TIME RELEASED PROTEIN FORMULA!
100% Casein is a delayed release protein formula.
Casein proteins are pH sensitive and gel in the acidic environment of the stomach, resulting in a longer duration before they are broken down into their amino acid subcomponents.
Rapid protein use is desirable immediately before and after a workout to help refuel recovering muscles, but a delayed digestion and absorption is more beneficial during the remainder of the day. By using only premuim micellar casein, the Gold Standard 100% Casein formula is truly time-released to help protect your muscles!
PROMOTE MUSCLE GROWTH AND MUSCLE RECOVERY!
100% 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 muscle growth and muscle recovery. Bodybuilders and athletes looking to build lean muscle, prevent muscle breakdown, and reduce recovery times, and individuals interested in improving the quality of sleep can greatly benefit from 100% Casein.
Research done regarding Casein Protein found that casein managed about a 31% increase in protein synthesis (to whey's 68%)... but also reduced whole-body protein degradation (catabolism) by 34%. More importantly, researchers found that casein contributed to a positive nitrogen balance an average of 7 hours after ingestion.
100% Casein Directions:
Consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day through a combination of high protein foods and supplements.
For best results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread evenly throughout the day.
Take Gold Standard 100% Casein immediately before bed when and in between meals when delayed protein delivery is desired.
