Optimum Nutrition 100% Casein Protein
Optimum Nutrition Casein Protein delivers 24 g of slower digesting casein proteins. Casein protein is pH sensitive. While rapid protein absorption is desirable immediately before or after exercise, delayed release is probably more beneficial throughout the remainder of the day & especially the last thing at night.
Compared to some other proteins, it could take more than twice as long as Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Casein to be broken down into its amino acid subcomponents. Optimum Nutrition uses only premium micellar casein as their protein source. This ensures you are getting the finest casein protein ingredients when choosing this night time protein. Optimum Nutrition's protein formula sets the standard for slow digesting protein support.
When to use Optimum Nutrition 100% Casein Protein?
Casein protein is ideal for use in between meals and before bed. Casein protein is sometimes known as "night time" protein because it's ideal to have just before you go to bed. Optimum Nutrition has you covered day and night. Try Optimum Nutrition Whey Gold Standard before and immediately after workouts. Then use Optimum Nutrition 100% Casein Gold Standard between meals and before bed for prolonged, sustained protein and amino acid coverage.
How much Optimum Nutrition Casein should I take?
To encourage a positive nitrogen balance, consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day from a combination of high protein foods and supplements. For even better results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread evenly throughout the day.
