Faster digesting protein is desirable immediately before and after exercise to help refuel recovering muscles, but slow digestion and absorption may be more beneficial at other times including bedtime when your body typically goes for hours without food.
Casein products are acid sensitive and thicken in the stomach. Compared to some other proteins, it can take longer for our Gold Standard 100% Casein™ to be broken down into its amino acid subcomponents.
By using only premium micellar casein as a protein source, we've created a formula that sets the standard for slow digesting protein support 24g of Micellar Casein.
Add one heaping scoop of ON Gold Standard 100% Casein to a shaker cup filled with 300-350ml of water. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds or till completely dissolved.
