Slow Digesting Protein
Casein is a form of milk protein that breaks down slowly and provides a release of aminos for up to seven hours, allowing the body to repair and build muscle tissue after exercise for prolonged periods of time.
Micellar Casein is derived from skim milk using low heat and ultrafiltration, which prevents it against denaturing.
It is effective before prolonged periods without feeding, such as before bed, to provide a slow and steady release of protein that feeds the body. Casein may also be taken during the day to maintain amino acids in the bloodstream.
5 Benefits of Casein:
1.Longer lasting– drinking casein right before bed may be more helpful throughout the night than any other protein option.
2.Greater gains– consuming a combination of proteins that includes casein may yield better results.
3.Fat loss– may create a higher metabolic rate while sleeping and a better overall fat balance.
4.Greater strength– researchers found that it actually doubled the effect that whey protein had on legs, chest, and shoulder strength results, believed to be a result of casein’s anti-catabolic properties.
5.?Dental protection?- research found that casein proteins have the potential to reduce or prevent the effects of enamel erosion.
Made in New Zealand
NZ dairy is considered to be the cleanest and purest in the world.
The cattle that produce the milk used to create this product are not factory farmed. They are raised without the use of hormones, including rBGH. They do not contain antibiotics and are routinely screened for over 250 agricultural and chemical contaminants including pesticides, fertilisers and PCB’s.
Taste and Mixing
This product mixes thicker than whey, therefore we recommend adding more liquid to a serving depending on your desired taste and thickness.
It mixes easily in a blender or hand shaker but like with most powders it’s recommended to add the liquid before the powder in your hand shaker.
Consuming high-quality protein at regular intervals throughout the day can encourage a positive nitrogen balance, aid recovery, and help to increase metabolism.
Depending on your nutritional requirements take 1-3 servings daily. This product digests slowly and is suitable to be taken before prolonged periods without feeding, such as before bed. It can also be used during the day to maintain amino acids in the bloodstream.
