Time for bed? Time for M-Casein. Sleep is the prime time when it comes to recovery and repair, and regrowth of your muscles (yes, the gains). Time to take advantage of this! M-Casein keep your muscles and body fuelled with the nutrients and protein compounds your body needs to recover at its best, in a slow and sustained release. Therefore, with M-Casein, you can expect 7 hours long of consistent absorption of protein, vital amino acids and key nutrients. Whether your chasing faster and better recovery, consistent muscle growth or simply a fuller feeling for a morning training session, M-Casein is the perfect solution!
- Sustained and balanced release of protein for up to 7 hours - Premium quality 100% micellar protein - Rich in recovery-promoting amino acids and performance nutrients calcium and phosphorus - Easy to digest, being gluten, filler and aspartame free
M-Casein is one of the most optimal proteins for recovery that exists. M-Casein has long been known for, and remains to be the best protein in the business when it comes to overnight recovery and muscle growth. Therefore, you can grow and repair while you sleep, and benefit from a sustained protein release all night long. M-Casein contains Quality micellar casein proteins - therefore causing for sustained and efficient digestion for up to 7 hours!
M-Casein also contains an optimal amount and dosage of amino acids which function to both prevent muscle breakdown outside of training periods, and facilitate enhanced glucose production to create energy for your sessions. This is through naturally high levels of threonine, glutamine and arginine, a trio often known as the 'glucogenic' amino acids. Combined with the slow release and digestion rate M-Casein provides of these nutrients, the absorption of these amino acids is significantly increased. Additionally, this slowed release is shown to prolong the body's state of PNB (Positive Nitrogen Balance). Within a state of PNB, the overall protein concentration within the blood is higher, and the body is in a state of growth and tissue repair.
One amino acid contained within M-Casein, Glutamine, is one of the most important amino acids to the body - particularly during periods of high training. Glutamine has a function within the body's immune system. Therefore, at any site of damage of invasion (whether it be from small training muscular tears, major injuries, or pathogenic attack), Glutamine plays a major role in facilitating the body's defence and repair systems are working directly on that site. Therefore, Glutamine plays a huge role not only within muscle recovery, but in whole-body wellness and your ability to continue training at your best too. M-Casein contains a 20% amino acid concentration of glutamine - a significant dosage to ensure the maximal effects from Glutamine are reaped!
M-Casein also contains impressive levels of a number of key nutrients and minerals which play an important role in achieving optimal athletic performance. This includes Calcium and Phosphorus. Not only is calcium good for strong bones (like your mum would've told you) - but its also essential for efficient muscle contractions too! Phosphorus plays a crucial role in decreasing lactic acid levels during training. However, more importantly, it is also involved in the creation of ATP - especially during short, high intensity exercise - like hitting new 1RMS! ATP is the muscular unit of energy.
Finally, International Protein went to the extra lengths when creating M-Casein to ensure that it was as clean, natural and easy to digest as possible. M-Casein is 100% free from aspartame, fillers, stabilisers and gluten. Instead, you get just 30g of premium, high quality protein instead. It is sweetened with Sucralose for a DELICIOUS taste, and the consistency of M-Casein is rich and dessert like.
Is this product Vegan?
This product contains whey, which is derived from milk, and is therefore an animal-based product. Thus, this product is not suitable for a vegan lifestyle, or those with a lactose-intolerance.
Does this product contain any banned substances?
No, this product has been tested and confirmed to contain no banned substances. However, we advise that the list of banned substances as noted by the Australian Regulatory Board, ASADA, changes very frequently. For utmost assurance, please consult the ASADA Supplement Checker or contact the MAK Crew.
Is this product safe during pregnancy?
Use of this product is advised against for women during pregnancy without prior consultation with a medical professional. However, minimal evidence of adverse effects exist, and several sources and medical research projects have determined that women during pregnancy require a slightly increased protein intake to support optimal growth and health. Therefore, if choosing to use, consult a medical professional, and ensure the product uses all natural ingredients.
Is this product Gluten Free?
This product does contain traces of gluten, and we advise against use for those following a celiac or gluten-free diet.
We recommend a serving size of 1 & 1/2 heaped scoops (40g).
To mix, combine with 350-400mL of water or almond milk (cold tastes best!), and use a shaker or blender to mix.
Depending on your dietary protein goals, several servings may be taken throughout the day (up to 3).
This product can be used at a variety of times - either directly post-workout to aid muscle recovery, throughout the day as a convenient meal or snack, or mixed into smoothies or baked goods (such as pancakes) to increase protein intake. However, as a casein product, M-Casein will provide a sustained protein release - so is most often used as a bedtime shake to keep you fuelled and growing all night.
