Time release protein shake
It has long been known that there are benefits of eating protein at 3-4 hour intervals to aid optimal recovery. However, there are times during the day and evening where having access to protein, whether from food or nutritional supplements may not be possible.
Micellar Casein is a form of milk protein, which has been proven to breakdown slowly over a longer period of time when compared to other protein supplements such as whey protein. The benefit is that the protein can take up to 7 hours to completely digest and be utilised, making Micellar Casein the perfect protein product to use when you cannot have access to protein for an extended period of time. Because of these benefits, many athletes will use Micellar Casein prior to sleeping to maintain a state of muscle support whilst they are sleeping.
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.
And just to prove that we deliver on our label claims, all of our protein products are tested in our in house protein testing facility and the results are published on our website. We also have batches randomly rest by independent, ISO accredited laboratories.
