ON GS Whey


Whey Protein Isolates (WPI) are the purest form of whey protein that currently exists. WPIs are costly to use, but rate among the best proteins that money can buy. That’s why they’re the first ingredient you read on the Gold Standard 100% Whey label. By using WPI as the primary ingredient along with premium ultra-filtered whey protein concentrate (WPC), Optimum Nutrition packed 24 grams of protein into every serving to support your muscle building needs after training. Additionally, this superior quality powder has been instantized to mix easily using a shaker cup or just a glass and spoon. Get it here.

ON GS Casein


Right before or after training, rapidly digesting whey protein helps start recovery. Between meals and before bed, when nutritional support won’t be available for a while, casein protein can help provide longer lasting amino acid support. Casein proteins gel in the acidic environment of the stomach. As a result, it can take longer for caseins to be broken-down into their amino acid subcomponents than whey. Get it here.


Cake Bites is an anytime snack for active adults looking for tasty new ways to get quality protein. With these deliciously whipped bite-sized cakes, any day can feel like a cheat day. We’re sure you’ll also appreciate the grab and go convenience of each individually wrapped 3-cake serving. Get them here.
