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
THE TRUE STRENGTH OF CASEIN
Faster digesting protein is desirable immediately before and after exercise to help refuel recovering muscles, but slow digestion and absorption may be more beneficial at other times - including bedtime when your body typically goes for hours without food. Casein proteins are acid sensitive and thicken in the stomach. Compared to some other proteins, it can take longer for our Gold Standard 100% Casein to be broken down into its amino acid subcomponents. By using only premium micellar casein as a protein source, we've created a formula that sets the standard for slow digesting protein support.
