ADVANCED HYDROLYZED WHEY PROTEIN

FASTEST & PUREST

THE BIGGER PICTURE OF HYDROLYZED WHEY PROTEINS

PLATINUM HYDROWHEY® is the fastest, purest, most advanced whey protein we’ve ever developed. In a word: excellence. By hydrolyzing the protein in this premium formula we’ve created our fastest-acting whey protein yet. Hydrolyzing breaks larger proteins down into smaller pieces that are able to get into your system rapidly, enabling your muscles to start rebuilding quickly. For added effectiveness we’ve also enhanced it with digestive enzymes and micronized branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). PLATINUM HYDROWHEY® is ultra-pure too. That’s because it’s made with hydrolyzed whey protein isolates. So, there’s no excess fat, cholesterol, or lactose to slow down your progress either.
  • Purified - Excess moisture, fat, cholesterol, lactose, and other materials are removed so that ultra-pure protein remains.
  • Hydrolyzed - Once the purest whey proteins have been isolated, they are broken down, or hydrolyzed, into smaller pieces for faster delivery.
  • Enhanced - Finally, PLATINUM HYDROWHEY® is enhanced with digestive enzymes and micronized free-form BCAAs for added effectiveness.
BEYOND THE BASICS
  • Made with ADVANCED HYDROLYZED WHEY Protein Isolates for FASTER DELIVERY.
  • 30 grams of ULTRA-PURE PROTEIN.
  • Nearly 9 grams of Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine (BCAAs) per scoop.
  • NO LACTOSE or CHOLESTEROL.
  • Contains DIGESTIVE ENZYMES for enhanced utilization.
  • INSTANTIZED to mix easily with a spoon.

Supplement Facts



PLATINUM HYDROWHEY® is INSTANTIZED, so it always mixes upeasily and completely. Simply add 1 scoop of PLATINUMHYDROWHEY® to a blender, shaker cup, or glass filled with 12ounces of cold water, milk, or juice and blend, shake, or stir for20-30 seconds or until powder is dissolved. TIP: Adjust theintensity of your PLATINUM HYDROWHEY® shake by varying theamount of liquid you use to prepare it. For a slightly thickerconsistency with bolder flavor, mix each scoop with 10 ounces ofwater. For a milder tasting less sweet shake, use 14-16 ouncesof liquid per scoop.


STACK YOUR SHAKE: By adding dietary supplements includingcreatine, BCAA, and carbohydrate powders you can makePLATINUM HYDROWHEY® an even more powerful recoveryproduct. TIP: Use faster-acting PLATINUM HYDROWHEY® duringthe day and more slowly digested GOLD STANDARD 100% CASEIN™at night for around-the-clock amino acid coverage.


SUGGESTED USE: Consume approximately 1 gram of protein perpound of body weight per day through a combination of highprotein foods and protein supplements. For best resultsconsume your daily protein allotment over several meals spreadevenly throughout the day.

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 Optimum Nutrition Platinum Hydro Whey® - Turbo Chocolate:

        I feel like this is a great product. You get quality ingredients and my body responds well to it. I've tried several whey products, from bargain brands like six star and body fortress to more costly brands like the GNC Amp 60. This is my favorite. It's a little on the pricy side but well worth it considering. I mix it with whole milk, to get a full protein shake(milk casein), after my evening lift session. Some wheys might taste better but this tastes decent. Just wish they had banana cream, but that's a preference, not a fault.

          Superior post recovery protien. Pricey, yes, but my belief is that if you are going to spend hours in the gym tearing down your muscles it's worth it to buy something that helps them recover fast as possible. Good tasting, easily digestible, and effective.

            I decided to switch to premium whey after being a long time user of AMP whey 60. I had no complaints with AMP just wanted to switch it up, and try a protein with less calories. I want to start off by saying how impressed I was with the shipping. I placed my order with standard shipping which was expected to be 6-12 days, it only took 3. This product may seem pricey to most of you, but when you look at the quality of the protein your getting, and 40 servings of it, the price is completely justifiable.

                    This has been my default protein for a long time. It has a great amino acid profile. Never given me digestion issues. The chocolate is the best tasting thing I eat some days (sad, I know). It's not the cheapest on the block, but I've tried even more expensive brands and found them less appealing. Get it if you can afford it.
