About Optimum Nutrition Optimum Nutrition, Inc. (ON) is a wholly owned subsidiary of Glanbia, a leading international cheese and nutritional ingredients group. ON owns and operates two brands of nutritional supplements (Optimum Nutrition and American Body Building) providing a comprehensive line of products across multiple categories. With state-of-the-art production facilities occupying over 500,000 square feet of operating space, ON is the only sports nutrition company to manufacture items in every product category. Whether it's nutritional bars, protein powders, ready-to-drink sports beverages, or vitamins, essential minerals, and herbs, Optimum Nutrition is able to control the integrity of all products through in-house manufacturing. Supported by Costello's Health Distributors (Optimum Nutrition's sister distribution company) and ABB's nationwide direct service distribution network, customers are ensured prompt delivery and unmatched customer support.
History Optimum Nutrition was founded in 1986 by brothers Tony and Michael Costello. Originally known as Costello's Health Distributors, the entrepreneurial brothers soon recognized an opportunity in the need for significantly improved quality and innovative vision in the sports nutrition industry. The Optimum Nutrition brand was launched to satisfy both demands, and after 22 years of success reflected in great part by the ongoing best-selling status of ON Gold Standard 100% Whey, the Costello's entered into agreement to sell the company to the international cheese and nutritional ingredients group Glanbia.
Mission Statement Optimum Nutrition strives to produce distinctive, affordable, premium-quality products while making every effort to anticipate ever-changing customer needs and meet the demands of a dynamic market with innovative products, effective support materials, and unsurpassed service.
Affordability As an advocate of healthy lifestyles, ON believes that every consumer should be able to purchase premium products; so we eliminate the middlemen and control the integrity of our brand throughout the entire production and distribution processes… making sure each product is not just top quality, but also among the most competitively priced in the industry.
Quality Counts Their commitment to quality is evident throughout the entire product development process. Before a single machine is turned on we carefully select vendors who supply premium raw materials. All vendors must provide a Certificate of Analysis for each raw material as a continued measure of quality. These certificates are then verified through random in-house and independent laboratory testing. Highly sophisticated equipment confirms the purity and potency of every ingredient on our labels. To further diminish any chance of physical, chemical, and microbiological contaminants, we have established and implemented our own Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) program. Quality assurance professionals make routine checks on all storage, blending, and production areas and conduct final inspections daily. Together, these procedures allow Optimum Nutrition to constantly deliver first-rate sports nutrition supplements under the strictest quality control standards known as current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs).
Customer Satisfaction From the beginning, their customers have been their number one priority. While strict quality control, lab testing, and manufacturing under tightly controlled conditions are all very important, they are all done for one reason – to bring you high quality, affordable supplements. They pride ourselves on customer loyalty and are pleased to report that nearly all of our first-time customers become devoted patrons. You can be confident that from the moment a product is conceived to the moment it leaves our facility we put only the best into Optimum Nutrition so you only put the best into your body.
Spoon Stirred: Pro Complex APS is instantized. That means if you forgot your shaker cup or don't have time to get out the blender, you can just add 2 rounded scoops of Pro Complex APS to a glass filled with 8-12 oz. of water, nonfat milk or your favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon. Stir for about 20 seconds or until powder is completely dissolved.
Shaker: Bringing a shaker cup with you to the gym is the perfect way to get a hefty dose of protein immediately after your workout. Just add 2 rounded scoops of Pro Complex APS to your shaker cup and then pour in 8-12 ounces of your preferred beverage. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. TIP: Mixing 2 rounded scoops with 6-8 fl. oz. of nonfat milk instead of water will give you a thicker, creamier shake.
Blender: Add 2 rounded scoops of Pro Complex APS powder to a blender filled with 8-12 fl. oz. of water, nonfat milk, or your favorite beverage. Add several ice cubes and mix on highest speed for 45-60 seconds.

People think its expensive but you get what you pay for. A great blend that is bcaa heavy and contains fast and intermediate digesting proteins that let you get the most out of your workouts. Taste is just ok. Still highly recommended.
