What is Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey?

Whey protein is popular amongst athletes and fitness enthusiasts of all levels. It has a rapid absorption rate and high biological value (BV), which makes it ideal for post-training consumption. Gold Standard Whey is a reassuringly sought after; it offers a convenient way to boost your protein intake, and help you achieve your fitness goals.

Optimum Nutrition brought us the ‘Gold Standard’ of whey protein formula; this global best-seller has become a marker against which all other brands are measured. This superb quality protein powder can be enjoyed around your training sessions, or at any other time of day. It’s a truly steadfast product!

What makes its formula special?

• Each scoop of Gold Standard whey delivers over 24g of premium whey protein
• Rich in whey protein isolate, offering a purity level of around 90%
• Contains naturally occurring branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), which are integral to muscle protein synthesis
• Offers a concentrated level of leucine – the ‘king’ of the BCAAs
• Fortified with enzymes to assist digestive function, including lactase (to aid the assimilation of lactose)
• Perfect for post-workout consumption, but can be consumed at any time of the day
• Available in a range of delicious flavours to suit every taste!
• Low in sugar/carbohydrates and fat
• Effortless, ‘instantised’ mixing and zero clumping

How can Gold Standard Whey help me reach my goals?

Intense exercise causes the breakdown of muscle tissue; this is completely normal, and actually, a key aspect of your progress. Whey protein is fast-acting, which initiates the recovery process, supporting the repair and growth of damaged muscle fibres. It supplies all essential amino acids (including the BCAAs) – sometimes referred to as the ‘building blocks’ of protein, which assist muscle development.

Gold Standard is rich in whey isolate, said to be the purest fraction of whey protein there is. This creates a purity level of around 90% – a figure that’s unrivalled in the industry!

Who is Gold Standard Whey suitable for?

• Bodybuilders looking to increase muscle mass, but wanting to avoid excess fat gain
• Those who participate in endurance sports
• Anyone who cares about their health and fitness, whatever their activity of choice

- Great!!! Best Protein Out.
James, Stafford 14/05/2011
Firs of all who ever says they dont get results, they dont train, they think just taking it will help them. this stuff is great and if your train hard it will show.
- Great Stuff!
Chris, Flint, Flintshire 04/05/2014
bought this the other day because of the reviews left on this site and because it seems to be described as 'amazing' on every supplement site ive been on. considering i dont love the taste of any protein shake with water this one isnt bad. Plus, its £50 for the small tub on Holland and Barrett and i bought it on here for £23! WORTH IT
- The Best There Is!
Jason, Sunderland 02/04/2014
Firstly this is a great product at a great price. I can't believe how easily it mixes compared to all the other brands I've tried over the years, USN being the most recent. This product is perfect for those with a slow digestive system, or find it hard to cram in a shake in between meals like myself. The only negatives I can find (if it is one), is that because it mixes so easily, I'm tempted to add more than the suggested amount and a 908g tub won't last as long. Also the ingredients list salt which annoys me and really can't understand why it's necessary. Apart from these minor flaws, I'm very happy with the product and price, and will certainly be ordering more in the near future!

Simply add one rounded scoop (30.4g) to 180-240 ml of cold water and blend, shake or stir until powder is completely dissolved. You can adjust flavour by using more or less water.

Gold Standard 100% Whey can be used for more than just protein shakes. Try mixing with a scoop into oatmeal, yoghurt, or the milk that you pour over your morning breakfast cereal. Better yet, increase the protein content of your muffins, cookies, brownies etc by adding a scoop or two to your baked goods recipes.

Suggested Use: Consume enough protein to meet your daily protein requirements through a combination of high protein foods and protein supplements. For the best results consume your daily protein over several small meals spread evenly throughout the day.

Caution: Keep out of reach of children. Do not exceed recommended daily intake.
Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.

If pregnant or lactating consult your doctor before use.
