Optimum Nutrition 100% Casein - Blueberries and Cream - 2 lbs
Rapid protein use is desirable immediately before and after exercise to help refuel recovering muscles, but delayed digestion and absorption may be more beneficial at other times - including bedtime, when your body typically goes for hours without food.
Casein proteins are acid-sensitive and tend to thicken in the stomach. Because of this it can take more than twice as long for our Gold Standard 100% Casein to be broken down into its amino acid subcomponents than other proteins. By blending premium micellar and calcium caseins, we've created a protein formula that's truly time-released.
Typical amino acid profile (mg per serving): Essential Amino Acids (EAAs): Tryptophan 292, Valine 1609, Threonine 1039, Isoleucine 1312, Leucine 2129, Lysine 1822, Phenylalanine 1144, Methionine 644. Conditionally Essential Amino Acids (CAAs): Arginine 866, Cystine 79, Tyrosine 846, Histidine 688, Proline 2421, Glutamine & precursors 4950.

For even better results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread evenly throughout the day.
