Universal Ultra Whey Pro Review : I recently bought Universal Ultra Whey Pro 10 lbs pack and here is my first review after using it for about 10 days now. Being very honest, the first reason why I went for Universal was the value of money that I was getting with it. Universal is one of the well known Supplement companies so quality is not really a concern when you buy their product. I have been buying Whey supplements for quite a while now but this is the first time that I bought a Universal product. The idea of trying Universal occurred to me every time I bought my supplements but always for one reason or another, I ended up buying some other brand. Now finally after buying and using Universal Whey for a few days, I can say that I am quite pleased with it.
Price: Their prices are always very reasonable. I bought the 10 lbs pack for almost Rs. 8000 whereas products of other brands of same repute were costing way more than that. BSN whey would cost over 9k for 10 lbs and ON is well over 10k.
Servings: This is the value of money that I was talking about. A universal 10 lbs pack contains 151 servings which is way more than other well known whey supplements. For example, BSN 10 lbs would only give you 97 servings with equal amount of protein; Muscletech Phase 8 would give 108 servings with slightly more protein per serving. ON 10 lbs comes with 146 servings but their price is way too high comparatively.
Nutrition: Each scoop of Universal Ultra whey contains 22 grams of protein which in my opinion is okay. Total fat consumed for 116 calories per serving is 1.5 grams.
Taste: I bought the cookies and cream flavor because it was the only one available at that time. Taste is quite okay if not excellent. It feels a little weird if you mix it with water, kind of tasteless but tastes great if you mix it with skimmed milk.
Mixing Ability: I have had no issues mixing it with both water and milk. Couple of shakes and it mixes pretty well. I did not find any lumps remaining at the bottom of the shaker even though I usually take my shaker to the gym and drink in between and immediately after workout.
Performance and Gains: As I mentioned, I usually keep sipping my protein shake in between the workout and this product works wonders. My energy level stays high throughout the workout and I do not feel exhausted even after working out for more than an hour and a half. It has a very specific mixture ratio of protein, dextrose sugar, Creatine, Leucine, etc., that maximizes results. After an hour of hard work your body’s glycogen stores have been completely depleted and your body starts cannibalizing muscle and not fat. That is the danger zone and where this product get’s that glycogen back in line, which also helps deliver the protein more efficiently. That is what in my opinion makes it great in terms of recovery after workout.
This product is also easy on the stomach even though you may feel a little gas problem and go farting around for initial couple of days but rest assured, it is just for initial 2 to 3 days of starting to use the product. I am taking 3 scoops a day and have had no issue whatsoever.
I cannot really say much about the gain part as of now since I just started using it. I had been into a gaining more last couple of months and will be going back into cutting mode effective March first. Since my diet will then be very controlled, I will know better about the muscle gain and fat loss and will write another review after I have used the entire 10 lbs pack.
UPDATE: I have been using the product for quite some time now and I must admit the gains were excellent. This is definitely a product that I would recommend to anyone looking for a good whey protein within budget. I have been buying it from Flipkart and Amazon both depending where am I getting a better price at the time of buying and so far I have had no complaint. Product received was genuine and packing was excellent.
