      Supplement Facts

      BLENDER - (EASY: a little more involved but worth the trouble) Add one scoop of ON 100% Whey Gold Standard™ to a blender filled with 6-8 fl oz of your favorite beverage. Cover and blend for 20-30 seconds. Add 1-2 ice cubes then blend for an additional 30 seconds. Serve. For a delicious smoothie, try adding your favorite fruit, peanut butter, yogurt, shredded coconut, and/or other ingredients (along with ice cubes) to your blended whey protein shake.^^

      Shaker - (EASIER: Quick & Convenient) Fill a shaker bottle with 6-8 fl oz of your favorite beverage. Add one scoop ON 100% Whey Gold Standard™. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds.

      GLASS & SPOON - (EASIEST - Fast & Simple) Simply add one scoop of ON 100% Whey Gold Standard™ to a tall glass. Add 6-8 fl oz of your favorite beverage. Mix with a spoon for about 20 seconds or until powder is well disbursed.

      ^^Don't forget to account for the calories, carbohydrates, protein, fat, and other nutrients that these foods contribute to your shake.

      Suggested Use: To encourage a positive nitrogen balance, consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day from a combination of high protein foods and supplemets. For even better results, consume your daily protein allotment over 4-6 small meals spread evenly throughout the day.

      Example: 180lb x 1g protein/lb body weight=180g day
      180g ÷ 6 small meals = 30 g protein/meal

      Each serving of ON 100% Whey Gold Standard™ provides 24 grams of protein.

      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

      Dose: Refer to label instructions

      A double-blind trial showed that 45 grams per day of whey protein increased blood glutathione levels in a group of HIV-infected people.1 Test tube2, 3 and animal4 studies suggest that whey protein may improve some aspects of immune function.

      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

            Great product but I would avoid ordering online in the future. I ordered the item on one of the daily online deals GNC was running and it took approximately 3 weeks for my order to arrive at my door. The item was "located in stock" for two weeks before it shipped and took another week for Fed Ex to finally deliver. Save yourself the hassle and pick this product up at your local GNC.

                    the taste is great. especially considering how little fat and sugar are in it. plus it's a great value (especially when on sale) for such a large quantity. it lasts for quite a while. since switching from muscle milk, i've gained a decentamount of muscle and trimmed down as well. it's also nice that the serving size is only one scoop at a time-rather than multiple scoops with othe brands.
