THE REVIEW


Who would benefit most from Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Gainer Protein?

  • This product is a combination of Isolate, Concentrate, and Hydrolyzed Whey Protein.
    • Whey Isolate undergoes more processing, resulting in higher protein with less carbs, lactose, and fat. Whey isolate is usually more expensive than whey concentrate.
    • Hydrolyzed Whey Isolate is usually more beneficial for sensitive stomachs.
  • Ideal for athletes wanting to pack on size and muscle.
  • Athletes looking for maximum gains.
  • People looking for a weight gainer with high calories and high protein.
  • Optimum Nutrition Protein is known for great flavors!

Who would Not benefit from Gold Standard Gainer?

  • Only two flavors at the moment.
  • Athletes looking to lose weight or stay lean. This product has an enormous amount of calories.
  • People looking for low priced supplements. This product has 2 options, a 5lb and 10lb container, both fairly expensive for 11 or 23 servings, respectfully.
  • Vegan athletes.
