Casein protein powder is developed from around 80% of the available protein in milk, contains the full range of essential amino acids, and has a high biological value. It is recommended by nutritionists for its excellent anti-catabolic properties, and can be taken virtually any time.
Casein protein powder is different to other protein powders in that it has a very slow-paced digestion rate of around seven to eight hours: when it reaches the stomach it forms large globules of protein. This slows down the rate of gastric emptying; and over a sustained period of time the amino acids in the casein protein systematically pass into the bloodstream.
During our sleep period the body is not receiving any new nutrients, and if it has no more amino acids left in the bloodstream, it begins breaking up proteins from the muscles to provide fuel.
To that end, having a casein powder supplement prior to retiring to bed is a first-class means of staving off protein breakdown and the oxidation of amino acids.
An additional bonus is that the muscles will receive nourishment at the same time that the body’s growth hormones are elevated.
Our Casein protein powders offer the finest quality at the cheapest prices. Our popular Micellar Casein Protein Drink is available in Chocolate, Strawberry and Vanilla flavours.
