Review by Anonymous on Oct 4, 2022
Tastes good and works well in smoothies.


Review by Fran Mc on Oct 4, 2022
I'm 59 and started exercising as the pandemic re allowed the gyms to reopen. From exercising 4 days a week, augmented with whey and amino acids from Optimum, I have lost my old friend that hung around my waist. When I forget to take my supplements, I definitely feel the difference. With the amino acids, my energy is much higher, and with the whey, my recover and mass is noticeable. Supplements are a magic bullet, but with the hard work and proper diet that includes the supplements, the results are obvious. Just for kicks, add a crushed basil leaf to the chocolate whey. It sound gross, but it's really good.

Great product!

I have really enjoyed this product. It does not have the aftertaste of a protein shake and is very tasty. I recommend this product to others.

Breakfast substitute

Review by Rey on Oct 1, 2022
One scoop in the morning and I'm good till lunch time. That's a good 5 hours of not feeling hungry. Helps to maintain desired weight.

The best.

Never changed!

Review by Anonymous on Sep 30, 2022
Always used this protein, wouldn't want to change! Tastes just as good with water as it does milk, and they got flavs for days!

Mixes well

Review by Mark on Sep 29, 2022
Vanilla flavor goes well with milk and bananas or avocados, good combo.

Protein that is versatile

Review by Brett Jones on Sep 29, 2022

Good all
