If you're an athlete who trains hard, then you know the value of supplementing your diet with high-quality protein. Protein can help you recover faster and get stronger. And while many athletes do a great job of consuming enough protein during the day, they totally overlook one of the BEST times for muscle growth and recovery — and that's nighttime. That's right. During your eight or more hours of sleep, your body can go catabolic — meaning that it starts to break down muscle tissue.
That's why the smartest athletes address this problem by eating the right protein before bedtime. Labrada 100% Premium Micellar Casein Protein is a slowly digested milk protein that is high in muscle building amino acids, making it perfect for nighttime use or any other time that you need a protein that will "stay with you" for several hours. So how does it work? Casein in its micellar form has a unique molecular structure. It forms a "gel" in our stomach as it reacts with gastric fluids. Consuming micellar casein before bedtime elevates muscle building amino acids in your bloodstream for prolonged periods of up to 7 hours, thereby allowing your body to repair and build muscle tissue — while you sleep.
Labrada's Casein Protein packs 24g of high-quality casein in each serving, which provides over 5 grams of naturally occurring branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), which are critical components of muscular recovery and growth. Labrada Casein Protein also provides 5 grams of Glutamine and Glutamic Acid, which are two amino acids responsible for supporting muscular recovery and boosting immune system function.
The manufacturing of Labrada Casein Protein involves NO heat or acid treatment so the quality and integrity of the naturally occurring amino acids are preserved. Labrada Casein Protein is GLUTEN-FREE and ARTIFICIAL COLOR FREE.
