Micellar Casein

What is Micellar Casein?

Both micellar protein and whey protein come from milk, but they act in very different ways in the human body. Whey works fast... the body absorbing it quickly for an extra boost when needed. For example body builders would take a whey protein powder directly before, during, and right after a workout since it digests so quickly. [1]

Micellar casein on the other hand takes time to work its way into the cells, blood, and muscles. Those same bodybuilders would do better to take casein before going to bed or at other times when they won't be having a meal for a while. Micellar casein stays in the system longer and keeps doing its work building and helping to maintain lean muscle mass. [1]
