Gold Standard 100% Casein
Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Casein proteins are desirable immediately before and after exercise to support muscle growth and maintenance, however casein proteins may be more beneficial at other times – including bedtime when your body typically goes for hours without food.
Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Casein proteins are acid sensitive and thicken in the stomach. Casein is best utilized before bedtime to help maintain muscle mass while your body is in a fasted state. By using only premium micellar casein as a protein source, ON has created a formula that sets the standard for slow digesting protein support.
Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Casein is one of the highest quality forms of casein. It is separated from milk through an ultrafiltration process. One of Micellar Casein’s unusual properties is its ability to gel during digestion.
