Casein Supplements: Information
Casein protein, also known as milk protein, makes up about 80% of the protein in whole milk, whey protein comprising the other 20%. Casein is a slow-digesting and complete protein, containing rich quantities of glutamine and all essential amino acids.
Casein Protein's Health Benefits
Most casein protein users are concerned with gaining or maintaining lean body mass and muscle tissue. For these customers, casein's slow digesting properties make it the ideal protein for a pre-bedtime shake or any type of meal replacement shake designed to supply protein over a long period of time, or whenever more frequent protein feedings would be impractical.
Using Casein Supplements
Use as directed.
Side-effects and Cautions:
None noted. Those allergic to casein should avoid casein protein supplements.
