The benefits of Casein protein

Casein protein, a natural fraction found in milk offers the benefits of a sustained release of amino acids over a longer time period. Casein is absorbed more slowly by your body than any other type of protein, making it a great option at breakfast time, before bed or in between meals to help keep you fuller for longer. Research has shown that combining the slower releasing casein with the faster absorbing whey protein can offer the benefits of better protein utilisation by the body due to the combination of fast and slow release protein types. Our drinks have already done this for you so no need to buy any cows!
