Hey Everyone! Thanks for tuning in to my supplement review on Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard protein. Protein is a key component in repairing and building muscle. If your diet lacks protein you’re probably not getting the most out of your workouts. The good news is there are tons of supplements out there to help you increase protein intake.
What To Look For When Buying A Supplement
- Main ingredient
- Side effects
The main ingredient of this product is Whey Protein Isolate (24 grams per serving).
Whey Protein Isolate Benefits
- Muscle growth
- Lose fat
- Improved strength
- Improved recovery
Optimum Nutrition also packs 4 grams of Glutamine and 5 grams of Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s) into this protein. Glutamine and BCAA’s have been shown to greatly improve the break down and absorption of protein into muscle tissue. This is crucial in terms of effectiveness because after a workout your body needs these fast-acting nutrients to repair and build muscle. Lets talk about the taste, hands down Extreme Chocolate Milk and Vanilla Ice Cream are my favorite flavors. Another great thing about this protein their large variety of flavors. Choose your flavor wisely though because servings per container may vary. A 74 serving container will cost about $0.72 per serving which is a great value. In regards to side effects, I have not experienced or read about any negative side effects.
