Does anyone use Unico’s Apollo pure Protein Powder? I’ve been searching through previous posts & I haven’t seen that brand mentioned. The reviews are great but it’s a little pricey. The flavors sound phenomenal though! 🤩

I always avoid any powders or drinks that are sweetened with Acesulfame Potassium (Ace-K) or Sucralose. Although both dont act to increase blood glucose, they do act at the pancreatic level to increase insulin.

So measuring blood glucose will see no apparent increases, but insulin levs will be elevated.

we were told to stick to whey Protein isolate early out because it's the most easily absorbed, and many of us needed the shakes to meet our protein goals (I sometimes use protein blends now that I'm in maintenance, since I get most/all of my protein from my food). Anyway, Apollo is a blend - so if you were told to have whey protein isolate, this won't work for you - or at least while you're early out.

Thank you both! I haven’t been told a particular Protein to use but from what I’ve been reading around here I’ll do the whey protein isolate in the beginning. Maybe farther down the road I’ll try Apollo’s sample pack for curiosity’s sake! Thanks again, y’all!!
