Step 1

Schedule an appointment with your doctor before taking supplements, particularly if you have kidney or liver disease. If your doctor approves, purchase a 2.47 pound bottle of Muscle Milk powder in your flavor of preference.

Step 2

Mix two scoops of Muscle Milk in 10 to 12 ounces of water, states CytoSport.com. Stir the mixture or shake well. You can take Muscle Milk one to three times per day, depending on your specific nutritional requirements. You could also cut the water amount in half and add skim milk, almond milk, juice or yogurt to make a creamier shake.

Step 3

Take Muscle Milk before a workout, after a workout or at bedtime. If your stomach becomes upset from taking Muscle Milk, reduce the dose or take it with food. Immediately stop taking Muscle Milk if you notice symptoms of abdominal discomfort, abnormal stools or abnormal urine. Alert your doctor.

Tip

For more flavor and a smoothie type of shake, add frozen berries, frozen fruit, flaxseeds or leafy greens to your shake.
