Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey Chocolate Mint 5 lb
Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey is the legend of all proteins. It's about as basic and simple as it gets, but that doesn't make it any less effective or impressive. That's because this well-rounded blend of whey protein concentrate, isolate, and hydrolysate contains a fast-acting mixture of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) along with glutamine peptides to protect against muscle breakdown after intense training or cardio exercise.
Gold Standard also has digestive enzymes built in to enhance digestion and maximize assimilation of nutrients, making it ideal for pre/post-workout use and for maximizing overall results from your training diet.

24 G Whey Protein
Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey contains the optimal combination of high-quality whey protein fractions: Beta-lactoglobulin, Alpha-lactalbumin and Immunoglobulin. It has high concentrations of BCAA's that promote lean muscle growth and aid in recovery from exercise.
5.5 G BCAAs
Supplementing with 5.5g Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) may increase strength during training sessions and decrease the degradation of proteins in your body. The result is a reduction in the time it takes for muscles to recover after a workout!
4 G Glutamine & Glutamic Acid
Glutamine helps speed up recovery by preventing muscle breakdown while new tissue. Research has shown that glutamine is depleted during exercise. Supplementation with 4g of L-glutamine, the most abundant amino acid in muscle cells, has been shown to maximize performance and improve resistance to infection.
Depending on the flavour of Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey you choose, there are 3-4g carbohydrates per serving. This will help meet your daily carbohydrate needs and maximize muscle growth without adding unneeded body fat.
Many protein supplements contain high amounts of sugar and unnecessary fillers, which contribute to unwanted calories consumed by the user. Optimum Nutrition's low-carb formula helps support a lean physique and promotes healthy blood sugar levels.
Optimum Nutrition uses only minimal fat in our products because it does not contribute significantly to taste or performance but can add needless calories if over-used.
Some individuals are sensitive to gluten. Rest assured that Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey is gluten-free and perfect for your nutritional needs if this is you.
Supports Muscle Growth & Promotes Recovery
Whey protein is a complete protein that contains all the essential amino acids required by the body for muscle growth and recovery. It has high concentrations of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) and promotes optimal muscle growth and healing by enhancing energy production within the muscle.
When whey is cold processed and crosses filtered, it is predigested, making its nutrients more available to the body. This superior absorption promotes health, lean muscle growth and sustained energy throughout the day.
Promotes Healthy Brain Function
Optimum Nutrition's 100% Whey Protein Gold Standard is low fat, low carb and low sugar food with no cholesterol or lactose. Therefore, it can help you maintain good health without restricting your diet excessively. It may be especially beneficial for people who need to avoid excess saturated fats in their diet but want to maintain lean muscle mass.
Promote Healthy Blood Sugar Levels
Optimum Nutrition's 100% Whey Protein Gold Standard helps promote healthy blood sugar levels already within the normal range because it provides a steady supply of amino acids needed for energy production. This allows the body better regulate blood sugar and avoid insulin spikes that may be associated with poor food choices or fluctuating workout intensity. It is also beneficial in supporting regular exercise performance by prolonging the time to fatigue during your workouts.
