Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Casein Creamy Vanilla -- 2 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.

Very Good
 July 18, 2013
"Received in Brazil, very fast delivery, took only 22 days!
About the product, very good, good taste, gives good recovery...one thing thou is that the cream vanilla makes it very creamy, so if you don't like that, you are going to need lot of liquid to mix it. I'm trying a different flavor next time."

"I dont have dificulties to mix it with water or milk! It has a good smell of vanilla, but its taste is very smooth., not very palatable, but fine to drink. Just after opening you can see that this product has a high quality. It does its job! I take right before bed."

Good Slow-Absorbing Protein
 June 4, 2012
"This is a good product from a company with a strong reputation for quality. Powder mixes well and tastes fine (I mix with 1 part OJ, 2 parts water).
Only downside is the rising cost of protein in general over the last year... but compared to others on the market this is on par from a value standpoint. Not any better or any worse from a price perspective."

"Excellent time-release protein, all with the quality of the already renowned brand Optimum Nutrition. It tastes good and is also a cost-effective, the only thing that this product is considered bad time to mix, and you may become waste at the end of the shake."

"I buy protein powder because my trainer feels it is an important part of my diet. This is the product he chooses. It has a high casein protein count. It makes a good vanilla type shake. I mix it with skim milk and ice."

Great product
 November 11, 2010
"It works. You need protein through the night and this product provides you with that. I experienced significant muscle gains after initially using this product. Just put 1-2 scoops in water and drink before you go to sleep. The gains will level off, but you just need to switch up your workouts and eat right. Give it a try for a month. It tastes good and is inexpensive."
