Slow-release protein for night time… this idea might leave some of you quite puzzled. Let’s start the story from the beginning then.
Casein and whey protein are the two types of protein that milk is made of – in the ratio 80/20. The main difference between these two lies in the way they are digested by the body. To illustrate this fact, let’s take an example. Imagine that you have a little garden to water. You can use the traditional watering can – it works perfectly fine and it’s a very fast and effective way to supply your plants with all the water they need. Another option would be to use an irrigation system with which water will be dripping slowly but continuously directly to the soil. So, whey protein is literally your watering can, showering your muscles with protein almost instantly, while casein is your irrigation system, ensuring a slow and sustained protein source.
Once ingested and in contact with the acids of the stomach, micellar casein forms a gel. This gel slowly drips out amino acids all along the digestive process, making sure to sustainably provide your body with these precious nutrients. This “technique” is perfect for all of you who work on building their muscles and want to make sure to regularly feed them with high quality protein, even during night time. Protein supports muscle growth and maintenance.
NXT Level Micellar Casein is a high quality and highly bioavailable source of slow-release protein. One single dose of 30g contains 80% of protein and also provides 5g of both naturally occurring glutamine and BCAA, allowing you to make the most out of your recovery time.
