Echo Supplements on PhD Nutrition Casein Peptide
PhD Casein Peptide is a designer slow release protein supplement, ideal for taking either before you go to bed, during the day when your next meal will be in a few hours time or post workout if combined with a fast acting whey protein such as Pharma Whey HT+ or Pharma Pure.
The benefit of using a casein supplement (rather than a whey, egg or soya for example) is that casein isn't easily digested - it forms a 'gel' in your stomach which can take up to 8 hours to fully digest. All the while it is being digested you get a steady release of amino acids which have been shown to protect muscle breakdown. This is why Casein Peptide is the pefect pre-bed supplement. PhD Nutrition have improved on regular casein by adding in a couple of the most important amino acids for muscle growth and repair - leucine and glutamine, in addition to the high levels of essential amino acids found naturally in casein protein.
Research also shows that combining whey protein and casein post-workout can be more beneficial than taking whey protein on it's own - if you don't want to have to buy another dedicated post-workout shake then adding a scoop of Casein Peptide to your usual whey protein shake makes the perfect post-workout shake! This smaller 900g tub of Casein Peptide will last you 1 months if using a serving before bed only, or 2-3 weeks if using it post-workout as well.
