Health benefits at a glance: 

It’s important to maintain muscle mass, and after strength training and sports performance, your body uses protein to help repair and maintain muscle fibers. If you are looking for a high-quality plant-based protein powder, Optimum Nutrition’s 100% Gold Standard Plant might be the perfect solution for you. 

Each serving of this pre- and post-workout supplement contains 24 grams of plant protein with a complete amino acid profile for muscle support and recovery. In other words, it’s an excellent protein shake mix for vegans and vegetarians

It can be a challenge to make plant-based powder taste good, but ON 100% Gold Standard Plant actually comes with a great chocolate flavor


Why it works: 

ON 100% Gold Standard Plant is made especially for active adults who care about what they eat and where their nutrients come from. It contains gluten-free and 100% vegan ingredients and provides a combination of pea and brown rice proteins.

Each serving of this plant protein blend (24 grams) includes 4 grams of naturally occurring glutamine and glutamic acid, perfect for muscle growth and muscle maintenance. Another 4 grams of these proteins are naturally occurring BCAAs, optimal for endurance and recovery. 

Along with the protein, each serving delivers over 100% of the nutrient reference value of vitamin C and is an excellent source of vitamin B12It also includes pomegranate juice powder. 

Since this protein powder is a convenient source of complete protein it isn’t just a beneficial supplement for athletes, vegetarians, and vegans, but also for older adults – as maintaining healthy muscle mass becomes more challenging with age. (1,2) 


The science behind the product: 

Complete amino acid profile 

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, which act like building blocks for the body. Intake of protein after a workout gives your muscles the amino acids necessary to recover and build. 

ON 100% Gold Standard Plant contains a combination of organic pea and brown rice proteins (24 grams per serving) that provides a complete profile of essential amino acids for strong muscle support. 

Branched-chain amino acids 

BCAAs are a group of three essential amino acids (L-leucine, L-isoleucine, and L-valine), and their main benefit is the ability to boost muscle growth. Research shows that BCAAs help to both maintain and grow muscle strength and endurance, support physical performance, and promote muscle recovery. (3,4) 

ON 100% Gold Standard Plant Nutrition offers 4 g of naturally occurring BCAAs. 

L-glutamine and l-glutamic acid 

L-glutamine (also called glutamine) is derived from L-glutamic acid, which is a non-essential amino acid abundant in your muscles. The levels of glutamine are reduced after intense exercise, and glutamine supplementation encourages recovery after a workout and helps inhibit protein breakdown in muscle tissue. (5-18) 

Additionally, supplementing with glutamine has been shown to have a beneficial effect on immune function after strenuous exercise. (9) 

ON 100% Gold Standard Plant Nutrition provides 4 grams of glutamine and glutamic acid

Vitamins and pomegranate 

  • Vitamin C: Among many other benefits vitamin C is vital for tissue development and cell growth, which makes vitamin C-rich foods or supplementation perfect after exercise. (10) 
  • B12: This vitamin helps metabolize protein, which goes directly into the muscles. (11) 
  • Pomegranate juice powder: Studies show that pomegranate has the potential to enhance endurance, strengthen performance, and improve post-workout recovery by conferring antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects and improving cardiovascular responses during and following exercise. (12) 

Certifications 

ON 100% Gold Standard Plant has been approved by Vegan Society and is Informed Choice certified. 

Moreover, this plant-based protein powder is gluten-free and contains no artificial flavors or colors.
