    Echo Supplements on Reflex Micellar Casein
    Reflex Nutriton's Micellar Casein is very simply the highest quality slow releasing protein shake available - you can be assured of a slow release of protein overnight of around 8 hours which is perfect. Micellar Casein is available in 5 delicious flavours, mixes well (although not as smooth as a whey protein) and is the perfect pre-bed protein shake.

    Reflex Micellar Casein - Manufacturer's Description
    Reflex Micellar Casein is a slow digesting protein. Manufactured using a low temperature ultra filtration, a superior manufacturing process.

    Reflex Micellar Casein - Ideal Slow Release Protein
    Reflex Micellar casein provides a lengthy release of amino acids because of its unique digestibility. It forms a gel in the stomach, slowing the transit time in the digestive system thus slowing the digestion of the protein. This makes it ideal when a slow and lengthy supply of protein is needed. The micellar casein offered by Reflex Nutrition is manufactured by ultra filtration of skimmed milk - this process removes excess lactose and fat.

    The resulting raw material is about 85% protein. Micellar Casein from Reflex Nutrition is not to be confused with acid casein or caseinates which are made using manufacturing processes which can denature the protein rendering it less valuable from a nutritional perspective. The protein found in Micellar Casein is un-denatured, providing approximately 80% Casein protein and 20% Whey protein.

    Research Backing Reflex Micellar Casein
    In a ground breaking study, carried out by Dr Yves Boire, the differences in metabolic responses of whey protein and casein were individually observed over a 7 hour period in 16 young & healthy volunteers. The findings were very interesting, and have shown that both Casein and Whey have very different applications when it comes to maintaining and building muscle tissue. Micellar Casein research findings:

    Reflex Micellar Casein Research Findings

    • Casein was found to inhibit muscle breakdown by 34% over a 7 hour period
    • Blood plasma amino acid concentrations remained significantly higher over a 7 hour period with casein compared to whey
    • Blood plasma amino acid concentrations dropped dramatically after 3 hours in the group consuming whey
    • Although blood plasma levels dropped dramatically with whey, the net increase in protein synthesis was boosted by 68%

    Recommended this product by Dave from Echo! - Great choice, swapped from using ON and saved money too! what a service from Echo.

    product does as it states. Taste is good, texture is that of a casein so cant complain. great before bed or during the day if you are not going to intake protein for a prolonged period of time. As always, price competitive Echo wins again!

    Top product and works out great value because you only use casein once a day - a tub lasts about a month for me, using cottage cheese the other nights for a change! Oh and chocolate for the flavour!

    Had to give this a 3 stars cause it dont mix so good. The quality is as good as something like gold standard casein but it ain't even in the same game taste and mixing wise!!

    reflex casein is great - really fills me up I use it all day long as my only source of protien. only looses a star because it doesnt mix as well as a whey shake does.
