ON 100% Whey Protein

100 whey protein gold standard

Product: Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Protein (100 whey protein gold standard)

Focus: Protein Gainer

MSRP: $11.99 for a 1lb (pounds) container (view the flavors and cheap supplement prices here)

Available: Online

This is the protein that I’ve been using on and off for the last 18 months or so, unlike my recent review of N-Large 2. There have been a lot of questions of ‘Should i get it, Should i not’ going around on online and in the gym i go to, so i thought I’d come home and give everyone a verdict.

Just like N-large 2 this is a very high quality protein powder. The main difference with this one is that when you blend it, it really does dissolve better.

How i used it

I would recommend taking one scoop when waking up, and 2 scoops after workout. I personally would also recommend that any who wants to add serious muscle mass to also purchase creatine. As you know, the one i tried was BSN cell mass.

The flavours

1- Tropical punch ( this stuff tastes like juice!! and goes down) VERY EASY.

2- Delicious Strawberry ( Very light, tastes great and easy to drink)

3- Cookies and cream ( Taste pretty good and easy to drink as well)

4. Rocky Road (You need to taste this one!)

Some people state that you should mix milk, but i think that this messes up the protein formula, so i wouldn’t recommend doing that. However, it does make it taste better and it makes for a great protein shake. A combination that I frequently mix together is

1. Whey Protein

2. Dextrose ( A form of sugar)

3. Glutamine

And i take that around 30 minutes to an hour after a workout.

Just like my other reviews, this is the good stuff. Go for a few 1lb containers of different flavors. That way you get to gain weight in style 🙂


1. There are no reported side affects (It has been 2 years of using as of now)

2. Always keep a good diet when using Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey Protein. No protein supplement will replace a bad diet, it will only fill the body full of nutrients that it may lack.

For all of you factual types I’ll leave you with the key benefits that you get from this.

  1. ON 100% Whey Gold Standard provides more whey protein isolates (WPI) – the purest and most expensive source of whey protein available.
  2. Higher protein percentage. ON’s 100% Whey Gold Standard has always been a leader in this respect. Now with 24 grams of protein in just slightly over one-ounce serving, it’s nearly 79% protein by weight!
  3. We’ve included more HydroWhey strategically hydrolyzed, low molecular weight whey peptides to make ON’s 100% Whey Gold Standard even faster acting!
  4. ON’s 100% Whey Gold Standard now contains lactase and Aminogen digestive enzymes to further enhance absorption and make this product even more friendly to lactose intolerant individuals.
  5. ON’s 100% Whey Gold Standard is instantized to mix easily and completely with just a few twirls of a spoon.
  6. Every serving supplies even more low, moderate, and high molecular weight, biologically active whey protein microfractions including Alpha-lactalbumin, Glycomacropeptides, Beta-lactoglobulin, Immunoglobulin G (IgG), Lactoferrin, lactoperoxidase, and various growth factors.
  7. Over 4 grams of glutamine and glutamine precursors as well as 5 grams of BCAAs (leucine, isoleucine, and valine) in each scoop!
