Why did we design Micellar Casein?
During sleep, when it is impractical to consume food or drink, your body will be in starvation mode and may start to break down muscle tissue. This could have a negative impact on both recovery and performance. As a result, a slow release protein can be perfect for recovery throughout the night.
How did we design Micellar Casein?
Unlike whey, Myprotein Micellar Casein is a slow release protein derived from milk. Casein can take up to 6 hours to completely digest and be utilised, which means that it can drip feed your muscles with a tapered supply of amino acids over a prolonged period of time. This makes Micellar Casein the perfect product for between meals or pre-bed. Each serving boasts an incredible nutritional profile with 26g of protein and only 1.2g of carbohydrates and 0.5g of fat.
What are the Key benefits?
This protein source hosts a complete amino acid profile and contains branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) which are the building blocks for new proteins. Micellar Casein delivers 26g of slowly-absorbed protein per serving which may vastly improve your night-time recovery alongside contributing to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass. With minimal fat and carbohydrates, this product certainly compliments the desired goals of a calorie-controlled diet.
Is this Product for me?
Micellar Casein is an excellent source of protein for any individual, from recreational gym-goers to ultra-marathon runners who are looking to increase their daily protein intake to contribute to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass.
Add one heaped large scoop (30g) of Casein to 250ml of water in your Blender Bottle. Shake and consume immediately. Use less liquid for a thicker and stronger tasting shake. Use milk for a creamier tasting shake.
We recommend one serving 30-60 minutes before bed to deliver a sustained supply of protein whilst you sleep. Can also be consumed between meals as required. Experts suggest a minimum 1g of protein per pound of body weight daily to promote lean muscle growth.
