Optimum Gold Standard 100% Casein Review
Faster digesting amino acids are desirable immediately before and after exercise to help refuel recovering muscles, but slow digestion and absorption may be more beneficial at other times – including bedtime when your body typically goes for hours without food.
Optimum Gold Standard 100% Casein Review by Jay
I must say, paired with my daily after workout whey, this got me results quick. For a woman I naturally put on muscle easily, but this helped me take it to the next level. With my regimen of 16 oz worth of whey shake during the day and 12 oz of casein shake at night I gained 3 lbs of muscle in 4 weeks.
Optimum Gold Standard 100% Casein Review by Wolford
Optimum Gold tastes great, just like a cookies and cream milkshake when mixed in milk. Not so thick you can’t drink it but also not to thin. I take it at night before bed and it keeps me from being “starved” feeling in the morning.

I’ve been using this product for two months, and have noticed that my recovery after long runs and intense strength circuits is much faster. As a result, I’ve been able to train harder and become faster and stronger than I’ve eve been. i highly recommend this product.

WHAT IS MICELLAR CASEIN?
Micellar Casein is the slowest digesting form of casein. It is separated from milk through an ultrafiltration process. One of Micellar Casein’s unusual properties is its ability to gel during digestion so it can release a steady flow of amino acids over many hours.
