Description
DYMATIZE® ELITE CASEIN XT provides 24 grams of slow digesting casein protein per serving. ELITE CASEIN XT is specifically designed to digest more slowly in your body than other rapid release protein sources such as whey. This slow digestion is a result of the natural pH sensitivity of Casin Protein in the digestive track. Because of the natural thickening effect of ELITE CASEIN XT in the low pH environment of the stomach, a prolonged and steady release of protein is obtained. This delayed digestion is often desirable, especially at bedtime or other periods when your body can go for an extended period of hours without food.

ELITE CASEIN XT is further enhanced by the addition of NUTRATERIC®, a revolutionary, pharmaceutically- developed coating system. This delayed release technology allows the specific material it coates to release at a particular pH range. In fact, with this coating process, the resting digestion can take more than twice as long as other forms of non-coated protein, further enhancing the extended release capacity of Dymatize ELITE CASEIN XT.

Each serving of ELITE CASEIN XT. is delicious and satisfying. Due to the naturally hydroscopic nature of casein proteins, ELITE CASEIN XT. is noticeably thicker and smoother than other non-casein based products. ELITE CASEIN XT. is made from only protein sources with a PDCAAS (protein digestibility corrected amino acid)of 1.0 (perfect score) or higher. With 24 grams of Casein-derived protein, and about 10 grams of BCAAs, Glutamine and Precursors teamed with the revolutionary NUTRATERIC® coating, ELITE CASEIN XT. will help you achieve all your fitness goals.

Health Notes

Casein Protein

Casein Protein
This 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:

Obesity
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Casein protein in milk may aid weight loss due to its effect on appetite, calorie burning, and body composition. (more)
Athletic Performance
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Casein 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)
Obesity
Dose: 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.4

Athletic Performance
Dose: Refer to label instructionsCasein protein is more slowly digested than other animal proteins, resulting in a slower yet more prolonged rise in blood levels of amino acids.1 This has led to speculation that casein may support protein synthesis by the body for a longer period of time compared with proteins, such as whey protein, that are more rapidly digested. 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.

Casein 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

Comments about Dymatize® Nutrition Elite Casein XT - Smooth Vanilla:

I used the product when I realised it was cheaper to get one of these than have a 'Protein Milk' for $5 per drink in the two weeks I holidayed in the United States but wanted to maintain my workouts.
Great taste, whether with water or milk, mixed with effective slow-release ensures you hit your gains and you hit them well.
As with most proteins, it could have been cheaper, and it's not to use as a replacement for your dietary needs. Moreover they could have a larger container.
Overall highly recommended and definitely for those who take their workouts seriously and want results.

Comments about Dymatize® Nutrition Elite Casein XT - Smooth Vanilla:

Don't know if product is effective or not, because I can't get pass the chunkiness. I used a shaker bottle with the blender ball and have not had problems mixing other protein shakes before this one. I shook the protein longer and added more water, but lots of chunks remain.

Comments about Dymatize® Nutrition Elite Casein XT - Smooth Vanilla:

I tried this product because I have used the whey protein and it tasted really good. However, the casein protein, not so much. It had a horrible taste and I only tried one scoop and it was so bad, I immediately returned it.

    Comments about Dymatize® Nutrition Elite Casein XT - Smooth Vanilla:

    Tastes like the frosting on frosted flakes cereal. There's absolutely no hint of any unpleasant smell or taste. If anything, it's a little addictive if you like sweets.

    All casein is suppose to clump a little bit which helps make it slow to digest (or good for sustained amino acid release overnight). So no complaints there.

      I mix this w/whey protein after working out. Since I workout in the evening, it sustains me thru the night. I also take it mixed the next morning. I tried it right before bedtime, to much weight to fast for me. The mixed combo works out great. At 55 yrs old, muscle weight is all I need and this stuff foots the bill.

      Good price. Good taste. A little grainy, but not bad at all, just a different consistency than other proteins. Easy to mix and great before bed, like other caseins, for that slow digestion. Supposedly, this 'XT' version is an extra slower digesting, but I wouldn't know if it was or wasn't.

          Absolutely fantastic! I wanted to try something new, so I got this! It tastes wonderful! Is high in protein, low fat/carbs. Its great for before bed and for breakfast. Definitely worth it. Obviously a little thicker and smoother than other proteins, mixes well and digests slowly, which helps with hunger too! so it keeps you full. This is by far my favorite protein by Dymatize
