What is Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Gainer?
Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Gainer is a revolution in the mass gain supplement category.
This is not just another cheap gainer. Optimum have set about making a quality lean muscle building product and done one hell of a job of it.
Each serve of Gold Standard Gainer packs 760 calories including 55 grams of muscle building protein and 110 grams of quality carbohydrates.
The standout of this product is not just the macronutrient profile but the quality of the nutrient sources utlised to make it.
The majority of the 55gm protein comes from whey protein isolate. This is the gold standard of whey protein sources and only fitting to find it as the primary protein source in this gainer.
You also get whey protein concentrate,milk protein isolate and whey hydrolysate to provide a versatile protein blend suitable for anytime throughout the day.
Carbohydrates role is to fuel performance/training and help to spare protein and fats to repair muscle damage. The sources used in this product include oat flour,patented Carb10 and potato starch. This are all very high quality carb sources that are not only lower GI but also very rich in micronutrients.
Add in 11gm of healthy fats from flaxseeds,chia seeds and MCT's and you now have a fantastic lean mass gainer.

HOW DO I USE IT?
We recommend having 1 serve a day but splitting it into 2 servings. Mix 1/2 serve up in the morning with breakfast and then have the other half post-workout. If are a week of this you are not gaining weight go to 1/2 serve in the morning and a full serve post-workout.
Mix each serving up in approximately 400-600ml of water in your Spartansuppz shaker.
HOW MUCH DOES PRO COMPLEX GAINER COST?
This is $139.95 and has 23 serves making it $6.06/serve.
SHOULD I USE ANYTHING ELSE WITH THIS FOR BEST RESULTS?
If your goal is to increase muscle size and strength we’d recommend taking creatine as well. For this we'd recommend Creatine HCL from Hybrid Nutrition.
Creatine is quite possibly the most studied and most proven nutritional supplement to increase strength, power and muscle mass. Mix 10gm of creatine powder in with your Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Gainer post-workout for best results.
