Grenade Carb Killa RTD - An Honest Review

  • High Quality Protein Source
  • Good Protein : Carbs ratio
  • Ready to drink
  • Less than 200 calories

Grenade Carb Killa is an informed sport tested, ready to drink protein shake. It offers 24-25g of protein, 10-14g of carbohydrates (mainly sugars) and 6-7g of fat, all depending on which flavour you choose.

The protein contained within is derived from a milk source, so you can be sure that you’ll be consuming all the essential amino acids your body needs in order to promote muscle protein synthesis or stave off muscle breakdown.

These shakes may be consumed at any time during the day. For example in the morning when many people don’t have the time to make a protein rich breakfast, so having one of these in your fridge can make the morning routine easier. The benefit of this is increasing amino acids in the blood stream helping to prevent muscle breakdown (catabolism) after being in a fasted state overnight. This would also work in the same way if they were to be used as a snack to fill gaps between meals. As well as this, various studies suggest this may also help to curb food cravings due to protein having a certain satiating effect which would benefit people on a calorie restricted diet.

Another possible usage is post exercise. The few additional simple carbohydrates alongside protein will help raise insulin levels, which in turn, will increase the speed of nutrient delivery to damaged muscles, aiding in a quicker recovery.

While a standard whey protein powder will be a better choice if minimal carb intake is a goal of yours. Grenade Carb Killa boasts one of the best protein to carb ratio within the ‘ready to drink’ protein shake market and still maintains a fantastic taste and a thick texture for all flavours, making it one of the best all round ready to drink shakes. However, even though they’re advertised as ‘low carb’, there are sufficient amounts of carbs and fats included in the product which will have to be taken into consideration for people on strict diets.

The cost effectiveness of Grenade Carb Killa can be disputed and deemed a pitfall. The cost of one serving (one bottle) is around £2.49, comparing this to whey protein powders shows that they could be deemed as an inefficient use of money. Some brands of protein powder offer prices as low as 0.2p per serving which is a remarkable saving, especially when considering the fact that powders already offer a large degree of time saving and efficiency factors.

Grenade Carb Killa is available in three equally fantastic flavours; Fudge Brownie, Chocolate Mint and Cookies and Cream.
