My ProteinActive Beast Bar Review
ProteinActive are a newcomer to the supplement scene and are against some stiff competition, however, their growing range of products are looking impressive and best of all, good value. I am particularly interested in their Beast Bar as it provides an All-in-One solution for people on the go and I find these type of products very useful whilst rushing around between work, rugby training and lifting in the gym.
This is designed more like the typical macho, muscle building product that was typically found on the shelves 5 or 10 years ago which is rapidly going out of fashion. It is called the ‘Beast Bar’ after all. That aside, it is clearly packed with ingredients to help you with your muscle building gains. The ProteinActive logo is completely naff though, whoever designed that and released it was watching wayyyyy too many shopping channels in the 1990’s and it looks really amateur.

What we are most concerned here with is the protein, creatine, beta-alanine and ZMA which are pleasingly found in abundant numbers.
Protein is commonly known to be the foundation of any supplementation in sport.
Creatine is held with high regard and really does pack a punch when it comes to muscular size and strength.
Beta-alanine is used for improving athletic performance and exercise capacity, building lean muscle mass, and improving physical functioning in the elderly.
ZMA comprises of:
Magnesium – Research into magnesium supplementation also increased testosterone production in men.
Vitamin B6 – Studies prove that a lack of vitamin B6 leads to a decrease in testosterone.
Zinc – Studies show that this has a link with healthy testosterone production.
Take 2 bars daily for maximum results.
These do not have quite as much protein compared to Phd’s Synergy iso 7 bar because they are only 50g compared to Phd’s weightier 70g. They do not taste the best either…other than that I am finding it difficult to criticise.
My ProteinActive Beast Bar Conclusion:
All in all this is a brilliant all-in-one bar, it is extremely good value and gram for gram is packed full of vitamins, protein and a whopping 5g of creatine, beta-alanine and ZMA – this combination is not found in any other all-in-one bar. It also packs in more vitamins that the Phd or Maxinutrition alternative.
Each bar is only 1.54USD/1GBP/1.41EUR/2.08AUD which is extremely good value, so much so that these are now my pre-rugby training staple!
