Best protein on the market
Quick shipping and product is great! Ice, milk, peanut butter and blend. Feels amazing! Thanks for being
Awesome for after workout
Grass Fed Hormone Free Premium Protein Blend
This protein seems to do the job. It's a blend of casein and whey and I believe it does what it says it does. I purchased vanilla because you can put it in anything. I recommend using almond milk (something with a little flavor) because the taste in water isn't that great. (I'm guessing because it is so clean!) However, the price was awesome for a great product! (When I ordered there wasn't an unflavored which is what I would have chosen.)

Whey Isolate, Hydrolyzed Whey, Micellar Casein
What is it?
A protein blend is a combination of various sources of protein mixed in one product. The idea is by combining proteins with varying rates of digestion and absorption that muscle protein synthesis times will be optimized. For example, whey isolate ingestion leads to a rapid spike in amino acids levels which increases muscle protein synthesis more than micellar casein. On the other hand, micellar casein tends to have a more anticatabolic effect than whey isolates and prolongs muscle protein synthesis to a greater extent. In theory, the combination of the two means greater increases in lean muscle mass and shorter recovery times compared to when ingested separately.
What does the research say?
A 2006 study conducted by Kerksick et al. examined the influence of a “fast” protein source (whey) compared to a blend of fast and slow proteins (whey and casein), ingested post-exercise over a 10-week period of resistance training. Subjects who ingested the blend of fast and slow protein showed significantly greater increases in muscle mass (+1.8 kg) than those who ingested only the fast protein.
Who is it best for?
Blends are best for individuals who want to reap the benefits from having multiple sources of protein included in one powder.
How quickly does it digest/absorb and raise amino acid levels?
No research exists at this point showing how quick and how long protein blends elevate amino acid concentrations in the blood, but in theory, it should fall somewhere in the middle between whey and casein.
When is the best time to take it?
Protein blends are best taken 30-60 minutes pre-workout, immediately post workout, between meals or even right before bed.">
