Another benefit is increased satiety (feeling of fullness or satisfaction). Casein exerts a slight pressure on the stomach walls. In effect, this pressure signals to the brain to stop eating because the stomach is full. Casein is the most slowly digested and absorbed type of protein. This helps create a "timed-release" effect, providing a steady stream of amino acids to your muscles over a long period of time. The net result is a greatly enhanced anti-catabolic environment which is much more friendly to growth and recovery.
Bodybuilders and athletes looking to build lean muscle, prevent muscle breakdown, and reduce recovery times, and individuals interested in improving the quality of their sleep can greatly benefit from casein.
Perhaps the most interesting kernel on casein to come from the scientific community is the Boirie study, which found that casein managed about a 31% increase in protein synthesis (to whey's 68%)... but also reduced whole-body protein degradation (catabolism) by 34%. More importantly, researchers found that casein contributed to a positive nitrogen balance an average of 7 hours after ingestion.
The Biorie study has since spurred further research of casein. Another study looked at the effect casein might have on body composition when used as part of a 12-week weight-training program. Participants were separated into two groups, each of which maintained a balanced diet including 75 grams of protein per day. The difference was in the sources of protein used: while the first group relied on whey-based drinks to reach their daily protein requirements, the second group made use of milk protein isolates (80% casein, 20% whey). At the end of the study, the milk protein isolate group had lost more fat (15.4 lbs. vs. 9.2 lbs.), gained more lean mass (9 lbs. vs. 4.4 lbs.), and gained more upper and lower body strength than the whey group.
Additional studies, though not as influential, have indicated casein may lower "bad" LDL cholesterol levels and increase "good" HDL cholesterol levels at the same time. In people whose immune systems were weakened by illness or disease, casein appears to demonstrate anti-viral and immune system-enhancing properties. Casein has even been linked to decreases in inflammatory factors in cardiovascular disease.
BEST SLOW RELEASE PROTEIN ON THE MARKET!
best casein protein out there. I also like strawberry flavor too. I wish i got the a 4 lb version because the 2 lb goes way too quick due to my consumption
The texture is thicker than whey which is to be expected from a casein based product but it mixes flawlessly also the banana flavour is not overpowering or sickly like some other brands versions which makes it easy to use on a regular basis without getting sick of.
When i used to use this before sleep i noticed less DOMS the next day and also less hunger in the morning recovery was more improved.
10/10 great quality milk based casein product that is more versatile than whey and makes great protein dessert that is very filling and great as a pre bed snack.
I'll end on a pleasant note: from time to time you may find that consuming a protein supplement will initiate the escape of foul and unpleasant odors from one of your body's orifices. If you ever suffer from this affliction, try taking another brand and/or form of protein.
Even if you're happy with the results of a particular brand/form of protein, it's probably best to rotate your supplements (just as its important to have a wide variety of foods in your diet) to keep your body from adjusting to one form of protein.
