VPA Micellar Casein is a type of dairy protein found in cows milk. It is a high quality, bioavailable protein that contains all the essential amino acids. Unlike whey protein, which is rapidly digested, casein is slowly digested and absorbed. This because casein is not very soluble in water, and this makes the protein the clump together to firm spheres called micelles. Our bodies take longer to digest and absorb casein protein micelles than it does whey protein. This slow digestion of casein provides a sustained release of amino acids into the blood stream, which in turn provides the building materials for muscle repair and growth.
Features and Benefits:
The benefits of casein powder come from being slowly digested and absorbed. This is ideal for people who have a long time between protein meals and for those who want to maximise muscle building overnight. Our body likes to keep a ready supply of free amino acids in our blood stream to provide the building blocks of numerous structures, enzymes and hormones. To keep this supply of amino acids up, our body will break down muscle tissue if we are not supplying a steady stream of amino acids by eating foods that contain protein. The slow digestion of casein powder provides a steady stream of amino acids over a longer period of time. For this reason, VPA Micellar Casein has the following benefits:
- Casein powder keeps you feeling full for longer.
- Casein powder increases muscle growth overnight.
- Micellar Casein powder decreases muscle loss when there is an extended time between meals.
- Casein powder improves sleep.
