When to take M-Casein?
Mix 40g (1½ SCOOPS) with 350ml – 400ml of cold water, low fat milk, full cream milk or soymilk in a shaker or blender.
Take 1-2 times daily when a sustained protein release is required. Best times for use are before bed or between meals. Not recommended for use immediately after training.
How does M-Casein work? Pros?
Natural Muscle Protection: High levels of threonine, glutamine and arginine, the ‘glucogenic’ amino acids which lend themselves to glucose production during exercise and may prevent muscle breakdown.
Slowly Digested: Quality M-Casein proteins for sustained and efficient digestion for up to 7 hours, making it perfect for use before sleep or between infrequent meals.
Increased Amino Acid Absorption: The slow digestion rate provided by M-Casein helps improve the absorption rate of casein’s unique amino acids, including muscle sparing glutamine, threonine and arginine.
Prolonged Positive Nitrogen Balance: M-Casein’s unique gelling properties during digestion help slow the release of amino acids prolonging the body’s state of Positive Nitrogen Balance (PNB) for maximal muscle growth & recovery.
Naturally High in L-Glutamine: 20% of the amino acids in M-Casein are Glutamine to help spare muscle during training.
Naturally High in Calcium & Phosphorus: Two synergistic minerals that are key to athletic performance.
Calcium: Is essential for efficient muscle contractions.
Phosphorus: Can help decrease lactic acid levels during training. Phosphorus also produces high energy molecules such as ATP and Creatine Phosphate. These molecules power muscle contractions during weight training.
No Aspartame: Sweetened with sucralose for a pleasant taste and no unwanted compounds.
No Fillers or Stabilisers: Just 30g of high quality sustained release protein in each serve.
No Gluten: No cheap glutamine peptides derived from hydrolysed wheat or low quality wheat proteins making it suitable for coeliacs and people with wheat allergies.
Rich Dessert Texture: M-Casein is naturally thicker than WPI and mixes into a thicker, more dessert-like consistency. It can be used to make protein ‘pudding’ by adding half the recommended amount of liquid, or into a full bodied shake by using the recommended amount.
M-Casein: Is designed to promote muscle growth and recovery by keeping the body in a positive nitrogen balance between meals and especially overnight.
