The Power of Casein!

The Power of Casein!

Casein is very popular and for good reason. Casein protein is also known as sleep protein or slow proteins. Over a period of up to 7 hours, casein can release a balanced amount of amino acids, unlike other types of protein. When you train regularly, it is important to provide your body with proteins and amino acids as constantly as possible. In this article we discuss the power of casein and we have also selected 2 delicious recipes with casein for you. Read on quick.

What is casein?

Both casein and whey are obtained from cow's milk. In total, cow's milk contains 3% protein. Of that, 80% is casein and 20% is whey protein. Casein and whey contain all nine essential amino acids, which your body cannot make itself but needs. Proteins are building blocks for the body and are essential for building or maintaining muscle mass. Because casein is in milk protein, it is automatically found in many other products. For example, yogurt, cottage cheese, cheese, various types of bakery products and also in baby food.

slow proteins

As we mentioned above, the main advantage of casein is that it is absorbed more slowly by the body than whey. As a result, the body has a stable elevated amino acid level for up to seven hours after ingesting milk or other dairy products. Casein also contains a complex structure that holds calcium and phosphate, as it were. This makes it easier for the body to absorb these minerals.

Calorie burn

It is important to know that our bodies have to make some effort to absorb casein protein. It makes your body have to work hard and thereby burn calories and increase metabolism. In addition, casein also makes you feel full, which is a big advantage because it reduces the risk of unnecessary snacking. On top of these factors, casein is also low in calories and extremely low in fat.

Good for your teeth, muscle strength and weight loss

But that's not all. Casein has even more benefits. Casein is good for the teeth, it helps you build muscle strength, it lowers your recovery time and it helps you lose weight! And that is of course perfect if you want to lose those winter kilos.

How do you use casein?

If you want to take the casein quickly, you can mix it with milk or water for a quick shake. If you are not a fan of shakes, you can also make different bakes with casein. For example protein bars, muffins, cookies etc. for a healthy bite in the evenings/before going to bed. You can make "healthy" versions of your favorite snacks that deliver proteins and amino acids to your body for a longer period of time during the night. These will enable you to achieve your sports goals faster.
