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. Optimum 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% Optimum Casein to be broken down into its amino acid subcomponents than other proteins. By blending premium micellar and calcium caseins, we've created a protein formula that's truly time-released. Typical Amino Acid Profile (Miligrams Per Serving): Essential Amino Acids (EAAs):Tryptophan 292, Valine 1609, Threonine 1039, Isoleucine 1312, Leucine 2129, Lysine 1822, Phenylalanine 1144, Methionine 644. Conditionally Essential Amino Acids (CAAs): Arginine 866, Cystine 79, Tyrosine 846, Histidine 688, Proline 2421, Glutamine & Precursors 4950. Nonessential Amino Acids (NAAs): Aspartic Acid 1589, Serine 1396, Glycine 510, Alanine 664.
Right before or after training, rapidly digesting whey protein helps start recovery, a process that can take up to 48 hours. Optimum Casein is Perfect Between meals and before bed, when nutritional support won’t be available for a while, casein protein can help provide longer lasting amino acid support. Optimum Casein proteins are pH sensitive and gel in the acidic environment of the stomach. As a result, it can take longer for caseins to be broken-down into their amino acid subcomponents than whey and other proteins. Because of their unique slow-digesting qualities, caseins are described as anti-catabolic or muscle-protecting proteins.
