MUSCLETECH PLATINUM 100% CASEIN: Pure, concentrated 100% micellar casein formula
Platinum 100% Casein uses only ultra-pure, cold-processed microfiltered casein micelles, and is formulated with a filtration process that uses precision technology to remove lactose, ash, and fat. Unlike other formulas that add in other inferior forms of casein into their formulas, Platinum 100% Casein delivers 24g of the purest form of casein protein you can feed your body in every scoop – micellar casein. This source of protein contains several different bioactive fractions that are retained through the microfiltration process.
Bioactive fractions MuscleTech Platinum 100% Casein
Alpha S1 Casein – The most abundant of the four casein fractions, it may be involved in the transport of casein from the endoplasmic reticulum to the Golgi apparatus.
Alpha S2 Casein – A hydrophilic fraction of the casein micelle.
Beta Casein – This fraction may have various biological functions, and can yield bioactive peptides. Moreover, beta casein contains hydrophilic and hydrophobic sections, which are important in the physical interactions of miceller formation.
Kappa Casein – This fraction stabilizes the delicate casein micelle and helps prolong the digestion of your Platinum 100% Casein shake for a more stable amino acid supply.
See why MuscleTech Platinum 100% Casein is essential
Platinum 100% Casein Prolongs amino acid delivery to help prevent muscle breakdown. Researchers at a leading university in France showed that subjects consuming micellar casein as found in a max dose of Platinum 100% Casein experienced a 34% decrease in total body protein breakdown after a 7-hour period. Researchers went on to hypothesize that the slow-digesting properties of casein protein may have an anti-catabolic effect. This can help prevent muscle protein breakdown.
AMINO ACID PROFILE IN MUSCLETECH PLATINUM 100% CASEIN
MuscleTech Platinum 100% Casein is powered with incredibly high doses of branched chain amino acids (BCAAs), glutamine (a powerful anti-catabolic amino acid), and essential amino acids (amino acids your body needs).
Our formula provides a massive 4 g dose of glutamine and glutamine precursor in each scoop – far more than you’ll find in inferior protein sources. What’s more, each scoop provides your body with 5.2 g of BCAAs – that’s more than you’ll find in most BCAA products, let alone a protein powder! If that’s not enough, each scoop of Platinum 100% Casein provides over 10,000mg of essential amino acids – try getting that from one of those “other” protein powders.
