Why choose Casein?
Casein protein comes from milk and accounts for over 80% of the protein content, the rest being whey. Casein is often referred to as an "anti-catabolic" protein due to its impact on minimising muscle protein breakdown. Casein gels once it reaches the stomach because of low pH levels and this causes a slower release of amino acids into the bloodstream.
Timing: There is no doubt that whey protein is the ideal supplement immediately before or after training sessions. However, there are times when a slow digesting protein may be more suitable. For example if you don’t have access to a source of protein for several hours, supplementing with casein will help to reduce muscle protein breakdown and spare lean muscle mass.
First thing in the morning and before you go to bed at night are good times to take Casein. Casein can also be added to yogurts, smoothies and breakfast cereals to increase your daily intake of protein.
Branch Chain Amino Acids BCAAs: Casein is naturally high in BCAAs which have been shown to reduce recovery time, promote muscle protein synthesis and minimise muscle protein breakdown.
Glutamine: Casein contains 5 g of Glutamine in a single serving. Glutamine may enhance muscular growth and improve the rate of recovery between workouts through its anabolic and anti catabolic properties. Glutamine is also suggested to play an important role in immunity; it provides the fuel for the immune system to produce antibodies and fight infections.
Aminogen® is a patented blend of digestive proteases which are enzymes that break down protein and allow for greater absorption. Aminogen® can increase the absorption of protein by 3.5 times the normal rate.

For best results, take one serving (1 serving = 30 g or 1 scoop) in 300ml to 400 ml of water OR 300 ml of skimmed milk) in the late evening or first thing in the morning. Casein can also be used to add more protein to your diet as mid morning / mid afternoon snack.
Casein tastes great with milk; however, user must be aware of the extra calories from consuming milk.
