Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Casein Banana Cream -- 4 lbs

Naturally and Artificially Flavored. Slow-Acting Protein. Aminogen Enhanced. Sometimes slower is better - especially when it comes to the rate of protein digestion. While rapid protein absorption is desirable immediately before or after exercise delayed release is probably more beneficial throughout the remainder of the day.  . Casein proteins are pH sensitive and gel in the acidic environment of the stomach. As a result it can take more than twice as long for caseins to be broken down into their amino acid subcomponents than whey and other proteins. Because of their unique time-released qualities caseins are aptly described as anti-catabolic or muscle-protecting proteins.

"optimun is well deserving of its good reputation for quality and value!
Their casein is a solid product and the banana is delicious, a definite must for those who take their diet seriously and pure casein allows me to mix whatever proportions i like with whey, as adverse to many pre whey mixed products.
good stuff, buy it today!
