What is the difference between a whey protein and a whey/casein blend?
"In order to promote muscle growth, you should feed your muscles more protein than they need."
Between the two main types, whey and casein, whey is the "faster" protein supplement because its amino acids are absorbed quickly by your body. A whey protein is often taken immediately after a workout or even as you finish your workout to allow amino acid uptake at a critical timing for your muscle recovery and building. Your body can break it down and absorb it in roughly 20 minutes. So your body can more quickly rebuild and grow the muscle that was broken down during your workout.
While casein is the "slower" supplement — since it’s digested more slowly — it can be taken at any time of day, adding to your total protein intake for the day. Just like whey protein, casein protein provides all the essential amino acids your body needs. As opposed to whey, casein can be thought of as a "time-release" protein since it’s digested more slowly. After you consume casein, your body’s absorption of amino acids and creation or synthesis of proteins will peak after roughly 3 to 4 hours.
Both proteins can help your muscles grow. That’s because they re-form fatigued muscles after exercise by providing crucial amino acids needed to rebuild the muscle fibers.
Regardless of which type you choose, the most important factor is how much total protein you eat throughout the day.
