Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Casein
Slow down the rate of protein digestion – not your performance! Gold Standard 100% Casein by Optimum Nutrition contains – as the name suggests – 100% of the dairy protein Casein to help with recovery, boost muscle growth and reduce muscle breakdown while you sleep. This slow-digesting protein releases amino acids slowly over a long period of time. This process can help your cells synthesize protein during times when your body might normally be breaking down its own muscles to energise itself. While athletes and bodybuilders use fast-digesting protein immediately before and after their workout to help refuel recovering muscles, slow-digestion is more beneficial at other times including bedtime when your body typically goes for hours without food.
