Gen-Tec Casein Custard
Here we have the OG protein snack that has been keeping gym junkies fed for years, Gen-Tec Casein Custard. Casein is a slow-digesting protein that takes longer to break down and therefore prolongs the muscle protein synthesis response in the body. For this reason, it can be beneficial to have this product prior to bedtime if you are wanting to maximise your muscle building potential. Casein custard is also a great option for anyone who craves a sweet treat at night as it will satisfy those cravings whilst keeping calories under control and giving you a serve of high-quality protein. If you want to your dessert to be in line with your goals, get yourself a tub of Gen-Tec Casein Custard today!
Micellar Casein is pH sensitive and gel in the acidic environment of the stomach. As a result, it can take more than twice as long for casein to be broken down into their amino acid subcomponents than whey and other proteins. Due to their unique time-released qualities, caseins are aptly described as anti-catabolic or muscle-protecting proteins.
How can casein protein help with muscle gain?
In the body, proteins make up just about everything and the process of creating body tissues, particularly muscle, is heavily dependent on a steady stream of high-quality amino acids. When we consume a high protein meal and when we train, we trigger a process called muscle protein synthesis (MPS) which is absolutely crucial for laying down new muscle tissue and it is something that you should be aiming to trigger as much as possible during the day. Casein protein takes longer to digest and absorb, thus prolonging the MPS response in the body and what better time to do this than just before bed, which is why casein is such a great option for a pre-bed meal. If you can ingest casein prior to going to sleep, you are using the 7-8 hours that you are asleep extremely efficiently because your body is going to keep synthesising amino acids into new muscle as you sleep and recover.
