Description
HIGH-QUALITY FAST DIGESTING
  • 24g of Ultra-Microfiltered Whey Protein
  • Supports Muscle Recovery and Growth
  • Great-Tasting & Low Carb Formula
Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein delivers an ultra-high quality macronutrient protein formula with high amounts of naturally occurring amino acids the body needs every day. Whey protein is essential in any nutrition regimen, regardless of age or activity, providing a catalyst to the body for protein synthesis and muscle growth. Far superior to other protein supplements, this advanced formula will provide your body with the pure, clean, high-quality protein you need to fuel muscles while maximizing recovery. Don’t take chances with your results – get GNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein and feed your body what it needs.

THE PRO PERFORMANCE® RESULTS ADVANTAGE
When GNC’s team of research scientist looked to improve this 100% Whey Protein formula, they knew the answer was “more,” specifically through a higher protein formula to enhance nitrogen retention. Your muscles can only grow when your body retains enough nitrogen. And one of the most effective sources of nitrogen for fueling lean muscle mass is whey protein. The specially manufactured, ultra-microfiltered whey protein found in this formula delivers naturally-occurring anabolic amino acids into your bloodstream. This spike in aminos provides nitrogen and subsequently creates a nitrogen-rich environment needed for maximum muscle protein synthesis. Protein synthesis is crucial to the building of lean muscle mass.THE PRO PERFORMANCE® QUALITY ADVANTAGEGNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein is also tested for banned substances, providing peace of mind in the highest quality formulation. Our researchers created a superior whey protein formula that not only delivers rapid muscle fueling results, but every flavor has a satisfying, delicious, mouth-watering taste profile. Each serving mixes up instantly with a blender, shaker, or a spoon – it’s that smooth and it couldn’t be easier. This GNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein is our best-tasting whey protein formula ever.

Health Notes

Whey Protein

Whey Protein
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Athletic Performance
Dose: 20 grams daily up to 1.2 grams of per 2.2 of pounds body weight per day
Animal studies suggest that whey protein can increase gains in lean body mass resulting from exercise. One study found that people taking whey protein improved their performance on a test of short-term intense cycling exercise.(more)
Immune Function
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Whey protein appears to improve some aspects of immune function. One trial showed that whey protein increased blood glutathione levels in a group of HIV-infected people.(more)
HIV and AIDS Support
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Whey protein is rich in the amino acid cysteine, which the body uses to make glutathione, an important antioxidant. Supplementing with it may improve immune function.(more)
Osteoporosis
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Some whey proteins may reduce bone loss. Milk basic protein (MBP) is a mixture of some of the proteins found in whey protein and has been shown to promote bone density(more)
Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Whey protein may aid weight loss due to its appetite-suppressing effect.(more)
Athletic Performance
Dose: 20 grams daily up to 1.2 grams of per 2.2 of pounds body weight per day

Animal studies suggest that whey protein can increase gains in lean body mass resulting from exercise.1 A controlled trial found that six weeks of strength training while taking 1.2 grams of whey protein per 2.2 of pounds body weight per day resulted in greater gains in lean body mass, but improved only one out of four strength tests.2 Another controlled study found that people taking 20 grams per day of whey protein for three months performed better on a test of short-term intense cycling exercise than people taking a similar amount of milk protein (casein).3 However, a double-blind trial found that men taking 1.5 grams per 2.2 lbs of body weight per day of predigested whey protein for 12 weeks along with a strength training exercise program gained only half as much lean body mass and had significantly smaller increases in strength compared with men using a similar amount of predigested casein along with strength training.4 A controlled study of HIV-infected women found that adding whey protein to strength training exercise was no more effective than exercise alone for increasing strength or improving body composition.5

Osteoporosis
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Some whey proteins may reduce bone loss.1 Milk basic protein (MBP) is a mixture of some of the proteins found in whey protein. A preliminary trial found that 300 mg per day of MBP improved blood measures of bone metabolism in men, suggesting more bone formation was occurring than bone loss.2 A double-blind trial found that women taking 40 mg per day of MBP for six months had greater gains in bone density compared with those taking a placebo.3 No osteoporosis-related research has been done using complete whey protein mixtures.

Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructions

Whey protein may aid weight loss due to its effect on appetite. In a preliminary study, people were given 48 grams of either whey protein or milk protein (casein). Whey consumption resulted in more hunger satisfaction and reduced the amount of food eaten 90 minutes later compared with casein consumption.1 However, a double-blind study found that men taking 1.5 grams per 2.2 lbs body weight per day of whey protein for 12 weeks along with a low-calorie diet and a strength training exercise program lost the same amount of weight and body fat as did a control group that followed a similar program, but took a casein supplement instead of whey protein.2

Whey protein is a mixture of some of the proteins naturally found in milk. The major proteins found in whey protein include beta-lactoglobulin and alpha-lactalbumin. Whey protein has one of the highest protein digestibility-corrected amino acid scores (PDCAAS; a measure of protein bioavailability) and is more rapidly digested than other proteins, such as casein (another milk protein). 1

    Out of the three flavors I have tried, Chocolate Supreme is my favorite. It tastes way better than other chocolate proteins that I have had. It's great to drink, especially if I don't eat sometimes.

      Comments about GNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein - Chocolate Supreme:

      GNC was out of ON Gold Standard so I bought this. The ON mixes well and tastes good although I am not sure how effective it is.

      The GNC brand tastes ok but does not mix well at all. It clumps badly. I've read this is a good thing and is an indicator of the BCAA content but am not sure. I'm considering just eating the powder with a spoon and chasing with water. Yes, it is that hard to mix. Forget spoon stirring. Even a shaker is not up to the task.

        Comments about GNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein - Chocolate Supreme:

        Why did you change the formula from Plain Chocolate to Chocolate Supreme?
        It doesn't taste nearly as good as the old product.
        My son won't drink the new product and he's a bodybuilder.
        The old formula mixed easily with a spoon. Now I have to use a shaker AND IT'S STILL NOT as good!
        The container (though not a big deal) isn't appealing like the old one.
        What are people thinking when they make these gross blunders anyway?
        I just discovered that it contains soybeans! I don't know if the old product did.
        How can they state 100% Whey when it contains soybeans?
        I chatted with your rep, Kenya. She said it had something to do with the ingredient - lecithin.
        But I wonder.
        To her credit: Kenya is a nice person and also very patient and knowledgeable. Please give her a raise!
        Thank you.

                Had to change flavors after they discontinued the Chocolate Caramel or at least my local store stopped. The flavor is ok and I do notice a difference when taking, however something with the new formula is not right. It will not mix with a spoon. I have been buying instantized protein for years and this is the first time I have had trouble with clumping. I have even tried shaking and still huge amounts of clumps. I have had to resort to getting the blender back out. Not what I expected....
                Will not be buying this product again.

                    Don't like the new formula. The chocolate is much sweeter--similar to the old Chocolate Caramel flavor. The old formula was the first protein that my husband actually liked. I guess now we will have to find a new brand. Too bad. :( I also don't like that this one has more calories than the old formula as well. Make sure you weigh the scoop because with the new scoop it is really easy to get more than one serving.

                          The changes that have been made have ruined the product. I have been using the Pro Performance 100% Whey for many years and it has always been an outstanding product. Most Protein products causes my heart to race and give me the jitters. The original did not do this, but the changes that have been made now have the same bad effect. The Carbs have been raised from 5 to 6 per serving. It mixes poorly with lumps and the flavor was really good and now it tastes synthetic. Overall I am not happy with the product and will not recommend it to my patients. Unfortunately the company has dropped the ball on this product change. Please bring back the old formulation.
