Faster digesting protein is desirable immediately before and after exercise to help refuel recovering muscles, but slow digestion and absorption may be more beneficial at other times including bedtime when your body typically goes for hours without food. Casein products are acid sensitive and thicken in the stomach. Compared to some other proteins, it can take longer for our Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Casein to be broken down into its amino acid subcomponents. By using only premium micellar casein as a protein source, we've created a formula that sets the standard for slow digesting protein support.

Mix about one scoop of Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Casein into 300 to 350ml of cold water or milk using a shaker cup and stir, shake or blend for 30 seconds or until dissolved. Use 250 to 300ml for a thicker consistency and 300 to 350ml for a thinner fluid-like consistency. For best results, mix up your shake 30 to 60 minutes before bed, or have it between meals as an anytime snack in your balanced diet.
For healthy adults, consume enough protein to meet your daily protein requirements with a combination of high protein foods and protein supplementation throughout the day as part of a balanced, diet and exercise program.
