Casein protein is a slow releasing protein. Meaning you will have a sustained release of amino acids to the muscles during sleep.

What is 100% Micellar Casein?
Ever wondered what happens to your body and muscle repair while we catch our beauty sleep? (not like you need it). While you're lying there dreaming about hitting your next PB your body is becoming deprived of amino acids, and that all-important protein.
For the fitness fanatics among us, that's not a good thing! 100% Micellar Casein could be the perfect slow releasing protein that your body needs to recover during the night. Providing your body with a sustained release of high quality, pure protein at night helps drip feed the muscle with a continuous supply of amino acids. Packing an incredible 24.8g of protein, 0.4g of fat and 0.6g of sugar per 30g serving, and some unique flavours such as Choc Mint Brownie and Vanilla Creme, this shake is the ultimate nighttime protein cure.
At the moment the sports nutrition industry is bursting at the seams, full of incredible innovations. For individuals that may not be so sure on which supplements to choose, the sheer amount of what is available at our fingertips can become an overwhelming task. It's a good job THE PROTEIN WORKS™ have you covered with all the nutritional nuggets you could ever ask for. If you want to learn some more, take a look below at how it could help you.
What are the benefits of Micellar Casein?
The truth is that muscle repair doesn't just stop when your head hits the hay, it continues on throughout the night. Sleep offers an opportunity for recovery, recharging our batteries after a long day. How about giving it a helping hand with muscle recovery too? Makes sense, right? Micellar protein will provide a steady stream of amino acids where a whey protein wouldn't be able to... Recent investigations have shown that 40g of casein pre-bed increased muscle protein growth by 22% when compared with a placebo. Even better news, digestion was not impaired The high protein within this slow releasing muscle building powder contributes towards the growth in muscle mass and also the maintenance of normal bones. Is there anything this bedtime protein powder cant do? Maybe tell you a nighttime tale, and tuck you in, but that's beyond the point. We suppose you could use the pouch as a cuddly nighttime toy, but we wouldn't recommend that.
When should I use Micellar Casein?
Being crowned the champion of bedtime protein might give it away a little. But the simple answer to this question is that it's recommended to be consumed before catching some of those ‘zzz’s’. This allows your body to absorb and administer a continuous flow of protein so you can snore to your heart's content (don't worry we won't tell anyone, we all do it). However, because of Micellar Caseins ability to provide this slow release of protein also makes it an ideal shake to have throughout the day. Maintaining optimal protein levels will help you develop your overall physique and help reach your goals quicker and easier than ever.
Who is Micellar Casein For?
Micellar Casein Protein powder is literally for everyone and anyone that takes part in physical activities and wants to give their muscles a helping hand with growth and recovery. Male, female, bodybuilder or sprinter, micellar casein covers all areas of the sporting spectrum.
Perhaps you simply want to maintain healthy skeletal muscle to prevent muscle wastage? If that sounds like you then walk this way, add one to your basket and experience an awesome protein filled sleep! If not, then possible whey protein could be for you? Take a look at the difference between the two below.
What is the difference Micellar Casein and Whey Protein?
Wheying up the differences between Micellar and whey protein shows some very comparable results, with one main difference between the two. The rate of absorption!
While as we have described, Micellar Casein provides a sustained slow release of protein and amino acids, whey protein provides your body with an instant kick! The debate of which is better has been going for years, but the fact is neither is better than each other, they both have very valuable elements but just have their own place in the protein world. While Micellar casein is perfect for a source of nighttime protein, whey protein is ideal for post workout. Often, athletes use both in their diet routines, to get the best out of both worlds.
When is best to take Micellar Casein?
Its best to take Micellar Casein at night time, just before you decide to get that well-deserved rest. The awesome slow releasing protein blend will keep your body in tip-top shape through the duration of the night, meaning that you can wake up knowing your protein stores have been kept at optimal levels, helping your muscles to grow and repair. Don't forget that you can also use this protein shake during the day too!
