Today i'd like to present a new category: Muscle Gaining Product Reviews!
We start with one of the most important ones: Whey.
Namely: Optimum Nutritions Gold Standard 100% Whey.
Whey is one of the staples of every athlete in the pursuit of muscle. It's quick absorbing easily digestable protein. Perfect in a post-workout shake for example. It's also very rich in branch-chain amino acids.
This study demonstrates on a rat model that post-exercise whey supplementation might induce a greater increase in muscle protein synthesis than a just carbohydrates solution, or carbohydrate mixed with amino acids.
Let's get to the Gold Standard, it's got a whooping 5,5g bcaas per scoop also over 4 grams of glutamine and precursors. There is a reason it's one of the best selling protein supplements in the market. All in all it has:
- 23 grams of protein
- 2-3 grams of carbohydrates
- 1.5 grams of fat
It mixes great with either water or milk, no clumps nothing. It's even mixable with a spoon if You don't own a shaker.
Taste. Let me tell you about the taste. If i've got the option of a real nice thick chocolate milk and the Double Rich Chocolate Gold Standard, i'd probably take the chocolate milk. But i would have to think real hard about it. And i love my chocolate milk.
The taste is amazing, especially Double Rich Chocolate mix it with milk and you got a real healthy chocolate milk all of the sudden.
In this price range and with that low amount of carbs there is no whey protein which tastes better.
If you don't have a protein supplement yet, i'd really suggest starting with this one.
