24 G Whey Protein
The 24 grams of protein found in each serving is exactly what your muscles need to repair and rebuild themselves after a workout. This enhances muscle mass and allows you to build more bulk.
5.5 G BCAAs
Branch chain amino acids (BCAAs) promote exercise recovery and help with preventing muscle loss. These are large molecules that the body cannot break down, so they travel directly to the muscles, where they work as energy sources during workouts or as nutrients during long periods between meals. Without using them as fuel, they become waste products instead!
4 G Glutamine
Glutamine is an essential amino acid that reacts with nitrogen from other amino acids and removes excess ammonia from the blood. It is also a precursor to nucleic acids and a neurotransmitter, allowing it to affect brain function.
Muscle Support & Recovery
With 24 grams of protein per serving, this supplement helps with muscle development and growth. It also contains 5.5 g BCAAs, which can help prevent muscle from deteriorating during exercise or weight training sessions.
100% Whey Protein Isolate
This supplement has whey protein isolate, not concentrate or other impure forms that contain lactose and cholesterol in bulk quantities. Whey protein has a low molecular weight and leaves the system quickly, resulting in smoother digestion and greater nutrient absorption for muscles.
No Artificial Growth Hormones
This supplement contains no artificial growth hormones such as recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH) or genetically engineered bovine somatotropin (rBST). It does not contain any of these harmful ingredients, which can adversely affect health.
Gold Standard, 100% Whey, is gluten-free, meaning it does not have any ingestion of gluten peptides that could potentially cause adverse effects on health. This is especially relevant to those trying to lose weight through dieting but still want to maintain muscle mass since eliminating gluten can prevent muscle loss.
Delicious Strawberry Flavour
The strawberry flavour makes this supplement very good for putting in smoothies, drinking after workouts, or eating later on in the day as a tasty snack. Many whey protein supplements have neutral flavours that are not especially desirable when consumed alone.
Contains Milk and Soy Ingredients
Please note that this supplement contains milk and soy ingredients and is not appropriate for those with dairy or soy products allergies. If you are looking for a pure supplement without these allergens, check out Optimum Nutrition's "Gold Standard 100% Egg Protein" or "Gold Standard Plant-Based Protein."

Suggested use: Mix one scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey in 4-6 oz of cold water, skim milk, or your beverage of choice. Additional servings can be taken throughout the day to meet your protein requirements.
Caution: This product is made without milk ingredients but manufactured on equipment shared with milk ingredients. This means it could potentially contain traces of milk components. Also, if you are lactose intolerant or have casein allergies, you should consult your doctor before buying or consuming this product.
Some people may experience bloating, gas, upset stomach, constipation, or diarrhea when taking this supplement. To avoid these symptoms, make sure to use Gold Standard 100% Whey gradually over time by starting with a half scoop mixed with water each day, then increasing to one scoop per day for several days before adding another half scoop. Then continue on that pattern until you are at your desired level of intake. It is recommended to slowly take the powder in increasing amounts until your system adjusts to it. If this doesn't fix the problem, you should stop taking Gold Standard 100% Whey and consult a health care professional if needed.
