Product Review: GNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein

Sunday, March 30, 2014

     Happy Sunday! Here's a review of another top-selling GNC product that I'm sure gym buffs out there will surely love. Eat clean, go to the gym and look mean! But this mantra isn't complete because you still need to take supplements designed to help you build muscle and give you extra energy during workout.  I presume gym enthusiasts already know different brands of whey protein supplements available in the market today. Some are effective but with a higher price tag while some give same results at a cheaper price. So when I visited the GNC  SM North The Block store last February, I was surprised that when I saw a GNC brand whey protein. I'm not new to whey protein because the hubby already have tired three different brands before. He's working out seriously three to five times a week and I've seen his progress not only because of the eat clean and go to the gym routine. He's also incorporating whey protein supplement and other vitamins to help him build healthy muscle. 

     No pain, no gain! This is so true because staying fit and healthy is hard to achieve if you're not 100% dedicated to what you are doing. This is lifestyle. The food and health supplements you take inside your body will not give you instant muscle overnight or in just a span of one month. Once you've started your journey to healthy living, you will see positive results in six months based on the hubby's progress. He took this whey protein supplement for 14 days straight and even though he didn't saw drastic change in his muscle shape, he still give this whey protein a thumbs up because of the positive effects he experienced before and after workouts. Wanna know why GNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein should be your next gym buddy? Click CONTINUE READING to see the complete details of this 100% whey protein goodness!
GNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein
Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein supplies one of the highest quality and most researched proteins available.

The Benefits of Whey Protein
     Protein serves as a dietary source of amino acids. The body needs amino acids to build the various proteins used in the growth, repair and maintenance of body tissues such as skin, bones and muscles.
GNC Pro Performance® 100% Whey Protein
     Whey protein offers the benefits of supplying high nutritional value and branched chain amino acids (BCAA) to athletes. BCAA are essential amino acids, which are part of muscle protein. They may preserve muscle glycogen stores and help reduce the amount of protein breakdown during exercise. Additionally, the natural components of whey help to enhance the body's production of glutathione, a natural antioxidant, which may provide dietary support to the immune system Whey also yields a high biological value, which measures usable grams of amino acids used by the body after intense exercise.

     Depending on your athletic goals, your protein requirements can vary. Inadequate protein in your diet can limit muscle protein synthesis which can compromise your athletic goals. The amino acids from whey protein move quickly through the digestive system. The consumption of these proteins will result in a rapid rise in blood amino acids and stimulate protein synthesis.

     Whey protein can be taken immediately before and/or after your workout to support muscle protein synthesis.

DISCLAIMER: This product was sent to me by GNC Live Well Philippines for review. All the views expressed here are based on my husband's experience and honest opinion about the product.


  1. Hi Ms. Kath! Is GNC products are available already at drugstores? I wanna try their prducts and I'm very curious about it because of ur reviews! :)) Would love to try this one for my papa. He would definitely love this! :)

    1. It's available at all GNC stores nationwide. Some Puregold branches also carry selected GNC products. I also saw some at Fisher Mall supermarket. Yes, please recommend this to your father I'm sure he'll definitely like it :)

  2. I have not tried that before, but my eldest son and his cousin are a big fan of such drinks. Well, after a few months of work out and with this drink, I have seen a great difference. I think that is is really a great product.

    1. Hi Jenny, thank you so much for sharing their experiences. Since they've been working out for months and drinking this during workouts I'm really sure that GNC Whey Protein contributed a lot in that difference.

  3. Great review! This ones a bit pricey lang but I believe almost all of the whey protien that's available sa market is really a tad pricey. Will show this review sa mga male cousins ko. :)

    1. Hi Kenny, yes I agree with you about the prices pero napansin ko same range halos lahat ng brand. The only difference is the taste and the "hiyang" factor. Thanks for recommending my review. Hope they'll see a difference once they've tried this.

  4. Seems like a nice product,will definitely going to taste this.You just made another nice review here.Thanks for this.

    1. Yes, it's a very nice product. Hope you can try this one. Thank you!

  5. Right now I'm into a protein diet (only meat and yogurt) and I think I want to try this product too. Especially, that is a food supplement and this is great to drink something else then yogurt. $30 is not so much for my health :)

    1. Wow! I'm sure you're building some nice muscles there :) Yes, I highly recommend this product. Hope this is available in your place, spending a certain amount for the good of one's health is not too much :)

  6. This really help especially to those building up muscles.

    1. Thanks for the expert opinion sir Franc.

  7. nice review,. sayang nga lang kasi may soy beans pala, hindi pwede kay hubby dahil may allergy sya,.

    1. aww, too bad :( at least you know yung ingredients nito it's better safe than sorry right?

  8. Will these drinks have benefits also if you do not do weights training in a gym?

    1. Hello, thanks for asking but I'm not 100% sure on that. Since this is a muscle juice, muscle builder I think the best way to see the effect is to go to the gym and do weight training or training that requires muscle movement.

    2. If the goal is to build muscle you'll have to lift weights and basically work out to gain muscle, drinking protein shakes in general will supplement muscle growth. But remember it's 30% workout 70% diet abs are made in the kitchen and torn in the gym. If your goal is to lean out you may still take this in conjunction to your workout and diet. Remember this is not meant to be a meal replacement as it can also damage the liver.

    3. Thank you so much dear for answering. I really appreciate it!

  9. Personally love this product as well but I might give the soy protein from gnc a shot since it's gluten free as it's soy based. Protein shakes in general are supplements so it's not meant to be taken everyday ( unless one works out everyday which isn't recommended coz the body needs rest to build muscles) misusage of any protein shake or bars can also damage one's liver as well. Over all protein shakes are awesome but it's better to eat solids like chicken breast since 1 chicken breast is already equivalent to 20g of protein.

    1. Thanks dear :) I know you do your research well and I can see there's a big improvement on your muscle. You can achieve the VS body anytime! I know how disciplined you are when it comes to training. Thank you very much for sharing your insights!

  10. Hi kath! How many servings does your husband take per day? Aside from taking whey protein, does he also incorporate other nourishment into his diet that's rich in protein like eggs or whatnot? What's his body type? Thanks! You have such an insightful blog!

    1. Hello, he's taking this before and after workout. Meron kasi sya pre-workout meal and after workout meal. yes, he's eating hard boiled egg whites lang. He's also more on fish like tuna, salmon and mackerel. Around 3-5 a day. Wala na sya supplement aside dito kasi yung Amino Acid tablets may side effect sa kanya na bacne. Meron lang sya yung multivitamins. Thank you so much.

  11. hi Kath ask ko lang kung ilang days bago maubos ung whey ng hub mo? Thank you :)
