Finding a delicious protein shake is like searching for the Holy Grail. If you find it, it promises magical weight loss powers. But while the search goes on, you question if such a thing even exists.
BeautyWhey promises to end your search for an effective and tasty protein shake. BeautyWhey comes in six flavors, each serving packed with 15 grams of protein.
I researched BeautyWhey further to uncover if it meets consumer expectations. Here’s what I found out.
One aspect that sets BeautyWhey apart from other protein shakes is its variety of flavors. The six BeautyWhey flavors are:
• Bombshell Banana
• Hawt Chocolate
• Luscious Lemon Crème
• Sexy Strawberry
• Vixen Vanilla
With all these flavors, most consumers can probably find one that appeals to their taste. I expected online reviews of BeautyWhey to comment on which flavors are best. Unfortunately, I couldn’t locate any reviews of BeautyWhey, so I’m not sure if any of these flavors actually taste great.
The ingredients in BeautyWhey are one way to examine its effectiveness as a protein shake. BeautyWhey uses three formulas to create lean muscle tone, enhanced flavor, and time-released protein.
Lean Muscle Tone Matrix
One serving of BeautyWhey contains 359 mg of creatine monohydrate. This form of creatine increases the body’s available ATP. Muscles use ATP for energy, so creatine should provide muscles with more stamina and explosive power.
BeautyWhey also has 325 mg of taurine. This organic compound is a major component of skeletal muscle. Adding it to the diet may encourage muscle growth, but this effect is unproven.
Nu Cream Powder
When compressed, sunflower seeds excrete oil that is low in saturated fat. Sunflower oil also has vitamin E, making it healthier than canola or vegetable oil. BeautyWhey uses sunflower oil mostly to enhance flavor.
Sodium caseinate is a purified form of the milk protein casein. Sodium caseinate works as an emulsifier, so it likely contributes to the texture of a BeautyWhey protein shake.
Mono- and Diglycerides
These fatty-acid molecules are added to foods to create a smooth, thick consistency. Generally, such low percentages are added to foods that mono- and diglycerides are not included in the nutrition facts. Some health conscious consumers avoid them because of their similarity to hydrogenated oils. 
Dipotassium phosphate is a food additive that prevents coagulation. The FDA classifies this ingredient as GRAS, or generally recognized as safe.
Tocopherol is a more specific name for vitamin E. Vitamin E has many health benefits, but most people get adequate amounts from their regular diets.
Micellar casein is another form of the protein casein. Micellar casein can take seven or more hours to digest, meaning it slowly releases protein to the bloodstream. This slow release may help micellar casein suppress appetite.
Whey Protein Isolate
In contrast to micellar casein, whey protein isolate digests fast. The protein in this form of whey is isolated from almost all other ingredients, making it one of the purest protein sources.
BeautyWhey definitely has ingredients of a basic protein shake. BeautyWhey’s combination of slow and fast-acting proteins along with the creatine and taurine mean it likely helps with building lean muscle, although these benefits probably vary from person to person. Similarly, the proteins could suppress appetite.
On the negative side, I don’t see any ingredients that will induce major weight loss. BeautyWhey seems more like a toning shake for already fit exercisers, not a diet drink for people wanting to shed pounds. Plus, since several of the ingredients are fatty-acid fillers, I’m not convinced BeautyWhey is healthy for long-term use.
A single serving of BeautyWhey needs only one scoop of powder and 6 ounces of cold water, milk, or juice. The powder should dissolve easily in the liquid with only a few stirs of a spoon.
One serving of BeautyWhey should be taken at the beginning of the day, usually before breakfast. Another serving can be taken after working out or just before bedtime. BeautyWhey’s website recommends combining the morning shake with a fat burner.
I found only one price for BeautyWhey: $39.99 per jug. BeautyFit.com offers this price, which is listed as a $10-discount off the regular price. I couldn’t find any other retailers selling BeautyWhey, so it seems that this product must be purchased through this website.
I also couldn’t find how many servings one jug of BeautyWhey makes. It’s hard to determine the worth of a protein shake without knowing the price per serving or how long a jar will last.
Despite its many flavor options, BeautyWhey fails to impress me as a protein shake. None of its ingredients seem either highly effective or state-of-the-art. And BeautyWhey has too many fillers and not enough consumer reviews to pass my product review test.
Thus, BeautyWhey seems like a run-of-the-mill protein shake that happens to come in lots of flavors. I suggest looking for a more highly regarded protein shake than BeautyWhey.
