Combat Casein Protein
* High-Quality Micellar Casein
* Sustained Release Protein
* Contains all Essential Amino Acids
* No inferior caseinates used
Combat Casein Protein contains micellar casein, a high-quality protein powder derived from milk. Due to the large molecule size of casein, this form of protein takes a long time to digest and absorb. This means that after each shake your blood amino acids levels are sustained over a longer period of time, which makes it perfect for use before bed. As we are fasting when we sleep—unless you sleep-walk and sleep-eat—our blood essential amino acid levels tend to drop.
As essential amino acids are so important to areas of the body other than muscle, we actually degrade muscle protein, which is a reservoir for these crucial amino acids. This means, we actually become catabolic while we sleep, as we are breaking down muscle in order to maintain other areas of the body. Combat Casein is helpful in this instance, as these very same essential amino acids can be provided from the gut as we sleep, rather than solely relying upon muscle protein.
Combat Casein Protein is not only useful for night time, but can also be taken throughout the day. As casein is such a large protein molecule and takes time to digest, it is quite filling. This means it can make a tasty protein shake that is more filling than your average whey-based shake. Due to this, MusclePharm Combat Casein can be used between meals, providing only 120 calories per shake, or can also be used for the occassional meal replacement.
However, if you choose to use this as a meal replacement, a maximum of one meal per day is allowed, unless you take a multivitamin and mineral tablet daily.
