Sendo a minha primeira compra internacional e pela HD, fui muito bem atendido desde o momento da compra até a entrega do produto. Comprei um Whey da Optimum Nutrition, Extreme Milk Chocolate 2 lb (912 g) e ele chegou dentro das especificações, sem nenhuma avariação. Demorou 15 dias desde a compra até a entrega na minha casa! Estou muito satisfeito com a HD. Farei novas compras em breve.

    Confio na marca, confio no resultado do produto. Me ajuda atingir meus resultados.

    Já experimentei diversas proteinas e posso dizer, que me sinto melhor com esta.

    Se dissolve muito bem e os sabores de morango e chocolate são ótimos.

    Quase 25g de proteína por scoop e uma boa quantia de BCAAs e Glutamina. Não tenho nada de mal a apontar a este produto.

  • Good product, 9 out of 10

    Posted by Danny on March 9, 2014
    This really is a gold standard product. Whey protein is probably the most supplemented product in anyone's diet, whether looking to Lean Out, drop body fat, build muscle, or just plain bulk up. There are so many different brands of Whey's out there, this is the one that seems to be the best-of-all-worlds.
    - Shipping Method: i chose was Global Priority Mail by DHL... it took about 25 days to arrive at my home which is the average time it takes. For those like me who doesn't live in USA must do a good control of when to reorder so you don’t run out of whey protein while you wait the next order to arrive at your home.
    - Price/Quality: It is high quality, gets the job done, is the right price for what you pay for. Taste: It really depends on what you like. I've had a few flavors and despise and others I love. Although not as good tasting as Syntha-6, but if it were, it probably wouldn't be as healthy either. Taste is kinda weak, but like I said, if it tasted any better--it's probably doing more harm than good.I just want everybody to know that if you don't like the first flavor you try, give a different flavor a shot. Some people have different preferences, so what I may like, you may be disgusted by and vice-verse. It's all up to what you like most. I for one never dare touch fruit flavored whey whereas others really enjoy them. Just give a few flavors a chance.
    - Overall, this product manages to hit the target in the quality, effectiveness, and value departments, while getting taste in there as well, and also comes in a plethora of flavors for anyone. If fits the budget for most and does its job.______________________________________________________________________________________

    Este de fato realmente é um produto padrão-ouro. Whey protein é provavelmente o suplemento mais usado na dieta de qualquer pessoa, seja para construir o músculo ou emagrecer ou simplesmente melhorar sua saúde. Há tantas marcas diferentes de Whey no mercado , e esse é o que parece ser um dos melhores de todos.
    - Método de envio: que eu escolhi foi o Global Priority Mail by DHL... Demorou cerca de 20 dias para chegar na minha casa o que não é mau de todo. Para aqueles que como eu, não vive nos EUA é necessário fazer um bom controle de quando devemos pedir o próximo produto para não acabarmos ficando sem whey protein, enquanto você espera a próxima encomenda chegar. Geralmente quando chego na metade do pote eu ja faço outro pedido no site do Iherb.
    - Preço / Qualidade: É de alta qualidade, entrega o que promete, tem um preço justo pelo o que você paga. Sabor: Realmente depende do que você gosta. Provei alguns sabores que não gostei e outros que eu amei. Não é tão gostoso como Syntha-6 , mas se fosse , ele provavelmente não seria tão saudável também. Gosto não é o ponto forte, mas como eu disse, se fosse mais gostoso provavelmente não seria tão saudável. Quero que todos saibam que, se você não gostou do primeiro sabor que provou, dê uma chance a um sabor diferente. Algumas pessoas têm preferências diferentes, então que eu gostar você pode não gostar e vice -versa. Eu, pelo menos nunca compraria um com sabor de frutas, enquanto conheço outras pessoas que realmente amam estes sabores. Basta dar a alguns sabores uma chance.
    - No geral, este produto consegue acertar o alvo no quesito qualidade , eficácia, e valor (preço), e gosto de também , e também vem em uma infinidade de sabores para todos os tipos de gostos. Cabe no orçamento para a maioria das pessoas e cumpre o que promete.

  • perfect

    Posted by alan on September 5, 2013
    Ooops! So Whey Protein Gold Standart of Optimum Nutrition won best supplement of the year several times and is still champion sale

    The packaging is pretty Optimum Whey Protein and enhanced, red and black have become a trademark and synonymous with quality. Upon opening the various seals, keeping the product very isolated, one realizes that the pot of 909g comes not complete, the pot has a little more than half filled. So if you bought the product and was shocked to open, do not worry, it is anyway.
    The solubility of Optimum Whey Protein is fantastic, one of the best ever I have seen. I use a cocktail shaker and mix Blender Bottle is great, not empedra, using milk or water.
    've Tasted various flavors of Whey Protein Optimum, and this is also a differential, there are many flavors. I'll talk specifically the Chocolate flavor, it is simply fantastic, not get seasick, is not sweet nor bitter, is perfect. Can choose it without fear, especially for those who love chocolate.
    Among all the whey protein we've ever tasted (there were many), Whey Protein Optimum was what gave me the best results, both in strength as the mass gain as well as muscle recovery.
    In short, Optimum Whey Protein Gold Standard is the best I've consumed, and it is difficult to change it. All aspects of the product are cool, from packing up the results.

  • Excellent flavor, mix, and quality

    Posted by h4xit on April 4, 2014
    Optimum Nutrition has been one of my favorite brands for the past few years and their Gold Standard protein is something I always have in the cupboard. While I usually have the french vanilla creme, I thought I would branch out and try the chocolate. Much to my surprise - the flavor is excellent, I'd give it a 8/10. As usual, this protein mixes super easy and I have never had any clumps or anything. I use a blender bottle to mix it up, but I doubt that you would have trouble with even just using a spoon. As far as how well it works - I notice that my recovery time is much quicker than without it. I usually can find this applies to recovery from anything - from weight lifting, to cycling, to snowboarding. The protein works best when taken during/after a workout and ensures that my muscles are ready to rock another day. All in all, this protein is great for anyone and I would highly recommend it. Its taste, value, and high quality is something you cannot beat. Additional props to health designs for quick shipping and good customer service!

  • the best whey? maybe

    Posted by Pierry on June 3, 2013
    I am a value shopper and want the most bang for the buck. In a world that tries to push you with every stupid supplement known to man with the main goal of walking out of a store with 10 tiny bottles in your hands and missing 400$ i want to advocate for a powder that tackles at least 7 out of the 10 bottles in one scoop.

    Where else can you buy a product that acts as a precursor amino, intra workout and post workout in the same scoop. The amino profile is designated to do just this and reduce the amount of bottles of supplements bought by 70%.

  • very good

    Posted by luan on October 17, 2013
    I'm just another one here praising this great whey which is one of the best there is that whey is the top most of all both in taste and satiety absorption recovery it is perfect for those wanting this definition for its low index of carbohydrate and this dose of glutamine much help in the regeneration of muscle tissue because it is the most abundant amino acid in the human body that makes a lot of difference in a whey with this low cost

  • Very good shipping method

    Posted by Maureci Marcelo on February 24, 2014
    I'm very happy with HD shipping method. I'm from Brazil and the way HD makes the package (not putting full price on the label and excluding the shipping fee) really help us. Other companies just put the whole price (shipping fee included) than its not unusual for us to get taxed on the products (the tax is as high as 50% of the price), and with HD we usually dont get taxed at all.

  • Excellent

    Posted by Pega on June 23, 2013
    This protein is just awesome! I got some really good results with it..... with a good exercise program, i got 20 pounds of pure lean mass in 6 months of use. The flavor is not the best i've tried, but it is really good. The price and delivery from Healthdesigns.com are just as good as this excellent protein powder! It's a great option for Brazilian customers

  • Good, but not perfect.

    Posted by Siq (Brazil) on January 26, 2012
    As people already know, this whey protein is a market icon. The ON gold standard whey is well known by the athletes. It mixes very well, works fast, has an excellent value and tastes good.

    However, the Extreme Milk Chocolate flavor has a really strong artificial smell. Next time I'm trying the Double Rich Chocolate 'cause I can't stand more of that smell.
