Gold Standard 100 Casein 908g by Optimum Nutrition
Gold Standard 100% Casein is a protein powder that contains 24 grams of micellar casein per scoop.
Whey Concentrate or Isolate is a fast-digesting protein that should be consumed immediately after a training session to help your muscles recover and grow but Casein Protein which is a much slower digesting protein is extremely beneficial at other times specifically between meals and when you sleep.
Each serving of this product delivers 24 grams of micellar casein over 5 grams of BCAAs and nearly 5 grams of glutamine. Additionally, there are very few carbs, sugar, or fat per serving.
What is micellar casein?
Micellar casein is the slowest digesting form of protein and it forms a gel during digestion allowing for a steady release of amino acids over several hours.
Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Casein is an ideal protein to have between meals to help
increase rates of protein synthesis or right before bed.
Even though you may be shut down once you hit the sheets your body is still running and if you don't feel it properly it'll start breaking down your muscle tissue for energy. By having casein right before you go to bed you give it the energy in nutrients it needs to help your muscles grow and recover.
A casein drink right before bed has also been shown to increase resting metabolic rate in the morning as well as decrease hunger. So not only will you be burning more calories when you get up but you'll be less tempted to reach for that box of sugary cereal or pastries.
Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Casein comes in awesome flavours like chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla.
Compared to whey protein casein is much thicker so when you mix it with water or milk you get more of a milkshake consistency. We recommend taking a serving of the chocolate, mix it in with some almond milk and ice and you have a healthy and tasty treat. You can also try mixing a little milk with a scoop of strawberry and you have a great tasting pudding perfect for a bedtime snack.
