Faster digesting protein is desirable immediately before and after exercise to help refuel recovering muscles, but slow 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 thicken in the stomach. Compared to some other proteins, it can take longer for our Gold Standard 100% Casein™ to be broken down into its amino acid subcomponents. By using only premium micellar casein as a protein source, we've created a formula that sets the standard for slow digesting protein support.
Beyond The Basics:
◾ Best-Selling Micellar Casein.
◾ Nearly 71% Protein by Weight (24 g of Protein per 34 g Serving Size).
◾ 24 grams of Slow-digesting micellar casein per serving.
◾ Nearly 5 grams of Naturally Occurring BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine, and Valine) per serving.
◾ Nearly 5 grams of Naturally Occurring Glutamic & Glutamine Acid in Every Scoop.
✅ Suggested use
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 Gold Standard 100% Casein™ to a shaker cup filled with 10-12 oz of your preferred beverage. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds.
Tip: Adjust the flavor and texture of your Gold Standard 100% Casein™ shake by varying the amount of liquid that you use to prepare it. For a bolder flavor with a slightly thicker body and more sweetness, mix one scoop with 8-10 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. For a thinner, milder tasting, less sweet shake, use 12-14 oz of liquid.
◾ 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 fresh or frozen fruits, peanut butter, flaxseed oil, coconut and other ingredients, you can make an even more delicious shake. Stack Your Shake: Customize your Gold Standard 100% Casein™ shake by adding recovery products like Creatine, Glutamine and BCAA powders.
◾ 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.
◾ Suggested Use: For healthy adults, consume enough protein to meet your daily protein requirements with a combination of high protein foods and protein supplements throughout the day as part of a balanced diet and exercise program.
