"... Flavor rich chocolate, doesnt mix well in a shaker, doesn't taste good, leaves me a llic taste all day long. I've used Dymatize elite whey in the past, chocolate flavor as well and the taste was better, although I also noticed the mixing problem"

"... Ive been using this protein for a month just ran out i was comparing the product to syntha-6 i believe elite 12 is a better buy because the price is cheaper on massnutrition.com but syntha-6 is more of a fat burning lean muscle building while elite 12 disolves longer because of the lyphid compound which slows digestion rate at has more calories which is good for those of us who are in decent shape and dont want to lose weight. I allready have been loosing weight doing the 60 day insanity program which is an extreme fat loss lean muscle building workout, i was 6 foot tall 199 size 34 waist before, now im 191 a little leaner not much fat, so if you want to keep that muscle mass elite 12 is better, sytha-6 ist bad if you want to burn some fat wile getting leaner muscles. Later guys, Derek"

"... I wanted to know how many times a day do you have to take elite 12? also do you take the protein shake before the workout or after the workout?"

Hi Luis, great question. As much as you can afford, but ideally 2-3 times per day. The most important serving is right after your workout, then the other two spread throughout the day between your meals. You can also take a serving right before bed, as elite-12 is time released and will feed your muscles all night while you sleep and rest.

I'm currently under training and I'm enjoying the taste. But when I asked my gym trainor, how many times could I take Whey Protein? And he replied: "Before and After Workout", but I'm afraid, I will have an overdose of taking it. Will that be okay?

"... this alot cheaper than other time released protien suppliments. if i had to drop anything thats in it, would be the soy. other than that its about 20dollars cheaper than Pro5, which is also a great protein suppliment but just go through so much of it that i need to save where i can. for you peps that think that whey protein is all you need think again. besides eating the right food, incorperate this into your diet 3-4 times a day and you will notice a change in your physique in a month!"

"... ok so i started off using dymatize elite whey isolate, as it was a high quality protein. i went back to the vitamin shoppe after i went thru about 5 tubs of it, looking for something more helpful. the guy said for me, being 15 years old, dissolved too quick to see results and should get an extended release protein and said dymatize 12 hour was the best value and quality. i was a little hesitant at first, becuase i bought a tub of the fudge brownie flavor and i had one serving of it and dumped the rest in the toilet. taste/texture was terrible. the guy also said vanilla was bad. so hoping the rich chocolate would be better i bought i for 36$ and was REALLY impressed. tastes amazing, almost exactly like the dymatize elite isolate. great results, great buy."

"... I have been taking Elite 12 chocolate and love the taste, It mixes well with a small hand blender, and the price at the vitaim shoppe was great, 4.433 lbs-(61 servings) for $36.00 I have noticed good strength gains and gains in size. I will continue to use elite 12 hour protein in the future"

"... hi, im 19 years old and i just bought this product. I didnt like so much the taste. i was on cytogainer before this and taste was amazing. anyways, i currently play football, and im taking this to get bigger in general words. i practice every day except sundays, and saturdays we play. i excercise about 3 hour every day, 2 hours of practice and 1 hour of gym, i would like to know how am i supposed to take this, i mean, when and how much... any suggestions? also, i would like to know what kind of food should i be eating for optimal results? thanks..."

i would take this AFTER the workout. take an easier digesting protein BEFORE your workout like whey isolate instead of this timed release protein.

response by mikey

... the answer to your question would be to take isolate in the morning when you first wake up and after your workout. because of it being a faster burning protein. before your workout eat a normal meal (i suggest 45mins to 1.5hours) ahead of your workout so you dont get a stomach ache. you want to use dymatize 12 through out the day (3-4times) for your protein needs. and at night to keep your body turning catabolic on you. 1grm of protein per lb of bodyweight, do the math from there.

for food compsumption, whole grains and sweetpotatoes. lean meats, chicken, turkey, tuna, bison, ostrich...

"... Just Started taking this product 2 days ago and so far feels good. What got my attention was the price compared to my previous one. The taste and smell is great(using chocolate). When i finish the tub I'll post another comment with the results that I get."

"... I agree that a time-release protein is essential. The taste and smell are not great. However I am looking for a protein to assist with my fitness goals and not for a delicious drink. This does do the job. I will likely buy a different brand in the future to see if there is anything with a better taste."

"... i would love to know what flavor tastes best. i just got my 4lb tub of vanilla. tastes like absolute sh*t and smells it too. (IMO) but obviously being that its a 12 hr protein, i can tough it out lol im not worried about results, i know this will deliver, usually what tastes bad works good. "

"... A good product at a good price.It works great for me.Even though nutrition is more important than taste I think it tastes great.The sustained release protein is vital."

"... although good quality, and taste. doesn't mix well. in a blender its fine but by hand, not at all. This doesnt mean its not good. it is. just dont expect to mix with a spoon in a cup"

"... DELICOUS! Always drank dymatize shakes, for over a decade at least. Find them to be the most effective at holding and adding more size without getting fat or bloated. I've been using the elite-12 now for a few weeks and really have noticed the difference. Gains have improved as I have been stuck on a plateau for some time now."

"... Very good tasting flavor selection for elite 12, one of the better proteins out there for me."
