Living up to the Balance Sports Nutrition promise of quality and efficacy, this product offers a unique blend of premium protein with specific phytonutrient and amino acid support. This ensures each scoop of lean protein not only support lean muscle recovery, but also delivers metabolic support for fat-burning and shredding programs.
Each serve of Balance Ultra Ripped Protein contains 280mg of L-Carnitine Tartrate. This dipeptide is composed of two amino acids linked together, which are lysine and methionine. L-Carnitine is naturally produced in the human body and performs the crucial metabolic function of transporting fatty acids into the mitochondria for conversion to energy. Therefore, L-Carnitine not only supports the burning of fat but also enhances energy production. A recent meta-analysis of nine clinical trials published in 2016 indicates that L-Carnitine supplementation leads to an additional weight loss of 1.33kg, though this ranged from 2.09kg to 0.57kg (compared to placebo).
The results of Carnitine supplementation tend to increase with time, making longer term supplementation beyond 6 weeks more beneficial. This product also contains Green Coffee and Green Tea extracts, which provide antioxidant support and may assist with the fat burning process. Green Tea offers a range of remarkable polyphenols, one of which is EGCG. Green Tea supplementation has been shown to lead to greater reductions in abdominal adiposity as a result of exercise, while Green Coffee delivers thermogenic chlorogenic acids.
Garcinia cambogia, containing hydroxycitric acid, may assist with the specfic management of food cravings, perhaps by increasing serotonin levels in the brain. And if you crave less calorie-rich food and your metabolism is burning a little faster, fat-loss results are easier to attain.
Balance Ultra Ripped Protein is an excellent source of essential amino acids, rich in branched chain amino acids (BCAA). This is the perfect recipe for recovery from exercise, as leucine is an activator of mamallian target of rapamycin (mTOR), one of the signals for muscle repair and lean growth.
And in order for this mTOR signal to be put to good use, we must provide all of the essential amino acids, which are all contained in Balance Ultra Ripped Protein. Interestingly, the essential amino acid tryptophan is not used as a building block for muscle, but is, however, crucial for supporting neurotransmitters, such as serotonin and melatonin. This Balance Naturals Ultra Ripped provides a unique blend of essential amino acids, phytonutrients and specialised amino acids that can be used after exercise to assist recovery, as an occassional meal replacement or as a snack for use between meals.
Balance Lean Ultra Ripped Protein Review
The team at Sporty's Health were more than impressed with this lean fat-burning protein powder. We found it hard to find a clean and natural thermogenic protein, which is exactly what this product delivers, with natural flavours and the natural sweetener thaumatin. Thaumatin is actually a protein-based sweetener extracted from the katemfe fruit, which we thought was pretty cool. Who would of thought of adding a sweet protein? Beats adding sugar or artificial sweetener, that's for sure.
We really liked the flavours and thought mixability was excellent. The protein is nice and lean and delivers some great natural fat burners, like green coffee and green tea. The added BCAAs were a nice touch as well. These aminos taken on top of a quality protein powder might seem like overkill. But a lot of the research is pointing towards additive effects. In other words, the protein is more effective with some extra BCAAs, likely due to the mTOR effect.
All in all, we were happy to drink down these shakes after exercise, or to replace one meal per day. We don't know how we could give it less than a rating of 4.9 out of 5.
