Optimum Nutrition 100% Casein 2 Lbs
Are you on the lookout for a new protein powder? Faster digesting protein is best used immediately before and after exercise to help refuel recovering muscles, but slow digestion and absorption may be more beneficial at other times throughout the day, including before bedtime when your body typically goes for hours without food. Optimum Nutrition's Casein Gold Standard not only supports muscle rebuilding, but helps with weight management by keeping you fuller, longer. Casein products are acid sensitive and thicken in the stomach. In comparison to other proteins on the market, Gold Standard's Casein takes longer to break down into amino acid. This formula, made from 100% Micellar Casein, sets the bar high for slow digesting protein products.
Each serving of Gold Standard provides 24 grams of Micellar Casein, and 5 grams of BCAAS. BCAAs have many benefits to the body, including reducing muscle soreness and reducing fatigue during a workout. Casein is also a great source of calcium, which has many health benefits of its own, like keeping your bones and teeth strong. You do not have to sacrifice taste with Gold Standard Casein, as this product comes in great tasting flavors including vanilla, banana cream, chocolate, chocolate peanut butter, and cookies and cream. With Gold Standard, you will feel like you're drinking a calorie dense milkshake instead of a protein packed nutritional drink that can actually help you lose weight. Order yours online today!

Directions & Dosage
Using a shaker cup is the easiest and most convenient way to mix up a consistently great casein shake every time. Just add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard 100% Casein to a shaker cup filled with 10-12 oz of your preferred beverage. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. TIP: Adjust the intensity of your Gold Standard 100% Casein by varying the amount of liquid that you use to prepare it. For a bolder flavor with slightly more body and sweetness, mix one heaping scoop with 8-10 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. For a milder tasting, less sweet shake, use 12-14 oz of liquid per scoop.
SPOON STIRRED: If you forgot your shaker cup or don't have time to get out the blender, you can just add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard 100% Casein to a glass filled with 10-12 oz of cold water, milk, or your favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon for about 30 seconds or until powder is dissolved.
SUGGESTED USE: Consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day through a combination of high protein foods and supplements. For best results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread evenly throughout the day.
