Kaged Muscle® KASEIN is an ultra-premium cold-processed Micellar Casein Isolate that is carefully manufactured from by an innovative microfiltration process. This filtration method preserves the structural integrity of the protein ensuring that the finished product maintains its natural micellar structure as it is found in milk.
Casein proteins are pH sensitive causing them to thicken in the acidic environment of the stomach. The proteins’ ability to form a gel in the stomach slows down the digestion rate allowing for a sustained release of amino acids. This makes casein ideal for nighttime or prolonged periods throughout the day without protein.
FEED YOUR MUSCLES WHILE YOU SLEEP
Kaged Muscle® KASEIN is a game-changing anti-catabolic protein that you can’t ignore if you are serious about doing all you can to add size and strength. During the night your body goes the longest period of time without food. Fasting for 6-8 hours, the body starts going into a catabolic state as it has gone a long duration of time without any nutrients. KASEIN slowly and continuously feeds your muscles a steady supply of essential amino acids for several hours. This plays an important part in maintaining a positive nitrogen balance and long-term anabolic state which can help avoid muscle protein breakdown.* The effects of this slow amino acid release have been investigated in a number of studies and are known to be very effective at promoting an anti-catabolic environment.*

HOW DOES MICELLAR CASEIN DIFFER FROM CALCIUM OR SODIUM CASEINATE?
Calcium Caseinate is casein protein which has been separated from skimmed milk with the use of an acid. This means the final protein is not in its original Micellar structure.
After the casein has been precipitated by acid, the mixture is heated again. This causes the protein to further thermolyze and degrade into smaller components, which agglomerate together to form clumps of curd. The curd is then dewatered by high-sheer centrifuging. At this point, the casein has been treated with acid and heat, which can harm the integrity of the protein.
Raw milk casein is made out of a complex group of protein clusters called micelles, which are bound with calcium, phosphate, and citrate ions and exist at a neutral pH of approximately 6.6, roughly the same as your body’s pH. Native Micellar Casein complements your body’s acid-base balance and will not cause an acidic effect. That’s unlike many top brands’ caseins, which are highly acidifying and need to be chemically alkalized to be edible.
HOW TO GET THE BEST OUT OF BOTH RE-KAGED AND KASEIN PROTEIN POWDERS:
During the day and post workout, use a fast-acting whey protein isolate like Kaged Muscle RE-KAGED.
At night or during the day when you will not be eating a protein source for 4+ hours, use a premium slow-release Micellar Casein such as Kaged Muscle Kasein.
The reasons: During the day and after exercise your muscles need fast-digesting protein such as whey to counteract the catabolic effect of physical exercise and help with recovery and muscle growth.
However, at night Kasein is king and has the anabolic advantage over longer periods of time due its ability to induce a slow and steady release of amino acids to your muscles for several hours, while you sleep.
