It features naturally occurring branched-chain amino acids to help muscles recover and reduce soreness after intense workouts, it adds. Additionally, it boasts 7-8 grams of carbohydrates and 1 gram of sugar. Featuring 200-210 calories, Myoplex Shred protein shakes are offered in three flavors: Muscle Mocha, Chiseled Chocolate and Cinnamon Swole.
