Slow and steady wins the race - this also happens to be true in the protein race as well. Typically, athletes, bodybuilders, and fitness enthusiasts resort to Whey Protein for its fast-acting properties and benefits. But, when wanting a meal replacement, snack, or protein shake before bedtime, Whey protein just can't cut it! Therefore, in spite of finding a solution to the lacking timing of whey protein, Optimum Nutrition has Gold Standard 100% Casein.
The Benefits of Casein Protein
Although the most popular protein is Whey Protein for its fast rate of absorption, you can effectively only use Whey protein before and after exercise. Because of this, an extended-release protein is much more desirable and beneficial for daily or nightly uses. Casein protein is known to be pH sensitive, causing it to be digested more than twice as slow than Whey protein alone.
Casein is first found in the form of milk, as the most abundant protein derived from the milk. Due to its ability to assimilate very easily during digestion, Casein is considered a very high-quality source of protein.
Along with its benefits of slower digestion, Casein protein is known to cause a fullness far greater than Whey Protein. This fullness is both physical and mental; allow me to explain. Because of the slow digestion, it exhibits pressure onto the walls on the stomach, causing your body to send a signal to our brain that says your stomach is full.
With these numerous benefits of Casein Protein, the most important benefit by far is the slow and steady release of amino acids. This release occurs throughout the many hours it takes for your body to breakdown the Casein Protein, therefore our bodies receive amino acids to our muscles for hours
The Biore study is a clinical study performed on the effects Casein Protein has on the body.
The first set of results (perhaps the most important) shows that Casein causes a 31% increase in protein synthesis and reduces catabolism (muscle loss) by 34%. Along with these great pair of percentages, Casein was proven to increase Nitrogen balance for an average of 7 hours post-consumption!
The second set of results had shown that in the ingestion of Casein Protein vs. Whey Protein, individuals were shown to have lost almost 40% more fat and gained more than 50% more muscle by consuming Casein protein.
