Gold Standard 100% Whey is possibly the most well-known supplement on the market, but how does it rank when stacked against others of its kind? Gold Standard 100% Whey comprises three different forms of whey protein: whey protein isolate, whey protein concentrate, and whey peptides.
It also contains amino acids (enzymes to help break down the protein), including three of the most valuable BCAAs - Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine, the presence of which support further protein synthesis, improve intra-training energy levels (through metabolic action) and assist with recovery.
In addition, it also boasts 5g per serve of glutamine, which has been clinically shown to increase nitrogen uptake within the anabolic process and provide idyllic conditions for lean muscle hypertrophy.
Each serving provides 24 grams of rapidly-digesting whey protein with low levels of fat, lactose and gluten. There's no doubt this is the standard by which all other proteins are measured.
- 100% pure Whey Protein Isolates (WPI).
- More than 5 Grams of Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) Leucine, Isoleucine & Valine in Each Serving.
- Over 4 Grams of Glutamine & Glutaminc Acid in Each Serving.
- Whey Protein Micro-fractions form Whey Protein Isolates & Ultra-Filtered Whey Protein Concentrate.
Gold Standard 100% Casein: Sometimes slower is better - especially when it comes to the rate of protein digestion. While rapid protein absorption is desirable immediately before or after exercise, delayed release is probably more beneficial throughout the remainder of the day.
Casein proteins are pH sensitive and gel in the acidic environment of the stomach. As a result, it can take more than twice as long for caseins to be broken-down into their amino acid subcomponents than whey and other proteins. Because of their unique time-released qualities, caseins are aptly described as anti-catabolic or muscle-protecting proteins.
- 24 g of Highly Anti-Catabolic MICELLAR CASEIN
- 10 g of BCAAs, Glutamine, and Glutamine Precursors per Scoop
- AMINOGEN Enhanced
Add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard 100% Casein to a shaker cup filled with 300ml - 350ml of your preferred beverage. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds.
*For a bolder flavor with slightly more body and sweetness, mix one heaping scoop with 250ml - 300ml of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. For a milder tasting, less sweet shake, use 350ml - 400ml of liquid per scoop.
