How to boost muscle recovery during the night? Rediscover casein protein
For an athlete a good night sleep is crucial. The “overnight recovery concept” allows athletes to extend their recovery period during sleep. At that time you aren’t feeding your body with protein but it still has the opportunity to recover. That’s where overnight recovery can help; for up to seven hours after consumption, due to the sustained release of amino acids. The elite athletes we work with increasingly include it in their diets because of the benefits on their performance, and this will drive wider adoption with mainstream consumers as ‘the next new thing’.
