It tastes good (as good as can be for a whey protein powder), mixes somewhat easily (a blender or shaker is recommended but if your in a bind, you can get away with just using a spoon to mix), and has a high enough protein count in each serving to meet the needs of anyone looking to supplement some quality protein into their diet.

I've tried just about ever powder on the market, optimum is probably my favorite now-a-days. I mainly use it as a recovery drink after my workout, adding in a banana for extra sugar (when I use a blender). I've also been adding DAA powder to help with muscle recovery and strength increases,★ 50% Off Sale Today Only ★ Pure DAA D-Aspartic Acid Powder (200 Grams - Over 60 Servings) ★ Optimize Testosterone Levels - Promote Muscle Growth - Increase Strength & Endurance ★ Try it 100% Risk Free I know the protein powder has something to do with it as well, but DAA has been studied and proven to increase strength in a little as two weeks which I can attest to being true so adding it has been great. I always try to drink my shake within 30 minutes of when I finish my workout, both for the protein and for the DAA to absorb into my muscles as much as possible.

They say you should take some type of post workout recovery shake within the first hour after your workout. If you don't feed your body within that hour, it starts to break down muscle at a more rapid rate and feed off of that. At the very least, I'll always carry something with me, but ideally, I like drink the shake in the first 30 minutes to prevent any type of muscle breakdown.

Flavor Name: VanillaSize Name: 5 lb Verified Purchase
This is my first time buying protein. I've been working out for about three weeks now, trying to lose fat and gain muscle. I did a lot of research before I decided on this product, because I saw how expensive protein powders were. There's so many claims that every manufacturer make about how their product is superior to their competitors. I decided that I wouldn't base my decision on the flashy claims written on bottles, bright colors, or even on customer reviews. I did my own research online about what a GOOD protein powder should have. Here's why I love my Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey Gold Standard Natural Whey, Vanilla, 5 Pound:

1.) LOW CALORIE and LOW FAT - For me, this was probably the most important factor being someone who is try to shed fat. There are only 130 calories, 1g of fat, and 0.5g of saturated fat per scoop ( 1 scoop = 32g). This is by far the leanest protein I found.

2.) HIGH PROTEIN per scoop - If I was going to shell out over 50 bucks on a supplement, it better be worth my money. This powder packs 24g of protein per scoop. Another plus as Optimum Nutrition has made a high protein, and low calorie/fat product. You can't beat a powder which is 75% of pure protein by weight.

3.) ALL NATURAL ingredients - According to my research, the biggest dangers of protein powders were that they were chock full of artificial flavors and sweeteners which can cause harm if taken over a long period of time. This is why I opted for Optimum Nutrition's natural form of protein. This product only has natural flavorings, and natural cane juice for sweetness. Some reviews say that this powder lists stevia or Rebaudiana-A in the ingredients. This is FALSE. At least for me it is. My bottle lists evaporated cane juice as the only sweetener. No stevia in mine.

I bought this to add to my workout routine. I'm trying to build muscle now and I drink this after my weight lifting workouts. I looked at the ingredients and price on many products and decided on this brand--I got the natural chocolate and vanilla ice cream flavors. Both of them taste great. They seem to have the best ingredients if your looking for minimal artificial ingredients. This does not bother my irritable bowel syndrome--and believe me---most products cause lots of gas and bloating. This does not. I highly recommend this product. One point--I found out the Vitamin Shoppe sells this for about $2 cheaper and you can just walk right in and buy it and not wait for shipping.

Flavor Name: VanillaSize Name: 2 Pound Verified Purchase
I'm REALLY impressed with this stuff. I have tried a couple big name protein powders like Muscle Milk and Designer Whey, along with tons of ready-to-drink products. This is the ONLY whey protein that does not upset my stomach at all. Makes a delicious shake (try it with some almond milk, frozen banana, and PB2) that honestly tastes so close to a milkshake that I now crave this stuff. Even my super picky boyfriend was impressed!

I highly recommend this to people looking for a whey protein powder that is natural and easy on the stomach. It is also a decent price for the amount and quality.

I actually consider protein powders to be a "food" rather than a "supplement". If you don't remember anything else at all, please remember this Despite what the advertisements promise, protein supplements do not have any magical muscle-building properties! All these powders do is provide your muscles with protein to rebuild and they are in no way superior to a well balanced meal! I personally have never seen any research which has shown that any of these powders rebuild muscles any better than natural sources like chicken, fish, or beans/rice. These products do serve a convenient meal replacement when you don't have time to eat a full meal. From my experience it is very important to consume small doses of protein every 2-3 hours throughout the day for maximum muscle building and since very few people can eat a small, well balanced meal every 2-3 hours protein powders can be very useful.
Costco, Walmart, and all the big box stores carry very economical protein powder, about $26 for 6lbs. Problem is that they are all loaded with artificial flavors and sweeteners. They often have strong artificial smells and odd aftertastes.
This is my personal favorite is from Optimum Nutrition and I have been using it for about 7 years now. Nothing artificial period, I like that!. it is definitely not the cheapest protein but I think its worth it to have all natural ingredients. Optimum nutrition makes several other protein powders that have artificial stuff in them, make sure "100% natural" is in the name and you are safe. Look at the list of ingredients and compare it to that shown on the left, make sure there is nothing artifical sounding.
