Our wide range of milk and casein proteins is
designed with the best ingredients available in the market. Milk proteins have
a high biological value, meaning they are an excellent protein source for
anyone wanting to build muscle.
Milk is made up of 80% whey protein and 20%
Casein is the major protein found in milk and
it's best known for its slow absorption rate (*1).
Casein, when consumed, clots when exposed to
the acids in the stomach. This process forms large globules of
protein that empty the stomach much slower than other
protein sources, such as whey or egg protein. Because of this, casein
powders provide a sustained release of amino acids to the bloodstream.
Research has shown that, when it comes
to muscle building, proteins derived from milk are superior
to vegetable sources of protein, such as soy and pea (*2).
While milk and casein proteins
are effective in promoting muscle protein synthesis, its
main advantage is the ability to provide a tapered release of amino
acids into the bloodstream, as opposed to whey (*3). This can be especially
useful for preventing muscle catabolism during long periods without food.
Casein may be more
beneficial for those looking to feed the body during a long period of
time. That's why casein is touted as the ideal protein to take before
bedtime. Casein's prolonged digestion helps promote a positive nitrogen
balance during the long hours of sleep (*4).
Milk and Casein proteins can be
virtually taken at any time of the day. However, it is especially useful during
Casein protein can also be combined
with whey to enhance anabolic response. Combining protein sources with
different absorption rates will provide a more prolonged release of
amino acids into the bloodstream and so boost muscle protein
