Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Casein
Faster digesting protein is desirable immediately before and after exercise to help refuel recovering muscles, but slow digestion and absorption may be beneficial at other times, such as bedtime, when your body goes hours without food. Casein products thicken in the stomach and can take longer to be broken down into its amino acid subcomponents.
By using only premium micellar casein as a protein source, we've created a formula that sets the standard for slow digesting protein support.
- 24g of Anti-Catabolic Micellar Casein
- Slow-Digesting Protein
- 5 Grams of Naturally Occurring BCAAs
- 5 Grams of Naturally Occurring Glutamine and Glutamic Acid
24 grams of slow-digesting micellar casein per serving with 60% of the daily value for Calcium. Provides nearly 5 grams of naturally occurring BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine & Valine) and nearly 5 grams of naturally occurring Glutamine & Glutamic Acid in every scoop.
Before bed to provide amino acid delivery while you’re asleep and between meals for lasting protein support.
While whey protein shakes tend to be thinner in consistency, casein protein powder creates a thicker more richly flavored shake. When mixed into cold water or milk, micellar casein resembles an ice cream milkshake in texture. It’s a solid foundation for using an electric blender to create endless varieties of smoothies with fruits, nuts and other ingredients.
