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 intensity of your 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 heaping 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.
PACKETS: Add one Packet 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.
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 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 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 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: 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" Gold Standard 100% Casein with "faster" proteins like Gold Standard 100% Whey or Pro Complex at different times for maximum effectiveness. Take Gold Standard 100% Casein immediately before bed and in between meals when delayed protein delivery is desired. Drink Gold Standard 100% Whey or Pro Complex proteins before and immediately after workouts for a rapid "shot" of amino acids.
Warnings: DO NOT USE AS A SOLE SOURCE OF NUTRITION FOR WEIGHT LOSS OR MAINTENANCE. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN.
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 products 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.
- Promotes recovery: Casein protein provides the slow and steady flow of amino acids for a long time. It will keep feeding your hungry muscles to repair and recover quickly.
- Supports lean muscle building: Casein protein is anti-catabolic. Hence it will help to maintain your hard-earned muscles, build new muscle tissue and promote lean muscle growth.
1 ) WHAT IS CASEIN?
Casein protein is another derivative of milk protein loaded with amino acids. Due to its slow-digesting feature, when consumed, forms a lump in your stomach and releases the amino acids in the bloodstream at slow and steady pace for up to 7 hours.
2 ) WHAT ARE THE TYPES OF CASEIN?
- Calcium Caseinate: It is the form of protein produced from the casein found in skim milk. Insoluble casein is extracted and processed with the chemical processes to form calcium caseinate. It is highly soluble protein and doesn’t form any lumps in the stomach.
- Micellar Casein: This is the purest form of casein found in the market. It is also known as anti-catabolic because when consumed, it clots in the stomach and releases amino acids which are necessary to repair and grow the muscles.
3 ) WHAT IS THE RIGHT TIME TO TAKE CASEIN?
Because of its slow-digesting property, it is best to take it before bedtime or unavoidable fasting to feed your hard earned muscles mass for a long period of time.
4 ) DOES IT HAVE ANY SIDE EFFECT OR ALLERGY?
Casein is not preferable to people who are lactose intolerants as casein protein are high in lactose and calcium. It may cause gas, stomach cramps or bloat.
5 ) WHEY OR CASEIN OR BOTH?
Whey is fast digesting while casein is slow-digesting protein. Research shows that consuming both together increases the performance and reduces the body fat composition.
