Muscle Elements has released a protein powder called The Truth, an acronym for “Taking Responsibility to Utilize Transparency & Honesty.”

The Truth is a protein powder packed with several protein forms, and most notably is its labeling is completely 100% transparent, which is a rarity nowadays.

Muscle Elements The Truth touts a stellar formula that isn’t “amino spiked,” nor does it contain artificial sweeteners or hormones.

I bought a bag of the chocolate bar flavor, here are my thoughts on this protein powder.

Behind the Scenes Look at the Formula

Muscle Elements The Truth packs 24 g per serving and is only 160 calories. This is nice for those that are trying to mitigate weight gain while maximizing muscle recovery and growth.

Whey concentrate and whey isolate are the 2 whey forms found in The Truth. Whey protein concentrate contains more lactose than whey isolate, which has been filtered to remove lactose and cholesterol. Whey protein is a fast-digesting, popular protein form supplemented with by people who hit the gym and are looking to expedite the muscle recovery process and build muscle.

A slower digesting protein form that is often supplemented with before bed in an effort to prolong protein intake while sleeping is micellar casein. Its molecular structure is the reason for its slower digestion. Micellar casein is used for the same purpose as whey protein, to increase muscle recovery and growth.

The last protein form in Muscle Elements The Truth is milk protein isolate. Milk protein isolate has undergone a filtration process to remove lactose.

All of these protein forms are rbGH-free, meaning they are free of hormones. Also, Muscle Elements makes it known on their labeling that they don’t engage in amino spiking practices. Amino spiking is quite scandalous. It is when companies, in an effort to save money and cut corners, spike their formula with amino acids that drive up the total protein count but don’t offer any real benefit.

How to Maximize Results

Muscle Elements The Truth should be used like any other protein powder, in conjunction with regular exercise. To use The Truth, mix one scoop with 6-8 ounces of either water or milk, depending on your preference.

You can experiment with optimal liquid amounts, adding more or using less to attain preferred flavor. Also, in an effort to increase protein amounts and consume additional macronutrients, some people will throw chocolate protein powders in a blender and add peanut butter.

I got to try the chocolate bar flavor, and it was delicious. I have tried several chocolate protein flavors, and Muscle Elements The Truth was one of my favorites. It was a great taste, and there wasn’t any biter or strange aftertastes.

I added a scoop with 7 ounces of water in my shaker cup, and I shook the cup for about 15 seconds. It mixed well, and I didn’t notice any large clumps or bad settling at the bottom of my cup.

Final Thoughts

Overall, Muscle Elements The Truth passes all my requirements to dub it a great protein powder. It tastes great, it mixes well, and it is packed with a good amount of protein and is low in calories.

Also, the transparency that Muscle Elements is bringing to the table is both comforting to me as a consumer and also admirable. I hope more companies follow in their footsteps.

Each bag provides 24 servings and will cost you around $42-45, depending on where you purchase it. Regardless of whether you get it for a cheaper or more expensive price, in my mind, it is definitely money well spent.
