Buying Casein Protein Supplements

Why Buy Protein Supplements?

Almost everyone knows that the main thing the body needs to build muscle is protein but do you really have to go out and buy a protein supplement? Well, short answer is........there is no short answer (sorry). Diet and nutrition is a tricky thing when trying to build or maintain muscle, not enough protein could prevent you from putting on size or lean muscle and too much (is there such a thing as too much, bro) protein can possibly lead to kidney stones or other side effects. The best case scenario is that we eat nutrient dense food to account for all vitamins, minerals and proteins but lets face it who eats like that and who even has time for that. This is where protein supplements, key word supplements, play an important role and can help achieve a nutrient enriched diet leading to proper weight management, muscle building and better performance both mentally and physically. So, do you need to buy protein supplements????? Well that's really up to you and your own needs and goals......but if you are looking to buy we are here to help and to provide you with protein supplements for all types of nutritional needs!

What is Casein Protein?

Casein is dairy protein and accounts for almost 80% of all proteins found in cow's milk. Casein is rich in Amino Acids which are essential for muscle protein synthesis. What makes Casein protein different from other proteins is its ability to stay in the GI tract longer due to its glue like consistency. Why is this important? Well, if you are an athlete with a busy schedule and cannot down a protein shake every couple of hours or eat a protein enriched meal, Casein protein allows for an extended release of proteins fueling the muscles for up to eight hours. This makes it super convenient specifically for those looking to remain anabolic (muscle building) throughout the day or even in the night for advanced athletes.

Benefits of Casein Protein:

  • Casein Protein is rich in Amino Acids which stimulates muscle protein synthesis and activates mTOR pathway leading to muscle growth and proper maintenance.
  • Convenient and Simple to supplement with
  • Ideal for individuals that are short on time and that are very active
  • Complete protein source
  • Can be used as an appetite suppressor since it promotes a fullness feeling
  • Provides anti-catabolic properties for longer periods of time than rapidly-digesting proteins
  • Is a rich source of calcium which may be beneficial for bone health and fat loss
