If you're looking for a shake to have before bed, to stave off overnight catabolism, then Calcium Caseinate is the perfect choice. One 30g serving provides 27g of slow digesting protein, ensuring a sustained supply of amino acids to your muscles throughout the night. What's more, each serving of Calcium Caseinate contains over 20% of anti-catabolic glutamic acid. Calcium Caseinate is a biologically-unique grade of protein derived from milk, and is low in fat, lactose and sodium. In addition, Calcium Caseinate boasts an impressive nutritional profile that's naturally rich in amino acids, protein and calcium. What is its use? Despite having the same high quality rating as traditional whey isolates, Calcium Caseinate is more slowly utilised based on its coagulating properties. This slow digestion process allows the body to absorb more of the amino acids and peptides, while offering a steady and prolonged supply of nitrogen to muscle tissues. The slow-release makes Calcium Caseinate a great choice of protein before bed or when one knows they may not be consuming a high protein meal/supplement for at least a few hours. BULK POWDERS Calcium Caseinate is instantised for easy mixing. Perhaps the most striking difference between whey and casein is the rate of digestion and absorption into the body. After consuming whey proteins there is a rapid rise in levels of blood amino acids which returns to baseline in approximately 2 hours. Casein, however, coagulates in the stomach, forming a curd, and is digested far more slowly, leading to a more moderate rise in blood amino acids that is sustained for up to 7 hours. So in terms of muscle hypertrophy, whey can be considered a 'fast protein' promoting protein synthesis . Calcium Caseinate would however be classified as a 'slow protein', slowing the breakdown of protein to the extent that it is 'anti-catabolic'.
