GEN-TEC NUTRITIONS CASEIN CUSTARD is a premium quality, dessert style, slow digesting milk protein sourced exclusively from New Zealand. CASEIN CUSTARD is designed to support your efforts of supplying a sustained release of essential amino acids to your muscles aiding recovery and muscle growth during sleep or other times of fasting. That is why we have blended a premium casein milk protein exclusively sourced from New Zealand. Containing high amounts of branch chain amino acids and L-Glutamine pre-cursors. CASEIN CUSTARD has an ideal amino acid profile for bodybuilders and strength training athletes with the goals of increasing lean muscle mass and improving recovery. The premium slow digesting protein is optimal for consumption before short periods of fasting such as sleep, as it digests considerably slower than whey protein. CASEIN CUSTARD is fortified with therapeutic grade colostrum with a guaranteed minimum of 35% immunoglobulin G. It has been discovered that colostrum (particularly immunoglobulin G) offers a wide spectrum of health benefits for adults such as immune support and gut health.

Gen-Tec’s Casein custard is designed on the basis that the different digesting properties of proteins determine the fate of whole body protein metabolism. Therefore, this product is designed to give cutting edge results for use as a night time protein source and recovery meal following intense exercise. The slow digesting nature of Casein custard allows more amino acids to be available for anabolic use by the muscles in the periphery (skeletal muscle) rather than be broken down and excreted at a faster rate (Deglaire et al., 2009). In addition this product contains high levels of naturally occurring Glutamine and Brach Chain Amino Acids (BCAA) which assists with muscle recovery and repair from hard training (Nosaka et al., 2006). Research indicates that casein proteins strongly inhibit muscle protein breakdown whilst providing a sustained positive nitrogen balance (muscle growth) over a 7 hour fast (Tang et al., 2009, Kerksick et al., 2006, Dangin et al.). This makes the Casein custard an ideal product for use prior to sleep (Groen et al., 2012). Casein custard is also fortified with therapeutic grade Colostrum with a guaranteed minimum of 35% immunoglobulin G. Colostrum increases gastrointestinal integrity, immune function and recovery from intense exercise (Shing et al., 2009). Research has shown that Colostrum decreased upper respiratory tract reports for infectious symptoms by 50% more than a placebo (Crooks et al., 2010). It has also has been universally reported to provide an enhancement in anaerobic performance and may assist with the increase of mucosal Immunoglobulin A which supports mucosal immunity from infections due to intense exercise (Bishop, 2010, Buckley et al., 2003, Crooks et al., 2006). Amongst all the scientifically proven benefits behind this unique blend of nutrients, the product also mixes into a dessert custard, providing the perfect night time dessert with an array of muscle building and health benefits. In summary, Casein custard provides a multifaceted approach to improving muscle growth, preventing muscle breakdown, supporting immune function and improving recovery from intense exercise. This is achieved by the unique blend of high quality Casein, high levels of Glutamine, BCAA and Colostrum.
