Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Casein

Gold Standard 100% Casein is a slow digesting protein that supports muscle growth and repair while you sleep. Each serving is packed with 24g of protein which provides a prolonged supply of amino acids overnight. SUPPORT MUSCLE GROWTH AND REPAIR OVERNIGHT. From runners to rugby players and tennis players to triathletes, whenever any type of athlete trains or competes their muscles need preparing and repairing to put them in the best shape next time out.

Casein is best enjoyed in the evening.Enjoy before bed to support muscle growth while you rest. Suitable for vegetarians.

Sometimes slower is better-especially when it comes to the rate of protein digestion. While rapid protein absorption is desirable immediately before or after exercise, delayed release is probably more beneficial throughout the remainder of the day. Casein proteins are pH sensitive and gel in the acidic environment of the stomach. As a result, it can take more than twice as long for caseins to be broken-down into their amino acid subcomponents than whey and other proteins. Casein is the most abundant protein present in milk. It is considered a high quality protein because it is easily assimilated and it supplies sufficient quantities of amino acids that cannot be synthesized by the body.

Another benefit is increased satiety (feeling of fullness or satisfaction). Casein exerts a slight pressure on the stomach walls. In effect, this pressure signals to the brain to stop eating because the stomach is full. Casein is the most slowly digested and absorbed type of protein. This helps create a "timed-release" effect, providing a steady stream of amino acids to your muscles over a long period of time. The net result is a greatly enhanced anti-catabolic environment which is much more friendly to growth and recovery.
