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 GNC Pro Performance® 100% Casein Protein - Chocolate:

    I take this every night. Yes, it's hard to mix, that's just the nature of some powders not being very soluble, get over it and keep stirring.
    I've gained 8 lbs in 7 weeks by taking this plus the whey in the morning and the Pro Perf AMP during workouts. 4 weight training days each week using the Jim Stoppani Shortcut to Size 12 week program.

      Comments about GNC Pro Performance® 100% Casein Protein - Chocolate:

      I love to have a casein shake every night before bed. I always get hungary at night so an awesome way to cure my sweet tooth without cheating is having my shake and I have a hard time going to bed without it. I usually blend it with ice and cinnamon, for a treat I add greek yogurt and sugar-free pudding! I am writing this review to get the the coupon for 10% off my next purchase after having the casein shipped to my house.

          Comments about GNC Pro Performance® 100% Casein Protein - Chocolate:

          I tried this cassein as the GNC store i went into did not have any other cassein options. I had originally gone there to get 100% Gold Standard but they only carried the Whey protein. I use cassein as a before bed drink and Whey as my post work-out drinks and last night was the first night i used this drink. It tasted terrible and I could not get it to mix for the life of me! While i normally do not have high expectations for GNC brand products, this was extra disappointing especially becuase i only purchased it becuase they didnt have what i wanted even though it is on the website. I do not know how the results will be from using this protein as last night was the first time i drank it. I'm not sure I will finish it, may just go to Vitamin Shoppe for the 100% Gold standard.

          If you are considereing a cassein protein, spend the extra money and do not buy this GNC brand.

            I use this protein, without fail, every night right before I go to bed. It tastes great, and is sweet and chocolatey enough to satisfy my late-night sweet cravings. It mixes really well, but is thick (as casein is SUPPOSED to be). Since using this powder I've noticed that I'm not nearly as sore the day after a workout, and I've started to notice more gains in my muscle development. I haven't got anything bad to say about it; it's working great for me!

              Comments about GNC Pro Performance® 100% Casein Protein - Chocolate:

              This is the first casien I have used. Didn't really know what to expect. Purchased to to take as meal replacement or before bed on workout days. Did not taste bad, but could use some improvement. Did not experience any clumping issues in blender bottle as some did. However I did decide to try as some suggested and use a blender to mix it. Also used milk instead of water and added 1Tbsp of peanut butter. The taste was wonderful with the milk and peanut butter. Have also noticed a decrease in soreness the morning after my workouts.

              Taste a little bit better than the on 100 gold standard but still has the same quailties as far as clumping in a shaker. I would suggest just using a blender if you are going to buy this product.

                Only the second casein protein I've bought. Easy to mix but you have to use a lot more water than with a whey shake. I seem to be less sore the next day after working out not sure if that is all because of the protein though.

                  Comments about GNC Pro Performance® 100% Casein Protein - Chocolate:

                  This product is definitely all it promises. I take this every night and can feel the difference next morning. Before I started using this product, I had muscle soreness the entire day next day. After using this, I just feel the tightness in the muscles and very less soreness.

                  I would suggest mixing this with water rather than milk because even after mixing with water, the shake is very thick and I feel full.

                  The only thing I don't like is the serving size. Having only 21 servings per containes makes it incomplete. The servings should be increased to a month's supply.
