100% Whey Gold Standard is a lean protein blend from Optimum Nutrition.
It uses a blend of whey protein isolate,whey protein concentrate and whey peptides to produce a product that is high protein,low carbohydrate and low fat.
Each scoop packs 24g protein,5.5g BCAA’s and over 4g of glutamine for a very versatile protein powder.
Whey protein is naturally high in amino acids, in particular leucine. This is a key amino acid for triggering protein synthesis.
Whey is also very similar to human tissue making it very easy for us to utilise.
This mixes with ease,tastes fantastic and offers excellent value for money. With 4 sizes and 17 flavours to choose from there is something for everyone.
Optimum also went the extra mile adding digestive enzymes to every scoop to ensure it breaks down and absorbs without any upset stomachs.
Whole food is still the king when it comes to nutrient intake. That being said there are times throughout the day a faster digesting source can be of benefit. First thing in the morning and post-workout are times when protein intake is very important. Demand is very high and a fast acting protein source is required. Whey protein is ideal at this time. High in amino acids and easily digested this speeds up the recovery process.
