Echo Supplements on Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey Protein
Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey is the world's number 1 selling protein shake - this is due to the unrelenting focus on quality from Optimum Nutrition. Gold Standard Whey is one of the few protein shakes to have whey protein isolate as the main ingredient, this means lower carbs and fats compared to any shake with whey concentrate as the main ingredient.
With a protein level of around 80% depending on flavour Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey provides more protein in the tub than almost any other protein shake.
The flavour of Optimum Whey Protein is often voted best on the market and every flavour mixes perfectly for a smooth easy to drink shake. At Echo we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Gold Standard Whey to anyone looking for a high quality protein to support an intense training programme.

Gold Standard 100% Whey is instantiated. That means if you forgot your shaker cup or don't have time to get out the blender, just add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey to a glass filled with 6-8oz (180-240ml) of water or your favourite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon. Stir for about 30 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved.
Tip: Adjust the taste of your Gold Standard 100% Whey by varying the amount of liquid that you use to prepare it. For a bolder flavour with slightly more body and sweetness mix each scoop with 4-6oz (120-180ml) of water, milk or your favourite beverage. For a milder tasting, less sweet shake use 8-10oz (240-300ml) of liquid per scoop.
SHAKER: Bringing a shaker cup with you to the gym is the best way to get a powerful dose of protein immediately after your workout. Just pour in 6-8 oz of your preferred beverage and then add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey to your shaker cup. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds.
BLENDER: Add one rounded scoop of Gold Standard 100% Whey to a blender filled with 6-8 oz of water, nonfat milk, or your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Then add 1 or 2 ice cubes and blend for an additional 30 seconds.
SHAKE UP YOUR SHAKE: By adding fresh or frozen fruits, peanut butter, flaxseed oil, coconut and other high-energy ingredients, you can transform your shake into a delicious high-protein meal.
STACK YOUR SHAKE: You can make Gold Standard 100% Whey an even more powerful recovery product by adding supplements like creatine, glutamine, BCAA, and concentrated carbohydrate powders.
THINK OUTSIDE THE GLASS: Gold Standard 100% Whey can be used for more than just protein shakes. Try mixing a scoop into oatmeal, yogurt, or the milk that you pour over your morning breakfast cereal. Better yet, boost the protein content of muffins, cookies, brownies, etc. by adding a scoop or two to your baked goods recipes.
SUGGESTED USE: Consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day through a combination of high protein foods and protein supplements. For even better results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread evenly throughout the day.
