MHP Macrobolic MRP Review
Promising to be the “perfect meal replacement for a muscular, lean, and fit body”, MHP’s Macrobolic MRP is a shake for people interested in cutting calories and building muscle.
Despite the fact that they remain an easy way to shave excess calories, many meal replacement shakes have formulas that fail to impress.
Is there anything unique to Macrobolic MRP that sets it apart from the masses?
The Macrobolic MRP Formula
Along with essential vitamins and minerals, Macrobolic MRP uses an interesting 45/35/20 ratio of macronutrients. These are supposed to work together to develop muscle, burn fat, and enhance performance.
45% Carbs – Slow Carb Blend is a unique mix of low glycemic carbohydrates made from oats, oat fiber, and barley. These ingredients work together to boost energy and endurance while maintaining healthy blood sugar levels.
By providing the body with a steady supply of glucose for energy, this blend promotes greater athletic performance and fat burn.
35% Protein – Probolic Protein Blend is made of soy protein and whey concentrate. These ingredients work together to provide the body with various amino acids crucial to building and maintaining muscle tissue.
These amino acids are released at various rates (fast-medium-slow) which ensure the muscles have the nutrition they need at any time.
20% Fats – EFA with Flax and CLA Blend is a blend that focuses on decreasing body fat and promoting lean body mass. It does this by using healthy essential fatty acids (EFA) that support the body in various ways. Omega-3 EFAs ensure organs function properly and deliver oxygen to muscles and other tissues. While omega-5 EFAs keep skin healthy and fight cancer cell growth.
This blend also uses medium chain triglycerides (MCT) which are a great source of energy and promotes overall muscle health while burning fat.
How Do You Use It?
According to the official instructions:
Combine the contents of one packet with 10-12 oz. of cold water and thoroughly mix in a shaker.
For a thick consistency, mix in a blender with ice.
Use 2 to 3 servings daily as part of a Macrobolic Nutrition program in order to achieve better balanced nutrition for optimal performance.
Are There Possible Side Effects?
While Macrobolic MRP provides many healthy nutrients to the body, too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. For example, too many amino acids can damage kidney function, create a negative nitrogen balance in the body, and ultimately act as toxins in the body damaging cells.
Also, while the body needs essential fatty acids, too many EFAs can cause diarrhea, upset stomach, and gas.
Drinking plenty of water can help lessen the possibility of these side effects and dilute the intensity of any occurring side effects.
User reviews for Macrobolic MRP are very positive. On BodyBuilding.com, Macrobolic MRP currently enjoys a high score of 9.4 out of 10 from 20 users. Here is a sample of what users are saying about Macrobolic MRP:

• BodyBuilding.com: $32.93 for one box (20 packets)
• Amazon.com:$29.99 for one box
• Vitacost.com: $31.79 for one box
MHP offers a limited money-back guarantee on products bought from its online store. However, MHP’s website does not list Macrobolic MRP anywhere, strongly implying that MHP has discontinued the product.
Macrobolic MRP looks like an average meal replacement drink. We’re impressed that Macrobolic MRP’s formula is packed with essential macronutrients. The product also enjoys great user reviews and even appears to taste good.
On the downside, Macrobolic MRP isn’t backed by a very good guarantee and is discontinued. Plus, a formula that is 20% fat is definitely not the leanest way to cut down on calories.
Consequently, Macrobolic MRP is probably not the best meal replacement for those interested in building muscle and losing weight.
