This whey protein powder is packed with whey protein isolates, which are the purest form of whey. This primary ingredient, along with premium ultra-filtered whey protein concentrate (WPC), helps provide 24 grams of muscle-building protein in every serving of 31 grams. That comes to 77% protein by weight. This unique combination makes Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard popular amongst active adults. The powder is a rich source of amino acids, which helps in muscle recovery. The protein also digests quickly, and does not contain unnecessary elements like lactose, fat, and cholesterol. More than 5 grams per serving constitutes of the Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs), namely Valine, lsoleucine, and Leucine. A little over 4 grams per serving is made up of Glutamine and Glutamic Acid. In order to enhance the action of the proteins, Hydrowhey has been added to the product. This is a strategically hydrolysed and low molecular weight whey. To boost utilisation, digestive enzymes like Aminogen and Lactase have also been incorporated into the powder. Additionally, whey protein microfractions like Immunoglobulin G, Alpha-lactalbumin, Beta-lactoglobulin, Lactoferrin, and others have also been added. These help in growing muscles. The jar measures 15.2 x 15.2 x 25.7 cm, and contains 938.9 grams of powder. This is a unisex product, so both men and women can consume it.
Directions For Use
You can have this powder in the morning, before or after exercise, and after weight training. You should consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight, along with protein supplements and high protein foods. For best results, spread out the protein intake evenly throughout the day. If you have a shaker cup, then add one rounded scoop of whey to 6-8 oz of your preferred beverage. Cover, shake, and drink. You can also use a blender to make whey protein smoothies. Fill 6-8 oz of water, nonfat milk, or your favorite beverage into the blender, add one scoop of whey powder, and blend. To make life easy for you, the powder has been instantised. This means you won't need a shaker or a blender. Simply use a spoon to stir the powder into a liquid, and you are done. Feel free to add the whey protein into your oatmeal or muffins or yogurt or cookies. You'll get delicious strawberry flavoured food items.
