We have all heard about Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey protein in magazines and online shops abroad but have never seen a review about it in Pakistan. That is why here is an honest review by Synergize.pk’s team about the most talked about supplement of the world.
We have not only been in this business for past 10 years but have been practicing regular workouts and visits to several gyms near our area to improve the awareness of regular exercise and taking dietary supplements. To be honest, we have never found such a good tasting protein with the associated benefits attached. Either you choose to buy a double chocolate, strawberry or vanilla flavor, we can assure you that ON whey protein will keep on surprising you on each serving you have.
Good enough so that I looked forward to drinking it as a form of desert. Therefore, flavor wise, I award Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey Protein a score of 7.5/10.
We would rate Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey Protein a score of 9 out of 10.
ON continues to surprise us through is innovation in dietary supplements. Just add 1 or 2 scope to a shaker bottle, shake it for about 20 seconds and you are good to go. Trust us, this is the only thing you have to do. The supplement is so good in mixability that we have even used a spoon stir to dissolve the powder in water and milk and it mixes very easily.
We would award a score of 10 out of 10 for its mixability.
Unlike creatine or other pre workout supplements, whey protein do not have an immediate effect on your body.
Although there is no immediate effect with using any kind of protein supplement, what we have personally experienced is that you can see the effects within a month by using ON’s whey protein 2 scoops per day.
We have seen reasonable amount of power in intense workouts after the use of whey protein for a period of 2 weeks. The workouts last longer and stronger. ON’s whey protein available in Pakistan through Synergize.pk can also be used as a meal replacement supplement that makes it ideal as we Pakistani’s enjoy eating unhealthy food and the lack in protein in our food can be replaced by supplements.
We remember back in the days, when protein supplementation was not considered, it clearly added strength and mass to our bodies if combined with regular workouts and healthy diet.
We have failed to found an effective protein supplement that tastes good and mixes easily. According to a research, Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey Protein is the world’s most bought supplement. The product has received 5-star rating on all body building forums.
If you want a light taste that can be used twice or thrice a day, go for the strawberry flavor. On the other hand, if you are in just for the taste, you can try double chocolate that is as good as eating an ice-cream but the downside is, you will get fed up of the taste quite easily.
Most of the protein supplement brand claim about their protein content, but few individual lab studies show that ON’s whey protein contains the highest amount of protein per serving. We can no doubt award ON whey protein an overall score of 9 out of 10.
P.S: Always remember exercise and supplementation goes side by side. A supplement is nothing but a tasty shake if not mixed with regular workouts.
