CytoSport Complete Casein contains a tri-blend of three types of premium casein proteins: micellar casein, calcium caseinate and sodium caseinate. It also contains the patented protein-digesting enzyme Aminogen, shown to increase protein absorption and amino acid utilization. Unlike whey protein, CytoSport Complete Casein is a slow-absorbing protein, which provides a steady stream of amino acids to muscle cells over the period of 4-6 hours. This ensures positive nitrogen retention in muscles for much longer periods compared to whey protein. CytoSport Complete Casein is best taken at night or in combination with whey protein after workouts to help provide constant aminos during the two most crucial times of muscle growth: during sleep and post-training.
Complete Casein delivers 25 grams per serving of anti-catabolic, slow digesting protein from Micellar Casein and Calcium & Sodium Caseinate. Complete Casein forms a gel in the stomach and intestine which prolongs the digestion. This is what makes it different from Whey protein (Whey digests rapidly). Because Casein protein digests slower (typically 4-6 hours to completion) it provides amino acids over a longer period than Whey protein. This prolonged amino acid availability is what makes Complete Casein a perfect nighttime protein.
Additionally, Complete Casein contains Aminogen (patented digestive enzyme complex) to help promote efficient and complete protein utilization & uptake. Complete Casein is lactose and gluten free, so it is suitable for almost anyone looking to increase protein intake. Mixes easily in a shaker and has delicious Muscle Milk-like taste!

This product contains ingredients derived from milk and soy and is manufactured in a facility that processes milk, soy, wheat and egg products.
The optimal time for a serving of Complete Casein is 30-45 minutes immediately after your workout. This timing is critical because your muscles absorb approximately 80% of the aminos necessary to help them grow during the two hour period immediately following exercise. Complete Casein can also be used to help increase daily protein consumption.
