RAW Protein Shake Chocolate Featured

Fuel your fitness journey with RAW NUTRITION’s Protein Shake RTD! Get ready to dominate the gym and taste the victory!

RAW Nutrition has been on fire lately, continuing their surge as the 2023 Brand of the Year from PricePlow’s 2023 Supplement Industry Awards. This month alone, they’ve released a CBUM Essential Charged, an incredible new pre-workout formula that’s packed to the gills with stims, alongside a new Lemonade flavor of the Thavage Pre-Workout.

Performance in the gym is one aspect of gains, with the other – arguably more important – aspect being recovery. What’s the key to recovery? Protein, of course.

RAW Nutrition’s Protein RTD: Grab and Go Gains

Like any brand worth its salt, RAW has a solid catalog of protein products. It also started with their main Grass-Fed solate Protein, but they kicked it up a major notch when Chris Bustead joined and launched CBUM Itholate. There’s also Raw Nutrition’s Vegan Protein, which is 100% plant-based.

Raw Nutrition: Built From the Grould Up

Now, RAW is releasing a new protein platform for the athlete on the go. The Raw Nutrition Protein RTD is a protein shake that needs no tub, no scoop, and no mixing. Just throw one in your gym bag, twist off the cap, and pad your macros with 30 grams of high-quality protein.

We’re going to dive into a little summary on how RAW Protein RTD works, but first, let’s check PricePlow for good RAW deals, and check out our video review of the new product:

RAW Protein RTD – Ingredients

The impressive 30 grams of protein in the Protein RTD come from milk protein isolate and calcium caseinate. Cow’s milk naturally contains two forms of protein: whey and casein.[1] Typically, the ratio of whey to casein is 80:20. In many protein products, the casein portion is separated out, leaving whey alone, but RAW’s inclusion of milk protein isolate preserves casein, in addition to the added calcium caseinate to bring the ratio of casein even higher.

What’s this mean? A thick and rich shake that’ll definitely have more viscosity and better texture/mouthfeel than your standard whey protein shake!

The power of whey… boosted when adding casein!

Raw Nutrition Biceps

Train hard with RAW

There’s plenty of research establishing whey protein’s effectiveness. It is, after all, a complete protein that contains all nine essential amino acids in adequate amounts.[2] This, in turn makes it highly bioavailable, meaning your body can digest and utilize that protein effectively.[3] As if that wasn’t enough, whey is insulinogenic, which is a good thing as it relates to exercise, because it helps to stimulate muscle protein synthesis.[4]

The whey and casein combo provides additional benefits over supplementing whey alone. One study found that milk protein stimulated muscle building faster in rats than whey or casein alone.[1] This effect is thought to arise from the differing metabolism times, providing a longer stream of amino acids, especially leucine (the main branched-chain amino acid and most anabolic of the essential aminos).

Beyond leucine – how casein and whey synergize

However, it’s not just the leucine. Also note that whey protein can stimulate insulin production, casein better stimulates insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) production.[5]

Other ingredients inside

Depending on the flavor, the Protein RTD also contains some ingredients for taste and texture like cocoa, coffee (flavor dependent), MCT oil, cellulose gum, sunflower lecithin, gellan gum, sucralose, and more.

    Protein whenever needed

    Life is busy. Unless you earn a living as a professional athlete, you can’t dedicate all of your time towards your fitness goals.

    This doesn’t mean, however, that you can’t constantly be improving and getting in the best shape of your life. It does mean that you’re going to need to fit your workout and recovery regimen into the rest of your life, and this can be quite difficult at times. When you’re on the clock, it can be very useful to have a pre-made protein shake you can simply chuck in your bag and move on with your day.

    RAW originally released their Protein RTD in four flavors: Vanilla Milkshake, Chocolate Milkshake, Mocha Latte, and Salted Caramel. That’s quite an opening lineup – it will be difficult to decide which flavor to try first.
