Product Description

Flavor: Creamy Vanilla | Size: 2 Pound

Optimum Nutrition 100% Casein Protein, Creamy Vanilla

Slow Digesting Premium Micellar Casein Protein

While rapidly digesting whey protein is desirable immediately before and after exercise to help support muscle recovery, a slower digesting casein protein is the better choice between meals and especially right before bed when your body can go for hours without nutritional support. Casein proteins thicken in the acidic environment of the stomach and, compared to other proteins, it can take longer for our Gold Standard 100% Casein to be broken down into its amino acid subcomponents. By using only premium micellar casein as a protein source, we’re created a formula that sets the standard for slow digesting protein support.

Beyond The Basics

24 grams of slow-digesting micellar casein per serving with 60% of the daily value for Calcium. Provides nearly 5 grams of naturally occurring BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine & Valine) and nearly 5 grams of naturally occurring Glutamine & Glutamic Acid in every scoop.


Thicker, Richer Shakes

While whey protein shakes tend to be thinner in consistency, casein protein powder creates a thicker more richly flavored shake. When mixed into cold water or milk, micellar casein resembles an ice cream milkshake in texture. It’s a solid foundation for using an electric blender to create endless varieties of smoothies with fruits, nuts and other ingredients.

Make Protein Ice Cream

Satisfy your sweet tooth with an amino acid packed protein treat you’ll look forward to using as a before bed snack. Simply mix one scoop into half the amount of water or milk you normally use (5 to 6 ounces), place in the freezer for about 5 minutes and enjoy!

Optimal Usage Occasions

Before bed to provide amino acid delivery while you’re asleep and between meals for lasting protein support.

The Brand You Trust For Quality

Optimum Nutrition (ON) was founded in 1986 with a mission to set higher standards for the sports nutrition industry. As one of the few manufacturers to own and operate state-of-the-art production facilities that are GMP compliant, ON’s commitment to quality is uncompromising. You’ll appreciate the extra effort the industry leader puts into assuring ingredient purity, effortless mixing and exceptional taste.

Flavor Name: Chocolate SupremeSize Name: 4 Pound
Yes I am science Guy so I would like to bring some scientific viewpoint, trying to keep my review Jargon free, or very simple for the least.

1. Do I need Casein Supplement.

Almost every Human being can benefit from Casein, however everyone DOES NOT need a Casein supplement. I would recommend this supplement to only someone who is at intermediate or advance fitness levels (rest will do good with cottage cheese- provided you relish it). If you are a beginner, than please stay away from pure Casein supplement for a while, its not the starting point by any mean and you will not get much benefit out of it. Beginners are better off with Whey only or blend supplements.

2. Hey is Casein better than Whey?

Yes and No. The big question is compared to What. If one is looking for a general protein source, then NO way. Caesin is not a well rounded and balanced protein, it is a specialized protein. In other words, its Amino Acid profile is not balanced. Its inclined towards recovery ( high Glutamine and Anti Catabloic properties). Lastly its Biological value is only 77 compared to 104 of Whey.

However, what it does for the body, no other protein can. It digests very very slow and release rich amount of Glutamine and other Amino acids which helps you recover and stay Anabolic.

3. What is Special about ON Casein

First and foremost, its not exactly the most delicious and consistent protein by nature. Nothing that ON can do to change it, this is the nature of Casein. But, what ON does is that it gives you the best of Casein, the Micellar Casein. Making it the best Casein protein supplement in the market.

4. Whats the heck with Casein and Why is Casein protein more expensive than Whey?

Almost any company can produce decent, good-tasting, cheap whey, but doing the same for casein is a trickier proposition. ON has done a solid job with this casein. Mixing it with low-fat or nonfat milk makes for a nice, creamy shake.

A couple of tips: don't bother trying to mix this with a fork or a shaker bottle. You'll get clumps and you'll hate it. Casein demands a blender.

Tip II: Casein has always been the "overnight" protein because of its slower digestion rate than whey, but recent scientific evidence suggests that combining casein with whey in your post-workout shake gives better results than whey alone. Heck, mix the two in all your shakes, except the pre-workout shake, where you'll want just the quick-hitting whey.

Flavor Name: Chocolate SupremeSize Name: 2 Pound
This is the most cost efficient and quality ratio of Casein you can probably find. With 2 day shipping with Amazon Prime and getting this every month automatically is a deal thats out of this world. I have tried several flavors, some better than others but thats not what matters. Just go with the cheapest, the chocolate for 2lb or cookies and cream for the 4lbs. Regardless of the taste, which isn't bad by the way, taking this protien before you go to bed is the best thing you can do, but you are not doing, towards building a better body.

You can really feel the filling effects of this stuff as you lay there and knowing your muscles have adequate nutrition to get them through the night is peace of mind. I can honestly say since taking this, i have slept better and i have made more gains than ever before. Its not a miricle pill or rocket science, its plain good ole nutrition for your body, when you need it the most.

Combine Casein and Whey during different times of the day for optimal effects.

What i have found what works best for me is the following.

Morning: Shake of 25 percent Casein, 75 percent Whey.

Before workout: Shake of 100 percent Whey.

After workout: Shake of 75 percent Whey, 25 percent Casein.

Before bed: Shake of 100 percent Casein.

I found this works best for me after a lot of tweeking, but for others depending on protien needs, it may vary.

Buy some today and enjoy.

A lot of reviews stated that Casein clumps up and you'll need a blender to effectively take this. This is not true. I just put a heaping scoop in my BlenderBottle, shook 20-25 times and the shake is consistent throughout with no clumping or powder stuck to the sides. For those that are interested, here's how I'm supplementing with protein:

- AM whey shake right when I wake up to quickly get protein back into my system
- 2 hours after breakfast - casein shake (will slow release over the next 6-7 hours)
- Small whey shake 30 minutes before working out (at 6PM)
- Big whey/casein mixed shake immediately after working out (60% whey). Whey will flood your system quickly, casein will time release.
- THE MOST IMPORTANT PART: casein shake immediately before bed. This will limit your body to entering a catabolic state only towards the end of your sleep as it will remain in your system 6-7 hours. Trick: I've heard if you eat a tbsp of all-natural peanut butter before the shake, it can slow the release of casein and possibly prevent you from entering a catabolic state altogether - not sure about this though.

Also, if you're doing as many shakes as I am, buy a BlenderBottle and only mix with water. This reduces the amount of time spent on taking supplements dramatically. Put a little water in the bottle, add protein, shake-shake-shake, pound it, clean, DONE.

Good luck!
