THE TRUE STRENGTH OF WHEY
Whey Protein Isolates (WPI) are the purest form of whey protein that currently exists.
WPIs are costly to use, but the rate among the best proteins that money can buy.
That’s why they’re the first ingredient you read on the Gold Standard 100% Whey™ label.
By using WPI as the primary ingredient along with premium ultra-filtered whey protein concentrate (WPC), we’re able to pack 24 grams of protein into every serving to support your muscle-building needs after training. Optimum Nutrition attention to detail also extends to mixability.
This superior quality powder has been instantized to mix easily using a shaker cup or just a glass and a spoon. There’s no doubt that this is the standard by which all other whey proteins are measured.

PROMOTING FAT LOSS
Similar to the original ultra concentration formulation, a number of stimulants have been dialled up to help facilitate fat burning. Studies on Green Coffee bean extract, Evodiamine, Acetyl L-Carnitine HCl and Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) suggest that they can enhance fat oxidation and reduce fat mass ¹ ² ³ . A randomised, double-blind clinical study has provided scientific validation of green coffee bean functionality and recommended the safety of supplementation in healthy individuals ⁴.
A full spectrum of B-vitamins have been added to promote and support energy levels. They work to help the body use macronutrients (carbohydrates, fat and protein) for fuel and also play an important role in brain function. ⁵
In addition, Huperzine A has been found to significantly improve muscle contractions induced by nerve stimulation, leading to increased strength and performance ⁶. Oxyshred Hardcore also contains L-glutamine, an amino acid which promotes the release of natural human growth hormone and helps with lean muscle growth. ¹⁰
ENHANCING FOCUS AND MOOD
L-Tyrosine has been added due to its potential benefits in improving working memory, focus and coordination when exercising ⁷. For mood enhancing properties, studies have shown that Taurineand caffeine have proven to be very effective ⁸. In addition, Taurine can decrease feelings of anxiety and stress. This can switch on cognitive function, mood elevation and overall focus. Perfect for those who are on a caloric deficit diet to mitigate against brain fog and lethargy, and to ensure there is no post-peak crash or loss of focus.
BOOSTING IMMUNITY AND BALANCING BLOOD SUGAR
To promote immunity and wellness L-Glutamine, Vitamin C, B vitamins, and prebiotic fibre have been added. Vitamin C contributes to immune defence by supporting various cellular functions. Supplementation has shown to be effective in prevention and treatment of systemic infections ⁹. Research also suggests that L-glutamine has potential benefits of strengthening the immune system by inhibiting inflammatory responses. Findings show that L-glutamine supplementation may shorten the severity and length of flu-like infection ¹⁰.
In addition, Chromium Picolinate has been found to help balance blood sugar levels. Blood sugar levels impact energy, concentration, ability to lose weight, performance, and an imbalance can lead to rapid mood swings, increased cravings and insulin resistance. As insulin resistance is a cardiovascular and type 2 diabetes risk factor, prevention and management is considered of great importance ¹¹.
