Description

Whey protein powder has a reputation as being the preserve of muscle-bound body builders. But the fact is that whether you are lifting barbells or holding asanas on your yoga mat, smashing it on the lat pulldown or putting in lengths at the local pool, a protein powder can help you to build the muscle mass and strength you need to take your exercise to the next level.

A by-product of the cheese making process, whey protein contains a wide range of vital amino acids that are absorbed quickly and put to work fast for results you can see and feel.

Whey also contains a variety of other helpful nutrients, making it much more than just a bulking powder.

Optimum Nutrition: blending flavour and results

A blend of whey protein isolate, concentrate and hydrolysate all in one, Optimum Nutrition whey protein for muscle support contains 24g of premium whey protein per serving.

This includes 5.5g of naturally occurring branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) and 4g of natural glutamine and glutamic acid.

Low in both sugar and fat, this fast digesting, delicious chocolate flavoured protein source also contains an added enzyme complex.

Rich and creamy, this great tasting whey protein shake is best consumed 30 – 60 minutes after your workout for best results when building muscle.

Alternatively, you may choose to enjoy the delicious flavour of Gold Standard 100% Whey before work or as a nutritious mid-afternoon treat to curb cravings if you are using it as part of a weight loss program.

Whey protein for exercise

Particularly effective consumed after a workout, protein powder may help to support the building of muscle mass in some people and help to increase strength.

Drinking a protein shake may also aid recovery from exercise. The most satiating macronutrient, protein has been shown to help us to feel fuller for longer, to keep us from reaching for the cookie jar.

Whey protein also appears to help improve energy expenditure, with some studies suggesting it can help dieters to burn up to an additional 100 calories per day and cause some people to consume up to 441 fewer calories each day as well.

The real bonus of using whey protein powders during weight loss, however, is their apparent ability to preserve muscle mass while increasing fat loss, helping you to maintain strength and a healthy shape as you tighten your belt.

FAQs

What is whey protein?

Whey protein is the most popular protein supplement. It is made from the leftover liquid from the yoghurt and dairy cheese manufacturing process. 

 

After it goes through several processes to improve the protein content concentration, it is dried to create whey concentrate or whey isolate.

 

Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard uses both types in its protein powder, making it purer than other powders on the market.

Do you need to go to the gym to take protein powder?

Absolutely not – protein powder is an excellent way to ensure you get enough protein in your body. It can also help prevent protein deficiencies.

 

However, protein shakes help with muscle growth. If you do not have torn muscles that the protein needs to rebuild, your body will store the excess protein as fat. 

 

Most people who do not exercise get all the protein they need through a healthy, balanced diet. 

 

But when do you do exercise hard, your protein requirements increase, which is where a protein shake could be beneficial to you.

How much protein do I need each day?

Every day, adults need approximately 0.75g of protein per kilo of body weight.

 

This roughly equates to 45g for the average woman and 55g for the average man. 

 

However, your daily recommended protein intake all depends on your weight and activity levels. 

 

Active adults who are looking to gain muscle mass may need more than this to see the best results.

How do I take protein powder?

Simply dissolve one rounded scoop (29.4g) of Chocolate Gold Standard Whey into 180 – 240ml of cold water. 

 

Shake it thoroughly, using a shaker cup or else stir it into a tall glass until the powder has completely dissolved. 

 

Alternatively, you might like to try it with a glass of milk, to create a delicious protein shake with added calcium. 

 

You could also add your favourite fruits, such as banana, coconut, or nut butter to suit your nutritional goals and improve the taste. 

 

Just chuck all the ingredients into a blender and mix until smooth.
