Micellar Casein


Nutrients Direct’s Micellar Casein (also known as Milk Protein Isolate) is made in Australia using a low temperature ultrafitration process and is said to be the purest form of casein as it exists in its natural form and is also easiest to digest. Micellar Casein’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 Micellar Casein with its high amino acid profile has an anti-catabolic effect on the body enhancing muscle growth and repair through its slower absorption.

KEY BENEFITS
  • Easily digestible source of protein
  • Purest form of casein available
  • Slow release properties – perfect for consumption at night or before bed

Discover the Fitness Related Benefits of Micellar Casein Protein Powder!

Micellar Casein Protein Powder is an excellent supplement for athletes trying to increase their sports performance, muscle mass or endurance. If you are considering using a protein powder to work towards your fitness goals, please read our information about Micellar Casein Protein Powder below!

What Is Micellar Casein Protein Powder?

Our Micellar Casein is the purest form of casein on the supplement market today. It is better known under the name Milk Protein Isolate, which is created through a unique ultrafiltration process.

Micellar Casein is used by athletes who require a prolonged release of amino acids, which means the muscles of the athlete are fuelled for a longer period of time. The slow-release qualities of Micellar Casein suggest the supplement is best used between training sessions or before bed.

ND Micellar Casein can be used by athletes with faster metabolism, since the slow-release qualities of this supplement will slow down the absorption and digestion rate of this protein powder. ND Micellar Casein also has an anti-catabolic effect, which means that muscle breakdown is less likely.

What Is the Casein Inside Micellar Casein?

Casein is a specific type of protein, more specifically a phosphoprotein, which can be found in the milk of mammals. The most common source of casein is currently cow’s milk, where approximately 80% of the protein content is pure casein.

In addition to its use in supplements, casein can also be found in other products such as cheese or as an additive in pre-made foods. Don’t go eating tons of cheese though, because the levels of casein present in foods are a lot lower than the levels found in protein supplements.

What Are the Main Benefits of Micellar Casein Supplements?

When you use a Micellar Casein supplement, your body will get access to the complete amino acid profile of the supplement; this includes a steady supply of branched chain amino acids. Branched chain amino acids can usually be found in dairy products and include leucine, isoleucine and valine.

Athletes who are using a supplement containing branched chain amino acids can count on loads of benefits, since branched chain amino acids are called the building blocks of the human body for a reason. Branched chain amino acids account for 35% of your muscle mass and must be present for muscle growth to take place.

The branched chain amino acids inside Micellar Casein function as nitrogen carriers in the human body; this means that these useful substances help to create other amino acids needed for an anabolic muscle reaction (the stage in which muscles grow). Their process involves transforming a lot of simple amino acids into a complex structure. During this process, branched chain amino acids can also promote the production of insulin, which allows blood to feed the muscle cells with more energy.

When Do Branched Chain Amino Acids Kick in?

Naturally, branched chain amino acids will only start to work when the body needs them to. If you are quite active, then branched chain amino acids will be working for you more than for people who are inactive, because the catabolic state (where the body is desperate for more nutrients) is usually a result of rigorous training.

When your body finds itself in a catabolic state, your body will be depleted of glycogen. In order to counter this depletion, the body has to create a lot of glucose by converting a substance called L-alanine. As soon as the body received branched chain amino acids, the body knows to stop the protein synthesis in the muscles, especially when strain is being put on the body. If this signal is not there, protein synthesis could continue during your workout and muscle could start to break down.

To fuel your body with the right amount of branched chain amino acids, athletes need approximately a minimum of four grams of BCAA’s before and after training. Even though you will still get the benefits from smaller levels, a higher dose will be much more effective if you require increased sports performance and muscle recovery.

Could I Use Branched Chain Amino Acids on Their Own?

Nutrients Direct offers supplement options for athletes who only want to take branched chain amino acids as a supplement to increase sports performance, muscle building and endurance. Inside our range of supplements, customers could benefit from our Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s) supplement, which provides you with the three essential branched chain amino acids for your fitness goals, more specifically leucine, isoleucine and valine.

Athletes who are just starting out on their fitness journey may want to take advantage of our bundles, which include a selection of supplements meant to reach a specific fitness goal. Inside our extensive range, athletes can find dedicated bundles for lean muscle, muscle building, sport performance, weight loss and women’s fitness.

Some of the bundles available at Nutrients Direct may include some of our useful accessories, such as the Nutrients Direct shaker and scales. Of course, each bundle also contains a decent supply of the supplements you will probably be using for a certain amount of time. Check out each bundle to get to your fitness goal a little faster!

Casein proteins are incredibly effective when they are used in the right manner. Unfortunately, not all athletes are aware that there is a difference between the absorption speed of whey protein and casein protein supplements, so beginners may need to do some research before they start taking their protein supplements. As a rule of thumb, whey protein supplements are best used during the day, where the body needs a quicker supply of protein. Casein protein is better used before bedtime, since it can release a steady supply of protein when your body does not have access to nutrients.

Once the athlete is familiar with his or her protein supplements, they can start to use a combination of protein supplements to reach their fitness goals. Of course, the protein you consume must match your current diet, because extra protein will go to waste if you already have sufficient protein in your diet and still use your protein supplements. The trick to using protein supplements right is finding the shortage of protein in your diet and supplement accordingly. So, if you only have a minimal shortage of protein to match your rigorous exercise routine, you can simply supplement with one casein or whey protein supplement. If you have a larger shortage, you can look at adding multiple.
