Golden FinisH™ FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
What is Golden FinisH™ ?
Golden FinisH: Optimized Postworkout Recovery Complex
- Nutrient Rich
- Rapid Absorption
- Precisely Flavored
- Clinically Proven Anabolic Enzyme System
- Sugar Free
- 14g BCAA / EAA Per Serving
- Aminogen and Carbogen
- Optimal Growth, Nutrient Timing, and Amino Acid Assimilation
- Enhanced Insulin Regulation
- Muscle Glycogen Replenishment
The perfect FinisH to your intense workout, Golden FinisH has been formulated specifically for the serious athlete. Research and development indicates that this nutrient rich formula will aid recovery and help stabilize blood sugar levels to avoid the post-workout "crash". By shuttling nutrients, electrolytes, and amino acids into muscle cells we are able to stimulate muscle groups more often for optimal growth.
Golden Protein Complex:
With Hydrolyzed Whey and Whey Isolate providing immediate and sustained amino acid delivery, we enhanced this complex with additional Leucine (the anabolic trigger). With Dicalcium Phosphate from our GFH Complex, the result is a mild tasting, highly effective, optimal recovery product that is easy on the stomach, and doesn't break the bank.
Anabolic Enzyme System:
To take this recovery and growth formula to the next level, we included the clinically proven anabolic enzyme system Aminogen and Carbogen. The result is more efficient utilization of key nutrients during the key post-workout recovery window, helping to trigger anabolism legally and naturally.
CoriCARB and Inulin for Nutrient Shuttling and Enhanced Insulin Regulation:
Our unique and proprietary sugar-free blend of premium, nutrient rich carbohydrate sources enhanced with Inulin will help the serious athlete replenish muscle glycogen and help shuttle amino acids / nutrients into the muscles while blood flow is optimal without the post-workout "crash" associated with other products on the market.
For optimal post-workout cellular anabolism, look no further than our GFH Complex. We included crucial Electrolytes and Taurine to work in synergy, keeping your muscles in an anabolic state at the cellular level and for as long as possible. As a bonus, it appears that this complex may even help reduce muscle cramping and unnecessary soreness.

What makes Golden FinisH™ different from other products ?
Responding to feedback from our current customers, Golden FinisH™ contains nutrient rich carbs and is designed for optimal mixability, stackability, and also to be easy on the stomach
What are BCAA's ?
Branched Chain Amino Acids
Branched chain amino acids (BCAA's) are of special importance for athletes because they are metabolized in the muscle, rather than in the liver. These aminos can either be used to build new proteins or as fuel to produce energy.
What are EAA's ?
Essential Amino Acids
This is where people often get confused, because the EAA's include BCAA's... and then some. Unlike non-essential amino acids, the Essential Amino Acids cannot be "synthesized" by the body in "optimal" quantities for the bodybuilder / athlete. There are 9 essential amino acids: histidine, isoleucine, leucine, threonine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, tryptophan, and valine.
Doesn't Purple WRAATH™ also include BCAA / EAA ?
Yes, ideally the serious athlete will take 1-2 scoops Purple WRAATH™ pre-workout or during training and 1 serving of Golden FinisH™ immediately post-workout.
Does Golden FinisH™ replace proper nutrition, training, and cardio ?
Is Golden FinisH™ for men or women ?
Is Golden FinisH™ for pre-cardio or pre-workout ?
No, it is specifically designed for POST-workout
Does Golden FinisH™ replace whey protein ?
No, but it can replace your current post-workout shake
Why isn't there any creatine in Golden FinisH™?
Creatine supplements, like Green MAGnitude or Green Bulge are best taken preworkout and supply a full days worth of creatine, more creatine would simply be wasted
Is Golden FinisH™ sugar free?
How much water should be used with Golden FinisH™?
It depends on how thick you like your smoothie. 20 ounces of water gives you a nice thick smoothie and 30-40 ounces for a thinner shake that is lighter tasting
Are there any digestion aids in Golden FinisH™?
Yes, we included the patented Carbogen and Aminogen ingredients to aid in the digestion of the protein and carbohydrates in the formula
How many grams of EAA and BCAA are in a serving of Golden FinisH™?
There is roughly 14 grams, not including conditionally essential amino acids
I have allergies, should I avoid this product?
Those people with allergies to milk, corn, rice or other food allergies should not consume Golden FinisH™
What "basic" supplements do you recommend while taking Golden FinisH™ ?
Orange TRIAD Multivitamin/Joint Support/Digestion & Immune Aid
Creatine, such as Green BULGE / Green MAGnitude
Whey Protein / Blend (as needed throughout the day)
PLENTY of water
Fishoil / EFA
Besides the "basic" supplements listed above, what other supplements do you recommend to maximize my results while on Golden FinisH™ ?
GlycerGrow (during training)
White FLOOD (preworkout) / White BLOOD (pre-workout or before bed)
Red ACID (pre-workout) during a fatloss / cutting phase
Why didn't Controlled Labs include Glutamine in Golden FinisH™ ?
Great question !!
We could have included it, but we wanted to give the consumer the best "bang-for-buck" and glutamine POWDER simply isn't necessary or essential. If you want glutamine (for whatever reason) you can pick some up for $20 per kilo (1000g) to stack with Golden FinisH™

It looks like for a post-WO formula it falls a bit low on carbs (or atleast the amount I shoot for). Part of the basis of this product is that it is fast absorbed, so would you recommend only WMS/dex or maltodex if we wanted to up the carbs with the shake? I personally use slow-carbs right now PWO, and don't usually mix the two, and was just wondering your thoughts on adding extra carbs to this

I can't find any published studies on aminogen. Aside from a couple of unpublished lab dish reports featured on it, there doesn't look to be any research on Aminogen. In vitro reports are far from studies with humans, and these reports that are featured on it are not published in any reputable scientific journal. This is further reason why I am skeptical about this it. The marketing claim that Aminogen eliminates the need for a hydrolyzed protein supplement is not substantiated by human clinical or performance research. What are your thoughts?

Why are you using whey concentration? I was thinking of logging it as I had applied but I am lactose intolerante and can not take any wpc or mpc. I know WPC is a lot cheeper price wise compared to WPI and MPI so if that is the only reason I can understand. I would like to know if a rep can let me know.
I had this book marked in my mail. Some one sent me once.
Is there a difference between Whey Isolate and Whey Concentrate?
The difference between the two is actually quite large. Whey protein
isolate contains 90% or more of pure whey protein and is its most
highly concentrated form. Whey concentrate, on the other hand,
typically contains only 15-59% of pure whey protein and also is known
to possess additional fats and lactate within its formula. The
difference in price between whey isolate and whey concentrate will be
apparent to any buyer in the market for a protein supplement. While
some may want to save money and invest in concentrate, the money kept
is simply a trade off for a more than likely inferior protein product
and can do more damange to you than good.

Why not use partially hydrolized whey isolation instead of partially hydrolized whey concentrate? I still have bad reaction with any wpc how ever its manufactured. Maybe I will be proven wrong if i Log it but the only way to know is trying it I guess. I just know every wpc mpc iv used got me bloated etc bad reactions stuffed nose etc.

I work at a Vitamin Shoppe. Yeah, I know. But we're not commission based like GNC. Most of the people at my store lift regularly and live a healthy lifestyle.
We do carry white flood, purple wraath, green magnatude/bulge, blackhole, and I think we carry white blood.
It'd be nice to see this, orange triad, and the rest of the line show up in store.

I saw the drama thread on bb.com about the carb sources used for this and I am less concerned as I think corn and rice sources are sufficient, but I would like to know if it is a simple or complex carb source just so I know what type of carbs I am going to need in my next meal. If you can't say you can't say and I am fine with that as the product is labeled properly.

Wow...How did you pick this name?. Was Golden Shower taken??.
Hahaha!. All kiding aside this product is not for me, but I will continue to use Orange Triad.

I am a highly-advanced obsessive-compulsive teenage bodybuilder and I really need to know what the carb sources are. I think 25g of sugar can make or break one's physique and although there is no sugar in GFH I really need to know. My body reads labels, overanalyzes them to death, and responds accordingly [to the labels, that is, not the content]. Please answer my question.
Seriously though, how behooving of a male is that?
Nice product, CL!

I think simple carbs are ideal immediately post workout, so I wouldn't be all that concerned about the source being complex.
I like to get my dextrose in post workout, and would normally save complex carbs for the next meal or two, when your body can differentiate better and put it to good use.
Right after a workout, I believe the body will simply store simple carbs as glycogen and spike insulin, which is generally not frowned up at that time.

This stuff looks like it could easily be the best formula on the market depending on what the carbs are, cant wait to hear feedback.
