Reflex Micellar Casein 909g Micellar casein provides a lengthy release of amino acids because of its unique digestibility. It forms a gel in the stomach, slowing the transit time in the digestive system thus slowing the digestion of the protein.  This makes it absolutely ideal when a slow & lengthy supply of protein is needed.  The micellar casein offered by Reflex Nutrition is manufactured by ultra filtration of skimmed milk
- this process removes excess lactose & fat. The resulting raw material is about 85% protein. In a ground breaking study (1), carried out by Dr Yves Boire, the differences in metabolic responses of whey protein & casein were individually observed over a 7 hour period in 16 young & healthy volunteers. The findings were very interesting, & have shown that both Casein & Whey have very different applications when it comes to maintaining & building muscle tissue.      Micellar Casein research findings: Casein was found to inhibit muscle breakdown by 34% over a 7 hour period Blood plasma amino acid concentrations remained significantly higher over a 7 hour period with casein compared to whey Blood plasma amino acid concentrations dropped dramatically after 3 hours in the group consuming whey Although blood plasma levels dropped dramatically with whey, the net increase in protein synthesis was boosted by 68% The reason for Caseins ability to sustain such a lengthy release of amino acids is because of its unique digestibility. It forms a gel in the stomach, slowing the transit time in the digestive system, & thus slows the digestion of the protein. Using Micellar Casein Micellar Casein is a very popular choice amongst dedicated bodybuilders.  Consume one serving before bedtime. You can also take a serving before a prolonged period of time (where more than 3 hours passes before food is eaten again). What makes Reflex Micellar Casein different from the competition? Micellar Casein from Reflex Nutrition is an instant mixing time-release protein product that is made from fresh skimmed milk. It is not to be confused with acid casein or caseinates which are made using manufacturing processes which can denature the protein. The protein found in Micellar Casein is un-denatured, providing Approx. 80% Casein protein & 20% Whey protein.
