"Hydrolyzed dietary casein as compared with the intact protein reduces postprandial peripheral, but not whole-body, uptake of nitrogen in humans."
Back to Metabolic Drive and BCAAs for me. I won't be purchasing MAG-10 again once my current container is consumed, or rather, mainly burned for energy or consumed by my gut.
"hydrolyzed casein is digested more poorly, gets burned for energy to a greater degree and gets used more by the gut than intact casein; the end result of this is that hydrolyzed casein provides LESS amino acids to skeletal muscle after ingestion than intact casein protein"
You can find singular studies to validate almost anything. Not to mention the very, very small sample size mentioned by another poster.
Not to mention the fact that they sort of ignored the fact that the HC caused a faster, stronger insulin response (their data). Insulin is one of the (if not THE) most anabolic hormones in the body, that's probably relevant.
One singular study - You can usually find one to back up or cite one side of just about anything on PubMed. You will actually find a study on PubMed that supports that casein proteins cause cancer....so your probably going to die anyway.
I would not give it up so fast, this study does not directly reference the associated impact on insulin and the surge / sudden rise in blood concentration of amino acids......which is the whole point of the peri-workout nutrition protocol. The Biotest boys have always said that that Anaconda and MAG-10 are in and out of your system very quickly. It's a pulse!!
That all said....From personal expierience I am a convert to using Anaconda and MAG-10, I am on order number 5 of the Anaconda 1 Protocol package. It works, well: recovery, strength and muscle gains.
