The True Strength of Whey

Whey Protein Isolate (WPIs) are the purest form of whey protein that currently exists. WPIs are costly to use, but rate among the best proteins that money can buy. That's why they're the first ingredient you read on the Gold Standard 100% Whey label. By using WPI as the primary ingredient along with premium ultra-filtered whey protein concentrate (WPC), we're able to pack 24 grams of muscle-building protein into every serving. ON's attention to detail also extends to mixability. This superior quality powder has been instantized to mix easily using a shaker cup or just a glass and spoon. There's no doubt that this is the standard by which all other whey protein are measured.

Beyond The Basics

  • 80% Protein by Weight (24 g of Protein per 30 g Serving Size).
  • Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) Main Ingredient.
  • Whey Protein Microfractions from Whey Protein Isolate and Ultra-Filtered Whey Protein Concentrate.
  • Over 4 grams of Naturally Occurring Glutamine & Glutamic Acid in Each Serving.
  • More than 5 Grams of the Naturally Occurring Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine in Each Serving.
  • The "Gold Standard" for Protein Quality.

Suggested Use

Spoon Stirred: Gold Standard 100% Whey is instantized. That means if you forgot your shaker cup or don't have time to get out the blender, just add one scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey to a glass filled with 6-8 oz of water or your favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon. Stir for about 30 seconds for until powder is completely dissolved. Tip: Adjust the taste of your Gold Standard 100% Whey by varying the amount of liquid that you use to prepare it. For a bolder flavor with slightly more body and sweetness, mix each scoop with 4-6 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. For a milder tasting, less sweet shake, use 8-10 oz of liquid per scoop.

Shaker Cup: Bringing a shaker cup with you to the gym is the best way to get a dose of protein immediately after your workout. Just pour in 6-8 oz of your preferred beverage and then add one scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey to your shaker cup. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds.

Blender: Add one scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey to a blender filled with 6-8 fl oz of water or your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Then add 1 or 2 ice cubes and blend for an additional 30 seconds. Shake Up Your Shake: By adding fresh or frozen fruits, peanut butter, flaxseed oil, coconut, and other ingredients, you can make an even more delicious shake. Stack Your Shake: You can make Gold Standard 100% Whey an even better post workout product by adding supplements like Creatine, Glutamine, BCAA, and concentrated carbohydrate powders

Think Outside The Glass: Gold Standard 100% Whey can be used for more than just protein shakes. Try mixing a scoop into oatmeal, yogurt, or the milk that you pour over your morning breakfast cereal. Better yet, increase the protein content of muffins, cookies, brownies, etc. by adding a scoop or two to your baked goods recipes.

Suggested Use: For healthy adults, consume enough protein to meet your daily protein requirements with a combination of high protein foods and protein supplements throughout the day as part of a balanced diet and exercise program.

FAQ

Does everyone need supplements? Not everyone needs supplements. However, just about everyone can benefit from supplements. You may have a specific issue you want to address, like fatigue or trouble focusing for more than a few minutes at a time. Or you may feel great, in which case supplements are like oiling the parts of a well-running machine so that it keeps performing at its best.

Why can’t I get all the vitamins and minerals I need from my food? That would be great, wouldn’t it? Unfortunately, most of the soil in which our food crops are grown has been depleted through extensive use. Hundreds of years ago, farmers could let fields “rest” for a season while the soil renewed itself with the help of rain, earthworms and microbial activity. Now with a more populated planet and higher food demands, fields are kept in production and the soil becomes depleted.

How do I know which supplements to take? If you have no specific health issues, start with a basic multivitamin or even with just vitamin C, proven to help prevent and shorten the duration of colds and flu-related illnesses.

If I take supplements, can I worry less about my diet? Supplements are never a substitute for a good, balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. However, eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, drinking plenty of water, exercising, getting enough sleep AND fine-tuning your health with supplements can be a powerful combination.

Are supplements safe to take? Although supplements are generally safe, it’s always best to check with your doctor before starting on a program of supplements. Some supplements may not be appropriate for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, for example. And the most important thing is to observe how you feel while taking a particular supplement. Listen to the feedback your body will give you!

What if I’m pregnant? If you’re pregnant, ask your doctor or midwife about a good prenatal supplement. You may need extra iron or folic acid during your pregnancy, and prenatal vitamins are formulated with both you and the baby in mind.

Can supplements make me look better? Many people swear by treating their skin from the inside out. Popular beauty-boosting supplements are hyaluronic acid, collagen peptides, vitamin C, omega-3s and antioxidants. When combined with exercise, a healthy diet, enough sleep and use of sunscreen, these supplements can be a powerful weapon in your beauty arsenal.

Can supplements keep me from getting COVID-19? While no supplement has proven effective in preventing or curing COVID-19, a healthy body is more resistant to illnesses. Get enough sleep and exercise, drink plenty of water, eat the healthiest diet you can and find the right supplements for your body! Many people love immune-boosting supplements such as turmeric, ginger and of course, vitamin C.

Can supplements help me with stress? Many people swear by plant-based calming supplements such as chamomile, rhodiola rosea or ashwagandha. Melatonin is also popular for enhancing sleep. We believe that a healthy body is naturally more resistant to the stresses of everyday life, but you may need extra help from a supplement during a particularly stressful period.

How can I find the right supplement for me? Read, take advantage of the information we offer here, ask your friends and family what has worked for them, and ask your doctor! Then finally, choose a supplement according to your needs and observe how you feel while taking it. And lastly, congratulate yourself for taking an important step towards a healthier you!
