Gold Standard Natural 100% Casein sets the standard for slow digestion protein support.
Unlike other formulas that use inferior forms of casein, Gold Standard Natural 100% Casein uses premium slow-digestion casein in its purest form for a sustained-release of amino acids that primes muscles for growth and repair.

Micellar Casein – Casein’s greatest strength comes in the aspect of timing. This power-packed protein takes a significant amount of time for the stomach to break down into amino acids, allowing to deliver a slow and steady flow of protein into your bloodstream that lasts for several hours. Drinking a casein-rich shake before bed or on recovery days keeps you fueled and primed for optimal muscle growth and recovery.
Glutamine – With nearly 5 grams of added glutamine and glutamic acid per scoop, Natural 100% Casein works to support recovery, immunity, and endurance. It also helps to increase muscle glycogen restocking after exercise, refueling muscles for your next big workout.
Calcium – Calcium may just be the most important nutrient for an athlete. As an essential vitamin, calcium keeps bones, joints, and teeth strong and protected against the rigorous effects of training.
