Optimum Nutrition Casein is a protein source which digests slowly - this is the perfect supplement for just before you sleep as your body will break down (and release) the casein over the 8 hours of sleep. Optimum Nutrition Casein is the highest quality casein available and with added Aminogen (see below) you can be sure you are getting the most from your casein supplement. ON Casein is ideal when used with ON Gold Standard Whey in a night and day combination which is used by many top bodybuilders!
Slower Digestion with Optimum Nutrition Casein
Sometimes slower is better - especially when it comes to the rate of protein digestion. While rapid protein absorption is desirable immediately before or after exercise, delayed release is probably more beneficial throughout the remainder of the day.
Gold Standard Casein
Casein proteins are pH sensitive and gel in the acidic environment of the stomach. As a result, it can take more than twice as long for caseins to be broken-down into their amino acid subcomponents than whey and other proteins. Because of their unique time-released qualities, caseins are aptly described as anti-catabolic or muscle-protecting proteins.

What Is Aminogen?
Aminogen, a vital ingredient in high-quality protein supplements, is clinically proven to increase amino acid levels and boost nitrogen retention. Developed by Triarco Industries, Aminogen is a patented, designer enzyme which breaks down protein and improves amino acid absorption.
A natural, plant-derived enzyme, Aminogen is ideal for increasing lean body mass and strength and promoting deep muscle recovery. And Aminogen does all this while supporting protein digestion and reducing or eliminating the gas, bloating and constipation protein can sometimes cause. Get more out of your protein and get bigger, stronger…faster with Aminogen.
