Faster digesting amino acids are desirable immediately before and after exercise to help refuel recovering muscles, but slow digestion and absorption may be more beneficial at other times – including bedtime when your body typically goes for hours without food.*
While fast digesting Whey Protein Concentrates and Isolates are perfect for post-workout recovery, to feed your muscles fast, a slow-digesting protein is beneficial at other times, primarily before bed, to keep your muscles fed while you rest.
Each serving of Optimum Gold Standard Casein contains 24g of Micellar Casein protein, which is a protein derived from milk, best known for its properties to “gel” during the digestive process, resulting in a release of amino acids over up to 8 hours.
Low in carbohydrates, fats, and sugar, and high in BCAAs, Glutamine, and Glutamic Acid, Optimum Gold Standard Casein is an ideal meal replacement, pre-bed shake or guilt-free midnight snack to keep your muscles nourished and growing while you sleep.
Available in Choc Peanut Butter, Strawberry Creme, Creamy Vanilla, Banana Cream, Chocolate Supreme, and Blueberries & Cream!
