Six Star Whey Protein Plus Review
Six Star Whey Protein Plus is supposed to be a powerful, premium formula for athletes, bodybuilders, and trainers.
Six Star Whey Protein Plus is different than most protein powders because, besides using protein, it has creatine monohydrate and branched-chained amino acids. Together, all these ingredients are supposed to enhance your ability to build muscle, improve your workouts, and speed up recovery.
Will Six Star Whey Protein Plus be effective? How does it compare to Myotein and other high-quality protein powders? Is it a good value?
It contains two higher-quality whey proteins (whey protein concentrate and whey protein isolate); which is typical for protein powders, but some top-rated products like Myotein have more than 5 high-quality proteins. The protein in Six Star Whey Protein Plus has been clinically tested to provide more strength and muscle growth than lower quality proteins.
This product also contains branched-chained amino acids like valine, leucine, and isoleucine to quickly initiate protein synthesis. These fast-acting ingredients enable Protein Plus to start working soon after you take it.
Six Star Whey Protein Plus also boasts some creatine monohydrate to bump up levels of ATP. ATP allows muscles to lift harder and more vigorously thus breaking down and tearing more tissue.
This means more protein synthesis can be triggered and more protein from your supplement can be used to regenerate muscles. L-Glutamine is also included to preserve the muscles you add on.

Six Star Whey Protein Plus has a similar ingredient profile to Myotein and other top protein powders. However, Six Star Whey Protein Plus is higher in calories, carbs, and protein.
Taste & Flavors
Six Star Whey Protein Plus comes in three flavors: Strawberry Cream Smoothie, Triple Chocolate, and Vanilla Cream. Users give the Triple Chocolate flavor a rating of 8.4 out of 10.
This product mixes well for most people, but several users did have problems with mixing and taste. I recommend putting 6-8 ounces water or milk into a blender and then adding the powder. Users say that is mixes and tastes best with milk or in smoothies.
How to Use It
I recommend taking 2 scoops (2 servings) of Six Star Whey Protein Plus a day. This will give you a little more than 100% of your Daily Value of protein. This product mixes best in milk or water, but you could add it to juice too. The best time to take it is in the morning, or before or after a workout.
Sometimes, Myotein and other protein powders are used as meal replacement shakes by people who want to lose weight. Six Star Whey Protein Plus may not be the best product for this because it contains creatine. Also, the manufacturer recommends taking it between meals and not as a meal replacement.
Will Six Star Whey Protein Plus Be Effective?
With 30 grams of protein per serving, Six Star Whey Protein Plus definitely has a powerful dose, but more is not always better. Your body can only process so much protein at once, and if you give it more than it can handle, the excess will get wasted.
Six Star Whey Protein Plus doesn’t have 50 grams of protein per serving, like Zero Carb Isopure does; but it has a little more than the leading protein powder Myotein (26 grams). So, Six Star Whey Protein Plus should be effective, but it may have a little more protein than is necessary in each serving.
Does Six Star Whey Protein Plus Cause Side Effects?
Six Star Whey Protein Plus is a safe protein powder. It doesn’t have any stimulants or harmful ingredients. However, it does have creatine monohydrate, which is known for sometimes causing bloating and stomach upset. The large dose of protein in Six Star Whey Protein Plus might also cause these side effects.
Where to Buy
Six Star Whey Protein Plus can be purchased in-stores or online from Walmart, GNC, Walgreens, and Bodybuilding.com; to name a few popular options. This product comes in one size (2 lbs). The lowest price I could find is $19.99 from Bodybuilding.com.
If you buy it on www.sixstarpronutrition.com, it costs $24.99. This site doesn’t seem to offer a money back guarantee and none of the other retailers I found did either. So, I suggest buying Six Star Whey Protein Plus from whichever retailer will give you the lowest price.
Six Star Whey Protein Plus uses a large amount of high-quality protein. And the added creatine and BCAAs make it a great choice for athletes and bodybuilders. It’s very cheap compared to other protein powders; which is good, but it puzzles me.
Myotein has 26 grams of high-quality protein in every serving and a 2.55 lb. container costs around $50 to $60. These prices are actually very typical of high-quality protein powders. Why is Six Star Whey Protein Plus so cheap? My guess is that it uses more lower-quality protein (whey protein concentrate) than higher-quality protein (whey protein isolate).
If you want a good, cheap protein powder, Six Star Whey Protein Plus would be a good choice. But if you want to look at higher-quality options, I recommend Myotein. For more information, visit www.Myotein.com.
