much when mixed in water or milk.

All Flavors

Mixability 10/10

Mixed perfectly with water and milk whether a shaker was used or stirred with a spoon.  No complaints!

Effectiveness 9/10

I was blown away by the ingredients used in Isolyn.  26 grams of high quality whey protein isolate with 0 grams of fat and 1 gram of carbohydrate.  I found Isolyn to be perfect for cutting.  I won’t get into the amino acid profile but it contains everything you need for successful recovery after a grueling workout.  I definitely felt like I recovered faster and had less muscle soreness while using Isolyn as opposed to most brands of protein without added BCAA’s.

Value 7/10

Isolyn is priced at $59.99 for 30 servings of 26 grams of protein.  It is a little on the expensive side but that is the price you pay for high quality ingredients that work and flavors that are more than just tolerable but actually have you looking forward to your post-workout protein shake.  Overall,  Isolyn is the way to go if you don’t mind the price tag!
