Casein Zero is a premium protein powder from the laboratories of BioTech USA.
Its high protein content contributes to a growth in the muscle mass besides supporting its maintenance. BioTech USA developed this product to be taken right before going to bed. While at sleep your muscles can enjoy the supportive benefits of this unique protein blend.
Casein is high in the essential branched-chain amino acids (BCAA’s) and very high (higher than Whey) in L-Glutamine, the most abundant free amino acid in human blood. Casein protein contributes to the maintenance and growth of muscle mass and also to the maintenance of normal bones*.
This product’s milk proteins are so-called complete proteins, because they provide the body with all the necessary types of amino acids, including the 9 amino acids the body cannot synthesize and must be supplied by the diet (i.e. Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan, Valine).
Scientific studies into nutrient timing and protein types have provided us with tools to maximize training effects. The Casein milk protein is a slow-digesting type (as opposed to fast Whey proteins) that provides a sustained release of amino acids into the bloodstream possibly up to 7-8 hours.
Sometimes slower is better-especially when it comes to the rate of protein digestion. While rapid protein absorption is desirable immediately before or after exercise, delayed release is probably more beneficial throughout the remainder of the day. Casein proteins are pH sensitive and gel in the acidic environment of the stomach. As a result, it can take more than twice as long for caseins to be broken-down into their amino acid subcomponents than whey and other proteins. Casein is the most abundant protein present in milk. It is considered a high quality protein because it is easily assimilated and it supplies sufficient quantities of amino acids that cannot be synthesized by the body.
Another benefit is increased satiety (feeling of fullness or satisfaction). Casein exerts a slight pressure on the stomach walls. In effect, this pressure signals to the brain to stop eating because the stomach is full. Casein is the most slowly digested and absorbed type of protein. This helps create a "timed-release" effect, providing a steady stream of amino acids to your muscles over a long period of time. The net result is a greatly enhanced anti-catabolic environment which is much more friendly to growth and recovery.
Bodybuilders and athletes looking to build lean muscle, prevent muscle breakdown, and reduce recovery times, and individuals interested in improving the quality of their sleep can greatly benefit from casein.
Additional studies, though not as influential, have indicated casein may lower "bad" LDL cholesterol levels and increase "good" HDL cholesterol levels at the same time. In people whose immune systems were weakened by illness or disease, casein appears to demonstrate anti-viral and immune system-enhancing properties. Casein has even been linked to decreases in inflammatory factors in cardiovascular disease.

Recommended Use for Biotech USA Casein Zero:
Mix 1 scoop with 450 ml water and shake vigorously! Casein can be ideal when meals are too far apart for some reason, or before going to bed. If you use pre- and intra-workout nutrition (protein or amino acids), it may be preferable to include Casein as the main post-workout protein. Use this product in conjunction with food as part of a healthy, balanced diet, not as a substitute for such.
