Optimum Nutrition 100% Casein Protein

Sometimes slower is better - especially when it comes to the rate of protein digestion. While rapid protein absorption is desirable immediately before or after exercise, delayed release is probably more beneficial throughout the remainder of the day. Casein proteins are pH sensitive and gel in the acidic environment of the stomach. As a result, it can take more than twice as long for caseins to be broken-down into their amino acid sub components than whey and other proteins. Because of these unique 'time-released' qualities, caseins are aptly described as being anti-catabolic, or muscle-protecting, proteins.

Please note: Nutritional content may vary between 100% Casein Protein flavors.

About Protein

Protein is the most important supplement that you should take as a bodybuilder, athlete or fitness competitor, next to a multi-vitamin. To simply put it, if your not taking in the adequate amount of protein on a daily basis, you will not grow and your wasting time in the gym.

  • You should consume 1.5–2 grams of protein per pound of body weight. If you weigh 150lbs, you should be consuming 225–300 grams of protein each day!
  • Protein Shakes are a great way to make sure you meet your daily intake of protein. You want to also make sure you are eating high protein foods as well, such as chicken, fish and steaks.
  • After an intense workout your muscles breakdown, which is why protein is so important! Protein will repair and build new muscle tissue.
  • If you are serious about building quality muscle, Protein Shakes will be part of your daily regimen, along with a healthy diet. Protein is the “building blocks” of growing.
