Don’t Overlook Casein Protein, It’s A Powerful Supplement


We all have to consider expense, it’s a fact of life that some people can afford more than others, so we do what we can to manage. So from a supplement stand point you may decide to avoid key muscle builders such as BCAAs, an amino blend or Casein, if so then try to re- work it so you don’t have to, these are important players in muscle building. Casein is a major player in sustained muscle protein synthesis i.e. it’s ideal for drip feeding your muscles with amino acids during the course of the night. A result of this sustained amino acid release is sustained muscle protein synthesis and minimal muscle catabolism (breakdown). A casein protein supplement such as Pro Performance 100% Casein Protein, or PhD Nutrition Casein Peptide is ideal, aim to consume a serving of this around 30mins before bed and the slow releasing nature of casein will keep your muscles topped up over night! Do that little extra to beat your competition!
