Product Info

USN Hardcore Whey gH in an all-in-one whey protein for lean mass.

Gain Quality Mass

Unlike a Mass Gainer which gives approximately 400 – 500 calories per serving, this only has 140. This prevents you from putting too much fat on during your muscle increase development.

Each serving gives 26 grams of protein to repair and build muscle.

Increase Workout Strength

What makes this a lean mass gainer are the added ingredients which make this an ‘enhanced’ whey shake.

For an increase in power the Crea-Grow Power Stack is a blend of creatine monohydrate and taurine which gives you 2.7 grams of creatine per scoop.

Quick Recovery Time

Serious athletes train between 4 – 6 times per week. To be able to consistently workout at your best you need to recover properly from each gym session.

Glycogen is an important nutrient for lean muscle growth which may become depleted during intense training.

The Hypervol Glycotrans System is dextrose and glycine which helps to restore your glycogen levels when the shake is taken after exercise.

Complete Whey Protein

This is an all-in-one shake which combines tried and tested ingredients.

You don’t have to buy 2 or 3 products to get you started with your fitness journey, it contains the most popular supplements like creatine, tribulus terrestris and magnesium.

Affordable Lean Gainer

USN Hardcore Whey gH is one of our best selling shakes because it offers cost saving and convenience with the added ingredients. It has received positive reviews from our customers making it a popular choice.

Recommended products to use with this item

• Mix 1 scoop (33 grams) into 200 - 300ml of cold water.

• For an optimal 52 grams protein dose, mix 2 scoops into 400 - 600ml.

• Mix in a shaker or blender for 30 to 40 seconds.

• Take one serving (1 scoop) 30 - 45 minutes before workouts and a second double serving (2 scoops) immediately after.

• On non-training days/rest days, take a double serving (2 scoops) on an empty stomach 30 minutes before breakfast and a second serving in-between lunch and dinner.

• Note that the added herbal ingredients may leave a slight texture.


As with all supplements, please consult your physician first (especially if you have a medical condition). Do not use if you are pregnant/lactating or under the age of 18. Remember that an adequate state of hydration must be maintained when using this product. Have at least 8-12 large glasses of water per day. Taking more than the recommended dose will not improve results and may cause adverse reactions. For best results an appropriate muscle gain eating plan and training programme should be followed. High intakes of free-form amino acids may cause gastric discomfort in sensitive individuals - if this prolongs, reduce dosage or discontinue. Do not exceed the recommended daily intake. Nutritional supplements should not replace a varied diet. Keep out of the reach of young children.

Too sweet and disgusting.
Review by Yr (14 November 2022)
Too sweet, don’t buy this nonsens, you will get fat
Review by Tbag (13 November 2022)
Are you guys sure you have been gaining muscle or is it fat??

This thing is sweet AF!!! Disgusting

I am binning it.
It's a scam. High in sugar, less protein.
Review by Nick (2 November 2022)
Not ideal product for high protein low carb supplement, I am highly sensitive to sugar and this product is doing the trigger. No lean gains, water retention due to high sugar content.
Review by Shahid (23 October 2022)
It is definitely a tasty protein powder. I had two issues though. Firstly, this website ad clearly states in big red words, and I quote, "USN have reduced the size from 2kg to 1.8kg. Vanilla is the new 1.8kg size, the rest of the flavours are 2kg."

However, I ordered chocolate and it came in a 1.8kg size, essentially robbing me of 200grams/6 servings.

Secondly, this product gave me some gyno. I don't take any other supplements or gear or anything, so it has to be this product that caused it. Only other thing I use is creatine. So they're clearly being dishonest about the ingredients in the product if it can cause gyno.

SW: Hello Shahid,

Thank you so much for your purchase and the review.

We really apologise about the new 1.8kg size being sent without updating our site. The site has subsequently been updated to reflect the new size.

Regarding your second concern, USN would be the best to contact and answer any technical questions you have.
Too sweet
Review by Malek (25 August 2022)
Why this product is too sweet, can u explain to us why?
Review by Tashe  (12 July 2022)
Just got it, cannot comment on muscle results as yet however, what I can say is I hate the fact that it makes me feel nauseous. And actually puts me off taking it again
Good whey
Review by Boiler (15 February 2022)
Whey + creatine best combination ever. you will never go wrong. right now I feel like a monster.

Review by PABLO (10 February 2022)
Gained strength and muscle mass!
Review by JAZZY (14 April 2021)
MY 1ST MONTH AT THE GYM WITHOUT ANY PROTEIN SHAKES I LOST 5kgs...my 2nd month using Hardcore whey I gained 3kgs..Muscle & strength gains are great..its just the added on weight thats the problem !!
Review by Zwane (4 February 2021)
Started seeing results in 2 weeks & this was mainly coming from people who had said I was getting bigger. On my second tub now & even strength has increased, I’m lifting heavier weights at the gym. Best product used thus far.
Review by StrongGuy (26 November 2020)
I have been using this product for long, and without a doubt it keeps keeping fit a bit easier with all the extra ingredients. The taste is sweet and I enjoy it.
Review by NADZ (23 November 2020)
Newly changed the formula of this whey, its not disgusting to digest. previously was my favourite whey, not anymore
usn hardcore
Review by Jonty (23 September 2020)
Too sweet!! Makes me nauseous!! Not having gains
Poor Performance
Review by No doing much (4 September 2020)
I am using this product for 5 weeks now. This is really just an average protein supplement. I am gaining very little on muscle and strength. Maybe I am the exception, but certainly will not buy it again.
Review by Frieza (1 August 2020)
I don't use it every month. Some I skip but its always great at muscle maintenance.
Whey protein
Review by T k???? (2 May 2020)
I does really work but it too sweet I can't deal with that it makes me wanna throw up every time I drink it but it good though
I have been using the shake for two weeks, I have noticed fat gain. The product is too sweet.
Review by The Muscle Lady S (22 January 2020)
Two star
Review by Chris (10 January 2020)
To much sugar and no improvement only fat gains, expensive while robbing us of the whey content inside. Please save your money.
I look great
Review by Papa ntokzin (8 December 2019)
Best protein shake ever my arms are getting huge and my chest problem its my belly but i drink a lot of alcohol i have to do a lot of stomach exercises but i look great
Makes me nauseous
Review by KJ (2 October 2019)
It works for my body, can see the gains. However i feel nauseous during my gym session and burp a lot with the taste of the shake. If I don’t use it before a session I don’t have an issue. I take it within the specified time frame and have tried an hour before, no difference.
Best Whey!!
Review by ColonelHawx (30 July 2019)
I'm on my 3rd Tub. I've noticed a MAJOR difference when using this in conjunction with a PROPER DIET! I train 3 times a week and run once or twice. Mix this with Glutamine, have a good diet and workout routine and you are sorted. I have a crazy lifestyle and don't follow my plan always, so imagine if I do... This product is great...
Hardcore recovery
Review by Evan (26 July 2019)
Good whey , gives your recovery bit of an extra kick, and decent results
Effective but tastes so bad
Review by Van (22 July 2019)
Honestly the results are there, Im on my second month on the stuff, first bought the chocolate, has a better taste. the Vanilla is so bad, each time I take it , I feel like throwing up literally. But It seems to be working.
Couldn’t wait to get to the bottom of the tub
Review by Danny (20 July 2019)
I’ve tried a number of whey proteins from SSN to Evox to USN, this product the Tex flavor to be specific was my worst. That product leaves your stomach feeling so full. Tastes ok, but way to heavy on the stomach.
Tastes like rubbish
Review by JD (1 April 2019)
Worked like a charm, but the vanilla variant made me gag daily. Could not wait to get through the tub. Won't be trying it again.
better than mass gainer
Review by Simjay (24 January 2019)
i been using this product for a month after using hyperbolic mass gainer for a long time ,i recommend this product because within a month though i haven't added any weight but i can see great improvement on my muscle definition
quite good
Review by JouPa (20 January 2019)
Whey is whey, but at-least this has a bit more protein than most per 100g.
And like all the others they also have crap fillers in here, but omg the Rocky road flavor is good!!!!
And for the price it is awesome, mixes very well
Only thing that can be better is if you can find a place that does custom blends
Review by Don (28 November 2018)
Started weight training+ a clean diet in early Sept.Used different types of protein powders at different times throughout this period but since I bought a 2kg tub of this last month the gains are definitely more noticeable and body fat also down a bit.Will buy another tub this month and see wether the gains are down to the product or to my natural progression :)
I'm on my 3rd week bt I c d dffrnt now

Best supplement in SA.
Great Product All Around
Review by MndPower (20 June 2018)
Have been using this product for about 3 months and - together with a strict training and eating plan - the gains are amazing. My muscle definition became more pronounced, lost the body fat and general strength was up. As a mesomorph, this product made me look like a Hercules! :-)
Review by Maverick  (27 May 2018)
Really one of usn's best products
Value for money
Review by Cliveb (29 January 2018)
Great product that I have used for 8 months with no side effects, when taken before a work out it definitely gives you a slight boost. some decent gains noticed.
win win situasion
Review by clint (20 November 2017)
overall not too bad I did gain lean muscle mass I was on 2x scoops a day 1 before and 1 after workout ... so the shake does work just depending on what you want to do .
Not bad, gains slow but progressive....
Review by Dullax (18 November 2017)
The product is not bad.... have been using it for a few months and have made some descent progress, nothing major just progressive. The only flavour that tastes good to me is the new Rocky Road.... can't stand the choc and strawberry.
Fill up the container
Review by yanga (6 October 2017)
What i don't understand is why use such a big container but use half the space to put the product.

This stuff is expensive. fill it up.
Review by nokzaman (29 September 2017)
hardcore it may work strongly for me
Review by Technogain (28 September 2017)
Absolutely amazing whey, been using it since jan and I can see the differences.
On my second 2kg Tub
Review by Godzilla  (7 September 2017)
Hardcore Whey + Great diet = Beastly lean muscle gains. Strength, lean muscle mass and stamina increased. Crazy results if you stack it with a testosterone booster. Does the job when you're on a budget.
Not worth my money.
Review by Jake (6 September 2017)
I have been using this for nearly two weeks, two scoops a day. Have yet to feel any performance changes or results in strength of stamina. This product is a waste of money.
Good for anyone wanting to build muscle while losing body fat
Review by Elka (30 August 2017)
I have being using this product for 3 months now and the results are just great
Best bang for the buck Whey P-Shake available!
Review by That guy that you watch do his set (4 August 2017)
This is an absolute winner boys... If you have trouble with recovery and stiffness after workouts this is a great help! Keeps you full even though it can sometimes get a little sweet... Personally just down it. Gives me gas but that is the only con... Ultimately Pro's all the way! Absolutely recommend!
whey gh
Review by barh (3 July 2017)
protein power
Review by kash (3 April 2017)
Great product abit pricey although its worth every cent. Never felt this pumped
Review by BullDogg (22 September 2016)
Been using this product for 9 weeks. Good gains but nothing serious. The wife has been using it also and she lost alot of bum fat!!
So its a win win situation
Review by bob (10 August 2016)
Its been 2weeks greAt results !!!
Its ok
Review by Big jay (25 June 2016)
Good product for leaning out and the strength gains are crazy but too expensive
Good value for money
Review by NikNak (22 June 2016)
At this price, taking into account the ingredient matrix, I'd say this product is worth while to buy. I have been working out for about a month, and taking one scoop before workout and two scoops after. I have increased in mass from 88kg to about 95kg and my muscles look much 'fuller'. Tastes terrible to me (Dutch Choc), but i find when i add milk or mix it with porridge the taste is palatable. Overall I would recommend
great when combo with estrogen blocker
Review by KMN (12 April 2016)
A friend recommend it to me n when i reed the label, i then combined my buy with estrogen blocker (2xbottles). I drank the protein with every meal and before and after workouts taking 4pills of estrogen block 2twice a day, got shredded in three weeks and diet is important.
its good
Review by nick (18 February 2016)
i have used this and its a bit pricey but you do see the results. i bought the strawberry flavour and to be honest its not so good. stick to chocolate
i feel the difference
Review by Jman (10 February 2016)
If been using this for a month and already feel better and my muscles recovers much faster then usual
Review by alex (10 February 2016)
Not bad
Great overall whey
Review by Nivaria (25 January 2016)
Good product... a bit pricey but good quality and I could see results within weeks of training... mixes well and tastes great
Review by J (13 January 2016)
Returning to the gym after a sabbatical.... Really an effective product. less sore muscles, faster recovery, good strength progress etc.
Taste is a real treat and mixed in a shaker only and mixes well....
Will definitely recommend. Only wished it was a little cheaper though....? I guess you get what you pay for!
Best Whey Protein Ever!
Review by Neelesh (7 January 2016)
It's been 2 months since I was on USN hardcore whey and all I can say is that it's the best whey I've taken. 2KG for R500? That's one of the cheapest wheys you are getting in SA not to mention simply one of the best... Gains are solid, strength is up, and test is booming! You MUST have this product with any stack! Like I said, one of the best wheys in south Africa!
The supplement to consider
Review by Mazisi (3 November 2015)
I have been using this supplement. I like the taste, it mixes well. The price is reasonable and I am starting to see the results. My only concern is the water intake. I am struggling to drink water.
Awesome product i ever tried...
Review by JokErAcE (9 October 2015)
It a great deal for strength and weight gain but it too expensive.
good result
Review by gmoney (2 October 2015)
I you want to gain size this product is the best.
good results
Review by doctor (30 September 2015)
Whey protein shake it was a great
Review by AFROjack (31 August 2015)
Great taste, was using Evox x5 musclemass, but this is way better
I have not seen better numbers
Review by Jabu (14 August 2015)
Based on the new FAO protein quality evaluation method, Hardcore gH protein has a DIAAS of 161% designated from the ratio of valine not truncated and based on the old method of PDCAAS it’s protein has a truncated score of 1.00. A single serving provides 11 grams of BCAA, 2.7 grams of creatine and based on the protein true ileal digestibility co-efficient of its whey blend a serving provides about 25 grams of digestible protein. Based on these numbers Hardcore gH does not only have high quantity and quality of protein but has a potential to complement low quality protein in the diet. And one gets all of these for about ZAR7.74 per serving or ZAR0.23 per gram of protein. While based on these numbers Hardcore gH is my preferred protein supplement it’s important to note that these numbers are not absolutes but reasonable estimates based on the available data.
hardcore whey is the way to go!
Review by Shehz (22 July 2015)
Been using it for 3 weeks now .. After workouts the next day u don't feel no pain at all .. which is really impressive .. and muscle seems to stay pumped up ! I recommend this to any1 else put there ..

Good Gains
Review by Subash (23 January 2015)
Have been using this product for a month and saw good gains. Works best with a good diet and exercise plan. Would highly recommend it.
great product
Review by gym freak (18 October 2014)
combined with a good diet this product really gives you results :)
Good stuff
Review by Steve (20 May 2014)
Have been using this now for 6 months. Has helped me increase muscle mass but only as part of a good diet and by alternating work outs. Don't expect any protein product to help you if you don't hit the gym with progression in mind whilst eating sensibly.
Great stuff
Review by Nobby (15 April 2014)
Recommend it to anyone starting body building.
It works!
Review by Supreme (28 February 2014)
I used whey hardcore for 4 months and I've seen a lot of difference but when I stopped using it I didn't have that pump I had while using it ,and it has creatine(monohydrate) and testorone boosters(tribulus terrestris)and it worth the budget
An overall good whey product .
Review by korn1 (28 January 2014)
Okay if I must be honest it is not the best tasting whey but then again for the price I could not care (you get use to the taste in any case ). Awesome product ! Will definitely order this product again. Also thanks for the speedy delivery Supplement World.
Review by Tiago (22 January 2014)
works very well but the taste is a bit hard to get used to on the strawberry flavour.
works well
Review by n\a (21 January 2014)
This product really worked for me got some good gains in lean muscle and mass...just the taste I took long to get use to
Whey with some extra gut.
Review by Rynard (18 January 2014)
This isn't just a normal whey. It has ZMA and creatine that is great for boosting testosterone and the latter for cell growth.
Love it
Review by Moby  (13 January 2014)
I been using it for past 6 months ...I must say me impressed .....
Average Product
Review by Arif (8 January 2014)
Not a big fan of USN, bought because it was on sale at some store. Its an average product compared to other whey products on the market. Won't buy this product again because the strawberry flavor has a really horrible after taste.
great tasting whey!
Review by wian (4 November 2013)
Got very lean and still build some solid muscle while using this product. a great overall whey as far as price, results and taste is concerned.
Great Anabolic Blend
Review by Richard (23 October 2013)
Its the cheapest 2 kg Whey on the market and when using this and cutting out the carbs you can expects some intense vascularity... very pleased with this product.
Review by John (13 September 2013)
This product is average at best. Not a fan of USN. Got it because it was on special and cheap. There are much better wheys out there.
Worthwhile product
Review by Christopher (10 July 2013)
This worked very well for me. I lost lots of body fat but maintained the same weight while dropping inches from my stomach and waist.
Creatine Cut
Review by Carri B (8 July 2013)
This product really does what it says, the only issue is the creatine, as it make me retain and drink alot more water (2ltrs), to which I am now using a diuretic to help with the release of the water trapped.

Otherwise good product. USN please cut the creatine
Avoid Belgian Chocolate
Review by Army of TWO (20 May 2013)
This is true for all USN protein drinks - Belgian chocolate is the worst.
This product was great to use. Despite being slightly difficult to mix in a shaker, it was very filling and had added some quality muscle gains (in conjunction with my high protein diet).

The flavor which I had chosen was a bad choice - Belgian Chocolate.
I like Belgian chocolate bars. I like Belgian chocolate ice-cream. I do not like USN Belgian chocolate flavored protein shakes. This is no exception.

If you are going to this, then go for Strawberry. It is my least favorite flavor, but it will not make you dread every post-workout drink that you have to take.
great usn product
Review by Ismail (15 May 2013)
with all the added goodies in here you get a good power in the gym,taste is nice and mixes well,nice hardcore protein and good price
