OPTIMUM NUTRITION – GOLD STANDARD GAINER
PROTEIN AND CARB RECOVERY FORMULA
Gold Standard Gainer is built on a foundation of complete dairy proteins, mostly from Isolate sources. The carbohydrate blend includes Oat, Pea and Potato and the fats include medium chain triglycerides (MCT), Chia and Flax. Obviously, this is not your typical gainer formula. ON took it a step further by making it easy to mix up in a shaker cup. No blender needed. This is the new Gold Standard for weight gain.
Gold Standard Gainer offers a 2:1 ratio of carbohydrate energy to quality, primarily isolate, protein and good fats from flax and chia seed with added medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) all at 760 calories.
The most interesting highlight there has to be the product’s inclusion of Compound Solutions’ Carb10, a pea sourced carbohydrate best described as a fast-acting carb with less of an insulin spike compared to others
WHAT’S IN IT?
HYDROLYZED WHEY PROTEIN
Hydrolyzed Whey Protein can provide Super-Protein nutrition, and its benefits are especially noteworthy for people who experience digestive discomfort (gas and/or bloating) or have trouble digesting other food proteins.
WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE (WPI)
Whey Protein Isolate contains all the essential amino acids – EAAs that are required for your body to repair and gain muscle after your workout.
Essential Amino Acids – EAAs cannot be produced in your body, need to be taken from foods and supplements. Which is why EAAs are very important role of your diet for repairing and building the lean muscles. Whey Protein Isolate (WPI) has very low on fat and carbohydrates, as well as less than 1% of lactose, can be digested easily for athletes with sensitive stomachs
WHEY PROTEIN CONCENTRATE (WPC)
Whey Protein Concentrate (WPC) helps to develop lean muscle mass, promote muscle growth and support rapid recovery after a workout. They have high biological value and protein efficiency.
The key benefit of Whey Protein Concentrate is that the rate of absorption is slightly slower than that of Whey Protein Isolate, and as such, the body is able to retain free form amino acids for a slightly longer period of time after exercise for lean muscle development.
MILK PROTEIN ISOLATE (MPI)
Milk Protein Isolate (MPI) is the substance obtained by the partial removal of sufficient non-protein constituents (lactose and minerals) from skim milk so that the finished dry product contains 90% or more protein by weight. Milk Protein Isolate contains a minimum of 90% protein. It contains very little fat (typically less than 3%), carbohydrates or lactose and can be used as a daily supplement for those who do not consume the recommended amount of protein in their diet or those who are lactose intolerant. Milk Protein Isolate has very high amino acid composition that makes it ideal for use in protein bars and meal replacement powders.
Flaxseed Protein is a good source of many nutrients. Their health benefits are mainly due to their content of omega-3 fatty acids, lignans, ALA and fibre. Flaxseed also boosts a 1-to-4 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids, which can help support recovery.
ALA is classified as a polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA), and helps to reduce inflammation and stabilize cell membranes. ALA is also converted in to DHA and EPA, two omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil.
LOW GI CARBOHYDRATES – LOWER INSULIN SPIKE Carb10®
When it comes to bulking, carbs can be both your friend and your foe. They provide crucial calories and help to replenish energy levels, but they can also drive up fat storage and make you feel a bit sluggish. Enter CARB 10.
Carb10® is a major advancement in healthy, low-glycaemic carbohydrates.
Unlike maltodextrin-based supplements, which can cause unnatural spikes in blood-sugar levels (and the crashes or bloating that typically follow), Carb10® is a source of clean, sustained energy. It is perfectly suited to the physical demands of dedicated athletes, busy professionals, and those attentive to maintaining a healthy weight.
Low osmolality enables Carb10 to speed through the stomach. So, rather than causing bloating. Carb10 passes rapidly into the large intestine where it aids the gut microbiome – all without causing a spike in insulin. In a clinical study in human subjects, Carb10 had an 82% lower insulin response and 27% lower blood sugar response than maltodextrin.
MCT OIL BLEND
The consumption of MCT’s has been linked to improving energy production, supporting a healthy metabolism and delaying glycogen depletion, as well as being further characterised as a muscle energy source as opposed to being stored as adipose tissue.
BETWEEN MEALS: Mix up 1 scoop of Gold Standard Gainer between meals to help support a high calorie diet.
POST WORKOUT: Mix 1-2 scoops of Gold Standard Gainer in 10 – 20 fl oz of milk or water 30 – 45 minutes following exercise to support maximum recovery.
BEFORE BED: Mix up 1 scoop of Gold Standard Gainer about 45 – 60 minutes before bed to help muscles recover while you sleep.
For healthy adults, consume enough protein to meet your daily protein requirements with a combination of high protein foods and protein supplements throughout the day as part of a balanced diet and exercise program.
