Kaged Muscle® KASEIN is an ultra-premium cold-processed Micellar Casein Isolate that is carefully manufactured from by an innovative microfiltration process. This filtration method preserves the structural integrity of the protein ensuring that the finished product maintains its natural micellar structure as it is found in milk.
Casein proteins are pH sensitive causing them to thicken in the acidic environment of the stomach. The proteins’ ability to form a gel in the stomach slows down the digestion rate allowing for a sustained release of amino acids. This makes casein ideal for nighttime or prolonged periods throughout the day without protein.
Kaged Muscle® KASEIN is a game-changing anti-catabolic protein that you can’t ignore if you are serious about doing all you can to add size and strength. During the night your body goes the longest period of time without food. Fasting for 6-8 hours, the body starts going into a catabolic state as it has gone a long duration of time without any nutrients. KASEIN slowly and continuously feeds your muscles a steady supply of essential amino acids for several hours. This plays an important part in maintaining a positive nitrogen balance and long-term anabolic state which can help avoid muscle protein breakdown.* The effects of this slow amino acid release have been investigated in a number of studies and are known to be very effective at promoting an anti-catabolic environment.*
Not only did the Kaged Muscle R&D team build a top quality Micellar Casein, but they also took it the next level by nailing amazing milkshake-like flavors for both our vanilla and chocolate options – without using artificial flavors or colors. These flavors are like nothing else you have ever tried! Our R&D team spent over 6 months just working on the flavor systems alone. There’s no reason why you cannot get the results you crave while enjoying the taste of your supplements at the same time.
The answer is simple: all our ingredients meet Kaged Muscle Micropure™ standards which means they are third-party tested for purity and potency. In return for a premium price, Kaged Muscle’s vendors and manufacturers commit to strict ethical, quality, and testing standards, ensuring our ingredients are manufactured with care. Micropure™ Micellar Casein Isolate is the first of a new generation of dairy ingredients which combine top quality nutrition and enhanced functionality. The starting point for this ultra-premium slow-release protein is the clean raw milk source used. It is then gently processed by an innovative low-temperature ceramic microfiltration method that preserves the natural micellar structure.
We are going to reveal some tricks used by many leading supplement companies. This may ruffle some feathers; however, it is our job to make sure you get the facts so you can purchase based on factual knowledge and not marketing hype that over promises and under delivers. If you are serious with your supplements and training, you owe it to yourself to know these facts before purchasing another casein supplement. There are many low-cost manufacturing methods for casein protein that many top brands use to cut corners with your results, while increasing their bottom line by using cheaply made ingredients that save them money.
The type used in the French study was Micellar Casein, which is isolated from milk by filtration, rather than by use of acid or heat. The filtration method we use preserves the structural integrity of the protein, unlike what occurs in other processing methods that many others use. When heat or acid is used to separate casein out of milk, the micelle’s structures are altered, resulting in a loss of biological activity and digestibility.
Calcium Caseinate is casein protein which has been separated from skimmed milk with the use of an acid. This means the final protein is not in its original Micellar structure.
After the casein has been precipitated by acid, the mixture is heated again. This causes the protein to further thermolyze and degrade into smaller components, which agglomerate together to form clumps of curd. The curd is then dewatered by high-sheer centrifuging. At this point, the casein has been treated with acid and heat, which can harm the integrity of the protein.
Raw milk casein is made out of a complex group of protein clusters called micelles, which are bound with calcium, phosphate, and citrate ions and exist at a neutral pH of approximately 6.6, roughly the same as your body’s pH. Native Micellar Casein complements your body’s acid-base balance and will not cause an acidic effect. That’s unlike many top brands’ caseins, which are highly acidifying and need to be chemically alkalized to be edible.
How can you tell which kind of casein you are taking? In the nutrition panel the first ingredient listed should be Micellar Casein. If the brand you are taking is not Micellar Casein, then it’s time for a trade-in.
During the day and post workout, use a fast-acting whey protein isolate like Kaged Muscle RE-KAGED.
At night or during the day when you will not be eating a protein source for 4+ hours, use a premium slow-release Micellar Casein such as Kaged Muscle Kasein.
During the day and after exercise your muscles need fast-digesting protein such as whey to counteract the catabolic effect of physical exercise and help with recovery and muscle growth.
However, at night Kasein is king and has the anabolic advantage over longer periods of time due its ability to induce a slow and steady release of amino acids to your muscles for several hours, while you sleep.
If you are currently not feeding your body with a sustained release of high-quality amino acids while you sleep, you are making a BIG mistake! Nighttime is one of the most critical windows to give your muscles a steady supply of amino acids in order to remain nitrogen positive. This is one major way Kris Gethin can support his recovery so he can annihilate his regular DTP workouts and cardio sessions and grow year-after-year.
