An athlete’s worst nightmare is that his hard-earned muscle is being broken down in his sleep.
Pure Casein™ Protein, has a long-term effect in suppressing protein breakdown which your body needs to sustain for six to eight hours during your sleep without food.
In fact, a total release of amino acids in the bloodstream can last as long as 7 hours after ingestion of casein protein!
Whey Protein, in comparison, reaches a peak in blood amino acids and protein synthesis in about forty minutes and the total release ends in about an hour.
In other words, it’s an awesome muscle-sparing protein.Key Ingredients

Q. How do I determine when is the right time to take Casein protein vs. Whey protein during the day?
A. To effectively take advantage of whey and casein proteins, you need to use them at the correct times of the day. Casein protein is the only protein you should be taking before going to sleep. The reason is because your body needs to be sustained for six to eight hours during your sleep without food. You don’t want your hard-earned muscle being broken down in your sleep, so a protein that is slowly released over time is best. If you took whey protein before going to bed, it would do very little since whey is absorbed and used within an hour.
Whey protein should be used first thing in the morning and after workouts. If you have to go more than three hours without food during the day or are taking a protein shake as a meal replacement, you should use a blend of whey and casein – about 50/50. This will give you a quick shot of protein and a sustained release of protein to carry you through to your next meal. Finally, if you are eating every two to three hours, you can use whey protein by itself in between meals.
