Is Casein Protein Powder safe?
Casein protein powder is made from milk and offers an extremely safe source of additional protein to boost your intake. As casein protein is digested far more slowly by the body that other sources, it provides a slow and constant release of amino acids into the blood stream over a much longer period of time. This means it can provide lower stress on the body and may be more suitable for those with pre-existing health problems that are effected by protein intake. However it is still recommended that you consult with a health professional if you have a pre-existing condition that is effected by high protein consumption.
Casein protein powder is also usually high in lactose and those with lactose intolerance should consider an alternative protein source such as egg protein powder. Egg protein is also slower to digest, though not as slow digesting as casein.
