Gold Standard Whey Container

Optimum Nutrition’s Gold Standard 100% Whey supports muscles repair, helping the body prepare properly for what is to come. It’s rapidly digested, meaning it kick starts muscle protein synthesis – muscle growth – soon after intake. It’s also rich in amino acids, particularly branch chain amino acids (BCAAs) which are delivered to muscles fast after exercise. Over 30 years of expertise in engineering protein lies behind the production of our Gold Standard 100% Whey protein. Manufactured by our scientists and nutritionists in our own start-of-the-art facility means that we never compromise on quality, taste or consistency.

Using Gold Standard 100% Whey protein after each workout can help ensure your body is in the best shape possible when it’s time to hit the weights room again.

The powder always mixes well. I’ve used skim milk and almond milk before an its never clomping together. The flavor is good not to much, not to bland.

I switched back to the Gold Standard. I went off the reservation and tried a few different brands but In the end the quality of this product and the how I feel using it are the real deal. The flavor is rich but not overwhelming and I like to mix it with the Oatmeal after my morning runs. It’s easy on my gut and the results are there. Staying lean and not feeling bloated. I just wish bodybuilding.com had this flavor in 2lbs - it’s never listed and an option on the site.

Both flavors I tried were amazing taste wise. I have been drink post workout for about a month now and have noticed a huge improvement in muscle recovery. I had a little bit of an upset stomach when I first started taking this product but it subsided after a week. I definitely recommend this product. I'm extremely satisfied. Thank you Bodybuilding for providing excellent products and service.

The product is decent, it isnt chalky and mixes well but this flavor is terrible! I couldn't choke it down with almond milk, 2%, water. Got my money back and haven't drank it since.

77% protein per scoop which translates to less fillers (divide protein grams by serving size) Taste & mixes good with water or almond milk. Not overly sweet. Price is fair too.

Why I buy from BodyBuilding.com: They always have everything. They have the best customer service. If you wait and buy with promotions, they gave great prices. The mocha cappuccino is the best tasting powder drink(goes beyond just protein powders) ever!

DON'T BUY THIS! After I started taking this protein powder I started experiencing pain and irritation in my heart! I did some research and other people have experienced the same and worse, some started having heart palpitations. One day I got dizzy for no reason after taking it, stayed dizzy for about 10 minutes. I think it might have messed with my blood pressure when this happened. I'm 28 years old, I'm healthy, I exercise, No previous heart problems, and I've never had any issues this severe with a protein powder. I've gone through half the tub and I've stopped taking it for 2 days and my heart pain is gone now. And just to clarify nothing else has changed in my life since taking this protein, no added stress, no new diet, no change to my work outs, All i did was change to this protein from another because of the lower calories. So no external factors affected my heart to cause the pain it was only this protein that changed in my life. I was hoping this would be a great product I could take for a long time, it seemed promising, but I've been severely disappointed. I don't normally take the time to leave reviews but I felt I should warn other people for their own safety, especially people that might already have heart problems. TLDR: This product is straight up dangerous for your heart's health. Avoid and buy a more natural protein powder.

Directions For 100% Gold Standard Whey Protein Powder:

SPOON STIRRED:Gold Standard 100% Whey™ is INSTANTIZED. That means if you forgot your shaker cup or don’t have time to get out the blender, you can just add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to a glass filled with 180-240 ml (6-8 oz) of cold water or your favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon. Stir for about 20 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved.

TIP: Adjust the intensity of your Gold Standard 100% Whey™ by varying the amount of liquid that you use to prepare it. For a bolder flavor with slightly more body and sweetness, mix each scoop with 4-6 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. For a milder tasting, less sweet shake, use 8-10 oz of liquid per scoop.

SHAKER CUP: Bringing a shaker cup with you to the gym is the best way to get a powerful dose of protein immediately after your workout. Just pour in 6-8 oz of your preferred beverage and then add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to your shaker cup. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds.

BLENDER: Add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey™ to a blender filled with 6-8 oz of water, nonfat milk, or your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Then add 1 or 2 ice cubes and blend for an additional 30 seconds


SHAKE UP YOUR SHAKE: By adding fresh or frozen fruits, peanut butter, flaxseed oil, coconut and other high-energy ingredients, you can transform your shake into a delicious high-protein meal.

STACK YOUR SHAKE: You can make Gold Standard 100% Whey™ an even more powerful recovery product by adding supplements like creatine, glutamine, BCAA, and concentrated carbohydrate powders.

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

SUGGESTED USE: Consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day through a combination of high protein foods and protein supplements. For even better results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread evenly throughout the day.

Warnings: Do not exceed the recommended daily dose. This product contains whey derived from dairy and lecithin (to improve mixability) derived from soybeans. For use as a food supplement only. Do not use for weight reduction. Those who are pregnant, nursing or taking medication are advised to consult a physician before use. Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a varied diet. Keep out of reach of children. Store in a cool, dry place.

NOTE: Not for use by those with pre-existing medical conditions or those taking any medications, those under the age of 18 or women that are pregnant or breastfeeding.
