Proteins are essential, one of the human body's most important nutrients. Protein and amino acid requirements for athletes are significantly higher than for those who are inactive. So athletes can benefit from supplementing with dietary protein. Arnold Iron Whey Protein is a high-quality formula that delivers large amounts of naturally-occurring amino acids the body needs daily. So why not trade up to a purer, more superior protein supplement that will help fuel your workout performance while also maximizing recovery time? When MusclePharm's world-renowned scientists teamed up with legendary fitness icon Arnold Schwarzenegger, they looked at how to bring a superior whey protein to market...and they knew the answer was "more." Specifically, they needed a higher protein formula to enhance nitrogen retention because muscles can only grow if a body retains more nitrogen. Most sports nutrition researchers agree that the most effective nitrogen source is whey protein. To fuel more lean muscle development, our ultra-micro filtered whey delivers naturally-occurring anabolic amino acids directly to your bloodstream. This spike in aminos creates the nitrogen-rich environment needed for muscle protein synthesis -the process that builds muscle

The Iron Whey, among other protein powders, has been identified as "protein spiked" in which the protein per serving reported on the label is not entirely true. How is this done? Well protein content is determined via nitrogen content into the product. So any easy way to increase "protein" in the product without increasing your production costs is to add other ingredients with a similar nitrogen profile. Vast articles can be found online if you care for more specifics.
In addition to this, this source of whey does not appear to be very filtered. Again, I'd recommend researching how whey is made for more specifics, but it is essentially derived from milk, in which filtration concentrates the protein and removes excess carbs and fats. As such, the best protein powders on the market contain an excess of 90% protein, with good quality ones in the 75-80% range. Protein spiking aside, assuming this product does indeed have 22g of protein per serving as stated, that's a protein ratio of 67.9%, clearly illustrating the lack of filtration. Considering the protein spiking, this ratio is realistically even lower.
As a huge fan of Arnold's bodybuilding legacy, I'm disappointed that he's allowed such a subpar product to bear his name.
For this price, there are much better powders that have not been protein spiked and have been processed with higher filtration.
I've had to touch up several rooms in my house because the most foul gas to leave my rectum has actually taken the paint off the walls. Gas so putrid and rank that the dog gags and goes to another room. If one were to give their spouse a Dutch oven the result could be death and a murder charge from the prosecutors office.
Other than that, I think it's a great whey protein.
-Good-quality whey protein.
-Inoffensive vanilla flavor. As someone with a discerning palate I can taste just a hint of chalky powder flavor, but I'm really nitpicking. My roommate is an incredibly picky eater and told me he didn't even realize there was protein powder in the shake I made for him until I told him what I'd put in it.
-Price isn't bad. I've seen a lot of people complaining the price has gone up, but I did a quick comparison around the shop and this powder is still reasonably priced compared to the competition.
-This isn't unique to this product, but I hate how protein powders come in giant jars when the product doesn't take up that much space. It's such a waste.
Overall, this is the best vanilla powder I've ever had. It doesn't add a lot of sugar, so you can better customize your shakes to your preference. It isn't as chalky as most, and it mixes well. It's everything you could ask for.
Note on gas:
Please be careful using protein supplements if you have an easily upset stomach. A lot of people dump two scoops of protein powder into a glass of milk and then wonder why they get gas. Think about it- you're actually consuming 240+ calories of pure protein, plus lactose if you're using milk, and whatever else you add to your shake. For a lot of recipes out there, you're consuming the equivalent of a 4-ounce steak followed by a scoop of ice cream. That would give a lot of people issues, regardless of what form they consume it in.
