Why Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Double Rich Chocolate Is The Best Protein Powder?

Gold Standard Double Rich Chocolate is an exceptional choice for a post-workout recovery formula because it contains whey protein isolate and whey protein concentrate. Whey protein isolate is absorbed by the body faster than other proteins, so this supplement can help deliver amino acids to muscles after intense exercise. This makes Gold Standard Double Rich Chocolate more effective at building muscle or burning fat than other recovery formulas containing only one whey protein type.

24 G Protein

The main ingredient in Gold Standard Double Rich Chocolate is whey protein. Whey protein contains all nine essential amino acids necessary to build muscle. There are other brands of protein powder available on the market that contain more than 24 grams of protein per serving; however, OPTIMUM NUTRITION has found that this amount is an optimal mix between quality and taste.

4 G Glutamine

OPTIMUM NUTRITION has added four grams of glutamine to their whey protein. Glutamine is known for its ability to help with muscle recovery and growth. It can also be helpful in the process of losing fat because it improves your immune system.

5.5 G of BCAAs

OPTIMUM NUTRITION has included 5.5 grams of the branched-chain amino acids (isoleucine, leucine, and valine) in Gold Standard Double Rich Chocolate. The BCAAs help promote lean muscle growth while preventing catabolism during exercise by shutting down cortisol production after exercise, which hinders muscle building. In addition, these three amino acids prevent strength loss while dieting or exercising for long periods by minimizing fatigue and increasing mental concentration.

Supports Endurance and Recovery

OPTIMUM NUTRITION has included 5 grams of L-glutamine in Gold Standard Double Rich Chocolate, which is helpful in the recovery process. It is known that glutamine can help increase endurance, speed up recovery time and minimize the loss of strength while lifting weights or running long distances.

Helps Build and Maintain Muscle

There are 24 grams of protein in OPTIMUM NUTRITION's Gold Standard Double Rich Chocolate supplement. Protein powder such as this one can promote muscle growth because it enhances lean muscle tissue. When you take a whey protein shake after working out, there will be an immediate increase in nutrient delivery to your muscles due to increased blood flow from exercise. This helps your body build muscle quickly and efficiently.

Banned Substance Tested

OPTIMUM NUTRITION tests for banned substances in all their supplements to make sure they are safe for professional athletes to use during competition. This is extremely important because anyone who competes in a sport has to make sure that their supplement of choice will not result in any form of punishment from the sport's governing body. OPTIMUM NUTRITION was one of the first companies on the market to have its entire line of products tested by NSF International, a third-party test lab specializing in testing nutritional supplements. 

Naturally & Artificially Flavored

There are many different protein powder flavours available on the market, so adding a flavouring option to OPTIMUM NUTRITION's line will ensure that their customers have some variety when choosing their protein supplement. 

Double Rich Chocolate Flavour

OPTIMUM NUTRITION has added the naturally and artificially flavoured version of their most popular flavour: Double Rich Chocolate. Double rich chocolate was selected as the go-to flavour because it is known for its authentic taste and mouth-watering qualities. This product also contains real cocoa powder, enhancing its taste even more while providing antioxidants with an extra health benefit. This is a favourite among OPTIMUM NUTRITION customers, as it tastes great by itself or with fruit mixed into it.
