Select Protein by PEScience
NATURE had it right. It wasn’t until recently that scientists finally decided to give all these 100% whey products a run for their money. And the results were absolutely shocking.
Nature had it right. When researchers at the world-renowned Mayo Clinic tested a combination of whey + casein protein, as found naturally in milk protein, they discovered that the two protein sources work together in a synergistic manner to build lean muscle, Yes…synergistic. Meaning when taken together it is better than taking just one or the other alone.
100% whey protein in isolation only gets you so far… it can spike protein synthesis with an influx of amino acids, but quickly returns to baseline, leaving you where you started.
Enter casein, a slower-digesting protein that’s typically consumed for its anti-catabolic properties as it promotes a steady release of amino acids over time. Casein actually results in more retention of ingested protein than whey!
In another published study, researchers found the combination of whey protein with casein protein resulted in a quick increase in protein synthesis along with a sustained elevation in plasma leucine levels. Plasma leucine levels are a key dictator of muscle protein synthesis, and thus, a combination of whey protein and casein protein may serve to maximize muscle protein accumulation.
Whey protein hits the bloodstream at a fast rate, but it is casein protein that has been shown to create the strongest leucine balance, possibly due to less oxidative processes taking place. It only makes sense to consume them together.
