CALCIUM CASEINATE


Nutrients Direct uses New Zealand made Calcium Caseinate which is a slow release protein that is high in amino acids. Calcium Caseinate’s unique time-release qualities allows it to fuel muscles for a prolonged period, making it ideal for use between training sessions, at night or for those with faster metabolisms.

The slow release nature of Calcium Caseinate with its high amino acid profile has an anti-catabolic effect on the body enhancing muscle growth and repair through its slower absorption.

We’ve got a range of casein proteins available online, including micellar casein protein powder, so be sure to contact us if you need assistance with finding the right solution for your fitness goals.

Increase Sports Performance and Muscle Mass with Calcium Caseinate

When you have a fast metabolism and need a slow-release protein to provide you with increased sports performance and muscle mass, you can certainly count on our Calcium Caseinate, one of our protein powders that packs quite a punch. To learn more about this protein powder from our caseins protein range, please read the information provided by Nutrients Direct below.

What Is a Slow-Release Protein?

To understand the benefits of Calcium Caseinate protein powder, we must first understand what a slow-release protein is. A slow-release protein powder provides a steady stream of amino acids over the course of several hours, contrary to a fast-release protein that usually delivers the nutrients within half an hour. While most athletes look for a fast-release protein for their training, there are a number of athletes with fast metabolisms that could benefit more from a slow-release protein powder such as Calcium Caseinate.

What Is Calcium Caseinate?

Calcium Caseinate is a supplement containing slow-release proteins and a high amino acid profile. Thanks to the slow-release properties of the supplement, Calcium Casein is mainly suitable for athletes with faster metabolisms, or athletes who want to keep feeding their muscle mass during the night.

What Are the Benefits of Calcium Caseinate?

The slow-release qualities of Calcium Caseinate are certainly some of the biggest benefits. Of course, we also have to take into account the anti-catabolic effect of the amino acids inside this supplement. Catabolism is a metabolic process, which breaks down molecules into smaller units and oxidises them and release energy into the body. Catabolism occurs in the human body when there are insufficient nutrients available to create energy, subsequently this process will look at other available structures with nutrients already present inside the body such as muscles. In short, catabolism will break down muscle if there are not sufficient nutrients present; this is why athletes want to avoid this process when it is not needed. Fortunately, chances of the body going into a catabolic state are greatly reduced when supplemented with anti-catabolic amino acids.

How to Use Calcium Caseinate?

Calcium Caseinate is best used between training sessions, or late at night to promote muscle growth and recovery while you are sleeping.

To create your shake, mix approximate one levelled scoop of the supplement (30 grams) with up to 250 millilitres of water. Shake the mixture for thirty seconds and consume the shake. Alternatively, you could make the shake thirty minutes before you use it. However, 30 minutes is the maximum allowed time between preparation and consumption.

Any Additional Tips for Muscle Gains?

There are some minor changes you can make in your lifestyle to ensure maximum muscle gain. Below, you will find a short overview containing some of the things you can do to make muscle growth a little quicker and more noticeable.

Ensure the Right Protein Intake

Many beginners believe that a lot of strength exercise alone is going to provide them with the muscles they have always dreamed of. Unfortunately, this is far from the truth, because the body needs the right amount of protein to grow and repair muscles. If this protein is not present in your diet, you will find that your rigorous training regime has little to no effect.

The right amount of protein can be obtained from various places. Firstly, you can make sure there is enough protein in your diet, for example by adding some chicken or another protein-rich food to your weekly meal plan. If you still do not get enough protein from your diet, for example due to a very rigorous exercise routine, then you can also choose a protein supplement to get there faster.

Eat More Calories

When you are skinny by nature, you are probably blessed with a fast metabolism. While most people are trying to lose weight would give their right arm for a faster metabolism, it can be frustrating for the skinny guy desperately trying to gain muscle.

To counter a faster metabolism, there are several things you could do. Firstly, you could implement a slow-release protein supplement, which provides you with amino acids when your body is about to go into a catabolic state. Secondly, you could eat a lot more calories than you are now.

Getting the right number of calories on a daily basis can be somewhat hard to estimate, even with all the fancy formulas available today. Everyone is unique, so the body will burn what it will burn where calories are concerned. If you are not gaining weight with the calories you are currently on, and tried adjusting to a higher calorie intake already, it may be a good idea to contact a nutritionist about your problem. Together with an experienced nutritionist, you can work out exactly what it is going to take for you to get those gains.

Lift Three Times a Week

The exercise you do also has an impact on the muscle you gain; this is why a lot of trainers will recommend lifting when you want your muscles to grow. Recent studies have indicated that weight-related training sessions can increase your protein synthesis up to 48 hours after your training, a fact that you could use for your benefit.

Get Carbohydrates After Training

Before you hit your rest day, be sure to pile up on the carbohydrates right after your training. Studies have shown that the use of carbs after training helps to rebuild muscles faster when you are resting, subsequently making you more effective during your next workout session.

Conclusion

Calcium Caseinate can certainly put you on the right track where muscle gains are concerned, but a combination of this supplement with the right exercise and nutrition will provide the results you are after. If you want more supplements to build muscle, be sure to have a look at our muscle building stack for additional options!

Aside from Calcium Caseinate, there are other protein supplements at Nutrients Direct that could contribute to your fitness goals. If you are a beginner, it is advised to check out the different types of protein powders before you decide on a specific protein supplement. As you may already know, different types of protein can have different effects, so you must find the protein supplement that provides you with benefits for your specific fitness goals. If you have problems deciding, or experience difficulties finding the right protein powder for your fitness goal, you can use our “My Goal” filter to determine which protein powder will provide you with the most benefit.

Not all protein powders at Nutrients Direct are derived from animal products either, because we also have vegetable based protein. Not all athletes consume animal-based products, so we must make sure that these athletes get access to a high-quality protein powder as well. In addition to the basic casein and whey protein powders, you can also count on Nutrients Direct for options such as Pea Protein Isolate, Rice Protein Isolate and Soy Protein Isolate. These protein powders are vegetarian and vegan friendly, but also suitable for people with lactose intolerance. So, if you cannot tolerate regular animal-based protein powders, be sure to have a look at our vegetable-based options.
