What we think
If you've been looking for a new protein powder to speed up your recovery, here it is! Ascent Native Fuel Micellar Casein is the new benchmark in protein purity. Casein and whey are the two proteins found in milk. Whey is typically used for post-workout recovery option because it is absorbed more quickly. Micellar Casein provides a slower, more sustained release of amino acids to help with muscle building. Rather than the immediate muscle repair that whey provides, micellar casein provides a slow & sustained release of amino acids to prevent muscle deterioration. When taken before bed, this Micellar Casein can help promote muscle building and recovery and prevent muscle breakdown, allowing you to adapt to your training and recover more quickly between sessions.
Ascent micellar casein is made using high quality milk, few ingredients, and natural sweeteners. Ascent products are third party tested and Informed Sport Certified, meaning each batch is tested to ensure it is free from banned substances. We think you'll love adding this recovery-promoting product to your bedtime routine!

How We Use It
We recommend using this product before bed to promote muscle repair and recovery during sleep, which is the most critical time for muscle building and training adaptations. Because it is in micellar form, it may not mix as well and typically requires more liquids. Add to 10-12 oz. of almond milk or preferred liquid and drink 30-60 minutes before bed. *Pro tip: heat up the liquid before mixing in the protein; it improves dissolvability and makes for a calming pre-sleep drink!
