Description

THE BIGGER PICTURE OF CASEIN
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 it’s amino acid subcomponents than other proteins. By blending premium micellar and calcium caseins, we’ve created a protein formula that’s truly time-released.

BEYOND THE BASICS
  • Loaded with 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.

PRODUCT DIRECTIONS / ADDITIONAl INFO

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 evenly throughout the day.TIP: Try using “slower” Gold Standard 100% Casein with “faster” proteins like 100% Whey Gold Standard™ 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 100% Whey Gold Standard™ or Pro Complex™ proteins before and immediately after workouts for a rapid “shot” of amino acids.

SHAKER: Bringing a shaker cup with you to the gym is the best way to get a powerful dose of protein immediately after your workout. Just add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard 100% Casein to your shaker cup and then pour 10-12 oz of your preferred beverage. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. Don’t have a shaker cup? Visit www.optimumnutrition.com and order a custom shaker, or visit your local health food store or gym.

BLENDER:Add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard 100% Casein to a blender filled with 10-12 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Then add 3-4 ice cubes and blend for an additional 30 seconds. SHAKE UP YOUR SHAKE: By adding a few high-energy ingredients to your shake you can blend up a delicious meal: try adding fresh or frozen fruits (strawberries, bananas, peaches, etc.), peanut butter, flaxseed oil, yogurt, coconut, slivered almonds, or other ingredients. STACK YOUR SHAKE: By adding supplements like Micronized Creatine, Glutamine, Taurine, and/or INSTANTIZED BCAA powders, you can make Gold Standard 100% Casein an even more powerful post-workout recovery product.

SPOON STIRRED: If you forgot your shaker cup or don’t have time to get out the blender, you can just add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard 100% Casein to a glass filled with 10-12 oz of cold water, milk, or your favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon for about 30 seconds or until powder is dissolved.

The Best. No Contest
Taking 25g with 3/4 cup of milk every night before bed and wow it's made a difference!! I feel so much more refreshed and recharged in the mornings so I can get ready to take on my grueling training sessions! This really has shortened my recovery time and I honestly have been sleeping deeper since I started taking it! And just an added bonus, it's DELICIOUS!
Definitely recommended to those who are serious athletes/competitors. Also recommend taking two 25g whey protein shakes a day.
Remember, nutrition plays a HUGE factor in the results you get from the work you're putting in!!

Cookie Chunks
The flavor of this is not that great or not that bad; I mixed mine with 4oz vanilla almond milk and 4 oz water. I will be exchanging this because I do not like the chunks of "cookie" in the mix. It just seems weird because its a drink not a shake so its not like a milk shake where you would chew the cookie pieces. Plus the pieces don't even taste like anything so their pointless; I gag trying to drink it with those pieces of cookie in my mouth.

Keeps the cravings away
I have a very high metabolism. This product allows you to hold off the hunger pains between meals or bedtime. Taken with the already numerous amount of calories I already take I can maintain my weight a lot better.

Pretty good stuff
I have noticed a considerable drop in recovery time when using this product before going to sleep, especially if taken with Glutamine. if you want to keep your workouts at a fast pace and at the same level of intensity (relatively speaking) as when you first started working out, this product does a pretty good job.

Gold Standard 100% Casein
Very happy with the taste, easy to mix, not clumpy, and feel the results. Definitely would recommend it as an overnight slow burn addition to Gold Standard Whey fast burn day protein. Thanks Gold Standard!
