Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Natural 100% Whey - Vanilla - 5lb
Intense exercise causes the body's metabolism to strip itself of essential nutrients, including ones that are not readily available in the diet. One group of amino acids, known as branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) are essential to the body for preserving muscle and burning fat. Optimum Nutrition's exclusive protein blend provides the body with all of the BCAAs it needs in a form that is fast acting in the body, speeding up recovery and stopping muscle wasting.
How does Gold Standard Natural 100% Whey work?
Flooding the body with BCAAs before and after a workout starts a host of processes in the body and all are beneficial. Consuming BCAAs before a workout puts the amino acids in place to start burning fat during the routine for energy. It jumpstarts the weight loss process during the workout as opposed to after. After the workout, BCAAs prevent the body from stripping protein from the muscles in a process known as catabolism, or muscle wasting. Instead, protein synthesis is initiated, which increases lean skeletal muscles. The result is a muscle that sees an overall increase in size. BCAAs also shorten recovery time, minimizing any discomfort or muscle aches experienced after the workout.
Benefits of Optimum Nutrition's Gold Standard Natural 100% Whey in Vanilla:
- Exclusive protein blend absorbed quickly and easily by the body
- Helps burn fat for energy during the exercise routine
- Decreases muscle fatigue and shortens recovery time
