Micellar Casein Protein

Micellar Casein Protein is the predominant protein found in milk. It makes up about 80% of the protein in cow's milk, while the remaining 20% of protein in milk is whey. Casein protein is extracted from the milk through ultra filtration, without the use of chemicals. This process increases the amount of bioactive milk peptides that support immune function as well as enhance muscle growth. Casein protein has an excellent amino acid profile and is primarily known as an extremely slow-digesting protein.

Casein protein is a slow-digesting protein because it forms a "gel” in the gut, which results in a steady release of amino acids into the blood stream over time. Research shows that when you consume casein, you will reach a peak in blood amino acids and protein synthesis between three to four hours. The total release of amino acids in the bloodstream, however, can last as long as 7 hours after ingestion of casein protein! Whey protein, in comparison, reaches a peak in blood amino acids and protein synthesis in about forty minutes and the total release ends in about an hour.

Casein protein slowly enters the blood stream and has very little impact on protein synthesis. It has a powerful effect in suppressing protein breakdown. It's an awesome muscle-sparing protein. Muscle growth is dependent on the balance of protein synthesis and protein breakdown. To tip the balance in your favor, you want to increase protein synthesis and decrease protein breakdown. You can achieve this by supplementing with whey protein (fast absorption/promotes protein synthesis) and casein protein (slow absorption/suppresses protein breakdown).

To effectively take advantage of whey and casein proteins, you must use them at the right times of the day. Casein protein is the only protein you should be taking before going to sleep. The reason for this is because your body needs to sustain for six to eight hours during your sleep without food. You don't want your hard-earned muscle being broken down in your sleep. Whey protein should be used first thing in the morning and after workouts. If you have to go more than three hours without food during the day or are taking a protein shake as a meal replacement, you should use a blend of whey and casein – about 50/50. This will give you a quick shot of protein and a sustained release of protein to carry you through to your next meal. Finally, if you are eating every two to three hours, you can use whey protein by itself in between meals.

There are three forms of casein protein: calcium caseinate, micellar casein and milk protein isolate. Calcium caseinate is the lowest quality among the three forms and is commonly used as a food ingredient. Micellar casein and the casein in milk protein isolate are identical. While micellar casein is 100% casein, milk protein isolate has both micellar protein and whey. As a result, milk protein isolate is a more economical choice between the two.

Remember, milk is 80% casein and 20% whey – just like the highest quality milk protein isolates have. One eight ounce glass of milk, however, has only 6.4 grams of casein, while one small scoop of a high quality milk protein isolate will have over 20 grams of casein protein! Mix your milk protein isolate in milk to get the most casein protein for best results.
