Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Casein
When it comes to protein digestion, slow and steady wins the race and this is where Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Casein comes in. Consuming casein protein is an easy way to increase your daily protein intake which is important for gaining muscle and supporting recovery. This particular type of protein takes longer to breakdown and digest than regular whey protein which prolongs muscle protein synthesis. For this reason, casein protein is likely to be better suited for after a workout whereas whey may be better to use before training. Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Casein comes in three amazing flavours which will leave you licking your lips.
