The True Strength of Casein

Rapid protein use is desireable immediately before and after exercise to help refuel recovering muscles, but delayed digestion and absorption may be more beneficial at other times - including bedtime when your body typically goes for hours without food. Casein proteins are acid sensitive and tend to thicken in the stomach. Because of this, it can take more than twice as long for the Gold Standard Natural 100% Casein to be broken down into its amino acid subcomponents than other proteins. Gold Standard natural 100% Casein is also free of artificial flavors, sweeteners, and synthetic colors and uses only premium micellar caseins to create a protein formula that's truly time-released.


Beyond the Basics

> No Artificial Flavors, Sweeteners, or Synthetic Colors.

> Loaded with Micellar Casein.

> 24 grams of time-released protein per serving.

> Nearly 5 grams of BCAAs (Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine).

> Nearly 5 grams of Glutamine & Glutamine Precursors in every scoop.


Suggested Use: Consume approximately 1 gram of protein per pound of body weight per day through a combination of high protein foods and supplements. For best results, consume your daily protein allotment over several small meals spread evenly throughout the day. Tip: Try using "slower" Gold Standard Natural 100% Casein with "faster" proteins like Natural 100% Whey Gold Standard™ or Natural Pro Complex® at different times for maximum effectiveness. Take Gold Standard Natural 100% Casein immediately before bed and in between meals when delayed protein delivery is desired. Drink Natural 100% Whey Gold Standard or Natural Pro Complex proteins before and immediately after workouts for a rapid "shot" of amino acids.


Shaker: Using a shaker cup is the easiest and most convenient way to mix up a consistently great casein shake every time. Just add one heaping scoop to your shaker cup and then pour in 10-12 oz of your preferred beverage. Cover and shake for 25-30 seconds. Tip: Adjust the intensity by varying the amount of liquid that you use to prepare it. For a bolder flavor with slightly more body and sweetness, mix one heaping scoop with 8-10 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. For a milder tasting, less sweet shake, use 12-14 oz of liquid per scoop.


Blender: Add one heaping scoop to a blender filled with 10-12 oz of water, milk, or your favorite beverage. Blend for 20-30 seconds. Then add 3-4 ice cubes and blend for an additional 30 seconds. By adding a few high-energy ingredients to your shake you can blend up a delicious meal: try adding fresh or frozen fruits (strawberries, bananas, peaches, etc.), peanut butter, flaxseed oil, yogurt, coconut, slivered almonds, or other ingredients. By adding supplements like Micronized Creatine, Glutamine, Taurine, and/or Instantized BCAA powders, you can make an even more powerful recovery product.

Spoon Stirred: If you forgot your shaker cup or don’t have time to get out the blender, you can just add one heaping scoop to a glass filled with 10-12 oz of cold water, milk, or your favorite beverage. Then mix it up with a spoon for about 30 seconds or until powder is dissolved.

So good! This product is delicious. It is by far my favorite flavor, and I love that it doesn't have a ton of ingredients. November 13, 2013
Best casein i've tried The texture and flavor of this stuff is the best that i've tried out of several different caseins. I was very surprised, because I wasn't expecting a natural line to beat some of the artificially sweetened products. It's still thick and takes a while to mix properly, but that's going to be the case with any casein. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed. August 31, 2013
It's delicious! Even with pure water. The taste is the best in caseins. Also mixes well. Grreat nutritional values . June 9, 2013
Great Product at a great price! I've reviewed lots of protein supplements out there and also tried a few. Hard to find one that tastes great, gives you the quality protein you're looking for, one not loaded with a bunch of junk ingredients and one that is affordable. Gold Standard Natural from Vitacost is definitely a great choice. June 7, 2013
