Protein is the structural core of the human body and is at work in every single cell. Protein performs many essential functions in the body. It is required for growth and repair of tissues and aids in the transportation of nutrients, oxygen and nitrogen. Add two scoops (56 g) to 300-350 ml of cold water in a hand held shaker and shake for 30 seconds. Allow to settle for about 45 seconds before drinking. Have 2-3 servings daily (including one serving one hour prior to bedtime). Servings may be halved.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent all protein shake - pistachio flavour 16 Mar 2013
    By luke997 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
    Verified Purchase
    I prefer high protein so when I found IGF-1 in pistachio flavour, I was very keen to give it a go.

    Just finished first tub - and this easily gets both thumbs up.

    1) Nutritional profile
    It's a good mix of protein from various sources (whey isolate/concentrate, casein, egg, soy).
    71g protein (16g BCAA), 2g carbs and 5g fat - it's exactly what I like - almost all protein, so in theory should work really well
    There are some added vitamins & minerals (full list on USN site), I particularly like presence of magnesium and B1/2/6/12

    2) Ease of use
    Powder mixes very well, following instructions it dissolves well into pretty much anything. I use it with water, milk, as well as thick fromage frais - where I just stir it and it still blends completely

    3) Pistachio flavour
    This is the only area where I could be picky. It's not really pure pistachio, rather pistachio/almond, but... it's still fantastic flavour and definitely best out of any flavours I've ever tried.

    4) Does it work?
    Definitely yes!.
    As a pre-workout (weights) shake it helps to keep energy levels high in the initial stages - which sometimes are more difficult to me as I do IF and train fasted in the evening. No difference as a pre-workout shake for the runs.

    As an after workout (weights, runs), it really shines, speeds up recovery really well, any soreness goes away noticeably faster

    As an all round supplement it's adds a nice variety to the diet - I especially like it in my healthy high protein pistachio cheesecake.

    5) Cost
    Price wise, it's actually quite cost effective, @ 42 it works out to 0.26 per 10g of protein, so could be part of balanced diet without dent in the budget.

    All in all... I think this is my new favourite protein! 5/5

    4.0 out of 5 stars Not as easy to stomach as strawberry/chocolate 10 July 2013
    Verified Purchase
    I always stick to the usn pure protein but this month I was feeling adventurous so opted for a different flavour.....this is definitely off my list, its like eating Christmas cake marzipan at 8'o'clock in the morning. Lesson learned back to the other flavours.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible Taste 28 May 2013
    This stuff is actually really good but my god the tase makes it absolutly unbearable. This is the first time ive tried protein shakes and other reviews recommended USN as one of the best tasting protein shakes out there.

    All i can say is, after trying the strawberry cream, i would hate to experience what the others are like if this brand is supposed to be nice tasting. I couldnt stomach it. even the smell of it now makes me sick. Maybe chocolate,cappucino or pistacio will be better tasting, but stay well away from strawberry cream.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best tasting protein I've ever had 20 April 2013
    By Robert
    Verified Purchase
    I gave this 5 stars because it tastes really nice and is excellent quality. It sounds a bit of a strange flavour, but the smell reminds me of marzipan on a Christmas cake. It mixes really well in a normal shaker, but is fantastic if you blend it up with ice. It comes out really smooth and thick like a milkshake. I prefer just to mix mine with water and ice.

    I've also mixed it with porridge and made pancakes with it too, and it's brilliant!

    It has more protein per serving than a lot of others I've tried, which makes it easier to get the necessary number of calories in a day without stuffing myself. I also find these shakes help keep me feeling fuller during he day so I don't pig out on unhealthy stuff. Unlike cheaper powders I've tried they aren't overly sweet and there is no nasty aftertaste.

    USN products are at the pricey end of the spectrum but the Amazon prices are pretty reasonable. I get through a 2.28kg tub in about a month.

    I've tried the other flavours and they're really good too, but this is my favourite one.
