The ultimate night-feed formulation, Applied Nutrition 100% CASEIN PROTEIN serves to protect lean muscle tissue mass and prevent the breakdown of muscle protein, particularly during periods of fasting and before bed as a recovery shake.
The primary ingredient, micellar casein, digests differently when compared to other supplementary protein sources, forming a gel mass in the GI tract that slows down the uptake of amino acids as the protease enzymes need to work harder to break down the complex protein, resulting in a drip-feed of amino acids. Casein protein digests at half the rate of whey, somewhere around 6 grams per hour. Five 5 hours after consuming 30 grams of casein protein, you will be back to base plasma-amino acid baseline. DigeZyme® (multi-digestive enzyme complex) and LactoSpore are added for nutrient improved uptake and total digestive comfort.
