Protein Powders Reviews | The Best Protein Shakes of 2020

Rule One Protein Powder Review

#1 Rule One Protein Powder

RATING: 5.0 Rule One Protein Powders are in our opinion among the best in the industry. From the same people who founded Optimum Nutrition and created the legendary Whey Gold Standard, Rule One uses the highest quality isolate and hydrolyzed isolate protein blend as well as added BCAAs and a big dose of Glutamine. Read this Rule One protein review before buying any other protein powder. READ THE REVIEW


Aliiance Labz iso whey protein powder

#2: Alliance Labz Iso Whey

RATING: 4.3 Alliance Labz Iso Whey took a top spot as one of our best protein powders for several reasons, most important of which is it’s ultra pure 100% whey protein isolate blend.

On top of having an extremely pure blend, they go above and beyond by providing 27 grams per serving, which is more than the industry average…

Plus, with more than 6 grams of naturally occurring branched chain amino acids, what’s not to like here? It’s low calorie and low sodium, and it contains virtually no fat, sugar, or carbs…home run! READ THE REVIEW.

ISO HD Protein Powder Review

#3 ISO HD Protein Powder

RATING: 4.0. ISO HD Protein Powder is top-rated for many reasons but the biggest is that it’s PURE. BPI Sports, a leader in sports nutrition, has created a real winner for anyone looking for a top-shelf protein supplement. You won’t find any concentrate in this product, just whey isolate and hyrdolysates. Discover why we put ISO HD on top. READ THE REVIEW

Whey Gold Standard Product Review

#4 ON Whey Gold Standard Protein Powder

#5 Muscle Tech Phase 8 Protein Powder

Combat Powder Review

#6 Muscle Pharm Combat Protein Powder 

RATING: 3.5. Combat Powder by Muscle Pharm is a high-quality, good-tasting protein powder by one of the leaders in sports nutrition supplements. We go in-depth in our Combat Powder review and discuss the ingredients, the types of protein, review the effectiveness of the product and talk about the pros and cons. READ THE REVIEW

Rule One Whey Protein Blend Review

#7 Rule One Whey Blend

RATING: 3.5. Rule One Whey Blend is another R1 product that made it in our top 10 protein powders list. While it isn’t as pure or as high quality as the original Rule One Protein, it still in our opinion makes for one of the best protein shakes out there. The point of creating this powder was essentially to make a less expensive version of their original protein powder. READ THE REVIEW

Myotein Protein Powder Review

#8 Myotein Protein Powder

RATING: 3.2. Mytoein protein powder review… We reveal the overall quality of ingredients in value in this popular protein powder made by XPI. It has some good qualities about it and some not-so-good characteristics. You’ll definitely want to read this review before buying MyoteinREAD THE REVIEW

Isopure Zero Carb Review

#9 Isopure Zero Carb Protein Powder

RATING: 3.2. Isopure Zero Carb by Nature’s Best is a popular protein powder. This review focuses on why it is popular and if it stacks up against the others on our list. As the name suggests, Isopure is unique because you are ingesting zero carbs, but is this the right way to go? READ THE REVIEW

COR Performance Whey Protein Powder Review

#10 COR Performance Whey Protein Powder

RATING: 3.0. This COR Performance Whey protein powder review looks at a very popular protein powder made by a well-established sports nutrition company called Cellucor. This product would have been ranked much higher had it contained added branch chain amino acids (BCAA’s). Too bad really… READ THE REVIEW

Complete Whey Protein Powder

#11 CytoSport Complete Whey

RATING: 3.0. Complete Whey is a protein powder from the makers of the uber-popular Muscle Milk. Though Complete Whey is a decent product, it does have some limitations. Just because the manufacturer is popular does not necessarily mean it’s the best protein powder. Read this Complete Whey review before buying. READ THE REVIEW

Syntha 6 Protein Powder

#12 Syntha 6 Protein Powder

RATING: 2.8. Syntha 6 is a protein powder made by a sports nutrition giant called BSN. Though on the surface this powder looks phenomenal because it’s loaded with many different forms of protein (which is actually not a good thing) and lots of it, the rest of the label needs to be very carefully examined before reaching a conclusion about the product. Read this Syntha 6 review before buying. READ THE REVIEW

ISO-100 Protein Powder

#13 ISO-100 Protein Powder

RATING: 2.8. ISO-100 is an overall terrific product made by a company called Dymatize. This ISO-100 protein powder review looks at the ingredients and overall effectiveness of the product.  If it were not for one small issue, this product would have easily been in our top three protein powders. Find out what caused this powder to drop in rankings… READ THE REVIEW
