Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Casein is a high quality slow digesting whey protein powder.
Casein, similar to whey, is derived from a milk protein source. It has been shown to stay longer in the digestive tract thus the amino acids can be absorbed slowly. For this reason casein is commonly taken a few hours before bed or during a prolonged period of time where you are unable to get nutrients in, giving the body sufficient time to take in all the amino acids.

When Do I Take It?
Because full digestion of 100% Casein takes between 6 to 8 hours, it is best used when you will experience a prolonged period of time where you're not able to eat a wholefood meal such as before bed, through the day etc.. Simply mix the powder with water in a Supps42 shaker, shake it up, and drink away!
We will mention that Casein is a lot thicker than normal whey protein so use more water than what you normally would!
