Recently the question was raised as to whether or not adding milk to a post-workout concoction, such as Surge, would be detrimental or inhibitory to the proven benefits. The question was immediately greeted with what we’ve all accepted as true: that adding a milk-based protein (i.e. casein) to whey will slow the digestion and absorption of whey.
This is a belief that I have, in the past, prescribed to as well, and, to this day, I still recommend only mixing the rapid digesting and absorbing ingredients contained in a post-workout concoction with agua.
However, I have been rethinking this somewhat. For example, when we have a beautfiul protein blend like Low-Carb GROW!, which contains whey isolate, milk isolate and calcium caseinate, don’t we get a large, acute hyperaminoacidemia from the whey and a moderate, longer-lasting hyperaminoacidemia from the casein?
This is my line of thinking and seems to be what I gather from JB’s Bedtime Story, as well as from the highly overpriced Night-Time proteins.
Now, I’m not at all disagreeing with the recommendation that one should not screw with Surge and just add some high-quality H20, no, not at all. I’m just bringing forth an issue that I think needs some clarification.
