Optimum Nutrition : Optimum Nutrition Classic Whey Protein

Brands: Optimum Nutrition.Product Categories: Whey Protein.

Classic Whey is Optimum Nutrition’s premium, economy protein supplement and is made with 100% Whey Protein. Each serving offers a time-tested blend of Whey Protein Concentrates (WPC), Ion-Exchange Whey Protein Isolates (IE), Micro-filtered Whey Protein Isolates (MF), and partially hydrolyzed Whey Peptides – each of which are believed to be of the highest biological value (BV) because they are rich with indispensible amino acids and very easily digested and absorbed. Classic Whey is particularly stocked with the three Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) and is a great source of glutamine and glutamine precursors. Additionally, Classic Whey contains smaller proteins called microfractions including alpha-lactalbumin, beta-lactoglobulin, immunoglobulins, glycomacropeptides, and lactoferrin that may have various health and performance benefits beyond supplying critical nitrogen-based compounds. Best of all, Classic Whey is instantized to mix easily in a blender, shaker cup, or even with just a glass and spoon, so you can enjoy the benefits of whey proteins just about anywhere! However you use it, Classic Whey is a perfect protein supplement for most nutrition programs.

Whey protein is popular with active adults because it digests rapidly and is a rich source of amino acids to support muscle recovery. Whey protein isolates are the purest form of whey and the primary ingredient in Gold Standard 100% Whey. Each serving provides 24 grams of rapidly digesting whey protein with low levels of fat, cholesterol, lactose and other stuff you can do without. There’s no doubt this is the standard all other proteins are measured against.*
