What is Pro Casein?
Casein makes up 80% of the total protein found in milk. The most peculiar characteristic of this type of protein is its slow absorption and digestion in the body. When ingested, it acts in such a way that it forms micelles in the stomach that take time to be digested and, as a result, also slows its absorption.
The release and absorption of amino acids from the casein can be prolonged for a period of time of 3 to 7 hours. As a result, micellar casein is the most optimal type of protein to take during periods of fasting, before sleep or times when no protein is to be ingested. The contribution of amino acids it provides is progressive.
Casein Pro is a high biological value protein: coming from milk, a source of animal origin, which has all the essential amino acids. Its great digestibility without causing any discomfort is because it has been enriched with Digezyme digestive enzyme complex.
What are the benefits of Life Pro Casein?
Gaining and maintenance of muscle mass
In periods of fasting or lack of nutrients, in which no food is ingested, the body can enter into a catabolic state and with it, lead to loss of muscle mass.
In periods of fasting or lack of nutrients, in which no food is ingested, the body can enter a catabolic state and with it, lead to loss of muscle mass.
The caseína contributes to its maintenance and promotes the recovery of damaged fibers after workouts. It nourishes the muscles and provides the necessary amino acids for a longer period of time than any other protein.
The main characteristic of this type of protein is that it is released much more gradually and slowly compared to other types of proteins.
It is the most recommended protein source for periods of fasting and before sleeping and to achieve a great contribution of satiety when consuming it (due to the micelles and the time it belongs in the stomach).
High biological value
It is a source of protein of high biological value: coming from milk, it has all the essential amino acids so it is not necessary to supplement with other supplements or foods to achieve this correct contribution. The essential amino acids can not be produced naturally by the body.
Properties of Casein Pro
Micellar casein only
Casein Pro has been elaborated only with casein micellar as a source of protein. No other type of protein was used in its composition.
The Digezyme Complex
Casein Pro has been enriched with Digezyme, a patented blend of digestive enzymes. Casein Pro contributes to promoting a correct and slow digestion,without producing heaviness or stomach discomfort that may occur due to the time required for this type of protein.
Digestive enzymes are found in the digestive system and their main function is to break down food into small molecules so that they can be absorbed by the intestine later.
How long to take Pro Casein?
The most recommended time is in long periods where we are not going to ingest food.
- In intermittent fasting, or by circumstances of the day, such as sleep: avoid catabolism, loss of muscle mass thanks to the sequential release of amino acids.
- Post-training: in order to repair the fibers damaged during training.
Before sleeping since we will be between 6 and 10 hours without making any contribution to protein.
