Build muscle all night long with slow-release, high-quality casein
Most people who supplement with Casein choose it because it’s a slow-absorbing protein. Derived from milk, Casein is ideal for a protein boost before bed, to give your body the amino acids it needs for muscle repair and growth for the third of your life you spend asleep.
Casein is a unique protein derived from milk that provides a continuous release of amino acids to support muscle growth and recovery. Every serving of Driven Casein™ delivers 20 grams of 100% Micellar Casein,including 2.2 grams of L-Leucine, the Branched-Chain Amino Acid (BCAA) responsible for initiating muscle protein synthesis (mTOR), for a total of 4.9 grams of BCAAs.
If you need a premium protein that mixes easily, tastes delicious, and will nourish and sustain your muscles all hours of the day and night, order Driven Casein™ today.
Why Driven® Nutrition’s Casein Is Superior
Most supplement companies have jumped on the Casein bandwagon. So why buy your Driven Casein from us (or better yet, from your own box?)
Driven’s nutritional supplement products are created by athletes, for athletes, and we actually take them ourselves. That’s why our products all taste so much better than those mass-produced bodybuilding supplements you can buy at the big box stores.
You workout so you can achieve and maintain fitness—and so you can build a body that will allow you to meet any physical challenge that life throws at you. If you suffer from gas, nausea, bloating, diarrhea, or abdominal pain when you take your protein supplement, are you really“fit?” Driven® Nutrition has designed our fitness supplements to be easy on your stomach so you can get the most out of both your life and your workouts.
Better manufacturing & testing
Unlike some competitors’ products, Driven Casein™ is produced in facilities that are compliant with Current Good Manufacturing Practice regulations enforced by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). To ensure that every batch meets our high standards of quality and purity,every added ingredient, and every lot of finished product, is independently tested for purity and potency.
A better form of Casein
The more sophisticated “micellar” version of Casein has a natural spherical structure and is made from all five Casein milk proteins (alpha,beta, gamma, delta and kappa).
Micellar Casein molecules tend to clump together in your stomach, so it takes longer for your body to digest them. This gives you a gradual release of amino acids and high levels of the amino acid Leucine (the BCAA that is the number one instigator of muscle protein synthesis). This in turn leads to a full night of muscle building and nitrogen retention.
Working out is hard enough. That’s why we make supplementation easy with Driven Casein protein.
Casein a Better Muscle Builder Than Whey…
Don’t worry; your whey protein is still safe in the muscle-building hall of fame, but take a closer look at casein (specifically micellar casein) and a good argument could be made that it is a better all around muscle builder than whey.
Pre-Sleep Protein Ingestion to Improve the Skeletal Muscle Adaptive Response to Exercise Training
A single session of exercise stimulates muscle protein synthesis rates, and to a lesser extent, muscle protein breakdown rates [1,2]. However, the muscle protein net balance will remain negative in the absence of food intake . Protein ingestion stimulates muscle protein synthesis and inhibits muscle protein breakdown rates, resulting in net muscle protein accretion during the acute stages of post-exercise recovery .
Nothing gets into a Driven® Nutrition workout supplement unless we’re confident it can help you achieve your fitness and strength goals.Our evidence-based products are formulated according to the most persuasive clinical studies we can find. Here are just a few samples of the available research on the ingredients in our Grass-Fed Driven Whey™ Protein workout supplement.
