USPlabs Modern Protein Packed Cinnamon Rolls

USPlabs Cinnamon Rolls

One of the best things that I miss from my childhood was waking up to the smell of fresh cinnamon rolls. They were always so warm and the icing was always delicious! Fortunately, I have found a way to continue to enjoy these without all of the extra sugar and carbohydrates. These cinnamon rolls are so easy to make, and there are only five ingredients! USPlabs Vanilla protein helps to create the perfect icing. The perfect gift idea for the food lover!

Photo Ready Labeled Product with an Amazing Taste

I know what you may think, another protein product…really? The USPlabs team has put together yet another protein product. Since the discontinued OxyElite Protein, the void of a protein product was shortly filled with the newly formulated Modern Protein. The biggest question we get is, “Is it the same as OxyElite Protein? What makes this protein product different?”

The breakdown of proteins within the Modern Protein goes like this. The proteins are made up of Triple Isolate Matrix, Milk Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Isolate and Whey Protein Hydrolysate (fastest acting protein source) along with a part Whey Protein Concentrate and Micellar Casein (slow digesting protein source).  With this blend, you get a part fast digesting and absorbing proteins and a part moderate to slow digesting and absorbing proteins, leaving you feeling full longer.

They also add a Lipid Matrix and Digestive Enzymes to this blend. The Lipid Matrix consists of Sunflower Oil, Mono & Di-Glycerides (healthy fatty-acids), Disodium Phosphate (salt like compound), Silicon Dioxide (a compound to absorb moisture), and Tocopherols (flavor protection)). Some may have issues breaking down a heavy whey concentrate or a caseinated protein, with the lipid and digestive support, this product should breakdown easy for a stress free digestive system.

Last but not least, the flavor. Although the competition of flavored protein on the market is high, most companies stick to the core flavors, Chocolate and Vanilla. This may be temporary but for now, the flavors USPlabs built – although basic – are delicious and can be consumed with good old H2O or mixes well in a blender/nutrabullet.  The cost per scoop isn’t bad, some may ask, it is roughly $1.15 USD per scoop in the 2lb container and roughly $0.94 per scoop in the 5lb container. Both are now available.

Creatine Works!

And, as one of the most studied ingredients around, Creatine has been shown to improve body composition and strength time and time again. [1-4] But, before you jump on the Creatine Bandwagon, the question you must ask is…

Which Form Creatine is the Best?

This extremely important question is one of Absorbability and Creatine Per Gram.

There seems to be a different form of Creatine coming out every other week with the most recent Creatine craze being Creatine HCl.  Creatine HCl claims that its increased solubility leads to a greater rate of Creatine absorption.  But, Ol’ Faithful—Creatine Monohydrate—has already been shown to be nearly 100% absorbable! [5-8]

At this point you may be asking yourself how you benefit from Creatine HCl if Creatine Monohydrate is already, arguably, as absorbable as it gets?  The answer…

USERS OF CREATINE HCl DON’T BENEFIT FROM INCREASED ABSORPTION; THEY JUST PAY MORE FOR IT!

Now that we’ve debunked the Creatine HCl solubility/absorbability myth, we’re left with the question of Creatine Per Gram.

Creatine Monohydrate is made up of a Creatine Molecule bonded to a Monohydrate Salt.  The resulting Creatine Monohydrate bond is only made up of 88% Creatine. [8] Therefore, for each very absorbable 1 gram of Creatine monohydrate you take, you’re really only getting .88 grams of Creatine.  Who knew?

Creatine HCl is made up of a Creatine Molecule bonded to a Hydrochloride (HCl) Salt.  Believe it or not, 22% of the Creatine HCl bond isn’t even Creatine.  At this point, if you’ve been duped into taking Creatine HCl, you should be getting a little concerned.  The result is that Creatine HCl is only 78% Creatine!

Shocking, I know!

There are other popular forms of Creatine, but it just gets worse from here.  For example, I won’t waste your time telling you that Magnesium Creatine Chelate is only 45% Creatine!

Enter Creatine Anhydrous…

A definition of Anhydrous is containing no water, especially water from crystallization, such as a salt. Therefore, the CREATINE ANHYDROUS MOLECULE IS 99-100%* CREATINE! [8]

Creatine Anhydrous also boasts the same, if not slightly better, absorbability as Creatine Monohydrate, nearly 100%.

*Non-Instantized. BioCRE™ instantized creatine anhydrous contains ≥ 96% creatine per gram.

USPlabs reveals their newest product Modern Creatine.

It appears USPlabs is set to push out a creatine product. With little information, we cant assume anything at this time but if Modern Creatine is built like the Modern BCAA+ powder, it should pretty effective. Just a glance at the product label, you can see that have included BioCRE™ and Betaine Anhydrous. USPlabs is set to release this product to their Inner Circle before it goes live in stores. Looks like we will just have to wait and see what exactly makes this creatine, MODERN!
