What is Optimum Nutrition 100% Casein Gold Standard Protein Powder?

What are the benefits of using Optimum Nutrition 100% Casein Gold Standard Protein Powder?
Optimum Nutrition 100% Casein Gold Standard Protein Powder is the highest quality casein protein on the market. Studies have been demonstrating the amazing effectiveness of casein protein for a number of fitness-based benefits including the following:
With the steady stream of amino acids over hours, the body is able to engage in a higher level of protein synthesis. This creates the perfect anabolic environment for muscle growth.
Protects Muscle Tissue
Amino acids that are circulating in the muscle tissue help to protect from breakfast or a catabolic environment.
Once ingested, casein protein forms a slow digesting gel in the stomach. This gel releases amino acids over the course of hours, helping to avoid unnecessary cravings. (1)
