Pro-Isolate Micellar Casein 50/50 5lbs Physical-Sciences Physical-Sciences brings you the best of both worlds with their Pro-Isolate/Micellar Casein 50/50 protein blend. By combing a fast-digesting protein (whey protein isolate) with a slow-digesting protein (micellar casein) you are able to supply your muscles with a quick burst of amino acids from the whey isolate, followed by a slower, steadier amino acid release over time from the micellar casein.
With whey protein isolate, you are getting a protein with a biological value of 159 and an absorption rate of between 93% and 96%. That equates to less protein (and money) being wasted and more utilized to build muscle. Whey isolate is also naturally high in the branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), the most abundant amino acids in muscle tissue. On the one hand, the BCAAs have a natural tendency to promote muscle growth. On the other hand, they cannot be made within the human body and must be acquired through an outside source. With Physical-Sciences Pro-Isolate/Micellar Casein 50/50, you get over 8 grams of these powerful muscle building amino acids!
Micellar casein is rarely used these days in protein powders. The reason being is that it is very costly to manufacture, and that reduces a companyís profits. It may state micellar casein on the label, but odds are that itís not in the container. At Physical-Sciences, quality comes before profit, so we have taken the care to put true micellar casein in Pro-Isolate/Micellar Casein 50/50. Micellar casein is the only protein proven to be anti-catabolic and prevent muscle tissue breakdown. This leads to faster recovery and quicker muscle growth.
Have you ever come across a protein powder with a 30 gram serving size and contains 25 grams of protein (or something similar to this)? Letís say this protein is chocolate flavored with 2 grams of fat and no carbohydrates. That leaves only 3 grams left to flavor it and account for any vitamins and minerals, plus the moisture it naturally contains. When companies list their protein content, that is the protein in itsí natural state. They donít account for the flavoring agents and fillers they will use. To remedy this, they will lower the protein content and add more flavoring and filling agents. At Physical-Sciences, the protein content is more important than using artificial flavors and fillers. You paid for 38 grams of protein per scoop, and with Pro-Isolate/Micellar Casein 50/50, you can be sure thatís what youíll get.
