Elite Casein by Dymatize, is a casein protein supplement of slow digestion, which has an excellent amino acid profile and increases muscle growth. Elite Casein provides 24g of proteins per serving. It is very rich in Calcium, Glutamine and BCAA amino acids (10g per serving) which are constantly released into the blood stream over time. Unlike whey protein which has the ability of being absorbed within forty minutes, your body can continue to absorb casein protein for seven hours.
Given that muscle growth depends on the balance between the synthesis of proteins and the degradation of proteins, casein protein is considered to be a preservative muscle protein. Elite Casein gradually enters the blood stream, has very little impact on protein synthesis, but has a powerful effect on reducing protein degradation.
While your body rests, it does not receive the necessary nutrients and therefore Elite Casein by Dymatize is perfect for taking at that time, as by being of prolonged assimilation it will provide the body with nutrients to avoid a catabolic effect. Quick absorption is desirable for before and after exercise, more prolonged assimilation is of more interest for the rest of the day or the night.
