Optimum Nutrition Natural 100% Casein Gold Standard Protein is desirable immediately before and after exercise to help refuel recovering muscles, but delayed digestion and absorption may be more beneficial at other times – including bedtime when your body typically goes for hours without food. Casein proteins are sensitive and tend to thicken in the stomach. Because of this, it can take more than twice as long for Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Natural 100% Casein to be broken down into its amino acid subcomponents than other proteins. Gold Standard Natural 100% Casein is also free of artificial flavors, sweeteners, and synthetic colors and uses only premium micellar caseins to create a protein that’s truly time-released.
Beyond The Basics

- Rich in Highly Anti-Catabolic MICELLAR CASEIN
- No Artificial Flavors, Sweeteners, or Synthetic Colors
- Over 5 g of BCAAs, Glutamine, and Glutamine Precursors per Scoop

SHAKER: Bringing a shaker cup with you to the gym is the best way to get a powerful dose of protein immediately after your workout. Just add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard 100% Casein to your shaker cup and then pour in 10-12 oz of you preferred beverage. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. BLENDER: Add one heaping scoop of Gold Standard 100% Casein to a blender filled with 10-12 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Then add 3-4 ice cubes and blend for an additional 30 seconds. 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 you favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon for about 30 seconds or until powder is dissolved.
