It's commonly known that you want a faster digesting protein isolate after your workout and that's just what Recon1 Isotope has to offer. It's a whey protein isolate which means it is going to digest quickly after your workout and get to your muscles quicker.
So let's jump right into what I think about it. Hopefully this can help you come to a decision as to what you're looking for in a protein powder.
I ordered the cake batter flavor and I must say I'm not crazy about it. I mean it's not terrible but it's also not the best thing I have ever tasted when it comes to protein powders. Maybe there other flavors taste better but I was feeling a little spontaneous when purchasing it.
As far as mixability goes I must be doing something wrong. I've read all the reviews on the Redcon1's website and no one has had a problem with clumps in their shake but I seem to always have clumps.
I use one of those blender bottles with the little blender ball in it and shake it for a good amount of time but I still get clumps. Now it's not the worst thing to have happen but it just doesn't have that smooth taste most people look for in a protein shake.
They're not huge deal breakers but this will not be my first go to protein that I would recommend.
There does seem to be a notable difference of how long I stay sore for after a hard workout. I feel like the time and intensity I am sore for has decreased since I've started taking Isotope.
It also doesn't mess with my stomach like a lot of protein shakes do. It's lactose free protein so it is a great option for those who are lactose intolerant like I am. I don't have any complaints as far digesting the protein goes.
It's not a very expensive protein and it does it's job fairly well although I feel that it doesn't mix as good as it should nor does it taste as good as I want it too but it's not a bad investment.
You will still see some great results from taking this along with a solid workout regimen. It all comes down to what you're looking for in a protein powder.
Redcon1 Isotope is definitely a valid option for a beginner lifter or even an advanced lifter. Check it out and tell me what you think about it!
