Casein+ | Protein Powder
IT’S-ON-US MONEY-BACK GUARANTEE
Many companies offer a money-back guarantee because they know the majority of dissatisfied customers aren’t going to go through the hassle of actually returning the product to get their money back. We don’t play these games because we don’t have to, the quality of our products makes it unnecessary.
If you order any of our supplements for the first time and don’t like it, you can keep it. Just notify us and we’ll give you a full refund on the spot. No complicated forms and no return necessary.
To protect ourselves from fraud, the It’s-On-Us guarantee is only valid for first time purchases of a product, and redeemable up to three months after purchase. If you bought more than one bottle of a supplement on your first purchase and don’t like it, we would ask that you send the unopened bottles back to us for a refund because we can put them back into our sellable inventory.
One of the easiest ways to maximize muscle and strength gain and post-workout recovery is to eat enough protein.
You can get all of your protein from whole foods, of course, but many people supplement with casein for three reasons:
It’s convenient and tasty, which makes it easier to eat plenty of protein.
It’s rich in essential amino acids and well digested and absorbed, which makes it ideal for muscle-building purposes.
It’s digested slowly, providing a steady, gradual release of amino acids into the blood.
The bottom line is whether you’re trying to gain muscle, lose fat, or just maintain your body composition and health, casein protein can help.
That’s why we created Casein+, which isn’t your average casein protein powder . . .
1 Casein+ is 100% micellar casein, which is the highest quality casein you can buy.
Micellar casein is produced in a way that preserves the small bundles of protein (micelles) that are responsible for its slow-digesting properties and often destroyed during traditional manufacturing processes.
This is why Casein+ has a stellar amino acid profile, providing you with 13 grams of essential amino acids—including 3 grams of leucine, the amino acid most responsible for initiating protein synthesis—per serving.
2Casein+ is made with exceptionally high-quality milk from small, sustainable dairy farms in Ireland.
Irish dairies produce some of the healthiest, cleanest milk in the world, and we work with farms certified by Ireland’s Sustainable Dairy Assurance Scheme (SDAS), which ensures the farmers adhere to best practices in animal welfare, sustainability, product quality, traceability, and soil and grass management.
This means Casein+ is the perfect choice for clean, high-protein, healthy-for-you protein shakes that are a cut above the rest.
3Casein+ is the perfect pre-bed protein.
Research shows that eating slow-digesting protein before bed can help you recover faster from workouts and gain more muscle over time.
The primary reason for this is unless you eat very late dinners, your body’s muscle-building machinery normally lies dormant for most of the night.
By eating protein before going to sleep, however, your body can continue building and repairing muscle tissue while you rest.
Micellar casein is ideal for this purpose because of how slowly it’s digested and absorbed, providing your body with a 4-to-6-hour supply of essential amino acids required for muscle building.
4Casein+ is the best-tasting all-natural micellar casein around.
This stuff is downright delicious even when mixed with just water, and if you want to splurge and mix it with milk or a milk substitute, it’s like dessert.
5Casein+ is 100% natural.
Casein+ is naturally sweetened and flavored and contains no artificial food dyes, fillers, or other unnecessary junk.
So, if you want a clean, all-natural, delicious tasting micellar casein protein powder that’s naturally sweetened and flavored and free of chemical junk and cheap fillers, then you want Casein+.
You won’t be disappointed.
In fact, if you don’t absolutely love Casein+, just let us know and we’ll give you a full refund on the spot. No form or return necessary.
You really can’t lose, so order now and get ready to enjoy delicious, high-protein, low-calorie shakes that help you reach your fitness goals faster.Learn More
When we set out to create Casein+, we wanted to achieve several things.
1We wanted to maximize the amount of protein per scoop and minimize the carbohydrate and fat.
If you’re like us, you don’t like wasting calories on carbs and fat in protein powders.
We’d rather eat those calories, not drink them.
2We wanted it to contain no artificial sweeteners or flavors, GMOs, or other unnecessary junk.
While artificial sweeteners may not be as harmful as some people claim, research suggests that regular consumption of these chemicals may indeed be harmful to our health.
The safety of MSG is the subject of ongoing scientific discussion, but research shows that some people experience uncomfortable symptoms upon eating it and that it can be neuroactive in the brain when consumed in high dosages.
And GMO foods certainly aren’t as dangerous as alarmists would have us believe, but there are unanswered questions about how they might affect our health when consumed in large amounts over time.
3We wanted it to come from cows that weren’t treated with hormones or antibiotics.
Drinking milk from cows treated with such drugs isn’t necessarily “unhealthy,” but there’s scientific evidence it may increase the risk of disease in some people.
4We wanted it to have an outstanding taste and mouthfeel.
Too many all-natural protein powders taste mediocre at best, so we wanted to create something you will actually look forward to drinking.
Well, that’s exactly what we’ve done with Casein+.
Why Casein+ Is 100% Micellar Casein Protein
There are two types of casein protein you can buy:
Calcium caseinate is a form of casein processed to improve mixability.
Micellar casein is a higher-quality form produced in a way that preserves the small bundles of protein (micelles) that are responsible for its slow-digesting properties and are often destroyed during traditional manufacturing processes.
Supplement companies often tell us we’ll see better results with micellar casein than calcium caseinate, but there’s insufficient evidence to support this claim.
That said, micellar casein protein has a stellar amino acid profile, providing you with 13 grams of essential amino acids—including 3 grams of leucine, the amino acid most responsible for initiating protein synthesis—per serving.
Research also shows that micellar casein is digested slower than calcium caseinate, making it especially beneficial for before you go to bed.
If you haven’t eaten protein in the hour or two before going to sleep, your body’s muscle-building machinery more or less lies dormant for most of the night.
By having a serving of a slow-burning protein like casein before you go to bed, however, you can keep that machinery humming throughout the night, and studies show this improves post-workout recovery and increases muscle and strength gains over time.
Casein+ hasn’t been “amino spiked,” either, which is a common way supplement companies rip consumers off.
This scam exploits a simple loophole in supplement fact panel laws: you can add certain nitrogen-rich amino acids to your protein powder and count them toward the total protein count.
So, for example, if a company wants to sell a cheap, low-quality protein that contains just 15 grams of protein per serving, they can pad it with several grams of a cheap amino acid like alanine and legally say it contains more protein per serving than it really does.
This is misleading because protein is a complex chain of 21 different amino acids. There are no proteins that contain only one amino acid.
Amino spiking benefits supplement companies in two ways:
High-quality protein powder is expensive, and many amino acids aren’t.
Casein is harder to flavor than some amino acids, which are naturally sweet.
Why hasn’t this loophole been closed yet then, you wonder? Your guess is as good as ours.
A good way to protect yourself as a consumer, however, is to check ingredient lists, serving sizes, and amounts of protein per serving before buying.
Ingredients are listed in descending order according to predominance by weight.
That means that there’s more of the first ingredient than the second, more of the second than the third, and so forth.
So, when you’re considering buying a casein protein powder, look at the order in which the ingredients are listed and the amount of protein per scoop relative to the scoop size.
If a casein protein product has any ingredient other than calcium caseinate or micellar casein listed as the first ingredient, don’t buy it.
When that’s the case, there’s more “other stuff” (fillers, usually) in the product than casein protein powder.
Also, if a scoop of the product weighs 40 grams but there are only, let’s say, 20 grams of protein per serving, don’t buy it unless you know the other 20 grams are stuff you want. In many cases, it’s not.
Furthermore, if you see that a protein powder contains any added amino acids, be skeptical.
Many companies will promote this as a feature, but in most cases, it adds no value to the product and only means it’s more likely to be amino spiked.
So, considering everything we’ve just reviewed, a worthy casein protein powder is easy to spot:
Calcium caseinate or micellar casein listed as the first ingredient.
This means the product contains more casein protein than anything else.
A scoop size that’s relatively close to the amount of actual protein per scoop.
It’ll never match because of sweetener, flavoring, anti-clumping agents, and other necessary substances.
No added amino acids.
There’s little reason to add amino acids to casein protein, including BCAAs, and so this can mean the product is amino spiked.
Casein+ Is Made With High-Quality Milk From Small, Sustainable Irish Dairy Farms
We pay a premium to source our casein protein from small, family-owned dairies in Ireland for several reasons.
1Ireland has stricter dairy regulations than the United States. 
A key measurement of milk quality is the number of somatic cells present in it, which are a fundamental type of cell that forms the body of an organism.
Most of the somatic cells present in milk are white blood cells, which protect against infectious disease and foreign invaders.
Thus, the amount of somatic cells in milk indicates how healthy the cows are. Lower numbers of somatic cells in milk means healthier cows that, in turn, produce healthier milk.
Due to Ireland’s strict regulatory policies and long-held traditions of small, family-run dairies, research shows Irish milk generally has a lower somatic cell count (and thus higher quality) than much of the milk produced in the USA. 
This is one reason why Ireland is the 10th largest dairy export nation in the world, with over 18,500 family-owned dairy farms producing approximately 1.4 trillion gallons of milk annually.
2The milk comes from cows that spend the majority of the year outside, eating grass.
In a way, cows are like kids—the more time they spend outside, the better.
Keep in mind, however, that just because a company claims their dairy comes from “grass-fed” cows, doesn't mean they're exclusively or even mostly grass-fed.
The “grass-fed” label can be used if the cow simply ate grass at some point in its life. It does not mean it ate or eats only grass.
Unfortunately, even the “100% grass-fed” label doesn’t guarantee anything either because it’s not regulated like the organic label.
So, when you see a supplement company boldly proclaiming that its protein powder comes from grass-fed cows, take it with a grain of salt.
Just one bite of grass in their lives technically qualifies the cows as “grass-fed,” and in most cases, no agency is verifying the truthfulness of such marketing promises.
In the case of Casein+, however, it’s made with milk that comes from cows that spend the majority of the year outside, eating grass. This leads to naturally healthier herds and higher quality milk.
Additionally, many dairy cows are injected with a genetically modified growth hormone called recombinant bovine growth hormone, or rBGH, to increase milk production.
Studies suggest consuming the milk from cows treated with such drugs may increase risk of disease in some people and that more research is needed. 
Thus, we’ve chosen to source milk exclusively from farms that don’t give their cows modified growth hormones.
Antibiotics are also often administered to cows to help them overcome sickness and stay healthy. When used responsibly, these drugs are an important tool for reducing animal suffering and promoting and protecting the health and well-being of both cows and humans.
That said, when cows are receiving antibiotics, trace amounts can make it into their milk, making it unfit for human consumption.
To ensure tainted milk doesn’t find its way into the food supply, the farms we buy from remove cows being treated with antibiotics from the milk cycle until they’re healthy and testing free of drugs.
3Irish casein protein has an outstanding flavor and texture.
Irish casein is noticeably richer, creamier, and more savory than even the best American casein products.
You’ll notice the difference in your first sip!
No Artificial Sweeteners, Flavoring, Food Dyes, or Unnecessary Fillers
While artificial sweeteners may not be as dangerous as some people claim, studies suggest that regular consumption of these chemicals may indeed be harmful to our health and that more research is needed.
That’s why we’ve chosen to go with the natural sweeteners stevia and erythritol instead.
Research shows that not only are they safe, but they can also confer several health benefits, including better insulin sensitivity, a lower cholesterol profile, improved blood glucose control, potential anti-cancer effects, lower blood pressure and inflammation levels, and more.
Many supplements also contain artificial dyes, known as “azo dyes,” such as FD&C Yellow #5 (also known as tartrazine), FD&C Blue #1 (also known as Brilliant Blue), FD&C Red No. 40 (also known as Allura Red AC), and others.
As with artificial sweeteners, the consumption of azo dyes might not be as harmful as some would have you believe, but there is evidence that these chemicals can cause various negative effects in the body.
And while artificial flavors appear to be benign, they just aren’t necessary. Natural flavors taste equally good.
