BCAAs: Comprised of Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine, these are the "big 3" when it comes to growth. They are used to stimulate protein synthesis (muscle growth) and come into play during long workouts when muscles become depleted of energy. BCAAs can prevent muscle breakdown exerting what's called an "anti-catabolic" effect.*
4 Dimension™ Casein provides a major distinction to whole foods (chicken, meat and fish) in that it forms a gel in the stomach which, in turn, causes a "slowing effect" where the building blocks of Casein, called amino acids, move at a constant pace into the digestive system.* Many sports nutritionists refer to this slowing effect as nature's "timed-release" system of protein dispensation. The importance here: a high intake of Casein can, by virtue of an abundant intake of amino acids, exert an anabolic effect where amino acids are used to build new muscle tissue. At the same time, the unique lingering effect of Casein exerts an anti-catabolic or muscle preservation effect.* Building muscle boils down to consuming enough high quality protein to "build" the body where amino acids turn on protein metabolism and the muscles soak up dietary amino acids to turn those amino acids into new muscle.* Building muscle also requires the body "preserve" its tissue by blocking muscle tissue breakdown, a by -product of hard core training. In a nutshell, 4 Dimension™ Casein provide both muscle building and muscle saving properties that support muscle growth, preservation and repair.*
As a sports nutrition product 4 DN™ Micellar Casein is manufactured under rigorous and stringent certifications known worldwide. Our production facility is EU (European Union), cGMP and HACCP certified. The result, 4DN™ Micellar Casein is a truly superior product that meets or exceeds the strictest standards in the world.

- Supplement Facts
Mix 1 to 2 scoops of Micellar Casein with 10-12 oz of cold water or skim milk and blend either in a shaker bottle or blender. Consume 1-3 servings per day. 4DN™ Casein is best taken just before bed or in between meals to optimize on its slow release protein delivery. It can optionally be taken first thing in the morning.

- Health Notes
Casein ProteinCasein ProteinThis nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
- Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
- Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
- For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.
Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.
For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.
This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:ObesityDose: Refer to label instructionsCasein protein in milk may aid weight loss due to its effect on appetite, calorie burning, and body composition. (more)Athletic PerformanceDose: Refer to label instructionsCasein protein is more slowly digested than other animal proteins, resulting in a slower, prolonged rise in blood levels of amino acids, so some speculate that it may better support protein synthesis by the body compared with proteins like whey protein that are more rapidly digested. (more)ObesityDose: Refer to label instructionsCasein, the main protein in milk, may aid weight loss due to its effect on appetite, calorie burning, and body composition.1, 2 In a controlled trial, overweight women dieted for four months using a low-calorie diet that included three daily shakes made from either casein or soy protein.3 Both groups lost similar amounts of weight, with similar improvements in body composition, suggesting there was no difference in the weight-loss benefits of soy or casein protein. In another controlled trial, overweight men were given a low-calorie diet along with a weight training exercise plan for three months. Men who followed this plan and also took 1.5 grams per day of predigested casein protein per 2.2 lbs body weight lost a similar amount of weight as did men using a similar amount of whey protein along with the same diet and exercise plan. However, the men using casein protein gained more lean body mass and lost more body fat than the men using whey protein.4References

However, in two double blind trials, measurements of muscle protein synthesis after leg exercises were similar whether casein or whey protein (either 20 grams or 0.3 grams per 2.2 lbs body weight taken one hour after exercise) was consumed. Other double blind studies have shown that adding protein supplements to a weight-training program improves gains in muscle mass and strength, but only one trial has compared using casein alone to other proteins for improving body composition and muscle strength. In this controlled trial, overweight men were given a low-calorie diet along with a weight training exercise plan for three months. Men who followed this plan and also took 1.5 grams per day of predigested casein protein per 2.2 lbs body weight gained more strength and lean body mass, and lost more body fat than did men using a similar amount of whey protein along with the same diet and exercise plan.ReferencesCasein is the main protein found in milk. Similar to other animal proteins, casein is a complete protein, providing generous amounts of essential amino acids.1 However, it is digested more slowly than most other animal proteins, resulting in a more prolonged release of amino acids into the bloodstream.2
