Why buy Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey 4.5kg?

Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein 2.2kg Supplement is one of the world's best-selling whey protein. And has been voted Supplement of the Year and Protein Powder of the Year, again in the annual BodyBuilding.com Supplement Awards!


Their 100% Whey Protein contains Whey Isolates (WPI) with a rated 90% pure protein - One of the purest and most expensive form of whey protein that exists.


As a primary protein source, the Optimum Nutrition whey protein isolates squeeze an amazing 24 grams of the purest protein available into each serving. Whey protein is essential to the growth and repair of muscles, without the fat, cholesterol and lactose that is not necessarily required.


During workouts muscle is broken and afterwards, during the recovery period your body uses protein to repair the muscle fibres.


Each tasty serving of Gold Standard 100% Whey also contains 5.5g branched chain amino acids and only 1g of fat, sugar and 3g of carbs. Simply mix one rounded scoop with 180-240ml of your favourite beverage.


Whey protein is essential for anyone doing intense training. It is number one when you’re looking to purchase a supplement.


Optimum Nutrition are renowned for their products, especially their gold standard whey. It is delicious tasting and the nutritionals and ingredients are above all.


This can be taken though the day because per serving you only get 120 calories and 1.4g of that is sugar which means you can enjoy it day and night.


The best time to take protein is after the gym and when you wake up. It contains whey protein isolate and whey protein concentrate and hydrolysed whey making it a blend of protein.


A blend of protein is great for during the day as when you take some in a morning it will help drip feed your body though the day and keep your body elevated on amino acids. These help with preventing our muscles from being broken down often known as catabolic state.


It can be mixed easily and is a very smooth protein supplement. It tastes amazing too. It comes in some of the best flavours and you have a whole lot to choose from.


Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey contains 4g of glutamine per serving. Glutamine is a build block of protein. It is produced in our muscles and distributed by blood to the organs that require it.


If you’re looking for a supplement to aid your goals, pick this. You won’t be disappointed.

“ My No.1 choice, ON whey is effective, tastes great and for value, it can't be beaten. Although most of their flavours are great, especially the chocolate, watch out for the strawberry flavour though, it isn't as 'delicious' as the name suggests. ”

Eh?


He is asking for 2 bags lol How many servings please? (in 10lb bag)
Hi You get about 45 servings out of a 10lb bag. Kind regards Danny


I see Danny asked above how many servings you get in a 10lb bag, 45 is that it surely cant be correct, considering 1 scoop is 29gramms. In a 5lb you get 80 servings
Hi Callum Would get 180 scoops so that is 90 servings per bag.


Hi i am very slim, i work high intensity physical for around 10 hours per day, i have a poor appetite and so, find it very difficult to gain weight. I need something thats really practical to use when on a building site -as cant use blenders etc. can you please recommend something for me to gain weight. I dont mind gaining a bit of fat - i could do with some! thanks
HI Pete You need to be looking at a weight gainer. I would go for phd pharma gain. Kind regards Danny


Is this product suitable for vegetarians? Thanks Jay
yes, all flavours apart from strawberry are suitable for vegetarians.


Is this product actually in the old packaging, or is it an old photo? If so, is the product the same in the different types of packaging? Thanks, Stephen

Honestly, which flavour is the nicest?
all depends on your taste buds. i personaly only ever buy chocolate flavours but some say strawberry is the nicest. you cant go wrong with milk choc. best regards


This is the 10lb bag isn't it? not a tub as shown in pic?
yes, i apologise. some of the pictures need updating. best regards


Why do you never seem to have chocolate flavour in stock? Been buying this for months and every time I look here, you never have it. You guys have lost 100s in sales!
HI Steve This is really hard to get hold of. We do buy humdreds of bags at a time. More choc and strawberry then out else and it just flys out the door. If you give us a call we can give you a date on a delivery. Kind regards Danny


Does this huge bag have a fastening mechanism or do you have to decant it into tubs?
