When you’re trying to burn fat or build muscle, getting enough protein is super important to achieving the results you’re after. And since your post-workout recovery continues well into the night, you need a protein source that provides long-term recovery support! The slow-digesting protein source provided by casein helps preserve lean muscle mass while you’re cutting calories, and helps to rebuild the muscle you’ve broken down during a tough workout. When it comes to proper recovery, you can’t afford to leave anything up to chance!
Improved Lean Muscle Building
A quick digesting protein powder like whey is perfect for a post-workout shake, but that’s not the only time you need protein. Casein is a milk protein that’s digested and absorbed very slowly, helping to keep your muscles fed all night long so that you can get the maximum results from your hard work. After a tough workout your muscles are left tired and broken down. In order to properly rebuild your muscles, you need protein! Giving your muscles a slow-digesting protein source that lasts all night long will help to keep your recovery going strong!
Promote A Good Night’s Sleep
Your recovery begins shortly after your workout ends, but it continues well into the hours when you’re asleep. Since your post-workout recovery continues well into the night, it’s important that you have adequate restful sleep. A casein powder with L-Theanine to promote relaxation helps you to have more restful sleep, promoting an even better post-workout recovery! This lets you wake up feeling energized, recovered, and ready to crush another awesome day.
Should I use IdealLean Casein or IdealLean Whey Protein or both?
Casein and whey are two of the best protein options out there. If you’ve wondered which one is better, the answer is both of them! While they do share some similarities, they’re actually pretty different. They each have unique benefits, and together they can help maximize lean muscle building, fat loss, and help you get the most out of your hard work! We recommend using our Whey protein directly after a workout and the Casein as a snack or to add extra protein to your diet and to help you feel full during the day so you can stay on track with your nutritional goals.
What is Micellar Casein?
Casein is derived from the Latin caseus, meaning cheese, and refers to a group of phosphor-proteins that are found in milk. It is these milk ‘solids’ that form the bulk of the curds when they are separated from the whey, that are then used to make cheese, one of the oldest manufactured foods.
What is L-Theanine?
Theanine is an amino acid (a building block for proteins) commonly found in green tea or occasionally in mushrooms in small amounts. (There is no green tea in Nighttime Casein).
Why should I take IdealLean Nighttime Casein?
IdealLean Nighttime Casein provides 24g of slow-releasing protein to keep your muscles fed while you sleep. To optimize your sleep for even better recovery, we’ve also added 200mg L-Theanine to promote relaxation, helping you get an even better night’s rest!
Will this product make me sleepy and/or drowsy?

When you work out, you break down muscle and use up your body’s fuel stores. L-Glutamine helps replenish what you lose when you exercise, and helps to fasttrack the muscle rebuilding process!
Is this product habit forming? I hear lots of sleep agents are.

Why is the consistency thicker than whey protein?
Due to the fact that casein is derived from the curds of the milk, the appearance is a lot thicker than many other types of protein. You may need to carefully measure the amount of water and powder to ensure you get a smooth consistency.
