Micellar Casein is a slowly digested, complete protein, with an excellent amino acid profile that typically has over 4,500 mg of BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids) per 1 scoop serving. Because Micellar Casein thickens in the low pH of the stomach, slowing down its entry into the intestines, its amino acids are released in a sustained manner. Slower digestion ensures continuous availability of amino acids for the body. NOW® Micellar Casein mixes easily in your favorite beverage and is an ideal choice for sustained protein support.
Suggested Usage: Add 1 level scoop (24 g) daily to 8 oz of cold water, milk or your favorite juice, and blend.
