Platinum Hydrowhey was recognized by thousands of Bodybuilding.com customers as 2010's New Supplement of the Year. What else would you expect from Optimum Nutrition's, fastest, purest and most advanced protein technology?
By hydrolyzing the protein in this premium formula we've created our most effective whey protein yet. Hydrolyzing breaks larger proteins down into smaller pieces that are used by the body to support muscle growth and maintenance. For added effectiveness, we've also enhanced this revolutionary formula with ACTITOR peptides, digestive enzymes and micronized branched chain amino acids (BCAAs). Platinum Hydrowhey is also ultra-pure because it's made entirely with hydrolyzed whey protein isolates. So there's no excess fat, cholesterol, or lactose to slow down your progress.
- Made with Advanced Hydrolyzed Whey Protein Isolates
- 30 Grams of Ultra-Pure Protein per Serving
- Nearly 9 Grams of Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine (BCAAs)
- Includes Patent-Pending ACTITOR Peptides
- Just 5mg Cholesterol
- Contains Digestive Enzymes for Enhanced Utilization*
- Instantized to Mix Easily with a Spoon
ON's MOST VALUABLE MUSCLE BUILDING PROTEIN YET
By combining the absolute finest ingredients with a series of highly specialized processing techniques Optimum Nutrition (ON) has created its most valuable muscle building protein yet. Everything about Platinum Hydrowhey® was designed with an uncompromising attitude toward performance - both in the gym and your shaker cup.
Platinum Hydrowhey® is protein in its purest expression. It's made only with hydrolyzed whey proteins that have been isolated to remove the excess lactose, cholesterol, carbohydrates, and fat. The result is a product that's ultra-pure and packed with protein to support muscle growth and maintenance.
FEED YOUR MUSCLES
100% of the proteins in Platinum Hydrowhey® are hydrolyzed to varying degrees. Hydrolyzing is a process through which intact proteins are strategically broken down into smaller fragments, called peptides, which may be easier to utilization by your body. ON's exclusive combination of mild, moderate, and ultra-hydrolyzed proteins provides di-, tri-, and oligo-peptides while retaining select microfractions naturally found in whey. If this is too much technical talk, all that you really need to understand is that Platinum Hydrowhey® is ideal first thing in the morning, before workouts, and immediately after workouts when your hard-working muscles benefit most from a hydrolyzed protein.
THE BEST MADE EVEN BETTER
All proteins are made up of amino acids, but not all amino acids are of equal importance. The three branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) are particularly beneficial for athletes because they are bioligically involved with protein synthesis. That's why ON enhanced every serving of Platinum Hydrowhey® with added BCAAs for a total of over 8,800 mg per scoop which may assist protein with muscle building benefits.
PRECIOUS ON THE PALATE TOO
The only way to reap the results of Platinum Hydrowhey® is to drink it. So from the outset, ON benchmarked the taste and mixibility against the best protein powders on the market. Regardless of whether you choose Turbo Chocolate or Velocity Vanilla, Platinum Hydrowhey® tastes as great as it works and dissolves easily in water, milk, or juice.
STACK THE GAINS
Try using complementary nutrients and mixing in other performance supplements to boost the functionality of your Platinum Hydrowhey® shakes.
EXAMPLE SIZE & STRENGTH STACK
Morning: Platinum Hydrowhey® shake + Opti-Men. Why? Your body needs vitamins and minerals to effectively use protein, carbohydrate, and fat.
Before Workouts: Platinum Hydrowhey® mixed with skim milk + Micronized Creatine powder. Why? Hundreds of clinical studies suggest creatine monohydrate's ability to boost physical performance during short-term, high intensity workouts. Creatine benefits obtained with a daily consumption of 3g.
After Workouts: Platinum Hydrowhey® mixed with iced coffee + Glycomaize + Glutamine Powder. Why? At no other time throughout the day are your muscles as receptive to nutrients as they are post-workout. So during this window support your hard work with a quality protein to promote muscle growth and help maintain all the muscle you have already earened!
Before Bed: Gold Standard 100% Casein + Instantized BCAA 5000 powder. Why? Whey proteins are beneficial during the day while you are active. But, casein is better at night. Casein proteins and BCAAs help protect maintain your hard earned muscle tissue throughout the night while you sleep.
