Best Casein Protein Powders

(Last Updated On: June 12, 2019)

This is interesting because casein is found in milk and in the coagulated form of cheese. It is found in processed foods, adhesives, and other industrial products. This product is made in natural foods and it sounds like man has put it into industrial products. This product is supposed to help the human body became stronger. There are some very good casein products on the market today. This article will cover some of those good-quality casein products.

The product releases time-delayed amino acids to support muscle growth and recovery. The product is good for overnight muscle growth and recovery. The product is banned substance and gluten-free.

Feedback: The customer decided to switch products and he used this “new” product for years. The product was the tried and true Optimum Nutrition Casein but the customer came back to Dymatize. The other product is more expensive per/lb than Dymatize and Dymatize has more BCAA’s and it has 2.3 grams of L-Leucine which is proven to help with protein synthesis and the common knowledge is that you build muscle while you sleep not while you workout. This is an added benefits.

The customer says the 4lb. container does not have 4lbs. of powder in it the customer claims. The customer says the scoop is very big and you cannot scoop out 55 scoops of powder. It went too fast so the customer decided to measure how much powder there was in the container. He concluded there were only 46.8 ounces of powder in the container or 2.9 lbs. The company says the container has 4lbs. In it but the client claims there are only 2.9 lbs. If this is true then the company is stealing from its customers. The customer says the protein is good but getting cheated is not cool. The customer rated the product 3-stars which is a bit high if the company is ripping off customers.

This customer says the cinnamon flavor tastes awful and it made her sick. She just got tired of drinking after she drank it so much. She says the hype about how good the product tastes is baloney. The other flavors are decent and all the flavors mix up easily. The customer said they went through 4 lbs. Of chocolate and cookies and cream in record time. The customer liked the chocolate the best and cookies and cream came in second. The customer rated the product 4 stars when you would think she would have rated it 5-stars.

The customer has been using Cinnamon Bun for years and stayed away from the chocolate because it received bad reviews years ago. The customer broke down and finally tried the chocolate and the customer now loves chocolate. The customer loves the product and she says it is so good. The customer rated the product 5-stars.

The customer says finding the right protein powder that tastes good and works well is hard to find. The customer’s friend recommended the cookies and cream flavor so the customer tried it. It was not grainy and it dissolved well with her blender bottle (it mixes the drink in the bottle). The customer does a high-impact workout for 2 hours every time she comes home in the evening. Immediately, I sometimes use this as a meal replacement when she is too tired to have a small meal after a workout. She usually intakes half the suggested serving size if she plans to have a meal.

Six Star Elite Series Casein Protein Powder

The product will do its work and each scoop contains up to 24g of protein and 4.9g of BCAAs, leucine, isoleucine and valine will get you going in the morning or whenever you use the product. The product contains 100% is quality casein protein that absorbs slowly into the body. In hours, your body will fully recover from your intense workout. This slow absorption rate will feed amino acids into the muscles all night long causing the muscles to grow.

The ingredients in the product are stronger than whey protein. In experiments conducted the participants built 4x the muscle mass and 2x the strength when using the ingredients in this product. The participants did not use whey protein. The product is engineered for active people male or female.

Feedback: The customer says the product will control your hunger and this is what the customer was looking for in this type of product. This product has controlled this customers hunger so he will not eat when it is not time to eat. The customer uses the product in the morning and in the evening and keeps the customer from eating when it is not a planned time to eat. Mixes well with a spoon and it is thick as a milkshake even if it is mixed in water. The customer rated the product 5-stars but the customer did not really say how the product benefitted him beyond controlling his hunger urges.

The customer claims the ingredient list on the actual container is different than what the ingredient list says on the picture. The customer says the actual ingredient list says “contains Soy or Sunflower Lecithin”. Which one is it because the customer bought the product because he thought it did not contain soy. He is allergic to soy. The customer is implying the product is falsely advertised and the customer rated the product 1-star.

Whether what the customer says is true or not, it cannot be validated because he did not provide any images in the review to support these claims. So, the evidence he presents is weak at best. The customer says years ago they use to take metabolic optimizer that they kept in a tin can. It was smooth and did not taste grainy. He switched to this product and says it has a great taste.

He says he has tried every cheap protein under the sun and none of them worked well like this one did. The other proteins charged from $60.00 to $100.00 dollars and they did not work. He says they are dirt clods in a plastic container which is a unique way of putting it. The customer says the product works well and the product was rated 5-stars. This customer does not elaborate on how the product has helped his body. More information is needed to say if this product is beneficial or not.

This is a very detailed and informative review. In it, the customer writes that they had experienced a lot of soreness for days after intense workouts.

The customer says the product has helped him to recover quicker after he works out.

She says she would come back to the product if they return the product to the original formula. The customer rated the product 2-stars. Despite the bad taste, the customer does not tell us how the product benefitted her body.

Feedback: The customer claims that it is rare to find a protein powder that is processed in the United States but what is wrong with ingredients produced in foreign countries? The customer has been using this company’s products for years. The customer says they will not consume products that have ingredients lists that are paragraphs long. Is there any protein powders that have ingredient lists paragraphs long? The customer says they will not buy products made in China. What is wrong with products made in China?

The customer claims that products made by another company are stamped with “Made in the USA”. But the customer says the products are sent to China processed there and then sent back to the United States. These products are shipped back in plastic tubs. Does the client have any solid proof to support these claims? They do not supply any solid facts to prove these observations.

The customer asks if this process is the cheapest way to make the product but they do not want to know if this is true or not.

There are some good casein products on the market available for purchase. A few of those products have been reviewed in this article. Each product has its own unique characteristics that will help the body to recover quickly from an intense workout. The body will grow muscle mass during sleep as the muscles recover from the workout.

One reviewer speculated that one company sent their product to China to have the product processed and sent back to the states in a plastic tub. The customer has no proof of this observation. Most of the reviews were positive about the various products. Review the reviews and choose the product that will work best for you.

There was one very positive review where one customer said he was working out for 3 months with friends. They were outperforming him for the first two months. Then he started taking a casein supplement and in the third month, he started outperforming his friends. So, this supplement can really make a difference in one’s workout performance.
