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 scientists 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 ADVANTAGE
GNC 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

        Comments about GNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein Vanilla Cream:

        I typically use ON's Gold Standard Whey, however I bought this during a BOGO sale because the sales associate said it was very comparable to Optimums products and that they have the same protein supplier. I was very happy with this buy and think it is every bit as good as Gold Standard (if not better). I mix the vanilla with skim milk for added calories and protein; it tastes very good, and is incredibly easy mixing and smooth to drink. I take post workout and first thing in the morning; this product does an excellent job with recovery, have not felt nearly as sore after intense workouts. If you can get this stuff fairly cheap, I highly recommend it.

          This product isn't bad, but I definitely like the chocolate flavor better. I usually just mix the chocolate and vanilla together just because I don't prefer the vanilla alone. Yet, I have noticed much more muscle definition since starting (probably a combination of the whey protein, including more lean protein into my diet, and going to the gym at least 5 days of the week).

            Was looking for a new protein drink
            this dissolves super easy, without any residue and not even needing a shaker bottle
            taste is great, no aftertaste
            I use it daily post workout and feel a big diff in recovery time. Esp after using it regularly.
            Expensive though so get it with coupon or on sale!
