ometimes slower is better - especially when it comes to the rate of protein digestion. While rapid protein absorption is desirable immediately before or after exercise, delayed release is probably more beneficial throughout the remainder of the day.

Casein proteins are pH sensitive and gel in the acidic environment of the stomach. As a result, it can take more than twice as long for caseins to be broken-down into their amino acid subcomponents than whey and other proteins. Because of their unique time-released qualities, caseins are aptly described as anti-catabolic or muscle-protecting proteins.

SLOW-ACTING PROTEIN

While rapid protein digestion is desirable immediately before or after exercise, slower digestion is more appropriate for between meals and right before bed. Casein proteins are pH sensitive and gel in the acidic environment of the stomach. As a result, it can take longer for caseins to be broken-down into their amino acid subcomponents compared to whey and other proteins. Because of their unique slow-digesting qualities, caseins are accurately described as anti-catabolic or muscle-protecting proteins. ON's Gold Standard 100% Casein was the first all-micellar casein and remains the best seller.

Directions

Using a shaker cup is the easiest and most convenient way to mix up a consistently great casein shake every time. Just add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard 100% Casein to a shaker cup filled with 10-12 oz of your preferred beverage. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. TIP: Adjust the intensity of your Gold Standard 100% Casein by varying the amount of liquid that your use to prepare it. For a bolder flavor with slightly more body and sweetness, mix 1 heaping scoop with 8-10 oz of water, milk or your favorite beverage. For a milder tasting, less sweet shake, use 12-14 oz of liquid per scoop. Don’t have a shaker cup? Visit optimumnutrition.com and order a custom shaker, or visit your local health food store or gym. BLENDER: Add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard 100% Casein to a blender filled with 10-12 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Then add 3-4 ice cubes and blend for an additional 30 seconds. SHAKE UP YOUR SHAKE: By adding a few high-energy ingredients to your shake you can blend up a delicious meal: try adding fresh or frozen fruits (strawberries, bananas, peaches, etc.), peanut butter, flaxseed oil, yogurt, coconut, slivered almond, or other ingredients. STACK YOUR SHAKE: By adding supplements like Micronized Creatine, Glutamine, Taurine, and/or Instantized BCAA powders, you can make Gold Standard 100% Casein an even more powerful recovery product. SPOON STIRRED: If you forgot your shaker cup or don't have time to get out the blender, you can just add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard 100% Casein to a glass filled with 10-12 oz of cold water, milk, or you favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon for about 30 seconds or until powder is dissolved. Suggested Use: Consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day through a combination of high protein foods and supplements. For best results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread even throughout the day. TIP: Try using “slower” Gold Standard 100% Casein with “faster” Gold Standard 100% Whey or Pro Complex at different time for maximum effectiveness .Take Gold Standard 100% casein immediately before bed and in between meals when delayed protein delivery is desired. Drink Gold Standard 100% Whey or Pro Complex proteins before and immediately after workouts for a rapid “shot” of amino acids.
