Slow Release Protein
Slow Release Protein FAQS
Slow-release protein supplements are often an afterthought in training. Trainers take shakes and use our fast-release protein powders before and during a workout, but slow-release protein products ensure you can still absorb protein, even if you’re not eating it - perfect for a pre-bedtime boost.
Think about it - we eat through the day and our protein intake is constantly being met. Then, we sleep for 8 hours and eat nothing at all. Slow-release protein powders are a simple way of ensuring that as your body rests, it’s still getting protein in to boost your intake even further. It’s the perfect option if you’re looking to bulk up or maintain your weight.
Like carbs, protein comes in slow-release and fast-release forms. We’re usually familiar with fast-release - that Whey Isolate we take before our workout, the Beef Protein Isolate we sip at lunch. These act fast - like most powders, they’re absorbed quickly and boost our protein intake there and then. Slow-release proteins take more time to digest, but their work is sustained over a longer period of time, perfect just before bedtime for example.
Slow-release protein supplements are designed to be taken as part of a healthy, balanced diet. The benefits of this slow-release are clear, but some products, such as our flapjacks, contain a greater sugar content, so please bear this in mind.
Slow release protein is the perfect solution to the trainer’s problem - there’s simply not enough hours in the day. Take some slow release protein before going to sleep, and you can be sure that as you rest, your body is still increasing its protein intake.
Slow release protein powders are suitable for anyone, and we have a range of products that will work for you, whether you’re following a gluten-free or vegetarian diet.
Unfortunately, because slow release protein powders contain Micellar Casein, which is a milk product, they are unsuitable for a vegan diet.
