The Bigger Picture of Casein
Rapid protein use is desirable immediately before 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 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 using only premium micellar casein, we've created a protein formula that's truly time-released.

Typical Amino Acid Profile (milligrams per serving)

Essential Amino Acids (EAAs)   Conditionally Essential Amino Acids (CAAs)   Nonessential Amino Acids (NAAs)
  Tryptophan  292   Arginine  866   Aspartic Acid  1589
  Valine  1609   Cystine  79   Serine  1396
 Threonine 1039   Tyrosine  846   Glycine  510
  Leucine  2129   Proline  2421  
  Lysine  1822   Glutamine & Precursors   4950
  Phenylalanine  1144
  Methionine  644

Beyond the Basics

  • Loaded with 100% Micellar Casein.
  • 24 grams of time-released protein per serving.
  • Contains Aminogen® digestive enzymes to enhance utilization.
  • Over 5 grams of BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine).
  • Nearly 5 grams of Glutamine & glutamine precursors in every scoop.

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 throughout the day. 

Tip:  Try using "slower" Gold Standard 100% Casein™ with "faster" proteins like Gold Standard 100% Whey™ or Pro Complex ® at different times 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.
