My bad thats right micellar casein proteins are the slow acting ones that you digest after whey is gone.

also you want protein before bed because you heal while you sleep, that's why you should take protein before bed, and you would want a cassein type before bed, slower obsorbtion= protein delivery all throughout the night if u don't have a cassein type protein, 1 cup of cotage cheese does the trick too.

Hello, I am very new to this forum in fact this will be my first post.

Anyway, since proteins are the building blocks for muscle I believe there are four key times that they need to be consumed and that you are using the proper types. I will not go into great detail about the different types but feel it is necessary to briefly discuss whey and casein.

Whey Protein - digested and absorbed quickly, filling your blood with amino acids, but this effect does not last long. Whey stops supporting muscle growth in as little as 2 hours after ingestion.

Casein Protein - A very slow digesting protein that decreases muscle break down. Usually stays working for 4-5 hours after ingestion.

I blend whey and casein for the best results

1. Post-workout (MOST IMPORTANT!)- You can increase protein synthesis with a quick-digesting protein shake; I recommend a blend of whey and casein.

2. Pre-workout - Baylor University research shows that pre- and post-workout outperforms plain whey after training; I recommend a blend of whey and casein.

3. First thing in the morning - stop your body from breaking down muscle protein into fuel; I recommend whey hydrolysate (the fastest absorbing protein available).

4. Bedtime - again to help during the fasting state; I recommend casein or a blend.

Timing is the key to getting the most out of supplements!

As for the question of Muscle Milk or Whey? Muscle Milk is a blend of whey and casein proteins so it is great for most most of your protein needs. There are a ton of protein supplements out there don't tie yourself to one brand just pay attention to what you are buying.

Best of luck and I hope I helped.
