What is Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Gainer?
Mass gainers are essentially, protein supplements with an added calorie source from carbohydrates. They’re designed for individuals who struggle to meet their calorie requirements from food alone – usually those with a naturally lean physique, otherwise known as the classic ectomorph. Mesomorphs with a significant proportion of muscle mass may also benefit from an increased calorie intake; this can assist them in upping the ante (as it were) in becoming hard gainers.
Gold Standard Gainer is renowned for its superior quality, offering a comprehensive formula to assist growth and recovery, and help you achieve your muscle-building goals.
Optimum Nutrition brought us the ‘Gold Standard’ in whey protein, and consequently, this is a baseline ingredient in their gainer. Whey protein isolate has an ultra-rapid absorption rate, ensuring the best possible support for developing muscles. Complex carbohydrates from oats, peas and potatoes provide a steady release of energy and help to replenish glycogen stores efficiently, and boost caloric value.
You’re also getting healthy fats in the form of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), chia and flaxseeds.
Enjoy the nutritional power of Gold Standard Gainer around your training, or at any other time of day.
