100% Gold Standard Casein Protein Overview

Optimum Nutrition’s 100% Gold Standard Casein is an ultrapure form of micellar casein protein. Each serving provides a huge serving of undenatured muscle-building casein protein with hardly any calories from fat or carbs. Casein is a favorite of both gainers and dieters for its anabolic effects on muscle growth throughout gaining phases and preservation of muscle during dieting phases.

Casein and whey are both derived from milk protein, and each is absorbed and utilized in an entirely different manner. Whey is broken down and absorbed rather quickly after consumption while casein forms a viscous gel in the digestive tract, allowing the component amino acids to be absorbed over a much longer period. Whey is usually taken immediately after a workout to take advantage of its fast absorption while casein is typically taken during other times, especially at night or a couple of hours before a planned workout. This allows amino acids to be delivered during and after workouts and also while you’re asleep, ensuring optimal nitrogen retention in muscles during these important times of recovery.

100% Gold Standard Casein protein can also be taken anytime to provide a consistent stream of anabolic amino acids into the bloodstream, maximizing both hypertrophy and muscular recovery. Optimum Nutrition has set the standard in quality protein, and their 100% micellar casein is no exception.

100% Gold Standard Casein Protein Description from OPTIMUM NUTRITION
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 subcomponents than whey and other proteins. Because of their unique time-released qualities, caseins are aptly described as anti-catabolic or muscle-protecting proteins.

Manufacturer's Directions
Using a shaker cup is the easiest and most convenient way to mix up a consistently great casein shake every time. Just add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard 100% Casein to your shaker cup and then pour in 10-12 oz of your prefered beverage. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds.

Consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day through a combination of high protein foods and supplement. For best results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread evenly throughout the day.

Great protein

Great product, you can feel the difference the next morning after workouts, you can tell your muscles recover better and are getting the right nutrients when you sleep

Lovin It!

I have been taking ON Casein protein for quite a while now and I love it. Ive tried Chocolate Cake Batter and it was disgusting. And Ive tried Chocolate Supreme which was really good. But I take it before bed to help rebuild muscle throughout the night and its great. I feel not so hungry in the morning and also feel like my muscles are getting the nutrients they need. Definitely recommend.

plenty of bang for your buck

Great product. High quality. Great price. Opt for vanilla.

Great with cottage cheese

I mix a scoop of the Chocolate Supreme flavor with 1/2 cup of cottage cheese before bed, adding just a touch of water to blend in a small cup and the result is like Jello brand chocolate pudding. It's unbelievably delicious and not like cottage cheese at all. Just watch out or you may be tempted to mix up a big batch!
