- Hydrolyzed Whey Protein Isolates for Ultra-Fast Digestion
- 30 Grams of Protein Per Serving
- A Full of 8.8 Grams of the BCAAs
- Zero Sugar – Zero Cholesterol
This is the fastest digesting protein Optimum has ever made! The secret is the process of hydrolyzing – this process takes larger protein molecules and breaks them down into smaller protein molecules, allowing them to digest and absorb much more rapidly.
To improve this cutting edge protein, even more, we included micronized BCAAs for superior absorption and digestive enzymes to enhance the digestive process.
When the name on the container is Optimum Nutrition, being fast is not enough. Platinum Hydrowhey is made with hydrolyzed whey protein isolates, it’s so pure, it contains ZERO sugar, ZERO cholesterol and ONLY 1 gram of fat! With Platinum Hydrowhey, Optimum has created the best protein yet and this product was designed with superior quality and performance in mind. The result is a protein that's super-pure, rapidly digested, and loaded with anabolic amino acids.
SPEED OF ABSORPTION
The proteins in Platinum Hydrowhey are hydrolyzed – this is a process through which proteins are broken down into smaller, more easily digestible, short amino acid chains known as peptides, this leads to faster digestion and absorption. Optimum utilizes different degrees of hydrolysis, such as: mild, moderate, and ultra-this results in di-, tri-, and oligo-peptide chains while at the same time retaining specific microfractures that occur naturally in whey protein.
So what does all this mean? The main thing it’s important to understand is that Platinum Hydrowhey is the best protein choice first thing in the morning, before and right after your workouts – the three primary times your muscles benefit the most from a fast-acting protein source.
WE’VE MADE THE BEST EVEN BETTER
Protein is made of amino acids, typically referred to as the building blocks of protein - but it’s important to note that amino is not all equally important, for example, the BCAAs are of higher importance to bodybuilders and other athletes. The reason for this is that they have a direct impact on protein synthesis – especially leucine – and they promote recovery as well as act as an anti-catabolic. For this reason, Platinum Hydrowhey contains a massive 8.8 grams of BCAAs per serving!
THIS MAY BE THE BEST TASTING PROTEIN SHAKE YOU’VE EVER HAD!
You’re not going to get the benefits of Platinum Hydrowhey if you can’t stand the taste. Optimum compared Hyrdowhey’s taste against every other protein on the market – you’ll find this product mixes easy and stands up to the best when it comes to taste.
LOOKING FOR GAINS? HERE’S THE STACK THAT’LL GET YOU THERE!
Optimum Nutrition has put together an example size and strength stack. This is an exclusive stack - if you’re looking for gains, here’s the place to start.
Morning: Start the day with a Platinum Hydrowhey shake. Take a serving of Opti-Men with breakfast. Protein at this time is critical because you just came off a short fast – when was the last time you ate? Break-the-fast with a protein shake and take Opti-Men –why? Health insurance!
Before Workouts: Platinum Hydrowhey mixed with skim milk + Micronized Creatine Powder. Why? Research validates the effectiveness of creatine when it comes to size and strength. Combining creatine with protein and a carb source increases muscle uptake.
After Workouts: Platinum Hydrowhey mixed with an iced coffee + Glutamine Powder. This is an interesting combination! Here’s the logic: this is the time when your muscles are most receptive to nutrients. The combination of fast-acting proteins, free form amino acids, and fast-digesting carbs supplies the raw materials needed for rebuilding and restoration. Newer research indicates that some caffeine can promote greater glycogen resynthesis, helping you to get ready for your next workout.
Bedtime: Gold Standard 100% Casein + Instantized BCAA 5000 Powder. While a fast-digesting protein makes sense during the day is beneficial, the opposite is true at night when you sleep. Casein proteins and BCAAs preserve muscle tissue during the night when you’re sleeping.
