What is Slow Release Protein and When Should You Have It?
Slow Release protein is what we at Neat call something that’s often known as Casein. Casein is the solid protein in milk and is what’s used to make cheese. It takes longer to break down, meaning a more efficient release of those all important amino acids.
Because Slow Release feeds your muscles over time, it’s perfect for before bed to help your muscles recover while you’re sleeping. It’s also good if you know you’re going to have a long break between meals and want something to keep you feeling fuller.
Long distance runners or walkers may find Slow Release a good form of protein for recovering from long treks. It’s not just shakes either, you can make great puddings and desserts with Slow Release to get those muscles primed for recovery!
