Whey Isolate and Micellar Casein Blend
BeFit™ WHEY PROTEIN is a great ally to help you satisfy cravings, curb hunger, and help your muscles recover after workouts. It is also great for on-the-go shakes, which fit nicely into your busy lifestyle. Additionally, BeFit™ WHEY PROTEIN is great for baking, making pancakes, smoothies and a variety of other tasty treats!*
BeFit™ WHEY PROTEIN helps satisfy your appetite and supports muscle recovery by combining two different types of protein into one delicious, naturally flavored powder. Whey protein isolate is quickly digested and absorbed, helping you feel full faster. Casein protein is considered a slow-release protein, which enable the naturally occurring amino acids a longer window of time to help muscles recover. The combination of whey and casein in one supplement means you’re getting the best of both worlds.*
The Science Behind It: Protein
Phenomenal Taste/ Sweetened with Stevia
Proteins are important for weight loss and exercise recovery because they provide the body with the amino acids that are necessary for the formation of new muscle and help protect muscle while dieting. However, not all dietary proteins provide the same benefits. Casein and whey, the major proteins found in milk, both provide all of the essential amino acids, but they are distinct from one another in that whey is digested quickly and casein is digested slowly. What does this mean for your nutrition plan? You need both whey and casein to maximize the benefits of natural milk proteins.*
Whey encourages protein synthesis
Because whey travels through the digestive system quickly, it creates a significant increase in plasma amino acids in a brief period of time. This results in an increase in protein synthesis without affecting protein breakdown. The high levels of leucine found in whey further stimulate protein synthesis, A process that burns through quite a few calories. In addition, it stimulates fatty acid oxidation(fat burning).*
Achieve a positive protein balance with casein
The most abundant protein in milk, casein on its own is relatively insoluble. Because of this insolubility, it forms structures called micelles that make it more soluble in water. When milk is processed, casein peptides and micelle structures are broken up and a gelatinous material is formed, making it more difficult for humans to digest and also helps curb appetite. This results in a slow, steady release of amino acids into the bloodstream. *
Whey and casein work better together
The combination of a rapid increase in protein synthesis from whey and reduced protein breakdown from casein is ideal for dieting and strength training. Consuming a combination of whey and casein one hour before and immediately after exercise can provide the protein balance you need for effective training. Research demonstrates that the combination of these proteins while taken as part of an exercise program supports greater decreases in body fat and greater increases in lean muscle.*
Frequently Asked Questions
A: • Within 20 minutes post workout • As a meal replacement • As an in-between meals shake
A: In order to get the chocolate flavor just right it requires both flavoring and cocoa. Vanilla, just requires flavoring to achieve a great taste. The cocoa adds about 1 gram per serving.
