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 Natural Gold Standard™ 100% Casein to be broken down into its amino acid subcomponents than other proteins. Natural Gold Standard™ 100% Casein is also free of artificial flavors, sweeteners, and synthetic colors and uses only premium micellar caseins to create a protein formula that’s truly time-released.

BEYOND THE BASICS
  • No Artificial Flavors, Sweeteners, or Synthetic Colors.
  • Loaded with Micellar Casein.
  • 24 grams of time-released protein per serving.
  • Contains AMINOGEN® digestive enzymes to enhance utilization.
  • › Nearly 5 grams of BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine).
  • Nearly 5 grams of Glutamine & Glutamine Precursors in every scoop.

Supplement Facts
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” Natural Gold Standard™ 100% Casein with “faster” proteins like Natural 100% Whey Gold Standard™ or Natural Pro Complex® at different times for maximum effectiveness. Take Natural Gold Standard™ 100% Casein immediately before bed and in-between meals when delayed protein delivery is desired. Drink Natural 100% Whey Gold Standard™ or Natural Pro Complex® proteins before and immediately after workouts for a rapid “shot” of amino acids.

SHAKER: Using a shaker cup is the easiest and most convenient way to mix up a consistently great casein shake every time. Just add one heaping scoop of Natural Gold Standard™ 100% Casein to your shaker cup and then pour in 10-12 oz of your preferred beverage. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds.TIP: Adjust the intensity of your Natural Gold Standard™ 100% Casein by varying the amount of liquid that you use to prepare it. For a bolder flavor with slightly more body and sweetness, mix one scoop with 8-10 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. For a milder tasting, less sweet shake, use 12-14 oz of liquid per scoop. 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 rounded scoop of Natural 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 Natural Gold Standard™ 100% Casein an even more powerful 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 rounded scoop of Natural 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.

Health Notes

Casein Protein

Casein Protein
  • 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:

Used for AmountWhy
Athletic Performance
Refer to label instructions 2 stars[2 stars]
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.
Obesity
Refer to label instructions 2 stars[2 stars]
Casein protein in milk may aid weight loss due to its effect on appetite, calorie burning, and body composition.
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 Optimum Nutrition GOLD STANDARD™ NATURAL 100% CASEIN-Chocolate Creme:

Its nice to be able to get good Casein like ON without the sucralose but this chocolate flavor is pretty bad. Skim makes it a little better but the best I have found is to add 2 tbs of peanut butter. Goes without saying you MUST mix this in a blender - I pitty the fool that thinks they can get a good consistency with a shaker cup.

      Comments about Optimum Nutrition GOLD STANDARD™ NATURAL 100% CASEIN-Chocolate Creme:

      As mentioned by others, a lot of water and preferably a mixer i suggested. Otherwise it gets lumpy and hard to swallow.
      I like to take this before going to bed, or after breakfast. And I like to think it's all "Natural".

      Comments about Optimum Nutrition GOLD STANDARD™ NATURAL 100% CASEIN-Chocolate Creme:

      This stuff is excellent for "sticking to your bones." My metabolism is getting faster, so it's hard to stay full-feeling. Well, this stuff does the trick. I usually have a scoop mixed with my normal protein before breakfast, one scoop with PLENTY of water before bed. LOTS of liquid is the key. Not enough water can make this stuff more like pudding than shake. But it does the trick for a good, slow-burning protein supplement.

        this is a great product all natural (I hope since the label states that) but beware the vanilla flavored one taste disgusting and highly chemical, making me wonder if those powders are indeed all natural as advertised.
