Nitro Core 24Before I was aware of all the money I could be saving by shopping at, I bought almost all of my protein, creatine, and other supplements at GNC. The power of the Gold Card was burning a hole in my pocket. (Ed. Note: You should never have to prepay for a card to get “deals”).

So earlier this year I walked into a GNC and bought a discounted 3 lb. tub of Nitro Core 24, and then got a second one half off. Here are the facts:

  • 24 Grams Of Premium Blended Protein Per Scoop
  • 200 calories per serving (1 scoop)
  • 10 Distinct Protein Sources Provide Sustained-Release Action For A.M./P.M. Coverage
  • 5 Grams Of Dietary Fiber To Help Keep You Full Longer
  • Lipid Blend Supplies 4 Grams Of Omega 3,6 And 9 Fatty Acids Plus MCT’s
  • Enzyme Fortified For Easier Digestion And Absorption

Nitro Core 24 utilizes the “Power of 10”, that is, including 10 different types of protein. By consuming a blended protein powder combining faster, intermediate, and slower absorbing protein sources, blended┬áproteins give you a more sustained protein digestion than single-source┬áproteins like whey, casein, or egg. Here is the breakdown:

Hydrolyzed Whey Peptides FASTER
Ion-Exchange Whey Protein Isolate
Cross-Flow Microfiltered Whey Protein Isolate
Unfiltered Whey Protein Concentrate
Glutamine Peptides
Milk Protein Isolate
Ultrafiltered Milk Protein Concentrate
Micellar Casein SLOWER
Calcium Caseinate

Taste: I tried the vanilla and the strawberry. I’ve had a hard time finding a tasty vanilla protein, and although this wasn’t great-tasting, it wasn’t bad either. Same goes for the strawberry. Pretty much what I’ve come to expect in the taste department.

Value: I got a kickass deal because the stuff expired in three months and they needed to sell it. However, if I walked into GNC right now, well, first off they would be closed. But more importantly, they’d be selling it for $40. At, they are selling Nitro Core 24 for $25. With shipping, that is a solid $10 savings. And with all the proteins that The Core is packing, that is a good deal.

Effectiveness: I doubled up the serving size and had 2 scoops (400 calories) for breakfast and post-workout. In about 3 weeks, I had packed on 5 lbs. and hit 170 lbs for the first time in my life.

Overall: 4 1/2 plates out of 5
